I husband made reservations for 12 of us to celebrate my birthday recently, we had 4 kids with us and I was a little worried the restaurants might not be kid friendly. As soon as we arrived they were ready to seat us but since it was such a nice day I asked if we could eat outside. The host... More

It has been years since we came here and we were looking forward to a special dinner. The ambiance here is wonderful, dimly lit and quiet. Staff is reasonably attentive, however we had to flag down another waiter to help us out when our waiter disappeared. The food was particularly the let down. For what we paid, we had pretty... More

Went for a large group dinner after an all-day corporate event. Zoran was my point of contact and was incredibly flexible with our group size and timing. He went through the ritual of putting together a great menu to choose from while allowing guests to choose off the normal menu as well. Food was great - ambiance was great -... More

Though I've lived in Sunnyvale many years, I have never visited Tarragon. For some reason the name didn't conjure up this lovely place with excellent food. We decided to try Tarragon when my cousin from Virginia was visiting. We were pleasantly surprised at the nice relaxing ambiance, our helpful waitress and the delicious sounding, reasonably priced menu. We all three... More

We walked around early in the day to see what to have for appetizers, drinks and dinner. Decided to come for the octopus and it was soo good! I am giving a 3/5 stars because of the lack of "good" alcohol drinks. Who uses Smirnoff for a martini??? Still is a great vodka and good for everything. And the wait... More

The ambiance is very nice but low key, not bright or loud. i had the lamb loin chops and they were great. We were with a large group and there was plenty of room for everyone. I did not hear any complaints from anyone in the group. The menu has a nice variety of items for different diets.Vegetarian options are... More

None of our 5 choices had this herb in the food and we did not see it on the menu. It left us wondering what we were missing. But then we tasted the food and nothing was missing. This restaurant was spot on with all of our entrees. The service was friendly and competent, although we had to ask several... More

My first at Tarragon for Lunch and it did not disappoint. Their seafood was cooked their tuna was cooked to perfection and their wine selection was quite diverse. Service could have been a bit better maybe because They were quite busy. Will go back for dinner. Definitely recommend it.

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.
