Always an excellent time at T-Bar. The food is consistent, whether it’s the Rib Eye or the Chicken Milanese. Cooked to perfection with a helpful staff. It’s one of the restaurants that I always come back to time and time again

Waiter was excellent but hostess rushed dinner despite us arriving half hour early to an empty restaurant. Felt pushed out.

The food is always fantastic here, the service top notch and the ambience very nice. Covid-19 is taken very seriously, with social distancing, silverware sealed in plastic, temp checks, hand sanitizer and beautiful partitions between the tables. The bread is absolutely amazing, especially the rosemary one and the olive filled one. Love it here.

The food is amazing and the service was terrific. There was definitely more than 25% capacity in the restaurant which made us very nervous.

I took a friend for dinner for her birthday and we sat outside on a nice night. I noticed there were no heat lamps but fortunately we did not need them. Our waitress, Katie, was great. We shard a sushi appetizer and I had the Sea bass and my friend the Filet Mignon. both were prepared very well and delicious.
We shared a strawberry shortcake dessert which was a great ending to a wonderful meal.
Here is where I was a bit shocked. The prices were quite expensive (probably raised them due to Covid). I have eaten here many times before and I don't recall spending this much on dinner.
Since, it was for a birthday celebration I brushed it off but not sure it is a place to go for a "bite" to eat at these prices.

We dined at TBar on Sunday and they are doing an amazing job with this covid situation. Prewrapped silverware for each course. Service was wonderful and attentive. Hubby and I had a wonderful meal and I’m so glad Brussels sprouts are back! We sat inside and they have partitions between tables and windows open for ventilation. Cant wait to go back!

Way TOO COLD inside with windows open. I understand Covid concerns BUT not an enjoyable dinner. Guess we’ll wait til weather warms up or Covid is GONE.

The salad with poached shrimp was tasteless, Iceberg lettuce and the dressing had no taste.
The french fries were good.
A glass of wine was $19 and the cab was nothing special

The burger was too salty as I remembered the last time I ordered. I will stick with the rib eye which is always great and the fish dishes.

This restaurant was a perfect choice for restaurant week but would be too pricey for me otherwise. The noise level of the lunch crowd in the front room was high but fortunately we ate in the back room which was quite pleasant. The waitstaff were great and the food was delicious. Banana parfait was to die for!
