Steak
Reservations are for the Formal Steakhouse Dining (upstairs), the Cocktail lounge is first-come, first-served.

From hanging glass beads to architectural artifacts and an original Brunswick bar painted in gold and turquoise, this is clearly not your father's steakhouse. The Tavern's menu features USDA prime beef, Australian Wagyu, organically raised Uruguayan beef, and organic free-range chicken, diver-caught Maine sea scallops, assorted fresh fish, cold water Rock Lobster Tails, and in season: oysters from both coasts, the Alaskan king salmon run, live Maryland soft shell crabs, morels, chanterelles, and porcini from hunters in Oregon and Washington, and fresh produce from local county farms. An award-winning wine list featuring over 1,200 selections, a great wine by the glass assortment, and an unusually well-stocked bar round out the Tavern's beverage program.

Dinner included one of the best Ribeye steaks I have enjoyed. The spinach side was superb! We were busy talking (and could hear each other!) but our server was always pleasant and efficient. The décor is over the top but fun. This restaurant was a surprise discovery. We will gladly return.

Very nice and good place with delicious food! We celebrated there our anniversary, I ordered filet mignon and it was exceptional! Usually I don't order filet mignon in the restaurants as it can be easily overcooked and dinner could be ruined. Deserts were good too.
My only complain is that we were there with a toddler and they don't have a high chair for him.

Another fine experience at Tavern. Fantastic steaks, attentive and pleasant service in interesting surroundings, not no mention one of the best wine lists on the north shore.

Tavern used to be our favorite place for celebratory meals. We even hosted our wedding reception there 20 years ago. After our experience on Tuesday, 20 August, we will likely choose other destinations that provide far better service and food comparable if not superior. After ordering a bottle of Veuve Cliquot champagne and an appetizer, it took nearly 20 minutes for the waiter to return to take our dinner order. After waiting another 30 minutes, and seeing the other five tables being served more than one course if not three within that time, we grew weary of waiting, and left. The waiter avoided eye contact with us, so clearly our dinner order had not been put into the kitchen. Juan was not there this evening - and I am sure had he been this never would have happened.

The service at the Tavern Steakhouse was exceptional. Our waiter was very attentive and went above and beyond to make one of our guests comfortable. We enjoyed our meals very much. The steaks were aged and cooked to perfection and the spinach was excellent. The lobster ravioli was tasty. The lightly breaded calamari was a delicious way to start of the meal. The decor was unique and inviting.

Best halibut ever! Got the parmigiano crust. Husband had the 1/2 duck with fig glaze; nice and crispy as he requested. Will be back soon.

Nice "baubley" decor, however the tables are small and close together.
Attentive but not overbearing service.
Food delicious! Recommend for a special occasion!

I've enjoyed the Tavern for years. Between the eclectic decor (like Hogwart's), wide array of drinks and the menu it is a good value. Note on the decor: you can actually say you see dancing pink elephants when drinking at the bar.... Its a good local restaurant that has consistently given me a great dining experience.

While the appetizers (octopus & carpaccio) prevented a 5-star review, the main entrees (parmesan encrusted halibut & Tavern filet) were excellent.

My late husband and I had our first date at Tavern. We dined there every Christmas Yves. Tuesday we would have celebrated 25 years so I brought some friends with me to celebrate. What a wonderful time! Our server was fantastic as it was everybody else. A wonderful place to relive memories and start new ones!

Another wonderful meal, with great, personalized service from Rachel. We were celebrating a retirement and the beautiful decor, attention to details, and warm welcome made this a wonderful night to remember. We were given a table next to a beautiful window, in a corner which gave us a tiny bit of privacy, too. We always recommend Tavern for special events and just for a great time.
