    Very crowded for an early Fri. night. Huge bar crowd and surprisingly noisy for an outdoor venue. The tables are situated on a patio overlooking the golf course. Drinks were very pricey and somewhat watered down. the salmon entree was just OK and the spinach side was rather tasteless. Dessert just OK. Nice to dine outside as there are few venues for that in this area. The service was rushed. The waitress rushed us throughout the meal, asking us if we were ready to order constantly though it was obvious that we were busy talking. She actually took my plate away without asking while I was still eating! My friend had to defend her dessert at least 3 times! I would suggest this for a the atmosphere and not the food or the service.

    Service was good but the food was very disappointing. Seems like the bar is the real draw here. I was disappointed that I made a reservation online and specified that I wanted outdoor seating but was told when I arrived that the online reservation system does not allow for outdoor requests, so I could either wait one hour for outdoor or take the table reserved inside. Since the food was so uninteresting, and I did not even get the seating I requested, I will neither visit Tavola again or recommend it to friends.

    at outside for the first time and nice view of the golf course. Also have fire pits and sofas for later in the night. The pizza was pretty good as was the Rueben. Lunch menu has a diverse selection and being able to eat outside and enjoy the weather is a big plus.

    When I nade reservatiins via Open Table, I was expecting to eat on the gorgeous outside patio. The outside ambience is beautiful! Attractive bar and comfortable furniture, heat kamps and live music. Unfortunately, not Tavolas fault but Mother Natures, we are inside. I had salmon that was ver good. I had two glasses of house Pinot Noir and wished I had checked the price. I would not have drank it if I knew it was $11 per glass.Also did not know the special was $42. We should have probably asked. Just letting you know so you bring more money! I would love to try again and sit under the stars,listening to live music, and drinking a cold beer!

    Dined with at Tavola. We don't see each other often so our conversation was lively and probably loud at times. The staff could not have been more accommodating. Courtney anticipated our needs and helped us make some food and drink choices. The food was awesome and plentiful. Overall a fabulous experience!

    My husband and I went to Tavola on Saturday night for dinner with another couple. We had a great table overlooking the golf course and when the sun went down the staff turned on heat lamps that kept the chill away and created a really nice atmosphere. And the live acoustic music was a nice bonus. Our server was great - very friendly and personable. The food was fantastic. We tried the seafood tower as an app, which was plentiful and delicious - well worth the price. We were celebrating a birthday so had dessert and it was also delicious. A favorite was the fried cheesecake - amazing! Overall it was a great experience.

    The food, drinks, view and outside dining experience make tavolas definitely somewhere I'd dine again. The only downfall I'd say is the tables...they are fold ups and are very unsteady while eating. Other than that I enjoyed the place and will be back.

    Our entire dinner was rushed as if we a couple sitting in the corner waiting for us to leave. The waiter even joked that he would be back in thirty seconds for our entrée order.Appetizers were done very well, but the salads arrived before we finished the apps. Dinner arrived half way through our salads and we sent them back,as we were attempting to make a statement! The waiter was oblivious. We dine out several times a week, but we haven't been rushed this much in a long time. (typical "treat em and street em" attitude) The staff has obviously been schooled this way. Our entire dinner was served in less than 1 hr and 10 minutes.

    We had a 3:30pm reservation. When we arrived we were told we had only two hours to eat because of the rain they could not sit diners outside and they would need the room for the dinner crowd. We were only a party of there so two hours was more than enough time but it made us feel unwelcome. Also, we were shown a LUNCH menu from which we made our selections. But when we got our bill we noticed that the prices were higher on our meals than listed on the menu, I.e. crab cakes listed for $19 but on the bill they were $25. It amounted to an increased bill of $24. We had the bill corrected after several requests and a talk with the manager. Their explanation was that the bill reflected the DINNER prices. At 3:30 in the afternoon?

    Visited Tavolo's outside dining for the first time - and the place is really very nice. Friendly staff and good service. Food was good - appetizer that was really good - the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella. Sandwiches were what you would expect. Specialty cocktails were very good too - and refreshing - the cucumber dill lemonade and the purple haze were yummy. I'd definitely go back for a pleasant afternoon lunch/drink/snack...

    Food, service and ambiance all get 5 stars!! I only say "except" because the $11 drinks were weak. Honestly, I think they literally didn't put any alcohol in any of them. I had 3, waiting for my guests, on an empty stomach and nothing. I switched to water and left it at that. Even a soda, if I drank soda, would have given me more of a buzz.

    We've been here twice before. The food is delicious. Our server, Doug, was great. He was very friendly and knowledgable. The manager was not very helpful. We walked in and he sat us. He said he would bring menus, he forgot them when he came back to offer us drinks. I asked what craft beers they had on tap and he froze. He said he would get me a beer menu. Meanwhile. Our server came to take our drink order. I received my beer around the sme time the manager brought me a beer menu. I politely thanked him and said I already ordered one. He continued to tell me that 'I guess that could be considered a craft beer'. News flash ... It was a craft beer. I would go back, though, because we've never had issues there before last night.

    Went here for the first time on a Saturday night. The outdoor setting is very nice. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Unfortunately for me, there was not one entree that was vegetarian/vegan, so I had to order a salad and bruschetta for dinner. For that reason and the mainly "Delco" crowd, I will probably not return.

    They really have a beautiful outdoor setting. Some of the dishes were quite good: the rigatoni Bolognese, Kennett mushroom pizza, cheese quesadilla (loaded with good veggies). Not overpriced. Unfortunately those positives do not outweigh the negative of the overcooked and bland mahi mahi. I could not eat more than few bites, fortunately others at the table were less discerning and helped consume the tasteless fish. They are very disorganized, even our server mentioned a couple of times how things were in a state of disarray. He was nice, but we never did understand why it was so hard to get a table outside at first when the deck was only one third full, and never did fill up while we were there. Won't hurry back.

    The food was very good and was served with great eye appeal. However, when we first sat down, I commented that the air conditioning was blowing directly down my back and could we move to a different table? I was told they would adjust the air conditioner. It took about 45 minutes for the air to stop blowing down upon us. The wait time for our food seemed very long, but that could be because the food was prepared fresh. I

We had the seafood specials, they were amazingggg! Every staff member was helpful and cheerful. The outside area was the best part. Very new and clean and well kept. Great live music, but still able to hold a conversation with someone- not too loud. the scenery was great, we watched the sunset while sitting at the bar. The firepit is really nice too.. again, very clean and well kept/

    Was an all around great experience. But the waiter either forgot about us or was very slow. WAited a while for our appitizers when people who sat down after us received them before us. Then when we finally got them our meals came out right on top of them. Also just to get him to bring us new drinks was a little of a hassle. Outside of that it was perfect!!!

    Nicely decorated with a beautiful view and friendly staff. Service was a little slow and you didn't get a lot of food for the price. i ordered a linguini dish and asked for al dente. I ended up with thin(ner) fettuccine. The dish was Served in a deep bowl instead of a plate. The pasta was on the bottom and the vegetables and chicken were on top. Very difficult to mix the Items. The chicken was dry and not cut into smaller pieces. The pasta was drowning in sauce and really didn't have a lot of flavor. We had to ask for bread halfway through the meal as we never got any. And we had to wave the waitstaff over several times for drink refills. My husband and I ordered seltzer with lime. He got seltzer I got sprite. We will not return for dinner.
