Sunday brunch on a lovely day. The little garden, with perhaps eight or ten tables, is charming. The service was impeccable and the food, delicious. I had a cheese board and some truly wonderful crepes with figs. Excellent, strong coffee. This place, although on the expensive side, is well worth it for the quality of the food, excellence of service,... More

Talula's Garden was just steps from our hotel, and it turned out to be a great evening. Service was excellent - just the right amount of attention without being overbearing. The food was delicious - though prices are high. We sat indoors because it was very windy outside, but the garden looked lovely.

Last night our party of 4 had the pleasure to dine at Talula’s. While all the courses were outstanding the “above and beyond” service is something to be celebrated. It is immediately evident that the staff and management are not just working here they are truly proud and engaged in the product they serve and service they provide. Upon the... More

First class service. You will need a reservation for this delightful restaurant where the food is really delicious. Garden seating is not necessary so don't worry if there isn't any available when you arrive because the inside atmosphere is great anyway. Highly recommended.

If the weather permits ask to sit in outside garden, it's lovely. We were a party of 8, so decided to order some brunch starters..the ricotta doughnuts (truly delicious and still warm) and the bakery trio. It was a perfect way to begin. The Benedict special was fantastic. Our waiter as well as the support staff were relaxed, funny and... More

If you are lucky to have the chance to sit outside under the heat lights you are in for a wonderful surprise! At night the little lights along the wall light up to show the shadows of the vines making this one of the most romantic and beautiful restaurant of Philadelphia. The staff was attentive and friendly. The food was... More

There are many fine restaurants in Philadelphia, and elsewhere of course, but Talula's Garden is right up there with the best anywhere, really. The menu is very creative and the execution is perfect. The service is attentive but not obnoxious. Extensive use of local and fresh ingredients. And the atmosphere and decor is very relaxing and casual, yet elegant at... More

I had not been to TG since it opened in 2011. At that time we were not blown away by the food nor service. I was pleasantly surprised as it was my Mother in Laws 80th Birthday and it was a very special evening. The room is very earthy and lovely it is casually elegant and it has some elements... More

There are a lot of great places to eat in Philly and this is certainly one of them. A lot of healthy options and a great selection of cheeses, friendly staff with great recommendations and a farm to table type of experience are the best things about this place. It's a little pricey but worth the treat. Don't forget the... More

Ideal combination of great food, lovely setting and very knowledgable and helpful wait staff. Entrees were unusual and perfect portion sizes. Nice crowd buzz too.
