Food was delicious. Our server was gracious, friendly, and attentive. The atmosphere was good for adults, not so much for kids, and there wasn't a kids menu per say. Overall dinner was wonderful and I would definitely recommend for a date night

We had a great time. I wish the server was a bit better but it’s a tough job. When the table that is sat after you eats before you... it makes you a bit unhappy. No knives or serving spoons for the appetizers was a little frustrating too but everything else was amazing and sometimes servers are just so stressed, so I still feel like it was a good experience.

Very disappointing. I ordered a steak salad. The steak was was full of gristle and not edible. The server took evidence of the steak I attempted to eat back to the kitchen. They did not offer a refund or credit.

The service was outstanding, however the food was lacking for the price we paid. The sushi wasn't very fresh & only medium grade. The steak we asked for wasn't cooked well. We asked for well done & it was medium rare. I think maybe they should try harder & upgrading their food to be worth eating for the money you pay, instead of trying to look like a Posh Trendy restaurant. Wasn't impressed.

Everybody at the table asked for medium steaks. They came out rare, and the entire meal was cold. Certainly not worth the $30-40 a plate.

No recognition for a birthday celebration. Server went ghost several times. Food was good. Plain bacon cheeseburger was overcooked and had toppings on it.

It was our first time at the Tavern at Bown, but won't be our last. The menu was diverse and we found plenty of options for food (and libations) The experience was superlative especially our server Terra. She was engaging and cheerful. We plan on seeing her at the Tavern again soon.

My grandma and I had a great time out at the tavern at Bown crossing! Amaya was our waitress and she was fantastic. She timed our salads and meal and dessert perfectly so that we were able to enjoy our time together over a bottle of wine! We enjoy frequenting the tavern, being that it’s so close to our homes!

I arrived a few minutes earlier than my reservation. I asked if it was possible if I could have a booth, the guy (sorry I don't remember his name) said he'll see what he can do. I waited nothing more than 3 to 5 minutes and I was able to get the booth I asked for. It was a great night for my family and I. Thank you.

I had dinner at Tavern shortly after it opened. My recollection was that it was quiet and a white tablecloth type of restaurant. Now it is much more open, and there are TV screens giving it a bit of a sports pub vibe. That said, the food and service were absolutely excellent.

Although we had asked for a reserved low top table, they had reserved a high top table. However the hostess immediately saw how difficult that would have been for me so she gave us another table. Our food was good however my mashed potatoes were served barely warm. Our server, Bailey, was very personable and we would be back.

We have been to the Tavern a number of times and had very good food and service. Not the case this time. The service was satisfactory but our table was right inside the door so there was a lot of noise and constant traffic. The food.....well it was all over cooked. My husband asked for a medium rare steak and got a well done so he sent it back. They brought another one and it was basically raw. I had the halibut special and my fish was so over done it was dry and hard to cut. My son and his girlfriend’s steaks were also over cooked. We won’t be going there again anytime soon.

We had a business luncheon at Tavern at Bown Crossing and would recommend it based on its robust menu (sushi, burgers, salads), great service from our server (knowledgeable of their menu items and helpful with special requests) and the pricing was reasonable.

Only item that was unusual for us was the music selection. Rap music was playing and it made it challenging for us to have a conversation due to the volume of the music. Thankfully, this genre of music was not played for our entire meal.

When we arrived the table was ready and we were seated quickly. The waitress was as quick in stopping by, getting drink orders started. When the drinks arrived we ordered our food. Spinach bacon salad, coconut shrimp for my wife, and spinach salad and beef satay for me. Kim loved the shrimp, her salad was floating in dressing, she blamed herself for not ordering the dressing on the side as usual. My salad was good dressing wise, but I felt that for an ingredient in the name, there would have actually been some bacon. It was pretty small amount, in both salads. My filet satay was way over cooked, but like Kim I took the blame for not specifying how I wanted it prepared. Carly our waitress was awesome !!

I went in there with a group of 4. We got seated right away but didn’t get our drinks for at least 20 minutes. It was just water and Diet Coke. We waited for 1.5 hours for our food when the restaurant wasn’t even close to busy. The steaks were not seasoned at all. The rest of the food was decent. For the price and the wait, I definitely will not go back.

I Made a reservation for me and friend so we could have a great table. We were sat near the kitchen and a busy walk way. Customers that just walked in for dinner had a better table. I thought with making a reservation that we would get a great table.
