It doesn’t matter if we dine there every month or once a year, the food and service are always excellent! The $30 three course meal is a terrific deal. Wonderful choices, paced perfectly and enjoyed thoroughly. We always know we have nothing to worry about...More

The service was excellent but the meal was disappointing. I had the salmon which was very good but the sides of nondescript brown rice and slightly mushy vegetables were barely lukewarm. My husband had the coconut shrimp which was slightly overdone. We enjoyed our appetizers...More

Quaint, but a bit cramped on a weekend eve. Food was decent. Service was friendly, but with a few mis-steps that made for a slightly annoying experience.

Reliable, dependable, and solid. Just a great restaurant run by great folks who go out of their way to accommodate. We usually try to eat outside if the weather cooperates, as the scenery is "entertaining". We love the wine list and owner Scott's amazing memory...More

Saturday evening dinner, based on daughter recommendation who lives in area. Dining room was quite empty at 6 but without reservations we were told we could pick an empty table outside. We were fine with that. What was puzzling was the shock on the waiters...More

Dark, quiet, perfect for conversation over excellent food. Large portions, attentive wait staff. While I did not try it because of time pressures, they have a $30 Three-course meal that appears to offer something for everyone. The "Pub" is a misnomer because, while they do...More

The Pub offers a varied menu, with choices for most palates and portion sizes. Many plates come in two sizes; food allergies accommodated; nice cocktail choices and very good wine list. Service is very attentive but not hovering. Casual, but refined, it is becoming one...More

I have dined at Park Ave Pub many times. The host/owner is always present. The establishment has a very well managed vibe. The food is always delicious and the service is prompt. Cozy, dim lit atmosphere inside. White tablecloth sidewalk dining during the warmer months...More
