Loved the food and the service. Was great to meet the owner and especially her adorable daughter. Had a wonderful time and will definitely go back. Definitely a place to recommend to friends and family.

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

The noise level was horrible. My friend and I were seated in what should have been a quiet corner with the window to the street and the wall. We were 10 inches apart and had to yell at each other.
I had a headache after 30 mins and found the entire experience completely ruined by all the noise.
It was full but still.. what is wrong with these places that you can't hear yourself think.

We enjoyed our Saturday night dinner at Talley's even though our soups were not the best. My husband's onion soup was very hot and my tortilla soup was barely warm but very spicy. The main dishes were very good. My husband loved the scallops and I had the short ribs which were wonderful and a large enough portion so my husband could have some. For dessert I had the White Chocolate Martini (yum) and my husband had the cheesecake which he enjoyed. All in all we thought it was a delightful Saturday night meal.

Very nice restaurant. Reservations at 6:00 and the place was full at 6:30. A little for everyone. Great soup/flatbread. We had the mushroom soup which was excellent, flatbread and panko chicken. Friendly staff.
Very enjoyable. Will go back

Had 7:15 Saturday reservation for two and were seated promptly. Our server, Mandy, was terrific and very knowledgeable about the menu and wines to match. The baked goat cheese appetizer, onion soup and yesterday's lentil soup were all excellent. The braised short rib was very tasty and enough to share for my wife and me. Add a bottle of sensual chocolate wine (Malbec and Syrah) and it was an excellent meal. It was quiet enough for conversation until the live singer started after 8PM. We'll take that into account next time.

Took a chance on a new restaurant and that can always be a little tricky but Talleys did not disappoint. The overall experience was great.
While I requested a booth, one was not available but they did put us in a quieter corner which was perfect.

With only two other tables occupied, our server pressed is for and order without as much as a smile. The descriptions given were vague. We were left on our own after the food was served, despite needing to correct the meat temp of one order. The rest of our food was good. The music playing was odd and difficult to either listen to or talk over. We asked that it be turned down. Later in the evening the music genre changed; perhaps at the request of additional guests. Our server did not improve, unfortunately.

This will be on my go-to list of favorites for local dining. There was a fair going on in the streets so there were a lot of walk-ins with children which led to a lot of noise but tolerable. I will return when less hectic. Food was outstanding, gourmet. Waitress was exceptional, attentive but not bothersome. Highly recommended.

The service was horrible. My husband ordered a drink and never came. We saw our server once when we ordered an appetizer. we were still waiting to place an entree order and awaiting our drinks, when we decided this was a waste. We paid for our app and left. Again, seeing our waiter once in about 30 min. He Never checked to see how the app was , if we needed anything, etc. The food smelled good and the appetizer was good, but would not recommend based on the service.

Five of our group of six had the Tuesday steak and frites special - clean plates all around! Well prepared, simple, nice cut of beef. Not too much. The seafood dish was large scallops on a bed of risotto - elegantly plated and well prepared. Would dine at Talley's again tomorrow! Nice blend of all age groups and some young families. Casual, an energetic volume but easy to chat.

I wanted to like this place and some things I did. But my husband ordered the filet medium rare and it was way overcooked. I don't know if it was the kitchen or the server put in the order as medium well. He didn't want to say anything because he didn't want to send it back (I wanted them to be aware for future). But I think if you can't cook a filet something needs fixing. The filet was thick so to have no pink whatsoever even in the very center, then it was neglected in a warmer or seriously overcooked, neither are acceptable. I had the trout which was good.

The food is outstanding but the last 2 times I've been there, the wait staff has been very rude about closing up by 9. They turn on the lights bright to make sure we understand they want to get out of there.

Talley's Kitchen is a neighborhood gem. A great alternative to Naperville's crowded downtown, Clarendon Hills is compact and cozy with easy parking. The casual, lively restaurant was hopping at 8pm on a Sat night, with a good mix of young families, dates, and large groups. The food was very good; I enjoyed my spicy chicken pasta dish, and my date liked the meatloaf. Service and ambiance were great. But the highlight for me was the glass of sparkling wine I ordered; a New Mexican Brut from the Gruet Winery in Albuquerque. It's perfectly crisp and tart and dry and bubbly, and may be the best champagne I've ever tasted. Thanks for introducing me to it.

Our first time here, and the food was delicious and a great price value! However, it is very noisy and hard for my wife and I to chat unless we yelled. Also, I think they need more wait staff -- the service, though carefully done, was slow. Our meal, nothing fancy, took almost 2 hours. Any place can have a misstep on occasion, and this one is definitely worth another try. We were there at 6:15 on a Thursday. We will try an hour earlier on a weeknight next time and hope for faster service and easier conversation. The wine list is very good, by the way!
