We celebrated my husbans's birthday and there are not many options in January in Avalon. This restaurant is a byob and it is open on weekends off-season. Our server Lauren was extremely accommodating and so sweet. The food is excellent and the hardest part is deciding what to order since there are so many wonderful selections that the chef Grier prepares.
Their malted milk gelati is to die for. The ambiance, hospitality and overall dining experience was fantastic. This restaurant won't be a hidden treasure for long!

This restaurant is open all year round, but only on weekends in the off season. We went on a Sunday which offers buy one entree, get another for half price. This was a nice bonus since the food was wonderful. We started with a Seaford Cowder soup which was creamy and delicious. The girls had Lamb Chops served with a great sause, resoto with squash and asparagras. It was the best I ever had. The men ordered veal and were very happy. The meat was tender and seasoned perfectly served over pasta with a garlic sauce. The servings were large . We diffinately will be going back to Avalon Rose. Reservations should be made since seating is limited.

We were seated right away. Waitress greeted us immediately, opened our wine and was very friendly. The salads were served split between us and were amazing. The jersey tomatoes in November were equivalent to those we have in the summer. I had the lamb special and the chops were cOoked perfectly. We are Definately coming back here. The chef, Grier came out to talk with us. Our waitress Lauren was very kind, sweet and knowledgeable. We had a terrific evening!!!!

Went for my mother's birthday. Extremely disappointed to have chosen this place for such an occasion. Server took 20 minutes before even getting to our table to give us the specials. Once the order was taken, it took a FULL hour to receive 2 salads and 1 soup! The soup was overly salty and the caesar salad croutons were stale. As an experienced food service worker of 10 years, I let our server know to "fire" the food immediately. Unfortunately, our entrees took another 45 minutes before arriving to our table. My "medium-rare" steak was charred almost half-way through and nearly inedible. Our tables' other meals were fair at-best. The server seemed as if she had something more important to be doing than providing our table service. All in all, it was a terrible experience for my mother's birthday.
