We are regulars at Tarpys - always a good time
We received wonderful service. I believe his name was Andrew. He was really great! He was knowledgeable about all the food we asked about and was very helpful and friendly. He was respectful and professional. We sat outside and enjoyed the garden feeling. The guitar player/singer provided us with the perfect background. The menu has something for everyone’s taste. The sports tea added a nice touch to our meals. Can’t wait to go back.
Don’t allow to be seated by the room near the restroom. It’s not pleasant there.
Food and drinks were outstanding. Great ambiance sitting outside on a warm evening.
Excellent service. Food is a little heavy but perfect for splitting. Excellent berries pie !
The service was incredible. Our orders were prepared to perfection and our server had no problems memorizing our modifications to the menu items. They also provided a complimentary birthday dessert which was very sweet. There’s a reason Tarpys is a local favorite
Jen was really great!!!
My Wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we were so glad we decided on Tarpy's. The food was excellent! Our Server Sam was outstanding! We will definitely be back soon!
The artichoke was under cooked but had great flavor. My Husband had the lamb shank and I had the meatloaf for dinner. Both were great!
Food and service was very good. We made reservations and we were seated immediately.
Beautiful surroundings, landing air traffic is cool but noisy, average food
Excellent service and good and plentiful servings. We were quite satisfied with our dining experience.
Tarpy’s has great good! The onion rings are very thinly sliced—if you’re going to get any salad, highly recommend getting the onion rings (I used them as a delicious crunchy topping). The deviled eggs are amazing and the crab cakes also unique with their corn “salsa”—delicious! Solid wine list and drink list. Service was great!!!
Tarpy's is our go-to place for special occasions. We celebrated my Mother's 90th birthday and a visit from my brother and his wife from Florida. Of all the restaurants we took them to on their visit, Tarpy's was their favorite!
We came here for an anniversary dinner and ate outside. Casual elegant ambiance especially one it gets dark and the light are on. Cocktail and food were delicious. I cannot stress enough how kind and friendly the staff are.
Absolutely gorgeous setting and delicious food. Loved the calamari and the Cajun prawns especially.
We really enjoyed the outdoor dining. The patio is beautiful and everyone enjoyed their food. We shared a Bavarian pretzel and thought it and the cheese sauce were especially good. The airport is nearby and the planes were noisy when they went over.
Beautiful setting and great meal but what made the evening was our waitress, Marina. Fabulous customer service, personable and her rendition of happy birthday for 3 of us in a party of 7, celebrating 3 birthdays was amazing. The area went silent listening to her wonderful voice. She was amazing.
Excellent service and food. Robby , our waiter was wonderful and very attentive!
food was terrific! We had the tuna tacos and the crispy calamari and loved them both. We will definitely be back.
We were greeted and escorted when we arrived for our reservation time and taken by the hostess and placed on a nice table for four in a nice location in the indoor dining room and our wait staff did a great job tending to our dinner and drink orders and were very efficient during our dinner get together with our friends and made our dining experience very nice especially for our one guest from out of down who was visiting us a great first time experience for him at one of our favorite local restaurants here in Monterey.
Our "go to" restaurant for all occasions. Great service from Nick. He is the BEST. Food was wonderful. Tuna taco for appetizers. Half a rack of ribs with outstanding potato salad and coleslaw for me. Shrimp pasta for my wife. B52 Latte's and Peanut Butter Mousse cake for desert. All wonderful.
Excellent blackened salmon sandwich on ciabatta with very good sweet potato fries. Also the chocolate mousse cake with ice cream was delicious.
Superb service creative dining equals 5 star dining
Great food excellent service. A very enjoyable meal in every way.
I have to say we have eaten at Tarpys for at least 20 years. And not one have I had a bad thing to say. Service is always been top notch! Food has always been amazing.
We went on Sunday afternoon. Our server was gracious and so friendly. I’m not sure what management is doing in terms of table turn over but it felt very rushed. And we said we are not in a hurry. I could hear the other tables around also also commenting that they also felt rushed. The hostess were all walking around several times picking up empty plates even if others at the table were still dinning. It just felt really off and not at all how we have enjoyed Tarpys. I’m hoping this was a one off day.
Great outdoor patio seating with plenty of heat lamps. Great food, wonderful dinner.
Tarpy’s is our go to restaurant whenever we are in the vicinity of Monterey.
Tarpy’s has been one of my very favorite restaurants for many years! I like to sit outside when the weather is nice. It’s like being in Italy! There is a variety of great dishes to choose from. My only wish is that they served wild salmon. The sports ice tea is my choice but my friend enjoyed a glass of wine that was excellent. We shared the raspberry cobbler with ice cream! I am looking forward to returning again as soon as I’m able. Give it a try you’ll be glad you did.
Nice post golf lunch on the the patio. Tasty burgers, crab cakes and wine hit the spot...
Loved the salmon sandwich and the ambience of eating outside on this lovely patio. Though I live in Monterey I felt I was on vacation somewhere else. It was a lovely way to celebrate my birthday with 3 close friends.
Lovely restaurant but the noise level is very high. Afternoon lunch was over powered by loud Reggae music. We finally had to ask our waiter to please turn it down. We couldn’t hear each other speak.
Service was excellent. Food was mediocre. Our calamari appetizer was tough, my chili chicken was so tough and hard I couldn’t cut it but everyone else enjoyed their food.
Lovely restaurant with a beautiful patio. I plan to return and hope for a more tranquil experience
Celebrated my husband's birthday - he picked the restaurant and we had a lovely meal outside in the courtyard. Took our dogs and they were welcomed with a nice bowl of water. I highly recommend this restaurant for the quality food and service!
The fried chicken sandwich with the lettuce wedge is the best! Service was excellent.
Not the best restaurant in an airport flight path. Small aircraft landing immediately overhear every 2-3 minutes, plus mediocre food. Actually didn’t finish crab cakes b/c they were flavorless and uninspired. Cauliflower “steak” seemed like it could have been cooked more. Tuna tacos were a highlight.
Great service, beautiful atmosphere, food good but a little bland in flavor and small portions for appetizers.
Always love Tarpy’s! The great food, ambiance and service makes Tarpy’s our “go to” restaurant.
Thank you for taking care of my birthday party group. We had a wonderful time and look forward to coming again.
Beautiful day, good music, great table, good service, delicious food but some wasps joined us....
Hard for you all to remedy that...
