Very touristy, food was just ok and my swordfish had a giant inedible fennel globe on it. Service was still amazing, but the menu is lacking elegance and flavor. I've been going here for years and just not the same.

Our server was fantastic. We had a later dinner so unfortunately most of the entrees were sold out but I understand that. Go earlier for dinner!!!

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-!

Loved the iced tea! Our server was great, kinda slow but I think she was the only one working. Tacos and sweet potato fries were really good. Wings not so much. I was an out of town visitor to the area. Overall enjoyed our lunch there.

My husband and I selected this place due to the 4.7 stars rating. My husband ordered a beer and I just asked for a glass of water since they brought 4oz glasses for the pitcher of water on the table. We ordered.the chicken wings and angus sliders. Several minutes later, the server brought a glass with a check in it and said she’d be back to pick it up when we were ready. It took her a minute to register when we told her that we not eaten yet, and my husband still didn’t have his beer. She apologized for forgetting and said she was confused. She brought the beer and wings which looked like they had been sitting under a heating lamp for a while. They were pretty dry, and had minimal seasoning/sauce on them. We love wings and never leave any, but there were 4 left not touched. The sliders came and they were extremely well done. The flavors with the bacon jam and Brie were great, but the bun was also hard on top from what it seems was likely due to sitting under a lamp for a while. The fries were hot, but had absolutely no seasoning. I would have asked for salt, but the server never stopped by to check on us until we were already done eating. Although the restaurant was not very busy, I did notice the server had another large table so maybe we were an isolated case, but neither one of us have any desire to return. It was disappointing since we don’t go out to eat very often. The server was very courteous - just clearly distracted.

The Tavern has the best food in Coronado. The entire menu is outstanding, with attention to detail on every plate. From the street level it looks like a fun bar (it is), but the food will bring you back to try the rest of the menu!

This place is awesome. Great drinks, good food, nice vibe (not pretentious but genuine). All of the staff was VERY attentive. Never had to ask for anything. Most amazing part was they took a last minute reservation for a party of 10!!! And the table was ready ahead of our reservation time. Definitely coming back.

Great server. Food a little staggered but I think that’s due to California reopening and so many people. Great place.

Incredibly disappointed. We have been going to the Tavern for years. Not sure what happened but the place went down hill. The service was horrible, the place was dirty, the bathrooms were a mess and the food was not good and way overpriced. I’m fine paying for good food but this was not good. Our server was rude and extremely unfriendly. Unfortunately we will not be back.

Came on a Monday evening. Starters: crispy chicken wings (with a tamarind glaze - really tasty and enough to share for two people), local halibut tacos (two generously portioned corn tacos - moist fish and tasty toppings), beer and house margarita. Mains: we split the baby beet salad (delicious, not overdressed, love the fresh ricotta), and we both got the airline chicken breast (super crisp skin and moist interior, fluffy mashed potatoes).
Really very good meal experience. Staff were super friendly and polite. One minor complaint: the bar staff did not pour the beer to the top of the glass. Lost almost an inch on the first beer, and probably a half an inch on the second - despite asking for a full pour. Otherwise, highly recommend for an affordable, delicious meal in a comfortable environment.
