The restaurant is an old house on the main street. We were seated in a back room with about three other tables. It's an attractive setting. Service was attentive. The entrees were excellent--I had a scallops risotto and my wife had short ribs. Neither of us could finish because the portions were so large. The wine list is short but... More

Enjoyed a great meal for our anniversary. Try the calamari appetizer and tuna entree. Both were very good. We were seated in a side room with 5 tables for couples. Much quieter than the main dining area, which was much noisier. Comfortable ambiance. As it was our anniversary, the restaurant surprised us with 2 glasses of champagne. Very nice customer... More

We had an excellent dinner at 208 Talbot. The food was terrific, the service was wonderful. If you are in the St. Michael's area, it's a must stop for dinner. You'll be very glad you did!

The reviews for 208 Talbots's were excellent and we confirmed them. Our meals were superb. The veal scaloppini was excellent and the portion size was just right. We uncharacteristically had some of their home made deserts - bread pudding and sorbet and they were both excellent. Dinner with desert for two with bottled water was just under $100 before tip....

Had salads and apps here this week and was happy to get in considering its ranking on Tripadvisor. Maybe it was just a case of making the wrong selection because my wife and I had different opinions. I thought the beet salad was ordinary and the New Orleans oysters nothing special. On the other hand she loved the 208 salad... More

Subdued lights and warmly colored walls makes this a cozy place--suitable for a romantic dinner. I got started on a fresh spinach and beet salad, which offered more than I could responsibly digest given the ensuing entree. The veal scallopini was also a generous portion but too cautiously spiced for my taste. Fresh black pepper improved it. Good quality wines... More
