    The beef in the sliders was good but more on the well done side than it should be. The shrimp ceviche was excellent but rather small in quantity. The Ginger Sage cocktail was superb. The Malahat Ginger Rum is hard to beat. The chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream was excellent.

    We were in Coronado for a waterpolo tournament on Father’s Day weekend and Sunday we had a 4 hour gap between games. I looked on Open table for the Tavern for a reservation for 6 at 12:30, no problem finding a table for 4 adults and our 2 17 year old daughters. Service, food, and drinks great beer selection and the wives enjoyed their homemade sangria. Food was delicious as we had 2 Mac N Cheese to share appetizer and main course we all had 2 pot pies, 2 grilled fished tacos, sliders, and a chicken sandwich. Everyone loved their food. We will absolutely be back again and again

    Ambience of restaurant was great—reminded us of an East Coast pub where we are from. Loved the food. Would probably like a little larger portion of the chicken pot pie; but kids portions were very big and good for older kids.

    When looking in an area like Coronado you often feel like the value just isn’t there. The prices tend to be higher than usual and the food average at best. The Tavern was an exception with a menu full of options for everyone. Exceptionally to note is the kids menu which had options like a cheeseburger, salmon, steak and fries and cheesy macaroni. This is a great option for families to take a break from the beach and enjoy being a family.

    Very nice night out with girlfriends. They gave us a big table behind the front door, sort of a semi private space that worked out so great. Service was very attentive and never made us feel rushed. Food was good, drinks were good, no complaints!

    We enjoyed our meal very much. The service was great and our server was very knowledgeable. We ordered fancy drinks and my cousin didn’t like hers and she liked mine better. The waitress was able to provide a new drink to my cousin and that was really nice. Service was great and food yummy. The server was flexible with our ordering and substitutions. The decor was cool and glasses unique. Ladies rom was clean and salsa decorated very nicely. We would surely return.

    The food was average, inconsistent with quality, overpriced, small portion sizes, and the service staff was inattentive and we felt likewe were putting them off. We will not return for a meal, might be a good spot just to grab a drink, don't waste your time trying to get a good meal there, go somewhere else.

    The food was bland. The food took forever to come out and all we got were appetizers. The ranch was horrible!!! And the price for what we got, unreasonable, too $$$$ for not enough food that did not taste great. The service was great when they came around, but I had to wait for a long time for anyone to come by with anything.

    I like the restaurant and hope that as all of the struggles that businesses are facing get better, so does this restaurant. Unfortunately, it felt like they are cutting corners in food quality and portions. We would go for a drink and an appetizer as we love the cool tavern feel, but would likely would go elsewhere for a full meal as things have changed drastically since we ate here just 4 months ago and had a wonderful, filling meal.

    The ham and cheese quiche has no equal in California. It is perfect and I always have it for breakfast or lunch when I go there. Servers are friendly and efficient. Three lady owners are there most of the time and are to be commended for their high standards as to cuisine. One of them is Tartine's baker. Her bakery treats are excellent. The Lemon Meringue tart and the Pavlova are my favorites. On the other hand their Chocolate Chip cookies are great particularly when warmer up a bit. Tartine is my favorite restaurant in Coronado!!!

    Came for Happy Hour (HH) anniversary dinner before sunset beach walk, seated 15 minutes before HH ended. Hostess was great, gave us a lovely open air window table. Said still plenty of Happy Hour to enjoy, so no rush. We were given Lunch menu to order from. Dinner menus also provided for future consult. Server saw us assigned to his area, ignored us at bar, arrived at 2 minutes to HH end, grabbed the lunch menu from my hands, said that was over, too late for him to get to the kitchen to get in order, and told us dinner only from now on. I explained we’d come for HH to try a light, early anniversary dinner but he persisted, explaining they didn’t even have a real HH menu-he’d tell us the items verbally (then excitedly rattled them off) but he said he wouldn’t put in an order, as it was now too late. I mentioned I’d seen him watching our table from the bar since we were seated. He explained he was letting us look at the menu(?!). It appeared to me as if he waited long enough for the clock to run out and the menu to flip to dinner time. He was joyfully indifferent and indignant. As if that wasn’t enough to kill the experience, we decided to have a drink as we had already had a bus person bring us water, and had caused the need for the table to be Covid cleaned (not that I saw any of that going on). Server was asked to provide savory/salty drink recommendations-nothing sweet or sugary-he recommended fruity margaritas and a honeyed drink. The women’s bathroom wasn’t well kept (dirty sink, TP scattered across floor, overflowing super small trash), is dark, and stall has a huge, heavy, impossibly large door that opens inward and forces you beside the toilet tank and bowl to close the loudly squeaking metal door. Super awkward and unpleasant (at least for me). We had a tap beer and left as soon as possible. Ended up as walk up patrons at Hotel Del Coronado beach bar, where we happily enjoyed great service, food and outdoor ambiance deserving of special occasion.
