Live music was a nice touch. Good excellent. Waiter came across as disingenuous, though he was nice enough.

Every Thursday love to come in after work for a cocktail. RJ is amazing and can make any drink you can dream up - though they won’t be as good as his concoctions.

Calamari is the BEST around. Sausage and broccoli rabe is consistently good but only if you order extra cherry peppers (which actually seem more like pickled jalapeños). The garlic bread which was once one of the best things on the menu is so inconsistent I almost hate to order it. Sometimes it has cheese, sometimes no. Sometimes it has hot Italian long peppers, sometimes burned and sometimes missing. But when it’s good it goes so well with the meatballs and sausage apps.

- Outside dining quite poor. Located on their driveway that slants downhill.
- Outside dining seemed very crowded; not comfortable it was adhering to CDC standards. Also ... some staff were not wearing masks properly. Perception is that little attention is paid to cleanliness which is so important today.
- Stained, remnants of dried food and/or chipped dishes and coffee cup ... seriously.
- Food was good. :)

Would not recommend. Much better (and cleaner) choices in the area for the $$$.

Usually love love love the garlic bread with long Italian peppers paired with the meatballs but the garlic bread was dry, missing cheese and the peppers were shriveled and stringy. Cocktails and calamari never fail to please.

Outdoor dining is comfortable except for the steep pitch of the driveway. Looking forward to the day we can go in and enjoy at the bar like we used to.

First we have to thank Nicole who is an awesome server . She truly went out of her way with suggestions and even asked the chef to make a change to one of the meals which was amazing . For apps we shared the meatballs , which are the best in the world (seriously ) , the burrata and their unique signature Calamari . All were amazing . For dinner we had the Pappardella Lobster Fra Diavlo which was so fresh and tender , the butchers hanger steak , also amazing and so tender , the rib special and the Chicken Franzese . Everyone enjoyed everything . 5 of us total and we shared the blueberry cobbler dessert and the s’mores desert . Also excellent . So happy to have them open again . A must if you live in the area

We sat in the covered patio area in the rear of the restaurant, for a drink and a couple of appetizers... we thoroughly enjoyed our experience there - ordered the iceberg wedge salad, and the family-sized meatballs. Both were excellent. The only frustrating thing was the fact that their back patio area is actually a portion of the parking area that they've converted, and the slope of the ground is pretty significant. Not really anything that can be done about that, though.

Lunch alone in temporary outdoor tent. They made the best of it. Hard to hear and difficult with masks and accents.
Fried calamari and meat balls were very good. Sausage in rabe dish was tasteless.
Worth another visit.

I went there 2 weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised that they had a guitar player/singer. I asked and they said there is entertainment on Wednesdays. Because of this, I made a reservation last night for 6:45. I called in the afternoon beforehand and asked when the music starts to be sure my reservation was not too early. The gentleman told me that the music starts at 6pm. I was disappointed to arrive for dinner and there was no entertainer whatsoever. I turned down live music at the Warren Municipal Park to hear music at this restaurant only to get nothing!!! Food was good, though but I think I deserve an explanation...,

This is one of our new go to restaurants. Since we went on Saturday, and most people were avoiding crowds, it was very quiet.

The service has always been wonderful, with the owner stopping by to make sure that everything was okay.

Would highly recommend.

Waiter canceled one diners meal from table. Had to wait an extra 10+ minutes for a salad with chicken. Apologized but should’ve camp’s something for MAJOR inconvenience and disruption to dinner. Unfortunate might not return.

Very nice restaurant. Was disappointed at first that the bar would make a dark and stormy with light rum and think no one would notice. (Thus the name)! Was very appreciative that the Manager agreed and quickly removed the drink and had it prepared with dark rum. Everything else was perfect. The calamari and garlic shrimp appetizers were delicious along with the beet salad. All steak Dinner entrees and the lamb special were fantastic. Service was very attentive ...Will definitely return.

This is now the second time that I have taken my girlfriend here and we both had a wonderful experience on both occasions. The atmosphere is great, perfect lighting and quiet. Servers and staff went above and beyond, with even the chef coming out to speak with us. The prime rib is perfect and the chicken au vin was the lady’s choice on both occasions. Also I should mention the creme
Brûlée was quite possibly the best I have ever had.

Waited to write a review till I’d dined here 5+ times. This location has flipped numerous times in the past 7 years. The Tavern, hopefully will have a long tenure. Restaurant interior is very nicely done. Tables are nicely spaced while preserving a very nice atmosphere. The decor is warm and inviting but not stuffy or pretentious. The service has been extraordinary on each of our visits (and that includes parties of 2 (multiple times), 4, and 6. Friendly, attentive and professional is a combination that makes the experience headed for truly special ... if the kitchen delivers. At the Tavern, the kitchen delivers. This is a neighborhood restaurant yet in the same week, I had a burger with fries both here and at ABC Kitchen in Manhattan and while both were very good, the burger, and especially the fries were better here. We’ve tried many of the selections and have never been disappointed. Hint: the bar menu offers some simple but very good basic fare. The pastas are excellent. Give the Martinsville Tavern a shot!
