    The food was excellent, very flavourable. The server Josh and the overall service was fantastic, excellent timing. Very attentive when he needed to be. The hostess was excellent. Great place to enjoy a great meal. And the noise was just rightso that you could have a conversation without yelling.

    On Monday I reserved a high top for Thursday night for 5 people. When we arrived there were no high tops so they crammed us in a bar space for 4. What’s the point of getting a reservation?

    We ate dinner around 5pm before heading to Tsongas Arena. Our waitress was friendly and accommodating! This was a great and convenient spot to stop before heading to our event. We had the fish & chips which were very good as well as a house sangria that I would come back for any day!

    Last night we made a reservation for four people, 7:30. When we arrived the place was packed. The very friendly hostesses were killing it getting people seated and clearing newly emptied tables. We were seated in a few minutes. We were greeted by our server and placed our orders. Food arrived hot and delicious. If I had one critique it’s the music. It is loud. Very loud. The four of us felt like we were at a wedding. Had to strain a little to hear eachother. Clean, friendly staff and delicious food. Great Saturday night out.

    Our server was OUTSTANDING! So attentive and careful with our food allergies. BRAVO The food was good but not as fresh as I would have expected. My Salad was wilted, and the squash was cold and tough/rubbery - definitely not freshly cooked. The APPS were the best part of the meal - especially the brussels sprouts. We had to use our phone lights to see the menu - lights were a little too dim...but for ambiance without needing to see the menu, it was fine. The music was too LOUD when we all first arrived - I could not even hear the person seated beside me. After about an hour or so, it was lowered enough to have a conversation without yelling. I think this is a good spot for drinks and apps. Maybe not dinner....

    We went for brunch. Ambience is nice. The food was mid. Cold fries, uninspired Monte Cristo. Slow service even though there were not busy. Had to ask for condiments a couple of times as well as a spoon for the yogurt bowl before we got them. Asked for sriracha but got hot honey. Not sure I'd go back for brunch.

    We ordered drinks and an app to start. We were promptly given water but it took a few minutes for drinks. When the server delivered our drinks she asked if we wanted to put in our meal order or wait. We should have waited because our app took a long time to come out. About a minute after our app was delivered, our meals arrived. So in that case, we could have done without it. Regardless, all the food was delicious. Drinks were great. Server was friendly and attentive. Overall great experience.

    Four grandparents, two parents and a preschooler enjoyed lunch on Friday, December 22. Those in our party have very diverse taste. Everyone was happy with their selections. Our granddaugter has peanut allergies. Our server was very attentive to this concern. The children's placemat and crayons kept her busy, and the adults were able to enjoy lunch. This is a busy location. You should be prepared for a high noise level. The covered outdoor offers a terrific shady spot to catch up with friends or enjoy a date in the summer.

    We asked for separate bills but we were refused. We were told that parties of 10 or more required only one bill. The manager came and offered only for us to call headquarters and not make a decision. Our party of 10 left without ordering any food. Everyone in our group was very unhappy and we will not have lunch at Tavern in the Square again. I made my reservation online and I wasn't told about any one bill policy

    Such a disappointment. Ordered the salmon bowl and 4 out of the 7 small pieces of salmon were burned and consisted of no salmon- it was just crispy skin. The food took over 30 minutes and the waitress forgot my drink. We have been here many times but will now find somewhere else to go

    Took awhile before we were acknowledged by the waitress and this was only after we asked the bus boy if there was wait staff assigned to this nearly empty section, so there was some annoyance on our part when she walked over and didn't acknowledge the wait.

    Waiting 50 minutes for a table on Friday, enduring Emily C's constant confusion with our order, and an hour-long wait for food made it an overall unpleasant visit. To top it off, our waitress displayed a consistently rude attitude and even rolled her eyes when we settled the bill, leaving us thoroughly dissatisfied.
