This was my first time visiting the LIberty Tavern, though I'm a frequent visitor to D.C., and Arlington. Glad I went there, cause the Saturday Brunch Buffet was everything everyone said it was... "Excellent"!!! The price per person was well worth the quality and quantity of food! Though it's located upstairs, with an elevator for those with difficulty, the food... More

Thus place gas been a favorite since it opened many years ago. Really on ed of the first that offered fresh, chef-inspired menus. Seasonally updated menus. Really a great restaurant upstairs , with a bar down stairs. The first floor is really loud. Unfortunately, conversation in the upstairs restaurant is not easy either. Tables are pretty close together, inadequate insulation,... More

We met another couple for dinner here last weekend. The cocktails were excellent, as was the bread and the main dishes. Our party enjoyed steak, salmon, short ribs, and a burger. Everyone cleaned their plate. The service was also excellent. Our table was ready right on time, our server was very pleasant and attentive without being annoying. We sat next... More

I met a friend here for dinner and drinks last week. We sat outside, which was nice. The ambience inside was pretty nice also. The service was below average as we kept getting different servers throughout the evening. I understand switching when a person's shift is over but it's distracting when it happens several times. The food was above average... More

We stopped in for a late lunch in the bar to watch the Florida/Tennessee game on tv. We ordered the Apple Frisee Salad, the Cubano Panino, and the Grilled Cheese sandwich, local draft beers and cider in a can. Everything was good and we had a good spot from which to watch the game.

We met friends here because one person in our group has a dog and they have great outdoor seating where dogs are welcome. The location is great, service is good and wood-fired pizza is awesome. We will definitely go back.

Our host knew the background of this interesting place so one wondered, "If these walls could talk", what local secrets would be finally out in the open. There is plenty of space between tables at the top of the stairs. Service is quick but the menu is ho hum.

Great place for lunch, brunch (amazing), dinner or happy hour. The staff and bartenders are always friendly. FYI that on Friday and Saturday nights, they typically have a DJ set up so the atmosphere changes from a high end pub/wine bar feel to more of a club. The menu changes seasonally and is a delicious range from duck, octopus and... More

This is a wonderful place to have happy hour, large party, or dinner for 2. Food is always high quality, well plated, with a variety of food options. The menu changes seasonally, using farm fresh items, like heirloom tomatoes, local beef and sustainable seafood. Service is consistently excellent. The Liberty Tavern brunch is outstanding as well.

Great brunch menu. Located right in the city. The place has outdoor seating which is small, but nice.
