We understand that there is a labor shortage, but service was truly underwhelming for the caliber of this restaurant. We go often and were disappointed. We will be back because we love the food and the wonderful location. Hoping the service can get back to what it used to be.

Went for brunch, everything was delicious and the service was amazing. Everyone in my party was extremely satisfied. We went for a birthday and were given dessert and a small celebration. It was great.

Had a high top table close to the open window wall. There was a continuing annoyance--a pigeon or two crawling around under our table or flying around!!! Staff said it happens "all the time" and were trying to shoo them away with serving trays! I have been going to Tavern since it opened--sat outside, inside in first floor bar area (where we were last night) and upstairs. NEVER experienced this distraction in any previous visits

We got sick off the salad. We sent it back after a few bites because the lettuce did not taste right. Very disappointed!

It was so noisy outside and tables so close it wa very hard to talk. When I reserve they say you cannot request outside. Then when we get there they say we should have asked for outside. A wonderful young lady Tamara found us a table, remembered we needed a band aid. She was over the top helpful.

We were able to enjoy the outside table setting on a beautiful Chicago early fall day. Jesse was our waiter and did a fantastic job. He was professional, pleasant,and a joy to get to know.
We had the lobster roll with french fries and the whitefish lunch entrée. Both were fantastic I would highly recommend them.
We look forward to enjoying future lunch or dinner.

The bees were bad while we were eating dinner and the customer was extremely allergic.

All other aspects of the dinner were very enjoyable.

I wish I could remember our server's name as she was OUTSTANDING. It was a very busy Sunday afternoon and she worked SO HARD to keep all her guests well taken care of...not just our table but the surrounding tables. We needed to get a table switch, mid-meal, as there were a lot of bees around our specific table (which was outside). She handled it like a pro and was beyond gracious and professional. A true example of a great employee. The brunch menu is excellent and the food came out hot and delicious. I highly recommend.

Waited 30 -45 mins before we could order appetizers. Even that we had to ask who our waiter was because no one showed up after we were seated by the host. The waiter was nice, but very loud. Kept screaming like we were at a ball park. Appetizers are small and very pricy. So is the meal. Overall ok experience, nothing memorable other than the loud server and food being over priced.

The service to start wasn’t great - we were asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside and once we decided told us we couldn’t choose. But once we sat down everything was great! Pasta dishes were incredible!!
