Tavern Steakhouse Libertyville
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.
It was friday night. Excellent service great food
Service was very slow and didn’t get our orders correct. They reach across the table to serve you which we didn’t appreciate. There was plenty of room to walk around. Just lazy I assume. Food was okay but not as good as it was the last time we ate here. They charge extra for soda (tonic) in a mixed drink which is unusual. Might be awhile before or if we return.
Steak was decent not much to brag about. Cream brûlée was not very good at all. Service was absolutely great though.
Greatfood, Great Service... Great time!
Fantastic food and service!
I was not happy this time, usually, it is great however, they truly failed!
The sommelier was not unhelpful, the bar made terrible drinks ..... not a great experience; I was unsatisfied after speaking to the manager..... it is not the same place-- I miss the expert work of both Tom & Brad!... Over the last 12 + years I would call this my favorite place... after this experience, I will rethink about going again!
My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. This a very unique looking restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed everything about it! I would definitely recommend it!
Great food and service. The dining room is a bit dark for me but over all amazing food service and atmosphere
Service was incredible, And the food was AMAZING. We had the filets and they were perfect! And the drink pairings are so fun
Food was brilliant - was really loud.
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.
Absolutely wonderful from start to finish!! The staff not only met but exceeded our expectations ten fold.
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.
The Tavern is the restaurant we use to celebrate a special occasion. This time it was our anniversary. Food and service never disappoint!
Great place for our 48th Anniversary!
Great service, great food, great drinks. I would definately do date night here again
Service was excellent. Bar atmosphere was fun and bartenders were friendly and nice. Menu read delicious but unfortunately taste was mediocre :(
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.
Wife’s 60th. Whole family attending. Main courses of Scallops, Uruguay and NY strips. Appetizers included mussels, oysters, shrimp cocktail and grilled octopus. Drinks had great pours. Excellent service and food enjoyed by all.
Great food, great service and a really fun ambiance. A local favorite for a nice night out. Be sure to save time for a drink in the lounge.
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.
Great wine and food. Always a good experience.
THE SOUR DOUGH BREAD IS GREAT. THE YOUNG LADY WHO WAITED OUR TABLE WAS VERY ATTENTIVE.
Food is always excellent
Service is un rushed allowing you time to enjoy your friends
Food was good well prepared. Waitress seem like it was her first day. Needs additional training.
Excellent food and service. Prompt and attentive. Great homemade breads.
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.
Always a great experience at Tavern. Exceptional service, outstanding food, and an intimate atmosphere.
Perfectly cooked steaks!! Great wine list!!
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.
Always a great meal at The Tavern!!
Great food, good service, great wine!
My wife really love the fact that The Tavern is a one of a kind, and not part of a chain!
Food and service always exceptional. The atmosphere is also the finest in the area. Always a place to celebrate special occasions
Always enjoy Tavern Steakhouse, especially for a special occasion or holiday. We love the decor, the food is excellent, great wine list, attentive service and upscale ambiance.
While the appetizers (octopus & carpaccio) prevented a 5-star review, the main entrees (parmesan encrusted halibut & Tavern filet) were excellent.
Food was amazing!!! Service was top notch!! Will return for sure and 100% recommend!!!
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!
