Whether you sit stove-side at the Chef’s Counter, cosy up to our bar, or dine at one of our distinctive tables, you’re in for an unforgettable experience.

Our Food

Tavern’s menu is carefully selected. We use only the highest-quality ingredients, source produce from local farms wherever possible and choose premium cuts of meat and fresh fish from carefully selected suppliers. Tavern is committed to providing its gluten-free customer with the same excellent quality we offer all of our patrons. Have a special dietary restriction? Let us know – we’ll do our best to accommodate any need!

Open Kitchen

Tavern’s open concept dining room brings the energy and excitement of an award-winning kitchen front and center. Engage your senses with the sights, sounds, and aromas of artistic food preparation from a spot in our elegant dining room or a perch at our interactive Chef’s Counter. Either way, you’ll enjoy pretense-free dining at its finest.

St. Louis isn’t just our location, it’s our heart and our home. We enjoy helping local organizations do good. Because when they do good, we all do better.

Manager/Wine & Beverage Director

Since her first hostess gig, more than 15 years ago, Megan’s been focused on providing guests with an exceptional dining experience. As Wine & Beverage Director, she puts that focus into action, preparing the wait staff and bartenders for whatever the night may bring. Private dining events at Tavern are especially important to Megan. While she’s proud of Tavern’s exceptional service and food, she believes it’s the staff that makes every experience unique. “They’re humble and fun to work with,” Megan says. “It’s a combination that makes for a truly unforgettable experience—in fact our reputation is built on it.” Her advice for others in the industry? Don’t get complacent— always look for ways to take an experience to the next level.
