Traveled in to Jacksonville for first time; this place was the best meal we had while in town. Wish we had found it sooner.
Sausage homemade in taverna hash?
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!
Excellent service and great entree recommendation from our server. Wonderful salads, sandwiches and pizzas. They're kid friendly too and helpful.
Great food and great service, can’t wait to go back very soon.

Absolutely wonderful meal! Great service! Can’t believe it took us this long to find this restaurant. We’ll be back soon!
Excellent!! Food, Service & Atmosphere was excellent.. would definitely recommend.
Staff was friendly and helpful, food was great, fun night with my husband!
All in all my husband and I enjoyed our night. The ambiance of the restaurant is very romantic and cozy. We ordered drinks, appetizers (the burrata was my favorite) and entrees. My husband ordered the soppresetta pizza which was amazing and would be worth returning for again and again. I only give the restaurant 4 stars for service. Our waiter was nice but never introduced them selves or mentioned any specials. I figure a restaurant of this caliber would have better trained wait staff.
