Food was delicious and service was great. Too bad it was so empty due to covid. Great brussel sprouts (highly recommend) and lobster roll.

The hostess wait to be seated was a bit long and the music volume was too loud upstairs. This is the 3rd time the music has made conversing difficult.

But the food & our server more than made up for it.

We are having mild temps here in Chicago, thankfully, and were able to enjoy the roof top patio for dinner. It was a lovely evening with great food and wine. We really enjoyed ourselves. I feel badly for all the restaurants who can not serve inside their restaurants due to covid restrictions. However, it was great to see the patio was full (tables spaciously apart) on such a beautiful evening.

All I can say is everything here is excellent. Service and knowledge is above and beyond. Food is tremendous. Can't say enough about the quality. Drink choices are perfect.
The place itself has about 4 different atmospheres for whatever mood you're in.

Enjoyed Sunday brunch on the rooftop deck. Our waitress, Carmen, was amazing. Our food was excellent and the coffee hot and tasty. We really enjoyed ourselves. Can't wait to go back and try some other brunch items.

Steak Diane special came with mashed potatoes and was very tasty, but the portions were fairly small. Caesar salad was a bit disappointing because it had no shaved parm and dressing just so so. The Aperol Spritz cocktails (had 2) were fantastic! Just over $80 seems high to me without some left over to take home.

This was our second visit in two weeks. We sat at a rooftop table and were lucky to get Kathy as our wait person again. ALL the staff really pays attention to the guests whether it's the hostesses who greet you and show you to your table, the folks bussing and sanitizing the tables, and certainly the wait staff. Kudos to the kitchen and bar folks as well.

We sat at the bar to have some cocktails and share an app and sandwich. Bob the bartender was a lot of fun and makes one hell of an old fashioned. It was a great night out to watch a little Monday Night Football, covid style.

We have been several times and the food and service is always fantastic. Noise level was a bit higher than usual because it was during a Bears game. Otherwise noise is moderate.

I was concerned about the amount of people upstairs together and people standing at the bar not wearing masks and getting close to tables. We were moved to a safer space which was super accommodating of the manager but I was concerned that nobody was enforcing the rules. Workers were also not wearing masks over their nose which bothered me. Our second waitress was very attentive, sweet, and made the experience much better!

My first time at Tavern on Point was not what I expected. It is more of a bar than a restaurant and I was taken by surprise. Our server was very nice and the food was above average. Not sure if i would go back

Had Sunday brunch with some friends before the Bears' game. The food was fabulous, the service was prompt. Our waitress Paige was excellent. We enjoyed ourselves on the beautiful rooftop deck. Ramon is an amazingly attentive person. He was not our server but was in charge of the rooftop tables making sure they were clean and sanitized, dishes were cleared in a timely fashion, brought more water, to go containers, etc. His attention to detail is 5 star quality.

Our server was great, and even moved us to a better table upon request, as ours was originally in the corner under the harsh lights on the rooftop! The food was really good as well. My only complaint would be that the outdoor tables were definitely too close together for social distancing.

Our party of three dined on the rooftop on a perfectly gorgeous late afternoon. Kathy O was our server and she was excellent -- very attentive with a wonderful sense of humor. The food (filet sliders and build your own burgers) and ambiance were outstanding. Sadly, the weather is changing so we probably won't have another opportunity for rooftop dining any time soon, but we can always sit downstairs in the restaurant. Bravo, TOTP. Your restaurant is an Edison Park gem.
