To our valued guests,
In response to the state wide “stay at home” order we must remain closed until further notice. While its heartbreaking, we do believe this is the best decision for the safety of both our staff and our guests.
Like the rest of the country, we are taking this day by day and are dedicated to persevering. It wont be easy. Restaurants in general operate on very tight margins, and we are no exception. If you want to help please visit our website and purchase a gift card. By doing so you’ll help us with our cash flow issue, and at the same time ensuring you a terrific dinner down the road… a win win for everyone involved!
In the meantime, be kind to the ones around you and stay safe. It will take our entire community working together to get through this unprecedented disaster. We appreciate all the love and support you have shown us over the years, and look forward to welcoming you all back in our dining room sooner than later!

Love,
The Tar & Roses Family

Such a classy place! My favorite spot to take friends for an always fabulous meal. The presentation is so gorgeous and it tastes even better than it looks. And the service is impeccable.

Honestly, everything about this restaurant is perfect! The service, ambiance, and most importantly, the food. We've been there twice, trying different menu options each time and everything was a home run. Can't wait to go back and try more items!

We (two people) ordered the oxtail dumplings, yellowtail crudo, whole branzino, carrots, and the strawberry crostata, and it was a truly pleasant meal! our only regret was not spending the money to get the whole snapper purely for the wow factor...

Delicious food and great service. I did not like my initial wine choice, and the server graciously let me return it and gave me samples of other wines to try before I made a second selection. That's what I call outstanding service!!

I had one of the best steaks that I have eaten, especially considering I was not asked how I wanted it. (It was perfectly cooked.) The starters were expensive but beautifully presented and delicious. The only complaint would be the noise level (I could barely hear the person across the table from me) and the ambience, which should have been a bit cozier. But again, the food was scrumptious. I highly recommend!

Always love the food. Octopus was so tender. We both had duck and the new preparation was delicious. I wish that the menu would change a little more or maybe some daily specials. Love the wait staff. So friendly. The corkage charge at $30.00 is just to much. We’ll always go back for Valentines Day and New Years.

Loved this place. From the moment you walk in you fall in love with the ambience. Food outstanding. The chicken liver mousse was delish as were the grilled octopus skewers. The venison loin was unbelievable. The server also picked out a wine for me that was incredible. Can't wait to go back.

I frequently dine at Tar & Roses - to me and my friends it is one of the best restaurants in the city! Andrew Kirschner's restaurant never disappoints! The "sublime" flavor profiles of the food, which is always creatively prepared and plated is delicious. The wine and beer list is extensive and carefully curated, giving you ample choice to pair them to the eclectic dishes. The waitstaff are knowledgable and attentive and the food is brought to the table at the perfect pace. The hosts are welcoming and Andrew and Johnnie Jenkins, GM - make sure there is not a missed step! The ambience is perfect whether you're having a casual dinner or celebrating a special occasion ! The consistent excellence of this restaurant never ceases to amaze me.

Carly, our server, was over the top, available but left us alone to have our conversation without interruptions.
The fried fish was great, not crazy about the sauce that came with it, I thought it was a bit too sweet.
The sunchokes were ok, nothing special, the mushrooms were good and the mash potatoes were too creamy, not enough potato with the cheese.
With so many restaurants in LA not sure if I would go back again.
