Had a wonderfully prepared, presented and delicious dinner here several weeks ago. Despite the dismal night outside, the warm and welcoming atmosphere of the staff lifted our spirits immediately. The food that evening was a set menu so my dining companion and I ordered different items so we could try a variety. Everything was delicious, small portions, but I prefer... More

Booked this restaurant for a weekend getaway based solely on the good reviews. That was a mistake. Chose from the 'restaurant week' menu. To make a long story short, here are the lowlights: -Inedible appetizer consisting of burnt cauliflower; -main course of chicken that looked only half cooked and wouldn't have fed a cat; -1 hour's wait between appetizer and...

On our most recent trip to Newport, my boyfriend and I selected Tallulah on Thames from among the town's excellent dining options for a special dinner out and I am so glad we did! As we were traveling in March, we were able to get reservations for a Saturday night and could walk from our Inn, which was great. We... More

The 7-course chef's tasting at Tallulah is an experience you must have if you consider yourself a serious fan of fine dining. Chef Jake Rojas has created a series of incredible dishes, perfectly matched with wines, that just blew us away. Noodles made from scallops...foie gras...monkfish...octopus...all beautifully presented. Service was knowledgeable and attentive without being annoying. Timing of courses gave... More

A beautiful, all white decor, crystal chandelier, open-kitchen, 11 table spot. I could stop there, but there's more. What a complete dining experience! There are 3 dining choices for the evening…we did the 3 course selection and ordered wine by the glass. When the butter arrives on your table flanked in 3 different kinds of fresh herb sprigs, you know... More

Ambiance of the restaurant, presentation of the food and service of the staff were all exceptional! Décor and music were comfortable and fun in a way that was unobtrusive. Service was attentive and equally unobtrusive, with each server ready to provide all the details any foodie would want. Each course was as beautifully and artfully presented as it was delicious...

Once again, I tried to contact the restaurant without success. All I ever get is a recorded message. It seems impossible to actually speak with a HUMAN. I was calling to purchase a large dollar amount of Gift Cards as end of year appreciaton for our company employees. However, I chose to purchase from another restaurant down the street from... More

Tallulah on Thames Street is now featuring Taco Lunches on Thurs-Sat from 11-3 p.m. I have been living in Cabo San Lucas for two years and these are the most representative tacos and burritos I've tasted in the States. If you are looking for authentic Mexican cuisine, this is the place.

It is a beautiful restaurant with a prix fixed menu, with 3 choices for $60. It was a 1 page, very limited menu. They were very welcoming and friendly, but this was not the menu that is on tripadvisor. We left and they were very understanding.
