I've been to Tarragon many times. Most recently I took my team there for dinner and none of them had been before. Everyone liked the decor and enjoyed their meals. Based on the waiter's recommendation I had the rotisserie chicken. I usually like an interesting sauce on chicken but I tried it and it was really good! The service was... More

I visited several times this week while on business. Happy hour menu has good options: octopus, coconut shrimp, stuffed mushrooms, salmon flatbread so the place is packed early. If you can get a seat, service is slow. Not enough help for the rush. That's on management. Most are willing to tolerate the service to get the happy hour pricing.

Great for appetizer and happy hour. Sit at the bar if possible. Get there early if it's concert season downtown. Like the drinks and staff. Apps are good.

We usually have a great dinner and attend a lecture. The food is fresh, the bar is good and the service is really fine. They are fast, and know how to work when there is a program going on so as not to interrupt the guests.

We've eaten hear on numerous occasions and have never had a meal that was less than excellent. Service is great, too. Holiday prix fixe meals are a special treat and, although the restaurant can be crowded, you never feel pressed by the crowd and there is never a slack in the attentive service.

I visited on a Monday night for dinner. It has been a while since my last visit. I was seated and greeted promptly. I don't remember seeing the octopus on the appetizer menu in previous visits so I tried that. It was excellent. They have a limited menu of options without mashed potatoes so I opted for the halibut special... More

I showed up for an early dinner after traveling from the east coast. I was offered the early bird special which I was on the verge of getting because you have salad and dessert included for somewhere around $20 which was great (and discounted drinks!). I opted for the stuffed chicken breast and it was AMAZING! I couldn't stop eating,... More

We waited almost an hour to receive our entrees, which tasted very good but not excellent. The waitperson did not seem sufficiently attentive to keep us informed of the progress, but the other wait staff seemed very nice and attentive (serving water, etc.)
