Poor food poor value. What a disappointment after such excellence in the past
Food was outstanding and service was excellent.
Just wasn’t impressed with the food this visit. :(
Great food and good service. The only room for improvement would be on my old fassioned. The drink came to me like someone had made their first drink, not what a $16 drink should feel like. It was warm on arrival with thin ice cubes all but melted by my third sip.
I have eaten here a number of times over the years and have enjoyed the meal on each occasion, but the rising cost has priced it outside my budget. The food was very good tasting but either the portions were small or the price was quite high. If you are comfortable with a $52 steak, this is your place. We ordered the new short ribs menu item for $42 that we hoped to share. the main course came to our table somewhere between 2 and 4 oz and the sides were tiny. I'm not a big eater, but the server never mentioned it might be a bit too small to share. Oh well. Live and learn. I'd opt for the burgers if I decided to dine there again.
This was a special occasion for my wife's birthday which was given to them in advance. Should I have expected more?
thank you very much
great again as always
we stop in everytime we are in the tabernash area
Staff was very personable. Great ambience! The food was stellar as always.
We dined at Tabernash Tavern over Spring break. The restaurant has a fun and cozy mountain atmosphere. I was pleased with my children’s meals, Mac and cheese and sliders. They were reasonably priced and the kids enjoyed their meals. My husband ordered Steak Mazatlan and I ordered Paella. The waiter raved about the steak dish. The cut of meat was poor and there was a lot of cheese. The paella was just ok. Probably not the best dish to order in a land locked state. Both meals were incredibly overpriced for the quality of the meal. If I could order all over again, I would stick to a burger!
Everything was delicious. We ordered a few appetizers, which were enough for a full meal and a great price. The main course was a little over priced based on taste, okay, but nothing amazing.
Yum! The food was 5 Star! Great wait staff...so delightful:))
Eclectic interesting menu. Food is very good and portions are huge. We had lamb rack, steak and scallops. Starter meatball of game meats was outstanding
This was my first visit and I was impressed with the menu, the portions and the amazing tasting food. I will definitely be back
But why is there bacon on the creme brulee? So good except for that.
Steaks are phenomenal.
Paella portion used to be bigger.
Everything is awesome in general, though.
Wedge Salad was brown core of iceberg lettuce. Chicken dish was very poor - tried to cover up overcooked piece of chicken with blanc cream sauce. Steaks mediocre. Very disappointed - especially at these prices!
We won't be entertaining guests here again anytime soon.
For the high prices for food, one would expect top notch service. The food was good (not spectacular), but service lacking. A very dirty bread plate was set on the table. We had to ask for bread and drink refills, food came out without add-on (we had to walk through the restaurant to find waiter), and waiter was extremely loud.
We had a fantastic evening. Roxie our server was over the top, all of of choices were so delicious we were trading bites. The noise level was reasonable, we were able to converse and thankfully no background music. Lovely time, great food. We will return for other celebrations ... it’s a bit pricey for everyday but was worth it for an occasion.
Arrived on time and was promptly seated. But then took 10 minutes for a server to come to the table. Another 5 for a glass of wine. Brussels sprouts were soaked in oil and soggy. Cal Imari was also loaded with oil. Beet salad was good but had few beets. Disappointed.
Tabernash Tavern is a real goldmine in the small Colorado town of Tabernash. Great for a nice dinner—we have been there for years & it’s always great!
Good paella. Prompt and courteous service.
Food has gone downhill drastically. This used to be my favorite in the area but I won’t go again. Poorly prepared, over cooked over salted not done to temp poorly presented. Waiter was great.
We've been to the Tabernash Tavern previously. My husband has ordered the ribeye before and it's been amazing. However, this trip, his $49 ribeye steak was very mediocre - tough and gristly. He mentioned it to our server - said the steak was prepared well but it was a poor cut of meat. She said she'd mention it to the kitchen but the fact that his meal was poor was never acknowledged by anyone at the restaurant. Great atmosphere and we'll be back - but will be sure to order from the bottom end of the menu. Save your money and order a burger.
Very few gluten free options - nice place but not very accommodating in general. Our experience food is inconsistent. Wait staff not very friendly in general. We like it but don't love it.
Good menu w interesting choices. Lamb was very good. Service ok. Little pricey for quality.
We place a high value on quality food so choose eating out carefully albeit sparingly. It is a pricey meal that we would reserve for special occasions but the food is quite carefully prepared, creative menu and good selection of wines. Hard to find high quality food in Winter Park so worth the drive of 20 min to get away from mostly mediocre choices if you're willing to spend a minimum of $60 per person for glass of wine, main course only and tip.
The Tavern is now our go to spot when we ski Tabernash. We have been passing it for years and never really noticed it until a friend told us to try it out. Good food, generous portions, and nice service..Did I mention the martinis?!
Great food, a bit pricey for a family of 5, better suited for a night out with just the wife. Still, food was amazing and they don’t skimp on the portions. We’ll be back next time we’re in the area.
Excellent food & service! We visit every time we are in town and are never disappointed.
Our meal was amazing as always! First time I have had the French onion soup. One of the best I have tasted. The kitchen always turns out great dishes
Great food, wine and appetizers! Nicest restaurant in the Winter Park area!
Wonderful selection of flavorful food. Excellent service and quieter than Deno’s.
No modifications to food...what???
Nothing "normal" on menu...everything has some goofy flair. Mac * Cheese had mushrooms...you kidding me? Over priced eclectic food without any customizations.
Service that is worth a tip, IMHO, requires: water, coffee etc., never require having to ask to be filled, the staff know the menu because they have tasted the food, they move in and out without making a scene, they pull plates as needed and are friendly and professional. They do not, however, reach across your plate to fill drinks or pull plates and this was the only fail on our meal.
Great food but way too big of portions... downsize portions and then price
Excellent food, drinks, and atmosphere!
Unexpected high-quality restaurant in a town of 400. The menu was very creative, with everything from the mandatory Colorado staples of burgers and steaks to octopus. Everything was beautifully presented. Atmosphere was "mountain casual". The dining room is small, and it was filling up by the time we left around 7, so reservations are a must.
Last winter we went here while on a ski vacation and loved it, this year not so much. While the food was delicious, everything else was not. We expected more from a $500 dinner tab, and when I say more, I mean no catching the wait staff rolling their eyes while walking away from our table, numerous screw ups on what was delivered vs. what was ordered, actually knowing what the vegetable was(it was carrots, not spaghetti squash). Also, it was a Monday, so it wasn't like the restaurant was overly busy. Clearly they don't want our business, so we won't go back.
Our steaks temps came out flipped flopped.. they were not interested in fixing the on that was well done but they fixed the rare one.. they cooked it more.. however my sons steak was well done when it should of been rare.. it was late at night and close to closing but we expected more☹️
My husband and I discovered Tabernash Tavern four years ago during our first weekend away together. We were very impressed with the food and service that visit and really looked forward to going again; we certainly were not disappointed this time and consider it a very special place. One of our favorite things to share is a charcuterie board and theirs blew us away!
