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'!

One of my girlfriends and I went to Park Avenu Spring for brunch this saturday, and the meal was so great, we had to make it in for dinner before the seasons changed. First off, the brunch was exceptional- I'm in love with the 'Upper East Sider' ( a cool take on eggs benedict) , and the pastry plate they send out beforehand is a nice touch. My husband and I went for dinner on sunday, and the meal and service were just as good. We're both crab lovers, so we got the peekytoe crabcakes and the softshell crab appitizers. Both were light and fresh, and a perfect start for our meal. I had the miso glazed lobster, and he had lamb chops- again, both cooked perfectly. We also had the crispy artichokes as a side, they were good, but kind of on the cold side when they arrived. Service was very good, (I don't like my server to be breathing down my neck the entire meal) and the recommdations he made were all spot on. I'm kind of upset they're changing seasons so soon, I was blown away by how nice the 'spring' room was, but will definately try yo make the time to make it back for the 'summer' incarnation...

Beautiful, comfortable setting. Adequate service; unexceptional food given the fare. Left satisfied but not delighted.
