I ordered the Shrimp salad on grilled bok choy.............it was literally one shrimp, cut into very small pieces and a hand full of greens......the bok choy was barely visible, that too was cut into very small pieces that you could hardly see. The salad was 14.00 and so not worth it. I was very excited to go back to this... More

I've eaten here a few times, most recently for my mother-in-law's surprise birthday. The menu is always great (though definitely not geared towards the "chicken nugget" crowd, which makes it nice for date night with the wife), and the staff is very accommodating. If you're looking for a *quiet* intimate dinner with that special someone, you're probably not going to... More

My 3 boys, mom and I visited Tavern58 on Mothers Day. We were late in making Mother's Day brunch reservations, so this appeared to be a good option that had availability. Upon arrival, in looking at the menu, there wasn't much in the way of "kid friendly" options (I have 3 boys ranging in age from 6-9), so I was... More

We try to stay away... but can't. The food is always great. There is a great crew working there that know the food and are very friendly and attentive. Who goes out to a great restaurant and orders chicken scaloppini? Well once you've had this dish at 58, you'll know. bar tenders are the best in the city. There is... More

Sharon and I visited Tavern 58 @ Gibbs the evening of April 21, 2015. We started our evening at another nearby restaurant...motivated by a gift certificate we had purchased and it's expiration date was coming soon. A place that will go unmentioned here...but is nearby, that we'd never visited before. Limited menu, more bar than restaurant...I turned to Sharon and... More

Met with another couple for dinner and drinks. We had a few drinks at the bar before heading off to dinner. All the staff were friendly and made us feel right at home. Warm inviting atmosphere.

First time here and won't be the last. We started with cocktails, gin and tonic and a Ketel one martini, both were good. Appetizer was shared clams casino which was good and the fried tortilla strips were great! The shared house salad was plenty for two and very tasty with the house dressing and the fruit and nuts in it.... More
