Tavern is the third restaurant from the chef and sommelier team of Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne, who also own Lucques restaurant and AOC winebar. This is their West Los Angeles outpost, which serves as a local gathering spot for the Brentwood crowd. Chicly designed by Jeffrey Alan Marks, Tavern encompasses three separate, yet connected spaces: a glass roofed atrium dining room, a large blue walled bar and a café space called the Larder that features casual dining, bakery, retail and prepared foods to go. The restaurant serves Suzanne Goin’s signature California/Mediterranean cuisine with just a touch of a classic American influence.

Tavern Ratings and Reviews
Made a last minute resy and requested seating at Atrium but only bar was available. However, the bar had happy hour until 7 pm which was a plus. Took a while before server asked about drinks but all was good after our drink order.
Food and drinks were great! The music was a bit too loud in the bar for my taste. People watching was enjoyable too!
For such a beautiful restaurant, the quality of the food is TERRIBLE. I have given this restaurant a chance since it opened years ago, hoping that each time something on the menu would be better. Unfortunately the ambiance and the cocktails are the only amazing thing. The food is so greasy and tasteless. I ordered the vegetarian entree and side of cauliflower. The cauliflower was so covered in oil, any and all nutritional value had been fried away. The vegetable dish was giant, semi-cooked, carrots in their entirety floating in unseasoned quinoa. So disappointing. Thankfully they brought back the simple salad so I did not completely starve. My friend ordered the turkey burger which was made of all dark meet and very fatty. I root for Tavern because the wait staff is pleasant and the bar scene is lively. Sadly both my table and the table next to us paid our bills with full plates of food left behind.
Wow, the service, which then makes it the experience, is HORRIBLE here. They could really use some pointers on how to treat people like they actually appreciate them coming into the restaurant. They act like it's a burden that we come dine there. Really, it's not that good for them to remotely act that way. From the rude and arrogant hostess to the lack of attention from the server, they act like this is some prime hot spot in LA that you can't get into. Bad experience, and certainly does not make me want to dine here again..which I would since the location and ambiance is nice. Hope management takes some note of this!
We went for my parents anniversary and all the staff were so kind and congratulatory! It's as if they had a morning huddle and notified all staff of this special occasion as when we were walking out they all said congratulations. They even brought a cake and candle out. Great service, great food and lovely ambiance.
We all really enjoyed our get together/ informal baby shower at Tavern. The service and drinks were amazing. The happy hour tacos were hit or miss (my duck confit taco had a bone and gristle ick! But my crispy fish taco was great) and the $6 price tag was a bit steep for ONE taco, most happy hour menus are a bit more generous with the portion. But the blue room was a great venue and our server really made the experience lovely.
The once beautiful sun drenched dining area looks worn and need of updating. The service was subpar...not thoughtful in any way. No gluten free options which seems lazy considering this is LA. Turkey burger was burned, my friends burger was too rare to eat.
The restaurant atmosphere is very pleasant. Even on a Tuesday at lunchtime, the patio dining area was nearly full. We were pleased to find that we could hear each other in conversation at a business lunch, and did not have to compete with noise from other diners, loud music, etc. The service was attentive, the food (two salads and a sandwich for the 3 of us) was plated very nicely and was fresh and delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to others.
The hostess seemed to be having a bad day. Seating with a snarl instead of a smile. Our waiter was fabulous...great wine/drink recommendations. The French fries were soggy. The onion rings were anemic looking. Not crisp. Wine was great; entrees were underwhelming.
Super atmosphere bar and happy hour was fun. Dinner in the strum was beautiful. Service was outstanding and the food was fabulous! Was a birthday celebration - they recommended the snickers bar - was delicious. They took very good care of us. Highly recommend it!
