I was a little apprehensive about eating here after reading reviews about the long wait times and poor service on Yelp. This was not my experience at all. The service was great, everyone was friendly and accommodating, and we were seated right away. We went around 7 pm on a Thursday night. We brought our dog and the waitress gave... More

Went here with family and had a good time. Service and food were wonderful even though it was crowded. Good ambiance and noise level. Sit in or outside.i would go back again.

We have been here serveral times, most recently a couple of weeks ago with former neighbor. Great food, service, real neighborhood feel. They have several specials during the week - one night is half price for a bottle of wine. Management and staff make you feel like a regular even if you are not.

This place is our neighborhood hangout! Always good food and wonderful service, and I feel comfortable bringing my young children here. They are always accommodating and make kids feel special! A very diverse menu, so everyone can find something! Brunch is great too!!

Usually like Avenue M but the new young hostess needs to be yanked down a few notches, along with her rude, haughty attitude. We were treated rudely tonight, so it will be awhile before we grace Avenue M again. Customers can be treated with respect or not come back.

We have eaten dinner at Ave M often and have always enjoyed our meal, the service and the ambience. Last Sunday we were searching for a brunch restaurant to share with friends. We chose Avenue M since we had always had good dinners there. Brunch was amazing. My husband had, in his words, the best spinach mushroom omelet ever. I... More
