We loved the excitement of the restaurant- the decor was pleasing to the eye- the rustle and bustle of the wait was a wonder in itself - the food was outstanding and out waitress was perfect - we really enjoyed the experience -
Excellent food and service as usual. Extra birthday treats much appreciated. We will be back.
A favorite spot. Always good and staff is well trained, friendly.
First time visited this restaurant and impressed with layout, service staff and wine selection as well as food choices. Will go back again, and suggest a visit there to experience it
Wonderful neighborhood gem of a restaurant. Clean delicious inventive food with lots of flavor. Very nice friendly staff and super accommodating. They really aim to please. Would highly recommend for all sorts of occasions.
Traveled in to Jacksonville for first time; this place was the best meal we had while in town. Wish we had found it sooner.
Always have great food and drinks! The wait staff is personable, knowledgeable and professional.
Sausage homemade in taverna hash?
As always food was awesome and service great. We did get seated during a time when lots of seats were available and the next patrons got sat immediately to us where they could’ve been placed a seat away. It was odd.
We enjoyed our meal at Taverna. The food was interesting, and each of the four meals was well prepared. We were rather amused that my husband’s vodka and tonic came with a one dollar up charge for “ the small batch tonic.” It wasn’t the extra money, it was the lack of warning that a simple vodka tonic came with an extra charge that surprised us. Our server was attentive, but not too attentive. Each person in our party found the pew like booths difficult to get in and out of. The low seats, lack of space and the angle between seat and table required the skills of a contortionist. We will ask for a table the next time.
Highlights were the ability to order a variety of cheeses and meats for a platter, and the small plates menu. Overall it was a nice evening, and we will go back.
It was very noisy in the building. The food was sub-par for what I paid.
The food and drinks were great! Was a little bummed at first that my husband and I were seated by a large party but as the night went on the busier they got so the noise level didn’t really matter. The food and drinks made me forget about the party anyways. The service was awesome as well! Definitely would like to go back :))
As always, Taverna shines through! Ryan, our server was fantastic! A lot of personal service and friendly demeanor... I love that we can walk to this great neighborhood restaurant..
Taverna is one of my favorite restaurants. I can go there often and not worry about having to order the same thing as the menu is seasonal and they always have great specials. My husband and I had the fish special (black Grouper) which was so tasty. Every bite was eaten and I practically licked the plate! The wait staff is very attentive and the manager always comes around asking if all is good. Well it was more than just good. It was excellent!!! The wine list is very good as well with many reasonable selections.
The service, food, and overall sense of warmth surround you making it difficult to leave. The food is impeccable, and the music was surreal! Cannot wait to eat there again!
