                                                        We had a very good experience at Tallulah. Nice variety of menu items to satisfy gluten free, vegetarian and regular diets. The Italian lemon cake for dessert was outstanding - fresh and lite. The NY strip was good but somewhat bland. Needed some additional seasoning in my opinion. Excellent wine list. Overall very good experience. Would definitely go back.

                                                        After being away for the winter, we were so happy to return to Tallulah and we were rewarded. Not only was the food excellent, as usual, but Jolla, our server made the experience perfect, and Mario, the owner recommended a wine that was amazing. The pork chop was every bit as good as it always has been and the seared tuna appetizer was exceptional. The salmon was also perfectly prepared and the whole experience was memorable. We can't wait to come back soon.

                                                        Perfection is the most accurate description of our experience at Tallulah. The service provided by Valentina was superb! She was patient, knowledgeable and made fantastic recommendations. The food was prepared perfectly and sensation-able. We enjoyed the mushroom appetizer, octopus (the whipped feta most likely comes from heaven), broccolini, mushroom tortellini and the chicken. From the moment you walk in till you walk out, you’re treated like family. No matter the occasion, I would highly recommend dining at Tallulah.

                                                        Tallulah is our new “go-to” neighborhood restaurant. We’re delighted we found it after walking past it many times and vowing to visit. It’s a perfect blend of small and intimate, sophisticated and relaxed. The food and service is top/notch.

                                                        Overall delicious dinner especially the mussels and dessert. Very attentive server. The steak and pomme frites was disappointing. The fries were average and the plating was not appealing. The other dishes were fine.

                                                        Lovely experience dining here for our Valentine's Day dinner out. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed everything, from the food to the service to the ambiance! You can't go wrong with this place. The attention to detail is amazing, and all their meat and produce are ethically, sustainably, and when possible, locally sourced. I had the broccolini and mushroom tortellini. My husband got the mushroom appetizer special and the pork chop. It was all outstanding! Didn't have room for dessert, but would definitely have loved to have tried something from their menu. Go here! Lives up to the hype!

                                                        I really like this restaurant but I was disappointed in the service. Slow service and not attentive. We needed to ask other servers for our drinks and to order appetizers. The order was also incorrect and she did not correct this on our bill.

                                                        This was our first visit, and while the hostess barely turned around to greet us and frankly was unwelcoming, the dining room staff were very nice. George, our waiter was outstanding, attentive, and clearly was knowledgeable about the menu. He was pleasant, welcoming and genuinely pleased to learn this was our first visit and shared with us a bit of the back story of Tallulahs. His service was spot on! The menu is very nice mix with scrumptious sounding daily specials. Our salad, soup, and entrees were delicious and beautifully presented. The atmosphere is very nice, and most importantly conducive to conversation with dining companions! Tallulahs is a gem! Looking forward to introducing this restaurant to friends in the future!
