    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.

    Positives: Service/table were excellent & food was great (ordered veg quesadilla & cheesesteak eggrolls, both served hot). Negative: Drinks were way over-priced - have never before paid $10.50 for a Bloody Mary (no special liquor requested) & the Martini was $11.

    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 came here for dinner before an event in the country club. The atmosphere is great. Really nice and clean inside. Great service, very attentive. 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/

    We made reservations for a family of 10 for the Tavola Restaurant, however, the restaurant was closed and we were told it was a line buffet and we could sit wherever we could find a seat. We all walked out. They even called to confirm the day before . . . NEVER AGAIN!! I used to love this place, but apparently it is not the classy, quiet place I knew from the past.

    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.

    The room is too small for a brunch. The tables were very close and there was not alot of walking room to and from the buffet. Also, there wasnt a clear place to check in at the bar area. We entered from the main hall and did not know where the hostess was stationed. Waiting by the bar was difficult because we were always in the way of the servers. The layout needs to be re-planned. The food was very good and we would come again, but the space is tight and the room was loud.

    First time at the restaurant to celebrate birthdays in the family. Overall the food was fair and not worth the overall price of the meal. The wedge salad was good and that was the highlight of the night. The salmon entree was ok, but did come with a good portion of vegetables. The mahi mahi tacos were very dry and not very flavorful. The scallops were ok and the linguini and clams was very garlicly and it masked the rest of the taste of the dish. The beer selection was a disappointment as just the very basic, large macrobrewery offers. Would avoid a return trip and try other restaurants in the area. Server started out great but faded towards the end although she was very nice.

    We enjoyed the food and so did our kids. It was nice that we could get a full course dinner and the kids could get apps and pizza. We finished our meal with dessert. We didn't mind paying 7 dollars for the large piece of cake, but my son asked for ice cream with it . We received one scoop of ice cream and we were charged 7 for that. I think we'll have dessert at home next time.

    I booked a table for a special occasion. From the really bad art to the really tough waffles, it was just not good. The service was good, but WOW...food was mediocre at best. The highlights were: the sausage/bacon was good and they had smoked salmon. Of concern was: tough lobster ravioli, crunchy, tough waffles, music choice (1970s - 80s soft rock - GAH), tough beef dish of unknown name, sticky mac and cheese. I wanted soo much to like this. But if you're going to charge $25 a person, you better provide decent food. What a disappointment

    We went on a whim on a Wednesday evening and honestly didn't know what to expect as we hadn't heard much about Tavola. It was quiet. but got busier as the evening went on. We had a wonderful meal! The calamari was really good and the "special" dinner of scallops with stuffed rigatoni and broccoli rabe was excellent. I think there may have been a dozen HUGE scallops in the dish...who does that?!. .Brendan, our waiter, could not have been nicer or more attentive. We will definitely be back and send our friends.
