After ditching a wait for Pepe’s we came to Tarry Lodge and I am so happy that we did!!! Overall we had an exceptional experience from food — burrata and prosciutto pizza, mushroom pasta — to our service. Absolutely can’t wait to return!!!

Dinner was delicious (eggplant part) and so was the gorgonzola salad. Salad, entree, and dessert for $39 (the special) was not really a special, as purchasing these items separately would have been about the same price. If you opted for some of the other entrees, you would have overpaid with the special. But food and the waiter were great.

At first we were seated against a wall next to a large party- my husband could barely move-but the staff was very accommodating and moved us. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful and made great suggestions! He was great! Everything was delicious.

We enjoyed a delicious meal a couple of weeks ago at Tarry Lodge with our group of 7 people. Service was attentive, professional and it was nice to see the staff working together as we were a late table and other servers were not busy so they chipped in. The food was also authentic Italian. We did not order any pizza and had a number of entrees and everyone was pleased. I had the black fettuccini with shrimp and chorizo and it was a nice combination of flavors, very satisfying and generous serving. My wide had the eggplant parmigianna and she said it was the best she ever had. Steak and branzino also went over well. Desserts and expresso to finish off were exactly on point although I will say that the olive oil and vanilla ice cream needed more oil. I love that dessert and was looking for a strong olive oil and salt presence with he sweet vanilla but this was a little too tepid with the olive oil in my view. Still delish! Highly recommended.

I wish I could put more than 5 stars for service, it was absolutely incredible. Rivaled by the food which was phenomenal.

Tarry Lodge is consistently outstanding because of their excellent service and reliable menu. I am never disappointed. Their salads are fantastic and the entree menu is somewhat repetitive but always tried and true. This a great stop in New Haven. Don’t miss it.

Great food. Eggplant’s presentation. Beautiful stacked round surrounded by a pool of pesto and a pool of tomato sauce. Offer a nice 3 course lunch or dinner at value price. only wish they would change that menu periodically.

The food was outstanding! The three course meal had great choices and was well priced. The pasta dishes were flavorful and just the right portion size. The only criticism I have is that the service was very slow. Not sure if it was just our server or the whole staff. We were kept waiting to order, for refills on drinks, and to order dessert. I had to flag down our server three times during our meal.

Loved celebrating our anniversary here last night. The food was amazing. The service was perfect. Attentive bug kept his distance. Very knowledgeable and willing to cater to allergies which is very helpful when you’re gluten free. Highly recommend

There were 3 people in my party. Service was prompt and courteous; my cavatelli and sausage was amazing and the wine matched perfectly with my meal. Everyone in my party had a tremendous meal and we certainly will go back in the future.

Our entire family loves this restaurant. Ages range from 80 to 2. That should tell you something. We have mostly come for late lunch if the 2 year old is on town. The food is first rate, creative, delicious top notch ingredients and preparation. It’s unique quality from our perspective is that it provides white linen service and ambience without the attitude. Their pastas and salads are divine. Haven’t yet tried the pizza. In a town that has no dearth if Italian food, this is right up there at the top. Enjoy!

Absolutely fantastic! The service was excellent. Anna was attentive and took pride in serving us. The food was delicious. We enjoyed prosciutto, burrata and warm crusty bread to start, Gorgonzola salads, each of us enjoyed our pasta dishes, fresh pasta was amazing! Desserts were rich and inventive...everything was top quality and wonderful. It made our college tour to Yale that much more enjoyable. The manager was amazing and checked on us throughout the evening. Great restaurant, we highly recommend it. We hope we get to return.

Tarry Lodge was just OK, I was expecting a lot more for the price and the reputation. My Eggplant Parmesan was very salty and the burrata with Heirloom tomato appetizer contains tomatoes that were NOT Heirloom tomatoes - they were regular tomatoes. If they were out of the Heirloom ones they could have just said they were substituting for regular tomatoes, but tomatoes they did use were not tasty anyway. The Cappuccino machine was not frothing properly and the Cappuccino they gave me was not great, but they still charged for it. I may give this place a try again, but only out of desperation. Our waitress was great.

We have eaten at this truly excellent restaurant many times. Only giving the food 4 stars today because three of our courses had very small imperfections - the egg in the Guanciale was not soft and runny; some of the pasta in the black Fettucine a little al dente; and the Eggplant Alla Parmigiana - not quite as hot as wanted. We suspect someone took their eye off the ball for a few minutes. Whilst none of these blemishes made anyone think about returning their food - it was perhaps the first time in about 5 years that the food has not been just about perfect.
Much as we tried to convince our server that we really weren't complaining, just making a few comments for future reference - she was mortified. To compensate, we were each given a glass of dessert wine and the table shared a delicious tiramisu. All - the hallmarks of true class.
Tarry Lodge, New Haven, retains its position as consistently the best restaurant in this area. The food, the ambiance, and the service continue to be impeccable and we will be back very soon.

My wife and I spent our anniversary and have had many special occasions here. The food is tremendous, the ambience is perfect, and the staff is extraordinary. Andrea is by far our favorite waitress and consistently goes above and beyond every time we are at Tarry Lodge. I could not recommend this restaurant highly enough.

We've loved Tarry Lodge from the start and if anything, it's improved over time. The three-course prix fixe lunch menu is a good value with an excellent (and huge!) salad, good pasta and terrific soft-serve olive-oil gelato. Quiet at lunch time and on-street parking seems to be easily available at that time.

I would recommend Tarry Lodge to a friend, if they were not looking for an intimate, quiet, romantic place. That said, a busy bistro-like atmosphere is more the type of recommendation I would make. I thought the food was very good, the service was good also.
