I am giving Tallulah on Thames 3 stars and one of those is for the wine. Service extremely slow even for the dining experience. Our wine was gone before we got our meal because we waited a very long time to be served each course. First course we both had the scallop crudo which only has one word to describe... More

The finest dining experience in Newport means you may have to wait a bit while they craft your artwork on a plate. But it's totally worth it. Great knowledgable, friendly staff. Dishes that knock our socks off every time we visit. (We get to come here twice a year.) for us, it's the top dining experience in Newport. Make a... More

my boyfriend took me here, one of the restaurants that I have always died to try- I have been for a dinner there as well which was a great experience. (trash fish dinner). The tasting menu is such a well- worth it experience. The Chef and his wife care about every guests experience and always come out to say hi... More

First things first: I really liked the food at Tallulah, and the waitress was great. Unfortunately, other aspects of the dining experience really hurt the overall experience (I'm giving it a 3 rating, but that's just an average of some 1s and some 5s). We were seated on time, and were quickly provided water and, relatively quickly, a bottle of... More

I couldn't believe this place is ranked #11, if you took off one of the 1's in eleven and it was ranked #1, I would be less surprised. I have been too many times to count and I can tell you one thing, the food is ridiculous, and this is one very talented chef. Granted it's a seasonal tasting menu... More

Took my girlfriend here for our 5 year anniversary since she's been dying to go. Turns out we knew the waitress and that kicked off a great evening. We ordered the 4 course menu (sort of like a la cart during restaurant week) for $68 pp and we got a bottle of wine. They serve more than 4 courses and... More

Tallulah on Thames is a small storefront restaurant with an open kitchen. The Prix Fix menu allows you to choose 4 courses, and you can choose to have wine paired with each course, which we did. Each course had 4 choices, and at least one choice was vegetarian. I had an excellent butternut squash dish to start, and followed it... More

My wife and I thought this place was very good. We had the four course menu but we still had plenty of choice. The food was very well cooked and was bursting with flavour plus the wine parings with each course were excellent. It's a bit different to the standard fare in newport and we would definitely recommend it.

Having toured New England longing for a good dinner without fries the Tallulah was like Heaven. We enjoyed every bite and will bring the very best recommendation to our friends (also in Denmark). Thank you to the entire Tallulah Team - you made a great difference !
