  • "We had a fine brunch outdoors, and ordered off the lunch menu, though the brunch was also available. The burgers were perfect and accompanied by excellent fries."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "This restaurant has it all, and this one brunch was not quite up to standard, but there was a big party for a bridal shower to be served at the same time, which could explain that."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Salads were large enough to share. Had spinach with fried oysters. The salad was great the oysters need to be crisp and however. The fish special was great and also the scallops and flounder and shrimp entree's. The only dish now really great was the gnocchi with lobster was dry and very sweet . Over all it's a nice place with good food."

  • "La tavola was recommended to me by a friend. We live 35min away & we definitely go back. Salads, appetizers, meals & desserts were great. We asked waitress for recommendations & she gave us a lot of suggestions. Beet salad was the best. Everyone all had different dishes & all were delicious. Chocolate mousse cake was big enough for 2 - it really was only choc mousse not cake which was why it was so good!!"

  • "Went for brunch with my husband and checked in with the hostess but somehow I got a no-show email. My husband opted for the unlimited screwdrivers but had to order then as soon as he got the one because they took so long. Food was great but you had to wait for it. Server was nice but I guess sitting outside we waited for some lovin'! Would still definitely go back."

  • "Went to La Tavola to try something new. First let me say the veal meatballs appetizer was really great and the sauce they came in was delicious. Unfortunately, my meal was not so tasty. I tried the chicken parm with linguini. The linguini was perfectly cooked, and the sauce was a nice sweet mariara. The chicken, however, was not good. It was too thick for my liking (an inch or so thick), was very dense, and dry. I like my chicken parm chicken to be somewhat thin, tender, and nicely breaded. This was none of that. The seating inside and out was very nice, and the menu offerings all looked good. I will go back once more and have an open mind. I like to give second chances, and hope that this was just an off night. "

  • "Very pleasant restaurant. Variety of food choices. Wanted to get there early to have a drink at the bar but our table was ready when we arrived. Watching people go into the bar, it looked like a young crowd...bar area was noisy but it's well separated from the dining rooms."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "This restaurant never disappoints. The food is always good and their is a wide variety to choose from."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Great selection of brunch and lunch and unlimited mimosas! Service was good, not much that stood out great or bad. What did stand out was this huge sign that said to text for 10% off today and when I did! I never received the promotion. Even days later still nothing."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Three of four entrees were delivered at the same time.....the filet mignon arrived 10 minutes later & was raw on the inside...not medium. The staff seemed to be scurrying around, so much so that the manager delivered the re-cooked steak (not a new one but the cut-into-steak that had been put back on the grill) himself with apologies. Mistakes happen, but this should not have happened. The food was good, atmosphere nice. It's a shame that an incident like that spoiled the evening."

  • "Great afternoon, with friends, large party another room, service friendly but slow. Food took a long time to come out, restaurant was not filled to capacity. Brunch menu is great and would go back..."

  • "If you don't want to eat in a rubber stamp restaurant with scripted dialogue from the servers then choose LaTavola. The service staff are informed from a personal perspective from the drinks to the desserts. The service was timely and not rushed. The specialty drink menu was long enough to give you a good selection and included a variety of choices outside of the usual margarita options. The baked clams were whole, flavorful and wonderfully seasoned with just the right amount of breadcrumbs and garlic. the sauce was a little lemony but still worth dunking your bread in. the buratta cheese and artichokes were perfectly blended and the calamari was tender. the main course of parmesan pork was a little well done but flavorful. the risotto"
