My wife and I had dinner on Wednesday night. There were only two servers and they were obviously over worked with the full house of diners. Our order was delayed so long that dtwo parties who arrived after us were finished with their entrees before we were served. When we were served, the dressing was not on one salad, we... More

We were excited by the great reviews and went out of our way to have dinner here. The space is lovely and comfortable, the wait staff attentive, and the menu interesting and reasonable. However our meal was very poor. The salad was very overdressed in a sweet honeyed dressing. I had pork ribs which were overcooked drenched in a sweet... More

Lovely restaurant with amazing food. We really enjoyed the ambiance, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and yummy food. The gorgonzola stuffed chicken was outstanding.

Talulah's is one of the places that I recommend business associates when they come to town. For either lunch or dinner they are great (although not a quick lunch). They have multible sandwiches and salads during lunch, including the Big Cheese...macaroni and cheese in my grilled cheese, yes please!

Vacationing in area and our group of 6 were intrigued by menu of use of locally grown organic foods. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was comfortable with contemporary decor. The service was great. Our waitress was right on with descriptions of food. Everyone loved their choice of food that ran the gamut from pastas to beef. The choice of... More

So glad that we made reservations - we needed them. The food is excellent - a wide range of choices, and the portions are substantial. We'll definitely return to this restaurant.

We made our Saturday night 6:30 reservation one day in advance Our table was ready upon arrival and even had a reserved sign with our party's name on it. Nice! Most of the diners were over 50. The restaurant appears to be a hit with local retired community. Service was okay but it felt slow. We got the impression that... More

For farm fresh, simple and deliciously prepared food, this is the place. Great fish and pasta. Good size portions. Bread is ridiculously good my husband says. I am gluten free but almost cheated for that bread. Trendy, but friendly, fun waiters. Not at all stuffy. Reservations are a must though as it is small and THE place to go in... More

We frequent Sonora a few times per year when we go up to visit family. For this trip, we used TripAdvisor to find a place for lunch and came up with Talulah's. We usually eat at Diamondback Grill, but thought we would change due to this place rating higher. We each ordered a sandwich...Pulled Pork and Meatball Marinara. There was... More
