Taverna on the Bay
As usual nothing but the best from Taverna on The Bay, from service to the food. Never disappoints!!
excellent food and service
enjoyed our meal very much
One of the best dining experiences on Staten island! Highly recommend!!!
Imagine a setting where you are no longer in Staten Island but find yourself in a luxurious place which would be found along the Mediterranean. You're greeted with fine aged cheese and only the most delectable libations. Waitstaff attends to your needs before you even think to call them and the food you receive transports you to a time and place far away where vacations are six weeks and life is comprised of love and family. That's Taverna on the Bay.
The best Restaurant on SI. We go there often
Amazing Food and wonderful staff
Apps were pricey shrimp cocktail was only3 shrimp.
Food was good.
Free olives, bread and parmesan cheese hunk.
Service was good.
Would go back.
Always good——but get Valet back. Very important!!
Excellent food, service and ambience! Cannot wait to return
First time at Taverna and would definitely go back. Great raw bar, nice ambience and attentive service without crazy prices. Chorizo appetizer was amazing. The chicken parm, ordered by someone else at the table, was enormous and delicious. Looking forward to trying the pizzas and some of the non-seafood entrees next time!
Restaurant has a great atmosphere, service and food are both excellent!!!
Fantastic service !!!!! All the employees are amazing ! Hands down the best restaurant on Staten Island. I have now even there twice in the matter of 2 weeks because it’s become a top favorite!
The food is always delicious. The service is top notch.
We loved it! The food was great, the service awesome and everyone very efficient and friendly. Will definitely recommend to friends!
Everything was delicious!
The staff was kind and respectful and the service was excellent. The grilled octopus was outstanding. Would definitely go back.
Best restaurant in SI. We go there often. Always great!!
Food and service were beyond expectations, We shared a grilled octopus for an appetizer, my wife had the Sole Oregano and I had the Black Linguini, one of the best Pasta Sauces I have had. We finished with a piece of Cheesecake and coffee. Paul and Alex took care of us. This is a definite return restaurant.
Our waiter was very gracious and not at all intrusive. The baked clams were delicious and the chicken francaise was equally as good. Taverna was a real find and we will go back.
First time here and will definitely be back because everything was amazing!
Get place to meet friends for drinks and food!
I almost don’t want to say how much I enjoy this restaurant for fear I’ll jinx it or it will be overwhelmed with new patrons.
Refined pleasant service combined with a diverse menu of deliciously prepared food make Taverna a special treat!
Food, service, price was great. The restaurant was very clean. Definetely going to go back.
Why offer reservations if it is still first come first serve?
Best Restaurant on Staten Island. Great food. Excellent service
I had this year tuna it was OK but the place was good
Amazing food and amazing service!!! 😍😍😍
Food always delicious... I always order the octopus tentacle for appetizer... Excellent... The lobster bisque in a bread bowl is also excellent....
Everything was yummy and reasonably priced
Drinks big and reasonably priced too. Will be back!
Wonderful food, ambiance, owners make you feel like your eating in their dining room at home. Great evening was had by all.
Food was good for the most part, little too much sauce. Wish we would have been given a cocktail or wine menu. When asking for drinks or dessert waiter would just asked what we wanted then told us what they had. Waiter was not as attentive as he should have been as the restaurant was empty. The whole experience was okay.
Worst restaurant experience I have encountered by far! The service is HORRIBLE! Got seated at 8:45PM and did not receive our food until 11:00PM which is their closing time. From the time we were seated no one attended to us and we did not even get a menu. Each time we needed something we had to flag down a waiter or ask them to attend to us. I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone!
We were a little early so we sat at the bar. The bartender was hysterical and very attentive. We sat at a table next to the window which was good for people watching. The decor was lovely and the lights were dim. We ordered the escargot for an appetizer, squid ink pasta and a succulent pig special for dinner. The food was outstanding. With drinks, the appetizer and dinner was still around $100 before tip which I think is a great bargain. Our waiter may have been the only waiter working that night and it was a packed house so it took a while to get our drinks but otherwise it was a great experience and I would go back.
Dinner with friends
Excellent as always.
Always a pleasure to dine here. Even though they had a set menu tonight, they did accommodate a request for an entree off the regular menu. Owners and staff always greet you and are very thankful that you patronize their restaurant. We dine here at least twice a month,sometimes more.👍😀
Christmas Eve was enchanting
Menu was focused on strong points and perfectly executed
Christmas dinner with friends
Food & service was excellent. Very accommodating with helping my mom with a special meal since she can not have a lot of spices.
Best escargot I have ever had! Lobster ravioli was amazing too
