If you are OK with the prices (~$150/person depending on how much you drink) this place does not disappoint. Good service and outstanding food. My wife and I had an excellent time.

Service could improve-was on top of us to take order and nearing closing out to switch from lunch to dinner. Dropped check and kept coming back for payment. Didn't approach table anytime in between...but food good and easy place to catch up with friends!

Two friends took me to TBar for a birthday celebration. They were lovely, gave us a nice table. We shared the pizza and the beet/endive salad, another had a burger with fries. The food here is consistently good.

Delighted by the food: everything from the bread basket to the extraordinary salmon ceviche to a delicious Irish salmon. Even the coffee was excellent. The strawberry shortcake dessert really stood out: Creative and unique! This gem is right in my neighborhood. I'll be back.

Went for Restaurant Week Lunch. Excellent meal, Salmon was very high quality cut with a nice job cooking (crisp outside, pink inside). Salad is handcrafted. I felt price was fair given app & dessert (a superb banana parfait) is included.

T-BAR knocked it out of the park for our restaurant week dinner. They honored our reservation time and sat us immediately at one of the best tables in the house. The waitstaff was friendly, warm, efficent and knowledgable
The portions were full size and came out in a timely manner. The wine was fab & resonably priced. The four of us went home happy. Thank you TBAR, kudos to the manager, owner and staff.

Food was very ordinary. Caesar salad was cut up pieces of romaine w/ a very few shavings of tasteless parmesan like cheese. We asked them to add shrimp. I think they took one shrimp and cut it into small pieces. Really?

I have been coming to tbar for 10 years. I love their grilled salmon on the tbar salad with sherry vinaigrette. Tony is terrific. He is very hospitable and hardworking.

Never had a bad experience here and we eat here almost monthly. I love the kale salad which has a spicy kick! My favorite is the salmon, well done. The porterhouse for 2 is a hit (and I love it too) with everyone in my family, including extended family.

My husband and I went on a “date night” after spending much of the week babysitting our grandkids. It was pretty and comfortable. There were many options on the menu. We shared the chopped Caesar salad as an appetizer. My husband had the Chicken Milanese and I had Roast Free Range Chicken. Everything was excellent! For dessert we shared the Strawberry Sundae. Yum... We are anxious to go back and try different menu items.
