As always, the food was healthy, beautiful and reasonably priced. Our table was in the middle of the restaurant and not good for conversing with loud groups all around us. Disappointing. Better to ask for a booth along the edge. Service started off really slow and got better which is also unusual for Tavern. Usually they are right on the mark with impeccable timing and sense as to the pace you want to eat. Not one of our best nights out, but this place is still my favorite local restaurant for finer dining.

We've been to both the Tavern in the Village and Tavern Mission Farms and like both quite well! We don't live close to either, but family does so it's a prime dining place for meeting family. Found my new favorite dish there - the bow tie pasta with chicken was excellent! Love the spice you get with the red pepper - light dish but great flavor! Will definitely order again!

nice, quiet, relaxing dinner. our server was very attentive without being overbearing. gave us plenty of time to chill and chat with our wine. sommelier was outstanding in explaining and guiding us through the wine list. we may have found a new favorite bottle of wine... food was delicious and the portions were just right. really, just a nice casual dinner, which is exactly what we were looking for. we look forward to returning soon!

Exceeding Expectations
The Tavern in the Village is always a delight to visit and enjoy. I have never been disappointed and this week’s Ladies Luncheon is no exception. . We have ladies of all ages in our little group and it never fails to disappoint. We go all the way from appetizers, soups, combos and full meals. Every item is always served with a smile, the right temperature and always pleasant waiters. Thank you for always being perfection!

Went on Saturday night during peak business and Tavern delivered an outstanding experience with food, service and hospitality. Great wine list but don't ignore the specialty cocktails as they are not just menu filler but true well thought out creations. I had the Rye Old Fashion and even my non-brown liquor drinking wife tried it and agreed it was great. Tavern Chicken Nachos sounds pedestrian by name but were amazing with inspired ingredients and a creative presentation. The Asian Tuna Salad was out right addictive and I will struggle to try something new in future visits although there are many other choices that look intriguing. Service was efficient and friendly with a positive energy from all of the staff we encountered.

disappointed in my visit this time, Beef stroganoff was not up to standard and my guests comment on their food (shrimp dishes) was it was ok, just ok. Service was a bit slow and perfunctory . Basically as one of our favorite spots we where disappointed and felt the experience was below what we have become used to.
Doesn't mean we will not go back at all, just below expectations this time around

I went for Brunch with my wife, daughter and granddaughter. The food was average and the service was slow, we had to go get our waitress because she forgot butter and sugar and it wasn't that busy. I would dine here again if I were in the neighborhood but I would not make a special trip.

Came here on the recommendation of multiple people and was very disappointed. They messed up the eggs on both myself and my friend's order, and forgot her side that she had requested. The food was bland and boring. The only saving grace of the whole meal were the beignets. Not sure I'd give this place another try again.

Very disappointing! It was very noisy and almost impossible to talk over it. Our waiter looked and acted like he did not want to be there. No personality and no interest in taking care of us, was very evident in his demeanor .
The food was bland and quite tasteless! Dinners were not well prepared.
We will return.

It's hard to find gluten free food on the Tavern's menu, but at least they try. The salad with chicken I came up with was fine. My husband's meal also involved substitutions, and the waiter obliged. It's a friendly neighborhood place but very noisy and hard to talk.
