This was one of the best meals/experiences I have had dining, and that says a lot. We loved the look and feel of the place. Service was prompt and efficient, but Josh stood out as outstanding! Knowledgeable and personable, he really enhanced the experience with his wine knowledge. We chose the chefs tasting menu, and for $100 sound a little... More

Everything was delightful during our Sunday brunch! From the attentive service, generous portions and delicious dishes. I especially loved seeing a non- alcoholic lime, ginger, turmeric cooler on the menu. ''Twas bubbly and refreshing. The eggs Benedict and the frittata with local ingredients were absolutely mouth watering good. And I personally swooned over the smashed avocado toast with cucumber salad... More

Went here at a recommendation by a restauranteur in Delaware who frequents it when in Philadelphia. Highly recommended. Great food, ambiance and impeccable service. Will definitely return.

We booked here using Open Table (almost essential if you want to eat at the popular places) and it was pleasant enough. Good service (it really has to be if 20% is the generally expected gratuity) and good food with reasonable choice of wine by the glass

Reading the menus online made me feel slightly apprehensive about this place. The combinations of ingredients sounded jarring. I can't believe we nearly cancelled our reservation on that basis ie. we weren't sure we wanted to eat anything we saw! We shouldn't have been concerned as the flavours are excellent and the cooking was delicious. My friend had chicken with... More

We have celebrated many special occasions in the last several years at this very sophisticateed restaurant. The staff and chef have gone out of their way to accommadate my dietary restrictions and have always come up large in satisfying my needs without sacrificing flavor. The only fly in the ointment is the noise level if you eat inside of the... More

Outstanding menu and service. Promptly seated and served. The cheese tray was great and the entrees were delicious. Not cheap but is anything great cheap?

We have been to Talula's Garden for dinner a few times and always enjoy it. This time we came for a birthday brunch and was extremely happy with everything. We had to wait a few minutes for our table, but it was very crowded, so it was understandable and we were pleased with the table. Our server was attentive without... More

We were here on business and got invited out to Talula's Garden. So, this was a first time experience for all in our party. Definitely a restaurant you would see on the travel or food network. Very upscale for this diner and dive kind of girl. The mood was dim....literally dim if you are older you will need to figure... More

We went to Talula's on a Friday night, The food was excellent and they were very accommodating in switching out some menu side items in our meals. The Staff was very knowledgeable and courteous. The one comment I have Is that it was very noisy. The tables are very close together and it seemed hard to have a nice conversation... More

Description
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.
