I was not at all pleased with the service. My family and I ordered simple entrees and they took way to long to prepare. I don't know if I will return

A nice setting and good service here, but the entrees are not the greatest. Better to stick with the bar food type menu.

I have been to this restaurant before. I like the food, service and atmosphere. I just don’t like the gratuity that is added to every bill no matter the party size. I also don’t like that you can’t get a separate bill.

The food we had (burger, crab cake sandwich) is mediocre bar food. In particular, the crab cake was very mushy and seemed to contain a lot of filler ingredients and less meat. The waiter could not tell us about certain beers we inquired about and did not offer to check with anyone else who might know. The main reason we came here is to experience the outdoor dining. That aspect was fine but it definitely did not compensate for the mediocre food at high cost.

Terrible service, 35 minutes to get a drink- ordered two apps only one made it to the game after an hour the other was never delivered. One crab cake dinner was burnt and not edible. The restaurant did apologize and take the apps off the bill but we won't be returning.

We went to a wonderful birthday party at Tavola a few months ago, and had such a great time we decided to go for dinner last night (6/12/21). Well what a disappointment. It wsa packed, which was fine, as I am glad to see restaurants re-opened and people going out and having fun again. We were seated before our 6:45 reservation, and since we had a movie to go to after dinner, we ordered our salads and our meal all at the same time, thinking (and hoping) we would still be bale to get dessert before we had to leave. Our salads came about 15 minutes later, but then we waited over AN HOUR for our main course. And it was just a burger, fried chicken sandwich and 2 chicken parms! I had ordered sweet potato fries instead of regular fries which was an extra cost, and they were delicious, but there were about 10 fries in the portion. Our server did come over a few times to keep us posted on our order, but he was overwhelmed. Needless to say, we took most of our meal to go, and did not have time for dessert. Very disappointing.

Food was ok but the main courses came 5 minutes after the appetizers were served so everything was pretty cold by the time we got to eat it!
The fries were the highlight!
The bun for the brisket sandwich was way too much bread for the amount of meat.
Good selection and price for wines.

Everything, was very nice! The only thing was it took awhile waiting at the front desk! There was a small group of 3, in front of us without reservations. It took quite some time for the hostess to accommodate them. We had reservations., & had to wait awhile to be seated! Everyone was extremely friendly. Our server, was outstanding! Love, love Tavolas!

Love the ambience. Nice place to have drinks The problem is the food. The prices are very high. It's difficult not to feel ripped off. I ordered a spinach salad and added grilled chicken. First, the idea of charging $10 for salad and then an additional $7 for the chicken is ridiculous. God forbid I added salmon for an extra $12 or shrimp for an extra $14!! When the salad showed up it was in a long flat plate that didn't allow any tossing of the ingredients. And....the ingredients.......all I got was a plate of spinach with some candied walnuts and red onions. I asked for the goat cheese and dressing on the side. Seriously, one of the lamest salads I have ever gotten. If you are going to rip your customers off, at least pretend to care. Put some stuff in your salad!!!! Ambiance isn't everything. Just go for drinks.

I had two different experiences. First off, they include a 20% gratuity on all service, bar & restaurant. I had no problem with restaurant, Joe our waiter was fantastic, attentive and pleasant. The bartender was gruff and unpleasant, he seemed overwhelmed and rude. Certainly not warranting a 20% tip.

My family of five (2 adults, 3 kids) had an excellent meal here. The waitress was absolutely excellent and very attentive. She immediately greeted us and got our drink/meal orders. The food arrived well timed after our appetizers; the main course quality was good and the dessert was excellent. We had our desserts as the live music band was playing, but it was a nice change of pace - not crazy loud like some places.

I aim to come back with our in-laws.

Yesterday was the third time I ate there in the past 2 weeks. The short rib tacos had a watery slaw and the advertised "lime-cilantro salsa" consisted of nothing more than a few raw chopped tomatoes and red onion sprinkled on top. Then I had a Caesar salad with Ahi tuna which was very good, but yesterday, my broccoli was almost raw - barely blanched. The chicken and potatoes were good. And the service yesterday was sluggish and the staff inconsiderate. I know they have to clean up between shifts but they shouldn't be vacuuming and rolling up mats right next to a table of diners. Also when we arrived, we waited for 10 minutes at an empty hostess station before being seated.

Food was great. Service was extremely slow. No plates were bused from the table even after we paid. We were sitting under the tent where when the sun went down there were no lights, literally sitting in the dark. . . Until they wanted us to leave and turned ALL the lights on. Mind you this was only 9 pm. 1 hour 45 minutes after we were sat and the food and drinks took forever to get to us. And there were several other tables in the adjoining section.

I am chalking this experience at Tavola up to being short staffed. We were seated over 15 minutes before anyone even came to get a drink order (had to go ask). Getting refills was near impossible, we enjoyed ourselves but it is very obvious that staffing needs to get better.
