I almost didn't try Café Talluah based on the reviews here. But I’m glad I didn't pay attention. Had the Steak Tartare and fries, Boeuf Bourguignon. My wife had Octopus and Veal. Food was amazing. We loved everything. Service was spectacular even though the place was packed. The drinks were superb. Pricey, yes. But worth it. We will be going back and often.

I looked forward to going to Cafe Talullah. I live one block away. For several weeks it was hard to get a reservation. Tonight it is a snowstorm, so somehow we were able to get a table. The waiter was nice. Everything else was poor. It took forever to get appetizers and main dishes. We returned two soups. My steak au poivre was cold, cut and not tasty at all. Why people go to this place I have no idea. One of the servers forgot to put white chocolate in the dish. Out of 4 people in our party - not one liked the place. I will never go back there.

I can not understand why they open this restaurant in upper west. Other restaurants serve much greater food.

I came here to try this place out since I live in the neighborhood. The buzz between neighborhood people is that this place is not well run, foodwise & drink wise. When I visited the first time I thought that there was too many bosses and not enough workers. Service is very slow and food definitely needs improvement and adjustment. Also what we ate was cold and we got overcooked meat. Management came over to say sorry and basically blamed the mistakes on the kitchen and that is not cool. I tasted 3 different wines by the glass and so did my guests and none of us was impressed with selection. Commercial wines with astronomical prices.. When we left nobody really cared to say by and thanks and the manager was not to be seen.

Hard to recount all the missteps of our dinner last night- I wasn't expecting danny Meyer service, but not this mess either. Burgers ordered medium, arrived raw - like cold in the center raw. Sent back. Returned - again, raw. Cold in center. Ordered a different meal. 45 minutes later, flag down our waitress who does not know a thing to check in kitchen. Wait another 15 minutes for cold gluey pappardelle with a strangely acidic sauce with no discernible veal. In the meantime, general manager came over to crack a joke and tell us that the kitchen was really small... Not my problem! Never saw him or the manager again- they never bothered to follow up or say sorry. Coat check downstairs closes so don't check your coat.

For a new place, incredibly promising. Diverse interesting menu. Lovely plating, inventive cocktails. Fabulous addition to the neighborhood and NYC.

The food was very uneven...especially the monkfish, it was inedible. The service was fabulous and the vibe is fun. Go for a drink as they have a good wine list.
