Someone Special Works Here!

Superior Service at avenue” – STL Magazine

Jeanne Louise Ayres @ Avenue.

Due to an ongoing shortage of restaurant labor (in both the front and back of house), attentive and timely service is a fading phenomenon. So on the rare occasions when you encounter not just good but exemplary service, as happens with Jeannie, a longtime server at avenue in Clayton, you wonder why others don’t do as she does:

Avenue’s bar remains open as late as 1:00 am Monday thru Saturday.

“Always great…”

“Always a great experience! One of my favorite go to places for dinner or brunch.”

Outstanding! Our favorite.

Outstanding! Our favorite entree’s were served! Scallops and Halibut! The server recommended a perfect wine! Could not be more pleased with the specials on that evening!

Ever have that one perfect meal..?

Ever have that one perfect meal; when every item served is crafted to perfection. Well, this was it…and not the first time either. Brunch was a hit! Eggs, potatoes, berries, omelette, biscuits, coffee, All at their very best! This place is a neighborhood treasure. In Clayton, across from a huge parking lot. If you’ve never been; what are you… Read more “Ever have that one perfect meal..?”

The First Time!

This was the first time we’ve been to Avenue. We tried it during restaurant week! Great food, fun atmosphere and we ran into 2 other tables of friends! Must be the new go to place in Clayton!

Thank you for a great evening!

I must say that in comparison to other Clayton Restaurant Week promos, Avenue was probably one of the best three: I rated 801 Fish and Il Palato as also tops. You didn’t skimp on any portions. Everything was delicious and the service was superb. I will definitely return. Thank you for a great evening!

Treated like Family!

Misty was great, personable and made out brunch lovely! My parents are regulars and she treated them like family.

Wonderful & Energetic!

Wonderful food and energetic staff!


It was great food, ambience and service

First experience at this restaurant!

First experience at this restaurant. We had a reservation and were seated timely. Restaurant was not very full at 7:00 on a Saturday. Little surprising. I started with a mixed greens salad, which was just that – different types of lettuce with dressing. It was simple but good. My wife and I both ordered the trout, which was excellent and… Read more “First experience at this restaurant!”

It was great!  

It’s always – It was great!   It’s always dependably enjoyable for service, quality, innovation, ambiance, etc.

Great cocktails to start!

Great cocktails to start & wine pairings with dinner, oysters were wonderful. I loved the halibut entree special and everyone else had steak frites and they were very pleased. We will be coming back soon!

Dependable with great options!

Always dependable great options.

This is a hidden gem—always!

This is a hidden gem—always great food, great wine, great service and a wonderful time!

Private party with very good food and good service

There is a little room in the back that is perfect for a large dinner group ( say 20 people). We ate here and I was surprised at how good the food was given that they had so many people to serve at once. All the choices were good-and the acoustics were much better than… Read more “Private party with very good food and good service”

Excellent Food and Service

Only reservation we have is the slow service from the kitchen on a night with few in restaurant but a private party in their event room. Food was flawless and wait staff excellent. Good parking across the street

Private Party-Entire Restaurant-Great Experience

Rehearsal dinner for 75 followed by a welcome reception for more. Everything was great-food, atmosphere, logistics and friendly and attentive service. Bryan, Vicky and Nathan made it easy.

Highly recommended!

I have visited the Avenue several times and have yet to be disappointed. Entree prices range from $17-$30 or so. Most recently, I tried the mussels for an appetizer and the filet of sole for an entree. Both were very delicious, and the bread offered was perfect for soaking up the remaining broth with the… Read more “Highly recommended!”

Incredible food!

Part of a group of 37, with a choice of 3 entrees. I had the steak tips & pasta option. It was absolutely delectable!! The meat was fork tender,wine based, kind of ‘stew like’ flavor, with a couple carrots and mushrooms on it, on a bed of penne. Wonderful french bread to accompany it. Amazing… Read more “Incredible food!”


Our visit to Avenue was the third restaurant in as many evenings. It is an unpretentious space with clean lines and uncluttered seating. Best short ribs! Hands down; nicely presented, tender and flavorful with fresh, crispy green beans and a crunchy-on-the outside, soft-on-the-inside potato cake. Crispy warm bread and a delightfully sweet-tart house-made lemonade rounded… Read more “Nice!”

Tasty abs great atmosphere !

We stopped for a quick bite during the art fair. Pleasantly surprised st how well prepared and delicious everything was. From the smoked salmon starter through the pea ravioli and delicately prepared scallops, we loved it all. The fresh basil, which is grown out front was added to my cocktail . I’ll be returning to… Read more “Tasty abs great atmosphere !”


“Best meal I’ve had in a long time.”
