    Terrible experience. The waiter tried to be a comedian. And failed badly. My medium rare burger (clearly documented on the receipt) was cooked well done. The server, Sean A, never checked on us to check on the food. My drink was finished, and I didn’t wait for “Sean A” and finished my dry, overcooked burger before he ever checked in on us. A little late. So I had a dry, overcooked burger with no drink only to have “Sean A” come over to say I wouldn’t have my tires slashed because it wasn’t our fault. Pathetic service. I will let everyone know. Wow.

    Watched uconn woman’s basketball game and boy, was the entire restaurant alive with cheering! Food was delicious & service excellent but it was a bit loud and the ambience definitely what you’d expect of a huge, crowded pub.

    Everything was great, including service but felt a little rushed towards the end. She came back a few times to see if we were ready. I think it might’ve been end of her shift.

    Every table feels like you’re sitting in the bar area, so if that’s what you like, you’ll like it here. We had issues with the tables they gave us for our reservation. First they gave us a high top when we specifically said “standard table” on the reservation. Then they tried to give us a table with a huge puddle under it (the hostess said “be careful there’s a lot of water” soooo WHY would you seat us here?! There were 10+ available tables at this point). After fighting for it we finally got a normal table. Decent food and our waitress was kind.

    There were four of us for dinner. Our first time to the restaurant. From beginning to end every staff member we encountered was engaging and friendly. Drink menu was fun and interesting. Food selection was diverse. Fried pickle chips were delicious as was the buffalo cauliflower. Quinoa bowl was delicious. Definitely will be coming back.

    Expensive for small portions; disappointing that for my $24 ahi tuna bowl they weren’t willing to substitute the kimchi and pickled veggies for some sweet potato?! Or anything? Even our waiter seemed embarrassed…his service was friendly though, and the other three meals were tasty; pizza, steak tips

    Busy sports bar , actively loud while big game was on. But the food surprised me with how Delicious it alllll was! Service was great with Haley, food came out fast and as ordered. Broccoli could have been a little greener and fresher. Other than that we would definitely go back when in the neighborhood!

    Made a reservation, arrived on time, then waited 20 minutes to be seated. Waitress brought my husband the wrong beer and me the wrong sandwich. I pointed it out to her on the bill and she said, "Well, at least it is $1 cheaper, so.." and walked away. The problem is that I didn't get what I ordered and didn't like what she brought! I didn't think walking away was a good way to resolve her mistake and my dissatisfaction.

    Awesome Place. tons of TVs. Super loud and busy. Service was a little slow, but it was NFL playoffs so kind of understand. They messed up my wife’s salad order, but besides that we got everything we asked for. Food is freaking amazing everything we had was better than the next. Highly recommended for a sports bar with atmosphere and energy.

    Love Tavern and this meal did not disappoint. I had asked for the booth to watch the football game and they set it up perfectly for us. Had the amazing bang bang broccoli, definitely a favorite...just enough spice. My son had the cheese pizza and it was HUGE...could have ordered it as an adult and been happy...actually had my friend order the pizza for herself cause the kids one was sooo good. We also had the quinoa bowl which was very very good...hearty with good taste and very filling. Lastly, had the black old fashioned and was a unique twist on the classic. Was very good and would order it again. Only negative, I was surprised they didn't have the volume on for the NFL game. I know it wasn't a local team and they have played the sound for UCON basketball but being the NFL playoffs and only one game on, I was surprised they didn't use the sound. Other than that, I will be back, one of my favorite spots for good food, good drinks and great service.

    We've been here numerous times. We always enjoy ourselves. The buffalo cauliflower is amazing! I got something new tonight. It was the chopped Greek salad with grilled chicken. I should have asked for no tomatoes. I was thinking I'd just pick them out. I imagined grape tomatoes in it. But they were tiny pieces chopped into the salad so I couldn't pick them out. But it was a descent flavor. Everyone else at the table very much enjoyed their dinner. Our waiter was very attentive and did a great job.

    This is a superior sports bar. A large location, part of a chain, Tavern in the Square West Hartford has many large screens, an extensive drink menu, high tops, booths, and a large bar. We asked to be seated so we could see the Packers-Buccaneers game (not local) and we were led to a table with a direct view following an Open Table reservation. The steak tips and fish & chips were delicious and when the coffee was lukewarm warm, the waitress immediately replaced it. Well done!
