Always a good meal. Don’t like that they make you wait until everyone in party is there. If 2 of a 4 are there they should be able to wait at table. Not enough places to sit and wait otherwise. Everything else was very nice

Valentine’s date. We had the prime rib and the trout. Our server was Tatiana. I found her to be gracious and accomadating. This is my third time here I’ve been once for brunch and i celebrated my birthday last year with dinner and drinks. I’ve never left disappointed !!

We had a spectacular experience at Talula’s, choosing the chef’s tasting for the evening. Every course blew us away, and we were full by the end of the evening. We opted out of the wine option, but got cocktails from the bar.
The ambiance was lovely, great for a date night, and they brought out a birthday plate for my husband.
5 stars.

Talua's Garden is one of my favorite dining spots in Philadelphia, and a must visit! The service, craft cocktails, and food are all amazing! The attention to detail is effortless. Definitely a party for all the senses. Love their artisan cheese selections and the knowledge the servers have. The aromas, colors, and taste of all the meals we've had were incredible. Definitely a special place!!

All of our food was incredible. This was our first time dining here and it was great. Our server Corey was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu options. We started with a cheese plate... Which was delicious. Then I had the chicken and my husband had the duck entree. Both very tasty. We shared the brussel sprouts side. Highly recommend this place.

I’ve been to Talulah’s Garden several times in the past 6 months- twice for birthdays (one dinner and one brunch), and then once just for a brunch on the weekend. I’m continually impressed by the service of everyone who works here, from the wait staff to the coat check. On top of that, the food is incredible. Everything I’ve tried is delicious; I highly recommend a cheese plate to start out with, and if you save room for dessert, you won’t be disappointed. Definitely check out Talulah’s during the warmer months- sitting outdoors in the garden is one of my favorite parts of the dining experience- but rest assured that the food and service are just as great in the winter!

Excellent food, wine and service from start to finish. We had the World travel cheese tasting appetizer; delicious. Their homemade ravioli with mushrooms melted in your mouth, I can't wait to go back again for that pasta dish. The chicken and prime rib entrees were delicious too. Highly recommend for foodies or special occasion.

This was our second time and the dinner was just wonderful. They have a wonderful cocktail menu and good wine list. We are vegetarian and each enjoyed a delicious pasta dish (one had sardine butter in the ingredients but they modified it form my husband). We also love the sauteed greens. They are amazing! We did not do an appetizer because we wanted to save room for dessert but we were so full that we didn't have any room. The desserts look amazing, too.
We will go back and get three vegie dishes next time and focus on dessert. Or just go one night for dessert and cocktails. When my daughter visits us in a few months this is on our list for a special family meal.

Go for the cheese! My husband and I had an exceptional meal. We arrived at 7:40 pm for our 7:45 reservation and were seated immediately. Our waiter was awesome and very accommodating. My husband has some food allergies and Corey, our server, took excellent care of us. We will be returning in the future.

Had to wait 45 minutes even though i had a reservation. Maitre de was rude, and dismissive when i asked How much longer the wait. Once we were seated the food and service was very good. Given the cost of the meal (High), it would have been appropriate for them to offer us a free drink or something of that nature in order to apologize for the long wait. Very good food, poorly managed. Doubt it will survive another year
