Just a night out with another couple for dinner. Food and service were excellent. Pricing was a bit high for the food/area. Never heard of wine from a tap, but they have it. Didn’t try that though! I live close and would probably go more often if the prices were a bit more reasonable. No apps or dessert, two standard cocktails. Pasta dish and salmon dish, no sides. $86 for two. (Includes 20% tip). If we had ordered our normal apps and dessert we’d be well over $100, value isn’t there.
The atmosphere was awesome. The chicken ravioli was awesome
It was average to good in all aspects. The server (Alex) was very nice and personable. He needs training (as most do these days) in the finer points of service. The table was set with a chipped b&b/appetizer plate which I used for bread and my shared apps. Caesar was very good, chilled romaine and homemade croutons. Shells Aurora was very rich (which I liked), but with only a hint of spinach and the chicken was over cooked. Our drinks and wine were good. I might return, but won’t rush back.
First time at Taverna North. We had high expectations since we frequent Taverna Newark and Capers and Lemons in Wilmington.
Unfortunately, we were disappointed, especially with some parts of our experience!
We were greeted promptly and graciously by a bright eyed hostess. Not being familiar with the layout, we were guided to a booth yin the bar area…we made reservations…
After being seated, I noticed our location was in the pathway of the restrooms, so lots of traffic…
The waitress was friendly and professional. We ordered and I stated we are not in a hurry so don’t rush our courses. Our appetizer was good and we we’re almost finished when the entrees were delivered by a runner. So much for nit rushing!
Then I noticed that my entree plate gad 2 large chips instead the rim…I questioned the runner… didn’t anyone notice the plate that should have been discarded? Nope, not even the chef. I told him to take it back to the kitchen… My new entree was delivered by a manager who just stated… here is your entree… no apology, no nothing, she turned and walked away.
Shame on management for obvious lack of training….
Almost ruined our Anniversary Dinner!!!
Was rushed out since we weren’t aware closing time was 9 pm
Had to hand salt and pepper to server when requested. That should never happen
Salad was good
Shells aurora was too saucy and almost gummy thick
Dessert was fine ice cream learned last week the others weren’t as good
Great service! Food was awesome’
Great food and service. The salmon was cooked perfectly and my sandwich was delicious.
Took my teenage kids who are so picky and they loved it! The food a d service were great!
The liquor drinks were ok, appetizer peppers was also ok. Salmon and salad were great. Service was great. Location and ambience are very nice for us.
Love Taverna! We go there often because the servers, food, bartenders etc...are amazing! Great place and we love the outdoor seating!
Beautiful outdoor patio dining for lunch. Diverse lunch menu with lovely salads, sandwiches and appetizers. My Shrimp Panzanella was served on a bed of arugula with generous mozarella, cherry tomatoes and onion with a delicious vinaigrette. Lunch menu more reasonably priced than dinner but a great find.
Food and service were excellent!
I tried the chicken taverna tonight, but thought it needed more lemon and was very heavy. However, I did get a few bites of my boyfriend's sausage and rigatoni. Let me just say the spaghetti and tomatoes as well as the rigatoni and sausage are 2 of their best dishes. The sauce was INCREDIBLE and absolutely made up for my dish. We saved some for leftovers tomorrow for dinner and I can't wait to eat it all over again! I'd also like to add that the server we had tonight was excellent and did a phenomenal job.
Food was unimpressive
Caesar Salad was brown and wilted
Dessert pudding was liquid
Tiramisu was runny
Did a fridge break down?
Shells Aurora was not great
It used to be our favorite
Sauce was thick and sticky perhaps too much flour
Was one of our favorites places but seems to have lost a chef
Sadly the bar couldn’t seem to keep up. My drink had to be cancelled because it didn’t make it to the table before we finished eating. Manager never visited to apologize despite having to void the charge on our check. Our waitress was very nice but this was out of her control. Food was decent.
Good food and the service was great.
Ambience and service was excellent but I was expecting much better food. There is nothing of Italian, just few food names. My coal fired pizza tasted like a pan fried pizza, oily and too soft. The side fries were good.
Good food and excellent service, what more can you ask for!
Food was excellent! We’ll definitely be back.
The food was very good and our waitress was wonderful
Our group lingered for quite a while, was pleased there wasn't pressure to have us leave.
Great dinner! high quality meal, great menu options!
Our server was overwhelmed with too many tables to handle herself. Therefore we did not get very good service. Two of the entrees had to be returned because the chicken was overcooked and the pasta was tasteless. Its too bad because in the past we did not have these issues. I hope that you can fix them before we return. We used to like going there alot!
Fantastic food,drinks, and staff! Love at first bite!
Father’s Day dinner. Amazing food!!
Great food!!! Wonderful meal!!!!
Great menu! Service was excellent. Will not hesitate to go back again.
We ate outside. Great service and the food was very good
Food was good, although nothing special. Steam clams were sort of bland. Potato and Gnocchi was good, but tomato based instead of creamy which was a bit odd.Rigatoni & Sausage was good. Crispy Meatball pizza was fair - nothing special. Service was very good. Over all the experience was okay. Would visit again, but won't be first on the list.
Great service, great dinner, we love Taverna’s. Highly recommend!
Graduation celebration for our Blue Hen. Outstanding meal, beautiful restaurant, wonderful staff.
So I had a great experience. The restaurant took very good care of us, we were a group that included four cancer survivors. They set us up outside per our request, the outside patio is lovely you would never know that you’re sitting on Silverside Road. The food was exceptional, and the staff was amazing. I am highly recommend the restaurant.
Great dinner and great service. We had been taking out from Taverna during the pandemic, but it was better in the restaurant. We both had the shells aurora and it was delicious. Our server was very attentive and helpful. We highly recommend.
We enjoyed Taverna. Really friendly bartender, gave good menu advice and can make a great drink. I would like to see the wines by the glass menu expanded a bit. Four of us then had dinner. Service was good - not rushed. Calamari appetizer as well as the roasted peppers were delicious. Our entries from pasta to chicken all cooked perfectly. Prices are what you expect to pay considering all places are raising theirs. Worth a visit!
Always nice dining at Taverna. They need to improve the selection of wines by the glass and a few more mixed drinks to the menu.
Very good food at reasonable prices for North Wilmington. Ambiance is nice and very open with big windows looking out. Outside seating available. Parking sometimes an issue currently due to ongoing construction in other parts of the complex (has many spots blocked off) … so if going with friends, perhaps “carpooling” is a good idea for the short term.
Overall very good experience… will plan to return!
One of my favorite restaurants - it never disappoints... you can’t go wrong with any of the Platinum dining group’s restaurants
Waiter was great!
