Five Horses Tavern - Davis Square Ratings and Reviews
Handmade pretzel is great, mustard a bit spicy but delicious, and the boursin-like dip is very good. I had a kinda Cuban sandwich which was a nice interpretation of the sandwich, and my companion had the Tavern burger, cooked to perfection and delicious with cheesy grits.
Five Horses is a decent Davis Square spot. I was a little bummed out the most recent time I went (this past Saturday) because my boyfriend and I asked for a high top next to the window and were told they were reserved for parties of 3 or more, and shortly afterwards a couple was seated at the same table, alone. Our server was a little inattentive but he had a LOT of tables so that's forgivable. Overall nothing to keep me from going back, but worth noting.
Wonderful ambiance! Make sure to notice the cool chandelier in the entrance. We went for a pre-theater dinner and chose the perfect place! The grilled fish tacos were yummy and the perfect amount to eat after sharing the pan roasted brussels sprouts and beyond fantastic cornbread The cornbread could basically be your dessert :-) and everyone who works there seemed happy and they all worked as a team! Will definitely go back :-)
I had a great dinner with my friend here, but it was kind of an odd group the night we went and the service was really slow for drinks. Also my ex boyfriend walked in which was awkward*. There was a random woman downstairs who was barking....
*I know the restaurant cant control that but I hope it made someone laugh.
Five Horses never disappoints! This is a go-to for my sisters and I to grab some american comfort food that is always delicious. We can't go without ordering the corn bread and of course the tater tots! We have celebrated birthdays and other events with family when looking for a delicious meal with a good atmosphere. Nothing too fancy but quality food and drinks. highly recommend.
Delicious brunch with friends! I love the food at Five Horses. It is a little healthy, a little decadent, and not too expensive. Just like my kale/bacon/egg breakfast sandwich! I do wish they had espresso drinks, but their bloody marys are delicious. It is loud, but also easy to get a large table for a group.
I ordered a beer off the menu and was brought something else; when I mentioned this the server dismissively said that they did not have what I had ordered. Our waiter kindly explained that the menu was out-of-date and offered to get me something else, but the first experience was not very pleasant. Otherwise, the service and meal were very good; I come to Five Horses a lot and I typically enjoy it very much. The service is sometimes slow but the wait staff are usually polite and friendly, and the food and beer are always great.
The service was the best I've ever experienced on a Friday night! The bar was surrounded by people, we didn't know where to stand to order drinks, but one of the bar tenders came right over and handed us a menu! I was amazed at how he noticed us through the sea of people. Then right as we paid for the drinks the hostess came up and said our table was ready! 15 min early ! The food was great as well. This is definitely a repeat place for our night out
Vegan Veggie burger was so boring, bland, thin and crumbly - Bread ratio was way off too. Burger was pretty decent so said my dinner companion. Beer selection is the reason to return and server was very nice, even as it was extremely busy. Tables are very cramped so do not expect privacy.
Loved the food - my date and I shared a salad and pizza. Very good pinot noir! Very popular and, unfortunately, the server was swamped, but well-intentioned. One Big Complaint- the noise level was deafening! So loud, I would not go there on a romantic date.
