Our server was great! Very attentive, but not obnoxious. He said he was only on the job 3 weeks but he was excellent at serving and attending to our needs. Think we'd go back and ask for him to serve us again!

Food was ok however the experience was ruined by a pompous, rude and arrogant host who unfortunately happens to be one of the owners so complaints are worthless and his awful service permeates to the rest of the employees. Unfortunately the poor bus boys go out of their way to help but this not worth money or time. There are many restaurants in Chicago with excellent food and service so DO NOT waste your time and money here. Never coming back.

Food was decent. The tuna taco appetizer was excellent and the fish and chips entree was huge. Service started off good but once the appetizer came, we didn't see our waitress again until we were finished. (The entrees were served by another waiter.)

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. However, we had reservations and they seated us in the bar. It was very loud, making it difficult to hear our own conversation. I would have appreciated it if they had asked us upon reservation if we would prefer the dining area.

The service was poor but the waiter acknowledged it when he brought the check. We ordered a bottle of wine when dinner was served and it came when we were finished with our entrees so we turned it away. Food was excellent as always. The manager did offer us complimentary wine glasses for the situation which was nice but we were finished.

I was on a business lunch or would have said something. My chicken on my salad was sooooo dry. Hard to eat and for the cost it wasn't worth it for sure! We were in the lower level looks like the rooftop is where it's at....also service was awesome.

I guess that not every batter hits 1.000. I primarily frequent Tavern for business lunch meetings (and for that it is excellent), so with an open reservation slot on a Saturday night with my family, decided to take them there. It was an excellent night and was hoping to eat outside. I can say the amount of attention I get in shorts and a polo varies greatly when I have a business suit on. We were about 10 minutes early for the reservation. Seeing an open table outside and with no one waiting at the host stand, the host rather smarmily told me that it would be a 20 minute additional wait. No here is a great pet peeve for me (as some previous reviews would hint at). If I have a reservation and can see multiple open tables available, there should be no wait. Multiple open tables existed on the window as well as the table outside. A 4-5 star review would include the instance where the host sensing I wanted outside or at least a view, would open it up. Well, that didn't happen. And BTW, when I say family, my "kids" are 18, 16, and 14, not rug rats. So shuffled to our table, I kept track of the table outside, and yep, it was never filled. Any restaurant can have a bad day and service this evening was relatively inattentive and slow. When the food came, it was as good as always, but had to ask for bread, waited a bit long for drinks, etc. Waiter was very nice, which saves it from being less than "Fair." Note to all restaurants, if your visit results in nicknaming the host "Johnny D-Bag," that's awfully hard to recover. He was also smarmy to my daughter when asking where the restrooms were. The second host was much nicer on our way out. So, is it a bad day--I think so. Would I bring family here again (my daughter enjoyed her other visit and pushing for it) on the spur of the moment? Nope. Would I have another business lunch here? Sure, if someone else is paying. For the price point and category of restaurant, while the kitchen can have a bad day, service can never.

Al fresco was great! We had appetizers and had a great time!
Only don't try the outdoor patio upstairs! The line was very long and the pretentious press at the door would not give a wait time. Imagine consumers with resources to choose where to dine being herded into place without knowing when or whether they would enjoy what they selected. Be a bir more considerate and people will give you a second chance.

I frequently find myself lunching at tavern. I try to avoid but I'm often invited by business associates. Consistently poor service. On this occasion, they forgot a major ingredient in my meal and I wasn't able to eat until my dining companion was pretty much finished. The staff apologized 3 times while I was waiting, but still charged me full price. Always unnecessary interruptions during important conversation moments. Once they dropped off the check twice after we already paid (which caused a very awkward moment). Once, the servers asked 3 times if my colleague wanted a takeaway box (yes every time) and then someone took her plate away and she never received the box. It's almost worth going to see what they will mess up

We showed up early for a 730pm reservation on the Saturday of Bike the Drive weekend and were seated right away. The people at the hostess stand were very pleasant. We ordered an appetizer (tuna tacos) and a salad (lobster) that were both specials that evening and they were excellent. We split a burger for the main entrée and it was also very good. Wine list was decent and reasonably priced.

Very good anniversary dinner. We were seated on the roof and told the server we were going to take pictures on it, leaving our table. 2 different people cleared our table. They gave my date a new plate but I was left with my fries cleared off. That was the only
Bad thing. Other than that, great experience!

We tried the Tavern on restaurant week and were very impressed then. The food was choice. I had my first chicken liver pate short rib dinner with roasted potatoes there and have never found anything that equaled it's excellence anywhere else. The food was well prepared and delicious. We went back again and we're a little disappointed that that menu was gone. We decided to give it another try and discovered that the menu is now mediocre fast fat foods and not well prepare. Needless to say we won't be returning.

He always had a smile on his face and was dedicated to making sure that everything was taken care of and to our liking. The menu had plenty to choose from, especially for those of us who are gluten-free.

I have been to the Tavern several times. Food is always good. Service is typically good as well. This time the services was just - okay. I showed up late but was never asked if I wanted a drink - I was provided water that was room temperature at best but had to flag down the waiter to get a cold soda. Also - the place where we sat was a booth - I don't like a booth but was never asked if this was okay or if I wanted a table instead.

Our drinks didn't arrive until 45min after ordering and the food was another 1hr after that. Now, if it had been a packed restaurant this would be understandable, but it was barely 50% capacity. Our soup arrived before the bread - which was cold and hard.

If the slow service wasn't enough, we received cold food and my friend received the wrong order. Again, had we ordered harder meals - steaks, pasta, seafood, etc. - this would be understandable. But our orders were very simple, a Caesar salad, vegetarian burger, chili and fish tacos for the four of us.

It felt like we were forgotten about often. I don't usually write poor reviews and I'm usually very understanding of waitstaff, but all of these together made for a poor dining experience for my friends and I. Especially for the prices we paid.

The house sangria was different than any sangria I've ever had, with a touch of cinnamon in it, and it was delicious! You have to get the bread basket when you go, and if you like burgers, the steak burger will be an automatic hit! The environment is perfect and festive, and it's centrally located to lots of cool things in central Chicago! I'd definitely recommend to friends!
