Food and service is always fantastic. Not to mention, it's the closest to a BYOB you'll come to AZ. You can purchase a bottle of wine at the Wine Shop next door (at retail prices) & enjoy it with your meal at the Tavern.
A truly enjoyable evening! Jaime was delightful and described several wine choices from the Wine Store as she helped us pick a very delicious Rose Pinot Noir. The Scottish Salmon was the best we’ve had anywhere. Bringing our foodie friends from out of town to The Tavern was a perfect choice!
Great, very diverse menu. Knowledgeable waiter. Who is able to provide gluten-free Options.
A friend shared with us that the restaurant was a little noisy and so I phoned the restaurant the morning of our reservation to see if we could be seated in a quiet spot. I was told they could accommodate me. When the first of my party arrived, the restaurant was 2/3 full and she was told to pick out what ever she thought might work for us. At that point, there were no choices open , and obviously none had been saved as promised. The food served was acceptable, nothing special. The charcuterie platter was bland, the lettuce wedge was bitter, and there was NO blue cheese in either the salad or the dressing. I made the reservation with the burger in mind, and it did not disappoint. We all agreed the chiliquillie was the best choice that night. I do want to say that our waiter Moses was excellent in accommodating all our needs. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone I know. They really need to do something to deflect the obnoxious loudness of the restaurant.
I had the lobster roll which was chunks of succulent lobster on a roll- simply delicious. My husband had the risotto which was rich and creamy and a large portion. He brought half home for lunch the next day. Great casual menu and full wine menu next door. It is a little loud for conversations, but we are in the high season. I highly recommend this restaurant for a gourmet experience in an upscale casual atmosphere.
Food was excellent and even though it was very busy, we were impressed with the staff and food services.
Our wait person was great and very helpful. Love the fact you can order half portions. We tried 3 things. Pork green chili was excellent. The grilled cheese and tomato bisque also very good. The mushroom risotto was so-so. It had cool spots in it and needed something to punch up the flavor, but please not truffle oil.
Great food! Love the wine store next door!
Consistently providing good service, with a menu full of variety. This is an easy choice for light, casual fare.
Amazing food with eclectic choices in unpretentious but intimate setting.
The menu is unusual and offers delicious choices. We ordered warm lobster salad and scallop serviche. And had 2 glasses of Prosecco for a Valentine lunch. Adriana is a delightful server.
Staff was very good, friendly, helpful, attentive.
Terribly noisy group,at an adjoining table detracted from our experience. Food, wine, and everything else was very good.
Food and drink were all outstanding including some of the house seafood specialties. The band there on Saturday afternoon was also great!!!!
We had a bit of trouble getting our order out in a timely manner but the restaurant took care of the problem immediately and made it right. Great food.
The Tavern is a great neighborhood restaurant with excellent food and wines. We like to support locally owned restaurants, and in particular, Mark.
Had the lamb burger....best I've ever had! Great thin, crispy French fries on the side. Background music too loud.
The menu is eclectic, the food was delicious, the service was wonderful, and the atmosphere was delightful. This is a gem of a restaurant.
Food and Service we're exceptional, however, noise level was not energetic it was just painfully loud. I didn't come expecting an intimate romantic dinner but I didn't expect a rock concert level.
Great service while dining at the bar. Burger was excellent. You can buy a bottle of wine in their wine shop next door and have it served with no corkage fee.
We had a great lunch with a wonderful waitress and enjoyed ourselves.
This is one of ur go to spots in the Phx area, great food and the wine selection is outstanding
The Tavern never disappoints! Good food and nice ambiance.
The Tavern food and menu choices were outstanding. Not at all boring. Warm lobster salad was divine. Big chunks of lobster claw meat. I went with the girls. I will bring my husband soon. He will love it.
I love the fact that we can walk next door to buy retail wine and bring it into the restaurant. Huge variety at The Wine Store at Tarbells. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Scallop ceviche was amazing...so was the BLT and charcuteríe.
Went there last Saturday, liked it so much I was there again, with my boss and wife on Tuesday.
Wanted our house guests to experience Tarbell’s cooking. I was a little disappointed in the octopus street taco. The octopus was very small and slightly overcooked. We do love the wine selection though.
I'd never visited the Tavern before, but have been to Tarbell's many times. The food was very good, but the service was outstanding. The only downside? It closes at 9 pm! What???
Cozy spot with very good food and good wine list. Wine store next door one of the best in the city.
The restaurant was very cold on a cold day! Couldn’t get warm which spoiled our lunch!
Lovely NYE Dinner
We came here because I forgot to make NYE reservations and they were open. The service was great, the ambiance is great...the food was really good, just not great.
And the place was FREEZING because it opens to the wine store.
If you are looking for a casual dinner out, Tavern could be your place.
Good food, great service. Nice atmosphere.
Great experience overall. Fun place with unique local feel. Wine store attached provides opportunity to select bottles for dinner at retail prices and no corkage fee. Service is always outstanding. Don’t miss the coconut cream pie.
All of the food was great! We sat in the Wine Room and although a tad chilly, it was a lot of fun and not quite as loud as the restaurant. We all had a great time and will be back!!
Fantastic service and superb food
The Seafood Paella and Lamb Burger were delicious!
We always have a great meal and enjoy the ambiance. The staff is welcoming and very attentive. One of our favorite 'go to' restaurants.
It was great!
Limited menu that could use a few more healthy options.
