The food & service both excellent. It was raining the day we went but the garden would have been great to eat in. The food is a mix of interesting seasonings. Really great ambience. Looking forward to coming back in October.

Great outdoor patio for dining in the summer months. Indoor space is very nice also. Amazing farm to table food options, Portions are big enough to share if you want to try multiple plate options, I recommend going that route as the food is VERY tasty!

Party of 6 met for dinner and had a great meal. Cheese and entree selections were very nice and wait staff was very professional. Pasta and the 1/2 chicken main was shared by my wife and I. That was more more than we could eat. So do not feel compelled to order multi course meals unless you are sharing. Prices... More

This restaurant is the whole package... It's beautiful (especially the garden in nice weather!), the food is absolutely amazing. (Get the Mushroom Soup if it's on the menu.) And the staff makes sure that your entire experience is wonderful! This truly is a 5 STAR restaurant!

Talula's Garden is consistently lovely with great food and warm, efficient service. Just entering through the garden with it's whimsical fountains sets the tone. Enjoy dining inside or out with creative selections. Their amazing cheese selection is unique. Reliable and special for any occasion.

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.
