Great venue for a birthday lunch or dinner. Staff is great and attentive.
Hey Shanee, Thanks for the awesome review! Our staff is such a hospitable bunch, right? I'll tell them to keep up the great work. Thanks, Liz, Owner
We elected to visit Tarrant's at 5:30 before the evening crowd and it was a definite good decision. The place was relatively quiet and the server was attentive without being bothersome. The food was delicious and sufficient. We will return.
Hey Dave, Thanks for the awesome review! We pride ourselves on great food and great service. I'm so glad you experienced it! I'll be sure to let our staff know what a great job they're doing. Thanks, Liz, Owner
Waitress was not very attentive. Meal that was described to be “grilled” was actually pan-fried with a batter. Water was never re-filled even though we ordered appetizers, entree and dessert.
Hi, Thank you for your feedback. I'm so sorry to hear of your poor experience with us. It's embarrassing to hear about the type of service you received as well as your food not being what you thought. It is not our norm if you take at our other reviews. Could you tell what meal you had? I'd like to get to the bottom of that. Thanks, Liz, Owner
Took a friend to dinner to celebrate a birthday. Fabulous complimentary birthday dessert!
Hey Lori, Thanks for the great review! So glad you and your friend enjoyed your dining experience with us! Birthdays are so special, we're happy to make them even more special. Thanks, Liz, Owner
server took two plates off table while two of my guests were still eating , a real no no!
i was never offered a coffee refill with dessert. my mahi-mahi was so over cooked i could barely chew it and a very tiny piece for 25.$
i took three guests and was very disappointed.
Regularly go and always have a great experience! Recommend it to anyone!
Hey Russ, Thanks for the stellar review. I'm glad you always have such a great time with us. We appreciate your continued loyalty! Can't wait to see you again. Thanks, Liz, Owner

Hey William, Thanks for the awesome review! So glad you had such an enjoyable dining experience with us! We pride ourselves on great food and great hospitality-glad you got to witness it! Thanks Liz, Owner
One meal at our table of four arrived cold, but staff was very attentive
Hey Marie, I'm sorry to hear that one of your meals arrived cold. I'll be sure to remind our servers and back of house staff to have a sense of urgency so that these things do not continue to happen. I am glad to hear that your server was very attentive. We pride ourselves on being hospitable! Thanks, Liz, Owner
Our book club REALLY enjoyed being seated (reserved) the round table! It made it so much easier to have a conversation! I’ll be booking again for next month’s lunch. We also really appreciated our server. He was perfectly attentive without being intrusive. We had a great experience. And the cosmo was on point!
Hey Jill, Thanks for the review! I'm so glad you and your book club enjoyed your lunch and service. I'll be sure to let our staff know how wonderful they're doing. We can't wait to see you again next month! Thanks, Liz, Owner
This is my favorite restaurant in Richmond, and I've been to several different ones. I have yet to be disappointed in any way! I absolutely recommend this restaurant!
Thanks for the review! I'm so glad to hear we've become your favorite restaurant! We really appreciate it. We can't wait to see you again! Thanks, Liz, Owner
Terrific service and food. Loved the open windows on porch (getting us away from loud large table group inside). I didn't even mind the old disco music being pumped out, but some jazz would have been even more to our liking! Mostly, your wait staff, greeter, chef... all great!
Hey, Thanks for the great review! Our patio is such a gorgeous place to dine, right?! I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed your food as well as the service. We pride ourselves to great food and hospitality. Thanks, Liz, Owner
Beautiful restaurant, lovely/attentive server, great beer and entrees. The peel and eat shrimp for an appetizer looked an odd color, very white, and didn’t taste the best. Overall was enjoyable.
Thanks for the great feedback. I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your shrimp-we have a new executive chef that's working diligently with our chefs to make sure these kinds of issue don't continue. However, I'm glad you enjoyed your entrees and beers and that your server was so hospitable! Thanks, Liz, Owner
Had a wonderful young man, Elijah, as a waiter! He made the meal very enjoyable! Food was great as well!
Hey Lola, Thanks for the review! I'll be sure to let Elijah know to keep up the great work. Glad to hear you enjoyed your food as well. Thanks, Liz, Owner
I've never had a bad meal at Tarrant's West. I think it's the same menu as Tarrant's downtown, but for some reason I prefer the food in the West End. The atmosphere is great, although the patio can get noisy if you're trying to talk to your date. Sometimes the bar service can be slow, but they make great drinks (few places can make a decent Sazerack). I love that it's near Short Pump, but I can stay off Broad Street to get there.
Hey Andrew, Thanks for the review, I love our drinks too! Did you know happy hour starts at 11am?! Thanks, Liz, Owner
We were very pleased with our experience at Tarrant's West. Started off with a beverage from the very good beer and wine list. Our fried brussel sprouts were fabulous! Our entrees were plentiful and very well prepared. Service was good. We we look forward to returning.
Thanks for the stellar review! So glad to hear you had an amazing dining experience with us. The brussels sprouts are delicious and our entrees are great at providing left overs! I'll be sure to let the staff know that they're doing so well. Thanks, Liz, Owner
The main dining area was rather loud at 6:30 as the area was nearly full of people on a Wednesday evening. The noise level subsided within an hour when several people had left. There are two other dining areas that might have been more pleasant for conversation.
Many choices on the menu; she crab soup was excellent as were both the salmon and baby back ribs. Berry cobbler with vanilla ice cream was more than enough for two. Service was prompt and attentive.
Thanks for the feedback! Dinner time can get a bit noisy. Our guests are usually a very lively bunch! Glad to hear you enjoyed your dinner and dessert. She crab soup is definitely a favorite of mine! Thanks, Liz, Owner
It was a mid 90’s day in RVA. Even though there was plenty of room in the main nicely air conditioned main dining room, our group of six were seated on the west side enclosed porch which was warm to the point of discomfort. Perhaps that is Tarrant’s payback for a group who arrives 15 minutes late to a 5:45 PM reservation. Over the next 90 minutes no other diners were seated on the west side porch.
Blackened fish was tasty but dry.
Hey, Thanks for the feedback. We appreciate every comment and concern. It's typically our company policy to ask where the guest would like to sit or seat them elsewhere if where they are is uncomfortable. I'm so sorry this wasn't done and we'll make sure that policy is enforced next time. Thanks, Liz, Owner
The food was delicious and moderately priced. Our server, Mallorie, was excellent! She was very professional, courteous, and good. We did not feel rushed and were able to enjoy our meal and visit with friends. We will definitely go back to Tarrant's West.
Hey Melissa, thanks for the great review. It's our job to make sure our guests experience great food and great service and you got both! I'll be sure to let Mallorie know how stellar she's doing. Thanks. Liz, Owner
Food is great. Service great. Was disappointed that they brought the totally wrong meal to my aunt and said oh well I don't know how to remedy that other than a dessert but you probably don't want a free dessert since it's 11 am.
Hey Diane, thanks for feedback. I'm so sorry to hear your aunt was given the incorrect meal. We're usually on point with service, but it sounds like it was an off morning. However, I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the service and thought the food was great. Thanks, Liz, Owner
Six older men were looking for a good restaurant to meet and chat. Needed to be quiet enough for older guys to hear and have comfortable seating for six. Perfect location, excellent food and menu, attentive service. Highly recommend.
Hey Tim, Thanks for the wonderful feedback. I'm happy you and your friends enjoyed yourselves. Our food is pretty great and service as well! Thanks, Liz, Owner
My Maui Maui was wonderful but my husband's baby back ribs were over cooked.
Hey Aimee, thanks for the feedback. We truly appreciate it. I'm sorry to hear your husband's ribs were over cooked, but I am glad you liked your Mahi Mahi. Thanks, Liz, Owner

Stuffed mushrooms are delicious and calamari had a wonderful light batter. Ask for sweet chili sauce to dip the calamari in. Waiter was excellent!
Jane, I love our stuffed mushrooms too! I'll be sure to let our staff know how amazing they're doing. Thanks, Liz, Owner
Disappointed with the food quality. Pork was over cooked. Bread required multiple requests.
I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed with your meal. I will inform our chef of your feedback. Thanks, Liz, Owner
Really enjoyed eating at Tarrant’s West for a small birthday celebration.

Hi Jill, I'm so glad to hear you had a great time and enjoyed the food and service. Thank you so much for your review. Thanks, Liz, Owner
Very good food. Loved the cinnamon rolls before breakfast!
Thanks for your feedback. The cinnamon rolls are so yummy. Thanks, Liz, Owner
This was our second time we dined (dinner) at Tarrants West. Both times we found it quite comfortable and certainly convenient. We were seated on a round table on the edge of the bar section. This section has the atmosphere of a pub. There are other dining section where the atmosphere is more conducive to quiet dining.
The food was entirely adequate. I ordered a tuna Niçoise salad which wasn’t strictly a nicoise. The greens were not the freshest. But the tuna was seared perfectly to order. Lots of other unknown but tasty ingredients. My dining mates ordered a pizza and Caesar salad as main courses. The apoetizer, crisp calamari, was perfectly prepared.
Hey Mickey, Thanks for such an awesome review. So glad you and your friends enjoyed the food so much. I love our tuna too. Thanks, Liz, Owner
Restaurant is nice. Food was ok, not great. Expensive for what I got.
Great food and excellent service. Dinners are somewhat pricey but well worth it.
Nice place for a quiet dinner. The service was good and the food was delicious.
