    The restaurant was a little difficult to find and parking even in mid week is difficult…however, the food ,the service, and the atmosphere inside was fantastic.

    The food was fresh, flavorful and delicious. Addison was the server in our section and she was thoughtful, sweet and delightful person. Thank you Addison for being so customer oriented and pleasant. The restaurant was peaceful and the atmosphere was clean and inviting. I will definitely return and recommend this place to others.

    My mother and I came in for Thanksgiving dinner. We had a 3p.m. reservation under the name Lauren Goodall. Everything was fine …..until we witnessed one of the waiters taking a customers water into the restroom. My mother and I were sitting at the table in clear view of the restroom and watched two waiters have a side conversation they stepped in the restroom talking and one of the waiters had two glass waters one in each hand while bending down around the toilet talking to the other waitress. The restroom door was wide open and I happened to be in clear view of it and saw the entire thing. He then stood up still with the two glasses of water in each hand and then brought them to the table behind us for the customers to drink.

    My mother and I sat there with our mouths wide opened and couldn’t believe that happened. That was absolutely disgusting and made us wonder what else goes on behind the scenes with people’s food and drinks that we didn’t get to see. It just shaped a bad impression for us and because of that we will NOT be returning to Tarrants to eat.

    We also didn’t leave a tip because of this and our waiter had a nerve to get upset. I couldn’t remember his name but he is the short caucasian gentlemen with long brown curly hair.

    I’m visiting from out of state and was looking for a dinner option that wasn’t too over the top or expensive. I got a BLT with fries and an order of mozzarella sticks. Both were fresh and hot (even taking into account my walk back to the hotel). My test of a good BLT is always how thick and how well cooked the bacon is and it was excellent on both counts! The fries were quite salty which was a plus for me, but might not be for everyone. My only slight quibble would be that while the bread was clearly toasted as requested, it probably could have stayed in the toaster a bit longer.

    Our server was extremely slow and seemed out of it. She wouldn’t wait at the table long enough for us to ask for what we needed. Had to ask for coffee 3x before she remembered to bring it out. Our food took over 45 minutes to come out. The food was fine, but nothing special. I don’t understand all these 5 star reviews. A 3 star review is generous.

    Initially walked in for a late lunch with a couple of my coworkers and there wasn’t an employee in sight. We waited a couple min and left to try and find something else close by. After quickly discovering that many of the restaurants didn’t open until 5p, we decided to go back and give it a try.

    Our waitress was nice…and the she-crab soup was exactly as she described – yummy and heartwarming! However the rest of the food we ordered just did not land well. Coworkers ordered Blackened chicken Cesar salad and the other MahiMahi (without bun)…both underseasoned and not really impressive. I ordered the salmon with a side of brown rice and creamed spinach. I will say I enjoyed the salmon and the cream sauce was great! However the creamed spinach, admittedly, was probably the worst I’ve ever had in my life. It looked and tasted like boiled, wet spinach with absolutely NO flavor. I don’t even think Popeye (the Sailor Man) would even eat it…very off putting.

    However again once the staff was present, they were friendly and gave us a nice salutation. Happy hour specials are good, but only at the bar. Not my first choice of restaurants, however maybe I’ll give it another try next time I’m visiting in town…

For the mail course we had the 3 cheese Ravioli and the jumbo shrimp…both were very tasty and decadent! Our waiter, Aiden, was very friendly, polite, amazing…just a great guy who knew the menu very well. WILL be back on our next visit to Richmond!

    Food, service and atmosphere were perfect here. A nice little pub with great wait staff, a good selection of cocktails and mocktails.

    We ordered the blueberry mint lemonade..
    Killer mocktail.
    We order mozzarella sticks, they were huge! So delicious great value and flavor.
    We also tried their Buffalo wings, and they were divine. Pretty standard bufallo wing but cooked perfectly.

    I wish I could remember our waitresses name but she never left us wanting anything or hunting her down. Fantastic experience.

    We will definitely go back.

    I don’t think we’ve had a bad vosot to Tarrants. We went for our Anniversary, and our server Ryan did an incredible job making our night special, giving recommendations, and looking out for us.

    The she crab soup and baked scallops were DELICIOUS.

    We got strategic and found a spot where the “loading zone” turns into normal parking at 6; otherwise, leave a buffer to find parking (sometimes you have more luck north of Broad.)

The waitress name was Kee Kee she greeted my guest & I with a bubbly friendly demeanor which made the time at the restaurant so welcoming” For the appetizer we ordered the crab cakes & for our main course we went with the chicken melt” Our food was delicious. The Chef really papered an awesome dish. Thank you Kee Kee along with the rest of the staff I’ll be back soon.

    Gorgeous place with a rich history, love that they kept so much original in the space but the menu is a huge let down. The quality of the food doesn’t match the prices at all. Not to mention, the entrees are strange. Check out the menu and you decide. We like it for drinks and apps at happy hour but we won’t be eating dinner there again. 3 tries and we are done. If the chef stepped it up a bit -we would be all over it. It’s one of the neatest looking restaurants in Richmond.

    I am so sorry that I am laid writing this. A month ago I had to go to Richmond for a doctor’s appointment. We decided that we were hungry and wanted to get lunch but we didn’t want to do like any of the fast food joints. We looked up restaurants close to us and this one popped up. I cannot express just how good the food is here. Our waitress was super friendly and was really good at suggesting a decent meal for us as well as a drink to go along with the meal. I cannot recommend this place high enough. Just an absolute wonderful experience. In the food was just beyond great. I cannot wait for my next trip to Richmond.

    Delicious! Perfect, enjoyable mid afternoon lunch. Great food, excellent service, immaculate restaurant. My colleague and I were visiting Richmond, staying at a nearby hotel. She and I were enjoying a beautiful afternoon walk down historic Broad Street when we discovered Tarrant’s. It looked like a fun place and the menu posted outside was intriguing, so we decided to have lunch. Luckily, it was an excellent decision! Tarrant’s is located directly on beautiful, tree lined Broad Street in a beautiful Richmond neighborhood. The restaurant space itself is the old Tarrant’s Drug Company. Immediately upon entering the dining area you can see some really cool historic signs and fixtures from the drug store/pharmacy days. My colleague and I were Immediately seated and received prompt, friendly service from our excellent server. The menu includes a huge, diverse selection of possibilities and libations. Burgers, wraps, salads, desserts and entrée meals, plus much more is available. If you’re in the mood for an adult libation, Tarrant’s has a full service bar. There are so many interesting items on the menu, my colleague and I had a really difficult time making a decision on what to order. After much debate, I ordered the Cheeseburger and fries( yummy burger!!) My colleague had the Buffalo chicken wrap (my second choice) and she loved it! Fortunately, she allowed me to try her wrap and, I totally agree, it was excellent! Most certainly, on my next visit, I will order the wrap!! My third choice was the fried green tomato sandwich, which was very intriguing. At some point, on a future visit, I plan on trying the fried green tomatoes sandwich, too. If you happen to find yourself near Tarrant’s, you should really stop in and treat yourself. With the large menu, there is most certainly something for everyone to enjoy. Tarrant’s provides a very pleasant, relaxing, low-key atmosphere with excellent service!!

    TLDR: Don’t go here. Overpriced.

    Ordered the She Crab soup, which despite being very good it was VERY rich and only recommend you getting a cup split between 2 people.

    Chicken pot pie: 0/10 – purely cheese, way too creamy, not enough chicken, couldn’t even finish the dish the only good part was the crust

    Seafood Combo: 0/10 – Too much seafood paired together, paired with “brown” rice which basically is tasteless and over seasoned broccoli.

    Went to Tarrants yesterday evening to dine and they were closed. No explanation from the staff inside.

  89. Shannon Hyatt 2023/05

    I am so over Tarrants. The last time we went, I told them I was allergic to milk and they brought out tacos with cheese at the bottom so I didn’t catch it until I took a bite. Made the mistake of giving them a second chance. Today I ordered an HOUR in advance and they said it would be ready at noon. I told them I didn’t need it until 1230 but needed to pick up right then. Sent my husband at 12:20 and didn’t walk out with food until 12:42, a takeout order consisting of salad and french toast with no utensils provided and they forgot my drink. And not one person is hustling. All a lot of “we are SO busy” while they stroll down the aisle heads bobbing. You could at least pretend to move quickly when people are frustrated by your incompetence.

    Lovely little place, liked the ambiance, decor, location and service was great. The food however while not bad was very underwhelming. My mashed potatoes were minimal, bland and seemed liked boxed. String beans were overcooked but tasty. The seafood baked dish was rich, heavy, thick, and sloppy looking. The crab cake…not necessarily “lumped” as advertised. I forgot to take pics. Flavor was decent. The creamed spinach was very tasty. This won’t be a go to place but I may give it another chance because I like the vibe.

    Beautiful place but the food is flavorless. We have the crab/Spinach dip, which was fantastic. But the calamari was served with a subpar dip, and the breading was bland. The find tacos were sad, to say the least. The fist was overcooked and unseasoned. The sauce was water and ran right off the taco. Maybe if they had shredded the fish, then out the sauce on the fish it would’ve helped the dryness and flavor. The chicken melt had the same sauce as the calamari….which was weird. Fries were unseasoned, and there are none at the table to save them with. For the hype the atmosphere gives and the overall quality of the resurant. The food was very disappointing, and it makes sense now why they need the bar.

    Edit:

    Overall, service was great but food was absolutely disgusting and it all tasted microwaved except the dip.

    I consider this a pub-style restaurant in what looks like a historic building. The service was great. The food was delicious. I had the chicken piccata. My in-laws shared the meatloaf. We all enjoyed our food. I was a little hesitant to eat here because of some of the reviews but I didn’t mention it to my in-laws. My husband is in the hospital here due to a motor vehicle accident so I’m getting a taste of Richmond. Give it a try. Hopefully, you enjoy it as much as we did.

    Ordered lunch for the first time with a coworker, I ordered the health bowl. My first issue was the one small container of dressing for the size salad I had. My second issue was the amount of wilted chunks of lettuce that was in my salad. For a place of your stature, food needs to be better prepared. The raspberry vinaigrette didn’t have any flavor, I had to add salt and pepper to give the salad some taste

Extensive menu- they also have brunch until 3pm on Saturday and Sunday even though you can’t find that menu online. Ot was very easy to make a same day reservation online. Our food was good but it did take a long time for it to come out- definitely not quick. It can take a few minutes to find a parking spot nearby. We look forward to coming back here, especially to bring out of town guests!

    A little disappointed in this place. My husband has a really bad allergy to eggs. We asked our server twice regarding something he was ordering if there were any eggs in his sandwich (sauces) she confirmed twice there wasn’t. He took one bite and instantly knew. I then asked the manager if there were eggs and he did confirmed that there is eggs in both sauces they use. They didn’t seem too concerned about his allergy what do ever even after I explained his allergy..

    My friend and I were in town for a week and choose to dine at Tarrant’s for lunch one weekday. Simply put it was superb. I won’t go into what we had; rather cite the observation that all those around us seemed to be totally enjoying their meal. Our waiter was appropriately attentive but offered some personal comments about why he chose to work at Tarrant’s. Bottom line is that we will be back next time in Richmond and have already recommended it to 2 of our sisters who live in Richmond.

    Ok, so random Google search for dinner turned into an amazing dining experience! I come to Richmond once per month for work but dine alone which sucks but it forces me to find new places to eat. Katherine and Faizel were absolutely amazing! Initially, Katherine answered all of my questions and broke a glass while answering. She handled the whole situation just as I would have and I appreciate her openness and realness of being herself during a time of stress. She very clearly articulated the menu and helped me decide and order my dinner. I automatically felt connected to her and welcome. Katherine was on her game and a very open conversationalist when connecting with not just me but also other patrons and employees. I even witnessed her assisting a young new girl who had never opened a bottle of wine. She was patient and caring when explaining and training and even followed up to check in with her.

    The food was VERY good! Everything from the delicious salad to the yummy garlic bread and the mahi mahi with pineapple glaze was SO SO good! They even had Cigar City on tap!!

    Faizel was just as amazing! He instantly struck up a conversation and we very quickly had open dialogue on a wide range of topics which actually made me want to stay longer. He was easy to talk to and seemed genuinely interested in talking to me and others at the bar. He was also helpful to his peers and very quick with making drinks. Overall, a wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend this place to my family and friends! See you again soon!

    The food was solid, but I had a hard time justifying the price. Close to $30 for a bowl of penne with sauce and shrimp seemed too steep for a basic dish. I preferred the pasta I had at Brenner Pass which seemed fresher, more elevated, and yet cost less. I also would have preferred another type of pasta to penne alongside the shrimp. Tarrant’s seems a good place for some reliable comfort food charming vintage interior and quick service.

    We were very underwhelmed by the food. Our sandwich was dry and kind of pathetic. What really ruined our lunch was some clown on video chat the entire time. I shouldn’t have to ask the staff to ask her to lower the volume, but I did. Didn’t help. I wish restaurants cared about their customers and their experience.

    We were a party of 6 for a friend’s birthday dinner on a Saturday night. It was a very busy night which could explain some of the issues we had. We were seated 40 minutes after arriving on time for our reservation. That’s ok, we get that Saturday night is busy and we ended up at a nice table. Salads were very good, but the she crab soup ordered by 2 in our party was inedible. It tasted burned and watery at the same time. All our entrees were excellent and we should have stopped there. We ordered one dessert for the birthday girl and it took 35 min to arrive. Our server was super nice and helpful but the kitchen just didn’t have it together that night.

    What a wonderful restaurant! The staff are really friendly and great at their jobs. The Monte Cristo sandwich is phenomenal! A soft and delicious sandwich with their berry jam to dip it in was very flavorful. I would easily come back again!

  128. Holly Coleman 2023/02

    Let me just tell you the food was so freaking awesome & the servers were so awesome too. I got the spinach and crab dip it was superb! Next the grill cheese with fried green tomatoes was freaking amazing !! I mean if heaven had a taste this would be it it looks and taste so good I forgot to take a photo lol! This place can be a little pricey but it’s definitely worth the money oh & also the drinks are good.

    They have a very diverse menu with lots of options. We had the Sailor (very large sandwich) with a nice looking salad and a Reuben subbed turkey with the she crab soup (creamy and savory). All very delicious. We ended with the triple berry cobbler, which had three scoops of vanilla ice cream and was so large we took it home. Will go here again. The worst park was finding parking, but there are options.

    It was ok. It’s a nice atmosphere and easy to have a relaxed conversation. The wait staff was also friendly and welcoming.

    The was just ok. I had the fried green tomatoes appetizer and it was breaded and deep fried – i guess i expected the southern version. I also had their special for chicken pot pie, which i found disappointing. I wanted a light and flakey crust but it was more of a regular pie crust. The filling was also ok. It was a small portion and I had hoped for a more creamy filling with chunks of chicken and veg.

    I would go back for a drink and appetizer. Maybe i just didn’t order the right dishes.

    2nd time going in 6 months and both times were horrible. Not my choice to go back 2nd time. My party sent either half or their whole entre back. Food was disguisting. My Blackened Salmon was cooked frozen and only pepper as the seasoning. It was a dry block of meat. Same for the chicken. Ceasar salad dressing was 95% mayo. Crab cake is minced like tuna salad and is a dark grey color. You don’t get bread until AFTER you order. Took 45 mins for me to get a lemonade while all of the acoholic drinks came out in no time. The delux grilled cheese only had 1 slice of cheese and 4 tomatoes. My friends food looked so nasty that she didn’t want it and senrlt ir back. None of the entres looked apetizing. Just horrible.

    I ordered a to go blackened chicken caesar salad. It was definitely not worth it at all. The total came to about 19 dollars. Add a tip to that and you got yourself an extremely over priced salad. The amount you get doesn’t justify the cost. They don’t even give you a nice amount of chicken. There had to be maybe 4 or 5 ounces of chopped up chicken. I do like Tarrant’s Cafe, but won’t ever be ordering a salad again. Next time I think I’m going to order a sandwich.

    The she crab soup lacked “CRAB”. It was also salty. The fried oysters were soggy. Obviously they didn’t soak the grease. Huge disappointment. Service was mediocre. Definitely not worth $30.00. Never again. Exactly what happens when you order seafood from a place like this. I’m sure they have great salads and sandwiches. Side note……Fast Food place….. Captain Ds has large delicately delicious fried oysters when in season.

    The food: Pork Lumpia Rolls, Grilled Mahi Sandwich, and a Rachel (grilled pastrami, Swiss cheese, coleslaw, thousand island dressing on rye bread) – the lumpia was good, but tasted store bought?, the Mahi was cooked perfectly, but unfortunately didn’t taste like it was seasoned, & the Rachel, it was also very good, but be warned there was something in there that gave it a spicy kick that I or you won’t be expecting. Staff: Lillian L – she was great!!! The ambiance was just awesome! It had that original pub feeling. Nice menu selection too.

I was so stuffed from award winning she crab soup followed by a perfectly cooked filet that I declined dessert. My husband ordered the cheesecake and they brought out this house-made wonder that there are literally no words for. Every cliche in the world couldn’t do justice to the flavor and texture of the cheesecake. It made me want to slap everybody’s mama! We cannot wait to come back!!! Thank you Jacob for taking such great care of us!!!

    A nice bar and restaurant that has relics of old from the drug store it used to be! Never really crowded or busy which is nice. Food is good, but is a little bland to my taste. Also drinks will come in inconsistent sizes which was a bit of a bummer but nonetheless still good! Love that they have classic Jewish sandwiches and diner breakfasts though. If Perly’s is ever too crowded for your liking Tarrant’s is a good substitute!

    I would not give Tarrant’s a star for this service. However, I had to in order to post… Their partnership with Door Dash is a horrible one when it comes to getting people their food in a timely manner. Their excuse each time you call is “we don’t have drivers.” Then don’t send your food out with a driver knowing it will just sit in their car. Cold pizza that sweat through the box and missing the pepperoni on half the pizza. IT WAS COLD. Take a look at the pics and notice the cold pizza that sweat through the box and missing toppings. Did they not think I wouldn’t notice?

    went for a late lunch and ordered two entrees and a cup of she crab soup, the soup was lovely as well as the service and decor. our server was an absolute sweetheart. unfortunately the entrees were awful. the rockfish portion was very small for the $32 price tag, and while the presentation looked beautiful the first bite was a wild ride of disappointment and anguish. there was absolutely no understanding of flavor composition, just random components all clashing together into one big unappetizing clusterf*ck that neither of us could finish. its not often you have a genuinely terrible meal in richmond, but never impossible.

    Way too expensive for what you get. $79 for chicken and waffles, chicken breast with lemon sauce, and two soft drinks. Portions are small. Food is average. Atmosphere is good, but not outstanding. Service and attentiveness was great, probably its only saving grace.

    Meh. Waitstaff were delightful and bussers were on point, but food was mismatched with the sides and average at best. If you are going to offer mismatched sides to something like chicken picatta (i.e. brown rice and California veggies) at least do them well. My husband’s mashed potatoes were watery and tasted like they came from a box. My brown rice was practically mush, and carrots do not go well with caper lemon creme sauce. The chicken was also mushy. It was a swing and a miss. But maybe I had my standards set too high…

    Alright so I took the girlfriend here to meet the parents. The staff was very kind, no fault there. But every other aspect was bad in ways I never even considered. To start they gave us 4 menus, 2 of them had different prices than the other 2. Then between our 4 orders they did not have about 30% of the things we asked for, thats alright, but much of it was told to us after returning from the kitchen. Our drinks were late or forgotten, and overall the whole place was just expensive. All this could be saved by incredible food, but that was not the case.

    Reservations were made for a post Monacan HS dinner.. thank you for taken us in early. The atmosphere was great and staff super friendly. My problem was with my meal. The eggplant Parmesan was tasteless and the 3 pieces of eggplant were so tough that I could not cut them with a fork. The waitress kindly took it away. I ordered a quick appetizer…chicken quesadilla this had good flavor , but I left 1/2 the tortilla on my plate because it didn’t have any chicken or cheese on it… it was just dry tortilla. It also took me asking 5 times for drink refill to several different waitresses.

  191. Morgana Evenstar 2022/08

    Cleanliness was middling.

    Service was really good.

    Unfortunately, I do not drop $30 for a steak with the mess I was served in mind. It was not medium rare so much as raw inside and charred (not seared, charred) outside. Additionally it was not seasoned. For what is being charged for the food, the quality of ingredient is not the only consideration. Improper cooking absolutely ruins food, and it takes a lot of improper for a nice cut to taste like an unseasoned skillet.

    Crab soup was okay, veggies and mashed potatoes not so much.

    Overall extremely disappointing.

    Stayed in Richmond overnight before heading back to the Northeast, after checking into the Hotel came upon Tarrant’s, for dinner. Their appetizers and side salads are great before getting your entree. Not trying to be hyperbolic, but their cheeseburger with bacon was one of the best I’ve ever had.

    The staff/waitress was also excellent. Fast, friendly service even if it’s your first time in Richmond. Loved the area, lots of young people that have a upbeat attitude towards people they meet. Would absolutely come again if I’m ever back in the area.

    I feel like I got ripped off ordering the lunch special. Help me do the math. The regular menu taco comes with two tacos for $14 and lunch special has one taco and I chose a cup of she crab soup but it’s extra which is the same price if you order from regular menu. So I spent $2 less to have one less taco. They could have tell me that there’s only one taco in the lunch special, the special is that it’s basically more expensive.

    The taco is not big at all kinda blend there’s a little sauce in the bottom but didn’t really bring out any flavor. The soup is mediocre, very thick and some cooking wine taste but really lack of crab flavor and I can’t even tell there’s any crab meat.

    We stopped by for their Thanksgiving dinner service and it was excellent. Chelsea took great care of us. Even though the resteraunt was at capacity service was quick and friendly. The food and cocktails were delicious and we are so happy we made this our dinner choice that evening. We will definitely have to come back and try their normal menu.

    I was extremely disappointed with my visit to this restaurant. The menu on open table is wrong – I chose this place specifically for the Sangria drink options, and come to find out – there is no such thing. I showed them what they had uploaded – and was not accommodated.

    The service was extremely slow, and subpar to say the least. The food was mediocre and priced appropriately. The drinks were okay. Overall just not a good experience and left feeling very annoyed and frustrated. Will not be back.

    Didn’t feel welcomed by who I think was the manager. I’m guessing she was manager because of the red blouse!! She asked if she could help me, Like I was looking for something!! Uuummm….can I sit??? I asked her!!! Oh sure she replied!!! REALLY!!! Other than that , the food is really good and my waiter was awesome! To the manager: treat everyone the same never assume or judge!!

    Staying downtown, walking around and spotted this place. Nice interior, immediately greeted and sat a booth. Waitress was very friendly. Had hummus, delicious. Not just a plate of hummus, but olives, tomato, celery, carrots, crackers, peppers, and pita. Also tried a cup of Crab soup, fantastic, and the Health bowl salad. All delicious. The She Crab soup is as advertised.. award winning. The garlic bread is exceptional. The plate The bread comes on had olive oil and garlic on it. Fantastic place.

    A pretty good place to go to for brunch! I enjoyed the vintage decor and old paintings, and our waitress was very nice. Our food did take very long to come out, but they were apologetic about that.

    We ordered the Belgian Waffles, Corned Beef Hash, and Eggs Benedict. The Belgian Waffles were delicious, I loved them! The Corned Beef Hash and Eggs Benedict were both just okay. Regarding the cocktails: the Peach Bellini was good, but the Mimosa was great. So in summary, the food was good but not outstanding.

    By the way, I was sharing the Belgian Waffles with someone else so the waitress split it on two different plates, so the dish is actually bigger than what you see in the picture.

    First time in last night. Joined by three friends. We arrived a bit early so hung outside for a few. The service was great, the food delish and the space is spectacular. A must do for anyone in Richmond. We all did different dishes, pasta, scallops and chicken pot pie. All four were large portion, cocktails were great and even desert was superb.

  222. Cris Foster 2022/05

    A great overall experience! They were able to accommodate our party of 7 right away at 5pm on a Tues evening. Appetizers were a little small, but were delicious! Most of our party ordered sandwiches which are reasonably priced ($15 or so which includes a side) and we were all very satisfied. A couple of us ordered a drink at the bar as well, and the bartender there was great! Overall, great service, great food, and reasonably priced.

  223. Barry Judkins 2022/05

    Good to see Tarrant’s back after Covid. Same great atmosphere, great food, and wonderful service! Had a sailor sandwich for lunch; one of the best I’ve had recently. The slaw was a bit “saucy” for me but had good flavor. All in all, great place right on Broad Street, downtown Richmond.
    Another great lunch! Tried the ‘Rachel’ with a side salad and onion straws (YUM)!
    Check ✔️ them out! Enjoy!

    It was expensive but just ok. The bread was really good but the other food we had was ok, nothing great and service was spotty. We won’t go back because paying a lot for ok food and just ok service isn’t our idea of a good dinner.
    I had the blackened salmon that had a little seasoning but it was not how blackened is meant to be, not spicy and flavorful at all. We got the fried green tomatoes and they too had no flavoring. We took most of those home and I doctored them. They were much better with some seasoning. My partner got the rockfish and he says it was just ok. He also got the creamed spinach and didn’t like it at all. The food all looked so pretty when served but was disappointing in the tasting. It was all edible but cost more then it was worth. 😔

    OMG…this place was AWESOME!! We ate at an off time of 3:00 due to visiting the area so the restaurant was pretty empty. I loved that and the quietness of it. Our waitress, Michelle, was FANTASTIC! She was friendly, personable, fun, funny, and especially helpful with my hangover. She got me separate bread just in case their garlic bread was going to upset my stomach. I definitely recommend the bread…even the garlic because it was delicious. She brought me a carafe of water to drink. She suggested food for us that all of us loved! My husband had the small meat lovers pizza and it was so good, he ate the whole thing after not planning on it. Our daughter had the grilled cheese, which she loved (she is picky) and I had the steak n cheese. It melted in my mouth! The onion straws were delicious as were the fries. We started with mozzarella sticks and calamari. Lots of food for great, great prices. I was still feeling a little queasy, so with such kindness, Michelle, on her own asked the bartenders if there was anything to help me. She got me a tonic water with bitters, as that is what he recommended. Although, I couldn’t finish it, and didn’t think it really helped BUT it did. 30 minutes later, I felt awesome and was able to do a shot with my daughter and her friends to celebrate my 50th Birthday!! We cannot wait to go back and if you go, please ask for Michelle! The managers were very kind as well. Love, love, love this restaurant and am so glad we found it! Thank you for your awesome service!!!

    This has become our favorite place in Richmond. We were celebrating a family member’s birthday today, party of 8, and Courtney was our server. I can’t say enough about how wonderful she was. So attentive to our every detail, quick to respond for us, and we could tell she was always smiling, even though she was masked.

    After we ordered, she delivered 2 plates, one with garlic bread, and the 2nd one with mini cinnamon rolls. They were both good, but the rolls were so light and fluffy, with just enough frosting drizzled on them.

    We ordered a variety of salads and sandwiches. I got the cheese grits plate with 2 fried eggs, sausage, bacon, and gravy. It was outstanding!

    We’ll certainly be returning here in the future.

    It’s been quite awhile since I last visited. Chicken and Waffles was always a safe and solid choice from the menu. This time, I have to say I was disappointed when the plate landed in front of me and saw chicken tenders in place of bone-in fried chicken thigh. Had I known, I’d have gone to Capitol Waffle Shop and paid half the price for the same product.

  256. James Blanton 2022/02

    I’ve been here before and enjoyed it so I’m incredibly disappointed in my recent experience. The food was good and the waitress was delightful, but it took half an hour for me to get my first cocktail (they didn’t have the right ingredients and instead of telling the waitress or anyone they just…didn’t make the drink). Our pre dinner bread came out after we’d both finished our entrees. I ordered a beer later and it came to me flat and warm, and my medium rare steak came out mostly gray. Maybe they need a new manager or better bartenders, but this was a very bad experience. The restaurant was barely half full as well. Will not be back

One drink had a large cube, the second, identical drink had tiny cubes. We were checked on once. It took 1 hour and 20 minutes to get our food. The rockfish was delicious. The pizza was decent. The chicken sandwich was great, but the fries were ice cold. We were going to see a play, so there was no time to send them back. I will not be returning.

    I have been a Tarrants Cafe customer for over 10 years and must admit that today was my least favorite visit. Took my Dad there for his 90th birthday lunch ( 30+ year tradition we’ve shared at various eateries around Richmond). Sadly, Tarrants failed to live up to the hype I have come to expect (even with open booths in the front, the bartender seated our party of two in the back next to a noisy group of 6 or 7 people – we requested to move; the waiter was slow and inattentive, our appetizer was cold and undercooked…and a few more issues pertaining to service).

    I won’t say more because it won’t change anything and my dad walked out full and happy. He’s not as expectant as I am when it comes to good service and high prices.

    Nevertheless, I left a nice tip because the waiter did a couple of things to make up for his lack of wait skills. Yes, I will return but, I’ll stick with Tarrants on Three Chopt…better service and the food is served hot.

    Ordered fried green tomatoes for appetizer, they were great! Had the stuffed tilapia for entree and she crab soup (soup was better than some in MD). Everything was delicious. Highly recommend.

    My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary and absolutely loved it! The fresh garlic bread was amazing and his Manicotti was delicious! We will definitely be back.

    Literally cleans their kitchen or entire restaurant at midnight, its at least 60 decibels and sounds like a car backfiring repeatedly. Seriously makes it so hard even a narcoleptic cant sleep

    Get an electric power washer if youre honna be an inconsiderate business owner? They are significantly quieter, but its fine if you dont care about the people who live near your trashstablishment

    I had a friend in here last night, February 6th, and he said Michael Keaton happened to be there. I was told he asked for a Margherita pizza with artichoke hearts, and got parsley, instead of basil, AND ANCHOVIES INSTEAD OF ARTICHOKE. My friend said he was cool about the situation but overheard him saying the employees are so Incompetent that they can’t even read their own tickets. I felt embarrassed for my friend to be there as a guest, let alone be a server or other employee at that location. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard horror stories from this location.

  285. Donna Byrd 2021/10

    We enjoyed everything we ordered. The pizza is huge and my teenager son could not finish his calzone. The gentleman at the take out window was very polite and accommodating. We have already recommended Tarrant’s to some friends. We will definitely come back !!!

    Went for happy hour. Drinks and service were great. Very cool atmosphere. Tried the Hot Brown. It barely had any turkey in it, (I actually searched for the turkey and found a couple of very thin, very small slices). So for a pile of mashed potatoes and fried onions, it wasn’t a good deal. We watched the servers prepare some desserts that looked pretty awesome.

    We were a large group for a birthday party. A couple of guests who came often in the past seemed dissatisfied but I thought the food was good and the atmosphere decent. The service was a little slow but after all there were 10 of us. I’d say 3 and a half stars.

  293. Amber G 2021/09

    A shame. What has happened? Out of a party of six, only one enjoyed their dinner which was a sandwich. Appetizer, crab cakes, was great. The broccoli as a side was also good. Everything else was bland. I paid 30 dollars for a bottle of wine I found at a grocery store for 10 bucks. And to top it off, our waitress wasn’t interested in her job at all. Snide comments and sighing. A real eye roll for no reason! This birthday dinner is going down in the books. 2 stars for the crab cakes and broccoli.

    The Linden Row Inn staff where we were staying recommended Tarrant’s Cafe for an early dinner yesterday afternoon and we’re very pleased we took their suggestion. We were greeted immediately after walking in by the friendly bartender who quickly seated us. Candace was our server and was awesome. She was attentive but not intrusive and her affable demeanor made us feel welcome and comfortable. Our meals were outstanding starting with the incredible garlic bread and the flourless chocolate cake was the perfect ending. We will come back to Tarrant’s when in the area. Thanks to Candace for making our visit special and to the Tarrant’s Cafe kitchen for the exceptional meal.

  299. Patrick Irby 2021/08

    One meal wrong..asked for a side of ranch dressing, never got it. Asked twice for a beer. A bit pricey

  300. Patricia Ballinger 2021/08

    We always go to lunch at Tarrant’s downtown before we go to a play at the November Theater. Food and service top notch and the wait staff likes for you to tell them you are going to the theater so they can make sure your service is timely to keep you on tract for the rising curtain.

  301. Gayle Turner 2021/08

    My wife and I are big fans of this restaurant because the kitchen regularly works with us to deal with her allergies. This last visit wasn’t the best we’ve ever had. The waitress had a bit of an attitude having to deal with our allergy issues. But when she finally consented to go back to the kitchen and talk to them everything was straightened out. We will go back again. Also it’s only a half a block from my parking place downtown so it’s easy to get to. That’s really a moot point cuz they do have valet parking. Check it out it’s worth the trip

  302. VF VB 2021/08

    I used to really like tarrants, I’m not sure what happened. The food is really way too expensive for the quality to be so poor. At least I learned my lesson.

  303. S. N 2021/08

    Celebrating a birthday weekend in Richmond and made an 11:30am reservation. Arrived to the restaurant and it was closed. We then had to scramble to find another restaurant (not easy on a Saturday during COVID without a reservation) and we’re now late for the rest of the days activities and celebrations. If you’re going to operate a business during COVID, you need to be extra vigilant with your online accuracy. If you’re closed you need to close across all digital platforms and not allow reservations. Be warned, having a reservation here can’t be trusted. Find another location that’s a bit more professionally run – at least for now.

  304. Cecily Hickman 2021/08

    My experience was great. I had a reservation of 14. They had the table prepared when my party arrived (you do have to wait for @least 1/2 your party). The Manager took care of us from taking the beverage orders, too serving our meal. There was a mishap with one person’s meal and she quickly rectified the situation. The Sunday Brunch was Amazing & I would recommend you try it out.

    Had a chicken parm sandwich from there a few days ago. Chicken was rancid and smelled like ammonia. I didn’t get sick thank god, but that’s just really unacceptable. If you care about food quality and don’t like getting sick then avoid this place.

    I’m adding to this review because I came back down to Richmond a couple of weeks later and came out here again. So my server, Hannah, remembered my exact order including my drink (a lemonade) exactly. That was too much! She lights this place up.

  327. Bobby Lyon 2021/06

    This is a charming restaurant that was at one time a pharmacy. The interior is such that you may feel like you’re visiting during an earlier decade. The long and exquisitely stocked bar greets you at the door. The dark wooden walls are accentuated by stunning crystal wall sconces and lightened by the old southern crystal chandeliers.
    The is food is exquisite. I started out with an appetizer of she crab soup that is, at the least, as good as any that I’ve ever had. My entrée was stuffed cannelloni which was delightful. I tasted the lump crab cakes and will have them on my next visit.

    We have been to Tarrant’s several times and love the she crab soup. We were really looking forward to it. When we arrived we were sat next to a very large group. The server hadn’t even begun to take their order. The restaurant was basically empty so I’m not sure of the logic. Another server had to pick up our table. We saw some crab dips come out of the kitchen and those looked delicious. We ordered the crab dip, a cup and bowl of she crab soup, and a pastrami sandwich. The crab dip was over cooked and the cheese was burned on the sides and even on the bottom of the Bowl. There was a pool of grease on top. We asked for extra pita because it wasn’t enough. They didn’t tell us there was a $2 upcharge. Normally they just give it to us. We couldn’t taste any crab in the dip. Then we got our soup. It was luke warm and I didn’t see or taste any crab. It didn’t taste like the she crab soup we’ve come to know and love. The pastrami sandwich was very greasy and the fries were over cooked. Our server was nice, but she charged us for two bowls of soup. We were in a rush so we just paid for it. It was very disappointing. Our son went out with his friends so we had a date night. Unfortunately the food and experience wasn’t great.

    Well this is a special restaurant to visit! We were in from other places for a wedding in early October. Our hosts arranged a early Sunday afternoon brunch at Tarrant’s Cafe. They bring a basket of small warm cinnamon rolls to each table, very yummy! It is a popular venue, many folks who looked like regulars there. Their menus was robust across all there meals. They close for month minutes before dinner. Their full bar was well stocked. Our entree items were well prepared and tasty. Their prices moderate. A visit to this local favorite is a must!

    The food was awful! The crab cake was ok, but my sides were ice cold. In addition to my meal, my husbands meal was terrible. The steak and cheese had old lettuce and the fries were probably a day old and hard. I am not even going to comment on the kids meal and the restrooms.

  348. Saundra Jenkins 2021/04

    I ordered Filet Mignon, mashed potatoes and green beans. We ordered through Uber Eats. The food was warm when we received it. I called the restaurant and spoke with the manager, GINA. I explained that my mashed potatoes tasted like they were the flakes that you pour hot water over. They were not seasoned or buttered. I received Broccoli instead of green beans. She stated that they change the vegetable once weekly but don’t change what is written online. Well I don’t like Broccoli so I had no vegetable to eat and our meal was close to 100.00.
    My husband is a chef and my son was general manager at Lemaire so I have experience on what real mashed potatoes taste like and the texture of them.. I was made to feel like my experience did not matter to her. My husband and I have been supporting our neighborhood restaurants weekly to be a help to the hospitality community during Covid but this wasn’t a good experience. I am not a negative person nor do get a thrill in bashing a restaurant. That is why I complimented the food being warm upon delivery.

    05/07/2021

    I wrote a review about 3 weeks ago and as you can see below I did receive a response. The owner instructed me to send my email and phone number so that she may gift me a meal. I have not heard anything from her after sending requested information twice. I hope that her response was not just for show.

    We had a party of 5. This was our first time there.

    For service, Tarrant’s gets an F.

    There is not enough room here to express our discontent with the service. The food was only ok, & our waitress apparently had issues. Food was cold upon arrival & our waitress was not attentive to our needs. When delivering food, her long hair ended up in one of the plates, right smack on top of the food! When we asked for another plate of food, she seemed irritated. She also spilled jam on the floor and on my daughter’s shoes & said “oops, I’ll get that later”. Well, the jam remained on the floor and on her shoes for the entire time that we were there. The waitress kept repeating “I love my job” over & over to herself in a low voice. We even thought that she may have been having a mental breakdown. These are the main things that stand out but each one of us has our own failed service perspective & experience. The waitress never gave her name. I hope that you have a better experience than we did!

    Recently got my wisdom teeth taken out and needed soup ASAP because I was barely eating because I had absolutely nothing in my home. I found Tarrant’s Cafe on google and rushed to get there because they close at 10 on Sundays and it was 9:50. Two waitresses came to me and one was noticeably ready to go home and the other looked like she could stay a little longer both were very respectful and one took my order. I paid with Apple Pay and was out the door before closing. I sat in my car and ate for the first time in four days nothing got into my holes and it tasted warm and wonderful. I would definitely eat here again.. at a reasonable time next time.

    Just is! I typically make reservations if it is more than me but have never had to wait an extended amount of time, but they do fill up! Always great food fare, it is just all good!

  374. Sandra Baker 2020/12

    We’ve eaten at Tarrant’s several times over the years, and last night was not one of the better experiences. Understanding that restaurants are having a hard time with staffing post COVID, we’ll give the restaurant a try again in a few months. My sandwich was good, though my husband’s entrée was lack luster in both flavors and presentation and not worthy of the price point. While our appetizer came out quickly, the wait for our meals was notably long.

    Very nice and quaint place, food was great but before ordering tell them light on the salt…that shecrab soup is a must have….4 stars only because i asked for no tomatoes witj my shrimp and grits and it had tomatoes but Kudos to the waitress…she noticed and apologized and wanted to take it back but I said no, customer service is a major plus for me..ok 4and a half ⭐

  377. C. Ray 2020/12

    Bread pudding is not good AT ALL! Overly spiced mush. The pizza is alright. Can’t really complain for the price point.

  378. Kate Mcbride 2020/12

    Restaurant closed after confirmation of reservation. This was a special occasion and no one notified us of the closure until we arrived for our 7:00pm reservation. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING!.
    Fortunately The Hardshell was able to accommodate us. Thank you Hardshell!!!

    Ordered from grub hub.
    Was sent blt sandwich (when I ordered the wrap – which is more expensive amd includes avocado).
    My side of pasta salad was only filled halfway in the container.
    The tomato caprese did not include olives as advertised.

    Ate it anyway because i was hungry.

  381. cheryl klinkman 2020/11

    Lindsay was our server, she was top notch. The food was so pretty you don’t want to eat it. We did eat it and every bite was delish

  382. Melvin Williams 2020/11

    Found this place on Open Table app to set reservations. Always drove past it but never went inside. Its a great atmosphere, more of a bar in my opinion then a date night type of spot but the food was great. It came in a timely fashion and the waitress was great. My only issue’s is the place was smaller then expected. It was packed when we got there and had no space to actually stand to wait so we kept having to move out of the way every time the door opened. They seated us right in front of the bar. Unfortunately it was 40 degrees outside so I had to keep my jacket on the whole time due to the door opening every 2 minutes followed by cold air. That is literally the only reason I didn’t give it five stars.

  387. Jed Watkins 2020/11

    I REALLY enjoyed my visit to Tarrant’s Cafe! As soon as I walked in the door I was struck by the smell of delicious food. Although the host stated that seating was by reservation only at that time, seeing no space for two at the bar, he asked if we would be interested in a tiny table for two. That tiny table for two turned out to be just the right size, and in a back corner where we didnt need to worry about other patrons bumping into us. It was exacyly the spot I would have chosen if it was self-seating. Next came the menu which presented a wide variety of foods from which anyone could find something they were interested in. I chose the chicken pot pie with a side salad and, Wow!, when it was delivered the scent was amazing and exactly what I was looking for on a wet and chilly Sunday afternoon. The wait-staff was excellent and the prices were commensurate with the fare although a tick on the pricey side; a 6 if 10 is most expensive. Well worth it for the ambience and overall quality. I definitely recommend Tarrant’s Cafe for anyone desiring a classy and high quality but not over-the-top dining experience, especially if you are on a date with someone special. Parking is limited in the area so plan ahead and consider using your favorite on-call transportation service. Go and ENJOY!

    Spur of the moment decision to stop here was the best decision! Originally wanted to eat at a different restaurant just down the road, but the wait was 45 minutes.. So we took a stroll down to Tarrant’s to try it out. Let me tell you so happy we did, the food was delicious and our waitress was very friendly and on top of it. I will be back next time we’re in RVA! By the way do yourself a favor and get the She Crab soup, it is phenomenal… my Greek Pita was delicious too!

    The scallop on polenta with lobster bisque sauce is to die for! If you go definitely order as an appetizer. Everything I’ve tried at tarrant’s is top-notch! And the staff is always fun and friendly

    Great place for chicken and waffles good salads too

  393. Wisdom 2020/10

    Upon arriving we were seated in the far back. Not sure why that was , being that there was no dress attire required. The male waiter we had did not give straws with the drinks. We waited several mintues for our order to be taken.Food finally arrived only to have the chicken under cooked and bleeding. They judge off apperance.

  394. Natalie Cheney 2020/10

    First off, shout out to Abdel for being a very bright and upbeat server. The staff in general was great in keeping the waters filled and attending to our needs. I believe the owner came by to check on how everything was doing, which is always a good thing for any restaurant,

  395. Robert Strunck 2020/09

    Eclectic. Cool menu!! Great bar!!

  396. Utkarsh Doshi 2020/09

    Located on broad street is this jewel of a restaurant. It is difficult to say from outside what this place holds within but once you step in everything is wonderful and beyond imagination i.e decor, food and staff. It seems like original windows and door have been preserved and made part or the decor. Staff is super nice, courteous and very knowledgeable. The food options are great for both vegetarian and meat lovers alike and so are libations. I would definitely recommend this place. I have been here twice already in a month.

  397. Life of Ky 2020/09

    This was my first time trying Turrant’s Cafe and was very pleasantly surprised. I am on a plant based diet and the food was very good. I would visit again.

    Really interesting place. Good old atmosphere. Good selection of well prepared food. We actually came two evenings in a row!

  401. Nicole Blanton 2020/09

    Becca is the best server I have ever had. My family went out for brunch, and had the best time. Food was great, but Becca is the reason we will be back.

  402. Derrick K 2020/09

    Comfortable pub with good comfort food on the menu. The pizza is really good too. We were glad they were open late on Sunday for dinner and the service was friendly and attentive.

  403. Richard Monroe 2020/08

    Relaxing atmosphere, and hopefully, I’ll work there soon.

  404. Tom Marcin 2020/08

    Service slow as can be, even at 9:30 pm and few people in the place. Food was cold and flavorless.

  405. M G 2020/08

    I fell that this was more like a 2.5 star review, but that is not an option and our server was great, so I’ll leave it at 3.

    Synopsis: Expansive menu, average food. French fries were literally the store bought frozen kind but sold by the waitress as “really great.” Drinks are not made by true mixologists. Mine was too sweet. This is a Richmond staple, but I’m surprised by the positive reviews given my experience and sampling of several dishes (refrigerated, pre-prepared salad, etc) Richmond has amazing food, but Olive Garden would have delivered a better meal

  406. Priscilla Kifer 2020/08

    Hands down one of the worst dining experiences I have had in Richmond. Our salad was the freshest thing at the table, I suggest ordering dressing on the side or else its offensive. The crab stuffed mushrooms were inedible as was the eggplant stack that tasted like it had been breaded and fried a long while before it got to our table, not to mention the rubber cheese/oil poured over top. I would not recommend this place to anyone unless eating old food is your jam. The waitress was lovely and I hope that she finds a better establishment to work for. We spent $80 some dollars and the majority of the food went in the trash. 🙁

  407. Lincoln MV 2020/08

    The Sailor is great. Service is friendly and helpful!

  408. Tom F. 2020/08

    Edit: I truly appreciate the owner reaching out and even offering a gift certificate. It shows that they (or the two that really didnt come through for us) probably were having a bad night and that their service is usually better – they obviously care, and that should go a LONG way for anyone considering this place. While I will pass, I think Liz’s response shows that this place is probably worth your time, and my experience with service was likely and outlier.

    The food here ranged from good to great, but the service here was unforgivably horrible. From the moment we arrived about 10 minutes early for our reservation, service went sideways. I will cut the hostess slack for not even acknowledging our party while she was busy seating others, especially since when she came back for the third group she was seating she looked at us and said she be right with us. Cool, I get how crazy it can be when you are in the thick of a rush, plus we arrived 10 min early! But when she returned, went directly past us to a walk in (no reservation), who had arrived while she was seating the last party (that is, who came in after us), and brought them to a booth that was identical to the booth we had to wait to be busted before we could be seated.

    The waitress was just as bad. The service was incredibly slow throughout the meal – drinks were often empty, then soda I ordered was completely flat (they said they were having problems with it, took it, and didnt offer to replace it or ask me if I wanted something else to drink), our waitress hardly stopped by, etc. I could have chalked up to how busy they were if not for what happened with the wait for our bill. When she finally brought the check we had been finished for a while and were ready to go, but she took off before we could put the card in it and hand it back. And then we waited. And waited. After THIRTY MINUTES of waiting for her to return, our guests finally left – they were tired and we didn’t want to make them wait. During this time our waitress was nowhere to be found. I ended up waiting at the table while my girlfriend went to the bar to order a glass of wine while we waited. It must have been nearly 50 minutes before she returned to take the check – at which point I was alone at the table. There was no rush at that point, and no explanation or apology was offered by anyone.

    The food was actually pretty good, for the most part. The blackened red snapper was a bit dry, but the crab stuffed mushrooms and the she crab soup were very good. Everyone else seemed to like their dishes and the food would probably warrant a 4 star review.

    On whole, the only recommendation I can make for Tarrant’s Cafe is that IF you go (I know the four of us will never return), you eat at the bar. The she-crab soup is worth trying, and a bartender cannot ignore you for nearly an hour and will keep your drinks full. Otherwise, stay away unless you want to sit there with empty glasses and plates for much longer than it took you to read this review.

    came recommend but was disappointed in quality of food.Instant potatoes, steak not cooked as requested,fries are seasoned but not listed as such on the menu and cold. Fish was topped with cold crab meat and asparagus was also cold. Shrimp and grits were hot and good. Hamburger was good.

  414. Len Frame 2020/07

    Wonderfully cooked filet! Try the Tarrant’s Manhattan. The service was very attentive and knowledgeable and most importantly, very pleasant.

  415. Massimo Bistocchi 2020/07

    Atmosphere is always nice there, despite having only 2 tables with customers in the restaurants at 8:15pm. I feel like the appetizers are the most appealing part of the menu, especially if you’re vegetarian. Good variety (fried green tomatoes were pretty good). Salads are a bit dry (To me they should be wet but it’s my personal preference) but you can tell the ingredients are fresh and of quality. Cocktails are tasty and clearly get the right care. Staff is professional and present without been intrusive. All together a good experience.

  419. Charles Morrill 2020/06

    Eclectic venue and interesting menu, but flavors fall short of potential. The fried oysters were plump and succulent, but lacked flavor. Same for the upside down apple walnut pie. Almost no walnuts at all, factory crust, and no burst of pizzaz at all. Waitress was friendly and professional.

  420. Thomas Raycroft 2020/06

    Good food, quiet setting
    First rate. I was particularly impressed with the service we received from Taylor. I ordered the Ellie’s brown ale when Taylor discovered that the tap had run dry, she came back to inform me I would have to make another selection. When she did this she brought a sampler of Ale Works Brown so that could taste if that was expectable . That is going above and beyond.
    Great place for the Discerning beer drinker.

    It was my first visit. I think I need to visit again and try another meal because I really wasn’t impressed this time around. The service was great and the drinks were good. I just didn’t liked what I ordered but I did like my sister’s meal!

  426. Michael 2020/05

    Let me just say that I never write reviews about restaurants, let alone one of Richmond’s staples, or about one of my favorite restaurants in the city. However, what I received from them tonight (September 10) was absolutely atrocious. I ordered the the shrimp and grits dinner and the seafood combination dinner for takeout. The food was hot but incredibly underwhelming. The seafood combination dinner which they charge $29.95 for had a thin unseasoned tilapia filet, three small shrimp, and an under cooked crab cake – an absurd rip off. It say’s served with “daily veg” on the menu but it was served on a single leaf of lettuce! Also listed a side of brown rice that was nowhere to be found. Pick-up is a tough game for places that depend on plating like Tarrant’s but I never expected a highly regarded top dish on their dinner menu would be presented so poorly. As for the shrimp and grits, they were doused in sauce with what looked like barely a half cup of grits in the middle with a single slice of cheddar melted with around 7-8 decently sized shrimp. The shrimp on the grits might have been the only highlight of an otherwise two dinners that cost me $60. Pick-up dinners aren’t always the best way to enjoy sit-down places like Tarrant’s but I would hope that for the price tag the portion sizes would actually match or be seasoned to taste. I have had better seafood combination dinners from Long John Silvers. To be honest the bread pudding dessert I ordered was spot on like every other time that I have had it and that’s the only reason why I am giving one star.

  431. matt huffman 2020/03

    Food was okay and service was a bit slow. The menu is overly packed with items and the font is crazy small. The plating was great and the portion sizes were worth the prices listed. It was not busy when I went and felt we waited longer for food and apps. They seemingly kicked us out while my group was chatting by turning all the lights fully on.

  432. Ladreaka Grays 2020/02

    I’ve been to this place several times. The food is mediocre. I get the same meal every time which is the seafood combo. The meal consists of shrimp, one crab cake, scallops and tilapia. I usually substitute the tilapia for extra scallops. I usually pay 1.50 up charge. Today the upcharge is 4.00. No biggie but there should be a more consistent price. The night before I came in and they were out of crab meat for the crab cake that comes with the meal. I was still going to charged 29.95 for the meal even though the main and most expensive protein wasn’t available. I ended up paying for just thee salad I ate. I felt like being it was two hours before closing they were half stepping.

  433. Steve B 2020/02

    Awesome food and relaxing environment. Great place for a date night.

    We came here in search for some she crab soup, boy did we find it.

    Someone before us left a raving review about the soup and we are here to confirm it is indeed amazing! So tasty we decided to buy a bowl to go as well. Make sure to dip some garlic bread in there too..YUM!

    We also tried the strawberry waffle sundae, delicious as well. DEFINITELY DO NOT ORDER THIS FOR YOURSELF. Very large portion.

    Our waitress was very nice and helpful, representing some true southern charm. Pricing is affordable. The place is well decorated and very quaint. Lovely little restaurant!

  444. Scott Wichmann 2020/01

    To call what we were just presented with “hospital food” would be an affront to actual hospital food. I don’t know what happened to this place. (Change of ownership or management? New chef?) I’ve been coming here for years and I don’t even recognize this place anymore. A cup of cold coffee and a pork chops slathered in some kind of some kind of disgustingly syrupy, too-sweet, un-reduced glaze. Bland, tasteless steamed vegetables and what tasted like instant potatoes. My wife got “blackened” salmon which was really just a hunk of salmon with a ton of salt & old bay dumped on top. We were offered something else but I actually lost my appetite. I’ve never experienced anything like it. Imagine a steadfast, reliable place that you’ve been going to for ten years and one day the flavorful, rich entrees you remember are replaced by soulless, bland, tasteless, flavorless food. I’m stunned. Please, Tarrant’s, tell me this is just one bad night…

  445. Crystal Washington 2020/01

    The atmosphere was beautifully eclectic. The food has always been perfection and generous. Great service and staff. I have been going there for years and always had a great time. Bread pudding to die for…they no longer have valet service and currently closed. I hope we don’t lose them forever.

    My husband and I rarely get out and have am evening alone without kids. When we do, we enjoy good food and drinks. After an afternoon at the Altria theater, we searched for a place to eat. Tarrents had good reviews and close to where we were.
    The server was kind, courteous and attentive.the food was VERY unimpressive. They were out of scallops and flounder despite many dishes featuring them.

    Appearently we never got the garlic bread that was served all around us.

    I ordered the Mahi mahi with coconut sauce. It was not sauce. I would describe it as a tasteless glob with pineapple chunks. The fish itself was cooked well but for the price….substandard. All for the low low price of $26.00+. The Shecrab soup tasted like toilet bowl cleaner. I was unable to eat it. My husband tried it and described it similarly.
    The food was below average and next time I would rather cook at home knowing that the quality is better than what I paid for today.
    I will not be going back. Nor will I recommend this restaurant.

  458. Morgan Saunders 2019/12

    One of my favorite restaurants in Richmond. The coziness of all their comfort food with the old school vibe provides that perfect place for dinner. EVERYTHING on the menu is sooooo tasty. I’ve even catered a lunch from here. Love this place.

  459. Tammy Vietti 2019/12

    We were in Richmond for only a few hours and it just so happened to be lunch time. We Googled ‘best lunch in Richmond VA’ and found Tarrant’s Cafe. What a find!!! I had such a hard time deciding from all the yummy choices on the menu but in the end both my husband and I ordered from the happy hour menu (did I mention … happy hour is all afternoon!!) He had a 10″ pizza with extra cheese, extra pepperoni with red sauce. Now if you have read any of my other restaurant reviews you know my hubby is picky!! And now I’m going to tell you he is even more picky about pizza!! Well he was still raving about this one hours later when we were driving back home. That says so much! I had a fish taco AND a 10″ white pizza with basil and tomato. I know …. I was extremely hungry this particular day!! And I was truly satisfied after my five star taco and halfway through my rockin’ pizza but I just couldn’t entertain the idea of putting this yumminess into a box for a long drive home. So I ate it all!!! And had not one regret …. We will definitely return to Tarrant’s Cafe for another meal. Soon!! You should try this place too 🙂

    Very nice atmosphere, server was very friendly, took a little too long from start to finish, but the food was excellent.

    Definitely disappointing. We just moved down to the John Marshall today and were out for a celebration dinner. Though the restaurant was only half full at most, the bar was ‘apparently’ so backed up it took us 15 minutes to get a martini. And then another 30 to get a bottle of wine, our first selection they did not have.

    The waiter, and then manager gave us nothing but excuses.

    Thank God we did not order our entrees in advance or we would have had no wine with dinner. As it turned out, the wine took so long that we only had another light fare option.

    We may come here again sometime but will certainly not be our first choice.

    This place is ahhmazing. The service is top notch, the food is incredible – very high quality, fresh made, the bread for the table is divine. Awesome lunch prices for sandwiches / salads / small plates . Gets a little busy at lunch, but still good spot if you have an hour. Their menu has really great options that are healthy and delicious. Overall my go to for lunch.

    Good place. Really cool decor and atmosphere. Food is very nice. Tenderloin Benedict is dope. Server attention could be better. Two bites or two minutes 😉. …

  477. imani dilworth 2019/11

    Got the bacon pizza and fried calamari to go. pizza was great! Calamari was not, very rubbery, no pepper rings, and they don’t give you a lot for it to be 12/13 bucks. However this place has great reviews I just probably ordered the wrong thing, will try again.

  478. Jessica Willis 2019/11

    Absolutely horrible. Came here for a lunch meeting with my boss. Not busy when we arrived. Waited 2 hours. Got the catfish sandwich special, made me gag when I took a bite. Once I finally got the attention of my server (did not get his name, but bleach blonde hair and he was wearing a black velvet short sleeve shirt) he asked me what I wanted instead, without any further explanation. At this point I was starving, so I said I would take a burger to go. Requested WELL DONE because even though I prefer medium, I was weary of what was happening in the kitchen because the fish was off and had a foul odor. PLEASE SEE THE PICTURES of the raw (not even warm!) meat. The lettuce was also absolutely filthy, with chunks of dirt on the leaves. I would really appreciate a response from management. ON TOP OF ALL OF THAT and the wait, I still had to pay for the burger that I could not even eat while my boss enjoyed her salad. Awkward and awful.

    I had heard this location was small . I was surprised it was a nice sized restaurant . The manager was soooooo nice and accommodating. Our server Victoria was pleasant and patient . The food was good . The only complaint I have is the sauce mornay (?) was a little salty . The atmosphere was cozy ..

  484. Joel Burton 2019/10

    Good local place to eat. Reasonable portions, friendly bar tender, honestly lacking in presentation and taste, but not so much you wouldn’t want to try this place for sure. Valet is a great perk also. Support local!

  485. Patrice Braxton 2019/10

    Service was friendly and pretty quick, despite being there during a busy lunchtime. The food, however, was not very impressive. We had a wrap, a sandwich, and fries. Looking at the menu, they use far too much ricotta and raisins in their dishes. The food was just so-so, not a whole lot of flavor. The menu is just too big, if they would cut it in half and focus in on a smaller selection of dishes, the quality of the food and the flavor would greatly improve. We likely won’t be going back.

  486. Buihe Madu 2019/10

  490. George Gamotta 2019/10

    We had high hopes when we dined here at the end of March, based on reviews. We were initially disappointed because we were seated all the way in the back, next to the bathrooms, despite there being many other open tables in the restaurant. The food was OK. Not great, not bad. Just ho-hum. Except for the She Crab soup which was bland. I expected it to be more flavorful and it had a particularly flour-y taste and feel, as if the the soup was thickened with uncooked flour, rather than a properly cooked roux.

    But the worst was our waiter (Server #96) who was, once he realized we were not drinking alcohol, dismissive and eager to move us as long as fast as possible so he could turn his table. He kept trying (multiple times) to take my plate, even though I was still eating. At one point, I actually told him to go away and he still pestered us non-stop. He ended up taking my plate while my last bite of food was still in my hand. He turned what we had hoped would be a relaxing meal into a fast food experience.

    No desire to return to Tarrant’s…

    UPDATE (05/13/2019): On May 3rd, I emailed Liz at the email address posted in her response, asking what more details she would like to know. I was afraid that her “please email me” response was boilerplate and done only to create an appearance of care & concern. Ten days later and no response. Turns out my fears were correct. The care & concern was about as deficient as the service and she-crab soup.

    On our way to North Carolina my wife and I stopped in Richmond Virginia.
    We searched for a place to eat on the 4th of July…. And Tarrant’s was it… Just blocks from our hotel…
    Beautiful ecelect decor, the service was great… Katie F. Was knowledgeable about the menu and wines… Also the she crab soup… Was incredible!
    Thank you for a great eating experience…

  497. Christopher Munton 2019/09

    Been here a lot. My last experience was not good. First in my past visit the food and service was good. Back to my bad experience. I came withy work group. We arrived at 11:30 am. Ordered around 12:00. Ordered basic sandwiches. Didn’t get food until 1:20. The food was cold and not very good. We hastily packed our food because we needed to get back to work. Took another 20 minutes to get the check. Hopefully they had service issues. I’ll give them a benefit of the doubt.

  498. Lauren Methena 2019/09

    UPDATE: Thank you, Liz, for your very thoughtful response. Yes, I’m sure we will be back and we will definitely try the other places, too. I have no doubt that your chef and everyone in the kitchen works very hard. The care and the pride in their food shows. So we will come back and keep trying some of the new things. Thank you! ORIGINAL POST: Tarrant’s is a Richmond staple, which is why I hate giving it three stars. The service is always spot on and friendly! Incredibly personable! The food itself is good quality and well prepared. The reason I give it three stars is because to me, the food is bland and unadventurous. It’s southern comfort food. Which is great! But there are no good vegetarian/vegan options, and the menu is a little traditional. If that’s what you are looking for, this place could be four or five stars. However, for me, I’m always slightly disappointed. Last time, I had the tilapia Ruben. Sounded good! But was bland. The Cole slaw wasn’t tart enough. Needed sauerkraut. I added malt vinegar and that helped. Just needed more oomph! So, it’s definitely worth checking out. Because it’s Tarrant’s! Just know what to expect.

  499. michael welton 2019/09

    First time here. Everyone was friendly. Food came very quick. I had crab stuffed flounder and my wife had the seafood cannelloni. This was one of the most delicious seafood meals we have had. Thanks Tarrants for a great first experience.

    Chicken parm sandwich was sooo good, but note that the tomato sauce is definitely on the sweet side. The mashed potatoes are divine. The service was a little slow, but our waitress was very nice and accommodating. Definitely a 4.5 star, but I can only do whole points

  503. Archer Pippin 2019/09

    Fabulous service and wonderful food. Lunch menu was superb and not too pricey. Our server was super and gave great recommendations. We will definitely be back. Tarrant’s Cafe deserves 6 stars!

  504. Tish Martin 2019/09

    She Crab soup was very good. My meal, the Chicken Marsala was disappointing- the description on the menu did not note the style in which it was made, I was expecting the classic non-breaded chicken and marsala sauce, but got something very different.
    On the other hand, one of my party ordered the Shrimp & Grits and was very happy.

  505. Peter Szijarto 2019/09

    One of my favorites in Richmond!

    The service is generally great, the wait times aren’t too bad, and it’s a great place for a date. There is a full service bar too with great cocktails to be had. It’s in a great location downtown. Definitely a great place to eat on a First Friday as you can check out the art after you eat or before, whichever suits you best.

    If you’ve never been the Pizza is absolutely a must have.

    I recently ordered delivery through a service and had the Asian Chicken Salad (with teriyaki chicken, water chesnuts, mandarin oranges, wonton noodles, cucumber & tomato over mixed greens dressed with sesame ginger vinaigrette), Curry Squash Soup, and a side of garlic bread. DEEEE-LISH!

    Other items that are must-haves:
    Fried Chicken and Waffles
    Blackened Tuna
    Deluxe Pizza
    Meat Lovers Calzone
    Fish Tacos
    Burger w/Bacon and Cheese
    BLT

    Wash it down with a nice Old Fashioned and you’ll be set!

    Sit at the bar and you’ll be privy to some great stories from the patrons beside you as some interesting characters make their way into the place.

    Lunch on a Friday afternoon so YMMV. Wasn’t packed by any stretch when we got in, promptly seated, but the service was a bit lacking overall. Menu and ordering process was simple and straight forward. Food took longer than expected given the amount of people at the restaurant. Chicken parm was good, fries were ok – not hot, but warm. Coworkers seemed to like their entrees. Would consider coming again but if the experience is similar to this one then it’s a wrap for this spot.

    Tarrant’s Cafe is the kind of place you go out of curiosity and stay because of the hospitality. There aren’t many places in Richmond I would happily spend money at several days a week, but Tarrant’s is and always will be special. The first time I ever came was my freshman year of college with my dad and it became our regular Saturday spot. 5 years later and I’m still there basically every day. I got a lot of love for this place and everyone that works here ❤️

  524. Nicholas Capito 2019/07

    Always a great meal. Doesn’t matter if it’s lunch or dinner there is always something on the menu for everyone. The first time I came here I was like oh no there are way too many options.. but everything I have had has been amazing! Including the drinks. Don’t forget to try the shecrab soup..

    Great for small and large parties but make sure you make a reservation.

  528. Pamela Minoski Runac 2019/07

    Disappointed this time. She crab soup didn’t seem to have any crab. Lots of mushrooms. Not worth $9. Might give it another chance. Used to love their tarragon chicken salad.

    I literally can not think of a single complaint. The place has such a cute vibe! We went on a Friday night and the atmosphere was so cozy. The food was amazingggg. We were looking for places with a good variety of food choices and got wings, pasta, and chicken pot pie. And for dessert the cobbler. Service was great and food was great. Had to leave a review

  530. Stephen Northcutt 2019/07

    We went here since it was close to our AirBnB and we had just flown, were hungry, arrived, 20 minutes before closing, and they were already shutting down. They were gracious about making a meal for us and chatted like we were old friends. Very serviceable lasagna, Kathy had the fish tacos and hummus platter, very tasty. A bit more red onion than I normally eat, but that seems to be a Richmond VA thing 🙂

    The place looks nice and everyone there was very friendly. Food delivery a little bit slow. But the only thing that will probably keep me from going back was the food itself. We got a tarragon chicken salad sandwich and a margarita pizza. Both were very bland and no actual flavors seemed to pop out.

    Came here this previous Saturday, it was a bit busy, but we were seated in great time. I’m new to the Yelp reviewing, but this place was nice! The ambience, the service, the atmosphere! The filling inside gave off a really seafood-heavy aroma and the creamy sauce matched the crepe. Although the crepe was a little too thick in terms of texture, I still enjoyed the overall dish.

    Very surprised by this place. It’s in an old pharmacy. Had one if the best fruit and green salads with grilled chicken I had ever eaten. Prices were reasonable, and they deliver to hotels in the area and the university. They seated me at the bar as I dined alone, and that was my only complaint. Bartender took good care of me, but the servers were continually moving behind and around me and the bar is located at the front in a narrow area where people wait to be seated and I kept getting bumped into. Get a table and you’ll be fine.

  559. Tim Field 2019/05

    Showed up on time for our 5:45 reservation. After 15 minutes of waiting we were told we could wait longer for a private table or join a “community table”. We opted for the shared table to join 3 other couples (all very nice), all with reservations (so Tarrant’s knew we were all coming).

    All of us were going to evening shows (3 different shows for 4 couples), so time was essential. We all ordered as soon as given opportunity, but 50+ minutes after being seated, still no food (my wife and I ordered sandwiches!!). Finally one couple left without dinner to get to their 7pm show. We were getting ready to do the same when food finally arrived – which all couples wolfed down and scooted out.

    Food was fine but not worth hour and 15 minute wait from time of our reservation to receive simple sandwiches at a shared community table – not the sort of romantic, relaxed evening of a meal and show that I envisioned!

    If I give zero stars I would. I went to Tarrants downtown in a party of five (well 6 since I’m pregnant) and an hour later we walked out without eating. We were never served. Everyone else around us recieved their food and ate with plenty of time to attend a show at the theater. I am appalled. We were really hungry and with a 2 hour play ahead we were not able to get any food. No explanation was given. The waiter said she was bringing the manager over and the manager never came. I am completely floored by the treatment.

    It was my first time eating here. I had heard lots about the place from social media and people that I know. I was expecting a longer wait at 12:30 p.m. on a Sunday, but 20 minutes was it for a party of 2. Great atmosphere and food. The staff was courteous and attentive. The food was of quality and tasty. A repeat and a must, especially if you like to mix great food and the charm of the architecture and decor of an old building.

    The food was good but it was packed that night and the service was slow. Normally that’s not a problem but we had tickets to Altria. We ended up inhaling our dinner before leaving. Better luck next time

    Two friends of mine and I decided to give this place a try on 12/2/2018 and let me just say it was a disappointing experience. When we arrived, we were seated by a server who paid no attention to us after bringing us our drinks (we didn’t see him again until it was time to pay the bill by the way). He didn’t even bother asking us if we needed anything else and instead, sent over a random waitress to take our order because he was “too busy” with his other tables. However, he was attentive to every other table around us. I think this had to do with the fact that my friends and I are young college students and the environment had mostly upper class looking customers dressed in professional attire so he just may have not taken us seriously and thought how could we possibly afford to eat in such an upscale establishment. Little did he know, we’re not broke and would’ve left a generous tip on our bill had he been a good server.The wait for our food was pretty long and the food was mediocre. We didn’t even finish it. The meals are too pricey to taste mediocre. What’s crazy is that a woman sitting behind us had asked us about our experience and come to find out she was disappointed with hers as well. You couldn’t pay me to eat here again!

    Awesome Italian food and bread with olive oil, Parmesan cheese & fresh herbs on it. First time I tried it, was so yummy!

  579. John Baylor Jr 2019/03

    You cant go wrong with Tarrants, pickup, delivery or dining in the quality and taste of the food is second to none! The staff is typically friendly, prices are what you’d expect depending on the dish. Always a pleasant experience here!

    Went for restaurant week and super glad we did. The chicken and waffles were cooked perfectly and the green beans very well seasoned. But the best part was the chili calimari. Based on that alone it was one of my favorite restaurant experiences. If that becomes a regular menu item I’d eat it every visit. Also our server, Megan, was awesome and super nice.

  586. Kayla Taylor 2019/03

    Happy hour here is literally the best thing on the planet. Amazing drinks for 5…6 bucks…a full pizza for 6….calamari…wings…all for super low. And the place is literally a town secret. Oh and btw…happy hour is from 11-7. Just saying. It’s perfect.

  587. John Larrabee 2019/03

    While Tarrant’s has a big reputation for brunch, the space itself is kitschy and authentic, and the service is competent, we found the kitchen greatly lacking. My bene was tough and had a strange flavor, and the fruit cup was mostly unripened honeydew. Good coffee saved the morning from mediocrity.

  588. Casandra Montemayor 2019/03

    This little gem is great!!! Small place in downtown Richmond that is cute, quaint and delicious. The service was wonderful and very friendly. We had their famous garlic bread, calamari, fish and chips, BLT wrap and philly cheese steak. Everything was wonderful. Very fresh and just an overall good flavor. For dessert we had the creme burle and the walnut cake. It was all delicious. I would recommend and I will definitely return.

  601. Ali Gang 2019/02

    Food is subpar. Quality has gone down overtime for how much the food costs. I think it’s the large menu. Having a simple menu will illustrate quality and care in the food, ensuring that it is fresh. The service, however, is horrendous. Probably the worst I’ve ever experienced. It took 10 minutes for the waitress to come to our table when we were seated. Then another 15 minutes for her to take our order. Then our food took 40 minutes to come, even with only a few other tables that were occupied at the restaurant. I ordered the Rachel, and the bread was soggy and falling apart, while the meat was lukewarm, it wasn’t pleasant. My wife ordered the Po’ Boy oyster sandwich, and it was bland and falling apart, it was off-putting especially for being almost $16 and her being from Louisiana. Our son got the Chicken Herb Sandwich with Texas toast and it made him nauseous. The chicken was cartlidgey and the cheese was raw. While our daughter got the fish and chips which tasted like it was bought frozen from some cheap supermarket. And all our fries were drowned with salt. Our calamari was good and came on time as a starter. However, we didn’t even have cutleries to begin with. When we tried to call our waitress to tell her, she was too busy chatting and laughing with the other staff members at the bar. She only came to our table to give us the food, and didn’t even come to check on us. Even asking for the bill took long. That is extremely rude, especially since we are giving our time and money to this establishment for a pleasant experience. And for dessert, our canoli was stale and the coffee lukewarm. I hope there will be improvement because this place has so much potential with fantastic drinks from the bar and a beautiful ambiance. We’ll be coming back to give it another chance but not anytime soon.

    Tarrant’s Café is one of my favorite local restaurants. It has delicious food with a twist. Brunch options are fabulous. My favorite is the chicken and waffles. We also love the breakfast pizza. Oh and the pineapple mimosa!!!!!!! They also serve cinnamon rolls with brunch or garlic knots at lunch and dinner time. The original restaurant in the downtown area has a really nice period decor. The west end location is simple elegance. Tarrant’s is a must visit!

  617. Shaun Malik 2019/01

    Food was delicious but the service was terrible. People all around us kept having issues with their orders including us. The waiter was nice and very apologetic but expected so much more from a $90 meal. When they staff wasn’t checking on tables they were all hanging out at the bar along with the manager. That might be okay if you’re on top of everything and your guests are being served as they should, but it was really frustrating so have so many issues and then see them just hanging out shooting the breeze. I had the lasagna and my wife had the ravioli and both were delicious. There were lots of other great looking options on the menu as well. Might give them another try when I’m out for a cheaper meal in the future, but there are so many better options nearby if your looking to go out for a nice dinner.

  624. Van 2018/12

    Only had drinks, but they were very good. Asked the mixologist for a not too sweet riff on a Manhattan, and he nailed it with a very creative drink that was just right for a fall evening with hints of vanilla, molasses, and apple pie. Delicious.

    Whoa, my daughter google this restaurant before her plane landed from Texas. She wanted to take me to a trendy place here in Richmond for lunch. Tarrant’s Cafe blew my mind, implecation being, I’ve lived in Richmond twelve years had never even ventured into this area to dine. It took a Houstionian to introduce me to this fabulous dining experience at Tarrant’s Cafe. Definitely, will add it to my lunch spot from time to time.

  632. Scott Clark 2018/12

    We used to love Tarrant’s, but recent visits have been disappointing. It seems prices have gone up and portion size has gone down. On a recent visit our guest ordered a regular breakfast that, when it arrived, the whole party was surprised at the minimal size of the portion. We were embarrassed and have now crossed Tarrant’s off our list of brunch possibilities.

  633. JoMo 2018/12

    Did not find this place to be that great. Food took an extremely long time to be served. Waitress was not pleasant by any stretch. Mashed potatoes were not hot, there frying batter is the absolute worst. It really needs to be changed, it wasn’t seasoned or flavorful at all. Booth seats are not bolted in so you feel every movement of person sitting behind, makes for unpleasant experience when your getting bumped around and such every time someone sits or tries to get comfortable.

    My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here last night and it was amazing!! We had a beautiful bottle of Malbec. My husband’s steak was amazing. I had the risotto off of the appetizer menu as my meal and I requested the addition of sauteed shrimp with no issues. That was the best risotto I have ever had…they really should make it an entree! Our waiter was very attentive and the atmosphere here was wonderful. All in all a great experience!! My husband has also had lunch here several times and he says it is always good.

    If I could give more than 5 starts, I would!!

    We’ve been here several times over the past few years. Never been disappointed. Love the ambience, decor. Historical. Stained glass reads 1877. Like stepping into past.

    Diverse menu. Crab cake sandwich was good. Dining companions liked their oyster po boy, salmon entree and she crab soup. I’ve had the fruit and cheese plate in the past…yummy. Lemonade variety with free refills, fresh squeezed. Can order lemonade with ginger or honey. Both good but ginger had a nice kick, sorta like ginger beer but not as strong.

    We had a quick opportinuty to group-attack a luscious brownie sundae when a member of our group fell ill and had to be transported to ER. That had nothing to do with the food — she has a host of health problems — but we deeply appreciated how quickly the manager and waitress sprang into action helping out professionally and compassionately. We were super impressed with the service which was already great before this scare happened. Just wish we could have finished the sundae. Dang, it was good. Lots of ice cream and whipped cream w chocolate and caramel drizzled over.

    Love bringing visitors to this place because it’s impressive. They always remember it and ask about it later during repeat visits.

  650. Phil Easley 2018/11

    Had dinner here. The service and food were both excellent. The she crab soup was full of crab, in every spoonful, there was crab. When our food arrived, our waiter told us to be careful as the plates were hot. I don’t know how many oysters were on my plate, they were fresh and flavorful. They have a very nice selection of beer snd wine. When I’m back in Richmond, will return here for dinner.

    Another round of °•LapTop HoPpiN•° I wanted my Latte ofcourse and because I cleaned a client’s house near downtown today and my kids are off N away for the night with there dad, I did my random Google of “study places near me that serve coffee and open late”. So cool..so cool…[CheeziN Inside like a Father kid loves Twinkies] <~ my face? Dead flat expression… Don't let it fool you…

    I parked my car a 10 min walk away, paid the 1.25 for letting my car just sit there 🤔 , called my Archeological mentor to get there updates on my walk, and WALLAH! this place is AWESOME! and did you know prior to being this hip Vibe spot, it was a Soda, Drugs, Tobacco store? So I get to sit on history while studying more history! I ordered a Latte and it was perfect! The place is a nice size, so don't feel like you gotta be that Sardine feeling packed beyond pleasure. Only feel some type of way bc I wish my Fiance'was here with me right now. I was already near downtown and home was a bit oppositely further… Love that man!! 💖💖

    Before I finish boring you with my long review, I totally gotta swipe-text this; my waitress said they have a Historical book on the property of when it use to be a pharmacy. "Everyone that comes into this place is SO LIKE!! OMG! I would look at this History book for A LOOONG time!" Verbatimally spoken by my waitress..

    MANNNNNN LET ME JUST SAY… i live 2 hours away (2.5 hours counting traffic) and I will drive that far for the same great food AGAIN! I’m going to make this quick and simple.

    Food: Absolutely perfect. I had a great salad with vinaigrette, the bread was hot out the oven, the drinks I had were the BCP which is honestly one of the best drinks I’ve had in my life. It was like a lemon mojito. Fried Calamari was pretty good. Better than average. Last but not least, what I drove two hours for….. (drum roll) … The chicken and waffles with restaurant made special syrup. Just great. I haven’t ate so much in my life!!!

    Service: Great! I had a reservation for 915, but we got there early. Asked if it was a problem to get seated early, and they obliged happily. The waiter never let our water glass hit empty. Even had free valet. Over all the service was phenomenal.

    Summary: Best.Place.Thus.Far. That simple and easy. They have other great reviews and this place has earned every great review it’s earned!

There’s a good amount of seafood on the menu if you are a fan, but there’s also plenty of other options. I liked their grain bowl at lunchtime. Very healthy and fresh. The garlic bread is also good (that’s your bread brought to the table).

  686. Moné Clarke 2018/09

    Sat at the bar for brunch as there was a bit of a wait time. Seafood crepe was amazing. Bar service was amazing. I’d recommend eating here but sitting at a table. The downside of the bar area was that there were a bunch of flies.

    Delicious Food and Atmosphere! Great service that was able to accommodate my family without reservations on a Sunday. Even the kiddos under 5 wanted more food and they loved the homemade rolls that are provided as a courtesy.

    Try the she crab, you won’t be disappointed!

    We occasionally come back to Tarrant’s because we keep forgetting that we don’t really like it that much.
    We should just stick to Max’s across the street.

    One of the BEST!! in Richmond places to go for brunch or Lunch.

  692. Derek Garnett 2018/08

    Meh, always packed, fish tacos are just bad. Had a pastrami sammich that was good. For lunch you will be there for an hour and a half, maybe more.

  693. Donna Jenkins 2018/08

    Very nice restaurant but it is a little pricey to me. My server Paul T was amazing. If you didn’t like something he would make it right. I will go again.

    Stop putting crack in the she crab soup. I can’t stop eating it. Please stop making such good food you will make me fat. Seriously as a public service stop being so awesome.

  700. Bob Bonham 2018/08

    We love Tarrant’s! Great space in the old Drugstore on Broad Street. Excellent food with an “up” vibe, but still romantic. One of our “go-to’s”!

  701. TANEISHA GREEN 2018/08

    The omelettes took over 30 mins to come out and when they did they were cold and tasteless. All of our food was cold. The potatoes were pretty good.

  702. Kenneth DeLuca 2018/08

    This restaurant showed contempt and indifference to my wife and me last night. We made a reservation for 2 at 8pm. We arrive 5 mins early and are told there are no tables available and are told to wait. No apologies were offered. No explanation. No estimate as to when we would be seated. After waiting 15 minutes, I ask when we could expect to be seated and am informed several other parties are ahead of us. Again no apologies, no explanation. We are left standing at the entrance. Obviously this restaurant overbooks and forces its would be customers to deal with the consequences. So we immediately left and walked a block to Max’s where we were treated much differently. This is no way to treat customers. What’s the point of making a reservation if the restaurant’s strategy makes it impossible for it to honor the reservation? This restaurant’s reservation system is essentially a lie. It leads you to believe you have a reservation but you really don’t. What if we had tickets to a concert? If Tassants lies about your reservation, who knows what’s in the meatloaf? Why risk finding out the hard way?

  703. OKay Gee (K. G.) 2018/08

    Ok food. Nonplussed by the service. Took 4 attempts for me to get the drink I ordered. So they kindly took it off the ticket. My friend enjoyed her meal, but we both had dry fruit. One of the servers said it was just a fluke and kindly sent the mgr. by. He apologized and said, “I hope you come by and give us another try, but (shrugs) your choice. ” All the other reviews suggest I may have caught them on a bad day.

  704. Sameemah Shareef 2018/08

    Food and service was excellent. Totally unexpected! I had veggie flatbread and spinach/ crab dip. The Tempranillo wine and the flourless choc cake. Everything was rich and flavorful. The bldg is old and needs remodeling but you can tell it has history. Had to wait a few while wait staff cleared seating error but apologies all around. It’s on the corner of Foushee and Broad. I had to park two blocks away. Place filled up by the time we left. Probably 2.5 hours for total experience. I’ll definitely be back

  705. Jim Bostick 2018/07

    Great service. Eggplant Stack (think eggplant parm) was excellent.

  706. Judy Gibson 2018/07

    Good food. Interesting location and decor. Excellent service. Highly recommend.

  707. GB34 2018/07

    The music & environment was great, but food (chef salad) was subpar. I’ll give it a second try to redeem itself.

  708. Sharon Brown 2018/07

    Rather normal food and drinks. Bruschetta didn’t have any garlic, tomatoes weren’t chopped and no other seasonings. Fried green tomatoes didn’t have a lot of flavor and the horseradish did not work well. Ambience is cool but as far as food and drink are concerned there are better places to go in Richmond.

  709. TJ Arnaiz 2018/07

    Amazing food and great staff. The bar serves amazing and unique cocktails and the food was excellent. I had the pizza and they did it right, but it paled in comparison with the bread pudding. I definitely enjoyed my meal and felt like a regular as soon as I walked in! I highly recommend them.

    Food was good. Sunday visit. Had to wait a little while. Seemed af if they were short staffed but great experience overall!

  719. Ian Havener 2018/07

    The food was very unimpressive for the price. They did comp one of our meals so that was nice, but it took well over an hour to get are entrees which in my opinion should have been “quick sell food” one was a chicken sandwich the other being an app flatbread pizza… I hate leaving bad reviews but this one is justified, I was very excited based on all the great reviews received by this establishment to take my wife to a lovely date night. Instead our food took forever and once it finally did arrive it was lackluster at best.

  734. Taminator Harrison 2018/06

    Most of the food, drinks & atmosphere was great. Server was super nice, but seemed to forget us a lot. Grits weren’t nearly as good as they had been in the past, but the asparagus omelet & bloody Mary made up for it

    Some of the best chicken and waffles in the city. But it’s syrup that really makes it shine. Other food was good too. Shame they only offer brunch on the weekends. A little overpriced unless you hit up the bar for happy hour where the pricing is quite decent.

I ordered a salad and the manager told me the prices on the menu online wasn’t correct and that they would change it but they didn’t so be careful what u order online cause the prices are wrong

  756. Mike Boss 2018/05

    This is a get-what – you – expect kind of place. It’s neither outstanding nor disappointing and that’s not a bad thing to be. In fact, if you’re looking for a fair price for a bite to eat before a show or after First Friday’s art walk, Tarrant’s Cafe has what might have a monopoly. You’ll find little to complain about or rave about. Sometimes its nice to not be surprised.

    I got the oyster po boy sub and it was fantastic. Rice serving size was a little slim considering how cheap rice is but still good regardless. If you want a lot of bang for your buck on the sides I recommend the sweet potato fries (i only have a third of them on my plate in the picture). Waiter was a taller guy kind of skinny, blonde hair. Excellent service both my girlfriend and I were very impressed. We definitely will be coming back.

    Happy hour specials are amazing! Very friendly and cool wait staff. Food is is okay, I guess. I hate the friend polenta with red sauce, shrimp and scallops. The polenta was good but the sauce was clearly from a jar and they added a TON of olive oil to it. The seafood was so small and clearly frozen. Next time I go, I’ll try something different. Great atmosphere.

    It took an hour and a half to get our order of scrambled eggs and waffles??? And when we did, the waffle was cold and the eggs were over-cooked and hard. What kind of F#$ked up kitchen is this?? If you wish to experience waiting for a VERY long time for meals you can cook yourself in under five minutes, and then end up with food whose quality is barely worthy of Denny’s, then Tarrant’s Cafe is the place for you!

  794. Matt Harvey 2018/03

    Tarrant’s Cafe is great they have big salads that awesome proportions it’s a great place to take a date. If you’re feeling lazy just order from GrubHub like I do. it used to be an old Pharmacy or soda shop and has now been turned into a diner that’s a great place for the locals so people visiting you going headed up to me I would recommend getting a reservation through OpenTable.

    Wife and I went for late brunch. Food took 45 minutes from ordering to arrive. Wife got bananna pancakes, which was good. I got chicken and waffles, except waffle was cold and the chicken was overseasoned and overcooked…it tasted heavily of salt, was dry, and the dark brown coating was very close to being burnt black. Manager appologized and removed the item from the bill.

    Ordered $43.00 meal for delivery. Delivery time was o.k. Food was terrible. 1. Wings were overcooked and tough and not fresh. I ordered plain wings with ranch dressing on the side. Received BBQ wings. French fries were cold and tough. Needless to say everthing went into the trash. Will never order from here again and definitely not recommend. TOM and delivery man was quite nice.

    Excellent service and great atmosphere. The She Crab soup is a must have item. I have enjoyed most everything I have had here.

    The food was OK, but the host told the waiter to, “Seat them in Siberia.” which we thought was funny until we realized that it meant we were sitting directly in front of the kitchen on a floor that was amazingly bouncy every time someone walked by, which was every 10-20 seconds. Either fix your floor, don’t seat people back there, or train your staff to not let your customers know that they are putting them at a table that is awful.

    Such great food and atmosphere! Was given a sample of the She Crab soup and it was so delicious that everyone at the table ordered it! I had the Reuben with sweet patatoe fries. Both were good. The fries had a sprinkle of sugar 🙂

    Terrace Cafe is definitely one of my favorite spots in Richmond. It also has a fantastic atmosphere. You want to take it a person here on a date great idea you may also want to call for reservations just to make sure you get your spot in. Fried chicken and waffles I love them. The spinach dip amazing. The garlic bread keep it coming.

    Very warm and cozy restaurant with friendly staff and an enormous menu. The staff were very knowledgeable of the menu and helpful in making suggestions.

    The blackened fish was cooked perfectly, as was the rissoto, which had a great flavor. The she crab soup had a great flavor and was a large portion for a starter. Be sure to save room for the apple walnut upside down cake with whip cream and ice cream, it was fantastic.

    Huge menu! Food was excellent especially the strawberry shortcake waffle which indeed fed 3 people.

    Had a great work team meal there and got a pretty decent variety of lunch options. Everyone was pleased (even the notoriously picky eaters) and service was prompt and efficient. You cannot go wrong with Tarrant’s.

    Most unique and delicious sandwiches I have ever had. We had the Greek Club and Chicken Melt, both of which were fantastic! French fries were on point and the sweet potato fries were dusted in brown sugar which made them even more phenomenal! If I didn’t live so far away I would come back here a lot. Plus the price was great!

    Food was good, but nothing special. Made a birthday dinner reservation and they put us at a table right next to the kitchen that was covered in fruit flies.

    The building is an old pharmacy which gives it a unique atmosphere. The service was great and there is a huge menu to choose from. I had a pierogi quesadilla that was to die for.

    Interesting food, mediocrely executed. My fried oysters were overcooked.

    Jamie, our waiter, was absolutely fantastic. Despite the restaurant being full, he never once acted rushed and was very attentive. The food was top-notch as well. Awesome atmosphere and experience!

    We made reservations for brunch for 25 people after a Parkinson’s 5k at Innsbrook and they were absolutely amazing to us. The staff came over and asked all of us questions and shared their stories of people they knew that suffer from Parkinson’s. We loved the family atmosphere, great music, and friendly service. Our family and friends that we brought from out of town still rave about the food.

    Highly overrated. I feel that most if not all of their food is over dressed and seasoned. Everything I order comes out different than I expect it to and not in a good way.

    Today for example I added an order of sweet potato fries to a friends order and they arrived covered in sugar. They’re so awful I’m now going to an entirely different restaurant to order fries and get over how irritated I am. The eggs my friends ordered were cooked wrong and the bacon was left out. We also ordered the bread pudding and Oreo cheesecake both were really good although the cheesecake was not Oreo flavored, parts of the chocolate cookie were just pushed into the cheesecake giving a few bites a chocolate flavor. Good but misleading.

    Just seems like they’re riding an old wave and don’t put much effort into creating memorable meals. The ego and prestige this place gets is completely unwarranted. There’s nothing amazing, innovative or creative coming out of there.

    I came here for the first time on a Monday night and had a great experience. Great cocktails for a reasonable price. The server recommended the blackened corvina (a Monday special) and it was delicious and filling. The free bread is really good. My boyfriend and I both loved our drinks, meals, and the atmosphere. We will be back!

    Great food with nostalgic atmosphere. The service was good although they second guessed some of the menu sometimes. Thanks for the experience!
