“Asian-influenced restaurant, great service, worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

We visited Talento recently, as we were having cravings for Asian-inspired food. First, the service is excellent - very attentive, and the device they give you at the table to be able to call the waiter if you need anything worked - any time we pushed it, we had a waiter at our table within seconds.

On the food - we had the "popcorn" sweet and sour shrimp and the shrimp and tuna tartare to start. Both were very tasty, especially the popcorn shrimp if you like sauces on the sweeter side. We also had the whole duck (based on Peking duck) and the sesame-seared tuna. The duck, although not the authentic version of Peking duck, was a welcome reminder of what we had when we lived in Beijing. I would recommend this to a group as a starter, and would say you should think of this as "duck tacos". The tuna was good - the noodles that came with it were excellent, but the pile of fried beets could have been smaller.

The service was really top-notch, really pleasant.

If you are expecting Asian-inspired food and excellent service, you will get it here. If you want 100% authentic dishes exactly like you might find in the country of origin, then you might be disappointed. We had a great experience, and we will return.

“A Thai fusion menu and very nice owners and waiters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

We were treated to dinner here by our Mexican friends and have returned several times since. The food is excellent, but if you're looking for true Thai, you might be disappointed. That said, the menu is filled with wonderful, beautifully presented things to eat and the atmosphere and wine list is great.

“Falta de Talento”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2011

This place was an incredible disappointment. They are supposed to be fusion w/ Thai. Their Pad Thai was just spagetti with shrimp. Could have been italian. When I tried to see what curries they had, the waiter told me this dish has a bit or red curry and a bit of green curry and a bit of yellow curry. Ordering it I could not really taste any. Imagine a Mexican place where you order a mole and they tell you well we use a bit of mole poblano, oaxacan, pipian but not enough for you to taste any.

Their advertising reminds one more of a steakhouse than Asian fusion. Avoid this place
