Food was very good for decent prices; especially recommend the guacamole - fabulous stuff!! Only downside is it is a bit noisy (sports-bar environment) and that I arrived ahead of the rest of my party of 5 and when I was sitting alone I got no-one serving me, asking me for a drink order or anything.

Wife and I both had the New York Strip and it was delicious. Perfectly cooked and seasoned, and the sautéed vegetables we chose as a side were also perfectly done.

Great cheese curds and excellent service. Lou’s bolognese was average at best. Too bad the waitress recommended it 😕

Garlic bread and chips/salsa apps were awesome! I was a little disappointed in the Pad Thai, it seemed like it should've had more peanut flavor, but the Kung Pao Chicken & Orange Peel Chicken that my family had were really good.

Went for a happy hour with my team from work and it turned into dinner. We had wonderful service, everyone liked their food, and we had a great time. It is definitely loud in the bar area during happy hour, so if you want to have quiet conversation, this isn't the place :)

No one greeted us at host stand for several minutes
Trash in entrance
Table in bar area we wanted to sit at was covered in spilled food
Our order was wrong and had to be sent back- corrected promptly
Calamari was cold
Our waiter was also the bartender and he did a great job - not a criticism of him he held down the fort and was terrific
Clearly understaffed

Will attend again. Staff sitting people need work. I was seated at a table and although I noted the name of the individual I was waiting for they seated my party on the other side of the restaurant. We lost valuable time for our meeting. This has happened a number of times at the restaurant.

The place is nice, the menu has variety. But everything we ordered, besides the avocado egg rolls, was horrendous. I understand everyone has a different pallet. But that was too many items ordered and failed. The worst was the pad Thai. It’s like someone is actually trying to tarnish the reputation of this dish. Quite disrespectful.

Food was good, general staff was friendly but our waitress at times seemed to be inconvenienced by us. Something simple as asking for another cup of salsa she couldn’t bring until the rest of the food was brought out 15-20 min later. Everyone else was super sweet

This is my third visit to Tavern 23, and second for dinner. I have noted how little traffic there is in the main dining room, but the bar area is usually busy. The food choices are quite broad, but there is nothing this place does great. Some guests had the stir-fry/wok options, and the Pad Thai with chicken was average at best - lacked taste, and way too much noodles. The Kung Pao Chicken was well-liked, and had enough rice and chicken with vegetables to make it enjoyable. The chicken Stromboli was surprising well done. Could have used more veggies in it, but overall a good choice. The drinks were good, and our server was attentive. But just not the greatest food, simply average as to taste.

My husband and I went for dinner. I had a reuben and he had the Nanne special meat sauce pasta. His was okay, not great, but he seemed to like it okay. I ordered a reuben because I thought how can you screw up a reuben, right? The meat was so full of fat I could not chew it. Seriously, I had to remove meat from my mouth because I could not chew through it. I have never had such bad corned beef in my life and not ever in a reuben like that. The fries were okay, not very hot. The server was attentive and did a good job, but that reuben....

My Partner and I arrived at 630 and were seated immediately for a 645 reservation. The waitress was at the table with in less than a minute and she was excellent. That is where it ended as to what went right. We ordered beverages and eventually ordered food. My Partner is an well know exec chef so he take into consideration everything. We both ordered different entrees I had a stir fry and my partner has pasta. Both dishes were horrible. As the partner said the stir fry was served with a bunch of lumpy white rice that was over cooked and the flavor was horrible. His pasta was dry and the tomato sauce as he said "I'm sure came from Target" It was billed as homemade it was not. The place had a nice ambience to it but they need great improvement on their food. I will not go back

It was obviously Homecoming at several nearby schools and there were several large parties of teenagers. The staff was great and didn't miss a beat. Despite the large parties, the service was very fast. Great job!

Food and service were good but the noise level, both crowd and music, made it hard to have a conversation and enjoy the food. We requested seating away from the bar area but despite having a reservation, they were unable to accommodate us. Probably won't be back on a weekend night.
