Taverna never disappoints! Enjoyed an evening out with family. We had the shrimp & lobster risotto (special), eggplant Parmesan, chef’s focaccia, and a Caesar salad. DELISH! Every time we are in the area, we make arrangements to eat here at least once.

I took my best friend to dinner for her birthday. We had a 9pm reservation. Things were quiet as the restaurant was half empty. Things were off to a great start until about 9:40 when one of the servers came and told us that the kitchen was closed and we couldn't order anything else. There was no heads up, no last call. I was particularly disappointed because I had told our server that it was my friend's birthday. But since, the kitchen was closed, I was unable to order a dessert for her.

As it approached 10 o'clock, we started to feel very rushed. They kept insisting we could take our time while also wiping down the table as we were still seated. They also kept coming back to ask if we were done, and my friend ended up having to chug her glass of whiskey, which was far from ideal.
The food itself was decent with the exception of the Risotto being cold. In all, our 2 person dinner came to over $100 (before tip and tax) but I am not entirely sure it was worth it.

Our server was nice though.

Food and service consistently great. We sat outside, I had Salmone Capperi e Limone and hubby had Fettuccine Frutti di Mare - both were excellent! We will be back, highly recommend!

Enjoyed the appetizers and pizza. The service was superb. We were seated near the bar which placed us close to customers picking up to-go orders- felt crowded and noticed that one of the bartenders was not wearing a mask while the other was as well as other staff.

Great spot for pizza with the family on a beautiful Friday evening. Food and service were both great. Patio seating wonderful - close to perfect. Only thing that could have been better was that the tables were very close together - if there were accommodations for social distancing, it was not apparent - don’t need to take out half or even a third of the tables - just 1 or 2 fewer tables so guests are not so crammed in together on the patio.

We came for a birthday celebration for two of my family members. When we got there the table wasn’t ready yet because some previous guests were finishing up, but the manager was so kind when we were waiting. The food was delicious and then they brought out birthday desserts. Truly, I even told the manager this, we love Taverna and we were willing to wait because of how good the food is. They treated us so well.

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.

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..
