Upscale hotel's comfortable rooms and modern business facilities appeal to both business and leisure travelers. – In Short
Soon after the first Hyatt hotel opened in Los Angeles in 1957, Hyatt hotels and resorts became known for their dramatic atrium lobbies and their ability to express local flavor. Rooms feature beds with Sealy brand mattresses and down comforters, flat-screen TVs with cable access, wireless Internet, iPod-adaptable alarm clock/radios, Starbucks coffee and Portico bath products. Travelers enjoy the convenience of hotel and airline check-in kiosks, fitness facilities, multiple business centers and ample meeting spaces.
Delicious food, classy ambience – My fiance and I went to Avenue One for Restaurant Week. The restaurant is open in the lobby of the Hyatt hotel but it's still classy. In fact, romantic. There's a nice loungey sitting area right next to it. Our server, Juan was courteous and professional. I got the petite eggplant napoleon for my appetizer. I am not sure how it was supposed to come out but it was cold. The cheese did look like it was sitting out for awhile but it was still delicious. My fiance and I both got the grilled rib eye steak and we both agreed that it was flavorful and just plain yummy. The chocoloate lava cake was a nice small portion so I didn't feel super full. We did however, feel like we were the only ones there who weren't tourists. I would recommend this place.
Avoid Thanksgiving night!!! – We went there for Thanksgiving night. Actual restaurant was closed; the dinner was served in the hallway (which was absolutely horrible!!!) The menu was 5-course dinner and it was ok. But the service was awful. First of all I made reservation 5 days before, they could not find us in the list, I called up twice to confirm, they never asked my phone number! They gave us a nice table, the dinner, waited were ok, but nothing special. For the first drink we had to wait about 20 minutes and all the time they would switch the plates and bring the food it would take about 15-20 minutes. I almost fell asleep. It was not crowded in there and while others were still eating waiters started to clean up the tables around take the chairs and tables outside from the hallway and making such a noise. It?s not worse it to pay this kind of money and have horrible service.
something happened to the fondues! – Just went back last weekend and something has happened to the fondues!
We ordered a blue cheese fondue which was decent enough, but the classic chesse fondue was awful! I don't know what went wrong, but it was almost inedible. I don't know now if I will go back.
Highly Recommended – Ordered the pre-theatre menu, the 2 course meal. Menu a bit limited but did find 2 choices I liked, sirloin steak & chicken dish. The 4 of us ordered the steak & it was outstanding! We had caesar salad, mussels & shrimp appitizers. The mussels were superb and the best i've ever had anywhere! The caesar salad was great as well. The service was impeccable. The wine,dirty & choc martini's were awesome. The meal was great but cocktails pricey.They said allow 2 hrs before the theatre and since we did not order dessert, we were in & out in 1 1/2 hrs and still had plenty of time for a quick cocktail at the theatre before going to our seats.
A most pleasant experience & look fwd to going again the next time I am in Boston, whether it's for the theatre or not. I highly recommend Avenue One.
This is a dining event! – My favorite restaurant in Boston! Avenue One features fantastic food, the best service anywhere and wonderful entertainment!
Mediocre Food at Steep Prices – When you walk into Avenue One and look at the menu you get the feeling that you are about to have a great dinner, but by the time the appetizer arrives you begin to realize that might not be the case. We recently went to Avenue One before going to the theater; although the staff was friendly the food was below average. The Calamari was overdone and the "Crushed Tomato Sauce" it was served with might as well have been ragu. my wife ordered the Tart which came out cold and by the time our dinner arrived we were wondering if we would have time to eat it before the show. However, we didn't need to worry because after a few bites we didn't want any more. The chicken was dry and flavorless and although the sauce for the braised lamb was tasty the lamb itself was overcooked.
Great turn around – I went to this restaurant after it changed from Swissotel to Hyatt and vowed never to return. My friends had been telling me how it has changed and to try it again as we are so close. I got dragged for dinner and regained trust in my friends - what a change, food was awesome, waiter quick to please and everyone appears happy.
Comes up short – This restaurant comes up way short on service. It is a great location to go before seeing a show at the Opera house but we do not recommend it. The waiters were complaining that the hotel doesn't give them a host. Drinks and food were extremely slow in coming and some of the food was cold. The waiter tried his best. But the problem is in the kitchen and the management.
There are too many restaurants in the area to settle for something mediocre. I wouldn't go back.
great pre-theater restaurant – Perfect place to go before the lion king show's, its right around the corner and has great ambience with the adjoining lounge. MY kids enjoyed the jazz that play's every Thursday night and the staff were wonderful, we highly recommend this restaurant.
