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.

It was a fun place. It was our first time there. The food was good. I wasn't overly impressed with anything to be honest. Don't know if I'd go back.

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.

Tavern23 is very easy to get to with ample parking. We were seated right on time in a comfortable booth. The decor is unique and comfortable. The menu is odd. Lots of everything, without a specific specialty. I had the Maui tacos which was blackened catfish.... not really sure what made it Maui . Ordered the calamari app, and was very pleased with it my $10.00 specialty drink was over priced the the value/quantity it was.

The tavern 23 was really good! I had a reservation for 10am right when they opened and they let me come in 5 minutes early to set up for my team meeting. The service was really good, they understood that we were having a meeting and didn't interrupt often, but came around enough to see if we were ready to order and check on everything else at the table.
They have a guy who walks around filling the water cups, my cup was never empty, which is amazing cause I love water and drink a lot. When we got our food it all came out exactly the way we asked for it, no issues, and it was amazing, everyone loved it. We had an assortment of breakfast and lunch foods and I can tell you that my New York egg sandwich with pastrami was fabulous! I will be going back again to try lunch and or dinner. I was also very impressed with how clean, the restaurant was as well as how classy, and peaceful it was, they put us in the corner and we didnt even notice people filling the tables around us.
