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.

Misrepresented outdoor dining. there is no outdoor dining it is rather eating in a little room . Rather like a dangerous incubator which facilitates the spread of Covid. Will not return

The food was exquisite, so delicious. Excellent, professional, friendly staff. Top notch drinks. We had a wonderful evening, can’t wait to come back.
And of course the main attraction we couldn’t help ourselves; one of the waitstaff seriously looked like Stanley Tucci. ❤️

Our party of 4 ate outside in the cozy pandemic structure. Felt safe, but not too closed in.
Our server was excellent: friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and personable.
The food, as always, was simply incredible. From the delicious cheese board and seasonal ramp flatbread appetizers to the perfect entrees to scrumptious bread pudding dessert, a truly memorable meal.
Always our favorite restaurant!

Soo very disappointed. Waiter repeatedly disappeared.
Waited 30 minutes for coffee. Eggs were inedible as they were very salty and had to send them back. I do not recommend or suggest Talulas for a special brunch.

It was a great experience. Reserved a table via open table and has no issues at the restaurant. The main course was a recommendation from the waitress and it just didn’t live up to the hype or the 5 star rating with over 9000 respondents. The drinks and dessert was 5 star. The rest, 3 at best.

Best experience I’ve had at a restaurant. Amazing service and such friendly staff. Everyone had a smile on their face and were more than happy to help. Was celebrating my 3 years and our waitress had a small dessert sent over for me and my boyfriend! On top of service, the food was delicious! Will definitely return.

Delicious meal! My wife and I both had fish (salmon and branzino), and each was prepared to perfection. The fresh baked cheddar-chive biscuits made a great side. Our server was outstanding.

Nice and good food. No truly open area in the garden. Everything is enclosed, which was a disappointment, but probably to keep business up with covid. A little overpriced. Great location in the city.

The starter of French brioche sticks was amazing!!! My husband had the local brunch and loved it. I had the chicken and waffle. It was ok. One piece of chicken would of been enough for both waffles but it was more savory than sweet. I wanted a balance between savory and sweet. Overall the food was great.

Very pretty restaurant. Ambience was lovely. And food was tasty but very overpriced. Nutella croissants were delish. My avocado toast was tasty but very small portion (coming from someone who likes Torah’s mallet portions). Husband’s “local brunch” was ok. His cheddar chive biscuit was delish. Over all the pastries were the best part of our meal. I wish there were more vegan options.
