Welcome back, old friend. After a year off from a fire, it's great to have a reliably good gastronomic experience. Truth be told, I think Santa Monica Yacht Club, T&R's sister next door, might steal the spotlight though!

Went in with an open mind, some items on the menu looked interesting so I was willing to give it a try. This was our 16th anniversary and we had Amanda as our waitress, one word to describe her. Super. We started with popped corn which was interesting with the hint of spicy flavor, then we got the spaghetti with soft egg as a small plate and deep fried snapper for 2 that did not stand a chance when we got through with it. Ended the evening with some coffee and the top two desserts which you can't go wrong with either one. We had the strawberry dessert with honeycomb ice cream and the chocolate tar with sea salt ice cream. Let's just say nothing was left, and will be coming back with more friends this time. BTW, the "damage" wasn't so bad considering all the stuff we had. Thank you for a great evening.

Loved it. We were able to walk in around 6:00 and get a seat at the bar. Love being able to check out all the action while eating. Enjoyed the crudo, shrimp, beet salad, glazed ribs. Very enjoyable.

Came back and did it right this time! Ordered a number of appetizers to share, rather than entrees! Yellowtail Crudo - Amazing, one of our favorites Shellfish Pot - Could not get enough of this!! I could have drank the sauce straight. Or I wish I had rice to go with it. Bruschetta - Good (but I wouldn't order it again) Oxtail Dumplings: We forgot to tell our friends about this one, so it wasn't that memorable obviously Bone Marrow - Wasn't the greatest that I've had - super super fatty Cauliflower - Gotta that those veggies in!

We had dinner at Tar & Roses on Valentine's Day and it was perfect! Apparently, it was booked a few months in advance. We arrived at 8:45 and our table was ready within a few minutes of waiting. Our table was the second to last near the kitchen. Perfect spot to see the live action and how everyone work I love that Tar & Roses didn't do a prix fixe menu. Most restaurants tend to do that on Valentine's night. We were able to order everything off the regular menu. Here's what we ordered: -yellowtail crudo -oxtail dumplings -king trumpet mushrooms -dry aged ribeye We couldn't be more impressed with everything. The food was amazing! The Yellowtail Crudo was fresh and had a spicy kick to it. The oxtail dumplings were so delicious! We could've easily eaten another order! The King Trumpet mushrooms were tender and I loved the soft boiled egg on top. The steak was done beautifully. Medium rare as requested, flavorful, juicy, and tender. We also had a nice bottle of red wine from Napa. We ended our perfect date with the bread pudding and vanilla bean ice cream. Oh, it was incredible! It was soft and warm and not overly sweet. Service was outstanding. I highly suggest checking out Tar & Roses for the next special celebration. Valet parking: $8

Hands down one of my favorite places to go in Santa Monica! The ambiance and decor of the restaurant is amazing. Our server was very helpful in explaining the specials to us and very attentive. My water glass was full the entire meal which was wonderful. The Ox Tail Dumplings is where it's at! It was so delicious! A lot of the restaurants in the Westside don't live up to the hype, but this one does!
