Tarry Lodge Enoteca and Pizzeria - New Haven Ratings and Reviews
The food was absolutely delicious!! We enjoyed all of our meals! I would highly recommend this restaurant! The only ‘complaint’ I would have was that we found the house wine rather expensive...$15/glass!! Parking too can be an issue since the only parking is street parking, no lot or valet parking available.
The two of us were there for a Sunday lunch. A relaxed atmosphere, the server, Megan, was great, knowledgeable of the food and helpful with suggestions, be sure to ask for her. The food was delicious, plenty of surprises from the spicy octopus to the olive oil on soft ice cream. And clearly someone grew up not liking the taste of Brussels spouts and decided change the taste, sweetening the vegetable with a honey sauce, not incredibly delicious, but an exciting bold move. All the reasons we bother to leave home for a meal.
While our meal overall was excellent, my eggplant parm. entree could have used more cheese. It looked like a work of art and the eggplant was exceptional, but I was craving more of a balance with the cheese. We both thought the Maple Cheesecake was one of the best desserts we have ever had and we have had a few! We will be returning to Tarry Lodge! Thank you!
The service was awesome. The food was delicious. There was a slight mishap next to us and the manager, hostess and waiter could not have been more accommodating to us for the inconvenience. They handled it in a manner that it did not even impact our night.
What a wonderful experience.
Loved the ambience and service was good.
Thought the food was...meh, not special and therefore over-priced-but that’s the case of all “fancy” restaurants in New Haven. Too many places offer pizza.
Would go again just cause I enjoyed the ambience. Nice cozy place to meet up, chat, and have a bite. Wine selection seemed good.
The food was outstanding but our server was off...we asked for bread as we were starving and had been waiting on our friend who was delayed in arriving and she tried to deny it to us due to the fact that we still had our menus and didn't want us spilling oil on them. She knew the menu very well but had a very passive/aggressive attitude the entire time we interfaced with her - we giggled consistently throughout the meal thinking that maybe we were being 'punked'.
I was disappointed in the calvofiore pizza I had for lunch at Tarry Lodge. I did not taste or see any cauliflower on the pizza. It did have brussel sprouts which were shaved very thin & would have been better if they were cooked crispy, and been more plentiful. There was some delicata squash on it, which also could have been more plentiful, and pancetta. And that cost $18, you should not be disappointed if you are paying $18 for a personal pizza. The bathroom could have been cleaner & the toilet paper should have been on the dispenser & not leaning on top.
I do not plan to return to this restaurant.
Met a friend for lunch and a visit and stayed 1 1/2 hours. Only complaint is the following: Had a reservation for noon. Arrived at 10 minutes to noon and was told restaurant doesn't open until noon. There is no place to sit and wait and the hostess did not offer to seat me for the few minutes until they were "ready". By the time noon arrived there were six people standing crowded into an 8' x 15' interior hallway. If they take a reservation for noon, it is entirely reasonable for patrons to arrive a few minutes early . . . otherwise they should make their first reserve at 12:15.
Visited Tarry Lodge based on a recommendation from a friend. Everything was going good, we ordered Eggplant Alma parmigiana and goat cheese with cashew pizza. While eating bite on a cashewnut Shell, which practically ruined the entire experience. Server was nice and we did mentioned it to the server. We expected some sort of explanation from the Chef or the staff how did it happen, probably will not be visiting again.
Tarry Lodge never disappoints! Ordered off the the regular menu this time and the mussels and clams in a spicy-but-not-too broth were perfect. Their personal pizzas are also great, as is the pasta and some delicious specialty drinks including a cranberry Bellini that was just right. One of my authentically Italian friends was duly impressed.
This was a disappointing meal. It was not bad but our expectations were high given the Mario Batalli connection. My wife's fish was overcooked and dry, my daughter who is a light eater was hungry after her meal and I had their most popular dish and thought it was just okay. I don't mind paying a bit more for a meal but expected the food to be more memorable. Not someplace I would go to again.
We had a very good meal with outstanding service the night before Thanksgiving. Because of the holiday, few tables were filled, and it was pleasantly much quieter than usual. My daughter and I split the spinach and burrata starter. She and her father enjoyed pizzas and I the tagliatelle bolognese, which was superb. We will return.
We were in town for the Yale/Harvard football game and to see our student son, so I knew it wold be a busy night. Originally, I had a reservation for five people and the earliest available was at 9:30 pm. Unfortunately, two in our group decided to head home after the game, rather than join us as planned. I hated to only show up with 3/5 and to have to wait around until so late in the evening. I called, and Howard was very able to accommodate a smaller table at 8:00. The restaurant has nice ambiance, and the server and hostess were very nice. Great wine selection. Started with a mushroom appetizer (sorry I don't have precise names, but it has "Hen" in the name) and was served with arugula and crisp cheese bread. It was different, and we liked it very much. A friend with us is VERY particular about what is in a dish and how she wants it served. The server was quite patient and provided what was asked of her. My husband had a single ravioli dish with mushrooms--it was terrific. My friend had a brined chicken--very tender and not too salty. I had a pizza with brussel sprouts and prosciutto with a white cheese sauce. Honestly, of the three entrees, the pizza was my least favorite. It just wasn't crisp at all, yet the bottom was charred from the wood fire pizza oven. The combination was good, I just would have preferred a crispier, firmer pizza crust. For dessert, my friend had a flour-less chocolate cake (didn't try), and my husband and I split the olive oil ice cream with honey and marcones (spell?)--I'm not spelling that correctly, but I assume they were some type of nut crumble added as a topping. The ice cream was tasty, but it was a soft-serve style and less creamy than I'd like. All in all, it's a great place near the Yale Marriott, so we appreciated it's location on a rainy night. Staff was terrific and the place was full. I'd definitely go again and even try a different pizza--perhaps specify to try to get a crisper crust, if possible.
We've eaten many times at the Tarry Lodge locations in Westport and Port Chester and have never had a bad meal. The meal we had in New Haven was a real disappointment. The pizza was doughy and lacked flavor, the squash/goat cheese/pistachio appetizer was excessively salty, and the main courses were only OK. As an aside, my guest ask for a meatball with his pasta - something that the restaurant clearly has since they have a meatball pizza - and was told no. It was a quite Monday night and the restaurant was only half full, so the kitchen can't claim this was due to a busy night. Frankly, if not for our lovely and attentive waitress, we'd give the restaurant one star.
My husband and I have been to Tarry Lodge four times now and I think it's safe to say it is our favorite restaurant in the area. We went this last time for my husband's birthday dinner and the staff at Tarry Lodge exceeded our expectations for this occasion. It was nice to see that they put the time and attention into looking at our reservation details. We also recently traveled to Italy over the summer and were incredibly excited to see some familiar dishes, wine and dessert on the menu from our trip. Tarry Lodge is a truly authentic and fresh Italian restaurant. We can't wait to return.
Went for lunch during restaurant week with my wife and two children. nothing is said on the website but on the restaurant week menu it says no sharing. Though I can understand adults not sharing, but really? The restaurant would not let an adult share with a child? The " manager " checked with the chef who would not allow it and said the children must order seperately. Are things that bad that you can need to force children to order at twelve noon when you just opened for lunch ?
