The Tavern is a restaurant by Mark Tarbell, who has operated the multiple-award-winning Tarbell's since 1994. In fact they are right next door to each other, and The Tavern offers Tarbell's quality and service in a more casual atmosphere. Connected both visually and philosophically with Mark's third venue, The Wine Store, The Tavern has the unique addition of a "Walk In Wine List", where retail wines can be selected from the store and added to your restaurant tab.

Always great food and service. Can’t wait to go back for more.
Always a great time at the Tavern. Excellent service and one of the best BURGERS in Phoenix!
The Tavern has become our go to when we want to head out. Friendly staff, great wine and yummy food. Our favorite is the cheeseburger served salad style. Delicious!
I always like this place...We had a great bottle of French Chablis that we purchased at the retail price. We shared the Beet Salad & the Lettuce Chicken wrap...all good.
Love the Tavern’s friendly staff, good food and wine shop. Always a great evening out!
The Fried Chicken Sunday Special was really special, including the traditional string bean with mushroom soup (all homemade), but, of course, was sufficient for another lunch. Selecting your specific wine from the wine shop makes it even cooler. I highly recommend everything in this casual atmosphere.
Mark has made some interesting changes to the tavern to adapt to the re-opening after the state shutdown. The space feels open and airy. New twists on the menu were a nice surprise!
Great place for drinks and snacks or casual dinner. Very super clean and good feeling.
Victoria helped make it a delightful evening for us...even got to taste two whisky's that Mark was reviewing on Plate and Pour, as we sipped. We always are happy with
First night they were open for seated service. Distancing was appropriate, limited menu at this time, although if you ask you can still get your favorites. Service was good and friendly as always. The minute a table was cleared it was disinfected, chairs included.
Great food, professional service. THE wine and food source of AZ .
Always solid and reliable. Their burger and tacos are to die for. And I had the cauliflower this time which also was amazing. Will come back.
Always good food & service and with the virus worries it isn’t crowded! Go support neighborhood spots?
Lobster Roll is spectacular. Huge Coconut Cream pie brought raves around the table. We are fortunate that this is in our neighborhood!!!
Amazing!!!! Our first visit there. Started with the avocado toast. Delicious. Then we had the bruschetta board, a salad, salmon and the lobster gundi. Again, delicious and wonderfully presented. We finished with the coconut cream pie —- the best I’ve ever had. Huge slice. The service was outstanding...and we got to meet Mark Tarbell. It’s been less than 48!hours since our visit and I want to go back.
We have been customers of The Tavern since it opened and it is always a great experience to eat there. The food is superb, the service is perfect and having the wine store there is the "icing on the cake".
Keep Up The Good Work
Service was pretty slow. Food is pretty pricey ($12 for one tiny taco.)
Hopefully, the Tavern was just having an off night, because everything was sub-par. Normally, they are consistent in quality and service. We spent the majority of our time there waiting for our food, with nobody letting us know why our food was detained. Once the food was finally served, it was substandard to what we normally get. I truly hope this was an isolated incident.
Salmon was cooked perfectly and the coconut cream pie was worth every calorie!
Lobster roll and blt were spot on - but what I didn’t expect was how much I would love the thick cut french fries. I am not a french fry fan but these changed my world.
Ha!! So glad you enjoyed your meal and our fries. Thank you for coming in and leaving us a five-star review, Deba!
I really love this place and now that they have a full bar it’s even better
So glad you are enjoying our new selection at the bar!
Food portions too small. Gnudi too heavy. Chile verde needed better seasoning and could be thicker.
Server and manager was great. Small glitch, but they exceeded our expectations on the fix and look forward to our next visit. Favorite place in town.
Not what I've come to expect from Chef Tarbell. Food was only okay, as well as the service. Last visit was 5 stars. We'll be back, just not on a special day like Valentine's.
First time at The Tavern, and it was a great meal. The coolest thing about the dinner is that you can go into their wine shop, pick your wine at normal retail price, and then enjoy it at dinner...and that is what we did. The ceviche was delicious, we each ordered a meal a share: the grilled cheese with tomato soup, and the lobster roll. Fantastic flavors, even though these were both simple plates. The food does not need to be rare or fancy, to be special and delicious, and these dishes were definitely delicious. Our server was excellent. The outdoor seating was fine, but not my favorite...no fault of the restaurant, I just don't dig sidewalk dining. I prefer something more scenic when sitting outside. That said, I would sit outside at The Tavern anytime if they keep making food that good, and selling great wines at a good price. We will be back, and soon!
Thank you for the glowing review, jcolfan! We so appreciate the kind words and are so happy that you enjoyed all of your choices. We look forward to seeing you again next time!
Great, wonderful, great waiter, food AAAAA+, always consistent
Thank you for coming in, Dennis, and the five-star, five-A+ review!! We so appreciate your spport.
Food is very good. Noise level is very high. Service was very slow. Dishes not cleared, oir waitress did not attend to us. A glass of wine took 15-20 minutes to deliver, which we ended up refusing since we were ready to leave.
Unfortunately my wife’s order did not come out correctly cooked so we had to wait for the chef to remake it but the server took it off our bill which was very nice
Alway delicious, Always terrific service. Noise level is good, you can actually have a conversation with your dinner guests.
There were a number of very noisy loud parties in the restaurant, making it exceptionally difficult for us to have any conversation. And the temperatures in the restaurant are always a little cold. Still, the food was excellent and our server was charming and efficient.
Met some friends here. It is small but nice atmosphere, great food, and great service
As great the food was , the staff was wonderful. Accommodating a change we requested , picking a wine off the shelves to go with dinner was fun . Will be back ,.
The Tavern is always an enjoyable, relaxed and satisfying experience. One of our reliable dining spots.
Great food and service
Had an outstanding experience on New Years Eve. Manager Chelsey made us feel welcome, our waiter Anthony & busser Noah were outstanding & the food was excellent. Thank you Mark Tarbell for investing in quality people, and staffing enough of them, despite rising labor costs, it shows!
Great meal Portions much larger than expected. Got a nice bottle of wine at the Wine store next door and they brought it over and opened without a corkage fee
Outstanding food, service and environment. Our favorite place for lunch and dinner with friends and family. Staff is super friendly. Prices very reasonable.
