It was restaurant week. We ordered a Pinot noir listed on the menu. They charged $7.00 more per bottle because we did not order off the restaurant week menu. I found this offensive. I ordered branzino. None left. I then ordered salmon. It was not very moist. Service was attentive. Guacamole was very good. Wine was delicious. Main courses were ordinary.

It was a nice venue to celebrate my daughter in laws birthday. In addition to 4 adults, we had an 8 year old and a 5 year old with us. T Bar was a good choice to handle both generations well. It was kid friendly and yet could accomodate the more sophisticated palate.

This is my third time at T-Bar in the past few weeks, although I've dined there so many times. I love the restaurant's ambiance and their delicious food. The wines are great as well as the desserts.
But the service has been poor every time. Many friends have had the same experience, sadly. If it weren't for the glorious food, I probably wouldn't return.
