We did have a nice meal at the Tavern Kitchen and Bar. My wife had the scallops and I had a seafood trio. Turned out to be more than we could eat. I gave Tavern 3 stars because when I received the bill I was charged twice for my entree. I thought the prices were a bit high to begin... More

We loved loved the atmosphere. This is a great place to take a date. The food was great. I have no complaints. I am a vegetarian and they offer a special menu. My food had lots of flavor and looked amazing. My boyfriend is a chef, and he enjoyed his food as well. Great place!!!

Well, I've been here again twice since my first visit not long ago so I am quite a fan. It's a little pricey but I like just about everything besides the menu including the ambiance, decor and design, limited menu, and its modest square footage. I have already reordered two items: their spinach salad and gooey butter cake. May not... More

This restaurant is really beautiful. It has a relaxing and sophisticated atmosphere that would make any occasion feel special. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here and it was a great meal and experience. The staff is friendly and polite. When I made our reservation they asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. From the time we... More

Visited the Tavern with my wife and small children last Saturday evening. They were great with the kids! The service was top notch and the food was off the charts. I had the sushi roll appetizer and the Ahi for dinner. It was all awesome! The atmosphere in the restaurant was energetic and fun. We have been before but it... More

Just perfect! The braised short ribs were wonderful. We brought our own Brunello wine. Excellent service.

Heard good things from friends about this spot. Was pleased in a way when the Shack was not serving lunch and we toddled on down to The Tavern. My daughter and I had lunch. It was average, I would say. Server we had was great, but my salad was primarily white lettuce and rather wilted. Nice atmosphere and watching other... More

Had wanted to visit this spot since I first read of it's opening in the Webster-Kirkwood Times some time ago. Finally did so last week and was very happy with the experience. We came in early on a Sunday evening: First because that's the time that worked for us but, Second because we like a calm quiet relaxing dining experience... More

I read all of the reviews on the Tavern and the majority of them were great or better so I knew I had to try this place. The service was exceptional, very friendly waitstaff, but felt slightly rushed because they kept checking in more frequently than I would have preferred. The food was very good quality, and flavors were robust,... More
