Terrible. Couldn’t accommodate our reservation. When they did bring us a table set up from the back (literally) the waiter said he would do his best to try to find water glasses. The place was completely overrun and clearly had no help. We ended up leaving before our drinks ever came. Disappointing.

Unfortunately the night we went, they only had 3 people in the kitchen so, although we ordered pretty quickly after being sat, our food still hadn't come out after an hour and 30 minutes. After we asked our poor server who was trying her best, she said they hadn't even started it. We ended up cancelling our order and leaving hungry.

They put us outside, inside looked good. Wait staff is hurting, manager said 3 of 75 ppl came back. Felt for the staff but service was pretty bad.

Waited 2 hours for our meal and the burgers were still undercooked. To make up for it they comped an ice tea. Several other tables had a similar experience and when they complained the manager became agitated

Service was slow in the beginning, yet the server was apologetic and kind. Food was yummy, yet unexpectedly pricey.

It's a nice enough pub. Service was good considering it was packed solid. I really didn't like having to climb up to get to the banquet. Steak sandwich was very good - but the fries were disgusting. Totally inedible. Somehow the main floor bathroom got locked and I had to ask five waitstaff to get it unlocked as I have knee problems and couldn't do the stairs to the downstairs rest rooms. And $14 for an Irish Coffee is just crazy.

The macaroni and cheese was delicious. We wanted outside but it wasn’t heated so we came in. It wasn’t jammed but still quite noisy. I’d go back.

Thanksgiving flavors were good but the food could have been served hotter. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The table was right by a draught which was unfortunate for this time of year.

Very average in all ways. I had the steak sandwich which I really did not love. My dining partner had the pork chops which were much much better… And the bang bang cauliflower was very good… I wouldn’t rush to come back here as I found it very average in all ways . This place will do in a pinch but don’t rush to get there

We had to wait 30 mins to be seated, so I don’t feel like te reservation was honored. Food and drinks were great, and staff friendly, but the wait for the table defeats the purpose of making a reservation jn the first place, and impact the experience.

The entrance door handle was broken the day we walked in. The bathrooms need renovation.

But I must say that the food is very good and they have very good service. The handhelds were good, and yummy fries.

Our family of six met for lunch in the outdoor space. The Bridge & Tunnel tots were a major hit. Menu needs a few more gluten free options.

The courtyard is amazing for outdoor dining and when we went on the early side, we had it to ourselves. Portions remain amazing and despite being out of sight due to being outdoors, service was A+ I think the happy hour menu is expanded? Or new to me, but a great range of options

Seated promptly outside. Host was attentive ... he saw my note that we wanted to sit outside but iphone Opentable wouldn't let me do it. Waited quite a while for our food. Shishito peppers were too salty and cold, french fries were cold, mussels were tasty, but too many onions. Not sure if we would go back.

Both the manager and our server were first rate. They were friendly and welcoming. The food was much tastier than the word "tavern" might suggest. I'd love to go back!

It was super noisy, and the table is weirdly wide, so I was far apart from my companion and we couldn't really hear each other. The food was okay - too salty though. I appreciated the references to Croton reservoir history.

Nice place. Attentive but not pushy staff. Drinks were very good. House sangria was excellent. Shishido peppers - yummy. Salads were large and filling. Large enough and spaced out so it felt very safe - not right on top of each other. Nice beer selection.
