Description: Tarragon Restaurant is the place to gather and enjoy cocktails, beer, wine...
Tarragon Restaurant is the place to gather and enjoy cocktails, beer, wine and HANDCRAFTED FOOD. We simply call it Sunny California Cuisine; "from farm to table" our food is the freshest, seasonal ingredients found right here locally in California supplied by our community of artisans, farmers and purveyors. The food is simple, yet very flavorful allowing the ingredients to take center stage featuring the real Mesquite Grill. However, for lunch, we have a creative traditional menu with many choices from our seasonal offerings in salads, pasta, superb sandwiches and entrees! The diverse and carefully selected 150+ wine list, as well as, 20+ wines by the glass is sure to provide the perfect complement to your meal by the bottle or by the glass. The ambiance of the restaurant, as well as, the banquet room, complements the cuisine and service with just the right combination of sophistication and old-world charm, whether it is the party of two or two hundred, you will be taken care of.

We have been going to Tarragon for many years and have never been disappointed. Whenever we have friends in from out of town, we take them to Tarragon.

Order by 6 pm and you get a three course meal for only $20! Where else can you find a deal like that? And the food is very good.

I've been to Tarragon several times and always enjoy it. I've gone there for work dinners and for meals with my family. The food is consistently very tasty, the atmosphere is nice and the service is good. We were most recently there on New Year's Eve and had a good time.

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.

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.

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.
