So we stayed at the Bungalow hotel in Long Branch where they have an affiliation to this club for pool and beach services. Having only the weekend to spend in long branch, I was very disappointed to find out the the pool closed for an event at 2:00, giving us only a few hours to enjoy the pool. Though there was not much to enjoy, 1) the pool is 3 feet deep, 2) there was a number of small kids that were playing ball in the pool 3) we had ordered breakfast, and my blueberry pancakes didnt come with blueberries, upon complaining they did deliver the blueberries, but ended up charging us for them! 4) No maple syrup was served with the pancakes and I had to wait till they got cold before they actually brought the maple syrup down.

There was a lack of servers by the pool area. The pool had a lot of sand in it which indicates they dont clean very well. This place has the potential to be so much more and was advertised to be as such, but it just didnt get that vibe going.

not the most amazing menu or food i have had in a French restaurant. In fact it was very average. We had a great waiter but that was it for 'great' at Avenue. There was nothing wrong with the food, it was good but again nothing special, especially for the value. I would not eat there again, and there are not many French restaurants i would say that about. My wife liked it, but didn't love it, and i just felt the menu was limited.

And perhaps I am a bit influenced by the fact that we also used their Le Club private beach where the drinks were $28 for a double shot of vodka. Unfortunately i don't ask how much do your drinks cost while i am at the beach at a place where i am staying, and when we got hit for a $168 tab for our 3 drinks each, that sobered me right up, and that was it for us, and Avenue Le Club.

There are enough places to eat in Long Branch that offer more value, and more choices. And for a French restaurant, there are so many in NYC and the surrounding area that are way better.

The waiter had no manner, didn't want to be bothered and was rude. The manager took ten minutes to come to the table and instead of apologizing he proceeded on excusing the waiter's behavior. His demeanor was he didn't care. All previous reviews on how the staff is rude, young kids with attitudes is true. I would never go back and certainly not recommend this place.

Went there for lunch twice. Once on a nice day with a beautiful view. Once on a rainy day. The food is More than adequate. Staff is attractive and helpful. But they are not very flexible. They can delete anything but if you ask them to add anything they can't. One person asked to add tomato. They wouldn't do it. Another asked to delete the fresh tuna and serve more tuna confit they wouldn't do it. In fact you can only order the tuna rare or well done. I asked for it to be pink and they said they couldn't do it. And the restaurant wasn't even busy. At the end of the day they should really try to fill some reasonable requests of the customers.

Went for dinner with another couple. The girls ordered a bottle of wine and the guys ordered drinks. During the entire night we were never asked if we wanted more. My glass sat there in plane view. Service sucked. It's bad when you order a dish for two and after ten minutes without anyone coming by, you have to get up and get your plates. Not enough for for the money. This is freakin Long Branch, NJ not NY. They are more concerned with image and the disco than the restaurant patrons.
