Although it is a beautiful venue I over heard the male owner telling an employee that he was going to kill them and cut their eyes out ! I will never return and suggest that you not give your business to a man who threatens women in this manner!

Located on the popular Merrimon Avenue in North Asheville, Avenue M is one of the favorite eateries of Asheville locals. The food is consistently good, the service excellent and the menu changes frequently. There is outside and inside seating with a large bar and community tables. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to eat at an independently owned... More

We arrived at 6:30pm on a Wednesday night. Much to our delight, it was Half-Priced Wine night! Our server was Sarah. She was knowledgeable, patient, and helpful with choices. She was tolerant of our - or shall I say MY - nearly obsessive questions about business, menu choices, clientele, etc. We had the Shrimp and Salmon Nachos as an appetizer.... More

Down home, friendly, creative and of course exquisite food. My wife and I just returned home after venturing out to Avenue M in the latest snowstorm this winter. I was pleasantly surprised that the restaurant was not only open but actually busy -- it takes a lot to keep Ashevillians from our favorite eating places. All generations, couples, families. the...

My partner agreed with us (6 total) that the food was fantastic. A Sunday brunch can be tough to beat...no one likes to work on a Sunday; but here the servers seemed to enjoy it. Everyone had something different, yet all the 6 entrees came within a minute of each other. Coffee or any other beverage was quickly served and... More

Since I love everything on the menu--the most difficult thing about going to Ave M is deciding what to eat!! The stuffed figs & the Blue Crab Rangoons make my mouth water--they are so good!The Cobb salad & the grilled salmon salad are two of my favorites. My #1 all time favorite is the Moroccan Vegetable Tagine with cinnamon &... More

Very fresh ingredients and anything-but-run-of-the-mill recipes! Each time I have visited, our server or hostess has really gone out of the way for us. Once at breakfast I spilled my juice and before... More

Avenue M is a ploace to go when you don't want to cook, or you' re in a meeting late. it is a neighborhood spot. The menu is varied with ethnoc influences - Mexican, Morocan, etc. The prices are moderate, and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. They have several vegetarian offerings.
