The food and service were great. We recently purchased a home in Tabernash and this little restaurant is a gem. We have tried to go there every weekend we are in the mountains. Everyone said we would love it and we do!

I have be disappointed by the dinning in Winter Park and the Fraser V alley. Tabernash Tavern is the exception. Very attentive and professional wait staff, real great food, I had the traditional dish of Spain, Paella, excellent. We went back another night and ordered the same thing.

My wife and I have been to the Tabernash Tavern three times now, trying a different dish and each time and we have not been disappointed yet. We always have to get a side salad as it is our favorite! It can be a bit pricey depending on what you order but it is well worth it.

So being foodies we were very excited about trying the Tabernash Tavern. It was utterly disappointing. The food is at best mediocre, definitely NOT a place for vegetarians— the veggie burger is one of the laziest ever; the meats are cooked better and the chicken tasted fine. BUT for the value this is the last place I would recommend. The quality of ingredients are crap; the food is greasy and unnecessarily slathered in sauce to mask deficiencies— just NOT worth the price (and we don’t care about costs just like good food). So, A hard NO. Go to the Stagecoach Inn instead. The only redeeming qualities here were the ambiance and servers—- both wonderful.

We stop there whenever we can on the way to Grand Lake. The food is amazing and the service always good. I recommend it to everyone I know who is passing through the area. The menu is inspired and changes often enough that it never seems like the same thing as last time. Don't miss the appetizers.

Always a wonderful treat! The muscles and calamari were fantastic starters and the buffalo tenderloin was particularly exceptional. Must save room for the chocolate cake!

Nice place for a little drive from Fraser or Winter Park. Food was not as stellar as the ambitious menu but we had a lovely time with some friends. The server tried hard. A little surprised that he didn't seem as knowledgeable about one of our guests gluten-free needs as the menu indicated but that happens often to our Celiac-debilitated friend and she had no ill effects from any of the items that were fried in the same fryers. I'd go back... with slightly lower expectations... and be fine : ]

Excellent service though the food was very unappetizing overall. They are going for a creative menu but it was too eclectic and nothing tasted very good. Definitely disappointing.

Ordered the Argentinian Alhambra. Too much chimichurri. Dined there many times. First time I have been disappointed with my entree. They need to add a few fish options. Other guests in our party were very happy.

Food was good, I felt a little overpriced for what you got.

We had the kung pao calamari- very good and portion was good. Spicy and lots of flavor! Recommend 💥

I had a Mexican dish, it was 2 enchilada and a steak. Steak was pretty undercooked- I ordered medium it was very medium rare or rare. Otherwise it would have been amazing. Our waitress was spread thin between tables so I couldn’t catch her to fix by the time she came we were done.

My husband had the ribeye- for $50. You get a ribeye (a good marbled steak is ideal) this was very fatty and again undercooked. It came with a side of vegetables (nothing exciting) and 5 steak fries. Not worth $50...

My daughter had the Mac and cheese- it’s $7 Kraft with a side salad of greens.

I would return and try different dishes as I’m sure we just had a off experience. I do expect a knock your socks off meal for $200 for 3 people though. My recommendation is definitely go for the kung pao appetizer and the dish I got or the paella which looked phenomenal!!

Almost everything was good. One of my party ordered a ribeye that was fatty in a bad way. Tough and grizzly. Better selection of your beef will probably prevent a customer from getting a bad cut of meat.

Staff had a tough night. Nobody at the hostess stand for almost 10 minutes to be seated.

Seated and moved twice. Not sure why.

Server was ghost for extended periods of time- must have been trying to close out the night as we were the last ones to leave-
Partly because of how long they took to get us seated and served.

The TT is a great local spot, really good food, but on the night we visited, there were multiple large, very noisy groups of diners. We had a small table for two in the middle of the room, literally surrounded by tables of 6-8 boisterous diners. Glad they were having a good time, but we couldn’t carry on a conversation for most of the meal.

Food and service remains top-class. If we had any complaints, it would be of your choice of lounge entertainment. On two occasions, we have had our dining experience impacted by the guitarist. On a previous visit, we were enjoying a happy, lively conversation with some dinner guests. The guitarist walked over to our table, and chastised us for conversing at a level that effected his performance. We did not notice any nearby diners that were bothered by our "behavior". We are 70+ years old-not "party people".

A good special occasion place. Sat in the bar area about 1/2 hour after happy hour ended, it was quite noisy; would recommend back dining room. Sat next to a couple visiting and also celebrating; had a very enjoyable conversation. I think food is somewhat overpriced but good. Lot's of high priced wines but very acceptable ones in the$35-$45 range.

Really outstanding meal. The smoked mushroom appetizer over creamy grits was very good. The beet salad was very nice and large and the paella was out of this world! It had great shellfish including lobster pieces and duck confit and chorizo. Terrific sauce, it was more like a bouibasse with a rice cake on top. Delicious, a little different and an outstanding value. Love the intimate and cozy Tavern decor. Will come back for sure!!!
