Talulas has been on my go to list for a year and a half. Known people who've gone there, worked there, all rave. After that much hype, rarely does a restaurant meet the bar. But Talulah's did. Great service. Great wines. The brioche start -...More

No, not gruel....spatchcock chicken please. The crispy skin, the grilled peaches, the fennel, the mustard sauce. My words would not be able to do it justice. The scallop dish with beets was delicious too! And the cheese plate. And the crudo! And the sundae and...More

Food for brunch should be hot and homemade, and this was. Enjoyed coffee from a French press on the table, and generous portions of hot, fresh local food. The mismatched plates and silverware gave the whole place a great relaxed and whimsy feel. We will...More

The weather was gorgeous and the setting is lovely. The food was overly complex - meaning that there was just too much going on taste wise and it was not that tastey, though I really wanted to enjoy it. The chopped salad had an odd...More

This was my first time here. Someone else made the reservation a month in advance. She said it's not easy to get a reservation, so I would suggest planning ahead. I enjoyed the appetizers the best (I ate pasta, not a main dish). The fried...More

If you go to Talula's Garden, try to eat outside on a nice summer night. There is no other place like this in Philadelphia. The staff is friendly and efficient and knowledgeable which is a rare combination. We started with a cheese platter with some...More

We were dining pre-theater, so convenient to the Forrest! Sadly, the weather didn't cooperate so we were unable to dine on the patio. We were graciously reseated at a window table so we could people watch looking out onto the park. Several fun specialty cocktails,...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.
