We stumbled upon this lovely open garden style eatery unexpectedly and without reservations. Despite the size of our group (8) and age range (teens, 20's , 40's, 70's & 80's) their menu was wonderfully creative -even accommodating some unusual substation requests. Drinks robust and unique...More

I feel the popularity of Talula's belies its mediocrity. The food was good and competently-made but nothing left me dreaming of return visits. The "Peaches and Bacon" appetizer was disappointing- it should have just been called "Peaches and Some Other Stuff" as there was a...More

Talula's Garden is our favorite restaurant in Philly when the weather cooperates with outdoor dining. Indoor nice too but our choice for early evening summer dining. Most special is the multiple choice cheese boards which is truly special and management gets congratulation on sourcing. Wine...More

We sat at the oyster bar and enjoyed watching the shockers. The oysters were fabulous. And the crab cake is not to be missed. Great experience!

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.
