There used to be a girl behind the counter who was great! My only complaint is that the cocktails could be better, a lot better. The baby back ribs were old and were dry and tasteless. Enjoyed the hummus platter, which was shared between 3 people. After eating, my friend and I sat for another 20 minutes to soak up the atmosphere while catching up. I really hate writing negative reviews but we're hoping the happy hour service changes because we love this place too much!! The food was great, my father and Uncle, both being very opinionated loved everything they brought out. My Caesar Salad with chicken was great. Stars included the calamari, the baked clams, and the chicken cordon bleu.
The free happy hour food is the reason we come here over anywhere else in the area. So when you're on the market for some great American cuisine, check out Tavern 18. We both cleaned our plates, well he did, and I took some home for lunch the next day. The freshly baked garlic bread is something really special and served in individual baking dishes and replenished immediately when we asked. She sure had my back! The food was great, my father and Uncle, both being very opinionated loved everything they brought out.
Thus time just a waste of time and money. Because it was a large event, we had, both, a lot of trays-worth of bites and individual dishes. Staff was so welcoming, friendly, and attentive, the food was delicious, and the overall atmosphere of the restaurant was clean and cozy. They have an extensive list of drinks included and the place is usually not too crowded. The first time I went for the private party I tasted the eggs Benedict and the chicken Marsala and both were delicious. The fruit platter was really only grapes. The Napoleon cake was literally the icing on the top, fresh everything, bananas, strawberries and whipped cream! Had to get up to look for someone to get us more drinks.
Anyway, last week, my husband and I sat in the lovely dining room part of the restaurant on a Saturday night. They make a spicy mule w pineapples soaked in jalopeno juice? Service is terrible, very inattentive to our party of seven. If you've got the car, then we've got parking for you. Overall, still very much a positive experience. We ordered 30 mins ago and haven't received our food. I will highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for an enjoyable meal.
But when she did check on us, she was sweet and quick if we needed anything. The beers on tap are very good and the selection is good. Server Nicole is awesome, she is always is very friendly. Will not be going back! Oh and always ask for more of the house bread! The atmosphere is very relaxed, decor is nice, a little dark for my liking but overall very nice. Their new selection of desserts are amazing! We had an excellent experience from start to finish. The bar was pretty lively too.
Hosted my sisters 40th surprise party there tonight and the staff who worked the party I wish I remembered one specific young ladies name, but she was our main server was so attentive to our needs every minute, was even willing to help me set up before everyone got there. The table service is great and food is tasty and can be ordered for take out as well. Swing by Sundays for our popular brunch. She has trouble running both the bar and making the restaurant drinks. I'm in a big group and the waiters are like straight up ignoring us.
Hosted my sisters 40th surprise party there tonight… Bruno and his staff are actually pretty amazing. It does not seem that the dishes were prepared with the attention required. The waffles and pancakes looked nice. Nicole was our server and was right on top of everything. Meals at Tavern 18 are moderately priced? Why not bring samples to your customers? My sister had the brunch package, the white sangria was great! The venue itself is very nice. The restaurant was not full on a Saturday evening, yet drinks took quite some time to arrive.
Would definitely get it again. Up for grabs and free of charge is Tavern 18's wifi. I have always enjoyed coming to this local spot for happy hour. I had the white sangria as well! It was absolutely delicious and since then, I've ordered it each time I eat here. It was a show stopper. The marinated lambchops were over seasoned.
I usually venture out to Manhattan for brunch and it was nice to know a local spot offers such an amazing brunch. The two Cobb salads were skimpy and were missing the eggs. Our waitress was absolutely awesome you know who you are ; and kept the beer and wine coming. Hosted my sisters 40th surprise party there tonight and the staff who worked the party I wish I remembered one specific young ladies name, but she was our main server was so attentive to our needs every minute, was even willing to help me set up before everyone got there. A few of us had nausea and stomach issues afterwards. The place is very nice. The blackened sauce on it was ok.
Here waiting for service, it fucking sucks. The prices are a little higher than average for a restaurant in this area but worth every single penny. Thank you for such a lovely dining experience Tavern 18! For dinner a must have is the swordfish. The flier mignon is superb. On the level of the best calms I've ever had Don Peppe. The food was great, my father and Uncle, both being very opinionated loved everything they brought out. Highly recommend stopping in for a drink.
