I have never had a bad meal here. I usually get their salads since they have a good variety. I had a pork loin lunch special. It was great - the only bad thing was there wasn't enough of it, but that was to be expected by the price.

City Tavern is always a sure bet if you are looking for good service and value combined with excellent food. They have great specials (prime rib night on Thurs) and the atmosphere is cosy.

My husband and I dine at this restaurant quite often. Each time we go here, the service and the food are always top notch. Our favorite appetizer is the Tempura Fried Asparagus. I think I have had almost every Entree on their dinner

SUCKS!

The service SUCKS! and the food SUCKS! Not if you gave me their food for free would I ever eat in any of their places. Trust me, I believe in giving all restaurants three chances, not this place. I wouldn't take a doggy bag home

My husband and I decided to try this place out before attending a movie next door. I was immediately thrown off by the awful silk flowers in cheap planters near the entrance, but went ahead and were seated. After I got a quick look at the vase of wilted flowers sitting in disgusting pond water on our table, the terrible plastic tablecloths and a menu that was so incredibly varied that there was NO way anything could be done properly on it, I had a moment of panic and almost wanted to bolt straight for the front door and leave.

Our server was strange. I wouldn't say rude, but definitely not a people person, and he was dripping with sarcasm when we asked for ranch dressing and he said they'd run out and only had enough for salads.

I ordered a chicken philly, thinking it had the least chance of being completely inedible. As I sat there waiting for my food, the only thought I had was that I hoped I wasn't going to get sick from eating here. That is NOT what you should be thinking about when waiting for your lunch. When it arrived, what I was basically handed was some soggy bread and melted cheese with a few flavorless chunks of chicken and a huge pile of the absolute worst french fries I have ever eaten. They were completely hollow, chewy, stale and BLAND.

My husband ordered a plain burger. He said the burger was fine, but he also did not touch his french fries.

For the price, this was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. I will NEVER go back to this restaurant, nor any of it's other locations.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO ANYONE!!! After the steroid infested bartender, Billy, misunderstood my husband??s complement for an insult, he continued to threaten and challenge him to MUCH discomfort to us and other patron??s around us. Even after we apologized for the misunderstanding, Billy would NOT let up! Give up the steroids BILLY!!!

I am a VERY SUCCESSFUL business owner, and if I was the owner or manger of this restaurant, the bartender would be ON THE STREET looking for a job TONIGHT!!! We happened to be sitting next to the manager of a nearby restaurant, Firebirds, which is an excellent place to eat and has incredible customer service, and even he agreed that the bartender was WAY OUT OF LINE! I have NEVER in my 40+ years of life been treated so poorly?honestly; I still CANNOT even believe what transpired tonight!!! I have NEVER experienced such a situation OR written a bad review about a restaurant EVER, but this situation could NOT be ignored!

If you knew me, you would not believe I was even taking the time to write this, but others need know before their wonderful night out with their significant other is ruined by a "muscle head," steroid and testosterone ridden bartender! BILLY?YOU??RE FIRED!!!

Great service, good food, nice atmosphere and we ALWAYS get coupons in the mail for this place which makes dining there a good deal too. Oh their drinks are tasty too and they have good daily drink specials and they the size isn't too dinky.

I love this place. I feel like I don't have to be super dressed up to come. I almost always get their salmon - WONDERFUL! I am also a big fan of their crab cakes and I am usually pretty picky about those. The staff is always very attentive and quick. I feel like the prices are fair and they always seem to have coupons that I get in the mail periodically. I absolutely recommend them. Just writing this review makes me want to go there now!

OK...we have been here several times because they have good drink specials. The bartender was actually a rude at first and then warmed up...so maybe he was just having a bad day?

The food though...let's just say - don't bother. Go for drinks and find another place for food. We've tried their food 3 times hoping the first couple times were just bad flukes. But alas, the food stinks. All their gravies/sauces/dressings all taste artificial. Like cheap bottled stuff.

The chicken wasn't premium because it wasn't tender. Same for the burgers....over-cooked, flavorless and dry. I wish I could say something positive about the food...oh wait - the first time, when they weren't out of bread...the bread was actually tasty.

As far as service, our last guy was pretty attentive. But the two times before that they were forgetting the order and hardly ever came back to the table to check on us. If you can't remember the order, then just write it down...it's not difficult.

I will still go back for drinks again though because they carry premium liquor.

We went to the Stonecrest (Rea Rd.) location with our baby in tow. Upon arrival about 6:15 on a Tuesday we found that the restaurant was on a wait even though 40% or better of the tables were open. Nonetheless, we decided to wait even though there really is not space to stand and wait. After waiting about fifteen minutes another couple came in and was seated immediately. When this happened a second time I asked the person doing the seating what the deal was; she went ahead and sat the other couple and still told us we had to wait. I insisted on speaking to the manager. The guy on duty was quite unresponsive and I very quickly realized that he was the problem and not the solution. I gave up and left the restaurant.

When we got home I wrote the "yousuck@city-tavern" email address and presented what had happened. I was contacted by the owner of the operation and he basically offered me way too much to make me feel better. In part he did this because this was a return visit to give the restaurant a chance because of a rather similar incident. Anyway, the owner did offer me a gift card to his restaurant and said he would send it out immediately and that the General Manager of the store would also contact me. Needless to say that neither of these things happened.

It is obvious that the management and ownership of this restaurant is not interested in quality guest service or living up to what they say they will do.

DO NOT LET THIS OPERATION GET A PENNY OF YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY. THERE IS WAY TOO MUCH COMPETITION DOING IT THE BETTER WAY!!!

My first experience at a City Tavern (Rivergate location, not Rea Rd.) was half-way pleasant - it was the service that disappointed me a LOT. My friend and I were seated promptly, the food was served very quickly for the most part, and it was very good (we had the Sunday all-u-can-eat crab special), but our server was a big disappointment. She didn't give me any details about the crab special, such as what side items were served with it - I had to ask. (I wish I'd been given an option of subbing some other side dish other than mashed potatoes and a squash/zuchinni mix since I don't really eat either of those, so it was a waste of food and space on my plate.) She 'forgot' and put our appetizer order in after our dinner order, so the appetizer arrived about 10 mins after the entrees did. She forgot what we were drinking (just sweet tea), she forgot the extra napkins we asked for (had to ask for those again), she delayed in putting in the 2nd order of crab for our table (I told her to wait 5 mins, but I ended up waiting at least 15 mins for it to arrive, while the 3rd order of crab arrived VERY promptly - something tells me she forgot to put that 2nd order in until we reminded her of it), and she forgot to ask if we wanted dessert. Isn't it funny how I've forgotten her name? A shame, since if I ever DO go back there to eat again, I'd want to specify that I DON'T want to sit in her section.

I read many reviews for City Tavern before deciding to go there, and I'm sad to say that they were right on the head about the poor service for such a high-priced restaurant. Another thing they were correct in was the poor layout of the restaurant, in that it was hard for my friend and I to hear each other when talking since all of the noise around us drowned us out. My standards for quality of service aren't excessively high, but I do like to get my money's worth - spending that much on a dinner for two should have been much better than what we experienced.

I am a regular customer. This newer City Tavern in Ballantyne gives diners a very pleasant experience. The lunch and dinner menus provide a variety of options at very affordable prices, which are presented very well. I have not been disappointed at all by my selections. There is a banquet room and the events staff is excellent. The service is very good also. They also have Sunday brunch from a menu selection.

If you want a juicy filet and a beer, this is the place to go. The atmosphere is more formal as well as the menu. They have a wide variety of wines and Chardonnay. Into steak and beer without the dress or tie? Try Hickory Tavern sports bar and grill. The same great taste with a more welcoming feel.

My husband and I decided to try City Tavern on Rivergate Parkway -NOT the Rea Rd. location- for the first time for lunch yesterday. Everything before we got our food was fine, (getting seated quickly, and drinks) but beware of an older server named John. He was very creepy; he stood too closely to our table, made us feel slightly uncomfortable and was quite unprofessional (reached across our table to grab something instead of asking first.) He was almost too casual in his mannerisms for an "upscale" establishment like City Tavern.

First of all, their lunch menu is terrible and overpriced. It is mostly dishes I have never would imagine serving for lunch, or touch with a ten-foot pole. I found ONE item I would even remotely eat and that was the Vegetable Panini, but I decided to add chicken. My husband ordered the lobster ravioli. About fifteen minutes went by and I was informed that they "Were out of panini bread." From what I know from cooking shows on Food Network, panini bread is NOT a style of bread, it is just a diferent way of cooking/grilling a sandwich! I was pretty mad about that but I got it anyway with regular wheat bread since I didn't want to argue with our server. When we got our food, what I got was a soggy sandwich, and my husband got six ravioli in a thin, soupy sauce. My sandwich fell apart instantly and was bland, and my husband was underwhelmed with his lunch, too. The fries were the best part. We left wasting $24, and vowing to never come here for lunch again. But perhaps, dinner might be slightly better. We also left wishing we had tried Just Fresh next door...which was cheaper AND the food looked more appetizing. Save your money!!!

My husband and I ate at the Stonecrest location one evening and had the worst service! We sat for about 15 minutes before my husband had to ask someone to get us a drink. The table behind us was getting served and when we asked that server where our server was she said she couldn't find them but would take our order. Like it was a bother to her. How dare us want to eat! Our food was not tasty and came to us cold. The restaurant wasn't even busy, there were maybe 3 tables taken if that. I would not recommend this restaurant to any friends.

We had a rehearsal dinner at the Stonecrest location and were very pleased with our service and our dinner. The wait staff and mgr, Cooper, were very friendly and accomodating and more than willing to make sure our evening was a success. IT WAS!!!! Thank you very much, and if we are in town again, we will definitely visit the location again. Chrisitna Vandiford, Greenville, NC

I visited this location after a recommendation from friends.
I sat at the bar, busy on a Wednesday night, and had a glass of wine.
I was impressed by the long list of wines available by the glass.
The grouper dish was fantastic. Both bartenders worked together to take care of everyone seated at the bar. I would also recommend the Rivergate location in the Steele Creek area.

We decided to try City Tavern before going to see Ocean's 13 since it is right next door to the theater. It was a nice evening so we decided to seat out on their patio. That was a mistake. It took about 10 minutes to order and after our food came we never saw our waitress again. I hate eating with nothing to drink! I have to say the food was great, but difficult to enjoy.

I have never had such a horrible experience. I dined at the stoncrest location. The food was horrible, the service was non existent and the manager, Ryan, was the rudest person I have ever encountered. He argued with me about the quality of the food, refused to offer a different meal or comp my meal, and was flat out disrespectful and nasty. I have never experienced anything like this in my life!!! Do not waste your money or time!!!

While I'm still disappointed they removed one of the lobster ravioli dishes, thus allowing a pregnant woman's craving to go unsatisfied - they do have really good food and a very ecclectic menu. I've gone in many times and only had one instance of iffy service which was remedied immediately. I think it was more of a case of it being a busy night and my husband and I having been spoiled by the terrific service in the past.

Oh and if you're looking for chicken fingers and fries, this isn't the place for you. It has a bit more of a sophisticated menu.

Service is horrible. Waited more than 30 minutes for a dessert menu and had to flag down a server to get it. No coffee refills without again flagging down a server. Had to have the manager sent over after waiting over an hour to get the check - his response - got the check - no apologies - nothing! Do not recommend this establishment to anyone you actually like!
