I have been to Taverna many times on many different occasions and it is always great! Hot and delicious food with so many gluten free options. Fantastic service as well and everyone was wearing masks and following health protocols.

We went to Taverna in Atlanta and got the most amazing service. The manager Chris Lamoree treats every table like they are #1. Our table was not the best for our group so they happily moved us to where we wanted and gave us a complementary desert for the trouble (which was none at all). Highly recommend this restaurant and the incredible staff.

The inside area was packed, had tables with huge groups, and it didn’t appear that masks were required for customers. The outdoor area had distanced seating and not too many tables though, which I appreciated. But at one point, a waiter came over to explain the cocktails and took his mask off to do so. We could hear him with it on, so I don’t know why he did. That made me very uncomfortable. At a time like this when so many of us are trying to support restaurants, restaurants should be taking extra precautions to keep customers safe. They need to do better.

Food was very good. Restaurant was pretty active. We sat on patio and were a little concerned that people were seated a little close together. They probably had 2-3 too many tables going on the patio based on CDC guidance.

The chicken parmigiana was tasty but the actual chicken was tough and chewy, typical of chicken with steroids for growth.

Man who greeted us was rude. Sid we were late but didn’t realize I had called to change time of reservation to 30 minutes later. Then he said “no big deal.” Hardly anyone in there. Waitress was very nice.
My food was good. But my son’s was just fair. Ambience was not great. Would.not go back. No social distancing between tables at all.

If only the food was half as good as the waiter. The noice level was horrible in the restaurant. We have had lunch on the patio before which was much more pleasant.
They are not social distancing in the restaurant either.

We sat outside, so I did enjoy the fact that we were not close up on one another. If this coronavirus wasn't going on, then lite fans outside would have been nice.

Really looking forward to trying this restaurant.. We looked at the menu on line & Had A Veal Dish we wanted to order.. As we looked at the menu.. it was totally different.. The waiter said.. He knew nothing about any Veal dishes.. We ordered & Our food was less than good.. My husband & I had Pasta dishes.. Both Dry & Sticky.. Sent them both back.. They watered them down .. Terrible..The other dish Eggplant Parm.. OK.. The table we had was Great on the patio.. Good Night night except for the food..

As always the whole staff exceeds expectations.. although we had a slight rocky start due to the brunch rush, Chris, Audrey and Lynn made sure that the experience moving forward with the visit was nothing short of a great time. Thank you for always taking great care of me and my guests.

Loud. Unbelievably loud. despite being 2:30 pm, it took 35 minutes to get one omelette. Waiter never came back to check on us while we were so patiently waiting for food, he never brought water, or asked if we needed any other refreshments. The food quality for the cost was entirely acceptable.

Food was made fresh with quality ingredients. Service was a bit slow, and disorganized. I watched at least 3 tables that were seated after us receive service and drinks before my party. It took about an hour fifteen to receive our food after ordering, and the restaurant traffic didnt appear to be at a high volume. The chef was excellent though, great hosting.

Had Saturday brunch and the food was amazing. I had the steak and eggs, and even though my temp was slightly off, the food was still delicious. They are social distancing and disinfecting between customers. I highly recommend.
