I'll give it 5 stars, food selection is good, Shaunice provided great service along with a great musical playlist. We ordered fried green tomatoes, fish taco, crab louie salad and seafood combo all nicely split for two. The fried green tomato appetizer needs a little more flavor. The lemon drop martini was the bomb! The only thing that would have put the experience over the top would be a key line pie on the dessert menu. For now the lemon drop will have to do! Thanks Shaunice for a great experience! We recommend and will be back!

First thing, I asked for a salad with romaine instead of field greens, and the waitress said "No. It comes with field greens". So I ordered a caesar salad instead, and understood why. The romaine was only the outer leaves, tough and limp. The salad dressing came separately in a small bowl, and was thick and gloppy. Very mediocre and I probably won't go back, due to their lack of flexibility and 'meh' food. Sad, because Tarrant's downtown is one of my favorite restaurants!

My meal was so good, I didn't want to stop eating! However, we had a difficult time hearing the conversation with our friends because it was so noisy. I would highly recommend this if you aren't looking for a nice, quiet venue. You just can't beat the food!

We were celebrating my Mom’s birthday and had a great time and a good dinner. One glitch was that a water glass broke and cut my Dad’s finger...but all staff and the manager were fabulous! There brownie Sunday could feed a family of four and is so yummy...terrific value! Thanks so much!

I had lunch here with a friend and we both thoroughly enjoyed our food.

The water glasses were foggy and the water tasted metallic. The waitress was nice but really slow for lunch service.

Overall I would definitely return so I can score them higher

My medium rare steak was dry as can be, almost like it was heated in a microwave. The crabcake had a very hard outer coating, once you got through it, the crabmeat was so dry it just fell apart. For the price, I was expecting a better quality meal. I definitely will not be returning.

Great selection of food — from appetizers to pizza and calzones, sandwiches, salads, and full entrees. All freshly prepared and very tasty. I’ve marked this restaurant as a favorite, and I’ll dine there whenever I’m in Richmond.

We went for Fathers Day & overall everything was good. My son didn’t enjoy his fish & chips. The fries were salty and the fish was fried too hard. The portion size of the fish was questionable too. There was a decent size piece of fish and a small that looked like a chicken drumstick piece of fish. Like he got whatever was left of the fish. My buffalo shrimp were warm bordering on cold.

Went for a holiday brunch and it was obviously very crowded and kitchen was backed up by several large parties. Wait staff was extremely accommodating given the tough situation that was no fault of their own. When the meal did arrive it was excellent as it always is.

Tarrant’s was recommended by a family member. They had never dined at Tarrant’s West but spoke highly of Tarrant’s in downtown Richmond. Cocktails and wine were promptly served. I had a beet salad which was fairly good but I discovered a piece of paper in the salad with a barcode. I shared my findings with the waitress and she apologized and offered to bring me another salad but most of the salad had been eaten so the offer was refused.

The entre selected was crabmeat stuffed flounder. The flavor was quite good. Rice accompanied and was dry and one could tell it had been scooped with an “ ice cream scoop” and plated. The mixed vegetables of broccoli, green beans and carrots were very bland and and dry. The snap green beans were minimally cooked.

The check was brought to the table. I anticipated the waiter would express further regret for the paper in the beet salad. Yet nothing was said and I noted I had been charged for the salad.

I dine out often and in varied locales. Rarely do I offer a complaint. I had encouraged the waitress to share with the kitchen staff and manager the finding of paper in the salad for the purpose of information so that this error could be avoided in the future. I sense no one was told or if someone in the kitchen or management were told they did not care enough to visit our table. Either way this is an example of very poor service.

We chose Tarrant's specifically for their participation in RVA Crabcake Week. The crabcakes were average, and there was no mention in the menu or by our server until asked about the event.
They should do a better job highlighting the participation with special menu options highlighted just like restaurants do for RVA Restaurant Week.
