Able to reserve a spot outside and service was excellent- host to server to staff. Food delicious- partner was a little thrown by the arugula on the pie- Really, I could sit and just eat that focaccia and salad all night. 90 mins exactly right for 3 courses- thank you, Tarry Lodge for a lovely first dinner out since quarantine.

The food is always top notch and service is attentive. From, pasta to pizza to fish and salads - delicious. The portions are plentiful. The only complaint from everyone in our party was about the music. Please change your playlist and turn it down. Something relaxing and not notable would be much better than the odd mix of pop.

I have been to Tarry Lodge in New Haven at least a half dozen times. The food is consistently very good. The menu is simple as it is more noted for the pizza and wine than the entrees. Generally I prefer to have a pasta entrée when I visit here . New Haven is full of great pizzerias. So I and my guests had pasta dishes- Tagliatelle Bolognese for me and another friend and Linguine with clams by another friend. The white bean mixed greens salad is a satisfying starter. We also shared the grilled Octopus which was very flavorful and tender. Half price bottles of wine the evening we were there (Wednesday night) encouraged us to order a bottle. The wines by the bottle here are quite expensive- I would suggest ordering the house wines (ones offered by the glass or as a whole bottle).

Didn’t remember that we were celebrating an anniversary. Most high-end restaurants do something special for customers (like offering a small toast etc.) on such occasions, so that was disappointing.

A little more pared down menu than the original Tarry Lodge in Port Chester. Has it’s own more urban atmosphere. Same delicious pizza and attentive service.

Tarry Lodge is a great place to bring your wife, friends or business associates. The food is always excellent, and the value for what you get is outstanding. The staff is attentive, courteous and helpful making you food choices. I have a hard time hearing, and I could talk and hear, even though the place was full when we were there. It is near the Yale Shops and a good place to catch lunch when shopping in the Yale area.

This was our third time back at Tarry Lodge in the past 6 months and the food is still consistent and super. Despite of my commitment to try something different this time, I had to order Eggplant Parmesan again. The new item we tried this time, Kale salad, was just divine. Kale salad, in general, is not my go-to but kale had the right amount of bitterness and crunch and dressing very light and not over-powering at all. I think it just might become my go-to when I visit Tarry Lodge in the future. The entire staff is very knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing.

Tarry Lodge will continue to be our favorite pre-concert dinner spot for some time to come.

My wife ordered salmon and they brought branzino instead with our other two meals. Waited 10 minutes to get her salmon which was served like raw sushi.

Restaurant refuses to offer any discount because they accused my wife of eating some of the salmon. And she did eat enough of it to realize it was raw.

Was my favorite restaurant to go to when visiting new haven but no longer.

We have eaten at several different Tarry Lodges over the years. The New Haven Lodge is convenient to Yale Repertory Theatre, and we were delighted to get an early table. Because of bad weather we arrived late, but we were graciously accommodated and our meals came promptly, so we had time to enjoy coffee and still walk over with plenty of time to spare. Our waiter was exceptional, advising us on dishes that would be ready relatively quickly and making sure they arrived promptly.
The kale Caesar salad was generous, very fresh and delicious. We shared salad and Butternut Squash Caponata, topped with luscious Buratta cheese—sweet and pungent, accompanied by perfectly grilled toast for the cheese. An unexpected and outstanding dish!
The pasta dishes were also terrific: Bolognese and black fettuccine with shrimp, fennel and chorizo. There was enough left to take home for another meal. We were well sated, and the excellent coffee finished the meal perfectly.
It was an altogether experience!

I met with my college roommate after 30 years. So it was a reunion occasion with a lot to catch up. The restaurant knew and arranged for a quiet corner for us. Our waitress gave us as much privacy as possible but made sure our meal progress at the same time as we were heading to a concert at Woolsy Hall after. We had salad and salmon. Everything was delicious. Thank you! We will be back!!

Always delightful and delicious, Tarry Lodge New Haven is perfect for any and all occasions. The menu is varied and has something for everyone. Some dishes like the grilled octopus, are the best in the area. The new prix fixe menu is a very good deal.

The service is worthy of a fine restaurant anywhere: expert, friendly, engaged, and charming.

What more could ou want?

I had only dined at Tarry Lodge once before and had an 'ok' experience, food-wise. This most recent experience was better all-around and I would definitely return. Service was good on both occasions.

Our server was very friendly and the food was delicious. We had an enjoyable experience.

Criticisms:
- Though not unheard of, a glass of the least expensive sparkling wine/champagne is very pricey (we paid $11 per glass)
- Desserts are also overpriced. ($10 for a scoop of vanilla ice cream with a shot of espresso)
- Being totally blunt, the most memorable/worst part of this experience was the WHISTLING by staff members! I think two gentlemen were involved. It was sporadic, but enough to annoy (there is already background music, I don't desire background whistling on top of that). The restaurant is relatively small in size, so the audible whistling behind my head made me want to throw my fork. I was on the cusp of saying something and would have had there been a super convenient opportunity. Whistling implies a happy employee with surely no negative intent, but it also implies a bit of inconsideration for the people around!
