We always have a positive experience at Tarry Lodge in New Haven. My favorite is always Eggplant Parm. It never disappoints. Delicious!!! We went with another couple and we were able to talk and were able to stay as long as we wanted. Love Tarry Lodge

Normally great food and great service just weird seating this night. They did accommodate a seat switch . Just seemed like we were on top of other couples when there was a lot of open room even when we left

My wife ordered salmon and they brought branzino instead with our other two meals. Waited 10 minutes to get her salmon which was served like raw sushi.

Restaurant refuses to offer any discount because they accused my wife of eating some of the salmon. And she did eat enough of it to realize it was raw.

Was my favorite restaurant to go to when visiting new haven but no longer.

Great server. Very accomodating. The kitchen cooked my party the wrong pizza and she arranged to immediately replace it with the correct pizza.

We have eaten at several different Tarry Lodges over the years. The New Haven Lodge is convenient to Yale Repertory Theatre, and we were delighted to get an early table. Because of bad weather we arrived late, but we were graciously accommodated and our meals came promptly, so we had time to enjoy coffee and still walk over with plenty of time to spare. Our waiter was exceptional, advising us on dishes that would be ready relatively quickly and making sure they arrived promptly.
The kale Caesar salad was generous, very fresh and delicious. We shared salad and Butternut Squash Caponata, topped with luscious Buratta cheese—sweet and pungent, accompanied by perfectly grilled toast for the cheese. An unexpected and outstanding dish!
The pasta dishes were also terrific: Bolognese and black fettuccine with shrimp, fennel and chorizo. There was enough left to take home for another meal. We were well sated, and the excellent coffee finished the meal perfectly.
It was an altogether experience!

I have been to Tarry Lodge many times . The past few times I have went the food has tasted bland . We had 6 in our group and no one was happy with their food . Service is outstanding . Ambience is great . I just don’t know what has happened to the great tasting dishes .

I met with my college roommate after 30 years. So it was a reunion occasion with a lot to catch up. The restaurant knew and arranged for a quiet corner for us. Our waitress gave us as much privacy as possible but made sure our meal progress at the same time as we were heading to a concert at Woolsy Hall after. We had salad and salmon. Everything was delicious. Thank you! We will be back!!

Always delightful and delicious, Tarry Lodge New Haven is perfect for any and all occasions. The menu is varied and has something for everyone. Some dishes like the grilled octopus, are the best in the area. The new prix fixe menu is a very good deal.

The service is worthy of a fine restaurant anywhere: expert, friendly, engaged, and charming.

I have never had a bad experience at Tarry Lodge, I would recommend getting there if you have never tried it.

I had only dined at Tarry Lodge once before and had an 'ok' experience, food-wise. This most recent experience was better all-around and I would definitely return. Service was good on both occasions.

Our server was very friendly and the food was delicious. We had an enjoyable experience.

Criticisms:
- Though not unheard of, a glass of the least expensive sparkling wine/champagne is very pricey (we paid $11 per glass)
- Desserts are also overpriced. ($10 for a scoop of vanilla ice cream with a shot of espresso)
- Being totally blunt, the most memorable/worst part of this experience was the WHISTLING by staff members! I think two gentlemen were involved. It was sporadic, but enough to annoy (there is already background music, I don't desire background whistling on top of that). The restaurant is relatively small in size, so the audible whistling behind my head made me want to throw my fork. I was on the cusp of saying something and would have had there been a super convenient opportunity. Whistling implies a happy employee with surely no negative intent, but it also implies a bit of inconsideration for the people around!

The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. I feel I’m surrounded family who want to ensure nit only good good but a pleasurable experience.
I was dining with six year old granddaughter and it could not have been nicer. Food was fabulous too.

Love this restaurant because of the food service and great wine list ( so sad they may close the Tarrytown location) but we will just have to keep visiting the New Haven location

Delicious food, both staples (the bucatini) and special (olive oil soft serve with fennel pollen). Sam was an excellent server in every way: attentive, friendly, recommendations/guidance — you name it, she was “I’d ask fo be seated in her section again”-level.

Great service, very attentive. Somewhat expensive vibe list with a few decent exceptions. Slightly undercooked pasta although it is al dente and I should have asked to make it less al dente before head( new culpa). Plenty of parking on the street on Sunday night. Hospitable place and overall good value in an upscale setting
