I've been to The Talk twice now, and I can say with certainty that it is one of the most welcoming, friendly restaurants I've ever patronized. It's dark inside, but the warm atmosphere keeps everything upbeat. The first meal I had there was with my brother-in-law, for dinner about a year a go. We enjoyed it enough that when said brother-in-law came back to town with his family, I didn't have to think twice about where we would go.
It was short notice, but we were able to get a reservation for six at 7:30 the same day I called. The young woman who took the reservation said it might take a few more minutes once we arrived, but she would take care of us. And she did. We had to wait for about 10 minutes before we got our table, but it was worth the wait. We were shown to our table in our own private room, formerly a bank vault. We could not have been more delighted since the main room was full and a bit noisy. This room/vault, allowed us to visit with our out of town family and we could converse without the need for shouting.
The six of us ordered from all over the menu, with some having fish, some meat, some salad and some pasta. I had the Mediterranean Chicken, a generous portion of medallions sauteed with sun dried tomatoes, spinach, onions and mushrooms, topped with feta cheese and olives, served over pilaf. It was served hot and fresh. The chicken was tender. The flavors melded beautifully. The lamb kebabs were cooked to order, well-done, as my husband prefers. Those, too were perfectly seasoned and delicious. The broiled scrod had a dusting of bread crumbs for a crunch before the tender fish below. My brother in law's Penne a la vodka had a nice kick to the sauce and proved too much for a hearty eater to finish. The salads were fresh and big enough to share. We ordered wine by the glass that complimented our meals and was reasonably priced.
All of us were happy with our choices and impressed with the service.
I know we will return to The Talk because we were treated like honored guests. The owners and staff should be proud of the jobs they do.
