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 artful cuisine, hospitable staff, sustainable spirits, and a focus on cheese make the dining experience here incredibly memorable.

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.

Awesome! Simply amazing! Don't miss the figs with mascarpone and olive oil cake for the dessert. The maitre and waiters are very professional and kind. The service is fast. I barely wait for 15 minutes for the appetizers. Hint: Ask for a seat in the outside garden (if the climate allows). It's fabulous!

Lots of fun - good food, excellent service and well appointed drinks. Management runs a tight ship and knows how to run a restaurant. Good variety of appetizers and main courses. Atmosphere is lively. Would definitely return.

Wonderful venue. We ate inside because the garden was full. By 8 pm on a Tuesday evening every table was full. That indicates strong value for the money. The menu was enjoyable. We liked the first course option for a full or half plate. For lighter eaters an app and half plate was popular. Food was very good. We enjoyed... More

I have eaten in many of Mr. Starr's restaurants and by far this is the one I will go back to because I want to go back. Portions are smaller than I'd want for the price of the meal, but the food was amazing, the outdoor garden area was beautiful and relaxing to engage in conversation with friends and just... More
