We went to A Taberna on a very cold and snowy evening and were the only people in the restaurant for a while. The service was terrific and we enjoyed a wonderful meal and Sangria. Since they weren't busy, my friend and I were able to talk for hours as we enjoyed our Cappuccino. We certainly will return!!

Excellent food in a casual setting. Usually a bit crowded but worth the wait. Oversized dishes with great flavor and personal service.

We went with friends last night .We had been there once before as had they.The food was excellent,portions were large but as others have remarked,quite salty.Prices were very good considering that entrees came with potato and a vegetable or rice instead of the other two. The wait staff were average .

I do think the food is good. However I do agree with other reviewers that the food can be very salty! Next time, out of health concerns, I will request no salt. The place is dim lit, which I like. Its on the older side, could use a renovation. I haven't had many Portuguese experiences but I do like this... More

We used to come here when they first opened and it was great, and very hard to get into. But I'm afraid then days have past, now it's ok, but nothing special, and you can get in whenever you want to. Now don't get me wrong, it's still good but just not as great as it once was.
