I have been going to Tarbell's since it opened, 20 years ago. In addition to an always well-crafted menu and terrific wine selection, the restaurant is one of those places that just has "it." The it in this case being that hard to capture mix of ambience, good clientele, terrific cuisine... and it just feels like home. If you are... More

Tarbell's is/was my go to place for an excellent dining experience. I like to go to a place where I can get dishes that I don't normally fix at home. Last night we (8 people) visited Tarbell's for a birthday occasion. The evening started well with a selection of lower priced wine... a red and white.Amber, our server, was attentive... More

We have been customers at Tarbell's for 14 years and always enjoyed it as have many of our friends. Went back after a few months being away and found many of Mark's best classic dishes are off the menu. Taken off are Scotch Beef, Mark's Moms Mac and Cheese, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Margherita pizza, and the "award winning" hamburger. At... More

Our first time here, and CERTAINLY won't be the last!!! We did a lot of sharing so that we could have many tastes of Chef Mark's table fresh perfectly prepared fare. The super thin wood fired pizza was delicious which was our app., followed by perfectly caramelized scallops plated over top of a scrumptious butternut squash puree with a delicate... More

This restaurant is absolutely amazing. The menu is small and everything is superb on it. Try sashimi appetizer! Great seafood selection and large wine list.

We recently moved to the Phoenix area and were looking forward to eating at this place because it has been highly rated. I think the food is decent, but between the unwelcoming hostess to an unfriendly and unhelpful server, the food could not overcome our overall impression. We weren't starved and so decided to just order two entrees. The server... More

During our 3 week holiday we were becoming disillusioned with the quality of local food I'm afraid - one of the locals recommended this restaurant - thank you. The ambiance was what we've come to expect of a restaurant of this calibre. Service was friendly, attentive and jot too hasty ( a la american standard ) which was a relief.... More
