    Ordered medium hamburger, came out well done. The manager offered to make another one medium, it came out mostly well done. Sweet potato fries were well cooked.

    The food is a consistent high quality and diverse enough to meet a range of tastes among those of gathered around the table. We were able to sit in the quieter back area to allow conversation. Our server was stretched, but followed our guidance and allowed us time to facilitate our conversation, which was the primary purpose of our meeting over dinner.

    First time here. Food was good. Offered great choices for me (vegan +eggs) and my friend (full on carnivore). Food was reasonably priced for todays standard. What could be better? Offer happy hour in the dining room, offer a vegan dessert option.

    Waitress couldn’t have been less engaged if she tried. Drive by service. Had to flag her down for everything. Also asked who brewed the rotating beer on tap, answer “I don’t know” and never bothered to check. Food was average

    Server was beyond rude and very impatient. Wanted to move us along and was not happy with us when we asked for more time. By mid dinner she was just no longer talking to us just randomly reaching over/in front of us putting drinks down and clearing plates. We felt very uncomfortable and most likely won’t be back to be treated that way.

    My wife ordered a Hess Select Chardonnay but was served a Sauvignon Blanc. When she told the waiter (who was very new and very nice) he talked to the bar tender who assured him that he poured a Hess Select. Luckily, Sam (an experienced waitress who we've had before) stopped by and asked how things were. We told her about the chardonnay/sauvignon blanc mix up and the response of the bartender/new waiter. She looked at the wine and agreed the color was not that of a chardonnay. She immediately brought a glass of Hess Select. I don't blame the new waiter but am concerned that the staff is not being trained properly. The bartender should have immediately poured a new glass of wine for the waiter to deliver (good customer service). In addition, the toilets in the ladies room are filthy (we have pictures that confirms this). In our opinion, management needs to pay closer attention to this location.

    Was seated right away. Service was great, food came out rather quickly and hot. My wife had the herb and garlic chicken (she said it was awesome). My mom had the chicken and penne primavera ( which she said was also good). I had wedge salad (I will say one of the best wedge salads I have had in a long time) and the beef stroganoff. The stroganoff was ok, it was a little bland for my liking but not horrible. Overall I would come back. Next time would like to try the trout.

    Fortunately we had a booth which helped with hearing our friends. It’s a wonderful restaurant and it was totally full and loud! It was a Tom’s Town night. We didn’t participate but it definitely drew a crowd. Nice menu for the event but we love your regular menu, good wine list too! Our server was very nice & helpful! She managed to not interrupt our conversation!

    The food and cocktails were good. The service was extremely slow. Was it because of staffing issues? Not sure. We were disappointed that our appetizer wasn't available (the grilled baby Brie). Our cocktails took quite a while to arrive, and our entrees were also slow. Since this was a birthday celebration for our guest it was disappointing that everything wasn't up to the usual standards of The Tavern.

    I recently met a life long friend here for lunch. We had not seen each other in 3 years. We talked and talked, enjoyed a glass of wine, talked more, finally ordered, ate, and talked and talked more. The Green Goddess egg salad sandwich was delicious! The Hess Select Chardonnay was delightful! Our waitress was very patient and didn’t push us to finish. She could tell we needed time to catch up and she gave it to us. We chose Tavern because it isn’t as noisy as some other restaurants, and we knew it had consistently good food. The Tavern was the perfect venue for our friends reunion.

    A wonderful spot for brunch!! I had the Cinnamon Bacon Waffles with Creme anglaise…the perfect symphony of salty, sweet and savory. Also a side of fruit cause I’m healthy like that. 😉My daughter had the tavern breakfast blare and everything was perfectly prepared. Husband enjoyed his monte cristo sliders as well!!

    The selection is terrific and the presentation is wonderful. The food is just fantastic, no other way to explain it. Katie, our Server, was professional, personable, and knowledgeable when asked what she thought when comparing 2 different dishes. This is a "must" for everyone and I am already looking forward to my next journey back.

    Server was Chris H. He has served us a number of times. I cannot think of one time when his service was great. The Tavern has some really great servers and we so appreciate their work and consider many at the Tavern to be “family”. Wednesday evening, we ordered an appetizer and waited and waited until our wine was almost empty then had to remind Chris we had an appetizer ordered, because he insisted on taking our dinner order before we got the appetizer and it became obvious he had forgotten to check on the appetizer or did not turn the order in? I was clear that we wanted the appetizer before our entrees arrived. We did get the appetizer first but within a very short time, here comes the entrees- of course. We were able to throw down the appetizer quickly to accommodate the arrival of our dinner. Then it was immediately apparent that my wife’s order was totally wrong and of course Chris never returned to check on is to see if we had everything and how our food was, so we had to ask a young bus boy/server trainee to go get him. As my wife got the wrong Salmon salad, she graciously said she could herself physically remove the Salmon onto her appetizer plate if he could just get her the correct yogurt salad greens (she got the kale salad in error). Of course by the time she got the correct greens and had to put her original salmon back on top, the rest of us were finished with our meal. Chris needs more training on how to deal with these type of things as it is obvious from most of our encounters, he just “phones it in” and expects to get a generous tip? All we got was……’thanks for your patience’. 🤔 Just want to share this as again, the Tavern is one of our go to spots and you all have some really good servers. The Neals

    We dine here regularly & the food has always been excellent. However, one of the specials last night was inedible - the steamed mussels. We sent them back, & they were taken off the bill. We do enjoy mussels but these were terrible. You might have the chef try some at Cafe Provence, right around the corner to see how they should be prepared. The rest of our meal was excellent.
