The Tavern Kitchen & Bar - West Ratings and Reviews
We always love coming to this restaurant. The food is always great, staff is friendly. We were seated at the counter overlooking the kitchen and it is truly amazing how friendly and efficient the staff is with cooking, plating and serving the food. We get to enjoy great food and a great show by sitting in that location. The short ribs are always amazing and the desserts are truly wonderful. Would highly recommend this restaurant!
We went on Valentine's Day. They were busy but we still had fast and excellent service, immediately were seated with our reservation. We did end up getting seated next to the bathrooms with no view of their famous open kitchen, but it was at least quieter. Our server was knowledgeable and patient in explaining the menu. I was disappointed that the holiday menu did not allow for substitutions for our gluten-free dietary needs but we still had plenty of choices. All of our food was excellent, far exceeding my expectations. The price is definitely something to raise an eyebrow at (Apps, Dinner, Wine and Dessert = $150) but I will definitely go again for a special occasion. We had a great evening.
The presentation of the food was good, but it wasn't worth the price. My wife and I both tried the sampler meals. The food was good, but nothing special. The only reason I give the overall score a 3 and not a 2 was because of the dessert. The half baked cookie was very good. With the prices being charged, the food should have been much better.
Everything was excellent! Been there more than a few times. First time i brought our own bottle of wine, was charged a $25 corkage fee a little hefty I believe, same as Kreiss. Usually a 10-15 dollar fee, and if server knows you and you order a drink, they drop the corkage fee. I do not tip on that fee.
Never disappoints. Had not been to the Valley Park location in several years and I believe it improved on the great experiences I recall from my past. It was good to see some old standby favorites and several new items on the menu. It amazes me that other fine dinning establishments have not opened in the area. The Tavern bravely led the way in southwest county and others have failed to follow their lead. Based upon the crowds, the market would support others.
Went to The Tavern for NYE with my husband and another couple. My husband likes their cheeseburger because it’s the most All-American food you can find on the menu. The cheeseburger was gone for the holiday and replaced with a 70.00 dollar steak. I guess I should of checked the menu before making reservations. He got a tasting board and tried to eat what he could. I think our friends liked the salad and cookie dessert the most. Probably won’t be back for a while.
We were in town for a few days and were not disappointed with the food or the atmosphere. We tried the family style appetizer and shared that as our entree. There was a different menu for this item as they had a New Year's menu. The appetizer included tastes of four items from the menu. The poached pear salad had small chunks of blue cheese, candied walnuts, and pears poached in white wine - delicious! For dessert we had the chocolate cake with salted caramel ice cream. Served in a cast iron dish, the cake was light and not a drop was left between us.
Food was good but very noisy and waiter carded our daughter and she Did not have have it on her as she just flew in from DC and 29 years old and would not serve her. She was in town to celebrate her engagement. Very poor and feet stuck to the floor it was so sticky!
The Tavern is our pre-theater routine---the terrific service always gives us plenty of time to make the performance. The seafood is the best in town---especially the trout when available. We love the choice of how we want the dish cooked and sauced to match the fish selection. And, the baby spinach salad is the best salad in town.
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!
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.
