We were at Tarrant‘s West about a month ago and I got the filet mignon dinner. It was outstanding, so we decided to go again to celebrate our anniversary. I ordered the same exact meal and it just wasn’t very good. The fillet had some kind of tomato sauce on it that changed the whole flavor. The vegetables are over cooked and had too much oil on them. And the noise level was very high since so many people are seated too close together. I really didn’t enjoy the dinner this time and can only give it 3 stars.

It was a girl’s night and we enjoyed our meal at the restaurant. The appetizer’s were a big hit with the ladies as well as the drinks. The only bad part is one of my friends had trouble parking. I view that as one of the big issues with this restaurant, so I take that into consideration when making plans to eat there.

Tarrant's West is one of my go-to spots b/c it's always good and it's not Short Pump. This visit was on a Wednesday night and it was fairly empty. I waited at the bar for my date and waited a surprisingly long time for service considering how empty it was. Note to self: if I want to be able to hear my date, don't choose the patio. These are minor gripes. The food is great. I recommend it.

Terrible service. Waited 15 minutes at the bar for a drink, no bartender in sight. Finally 1 arrived, ordered a cabernet, he came back 5 minutes later and asked what i wanted, told him again and then another person came by with the wine asking who ordered the cabernet. I was with a client and this was a joke.

Dinner service was awful and the food was marginal. Never again.

The food is always good and the only reason we keep going back. The service is always lousy! We either get our meals one at a time (meaning we sit and wait for all to me served and meals get cold) or they just don’t get it right.

WE love Tarrant's West and go there at least once every six weeks. We frequented Tarrant's Café but find the access to the Three Chopt location more to our liking. Tarrant's food is always GREAT and the service is always GOOD to GREAT! I tried a new addition to the Appetizer menu, the Brussel Sprouts. I told our server to convey to the chef, this offering is a winner and to keep it on the menu. My fried oyster appetizer was good as usual, cooked to perfection. My husband was more than pleased with his full-rack of baby back ribs, which is a HUGE serving. We alway bring home three-quarters of his ribs for a meal or two later in the week.

This is the first time eating at Tarrant's West; awesome Happy Hours specials including their well-rounded menu. There were too many items to choose from and everything looked great. Can't wait to go back for brunch and dinner! My friends were all happy with their dishes as well.

Tarrant's West is a very popular spot, and no doubt the food is the main attraction. On a rainy Friday night, it was packed with neighborhood clients. The parking lot was jammed, with some folks having to park far away or rely on the diligent valet service. Our table was just big enough for four, and right at the aisle to the kitchen. It was also closer than usual to another table, where you hope you can just avoid looking at the persons sitting so very close to you to give them some privacy. Service was wonderful, as were the bacon brussel sprouts and entrees. The orzo was nutty and "al dente" if that's appropriate terminology. I wish that the bill had been a bit more reasonable. The orzo entree, originally $14 as a vegetarian dish, zoomed skyward to $24 simply by adding salmon. The salmon was awesome, prepared perfectly, and seasoned well. But, our entire bill for two was about $80, with only one alcoholic beverage and one dessert. That's a bit much for casual dining after a long work week.

Tarrant's West had the potential to be a lovely experience, however the restaurant left us hungry and disappointed. The staff wasn't rude but they weren't very attentive, we had a few people who had strict dietary restrictions, and despite request for substitutions, our food was brought to us with what they originally came with and not what we requested. The overall ambiance of the restaurant is nice until you realize they can't seem to choose between a saloon or 1600s British castle. Overall I don't think we'll be giving them a second chance, however the comfort foods portion of the menu is definitely the best option as the chicken and waffles were a star at our table as well as the pizza.

We normally don't eat out on Valentine's Day as restaurants are overcrowded and usually service is not great. We decided to give it a try and we were pleasantly surprised. From the time we walked in the door, we were greeted warmly. Our waitress was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. She did not make us feel rushed or that she was frantic. Our food was hot and delicious. Congratulations Tarrant's West, you have once again give us a wonderful evening.

We made reservations to celebrate the birthday of someone in our party. Our table was ready as soon as we arrived. We were seated and our server took our drink order immediately. She also told about their 1/2 off on bottles of wine special. The food we ordered arrived at a reasonable amount of time and a very nice birthday message was written on the dessert plate we ordered for the table. The food was great and the prices were reasonable.

A little slow on service when we first got seated (5:30 and not crowded so no obvious reason as to why). Once service started, it rolled along at an appropriate pace. Food was excellent; portions generous.

We were pleasantly surprised when we returned for a 2nd visit. Our 1st visit wasn't all that good, but it was during a "Restaurant Week" special. We decided to try again and the food was excellent, our waitress was very attentive and pleasant, and the price was a great value. We will return again!
