We ate at Taverna twice during a short stay in Jacksonville. During dinner we were a little disappointed. My pasta was a little too al dente. My husband ordered the sautéed mussels and clams. His dish was very small for the price but very tasty. We returned to the restaurant the next day for Sunday brunch and were very pleased.... More

Chic decor. Farm to table cuisine. Delicious entrees. Reasonable, but not cheap, prices. What's not to like? And, they make a pretty darned good dry martini. This is a great neighborhood restaurant.

The restaurant is loud, noisy and not conducive to a pleasant dining-out experience, If you want a quick meal with the "in-crowd" perhaps this is the place. The menu is limited in variety and scope. Salads are large but not unusual. The beef and chicken dishes are perhaps their best offering.

I waited a month to cool down enough to write this review. We arrived n time and looking forward to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We were seated next to a table of ten folks who had obviously been over-enjoying the cocktail hour. they were so loud we could not hear each other much less our server. I went to the... More

The food is always good, service quite good and wine choice excellent. The price point is fair and even better during happy hour. I often take a business lunch to Taverna.

It has been quite some time since we have been to Taverna - we decided recently to give it a shot. This San Marco central business district is one of the most appealing historic commercial neighborhoods in Jacksonville. The hostess gave us a blank stare when we arrived - gee, a welcoming smile is a much better way to begin... More

4 of us went early Sunday afternoon for brunch and the experience couldn't have been more magical. From the host at the door, and a very positive vibe, we were seated quickly and brought waters. We had amazing drinks and had a hard time deciding what to eat since it was all very tempting and unique. As the menu says... More

Taverna is located in the central area of trendy and hip San Marcos. The area is chocked full of restaurants, shops, and some clubs. I'd suggest you visit San Marcos the next time you're in JAX. Taverna is smallish but interestingly appointed. They have rustic wood walls, trendy lighting, and the bar is very attractive. We were there on a... More

Our Porsche Club had dinner and were able to reserve one side of the restaurant. This is in the nice neighborhood of San Marcos. There is not a parking lot and street parking is scarce, but parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood. There is a nice bar serving local spirits from St. Augustine Distillery. Our food was great, and... More

I've been to taverna couple of times before for dinner, and I enjoyed it every time! Today we tried it for lunch and I was really impressed with their lunch/brunch menu and the variety as well as the reasonable prices! It was an excellent choice, everything tasted more than perfect!
