It was great service. Good food. It was too cold. With open sides they should have options for those that do not want to be cold.

Very disappointing night. Food coming out was delayed and one meal came out 10 minutes before others at the table; soup was not hot; short rib sandwich was soggy and could not eat it sandwich style; waited 15 minutes for aioli for burger (got cold); blackened shrimp were pizza topping size and foul tasting.
I realize restaurants are experiencing employee shortages and factor this into my expectations but if you are going to charge premium prices you need to at least meet diner's reduced expectations.

The music was too loud. The hostess was informed & lowered it for us. We had a nice lunch, service was very good & attentive! The only problem was our table was wobbly, but waitress quickly took care of it. I would go back to Tavolas & recommend to others!

The service was very good. The atmosphere was a bit noisy for my taste. The food was very dry e.g. chicken carbonara and turkey wrap. The food came all at once as opposed to the salad coming first. It seems like a better place to have a drink at the bar and perhaps an appetizer. I will anser yes re: would I recomend to a friend with these caveats.

Our server Samantha was excellent. Friendly, helpful, and professional. Everything was great except for the grilled chicken. Each order was badly overcooked. My sandwich was so tough. I could not chew through part of it. I didn’t complain at the time because we waited a long time and that would have just added to the problem. All the other meals were good.

I’ve been to Tavola on many occasions. I usually order the salmon, because it’s so tasty, however they were out of it. I chose a chicken dish, I think it was chicken Italiano, this entree was very salty. Other than this experience, I consider Tavola a good dining experience!

While the entrees were flavorful, both meals were served “warm” and not hot. The French Onion soup looked very appetizing but was spiced with I believed to be oregano. Not what I was expecting

First of there were two reservations with my last name and I was directed to the wrong table and shortly afterwards we were at the right table.

Everyone enjoyed their food immensely. I felt the short ribs was exquisitely tasteful, along with the sides. The beef was extremely tender and succulent. I have been at your place many times ans this is the first time I experienced the short ribs so I will definitely be back.
