    The food was good. The service was terrible all around the room. The pork chop was nicely done but was very tough. The mixed vegetables consisted of three carrot spears. Best meal at our table the burger. Disappointed.

    Our evening/dinner was very enjoyable. This was our 2nd year having Thanksgiving Dinner at the Gordon Tavern. We would return again. A few things to correct: mashed potatoes were not smooth and soft, the beet etc. salad had no beets at all on it (on either of our salads), popovers were not warm--popovers must be warm when served, no butter or gravy was served so I had to ask for it-and promptly received it. What we especially liked: prime rib was so yummy, the horseradish sauce was delicious, desserts were nice, we had a booth in the corner and it was great, the wait-staff and the hostess were all fabulous and the decor is cool. Thanks for asking. :) See you next year!

    Went for Thanksgiving. The turkey was the best turkey I have eaten. Moist and flavorful. Plenty of sides to go with it.

    Awesome holiday dinner! I've never had a moister turkey or more delicious gravy. The appetizer was so filling, we had to get boxes for our meals and just nibble at the desserts. Everything tasted wonderful, and the server was very attentive.

    Not impressed. Service was very rushed, couldn’t finish a course before the next course arrived. The prime rib was very tough/the knife not sharp enough, popovers were very bland and would have enjoyed a nice roll instead. Servers were very nice. Sides, desserts and starters were good. Maybe better not on a holiday.

    We had a lovely time celebrating Thanksgiving at the Gordon Tavern. The service was amazing, our waiter Chris was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed or wanted throughout the meal. The food was incredibly delicious and well presented. The restaurant was busy and a little bit noisy but the overall experience was perfect.

    My family was in town to see my son’s theater production. We had such a lovely dinner and were offered a table in a quieter room so that we could all hear one another. We had a gorgeous meal and cannot wait to return. Such a beautiful atmosphere!

    We've dined here a handful of times and typically have an amazing experience. However, this time our entrees took over 1 hour+ with no communication as to when they were even coming. We dined after a football game, so our reservation was later to begin with but it was 11pm and we had to call it and tell them we no longer wanted our food.

    Our greeting was friendly and efficient. I was with friends for a celebratory lunch, and the noise level was never a problem. Could actually have a conversation. Food selections were interesting and tasty and server was attentive, without hovering. The lobby lights make a great statement! All in all my guests enjoyed the event…a good experience.

    The experience was very nice accept the disappointment the chef was out of the beyond burger. I found their lunch menu to be short & limited for someone eating light. I had a green salad with chicken. It was a generous portion with a tasty balsamic dressing. The chicken for me was a disappointment. It was plain, no spices & didn’t taste or look as if it had been grilled.

    Extremely poor service and place was half empty with servers chit-chatting. Appetizer order was incorrect with the server placing a plate down stating “here is your burrata. There were no tomatoes nor burrata and was the charcuterie plate. Your staff doesn’t even know what the food is. Waited over 30 minutes for the apps to arrive as it was. They scrambled and brought the”burrata” out completely cold with two crostini and about 3 full big tomatoes. Other food mediocre. We are there several months ago and were impressed. This was my twin daughters birthday celebration and big disappointment. Please work on educating your staff about the food and keeping customers apprised of their order status. Real bummer!
