It was a pleasure to work with Linsey to develop the perfect buffet menu for our office party. The selections were some of the best of Taverna - orecchiete, short rib, taverna salad and others. Katelyn brought the order to the house and set up a beautiful presentation. She took the time to make sure the flow would be easy... More

Extremely pleased with our first dining experience at Taverna, and it won't be our last. My wife ordered several taps dishes and I had the smoked chicken - everything was delicious. They have a long happy hour so drinks were very reasonable. Only drawback on our visit to Taverna was the lack of parking in San Marco - we ended... More

Went for dinner with another couple on a Saturday night. Had reservations for 8:00pm. Arrived on time and the place was buzzing and packed. Host wanted to seat us at a high top pub table against the wall which seemed to be for over flow...we declined and waited about 15 minutes to be seated in a booth. Service was friendly... More

Have been there twice now, and both times the food was outstanding. Was there this past Friday and based on the activity my suggestion is that you make reservations. Small, but varied menu, always with some specials to choose from. Service is very friendly and professional. Not a super fancy place...you could dine in blue jeans, but certainly more upscale...

We enjoyed a meal here with all of us enjoying the food. Very rare. We had their wedge salad, pizza, and meatballs. All were flavorful and the staff was great. Everything we had was served with appetizing appearance and great flavor. When you're only here once, you wish you could try more choices.

Won't come again but it was okay. Very pleasant staff. We were seated deep into the restaurant behind a large wooden wall. When there was open seating on the lower level. We had a starter of banana bread but it was super over cooked verging on burnt. I make banana bread and I've never done that to it. We ordered... More

We stopped by Taverna while touring San Marco. It is just across the plaza. The décor of the restaurant is very nice, modern, trendy, simple, but very well executed. They have a limited menu, but you will find something. There are salads, pizzas, main courses. We had a fungi pizza with truffle oil and a grilled salmon over a Greek... More

My wife took me here for my birthday. When she made the reservation they offered her cookies for dessert or free champagne. She chose poorly as she chose the cookies but we were able to change it when we got there. We enjoyed a free glass of champagne and I ordered the hanger steak and she had the Pork chop,... More

Had the most amazing dinner for our 20th anniversary! My husband was familiar with Taverna as they have catered several business lunches he's attended but this was the first time for each of us to have dinner there. From the host to the wait staff everyone was extremely friendly and gracious. We were treated to a complimentary glass of champagne... More
