Talia's Steakhouse & Bar

Would rather eat at a homeless shelter. Food is possibly the poorest quality I've ever eaten. Manager hovers around tuning the lights down and music up! All in all an unpleasant experience!

What I love most about Talia's is their special prepaid meals they have for every Shabbat and holidays. My family and I attended their Thanksgiving meal recently and we were impressed once again by everything, from the service to the food, even with the packed house. It's difficult planning something as festive as a Thanksgiving meal, but they really outdid themselves and it seemed everyone there was having a great time and enjoying their food. I feel lucky to live just a few blocks away from Talia's, as I know whenever I'll need a meal for any occasion, they'll be there for me.

I don't like steak at all, but I always find something delicious for myself to order at Talia's. I love the ribs, I love the burgers, I love the chicken and duck. I think this is a great kosher restaurant hands down, with a really cool middle eastern/american flair, hard to place in such a boxlike category as 'kosher steakhouse' - I would rename it is in a category all it's own, although none exists as Talia's is one - of a kind! I sometimes find food or water refill service slow, but waitstaff is always super friendly and overall very customer service oriented which always makes my dining a better experiene. And Talia's always has extra services going on - shabbat meals, holiday meals, so many other deals. Once again, I emphasize the words "one of a kind", with my strong recommendation for all kosher diners to try it for yourself.

I really love the fact that Talia’s has a full bar – I had my birthday dinner there and specifically chose Talia’s because I wanted it to be at a kosher steakhouse and also for us to have a few cocktails at the same time. We had an amazing time! There was even live music. Talia’s has some of the best Middle-Eastern food -pita, falafel, hummus and their burgers and steaks are always good. I had tiramisu for dessert with a birthday candle and everyone sang happy birthday. What a fantastic night! Highly recommended.

We were 2 couples that purchased a Bloomspot deal. 3 courses dinner for 2, bottle of wine. $75 instead of $150. Between all 4 of us, we tried all of their 3 soups - matzoh ball, chicken vegetables, beef and beans soup. The matzoh ball was delicious - as good as, if not better, than Grandma's. One of us opted for the middle-eastern combo of Moroccan cigar, kubbeh and chicken finger with tahini. It was also very tasty. Since we were in a steakhouse, we all went with the ribeye for main dish. One of us wanted medium-well, but got it medium, so he had to send it back to the kitchen, but other than that they were all amazing. The meat quality was great - tender, right amount of fattiness - better than we expected. In terms of wine, we ordered one caberent and one pinot grigio and they were both pretty decent. It's not Barolo, but nonetheless very satisfactory. We had a lovely waitress who was very attentive and tried hard to please us. They had a duo (guitar & trumpet) playing oldies, swing, jazz etc. They were great - I would have payed cover charge to listen to these guys, if the restaurant asked for it. For dessert we devoured the chocolate souffle with vanilla ice cream (parve, but very good). It was so good that my spouse asked for the basic recipe and the chef was kind enough to step out from the kitchen and give us the ingredient list. We signed up for Talia's mailing list, because we can't wait for the next deal. A royal meal with music and great atmosphere for only about $100 is a homerun anyway you look at it. The only thing that disturbed me was that they had a TV, not only in the bar, but also in the main dining room. I feel it takes away from the upscale air of the place. Other than that, I highly recommend Talia's.

I want to recommend Talia’s as a great place to go for a date. I have a few single friends who have taken girls there and recommended I do the same. My first time, yesterday, my date had chicken marsala and I had a shoulder steak. Although we didn’t eat much and paid more attention to each other, I thought the food tasted very good and the service was friendly. Our waiter was eager to please and came by to check in on us frequently, to make sure we were well taken care of. He made extreme effort telling us daily specials, and said the chef asked how we were enjoying our food. Although I don’t think she was the right girl for me, I plan to try another date here and I definitely found a restaurant ‘match’ with Talia’s! Thanks for providing an accommodating dating atmosphere for us - the singles.

I went to this restaurant last night with a few friends. The rib eye steak was poor quality( i dont buy cheap meat like that from the grocery,and i don't expect a restaurant who call themselves a steak house to serve such poor quality meat). The chicken had a bad taste and the mixed combo was worse than take out.
