Taverna is a wonderful spot for brunch. The food was amazing. My daughters and I had a fabulous time. I had the omelette and my girls had the hash and lemon ricotta pancakes. Everything was so tasty and beautifully presented. Definitely a must for brunch.
Came here in January for my birthday and the server completely forgot to ring in our orders and remembered after we were sitting there for an hour. Nothing was compensated for the mistake. Thought I would try it out again for a special occasion that occurred Wednesday evening and the server was flat out rude and made us feel like a burden. This used to be my favorite place but sadly, things have changed. Hopefully they get a better staff soon.
You are doing EVERYTHING right! And I am so grateful.
We have eaten at Taverna multiple times and it’s one of our favorite restaurants in Jax! Service and food is always top notch! Some favorites are the fungi pizza, ravioli and of course the orecchiette (make sure you add goat cheese!!!).
Great service and food!
The food is delicious. Really tasty and great quality. The service is excellent also. Currently they have a smaller menu with less items but the quality has been maintained. During this time when it could be dangerous and scary to venture out for dinner, I felt safe. All employees are wearing masks and mostly have gloves on. The tables have been distanced. The outdoor patio offers that outdoor experience that also adds an element of safety. We had a great evening and enjoyed every dish.
Another wonderful trip to Taverna! Wonderful Fathers' Day meal, but I got stuck with the check again!!
Excellent service and excellent food!
The salad is amazing, the coffee is delicious and the lemon ricotta pancakes are heaven.
Lovely Father's Day brunch! Food, service and atmosphere were perfect :)
A picture says it all
As good as always! Love the place. We’ve been there several times. Never dissapoints!
THANK YOU FOR WEARING MASKS. I appreciate you following CDC guidelines and having outdoor seating reservations!
excellent care taken by staff to ensure cleanliness and safety. Food was excellent as always!
Manager was rude to us. Service was pretty bad too. Food was no good. Did not eat it. We’ve been here before and loved it, but this time it was no bueno.
As always, experience at Taveena, excellent!
Outside seating, great team service. Cocktail drink My Pair Lady was worth the price of admission alone; excellent drink. Wow.
Taverna is always a wonderful place for to share a yummy lunch and a bottle of wine!! Try it!!
Love Taverna. Food is great and service professional.
We sat outside in the fresh air because of COVID. The tables were smoky spaced and u set a fan which was appreciated with the hot weather. Our waiter wore a mask and was very friendly and attentive. Our drinks arrived quickly and were delicious, as was our food.
We had a reservation; stood for 5 minutes ( no big deal) to be seated but then 15 minutes before anyone ever approached our table.... once served, our waitress was great and the food was excellent. We will go back again ... but would like a little bump up on service
My favorite stop for work or play. The food, drinks and service are always amazing.
We had a wonderful experience as always! The chefs choice cheese and charcuterie board was awesome. I was able to try some things I wouldn’t normally and was not disappointed!
My dinner at Traverna was just the same as it was before the virus. There are strategies in place for safety purposes but they really don’t affect the experience at all. This time I ordered the roasted Brussels for dinner because I’ve always liked them as a setup with the chicken. This time I ordered them with grilled shrimp; delicious! I haven’t been to many restaurants lately so I really enjoyed this break from my own cooking!
I went with my wife for our anniversary and it was spectacular. The staff were amazing, the food was incredible and they treated us so well. A perfect night out, I couldn’t be happier!
Great! Happy to dine in at Taverna!
Our server Peter was very kind and timely. Food was incredible.
Taverna is a great destination for nice casual dining. The outside seating is amazing anytime but they have expanded the outside for social distancing and the setup is perfect!
For not going out to dinner for a long while it was a perfect experience that I won’t forget. The charcuterie was amazing and I highly recommend having a drink with your dinner
Service was simply painfully slow. Would have expected the opposite during these times. We go there often enough, disappointed.
Mother’s Day amazing . Great service Peter and staff . Yummy food . Delicious drinks perfect atmosphere and setting felt very safe
It was so great to be here again!!
Finally! My meal plated instead of bagged! That in itself was such a nice treat but in addition the food, service, and drinks were also stellar. It was Mother’s Day and my husband and I made a reservation for the two of us on the patio. The food was cooked perfectly and came quickly. The service was friendly and attentive with all staff wearing masks. Welcome back a Taverna and staff!
I’ve never had a bad dish here - food and service is always excellent!
Dinner at Taverna is always even more amazing than you can hope it will be. The food is perfection, the service is attentive, ambiance is the perfect balance of lively and content. We always leave better than we arrived. Our favorite place to celebrate, go on a a date or recharge.
The noise level was way too loud for good decent conversation.
Sauteed calamari and venison special were superb. The blue-crab bucatini was missing something, even with the waiter-suggested addition of shrimp. Not bad by any means but not special. The Mad Violets pinot noir was a great recommendation as well. Ask for bread with the calamari – the liquid too good to waste.
Their special, the venison chops, was easily the best meal I have had ALL year!
Lovely meal, perfectly prepared. Love seeing more
Healthy options. Would like to see biodynamic and organic wines. Like the options for 2 ounce pour of the great wine from Sardinia.
