Mexico, home of Talavera, the unique fine art pottery from the 16th Century, native of the city of Puebla.


This genuine and refined Mexican spirit of the Talavera art sets the ground for the spirit of our menu. From the "Huarache" grill, a series of delicate dishes served on a corn tortilla base, to a variety of regional specialties from Sonora to Oaxaca, from Michoacan to Puebla, from Jalisco to Yucatan.

Talavera, the art of a genuine and refined taste of Mexico.

Excellent service and food! This was our first outing after the Covid-19 pandemic began in March and the team at Talavera was very welcoming and did a great job of putting us at ease not only with distancing tables but also taking all necessary sanitary precautions for their diners.

Surprisingly poor. Tasteless seviche. No lime or lemon juice, onion barely avocado. Didn't taste the onion, fish was very soft. Then ordered the carne asada a la Talavera and it was presented well done when we had ordered one medium and one medium-rare. Waiter changed it and brought us medium-well. Wasn't worth the $27.00. Will try again. I have eaten there better.

The front Hostess was kind, friendly and organized. The server was nice gentlemen but too busy socializing with wait staff and in hurry to get order. We mentioned vegetarians to hostess who indicated of course there were option and speak with server. He was not helpful other than pointing to what's available but nothing more, nothing less. He didn't even know names of whiskeys available for traditional old fashioned. The owner/manager had to tell him when he overheard the our conversation.

We asked for the chicken enchiladas minus the chicken and he said he'd asked the kitchen. Um what?! Isn't the food made fresh?

Beautiful restaurant but he felt rushed and he was in rushed headspace because I guess he felt the faster he moved, the busier he appeared.

I loved this restaurant. Stopped in with a visiting friend for lunch. As a picky eater with a small appetite, I ordered Enchiladas Suizas and loved them. I even almost finished the entire plate of food! Would definitely come back again!

El lugar en si es bello y bien decorado!
Puntos a mencionar... la persona que nos atendió al principio en la mesa un Sr. Jose muy amable en su trato al principio. De repente su actitud cambio para mal y asignaron a otra persona (mujer) que no puse atención a su nombre. Ella si muy amable hasta el final del servicio.
La musica ambiental cuando llegamos totalmente fuera de lugar! Música pop en Ingles 😳 Hicimos una sugerencia amablemente que si podían de perdida poner música en Español por ser un Rest Mexicano, accedieron a la sugerencia. En una de esas ocasiones que fui a los baños oí al Sr Jose quejarse algo molesto con otros de los meseros que ya no sabía que hacer si cada cliente pedía música diferente. Mi sugerencia respetuosa es de que estandaricen la música ambiental a algo en Español y no en Ingles. Y que se mencionen a los clientes que no hay control de cambiar la música y así ya no se hieren susceptibilidades
Respecto a la comida se pidió unos tacos de carne de res que dejaron mucho que desear. Carne seca y prácticamente sin sabor.
Me esperaba algo mejor definitivamente.

Saludos cordiales y respetuosos.

We eat here whenever in town. Chips and salsa great. Caesar salad had a mexican flare and was good too. Carne asada was initially very rare, but they grilled it more for us and it was fine.

Excellent- very authentic Mexican food.
We ordered a whole bunch of different things for the table to try — grilled fish/snapper, steaks, chicken, vegetables, soup, fresh guacamole—- everything was amazing and different than anything at typical Mexican restaurant.
Also the drinks were superb - best Mojito (and that’s saying a lot.)
Also great Mezcal!

Service was top notch —- 😊
