Our first attempt was met with "We are closing" which was surprising, but it was a Monday. We came back on a return visit midweek and it was surprisingly empty which made for a very quiet dinner. The menu selections required some contemplation before we ordered... that allowed a drink first. The wine list is very god and the choice... More

I found the food delightfully delicious, large portions and with plenty of options. The atmosphere is nice and welcoming, I like the way the tables are arranged around the restaurant--not a bad seat in the house.

We needed a place for a group of 17 to eat dinner, & Tarragon accommodated us beautifully. Service for such a large group can be difficult, but they handled it gracefully, efficiently & accurately. The food was excellent, & the location on Murphy St. in Sunnyvale's revived downtown was very charming. Lots of appealing menu choices, with meat, fish &... More

My wife had this Friday off, so as soon as I got home at 445pm, we decided to go to the early bird special at Tarragon. Tarragon is located on Murphy street in the heart of old downtown Sunnyvale. The place has a half price appetizer and drinks special during happy hour, and also an early bird special before 545pm... More

have had luncheon meetings here for 30+ people several times and always impressed with the service and quality. serving steak to the doneness ordered is a tough challenge in large groups, but this crew has it mastered. portions are generous, real fresh vegies, and a nice wait staff. It's all good!

Have eaten here a couple of times. Tarragon has a great menu and really good chef's specials every night. I had the rack of lamb, really good. Healthy choices with nice fresh veggies for me.

I was there twice this week. The first time was very good and on that basis, I went back for more. The second time, unfortunately, was nowhere near as good. I won't comment about the quality of the filet, the smell, or that it was cut along the grain, and I won't comment about the attitudes of the manager or... More

Good menu, Delicious food, and good ambiance. If you are looking for a bit of a upscale place to have dinner, that need to give Tarragon a try. Is a bit more classy then jean and T-Shirt type of place, although you can usually see all types of dress partaking in meals. They also have an early bird special menu,... More

Nice service and good menu, with much variety. Especially the "early bird" specials. Even worthy of special occasions.

I was in the area on business and to catch up with my best friend over a good meal. Neither of us had been to this establishment, took a walk down Murphy Street with no plan or reservation...and what a great find this was! The manager gave us a warm greeting and we opted for a bar table. The bartender... More
