This is a wonderful place that mixes south and old homey charm. Food is innovative and southern but not heavy. Went on Easter and it was well run and food was really good. Would definitely go back.

Went to Tarrants for restaurant week. The food, service, and cleanliness was exceptional. Everything we tried was excellent! I would highly recommend it, especially for pre-theater since it is so close. They had valet parking, which was also a plus. Very trendy little place with a traditonal southern/seafood menu. The desserts were also excellent!

The only reason I didnt give it five stars is because the tables in the back for large parties are almost too close together. It was also very hot, not sure if they were having a/c issues.

I eat out in Richmond a great deal and take pride trying a number of different eateries. Without peer, Tarrant's is my favorite location in Richmond. A great variety on the menu that can please any palate; an atmosphere that has been carefully constructed to make you feel special; and an amazingly team oriented service staff that provide prompt and pleasant service. Not only is it my favorite, but I recommend it to any of my business colleagues who are entertaining guest from out of town.

Not in the greatest area of town, but within walking distance from the Jefferson. Great waitress, cozy & relaxing ambiance, wonderful meal, no rush, prices reasonable. My daughter had salmon & I had scallops - both cooked to perfection. Definitely would eat here again.
