Recently our women's club Board of Directors lunched at Taverna. We had many different entrees and all were delicious. Several of us had the hangar steak which was tender and cooked perfectly. In addition, I brought home the meatballs for my husband and they were delicious as well. Service for this large party was spot on. All in all, a... More

The atmosphere is great and the weather happened to be perfect too. We sat outside on the patio and had a great time.t he food was exceptional and service was very good as well. The breakfast pizza (scrambled eggs, spinach, fresh tomatoes and goat cheese) and lemon Ricotta pancakes were our favorite!

Food was pretty good but for these prices it could be better. Tables are very close together which make it not very private. Service was average and they were very busy.

12 of us enjoyed an amazing social lunch meeting at Taverna San Marco and I recommend this highly to anyone. The various dishes served were all outstanding and none of us left hungry. If you are in the area, this is a restaurant you have to enjoy. GKP Clearwater, FL

Was in Jacksonville for the night and couldn't bare a hotel meal. A friend and I took and Uber here based on Trip Advisor ratings and were so happy we did. Had delicious food, although we chose small plates. We had meatballs, which were very good, the burratta plate that was divine and the most delicious butterscotch dish for dessert.... More

We like to break up our trip with dinner in Jacksonville- I did a little online research & Taverna had a 4.6 rating. I used OpenTable reservation & glad we did-- very busy at 7:45 pm on a Saturday. Location on San Marco Blvd very "happening" ~ moderately difficult to find parking. Decor very eclectic - loved that! Waiter friendly.... More

This restaurant gets the service right. We were visited by several people asking if everything was good. I wanted to say that our meals were "ok"--- but it didn't seem the time was right. We had a pasta special with chicken, short rib w/ orzo and the meatball appetizer. The short rib was the best, the meatball sauce was forgettable,... More

We enjoyed lunch at Taverna. The food was tasty and service was excellent. Lovely decor. I had the wild mushroom truffle pizza cooked perfectly. I recommend this restaurant when in the San Marco area of Jacksonville.

Many fun Mediterranean options on the menu with knowledgeable staff. Good ambiance and not too loud. (Avoid the tables directly in the front entrance at all costs).
