The Tavern Kitchen & Bar - CWE Ratings and Reviews
We were visiting from out of town. We were looking for a restaurant with an interesting menu with healthy choices. We were very pleased with the options and recommendations from the waitstaff. We selected the Seafood Trio Tasting Board and all of the dishes were delicious and unique. We highly recommend The Tavern.
Ny favorite restaurant in the US for brunch was Norma’s in NYC until Sunday at The Tavern. The trio with the ricotta pancake was amazing and I can’t quit talking about it. My husband had the Chicken and Waffle and it was also wonderful. Even the Mimosa was delicious. The service was perfect. I can’t wait to go back for dinner. I give this a full 10!!!
First time at this location, many times at the West County one. Biggest disappointment is no chef's counter at CWE. Was somewhat cold in the restaurant, especially when the door got stuck open for several minutes. Our server Logan was great, and did a great jot explaining all the various menu items. To me it is basically the same menu at both locations. When I go back it will definitely be to the West County location. Much better ambience plus chef's counter!!!
This would have been a very good dining experience, except for one thing: some of the foods were just too hot to be pleasant. By hot I mean spicy hot, except that the the hotness did not carry additional flavor- it was just hot. I had a fish sampler with three different fish prepared in different ways. Both the curry and the Asian sauces were hot enough to detract from the fish. I like spicy food, and can tolerate much hotter, but I don’t see the point of sacrificing flavor. My wife is more sensitive, and did not finish her curry dish. We ate here about two years ago, and had no problems, so maybe it’s a case of creeping hotness. Not sure if we'll be back, but everything else was fine.
The appetizers and sides were amazing but the filet was REALLY under-seasoned and squid ink in a dish should never ever be overpowered by tomato (in my opinion), plus my mahi mahi was really dry. Would not waste another $200 on a meal here again. Save yourself and go somewhere else.
I have eaten at the Taven many times. This was the worst experience I have ever had. The Hanger steak was in etable and to pay a premium price is terrible. The main course came out before we were even done with our salad. To pay these prices for bad food and to be rushed out is not the way to treat customers.
We were there for Sunday brunch. The Lobster Beignets were wonderful, as was the double cut bacon. My son had the chicken and waffles and said it was excellent, and his girlfriend had the blueberry waffles, a huge serving, which she said was very good. I also tried the Bloody Mary and it was perfect. Service was great (attentive but not intrusive), and we had a nice window seat, so could watch the passers-by on the neighborhood street -- a very nice experience overall, and we'll most likely return another time we're in town.
Beautiful food -- well-presented, creative, and delicious. The service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The ambiance was relaxed and warm. We were there for brunch and enjoyed our time very much; the food arrived promptly but we didn't feel rushed at all. The one criticism is that the prices were a bit high (especially for the shrimp and grits -- although they were excellent) for what we got. Not exorbitantly so, but just enough to feel like things were a little out of proportion. The portions aren't skimpy, but they're not especially generous either. I like the amount on the plate but would feel it fairer to pay a few dollars less for it. Otherwise, a very good experience.
We have dined at both the Tavern Kitchen locations in the past, but had not been there for Sunday brunch. We had no idea what we were missing. The brunch menu contained a wide variety sure to please any palate, including three brunch tasting boards. My wife (not a breakfast eater) exclaimed that the chicken-fried steak was her favorite even while admitting that she normally doesn't like breakfast, let alone chicken-fried steak. It was a great pre-Fox Sunday matinee meal and we will be back.
we had reservations for 7pm and were surprised h0w alone we were surmised it was a carryover impact of the protests from a week earlier. they around 8pm, the place filled up
parking is an issue. no valet so we were a bit timid walking back to our car around 9:00
i would say that the waitstaff was wonderful. never intrusive. always available.
We were seated in the back room which was deserted except for another party. Kind of dampened the fun of this place. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, but the food was really only just good, not great. Pot stickers were dry and overdone. Desserts were the best part. Seemed like an "off" night for this well reviewed spot.
