A good choice for lunch. Service was friendly and fast, belly hash was just right. It was our first time in Rhode Island and we felt this was a good introduction

This was our second visit to Tallulah's! The farm to table theme is expertly executed, the service professional and well timed, and the atmosphere warm and friendly- and lively in the summer! The food is lights out great, beautifully presented; we did the wine pairing both times which really added to the experience! Looking forward to our next dinner! A... More

This was the best dining experience! Every bite was a so amazing! Three of us each ordered different things from the menu and shared. Every bite was a little bit of heaven from their homemade bread and sorbet and everything in between. This is a special occasion restaurant. Take your time and savor the experience. We were there almost 3... More

We dined at Tallulah for our anniversary weekend in RI. We chose the six course tasting menu with wine pairing. We were thrilled with every course. Tucked in between the six courses, we were offered delicious homemade bread, an amuse bouche, a palate cleanser, and even a pre-dessert which was essentially a whole other dessert. The thoughtfulness of each course... More

When dining here it is always a journey. So much though and attention to detail goes into the plates its astonishing. My wife and I eat here every time we are in Newport and will continue to do so.

We went to 3 high end restaurants in Newport and this was our best meal. Really neat place, downstairs lively and festive- upstairs very quiet. I think downstairs is harder to get so book early if you want a more lively atmosphere with open kitchen.

This is a wonderful little restaurant in Newport, by the wharf. We didn't have reservations, but I would definitely have gotten them if we were visiting during the height of the summer. As it was, we were able to walk in on a Sunday at 5:30, and the restaurant was fairly quiet at that time. We had the four course... More

We went for our anniversary and had the four course/wine pairing. I could have had 10 courses, not because I wasn't satisfied, but just to experience them. The couple next to us compared it to being a judge on a cooking show--every course feels prepared w/ care just for you. The staff was lovely and knowledgeable and we met the... More
