 (New York Area)·Dined on August 22, 2016

Had another delightful night this week at Tavern 58, one of our favorites. Tho a Monday nite, it was lively and humming with diners either enjoying the ambience of the outdoor porch area, the comfortable bar, or inside in a cozy booth, which we chose for the 3 of us to have a quiet conversation. It is always a treat to try Chef Mike's specials and this night was no exception. We each tried a different special entrée, which we shared with each other, as well as a special salad. Ditto, the special dessert. What a treat! We enjoyed great service -- our waiter, an Eastman grad, now doing his PhD --- and one of the owners was on premises as usual --- very welcoming, very friendly, very professional. I totally recommend this restaurant once again -- you can relax and be pampered --- you're in good hands at Tavern 58!

While going by recent recommendations from co workers, I decided to make a reservation for a nightly dinner with myhusband ,brother (whom is a local chef) and his girlfriend . Always on the lookout for something new and different ,we thought we would give tavern58 a shot. Our waiter (male,late twenties) was knowledgeable and went through the evening specials. After ordering first round of drinks and 2 appetizers (calamari&cheese dip),our wait for drinks was much longer than expected. But our server was on top of it,letting us know that the bar was backed up and he was giving them the eye to speed things up. Shortly after finally receiving our first cocktails,Calamari was room temperature at best.Cheese dip was good although the tricolored chips definitely needed seasoning.After deliberating over our entree choices,my brothers selection, which I believe was rock shrimp with crab stuffing and risotto,came highly recommended from our server.Server mentioned that he loves the risotto and it was definitely his favorite dish.My brother was happy that he had made the decision,based on his love for risotto and the process of making a great risotto.Long story short,he said the risotto with spinach was probably the worst he ever had. Dry as a bone,no flavor as if it were made with plain water with not even salt or pepper. For 28 $, 4 shrimp with miniscule crab stuffing...a rip off. My brothers girlfriend I believe had an 8 oz fillet or sirloin,which she said was tough and chewy. The best entree on the table happened to be the cheapest,my husbands sandwich,which he said was subpar at best.We fished our meals because we were starving ,after mentioning our concerns to our server and receiving salt and pepper from him.
We were gracious for him apologizing and comping our appetizers,but we dine out looking for a good meal at a suitable price.We did not find it here that evening.

Everything was wonderful. I took my three sons and one of their girlfriends out for dinner. The service was excellent as was the food. Three of us ordered steaks, one of us ordered macaroni and cheese, and one ordered the bison burger. It was a Friday night and some people were dressed really nice while others were more casual.

Really great find!

Tavern 58 is a favorite restaurant of ours. Had a great dinner on the outside patio. Our server Marissa was just wonderful. Personable and attentive. The food was YUMMY. From the crabby burger- salmon - chipotle linguine to the peach cobbler-what can I say. Thank you for a lovely relaxing evening.

Service was excellent - attentive and accurate. The Tavern Wings we ordered were burned a bit in the fryer, making the breading bitter against the acidic sweetness of the balsamic reduction. A time constraint prevented us from sending them back. Beyond that, the other dishes served were excellent.

Loved the Selden Street Shrimp and Spinach Rissoto but although it was superb and I appreciate a smaller portion, it was a dear price to pay for four very small shrimp. My husband ordered a bison burger (we were one of the first tables there)and they were out of it! Just wish they would be a bit more on top of their game like they were back in 2013/14. Our server was spectacular! I would still recommend this restaurant.

Very attentive to the customer and very pleasant and professional. Highly recommend Tavern 58 for an evening with family, friends or business.
