Small dining room and bar area 1/2 the length of restaurant. Noisy but tolerable. Wait staff informative, attentive to exceed your expectations. But the best part is the food choices and their flavors....WOW! One had the special of the night which was yellowfin tuna on a sweet potato and hummus purée with Brussels sprouts. Another had the short ribs, which... More

We were visiting family in Providence, and four of us decided to try eight different appetizers. All were excellent, and what stood out was that each had totally different flavorings, sauces, etc. To me, this, and the impeccable and friendly service, is the mark of a great restaurant. I know we are looking forward to our next visit, to try... More

My boyfriend and I came to have dinner in this place. Delicious food, simple but elegant décor, great service, pricey but worth it.

On Saturday July 1st a group of 8 of us went to Avenue N to celebrate a birthday. We were greeted warmly by one of the owners who was the hostess that night. Our waitress was excellent she had a great personality and was a great server. For appetizers we got Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts, Fried Chicken Sliders, Littleneck Clams,... More

I have been to Avenue N several times for drinks and appetizers, but never for a meal. If the appetizers are any indication of the quality of the rest of the menu, I have really missed something! The restaurant features local produce and interesting presentations (try the Kung Pao brussel sprouts!). I have been there with a gluten-free vegetarian, and... More

Avenu eN does it right every time. I have enjoyed their food from the day they opened the doors. Their grilled pizza is amazing followed by their burger. Terrific atmosphere, reasonable prices, fantastic people.

My friend and I left Persimmon hungry and thirsty due to their minuscule portions. We decided to move on to Avenue N for a real meal and were not disappointed. The staff was great, the service was timely, and the food and cocktails were excellent. Thanks for turning a negative experience at another restaurant into a positive one at your... More

This is possibly one of the BEST restaurants in all of RI. Not just the East Bay or Rumford. Nick and Tracy rock this little town and do it right! Between them and their top notch staff, the service is 5 star plus. They always use locally sourced and top quality foods for everything they make. And, special orders, no... More

Oh my God! This place was great! I had seen the chef on "Beat Bobby Flay" and when I went to Providence, I made it a point to go to this fabulous restaurant. The chef, Nick, was so nice. He came to our table and chatted awhile. The food was great. A must for anyone traveling through Rhode Island!

Seating is tight but friendly. Lots of interesting drinks and food. Everything we had was a "OH you have to taste this" thing.
