There was good table spacing and all were clearly adhering to distancing and cleanliness regulations. The menu was varied and all dishes were cooked to perfection.
Calamari was tender and tasty. I had chicken enchiladas and they were tasty and spicy - well balanced and not "Minnesota spicy" but rather more like good Mexican. Salmon was cooked well and topped with a tasty preparation and the French dip was piled high with tender beef. Wine and cocktail selections topped off the meal. Our server was attentive and personable despite the busy evening.

Our server(Mishi) was outstanding and checked back with us a couple times to see if we needed anything else. Very quiet because of the pandemic.

Enjoyed the privacy of the booth and the service. Disappointed the Governor Walz is shutting down the restaurants for inside service.

It took a while for the server to come to our table so I called the manager and she was very understanding. She apologized and gave my husband and I free cup of soup. Now THAT is good service. The food ends up being pretty good too, good value for the price. Will definitely be back!

Went for lunch on the patio, I had the salmon salad - one of the best salads I've ever had! It's simple but the salad dressing & the crunchy coated salmon bring it all together - delicious!!

Food was mediocre. Asked for a cheese substitute on a burger that was not done. Service was fine at first then it was as if we were on a different island. Never checked on us after the food delivered to table till check was presented. Music was rather loud for our liking.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
