Slow service, we had to ask a bus boy to get someone to wait on us after sitting for 20 minutes with no one approaching our table. Our server was friendly, but we had to find her several times throughout the night to get more drinks and place our food order. The ambiance was great and the place is beautiful with lots of outdoor seating. We will go back, but hope that the service is faster.

Made on-line reservations, upon arrival was told by hostess she would not honor the high-top seating reservation because it wasn’t showing on her computer. I showed her on my phone to which I was told I could be seated in the inside dining room. Poor attitude, borderline disrespectful if not dishonest. Overall service was slow. Was served the smallest position size of ahi tuna I’d ever seen. It was almost funny - except it wasn’t funny at all

I have not been anywhere that felt so safe! Individual hand sanitizer, cup and napkin/silverware in plastic bags and a baggie to put your mask in while you eat. The food was good but the precautions were even better!

Always a pleasant dining experience, I’m a repeat customer and keep coming back for that reason. If I had one issue is that I have not experienced the entire menu due to Covid-19 (abbreviated menu). Other than that things are always great in all areas.

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!

I arrived after my friend. I came in the door marked entrance and stood there several minutes to be told the hostess was at the exit door. My reservation was found but my friend was seated at another table. I was told to walk around and look for her. When, I refused to walk around the restaurant to look for my friend, the hostess walked me out to the patio and I found my friend. She was not seated at table 130 but was at table 49.
The server was excellent!
The blueberry “cobbler” tasted more like bread pudding. It was not good at all.

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.
