"A piece of me doesn't want to give a great review! What a nice find for us. I've thought about going but always ventured more toward the crossroads region. But luckily we ventured into Avenues where we were greated very nicely from the get go. Excellent bar seating, as well as table seating that is quite comfortable, great drink choices, and visually pleasing to the eye throughout the establishment. Our server, Alisa, who we've had twice now ( yes, we reserved another table the same night we were there... that good), was awesome!
Very friendly, gracious, professional, and knew the menu well.
We've certainly found a new "home" when heading out for a nice time!
Thanks Avenues Bistro!!"

"Walk-ins were seated ahead of us. We arrived at 12:15 for our 12:30 Sunday reservation and were seated at 1 PM. 2 walk-in groups (1 smaller and 1 larger) came in while we waited and told them they did not have reservations but were seated ahead of us anyway. Bottomless beverages are only bottomless if the waiter actually comes back to check on you. Breakfast burger (my regular choice) was too salty to eat and did not come with the fried egg as listed in the menu. When I pointed out to the waiter he walked off without saying a word and returned 15 minutes later with an over easy fried egg. We are regulars and will probably return but attention needs to be paid to maintaining quality service and a quality product."

"My first time visiting on the weekend. Didn't realize Avenues only served brunch on Saturdays and Sunday's. However, what I ordered was excellent. My dining companions thought the same thing. It was good to see so many people there."

"I have often enjoyed Sunday brunch at Avenues Bistro as well as the occasional lunch but it has not been on my dinner list; I'll be certain not to make that error again! Joined by friends from Chicago, we thoroughly enjoyed dinner in all respects. Even with a last-minute reservation, we were seated promptly and served with moderate care. Our server was training a new staff member and was slightly distracted as a result but not detrimentally so.
Each of our party ordered a different salad (house, roasted beet, spinach, and Caesar). They were attractively plated and, by all reports, quite tasty, reflecting a balance of greens, accoutrements, and dressing.
The ladies ordered coq au vin and expressed delight at the richness of flavor and tenderness. Cooked with the skin on, the meat truly fell off the bone. The other gentleman ordered butter chicken and asked to have the spice level ramped up a bit. He appreciated the layers of flavor but indicated it was still relatively mild. The basmati rice was perfectly cooked and soaked up the delicious sauce. I ordered Zurich-style pork and was enchanted with the combination of pork tenderloin, ham, and bacon, all cooked in a luscious sauce dominated by mushrooms. The earthy flavors complemented one another but never overpowered.
We opted to skip dessert but were tempted by the offerings. The relaxed setting and pace of the meal (on a Friday night) contributed to a most enjoyable evening. Considering the quality of the food and sensible portions, dinner at Avenues was also an excellent value."

"we had a salad and 2 tastables (santa fe chicken pizza and sweet thai chicken lettuce wraps) - enough food for more than 2 of us. Service was excellent (our server was Jeff) and everything was delivered hot (or cold as necessary), nicely cooked and well presented. This is a very friendly and inviting atmostphere"
