Three of the four people in my group ordered filet steaks. The steaks were all cooked to specification and delicious. The other dinner was the Ahi. This was also delicious and cooked perfect. The deserts were also yummy. This was our first time at Tarragon and will be back for sure.

I just went here for my anniversary. Overall this place is good with a few drawbacks. The ambience is warm and welcoming. Food better than average. Paella was tasty but appeared to be prepared with cheese or cream which was not how paella tasted in Spanish restaurants Ive dined at. Prices are fair. It seems most diners were there for the $20 early bird specials. I was not impressed with our server who got our salad order wrong on two items- not splitting the portions into two dishes and not keeping the dressing separate. No one recognized that we where there for our anniversary either which I presume the maitre d should have been able to see on the Open Tablel reservation.

It was our first time there. First impression was a reminder of "Joe's of San Rafael". It has a long curved walkway from the back door to the front door. The bar has ample seating and shows some class. We started with a "wedge" and it was great, the best we've had. The Caesar's salad was good as well especially with the added anchovies. We had lamb chops that were outrageously good and a scampi dish that was good but not a good the the lamb chops. The prices are very reasonable and our server (Amelia) was outstanding! We will be returning to Tarragon, hopefully often.

After reading positive reviews, decided to check this place out while waiting for our daughter to finish her 2 hour practice. Service was excellent but that was about it. Drinks were too tart for what they should've been. Wife's scampi and pasta was good albeit the pasta was a bit oily. However my seafood paella was extremely dry and frankly uneatble. Ended up transferring what meat incould find over to my wife's oily pasta just to satisfy a meal. Won't be going back and am recommending others try any one of the many, many other better places on the strip.

Their early bird dinner is the best bargain in town! For $20 a great salad, rack of lamb (all right it's just 3 ribs, but very meaty and perfectly prepared) and a yummy dessert. Their early bird wine is $4 a glass, so this is a wonderful weeknight dinner if you can handle eating early! Great atmosphere too.

We went early and they have a lovely early dinner special although that's not what we were looking for. Three courses all for about 20.00 - so very reasonable. The only negative was the wait staff was quite slow and we waited at least 20 min for our wine. The food was excellent however and the ambience is fine as well.
