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.

Recently went here for the winter menu. Arrived on time for 8pm reservation. Still waited 15 minutes while host chatted with coat check girl. When seated, we were offered menus and water promptly. But getting attention to order seemed harder. I had venison tartare, john dory, and flourless chocolate cake. He had scallop sandwich, veal chop, and chocolate cube. Total w/o drinks $200 (includes tax & tip). The apps were the best part of the meal. My venison was prepared tableside. Impressive and I like special service. But while being prepared, the hostess comes over to seat the table next to us. But she only achieves this by bumping into my server several times even after he says to wait. There was so little space for the next patrons to get into the table. It was awkward for everyone but the hostess. Next, the entrees were just okay. The john dory was cooked well with the black truffle sauce. I didn't really care for the brioche crusted egg. His veal chop was cooked to medium (chef's recommendation). It would've been better as medium rare. It's recommended that way at all the other restaurants we've been to. He really like the mushrooms though. But the veal should have been the star. Finally, dessert was forgettable. I didn't think either desserts were decadent enough. And the portions were too big. I ordered a coffee too. But it didn't arrive until halfway through dessert. Service was also forgettable. Cutlery was placed sloppily. Chairs weren't pulled out for seating. Bread basket and butter and weirdly placed where one patron could reach but the other couldn't. It was a two-top table. All in all, it wasn't particularly bad or good. Just okay. But for the price, not worth it.

Went there for lunch during restaurant week with a couple of my friends. the ravioli and salmon tartare appetizer were delicious as were our entrees (filet minion sandwhich and calamari salad). Our desserts were great too! overrall a little pricey but very good and a fantastic decor.
