I like the look & experience of this restaurant. The menu is nice & varied. They make most everything in house including curing their own meats apparently. Apple blue cheese salad with fennel and walnuts was fresh & tasty. Side of crispy brussel sprouts was greasy & the aioli was a bit sour. But the reason I marked it down a grade was the pasta was so overcooked it was mushy. This was true for both the orecchiette and the mac & cheese. Otherwise the flavors were good. Good service.
We sat upstairs so the noise level was acceptable, downstairs very noisy. White wine came a little warm, but second glass after the bottle sat in the cooler was better. Fun meal.
Brunch was overrated and not value for money. Food and service was below average whilst price was high.
I can't believe how bad the was. My date and I ordered pizzas and first they got my order all mixed up but what was worse was that our pizzas were totally tasteless. I felt like I was eating cardboard. Their pizza ranked up there with the worst pizzas I have ever had. Liberty Tavern used to have decent food. Not anymore. Liberty Tavern, what's happened to you?
This family operated restaurant was terrific.
Had an excellent meal prior to a show at National Theatre. My wife, “every bite was an explosion of flavor! I’ve never said that before.” Likely becoming our regular stop on way to NATS Park. Service well done.
Great food, very good service. We were in and out pretty quickly which is needed for a business lunch.
Awesome Sunday Brunch
We’ve been going to Liberty for years and frankly the quality of the food has fallen off. There are some great items but we have found them inconsistent. For example the lamb ribs were a real treat the first time. However, when we ordered the “crispy” lamb ribs this time, they were swimming in a pool of liquid at the bottom of the bowl. The pizza was supposed to have broccoli rabe but came with plain broccoli. The table next to us complained to the waiter as well, “just tell us” you substituted plain broccoli, they are not the same thing! Overall, we are disappointed that a great neighborhood restaurant seems to be lost. Perhaps too much energy is going in to the new Northside in Falls Church and the Le Nora Bakery move. The Liberty needs a refresh in the kitchen.
Great restaurant. Had dinner with two other couples who also loved it. Brought other friends a few weeks ago, and they loved the food too. Service always excellent.
Have been to brunch several times. Highly recommend. The food is always good, as well as the service.
Sunday morning - virtually all tables full. Excellent selection of well-prepared food for the 23 ppax brunch. Reasonable prices on drinks. the Grapefruit Buck was a great cocktail.
This was my first time to the restaurant and I enjoyed it very much. Our group enjoyed the atmosphere and everything else.
Friends got together for brunch on Presidents’ Day. It was delicious, the wait staff was considerate and we plan to return very soon.
Liberty Tavern was great for dinner with a couple old friends. The entree portions (we got the roast chicken and lamb shank) were generous but not overwhelming, and the carmelized onion, cremini mushroom, and brussel sprouts pizza was creative and delicious. Aside from the great food, the restaurant upstairs was a little bit loud due to the noise from the bar downstairs, but not awful. And the service was fantastic - attentive but not distracting or overbearing!
We were greeted & seated right away, our server was friendly & there if we needed him but never intrusive, and the brunch buffet was a wonderful mix of breakfast & lunch comfort foods. Loved the French toast, sage breakfast sausages, the mulled cider, and fried chicken the best—but I enjoyed everything I tried. I would definitely go back!
Buffet's aren't my go-to, but this brunch buffet was worth it. Fresh food, tasty drinks, and attentive staff. Inexpensive as well. Note: not bottomless mimosa!
I’ve been to the Liberty Tavern for brunch and had a very tasty and enjoyable experience. The price was reasonable the food was delicious and a lot of variety and the service was great! I decided to try the tavern for a lunch date with my husband on Valentine’s Day. We both ordered salads. His steak salad and mine chicken chopped salad. We were totally UNDERwhelmed. The chicken in mine was flavorless and the entire presentation lacked . The salad just not that amazing. My husbands’s steak salad was also not that good. He did say the steak itself was tasty but the rest just so so. Like the first brunch visit, our server at lunch was perfect. She was pleasant, efficient and very helpful. So my recommendation is if you’re not at Brunch.......don’t order the salads!
I just tried the chopped chicken salad, which I had not had before. It was exceptionally good, complex and flavorful. A step above the usual chopped salad!
The meal was tasty and the kids menu very impressive. Service was quite good. Main downside was that the lighting was so dark that we had to use phones to read the menu.
Top notch brunch buffet with house made sausage, bacon and smoked salmon. All your favorites from fried chicken, French toast, grits, pastries, salads and soups. All homemade and legitimately better than most of your other local eateries.
Don’t sleep on liberty tavern if you’re looking for a brunch spot that seems to always stay consistent. Make every effort to get your reservations.. as I’m not the only one who feels this way. Lots of locals every weekend flock to this place. And lastly, get in early for easier access to the buffet with an abundance of fresher ingredients.
Came for the Sunday brunch and was pleasantly surprised at the unique options available on the buffet. Everything was very fresh and empty food items were quickly replenished.
been here many times but the food was exceptional on Friday!
Chicken was very good and the wait staff very attentive
The brunch buffet was wonderful - a wide variety of choices including vegetarian ones. It was constantly being replenished. The service was very attentive but not interfering. We never felt rushed to finish up and leave. Don't eat much breakfast because you will be sorry if you do!
went for brunch with friends. pretty good spread considering it was a buffet. Mimosa were good, coffee decent, service was pretty good, would come back again
As always, a great brunch option. The all-you-can-eat brunch is very tasty.
Our second time here, a disappointment (last time was lunch, better). Although we were seated according to our reservation (a must Saturday night), and the waiter was polite, the ongoing service and food were mediocre at best. The tavern salad was over-dressed and too vinegary to eat, and essentially just plain greens, nothing like description; when I said something to the employee who was eager to remove my half eaten dish, she clearly did not understand my complaint. Entrees took forever to come out. Garnishes/sides were indecipherable (sweet potatoes liquid, kale undercooked). The desserts were strange--just sugary and not great. We weren't ever asked how our food was, and it was nothing special. At $35 pp Restaurant week prices (before drinks), still not worth it. Won't be returning or recommending. Very overrated.
A group of friends and I went for restaurant week - Liberty Tavern was listed as a restaurant participating for brunch. However, when we got to the restaurant the 'deal' was their normal all-you-can-eat brunch for $22.95. We were disappointed by this 'deal'. The food for a buffet was average.
Good food, good service but noise level - even upstairs where it is generally moderate - was overwhelming.
I always have a great meal and time when we are at Liberty Tavern.
Been the go to place in Arlington for years. Great staff great food !!
Good place to meet with friends and enjoy lunch. A bit noisy, however.
Such a wonderful restaurant. Our favorite local place. Delicious food. Wonderful service. Creative menu
Excellent dinner. Lovely wine list. Very intuitive and friendly service. Server overheard a conversation about a birthday and then surprised us with dessert. Over the top. Every single person was friendly and helpful. Food was wonderful. We love it here.
This was my pre birthday brunch and it was a great pick. The food was good, hearty and healthy options available.
My husband and I have been coming here for 8 years now. The food and overall quality has gone downhill. We were there for our Anniversary (as we mentioned on the open table reservation), and there was no mention of it.
If I were 20 something and looking for a cheap happy hour I'd go there again. Not for a special occasion.
Our waitress was great! Coffee was good, didn’t run low, etc.
However the brunch buffet was seriously lacking. The majority of the food was cold the entire time we were there—mind you brunch started at 10am and we were there at 10:30, French toast was hard as were the meats on the cutting board station and the eggs were halfway to hard as well. The quiche looked great, until I bit into it and realized it was really under cooked, so that was disappointing (and then gross since I had to spit it out). The fruit and yogurt parfaits were at least good!
I know $22.95 for brunch buffet is more affordable than some of the other brunches in the area but I don’t think that should mean the food quality is lesser. I brought my father in law along to brunch since he’s visiting and I felt like I had to apologize after brunch because it just didn’t live up to quality brunch standards compared to the other places we’ve eaten when he’s come to visit.
This is a favorite brunch place for my family and friends.
