After having an issue in our relationship I asked my friend to dinner here. I went all out ordering the chef's tasting menu and the wine flight. Courses were excellent, just the right amount and superbly plated. The wine flights paired nicely with the courses. Oh yes, Talula's Garden helped me cinch the deal...we've been together ever since! Going to... More

It's always a challenge going to a restaurant on your own so I picked one with outstanding reviews. I don't like to be so out of step but this was frankly very disappointing. Was given a table away from the main restaurant next to the waiters station. Not a great welcome for someone by themselves. Beer served in 12oz cans... More

In my view, this is one of the real gems in downtown Philadelphia. Consistently excellent and often underrated by the "experts". Yes, the rate it high - I think it should be higher!! Treat yourself - do the tasting menu with the wine pairing and be prepared for a great evening!! You will not be dissapointed!!

On a beautiful February evening Talula's Garden opened their outdoor space- so delightful and cozy with heat lamps. Wide selection of reasonably priced wine by the bottle. Staff was very familiar with menu including the cheeses available for cheese plates. We shared a chopped salad which was plentiful for two after complimentary pepper brioche. Hubby had lamb shoulder which was... More

We had such a wonderful meal. We ordered a cheese plate after dinner and before dessert. It was stellar. Great wait staff. Friendly and helpful. I'm thinking that we should make Talula's Garden an every Saturday night thing!

Talula's receives very good reviews, so we (group of 4) decided to check it out for brunch. It was a dreary, rainy day, but I can imagine how beautiful the outdoor seating is on a warm day. The inside is also really pretty. Wade, our server, did a wonderful job. He was patient and cooperative, when we requested his assistance... More

It's a rare venue that works for whatever you need. Drinks after work, business dinner, closing that 3rd date deal... or just a lovely meal. Most favorite Philly restaurant.

The atmosphere was really lovely. The brunch entree prices are really high and the food was okay but there seemed to be a mismatch between price and value. The crispy Brussels sprouts looked beautiful on the Eggs Benedict but their taste seemed to compete with the rest of the dish. The egg with brisket gravy was served with a delicious... 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.
