Mexican
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.

Overall great experience. We were recommended by a friend to try Talavera. We were immediately greeted with water and chips and salsa. Server was very knowledgeable. The Flor de Passion margarita was amazing. I ordered the octopus tres chile and the server recommended it on one of their salads. It was amazing.

We had brunch there as we do every few weeks. We both ordered huevos rancheros, plus a small dish of guacamole. My husband asked for the eggs scrambled instead of the traditional sunny side up, and they obliged. Everything was excellent, including service. We ate outside on a street that’s been converted to pedestrian-only. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Rude waiter. I asked him to put beans inside a cheese quesadilla as there was only one other vegetable option. He said the kitchen is busy. I got up hungry and ate at another restaurant after finishing my drinks and the guacamole

Food and service was great as usual. However I did noticed the waiter a bit rushed in giving me the bill as folks were waiting for a table. We were still drinking our wine and I wanted to have coffee.
Had to tell him I was not ready for the bill.
Other than that everything was great.

I took my out of town family there for the first time and I was disappointed with the service. I saw so many servers yet the people that tended to us seemed rushed, turning before the finished their sentences. Just could have been better.

Overpriced for the quality of the food. The hostess did not care or appeared that she did not want to be there. The price that they are charging the food need to taste fresh and well seasoned. However with this restaurant neither was the case. The enchiladas tasted like it was a reheated frozen meal you get from the grocery store, and the octopus had zero seasoning even though the menu states otherwise. We will not be back.

I've been to Talavera quite a few times. It seems to me there is always something off at this place. The food is the best thing they have going. The service, not so good. The hostess last night did not even bother to read the remarks I have put in my reservation. I had asked for a booth, and she wanted to put my girlfriend and I at the smallest table there was, when there were booths available... Basic lack of customer service and attention to detail. That's why the three stars given. Nothing to rave about.

The green ceviche is always great. Love their guacamole. Note - it comes with tortillas vs chips. But, you can ask for chips too.

Very bad experience, the service was horrendous, not attentive. Bad quality on the products. Small plastic spoons on the table for the salsas.They run out of some dishes but they don’t tell you before, at least will be good giving heads up once you receive the menu not after you make some choices. Not worth it.

We had to wait up front by front door for almost 10 minutes until anyone came to help us...front desk was unattended and lost of people were waiting. When maitre’d did show up, she was very disinterested and slow. Service was just as bad once we were seated. Server didn’t show up until we were seated for 10 minutes and was completely inattentive during meal. Very disappointed by service overall!!! Severe training needed by management.

We took some family from out-of-town to Talavera. Although we arrived late for our reservation we were seated right away. The waiter was outstanding, the food fresh and delicious . This is not your ordinary Mexican restaurant. The menu offerings are high-end, creative and authentic. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, lingering over the queso fundido and delicate tortilla wraps that accompanied it. We will be back for sure.

Talavera Cocina has authentic food served in an excellent location. The ingredients were fresh and nothing was too salty; a common complaint I have with Mexican restaurants. We will be back.
