This is my second time visiting this restaurant, and I have to say that I was way more impressed with it than my first visit. I wrote a review awhile back, and I didn't give Tavernita that great of a rating so I feel I...More

We reserved for an 8pm reservation. We got right in and did not have to wait. Variety of food was very nice. We even got seconds of the musscles as it was so good. Drinks were good and quick.

We chose Tavernita on the recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. With four in our party, we chose about six diverse "small plates" of food, thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Went her with a friend for my birthday. Great food for sharing and nice, vibrant energy. Cocktails were wonderful, too.
