    Most of the food was good. The shrimp tostada had no flavor. Entrees were served on cold plates that made the mole cold, also needed a bit more spice to it too. Service was fair, maybe needed more staff. Food took a long time to come out of the kitchen

    From this past experience, the wait staff is always in hurry and does not patiently provide recommendations or specials if there were any. We love the food here but the service was a bit off this time around.

    I loved the vegan options! my girlfriend was enjoying the ceviche tremendously but unfortunately, a large piece of Serrano pepper was in there and burned her mouth enough to where she could not finish the dish. We will def go back here as overall the food and service were great!

    This was the send time after the renovation. The food was very good. The Queso dip. Tacos and the octopus. Service was a little slow , place was very busy. I didn’t like that I had a reservation and they sat me at a Bar table. Other than that. Everything was very good.

    The remodeling is beautiful, drinks amazing. The food is not the same as before, and I’ve had to ask them to bring the tortillas as they forget to bring them when we arrive. The tortilla soup is very poor quality, and the flavor is now different. The guacamole looks like they buy it in bag and isn’t made in house, and the chicharron is chewy. I’ve eaten there three times in the last 20 days and I am very disappointed in the quality of the food

    Food was ok. Had the Grilled Cesar which was very good but overpriced at $13.00. Also $14 each for classic margaritas that were mostly ice also way overpriced. Very loud and packed in. The remodel was ok to update it but the entrance was confusing and the decor was basic. Nothing fancy. Lost its Mexican charm from before.

    New remodel looks nice, but did notice significant less food being served, and they never served that much. Don’t fool customers that way, much rather increase the prices a bit, guacamole was so small, and the tacos barely any meat. They guard the penny and toss out the dollar.

    Remodel of the restaurant is very well done. They removed the old booths and opened up the dining area. The important thing is that the kitchen was putting out really good food. Take note, they no longer serve flour tortillas. The corn tortillas are very flavorful and I consider less filling. We can’t wait to get back.

    With the remodeling behind, I was apprehensive that things would change in the look and was afraid in the kitchen too, but I was pleasantly surprised they did a great job with the remodeling and kept the same great tasting food. Portions are smaller but I will blame the economy and hopefully things will be back to normal in 3-6 months. Will be back again

    Do not hesitate to visit this authentic Mexican food restaurante with proposals from the Oaxaca region. The menu is short, however, it has key dishes to make the experience wonderful. The ambiance, the service and the quality of food were fantastic. If you are looking for a challenge, maybe you are up to try some insects. No dudes en visitar este restaurante de auténtica comida mexicana con propuestas de la región de Oaxaca. El menú es corto, sin embargo, tiene platos clave para que la experiencia sea maravillosa.

    This is Talavera 2.0, gone is the Mexican ambiance as it has been remodeled to look more like a steakhouse, decor is okay yet miss the color and flavor of the original Talavera. Gone are freshly made chips and salsa, seriously? Still the best Guacamole yet they are served with Chicharrones, in our opinion not a good substitute for fresh made chips and we had to ask for Pícot de Gallo. Francisco was amazing, attentive and gave us an education on top shelf Tequila, we’ll be back to try it however opted instead for beer and mojito. Enjoy!
