    We were looking for a casual dining spot to meet an out-of-town friend. We were also looking for a menu that offered meat, fish and non-meat options . Taverna fit the bill and it did not disappoint. It is one of the best old fashions I have had, the food was excellent and very well presented, and the staff was great. And overall win. I would recommend.

    Made a reservation for Sunday brunch the night before and requested the patio, def recommend both the reservation AND the patio! Great ambiance and people watching on the street, felt cozy but not too crowded. I had the eggs Benedict with ham, the ham was the kind you always really hope it’ll be, fresh cooked and soft, sliced thin. Everything had just the right amount of seasoning, except for the salad that came on the plate, it wasn’t too flavorful and while it looked pretty did t really go with the meal imo. (And only my opinion, you might love it) We didn’t partake of the drink specials but they looked yummy and the price was right, maybe next time bc I’ll be back!

    Sunday Brunch time is such a good vibe! This was my first at Taverna and I was pleased with the seating and quick service, the staff was awesome. I loved the variety or food options and the drink specials. I will definitely return for a date, friends gathering or family event. I highly recommend!

    We had reservations and were seating right away. Our waitress was very attentive and nice. Beautiful restaurant. Food was delicious. My husband is very picky with Italian food and he enjoyed it. Only negative would be that where we sat the tables were very close together which was hard for the wait staff to get around and the portions of food are not huge, but we were full when we left. We had appetizers, salad, main meal and split dessert.

    I know it was the evening of Valentine’s Day, but I was put off by 3/4 of my experience. Had a reservation for 8:30…. Wife & I got there at 8:15. We weren’t seated until 9:05. The reason given for the delay was that the kitchen was slammed. It was laughable because there is a clear view into the kitchen from the entranceway & you could see multiple cooks just standing around. While we waited, we had a few drinks at the bar. When seated at our table, one of the bartenders rushes over to our table & rudely explains that bar tabs can’t be added to dinner tabs. My intentions were to have another drink after dinner, but after that, I was more than happy to just have dinner & leave. The food was bland & my wife barely touched her plate. Thankfully, they comped her dish to account for all the inconveniences. Shoutout to our server, Meghan. She was one of the only bright spots in this experience. My suggestion to everyone is I’d drink there, but I doubt I’ll ever be back there to eat

    For it to be brunch the music made me feel like I was in a night club. Requested twice if it could be turn down and each time we wer told it was when no one turned it down. Was sitting at the bar I could see my friend mouth moving but couldnt hear what she was saying unless I asked her to repeat and say it loudly. It sounded like everyone was talking loud to over talk the music. When I went outside to wait for smy friends you could hear the music. I came to have a nice bruch not go to a night club. Have been there before and the music was not that loud.

    We went here for brunch. It is a nice-looking restaurant with an energetic vibe, and the brunch menu has something for everyone. I had the eggs benedict, and my husband had the French toast. From looking around, the $3 mimosas are a big hit! Everything was fine, but a few things kept it from five stars: The server never brought my husband his syrup, even after he asked for it, so our food was a bit cold by the time we tracked the syrup down. The muffin on the benedict was very hard, and the ham a bit too salty. We would go again.

    The food and service was outstanding. My problem was the music was so loud that everyone had to speak louder to hear any conversations. There was no way to have a nice comfortable relaxing lunch/dinner at this restaurant. By the time we left, I started to get a migraine and it didn’t end until the following day. Maybe the restaurant is geared towards a younger crowd who loves loud music.

    Taverna is a lively spot right in the middle of Buckhead with good food and a fun, vibrant scene. The staff is welcoming and professional. The menu has something for everyone. We dined there last night and got a warm reception from the folks at the front. Our table was ready on time. Our server was friendly. Two of us tried the special artichoke arugula salad topped with shrimp for one and salmon for me. The salmon was perfect and the salad was so well thought-out but a little over salted. The last of our group had eggplant parmesan and was pleased. This is a good spot!

    Friendly folks at the front desk; excellent wait staff checking in at all the right times; very good food; I sometimes judge the competency of a chef or sous chef, whichever the case, in whether or not they deliver eggs prepared as requested. These were done perfectly. This experience convinced the four of us at brunch to come back for dinner the next time we're in town.

    We always enjoy our experience at Taverna. The staff is friendly and helpful. I appreciate that it is kid friendly as well. Our girls love to go and get the pizza dough to play with while they are there. The food is delicious and you can't beat their weekend brunch specials! Who doesn't love a $3 mimosa or Aperol spritz?! Glad they've kept this going for so long when a lot of other restaurants have eliminated these types of specials.

    We were visiting Atlanta for one night to see Cirque and wanted somewhere special for dinner. We found Taverna on Open Table and were so thrilled with the entire experience! The staff was so professional and friendly. We had our little girl with us, and everyone was so sweet to her. I had the sea bass, and it was phenomenal! Our daughter was very happy with the spaghetti and meatballs, and my husband loved his seafood linguine! Taverna is a beautiful, upscale casual restaurant with outstanding food and service!

    Taverna is a fun and delicious restaurant and all the food we ordered was very good especially the special roasted red pear salad but overall the experience was marred by the fact they ran out of gluten free pasta and we had chosen this restaurant for that choice and had called the day of the reservation to make sure it was available and was told that it was available - we had a diner with us who has celiac disease therefore it was a necessity to have gluten free. Very disappointing.

    This was our first visit, and I will never go back. We were there for lunch and the service was terrible. Our waitress, Maria, disappeared for long stretches of time. The special salad (not an entree size) which Maria hyped up to us ended up being $24, which she never mentioned until the bill came. We were asked if we wanted pepper on our salad and it never came. They were unable to make two of the three appetizers we requested. Some of the pasta in my Pasta alla Norma entree was severely undercooked, while other pieces were overcooked. Waters were not refilled. We had to get up and find our own napkins and silverware as none were ever delivered even after our appetizers came. The male waitstaff who delivered our food were flat out rude.
