    We love Tavern at a prairie Village and done there at least 5 times per year. It’s a great venue with a neighborhood vibe that is upscale but not pretentious. The menu lacks imagination but most of the offerings are excellent. We especially enjoy their squash soup and salad items. Overall, the experience is always consistent and very dependable. The wait staff is on point and professional. We will return.

    This is an awesome place to meet with friends. Food and service was great! They have a Happy Hour including drinks and appetizers..........unfortunately , you needed to be seated in the bar area to get the discount! Since it was stated in the menu or website, we found out from our waiter once we were seated. Little bit of a disappointment.

    Love the Tavern! So glad to have them in our neighborhood! The only downside is that in the winter it is way too cold in the restaurant for our comfort. We typically have to wear layers and sometimes our coats! It does take away from the experience a bit.

    Loved having this place available for our small family on Christmas Eve! It was bustling with celebrations, noisy with kids (but fun), but the staff still offered its usual excellent service, food was served quickly, and was up to the usual Tavern standards. It's a very reliable place for us! We very much appreciate that the staff was willing to work that holiday evening.

    First, I wouldn’t blame my server and tipped her well. It is the problem with the kitchen. Once upon a time Tavern was a reliable place to eat even if it cared little for people with diet restrictions. A couple of weeks ago I ordered salmon with rice and spinach (GF) and the dish came swimming in sauce making the sides almost unsalvageable. This time I ordered trout with neither of the listed sauces on the food, but butter lemon sauce on the side. The dish came with everything I asked not to be on the plate and the vegetables (fingerlings, green beans, asparagus (all favorites of mine) inedible. They replaced it to agree with my order, but the vegetables were still inedible, that is, I couldn’t cut into them with a fork or even a knife and fork. It was clear that the vegetables were actually cooked sometime in the past and then grilled until they were warmed and in some cases burned. I do a lot of cooking, so this is not a surmise. It’s the last time we’ll go to Tavern.

    The back of the restaurant is cold. We were seated on back booth and I had my coat over my legs, as cold air was blowing from somewhere. It took a long time for our food to arrive as it was a busy night. Our server, Sam was excellent. The soups were tasty and fish tacos very good.

    Love this place. We were there with friends during the holidays and the restaurant was very tasteful and festive. The staff were very friendly and professional. I felt comfortable immediately. We were seated by the fireplace, which added to the wonderful ambience and overall experience. We had the Brie and the bruschetta to start and both were very good. I chose the trout and it was perfectly done. It was a great evening. We’ll definitely be back.

    Delicious dinner from a menu with enough variety to please a range of palates. My husband loved the rib eye and was pleasantly surprised by the elotes which were flavorful with just the right amount of char and heat/spice. The service was attentive and friendly. We'll be back for sure!

    We met friends for a holiday lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed the food. The noise level was high at 12:30. Next time we will meet at 1:30 to avoid the crowd. As usual, they were able to accommodate my food allergy. It is our go-to place!

    The noise level ruined our meal and for that we will not go back. The food was very good with the exception of beef stroganoff which was skimpy with meat and the noodles were not hot.
