    Food is amazing. Service was great. It is extremely loud, impossible to hold a conversation. There were two of us and we were seated at a tiny table set right in the middle of the patio room. It was a really good meal but not a great dining experience.

    Overall it was a wonderful experience. The only thing that brought it down a bit was The Valentines menu didn’t specify say that the appetizers and dessert was not for one but for two. Even our server, through no fault of hers knew. Also the drink menu hadn’t been updated recently and did not have the newest specialty cocktails and was still showing some from back at Christmas time. But we will definitely be back due to the level of quality of the food and the service.

    We had the restaurant week specials. All food was very good - excellent. Salmon dish was excellent, so was the short rib. My only complaint with the short rib was that the portion, for the price, could've been a little more generous. Quality of food excellent, service good, atmosphere nice, only grade below "A" would be value, that even with restaurant week deal, the meal was a bit pricier than I would expect.

    First and foremost, the food is excellent! But I highly recommend not going when it's busy. They tried to cram in as many tables as possible and it makes for a very uncomfortable experience when trying to get to the table, trying to pull chairs out to sit at the table, and trying to get to and from the bathroom. The service itself is fine. Not horrible but not the best. It took about an hour to get our food from the time we ordered it. Even though the food was great we probably won't go back until they make some tweaks. There are plenty of other places with great food where I feel more comfortable.

    It's a great place, pricing has increased but everywhere has so don't let that be the take away. We went during the (614) Restaurant Week so the menu was shortened to accommodate for the special selection. A couple people in our party of 6 were a little sad that the things they saw on the online menu were not available, however, they found an easy substitute and were happy with it. The noise level closer to the bar and TVs were a little loud for the evening we had planned, but the staff were more than accommodating to move us to a quieter booth; even though it meant switching servers (something I try to avoid b/c of my experience in the service industry). Food and drinks were amazing. Still easily one of the best Smash Burgers in the city and the fries are always crispy and tender.

    I have been wanting to try the Tavern for a long time - luckily, we had some shopping in the area and able to stop in. We were offered a high-top or side-by-side in the enclosed patio area and opted for the latter. It was chilly outside but we requested the staff to turn on the overhead heater which they graciously did. We felt adventurous and started with drinks and whipped eggplant with crudité. This was absolutely delicious and the bread that went with it - hot and incredible. I would say a must try. Our mains were the crispy chicken sandwich for my wife (which was more than she could eat or I); and I went with the Mediterranean pasta. It did hit the spot and we went away full on all accounts. The staff was attentive but not overly engaged - which was fine for us this night. I would recommend for sure - and don't shy away from the whipped eggplant - well worth it.

    Tried it out for the first time on NYE, and it did NOT disappoint. Easily one of my new favorite places to eat. Spinach and artichoke dip, Okc smash burger, Cajun shrimp pasta were all DELICIOUS! Cocktails were well crafted, and the price didn't break the bank. Sandy's, our server, was super energetic, attentive, and knowledgeable. Will DEFINITELY return in the near future.
