The music was weird and too loud. Also the lights were down so low you could barely see your plate. But the food, as usual, was amazing. I'd still go back.

As a Top Chef nerd - I loved this whole experience. It wasn’t by any means inexpensive, but we expected as much going into it. Our server was knowledgeable about menu and had great recommendations. Everything we ordered was delicious. The short rib Kare Kare was amazing and the 5G dessert was the perfect meal cap. Being a self proclaimed Bravo aficionado, I recognized things on the menu that Chef Dale had made on the show which to me was very cool. It was fun, the scene was definitely hipster and the food was bangin. Definitely will go again to try other menu options. (But probably for a special occasion!)

Food was very average. At least the brunch was. I’d come back to try out the dinner menu but the service was HORRIBLE. Our waiter was curt and unfriendly. It took 10mins to get his attention. He literally never came around to see how the food was. We were a table of 3 adults and 1 child. The child’s pancakes came out last when they were the first to be ordered. Everyone’s plates came out at different times.

The service was extremely casual, but so was the ambiance. The bar and bartender were very pleasant. Some of the dishes seemed quite overpriced for what they were, but everyone was happy with their meals. I would go there again, but it won't become a go-to for me.

It was the worst experience I’ve had in a restaurant in a long time. I called Talde to make sure they knew it was my daughter’s birthday. After we sat down and ordered drinks and appetizers the waitress let us know that they did not have 3 out of the 6 entrees . Then we ordered a noodle dish and she came back and said we couldn’t have that dish until 8 o’clock. We asked for the manager and asked why we weren’t told this when we first sat down. He had nothing intelligent to say. The 6 of us got up, paid for the drinks, and then had an amazing dinner down the street at Matthews. How can a restaurant run out of half there menu and think it’s ok to still open up to the publuc

I've eaten at Talde a few times before, and have always had good experiences. I also know many others who have always, had very good things to say. However, this night the service was awful. It took a long time for a server to begin helping us. And we waited almost 30 minutes for our drinks. The server said that the bartender was backed up. I'm not sure if they have a separate bartender just for the tables, but I noticed another bartender just standing around while we were waiting. On three separate occasions, food that we did not order was brought to our table, and we had to let them know it was not for us. The server only checked in with us when she was delivering our orders/drinks. I had to flag her down to order more drinks, and once more when asking for the bill.

Overall, the food was very good. However, I had the General Talde's chicken and I found it to be bland. Everything else was very good, especially the #6 BAO which was fantastic as usual. I do think this was just an off night for them, but we had friends visiting from out of town and I had told them that this was one of the best restaurants in the city. While it won't prevent me from going back, I was very disappointed.

The food was good, but there was very little of it for the amount of money and the service was horrendous. Wait staff kept forgetting to bring everything and kept disappearing. They brought out a flight of wings, but didn't tell us which were which. The next person we flagged did not know and had to go for help. They did not clear away appetizer plates and looked amazed when we asked for additional plates when they brought main dishes to share. They brought the salad last and asked if we wanted the dessert at the same time. There was a bug in my friend's drink. They served a plate of octopus, except that only half the plate had food on it. The other half was completely empty. Needless to say, I will not be back.

Unfortunately, this visit to Talde's, after an absence of a few years, was quite disappointing. The noise level was awful, although there was a jazz band, of course, but nothing about the place is designed to soften noise. Food was inventive and okay, but not as good as I remember it. Maybe the menu changed. Anyway, I will not be back.

We've been to Talde a couple of times and I've always been pleasantly surprised with their dishes each time. The lobster bao was delicious as well as the tandoori chicken. Definitely a menu to try out with foodies who can't pick a genre!

Literally had 4 courses, and each one topped the next. It was so freaking good. We had the Pretzel Pork Dumplings, then the Chicken Baos (Personal favorite) with this delicious aioli sauce and then the Ramen was perfect. The cookie dessert was good, but a bit rich. Could only eat like two bites. Overall service was great, waitress was sweet and new.

My wife and I traveled across the globe to eat at this place and celebrate a Fil-American who has made a name for himself. But our experience left us underwhelmed.

When we arrived exactly for our 5pm reservation, the front line staff were somewhat cold, as if they weren’t happy to see customers coming in. We politely asked for a better table (place was still empty), but were curtly told that everything was reserved.

Food was a long wait. Only rice came out first and it took the other dishes 15 minutes more to come out. If you know how Asian food is eaten, this is a big mistake.

The fried rice was good, but considering all the hype, this place was a disappointment. I hope Talde looks at how his people interpret his vision because his people are giving him a bad name.

Had a reservation for 12:45 for brunch. We arrived on time. Ordered and received drinks promptly but for the next hour that was pretty much all we had - that one beverage because after placing food orders we didn't see our waitress or our food for another hour. Not an exaggeration. When the food started to arrive it came out one at a time with anywhere from 5 mins to 15 mins until the next one. They like to say it is "tapas style" or shared plates" so comes out staggered but explain to me how avocado toast or a taylor ham and egg sandwich is family style???? Nobody took responsibility for the atrocious service. We had people at the table who received and finished their meal 45 minutes before the last person received theirs. This was the worst dining experience I have had - ever. They just kept saying "we told you the food comes out as it is ready" which is a pathetic excuse for a badly run kitchen which in turn causes a badly run dining room. Awful, pathetic and sad that a restaurant that started with potential has failed so miserably. People go out to eat together to EAT TOGETHER! Get it together Talde. I will be shocked if they are still in business a year from now.

I live in Hoboken, and although there are many restaurants in the square mile city, I wanted to try something different for dinner. Talde was perfect. I made a reservation online and my guests and I were seated immediately upon arrival. Our waiter was friendly, well versed on the menu, and was very patient with our indecisiveness.

The servers, too, were fantastic. The food was brought out in a timely manner and it was delicious. A very short and easy to read menu led to a wonderful dining experience.
