A very enjoyable experience. The Bison short rib was to die for ! Service was excellent. My only complaint was that we were seated in the bar area, which was noisy and rather cramped.

The food was terrific. My wife had the Amish chicken breast which was moist and delicious. I had the Casic e Pepe with shrimp. Good sized shrimp and pasta was done just right.

Tallulah was already a well rated restaurant before we had visited. Having never been, we used those ratings to pick it over others in the area to celebrate my birthday. The setting of the back bar was great. Low lights, intimate seating, and a window to the street. Our waiter, George, was a wonderful help picking wine that matched what we had enjoyed at home earlier. The food was incredible. The total bill was a pleasant surprise. We will be back, hopefully for a wine tasting that our waiter mentioned, and we put our addresses on for the email newsletter.

We had a fun lady date celebrating our friend who recently got engaged for a surprise dinner! Tallulah is always my favorite spot for celebrating- happy hour at the bar or dinner! The service is always the absolute best, and Ornella was so helpful setting up our table decorations! :)

I love the food at Tallulah's. Especially the salmon (which is probably the best I've ever had), and the scallops. However, this time, I ordered the branzino and it was dry and the squid ink yogurt was an odd pairing with this dish. Otherwise, I would have given Tallulah's 5 stars across the board.
The artisan cheese board was exceptional and I love the half-price Wednesday evening wine.

Arrived early for our 8:15 reservation expecting to be seated at the bar. Table was ready! Nice. Menu was great with many delicious options. Lamb special was outstanding and my wife’s filet mignon was cooled to perfection. Salads were excellent. Endive and apple? Nice. The crispy brussels sprouts had a spicy kick with pomegranate. Unique, enjoyed a lot. Ahi appetizer was average. Wine list was pretty compact but with a wide spectrum of choices and price points. Recommend! Nice birthday dinner!

We were visiting from out of town and had a reservation at 6:30 on a Friday. We were seated in Talullah Too which was fine...a little quieter than the bar area. The service was absolutely outstanding. The wine list is wonderful. Food selections were creative. We both had the branzino, which was cooked perfectly; not too much oil, so very light. Salads were also great.

i would like to see some apps that, (when paired with a salad), could be a meal. i often prefer to eat less than an entree, but did not see anything like scallops or crab cakes etc that would suffice for a small plate meal. i would come more frequently if that were the case.

Great food, presentation and service. Wine list limited and on the high side. We were there for Restaurant Week and had to ask for that menu which makes you wonder if they are trying to upcharge and still be part of the promotion. That being said our food was delicious and we will be back.
