We loved the time at the Tavern! Food was great, music wasn't load and we could easily talk between each other. Loved it there!

My partner and I grabbed a late lunch, sat at the high top table; service was friendly and quick. The food was very tasty. We have the guacamole starter, chicken bowl and fish tacos.

Did not enjoy the skillet breakfast. Asked for eggs medium and was told eggs could be over easy or well but not medium. The eggs came out extremely runny. The skillet was small with everything squished togeher (toast, fruit, potatoes and 3 eggs, too much in a small round dish.

The initial sitting was unnecessarily uncomfortable. We wanted a table safer in the outside that was empty and I found the waitstaff reaction unnecessarily rude rather than accommodating. The attitude waned as the evening went on and was pleasant enough but if I wasn’t with family it would’ve been embarrassing.

Manager Sal was wonderful. Our table had some gluten intolerance and corn intolerance. Sal came to our table asked pertinent questions and provided us with useful information. Our experience with him was fabulous.
Courtney our server , she too was amazing. She had personality, offered feedback when asked .
Looking forward to dining there again.

My cocktail was fantastic. It was called Talk Tiki to me. Our waiter was excellent. But the patio was crazy loud. Our food was ok. The general tso chicken was overly sweet. The fish tacos were skimpy. We’ll try them again. It’s usually better than it was tonight.

We had a great waiter and sat outside. Everything under their control was wonderful. It’s is right off a road so you get some noise from that, but not bad. Really enjoyed it.

Atmosphere was great to watch a football game and service was great. Food was good but cool fries and General Tso was dry, disappointed. would go again but might just stick to a burger.

Staff at entrance and at table accommodating and friendly. Noise level inside was atrocious and we had to scream at one another to be heard. Food excellent and portions were good. Recommend not coming for dinner; may be quieter at other times.

I was so pleasantly surprised that the outdoor seating had a solid roof over it! There was plenty of breeze as the sides are all open, but nice cover from mid afternoon showers. I ordered the kale salad and it was absolutely perfect. The kale was not tough and there were carrots and a little goat cheese in it. The greens seemed locally sourced as they were incredibly fresh. I didn't get my dressing on the side and the amount was spare which I really appreciated. My dining companion ordered the Greek salad with chicken and loved it. She asked for more dressing and it was promptly brought over. Perfect place for a nice lunch. Prompt polite service.

It was a drizzly night and we stayed dried on their covered patio. I have to say they didn’t seem to have very many servers, but they provided excellent service. Will definitely be going back.

Waitress was super nice, but felt rushed to leave so they could keep turning over the tables for more profit. Check was brought while we were still eating dinner.

Been to Tavern in Burlington, MA many times. Food is always good, service is excellent and the value is decent. Three diners all had good experiences. Got 2 "bowls" and one salad. Food was fresh and tasty. The only complaint, and it's a tiny one, is the bread that was served was microwaved and after sitting a minute became hard and chewy.
