We dined outside which is on the street and was a bit noisy due to the traffic. It took at least 15 minutes before a server came to the table. It was not busy at the restaurant and there was plenty of help so not sure why the delay. Server asked about drinks and if we wanted an appetizer, which we ordered. Spinach ricotta crepes were ok, nothing special. Some seasoning would have helped. Server finally returned and asked if we wanted to order our dinner. I had a the grilled fig salad with salmon. The figs were dried and not grilled, and it was to be topped with their signature crushed walnut topping, but it was a minute amount. The salmon was the only good part of the meal. It was tasty and cooked perfectly. My partner ordered linguine bolognese and 2 meatballs. His only comment was it was ok and he did not want the remaining portion boxed. I watched other servers bring all of the customers some little drink at the end of their meal, yet we did not receive one. Overall, a disappointing experience and we will not be returning.

Great place for authentic Italian or brick oven pizza. Friendly staff. Great bartenders! We really enjoyed the food and I see why there’s always a wait. Thanks for being so great.

70th birthday for a friend. Outdoor seating can be noisy at times with traffic and motorcycles.
Food and service were very good. My favorite spot to hit for a good night out.

Our last visit to the Berry Tavern was great. The drinks were creative and the food came out on time and hot. Josh our server was very attentive and came over multiple times during our meal. We recommend the eggplant rollatini, calamari and Grand Marnier shrimp as appetizers. The haddock piccata is fresh and a good-sized portion. You also cannot go wrong with their pizza, burgers and other pasta dishes as well. We enjoy this place on a regular basis.

Fathers Day dinner. They seated us in what resembled a function room, which was perfectly fine, but it was very hot in there. The thermostat on the wall read 81 degrees. They told us the air conditioner was on it was not enough. I’m not one to complain but it was very hot and that made the dinner not so enjoyable.

Have visited 3 times always enjoy it. I love the steak tips but 2 of us ordered them and they were tough and they were ordered medium so it wasn’t due to overcooked. The waitresses are fabulous, so attentive.
