We chose Tallulah on Thames for our 5-year anniversary dinner and it was the perfect choice.
I was slightly annoyed when we were seated because I had called a month in advance and asked for a nice table for our anniversary and we were seated right next the kitchen but any annoyance I had faded immediately when our server came to the table. Sweet, funny and highly knowledgable, she only added to our experience. She was there when we needed her but never hovered.
I chose the 3-course tasting menu for $60 and my husband ordered a la carte. Each course that came out was beautifully presented, spaced out and seasoned to perfection. The tomato bisque with lobster grilled cheese was pure deliciousness and the mussels with chorizo were incredibly tender. For entrées we had the hangar steak and the carrot agnolotti and neither of us wanted to share because they were so perfectly done. I saved room for dessert and was not disappointed with the peach-tarragon tarte in puff pastry. Every bite was better than the next.
My ONLY complaint (besides the table situation) is the fact that there is a very limited selection of wine by the glass. The wine by the bottle list is extensive but as I was the only one having wine that evening I was just looking for a single glass. And this small thing still doesn't warrant a star off the rating.
You can tell that Tallulah is a labor of love as each little detail from the menu to the coffee creamer to the cigar boxes is exceptionally well thought out. Two days later we are still reminiscing about our meal and look forward to returning.
