    I love going to the Tavern. Their cocktails are amazing and if you don't see something on the menu - just ask! The food, per usual, is delicious. Highly recommend the filet mignon tacos or chicken pot pie!

    The service is exceptional! I love the ambience of this place! It’s casual and comfortable and also very unique. The food is delicious! The servings are quite small and the prices are not inexpensive. But overall it’s well worth it! It was our anniversary and our server brought us each a glass of champagne on the house. Very nice!

    The service was good and the food was good but serving size was small for the price. Although we are on Coronado island so wasn’t sure what to expect. I would recommend the place as it wa overall a positive dining experience.

    Consistently good! Food is well prepared and presented. Ingredients are fresh. Prices are moderate. Desserts are great, particularly the iron skillet chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream. Cocktails are notable. Specifically the "Ginger and Sage" made with Malahat rum (distilled right here in San Diego) is outstanding! Right now, probably the best restaurant in Coronado.

    This was our 2nd visit there. All the times we have visited Coronado we have never been here. It was fabulous. The food was creative, not bar food you’d think of as fried. Anything but that. I had the chicken pot pie both times. The roasted beet salad. My husband had the salmon one time and the hamburger the second time. Both he said were great. This is a much. Good beer and wine selection. And it appeared to have some good mixed drinks as well. You wont regret your visit here. Make a reservation. You do have to give a credit card…which was no problem. Both visits I made reservations a day ahead. Wish they were in the Phoenix area. We’d be regulars.

    Delish! We really enjoyed our dinner and the service was exceptional. I believe our server was Glen and he was fun, friendly and efficient. The tomato basil soup was quite flavorful and the cheese bites were yum. The fish & chips was spectacular and the salmon fresh and tasty. It was fun sitting outside watching the foot traffic. This will for sure be a repeat!

    Love The Tavern! It is consistently a great choice for casual cocktails and dinner. The food is always delicious, and their cocktails are creative, delicious and pretty to look at. It was fairly noisy in the restaurant because it was full of people and several small, loud children which isn't usually the case when we have previously gone. Parents with screaming/crying babies should be proactive in soothing or taking them out, but that is not the restaurants fault. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for good cocktails and more upscale pub food. On a side note, our waiter was incredibly attentive and I applaud the whole staff for even being at work in todays 'climate' of a meh work force.

    The food was good but the service was terrible. The waitress was not friendly and took an hour to take our order.. the place had a great setting and food but the service left a lot the be desired. They also were out of a lot of options which apparently happens often on Sunday.

    Very disappointing; we come often to Tavern love the place , food , and most of all the ambiance. Today our sever Daniela was horrible, from the onset at check in. She led us to a table, we had requested a booth, upon us requesting a booth, she literally exhaled and walked us over to one. As she sat us down.. she then went to a waiter and pointed to us… don’t know why… Next , there was only two tables in restaurant, yet the food arrived late and had been sitting. Hot food comes from the kitchen, she was on her phone, the food arrived cold! Finally as we were one of two tables , she did not bring out the beet salad, and charged us for it! I stayed the fact we never received the salad her response was Oooh… not an apology. Very disappointing service we are regulars, this is not the first instance either. We had left the prior experience, to everyone has a bad day ; however in her case no excuse! We will also be yelping a horrible review. Please Daniela you need to work on your people skills-!
