My wife and I had been to the Liberty Tavern a couple of times for special occasion lunches during the week and enjoyed it. We went this past Sunday with an out of town friend based on neighbors' recommendations for Sunday brunch. The brunch buffet at $21.95/person seemed to be what most patrons were after, and it looked tempting. But... More

Liberty Tavern is well-known for its brunch, and deservedly so. It has both a full brunch entree menu and a fancy brunch spread with meats, eggs and an entire dessert table. Unfortunately, the high quality and local renown also mean that it's very crowded, and they've jammed in as many tables as possible into a small space to fit everyone.... More

We booked this restaurant for our family of 6 and everyone of us liked our food. The gnocchi was outstanding, the best I've had. The pizzas were good, but my so. Said he'd had better or I would have rated the food 5 stars. It was a bit loud. We were seated upstairs. The atmosphere was lively and fun. And... More

Their lunch menu had enough selections to give you choices but not so many you had to study it to make a decision, which makes it perfect for lunch. And, there were healthy choices (not chosen by me) for the lunchdate who is always on a diet. I was seated before my lunch guest arrived, much better than standing, and... More

Enjoyed a great evening out with friends from out of town. All of us selected the line caught halibut served on a bed of asparagus risotto, a couple of oyster mushrooms draped elegantly over the halibut topped with oak charred onions. Simply delicious. The halibut did not match the outstanding fresh halibut I had once in Alaska but again this... More

I am particularly fond of the pizzas, but really Liberty Tavern has something for everyone. The evening we were there, they offered a special octopus ceviche which on of my friends enjoyed. For happy hour, the first floor is quite fun and lively.

Last night I dined a Liberty Tavern with business colleagues. I had a very good squid in linguini pasta (but some of the seafood was overcooked). There was a good source of local beers and the service was excellent. Most importantly they were graciously able to accommodate dietary needs (e.g. vegetarian, gluten free). The atmosphere is open brasserie style but... More

I've had lunch twice now at the Liberty Tavern in Clarendon and it's been special each time! Very friendly service and the menu is varied with interesting combinations of flavors, as well as the classics. Shop down one side of Clarendon, refuel at Liberty Tavern, and then shop up the other side for a girls day out!

Stopped in for a business lunch. Ordered a beer and Cubano Pannini. Damn glad I did. Fantastic sandwich (the lick your plate kinda sandwich) - and the red-skin potato salad was a delicious accompaniment. Parking in the Clarendon area of Arlington is limited... try a side street. My colleagues also raved about their fares - panini, salad and lobster roll.... More

The Sunday brunch was exceptional: a wide selection of beautifully presented food, all of which was delicious and pleasing to the vegetarian, the wheat/gluten intolerant, and the omnivore alike. Of particular note were full flavored fresh fruit, good salads, delicious deviled eggs, smoked salmon with trimmings, a beef carving station, well-crafted pizza, exemplary fried chicken, scrambled eggs two ways, extra...
