I wish when you made reservations on Holiday nights ie Valentine's day, they would let you know in advance that they have changed the menu just for this night. It's frustrating and irritating and puts the wait staff in an awkward situation apologizing for something they had no part in.
Just communicate these changes upon making a reservation.

Paid good dollar for what was supposed to be Wagyu beef. Steak was covered with gravy so couldn't taste the meat. We were both very disappointed.

Alecia was a very good server-too busy to be sociable. Food quality was excellent. Ambience was OK-we were in a very small table in a corner. We asked to change and were told no.

My husband and I had the Buffalo Brussels and the Kung Pao Calamari which were both delicious. The cocktails were also fabulous. We shared the Steak Zacatecas, which I understand is one of the chef's family recipes. Outstanding and delicious. The service was great and I would recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly. It's only 10 minutes from Winter Park Resort where we were staying.

Tabernash Tavern is our favorite place in the area and it rivals the best restaurants in Denver. My husband and I each had the sirloin steak with cheese and onion enchiladas and the most delicious and complex sauce. It’s nothing like anything we’ve had before and we highly recommend it. We’ve also had the halibut and the salmon and they too were incredible. The ambiance is warm and cozy and the service has always been good. We highly recommend TT!

We ordered a bottle of wine based on year and instead were poured the most current vintage. When brought to the waiter’s attention, he did check with the sommelier who’s response was something like “it takes time to update the wine list”...

TT never disappoints. Service is always great and the food is excellent. Last night they outdid themselves with the sea bass special - it was one of the best entrees I’ve had in years.

So grateful that they have stayed open during the pandemic and kept their high standards for service and food. Thanks for another great meal!

Outstanding as always.
The food is consistently impeccable over the years.
I had the bolognese last visit. I mean.. Wow. Perfectly cooked pasta, with shortrib, meatball, and sausage on top. 2 or 3 could split this entrée.

Great, attentive service as well.

Great dinner! They have appropriate COVID precautions but still make it a great time with family. Our waiter, Chris, was awesome and before he even served my steak realized it was not cooked how I requested and he took it back and then it came out perfect. The Chef the came out to meet us as well. We will be back!

We definitely prefer the a la carte menu where you pick your steak and get sides for the table. Not sure we would return unless you go back to this style.
