We had reservations and still waited 45 min ... I was not happy at all and there was no offer to accommodate us it was made to be not a big deal . Then our waiter was rude and standoffish then without warning passed us to another person to serve us at least that person was nice ... overall the service was subpar at best

One of my favorite places. The food was awesome. The tuna tartare was great and my steak was perfectly cooked. But as great as the food was, the service was even better. Benny was very welcoming and attentive. He checked in on us and made sure we were taken care of. Do yourself a favor and ask for Jason as your waiter. He is simply the best. He is entertaining and you can trust all of his recommendations. Overall a great experience.

We brought a friend from Vancouver to Tavern on Rush for a celebration dinner. The setting was beautiful and the restaurant was full. The wine selection was good and the food was delicious, however, they seemed to be short staffed. The service was terrible - waiter seemed friendly enough, very apologetic, but he forgot our order, meal was not as he explained, timing was off, they didn't check back to see if we wanted more drinks, they left unused place settings on our table and threw the dessert menu on our table as running by. Very strange.

This has had to be the best meal we have ever eaten! My mom and I are vegetarian and don't eat cheese - we ordered the anna Bella pizza and the chef agreed to substitute bacon and cheese for avocado, jalapeño, onions and pineapple😊 It already has Arugula and asparagus on it. The result was a treat!! The lemonade was average but the ambience and the patio seating and the city lights everything was perfect. Want to come back real soon!!
