The atmosphere was cool and a bit transient. Seemed like folks were in and out and was definitely a bar stopover for those walking around the square. I would go back, but probably only for a drink.

Excellent food and solid service. The outside bar staff was attentive and had excellent recommendations. The dining staff was good, but not outstanding. The chef is creative with fish and beef. There is not as many vegetarian or vegan dishes as I'd expect for leading edge restaurant. The grounds are beautiful. Be sure to save some time to wander around the restaurant and see the museum quality artworks.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. It was Mother's Day, so it was very busy. The only negative feedback I have is that the restaurant called & emailed me around 5:00 pm the day before and wanted me to verify our reservation. I was not available the entire evening and did not read my email until the next morning when I found that they had canceled my reservation because they did not hear back from me. They canceled my reservation at 9:00 pm the night before, only giving me 4 hours to respond. That was very frustrating! This may be just their practice on holidays, but I did not appreciate it. The good news is, however, I called the restaurant and they immediately gave me my reservation back. I guess they were going to hold the canceled slots for walk-ins. It was NOT customer friendly to me, however, having made the reservation a week in advance. But, worked out fine in the end.

Enjoyed a Mother's Day celebration sitting outside. Weather was iffy for rain, but atmosphere too good to pass up the outdoors. We were guaranteed a seat inside if it started to rain. It did rain, but we were comfortable and very well shielded from the rain. The Owner even put a cone on the street to ensure no cars splashed water onto the customers. Fantastic food, excellent service! Loved sitting on the patio. Our waitress and the Owner were very attentive. Crab dip and pimento cheese dip to die for! Everyone enjoyed their meals and food was prepared to perfection.

The food at 1920 was very good and we really enjoyed it. Everything we ordered was very good: pimento cheese dip, fried shrimp, southern fried chicken, crab cakes, coleslaw, black and blue salad and chocolate truffle cake. Decor was nice and had a deco feel. A few negatives: The pimento cheese dip (delicious) was served with only four triangles of pita bread which is insufficient for the amount of dip. The kitchen needs to add more bread and maybe some raw veggies to dip in it. It was very loud but It was Mother’s Day so it may not always be. They advertised free valet parking but the hostess informed us the valet never showed up to work. Parking around Canton Street can be difficult. Be mindful that the floors are also extremely slippery. Overall, the quality of the food would bring us back.

Overall a good experience on Mother's Day. Was a little busier than usual and therefore slower service but still a good early dinner. The Seared tuna was great and the piccata, though non traditional style, was also tasty. Will be back again....

We sat outside and enjoyed people watching At one point is vegan to rain lightly and the host immediately checked on us to see if the rain was coming in to us. The roof was blocking most of it so we were ok.
The food was great and the service was too.
We would recommend this place for great food and atmosphere.

We eat at 1920 Tavern often. The food and service are consistent, and we like sitting outside despite the traffic noise on Canton street. We have noticed that their prices seem to have gone up in the last year or two--along with cocktail prices being some of the highest around. We enjoyed 1920 for their value and the quality of food, but now we may reserve our dining here to lunchtime, with lesser lunchtime prices. Still, it's good food and if you don't mind paying their prices for a dinner entree and cocktail, it's worth a visit.

My friend and I went to enjoy dinner and the overall experience was uncomfortable. Keep in mind this was a Monday night and the restaurant was NOT busy. There are too many tables for the space at the front of the restaurant. The server at our adjoining table knocked ME out of the way to rest her hand in the center of our table while she chatted with her patrons. No apology from her for her behavior. I’m actually surprised that she was allowed to serve food as she looked as if she hadn’t bathed in a few days, and that’s the nicest thing I can say about her. Our own server barely came over to us and didn’t refill drinks or really bother with anyone in the restaurant. Instead, all the servers congregated at the bar and had a grand old time amongst themselves. My friend and I noticed a couple of folks come to the bar and they were not acknowledged, so they left. Again, did I mention that they weren’t busy? Let’s get to the food. My friend ordered shrimp and grits and it was a soupy mess. I ordered the short rib appetizer and it was cold. I also ordered the mussels and those were positively anorexic. The whole experience was so disappointing as I very much wanted to try this place out. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone.

I think Easter Sunday was not the usual service quality. Eggs benedict came out runny after specifically requesting hard. Very noisy in the corner booth with service door banging every 2 minutes. Condiments not brought out. One guests food arrived 10 minutes after everyone else.

We went based on open table reviews for my moms 70th birthday. The menu was a crowd pleaser as we were dining with 7 people ages 2-70 with three kids under ten. There was something for everyone. I loved the small plates menu to have a salad and a crab cake. And it was plenty for a full meal. My husband loved his dry rubbed chicken and the kids had potato skins , Brussel sprouts and pasta. The back room was perfect as we had seven people and the front would’ve been too loud for us to hear each other. My only complaint was things kept getting taken from the table we weren’t finished with, it would’ve been simple to just ask if we were finished before taking it. My sparkling water glass disappeared and my daughters dinner also left the table without even being asked if we wanted it to take home(there was a ton left), but they made a new one for us to take. Otherwise we found the setting fun for a birthday 🍰, with a creative menu and very nice staff. I think they were just being expeditious in turning tables on a busy night so maybe they need to just make sure people are done with plates and it would be a five star review from me.

Food was amazing. It was everything most restaurants and food places have been missing in my opinion. Great portions and extremely flavorful. Not a place for an intimate date only because it was so loud (not a negative just saying) will be going again soon.
