Love having this restaurant
Love having this restaurant in the neighborhood. Food is very good and the service was truly outstanding. When it catches on, it will be tough to get a table. Two draw backs: the noise level was uncomfortably high both times we visited and it is hard to have a conversation without shouting. The second is the 4-top tables are too small. We are not big people and still felt as though we didn't have enough table for 4 diners.

Had a very enjoyable dinner
Had a very enjoyable dinner with my husband and 2 kids. While the kids had burgers (which were good) I ordered the meatloaf, which was outstanding. It came with sauteed mushrooms, spinach and a delicious gravy. My husband had the filet mignon which was perfectly cooked.
Service was outstanding! We will defnitely return.

The food was good...The appetizer
The food was good...The appetizer of rice balls was okay, not a fan of fried foods but tried it anyway. My husband had the veal chop special which he said was pretty good. I had a salmon special which was also pretty good. The Crème Brulee was delish. I had their dragonfruit Mojito special, not good. Next time I'll stick the classic.

Our server, Shawn, was great.
Our server, Shawn, was great. Good beer and cocktail selection. More vegetarian options than most local restaurants. There was a long wait but since we had a reservation were sat right away even though we were a little late.

Overall, the Savoy Tavern
Overall, the Savoy Tavern was a very good experience for my friends and I. The food is delicious, they have a very interesting menu, a good wine list and our waiter was excellent. The only complaint was the noise level. It was a Saturday night and every table was full the entire time we were there, which is very nice for the owners/management, but it was quite difficult to carry on a conversation. I will definitely go back, but not on a Saturday night.

Very attentive greeting by
Very attentive greeting by waitstaff when we first go there. Drinks and appetizer came quickly but the wait for our main course was extremely long (1 hr). The waiter apologized a couple of times and when we finally asked what is taking so long he said there was a problem with the computer. He then said our drinks were on the house and offered us free desserts. This was very nice and a great way to take care of the long delay.

Lovely Dining Experience
Overall we had a very nice evening at the Savoy Tavern on Saturday. Not a huge menu but the selections offered, as well as the specials, were wonderful. Very nice atmosphere and outstanding service. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and plan to go back again.

Good food & good service
This venue has changed names and owners a few times in the past couple of years and looks like it will make it this time. Food and service were good and certainly would return for another meal. We visited on a Saturday night and decided to have a drink at the bar after the meal since it was still relatively early. There were quite a few people at the bar (10:30 pm, Saturday night) yet they decided it was time to close and the bartenders began to clean and close down the bar (which happens to be pretty nice). Needless to say everyone who was there and very willing to stay longer and order more drinks left. The name is savoy tavern, and would expect a tavern to stay open a bit later, especially on the weekends.

Had never been to The Savoy Tavern, but wanted to try something new. I made reservations for Mother's Day - turned out to be a great find! They had a 4 course price fix, the food was great and the service was excellent. Will be returning!

Good Food - Loud Live Music
This local neigborhood restaurant has excllent food. The menu does not overwhelm you with pages and pages of choices- ht ey keep it short and simple.
As for the range of their menu, you can get a burger or a filet mignon.
I highly recommend their Wedge Salad - 1/3 of an Iceberg lettuce, covered with chopped tomatoes, and fried onionh strings.
Warning - if you don't like loud music while you are dining, go before 7:00 PM.

Caesar salad and baked clams were swooped up by our group. The bread, oil and seasoned butter were all terrific. I had a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, the rest of my party soft drinks. All reasonably priced. The potato encrusted salmon was perfect and both diners who chose that enjoyed it. It was over a bed of sauteed spinach.
The mussels fra diavolo were very tasty although too many were not opened. The garlic toast was great for dipping in the bottom of the kettle.
The lava cake was acceptable, a bit too much like soft fudge.

I enjoyed eating outside.
I enjoyed eating outside. I prefer eating outside better as inside, as noise volume is quieter outside. Overall, I was very happy with our dinning experience. I would goback!

Loud but very cute!
Food and service were good. There is a vibrant bar scene but the loudness carries over to the dining space. Not some place I would recommend for a romantic dinner or a first date because its too loud. The beer mussels are good and I recommend the dragon berry mojito.

Good food, ample portions. Great ambiance. Appetizers were great, especially the artichokes and meatballs. Desserts were delish as well. Very enjoyable night!

Finally a Manhattan-quality restaurant on the Island! Food was great. Atmosphere pleasant with open
windows and even a nice view - rare on LI - because of trees in front of restaurant and across the street.
My husband and I - very picky - tried four different things and all were excellent. Please patronize the place, so it can
survive and not disappear as so many other good restaurants on the Island do.

An In Place
Excellent food and service, and decor is quite good. Crowded so make sure you get a reservation. Large bar that is nicely separated from the dining area. Everyone thought their meal was excellent, and planned to return.
