This restaurant is a neighborhood gem! The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The food was beyond outstanding. My husband had the Paella Valencia that was filled with shellfish including half a lobster. I had the Coquille St Jacques that was filled with shrimp and scallops in a delicious sauce. The red sangria was also tasty!

We had to wait about an hour for our food to come. The air conditioner was not working that well and the room was warm.The food was good but we were in a bad mood when it finally arrives.

I always forget to go to this restaurant for some reason. I’m really glad I went because it had been a few years. The food was absolutely fantastic. The sangria was excellent as the other reviews have said. The weather was perfect. I would give it all five stars but it’s missing an ambience or decor vibe that would make it a little more fun. Everything we got was delicious.

This is a cozy small Portuguese restaurant that is doing a good job following Covid-19 protocols. The food was good and so was the service. Their red sangria is very good and a good value at $28 for a pitcher of 6 glasses.

Was not as friendly as our first experience and felt a little slighted by a few things.
1. Questioning us upon arrival about our last reservation when I live in Florida mostly
2. Appetizer was served flamed to others but not us
3. Food was good but not Great

Had another great time at A Taberna!! This time we had the appetizer sampler, the snails, and the fried burrata for appetizers. I had the swordfish special for my meal and I forget the name but a whipped cream desert with almonds. Everything was delicious!!

Had an excellent time at this restaurant. Decided to try Portuguese for Christmas Eve and the food did not disappoint! The best dishes were the shrimp bisque, barramundi, stuffed mushrooms and chocolate cake. I will definitely be returning!

This is not the same place I used to love. The quality was horrendous. Mussels didn’t open and those that did had died. $13 for Portuguese sausage when liquor is poured on top and fired at the table is fine. A plate of cut up circles is not worth it. Stingy on rice and veggies. Green sauce was like soup. Everything except the coffee should not have been served. Absolutely disappointed.
