So Today I decided to take my Wife and family to Brunch at this lackluster establishment. I would like to to thank this place for completely ruining mother's day brunch for my family ! They Brought us in and didn't tell what to do ....There few trays they had half were empty. There food that they had was sub par at best . No service what so over . Eggs Benedict was gross, the ham looked like left overs . The fruit looked like can fruit . The bacon was not done well at all. Everything about our experience was awful ! This place charged $40.00 for disgusting food and there were 5 of us .Then mind it was a buffet . They decided to tip them selves $ 50.00 !! For what ?? #1 it's a buffet ! #2 it's horrible service and food !. I WILL NEVER BE Back. Thanks again for Ruining Mother's Day BrunchMore
Ave look more like a cocktail bar than a restaurant, and I had pretty high expectations. In fact, my mojito was depressing: not a single mint leave and a rather artificial flavor.
We had some calamari, average/low quality, and crabcakes, which were ok.
Love this place! I usually stop by here during happy hour, I haven't been here yet when it turn into a club. The have great hand crafted cocktails, the bartenders are really friendly and attentive, and the food is great too! My favorite cocktail is...the raspberry fizz.More
Looked for someplace here in Stockton for Linda and I to have brunch that we haven't been to before. The Ave was awesome! No wait, service was instant for drinks and the appetizers were quick to follow, both were incredible. Bottomless Mimosas and a great...and unique Bloody Mary. Our server, Nadia was on the spot with everything prior to our asking for it. Came back many times to make sure everything was perfect. I would recommend asking for her if you ever try this place. The price was as to be expected for a Sunday brunch. We didn't find any faults with The Ave. Completely Satisfied!More
The owner makes the Ave a come back place to eat. He is the life of the party.
My wife and I have never had a bad dinner and the Sunday brunch is a must visit.
Kevin, keep up the great spirit you make us...feel like we are you best friends.More
A uniquely different venue that goes over the top to provide a feast of a five course brunch, any one of which could be a filling meal in and of itself. The food was fresh, tasty, inventive and interesting...not to mention abundant.
There was a...warmth in the trendy decorated cavernous warehouse like interior. At first we were reluctant to have brunch on the cushy comfortable couches rather than a conventional table (which was also an option) but soon nestled in like it was our own living room. We were in town for wine tasting otherwise the bottomless mimosa complimentary with brunch would have seemed like a grand idea.
We were repeatedly and often asked if we needed anything else as the overstaffed venue with surprisingly few guests (6 total) searched for something to do, yet the service was a bit off. Certain basics were overlooked, ketchup was in short supply and metered out in small thimbles, We were at first seated next to what was being set up as a baby shower and later requested to move as the crowd of well wishers and toddlers surrounded our table...perhaps this could have been better anticipated by the staff. Hence the 4 out of 5 rating.
After having Stockton/Lodi as a semi annual destination for years it is refreshing to find someplace I can heartily recommend for brunch as a tasty, filling and unique experience amidst a crowded sea of greasy spooned alternatives. The brunch was outstanding.More
