Fabulous meal, very creative menu with great flexibility on choices. Delicious flavor combinations that I'd never had before; seafood a specialty. Chef must truly love his work; the preparation and presentation were tops. Service was excellent, server very knowledgable, attentive but not overbearing. My group of six was most impressed and the dinner was a totally positive experience. Kitchen in full-view of diners, nothing to hide. Desserts were crazy-good, ranging from coffee creme brûlée to an over-the-top half cooked chocolate chip cookie with ice cream and peanut butter sauce. Highly recommend The a Tavern for a great meal you won't soon forget!

One of my favorites. The warm bacon vinaigrette spinach salad is so good. Another highlight is the half baked chocolate chip cookie with ice cream and peanut butter mousse. Just a great restaurant.

We enjoy the Tavern every couple months. We like the subtle changes in the Tasting boards and the seasonal offerings. Our waiter Mike was helpful with preparations and pairings from the Fish Market. All in all, a consistent service and what we have become accustomed to at the Tavern.

Great service! Nice menu offerings, though a bit overpriced. This is a nice place for a date night or special occasion, though there are many other fine dining options in the STL area that aren’t as pricey.

The Tavern has always been my #1 favorite restaurant in St. Louis. The food is always delicious, menu changes regularly but it seems the older favorites are always still available. Best of all, you are served more than enough. Not a fan of small plates with 2 bites of decorative food. The service is always warm and inviting and I have never been made to feel like a pain if I try to change something about a main course. The drinks and wine/beer list is impeccable too!
I would recommend this restaurant to families (my 2 young children were always spoiled by the servers), business dinners, family get together, date night, or just hanging out with friends. You won't be disappointed!

A party of 4 enjoyed different dishes, the exception was our pear salad starter which was outstanding. Gotta have the cinnamon donut holes w- super yummy whipped cream. The Tavern never disappoints but crowded Enugu to feel hip and still enjoy conversation w/ friends. A perfect evening.

My wife and I have been here three times and it is consistently good. The service is jovial, respectful, knowledgeable, and fast. Their timing of courses is perfect.

The atmosphere is quite nice in that it is upscale, but lacks the pretense of other places.

They use quality ingredients and their kitchen staff is accurate and consistent. They also rotate out their menu. If you get the chance, their meatloaf is delicious -- yes, that's right.

Can't recommend it highly enough.

This is a West County hotspot! Very creative menu especially the tasting boards. They let you sample 3-4 menu items - very generous serving size! It’s comfortable, but maybe a little loud. Our waitress was a pro, and she knew the answers to all of our menu related questions. Freshest fish in town!

Just visiting inlaws in the county and wanted a vibrant, nice place for dinner. The food was excellent! My with and MIL shared the seafood plank, which is a sampling of 3 popular dishes. I had the short ribs on polenta. They were off the bone and melted in your mouth.
I would highly recommend this place for those wanting good, healthy food!

Tavern Kitchen menu has changed since the last time I was there, 3 years ago. The menu is not as varied and is a bit more limited. The service is perfect, the atmosphere is very nice and the price for the menu items is within range for what you get and the presentation of the meal. I do not drink wine so I cannot give feedback on that part. It was nice to see them open the retail space next to the original area, giving them more guests at one time. Our server was outstanding.
