The portions are large and the food is excellent. Also, great cocktail menu. We will definitely return to Talula's when visiting our son at Villanova.

After arriving in Philadelphia, we headed to Talulah's Garden for a delicious and enjoyable dinner. Nalini, our server, was genuinely welcoming and informative about their eclectic menu. We dined on the delicious apple cheddar salad, park belly and seafood potluck and enjoyed every bite. We...More

Booked here for Sunday brunch as a friend was visiting from the UK. We chose to sit outside even though the weather was a bit windy and spitting rain. Waitress was a bit slow with everything but it didn’t really matter. I had pancakes with...More

Got off to a rocky start, as we had reserved a table for four inside. When we arrived we're told a 20 plus minute wait inside but available outside immediately. (It never rained, although threatening, so no harm done; but it set the stage.) Then,...More

On a late fall evening no one was eating outside, so inside was packed. The noise was really bad, I don't like having to shout to make myself heard to someone just three feet away. Incongruously the average age of the other diners was certainly...More

My only regret is that the weather report called for rain so we sat inside the restaurant, which can at times be a little cramped. But the food...oh the food! One of the two best meals I've had in Philadelphia in the last 20 years....More

First off, reserve early and request a "nice table" Food was delicious and creatively prepared. Ceviche appetizer and Crab entrée both very nice. Good desserts and coffee completed a fine dinner. Talula's does have a "precious" element, perhaps due to over-explaining wait staff, although service...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.
