Delicious brunch, great mimosas! Service was great! She crab was not the best.

Not as charming and as low key as downtown location, but service and food is definitely on par here. A bit of a hustle feel at times, not always, to move the table by the staff. Staff is still excellent.

My $30 swordfish was like eating a piece of shoe leather it was so over cooked. The she crab soup was tasty. Our waitress was outstanding. I was served a wheat beer instead of the IPA I asked for. You can skip this place if you are a foodie. The other three people in my party agreed as well. We won’t be back.

My husband and I went to this restaurant for my birthday recently. He ordered a fish dish that was wonderful and I ordered the chicken pot pie. My meal was only average and I would not recommend it, but other than that we had a very enjoyable time. Our waitress was attentive but didn't give us a verbal list of the specials which would have helped me perhaps order something different. We plan on returning soon.

We needed a place that everyone liked with a creative menu. Tarrants West has not disappointed. We like the diverse menu - from great sandwiches to pizza to seafood and it's all good. Everyone was happy and satisfied.

I was disappointed with the dinners.
The filet was tough and was replaced.
The barramundi was overcooked on a bed of mushy rice.
The asparagus was sad!
I have had many good meals at Tarrants...this was not one of them!

Excellent new sandwich on the menu! We were there on a quiet night so it was not crowded at all. Excellent service and a menu that will please everyone. Sides are better than any similar restuarant around. Tables are spread out. Great spot!

My party of six met for a New Year's Day brunch. Brunch menu had something for everyone. From the eggs benedict to a blt to steak and eggs, food was tasty and well-prepared. The service was mostly attentive with minor lapses - lots of coffee needed on first day of year. The brunch priced mimosas helped to keep things mellow. This was a great place to welcome the first day of the year.

Felt like I wasted good money here...although the server was very nice and felt bad we did not enjoy our meal and discounted what I ordered. The meatloaf was not good at all...no binder just mushy hamburger meat. Wife’s steak was suppose to be medium rare...came out extra rare and slightly cold in a large part of the middle. Everything seemed to have the same spice added to it...same mushroom sauce on the meatloaf and the steak. We ordered a cheese and fruit app and was super disappointed that it came with Brie, goat cheese and a herbed Havarti for $11.50. We expected a more artisanal cheese selection for that price but I guess that’s our fault for having high expectations for that price. That’s DC prices for not quality products. Made reservations since it was New Years Eve and got sat out on the enclosed patio area where we sat next to a window and nearly froze. Overall, I just gave a chuck of money away. Can’t recommend it for any reason and won’t be going back.

Lunch group. Service was good. Lunch was good. Just took awhile for food to arrive. This Tarrant’s location is more convenient, but it seems that the Tarrant’s loser to VCU runs more efficiently. If efficiency here could make a significant improvement I’d visit more often.

Three of us had a great meal on Monday night. Our waitress, Shaunice, was very helpful in making recommendations for dinner. My wife loved the boneless chicken on waffle, while I enjoyed the meatloaf. Monday night's are nice in that it is a little slower pace. We will be back soon.

We always enjoy our visits to Tarrants West. The only negative this time was how long it took for our meals to be served after ordering. Our server was excellent so I think the hold up had to be in the kitchen. Always good food, reasonable prices, and friendly staff.

My husband and I went to Tarrant's West for his birthday. We were originally seated in a room with two very loud tables with drunk people. We couldn't have a conversation. The waitress offered to move us to a quieter location, which we were very thankful for. I had a cosmo and my husband ordered a beer. Our food came out quickly but we were definitely disappointed. I ordered the crab cakes and I barely finished one. They were bland and just seemed like they came out of a freezer. My husband had the oysters- he found shell in his rice and the oysters were chewy. Overall, our bill was around $80. For $80, I expect a much nicer dining experience. We will not be coming back.

Our waiter was a little too busy...he brought us bread with no plates. He went off so after a while my friend got up and picked up small plates from another table for us. We later had trouble finding him to get more bread and refills. Overall, the lunch celebrating a friends birthday was nice and the food was good. Hope to return again soon.

Thanksgiving dinner was delicious and ample. The atmosphere was both festive and friendly and the staff did an excellent job with a full house. You would never know that they had been working at a steady pace the entire day. Our server, Nayif, was truly an outstanding young man, efficient and pleasant. What a pleasure it was to meet him. He gave us an 8x10 memorable day. Thank you.
