We took a recommendation to go there but found it wasn't all that special. Had the braised short ribs. They were drowned in the sauce which turned out to be good because the ribs were overcooked and dry. The server brought out bread which was soggy as it had been immersed in olive oil and laden with garlic. Should have... More

We went to Talulah's for dinner as we had heard so much about their great food. We were delighted with the atmosphere, cozy space, delicious food and great service. It's right downtown so it is easy to find.

Old Sonora has many restaurants but Talulah's seems to stand out as somewhat trendy with obvious, careful attention to the menu and to food preparation. Our dishes were well executed, with complex flavors, ingredients and seasonings. The service was friendly and fast and we thought the prices were very reasonable.

Just had an amazing lunch at this wonderful restaurant right in downtown Sonora. We were happy with everything we ordered. Tasty salad, delicious spaghetti and wonderful ravioli. The bread with garlic olive oil was amazing! Would we return? Without a doubt!

Although the food is great, what sets this place apart is the free bread and italian dipping oil that goes with it. Just amazing! I generally get one of their great salads or the vegetable lasagna. We haven't been in quite a while, but this is a great place.

Talulah's is one of our favorite restaurants in Sonora. The food is always great. Try the stuffed chicken breasts. They're yummy!

A wonderful place to dine. I have been here several times for dinner; had lunch two days ago! Small, inviting and yummy food!! If you love grilled cheese, try theirs. Like nothing you have ever tasted before. The meatball sandwich was also very yummy. The menu is perfect. Service is the terrific. Everything is prepared FRESH, HOT and DELICIOUS!

Like so many reviewers have stated this is one of the finer restaurants in Sonora. The food, service and general feel of this establishment certainly deserves its five stars. I would definitely eat there again.

After walking through downtown Sonora we stopped outside Talulah's where a very friendly local couple recommended the food before heading in to a table they'd reserved. Based on this friendly advice - and having seen the delicious menu - we decided to give it a go. The welcome inside was warm and we were quickly installed at a table. We... More
