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. Our waitress took the time to help us decide our meals. One crab cake, one chicken dish and two beef were ordered. All came... More

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

Have been here several times and always have excellent meal. Nice to be greeted by the owner. Recently had dinner before going to a play. Service was prompt and didn't feel rushed. I had the pako crusted chicken - very moist, and served with a delicious polenta. My husband had the filet - so tender, and great flavor, served with... More

Nice booths, house salad had lots of extras, nuts, blue cheese, blueberries and was perfectly dressed with just the right amt of dressing on every leaf. My veg burger with avocado was great as was the role, although might be too dense for others My husbands bolognese was excellent. Rodney Strong Chardonnay was part of a great wine selection. The...

My husband took me to Tavern 58 for our anniversary dinner, it was our first time there. All the staff we dealt with were very pleasant. It was a pretty cold winter night, restaurant is small & cozy but we were seated by a window and we had a hard time staying warm. But we stayed put because it was... More

We were a party of five looking for a place for dinner at the last minute. They accommodated us without any trouble. We all enjoyed our meal selections. The staff was there when needed, but not noticed when not. Overall a good experience. I can recommend Tavern 58 for a nice meal!

Enjoyed dinner with family from out of town. Nice choices for vegan appetite, excellent meatballs and hangar steak. Eclectic background music but not so loud so we could all converse. Wait staff was great and was knowledgeable about items on menu. Can't wait to go back! t
