Brunch is overpriced for what it is.
Tarrent's is better than Tarrent's West.

It was very easy to make a reservation for the day and time we wanted. It was our 44th anniversary and my wife's birthday, so we wanted a special place to celebrate. Our server was polite and competent but looked like she really didn't want to be there. A smile or a compliment about our celebration would have been nice, but I felt we were invisible at times due to the fact that she was covering too many tables to dwell anywhere for more than a few seconds. Still great food and happy hour prices will keep us coming back.

I was disappointed with our waiter, he never properly wore his mask. It was never over his nose, and barely covering his mouth most of the time. I probably won’t be back due to lack of enforcing covid guidelines.

Tarrant's West
Responded on April 16, 2021

Thanks for the review. I'm sorry to hear your server wasn't wearing his mask properly. Our managers are typically pretty good at enforcing safe, Covid protocols. I'll be sure to let out managers know to continue to enforce proper PPE wear. It is our job and priority to keep our guests and staff safe.

My friend forgot our plans, so I was left waiting for an hour at the table alone, until I could reach her and she arrived. Everyone was gracious and brought more water as I waited. The hostess, in particular, seemed more concerned about me than an “empty/not turned over” table. Thanks to Everyone. Exactly what I’d expect from one of my favorite restaurants. I often recommend both Tarrant locations and pre-Covid was usually at one or the other, once or twice a month.

Food is consistently good. We go there once a month & usually get similar choices. The staff could do better! They need more servers! Maybe their attitudes would be better & more gracious. We usually have the same one who is basically serving the entire sunroom & outside. Barely has time to listen to our order & then sometimes gets it wrong. Not totally their fault although she just doesn’t seem to be a warm person. Patience & kindness on our part helps but each time we go there it’s the same! Shame on us for going back? We really try to support local, but my patience is wearing thin as more places are starting to open up we have more choices.

We visited Tarrants West for Easter Brunch/Lunch. Our server was friendly and courteous. Our food was delivered in a timely manner. Everyone enjoyed their selection. We would return to this restaurant again in the future. The socially distanced tables on the porch made dining during the pandemic feel safe and comfortable.

I don't know if our server was having an off night but her care of our table was very poor. It was the first time that we'd decided to dine in at a restaurant since the pandemic started and we have always enjoyed Tarrants so we chose there to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant was definitely not crowded.
The food was good so hats off to the chef but Briana B as our waitress was not on her game at all. She neglected to bring our son his salad when she brought the rest of ours and then had to be reminded again when she still didn't bring it. My husband reminded her that he didn't have utensils for his entree when she brought the main course AND we reminded her about the salad again. She, after a bit, brought the salad but still not utensils so we reminded her again. She certainly didn't hurry to get them. When it came time for dessert, she didn't bring one of the coffees we ordered and once again took her time after we reminded her. And just as a last note, our table was not surrounded by any other tables but she insisted on reaching over us to serve others at the table rather than walking around to the other side.
Tarrants and it's sister restaurants have always been favorites of ours but this experience definitely fell flat.

Responded on April 16, 2021

Thanks for the review, Barbara. I'm sorry to hear your service fell flat. Definitely not the type of service we are known for! Our servers sometimes have their of days, but it's np excuse for subpar service. I'll be sure to let our managers know to encourage and support our staff so that this does not happen again. We do hope you'll come back soon to receive that hospitality you're used to!

Dining with friend for lunch. Food was delicious, service was fair. We felt the waitress didn’t care about serving us and everything we asked for was work for her. She had no personality and wasn’t friendly at all. Disappointed in how we were treated. Food is good but customer service needs improvement. Won’t be rushing back.

I had the pear and goat cheese salad. It was okay, nothing to write home about. The grilled chicken it came with was bland. Service was awful; the waiter was clearly on his last table of the night and couldn't have cared less. He forgot every single thing we asked for, wasn't around to answer our questions about the menu, and wasn't super friendly. The appetizers, particularly the tempura calamari, are absolutely delicious, divine even. In my opinion, the appetizers are better than the entrees.
