I love this place. The food is really good, and the staff are attentive. It was raining and so all dining was indoors. Tables were well spaced out, and ones that were adjacent to another were split by plexiglass. But when I went, no party was adjacent to another party.

Party of 4 on a Sunday evening. Ordered apps and main courses. No one finished their dishes, there was something just a bit disappointing about everyone's food. One pasta dish was undercooked, the sliced steak had a huge, thick piece of sinew through the center of it which had to be cut around to eat but also, trim the outside gristle to chew. It was just very underwhelming and felt lazy to let a cut of meat like that go out the door. The salted caramel dessert was really no different than a pudding, it was sold to us as being much more unique. I wouldn't bother coming here again, nor would I recommend this to anyone, it was memorable for bad things vs. being neutral enough to forget, which is secondly preferable to being so good I'd recommend. Consider something else unless you're in a bind - and then tread carefully.

Food and service were excellent. We had the octopus appetizer, which was tender and grilled to perfection, then the kale salad, followed by the bronzini and eggplant parmesan. Portions were plentiful and presentation was top notch. If I had to make some constructive criticism, I'd say that the fingerling potatoes showed up in too many dishes, some variety of root vegetables would be appreciated. Lastly, the espresso was a huge watery disappointment, or as my father used to say acqua lorde. Please teach your wait staff how to pull a proper espresso.

Our party of four sat outside on a very comfortable autumn evening recently and it was from start to finish a really enjoyable experience. Our server, Sam, was engaging, inviting and very attentive. The food was very good, the overall experience was enjoyable thanks to the Sam and the folks in the kitchen.

Ate outside where there were more about eight tables on the sidewalk. It worked for us.

Server worked hard. In and out of the building.

Steak, bolognese and eggplant dishes were all very good. Salads are excellent.

Limited menu, but enough choice. Very good wine list.

Very good value.

Able to reserve a spot outside and service was excellent- host to server to staff. Food delicious- partner was a little thrown by the arugula on the pie- Really, I could sit and just eat that focaccia and salad all night. 90 mins exactly right for 3 courses- thank you, Tarry Lodge for a lovely first dinner out since quarantine.

The food is always top notch and service is attentive. From, pasta to pizza to fish and salads - delicious. The portions are plentiful. The only complaint from everyone in our party was about the music. Please change your playlist and turn it down. Something relaxing and not notable would be much better than the odd mix of pop.

I have been to Tarry Lodge in New Haven at least a half dozen times. The food is consistently very good. The menu is simple as it is more noted for the pizza and wine than the entrees. Generally I prefer to have a pasta entrée when I visit here . New Haven is full of great pizzerias. So I and my guests had pasta dishes- Tagliatelle Bolognese for me and another friend and Linguine with clams by another friend. The white bean mixed greens salad is a satisfying starter. We also shared the grilled Octopus which was very flavorful and tender. Half price bottles of wine the evening we were there (Wednesday night) encouraged us to order a bottle. The wines by the bottle here are quite expensive- I would suggest ordering the house wines (ones offered by the glass or as a whole bottle).

Didn’t remember that we were celebrating an anniversary. Most high-end restaurants do something special for customers (like offering a small toast etc.) on such occasions, so that was disappointing.

A little more pared down menu than the original Tarry Lodge in Port Chester. Has it’s own more urban atmosphere. Same delicious pizza and attentive service.

Tarry Lodge is a great place to bring your wife, friends or business associates. The food is always excellent, and the value for what you get is outstanding. The staff is attentive, courteous and helpful making you food choices. I have a hard time hearing, and I could talk and hear, even though the place was full when we were there. It is near the Yale Shops and a good place to catch lunch when shopping in the Yale area.

This was our third time back at Tarry Lodge in the past 6 months and the food is still consistent and super. Despite of my commitment to try something different this time, I had to order Eggplant Parmesan again. The new item we tried this time, Kale salad, was just divine. Kale salad, in general, is not my go-to but kale had the right amount of bitterness and crunch and dressing very light and not over-powering at all. I think it just might become my go-to when I visit Tarry Lodge in the future. The entire staff is very knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing.

Tarry Lodge will continue to be our favorite pre-concert dinner spot for some time to come.
