Very flavorful and unique menu items. We split the Fried Chicken poutine. It was tasty but the cheese curds weren't really melted.
My husband got a couple sushi rolls and I was torn between the chorizo meatloaf or the Mongolian Beef. The beef with the sticky rice did not disappoint nor did his rolls.
Love the food!
Good food; reasonably priced wine and comfortable table and surroundings
Great food and staff. Our servers were energetic and knowledgeable.
I had a filet steak and a little disappointed in bread offering. The waitress said they only had garlic bread, which was good, but would have preferred something different.
Everything was great BUT the waitress - I was so surprised because I have been here many times. We sat down and almost immediately - no water served yet - she asked us what we wanted to drink. Then - about 5 min. after we got our drinks - she asked us what we wanted to order. We said we would like to visit awhile - then a few minutes later she asked us again - what do you want to order - she pressed us - said we only had so much time to be there - OMG - no one told us we had a specific time frame to be there. I was not told any time frame when I made online reservations OR when I checked in OR when I was seated. I was SHOCKED that I felt I had to hurry up and get out!
I have never had this kind of pressure at this restaurant before. NOT FUN!
We were disappointed in the service. After we were seated the waiter came to spray down the table to wipe it off and luckily my mask was still on as I could feel it spray against my face.
We ordered sushi and martinis. It didn’t seem like there was any alcohol in the martini and they were $16 each. The waiter was leaving for the day and kept asking if he could get the check to us. We said we weren’t done yet we may be ordering other food. He kept asking so we finally said okay. He then watched us and came again to ask us to sign it so he could get his tip and go home. We signed it and left to go to Hazelwood Food & Drink in Bloomington.
We have no reason to go back to Tavern23.
Front half of restaurant became crowded by 12:30pm.
Overall nice everyday eating spot
Always a great place to dine... food and atmosphere!!
We sat on the patio on a Saturday evening, overlooking the beautiful Centennial Lakes Park pond. Food was very good, service was great, the ambience excellent. Afterwards, my wife and I took a walk around the perimeter of the pond, which was a great capper to the night.
Always great food & service!
Beautiful outside dining, excellent service and lunch!
On Open Table they show a breakfast menu.
They are still open at 10A, but don’t offer that menu. Hope they take it down.
What they offered was very good, just had a craving for their pancakes which they did not offer.
Great food, reasonably priced with an awesome patio overlooking Centennial Lake and Park!
Wonderful atmosphere and great food. Beautiful seating around the lake.
We were on the patio. Nice view of lake. Jose was attentive. Half sandwich was large and cup of tomato basil soup was delicious
I had the Pad Thai and it was very good. We also tried the sushi. Also very good
Patio is fantastic!
Great Happy Hour!
Love the outside patio. Our waiter seemed a bit rushed but got the job done. Kinda slammed things on our table.
Loved the patio. Service was just right. Good chicken enchiladas.
Probably a good place for pizza and happy hour drinks. Sushi was warm and only about half of it tasted fresh. They also put wasabi on my sashimi. I got the prime rib and it was over cooked on the ends. The server was very friendly and it had a good ambience for the most part. But probably wouldn’t go again for a “fine” dining experience
WE MET A FREIND AT TAVERN 23 AND WE WERE RECEIVED WITH A SMILE, FRIENDLY STAFF, GOOD FOOD AND FELT SAFE!
Great service. Good social distancing and wearing of masks.
The outside patio is the best in the Twin Cities. I go there often.
Great food with big portions and a great drink menu. It was great!
We both enjoyed an excellent meal. Welcome treat after COVID hibernation!
They were very well separated in the dining area, but not so much in the bar, which was sooooo noisy!
They had put up barriers between the booths that really helped with noise and Covid protection.
The service was excellent and my chicken Enchilada was delicious. Their patio is really nice.
Great attentive staff, wonderful menu selection and great food
We ended up eating inside because patio was so loud during happy hour. We had a reservation but could not specify patio and so there was an hour wait.
Thx. Great patio and Hh
The outside patio is beautiful and very safe during these pandemic days. We come here often.
Had to wait a little for an outside table because it's 1st come, but great service and food. Brought some friends there for the first time. They loved it as well. We will definitely be back.
Been to Tavern 23 two times now. Food always good, hot and quick. Wait staff very friendly.
Fantastic chicken caesar pizza!
I wish I could remember our server’s name because she was absolutely awesome. I was there with friends for dinner and they can be quite lively. She took them in stride and was cheerful the whole time. We will be back again soon.
While we requested patio dining, there was a wait, so we ate inside at a booth that felt socially distanced. Food is consistently good. Service was very good. Will come back!
The pesto pasta was delicious, I would come back just for that.
Wasn’t salty which I like .
