Fantastic selection of cheeses create a wonderful cheese plate appetizer to graze on while enjoying an inspiring selection of cocktails and wine. Everything is fresh and delicious, including the featured salad. Sampled 2 half orders of homemade pasta, the smoked corn ravioli and the ricotta gnudi, both were wonderful and full of flavor. Others at the table had the Seared... More

Can't say enough about this place. Local and sustainably sourced ingredients, outstanding flavors. Knowledgable (and patient) staff. Collard greens - never have we tasted greens like these. My wife and I ate salads and our kids split pasta and the pork chop (the pork chop was even better the next day). The greens served with the chop could have been... More

Atmosphere is wonderful, open style w/linen and china. Patio is optimum in the middle of Washington square. Food was very good and the wait staff were impeccable. Reservation is highly recommended.

Lovely, relaxed atmosphere with a seasonal menu that changes often. I've been here several times and there is always something new and unusual to try. The service is good , but unobtrusive, which I like.

This is one of the best places to go for a really nice meal. Great menu though a little pricier. They even have a Cheese Monger on staff to impress your guests (and the cheese flights are wonderful!). For a special occasion, go on a nice day and ask for a seat in the twinkle-lit courtyard. Been there a few... More

This was our 2nd favorite meal in Philly. Talula's Garden is located off Washington square, in an Art Deco building. We were lucky to get a seat in their beautiful garden. The brunch menu looked great, and was hard to decide what to try. We enjoyed the burger and monte cristo, along with the doughnuts. Portions were generous. The service... More

Fabulous restaurant and location in the Washington Square area. We arrived and asked if we could sit in the Garden/Patio area. We were told it would be a 40 minute wait (only 30), so we had a drink at the very beautiful outdoor bar. Fantastic service by every employee. The food was amazing!! We will definitely go back when we... More
