Surprise!!

Everything we ate - at the bar or in the dining room - was excellent!! From breakfast, to appetizers, to "shares", to full meals - we were very pleasantly pleased with quality and quantity.

I ate here two times, once for dinner and once for breakfast. At dinner, my wife and I had a drink, clam chowder and a ceasar salad. The food was very good. Service was quick and attentive. I would give the restaurant a higher rating for this, except for breakfast. We had breakfast on a Sunday morning at about 9... More

I've been here a couple of times - once for dinner and once for breakfast. It's nothing special, though it is convenient if you are staying in the Hyatt. Branch out and try the other restaurants in the area, though - you'll find better prices for the same type of average food!

I am sorry to give such a poor review, but the meal just went from bad to worse. I made a reservation for dinner for six. After being seated, we were handed a menu that appeared to be simply a bar/lounge menu, not the dinner menu found on-line. I was told they were doing some remodeling (as we could tell... More

The meal and service were both great. I had just finished my clam chowder when an acquaintance walked in and joined me; the service staff made the addition seamlessly and served my excellent scallops with her soup. The atmosphere left much to be desired.....even a screen between the bar area and the restaurant would be an improvement ......they could take... More

We had dinner here after seeing the Lion King. We knew it would be pricy so we decided to split a few apps and keep it simple. We were delighted that they had a kids buffet set up for $10. My 5 year old was excited at all the kid friendly choices. Chicken tenders, mac and cheese, mini cheese burgers,... More

Chef Armetta has come up with a fantastic menu for Avenue One and I was treated to a sampler plate. Clam chowder, succulent chicken, beef and fish and desserts tto make you weep. I was full to the brim but happy as a Boston clam!
