Avenue 805 is an ok restaurant, but the atmosphere is just ok, food is just ok. Nothing special and no real reason to return.

Extremely rude and narcissistic feel and attitude of staff and management. I will never step foot in this restaurant again. COMPLETE DETAILS The Attitude: Narcissistic and Arrogant Let me start by saying there is an overly upper-crust feel and attitude in the air as if you have just walked into a Ruth's Chris or Fleming's Steakhouse, yet chances are you...

Loved the look of this place walking in, but that's where the highlights ended for me. The service was very mediocre and they didn't have any beer selection on tap that night because they had "burst". Of course, I understand that bad thing can happen to good restaurants so if that was the only issue, I would have been more... More

The atmosphere was the best part. The food was not worth the price. It seems like they are trying really hard to make it fancier than it really is. I did leave my debt card on accident and when I called back they had it and kept it safe for me. I am very grateful for that. I just didn't... More

Food was good, nice selection of brunch drinks, Bloody Mary bar seemed popular. None of the wait you see along main/cary at 11 on a sunday morning, and comparable brunch food.

First time - tried to get reservations before but to no avail. Got an early - 5:30 - reservation, and was first customer; arriving as they opened. By 6:30, few tables were available. Small, tucked away place. Had the Crab/Shrimp/Scallop cake - different - heavy breading, but good. Wife had Chicken Marsala - lighted breaded, but good. Kids - 11... More

Don't get me wrong the whole meal was great. Eggplant soup served with crustini and goat cheese was a highlight also. Cheesecake made on premises was to our taste. Not the 'creamy' kind. Real substance.

This restaurant was a big disappointment. The crabcakes were nothing but filler and burned on the ouside. The green beans were fresh and not overcooked, but tasted like they were smothered in burnt oil. My coffee was strong and hot, but likely in the pot for awhile. I am not crazy about salad but that was the only easy thing... More

I've been here for dinner a few times and enjoyed it, but I have to watch my pennies these days. I find that Avenue 805 has become a favorite Sunday brunch spot. It's quiet & softly lit, the perfect place start a lazy day with good conversation with friends without having to shout. The restaurant is small & intimate with... More

When White Dog closed it's doors here, we were saddened as we had designated it as "our place". When we found 805, we knew we had found a wonderful replacement for "our place". We have thoroughly enjoyed every meal we have had there. I find nothing over seasoned and the menu choices are wonderful I have taken the entire family... More
