Tallula's in Chapel Hill

On Yelp there's some griping about the wait staff. This comment sums it up:

"They are, in short, haughty, rude, and snobby."

The consensus is that the food is good, if albeit overpriced, but the service spoils the experience.

Has that been your experience? I'd like to give it a try but I don't want to deal with a haughty wait staff.

    I was there November with a group of 16 and the staff was very polite and helpful.

      My experience is exactly the opposite. We dine there at least once a month, often for brunch on the weekend. The waitstaff, particularly the young woman from the Black Sea coast of Turkey, are professional and adept. In the evening, often crowded during student-y weekends with music, it can get hectic, but if one goes to Franklin Street restaurants on Saturday nights one needs to expect strange. A couple of Yelps do not a serious opinion make.

        I have to say, my experience with the staff lately has been mostly very positive (and I agree about the Turkish woman - she's really great). Doesn't matter whether it is my husband and me, or my 6 year old daughter and me - we get treated politely and with welcoming arms (not always true when you have a child with you).
