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.

We were fairly disappointed by Talaverna. The first impression was a very unhappy hostess who did not acknowledge us at all, just said "follow me", walked us to a table and dropped menus. Didn't say normal things like "hello" or "good evening" or tell us the name of our server. Chips and salsa were brought to the table, the container will filled with broken chip pieces, 5 whole chips and the rest were all little tiny broken pieces. Our busser saw me take a photo of it then suddenly a new bowl of chips appeared on the table. Our server was kind and knowledgeable but slow. Our food was good but for $100 for dinner, I expected it to be great. Meat wasn't seasoned enough, it relied on the flavor from the sauce which also did not have much flavor. We probably would not come back as we were very disappointed with our anniversary dinner.

Always enjoy coming to this restaurant for some authentic Mexican food. The service, however, could have been more attentive. Not a major problem but have been served better previously.

Went there on Sunday for a Mexican brunch - huevos rancheros, chilaquiles, queso fundido.
It was excellent and the price very fair.
We had a good time and a good meal.

Food was pretty good overall, and the mango and quinoa salad was top notch. Service at our table was excellent.

The only issue was with a server who greeted us at the door. I have an honest-to-God service dog for mobility issues (I have ALS), and the server insisted we should have a “certificate.” I explained the law to him— establishments can only ask what specific tasks the dog provides, and there is no national or state certification— but he kept saying his boss required the certificate. We were eventually seated, but the encounter put a damper on the evening.

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
