We' ve been to Taberna twice so far, and the impression was the same both times: The food is excellent, very tasty authentic Spanish food. We had a delicious Paella for 2 the first time we went, this time we I had the lamp stew and my wife had a risotto with scallops. The appetizer and tapas were even more... More

As far as I am concerned Taberna is about the best restaurant in Fairfield country. Great food and fine service without the usual Fairfield County attitude. The food, the presentation and the overall dining experience was outstanding. The owner host was gracious, hospitable and very helpful in guiding our decisions.

Taberna is a "hidden gem" a little off the beaten path in Bridgeport. It has a diversified menu of international cuisine. We encourage you to try it; I'm sure when you do, you will want to go back. This is one of our favorite local restaurants. The seafood is always fresh and the sauces perfectly complement the entrees. We really... More

We started with the grilled calamari, which were tender and juicy, a must order! We also tried the stuffed mushrooms with lobster on top and were very good. Next, we tried the endive/arugula salad, excellent dressing and very tasty, we were scraping the Pinole nuts. For our dinner entree we had the fish stew, was very good, not excellent and... More

The owner is very helpful. We often go with friends and family and decide to feast on the tapas menu rather than ordering any entrees. We all like to share and he brings us lots of plates to make that possible. We are never pressured to hurry our meals.

I read that this was a good place, so I made it a destination. It was worth the trip. the grilled calamari was to die for, and reasonably priced. I bet the greek salad is equally good - I will try that next time. But the dishes we had were very good: risotto, grilled calamari and codfish croquettes. definitely worth... More

We went to Taberna electing some of the best food and service in Fairfield county. The service was horrific to say the least, it took 35 minutes and three different servers for a bottle of wine to finally make it to the table. Our salads didn't come out for 45 minutes. I ordered a NY Strip streak and my fiance... More

We greatly enjoyed our meal for 4 at Taberna and found the variety & quality of food to be wonderful. Reasonably priced too. We'll go back soon.

This is our second visit and my only question is - why isn't this place packed??? The food is delicious. The service friendly, what more can you ask? We had the most tender octopus ever. We have mostly ordered tapas but tonight also ordered the lamb stew. It was delicious. We will be back.

Unapologetically, I declare that Taberna is serving the best food in Fairfield County. I have eaten there 4 times and each time, I can't wait to return. You must try their grilled calamari - a meal in and of itself and yet is on the Appetizer list for $10. This and a glass of wine and you will be in... More
