    Everyone from hostess to server were very friendly and knowledgeable. Our waitress was just great. The setting could not have been better for a quiet intimate for my husband's birthday. The food was excellent. We had pecan chicken & country boil......portions were very generous. Would recommend the taverne to our friends.

    We are pretty tough critics. Had a great Saturday night meal. I had the walleye, my companion the seared tuna. We each had a salad. Chop salad and wedge both very good. Generous portions, but not over the top. We both cleaned our plates. Nice beer selection (bottles). Lemon drop martini well prepared. Service was very good. Next time we will call earlier to reserve an outdoor table, but it was also very pleasant inside too. Meal exceeded our expectations.

    We dined at the Taverne of Richfield and had a lovely evening out on the absolutely beautiful patio. I had the ohio city shrimp pasta which was delicious! The cajun cream sauce it was served was wonderful and just the right amount of heat. My boyfriend had the low country boil which was a nice sized portion of the crab, clams, and shrimp too! Their drink list is large with so many delicious choices, I had a basil crush, it was so refreshing! Our server informed us of live music in the martini lounge which is a fun scene downstairs as well! Our waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and was very friendly! We will definetely be coming back to dine at the Taverne of Richfield

    I met a friend at the Taverne of Richfield on a weeknight and the patio was perfect for a more casual night of eating and drinking. We were impressed with the specialty tacos that night--some pretty inventive options that I would love to try another time--but we ended up with the mushroom salad, which was tasty but a little salty, and the rootbeer burger, which was very good. The goat cheese-stuffed jalapeno was a perfect touch. I walked through the inside to the patio and it was very nice, but a little more formal than what we were looking for. I would love to go back and check out some of the other entrees and the martini lounge another night. My husband and I will definitely check it out on a future date night.

    I wasn't sure what to expect here, as the previous reviews were all over the map. I showed up at 6 on a Sunday, and there was only one other table occupied in the main dining room. Not surprisingly, the service was quick. and yes, they did get my Open Table reservation! My waiter was prompt and attentive. I had the Pierogies (made by "the Pierogie Lady") and they were very good. For an entree, the Putanesca with scallops. The scallops were nicely browned, but not over done, with perhaps a scotch more salt than they needed. As for rest of the dish, I'm used to Putanesca with a lot more tomatoes and basil, but it wasn't bad..

    Overall the restaurant was what I was expecting. Decor was very nice, the food was good (skip the granny apple slaw though) and we enjoyed our birthday celebration. Downside...service was very slow. Once the staff noticed us we were seated quickly but then had to wait for about 10-15 minutes before our server came to greet us. It was obvious they had no clue we were coming even though I had made the reservation through this site. I asked questions on this site and never recieved answers. Poor communication

    As always, the Tavern was a very nice, quiet place to have a good meal and conversation, with pleasant service and great food. My ONLY complaint is they were out of two menu items (my first and second choice), but the third choice was very good.

    The service was friendly but SLOW, and there were only 3 tables of diners (so not busy at all). And yet, charcuterie appetizer took 15 minutes, entrees were missing main ingredients, and house wine tasted like it hadnt been stored correctly. It's too bad because the place is lovely and the food has potential. But the service (or lack thereof) really soured the experience.

    This was the worst dining experience I think I have ever had! From the hostess with the appetite ruining skin issue to the vacuum cleaner left out on the backstairs that we had to trudge up and down to get to the patio seating, windex and cleaning rag left out and I haven't even gotten to the dirty stack of plates by the empty, dried out, unappealing presentation of a buffet! I wanted to leave even before we started but where do you go without a reservation on Mother's Day??? The quality of the food, the dirty restaurant, the waitstaff that didn't even greet us with a "Happy Mother's Day" AND the $164 bill for a table of five for a disgusting meal certainly made for memories that we will talk about for years!! DO NOT EAT HERE!

  • Richfield Tavern Work Lunch 4/28/14
    tickedoff
    Dined on 4/28/2014
    I along with 7 co-workers, came for lunch at noon to welcome a new employee. We had a table for 8. They may have only been 3-4 other tables being used in the entire restaurant. I have never waited so long to not only get our drink order, but also for someone to take our food order. Most of us ordered sandwich wraps, soup or salad. These items do not take long to make nor should they, when your restaurant is surrounded by commercial businesses that cater to people that need to get in/get out rather quickly. We were there close to an hour before the food came out to the tables - completely unacceptable. The waitress got many of our orders wrong which means we all did not get to eat at the same time. Then all of our checks were wrong.

    We stopped at the Taverne for a Saturday Night dinner out, and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the efficient wait staff. The place is the same as always,it is small, and a little noisy, but the overall environment is easy and casual. The wait staff is young, but well trained and our server was efficient and attentive to our needs. The best part of all was the food. It was well prepared and delivered on a well planned plate pleasing to the eye.....and did not disappoint. Four of us had a different meal and there were no complaints with the quality nor the quantity of food. My only complaint was that we did not have time to stay and enjoy the blues music heard rolling up the steps from the basement lounge .

    Great place for a romantic outing, great food and plating, my only complaint is more often than not if there is a group of 5-6 people the volume levels skyrocket. Otherwise the place is quiet but sadly a few gregarious customers ruin the ambiance. Aside from that I love this place, and the Martini lounge is my favorite place to go for a drink and live music.

    I took my wife to enjoy a romantic dinner and some live entertainment for our anniversary. Lovely ambiance, food was great, and the band was excellent. We were not the only ones celebrating. There was a hot mess of a 50 something mother who thought she was as young as her youngest son who was (let's hope) at least 21. Who after a little bit of pre-game with her coworkers showed up after the band had been playing for at least a half hour. The celebration of a 50 year olds birthday would have been fine if she dance around with her newly gifted tambouring. She was so loud and annoying that even the acoustic band kindly asked that she stop. We had to leave before my wife had put that tambouring in an uncomfortable place for her. Next time

We finished our meal and then went downstairs to have drinks and dessert. The lounge entertainment was fabulous and we stayed till closing. If you are looking for a full evening of food and entertainment, the Taverne is the best value.

    My husband and I dine at the Taverne of Richfield fairly frequently and enjoy it. Unfortunately a family incident came up (mother-in-law took a fall) and not only did my friend and I not show for this online reservation, I cancelled it late, sorry. We will be back and hopefully without any emergency! My above rating is based on other visits. I have great memories spanning decades of dining here, even in a group setting, never disappointed.

    My party and I went for a nice lunch on a Sunday. This was not my first time at the Tavern and I have become used to good food and great service here. I was very disappointed when they sat us almost on top of the only other party in the room. Yes, it was Bernie Kozar and his party but I could tell that he wanted his dining privacy as we did ours. The tavern was out of some items such as ketchup and the staff must have been new as they did not know how to make drinks or have much experience as wait staff. We had a combination of cold and overcooked food. This is not typical of the Tavern. In the past I have had excellent service and excellent food. I hope this was just a fluke and not indication of a new trend for the Tavern.

    My wife and I have been to the tavern of Richfield many years ago. Looking for somewhere different to dine on Saturday night we came across this suggestion on open table. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised at the intimate and cozy atmosphere. The food was beyond our expectations and The price was very reasonable. We will be back with friends and I would recommend this restaurant to others.
