Very nice atmosphere, but lousy location as it's located adjacent to a shabby motel/apartment complex (?). Appetizer (shrimp, calamari and skate) was great, as was the entree ( butternut squash gnocchi). The Caesar salad was not so great...way too much lemon and no hint of olive oil or garlic.

I travel often for work and wanted to find something unique after a long day. I came across reviews for AV and decided to try it. I called ahead first to make sure there was a bar with seating (as a single business traveler, that's ideal for me). The lady who answered the phone was very friendly and helpful. Now,... More

From the location, it can be a put-off...GO IN! One of the best meals we have had this year. As this was our first visit and the Mgr. stopped by our table we let him pick the food and wine..made great choices! We are from the west coast, so may not get back but it is a hidden jewel.

We took a two month road trip from Reno,NV to Boston, MA and back. We always check TripAdvisor before heading out for a meal and usually pick the top rated or close to top for our meal. AV was hands down the BEST food and service we experienced on the whole trip. Pork Braciole and Kale salad were superb Location... More

For our up coming Anniversary my husband and I wanted to try something new, we had heard about this new restaurant that opened up during the summer so we decided to give it a try. When we parked we werent sure we had the right place because it looked part of a pretty seedy looking motel but thought we are... More

A Diamond in the Rough Driving up to AV is an experience. AV is located in a Rodeway Inn who's exterior has seen better days. Once inside, one find yourself in a very elegant restaurant that you would expect to find in a fine, upscale luxury hotel. We ordered wine and I was pleasantly surprised that after checking the wine... More

We went out to celebrate a birthday on a Thursday, Had heard many good things about this restaurant. The place was relatively empty. We were greeting quickly by our server who took our drink orders. Since we hadn't seen on another in a while, we chatted to catch up. After some time, we ordered. They had a special "corn fritter"... More

By looking at the outside, you would never think that this little gem awaits you inside. We were greeted warmly , received excellent service and outstanding cocktails. The Bibb salad was truly delicious. I had the salmon entree. Waitstaff were so flexible in modifying sides to suit your requests. Everything was delicious from start to the coffee ending. Portions were... More

I have been to AV twice now and have never been disappointed. To me it is the best restaurant in the Scranton area with unique upscale food. The pre-6p menu includes a 3 course meal for 20 dollars. Make sure they people you are with order different meals so that you can try everything.
