So yeah, we're writing another 5 star review...we just returned from Cafe 214 and the food is consistently stellar. Filet, salad, cocktails, burgers, mac and cheese, dessert, or trout- it doesn't matter. Peter and Vivian and their crew are top notch. Great service, fantastic food, and a really nice cozy atmosphere for both families with kids and couples. Don't miss... More

This is expensive, even by some NYC standards. It's THE nice place in town, I understand (I haven't been everywhere in Phoenicia but yelp speaks loudly to this point). The food is very good -- not amazing -- and the drinks are great. The mood is chi-chi. I've been a couple of times. Frankly I prefer hanging with the locals... More

Ran into a friend in town after skiing at hunter. He was friends with the owner and introduced us. We ended up giving this place a try and we're so glad we did. The place is great, from the service, ambiance, then there is the food. The food was some of the best I've ever had. I had a steak,... More

Excellent bar, stellar drinks, no mixes, all made fresh, knowledgeable and friendly bartenders. Definitely come in just for a snack and drinks. Appetizers are amazing. Amazing and creative chef. The food is rich, but worth the calories. Locally sourced ingredients for most fare. Five star service with a real sense of community. If you are a serious foodie, this is... More

Had not been here since they opened a couple of years ago. Was good then and was even better now. My wife and I had their Tavern Burgers which were at first glance a little expensive ($19) but after arrival they were not mere burgers. Perfect medium rare with cheese, grilled sherry onions, Fingerling local potatoes, and a mesclun salad... More

So, I was here back in April of 2016 and have been meaning to write a review forever. This dinner, seriously, still thinking about it. We live about 2 and a half hours away and I would honestly think about making the drive just to come back here and eat again. My husband ordered the duck quesadillas for an appetizer... More

The menu was inventive, the staff friendly but best of all, the food was outstanding. The flavors meshed. Up to par with fine urban dining, plus love the local sourcing. Highly recommend the lobster fritters--not greasy.

We ate here last weekend and it was incredible! The staff was so friendly and the food was excellent. It may seem expensive at first but the portions are huge. A great atmosphere all around. I definitely recommend this as a must go for dinner!

Three friends and I visited Tavern 214 on Friday. We were recommended by a friend and were not disappointed, it has a wonderful atmosphere and great food. I had the Philly cheese steak which did not disappoint and one of my friends had the scallops which were great. The deserts and drinks were also great!

Just happened upon Tavern 214, stopped in for an early dinner. They are a farm to table, locally sourced gastropub. I went with the burger & truffle fried. VERY happy with my selection. The owners & staff were very welcoming. They made you feel like old friends. Love this place
