The Tavern is a fantastic place, with one of the most magnificent views of the Boston skyline available -- if you're lucky enough to be seated by a window... or in the main room even. Our dining experience took place in a back room, without windows. They don't take reservations, so on a weekend you can expect a 15-45 minute wait and poor seating, in which case The Tavern compares with any standard hotel restaurant.

Our waitress was clearly new and inexperienced and had no idea what she was doing. I ordered my steak very rare and got it back medium well. I sent it back and got a new serving without vegetables. I had to ask to get a steak knife, for water refills, what the specials were, for the wine list, etc. An ordered glass of wine was forgotten. The bar was understaff, and the two bartenders stressed out and not nice.

Food overall was so-so, served cold and without much inspiration, finesse or love. This is not a place to go for a dine-dining or gourmet experience. Maybe our expectations were too high with prices of $25-$30/entree, but the food at The Tavern was barely better than your standard sports bar or diner. I'd recommend the substantially less pricey sandwiches/burgers.
