    A wonderful restaurant with a really great special offer fixed price menu plus glass of excellent Cuidad Real wine. The Spanish waiters and Maitre D' were excellent - friendly, helpful and attentive without being overly so. Really this restaurant - as always in our experience - delivers excellence and deserves its reputation. It is not in the most popular of locations but is really conveniently placed for easy access for get-togethers with people coming from north, west and south London.

    Service in London restaurants since covid has gone rapidly downhill so it was great to see this restaurant doing a fantastic job at getting the service right...especially the head manager who always had his eye on the customer. The food was great and my one small issue was that the pistachio tart (desert) lacked much flavour. But the pastry was light and crisp so that was a bonus.

    Last time I was at The Avenue was Dec 2020. It's definitely levelled up. The food was delicious, ambience and service were great. However still think the live singer was too loud we were straining to hear each other. I do love the live music but just need to lower the volume..

    Lovely bright environment, with a mix of seating types which made it feel relaxed and spacious. We had the lunch 2 corse set menu, excellent value for money. The food was very delicious, full of flavour and a generous portion… too full to have a dessert. It was mid week so pretty quiet and lacked a bit of the atmosphere and attention to service you might expect if busier. Overall a very pleasant experience

    Decent brunch but food could’ve been tastier. Dessert with pancakes was the best course. The music thanks to the in-house DJ makes the atmosphere lively but was a bit difficult to have a conversation without raising my voice throughout. Waiters can be a bit more attentive too.

    Our family of 4 with 2 daughters aged 6 & 11 had a lovely weekend lunch at Avenue. Avenue has used COVID social distancing rules in their favour by replacing some chairs with little sofas along the walls, thus creating a lounge atmosphere which was further enhanced by live music. These two improvements gave the place the vibe which is hardly possible recreate at home and really delivers the "go out" factor. Very enjoyable and positive experience

    First time at Avenue and really glad I did. It’s now on my list for regular visits. Great COVID-19 compliance which does not detract from excellent service. We dined from the prefix fixe Christmas menu. Lot’s of choice and everything was delicious and well presented.

    Havent been here for a while but always loved this restaurant so chose it for my birthday dinner. I found the music so loud couldnt comfortable speak with friends, the chicken for the Sunday roast was tasteless and dry but vegetables and yorkshire pud were lovely. The pancakes were rubbery and obviously shop bought. I would still go back as I like the restaurant and was good value for a piccadilly venue.

    Such a lovely treat and great vibe in the restaurant. The only issue was when we said we were not doing the bottomless drinks, no one came back to take a general drinks order for quite some time. Other than that the ambience was great with the live singing. Pretty venue which is almost hidden away. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning.

    The restaurant was lovely. The decor and the ambience was elegant. The chandelier in the middle made of the glasses was a centre of attraction. The food was really tasty and delicious. Although the Salmon dish was a bit of a regular dish, the rest of the food was delicious. The only downside was the desserts weren’t varied enough personally. All in all, happy to visit again.

    Really great restaurant for breakfast in the heart of St James. Excellent for a business breakfast as you can hear the others at your table - without hearing other tables. Extensive breakfast menu with something for every taste. Open from 8am. And not stupidly expensive.
