Bring back the Carafe of Wine!1

Reservoir Tavern has been a regular for my wife and myself for years now. Just a great neighborhood tavern for some drinks and a great, great pie. Pretty good Italian food as well. Well, tonight we visited and something was amiss. The place looked the same - crowded and vibrant. But when we asked... read more

The best sandwiches! The Ultimste and the Riviera Club are just the best sandwiches ever! Fresh pizza bread tops it off. Add a few toasties for an appetizer and split their homemade French fries and you will be in high cotton!

the pizza is exceptional, but they do not deliver, so you are forced to pick it up. the place is a mad house. it is restaurant and bar is always packed to the hilt. i suppose they have some sort of system but damned if i could figure out what it was. i wound up waiting for almost 10 minutes...

Always heard about the pizza at the tavern and finally got a chance to stop in to this local fixture (been in same spot since 1936). Pizza was fantastic, get the toasties which are toasted meatballs with a side of sauce. Friendly service, bar area was hopping for a Saturday afternoon. Absolutely worth a visit.

I give my lunch (the mezanone - $10.50) an average and my husband's (bar pizza with broccoli rage, garlic, and roasted peppers - $13.50) a very good. I ordered the stuffed eggplant from the appetizer menu - billed as a half eggplant (a very tiny eggplant) stuffed with mushrooms, roasted peppers, artichoke hearts). I figured a $10.50 portion would be... More

We ordered 2 large pies for pickup - the "large" looked big enough to feed 2 people. It was 1/2 the size of the box- almost looked like a domino's pie. Taste was just OK. Nothing to write home about. I've heard of others who absolutely love this place - I guess it's a hit or miss.

Surprised by the negative reviews. I had my first pizza here in the early 60's and have been coming every month or so ever since ... Yes, there is a wait often, is that a bad thing ? Have never had inferior service. Besides the pie, love the shrimp calabrese, beet salad, cold antipasto, and the "ultimate" which has to... More

I have never eaten here. I never will. They refused to allow my nephew inside because he's in a wheelchair. I'm boycotting this place as a consequence.

I have lunch here at least twice per month. Always great. The staff is tremendous. My favorite is the sausage and pepper sandwich, no sauce, roll on the side.

I love Reservoir, I really do. I also hate it. I love that the Pizza is so good that your mouth waters just thinking about it. So is the soup. So is probably everything I've ever had there. I hate that you have to wait an hour to get seated and when you do, the waitresses act like they're doing... More
