My girlfriend had heard positive buzz about this restaurant, so I called and asked for a reservation for Sunday, when they opened at 10:00. First and foremost, the outside garden area is beautiful. That may be worth a star in and of itself. But for...More

Talulas has been on my go to list for a year and a half. Known people who've gone there, worked there, all rave. After that much hype, rarely does a restaurant meet the bar. But Talulah's did. Great service. Great wines. The brioche start -...More

The weather was gorgeous and the setting is lovely. The food was overly complex - meaning that there was just too much going on taste wise and it was not that tastey, though I really wanted to enjoy it. The chopped salad had an odd...More

This was my first time here. Someone else made the reservation a month in advance. She said it's not easy to get a reservation, so I would suggest planning ahead. I enjoyed the appetizers the best (I ate pasta, not a main dish). The fried...More

We had an amazing experience at Talula's. We started with the crispy curried potato croquettes, which tasted like a little samosa in every bite (awesome) and the fried oysters, also delicious. We then moved on to to the pan-fried potato gnocchi with broccoli rabe -...More

Philadelphia is a city blessed with many fine restaurants so deciding where to eat can become quite challenging. My task was made much easier with the help of Trip Advisor. After poring over numerous restaurant reviews, I decided upon Talula's Garden. Why? This restaurant offers...More

Behind the wrought iron gate, past the herbaceous patio and through the atrium is Talula's Garden, the warm and elegant Washington Square eatery from Aimee Olexy and Starr Restaurants. The modern menu, prepared with carefully-sourced ingredients and a light European touch, changes with the seasons. The artful cuisine, hospitable staff, sustainable spirits, and a focus on cheese make the dining experience here incredibly memorable.
