Wait staff was great and made some good recommendations. Nice atmosphere where you could have a conversation around the table. I was pleasantly surprised the sushi was great!

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!

Had a wonderful time with our friend. It was his first time there and he was so impressed that he will be coming back.
We have always had a great service and food...and really enjoy the outdoor seating during the summer.

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.

Arrived at 5PM. Parking lot was already full so had to park in a neighboring office lot. Lovely restaurant. Extensive menu. Pricey. Kung Lao was decent. The Riesling wine was not. The roar of the after-work crowd in the bar area drifted to the dining room to make conversation difficult. Service was efficient and friendly. Because there are so many other restaurants in the area that beckon me to return, I probably would not go back to Tavern23 ~ except perhaps to try lunch or sit out on the patio when the weather is warmer.

Everything was fried! The stir fry I had didn't say on the menu that the chicken in my dish was battered and fried before being put into an oily and very sweet sauce.

Tavern23 has really upped their game. I didn’t care for it when it first opened, but it is much better now. We enjoyed our dinner and our server Emily was fantastic.

Had a reservation at 5:30, our waitress didn’t show up until 35-40 minutes after we were seated to finally get our drinks, then waited another 15-20 minutes to get our appetizer order in, then an additional 10 minutes to get our entree’s ordered. Very poor service but the food was good. Would not recommend this place to anyone

Great salmon salad. We sat outside, 7 of us, and enjoyed the view of the pond, the great weather and conversation. Only complaint, the server balked when we asked him to split the bill, said he could but it would take time, he obviously didn't want to. Perhaps we should have mentioned that at the beginning. Doesn't seem to be a problem elsewhere.

We sat out on the patio so it could be a bit more quiet than inside. Overlooking centennial Lakes was very pleasant. Our waiter was good, although my pizza wasn’t piping hot and my margarita wasn’t one of the best. All in all it was a nice place to have a date.

I had the salmon salad. It was a bit overcooked so hard to cut through. I have had this before and it was much better the first time. It is loud at lunchtime so hard to hear everyone at my table.

My first visit was very pleasurable. Greeted nicely. Server was friendly. Menu was good but there were no really 'wow' items that would set the restaurant apart from similar restaurants. Still a solid 4 star.

Not our normal experience at Tavern23. The beer taps were messed up and the server didn’t believe us. Then he charged us for the incorrect beer when I asked for a different one. Of course, the food was great.

The service and food were very good. The only reason for the one star down was their drinks were awful. Cherry cough syrup mixed with rubbing alcohol. Food and desert made up for it. Their outdoor area was very nice too.

We went for brunch for my husband’s birthday and it was the best experience we could imagine. We sat outside and there was no one near us. We got the bottomless mimosas and were amazed at how respectful the server was. Alfonso was quick to replace out mimosas before we finished each drink and made sure my husband enjoyed his birthday treat. It was such a fun experience, we felt comfortable and had the best food we could imagine. We had the Breakfast Burrito and the Madame Sandwich. Both were very large portions and very delicious! We will be coming back very soon!

They did not honor a request for outdoor seating so we took a table for 4 people and added another EMPTY table outside- a reservation with a special request is to be honored. Service was adequate food good. We were good customers spending $$$ and it is unacceptable that the original request was ignored.
