I have been to Sun Tavern a few times, and decided to write now after going for my birthday a few days ago. As usual, the restaurant was cozy, I love the ambiance in this great old building. Our server the other night was Dazerai, she was EXCELLENT!!! She suggested the drink special: apple cider, vanilla vodka and champagne with a cinnamon sugar rim. She was very attentive, and the food was excellent (i had the scollops my boyfriend had the pork chop). The bar area is very inviting too! I can't wait to go back !!

I've been to this restaurant several times in the past 2 years. The ambiance is great and the service, especially Sasha in the bar area, is awesome! I was a little disappointed in the food on my past visit but it is usally great. Steak was good but soup was luke-warm at best and way overpriced - the bowl literally had 4 spoonfuls. This is not typical of my experience here and I hope it wa just a one off.

The restaurant recommends its specialty prime rib which I decided to try for the first time. While cooked to medium rare as requested the meat was a little tough. I like prime rib that just melts in your mouth. Salads, sides and other companion's meals were fine so next time I need to make a different selection.
