We've been Tavern58 patrons since they first opened the doors several years ago, but we've now had 3 poor experiences and are sure there we can find better. The first bad meal included the top of a whisk in my husband's mashed potatoes. Though the management was very solicitous, we were left wondering why no one had noticed. No broken... More

Tavern58 at Gibbs hosts a different pairing dinner once a month. We've been to several and last night, May 29, 2014, they hosted an Absolut Vodka pairing event. These events give Mike and his newest assistant chef, Steve, a chance from a culinary perspective, the stretch their wings and get really creative. Ryan, from a drinks perspective, coordinates perfectly. Last... More

I have been to Tavern 58 at Gibbs several times, and I continue to experience excellent food and a wonderful time. Tavern 58 is near the Eastman School of Music and Eastman Theater (great for pre-show dinner). It attracts a younger crowd as well as couples, groups, and families. I scheduled a evening out for a group of people I... More

My wife and I went to dinner at Tavern 58 for the second time. As before , the food is what I would describe as eclectic and delish. There is no salt or pepper on the table and none needed as the food is flavored so well. It not frequently that I finish everything but at the end of dinner,... More

My husband and I were seated on time which is great. However, when we sat at our table, and our server arrived, she was chewing gum which was very unprofessional. The server could not recite the specials properly by not pronouncing the dishes or even explain what they were. We would have ordered an appetizer if the server didn't take... More

My wife and I were seated promptly at 7pm for our reservation made through open table. Restaurant can get a little noisy with some larger groups dinning. I had the charred strip steak done to a perfect medium rare. Wife had the scallops with butternut squash ravioli. Loved the small rolls and dipping oil. Owners of the restaurant are very... More
