    We had a delicious dinner with a fabulous wine list. The level of service was OUTSTANDING. Our server was wonderfully patient and helpful while we took our time matching wine pairings with our courses, and always brought extra serving pieces to our table so we could share, with out even asking—he seemed to anticipate our needs. Once I accidentally dropped a fork, and I had barely bent over to pick it up when another staff member swooped in and got it, replacing it within moments. The atmosphere was lively and somewhat noisy—it didn’t bother us, but it may be an issue for some. Seating is cafe style—crisp white tablecloths, tables lined up next to each other, like a French bistro—not the kind of place you go for a dark, quiet booth. We loved it! Great food and a wonderful selection of great wines. We had a fantastic evening, and look forward to going there again.

    Celebrating my husband’s birthday so visiting Tallulah. We arrived 15 minutes early and we were seated at a table right inside the entrance which is also a pathway to the kitchen. Asked for a different location and the manger recovered directing us to the bar seating which was perfect. The service was outstanding with the bartenders, Chelsey and Paris, providing genuine and attentive service all night at a very busy bar. The old fashions were so good! The food was awesome and had a great presentation…try the scallops they are delicious. Highly recommended! We will be back!!

    Tallulah is a lovely staple for us. We enjoy the ambience and the staff. The food is always delicious. We had the halibut, cacio et pepe, mussels, coco shrimp and the Caesar salad yesterday and they were fantastic.

    Do not patronize this place! It’s unfortunate that we have owners and restauranteurs that have built their business model and customer service based on their perceived “loaded”patron. Located in upscale Birmingham, MI they put lipstick on the pig and called it “pretty”. It is not. Tallulah Wine Bar & Bistro blatantly and openly disrespects certain patrons. We made a reservation in advance. On the day of I received a phone call asking about my reservation and was told “just so you know there’s an hour and a half limit, will you be done by then?” I responded saying, “I’m not sure”. To which they replied, “well, just try to be done!” I started to cancel but I wanted to see if it was just a fluke. We arrive, service was interesting, we felt rushed. However, the table next to us full of non-melanated folks were nice and comfortable, they were there before we even arrived, so the hour and a half time limit doesn’t apply to them. They were servicing them very nicely, they even brought over more chairs for others arriving later. Does anyone think that they would call a non-melanated person and advise them prior to their reservation that there is an hour and a half time limit? All other reviews that have stated they felt rushed, this is true. And stated their food was “basic” or just simply “not good”, this is true. And stated they felt melanated patrons were treated differently vs. the others, this is true. Patronize this place at your own risk. I will never return and anyone that asks or even looks like they are thinking of considering this restaurant, I will tell them to spend their money at an establishment that truly cares about their customers and have a passion for what they do vs. those that only care about who they can make the most money off of with a lackluster menu and terrible food.

    The restaurant was unacceptably noisey including the music which while very loud could only hear the annoying pounding beat
