Feast on mouthwatering steaks and delicious farm-to-table cuisine at Tavro 13. This restaurant serves up contemporary American cuisine in a casual, friendly space. Created by chef Terence Feury, the restaurant's seasonal menu includes salads, appetizers and soups. It also features a tidy range of meat, fish and pasta entrées. The restaurant prides itself on only using the freshest ingredient sourced from local farms. Visit for lunch and try the restaurant special chicken parmigiana, served with freshly grated parmesan and red sauce. Complement it with some cool beer.
Tucked in a historic building that once housed The Old Swede Inn, Tavro 13 offers a quiet respite for guests who wish to enjoy a leisurely meal. The restaurant also has several private dining rooms that can be used for special events. Tavro 13 is open for dinner, Thursday to Sunday.
Made a reservation well in advance, arrived precisely on time, and waited for more than 45 minutes for a table. The place wasn't packed - they either didn't plan or gave the table to someone else. This isn't what well-run restaurants do. It wasn't worth the wait - both food and service were pedestrian.
Delicious food, amazing service (shout out to Brianna!), one of my favorite cocktails (French 75), decent beer selection, and great jazz music to match the ambiance. I would definitely recommend, and can't wait to return!
Food was delicious and cooked as expected, ambiance was cozy, and service very good.
We'll definitely be back for another top notch dining experience.
My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. We were the only ones in the entire restaurant. It was a great dining experience. Our waitress was one of the best waitresses we ever had. Went above and beyond.
Food and surroundings great. Service slower than expected.
Food quality rivals many of Philadelphia's top 10% at a much more reasonable price point. A relatively small number of menu offerings but they spanned a wide gastronomic range. Quality and preparation was flawless and we appreciated the emphasis on local sourcing. Can't wait to go back when South Jersey's bounty is on full display. Service staff was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Wine list was well-paired with the menu and was of exceptional value. The only shortcoming was the dessert - I had a tiramisu that did not stack up to an otherwise outstanding experience.
My wife and I went for Valentine's day. Our experience was ok but not ideal. The restaurant was crowed and tables were close together. It was difficult to have a conversation since other couples were so close to us. My steak was delicious, however my wife's steak was tough. Overall the food quality was fairly good, but overpriced. Service was slow due to the holiday. I do recommend visiting the bar area instead of the dining room or eat at the attached more casual Red Hen portion. The ambiance is better there than in the Tavro 13 dining area. They do have a great beer selection in all areas.
Tavro remains the only restaurant in our South Jersey area that replicates the better restaurants in Philadelphia, so save that drive over the bridge. The oysters are served they way they should be served, on ice with the right accrutaments. The drinks are unique without skimpy pours. The food is fresh and the servers have always been attentive and courteous. Give it a try.
We keep trying to like this restaurant since it is only a few miles from our home. The menu (average to pricey), has recently been revised, to me is still lacking substance unless you like steak. Although the food was good it does not have the WOW factor you would expect for the pretentious atmosphere portrayed. I went with 2 other adults on a Saturday night at 7 PM. The reservation was made online 2 weeks prior. Even though tables were empty in the front room we were seated on the side porch with another family with a child watching a movie on their device. Love kids but when I am paying those prices for an adult dinner I don't expect to hear a screaming movie in the background. A group of us were going to go for my husbands birthday in a few weeks but unfortunately I will travel to find a better menu and atmosphere. Finally have given up on Tavro 13.
PS The waitress was sweet and very accommodating!
Somewhat slower dining, but that's understood and the positives are the determining factors in recommending this restaurant.
