    We had a delightful watermelon, feta and sea bean salad as a starter, and outstanding Branzino with zucchini as a main course. The desserts were equally fabulous, a lemon meringue Italian cake that was beyond delicious and a chocolate torte that the rest of the party loved. Outside seating was fabulous but We eat indoors in colder weather…beautiful atmosphere. 5 stars!

    It was our wedding anniversary and we asked for a window table which we did not get in fact we were in the corner very dimly lit. And I booked a three top and received an email 30 minutes before the reservation time that my table had been moved to a two top, We have three people in our party.

    Tallulah is one of my favorite restaurants. Exceptional ambience and quality service. The menu is varied and I can always find something new to try. A wide array of appetizers is offered, along with wonderful salads. Their specials are always interesting. Outdoor dining is great during the summer months.

    Wonderful food and a great, professional server. Only quibble: in an almost empty restaurant, the front desk tried to sit us next to the kitchen/cash register — noisy, busy, hot. We asked to be moved but the front desk did not tell our new server so we waited a while. After that, it was a lovely meal and we would go there anytime.

    This restaurant was amazing! I took my date here for the first time, and I was blown away. Usually, fancy/expensive restaurants have no right to be due to some flaw(s) or are overrated, but not Tallulah. The food was delicious, the service was great, and the noise level was acceptable.

    In spite of the incredibly loud table behind us, we had a great experience, because our server, Jolla, made sure of it. She is so intuitive and knows what we like, from cocktails, and wine, to the way we like our food prepared. I'd like to say it's because she knows us from our many dinners at the restaurant, but she was always like that from the beginning. This is a rare occurrence these days. The food was perfectly prepared and the wine list had many affordable choices. We loved the tuna appetizer as well as the mussels and the pork chop and salmon were delicious. We are already thinking about our next visit, very soon.

    We had a very good experience at Tallulah. Nice variety of menu items to satisfy gluten free, vegetarian and regular diets. The Italian lemon cake for dessert was outstanding - fresh and lite. The NY strip was good but somewhat bland. Needed some additional seasoning in my opinion. Excellent wine list. Overall very good experience. Would definitely go back.

    After being away for the winter, we were so happy to return to Tallulah and we were rewarded. Not only was the food excellent, as usual, but Jolla, our server made the experience perfect, and Mario, the owner recommended a wine that was amazing. The pork chop was every bit as good as it always has been and the seared tuna appetizer was exceptional. The salmon was also perfectly prepared and the whole experience was memorable. We can't wait to come back soon.

    Perfection is the most accurate description of our experience at Tallulah. The service provided by Valentina was superb! She was patient, knowledgeable and made fantastic recommendations. The food was prepared perfectly and sensation-able. We enjoyed the mushroom appetizer, octopus (the whipped feta most likely comes from heaven), broccolini, mushroom tortellini and the chicken. From the moment you walk in till you walk out, you’re treated like family. No matter the occasion, I would highly recommend dining at Tallulah.
