"The salmon, pot pie & beef medallions were delicious!"
"And the chickpea crepes ain't bad either."
"They were busy, granted, but the manager / hostess was very rude/ un-couth."

We are so glad to have Avenue M in North Asheville - we have dinner here regularly and brunch from time to time. The daily specials are always unique and tasty, and I'd also argue this is the best burger in town. Indoor and outdoor seating are both great, and the friendly neighborhood restaurant atmosphere can't be beat.

Our true go-to place. They make dining fun. Hostess and staff always friendly and courteous. Good beer selection. Most important - great food.

Never really made it to a table. They were busy, granted, but the manager / hostess was very rude/ un-couth. The party of two, in front of us were seated immediately. The hostess took our name and disappeared for several minutes (clearing tables outside - thought she had us ready to go), walked by us a few times, and returned finally to tell us it would be a 20 minute wait. There was no one else waiting. There were tables open on the porch and in the back. At the very least, we should have been offered a place to sit and drinks and told it may be a while since they were busy. My wife was ready to throw-back a few. We probably would have spent $20 bucks or so on drinks before we even thought about eating. We aren't regulars, and I guess we didn't look like big spenders. We had been working around the house all day and I threw a hat on as we walked out the door. We spend several hundred a week as a family eating out (never cook anymore) - guess I'll take my cash somewhere else. We had been looking for a good place to eat regularly to replace Jack of Hearts in Weaverville. Last time I was here - loved the food. It will, however, not be this place. I will be sure I tell my friends to avoid this poorly run, snooty establishment. Lived here all my life - seen them come and go. It won't be long... I'll eat a pack of crackers before they ever get a dime of my money again.

The fettuccine a large Luigi was a fabulous special that I hope makes it to the regular menu. Perfectly cooked fettuccine and a light delicious sauce with pieces of chorizo and Italian sausage topped small slices of deep fried onions.

Sunday morning I took my family to Brunch at Avenue M. We sat outside on the dog-friendly patio. My kids (3 and 5 years old) loved their meals and ate every bite. Both my mother and I had the scallops with hollandaise sauce, asparagus eggs, bacon and what they call their home fries, which were awesome. The meal was perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. My husband had the Huevos Rancheros and said it was the best he had ever had. All-in-all, the best brunch around! We will be back. Oh, the service was great too!
