Success! Thanks for posting your review of Tamarine Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Nice but the price

Given I'm from South East Asia, I'm a bit critical of the restaurant. I thought the ambience was nice. Food is good but not great. \r \r It's probably a nice place for business trip, if you go there for food, I will go to some other South East Asian restaurants that offer that offer the same thing for a fraction of the price. Will go there on business only.

Good food, Shady business practice

Had a prepaid group function at the restaurant for work, which tends to mean that opened but unconsumed wine gets taken home by guests or hosts, as they have been paid for. When the party was over, 1 server claimed that the restaurant had a policy of not giving the wine out?! Another server claimed that there were no partially consumed bottles left. I had just seen one that was about half full, and there were no ... view more

Poor customer service; poor management response; ill prepared staff

I have been going to Tamarine and Bongsu (both owned by the same people) entertaining clients. At a client lunch today, we experienced something that you never believe would happen to you. One of my guests, choked on a piece of meat and would have died, had it not been for a wonderful gentleman diner who was also having lunch. The hostess who looks miserable and treats every guests dreadfully just looked at us as i... view more

What I liked: The ambience, the mushroom soup (vegetarian), tamarine prawns-succulent, sea bass-cooked to perfection, creme brulee, excellent service\r \r What I disliked: Lava cake-tasted like right out of the microwave.\r \r Comments: Received excellent wine recommendation from the bartender. Fixed price menu (3 course-$60/head)-worth the money. For NYE, should have included complimentary glass of champagne.\r... view more

fantastic Vietnamese fusion cuisine

Our lunch did not start off on the best note. We did not have reservations and the hostess, who we all agreed was snooty, treated us like she was doing us a favour by sitting us at the ""one remaining table in the back room."" As it turned out, there were three other open tables in this very same room and they remained open throughout our entire lunch. What a joke! \r \r Anyway, the food at Tamarine is the real sta... view more

can't wait to come back here again

I have eaten at this restaurant three times. Everytime I come back, it has always tasted better than the last time. I am looking forward to the next time I get a chance to go there again.

Oh Tamarine

It is good for Palo Alto to have an upscale restaurant that ISN'T owned or run by Wolfgang Puck. Tamarine is that upscale restaurant. The service, while faltering at times, is great overall. The food is exceptional. Special dishes include Basil Tofu and Signature Tamarine Prawns. The Vegetable dishes are better than some critics credit them. The menu variety is excellent. Now, for superb Vietnamese, one doesn't have ... view more

Don't make the same mistake we did

We went to Tamarine for our anniversary because it was listed as ""Romantic"" and got good reviews on the food quality and service. The other reviewers must have gone to a different restaurant than we did!!! The tables in the main dining room are packed in so tightly that I was literally sitting closer to the 2 people on either side of me than to may date- even considering the small cramped size of the table betwee... view more
