Danny did such a great job taking care of my husband and me. Chef Jennifer LaBlanc suggested some amazing dishes for us. The heirloom tomato caprese salad was superb, as were the Mediterranean meatballs. My husband loved the bread pudding. We enjoyed our evening during our trip to KC so much.

We go to the tavern on a regular basis. The food is always
Good…and their specials are interesting seasonal tastes.
Service and staff are always thoughtful and patient. My four year old granddaughter “likes this place”…so it is family friendly…have never gone wrong here. Pets also enjoy the outdoor dining! It does get crowded so reservations are helpful!

Tavern consistently delivers great food and service. Worth going back often to check out the weekly menu additions. My favorite place to have lunch with friends.

I had lobster my wife had Asian tuna salad. Both very good. Also had a bottle of Lan rioja which was also good.
When we checked in, we asked if there was a booth available, but were told that they had all been reserved. At least one booth (that we could see) never had anyone seated during our meal.
That was disappointing.
As a minor item, our server attempted to clear my plate after I was done with my meal, but I asked her to wait until my wife was done. We think it’s awkward to have one person still eating while the others plate is cleared. We think the server should have asked before attempting to take my plate.

It would be nice if Women at other tables would stop screaming at each other. It makes a pleasant experience into a elementary playground environment.

The service in the bar is typically superior to the dining room and not sure why? Has been that way along time. We are very good customers and the servers in the bar know us well and treat us like “family” but we don’t experience that in the dining room on a regular basis with the same servers over and over??? Just disappointing. Mgmt is always very friendly which we appreciate!

Also, cannot figure out why outside is not full open for seating on all sides?

Otherwise we love the Tavern and it is our “go too” place most of the time.

Excellent service and food. The noise level was higher due to traffic on the street and a swim meet at a local country club, not anything they could change.

Sat outside due to nice weather which may have impacted the service slightly but nothing unacceptable. Kitchen was a bit heavy handed with the pesto on the app, but again nothing unacceptable. Overall pleased with this food and staff and would recommend to anyone asking .

Chef LeBlanc is wonderful! The heirloom caprese salad was a real treat, and the beet and scallop salad was delicious. It was a thoroughly great experience

Haven been at the Tavern for a couple of years. Not a fan. Service is not attentive, items listed on the menu- not available, tables sticky=repulsive( I do not care it is a varnish issue- it is very disturbing), the food was "edible ". Maybe I ordered the " wrong thing": burger and green beans. Burger was oily and green berms were the worst I have ever had. It isnt very difficult to make. Overall disappointment .
Insult to injury waiter just brought the checks when we barely finished eating , water was never refilled. Just sad

Tavern hasn't changed. Great all-around menu and food. We love the neighborhood ambience and drive 1/2 hour to get there. I see that new menu items are coming, and do think they should switch up their menu more often.

The Tavern in PV has become one of my family's favorites. On holidays, like Father's Day, most restaurant menus feature steak, lobster, ribs, etc. The Tavern offers a variety of options for diverse dietary and picky palates: carnivores, vegetarian and pescatarian (imagine dinner at our house). My husband is a vegetarian. However, most restaurants offer a pasta dish with veggies or side dishes as his only option (he doesn't eat pasta). Most lack the imagination to create an actual entree. My compliments to the chef and staff...the food and the service are excellent!

Too loud. I wish there could be a better sound buffer between the bar and the restaurant. I love both, but when I went to actually visit with the person I’m with, without raising my voice, it would be nice for it to be quieter.

Tried a new dish--Lobster Ravioli. It was smothered with sauce making it pretty impossible to taste the ravioli or its filling. Otherwise, waitress was friendly and courteous.
