Our friends who live in Brookline brought us here on a rainy Saturday for some beer and burgers, and we were very pleased with both here. The atmosphere is very cozy with a beautiful bar and dark wood all around. The beer selection was good - several drafts and even more bottle choices. The wine menu also looked diverse. All... More

Jerry welcomes old friends and newcomers alike with a smile and a vast knowledge of wines from around the world. As first timers to this restaurant he set... More

My husband and I started going to WST when we moved to the neighborhood a few years ago. We love the place so much that we found ourselves going at least once a week! The food is fantastic, and the wine and beer selection is lovely. The cocktails are hit or miss - but there are a few standards that... More

Meet some friends at the Tavern and was so happy to have found it. I feel like I'm now "in the know"! Food, service, atmosphere: all exceeded expectations. Looking forward to sharing this with others very soon. Thank you everyone for a great night.

I've been coming to the Tavern for years and have always been pleased to have it feel like home. Last night we at the farro and the scallops. The dishes change with the season but the bar staff stays the same. The regulars behind the bar make the Tavern feel like home. While not inexpensive I generally find the Tavern... More
