I planned a cousin's reunion at Taberna for 30 people. Daniel the owner was so helpful and worked with me on the party menu. The food and service the night of the party was excellent. Everyone who came was so impressed with Taberna. I would definitely have another function there. I can't say enough about Daniel. He is so nice.

Even though it ended up being something different we went in any ways and i am so glad we did. This is a nice, classy mediterranean restaurant with delicious food. Best fried calamari in the...

My husband and I went here on Valentine's day, 8 pm reservation. Allow me to preface by saying that we are discerning 5-star diners, and that I lived in Italy for 4.5 years, so eating at any Italian/Mediterranean restaurant is always a gamble of authenticity for me. We were seated in a lovely room, warmly decorated for soft romance. A... More

This restaurant is one of Fairfield County's best kept secrets! Located in a quiet section of Bridgeport, it offers beautifully prepared seafood and a reasonably priced and interesting wine list. Not in the mood for a big meal? Try the amazing Tapas selection. The owner is readily on hand to offer suggestions and personally make sure your evening was memorable.

I went to Teberna once when if first opened. I, for some reason, forgot about what great food they had until I went for lunch with a friend last week. We both had salads. Mine with beef and my friends with chicken. They were excellent. I can't wait to go back.

Every time I have been here, I am amazed at this gem in Bridgeport. Its rarely crowded, which is unfortunate because the food is exceptional as is the service and ambiance. The prices are high but you're paying for quality food, service, and setting. Love this place!

We just came back from dinner here. The food was categorically outstanding. We are both vegetarian, and we had plenty to eat (several small plates, goat cheese ravioli, etc.) Both the food and the service were categorically outstanding. We strongly recommend that one looks at the wine list - they have some delicious Spanish wines that are served by the... More
