Had the strip with the roasted mushrooms and goat cheese. What a great combination! Add to this great service that is attentive to details but not overbearing. Don't pass up this good restaurant especially if you're staying at the Marriott.

We were at the JW Marriott for a family wedding. Because we weren't part of the wedding party we booked a dinner at the Avenue Grill for our group of 10. The food was excellent! Our server was totally awesome. She was very attentive to each of us and our requests. Since large parties have a set gratuity, some servers... More

With so many dining choices, we honestly wouldn't have eaten here at the hotel except for the horrific downpour! However we were very pleased with our server Liscombe and the food. The best dish was the Truffle Lobster Mac and Cheese but everything we ordered was fresh and tasty. I also liked that I got 1000 points from Open Table... More

As expected, expensive, but not bad. Restaurant within hotel. Service was good. The Caesar salad was a bit soggy but the crab cake was delicious. The grilled salmon is not bad, but would have preferred wild it to be wild. Dessert can be skipped.

Our table ordered the roast chicken, the sea bass, and the burger. Of the three dishes, the burger was the best though the side of fries were a bit over salted. The roast chicken and the sea bass were small portioned plates with eye-catching presentation; not enough for a hungry man. Also, both dishes weren't well-balanced from a flavor perspective....

Had an evening meal here as staying at the Marriott. Menu had a good selection of items but disappointed with the portion sizes - I had the scallop to start and for the price paid was disappointed to just have the one scallop on my plate. The mains were a similar small portion. Wouldn't have minded if the price wasn't... More

Had a kale salad and beer. The dressing was good, we were seated by the window, the servers were friendly and efficient. My friends seemed to like their orders. Getting into the restaurant through the enormous and cavernous hotel is a bit weird (why no entry from the street?). the decor is a bit too diner-isa, they could do a... More

If you're a crab cake fan, this is the place to go. If you're a club sandwich, it doesn't get much better than this one. Everything we ordered here was delicious and the service was fantastic. Our waiter, I think his name was Lipscomb, was friendly and made great suggestions. It's convenient being in the hotel. Oh, and don't forget... More

Surprising lack of restaurants in the area so we decided to use the hotel. Very pleasant atmosphere and very attentive staff, probably too attentive! We only wanted something light so I had a chicken caesar salad and my wife had the risotto, both were very good quality. Not fine dining but suited exactly what we were looking for.
