All of our party of six had the surf and turf--steak and crab stuffed shrimp with different kinds of mashed potatoes and steamed spinach. It was excellent! One of us had a special soup that was tasty although it had a little kick at the end. Service was very attentive and the water glasses were kept full. We'll be back!

My husband and I went for dinner on Saturday. Started w the cheese & crab fondue and wedge salads. Fondue was very good, not as much crab as last time I got it here last winter. Salad was average. I got the schnitzle and it paled in comparison to others I've had. The meat was a little tough and the... More

This was our first visit ti their paring dinners and won't be the last. The four courses and wine parings was both delightful and "fun with some not so typical wine parings" as... More

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
