We love Tarrants Cafe and it enjoy for an intimate dinner. The food is wonderful and there are plenty of choices for everyone's taste. The service is generally pretty good and we always leave stuffed and satisfied.

Great atmosphere but the food was just average. Which was a disappointment as I was prepared for the food to be great as per my friends reviews.

The food was delicious. We had a party of 4 and ordered an individual pizza, crabcake sandwich, seafood platter, and baby back ribs. We also ordered a side salad with candied walnuts. Everything was prepared exceptionally well. The ribs were the best I've had. The crabcake sandwich was on an english muffin instead of bread... delicous.

Richmond is loaded with chain restaurants but we prefer local spots and for us Tarrant's is the best for a number of reasons. They have a very large menu with a lot of variety from soups/salads to sandwiches/wraps to entrees and pizza!!! They serve from the same menu at lunch and dinner. Their selections of seafood are outstanding! My favorite sandwiches are the fish tacos and the tilapia reuben. It would be difficult to choose my favorite entree since I have so many!!! They always have a list of specials and sometimes monkfish marsala is on there. I always order it when it's available. It is outstanding!!! There is wonderful pan fried sea bass, salmon, penne pasta with ala Vodka sauce and either shrimp or scallops, flounder, swordfish, the list goes on and on. With each entree you get either soup or salad and two sides. The she crab soup is the best ever. The prices are very reasonable, the service is top notch and the atmosphere is terrific. Reservations are a good idea on the weekends. They are also open for brunch. We go to Tarrant's quite a bit and they always make us feel welcome!

The menu is remarkably extensive with everything from sandwiches to upscale entrees and most everything is done surprisingly well. The service is competent and friendly. Prices are reasonable. The decor is pleasant but ... interesting.
