Food was ok. Server was efficient, but the food was very slow in being served. I think the restaurant could be great with just a few minor adjustments
A good solid spot to visit. We came for a small birthday gathering and they helped to accommodate for that.
However, they have shortened their menu which unfortunately took off the lasagna. The reasoning was because they wanted to separate themselves from their sister restaurant. That was abut odd to me but nevertheless we still stayed. The sauces have also changed to the point where they were all thin. At our table, we had the bolognese, Alfredo, and tutto mari. The bolognese and Alfredo were so thin and a bit bland. They did make for great leftovers later when the sauces were left to thicken up.
They had 2 large parties but they were still pretty attentive for our party of four.
Overall pretty good
The food is always amazing which keeps me coming back!! Service was friendly, but not very on top of things especially for a restaurant that wasn’t full. In no way acknowledged that it was my birthday which isn’t required but it was surprising that they didn’t.
Regarding the service, the restaurant was understaffed. Our waiter ran his tail off, but we waited a lot during the evening. No fault of the waiter.
very good service-wish they would replace the veal with something else.
Please be aware that Tavolo V won't guarantee your reservation time. We booked a reservation so we can eat there prior to our show at the Pageant. When we arrived, we were told they didn't know how long it would be, even though we had a confirmed reservation through Open Table. We were not seated until around 40 minutes AFTER our reservation time. Then, when we finally got our food, we only had less than 10 minutes to hurriedly eat before rushing to our show. Several of us only were able to eat half of our meals or less. It was completely unacceptable. A properly managed restaurant would take into account possible crowds before shows (particularly since the Pageant is right across the street). I have never had to wait this long for a CONFIRMED reservation. At a minimum, the restaurant should have offered some type of compensation for our meals, but none was offered. We will not be returning.
We met for my friends 75th Birthday. The noise was over the top. We could not talk to one another because it was so noisy.
My chicken had so much pepper on it, my mouth was burning with each bite. The gnocchis were black, burned and hard as a rock. This was not a fun dinner!
We had a great meal with great service. Will definitely be back & recommend to friends
Tavolo has excellent food and very friendly service, although the service was not exceptionally fast. The vibe has a nice casual, friendly feel to it. The noise level was a little bit more than ideal for us.
They were very busy and a little backed up so drinks took a little longer, etc. otherwise, it was great food. Dave our server was great and we had a fun and unhurried dinner. All good.
Excellent meal as always!
Never been disappointed, tried the pizza this time and it was excellent.
Kelly was an outstanding and attentive server. Thank you!
The food presentation was rich and pleasing. You will find the sauces and spices to be slightly different than what you are used to. The dining room was busy, but it was not deafening loud, like so many restaurants these days.
This has been One of my favorite go to places. They deleted the Lasagna and risotto polo from the menu and not reflected on the web site. So was disappointed to find that out after arrived. My 2 favorites. Hope they bring back
Consistently good. I've never been disappointed when having dinner here.
Wonderful calamari appetizer.
We had the Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts appetizers. Both were delicious. The bread they served on the side (with olive oil and grated Parmesan) was also delicious. I had the risotto of the day, which was shrimp, crab meat, and spinach. That was terrific. The leftovers were pretty good the next day too!
Food was excellent. There was a slight mix up with our checks, but we were a party of 6 splitting the bill.
The veal was fantastic. The roasted cauliflower is a favorite of my wife's.
Delicious, from the Pear salad to bone in porkchop. Will return.
Best toasted ravioli in town - enjoyed them thoroughly.
Love Tavolo! So many great dishes and very generous portions!
We arrived for our reservation and were immediately seated. They had a beef tenderloin spedini for a special which was great everyone else loved there pasta and the Peroni beer was great although the didnt have the dark which I prefer and I wohld love it if they started selling a port for after dinner. Overall a great time gor me and the family.
My husband and I had dinner at Tavolo V just before a concert at the Pageant. We first sat at a table with a cold draft, and the host moved us immediately. Our waiter was wonderful and offered opinions that led to perfect meals for both of us. Great evening.
Went with a friend. We each had an eggplant appetizer that was ample and delicious, split the beet salad, excellent and I finished with coffee. Chainti was acceptable. Clayton, our server, and the whole service team were helpful in getting us out in time for our play at Edison.
Veal and pizza were outstanding and the chicken very good.
The food was very tasty and for that I would recommend Tavolo to a friend. The service however was not as good. They definitely were having trouble with seating people and dealing with a very large party. This seemed to be affecting the efficiency of the wait staff. Several times we had to proactively ask for some attention to our table and meal.
the food was average at best, and after asking the waiter to do something about our 2 cups of cold coffee, proceeded to give us a lecture on the fresh standards of the place, therefore no microwave(!) no offer to remove from bill or heat up on stove
Service was reasonably fast. Noise level was reasonable so we could talk. Toasted ravioli was crisp, hot, and tasty. Chunky marinara sauce was good. Portions were generous. Chicken scallopine was delicious, more than I could eat, definitely not a low calorie entree. Wine prices also reasonable. Bread was good too.
We usually go for our favorites: Lasagna, Babbo's pizza, Casesar salad or the chicken alfredo type dish. However on Friday 3 of us had the fish special (DEEE licious) and my husband had the chicken and grilled vegetables (heart special). All of the dinners were great. My husband and I split a Caesar and our friends each had their own salad (can't remember which). We had plenty of bread and were kept supplied with cold water as well as refills of iced tea for our friends. Thank you
It was a snowy day, so the restaurant was only about a third full. The food was excellent. It is also helpful that Tavolo V in the Loop has its own parking.
Great food! The server, both visits, was outstanding. I will be going back.
Would have been nice to have been informed prior to driving to your location yesterday that you had closed for the night.
Reservation was for 6pm. At 4:30 restaurant called to confirm. It was snowing that day, but not enough to make roads hazardous. At 5:58 we parked and the phone rang again. It was the restaurant calling, but I did not pick up since we were already walking in. At this point we were told that the owner called and said to close for the evening. This is absolute BS! Will never consider going there again and as someone who spends 15 to 20k on dining out annually I will make sure to tell everyone about this experience!
Probably one of the best dining experiences in the Saint Louis area. The food was delicious and was very reasonable for the amount of food you get. I can’t wait to return. The service was 10/10.
My wife and I and a close friend very much enjoyed diner at Tavolo's recently. As usual the food was great and the service was even greater. Our only issue was the noise level. It was loud and made hearing the person across the table difficult. I don't know what solution might help that issue, but if there is one, do it!
Great food and service!!
Great food and awesome Italian spot in the loop. Their pizza and bolognese were terrific
