This place would be great in the summer - outside garden overlooking Washington Square. In January, the inside has a rustic/homey feel. Food was very good but need more true salads. Those on the menu are a bit too esoteric for a normal eater. It is VERY noisy; it was full but we could not hear our server at all.... More

Having read multiple rave reviews, we were excited to visit Talula's Garden during an evening in Philadelphia. The ambiance and service were both quite impressive, however the main dishes were somewhat lackluster. Would give it another chance, if only for drinks and cheese plate!!

Went there for brunch. Nice, quiet environment. Friendly, courteous service. The food was good, portions large. The French toast looks like half a loaf of cinnamon covered bread, filled with cheese. Enough for two! Most dishes on the brunch side could be shared. Fresh oj, good coffee! A good value for the money!

Make a reservation at least 2 weeks in advance because this place is packed! They only seat when everyone in your party has arrived. You'll muscle your way to a spot at the bar but things thin out around 8. Loved everything we had and also great they have a small plate and full entree size ordering option. Lots of... More

New Year's Eve Dinner for two, chef's tasting was absolutely fabulous!! To give you a perspective on this place, a couple next to us traveled up from Washington DC just to eat dinner there. Atmosphere was great, service was outstanding, overall an excellent choice.

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.
