    We ordered the lentil cakes, they were pretty mushy and we ended up just eating the pita bread that came with it. The salads were alright.

    Everything was excellent! Got reservations thru Open Table, had to wait about 10 minutes - we waited in the bar area which was full and lively. Got our table, server was there immediately. Wine list was fine and not silly expensive. Dinner was great, wife had the scallop special and I had the Osso Buco - both meals were just amazing, and a good value as the prices were ~$22 each. We finished the meal off with the donut dessert which was truly without equal. Highly recommend, we will certainly be back when we have the opportunity again.

    We love this place! You are always met with smiles and we appreciate the personalization of the staff when it comes to their customers! We took another couple for dinner who had not been there before and they had such a great time and experience! We were a bit disappointed that the "Catch of the Day" was gone by 7ish but that happens sometimes. We will also anticipate and look forward to experiencing some new food offerings in the upcoming year added to those old favorites on the menu. The food is always prepared well and is wonderful. We are fortunate to have the Tavern in Prairie Village!

    Our server was great. The only downfall was the constant flow of people walking through the outdoor dining area (some with dogs!). Is there any way to block this to force those that are not restaurant patrons to use the sidewalk outside of the eating area?

    This store has upped its food quality every time we come. Service is prompt and cook times are spot on. The pricing is incredibly competitive for the area and you really get a bang for your buck. We go for the entrée salads and they are hard to beat for the price. First time to have the spinach and scallop salad and it may have been the best yet. So glad they are in the neighborhood!

    I had the special salad and it was great, with grilled shrimp, lemon, quinoa. I didn't want too much kale, so the server suggested using romaine. Great idea - it was perfect. Great service.

    We live in south Overland Park, but are NEVER disappointed when we visit Tavern in the Village. The wait staff is knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic, but not overboard. There is always a choice on the menu that fits my vegetarian/vegan preference, or they are happy to accommodate what I need. If you're in the mood for a splurge, the homemade donuts and beignets are a delightful dessert. We've been for brunch, lunch and date-night dinner and have always had a great experience!!

    This restaurant is a neighbourhood gem. Informal and family friendly, it is a relaxing place to be, although the noise level can get a little high sometimes. The acoustics could be improved, they need to call in an expert. Food and service were excellent. Food quality and presentation has greatly improved over the 4 years we have been going there. Quality food and at a good value, specials add variety to the standard menu that changes very little. With the re-vamping of The Village surroundings this place is set to be even more popular in the future.

    Not saying this was a bad experience. Just saying I was expecting better. Waiter was very nice but I thought he was slow in responding to tables needs. Also, he could not describe the food very well when asked. I had chicken parmesan and it was a little tough. My friend had pork osso bucco and it seemed to be mostly bone. My husband had the Cuban sandwich and said it was very good. Prices were a little high and all the red meats seemed to be spicy. Not good when you don't like spicy. Would not rush back here but it was ok.

    To celebrate the sale of their home, I treated my Sellers to a nice lunch at the Tavern. Being one of my favorites, the Tavern never disappoints! I love the ambiance, the friendly staff, the diverse menu & of course the excellent food. My "go to" is the beef stroganoff for dinner and the yummy crab cake sandwich at lunch! My clients devoured their sandwiches; they had not experienced the Tavern at lunch time. Thank you, Kelly, for stopping by and saying hello & making us feel welcomed. Together, my clients and I had an enjoyable, celebratory time at the Tavern & a lunch that was delish!

    The food was amazing, and the wait staff was very friendly. We did have trouble getting there, due to road construction, but that was hardly the fault of the restaurant. I would highly recommend this place for brunch, but give yourself plenty of time to get there, if you go in the next few months.

    It was really loud and we were sat at a small uncomfortable table. The food was good. I probably won't be back. There needs to be better separation of bar and restaurant. Crazy kids at a table next to us. This did not feel upscale other than the prices. I was disappointed
