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.

This was a special occasion with my wife's birthday so I treated her to dinner that I knew she would really like and she did. We went early with my sister and her boyfriend for the happy hour half off drinks and appetizers. We shared a nice bottle of wine (half off) and had stuffed mushrooms and baked brie with... More

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. Not only that but we will go back again. It's just a really nice restaurant with well cooked foods, great ambiance, interesting décor, and efficient wait... More

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

I have eaten here a number of times. My wait time has ever been long, and the staff were always professional. My food order was always correct and arrived in a decent amount of time. I would recommend Tarragon anytime

I had the lasagne which was somewhat made in the European style (bechamel.) Sauce was good but the pasta was gummy: sent it back. The service is excellent.

We visited early on a Saturday night and had to wait for table despite the place being less than half full. Bar tender was slow to get an order. Once the place started to fill, it was clear that they did not have enough waitresses to adequately cover the tables. Service was slow. My wife had the prime rib and... More

Tarragon has the whole package - great food, great service and reasonable prices. On-street parking is a challenge, but there is a large lot directly behind that is easy to use.
