Description: Mexico.... home of Talavera, the unique fine art pottery from the 16th Century, native of the city of Puebla. This genuine and refined Mexican spirit of the Talavera art sets the ground for the spirit of our menu. From the "Huarache" grill, a series of delicate dishes served on a corn tortilla base, to a variety of regional specialties from Sonora to Oaxaca, from Michoacan to Puebla, from Jalisco to Yucatan. Talavera, the art of a genuine and refined taste of Mexico.

My Word! I went to this restaurant with two of my coworkers in Jan. 2015 and had a great time. The service was fantastic. The food was spectacular. I had mahi mahi on a tortilla and some type of magic red sauce, lol. However the highlight of our experience was the sauces that came with the complimentary chips - a... More

Pros -------- Cons Service Food I had a disappointing lunch at this joint. I had ordered an appetizer, never got it and my main course was something else that I didn't order. Never got refills for our drinks... Just horrible. Maybe the service was terrible on that specific day, who knows. But the truth is I will not be back... More

Great authentic Mexican food. Worth the trip if you're looking for the real deal. Everything was served promptly and the food was hot and the service was good. No complaints.

Went to Talavera with my family for a sunday lunch and had a great experience. The place is nicely decorated, staff is nice and efficient, and the food is great. We had "queso fundido, guacamole, enchiladas suizas, tacos de carnitas, and mole poblano". Everything was fresh, tasteful and not greasy.

Nice Mexican restaurant decorated with Talavera pottery. Enjoyed the ceviches, Mole Negro and Abuealitas chocolate dessert. No TexMex.

As a regular at this somewhat upscale Mexican restaurant, I'm biased in my regard. And in a country that debases Mexican food with Tex-Mex concoctions, I'm grateful to have Talavera in the 'hood. Wonderful service with a great bar and barman (Eddie), and top of the line shrimp ceviche, tacos, huaraches, and moles. The lunch specials are a bargain at... More

We have been here before twice. And both times were very good. So our expectations were high and we were not surprised that we had a fantastic meal again! I especially loved the huarache beef. My kids ate the tortillas with beef and they loved the quality of the beef. We will definitely be back.

Have been at the restaurant many times since it first opened. The last two time the food has declined. The last time, they were out of a number of things on their menus! Concerned Diner.
