The Tavern Kitchen & Bar - CWE Ratings and Reviews
This was first time at the central west end location. My partner and I ordered shrimp and grits and the chicken and waffles . The shrimp and grits were served cold, the chicken and waffle were pretty good but would have expected a garnish or some unique twist. Both of us agreed that the food was not up to the other locations dinners that we had had before.
Most bothersome was the check was inaccuarate. After we left we added up the cost of the items and realized that we must have been given another persons bill. We had been over charged by at least 30 bucks.
My friend said that he overheard another table talking about an inaccuarate bill as well.
This is such a nice location. Hopefully it will get better.
Had a nice seat by the window and the service was excellent from seating to goodbye. The starter was good, but not spectacular. Also shared a beet salad which was delicious. I ordered the seafood trio; very good, but wasn't very hot. My fiancée had the surf and turf; same for her food. The desserts sounded excellent, but we were too full to partake. The Tavern is one of my go-to restaurants and I will absolutely be back. I did feel a bit of a breeze from the air conditioning, so maybe that was the problem with the food being cool.
Came for Easter brunch. Everything was great. My husband only complaint was that I called a few weeks before reservation to see if menu would be pre fixe since it was Easter. I was told it would not be. I based my decision to book reservation on that info. When we arrived, it was pre fixe. Food was fabulous, but like limited. Disappointing when that happens. The carrot cake donuts were sublime. We honestly could have had those and nothing else. My frittata was overcooked. Husband loved chicken and waffles. Coffee good and service great. Would go back but not on a holiday.
Second visit a disappointment. The romaine lettuce in my salad was brown on the edges which should never happen. The seafood trio tasting board was disappointing. The stir-fry Ahi portion had very little flavor. The mahi was also nondescript. The crusted salmon was the best of the three. Very pretty presentation and good portion sizes.
TTFD ( time to first drink) was too long. Nobody waited on us. Pasta dish was terrible.. way too salty.. told that to the person that finally waited on us.. and he said.. oh., I'll let the kitchen know... no concession at all for the crummy food. A bit Expensive,, dinner for three 200+ bucks, it'll be a while before we are back., disappointed since we had good meals there before. Maybe just an off night,,
The food was wonderful, the CWE location is great, valet parking was perfect for my friend in crutches. The service was slow abs the waitress didn't check on us nearly enough. I've had better service there in the past though. Highly recommend checking this place out.
Was looking for a nice place to take clients to dinner in St Louis. Not real familiar with that city, so relied on reviews and online menus. Got really lucky finding this place. It couldn't have turned out much better. Tavern Kitchen was fantastic. Excellent food with a unique menu and top-notch service. Starters seemed pretty pricey but mains were fairly priced IMO. Overall an excellent experience.
Always willing to pay higher prices for exceptional meals. The restaurant did not live up to that standard. Above average food quality, low service quality, service and quality did not matching the price charged for entrées based on overall Value.
Really bad reception and vibe given by the maitre de well walking in. Not warmly welcomed, no smile and quite short and snippy attitude
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The menu offers something for everyone, and everything is rich in flavor. The service is excellent, and the atmosphere is wonderful. Parking can be a challenge in the area, so if you are making a reservation be sure to allow time to park the car.
Went for the first time for an Anniversary. Dining was nothing short of spectacular! The food was amazing. Honestly, top 3 restaurant that I've ever been to. Music was perfect for the setting along with a relaxed environment. Emily, our waitress, did a very very fine job as well. Going back for sure!
This was our first trip. It's located in the CWE and offered valet parking which helps. We were seated promptly and the server brought over some freshly baked biscuits which were very good. There were 3 of us and we wound up ordering the Tasting Board appetizer which was a combination of 3 of the offerings. My daughter especially like the Island Meatballs. The ahi tuna was good as was the other offering. For dinner 2 of us ordered the Tasting Board entree which is similar to the appetizer in the sense that you are given a sample of 3 different entrees. My wife ordered salmon from the fish selections. Overall, the food was good, not great. At what averaged out to $65 pp with drinks, I would expect the food to be better than good. Service was very good.
We have had a few lovely meals at The Tavern Kitchen, but on this occasion the kitchen was a disappointment. I ordered the surf and turf board, and my complaint centers on the flavor of the grilled beef. There was an overpowering flavor of char from the grill. Perhaps the grill grates needed a cleaning? Our other entree was the short rib tagliatelle. It was peculiar and excessively sweet, like someone emptied a jar of jelly into the meat sauce. My beet salad was nice, and our server was very pleasant. We'll give this restaurant another try next month or two.
