Taverna is excellent. Great food and service. I had the Short Rib and my wife had the Orecchiette. Both awesome, especially the brussels sprouts with my entree! Also a great cheese plate. Highly recommend.

Great location, trendy inviting atmo, and good service. Too bad I wasn't impressed by my salad. Just ordered a salad with chicken... asked that it be blackened... Just not much flavour, and quality of the chicken wasn't that great.
