Overall it was very good but they forgot the olives in the cocktails and forgot the butter with the bread. Our waiter was the best!
It was a lovely experience. It was my sisters birthday. She had a great time and enjoyed the ambiance and the food
It was just ok. Must have been an off day in the kitchen. I have order the same sandwich several times and was disappointed this time.
The outdoor dining is situated in a courtyard with lots of vines and flowers blooming. There were plenty of umbrellas and heaters as needed. The Desert Rose cocktail was a flavorful twist on a tequila based drink. I had the vegan lentil stew, which was hardy and flavorful. My husband had the grilled cheese sandwich. With room for dessert, he had the lemon cheesecake snd I had the chocolate snd peanut butter mousse cake. It was really a pie, which surprised me. It was good, just not what I expected. A favorite dining spot. We will be back
What a wonderful meal. The menu is new. Some old favorites like warm napa cabbage salad a or short rib are still there with stellar new entrées. I ordered the seafood pasta special on Sunday. Oh boy was I impressed and it was sooooo good. Light cream sauce salmon curls halibut curls and large de-tailed shrimp . Cheese on top. Portobello strips cooked just right mixed in....well now you know my taste. Wine by the glass, champagne and sparkly splits and a stellar cellar of bottles. I will be back soon. Sat in the upstairs patio bringing down the ambiance grade. Sit downstairs on the heated patio shielded from the wind for more ambience or outside the dining room. Yes I really like this restaurant. Family and dog friendly on the patio. Grest bar and indoor dining. Good parking. Easy to get to off 68 or Camino del Rey. Bill and Jacki
This is our third time at Tarpys. This time, for whatever reason, the food was quite poor. Meat was very dry, and not what we had come to expect. Maybe just an off night.
Tarpy’s road house never fails. I’ve been coming here for years. I was hesitant to come because of the current pandemic. All staff were wearing masks and tables were spaced out. Service was great and quick.
Tarpy's has never disappointed. We've been here many times for mother's day brunch and a handful of other special occasions.
Jose was a wonderful server. Considering it was a very busy holiday, we were very pleased with our meal and experience.
It was a great Mother's Day lunch. Our waitress wasnt the most pleasant - just didnt seem like she wanted to be working that day. She attempted to short change us when we were paying the bill. In her mistake she also stated her "frustration" in the minimal tip were we going to pay her. Once we explained that she didnt give us the proper change, she still was upset with her 18% tip. Kind of put a damper on an otherwise nice lunch.
We've been to Tarpy's several times and never been disappointed. The ambience is nice, area is beautiful, and just like being at someone's home. The service is always great, and food is fantastic. We can always get in, inside or out, and it's always a good time!
It all felt very rushed.
The table we were seated at was very uncharming.
I won’t return any time soon.
Great food and service! Highly recommended and worth coming back to.
Service was not what it was pre pandemic. Otherwise it was good
Very busy on a Mothers Day weekend but otherwise GREAT!
We love Tarpy's and go their quite often. We live an hour away so it's a nice treat. This past visit though we were not happy with our service. First off we put in our reservations a week early and requested an outdoor table in the main courtyard, which we didn't get. Instead we were put upstairs in a small corner that was dirty and had a cluster of flies to deal with. Our server was very slow and our drinks took over 25 min. to arrive, in fact our appetizer came out before our drinks were delivered. On a side note other tables in our area were having the same problem with drinks. Our food was delicious as usual, but we sure wish that we could have been seated in a nicer area and that we would have had the service we are used to getting at Tarpy's. Hopefully next time!
Was in town for the weekend so came to Tarpy's for an anniversary dinner. Bruschetta was on stale bread, we couldn't even eat it unfortunately. The server was kind enough to let us choose another app, so we went with the brussel sprouts -- these were also quite disappointing. They tasted as if they were microwaved :/ My fiance and I both went with salads for an entree which were very tasty though!
The vibe was nice and there was a lot of good seating options. Would not recommend for the food.
We were regulars over the past several years -but last few times -Terrible food
All was great. Short ribs out of this world. Service excellent.
Our server lorie is outstanding. Your manager Debbie is a gem.
Great food, amazing service and beautiful settings.
The service was terrible. Unlike our last visit, the restaurant was not crowed and the food was mediocre at best. I had a tasteless lentil stew. When I finally found the waiter and asked for salt and pepper, the containers were sticky from not being cleaned. Overall, a bad experience. Maybe that is why this restaurant was not crowded.
Good service good food too expensive however nice wine list barren rooms
We had a lovely lunch for my birthday. We each ordered a large salad. I added on 2 crab cakes on my beet , pear and arugula salad and my husband added salmon onto his butternut squash and kale salad.
Both were excellent and very filling with our additions. The apple crisp for dessert was really yummy. But what makes this place so special is the lovely outdoor patio!! We have been coming here for many years and will definitely return.
Friend’s wedding anniversary! It was quite busy during lunch hour, it took a bit longer than other times I’ve been there, but the company was great talking that it flew by!
We brought our dog and we were all made to feel welcome. Food and service was superior. Except for an occasional jet landing (which they have no control over) the ambiance was great. We'll definitely go again when we come back to Monterey.
Great ambiance, amazing menu and friendly staff! We were on a little vacation and found Tarpy’s by accident. We will definitely return when in the area! Also many incredible gluten free options!!
The quality of the food was fine, but I've had better, for less $$. We can say "Oh, but everything in CA is more expensive", but the quality needs to step up.
Service was slow and spotty. We have eaten at Tarpy's many times on the past, but not in the past year due to COVID restrictions - and it appears to have regressed in quality. It may also be due to the recent change in ownership. We had to ask for lemon for water three times before the waiter finally brought it. On a positive note, the food was tasty and the wine superb.
I am a regular at Tarpy's for a reason. They care about their customers and it shows. I go there for business lunches and personal meals. I always feel important to them. The food and services is consistently good and the ambiance is relaxing and beautiful.
Great service and food! Would go there again. Nice setting.
Once again we had a wonderful meal at Tarpy's. The guests we brought with us thought it was just the best! The waiter was efficient & attentive & also had a great personality. We will definitely be back soon.
Excellent food and ambience - I’m never disappointed when I dine here! Laurie always provides exceptional service - friendly, professional, and attentive - she is the best!
Great as always!! Only downer was the tent on patio. I much prefer dining in the open air either with the umbrellas or direct sun. All in all was a fantastic lunch.
Loved the salmon! Dog friendly patio. Nice setting. Great service.,
Service is a little slow but good is good and convenient location.
My girlfriend and I had an amazing anniversary dinner here, the food was delicious and the service was lovely. There was a lovely fountain on the grounds and ivy and vines everywhere. I would absolutely go back.
Amazing food.. excellent service..sat outside with nice floor heaters.. actually warmer than inside
We were seated right away. The service was leisurely but that’s exactly what we were looking for. We closed the restaurant and didn’t feel rushed. Would definitely go back.
Amazing experience, great food and happy to return indoors. Our server Pedro seemed to be learning but doing very well and was working hard to make sure everyone was taken care of at his tables. We really enjoyed all of our food, crab cakes are some of the best we have had! A must when we come. My husband always get the chili crusted chicken, a fav since our wedding day.
