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.

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!

Amazing - corn mushroom and French onion soups, bread, filet and flat iron steaks, Brussels sprouts and chocolate decadence cake. And the staff were the perfect combination of professional and friendly.

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.

My wife and I were celebrating her birthday; this was our second time dining with the Tavern. Besides the noice volume being fairly high, which is to no fault of the Tavern, everything else was wonderful. The friendly attentive staff, ambiance, service and truly amazing food made my wife’s birthday one to remember. We would highly recommend the Tavern to anyone looking for fine dining in Lake County. We will, of course, be back.

This was our first visit in about 10 years. I have no idea why we waited so long to return. We absolutely loved the atmosphere, and could not have been happier with service; it was the perfect combination of warmth and efficiency!
We began with cocktails...no complaints there.
We chose 2 appetizers; the oysters were underwhelming. $15 for 4 small oysters that just weren't special. The shrimp, on the other hand, were excellent. We chose "Acapulco style" - 5 large chilled shrimp with avocado, cilantro and cocktail sauce with a kick. We would order these again in a second!
My entree was rack of lamb. The portion was generous, but it was slightly undercooked. I'm certain that had I mentioned it to our server, it would have been taken care of with no hesitation. Overall, it was good, but not great. I will choose differently on our next visit.
My husband chose the pork chop. Though he did enjoy it, he, too, would likely make a different choice next time.
We both had a glass of wine with dinner; me, an Oregon pinot noir, my husband, a California cabernet. Both were excellent and complemented our meal perfectly.
As we were celebrating our anniversary, the service team offered dessert on the house, but we simply couldn't. Instead, to our surprise, they comped a round of drinks. Not expected, but a lovely gesture.
In summary, we liked, rather than loved, the food, but the atmosphere and service were SO wonderful that we will definitely return!

We love The Tavern, have had countless wonderful dining experiences, and have brought many friends with us. The food, service and ambience are always superlative. Never have we encountered the raucous, invasive noise level inflicted on us last Wednesday, 4/10, by a table of incredibly rude young men that were so obnoxiously loud that we were unable to visit with our guests, who had traveled up to Libertyville from Chicago for what we had promised them would be a most enjoyable evening of fine dining and conversation. They have no desire to return to what has always been our favorite go to place for special occasions. I regret that the management did not encourage this party to take their bar room behavior downstairs to the bar, where perhaps their intrusive behavior would have still been obnoxious, but perhaps more appropriate to a bar. That being said, Kudos to our very sweet and efficient waitress and the other waitstaff, and of course, to the chef.
