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!

After having read the reviews for the restaurant we were eager to try this restaurant on our first night visiting our daughter in Jacksonville. Unfortunately, we found the menu extremely limited. We ordered the manchego cheese platter for an appetizer to be split amongst the four of us. The piece of manchego cheese was so tiny that we hardly had... More

We had lunch here and were pleased with our selections. The soup of the day was okay though, not memorable enough to mention. But my salmon orzo salad was so tasty, it completely made up for the soup. Even leftovers the next were great. My husband had a creamy, tasty bowl of Orecchiette with a bolognese sauce, that had him... More

First time visit to Taverna. Very impressed with the friendly service. Even more impressed with the delicious steak, nicely seasoned and cooked to perfection. Look forward to returning soon.

Strolling around San Marco, my parents had mentioned how many times they had seen Taverna written up so we decided to to try for lunch with group of 7 (2 kids included). Menu had a lot of different options and wait staff was very helpful and attentive. Outside seating seemed nice, but was a tad chilly for taste. All of... More

Because we live in the neighborhood we have been patronizing Taverna since it opened. Along with spontaneous meals throughout the years we have had our family Christmas eve dinner there for the past 3 years. Sadly, we feel we can never go back. The quality of the food has declined, the service has become sloppy, the prices continue to rise... More

Good afternoon, Thank you so much for the feedback on your experience, and I would like to apologize for the delay in our response. Being that we are a family owned restaurant we tend to get stretched in many directions and yesterday evening I noticed your message and wanted to respond immediately. I wanted to let you know that your... More

Enjoyed people watching as much as the meal. Working execs, girls only lunch groups and distinguished looking retirees were par for course. Enjoyed the pizza and my apple pie dessert. Service good, nicely decorated and proves reasonable.
