They started out very strong with a rotating menu of interesting dishes that were outside the red sauce joint box. Avalon's owner has another restaurant in West Chester, which is really Downingtown's cooler older sister, so they probably overreached. Sad.

Great dinner. Great service. Decadent dessert. Cheese plates overpriced, but the rest of the evening was top notch.

Dinner was delightful, cozy and delicious. I love a BYOB where they can concentrate on the quality of the food. Everything we ate was "top of the line", not overpriced and more than adequate portion sized. The room is "intimate" but you aren't sitting so...More
