Our server, Kendra was the best! She was professional and yet, friendly with a lovely and constant smile. Nothing was too much trouble for her. We all felt well attended.
The food was ok but not stellar. Previously my husband and I had only experienced lunch service there.
I will give it another try for dinner. Perhaps our seafood choices were not wise.

Nice place, good service, very disappointed in the food. Brunch menu looked great with many choices. Our party ordered off the brunch menu, and all of us were disappointed. The food tasted ok but was cold when it reached our table.

A person in my party was allergic to potatoes. He ordered something and specifically asked if it had potatoes. He was informed it did not. He noticed the potatoes in his first few bites, and had to ask again, argue with the waiter about whether the potatoes were in fact potatoes, then get another dinner when it was confirmed that they were. Waiters should know the ingredients in menu items.

At the end of our meal, we had to walk into the kitchen to retrieve our server.

The food was good enough, but the service could/should be improved, in a city with other dining options (some only a few feet away).

Classy place, without going over the top. Consistently one of our favorite places. Food selections for every palate, and portions are reasonably sized. Service is always wonderful.
On this visit we were taken care of by Kenya, who was a delight.

I had the salmon, which was just OK. It was slightly warm, but not hot. It's flavor was just OK. It came with spinach, which I don't care for so I didn't eat. If there were other choices I was not given them. The rice was luke warm also. The flavor was not memorable.
On a bright side, the service was really good - very attentive.
I like Tavern so I will continue to go there. Maybe the food was mediocre because it was Monday night?

Food was wonderful - my daughter had the salmon, I had the penne pasta with shrimp. Our server, Kenya, was awesome - she was genuinely friendly, attentive (just the right amount, not hovering), and had great eye contact and a beautiful smile. Thank you Kenya!

Tavern was a great experience for our date night! The server, Chad, was awesome with his timing of when to bring the appetizer and entree. He was present enough to attend to our needs, and but also not overbearing. The atmosphere was great, although perhaps a half a notch too loud for optimal conversation. Regardless, we enjoyed it very much!

Went there for lunch, sat at a table on patio. The grilled scallop salad was excellent as was my wife's fish taco. Our first visit, won't be our last. Inside appears roomy and there is a beautiful bar with seating. Service was excellent and prices not cheap, but reasonable.

Tavern has quickly become a favorite of mine for a slightly nicer than casual dinner. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad meal there! Normally I’m not much of a salad person but their Grilled Sea Scallops salad is so delicious!

Not the best experience at Tavern. We were celebrating a birthday and I asked (when I made the reservations) if they did anything special for birthdays, which they said they did, just mention we were celebrating a birthday and the hostess said she would make a note on our reservation. Our waitress wasn't very friendly or attentive for our entire stay, and when we mentioned we were celebrating a birthday, she said "Happy Birthday" and that was it. The food was not bad but nothing to write home about (my salad had seen better days, the lettuce was not fresh, hardly any dressing, etc). We were looking forward to a nice evening out, and it was a bit disappointing dining experience.

Table was under an A/C vent which made for a chilly meal. We complained to the server but she did not resolve the issue.

Chad, our server, was personable, attentive, but not intrusive. The booth seats were comfortable and private. I've been to New England many times, but the Tavern's clam chowder ranks as one of the best. We split a cherry cobbler made with gooey cake, FRESH cherries and premium ice cream. Oh. My.
