starting out great
You could tell it is new--the wait staff was having troubles communicating with each other but the food was as good or better than any we have had in Indy. It was excellent and fresh and new without being so trendy that you felt you were just paying for the being trendy. Local sources and options such as free range chicken.
Great hand-crafted cocktails too

New and exciting
This place has recently opened. The service was normal, nothing outstanding. The calamari was excellent! I would go back just for the calamari alone. The owner was nice and friendly. He took the fries back due to them being cold and replaced them with two side dishes.

Can't wait to take more friends
What a great find! Everyone was so attentive, including the owner. Suggestions made by the wait staff were right on. Can't wait to go again.

Taverna is new on the scene but joins a league of great locally owned establishments. Our visit was the first of many to come. The menu has plenty of fresh iterations and great variety. A welcomed addition to the higher dining experience in Indy's Midtown. Our selection of the tuna tartar and spring roll appetizers were a solid start both fresh and tasty. The Ponzu Ribeye was the standout entree with exceptional flavor, juices and at a perfect medium temperature.

I had high expectations coming here, and they were all exceeded. Service was great. Our waitress was so sweet and very honest when we asked her opinion and questions about the menu. The food was definitely fresh... It is very clear in the flavor and vibrancy of the dishes, that each ingredient is prepared to order and it had not been frozen. Each piece of the meal complimented each other well. We were too full for dessert, but I'm coming back for that brulee trio. Yum!
We will definitely be returning to try other menu items and chef specials. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

Great dining experience!
My friends and I were excited about trying out this new place in Broadripple and were not disappointed. We were greeted with friendly smiles upon arrival and had awesome service from Jeremy and Cooley who offered us great wine and food suggestions, as well as fun entertainment for our group of 5. Food was amazing! Definetly will return.

Keep This Place Open
It's in the old Khoury's spot. Don't know if people really know about the new restaurant but it was shockingly good. I had the kona steak and my wife had the tuna. Both delicious. My sweet potato "wedges" were great (like a mashed sweet potato inside of a fried sweet potato). Carpacicio was very good (not overly acidic like some). The drink menu was very good as well. Great ambience (I gave it a four instead of five because while everything looked great, some of the materials used were not top notch - a technical issue for me). This place is a great addition to the neighborhood. Eat here, keep it open!
