This little restaurant has a very creative menu. Many items looked very appetizing - we settled on 2 to share. The food was very good (actually the bread that came before the meal was outstanding!). But 2 issues: the prices are very expensive for the...More

We decided one night that we didn't want to cook dinner, so we returned to 12th Avenue Grill. What a great decision! We had fresh, wonderful Kusshi oysters and a sashimi plate of Ahi and Salmon. Perfect meal! I can't wait to return!
