We had a Living Social deal for Avalon. We were very disappointed in the food choices. They may be great for someone else, but we felt it was very limited and overpriced. We don't be going back.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Richmond. The food is excellent. The bar is fun and not over crowded. The prices can be on the high side, but you can't beat the food.

Kind of an American "tapas" menu. Plus, some itemsare offered with choice of portion size, Great if you like to mix and match different flavors. PLUS..good drink portions...partial to Beefeaters..straight-up..olives. And will always try the Vinho Verde if on the menu. It was very good.

Fun "local" place. It is sophisticated dining. They feature small tapas portions for the misses and full size meal for me. They always have several specials that are very creative. This is a chef’s place where fresh seasoning is normal. (Sometimes we do have to caution him to use less salt.) The smoking problem has been corrected when new laws took effect in Virginia. My wife and I use it as a go to place with friends, where the food is always fresh and creative.

Over priced for the portion and quality of food. Poor service. I asked for salt and pepper, for the price of the food it should have been perfectly seasoned. I was brought two salt shakers. No attention to details. They have awards that they have won in the pass, what happen? This must be a cheap treat. With all of the restaurants in the Richmond area I can't believe they going to be open much longer. They don't have a "Happy Hour". Who ever heard of a bar and grill that didn't have a "happy hour". This has to be the poorest excuse for a restaurant. Avalon, save yourselves close now and start over.
