This was the first time coming here where the food came out almost cold and the meat was a little over cooked. Usually we have a wonderful experience however we did not have a very good one. I do hope this was just a anomaly.

My wife and I dined at Tarrant's West last night. My wife ordered the Chicken Picatta, which she had not seen on the menu before, and was very pleased with it. I chose the Tilapia covered with crab meat, which was delicious. (A very positive note: the meat was in a separate dish which was very hot, which kept the fish and crab hot throughout the meal.) The sides (green beans and rice) were also very good.

We decided to go halves on a walnut fudge brownie for desert... SPOILER ALERT — this desert could easily feed four people! It's a nice-sized brownie with whipped cream and four scoops of vanilla ice cream.

Our server was very attentive and friendly. We enjoyed our evening at Tarrant's West.

The food was exceptional the service (Dom) we couldn't have asked for anyone better. Not sure what was better the food or the awesome service. Thank you so much for a great dinner. This place is never a disappointment.

While the service was very good and the restaurant was not too crowded and thus not noisy, the food was good but certainly not great. The crab cakes fit that description exactly--good but not great; serving the tartar sauce in plastic containers with lids is a bit "low class" for an upscale restaurant, even allowing for Covid. The salad that I had was also "okay." The flourless chocolate dessert with strawberries and whipped cream was likewise good but not great.

Normally one of my favorite places when we’re in town but the Ruebin sandwich, which was always my favorite, had very little meat & cheese on it.

The server, Donald, was absolutely amazing. Very attentive, but didn't interrupt us too often. The food was great, however, the room was very cold. So, the food lost it's heat very fast. Overall, we enjoyed our experience and would definitely return.

Food was as always delicious. Service not its usual excellence. Waitress wasn’t attentive. Kept trying to get attention from other waiters since we didn’t see her after we placed our order.

Finally we got our food and asked for more coffee. She brought small pot that only contained enough for one cup. Husband wasn’t happen. Luke warm at that.

The seafood combo was delicious. The special surf and turf was a good value, but the steak was a little done for medium rare and had too much salt. I would have liked to have some melted butter for the lobster tail. Our server was very friendly and helpful, especially as bust as the restaurant was on New Year's Eve.

We confirmed patio dining but since rain was forecast we were moved inside. My husband is high medical risk if he gets Covid. Before deciding to stay we asked if we could dine with our windows open and were told yes. 2 people complained so we had to close them. My husband is worried he was exposed.

We were seated on the side patio and it was freezing. I asked before we were seated if had heat and they said yes. Then I asked to have heat turned on or up never did. It was miserable. It took over an hour at lunch for two meals and a pizza. It was horrible.

I’ve long been a fan of Tarrant’s, but was disappointed on Sunday. Everything we ordered basically came out cool to cold. The scrambled eggs seemed like they’d been plated and sitting around for a while waiting to fill an order. The bacon was cold and the waffle was tepid. My friend’s corn beef hash was cold and her grits weren’t even warm enough to melt the shredded cheese on top.

Very loud near us and very slow service which I think is unusual. There was a large gathering going on which probably explains the slowness. Always, a good meal though.

We met with a couple of close friends for lunch. We were promptly seated and our server approached us quickly. Our orders were delivered in a reasonable amount of time which allowed us to chat with each other. When our food was served, we asked for some additional condiments which arrived several minutes later. All of our orders were well prepared and quite tasty. We all enjoyed the dining.

The ambiance and food were good. The staff appeared to be a little short-staffed. They were good with their service but seemed to have more tables to cover than they could manage efficiently. I don’t think it was their fault at all Also maybe the kitchen needed more help to get things out more efficiently. That seems to be the norm when eating out these days. We will definitely go back.

Service was slower than expected. Not to the point of creating problems though. I imagine it is due to pandemic staffing problems.
The good news is that the food was tasty. The She-Crab soup was tremendous!

First time here. Traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner was very good. Food could have been served a bit warmer, but turkey breast meat and sweet potatoes with candied nuts were especially good. Green beans and mashed potatoes were above average. Portion size was very large and our server was very professional. The restaurant is definitely worth a visit.

They are low on staff which was evident only by the big “now hiring” signs on the entrance doors and the long wait to be seated. However, once seated, our server was attentive, our food was excellent, and we could not tell they were short staffed at all!

I’m new to the area, this place came highly recommended, and did not disappoint!
