Hope this was just an off day but we were very disappointed. Have been to Tarrant’s many times but this was a first time for early lunch. First, the service/kitchen was extremely slow. It took over 45 minutes to get our meals, which were mostly sandwiches. Our waitress never checked back during this time. Finally we flagged down the “manager” and then our food appeared.
Then the food itself was not hot, and the BLT’s were inedible due to the really fat bacon. Had to pull that off. So had a LT. Overall I rate this visit as poor.

The crab cake was the worst I ever had. Tasted like a cheap frozen one from a grocery store. No crab.
Ordered the steak cooked rare, served medium to medium well.
Wifes food was good, fish with crab.
My fourth and last visit.

We went for a post theater dinner with family and out of town friends. Very much appreciated their willingness to customize items for several members of our party. Food was excellent. The garlic bread was amazing.

Excellent from the minute we arrived. Although we had made a reservation, our table wasn't ready so we had a dink at the bar. Great bartender: personable, great customer service with lots of knowledge. Our waitress was great: attentive and professional and food was great (be sure to order the She-Crab soup, not to be missed!). We will be back to Tarrant's the next time we are in Richmond!

As always, the food was great. Best customer service I have found anywhere. We had to wait 15 minutes for reservation seating and they comped all our drinks. This was dinner for a birthday and they surprised us with a wonderful birthday dessert. It's no wonder they are full most of the time.

The entire experience was superb. Chelsea was friendly, knowledgeable and a wonderful waitress. We showed up early for our reservation and greatly appreciated how accommodating the hostess was for getting us a table. Thank you!

Too much breading on the Oysters. Usually they are pretty good.

Father daughter show date. Food and service was excellent. Best chicken marsala I have had in a long time. Jamie, our server was excellent and kept things moving. Was very busy and had to wait to get seated even with a reservation. But worth the wait. Still made the show on time.

We've been to Tarrant's many times and have always left feeling completely satisfied. We were early for our reservation, so, we sat at the bar and had a glass of wine and beer and the fried oysters appetizer. Delicious! Then, we got our booth and ordered a salad and entrees. I had
the opakapaka. It was delicious. My wife ordered the sheepshead. Too much cumin which
made it too spicy. I tried it and it was spicy. Other than that, a very pleasant experience.
We'll go back.
