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.

Food is excellent; service is also very good. Place is small and gets noisy when crowded, like on weekends.

Great restaurant. Food has always been good whether going with just my wife or a large party. Their sauces of any kind are wonderful. Don't miss the clams and sausage appetizer and the champagne lobster is great. They also have some real nice steak. I usually get the filet mignon w/shrimp and a brown sauce. Service is friendly and the... More

A Taberna is an exceptional restaurant where quality and freshness come first. The paella is incredible as is their sangria. The freshly made potato chips served with hot bread at your table are an awesome start to every meal. Make reservations on the weekends.

The food was ok, but it was very salty. The service was ok, but very, very, slow. The place was ok, but very noisy and the seating was very badly laid out.
