We have been going to Avenue for her past 5 years and would always get a good meal there however on Thursday night we both were served raw fish in a bowl of water. Totally shocking that that even the waitress didn't even notice there...was something wrong with it. I wouldn't normally leave a review even after this horrendous experience and would put it done to the restaurant having a bad night however I dont think that was the caseMore

The takeaway service was very good. The food is finished and packed after the customer arrives so that time in containers is minimised. It’s a more expensive takeaway but nice as a treat every so often! Their burgers are the best burgers in Maynooth.

Booked table on website and requested "Warm and Cozy" when we arrived we were offered 3 different options for warm and cozy - brilliant! The lady who met us even brought us to see them - wonderful service, I am so sorry I did not...get her name. We saw the Chicken Wings that others have mentioned and they looked fantastic however we all had something from the burger menu which looked so good. Fries/chips were excellent!!! The chilli burger did not have jalapeños as described and my Cashel Blue cheese burger did not come with a toasted bun however they were both very good. The buttermilk chicken burger was also very good. The house rosé was very good, the water on the table was excellent. The profiteroles were delicious. Coffee also very good. Service was excellent, everyone was so friendly. Atmosphere was lovely and relaxing. Will definitely be back. I will have the Chicken Wings next time. We were all very happy and can highly recommend the Avenue.More

Outstanding on all fronts. Food, service, choice & the best cocktails EVER! We had the frozen daiquiris, OMG. Also the T-Bone steak was to die for. Can't wait to go back, would highly recommend. Booking required

With Dublin gone into lockdown last weekend, I had to find a last minute alternative venue for my sister’s hen! From the get go, Robert and the team were superb. From the initial enquiry right through to us leaving the restaurant, there was nothing we...could fault.... Plenty of variety on the food and wine menu, attentive staff and a buzzing atmosphere. Covid 19 safety procedures followed by the team, so everyone in our party felt comfortable and relaxed while being out for our meal. Thank you team Avenue for turning a stressful situation into such a special evening. ☺️More

As always, the food here is really good. They have everything working well during these Covid times but still ensure everyone is enjoying a meal out. Our first time out for such a long time and I felt so safe. Thanks to everyone who made...our date night memorable. Have already booked again for 2 weeks time. S&SMore

Hi, I think it would be best to contact them directly for the menu options. As for the seven buggies, I would see it quite difficult to fit them all in... unless they are very compact (like stollers)...
