My husband insisted we spread our wings from downtown and head to this trendy spot. The decor is very cool. The tables are a little to close together. Was not to crazy about the snooty upper-east siders. Also, kind of loud. The service was attentive, very comfortable and perfectly paced. My husbands veal chop was perfect. My clams casino delicious. My lamb shank was very fatty- tasted good going down but not so good after. I really wanted the Dover Sole but at $48 I couldn't do it. Not sure I would make the trek again but my husband might bring clients there.

Had dinner this evening at Park Avenue Autumn and this is my first review...... it was disappointing. As interesting as the interior design is, the food is ordinary to bad at best. Had the pork chop shnitzel which was totally greasy. The side of broccoli with chitos was floating in butter and the french fires were not crisp or flavorful. Went with four friends to celebrate a birthday. Would not recommend this restaurant at this time. They need to work on the food.

Had dinner last night at Park Avenue Autumn--very good. Decor is lovely. Service is good. Food ranges from very good to excellent. Favorites: gnocchi, potato latkes, scallops, swordfish, carrot cake with brie. No sign of the recession at Park Avenue Autumn--restaurant was full by 8 p.m.

For the past few years, my roommates and I have always planned a restaurant week date. We went here to check out the restaurant that changes with the seasons...and it was well worth it. First, unlike some restaurants that participate, the dishes they offered were straight from the menu, so you were getting what they really offer, not some cheap version. I had the salmon tartare to start, which was amazing- big chunks of salmon. The roast chicken was great (my roommate had the salmon and loved it). But dessert may have been my favorite course- the banana pudding was mouth-watering and the perfect cap to the dinner. The service was great (I actually left a bag in the restaurant and the waiter chased me down the street to return it!) and the decor was very fitting of park avenue "summer." My only complaint, and a small one, was that it was on the cold side in the restaurant. I should have brought a sweater. But this place is definitely worth checking out- especially if you can get in for restaurant week. We're planning on checking out the other seasons, as well!

Went tonight for restaurant week; menu was delicious, service was great and very attentive. All of the food was well seasoned and tasted fresh and was very seasonal. Great concept.

We went to Park Avenue Summer for Restaurant Week. The menu had a great variety of things to choose from and the food tasted fresh and well-seasoned. The staff was very attentive and not too pushy. The decor was great.

Park Avenue Summer - an oasis, a delight! Decor is fresh and serene. Menu was so enticing it was hard to decide what to order. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal totally! The server was appropriately interested, but not annoying. Never had to wait for anything, and it was a Saturday night. We all agreed we can't wait to come again before the season ends AND try "Autumn"! By the way - the dessert trio was 'amazing'!
