Enjoyed the frozen rose cocktail, short ribs and appetizers. The kitchen has a couple options for kids if you ask, but there’s no kids menu. We ate on the patio and enjoyed people watching. No complaints. Highly recommended.

Big City has delicious food and good service. The skirt steak is tasty and tender. The fish special was a crispy snapper and vegetables. Wonderful and fresh.

The food was really good but the service was extremely poor. There were 5 of us that went in with a bachelorette and that didn't even prompt good service. The bride's Bellini was essentially just champagne but otherwise the food was very good. The service really tainted the entire experience though. Our server didn't bring drinks when we asked, never came to check on us and we constantly had to flag him down, even to get our check.

We had another great experience at Big City. I had the Pork Chop which was unbelievable. My wife had the short rib which she just loved. Unfortunately we had no room for desert.

We had a 12:30 reservation and arrived a few minutes early. The table was ready for us however clearly the server was not as it took at least 10 minutes for her to come to the table, introduce herself and take our drink orders. It then took another 10-15 minutes for us to get our drinks (which were the unlimited Bloody Marys and Mimosas - premade in pitchers). We finally got our drinks, ordered food and then waited and waited for the food to arrive. Once the food arrived, we did not see our server again unless we got up from our booth to go find her. We told her that 2 people in our party were celebrating birthdays and again, it took forever for her to bring out 2 stale pieces of chocolate cake and then charged us $15 for birthday desserts! Not such a great experience and most likely will not return.

My particular dinner(salmon,mashed potatoes instead of rice and asparagus) was very good. Our waitress was sweet and attentive A+. The menu is weak, you need to update the main course options. The restaurant is pretty. We sat at the high tables this time, nice as the front low tables

The atmosphere was lively and the seating for our group of 6 was ample. I got a filet with white rice, which was delicious. The server was a little aggressive pushing some of the fare, but overall we had a great time.

Very good dinner with my family.
Good food, kick service, attentive waiter.
Good for any occasion, they owed your reservation before walk-ins.
You wouldn’t be disappointed.

Food was good! Prices were a little expensive for what you get. Sat outside and there was live music across the street. The area in general was very nice and lively. I would recommend this place, overall it was very enjoyable.

Went during a boil water order from the city. Our waiter unceremoniously slapped plastic ware down and told us about this. The news was no fault of his but his delivery of said news was not customer friendly. Then I had to request cloth napkins for our large party after noticing that all the other tables around us had been provided with cloth napkins and then he had the nerve to have an attitude.
Anyway as it relates to food we were there for brunch...not much variety on the brunch menu. My waffles we just ok my scrambled eggs in a cup arrive hard and somewhat cold. Certainly wouldn't recommend for brunch.

Our server was so inattentive. Our food was just OK ... It was nothing special but the bill sure was!

I've been here before and had an OK experience. I'm not a fan and won't be back. But the restaurant across the street was really good! Enjoyed a good drink and much better service.

Due to the water crisis, it meant being served on paper and having to pay for water bottles, the food was delicious.

Mains were ok. Apple strudel was straight out of the microwave and heated to molten lava. Pastry layers were wet and soggy. Brought to waiters attention and just shrugged sholders.

This is our 3rd visit to Big City Tavern. Our 1st trip was with a group of 16 people last two trips were just my Husband and I . I recommend making a reservation as this is a popular place. Excellent cocktails, yummy food ~~~HOWEVER~~~ I strongly suggest more vegetarian options.. Right now there are extremely limited options.

Over 1 hour to get our meal. Tables seated after we did and with same number of people or even larger tables were getting their food before we did. Very disappointed since we brought a friend for her birthday and they were visiting from Europe. Not worth the wait and still do not understand the reason for their delay in our order. Their excuse was that they were busy, but if you are busy it should be for everyone not just for our table. Very bad experience. Will not be returning to this restaurant.
