I went to Tavern 29 for an early dinner, and had a fantastic experience. The hostess was extremely welcoming, and sat me in a nice cozy booth in the corner of the restaurant. I had the seasonal salad to start, which was fresh and delicious. I then had the lobster roll with the parmesan truffle fries - it was out of this world. I had a piece of the chocolate tuxedo cake to finish, and it was excellent. My server Vanessa was absolutely awesome and the prices were most reasonable. I look forward to going back.

It took 30 minutes for the server to finally come to our table and take our orders. We had to call at least twice for someone to serve us.
When the food came, they said they had no more knifes (how are you supposed to eat your food without being able to use one?!). We had to wait 10 minutes to get knifes and by then our food was already cold.
I was looking forward to checking Tavern 29 but after my experience in it this weekend I unfortunately wouldn’t recommend it and I’ll definitely not go back.

Went to Tavern 29 with my boyfriend for bottomless brunch. The service was terrible. They seemed to only have one waitress on the rooftop who was taking care of all the tables, so the service was insanely slow. It was especially annyoing because we were paying for bottomless drinks, but half the time our glasses were empty. Our appetizer came out quick, but our entrees did not come out until 2 hours after we sat down. All the customers were annoyed by the service, people were walking up to the bar to ask for their waitress and raising their hands for service. However, the food was really good and the ambiance of the rooftop was really cool, but I think you can definitely find something similar or better.

Our waitress/bartender on the patio was awesome! She really made the night fun. We were there to celebrate a birthday and she was really accommodating even though we were all a bit scattered. The outside patio is really nice and the food was great. Would definitely recommend it.

The staff was nice and the food was okay. We ordered an appetizer which came out after we were basically done with our dinner, they didn’t even offer to cancel it or give a discount. The soda was flat and they gave us like shot glasses to drink our water out of.

Nice place
Music was a little loud
Great drinks

We had to be moved to a different table despite making a reservation which is understandable but was a minor inconvenience

For the egg scramble it was an overwhelming amount of house fries and little egg scramble even tho it was the main dish

I had my birthday here at Tavern29. The staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. Tables are spaced out so you don’t have to be too close to anyone, and servers took precautions for cleanliness. Our waitress was also very friendly and made my birthday feel special! Definitely would come back and recommend to a friend!

We were looking forward to trying this restaurant. We had a 7:45 reservation and we were surprised, since it was dinner hour, that the music was blasting and the bar crowd was loud and in full swing. Looks like a fun place for drinks but too noisy for dinner. Food was good though,

So accommodating - made reservations for Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend and had originally been sat upstairs where the DJ booth was - it was loud and upon request - we were immediately sat in another section of the tavern in an amazing semi private booth! The food was delicious and they had a generous beer and cocktail menu! We will be returning!

Great food, great atmosphere. It’s definitely loud inside and we got stuck at a high top wobbly table with uncomfortable stools for seats. Overall, better for a young crowd but worth the delicious food and cocktails.

The food was good, once we got it.. however our server took our order, but never put it in and then left at her shift end without telling us. We had to go up to the bartender and ask where our food was and she had no idea we were even there. Absolute worst service

Horrible, horrible experience! Made a reservation for 8pm on a Friday night, showed up on time and the hostess told us “you can go upstairs for bar seating, we don’t have any open tables. Sorry, there was a glitch in our system.”
Of course, there were no open bar seats by this time. We came back down and told her that and asked for a table and she rudely explained there were four parties waiting and we’d be fifth in line (about an hour wait). We ended up leaving instead.
I’m appalled at the hostess’ rude behavior and more so, at the fact our reservation was not upheld. I would not recommend this restaurant.

We actually ended up not staying to eat. I came here with my daughter on Thanksgiving and arrived a little early to sit at the bar for a bit first. Based on other reviews this place sounded very good. But we immediately got turned off by the raunchy offensive music that was playing. That isn’t at all music I care to listen too when I go to dinner. The bartender was inattentive and once we decided we weren’t going to stick around for dinner it took me forever to get her attention to pay for the one drink I had. It was a shame because it was not at all like I pictured it would be.
