The menu is not exactly extensive, but there are certainly enough tempting choices. The onion soup was as good as previously reviewed, and the split pea was excellent as well. I had the blue salad and filet medallions for the main course and neither disappointed. My date had the strip and fries and, it too, was just the right size and cooked to order. Sadly, they were out of cheesecake, but the key lime pie was a perfect replacement. Wonderful meal - looking forward to returning.

Great neighborhood find. Good variety on their menu. Our vegetarian said the Caprese gnocchi was 'life-changing' and I agreed. Nice wine selection.

You don't know what you are missing until you visit Talley's. While the menu is not extensive, every time I have been there the food has been excellent. The night I visited I had scallops which were superb. The Table service was attentive and top notch as well. Best, but not least, the food is very reasonably priced. You will enjoy your experience.

Atmosphere was VERY loud! I’m never one to comment on noise we but couldn’t carry a conversation at our table. Server didn’t greet us until 10minutes after being seated and was missing the whole meal. No recomenations or specials mentioned until we asked and the was just a rattle of the specials with no recommendations. Seemed rushed when the waiter did see us and seemed like he never tried any of the meals prior so no recommendations to offer. French onion soup was great and Panko chicken left much to be desired as it was quite bland. Dessert did not catch our attentional at all. I assume that perhaps we caught the restaurant on a very busy and loud night. Not sure but the food was nothing impressive and the service was lousy. Wish it could have offered more especially for myself living in the neighborhood.

I've been to this place multiple times, and they never disappoint! It boasts a great atmosphere, creative menu, and fantastic service. Their short rib grilled cheese is fantastic! They also have a great selection of wine and beer. Go on Saturday nights to enjoy live music. Truly a gem in downtown Clarendon Hills.

Thursday night, small crowd. Great patient service. A good night to enjoy chicken sandwich, baked brie, steak with fries and a couple drinks and chat and catch up. Lots of families and take out orders, too.

I was looking forward to trying this highly rated restaurant not that far from my home. The server informed us there was no bread or anything else provided. I ordered the trout dinner for $17. It came on a plate with about a tablespoon of a tasty Couscous salad. That was it. The trout was fair, not well seasoned. The service was also fair, not too attentive. Although I am not a big eater, I was still hungry. All in all, very disappointing. Unfortunately, I won’t be returning.

A neighborhood gem! The cheese board was delicious with yummy cheeses, fig jam, spiced pecans and cranberries. We also tried the gnocchi. They were fantastic. Smoked mozzarella, flavorful roasted tomatoes and plenty of basil, garlic, and parmasean. Was a dish that hit the spot. And on top of great food, Talley's has great service. They went above and beyond to make the evening special. Warm, heartfelt greetings, attentive care and special attention paid to the kids to make sure they had a nice experience too. Was a lovely dinner and we look forward to going back.

Food is always solid. Felt like whomever does wine pricing duped us on an off menu wine that we know well and drink often. Shame on me but to others who go there I would make sure to confirm pricing on wine and don’t assume the multiplier used for the wines on the menu is the same for the off menu wines

Everything was great, except the live entertainment that night. He was not good...proved to be distracting, rather than enhancing the experience.
