Splendid little farm to table restaurant tucked away in a park-like setting in the historic district of Philly. Service is attentive without being obtrusive and the ambience is sophisticated yet relaxed

Was a good experience, dining in a fine restaurant. It was a bit crowded & noisy, but the food was extraordinarily scrumptious. Good dessert choices, as well. The staff was so thorough & friendly. There's an outdoor section also, but we preferred to be indoors....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.
