Great vegetarian options, I've had the daily/weekly special the last two times. The fries are amazing too. Enjoy a multi-course meal with great apps, sides, entrees, desserts, and drinks.

The restaurant is tucked further back in Cap Hill so parking is easier.

I like Tallulah's and have eaten there several times. However, it has become progressively noisier over the months -- at our recent visit for Saturday Brunch, our party of 4 had difficulty hearing each other despite the fact that we were sitting together at a small table.

Yummy brunch. I had eggs with bacon and a muffin; delicious and prepared to my liking. The only downside is that it is very loud. Don’t bring anyone who is hard of hearing.

Tallulah's is consistently excellent. I had arranged ahead of time for help from the server to make a surprise delivery to my companion. They were happy to accommodate and very helpful and truly pleasant. I requested a specific table and was not disappointed. The evening was perfect. While my most recent visit was on a quiet night, generally the volume of the venue is louder than it was.

Have just had one of the best meals/happy hours at Tallulah's yet. Have been here upwards of a dozen times, for dinner, happy hour, and brunch, and most of my experiences have been very good to great. This time, it was outstanding, from non-intrusive but very effective/well-timed service, to amazing dishes (had the gazpacho, shishito peppers, beat salad, and heirloom cucumbers), and delicious drinks. Add a sunny (sigh, one of the last ones) day, and it was a pretty perfect light veggie hh/dinner snack. I will be back, and soon.

Since I live close-by Tallulah's is on my heavy rotation list. For awhile dinner was inconsistent and brunch excellent with occasional issues around seating and kitchen wait time. Now morning, noon and night the crew is hitting all the right notes. I am huge fan of healthy options. My gf and like to share plates, we usually combine a good for you entree with a something a little more out of the usual. Last week we split the trout and a seasonal salad, A- on the both fronts. Lastly, space can't be beat for light (lots of it) and the decor (mid-century sleek).

Our group of four enjoyed our first visit to Tallulah's. We all had the lamb burger and agreed with our wait person's recommendation to have it cooked medium; however, we all felt that the burger was cooked rare and was cold in the middle. French fries were cooked and seasoned to perfection!

Tallulah's never disappoints. Four of us had a great meal, sharing a range of dishes, mostly vegetarian. We had great cocktails. The ambiance is eclectic and sophisticated all at once. Service was good.

It's also a great breakfast/brunch destination. And the outdoor seating in the summer is lovely.

The food was okay, a bit pricey for quality and quantity, but the service was... perhaps the worst I've had in Seattle. Which after 5 years is saying something. Our waitress literally was clearly not having a good day. Which I understand. However, upon being tabled she didn't introduce herself and threw silverware and napkins on the table when we arrived and walked off. When we placed orders she barely engaged, and then when done she tossed the receipt and pen on our table walked off. It was perhaps the sole dining experience where I didn't want to tip but did because I try to be descent person.

This was our second time at Talullah's and every bit as good as our first time. My wife and I shared three dishes--roasted cauliflower, grilled asparagus, and a sweet potato and black bean bowl. Everything was excellent. Our two friends both had the trout and were very pleased with it. My wife and I, both vegetarians, were pleased with how many vegetarian options were offered. And I was pleased with the amount of vegan options there were. The place is very casual with a well-used out door area. The service was perfect, very efficient and friendly, without being intrusive.
