We met friends at the Tavern on the edge of Brentwood in LA. It was a fixed price menu with the choice of turkey or vegetarian for there main course. I started with my usual but very good Manhattan. My wife had the Lucques Gimlet and she said it was great. We started with a persimmon & pomegranate salad with... More

This was our second dinner at Tavern in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles and, like the first, it was excellent in every way. My wife had the salmon and I had their short ribs....both were very tasty and beautifully presented. By the way, we noticed on both visits that their bread was delicious --- don't fill up on it...

Tavern is a beautiful restaurant. It would make a good first date location. Especially the atrium. It has two living trees sprouting up from the center. Very cool. Service was also excellent. My water glass was topped off repeatedly throughout the night. The best thing I ate there was my appetizer: bacon-wrapped dates with a hint of Parmesan. It was... More

Had a long layover at LAX, so we rented a car, did some shopping, and had an early dinner (6:00) at Tavern. What a great decision! The carpark is behind the restaurant on Darlington Ave, well lit and attended so I was comfortable leaving a bag in the car. We were seated immediately, obviously not full at 6 even on... More

The setting is lovely, the menu is inventive and meticulously executed. The wait staff were attentive, engaging and made for a really delightful evening. Sadly all that hard work was tainted by a surly and ungrateful car valet. Perhaps someone could bring him into the restaurant, treat him like a guest, show him the standards of grace and professionalism that... More

I recently visited The Tavern for the first time with my family. My daughter only books places that meet her expectations so I knew it would be good. I was delightfully surprised with the food, all delicious and properly plated. Two of us had the turkey burger, which I thought was a bit pricey at $17, but hands down the... More

As the title states, this is where my friend had his wedding reception. It was an intimate affair and everything about the setting was just perfect. The staff was impeccable, the food was divine and the furnishings are upscale. They have a great bar and a pastry shop up front. Outdoor seating was also a nice finishing touch.

Before making reservations, my companion - who is rocking a wheelchair - did our research. His favorite restaurant in LA is Suzanne Goin's Lucques so food was the # priority in choosing Tavern. It did not disappoint. We also were prepared for the criticism's for service variability, which was exactly that. Despite noting in Open Table the accessibility issue and... More

My wife and I had dinner there at the suggestion of our daughter and son-in-law who live in West LA and eat there often....we were not disappointed. My wife had the Char (a fish that is a cross between a salmon and a trout --- or so it seemed) -- and she was quite pleased with its preparation, presentation and... More
