This small restaurant never disappoints us. The space is decorated in a unique way -- carved bars both downstairs in the casual eatery and upstairs in more formal setting. Unusual lighting, mirrors and knickknacks adorn the ceiling and walls. The ambience is a welcome space,...More

Love the Tavern! A great spot to meet friends for a pre or post dinner cocktail. We have tried the small plates and dessert, but really love the cocktails they serve. Atmosphere is funky and comfortable.

I used to eat here regularly before I retired 15 years ago. The interior has been redone, nicely. The price are up, but the service and food are outstanding. Will return when I go back north for the summer.

The staff are very professional and the ambience seems suited to business dinners as well as special family occasions. The food is excellent - I would highly recommend the bone-in ribeye. Deserts are delicious.

Yes. Main dining room is upstairs, and the restaurant has no elevator. The same food is available downstairs, but it is noisier and can be crowded there
