As always the food and service were impeccable. Our server was unobtrusive as he refilled beverages and checked in. This was a business lunch and our server did not make us feel rushed. Truly great!

As usual, food & service were very good. Our only concern is the noise level - one person in our party is hard of hearing, which makes conversation much more difficult.

We visited this restaurant during KC restaurant week. The entire experience was amazing. The food and service was excellent. I will visit again and I will recommend it to others. Thanks for everything!

My wife and I had dinner here for the first time and we were very pleased. The service was exceptional and the food was very good. Being our first time we did not know what to expect but we were very pleased with our "date night" experience!

We went out for dinner at Tavern during Restaurant Week so it was very busy. We did have to wait a few minutes, even with our reservation, but it was only 5-10 minutes. Our meal was AMAZING! So delicious! The blackberry demi-glace that accompanied the perfectly cooked filet mignon was wonderful! Highly recommend!

The food was delicious and there were many great sounding options on the menu to pick from. And the service was outstanding. But the drinks are pricey for the food/atmosphere and it was a bit too loud for ongoing conversation. The food and service is enough to bring me back, but not sure it will be for date night next time.

It was a cold night, but we were welcomed warmly for our first visit. We had a reservation and got seated right on time. The service was outstanding and the wait staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs and requests. The food was very fresh and tasty. The hummus appetizer was plentiful and delicious. We had the crab cake sandwich, beef stroganoff and steak salad. I would recommend any of these. We will be back to try some of the other dishes.

I’ve been to this restaurant many times, mainly because it is convenient to where I live; however, the overall quality level has declined to the point that I will hesitate to return in the future.

The Tavern menu is predictable and rarely changes. Even the “specials” are predictable. Boring, people! The overall noise level can be difficult, as well.

Truly healthy options are limited, and preparation of said options is ill-considered. For example, for dinner I recently ordered my go-to dish, the salmon salad. The greens were not fresh, having been “prepped” (so the waiter told me) early that morning. This means that the chopped greens, which were not of first rate quality to start, were sitting for many hours in the fridge. By the time they arrived at my place, they were wilted, degraded, and tasted as though they’d been soaking up beet juice for hours. The portion of salmon on top did nothing to change the fact that the salad itself was poorly prepared. Needless to say, I sent it back to the kitchen.

IF I go back, I guess from now on I will have to send a special request to the chef to prepare my green salads freshly and from scratch. It seems an inconvenience for a regular customer to have to do this, don’t you think?

We haven't eaten at this restaurant for quite some time. After this dining experience we remember why. First, the chef was unwilling to make a simple accommodation for a relatively simple side dish. Second, the Panko shrimp was a disappointment. This could have been a spectacular entree except that the chef chose to use smaller shrimp - jumbo shrimp would have done the trick. Finally, no manager stopped by the table to inquire about our satisfaction with the meal. I didn't see a manager stop at any other table either. Needless to say we won't be dining at this restaurant again.

Quite loud and a bit difficult to visit without leaning in and over table. Someone with us really liked the filet mignon. My Asian chicken was a bit oily and had too many brussel sprouts rather than nice mix of veggies. The benefit of loud setting is that people nearby cannot hear your conversation.
