We have loved this place since they first opened and have never been disappointed. The chef chooses locally sourced foods and prepares them with great skill. He offers some great twists with his dishes-violet mustard people! This is one of very few places where I always trust the fish. They offer outdoor seating weather permitting and just expanded their dining... More

Avenue B has a fairly unique and eclectic menu every night. The food is very, very good. Interesting mixes of flavors. Always good food, and very good service.

We order mussels at most restaurants when we see them on the menu & the PEI mussels @ Avenue B are the best we have ever had! The smoky tomato sauce was so delicious. The meatloaf was also wonderful. So moist & tasty, as well as a beautiful presentation. The helpings were good sized. Did not have room for dessert.... More

My wife and I have been to Avenue B 3 or 4 times and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. It is a BYOB restaurant which is an obvious plus. Up until recently the dining area was quite small - not more than a few tables. However, on returning last week we found that they had taken on adjacent space which... More

Went to this lovely restaurant as a little get away for my husband and myself. Had a wonderful evening. We love BYOB's first off. The food was original and quite good. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. Great overall.

We went for a family celebration. The food was salty but good and it is a BYOB. We brought 3 bottles of wine, one which was screw top. We opened the screw top bottle and poured our own wine. They charged $8 corkage fee for the first bottle and then an additional $5 corkage fee for each of the two... More

Avenue B is one of those places you hear about, and when you get the chance - you know immediately you'll be back! The menu is varied, with some really interesting choices. I can honestly say that, wit the exception of a few diner "blue plate specials," this was the first higher end restaurant where I ordered meatloaf (one of... More

The food was really good, but be prepared... Most of the creations are quite heavy. We had the routine to start which was sweet potato fries with cheddar cheese and pork belly. Sooo good. Then my husband's meatloaf came out (feta chove potatoes, juicy meatloaf, fried onions) and my pot roast pasta (had a cheese sauce).. Again, both were tasty... More
