Excellent Experience

While in Jacksonville for business, I went to Taverna with my managers. Great local beer selection and the sautéed calamari appetizer was very good. I had the special, Chilean Snapper. It was outstanding! Would definitely recommend!!

The restaurant was pretty quiet for a Sunday night, but that was OK with us as we were visiting with friends we hadn't seen in a while. We were seated immediately, and probably didn't even need a reservation, but not knowing the area, we had made one anyway. My honey and I shared the meatball appetizer, they were not all... More

The food selection was good and there were smaller portions available of many of the dishes, which my wife really likes. The by the glass wine selection is a bit limited, but what they have was good, enjoyed the waiters recommendation. The food was very good and the wait was short. The wait staff was very helpful and good.

Great menu and excellent food, though we were a little worried when we were ignored for the first fifteen minutes after being seated. The waitperson apologized, but went missing in action again before she brought our coffee. Salads, sandwiches, and soup were all very good, and the single ricotta pancake side dish made an excellent dessert. We would return for... More

Not many booths. Outdoor seating available. The food is American cuisine. It is a little pricy. Small portions. But overall a good meal. Limited parking.

Taverna is a wonderful restaurant, and everyone knows it. But, once you are in side and settled, you will see why. The food is excellent and there is something for everyone -- from an array of appetizers on which to make a meal, pizzas, pastas, salads, and main entrees. For as busy as it is the service is warm, friendly,... More

We could not get enough of this place. Kind of plain inside, believe this is on purpose because the emphasis is on the food. Taverna is a gem, delicious food, from the chicken salad at lunch to the hanger steak at dinner.Get budino for dessert for sure. Wait staff is friendly and pays attention to detail. Dining outside at was... More
