I have been to Talisman previously and thoroughly enjoyed their cuisine and ambiance. Pleasant and knowledgeable staff, fantastic food and drinks. However, I had an unpleasant experience during my last visit. Everything was perfect, until the band started playing. They were extremely loud and were singing the most outdated and depressing music. The group I was with had to stop our conversation because we could not hear each other and eventually we hurried up and left. I understand the need for variety but please either play soft background music, and if it is a band, please let it be instrumental only sans the booming guitar solos...for conversation's sake. On a positive note, the drummer in the band was fantastic.
