Reliable, dependable, and solid. Just a great restaurant run by great folks who go out of their way to accommodate. We usually try to eat outside if the weather cooperates, as the scenery is "entertaining". We love the wine list and owner Scott's amazing memory...More

The Pub offers a varied menu, with choices for most palates and portion sizes. Many plates come in two sizes; food allergies accommodated; nice cocktail choices and very good wine list. Service is very attentive but not hovering. Casual, but refined, it is becoming one...More

I have dined at Park Ave Pub many times. The host/owner is always present. The establishment has a very well managed vibe. The food is always delicious and the service is prompt. Cozy, dim lit atmosphere inside. White tablecloth sidewalk dining during the warmer months...More
