Took a date here on a friends recommendation, and between the decoration, atmosphere, drink menu, and overall class, I am getting a second date for sure. Not intimidating at all, could show up in jeans or a tie and fit right in. Service as a little slow due to Friday night crowds but still well worth it. Do up your image guys!!

I went here with a few friends and we all enjoyed both the food and atmosphere. The servings were larger than expected and the food excellent. Both the atmosphere and decor were pleasing. The service was good and the prices reasonable. Definitely going back soon.

I love French food so when I saw this "French" bistro that was the place I wanted to stop for lunch. Service was good, waiter was friendly, and the wine was good but it was down hill after that. They offer an omelet of the day which seems to imply that omelets are a favorite on their menu. Mine was hardly what I would call an omelet. The eggs were, I suspect, pre-cooked, they looked and tasted much like the ones you would get in a breakfast sandwich at a Subway. The eggs were lukewarm and seemed to be wrapped around a small slice of cheese and slice of ham. The cheese and ham were ice cold! No nice melty cheese here. Ham wasn't bad but both the eggs and cheese were tasteless. The frites were more like common french fries you would get at a dinner but perhaps less tasty. I'd say stop in for a glass of wine at the bar but stay well away from here if you are hungry and it's lunch or dinner time.

My first time to Cafe Tallulah, my friend and I were thrilled to see that a favorite bartender from one of our Tribeca haunts was now uptown behind the bar! We had a fabulous glass of wine, something you can't always get in this town unless you buy a full bottle. We then each had one of the signature house drinks, both were delicious & strong. The bar was full, yet we didn't feel crowded. The decor is sexy, and the music wasn't too loud, so you can actually speak and be heard. I returned this past week with my son & his girlfriend for the prix fixe Thanksgiving dinner, this being the first time in 20 years not cooking for my family. I was pretty impressed. Everything we ate was excellent. Rich buttery pumpkin soup, enough turkey with all the trimmings that I couldn't finish, and killer flourless chocolate cake. The hostess, maitre d, as well as our waitress were all very sweet and attentive, not to mention good looking. (they also made a great cappucino, easier said than done in this town where everyone's a barista). Looking forward to going again soon for the Monday night $1 oysters, especially knowing there'll be a nice wine by the glass recommendation from the bartender. And then dinner.

No wonder this place was empty for a weekend lunch. Tuna tartare was tasteless and croque madame seemed simply re-heated and served lukewarm. The cocktails were way too sweet and the atmosphere trying way too hard. I wouldn't go back.

I had high hopes, but from the moment we sat down, they were crushed. The kitchen is easily overwhelmed and it falls on the hardworking but poorly managed wait staff to deal with customers who wait an hour+ for food - and they don't offer bread during the wait. The food came out tepid and was tasteless. Very sad.

I'd hoped it would be a great new addition to the UWS. But no. The staff is overwhelmed, the kitchen can not deal with a full house - which one assumes- is the goal . It took 30 minutes to get a drink, they don't offer or bring bread while they're not serving you, the food came out tepid and tasted like nothing. A colassol waste of a great space in a prime location. Sad.
