This was our first time there. We went for Valentine’s Day. We made reservations months before and waited 1/2 hour to be seated. The food was great. The dining room is very nicely decorated. Our waitress was good.

This restaurant exceeds the hype. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly as you would expect in a smaller town but the food is so amazing, we order seconds to take home. Love it

Our first experience though we have sent loads of friends and family over the years. We had several issues which I have written the restaurant about...waiting for a response. A reasonable response may change our rating on a few things. Everyone at our table of four had food items come out barely warm or cool. Our waitstaff was excellent — ask for Genevieve :).

We have gone to Tabernash Tavern at least two other times while visiting in Winter Park and it has become one of our favorite places to eat. One can always count on the service to be outstanding and the food very good.

We have dined at Tabernash Tavern numerous times through the years and have always enjoyed our meal and times together there. However, our last visit on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 was extremely disappointing. According to our waiter, there wasn't enough staff on site that evening. And from there, the disappointment continued. A sample of their house wine, La Terra Cabernet was pure vinegar. You could smell it before tasting it. The beet Cobb salad was delicious which was the highpoint of the evening. Our steaks, one a filet and one a ribeye were barely prepared even though we asked for medium doneness, along with the vegetable/potato side dish. Potatoes were not edible. Plus the price was totally undeserving. Overall, we were sorely disappointed and not sure we will return. If a restaurant is going to charge the prices of the Tabernash Tavern, then those restaurants need to show up and produce a meal worthy of their price each and every evening, regardless of how many staff are on duty.

Adorable little tavern about 25 minutes away from Winter Park resort. Well worth the drive. Service was fantastic, food portions large (beware) and variety was impressive. Only complaint was that one of the steaks was undercooked, but better undercooked than over cooked. Overall, great experience!!

In the past the food descriptions always sounded better than the actual food. But they seemed to have stepped it up lately. Our New Year's dinner was absolutely perfect. The specials that evening (pork and steak) were amazing..

Food was delicious, especially the buffalo brussel sprouts and mushroom and polenta starters. One steak was cooked to perfection, while the other was well overcooked. Seasonal vegetables were flavorful and just the right portion. Cocktails were well done and reasonably priced. Overall the resturant was understaffed, an issue we have now seen on the last three visits, and larger tables received more frequent attention than small parties. The seating in the front near the bar is extremely loud, so if you are looking for a quiet or romantic evening, maybe ask for a table in the back.

Our second time there, it had been awhile since it is a little pricey. Our first time wax very good. This time it was pitiful. My steak (At $32) was terrible, a poor cut and way undercooked. My wife's seafood entrée was lukewarm. Overall a waste of $100+. We will not go back and do not recommend anyone going. You can find better value for less than half the cost.

The food was not as good as it usually is, probably since it is shoulder season. The bread was stale and the beet salad was a disappointment, I have ordered this many times and never had this experience. Old rubbery eggs, greens not great. I will need to take some time off from TT after that. Sorry.

One of the top 5 best meals of my life. This is a true gem. The restaurant is in Tabernash, CO. There's almost nothing in Tabernash, but it's close to Winter Park and Granby. This restaurant is worth the drive no matter the distance. The food was incredible. My only complaint is that I filled up on the appetizer, salad and entree and didn't have room for dessert. I will be back.

Not a lot fine dining options out there, so Tabernash pretty much owns this option. Doesn’t mean it’s good or bad but there are good choices on the menu but if you bring a child, it’s $20+ for a cheeseburger. For the adults, pretty good menu entrees but you pay for them. Wine and beer list is well above par. Special occasion and you’re in the valley, make a reservation.

I've dined at Tabernash Tavern many times over the past several years. I have never been disappointed. When my wife and I are looking for fine dining or entertaining out of town guests are best options in Grand County are Tabernash Tavern or the Ranch House at Devil's Thumb. Both are excellent with a slight nod to Tabernash Tavern.
