Death Ave Restaurant & Brewing Co Ratings and Reviews
This place is super fun. Where else can you get a black martini made with squid ink?! The service is extremely warm and friendly but totally professional. The drinks are fabulous, the food is delicious and prepared with love. This visit was only my second, a couple years apart, and I'd forgotten what a delightful find it is. I'll make an effort to get back more often. Really great. Moussaka interpretation I found supremely fantastic. And the privacy of the booths is so rare and just what I love in a restaurant when you want to focus on your friends and the conversation. So respectful.
Amazing food and good food choices for various tastes. They have little booths for privacy and the noise level is very acceptable for an NYC restaurant. The decor is really beautiful with brick and reclaimed wood and iron.
Service was reasonably fast.
It's a bit pricey for what it is, but it's NYC, so to be expected.
Lovely little spot on ugly 10th Avenue. Decor is stylish and there are 2-3 enclave booths that can be curtained off for privacy. Outdoor space looks great. Food though is meh. And waaaay over priced for what it is. Brunch, for example, $18 for an egg bacon and cheese? WInes by the glass $15 - 18. No way. Burgers were fair. Fries, average. Those souvlaki tacos, fair. Salads had a very bland dressing. Wanted to love it as it is a charming space and staff is lovely but everything was just mediocre and overpriced.
A good find in a neighborhood with few options. Menu is eclectic, with lots of fun, casual versions of greek food, e.g. souvlaki taco, greek-inspired sliders. There were serious, traditional dishes as well, though we didn't try them. I doubt the cuisine would win many Michelin stars, but it was tasty, the portions were generous, and overall the atmosphere was warm and festive. The space looks thoroughly renovated and is quite handsome, yet not too slick, still warm and welcoming. A nice place for casual dining. I would definitely return when in the area.
Good food and good ambiance. Came here after a friend's art show opening. We had made a reservation and Death Row had our table ready for us. Because we were a few less than expected they easily moved us to one of the tables in their cubby sections just past the bar. So intimate and lovely and easy to talk closely with friends. We all had different meals and they were all delicious. My sausage tacos were especially wonderful. I love going to this restaurant!
Steve and the rest of the staff at Death Ave. really made our night out a special experience. The shots of house-infused banana bourbon were so smooth and flavorful! Their beer selection is good, but it will become even better once their own brews go on tap (They said some time next month!). The dip trio was an excellent appetizer; the portion size was great and the flavor was exceptional. We also had the Souvlaki "Tacos" with eggplant which were incredible! We will definitely be back!
The place shouldn't be open yet. The food was ok, service was absolutely horrible there were 3 tables in the entire restaurant and the waiter messed up our order and would never check on our table we had to get up to pay. Also they are not a brewery they don't brew their own beer yet this should be noted the place is not good at all I would never come back here to eat. Maybe in the summer when the backyard opens
The decor is nice, but the food is very over-priced for what it is. You can get much better Greek ("Hellenic") food elsewhere, with more vibrant flavors, and better craft cocktails elsewhere as well. Bottles of wine that retail for $12 were $17/glass. Not remotely worth the price.
Great space and interesting menu. The food was very good. Service was slow due to a large party ahead of us. Waiter was attentive and apologetic for the wait. Would go again - lots of different seating areas with private booths and an outdoor central patio. Very nice place.
Service was fast, servers were polite. Ordered a small appetiser, one small side (that I was talked into because the appetiser portion size was so small), and a small desert that somehow all cost fifty dollars. I will probably not return because the prices are absurd for the very modest portions.
I made reservations based on the reviews and menu. I had high expectations and they were exceeded in every way. Open table offered the option of having flowers sent to the table, they were there when we arrived. I noted it was an anniversary dinner, they set us in one of their curtained, private alcoves which was surprisingly quiet give the busy bar. The drinks with infused spirits set the tone for a classy, fun evening. The food was outstanding, I had the Hellenic BBQ with steak and B had the souvlaki tacos.. You must try! They finished off our evening with a suppose dessert with a candle (unplanned by me) and two glasses of champagne. The staff was very attentive, they didn't seem to mind whose table was whose.. They all kept a discreet eye in case you needed anything. They are all knowledgable about the menu and cocktail items.
I could not have asked for a more wonderful evening. Please.. Please try this place. The bar crowd was hopping, restaurant is low key dress code and it can be as fancy or as casual as you want it to be. Well done!
Slow and inattentive service. A bit overpriced.
Ordered drinks and ended up leaving before ordering food.
In Death Ave's defense, it still seems as though they're trying to get the restaurant/brewery operational, whilst still trying to serve customers. Not sure that approach is working all that well at the moment.
We may try again in a few months, once the restaurant has gotten into more of a rhythm.
