    Disappointing

    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.

    Incompetent

    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.

    Atmosphere

    Always sit @the bar! Bartenders know their craft, mix special drinks at request, and I always order something to split with a friend. This place is fun, relaxing and no pressure. Have enjoyed each visit and will keep going back for more.

    French?

    The only thing French about this place was the large picture of Bardot on the wall. The food was below par. I should have guessed the lamb chops would not be good by the pricing. They were just two dollars more then the chicken. We also had the chicken and I always judge a French restaurant by the chicken. It was really poorly done. The waitress was, to put it mildly, a space cadet. Will definitely not be going back to this place.

    Perfect late night bistro and cocktail joint

    Not quite sure what the bad reviews of this place have been - unless it was a case of them ironing out the kinks in their first few weeks. But I've been a number of times now - to eat at the bar, have dinner, and also enjoy the lounge downstairs - and it is a welcome and needed late night addition to the neighborhood. Classy without being pretentions (none of the fake velvet rope attitudes), the wine list is also a welcome addition to the UWS - great choices that won't kill the bank. Anything with truffles on the menu is worth it, and the tartar is my new late night fav. The signature cocktail is a lovely twist on a sazerac, and the lavender infused gin cocktail whose name I can't remember after three of them was also tasty. The upstairs bar has almost a deco meets steampunk/post-modern red velvet thing going on - not quite sure what era it's supposed to be, but it's a great French /Euro cosmopolitan vibe without feeling eurotrashy. The lounge downstairs seems destined to be mobbed, but for now is a great late night, post date hangout. Highly recommend it as a antidote to stuffier west side haunts.

    Steak tartare & cocktails please!

    What a wonderful addition to the UWS! We live only a few blocks away from Cafe Tallulah and were so thrilled with our first dining experience. We arrived early for drinks at the bar; the cocktails were AMAZING! I had the Gilbert and my husband had the Tallulah; the bartenders created a wonderful experience (super friendly and gracious). We were then seated for our reservation. The food was fantastic and the services was wonderful! For an appetizer we shared the Steak Tartare and for dinner my husband had the Boeuf Bourguignon and I had the Salmon. For dessert we had the Creme Brûlée and another round of cocktails. We will definitely be back often and have already recommended Cafe Tallulah to our friends. Welcome to the neighborhood.

    Disappointed

    Went here last night as I heard great things, but overalI was not impressed. The Maitre D was super sweet and a complete delight, but thats where the positive vibes end. My wine had sediment in the bottom, either from the cork or wine and there were three items not availble on the menu. The venison was cold and the fries, tasted old to me, the mussels and octupus were good, however it was a little odd to have pepporoni in the mussels broth. We were offered something after dinner.. but no desserts were available...so not really sure what we were being offered. coffee perhaps. I hear that the vibe downstairs is awesome and will go again to just check out this, but not for the food, I was really disappointed.
