Was a bit disappointed that the Sunday brunches are have been cut way back. I could only order my eggs either over easy or over hard. I like them over medium. Seems odd that you wouldn't accommodate this type request. The food value was small considering the price and non accommodation. Our server was TERRIFIC!!!!

Tavern in the Square got everything right. I was able to easily add a person to my reservation when I called them, and when I had to call them again because we were running late, they were happy to accommodate us. Our table was outside as requested, which was a nice patio with tables spread apart comfortably. Our server was Danny, who had a great personality while being very efficient, and everything that was ordered came accurately and quickly. All six of us were very happy with our food choices, and the lively atmosphere just made it a great night out. We'll be back!

Tha ern in the Square is consistently good food and wonderful service. We sat outside thus trip since the weather was perfect. There seemed.to be an unusual number of police cars and ambulances passing this trip but still a favorite place.to go.

With one exception, 5 of the 6 guests in my party were delighted with the food, service, & ambiance. The one exception was a member of the party who was very disappointed with her chicken salad croissant.

6 of us attended and we had a very good time. Our initial table was too tight for the 6 of us but Alex was very accommodating and found a better table. Food was good. Atmosphere was fine and we all enjoyed our time together.

Had a great time! Our bartender was great, chatty and personable. Food is consistent and we always get the bang bang broccoli. The nachos with chicken are good, wish there was more chicken on them at times. Strawberry margaritas are great ($10/each).

The restaurant was packed at noon on a Sunday. The noise level was deafening loud! For my 2 elderly companions 95 & 77 having a conversation was impossible. Additionally we only saw our waitress after being seated, after the food arrived & for the bill. We had to waive her down for drink refills & silverware. We asked for a table since one friend had a walker but were given a booth that was difficult to get into and out of. Will not soon return if at all.

A little pricey but food is really good and very fresh. Unfortunately the coffee is not strong. Have been there a few test and would go back again. Buffalo cauliflower is well worth having. Reservation recommended for weekends. Never gone weekdays so I don't know if you're likely to wait for a table

Excellent gluten free options. Booths separated by plexiglass - felt safe and helped buffer noise.

This is a favorite place for our group of friends to meet. We like its location and its choice of being inside or on the patio, which was wonderful during 2020 when dining out was more challenging. Service has always been attentive and warm, and we enjoy the bar menu and ordering almost exclusively appetizers to share: the nachos, chicken tenders, tater tots and mac 'n cheese were our most recent selection.

Been to Tavern in Burlington many times. Service was efficient and friendly. We had cocktails to start but no appetizers. Drinks came quickly and were exactly as ordered. Dinners were good: Buttermilk Chix sandwich was exactly as ordered and good. Fish and Chips were crunchy and cooked just right. The Beyond Burger was lukewarm and too salty. I'm not blaming Tavern for the burger since I've had Beyond burgers before and they are always too salty for my taste. That's on me for ordering it again. But, it should have come out hot. Fries were okay...not hot enough for me, but the rest of the table enjoyed them. I'll be back for sure...prices are good and most often food is terrific :)

We sat outside. There was a lot of neighborhood noise. Ambulances and traffic. It is to be expected as it is close to a hospital. We still had a great time. The patio was full.

Outside dining was nice, but constant medical sirens riding by to Lahey were distracting. Very limited menu, but what we got was good. Service was very good. If we went back, we would sit inside.

We had reservations and go there a little early. We were greeted and sat as soon as we walked in. Our server was over, drink orders taken and the night was great sitting outdoors. The server was very attentive but not too overbearing since it was the first time our group was together since Covid began...and we had a lot to catch up on Great experience overall!

Great food, service, ambiance. It was a little noisy, though--we ate outside on the patio (which is lovely) but the music was pretty loud given that we had a 5:45 pm reservation--prime time with kids ... don't really need music thumping that loud that early.

This restaurant was exceptional. Servers and food runners used gloves to deliver food and condiments to the table, masks on and table socially distanced.
Our reservation was sat when we arrived early and drink order taken right away.
Our food was running behind, management came to apologize which was more than necessary.
Loved the outside seating and food was SO good!
We decided we will make this one of our go to dinner spots.
