    We had an awesome waitress loved the Spinach Dip app but not crazy about the BLAT Sandwich...seemed like the bacon was pre-cooked and cold. I typically really enjoy the food in this place, just chalking it off to one of those days...is was kinda slow.

    It is a sports bar so what do you expect on a Saturday night - yes, Stanford versus Oregon. Very loud. We are older so we would appreciate a little less noise, but we came because of the food. I love the BLTA. Probably best for us to come at lunch which we will.

    I need to say I was so very disappointed. There was 4 of us for Easter Brunch Buffet and the selection for the price was quite poor. If this was an $ 18.00 brunch, well, OK, but for almost twice that it was just not complete. The eggs, bacon, and sausage was plentiful however. Our waitperson was not very good as we were always asking for water and soft drinks. While she was always apologetic and polite, we had to just keep reminding her to please bring us beverages. We weren't drinking any alcohol, and in all fairness maybe that was our downfall.

    Excellent overall experience. Tavern Wash Park is a great place to watch football games. We reserved a table for three, and felt bad when our third guest was running late, but the management and servers were very gracious (especially after they seated us at a 6 top, I'm sure they were thinking that they were going to be losing money and tips). Other sports bars might not have been as friendly, but the staff here is great. The bloody mary bar is well stocked, you can make your own with all kinds of add-on ingredients like blue cheese stuffed olives, skewers with pepperoni and artichoke hearts, deviled eggs. My only suggestion might be for them to steal a move from the Sports Column and go to music when the commercials hit the airwaves.

    The Pesto Pizza was very very good and the fries were pretty good as well. We walked to the restaurant and think that is is a good "barish" type food place in the neighborhood, but not the place to go for a special occasion unless your goal is to see any sports game that could possibly be on at the time. More the football scene than the anniversary dinner. The only thing that was not that great was the fact that the tables were fairly tight and there was not much room for a baby stroller and the high chairs are not the type that fit a infant car seat well. Also, the outside spray mist is a little much, felt a little damp when I left

However, this time we made a reservation at this restaurant and when we showed up, they told us that they had given all of the tables away and couldn't honor our reservation. We were told to wait for over an hour for another table to open up. We went to another restaurant that night and won't bother going back to Wash Park Tavern.

The waitress was very accomodating, offered to move us to another table (still on the patio (but away from the draft). Overall, the entire party seemed to enjoy it.

    While the food was good (though the menu is a bit limited) and our service adequate to good, the noise level was overpowering and made our meal less than enjoyable. We had tried this restaurant before and found the noise level unacceptable but we gave it another try. We went early to see if the noise level would be lower. It wasn't and it proceeded to get worse the longer we were there. The final straw was when they put the audio for a football game through the PA system at ear shattering levels. We should have known that going on a Saturday night was probably not a good idea though we thought by going early we would be better off. Finally we had several periods when there was the odor of strong cigarette smoke at our table.

    Mother's Day Brunch. It was a special buffet just for that day so don't plan on this applying all the time. Good buffet, even for kids. A little pricey, but competes with Wash Park Grille, about 3 doors south of here. I would probably not go back for the buffet again, based more on price. The regular menu looked good and prices were more reasonable. We might go back for Sunday brunch when they are not offering the buffet.

    The food was really good and the service was great! Though I didn't realize it was a full blown bar. I thought the dining area would have been away from the bar. We weren't expecting it to be so loud. I'm a little bummed out, because the food was so great I would love to eat there again (the best buffalo calamari I have every had!)but I won't be returning because of how loud it was. My friend and I were unable to carry on a conversation.

    We were going to the Newman Center for a concert and, therefore, made an early reservation (5:30 P.M.) in order to have a leisurely dinner. We informed our waitress of this and ordered drinks and an appetizer. She kept coming by to get our dinner order and we finally gave it to her with the admonition that we did not want to be hurried. Before we had gotten half of the appetizer finished, here came our soup and salads. The food was O.K., not great......no seasoning in the meat loaf. And when the bill came, it was totally incorrect. This is not a place we will put on our favorites list.
