    Great little spot. The small plates are outstanding. Roasted oysters, arancini and salad were wonderful. The sauce with the rice balls was very authentic. The kitchen staff has got some chops. More than some. Great service. Pleasant and helpful.

    We went to experience the famous burger. I was disappointed in the soggy bun. The onion gravy was delicious but made the bun fall apart and couldn’t enjoy the cheese or the meat Maybe a harder roll would be better. The steak tartar was amazing seasoned and the parpadella small plate could eat as a meal. But the carrot cake OMG!! The BEST!! I would eat here again to get a very impressive salad and the carrot cake again!!

    We have eaten here many times before and the food has always been fantastic. My husband had the pork chop and it was sub par. The chop itself wasn’t the same quality as it has been in the past. And the side dish of the brussel sprouts and fennel was not good. It was just raw chopped and drowning in a too lemony dressing. My dinner was delicious (halibut). It was just disappointing because we’ve had such good meals there in the past.

    This was the first time I went to The Grand Tavern. It's a small, cozy place. The menu changes every day, so there are no menus. I had to go to the website to see what was available to eat that day. I ordered 2 small plates, and my son ordered the lamb. All the food was excellent, prepared fresh. I would definitly go again. Reservations required.

    Delicious as always. We enjoyed the bone marrow starter and each had the burger with gruyere and onion jus - normally when we go we get a couple of entrees to share but this looked so good we just had to get our own! And the carrot cake with cream cheese whip was, of course, to die for.

    The grand tavern is a unique place. They have a menu which changes. I personally like that. It allows me to try different preparations and presentations of food. The wait staff is very friendly and I’m really happy it’s in my hometown. One down side is, because it’s small, it can get very loud.

    It’s ALWAYS a wonderful experience at The Grand Tavern and this visit was no exception! We sat at the bar with a view of the open kitchen which was great. The craft cocktails were amazing. My husband had the Dove 4.0 and I had the Love Lockdown and both were really enjoyable. We shared the grilled broccoli, roasted oysters and papardelle small plates and they were all delicious. We then shared the short rib entree and really enjoyed it. The carrot cake was the perfect ending to a fantastic meal!
