    Parking at lunch time is horrendous, had to hunt for a parking place and then finding one a good distance from the restaurant, making us five minutes late. Then when 2 of us (Party of 4) arrived at the restaurant, I asked the other 2 had arrived, was told not only had the other 2 not arrived but that they didn’t have my reservation. After 15 minutes, they finally found the reservation and discovered the other 2 in our party were seated.

    I have always had a great meal at Rye, the food is fantastic, love the atmosphere, in the summer they have the greatest outdoor seating in the city, love it! the Fried Chicken, Picnic Pork and my two favorites but if you're in the mood for a steak this would be the place to go!

    Food is consistently very good, have had a number of items from the menu. The service has been fantastic, the rare occasion that the meal was not up to par, it was swiftly replaced and a manager visitied the table. The staff are friendly and fun, but not overbearing or annoying. Many great options for seating, can accommodate large parties while still keeping the ambiance intimate. I have had nothing but great experiences in the many times I've dined here.

    We wanted tp try a new spot for my husband's birthday brunch. This was fantasti.! He had Eggs Benedict which was very good. I had the dish with the baguette bread, salame, egg and mornay sauce. It was fabulous! The Mimosas were very good and made from fresh orange juice. Service was very nice. I would love to go back soon. It was worth the drive across town.

    Our servers name was Mel. She was fantastic! Attentive and polite without being too pushy. I appreciate that level of service. We also had a table visit from a manager who really cared about what she was doing. My osso bucco, while able to be fleshed off the bone with a fork was extremely dry. I should have said something but the restaurant was busy and I didn't want to look like a crybaby. This visit contrasts with other visits where I have had the stir fry and crab cake BLT and loved both entrees. This is truly a great restaurant but I don't think I'll do the osso bucco again.

    This is a very nice restaurant. It has a nice Romance style. The food is very nice with unique flavors. For example they had squash Pasta. thing I would recommend is for more vegetarian options. At this time they have 1 to 2 options on the main menu. They should consider other colorful or unique dishes.

    The Crab Cakes and Artichoke & Risotto Croquettes were exceptional. The Caesar Salad was very good. We were excited to taste our entrees. The daily special scallops wrapped in bacon were delicious. The Beef Stoganoff and brussel sprouts were not edible. The beef was exceptionally tough as was the brussel sprouts. The brussel sprouts were very woody and hard and needed cooked a minute more. The Chicken Parmesan was bland and the chicken very dry. Our consensus was that we should have stopped at appetizers and salads but then again we did enjoy the fresh made donuts and peach cobbler after our meal.

    We had outstanding service at Tavern, especially given that our first server was in training. Well they are training her right! Our servers were attentive, always refilling our wine and water glasses without being asked, making sure our food was delivered all at once and checking in regularly without being intrusive. The food was great too--the beef stroganoff was high-end comfort food, and the calamari appetizer was excellent. Good wine list.

    Met some friends we are getting to know better so a good spot to please many tastes with their varied menu. We had one of the best waiters I've ever had (wish I could remember his name!) - just the right amount of attention and remembered details most would forget. The bar up front was very loud on a Wed evening and the first dining room only slightly less so but the farthest dining area, altho not as nicely decorated, was enough distance form the party atmosphere until a group of rowdy women came thru, but luckily they settled into manageable conversation after some time. Food was quite good - not stellar but certainly enjoyable. Prices are pretty reasonable.

    Because we enjoy Mission Farms, we thought we would try the Tavern to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Maybe because of the name, the location and price points, we expected more of a warm, inviting decor. It was nice, but a little stark and contemporary for our tastes. My wife ordered the puff pastry seafood potpie, and it was delicious! The cajun ribeye and andouille sausage hash were tasty, but would substitute the creamed spinach next time. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. A manager named Christy visited our table twice, and acknowledged our anniversary. When we received our check, they had graciously comped our peach cobbler dessert! Next time, we may sit in the bar area (hope we hear the grand piano) or on the patio.

    We celebrated with family my husband's birthday at the Tavern. There were four adults and three children under six at our booth. Mitch, our waiter, was wonderful and we all had a great time. The food was very good, but the highlight was the very large slice of chocolate cake Mitch brought to our table for my husband. The children's eyes lite up at the sight. Thanks for the very nice experience.

    This is my third time to dine at the Tavern. On all occasions the food and service was excellent. However, on this visit food was excellent but our server rushed us. We brought friends from out of town, and of corse, we wanted to visit. After our server told us about the specials, opened the wine, he asked if we were ready to order. Several minutes later he returned and seemed anxious for us to place our orders. We felt rushed . After paying the check, one person in our party decided to order another drink. Our server told us he had already "checked out" and got another server to bring the drink. Didn't leave until 11:00 so it is doubtful they would turn the table again.

    One of our go-to places for both lunch and dinner. On our last visit there, we ordered the mussels. They were about 1/4" in size and 1/3 of them were not opened and could not be eaten. The manager was wonderful--he gave us another order of mussels (which were the same size), and told us we could eat until we had our fill of mussels on the house. He handled the situation perfectly.

    Tavern at Mission Farms is one of my favorite local gems whether for a business lunch, dinner with the family or eating out with a group. On this particular occasion, my family and I were celebrating my mom's 65th birthday. Knowing this, the hostess, Sharon, seated us in a private room -- an extra special touch which was greatly appreciated. The menu was perfect for our group -- everyone was able to find something delicious. No doubt, I'll be back again next week -- I'm happy to be a regular!

    From the greeting at the door by the hostess, to the good-bye and come back, this was an exquisite experience. As a party of 3, we had the crabcakes, risotto balls and shrimp appetizers, the surf & turf special along with the beef stroganoff and finished with the donuts & the chocolate cake to go. Our server was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable yet unobtrusive. The food was a parade of fantastically paired items that were not only artful masterpieces but tasty delicacies. This will definitely be a go to on our list.
