My wife and I are fan of Talia’s and we love Talia’s very diversified menu. There is something for everyone on their menus. It's definitely more of American and Middle Eastern cuisines; but they also have terrific salads. My wife loves The Thai beef salad and I love thee Moroccan salmon. If you crave fish, this is the place. You can get a hearty, firm-flesh fish, grilled, sautéed or broiled salmon with two sides and… appetizer for $28. Good prices, portions and wonderful food. I will definitely visit Talia’s more than twice next week to enjoy the nine days menu which contains more than five types of fish. Talia’s 9 days menu last year was one of best nine days menu in kosher restaurant in Manhattan. The service is professional but sometimes you have to wait about half an hour for your main dish and therefore my wife and I start with an appetizer of Middle Eastern platter combo platter - regular hot dog, 1 spicy hot dog, 2 chicken fingers, Moroccan cigar and kibbeh with tahini sauce. The ambiance is very romantic, warm and cozy outdoor and indoor dining areas. Highly recommended!
Celebrated my daughter’s birthday at Talia’s Steakhouse last night. We live in Central Jersey so we don’t travel too often for kosher restaurants in Manhattan. Our expectations were set high for a night in the city. Suffice to say, Talia’s exceeded our expectations. There was live music and we got to sit in their sidewalk café and enjoy the beautiful weather. We all shared the Fry Trio basket to start, which was a great choice. My prime rib was excellent. My wife and daughter loved their Veal Scaloppini. Our 6 year old couldn’t get enough of his chicken fingers. For dessert, the wait staff brought out warm chocolate soufflé with a birthday candle and sang Happy Birthday with help from the live musician. It was a perfect way to end the night. Would definitely be back again.
The other day the weather was finally beautiful, and my friend and I were walking past Talia’s outdoor café, so we decided to have an early dinner. We had an extremely pleasant experience. It was not too crowded yet, but there was a mixed young crowd, couples and some business men, and everybody seemed to be having a good time. The service was extremely good, and our waitress took our order the minute we finished looking over our menus and brought our drinks right away. The food was served nice and hot, and we were so full after we finished that we almost didn’t have room for desert, but we couldn’t refuse a chocolate soufflé! I felt very satisfied with my experience at Talia’s and will definitely be back many more times!
