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.

We were there a loong hour and a half for our simple burgers and kids meals in a half empty restaurant What was even more frustrating was to find out the food didn't live up to its prices!!

The Avenue Grill has a rather interesting setup, as it it decorated in such as way as to enhance a sense of privacy wherever you are seated. This reviewer found the service rather slow and the food unremarkable. The waiter brought first two drinks, and the rest came about 10 minutes later. We were a party of four, yet no... More

We were staying at the Marriott, so thought we would eat in the hotel since we didn't arrive until 8:30. Our service was excellent, but the food was just fine. My husband ordered a steak and I had the rock shrimp ravioli. The ravioli was lighter than I expected, which was a good thing. But overall, just an average meal.... More

We were looking specifically for an above-average restaurant within a few blocks of Metro Centre, so we checked availability via OpenTable. Avenue Grill appeared to be a nice choice and we had not been there. It's not easy to see from the street - as it's inside the massive JW Marriott. They were very quiet the evening we dined. Our...
