The Liberty Tavern
Great BrunchThe rest of the menu (for dinner or lunch) is also delicious, but I love the Sunday Brunch. It's a great spread of locally sourced food. Coffee flows freely. Brunch fills up quickly, so reserve early.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch SpotLiberty Tavern is my new favorite brunch spot. I'm not sure how many restaurants have house-smoked salmon on the buffet, but I'm guessing it's not many. The Sunday brunch is fantastic, with a great selection of salads, fruit, and the usual breakfast items. It also includes the aforementioned smoked salmon, fried chicken, and some great biscuits and homemade gravy with giant chunks of ham. The cheese grits are definitely my weakness!
Wait, did I forget the desserts? Homemade pop tarts!
I would definitely recommend reservations for Sunday, as it gets busy. Well worth taking the time to book through Open Table.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb food and serviceWe celebrated our daughter's college graduation recently on a Saturday night. Despite our large party size (10) and wide age range (6 to 80) the service was seamless. The food, as always, was inventive, flavorful, and well-executed. A new discovery for us was how great the special occasion cakes were (you can order in advance). The new season's menu always offers some interesting takes on old favorites. The wine list is varied and well-priced - not difficult to find a great wine at an affordable price. Hands down our favorite Arlington restaurant for any occasion. We'll be back often.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBlog postingBlog posting from my husband: :http://wp.me/p1iAT1-tm
You can't go wrong at Liberty Tavern.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe server was nowledgableThe server was nowledgable and made very good recommendations. the menu does tend to change from time to time - in a good way - but some favorites are usually there. The service was good, not too attentive but not too forgetful either. The food - fish and beef - was delicious.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMComfort Food, Lively AtmosphereLove coming back to this reliably good restaurant. Service attentive but not obtrusive, food consistently outstanding, very attractive decor. Will be back and back again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness DinnerWe had a party of 8 for a business dinner. All first timers THOROUGHLY enjoyed our meals. We ordered appetizers, salads, entrees, and dessert. One thing I didn't personally like was the Strawberry Jam Tart, it was dry and nothing to wow about. Someone else had the carrot cake and it was divine! We had an outstanding server who had only started a couple of weeks ago, she was very knowledgeable about all foods and very attentive and pleasant! We vowed to come back soon!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GreatThe food and service are always great at Liberty Tavern.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service but....The food and service were great, but I wish it was a little more quiet. The bar music/noise overflowed upstairs to the dining area. We left just in time, as the DJ was just starting play music and it was ridicuously loud. This started at about 9:45, so I am wondering if that is their way to get lingering diners out of the restaurant...it worked!!!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a business dinner andHad a business dinner and wanted to invite my guest to a place he'd never been before while making a good impression. He's a "foodie", but didn't want to travel outside of Arlington for the evening.
I decided that upstairs at Liberty Tavern would provide a vibrant enough atmosphere while still allowing us to speak easily.
We started with the bacon (basically pork belly) and it was marvelous. My Scallops over lentils with roasted beet sauce was TDF (to die for). The service was impeccable and attentive without too much hovering. My associate was duly impressed with our evening and will be returning with his partner next weeked to try other dishes! Thanks Liberty T!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest local eateryAs always, The Liberty Tavern shines for menu diversity, quality, and service. Always impressed with the wait-staff knowledge of wines and cheeses. We love taking new visitors to the Tavern!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday dinnerHad a very nice Sunday dinner for two. Standout is the gnocchi - and the fact that one of us st in the Barack Obama chair! Apparently he dined there in Oct 2011 and they put a small plaque in the chair where he sat!
House made breads are also very good.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group had a fantasticOur group had a fantastic time at brunch.

We had chocolate cheesecake which was outstanding.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingAbsolutely outstanding on every level. Andy, our server, was very friendly and knowledgeable. Food was fantastic! The only thing missing was the Pot de Creme i had been craving since the last time i dined there (lol)! It was amazing.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food! The pork chopGreat Food! The pork chop was recommended and was fabulous. The "industrial" margarita were great too!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was wonderfulThe service was wonderful with outstanding recommendations that fit our group perfectly. Extremely noisy downstairs and some of that drifted upstairs to the dining room but, hey, it's popular so what do you do?4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for Easter BrunchWe went for Easter Brunch based on earlier reviews, and we weren't disappointed. Wonderful selection and friendly service.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Service I Have Ever HadThis is my favorite place to go for Sunday brunch! The food is amazing, and I love the buffet style set up. The best part about my experience this time was my waiter left the restaurant and went to CVS to get me a Gatorade because I was not feeling well. It made me feel truly valued and special. I will definitely be going back because I feel so welcomed every time I walk in and the food is outstanding.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis Sunday Brunch buffetThis Sunday Brunch buffet hits on all cylinders -- the food, the coffee and cocktails, etc... For relaxed elegance spend Sunday here.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVery tender short ribs - overallVery tender short ribs - overall an excellent meal3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great as usual. GotFood was great as usual. Got the cheese platter again with waiter's picks and the short ribs w ravioli. Ravioli was to die for, short ribs were a bit chewy and gamey but the pasta more than made up for it. Finished up with the cream brûlée. Orange gel thing was a little overwhelming but it was off to the side so I was able to enjoy the cream brûlée without it! My friend's pasta dishes disappeared. He ordered 2 halves and was finished with them before I could take 2 bites.
The best part of this meal as always was our waiter Bryan. He always picks out great cheeses for the and is very timely and attentive with out being overbearing. He is great at describing platters and knows the menu! Kudos to him in a city where service can be subpar!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great brunch here.We had a great brunch here. The fried chicken is not to be missed. French press mild but nice change from your standard cup of coffee. Excellent service throughout our visit.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch was fantastic! AttentiveBrunch was fantastic! Attentive servers and ridiculously awesome buffet. Get there before 10 - it gets crazy.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday Brunch Go-ToA group of 4 of us went for their brunch buffet on a Sunday. Tip: make it an early reservation! The crowds arrive around 11:00am, and while the staff does a great job of replenishing the buffet, the area doesn't allow for too many people to stand in line. The french toast is very popular, though my favorite is the mulled apple cider and lox spread.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch at Liberty Tavern isBrunch at Liberty Tavern is really something to be experienced. The breakfast table brunch buffet is anything but standard buffet fare. The food is delicious, constantly refreshed and creative. The housemade Pop-Tarts were delicious and the spinach quiche was fantastic. I'm a vegetarian so finding things to eat at buffets can sometimes be tricky, but this was fantastic for vegetarians, carnivores and everything in between. Highly recommend.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good but it wasThe food was good but it was a little cold. And I didn't see the mussel in the white wine sauce.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent spot for a businessExcellent spot for a business lunch in Arlington, VA. Great food, great service!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was outstanding.Our waiter was outstanding. I've had him before when I've eaten at Liberty Tavern and I can't write enough compliments about him. Also, your manager on duty that day was outstanding. The restaurant was crowded with people enjoying brunch so there was a delay in seating us at the time we had reserved. He came over, asked if we would like anything to drink and then graciously gave me my "virgin bloody mary" on the house. He even refused my tip saying that I should add it to the tip for our waiter.
It's this type of superb customer service, combined with consistently delicious food, that keeps bringing me back to Liberty Tavern. And these are the reasons that I continue to highly recommend it to people.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of our regularThis is one of our regular go-to restaurants. Mussels with smoky fennel broth is magical. Octopus was a bit off tonight though (tough and old-tasting). We both tried the ravioli with short ribs. Very nice. Waitress was very nice: she remembered us from before although we don't remember her. Baby boomer memory loss, I guess.1/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe brunch was great. ThereThe brunch was great. There were a multitude of options (including for dessert)! The only downside was children sitting next to us that were kicking the connected bench seating with parents who didn't care. Not Liberty Tavern's fault at all.12/30/2012 12:00:00 AMThanks, Will! Our group ofThanks, Will! Our group of 4 had our Holiday Brunch Gathering at The Liberty Tavern on Sunday, 12/2 (2nd year in a row at The Liberty Tavern). I also visit this restaurant any time I can. Cool vibe!
