    Love the food, the service, the visual of the bar, and I mostly appreciate that you can talk to and hear everyone else in your party. Menu items are limited, but they are really good at what they do!

    I have been here several times and it is always great! The service is always on point. The menu isn't huge, but what they do, they do well! I suggest any of the following: Ahi Nachos, Bruschetta, Wagyu Tenderloin, Mardi Gras Pasta, Parmesan Chicken, and the Boursin Mashed Potatoes. Also try one of the bubbly cocktails....

    Great food selection and it surprised us on the quality. You definitely need a reservation since it is small. Don’t let the outside fool you. Just go inside and enjoy.

    Made reservations for my wife and I for dinner here the day after Valentine's day. Was our first time dining there and our waitress new this. She quickly went over the menu on a tablet which was a little bit confusing. So when she came back we ordered an appetizer and she asked if we were ready to order our dinner which at that point we were. Ordered a couple of steaks and then she walked away, she didn't ask us if we wanted any sides like a salad or what kind of potatoes they had. After getting her attention again and asked about the sides she just told us it comes with fries and that seemed like that was our only option, we also ordered a salad and shared it. The appetizer and steaks were great but way overpriced. The place is very small which is disappointing, because the seating is very close, I'm talking within an arm length distance and could easily hear the conversation next to you. The atmosphere is confused. Unfortunately we will not go back.

    Food is always delicious, good happy hour specials and some good Moscow mule options in addition to wine, etc. The only downside is that it’s a very limited menu that doesn’t seem to change much. They do it well but it would be nice to have some new options.

    Nice intimate setting but tables are very close that we ended up in a conversation with our neighbors. We had a reservation, and after being seated we were asked to move tables which seemed rude. And for the next 2 hours that we were there no sat in the table we had to get up from. touchscreen tablets are very bright compared to the dark intimate setting which hurt my eyes. The food was good but over priced. Make sure to get a reservation.

    We really enjoyed our experience at Tavern 180. My son and I ordered the center cut filet. We found it to be the BEST steak we have ever eaten, cooked exactly how we requested. We also love the boursin mashed potatoes! The drinks were also unique and wonderful.

    Nice staff, menus are on iPad's, drinks were reasonably priced, nice wine list. I had fish and chips, the breading was very bland but the fries were good. My date had the parmesan crusted chicken that she said was good. Place looked closed upon arrival.. Few cars and dark entry.

    This place is definitely more bar than restaurant. That said, the food was quite good and the service was definitely attentive. The burger in particular is worth the stop.

    Leave the kids at home. Not a family place: no kids menu or toddler cups here, but the dark, sophisticated ambiance would be good for date night.

    The filet and potatoes are always good. One of my guests at the table said the fish-and-chips aren't as good as they used to be. There is more breading than fish in them.

    The service was excellent and the food was very good, particularly the appetizers and sides. The main dishes were less than deaireable and extremely overpriced for what you get. We would recommend Tavern 180 for just drinks and appetizers, no full meals.
