Tarry Lodge - any recent experiences?

MisterBill2 | Sep 23, 2010 06:01 PM

I hate to start a new thread but the old Tarry Lodge thread has over 200 posts and I am sure this would get lost in it. Anyway, I just made dinner reservations at Tarry Lodge and was reading the reviews on OpenTable and some of the recent ones have not been particularly good (some for food and some for service). To be fair, there were more good ones than bad but I am a little concerned that they've slipped. My wife and I are being taken out to dinner and the person asked for a reasonably priced restaurant, so I picked Tarry Lodge because we've enjoyed our meals there in the past, and the person taking us turns out to be a Mario Batali fan so he was thrilled with my choice. But I do not want to be disappointed, nor do I want the person paying for our dinner to be. I know there have always been a few negative reviews for TL here but I saw what I thought was more than usual on OT.

On a related topic, when I made the reservation (for a Tuesday night in October), they did not have anything available for 3 people between 6:15 and 7. If I changed the number of guests to 2 or 4 they had all times available. I'm not sure if it's Tarry Lodge trying to maximize their revenue or OpenTable having some strange booking criteria (I don't know how their system works) but it seems pretty unreasonable to claim that there are no tables available for 3 on a weeknight if they have one available for 4.
