    One of the best must go to Asheville restaurants! Extensive wine list. Owner is a sommelier. The chief and crew are culinary artists!

    Superb service from a 1st time waiter. We were initially taken aback by the seemingly limited menu , most of which were GF , but our food choices were mediocre in taste. The ribs were really good, and sweet potato fries were excellent. The egg yolk dip for asparagus was questionable.

    These gentlemen have now been in business for 14 years. In the restaurant business that is termed a success, because 80% of restaurants fail within 5 years. Give them a try, tasty food, great cocktails, high standard wine list, and excellent service.

    I really want to like Avenue M. The ambience is nicely upscale for Asheville in general and North AVL in particular. Service was friendly and allowed for a relaxing dinner with friends. But my tofu noodle dish was fairly tasteless and the catfish was okay at best. Wine is a bit pricey, too. I’ll probably be back, but will try something else.

    Good service. Would sit in main room or at bar next time, too quiet in the back. Great artichoke dip & shrimp roll !

    So great to have a restaurant nearby that offers consistently good food, great service and fair prices. Part of me hopes it doesn't get discovered and become innaccessible :-)
