We loved the food! My picky 14 year old was able to find food that she liked. The only negative was the noise. It was very loud and made it difficult to talk even at our own table.

The customer service is impeccable. Our server (Allen) remembered my husband and I from our visit a whole year ago, he even remembered what I ordered!! The food is outstanding, creative, and delicious, we were able to make half orders of pretty much anything on the menu except dessert. I travel to Phoenix at least once/year and I will always come back to this place!

This was the best meal we ate in Arizona. Incredibly fresh food, light but still tasty, warm service and best of all most dishes can be ordered as half portions so can be greedy without feeling too guilty! Surprise win was the chicken which I rarely order as I find it boring. However, ours was perfectly cooked with a light but intense jus and came with well seasoned fluffy buttermilk mash potatoes. Apple crisp was also excellent - I finished the whole thing despite the big meal that came before it!

Loved chatting to the bar staff. A shame That there was a rather drunken loud group sitting at the bar too, but we were distracted by the good food, thank goodness.

The food was outstanding...I had the Scallops, amazing and my friend had the Lobster Gnocchi ,
which she said was very good....We shared the Bread pudding, I am not a fan, however that
is my friends favorite desert, so she loved it. Its a bit pricey, but worth it .

I received a gift card to use here, so my wife and I used it for our 21 year wedding Anniversary. We made an early reservation (5:30PM), so it wasn’t really busy yet. Our server was personable and “on it” since it was quite slow. My wife ordered the Center-Cut Tenderloin Filet with Lump Jonah Crab (which she said was great). I told them I was vegan and my server just said, “I’m not sure what we have but I’ll have them put something together for you.” I was anticipating with excitement. He came out with plate of veggies atop a few slices of potatoes (weird), and the flavor was a “B+”, nothing to brag about. Overall experience was “good”, not GREAT, and it was pricey. Would I go back? Maybe?

Went to Tarbell's after a long day of travel. It was very good and is very consistent. Is it fine dining? No, but you can count on a good meal and good service. Sometimes that is all you really want and need.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the hostess and seated immediately. Bus staff brought water and some chips and hummus. Seems like it was going to be good service. Well... after 15 minutes with no waiter/waitress and no drink order or waitstaff in sight I went to the bartender and asked if we could eat at the bar. He said yes. This is when our frown was turned upside down! Mikey the bar tender saved the day. Mikey apologized brought us a complementary appetizer while making our cocktails. Took the edge off! Then took our order and gave the attention a place with these price points should give. Food was excellent! Mikey was excellent. Parking is horrible. Seems understaffed but apparently the place has been around a long time. At least the food is good. Mikey is great. Sit at the bar if you want good service.

2nd time to Tarbell's and we were disappointed. Server was bland and seemed to busy for us.
I ordered the Filet with Crab and while it was OK it wasn't cooked the way I ordered it and it came out luke warm. Beet salad was very good. My wife ordered the New York and it was again 'ok'. The spinach wasn't good. Wet blob of green spinach. I had creme brulee for desert and the top was thick and hard to eat, the filling was also 'thick'. It was our anniversary which I mentioned in the reservation but it wasn't mentioned by the receptionist, server, and no complimentary desert was ever offered. If we go back we will just sit at the bar and order a meatball!

As always Tarbell’s never disappoints! We shared the carpaccio and calamari appetizers. Best. Carpaccio. I’ve. Ever. Had!!! I had the lobster gnocchi: pure tastebud bliss. My husband ordered the Italian sausages and burrata flatbread pizza which was lightly dusted with Serrano chili which we all agreed was great. Our friend ordered a half portion of the halibut Mr Fish of the Moment OMG so delicious and a half portion of the always wonderful house made Italian sausage pasta with the delectably light creamy sauce. We also shared the famous baseball size meatball and it was almost as good as my Italian family’s own meatballs which is saying a lot! For our finish we shared the apple streudel with salted caramel and vanilla gelato... not a morsel left! The Sancerre perfectly complimented everything. And what made our night an even better experience was the exceptional service Jacqueline showered us with from answering our many(bordering possibly annoying) questions) to happily sharing a sampling of several tastes to ensure a delightfully wonderful meal for each of us.

Over many years I've spent several birthdays and brought out-of-towners to Tarbell's. They never disappoint. It's a wonderful place for fine dining for just about any occasion. Quite a unique selection on the menu for the seasonal and daily items. Not a drinker but I'm told the wine selection is excellent. The waitrons and staff are always friendly and smiling. Prices are right in line with the very high quality cuisine, atmosphere and service.

I will be back!
