We have been to Talley's twice
We have been to Talley's twice in the last month and both times had great food and good service. The menu is diverse and the portions just right. My husband had the bone in ribeye and said it was better than the $50 steaks at the downtown steak joints. I had fish both times I was there and it was very good on both occasions. The bread pudding is rich but yummy. Definitely a neighborhood gem with an upscale and delicious menu.

Friendly neighborhood spot, I'm sorry we didn't go later since they had entertainment at 900 pm that I hadn't known about.

We've eaten at Talley's several
We've eaten at Talley's several times, and are working are way through the menu, and everything we've tried has been delicious. So far my favorite entree is the scallops, but the short ribs I had on my last visit will become a seasonal favorite.

Always a good meal
We've been going to Talley's and its predecessor restaurant for several years. We absolutely love the $10 steak special on Tuesdays and the 1/2 price wine night on Wednesdays. My last 2 visits I've had the spicy Grouper dish which has more flavor than any seafood dish in New Orleans.

Food was good the appetizer
Food was good the appetizer portions were extremely tine for a table of four. The price also did not fit the portions.

A great place to sit and chat
A great place to sit and chat and dine on really tasty food. The service was impeccable and it might very well be a hot spot, but I am judging it by being there on a Sunday when it was busy, but not overly crowded.

I found the restaurant online
I found the restaurant online and it is in the neighborhood great wine selection and we had the steak special good value Waiter Adam was fabulous and good dessert selection

Excellent meal at Talley's. Everything we ordered was very flavorful. They changed up the menu a bit since the last time I was there, but they still had my favorites. The complimentary baked breadsticks alone are worth the trip there. My filet was on a bed of mashed potatoes that were so creamy and smooth they could have been a main dish! Wait staff is outstanding and attentive. Recommended a micro-brew to my husband and seemed very knowledgeable--the beer was perfect. I order a margarita every time I go here and the glass sizes are never consistent, but the flavor is. I highly recommend Talley's.

Definitely a neighborhood gem
We've been to Talley's several times since it changed hands. It was a pretty good place under the previous management, and it's gotten better. It's still a great place for steaks (Allen Bros, yes!) or chops. Bring the kids early or come for date night later. It's not a big space, but it's got a comfortable and mellow vibe.
And my kids would insist that I mention there's cotton candy for dessert. Yeah, cotton candy.

Mother's Day success
We were thrilled to go back to Talleys for Mother's Day and excited to take my parents With us. As always, the service was spot on, the food was amazing and we had a great time. We even were given a bottle of wine because we were moms! I love our local eatery and will continue to rave about it to friends and neighbors!!!

quaint little place
We have frequented Tally's Kitchen numerous times this year. It is a quaint little place that prepares gourmet food and appetizers. Tally's Kitchen is where we go when we are stumped to choose a restaurant or do not have a craving for something particular. We have never been disappointed.
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Never a disappointment!
I love to introduce my friends to Talley's. The food and service are always great and their $10 Steak night is always a treat!
5/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Positive dining experience
Open table incorrectly listed last seating, however, Talley's Kitchen called me to discuss alternatives before it was too late.
This means they are on top of building a clientele.
The ambience is very nice, the food is delicious, and the wait staff pleasantly polite and present.
I will recommend this as an excellent neighborhood restaurant.
I was there on a Thursday evening, the sound was low and i could actually have a conversation with my guest.

Great meals for a good price!
Great meals for a good price! Tuesdays are $10 steaks and Wednesdays are 1/2 bottles of wine. The menu is diverse but has simple options like flatbreads or burgers. I love the short rob grilled cheese and the Asian tacos!
Servers are knowledgable and nice!
6/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dont miss this great little find!!!
This is the best neighborhood find! The food is simple but excellent and so reasonably priced. We go there for a nice atmosphere (sometimes a little noisy with the tables so close) to get treated well and have an excellent meal.

Definitely a Gem!
Talley's is a wonderful small restaurant that is great every time we go! Favorite menu items are always on point and specials are.... special. It's a perfect place for a weeknight dinner and ideal for something special too. The servers are friendly and they are a stable crew who treat customers personally. It's quiet and perfect for couples but comfortable for families with kids as well. Somehow, Talley's has managed to get it together to satisfy a wide swath of customers with varying tastes. Great place! Great job, Talley's!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Talley's always has such great food. This wasn't my first visit and it certainly won't be my last. The buffalo shrimp was phenomenal. The shrimp were really fresh and the flavor of the sauce was sweet and spicy, the best combination. It was a Tuesday so we had the $10 steak and fries. You can't be that deal. The steak was tender and perfectly cooked. The drinks were delicious as well and priced accordingly. A very delicious and reasonably priced meal. Can't wait to go back!!
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our favorite place!
We've tried almost everything on the menu and love it all! Some of our favorites are the tuna app, Asian tacos, and beer can chicken. Her soups are phenomenal as well; especially the corn chowder! Save room for the amazing gelato!

This was a great experience.
This was a great experience. Their drinks were wonderful and the staff was bright, friendly and warm. The food was outstanding. Perfectly cooked to order. The five of us we raving on how each steak was cooked to perfection, from rare to medium-well. We will be back, again and again and again.

Fun local place
We went to Tally's during the week and received half-priced wine (bottle). The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. We will return to try new dishes. Very fun local restaurant.

A nice surprise
We ended up at Tally's because we couldn't get a table at the restaurant we had planned to go to. That turned out to be a lucky break for us. The food was excellent; of special note were the scallops and port tenderloin. The pork wing and tenderloin tidbit appetizers were also great. Nice touch - cotton candy for dessert (but watch out for that market price). Not inexpensive, but reasonably priced for the quality and uniqueness of the dishes. Service was great too. We definitely recommend Tallys.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Finally, this one should stick!
Talley's is a definite treat! While it's family friendly, the atmosphere is definitely more refined than your average family hot spot. Our server was such a doll and entirely knowledgeable about the menu and preparation overall of the food and drinks. Each course was melt in your mouth tasty, in smaller portions allowing us to try more options. The bite sized steak topped with bleu cheese were a show stopper, as were the scallops. The wine list by the glass is has many acceptable options. We did not have dessert, but viewed the cotton candy coming out of the kitchen. In fact each dish leaving the kitchen appeared mouth watering.

Found this through Open Table while in the Oak Brook area and thought we would give it a try. Decor is modern and comfortable. Food: Great flavors. Nice wine list. Fresh ingredients. Excellent service. Food came out quickly and well timed. Our 16 yr old son was with us and thought the burger was great. Will definitely be back and will bring friends!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love Talley's! We often go on Sundays because kids eat free but have gone almost every other night of the week too.
Food is amazing, service is incredible and our experience has always been stellar!
Clarendon hills is lucky to have such a great place

Last Minute Dinner
It was Friday. My wife had just gotten in from work and we both were tired. We both had the same thought, 'Let's go to Talley's for dinner. We weren't sure we could get reservations that were only 15 minutes out but we did. Talley's is a neighborhood restaurant for us and we are lucky to be in such a neighborhood! I had the panko encrusted chicken and my wife had the pork chop with fruit salsa. My chicken was great. The wife said her chop was good but not as outstanding as other dishes she has had at Talley's such as their scallops. It was a relaxing evening for an exhausting week. Talley's never disappoints.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
$10 for steak & fries on Tuesday? Delicious and a great deal.
9/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Gorgeous neighborhood gem!
It was our first time at this restaurant and we will definitely be back. The restaurant is so warm and cozy on the inside, the service is wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our food selections, especially the grilled romaine Cesar salad!
9/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great local find
The decor is warm and inviting. The wait staff is attentive and knowledgable. The food is outstanding. A great place for dinner with friends or family.

We brought our kids for dinner
We brought our kids for dinner and they both ordered the kid pizzas. They were pleasantly surprised to see the kid's pizzas were flatbread and absolutely delicious. I had the scallops and my husband had the grouper, both were fantastic. Our server was also wonderful! We look forward to our next meal at Talley's!

Comfy dining spot
We enjoy Talley's for a relaxed dinner with good food and decent service.

first time visit
My friends and I were very happy with our decision to go to Talley's. We went on steak night and were more than pleased with our dinner. Would also go back for their french onion soup!
10/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Local Place
Ths is a great place to have in town. We were able to get right in with an advance registration of only 30 minutes before. The place was packed, lots of energy, and good food. The crispy green bean app is a must.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great combo of casual and tasty!
While it is not inexpensive, and the portions are right for a satisfying meal, it was a comfortable environment for sharing a nice meal with our high school-aged kids and us. We will go back, I am sure.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had the pleasure of dining at Talley's this past Thursday to celebrate our daughter's engagement. The service was outstanding as they made the celebration personalized, special and memorable for us all. The appetisers, main course and dessert were delicious with gluten free options available. This is a neighborhood gem in Clarendon Hills and Krista Talley and her staff go the extra mile to make your dining experience a special one.
