Loved it!

Best meal of our trip was here. Great food, fab wine list and really fun and charming waiter was very kind to me. It was my birthday and the made just the right amount of fuss and it was lovely. Highly recommend.

Talulah's is in old Sonora and has finished the interior of the old building with bright colors to produce a very cheerful ambiance - akin to some in Mexico. One wall appears to be the original red brick wall, while the other is like dry wall with many large colorful paintings by a local artist that are available for purchase.... More

Can't go wrong with lunch or dinner. The prices, portions and food is great. Wonderful ambiance as well with a good staff.

I had the Linguini with shrimp and scallops which was heavenly. They have a great ravioli also, and a really nice local wine selection. The breaded fish fillets were also lovely.

We loved this restaurant. The meals were great and not super sized so that we actually could fit in starters, mains and dessert for the first time since being in the states. The food was homely but high quality and reasonably priced. We also liked the fact that it was BYO (for a small corkage) and we could bring a... More

Talulah's is an eclectic, fabulous bistro!! My grilled cheese (The Big Cheese) was the BEST I have ever had! My husband's Ravioli Sample was wonderful and my sister's Signature Salad was perfect! See photos! The service was wonderful and friendly! When in the area again, Talulah's is a must do!!

Locals eat there and the art is beautiful and the wait staff friendly. Everything is made fresh and healthy, without sacrificing great taste and ample portions.

Stopped in for lunch during a recent day trip to historical Sonora. Service was pleasant and staff knowledgable. Food was better than expected. Bread with drizzle is a perfect compliment to the meal. We split the ravioli sampler and the signature salad (sans eggplant); both were delicious. Paired withe Prosecco and a local hard cider, the meal was a very... More

Food - Good Service - Horrible that night I've been to Talulah's a few times before, but this last time really made me not ever want to come back again. I've had lunch here a few times and decided to try going dinner because someone told me their dinner menu was very good. I was seated with friends and a... More

I had eaten at Tallulah's for dinner a few months ago and loved it. So I was more than disappointed today when I took my adult daughter out for a special lunch and it was anything but special. We were seated quickly and had a nice waitress. The restaurant was busy, but not overly crowded and we were at the... More
