Excellent all the time.

This food is always good for a date night or birthday or when you just want to splurge on an excellent meal. Definitely worth every cent!

This is a really great modern Italian bar and restaurant, serving a mix of classics (e.g. ravioli) and modern dishes (e.g. pork chop with bacon jam and kale). The place was buzzing on a Saturday night, with the bar full and most tables occupied. But service was never less than excellent, unhurried, friendly and professional. The food was also first...

If you are going to eat here on the weekend I recommend making a reservation as the restaurant stays pretty busy. I met friends at the bar and had drinks prior to sitting down at our table. Server did a good job in letting us go at our own pace. Good wine selection. Love having a choice to order a... More

Enjoyed a girls night here---very relaxing with great service. Mediterranean type menu with good variety of options. Portions were large and very tasty. Very charming area of town to take out of town guests. Only down side is it's a bit pricey.

We frequent Taverna often, mostly for dinner, and it never disappoints. However, for a real treat, their Sunday brunch is delicious. The pastry/bread basket is perfection. We would go just for the pastry basket alone!

We had the opportunity to eat here twice in a week in July and we were not disappointed. We ate there for a Sunday brunch and Saturday dinner. To start the brunch was excellent. My daughter had the house made brioche French toast, which was very good. There brick oven baked pizza was excellent. I had a one and my... More

Eighteen years ago it was Cafe Carmon one of the first places I ate in Jacksonville. It retains it's uncomplicated appeal. Everything has really been upgraded but you can not upgrade the pleasant and attentive staff. My choices were cold gazpacho soup with a wedge salad accompanied by a glass of Vermentino and then a Rose~. Clean crisp and simple... More

The restaurant is open and fresh. The bartenders were very friendly and knowledgeable and they have a great wine list and craft cocktail list. The service was attentive and professional. The menu has a good variety of food. We had the lamb shank the the pork ragu. Both were excellent and will have them again. I will definitely be back.
