3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I came with a large group for dinner, and I thought it was an okay meal. I wasn't impressed with the service, since it seemed to take a while for a waiter to come by and ask me what I wanted to drink and eat. I had to let the waiter know that I didn't have a menu, so I... More

We read the reviews on various site before we visited Taverna for the first time so we had high expectations. The food is on par with some of the best restaurants in New York City. Interior is beautiful too (outdoor seating is available if you wish to bring you pet monkey), and the service was ultra smooth. We'll be back... More

We went on a recommendation from friends for my boyfriend's birthday. There were 5 of us. Our server (I think his name was Ryan) was so friendly and helpful. The wine he assisted us in choosing was excellent. The craft beer menu could be extended but I loved that they had local beers-Aardwolf.The food was really delicious. We had a... More

We went to Taverna yesterday for lunch. We are planning our return brunch and dinner visits this A.M. Let me start with the service...all the staff was friendly and it was obvious that they work as a team. There was no sense of "that's not my job or table." Everyone was part of our dining experience! Next, there is the... More

I will be back because I love the fact that no servers were rushing us to eat, pay and and go. I had time to enjoy the company of my friends. They said that the food they ordered was amazing. I ordered Margarita pizza and it was the most horrible pizza I've ever tried, but the artisan strawberry gelato saved... More

Food was exceptional and Healthy. Atmosphere Pleasant. Our first time here. Looking forward to going again in the near future. We had dinner, but would be great for grabbing some appetizers, or cheese meat platter with a bottle of wine. Service was outstanding.

My husband and I went for dinner and it was pricey, but delightful. The parmesan truffle fries appetizer were DELICIOUS! My husband had the wedge salad and I had the barrata mozzarella caprese salad that was yummy, although I would prefer balsamic vinegar to the fig chutney. I had the ravioli and added the hanger steak to it, and although... More

This restaurant has a beautiful, locally sourced menu. We had excellent service, and everything from the appetizers to dessert was clearly carefully considered by the chef and staff. I am a picky eater who looks for healthy but tasty, fresh options and this is a perfect, upscale spot for this! The space is calming and well-appointed, not noisy. Great wine... More
