AwesomeNever fail, consistantly awesome food and service!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place but priceyWe went on Motthers day with a party of 8. The service was excellent, food was great, atmosphere was unique. Overall I really enjoyed the experience. The only drawbacks, the portions are really small and the prices are just to high for those small portions. I would definitely go back, but next time I'd probably eat a small meal before going and than just enjoy drinks at the bar, which were also over-priced so only one or two while enjoying the atmosphere. If not for the small overpriced portions, I would of given it 5 stars.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding in every wayThis is a wonderful restaurant with very innovative menu. The food is expertly prepared,tastes incredible and the presentation worthy of any fine restaurant you could name. Such a gem in an area that is trying hard to gentrify. Parking is somewhat rustic and I'd like to see a paved lot instead of gravel but that is a small matter actually. We have dined there now 6 times and have never been disappointed. Food is pricey but worth it. Cocktails are quite reasonably priced.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good restaurantThe food was delicious. Service was great. Not fond of the interior re-do. I think they should have left some of the "colonial" feel to the restaurant like the way it used to be. Even with updating it to look contemporary, they should have gone with more neutral colors. Don't like the red and black all over the place.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA lovely time!Decided to go for a pre-Mother's Day dinner on Saturday.
Tavro13 was one of the best dining experiences that I've had outside of NYC. Our server, Anthony, was fantastic and the food was prepared perfectly. I had the pork belly for an app, and duck as my entree. Delish! My Mom had the Halibut, and the oysters to start. My Dad had the radish salad followed by the pork chop. The pork chop was HUGE!
We were quite pleased and discussed returning at a later date. My parents are still relatively new to area and are still trying to navigate the Southern NJ/SE PA world to find decent eating establishments. I believe they will certainly be back and bringing along their friends. Definitely worth it and in such a quaint setting.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSo glad it's up the street!We live 2 minutes up the road and we are very happy this spot is so close by. We ate pretty late and the food was still very good. We didn't feel rushed and our server was awesome. The cocktails were excellent and the bar was great. We will be back again for sure.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMworth the short drive....amazing atmosphere and food. cocktail menu is fun and delicious! a great experience. please everyone go visit Tavro 13 so we can keep some big city style in small town South Jersey! 30 min from cherry hill, I-295 south to exit 11. i look forward to going back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMenu choices and food wereMenu choices and food were excellent...the Lamb Belly is a must! Service was good, waitress was attentive but needs a little refining for the caliber that the restaurant portrays.
When making a reservation be specific on seating request. Our reservation was made for "The Restaurant" and we were seated in the bar area?...not the quiet, romantic restaurant area we were expecting. Now that we are familiar with Tavro 13 we will make our reservation with a specific seating request, as the manager could not accommodate our request to be moved into the much quieter section. Overall a refreshing alternative to going into the city, we are looking forward to returning.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for dessertThe food and service were great. Whoever is making the desserts is truly talented. I have have dined at some of the finest restaurants in the country, I.e., Le Bernardin, The French Laundry, etc. and my olive oil lemon cake would have been right at home in either place. My two criticisms are that some of the tables are WAY too close together and that chef is sometimes a little over zealous with Middle Eastern spices on lamb dishes. Overall, it is a very good restaurant and I would definitely go there again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went back after about threeWe went back after about three months. Service was impeccable. Bartender was a real pro and really fun. Sets you up for a nice evening. Food in the dining room was really, really good. Giant Rib Eye, sea bass, short ribs. Dessert was innovative and yummy.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were happy with each andWe were happy with each and every course. Even received complimentary liqueurs to sample. Our waiter - Anthony - was very attentive and helpful.
wonderful menu.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was out first dining experienceIt was out first dining experience at Tavro13 and I will definitely be back again! Food and Service was top notch! It's nice to see something new and different in Swedesboro. It's worth the price of each plate. I recommend the NY Strip Steak and Sea Scallops!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was great! WeThe service was great! We were a coupkes for dinner. Three of our four mains were very good. One of the party had problem with pork dish that could not be prepared at desired cooking temperature. After the second time , it was finally revealed that the request could not be met. It would have been better that we were told that up front and ordered another dish.
However, the response from server and manager was after problem was fine and showed very good customer service.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Neighborhood GemI've eaten here four times now and love this little hidden gem. Tucked into the sleepy town of Swedesboro, NJ is a restaurant that you could easily find in Philly or New York. Small plates but extremely tasty. The bar scene is almost better than the restaurant with an extremely cool menu and some of the best local beers on tap. Will keep coming back over and over.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMust try !!!!!!!!!!!!Been in the business for over 20 yrs as a executive chef this place has it all from the bar to the dinning it's simply great !

The dining room was too warm and your patrons did not want to sit near the fireplace. The food was exceptionally good and the service provided by Ms Nicolosi was very good.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA special eatery, ahead ofA special eatery, ahead of the neighborhood, so plan time for the meal.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe main dining room is tooThe main dining room is too loud.

What a pleasure to have an accessible fine restaurant in Southern New Jersey!! I have been recommending it to friends since my first visit in December!!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable Anniversary dinnerWe made reservations for a Friday night without realizing it was SJ Hot Chefs week! We were lucky enough to be there on the last night and both got the $35/4 course option. The food was delicious and they had a lovely Malbec to go with it. Service was excellent and placement next to the fireplace was perfect since I forgot to bring my sweater in (I am always cold). This is a wonderful find in South Jersey! We usually head into Philly for our anniversary dinner and were so glad we gave Tavro 13 a chance. We will definitely be back!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe attended for restaurantWe attended for restaurant week which was a great way to try out this new restaurant. Three of the four in our party ordered from the fixed price menu while I ordered a la carte. The food was good but not really exceptional. The service was impecable and the ambiance was ecclectic and fun! We will try again when it's not restaurant week.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was wonderful. ServiceFood was wonderful. Service was great. My only complaint was that we were seated near the bar area, near a back door that everytime it was opened we were hit by a blast of cold air. Would have preferred seating in the main dining area near the fireplace. But will go back and give them a second try.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious and theFood was delicious and the price was a bargain because of South Jersey Restaurant Week.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been for lunch a fewI've been for lunch a few times and the food was good but never been for dinner. Decided to give it a try during restaurant week on March 19, 2013 for dinner and I was not disappointed.Everything was absolutely amazing and I will definitely will dine there again in the near future..3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a pleasant surprise!I stumbled upon Tavro 13 when looking for a restaurant close to the Auburn Road Winery because we had a tour there for my wife's birthday. Little did I know the gem that I would discover! An absolutely delicious 3 course brunch with a smoked trout appetizer, and the best corned beef hash- made on site the night before- that I have ever had. Then add a dcelicious lemon olive oil cakle for dessert; not to mention the bottomless Bloody Marys and Momosas! This was all for a price that could not be beat. The service was wonderful; attentive and informative. They were very pleasant and made a special effort for my wife's birthday. It was overall an outstanding experience, and we are sure to be back. (With friends!)3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMVery cool looking restaurantVery cool looking restaurant and bar. A lot went in to the aesthetics and decor, looked like a trendy nyc restaurant. Many good choices on bar menu and dining menu very "foodie" with interesting things to try. Our meal was delicious. The only drawback was that we waited more than 45 mins past our reservation time to finally sit down and eat.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at the restaurantFirst time at the restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, the portions were perfect. They have a very nice and edited international wine list. The restaurant was warm and beautiful. We had a corner table by a window which was the perfect seat in the house. I will definitely be back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved It!Had a great dinner! Our server Lauren was friendly, knowledgable, and really seemed happy to serve us! The food was phenomenal and dessert was AMAZING! Will definitely go again!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I visited TavroMy wife and I visited Tavro 13 for the first time this past Sunday. The menu was a bit limited because they concentrate on preparing a few excellent dishes each night it appears as opposed to having a 'diner style' menu. With that said, there were a number of fish, poultry, pasta and steak options so no particular taste was overlooked. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was quite nice. We will definitely go again.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTavro 13 was phenomenal. TheTavro 13 was phenomenal. The food was delicious. The staff was exquisitely trained. The atmosphere was delightful.

Can't wait for my next visit!2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I brought my sisterMy wife and I brought my sister and brother-in-law here for dinner. It was the first time at Tavro 13 for all of us, and we were impressed. The food was delicious and carefully presented. One thing we all loved was the bread - a kind of deep dish pan bread - that's served with both butter and olive oil on the side. The service was attentive and pleasant. We dined relatively early, so the restaurant was quiet during our stay except for the piped-in music. The seating is a little tight, as some other reviewers have noted, but its nothing that manners and common condsideration can't overcome.2/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
