Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with me. I am a bit taken back that you were asked about reservations as we take walk ins all the time with no issue except on hot dates such as valentines day and some sold out weekends. I am sorry for the perception you left with and hope you... More

We joined friends for a leisurely quiet lunch and it couldn't have been any better. A nice pub atmosphere,corner table looking out a window into the courtyard. Maria,our waitress was prompt, friendly & most helpful. We ended up spending three hours eating and catching up in the perfect spot.

Went for a holiday dinner with friends. The atmosphere was nice, but I thought the price was too high for the meals we were served. I wanted to like it more, but will not rush back.

I've never had a bad meal or cocktail here! I just wish they had some more traditional breakfast options.

The Tavern at the Armory has good food and good service in an attractive setting. Their beer is always fresh and cold, and they seem to keep their taps clean -- which is a real plus in Connecticut where a lot of places just don't understand the importance of a weekly flush. The chef is creative and I have never... More

I've been here at the tavern for Valentine's Day dinner, have attended functions and held functions there - not a missed note ever. Staff is very accommodating, the food is uniformly good, and the setting is just classy enough without being stuffy.

We recently celebrated our anniversary at the Tavern and enjoyed our dinners very much. We always do. There was a wide variety of selections -- it was hard to choose so we'll have to go back!

I love a good breakfast place! One of the downtown shop owners recommended we try the breakfast here. We tried the breakfast this past weekend and were highly impressed; this will be very tough competition for our other breakfast favorites in town. Oh, the difficult choices we are forced to make! My husband ordered the carrot muffin batter waffle and... More

A wide menu with something for everyone. I ate here often and never been disappointed. I thoroughly recommend the Chowder, Chill or Five onion soup for a starter. The mains are more than ample. There's a smaller bar menu and usually a good selection of ales
