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.

Had a great meal last evening....reviews are spot on that it's a good choice in Philly. Arrived on time and had a short wait for our table (hostesses kept checking on us to make sure we had a drink/coats checked/etc) Started with the "Made in America" Cheese Board- really, really well done with just enough of each sample to wet...

Wow, to me this may very well be the "non plus ultra" of eateries. I went to Philly for a quick look at the Liberty Bell and found myself badly in need of some fare. I must confess that I cheated on my trusted Tripadvisor and used my other app to find this place. Never did I imagine that it... More

We visited Talula's Garden after reading the reviews in the United Airlines magazine on our way over from New Zealand, which talked about the fresh flavours & exciting menu. We weren't disappointed! We were greeted warmly and throughout the evening had outstanding service form a team of waiting staff, who were always attentive and never intrusive. We tried the tasting... More

I chose Talula's Garden from the great reviews on trip advisor and it did not disappoint. I came here for a first date and the meal was perfect from start to finish. I am vegetarian and we ordered the sweet breads which my date loved and I tasted(much to my dismay they are meat not bread) I simply mentioned this... More

We went there on a Monday night at 5pm! Two days after Valentines day. No on there when we walked in but it was crowded when we left. A perfect time. We could hear each other without shouting, enjoy the decor, and, hear everything our fantastic waiter, Justin, had to say. He knew the menu inside and out and really... More

I came here for dinner with a friend. I got a wow effect when i walked in the entrance because they had the CUTEST little garden in front of the restaurant where you can sit in the summer time. The staff were ALL very friendly and helpful and just wonderful. The food was very very delicious, but I didn´t have... More

Dear Fellow Travelers, This restaurant is wonderful. Upon entering the patio, guests are greeted with white lights hanging down the side walls intwined in greenery. The decor of the restaurant sets the stage for grand dining. To begin with the service was excellent. Andrea is an articulate and attentive server without hovering too much. She is a Spanish teacher by... More
