My second time at this restaurant.
My second time at this restaurant. The food was very good both visits and the staff was friendly though could use some additional training. For example - we had to ask for bread, it was not offered, one diner requested no cheese but the meal came with cheese. Corrections were made promptly and in a courteous manner. I will definitely be back.

This was our first time at
This was our first time at Tavern. It was delicious! I had the bronzoni fish that was out of this world and a friend had the risotto that was equally great. I will definetly go back and try other dishes. The only draw back were the servers. We had to ask a few times for more water, bread etc, but that would not stop us from going back again!!!

Great Food, Nice Location!
This is my third time & I honestly can say the food is consistantly great!
We were with a group of six this past Friday night & all of our dinners were very good with a beautiful presentation! It's nice to see a hopping restaurant & bar crowd on a Friday night. We will definitely be back with more friends!

There were three people in our party. Two out of three commented that they did not enjoy their meals. I thought mine was great so I would give them another chance. The service was fast, efficient and friendly.

Great Rustic Charm
I enjoyed a wonderful meal here with my family. Our group consisted of a burger lover, a seafood lover, and two wine-lovers. Everyone was happy! Our server was fantastic!

We dined on a Saturday night
We dined on a Saturday night and the place was very busy when we arrived. It took quite a while to get our order, but the waitress apologized repeatedly and comped us a second glass of wine for the wait. The food was very good and my wife's dessert was to die for. We will return and try other items on the menu

Check the website first
It is exactly as described in their website: elegant food with an extensive wine list in a pleasant atmosphere. A visit is a dining experience, take your time reading the extensive, detailed menu. There is lots of untried menu items, try them. I had a fried mozzarella, but it was much more, and delicious. This restaurant is an opportunity to try octopus, for example, or rabbit, and it will be good. You may also enjoy more everyday items ( I had Halibut, and it was great). The staff was friendly and knowledgable.
I will be back soon.

Our overall experience was wonderful! We sat at the bar for a drink first and were served promptly by a very friendly bartender. Our table was ready and waiting when we were. Dinner was served promptly-hot! Service was great!

Love having the Tavern here. It has always been a great place to go with very good food. It's nice to have a place in my own town so I don't have to travel far. Because of the prices which are appropriate we save it for something special or a nice night out. Have already given gift certificates out for here and told many people about it. Have plans to go there with friends when I return from vacation.

Nice addition for Seymour
My only two complaints - evidently the brick oven - which is part of the bar in the center of the restaurant - throws off way too much heat, it was quite uncomfortable in there. The menu is pretty limited, but apparently it's a new chef, and the new menu isn't quite ramped up yet.

Contrary to the reviews I read online (mostly negative) - my family and I had delicious, well-prepared meals in a great looking establishment - we will be back again!

The food was very good and the staff great. We received a tour of the wine cellar, which can he reserved for special occasions. Great ambiance

Tavern 1757 is the best restaurant in the Valley! Chef Ryan is bringing the menu to a new level; the rabbit hindquarters and the trout entrees are excellent. We've yet to be disappointed in the quality of the food since Tavern 1757 has opened.

Good food, difficult wine list
Four of us had dinner here. My husband and I shared a small plate of the fried chicken which was excellent. Next time I would have that with a salad as my dinner. Between the four of us we had veal chops, pork saltimboca, and chicken stuffed with fontina cheese and panettone. Everyone enjoyed the meal. The bread served ahead of time was blah and the eggplant and garlic spread lacked something. We asked for butter and that appeared to be difficult. The wine lst was in no particular rider and we found it difficult to order from. The consensus between the 4 of s is that we would all come back. The waitress was friendly and helpful.

we had a wonderful evening.
we had a wonderful evening. We had a cocktail at the bar first. the bartender took great care of us. I had a raspberry martini, delicious! The service from out waiter , Armando was terrific. he was very attentive.
We loved the tasting bite that chef Brian sent to us while we were perusing the menu. Loved the stuffed figs, broccoli rabe pasta dish and the bbq tile fish.
We wished there were some different choices for desert, kinda of limited and nothing appealed to us. otherwise a lovely evening.

The food was exceptionally good, artistic presentation and with a great waiter, Armando, who could ask for more? The Maitre D' (Peter) was very friendly and accomodating too. Will definitely make this one of our favorite places to frequent.

Great new find
Had my doubts about 1757, thinking it might be very bar like, only bad pub food, but figured to try it out. We were very wrong!
Very nice place inside, and the staff was very good. We were greeted nicely, taken to a table. The table rocked a bit, so we were quickly given a new table! The servers were good- very professional and knew the food well.
I had the oysters, and the pizza. Both were really good. Prices decent as well.
My wife had pear and arugula salad, and the hanger steak. The salad was just okay, steak was bland. Not bad - but nothing flavorful. Blah she said., and pricey for what she got.
Overall we plan on going back as it is a nice place to go and grab dinner in the area.

Tavern 1757 has grown and improved since first opening after Ann Brunell helped it out.

Our dining experience
The service from our server Michelle was outstanding. She was attentive, very friendly and was able to answer all our questions about the menu. She made our dining experience very enjoyable. Most of the menu items we ordered were very good except the veal chop. The veal chop was under cooked so the chef replaced the entree, however, the veal chop was very tough, so we will not order that entree again.

Wednesday nite at the Tavern 1757
I have been to this place several times. There were nice specials such as 2 different types of Oysters with different sauces. Excellent, although The waiter could have been a little more versed at to which ones were which.. I have gotten the octopus salad, always consistent. a must try. Love the Stuffed figs..
The veal chop is out of this world, homemade gnocchi just knocks it out of the park!
We had picked a wine they were out of, they immediately came with another comparable, excellent choice, charged for the one i picked, nice touch
Desserts so, so they can use a little help in that department
I highly recommend one of the wine dinners...I loved the last one and have a reservation for the next
Cudos Chef Brian Welcome to CT

We saw this restaurant on the Food Network and wanted to try it. We were not disappointed. Food was excellent and the service was tremendous. On negative was that they ran out of rabbit and octopus. would highly recommend.

Happy to be here.
Can I just say wow!!! Pleasant atmosphere, very warm with lots of wood just like a tavern should be. The service was wonderful as our waiter was attentive without hovering. There is a good menu with a couple of dinning options. The food was most delightful as the presentation was as terrific as the taste. I recommend the stuffed figs, what a treat.

Food was very good and waitress
Food was very good and waitress very nice. My only complaint is the very long wait for our food.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I didn't expect anything special when I made the reservation at 1757, but I couldn't have been more mistaken. From the welcoming torches out front, to the innovative menu and the attentive personable service, we had a wonderful experience. We will surely share it with others and plan to return.

This was our second visit
This was our second visit to Tavern 1757 with some close friends. We all had excellent meals which were well prepared and very tasty! We'll definitely be back again, and don't hesitate to recommend this great find to others.

Restaurant looks great outside when you arrive. Go inside, still impressive. Food was good but portions were small. Good service. Nice atmosphere. Went during the week so the noise level was low. The bar is very close to the dining area so I'm not sure how it would be during a busy weekend when the bar is packed. I'd recommend you give it a try.

Game and fresh ingredients
Tavern 1757 was very good. Service was very good. The bread basket was mediocre but the appetizers were very good. The stuffed figs with prosciutto and gorgonzola were very good - perhaps a little over cooked. The pear and arugula salad would have been better with a little less arugula and a little more gorgonzola. We both had the rabbit, which is the reason we went to Tavern 1757 in the first place, and it was excellent. The wine list is good and the desserts were excellent. The portion sizes were decent - not too much and not too little. With the exception of the bread, everything was fresh and very tasty and well prepared but not overwhelmed with the sauces. We left satisfied but not stuffed and will in all likelihood return.

Apps not a good start
Lovely birthday dinner out. But when apps arrived, there was barely a mouthful, although delicious. Stuffed figs (2) was served on a dish smaller than a drink coaster. The warm beet salad was less than 1 beet cut into tiny morsels and spaced out an inch apart on a serving platter (or so it seemed). Again, delicious but far too little for the price. The entrees were fabulous and properly portioned (a relief after the apps!). Pan seared duck beast was served over a kale/wild rice/cranberry bed and the beef short ribs out shining everything served. Wine recommendation by staff was perfect. Beautiful setting!
