We selected this restaurant for brunch because it was close by and had gluten-free options for a member of our party with Celiac disease. The food was quite heavy and pricey but tasty. I could only eat half of my meal, but felt it "weigh me down" for a couple of hours afterwards.

Had a fabulous first experience at The Tavern in Valley Park. However, our experience was not as stellar at the CWE location.
The food was not nearly as impressive, the servers were very rushed, and the atmosphere was so loud you could barely hear the people speaking across from you.
When our waitress asked if we wanted dessert, we kindly mentioned the people we were with we're having us back to their house for dessert instead, she still continued on with a 3 minute diatribe of the restaurants dessert menu, despite our declination. We weren't sure if she was on autopilot, or if it was just so loud she didn't hear us.
Not to mention parking was atrocious- we had to park 7 blocks from the restaurant.
Not to say we wouldn't patronage this location again, but it wouldn't be our first choice.

I have been to Tavern many times and except for one occasion the food and service is always right on. I love their Sushi roll, tuna poke and several of the tasting boards. Great restaurant for special
Occasion --or not. We brought someone new

This vintage chic restaurant featured a quick variety of seafood and meat options. We appreciated the "flight"/trio of sample entrees to try their exquisite variations. Our waiter was very attentive to our needs and brought out a garlic crusted pull-apart mini loaf that satiated our palate until the main course arrived.

We decided to try somewhere new for date night and it was phenomenal. The entree trios were mouthwatering selections with robust flavors. We ran out of time to try the dessert menu so we are going back.
The Tavern should be on everyone's list in St. Louis.

The Tavern is a fun place, ambiance is excellent, in old brick building. Food was very good, always well prepared, a bit pricey. Menu identical to west county sister restaurant. Overall, a great restaurant, one of my favorites in the Central West End.

Very happy overall. 2nd visit. Had the chefs trio. The food was good overall, but I felt the risotto on the scallop dish was under seasoned. Mainly lacking salt. Love the atmosphere, and service is great. The sushi roll served as an appetizer is incredible.

service was left wanting. the food was served cold, sent back, returned just as cold. we were given desserts on the house for our troubles, and we were served not what we ordered and could not find anyone to help us. NEVER GO HERE!!

We went for my best friends birthday. Our service was outstanding. Our waitress was engaging and the bartenders were helpful. There was not one thing we ordered for dinner that wasn't excellent. Location and ambiance were great as well. Birthday boy had an amazing time as did all his friends. Absolutely recommend this place!

Everything we had was great. They have excellent cocktails which is a must in the STL restaurant scene. The Brussels sprouts are worth trying if you love Brussels sprouts. The squid ink pasta with scallops was delicious. Can't go wrong with the Filet Trio. The chocolate cake dessert was worth the calories.

WOW! Executive Chef Harold Sexauer has shown some true creativity in the design of his menu. He obviously created so many wonderful dishes that he had to offer "The Tasting Boards". When I saw the menu (on Line) I had no idea what I would order. There were just too many great choices. So, "The Tasting Board" choice was the only way to sample this Chef's creations. Our server James was outstanding We would ask for him on our next visit) and made excellent recommendations. My wife had the filet trio & I had the Oak Plank. Just excellent!!
I had read that the bread served could be the reason you would visit the Tavern. Well it is that good. A great starter is the "Surf & Turf Sushi Roll".
If you like a creative cuisine this is the spot.

This was my second time there for the seafood sampler - delish!! We ate too much and then heard about the amazing desserts! We'll be back for sure!! It's loud but a fun crowd, and wouldn't be appropriate for a quiet romantic dinner; however, the food is AMAZING!!

Really enjoyed our dinner here on October 15th a group of friends. Everyone loved their entrees and the scallops that I had were terrific. Everyone in the restaurant was friendly and attentive. I will definitely come back !

Excellent dinner. Couldn't decide on just one entree so had the oak plank trio...chicken saltimbocca, filet with grilled shrimp, and mahi with wok veggies. Parmesean garlic pull-apart biscuits were a great starter and gooey butter cake with homemade blueberry ice cream was a great finish. Nice wine list and delicious coffee. Excellent service too!

This was my first visit to this location since an old favorite left (the prior restaurant at this location, Duff's). I was extremely pleased by all aspects of our dinner. Creative dishes, a wonderful specialty bread offered as part of the meal at the beginning, unique cocktails, an attentive manager and knowledgeable waiter made this a fantastic dining experience. I can be picky, but The Tavern was excellent in all respects. We will be back.
Great fish dishes as always. The halibut ...
Great fish dishes as always. The halibut was cooked perfectly, paired with the caponata sauce. Asian salad was crisp and the ginger peanut dressing was perfectly umami. Loved the cinnamon donuts with maple bacon whipped cream.
My favorite side dish is the tater tot Casserole! It's like a creamy Mac and cheese, only with tots instead of Mac.
A little on the pricey side, but perfect for special occasions.
