Hi Weston, Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. I am glad the service was good. If you wouldn't mind letting me know which dishes you were able to try so I may look into the quality. We source the best quality ingredients for the price and have a from-scratch kitchen. We are very proud of what we are able to provide and if you didn't feel that way I would love to work with you! Please let me know.

We eat here about once a week. Mostly it is very good, but this last time the heat of the food was very uneven. Some things were hot and other things were very lukewarm and should have been hot. Perhaps heating the plates would be helpful.

Hi Gvanam, Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback. I am glad you typically enjoy yourself! As far as the temp of the food, I will certainly look into it. Heated plates is not something we can accomplish, but we can certainly look into our processes and find out what the issue is. Thank you again and we hope to see you soon!

Although we had a reservation, we still had to wait 30 minutes. The waiter was nice enough but he was not that attentive (e.g., my husband ordered the pork chop which was huge but the server not our waiter did not bring a steak knife. My husband had to flag down the waiter which took awhile). The food was very good and we enjoyed it very much. Next time we will make an earlier reservation and hopefully we will not have to wait so long.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave us some constructive feedback. I am glad you thoroughly enjoyed the food! Your reservation time should have been honored, I apologize that we missed the ball this time. We typically give our reservations ample time before the next table arrives, but sometimes this can be affected if the table spends a little more time with us. I apologize that we weren't capable of fixing this situation. If you have anything else to share, please let me know!

This was our first visit to The Tavern, but it's sure not to be our last. We loved the attentive service, the moderate noise level (we enjoyed the conversation; the TV screen was not obtrusive), and the fine food. The drinks were perfect (cosmo and margarita); the fried artichoke hors d'oevres were terrific as were the crabcake sandwiches. We are eager to try the rest of the fare on future visits.

Solid Food. Service usually great, but was a bit slack last time. Had to ask for a lot of stuff that should have been brought to table. Wine is a bit expensive for what they are serving. Weekly specials are great, but they usually run out if you are not there early ... like they did on Monday this week

Made reservation no problem, got to The Tavern on time. Seated in back by outside wall. Waitress was upbeat and friendly. We’ve eaten ether before. Food was back up to excellent but she wanted that table turned fast. Our mistake to order dinner before we received appetizers and drinks. Dinner comes before apps finished and halfway thru dinner, she asks if we’ve decided on dessert. In and out in half an hour.

Steakhouse quality at reasonable prices! I had the Baja tacos which were build your own- came with a filet of mahi mahi, guac, 4 or 5 tortillas and a generous portion of beans and rice. So delish!!! My husband got the filet and chicken enchilada- which, in theory, sounds strange but the 6oz filet was one of the best I’ve ever had. And I’ve been to all of the top steakhouses in town. And for $25 and an enchilada AND beans and rice- what a deal. Highly recommend. Will be back! Service was excellent as well. Thank you for a lovely evening!

The food and service is very good at the Tavern. The grilled artichoke appetizer and the fish tacos are outstanding. The sewage smell from the bathrooms really take away from the experience. Luckily it did not get bad until we were finished eating. Wish they could fix this reoccurring problem.
