Fantastic Portugese food

We have been here 6 times . We are very impressed with the food and service.. The paella (seafood) was fabulous. We shared a couple of appetizers- clams in white wine and cod cake(a special) both were excellent. We also shared the paella. The main dish portions are generous. My husband had flan... read more

Four of us went here on a Saturday night. The food was pretty good, but the 3 baked potatoes that were ordered were practically raw. They were sent back & 2 came out properly cooked, but one was still hard as a rock. Never went to a restaurant that didn't know how to bake a potato! No one checked to... More

Just spoke to my fiance as we passed this the other day. This is my fav restaurant in the area by far! Try the pork chop ... or a steak. You can't go wrong .. and the atmosphere is perfect for a small gathering.

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
