My memories of the Taverne of Richfield were nothing but first class...great Sunday brunch, excellent dinners, professional, and helpful classy service. Unfortunately as often happens in the restaurant business, it changes hands and the standards for quality food, good service and cleanliness also changes...but not necessarily for the better. We stopped here on a Sunday mid-afternoon. Nobody in the dining room so we sat in the bar. I was immediately taken aback by the fact that there were only three people in the bar with a football game on the tube. (One of the three was a bartender.) So the bartender see us, leaves and goes to the opposite direction of our table to do what ever. Eventually she comes back and finally asks us what we would like to drink and hands us menus. My son had a lemonade, wife and I ordered diet Coke. The Coke was flatter than the bar top. She (bartender) gets lost again. One of the two guys leave the bar. She finally makes another appearance. Told her Coke was flat, went to bottled beer. We ordered two burgers, wife orders some kind of chicken salad sandwich. Finished all our drinks, last guy leaves the bar. We're alone with empty drinks, no food and no bartender. Spotted some guy that looked like a potential employee. Asked if he worked there-yes, brought us another beer and two soft drinks. (another flat Coke for my wife) Our disappearing bartendress reappears with our food. Burgers burned, chicken slathered is some type of syrupy sweet slimy stuff. YUK. Wanted to walk out of the dump, but was overruled because nobody had lunch and it was already 3:30PM. Now I know why we were the ONLY ones in there. Never again.
