Great place to go with a friend or kids. Food is good -especially the pizzas. TV screens on a variety of channels have something for all. Pleasant atmosphere and fireplace is cozy.

Food is overpriced and didn’t taste good. Waitress wasn’t busy but still took long time to wait on us or check in. Prob won’t ever go back.

Overall good but the two people in our party who had burgers had them over cooked. One out of the two had a burger that was completely burnt on the bottom. Everyone else’s food was good.

First time trying City Tavern. I had heard good reviews from a coworker. We went for Father's day. We had a reservation for 4 @ 5pm. We were seated promptly. Not many there. Server started out ok, but as crowd slowly grew service went down. Although, it was much less of a crowd than most places on a holiday. There wasn't a wait. I ordered the flat iron steak and shrimp and so did my husband . My steak was overcooked and the shrimp were cold and looked and tasted half raw. The meal was supposed to come with a baked potato but was served with fries with no explanation. When I inquired I was told they were out of baked potatoes would I like another side instead. My husband's food was not much better, fortunately he will eat a well done steak with steak sauce. Thank goodness for A1. We ordered dessert to go, the Dirty Vegas, large chocolate chip cookie with ice cream. We had two orders and both cookies were inedible. They were burnt and had a greasy taste. Our kids said their food was ok, cheese pizza and a cajun chicken sandwich. The manager did try to make it right. By the time the waitress checked on us again after we received our food, my children had finished. They took my meal off the bill and gave us one free dessert. I left there over $100 broker and still hungry. Maybe their bar food is ok, just not steak, shrimp or desserts. Will not be trying again any time soon, if ever.

I would have liked to be seated in the dining room it they sat us in the bar area which was so loud we couldn’t even talk to each other. Very dissatisfied with the food. Extremely buttery and oily. I thought it was supposed to be upper class but apparently you can go into this restaurant with flip flops and a tank top. Very disappointed, the only good thing was a nice server.

Great meal, enormous and delicious side salad, delicious and perfectly done asparagus, tender shrimp that was added to Mac and cheese can’t be beat, wonderful window seating, excellent cocktails. Vegas sundae was terrific. Bisque was so so - will not order again.

When we were waiting for our table we went up to the bar to get a drink. The women bartenders kept ignoring me. I flagged one down to tell her I wanted a glass of wine. She looked at me and then proceeded to ignore me again to get the people sitting next me their 2nd drink before I even got my 3rd. Waited 20 minutes and finally our table was ready. Still never got my drink at the bar.

We walked into City Tavern at 5:30 on a Friday evening. Immediately the noise from the right side of the restaurant was so loud that we had to practically yell at the hostess to tell her that we had a reservation. We were seated on the left side of the restaurant that quickly became very noisy. The food was good.

Food was good, pricing was so-so. My boyfriend got a special and though 90% of the items on the menu are under $25, the special was $36. Way more than we were planning on spending! He also said the steak was not good at all and definitely not worth $36. Overall, the rest of the food was delicious!

Evening out with friends...We had no idea that Tuesdays were $5.00 burger days! We all ordered the burger, and added salads and wine. Everything was excellent (super burgers!)...Food, service, atmosphere. We will definitely be going back.

I ordered the beet salad and it was amazing. My husband ordered a pepperoni pizza and he said it was pretty good. Our waitress was almost over attentive. She asked us 8 times if we needed another drink when we had 2 almost full beers on the table. We drove and one beverage was all we wanted. It was unusual to be asked so many times to order another drink, which we did not. A little pushy but was still a good experience.

Stopped by City Tavern after reviewing their menu which indicated a few gluten free dishes which sounded good. Upon arrival, the first item we wanted to order (Avacado poppers) were out of stock because they are going to be changing the menu in a few weeks. We discussed entrees and decided on the ribs which were listed as gluten free. The waitress said she thought the menu was a misprint and the ribs were not gluten free, so we asked her to confirm with the kitchen and she came back and let us know the ribs are not gluten free, despite being listed as such in the menu. So we went to the next choice, a half chicken. This was also out of stock. At this point we decided to make plans and go eat down the road at Bonefish grill. A manager stopped over to apologize and say that the ribs actually are gluten free as they recently changed the BBQ sauce, but the kitchen said otherwise so not worth the risk. The waitress and manager were pleasant but this was very disappointing. I know some items can run out of stock but this was an abnormal amount to be out of stock. As they prepare to change the menu, it would be better if they removed items or blacked them out from the printed menu. Also, if you are going to list items as having a particular allergy it is best to have the staff trained about them. If the waitress and chef indicate something contains an allergy, it makes it difficult to trust the manager when he says they are wrong as it sounded like he was just trying to get us to stay and order. We won’t be back to try a second time.

The Montana Berger was wonderful. The barbecue sauce added an incredible flavor. The fries were perfectly prepared. My wife had the Crispy Buffalo Chicken Salad. Apparently the chicken is breaded in-house and made the salad delectable.

It was very busy which is great for the business. However extremely loud that it was tough to hold a conversation with my daughter sitting right next to me. Was hoping the room opposite the bar was a little quieter but still very loud. Food and service was very good.

Service was wonderful.
Food not so good!
The Reubens were over cooked, corned beef tough.
The chicken French special was awful.
Overall was very, very salty. The pasta was like mush!
Not my expectation of Chicken French whatsoever!!!

It is more of a “bar restaurant” than I was told. Salmon entree and chicken on the salad was overcooked. Bacon on my burger seemed to be the previous days.

It was an extremely busy night due to the Syracuse game being televised. We were seated right away to our table but had to wait for a while before our waitress came over to get our drink orders. The bar was packed as was the entire restaurant so it took a while for drinks to finally arrive. They certainly could’ve used another two bartenders due to the volume of people. The food was outstanding and other than a very high noise level I would certainly go back.

This was our second time at the restaurant. The food was amazing as was the service that we received from our server. However, when our main course came out it wasn't hot. Not at all! The ribs were like at room temperature and we told our server. He took them back and said he would make the chef aware. When the ribs came back out they were warm/hot and delicious. They took our appetizer off our bill, which wasn't necessary, but much appreciated that they are accountable for the mix up.

Unfortunately our sons meal was inadvertently delivered to another table. We were there 2hours :05 mins, with hungry kids.The manager compensated us for the meal which was great, But my filet was cold and over cooked as I am sure they were trying to figure out what happened.

We had gone there for Valentine’s Day and it was so good we went back with the kids.
Probably a one-time issue here. The Mgr handled it well though.

I would still recommend.
