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.

My wife and I went with 2 other couples and everyone was extremely satisfied with their dinners
I have never had a bad experience at Tarry Lodge, I would recommend getting there if you have never tried it.

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!

The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. I feel I’m surrounded family who want to ensure nit only good good but a pleasurable experience.
I was dining with six year old granddaughter and it could not have been nicer. Food was fabulous too.

Love this restaurant because of the food service and great wine list ( so sad they may close the Tarrytown location) but we will just have to keep visiting the New Haven location

Delicious food, both staples (the bucatini) and special (olive oil soft serve with fennel pollen). Sam was an excellent server in every way: attentive, friendly, recommendations/guidance — you name it, she was “I’d ask fo be seated in her section again”-level.

Great service, very attentive. Somewhat expensive vibe list with a few decent exceptions. Slightly undercooked pasta although it is al dente and I should have asked to make it less al dente before head( new culpa). Plenty of parking on the street on Sunday night. Hospitable place and overall good value in an upscale setting

Food was excellent and I am picky! The steak was fantastic and I asked for the Brussels sprouts to be prepared without honey and they were truly fantastic. Cooked perfectly!

Another memorable dining: the pasta dishes were all fantastic (Bucatini Al’amatriciana, Black Fettucine, Cacio E Pete), as well as the pork belly special. The server, Adrienne, was knowledgeable and attentive.

Will go back whenever in New Haven.

Absolutely fabulous experience. We came here the night we got engaged and then returned for an "engagement anniversary." They treated us incredibly well and made us feel truly special -- they even remembered exactly where we sat the night we got engaged. Thank you for making us feel like we're on top of the world.

Food and service are always exceptional. Pizza (Goat Cheese, pistachios and honey) is an epiphany. Spaghetti alla Carbonara made with Guanciale is as close to Rome as you'll get in the states (except that they add garlic). Eggplant and Short Rib are stand-outs. Server was prompt, polite, professional and personable. Only downside of the place is that it's small and seating is tight. That cuts both ways as we met an absolutely delightful German lady and her daughter who is attending Yale on one side, and 4 young ladies on the other side celebrating a birthday.... and taking a LOT of pictures.... no so delightful. Having said all that, go; it's worth the trip.

This has been our “go to” restaurant in New Haven for several years. It is always consistently good. The service is definitely outstanding. It is somewhat overpriced but usually worth it. New Haven is generally overpriced with Yale being there.

Our dinner was a wonderful experience. I told the restaurant beforehand that my boyfriend was celebrating his 50th birthday and they went above and beyond. The service was amazing and the food was delicious. They gave us the best table in the house! The wine was outstanding. I need more of that almond ricotta cheesecake. Thanks for a wonderful evening!
