I took my friend here for her birthday. We each ordered a drink, shared an appetizer, and both got salads with salmon on top. The tuna appetizer was the worst I’ve ever had. I couldn’t even cut the tuna with my knife. I asked for dressing on the side, but it was on my salad. No one came to see if our food came out correctly. We waited and waited for our water to be refilled. Our check with tip was over $125. Extremely overpriced for mediocre food and service.
Great place. The food was delicious and our server was superb.
Great service. Solid meal! Good choice for group birthday celebration.
Food was good. Booth seating was comfortable Waiter was very attentive.
Portion size for vegetarian selection was minuscule.
Legacy salad- go to entree was too spicy even with request to go very light on jalapeño. Everything was just a little this side of fresh. I usually take home what I cannot finish. I left it today.
My guest’s Cobb salad was similar. Tomatoes were tasteless. Served with a dressing not Russian. He did not finish. Service was attentive. We sat in bar booth area. Seats need to be reupholstered but it is quiet there. I will still return. This is my neighborhood restaurant. I’ll chalk it up to an off day in the kitchen.
It was a rainy day and yet the outdoor space was inviting. The waiter was outstanding (Christopher). While they were not particularly busy outside in that weather, he managed to be exceptionally attentive without being intrusive. Nice after work dinner with a friend.
Had a wonderful meal. The street corn fritters were mildly spicy with a rich sauce. My wife's bronzini and my seafood risotto were both excellent. (Risotto was delivered hot, as it should be, but many restaurants don't deliver it fast enough.) Dessert was a blondie a la mode, which was exactly as it should have been, though I didn't really want something quite that sweet. I rated the noise level low, but that may be because we ate on the patio. I can't testify to the noise level inside the restaurant.
Food very good, noise level still extremely high making conversations difficult.
We’re always pleased with the attentive staff and food
Lunch menu was fresh and had great possibilities, was very disappointed that the turkey burger came out over cooked and dry.
The fried green tomato and chipotle mayo were on point but couldn’t save it.
Salads were fresh, and service was great!
Good Food & Service.
Not too pricey
Lots of wasps at the outside eating area. Otherwise food and service were great.
Great experience the waitress was amazing
Always a consistent deight and a wonderful venue for dining outside.
Have dined there often for many years. First time with the waiter George, who was terrific.
Always a favorite! Very good food - casual atmosphere. One of my "go to" restaurants.
I tried the Autumn Vegan. It had an Indian flair and was very tasty.
Seems to have become my go to place. Always great food and service!
Food is very good although a little pricey. They have done a great job with the outdoor/courtyard seating area. Wish they would offer the bar menu outside.
Always delicious food, great drinks and wines. Exceptional servers! Very dependable.
Loved the prime rib special on Monday night- (all took some home!) Also appreciated the desssert as a free birthday offering- on top of that an unknown customer at next table offered a split of champagne to birthday girl and didn’t even know her!
We went for our anniversary,as we have for quite a few years now. Sat outside, and had lovely weather. Our Waiter, George was very helpful. We went with his recommendation on the Cheese steak Spring rolls and the seafood Risotto. Both were great. New ownership has brought some much needed changes to Tarks.
Food was fair at best. One main course was a small plate. One main course was too salty.
We were not happy that you can’t order burgers or other sandwiches when eating outside of the bar. I think that’s a big mistake. You need some sandwiches also for people who don’t want an entree like me.
Food was just fair on my last visit. Lamb chops were ordered medium/well and came to me rare. Wanted to order a burger (which used to be on the menu) and was told that they only serve the burgers in the bar. Made no sense to me that the kitchen was cooking burgers, but not able to serve them outside. The blondie served for dessert was stale.
Best to sit in back lounge area for quiet. A small party of quite loud women diners were there too. Usually order legacy salad. Decided to order Caesar with grilled salmon. Big mistake. Dressing was watery and tasteless. Salad was mediocre with acceptable salmon. Service was cordial and prompt.
Food was excellent, as always. Service was amazing and very attentive.
Restaurant was dirty, booth was torn and food was very diner basic. Very disappointing since we frequent City Cafe and have never been let down there.
Overall, this was a mediocre experience. I have gone to Tarks for years and always enjoyed it. This time, the seat to the booth bench was torn, and in general it seemed a bit worse for wear. The food that was served was both not warm and overcooked.
Raw oysters were great, we all enjoyed them. Service was excellent. Dinners were good, my scallop dinner was good but too much risotto. Everyone appeared to enjoy their dinner. My one complaint, my drink tasted mostly like just juice.
Normally, it’s very good. This time, slow service. Food over cooked, filet steak was the size of a 50 cent piece and well done. Salmon dry as a bone. If it weren’t so late in the evening we would have sent it all back to the kitchen. Prices are very steep, which I can deal with if the food is good.
We went late on a Sunday so much quieter than usual. We started with Shrimp Cocktail, Gazpacho & Garden Salad. Then had Bronzini and NY Strip. All were delicious. And our wonderful waiter, Alejandro, took good care of us.
Terrific server but the kitchen was not quite up to par (cold veggies; one meal came 5 minutes after the others). Entrees were great - soft shells & crabcakes!
Decided to take out my girlfriend and her friend on a Wednesday night and chose a place i thought would impress them both. Great ambiance outside. Server Alex was attentive and efficient. Manager James was awesome and stopped by our table to check on us. We ordered a little of everything off the app menu and then some entrees. My girlfriend loved her scallops and her friend who has never been before was in food heaven. We finished with a share of the peach cobbler and bread pudding. Tarks did not let me down on choosing the right spot for a casual night out and we hope to return soon. Kudos to this awesome spot!
Needed convenient location for people coming from different parts of the area and this was perfect. Food was good. Decent number of choices.
The food was excellent. The service was impeccable. We had a great evening!
Overall a good dining experience once the waiter finally came over after having our party of four sit and wait for over 15 minutes without a greeting or water. Once we received our food it was cooked to perfection
My wife and I have been to Tarks before. This time we brought friends who have not heard of it. They raved about their meal. Of course, we will be back for a great meal and service. Maybe, our friends will bring theirs.
