Food was terrible. They did not have the usual complimentary bread choices, and the bread they did have was stale and terrible. We had corned beef and cabbage dinner since it was st Patrick’s day. Incredibly fatty and chewy, cabbage wasn’t cooked and potatoes were incredibly bland. Tavern on Rush has completely under-delivered and made mistakes on our orders the last 4 times we have been guests. Meats cooked incorrectly and entrees not being served as described.

You can’t go wrong with this place. Great steak, wine list, and other options to choose from if you are feeling something different. I had the tuna avacado tartare and it’s bomb 👌

Everything was spectacular except the noise level. There were quite a few tables with parties of at least 10-20 people.

The food and service were top notch and we were lucky to get a booth for just the two of us.

Benny and Jason know how to take care of guests! The food was phenomenal and the service was fantastic. I have been there so many times, I have lost count. I travel all over the country and Tavern is my favorite restaurant. Jason is my go to server. He is the best. And Benny always checks in on us and makes sure we have everything we need. Do yourself a favor and go to Tavern. And be sure to say hi to Benny and ask for Jason. You will not be disappointed.

The food and service were exquisite. "Q" was our server and he was fantastic! He turned a great meal into a wonderful dining experience for my wife and I. We had a table in the window so we could watch the energy of the city while we dined and enjoyed the food. The Tavern on Rush is always a wonderful experience.

Our second experience. Went back because the first was outstanding. This one left much to be desired. Valentine’s Day crowd and limited seating. I made reservation way in advance. Tight quarters for dining.

Went for dinner February 9. Went well, until the entrees arrived. That’s when they tried to sicken a member of our party with absolutely raw pork. Does the cook know what an instant read meat thermometer is? Does he/she know how to use it?
Rest of evening uneventful.
Left. 15% tip. Waiter obviously upset. Hint: perhaps he should be more upset with the cook than the clientele. Perhaps he could learn to apologize to the clientele. Perhaps he should bring the recooked food back to the table instead of sending the busboy back with it. Perhaps he could learn how to comp something for the kitchen’s error. Or, perhaps he should find a different profession.
Not sure if this is SOP for this restaurant, but will not return.
