Based on some nasty reviews here I almost avoided Avalon, but my girl friend's local contacts had rated it so highly I decided to trust them over the negative visitors. I was rewarded with a lovely summer dining experience in a club that was lively and upscale even on a Monday night. The security forces smiled nicely. Everyone smiled nicely. The cosmopolitans were strong. We had some great caviar and great service. The terrace looks out on a lovely street from a third floor. It was romantic and perfect on this Monday night.
