Service was rushed and not up to normal standards. Was in and out in about an hour. Had to ask for bread and cutlery. Food was just okay and not worth the $65 fixed price. Coq au vin was a minuscule chicken thigh with hardly any meat on the bone. Desert was delivered different than ordered and when questioned the waiter they said they had made a change....why they didn’t tell me this when I ordered it at the beginning of the meal was very odd. Will not be going back.

Fair for the price. The turbot was not fully cooked and luke warm. Our mistake not sending it back but we hate doing that as the meals get out of whack.

They weren't even open! Open Table should be more on the ball.

My husband and I enjoyed the ambience, service and general feel of the restaurant. We both enjoyed our meals (dinner with salads, mains and a shared dessert). The food was tasty and well presented but my selection (steak frites) was far too salty!! The first bite burned my lips and tongue.

We have been to Avenue before and the food was good and it was this time as well. Service was lacking as we ordered coffee and after twenty minutes had to remind the waiter that we did not have coffee. By far the most upsetting occurrence was the pervasive sewer smell in the whole restaurant. We will now go elsewhere.

Raw chicken... rough said.

Food was removed from the bill, and wine was good, but nothing makes up for raw chicken.

Great neighbourhood spot on the Bayview strip. Never disappoints.

Was disappointed with the French Toast I had. It was completely different then the last time. Last time it had wonderful cold whipped cream and fresh berries and this time it was a very strange tasting topping and no fresh fruit. Will still go back again but won’t be ordering the French Toast. The first time I had it, it was the best I’d ever had so I was really disappointed. Love this spot though.

A pleasant French bistro with an interesting selection of wines and nice choice of lunch entrees.
