Just awesome. This is our go to place for business and private dinners and entertaining.
Kristy the hostess was awesome!...Everyone was lovely and very accommodating, despite being early for our 8 pm reservation, we were seated right away on a busy Thursday evening
Exceptional... as usual.
Our waiter was amazing. Super friendly and caring. Food was incredible too. Highly recommend the sharing steak, which is a bit pricey but sooo good.
We dine here every time we visit Vancouver. The staff couldn’t be more friendly and professional. The food is always excellent. Portions are large and we always order too much, but it is so good we always finish it. Never disappointed
Tavola and it's sister restaurants never disappoint. Great food and service, always creative specials and vibrant room. Only negative is it gets noisy.
Fantastic Italian food out of the ordinary. Great scene, nice people and staff, very decent wine list.
Most of the food was ok, but the squid ink special tasted old with mealy, dry lobster meat.
Tavola ticks all the boxes; great food, great service, great ambience. I’m a huge fan of Tavola, Nook and Oddfish because their entire staff at all restaurants seem to love their jobs, love the clientele and it makes the experience so much better than just coming for fantastic food.
Superb food with wonderfully fresh ingredients.
I’ve gone to Tavola before and would have given it 4 stars. The dishes we chose (both from the board) though were too peppery for me though. They were the squid ink pasta and the cod. I know the food there is usually outstanding so I would go with the old favorites like the ragu and the brick chicken.
Tavola always delivers. On this evening, there was a very large party, so it was loud! But once we got used to the volume, we had a fabulous night as expected. Our food (which we shared, was delicious, generous and perfectly cooked. A great place to celebrate a birthday with friends! Good service too!
The service was wonderful and the food was great. I would love to go back.
We had a wonderful birthday dinner at Tavola. The food was excellent as well as the drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). We were impressed with all of the menu choices and the number of specials. The service was great and we will definitely return!
Loved our meals. Great service. Food was fantastic and not salty! Flavorful. Colorful. Interesting. Tasty. Fresh:). Locally sourced ingredients. Great for sharing. Awesome value
We really enjoyed our meals except for the rib steak, which was gristly and somewhat underdone (disappointing, esp given the high price). The appetizers, salads and pastas were great! The wine was well paired. We did not appreciate the upselling on the part of our server (who said he'd been there for many years and, therefore, knew how much food we should order). He was insistent on us ordering more than we really wanted, and we didn't eat it all. We ordered an expensive protein as well as the chicken special and 3 bottles of wine (for 6 people), finishing with a bill close to $400, so we were not trying to be economical -- just cognizant of how much we wanted to eat. We arrived at 6:00 and were instructed to take the table by the door even though we were only the second party to arrive. There were several other empty tables for 6 that we asked about but were told to take the one by the door. It was the first time at the restaurant for 3 members of the party, so being by the door (and the drafty sliding door to the patio) detracted somewhat from the experience. Just to say that the service did make a difference. We'll try it again to see if the latter is better. If so, we'll recommend to our friends and colleagues. If not, we won't. Thanks for reading.
A wonderful dining experience. The service was excellent and the food was incredible. I would highly recommend.
All in all a great experience. Food was excellent! Going back for sure.
The food was delicious as expected.
Kenton was a great server. Go now !
Make a reservation though.
Good food and service. The menu was small and limited in its offerings. Need more food options to pick from. We will be returning in the future.
Overall, quite excellent, but I do put a lot of emphasis on service which was slightly lacking, hence the 4 stars; our server seemed quite knowledgeable about the menu although he was quite aloof and seemed like he was too cool to serve us so it felt quite awkward.. other than those instances throughout our meal, everything else was great. The regular menu seemed lacking to us, but the daily specials is where it's at! Our whole meal came from the specials (appy and entrees) and it seemed all of the tables around us ordered mostly from it too. Food was amazing! Our favourite was the trout. Highly recommended.
Excellent overall experience
Fantastic as always, the food is to die for and the sticky toffee pudding is superb!
My last dining experience at Tavola was out of the norm. The pasta dishes were extremely salty. The service was good but no discount or anything offered to apologize for the overly salted food.
Tavola is one of our favourite restaurants! I can't not order the gnocchi -- it's too good! But you can't ignore their extensive specials list either.
impressed with the food quality and creativity. The server was very well informed and the service attentive.
We both enjoyed the pork pasta dish and the sticky pudding dessert was delicious.
The food was good and so was the service. It was a bit loud. All in all a good night out
Great spot. The owner stop by our table went over the menu and specials. Food was fantastic. Will be back.
Always such a great meal and overall experience when we come to Tavola!!
Love Tavola! Been a Regular for years:) This is my go to spot for when I am craving a good bowl of Pasta!
Atmosphere was convivial and welcoming. Superb guidance from the server. Plates are for sharing so mix it up. It's not a place for quiet conversations, so enjoy the energy of other happy diners having a wonderful meal. Loved it!
The food is quite wonderful. It is crowded for a reason.
A larger version of The Nook, Tavola is another gem in the neighborhood. The cacio e pepe was pretty good, the crostini's always well done and the sea bass was excellent. My date had a steak which I tried and it was similarly terrific.
It was just terrible, the waiter wasn't helpful at all, food was BAD.
It was definitely a bad experience for our anniversary.
We gave Value a medium star as we were treated to dinner.. however we have eaten at Tavola many times and always feel we get a great deal for such a delicious dining experience.
I think the food made my fiance sick. It was too spicy or oily for her.
Tavola is one of the best restaurants in Vancouver. Absolutely amazing antipastos, pasta, and mains. Amazing service and a great wine selection! Great to bring family, a date, a business contact or anyone.
love this neighbourhood place that treats regulars well and is generous to newcomers. warm atmosphere and delicious food enlivens conversation!
