Our server was wonderful but the food was poorly cooked. The quality of the food has significantly declined over the past yr.

We love Tabernash Tavern....this was our third time! The food wasn't as good this time...for the price, one expects it to always be excellent...will we go back? Definitely! We will give it another turn....

The Tabernash Tavern was a great find on our recent trip, October 2020. All of our food was delicious, from appetizers to dessert.

Very romantic dinner. Food is very good, however it is pretty expensive. My filet was closer to medium than medium rare but it tasted wonderful! I’m more picky with meat than most I think. They have affordable bottles of wine ($30) to very fine/expensive bottles. The drink menu, dinner menu and dessert menu had a nice variety and exhibit creativity. I highly recommend it and will go back.

Innovative recipes made with ingredients of outstanding quality, always. Homemade bread, hand-crafted original cocktails, and the best wait staff in the county. Tabernash Tavern has early Colorado atmosphere, a lively but compact bar, and owners who have run several successful restaurants in the past. Make a reservation. Limited opening hours and days - check ahead.

Probably the best way for me to describe it
I thought there were too many flavors in fused in my dish
Good food but too complex for me

We’ve been here several times in the past and have always experienced good service and food. This night we had two choices for specials and we took advantage of trying them both.
Excellent lamb shank and Chilean sea bass for the specials. Both cooked perfectly. Service was good as always. We went early and the place can get busy so I think by going early we had the full attention from the staff.
It is on the more expensive side so we don’t go too frequently, but it is worth it for a special dinner.

We were seated adjacent to a group of men who started the evening out loud. As the drinks kept coming, their voices got louder and louder, to the point it was where it was hard for my wife and I to maintain a conversation. The lamb was amazing but my wife’s meal was not a hit.

I love this place! My family has had many meals there during the winter, and this was our first summer visit. Once again, it was superb. Dishes were original and tasty -- choice meats cooked perfectly and sides that bring out the best flavors. One criticism: At our recent dinner, the tuna poke could have been better. The service is quick and friendly, and the cocktails are expertly crafted. Thanks, Tabernash Tavern, for another great meal!

We had a wonderful experience at the Tavern! Being from the west coast, we have access to Red Snapper so when the waiter recommended the Grilled Snapper I was somewhat skeptical. Wow was I awarded with a beautifully grilled piece of red snapper! I will be back soon!

I would say that this place is a hidden gem. The food was pretty great and looked beautiful. The place itself looked inside rustic, like a tavern or a saloon. I did not try to any drinks, but the drink menu and the wine list looked pretty extensive. Overall a great place and easy to get to from the road.

Service and food were wonderful. However, we were disappointed to have a party of 16!! Seated next to us inside. During this time, that seems in violation of state guidance and certainly made us feel uncomfortable.

Tabernash Tavern staff went out of their way to accommodate our reservation.
We received a personal call to explain the event scheduled at the restaurant and how they would accommodate our request for eating outside. They offered us two options. I just felt they went above and beyond. And that included great, friendly service and delicious, beautifully presented food and excellent wine.

I truly enjoy the food here! My favorites so far are the Ahi Tuna and Halibut, but my son loved the pork chops on another visit. The food is so fresh and all of the flavors meld perfectly! My compliments! Alicia is a great server and I can't give her enough Thanks for always taking care of me. I have eaten here 4 times this summer.....hoping some day I will get to sit out on the patio (I know this is a big ask, as am usually by myself) but it is getting colder so might have to wait for next year. I highly recommend this place!

Incredibly over priced food. I was expecting far better options, service, and experience based on other reviews and the pricing of the menu. Overall, this place was nothing like what I expected it would be when I made my reservation.

I had higher expectations based on how this restaurant was recommended to me. The food was good, but nothing exceptional. The Mac and Cheese for the kids is blue box...which, is what my kid likes, but was $7. The server, while very good at the gig, didn't seem to care to recommend dishes. She was very kind and polite, and a hustler (seemed like she was a bit overwhelmed), but when I asked for her rec between two dishes she told me that she didn't know what I liked to eat or what I felt like eating. I will return, maybe with lower expectations, or for take-out. As far as safety with COVID precautions, they are doing an amazing job, no complaints there. Food came out tasty and at the appropriate temps. I wasn't upsold on any drinks or meals.
