The Therien family started in the FL restaurant business in 1971. John Therien started The Banana Boat in September 1971, on Commercial Blvd east of U.S.1. John Therien and his sons, Luke and Giles, moved to Boynton Beach in 1978 and relocated The Banana Boat to Boynton Beach, on Ocean Avenue and the Intracoastal Waterway. In 1989 John Therien and his sons started the Fifth Avenue Grill steakhouse. This fine dining steakhouse was the first in the area to offer prime steaks in a classic Chicago style fine dining atmosphere. Since then many steakhouses have opened up in the area, but as the locals know, Fifth Avenue Grill was the first, and still the best to offer Great Steaks at a fair price.
Hostess lost our reservation, gave us the worst table in the restaurant. One diner had to send her food back because it was undercooked. It was still undercooked when it was returned. The food is overpriced for the quality. It was a bad experience. We won t be back
Decided to forego seafood and ordered coconut chicken with drizzling of jasmine rice! About $18. Entree seemed to be four chicken strips fried in shredded coconut. Drizzling of rice was just that! Really had to inspect dish closely to find rice.
Short wait after arrival at the bar was not enjoyable. Our party seemed to greatly impose upon blonde bartender.
Overpriced food. Very poor house merlot. (Vendage)
Won t return. Just another overblown restaurant along the waterfront in Boynton Beach.
One star--and that goes to our server. Jennifer. Bartender Denise s performance was abysmal. After initial service there wasn t any followup by her to any of our needs. She was proficient though at chatting with customers across the bar while her partner was doing an efficient job.
Food was acceptable . But not a value . Overpriced.
As for the great view the restaurant is built overlooking the ICW where it is just a dirty water canal barely 150 yards wide.
Would not suggest to friends nor return.
We ordered the 3 Pound Lobsters for $42.00 each mine had Lump Crab Meat Stuffing. The normal price in the area is $69.00 for a 3 Pound Lobster. When the Lobster arrived we both started off with the Claws. The Claws were tender. But when we went to eat the tail meat it was tough. My Lobster also had a very strange taste. I woke up about 4:00 AM in the morning with bad Abdominal Cramps and Diarrhea.
I had nothing to eat all day and since this was my first meal of the day I knew this was the cause of my illness. The Restaurant did NOT offer to help me with this matter even when I told them I would contact the Department of Hotels and Restaurants and file a complaint which I just did. .
A lot of older people go to this Restaurant and if they had what I had they could have had to go to the Hospital. The Manager was very nasty and refused to work even a penny of good will out to try and make this horrible experience up. An honest Restaurant would have worked something out. Stay away from this Restaurant they do not care about their customers well being.
UPDATE: The State of Florida Department of Business And Professional Regulation Division of Hotels and Restaurants Food service Inspection Report just came in. It verified this is a bad Restaurant that caused my illness.

Again stay away from this Nasty Restaurant unless you want to have a high risk of getting sick.
Been there several times ........over the years: This was the worse I ever had there........the service is great and Waitress went out of her way........but the food was terrible..............
I had the Mai and it was bad... The sauce over powered it with a bad salsa taste.....couldn't enjoy the fish.......
My friend had the Frog legs and they were not crispy but cooked to death
My other friend had Snapper and it again had a sauce that over powered the fish..........The veggies were good and Mash Potatoes were good....The dessert was really great it was apple crumb pie with walnuts and a cinnamon sauce and was really the thing that made it okay..... needed to get the terrible taste of the Fish out of my mouth...........my only concern was that Waitress knew our feelings and didnt do anything about it... I have had dishes in the past there that was out of this world......So feel Bad as I am the one that recommended it......I will NEVER DO THAT AGAIN.......THE WORSE I HAVE BEEN IN FOR A LONG TIME......NEVER AGAIN.....Louis La Hue
went back on the 2/15/2009 and the food was great noticed that they went back to the original menu of sorts. My Scottish Salmon was great and couldn't complain. The waiter was great and had a great time there......
Went New Years Eve...No music - no hats - no nothing and BAD, BAD FOOD...Cold, not what it was supposed to be...Salads all terrible. Slivers of anchovies on caesar salad. no apples on special salads.
All this coupled with awful service by a waitress with an attitude makes this a restaurant 6 people will never visit again.
