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.

We had reservations which on a busy Saturday night doesn't always make a difference, but we were seated right away. The waitress we had was great at anticipating exactly when we wanted to order after visiting over a cocktail. Both of us remarked that our Stir Fry's were outstanding and we would order them again. We just wish restaurants were a little less open for intimacy and less noise.

The calamari was rubbery. The herb and garlic “encrusted” prime rib had no crust or seasoning flavor. Guess I didn’t understand the description?

Went for a bolognese fix - and we got it in spades!! The dish was tasty and a nice portion, too. I've heard their Reuben is outstanding so want to get back for that. Very nice ambience and and had lovely service people. Not one thing to complain about!

Our server was excellent from the time we first sat down until we left. Always checking on us to make of there was anything we need. She had a great sense of humor. She was helpful in discussing ingredients and spices for those that had a sensitive palette. She was one of best servers I have seen in a long time as I go out to eateries several times a week.

Quick decision to stop by and meet up with relatives. Always easy to get there from most anywhere and the vibe is warm and inviting! Excellent service, a diverse menu and excellent food. We each went with something different. Sister had the pepperoni pizza which had a nice tangy sauce and plenty of cheese and meat! I had the French Onion soup and a house salad and my niece had a great sushi roll which she loved.

I have been here for many lunch meetings and just because dinners. Have never been disappointed and plan to continue to keep Tavern23 at the top of the list.
