our party of six was seated in the main dining room with the bar. The noise level was such that you could not hear the person seated next to you.

We went for after-dinner drinks. The bartender made some great drinks. Dirty martini was excellent! The outside seating looked to be nice. We went right before closing, so we just sat at the bar. Very friendly place.

A tad pricey. Depending on drinks and appetizers you should expect to spend $100+ for a couple easily

"Elegant in its simplicity, Tallulah Wine Bar & Bistro offers an uncluttered setting that matches its concise menu of fresh, contemporary American fare and an eclectic wine list." -Molly Abraham the concept behind tallulah was born out of a love for wine, food and friends. The idea was to offer our guests a unique, comfortable experience, something reminiscent of that special dinner party at a favorite friend's house. We wanted to create a dining experience not just for our community but for ourselves. At tallulah, we have created a menu reflecting our commitment to simple, elegant, seasonal food - our farm to table approach. Reaching beyond the normal standards, we choose purveyors who encourage a growing trend toward healthier and environmentally responsible living by practicing sustainable, all natural, and/or organic farming practices. We're proud to offer an approachable, exceptional, diverse selection of wines. Our goal is to help you find the perfect wine to suit your individual palate. We try not to limit ourselves to particular areas or varietals, rather we seek a balance of old world and new world producers, appellations, and styles offering the traditional and the avant garde. Our wine and food program is about making you, our guest, happy. Our staff shares our excitement for what the pairing of great wine and food can bring. Whether it's a classic or off-beat pairing, we're always happy to talk about our food and our wine.
