From hanging glass beads to architectural artifacts and an original Brunswick bar painted in gold and turquoise, this is clearly not your father's steakhouse. The Tavern's menu features USDA prime beef, Australian Wagyu, organically raised Uruguayan beef, and organic free-range chicken, diver-caught Maine sea scallops, assorted fresh fish, cold water Rock Lobster Tails, and in season: oysters from both coasts, the Alaskan king salmon run, live Maryland soft shell crabs, morels, chanterelles, and porcini from hunters in Oregon and Washington, and fresh produce from local county farms. An award-winning wine list featuring over 1,200 selections, a great wine by the glass assortment, and an unusually well-stocked bar round out the Tavern's beverage program.

Great evening!! We took our son here after his Navy RTC graduation. Everything was exceptional and the steaks....Awesome!! Great place, great food and great service!!
Always great ambiance at the Tavern. The food was just ok this time.
Delicious food and fabulous service!
Great food and the ambiance was amazing. A perfect birthday date for my girlfriend.
Food was perfect as always (rare filet, mussels, pate). Decor/ambiance is the coolest in town. We finished our Saturday evening 8:30 dinner reservation around 9:45 and our server was friendly but seemed very eager to get us to leave even though the table next to us just sat down. I ordered a cocktail but was never brought a water to go with it. Overall a very good experience, but the server seemed rushed/distracted.
Excellent! Wonderful food, great service, perfect ambience.
Our go-to place for a superlative experience! Great food, wonderful service, incredibly beautiful setting. Even comfortable chairs!
We had a wonderful holiday and birthday celebration here. Great food and service! Five stars across the board if they had a few more kid friendly dinner choices. Terrific wine selection, my bone in ribeye was cooked perfectly = awesome!
From the service to the food, The Tavern never misses a beat. A lovely place for a special holiday dinner with friends. Be sure to try the filet!
I went with a group of 6, we heard that we could get a quiet table so we could catch up and chat. We sort of were able to do that, it was noisy, but I've been to noisier restaurants! We had a great wait staff, one meal came wrong and they fixed it and took it off the bill!! My one and only complaint was that the tomato/mozzarella was very pricey (as was everything else, but we knew that going in), was so tiny that it wasn't worth ordering it at all....
Our steaks we fabulous as were all the side dishes!
Will definitely go back.
We love the Tavern and dine here often for a nice evening out or special occasion because it is always a reliable great meal with great service. However something was off the evening we dined here last. They were busy with a party in the back room and most of the dinning room was full, but the quality of the food and the service was comprised on this visit and was not up to expectations.
Very well attentive staff. Had the filet and lobster. Food is the best in town. Will be back. Only sorry I waited so long to try this downtown gem.
Would have given it overall 5 stars but they forgot to give us rolls. Food was great!
Cocktails were timely and well crafted. Appetizers came 20 minutes apart and tasty. Entree steaks had great favor and were properly prepared however they must have been delayed in their delivery as both were not served hot, but warm. Vegetables just above room temperature. Desserts were well prepared and full of describes flavors. Service level was poor from our waiter but excellent from the dining room staff. Second subpar experience of our last three visits, will hesitate returning to what once was a semi-annual treat
The food was great but service was slow, very slow. I realize it’s the holiday season and it was crowded but waiting for almost an hour to take our order was out of bounds. The waiter did comp us a round of drinks and a couple of desserts to make up for the wait.
Great food and atmosphere!
Experience was good. The food was well prepared and nicely presented. Our server did a good job, but was not notable.
Outstanding service and food! Had a great time and will return soon.
Can’t go wrong with The Tavern!!
Been here many times over the decades. Does not disappoint - service is friendly and knowledgeable. Food is very consistent. Drink menu is fun. Selections are varied enough for everyone to choose from. One critique I would have is to be aware how much butter or oil may be used in the cooking so that you can adjust if needed. Great personal touches on special occasions. $$.
Great. Always great. Best wine list in Lake county
We had an amazing dinner and were very well taken of by the attentive staff!!
Steaks without the upselling of chain steakhouses. One of the best wine lists on the north shore.
We were celebrating my son's birthday so wanted a special place. We also brought along my 4mo. old grandson. Although they didn't have a "sling" available to accommodate a car seat, we were seated in a quiet corner with no foot traffic (I'm sure part of our seating was in case my grandson made any noise). Regardless, the service was excellent and the food was delicious. (I sent my too-red steak back and it was returned exactly the way I asked--pink but not red. In other places the steak comes back well done and dried out.) A great place to go for a special occasion.
I have been here several times, and the food just seems to get better and better. We had a late reservation so I'm not sure how attentive the waitress wanted to be, but the food was outstanding.
Tavern has been my favorite for years. I believe it may be managed by new management but what ever they are doing is great. I have enjoyed the upgrades
We love the Tavern! It is a warm and hip atmosphere with great food. Our favorites are the mussels appetizer, tavern salad, halibut or any steak. I tried the shrimp for the first time and they were wonderful!
Only wish they would dim the lights a bit.
Been here many times and have never been disappointed.
This is the place we go when we have guests from outside of Libertyville and we want to have an impressive meal locally. I love everything about this restaurant. The decor is interesting, the service is always good and the food is fabulous!!
The food and service is OUYSTANDING . I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.
Birthday dinner for my husband
This restaurant has a good comfortable vibe. It's always decorated so nice and especially great during the holidays. We both had the halibut - it was fantastic. Could have probably included a little more of the side veggies, but the piece of fish was good. The wait staff was very attentive, always filling water glasses as soon as needed and they came around with a good assortment of breads. The desserts are amazing, especially the chocolate cake.
Very welcoming ! Staff very efficient, warm and friendly. Food outstanding.
Absolutely beautiful restaurant that is a delight to the eyes. The service was impeccable, and the food we ordered was done to perfection. The wine list is extensive.
Great place nice ambiance,my halibut was the best I’ve had. Even the cocktails were exceptional
Just wonderful! Food amazing and atmosphere gorgeous!
The restaurant has a nostalgic feel to it. We were seated upstairs and it got busy yet cozy the later part of the evening. I had the East and West Oyster combo and the veal chop. I would have liked a little more of those fresh oysters. Though I am not much of a meat eater, I thought the veal chop was good. I liked that it was succulent and really delicious. The Allen Brothers prime fillet was fantastic, highly recommended. The service was friendly and our server made some suggestions that worked out great for the dinner.
Love the changes with Manager & bartender !! Good move !
Been dining here for over 10 years! 1 of my top / favorite restaurants in Libertyville to hit when I’m in the area! Great food/ varied and interesting menu selections! Great steaks of course and great sides(love that foie gras is an option you can add to your steak, plus I love their wild rice, mushrooms, and asparagus sides)! I do miss, though, the larger quantity / selections of exotic steaks they used to offer before the 2008/2009 mortgage crisis! However, the food’s still great as are the ambience and service!!
We loved this place! Amazing wine selection, delicious food, attentive friendly service, and beautiful room. Sexy city vibe with affordable suburban pricing. We will absolutely be back!
