I love the food at Tarbells. If I only enjoy the atmosphere more I would like the restaurant much more. Always seems a bit crowded. And austere... even when I know they are trying for it not to be.

Great food, some unusual side dishes to enjoy. Have dined twice and would return. Can become noisy if you are sitting in the center table area. Owner Mark is on premises which is a nice, local touch.

My daughter and I took my wife there last night for her birthday. The food and service was very good. The "Fish of the Moment" was swordfish which was excellent. The dessert was great. They wrote "Happy Birthday" in chocolate on her dessert plate which was a nice touch. Will definitely go back again.

We rolled into Phoenix on our cross country trip and just had one night. Our hotel concierge, who was big on local chefs, sent us to Tarbells. We didn't have reservations (at 8 pm on a Saturday night), but there were 2 seats left at the bar. So, we grabbed those seats. We were greeted by the mananger, who was working behind the bar. (Apparently, the Saturday after Christmas was unusually busy for them, and it was "all hands on deck.") Service was great, and he recommended two great meals - the seafood soup and the pasta. He also recommended great wine - a California Cab. Franc. On the subject of wine, the restuarant has a well-structured list that is priced at about two times retail. The restuarant also has a nice bar, including 3 vintages of Pappy Van Winkle bourbon at the time we were there. The pacing was good, and we never felt rushed. If you are looking for a good local, casual dining place in Phoenix, this is a good bet.

NYE dinner and we were very impressed. Staff was very attentive and took care of every need. Owner came by and introduced himself and wished us a Happy New Year. Nice touch. The food...was perfect. Many options and we settled on the salmon and the scallops meals. Perfectly cooked and very delicious. Can't wait to go back again.
