Anniversary brunch. Loved the patio. Clean. The brunch was simple but with a flair. Serving size fair.
Try the Huevous Rancheros. Excellant.

My wife and I went for "date night" and it was busy on a Friday night. Multiple large parties and a crowded place. We had reservations so we got seated immediately but I don't recall seeing a single other table avaialble. This place also had very limited parking, but they have valet service.

The food is very good but a little pricier than comparable restaurants. Better acoustics might lower the noise-level as it was difficult to have a conversation even at a corner-booth table.

This is the second time that I have been to this restaurant and both times were great experiences. The food was good, reasonably priced, and best of all, the servers did not rush you off the table. I would definitely recommend Tarrant's West.

First time here and we left very impressed. The food was good, not great, but a solid good. The service was incredible and the ambiance was very relaxing. We were so impressed with Sharice (sp?). Amazing young lady who took great care of us, and even brought my son, (who just graduated high school) a plate with fancy writing in birthday cake gel. Doesn’t sound like much, but it was a very nice thought and we really appreciated it. We had a large party and service was not only quick, but we couldn’t finish our drinks without them being refilled if we tried!. Cant say enough, this place had great atmosphere and good selection too, we will certainly be back.

Pros and Cons of Tarrant's West. It was our first time dining there and it will be our last. Personally, I think that restaurants that have a huge varied "diner" style menu rarely do any one dish really well. The best part of the dinner was definitely the beet salad - awesome! and the beer selection. The fried oysters and calamari were not crispy, the halibut was a little mushy (not too fresh), the barramundi was great but the risotto was way too al dente (crunchy) We ordered a cheesecake with blueberry sauce and I was told it was delicious. So all in all, a dinner of ups and downs.

Wonderful restaurant with an exhaustive menu. Lots of options from steak, pasta, seafood, chicken and salads. Lot of families in the restaurant and kids seemed happy as well. Nice bar area if you have to wait for a table.

Oh my goodness, what a gem! Overheard a coworker talking about this restaurant and decided to invite my friend to check it out with me. So glad we did. The curb appeal did NOT give the impression of the classy inside...the friendly hostess made us feel welcomed right away....our white table cloth table sat near the window gave us the cozy and classy atmosphere we wanted. The waitress was also friendly and made wonderful food recommendations—although I’m not sure we would have been disappointed with anything on the menu, the food was soooo good! I will definitely recommend this restaurant to others!!

Wonderful place! My only negative comment is that the salad dressing..blue cheese and the ranch...was very, very watery. I could not eat it (and I'm " Mikey"... I eat anything). Server was very very nice, and pleasant. Nevertheless, I will come again.

Although I am partially to blame for not double-checking, but I felt somewhat blindsided by the buffet only menu on Mother's Day. I didn't see any mention of that when I researched and made reservations. The value wasn't comparable to the price.

We hadn't been here in several years. Since our last visit they must have added 15% more tables, so now, it's packed with only about 14" between tables. We felt like we were sitting in the laps of those next to us. I'm sure they felt the same. This new seating plan also means that there's little room to move through the dining room and staff seems to think that they have the right of way. One would think that they would have been taught that guests always have the right of way.

Food was pretty good and came out quickly. That said, I got the impression that my dish had been "pre-made" and just heated up.

Our server was great.

Great spot for celebration...unfortunately, the good food and service were marred by the management's refusal, or struggle, with a family whose children (2) were out of behavioral and noise control. Family noise can be tolerated, it's life. This was ridiculous in volume and lack of effective response from staff.

Took some out of town guests for dinner last Sunday evening, and was disappointed in the food. Have been there before for drinks and appetizers which were very good, but these entrees lacked originality, presentation, and honestly weren’t that tasty. I’d go again to meet people for cocktails, but probably not dinner.
