Celebrated our wedding anniversary, and it was pretty awesome.
The price for the surf and turf was pretty good, but likes so many places, the pasta was kinda high for pasta..
If they marked up beef at the same rate as pasta, the filet would be $100 for 6 ounces.

We have eaten here in the past, prior to the pandemic. Of course, the difference between then and now was extreme, taking into account this was a Thursday night. The food was good but the ambience was miserable, justified in large measure by the pandemic. I hope that this restaurant and others are able to survive until a reliable vaccine is available.

It was a very noisy night for dinner as there was as loud group of people. The server was overwhelmed and lacked attention to my table. Some of the food was cold and my favorite dish is no longer my favorite. Maybe there is a different chef that changed the recipe.

Not my favorite meal this time. So, usually, we enjoy our dining experience at this place. We had the fish taco and shrimp taco. The shrimp was good, but the mahi-mahi was dry. The lettuce in the side salad wasn’t as fresh as we would have liked and looked like it should have been tossed out. So, all in all, just so-so. Definitely not as good as previous dining experiences here.

Tarrant's West is quickly becoming a favorite. The atmosphere is absolutely perfect and the food and service make it a great value. I can tell that Tarrant's West is taking COVID seriously, offering a clean environment and they have a social distance protocol that matters. Tables are well spaced, bar area is closed off and staff is wearing masks and gloves consistently. My favorite things are the menu (LOTS of choices) and the ambiance. I'm a fan!

Not sure if the kitchen staff changed - but the Reuben I’ve ordered many times prior did not come out the same. First, it was probably cooked 10-15 minutes prior to when it was brought to our table - so it was cold. It only had the corned beef and sauerkraut, dressing on the side. The bread was to even toasted. If this was my first time at Tarrant’s, it would be my last. It was definitely an “off night” for the entire team.

I took my 92 year mother in law who isn’t getting out much. I have to say I was disappointed but realize things are different now. Service was fine but I feel our server was stretched. She watched us but had little time to stop. Not her fault. The food was disappointing. My tuna was dry and both of our green beans were tough and not worth eating. Her meal was ok but not worth what we paid.
Dessert was divine!! Sorry for negative comments. I am sure it will be better next time.
