Tarry Lodge Port Chester Ratings and Reviews
If you are not a large party, that is more than 4 people don't waste your time or money going to this restaurant. While the food maybe good, the overall operation of this restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. The staff's entire focus is on larger parties. My wife and I were seated at a table for 2 that was along the wall on the way to the kitchen - so it was like eating dinner in the middle of Grand Central Station. When we complained to one of the managers all we received in return was a smile, a shrug of her shoulders and a "sorry about that" yet two other couples that were going to be seated behind us complained and were moved. Second, I tried to order the special for that evening - Pork Chop Milanese but was told they were out of it. How is that possible to be out of your special by 8:30pm on a Saturday night? Other tables were offered and given bread with their dinner - we were not so lucky... in fact I would have ordered a second drink, if I had been asked but once again not so lucky. We ordered bottle water as opposed to tap but when they went to refill my wife's glass they were not paying attention and poured tap water into it. They corrected their mistake by bringing a second bottle of water but charged me for it in the process. By the time the check came I was so disgusted and tired of the poor service I just want to get out this place rather than argue over the $6.00. When they delivered the food they just dropped it in front of you and walked away - no offer of any seasoning, i.e. ground pepper. It was like we were an afterthought. Do yourself a favor and go eat somewhere else in Port Chester - there are plenty of other places where the food is just as good and that provide real customer service even if you are just a party of 2.
There were plenty of empty tables on Saturday night. Greeting was friendly. Service was prompt. BUT THE FOOD WAS EXCEEDINGLY SALTY! My husband ordered “the special” pork chop Milanese - the breading was very salty. Pasta Bolognese greasy- We were disappointed
Bad first impression when we arrived - host was smug and a bit rude to people (not us) but that was my observation. The seater was nice though. Service went downhill from there - best word to describe them was “joyless” - all seemed distracted, rushed (yet painfully slow) and unhelpful. Ordered an anti pasta for a table of 5 adults and it was too small. It would have been helpful to have been told it would be too small. I literally got a tiny bite or two of things on the tray. Disappointing. Then it took forever to put in our actual order. The food was uninspired - even dessert was a total yawn.
First time and last time. We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation time and they seated us exactly at our time even though there were numerous tables that were free. I did not know who my waiter/ waitress was. Too many people waiting on our table. The waitress did not know if a side came with the dishes we wanted to order. The bread came 20 minutes after our appetizer. The food was way overpriced, I guess they need to pay for all the staff. Advice to Tarry Lodge, you do not need staff to just pour wine and bring a bread basket, one waiter/waitress is a enough.
This is a neighborhood restaurant for us and the quality of food never disappoints - it is always delicious! However, service can be better - during our last visit, drink order was forgotten, my friends champagne was adsolutely flat but what really put it over the top was branzino served on what literally was a small appetizer plate with potatoes piled on top. I did ask to filet the fish but did not expected to be thrown on what looked like a bread plate after. Who knows, maybe it was a busy night or the kitchen ran out of big plates, but when you charge $30 for a dish you should at least try to make it look appealing. A bit disappointing as I was very much looking forward a great experience I always expect from Batali's places.
Everything was superb except the table & the dining room where we sat, obviously it didn't help to have a reservation. The table was very small, we were spatially cramped up against the wall. In fact it actually felt as if we were in a hallway because to some extent we were. We were extremely physically uncomfortable ! The entire dining room where we were placed was loud & non-conducive to a quiet Sunday evening dinner eliminating any sense of ambiance. We will not return to the Port Chester location unless we can sit else where ! We will be checking out their other locations in Westport & New Haven.
The food is always great here but last night the service was not. Our drinks were delivered after we were halfway through our salads. Water refills were unheard of. The typical things they do we had to ask for (bread). Just disappointing for the place
I've been to TL a few times over the years and each time I get the sense that I should thank the restaurant for allowing me to dine there. It never seems to be their pleasure to serve me. The food is ok, the prices medium to high, the all-Italian wine list interesting but decreasing in selection/depth. It's not high on my recommendation list for diners looking for quality Italian in Southern Westchester, or even Port Chester, for that matter.
Staff is very accommodating, helpful and polite. The food is fabulous. High quality Italian comfort foods along with some sophisticated options. Menu works for vegetarians, meat eaters and seafood lovers. All prepared so the ingredient flavors shine. A bit pricey but worth it.
Our seats were upstairs and in busy thoroughfare to the kitchen, and it was hard to hear the waiter and sommelier. I liked our female sommelier and waiter very much.
My salad-Arugula/fig was delicious, but my entree eggplant was cold on the inside, so I took it home and warmed it up. My husbands pork chop special had way too much garlic on the outside crust, and too many onions on the salad but the pork chop was hot & nice moist on the inside. We shared brussel sprouts and they were not cooked, still hard, so we took those home too.
I have always liked Tarry Lodge and I have been at least 12-14 times, but this was the first time I wasn't pleased with my food. I suppose I ordered wrong this time.
This was our first time ar thus restaurant and we were thoroughly impressed. The service was excellent, the wine list was extensive and the food outstanding. It is a bit pricey but for special occasions well worth it. I would highly recommend an evening out here. There is an adjoining store called Tarry Market which specializes in many Italian imported foods. Stop by if you have time!
Our friend ordered the cornish game hen and it was not to her liking, the waiter replaced it with the duck. She was extremely pleased, they even brought out some beets while she waited they were fantastic. The wait staff and management were very gracious about the change in dish. Excellent restaurant, this was our second time there and can't wait to go back
They may have been short-staffed on the evening we were there. The waiter was great and personable but the service was verrrry slow and staff inattentive. Waited long periods between courses, to get water refills and to get the check. We've been a few times - prior times the food was more interesting, on this trip the food was a bit too salty. The bar could also be better stocked for cocktails. A Vesper martini in particular.
A crowded, lively local restaurant which almost always provides authentic, very good Italian food.
We've eaten here many times--once in a while the food is not as good as otherwise (chef's night off ?) For example, the branzino is a favorite preparation but this time it was a bit dry. The restaurant has parking facilities which is a great convenience over finding a metered spot on a surrounding street.
We recommend giving Tarry Lodge a try.
