My brother and sister in law took me out to dinner at Tavolas. We sat at a table that was inside but near the open air section so we had the best of both worlds. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive and took good care to see that our needs were met. The food was excellent. My sister in law and I had a chicken dish that was good to look at and delicious. It was moist with a special sauce and also had red peppers, broccoli, roasted potatoes to add to the flavor. My brother had French onion soup and a turkey wrap that he really enjoyed. It was a lovely time and we definitely will be back.

For the past year or so, I've been scheduling lunches for a great group of workmates to meet at Tavola for lunch. We are now retirees and Tavola is a nice, central spot to meet. Folks have come from as far as Atlanta and Cape May to join us, and we all agree it is worth the trip. Looking forward to our next delicious meal with you!

The staff checked on us, was friendly & willing to turn the heat lamp on for our lunch date. It was chilly due to wind but the cover over the patio made it nice despite the wind and the view was lovely.

Excellent service. COVID 19 precautions were superior. Food was acceptable. The thin crust pizza was excellent. Burgers were good but not outstanding. The whiskey burger while good had no flavor of whiskey or any special seasoning. The onion rings were well below acceptable. They were hot and crisp but looked like supermarket cardboard versions. Certainly were not house made. Drinks were well made, glasses chilled and wine list was well thought out.

After being seated on the pretty patio overlooking the golf course, things went downhill fast. We sat there for thirty minutes before our drink orders were even taken. Drinks were so full of ice and watered down, they barely had any taste. The shrimp Lejon were the highlight of the meal and delicious. Cold fries, dry burgers and greasy onion rings rounded out our disappointing and truly bad meal.

Very disappointed - Not very mask compliant ! The bar was open & very few people walking around - to the restrooms , etc had on masks !
The food was average . The saving grace was the staff, sweet , but most young & not concerned with the “maskless “ guests. Seems like a great place if you’re a college student looking for a night out !

I made a reservation as required. I arrived early waited ten minutes to check in with hostess. Waited as the hostess made reservations for those in line without a reservation. Was seated after ten minutes and those who were seated after me were waited on. The waitress never greeted table and I had to go to the bar to purchases drinks. Still waited for a waitress and once one came received attitude because we weren’t ordering as wanted to leave due to poor overall experience/ service. No one acknowledged until we were leaving. There were three people hostessing yet a line out the door and a wait.

The server was awesome but the manager was awful. We were a party of six and she made up a rule that we could not receive separate checks. Her reason was it was too much for the server. We could still pay with separate cards but just not have separate checks. Makes no sense at all. The server still has to type in the same food. She wasn’t even properly wearing a mask. She walked around with her nose uncovered throughout the evening. Her lack of customer service made this otherwise great experience unpleasant.

The food and service were good. It was loud and busy in the restaurant but that didn’t both me.

I was really confused about why they put all of the silverware and glasses in plastic bags on the table. If it’s covid related, we know through research that social distancing, masks and washing hands are more effective than this bag thing. The bags are just wasteful and it’s scary to think how many bags this restaurant wastes on a daily basis.

This was our first time back at Tavola. We understand that they are still trying to accommodate as many people outside safely, and to keep people warm, but the lack of view and limitations on table selections due to using Opentable was a little disappointing. But we realize as the weather warms up at least the barriers to overlooking the golf course will hopefully be taken down.

It’s not the waitresses fault, more so the establishment it self. They need to hire more people. It feels so chaotic like a bomb went off because there are only a few waiters and they’re running all over the restaurant. Our table ordered an appetizer, the fried ravioli and we just didn’t receive it. Because the waitress was so overwhelmed she forgot to put it in. I also scheduled this place because it was my partner’s birthday. I put down that the occasion was for a birthday and I even put it down in the special requests. Nothing was said or done for his occasion. I don’t understand why it’s an option if nothing was going to be done for his birthday. We probably won’t be going back unless we hear that they’ve improved.

We dine at TAVOLA’S several times a month. The food is outstanding, we always have wonderful servers with lots of personality. This past Saturday evening they had music during dinner (6pm)that was so loud that we could not talk to our friends of whom we invited because we enjoy TAVOLA’S so much. We did ask the server if they could ask the band to lower the volume, however they kept playing at the same level. All 6 of us felt the band was over the top too loud and we were sitting a good 75 feet from the band. I am not sure I will return for dinner on a Saturday night. I hope management takes this into consideration.
