We have been to Tarragon many times, including New Years Eve, by ourselves and with friends visiting it for the first time. We have found the service and food to be consistent and have never had a bad experience. The ambiance is quiet and leans toward one associated with fine dining. In the front right is a bar/lounge area and... More

It was for St. Patrick's day. Corned beef and cabbage was wonderful. It was tender and juicy and cabbage perfectly cooked and the special price was welcomed. Have been there several times and always feel welcomed.

I like th food in Tarragon, feels fresh and a bit upscale in a nice setting. The early bird dinners are a very good value.

A group of eight went for the Early Bird dinner during the week. There are so many entree choices and the price is excellent. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was terrific. We went back and again enjoyed it a lot. A great value and delicious food. The ambiance was very nice and not too noisy.

I'm amazed that this place is never packed when I've dined there. The food is very good, the atmosphere pleasant, price point very reasonable. Frequently has live music. It's an often missed, under appreciated gem in my opinion!

I had a nice quick lunch there with nice service, comprised only in a salad and desert. We were surprised by the limited portion size given the price, but the dedicated service, since we were alone on the terrace, made up for the disappointment.

It’s great to hear your lunch hit the spot! There’s nothing better than a relaxing meal outside on a nice day, right? I’m sorry that you found our prices a bit high, though -- we’re only serving up the highest quality ingredients, so it’s important that we price accordingly. That said, we also offer a really great Early Bird menu,... More

A large group; the food was great and the service was excellent. My citrus salad with salmon was fresh and the salmon was perfect. A great meal with a glass of the house merlot.

There are so many restaurants in the local South Bay area that we could go to a different one each time we go out to dinner. That being said, we purposefully returned to Tarragon.

Nestled in Silicon Valley’s Sleepy-esque hollow of Sunnyvale resides a noteworthy eatery and watering hole named “Tarragon.” Tarragon affords a remarkably refreshing balance between that charming ambience so often encountered in nicer establishments of its sort and that illusive, breathable atmosphere one hopes bravely to find. Tarragon’s culinary coterie competes with “the very best of them,” while its serving staff... More
