Loved the ambiance! The French Onion soup was the best I ever had. The sushi was good and our ice tea glasses were never empty! Service was great and our server even brought a dessert for each of us for my girlfriends birthday ! Varied menu and can’t wait to return to try other menu items.

First time I have been to Tavern 23. I was with someone who had been there when it was Nanne's and he said the food is pretty much the same, but at a much better price point.

I apparently dropped my credit card after paying and didn't realize it until a couple hours later. They tracked it down and called later that evening to tell me they had found it.

Thank you!

Our waitress was just delightful - so friendly! We went for Sunday brunch and had the New Yorker sandwich and the Denver omelet. Food was tasty and a good portion size. Try the bloody mary!

We won't be back. My husband said it was the worst Salmon he ever had in his entire life, crispy hard with a terrible sauce. I sent my Pad Thai back. It was beyond spicy. I had given some to my table mate who loves spicy food and it was even too spicy for her. Not much on the menu if you are Vegan. The margarita pizza was good (said my mom). Edamame was too spicy. Our server never came to refill drinks, or ask how everything was. He was unknowledgable about the menu and had zero customer service skills. He was very unpleasant which also affects a dining experience. Plopped down our check without asking if we wanted dessert. That wasn't a big deal as we didn't, but that's not how it should be. The restaurant has a fun and lively atmosphere. However our whole experience was truly terrible.

Service was great and the food was very good except the French Fries were not good at all. The menu has a great selection of items for all different tastes. Work on getting those French Fries better and not so soggy...

We came here the other night for a light dinner. The Asian lettuce wraps that I had were excellent. My husband had the carne asada tacos and they were just average. Street corn side dish wasn't good. Our waitress was very nice and efficient but the woman who brought us our bar drinks, definitely had attitude. She rolled her eyes at us when we asked which beer was which as we couldn't understand what she was asking us when she brought the beers over. Between the noise in the restaurant and the masks, it was hard to hear her. No need for eye rolling.

Food and outside atmosphere was good. Service was not at all good. Server never checked back to see how things were. We needed condiments and were never able to get them. I tried to flag him down a couple of times, but to no avail.

Beautiful April Saturday lunch on the patio. Portions were a bit small bit the food was good, ambience lovely and the service was wonderful. Creme Brûlée with three types of fresh berries was good. We were hoping for more keto options but maybe dinner will offer such.

My husband had the Kung Pao and he liked it. I had the walnut-crusted walleye. Based on the menu description I was not expecting it to have sauce on it. The kale and cashew salad was more like a coleslaw, with 5% kale. I was not a fan.

I absolutely love Tavern23 and am so glad they have made it through all the restrictions this past year. Their brunch is fantastic and they are one of the few places left that offers bottomless mimosas ($12). My friend always gets the Smoked Salmon Scramble and I usually get the Croque Madame Sandwich (and they never give me trouble about asking for scrambled eggs vs the fried egg!). They offer brunch, lunch, dinner, and a wide variety of menu items - all delicious and at affordable prices. Their cocktails are also great and they are located right by Centennial Park so it's a great date location if you want to take a walk before or after as well. GO! :)

Great COVID protocol but always keep the customers' comfort zone in mind. It's possible to provide safety and confidence without making it seem restrictive.
