Great on a beautiful nightI enjoyed sitting in the courtyard at Tarks on a warm night, although the tables are tightly packed in. We had excellent fried oyster appetizers and then the Salmon BLT and green spring valley salad with salmon. All the food was fresh and well prepared. Service was excellent, we'll be back again.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent evening outThe food is fresh and the wait staff is pleasant. Who could ask for more? I had a wedge salad with steak and my husband had a chicken breast sandwich. We were very pleased. Our server was Brittany this time.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and service as usual.Good food and service as usual. Would be helpful if the menu and/or wait staff was a little more knowledgeable with gluten allergies.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMService has been mediocreService has been mediocre last two times I have eaten here. It is as if there are two few servers. Everything takes forever.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a wonderful experience!Tarks has become our "date night" go to spot. The food is always amazing as is the service. We arrived 20 minutes early for our reservation, but were seated promptly despite the place being totally packed. We are able to dine outside as requested in our reservation. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. We had a tiny mishap where the bartender made me the wrong drink, but it was fixed within 3 minutes. We both had the Sea Bass and it was delicious. Highly recommend this place!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLindsey SaladGreat stop after the Oregon Ridge Wine Fest. Lindsey salad with blackened shrimp is excellent.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Lunch a success!My friends and I enjoyed our lunch at Tark's Grill. Meals were delicious and we actually spent 2 and 1/2 hours eating and chatting. It was nice not to feel rushed and be able to enjoy our conversations.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMour favoriteServers are the best. Great menu selection. Great value.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a Good MealTark's is a neighborhood cafe in a high end neighborhood. The food is comfort food for the most part but is outstanding in flavor and preparation . The ambience inside is bland and dark, but not off-putting. The noise level is extreme inside during busy times. I love the place for a late lunch, especially when I can eat outside in the pretty courtyard.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints!Tark's has made a good impression on the spot where Harvey's used to be the place to go in the area. Tark's has delicious food with a nice atmosphere. The bar scene is very vibrant and very noisy! All in all a good choice for a fine dinner.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMInside or outside, a greatInside or outside, a great choice for lunch or dinner. Delicious fare served by professional and attentive staff.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBecause the bar (and extendedBecause the bar (and extended bar) is in the middle of the restaurant, the noise is unbearable but also unavoidable. Good menu, good food and good service. Very pricey, though.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, as usual was excellent.The food, as usual was excellent. A little slow in delivering dressing that was missing, and the kitchen put the dressing on a salad when it was asked to be on the side. Since it was relatively light, the salad was not sent back.
The back room is lovely for gatherings, but the last few times, it has been freezing in that room. We have requested the air conditioning be adjusted, but to no avail.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother very good mealWe has another very good meal at Tark's Grill. The service was also very good with attentive wait staff. Would recommend the chopped salad with whatever topping you choose.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTark's is great for businessTark's is great for business or personal meals.

The server, Douglas was great. We sat outside near the heaters!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI like the service and theI like the service and the outdoor patio is great...but not very vegetarian or vegan friendly. I have to get the same salads whenever I go there.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend and I visited Tark'sMy friend and I visited Tark's Grill, our first time, on a Saturday afternoon. We were greeted by Cathy, a very friendly hostess, who promptly escorted us to a booth that we had requested. Don't remember our waiter's name, but he was very accommodating. We order the crab cake & shrimp salad & explained to him that we were sharing the food. When the food was delivered to our table, the waiter had already placed half the crab cake & half of the sandwich on separate plates, which is very unusual. We had french fries & cole slaw as well. The food was excellent! We each ordered deserts, a creme brulee & their famous coconut pound cake. Both were excellent! Can't wait to go back! Atmosphere - a little noisy!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and wonderful service.Great food and wonderful service. We were celebrating a special event and they put us in their back room, which was terrific! We could celebrate and visit with less noise than in the outer rooms. They took outstanding care of our party.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall great food. My wifeOverall great food. My wife and I went for our first anniversary. We both got steaks and crab cakes. A little under-seasoned, but the quality of the beef was very good. The crab cakes were all jumbo lump, but could have used a little more seasoning as well. The waiter recommended the milk cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert - a good one! We also started with some mussels - very good and tender, not overcooked at all. The waiter could have been a little more attentive - my wife sat for a little while with an empty water glass. But overall great experience and would go back. Looks like they have some less expensive sandwiches and burgers and would love to go back and sit out on the patio in the summer when it warms up a bit!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSeated right away. Food wasSeated right away. Food was great, but the waiter was no where to be found after taking the order. Had my salad plate and menu with me the whole meal.
