There's a wide selection to choose from on the menu. They also have a proprietary drink menu. Great place for any event. Bring the whole family.

Had a birthday lunch with a friend. We shared the French dip sandwich and it was very tasty. In addition one of us had the French Onion Soup with looked wonderful and my companions said it was very good. When asked if I could have fruit while he had the soup she said no but you had a nice side salad. The champaign vinegar dressing was excellent and her recommendation perfect. Thank you.
Also got a cup of a yummy banana cream pie.

THe only thing I will mention is that I had noted it was a birthday and no one did anything or recognized it. Don't know if host didn't tell our server Connor or if he forgot or you don't do anything to celebrate birthdays.

The menu has a lot of variety and it's all good. I tried the calamari, which I don't usually eat, but I was with a group and we had it as an appetizer. It had a spicy chili sauce on it and it was delicious! I had the maui tacos and they were fantastic. I've been to Tavern 23 many times and always leave happy. Good food and service.

We visited Tavern23 for lunch and was glad we made a reservation and it was packed. We ordered a couple of appetizers, ahi tuna, and crab cakes. They were fresh and tasted great. Ordered flatbread for entree and it was great..... Highly recommend

Food was very good. I took the recommendation from our server on the salmon salad and it was excellent. The server was very attentive, professional and pleasant. Atmosphere was good for a sports bar - casual but nice. Noise level was a little loud at times but we could still converse just fine. All in all a very pleasant experience. Will likely frequent again.

Food was excellent...disappointed with our service. As soon as some of us were done eating they started clearing the table even though others were still eating. I don’t think it’s polite to clear dishes when others are still eating. I mentioned this to our waitress and she said she never heard of such a thing! She seemed very rude to us after that!! Regardless....what happened to the premise that the customer is always right....

Aimee, our server was excellent - ever present but not intrusive. Each of us was very pleased with the lunch choices we made. The Maui tacos were tasty, salmon salad was very good, corn chowder was so very good. We will return for lunch soon!
Of late, we have only come for breakfast. The lunch choices were so good. the only negative is the noise level - it is hard to hear our fellow diners!

The waitress put in an order for a pizza versus the flatbread we ordered. It looked good and tasted great so we didn't call it to her attention

Sit by the windows & look out into the Centennial Lakes area. Pizza was very good & the Calamari zesty good. Nachos were good to but need more cheese.

Food and service was great! We had a 6:15pm reservation on a Saturday night. We were seated right away and our server was there quickly to get our drink orders, which were served fairly quickly. Our food orders came so fast, we all were so surprised and hardly had time for socializing beforehand.

The only bad thing was that was too loud for any real conversation, so we basically ate, paid the bill, and left.

Nice enough place but not the best dining experience if you actually want to talk.

We’ve been to Tavern 23 several times but this was not one of our better experiences. The steak that was ordered medium-well was served close to rare and even after sending it back, one side was still very pink. Plus, it made it impossible to eat together since the other order would have been cold if we waited. These things happen, but there was zero attempt to accommodate or even apologize for the inconvenience (nothing was comped, no apology desert, etc.). Disappointed.

Enjoyed our dinner at Tavern23. Service was excellent and friendly. Nice variety on the menu. Reasonable prices with a little more upscale atmosphere. We had not been there for dinner (only lunch) and will plan on returning.

Please allow people who come for happy hour to sit outside the bar area, especially when there is not enough seating. The noise level is also really high and could definitely be toned down.

Ordered the Mongolian Beef which was absolutely delicious! As was the salsa and guac we had for an app. This will now be one of our "go to" places and a "go to" entree!

Very good food, and the service is even better. However, and most disappointingly, one cannot order happy hour items outside of the bar, even when the bar is full and no seating is available there. The manager said that they are unable to accommodate this situation due to owner's policy. Disappointing.

Great food and ambiance! Perfect for a date night. We had the calamari as our app, and the salmon and halibut entrees and everything was fantastic. Our cocktails were perfect. Service started off great, but dropped off, leaving us to wait for the check, which was unfortunate. Overall though, very happy and will be back.
