Sat in the garden for dinner. It was a nice, peaceful atmosphere. The tables were on top of each other. I personally don't like to hear the conversation of the couple right next to me. Food was ok. Ordered the lamb belly. Presentation was better than the taste. Fell flat of expectations. Portions were tiny. Drinks were watered down. Service... More

Beautiful setting and great service. Very high quality ingredients but some courses just had too much going on. Also seemed more expensive then it should have been.

Great options for food -... More

My husband has been wanting to take me to Talula's for quite some time - for our 26th anniversary we made the time. I happy to say I'd go out of my way to go again. The atmosphere is trendy but not overbearing, inviting but still a bit elegant. We splurged on the chef's tasting - another reviewer did an... More

I really wanted to give this place five stars, but there were a couple of courses that just missed the mark. My husband and I had been looking forward to coming for months; the restaurant looked adorable in the pictures and did not disappoint in person. There is a beautiful courtyard area outside where I would have loved to dine,... More

It's hard for a diner to recover from a food experience gone awry, but management can save face if it's properly handled. After posting the review Here's the Nitty Gritty, we received a full refund for our meal. It is commendable and much appreciated. Note to Management: Had it been done that evening, it would have helped alleviate that bad... More

Dined here for my wife's birthday. We had an 8pm reservation and were promptly seated. There is a beautiful outdoor seating area with heaters but it is on a first come basis even with a reservation. If you can wait a little extra it looks like it would be worth it. We started with the 6 cheese selection board. They... More

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.
