We had a delightful meal at Talula's. Everything is so fresh, and they put a great twist on their dishes that are full of flavor. We got a cheese plate to start, and would highly recommend that. They explain each one in exquisite detail. Had to potato croquettes and they were delicious. Both of us had entree size pasta dishes... More

Atmosphere and decor was wonderful... we sat outside in the garden. Food was fantastic and the little brioche buns topped with butter were outrageously good!

Overall a great experience. Located just off the Washington square park, it is one of the farm to table restaurants available in Philadelphia. They have indoor and outdoor seating (on good days). The food was good and the service was good as well. Selections range quite widely and hence should cater to most pallets. Slightly on the pricey side. They... More

Went to Talula's Garden for our anniversary. I started with the clam chowder and my wife had the ricotta cavatelli, both excellent starters. For dinner, I had the East coast seafood cioppino and my wife had the sea scallops. We were pleased with both. Excellent coffee and service.

Absolutely top notch service, food quality and ambiance. This place has it all dialed in from the minute you walk in. The courtyard dining area is fantastic, although we dined inside. The cheese plate we ordered came out just perfect, with a thorough explanation of each product from our server. We received a nice complementary gesture of champagne from the... More

Really good, interesting menu. Lots of variety. The fish was perfectly prepared. Everything was nicely presented. We were not able to order dessert because we shared a bunch of appetizers first. Very ample plates.

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

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.
