First I must say that the food at Talula's Garden was excellent. My husband ordered the chicken and I had the scallops and calamari. Everything was tender and delicious with mouthwatering sides. The problem was with the staff. We arrived at 5:00 to a pretty...More

Perhaps the last remaining top-of-the-line kitchen that dares to try new dishes backed by expert knowledge. This is the Chez Panisse of Philadelphia. In fact, there are direct quotations of Alice Water's philosophy of food in the offerings at Talula's. Looking forward to dinner there...More

While the menu is chock full of standouts any meal here would be missing out if cheese is left out. The range of the cheese selection is wonderful and the staff can easily guide you to ones that match your tastes!

Enjoyed a business dinner at Talula's- local beer on tap, good cocktails, the salad was world class. All parties enjoyed their Tilefish and filet respectively. The 'garden' is wonderful when candlelit at night and the area is prime for a post-prandial stroll.

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.
