Talula's Garden did a great job with temperature checks and providing their staff with protective gear. However, one thing I think restaurant patrons would appreciate is being asked their preference of indoor vs. outdoor dining. We were inside, and while it was overall fine, we would have preferred to be outdoors. Additionally, we were seated right next to the restroom which was a high traffic area and there were other restaurant patrons who went to the restroom without wearing a mask. While we have these concerns, we love Talula's Garden, it is one of our favorite restaurants and will continue to come back.
It was a lovely evening! The staff was outstanding! We felt safe with all the protocols they had in place .
When it starts off bad, it’s hard to enjoy the rest of the visit. Hostess was rude when we specified we wanted a outside table—especially during a pandemic. We were probably the 20th party that day—that didn’t want to sit inside but there’s no reason for attitude. The service was not as attentive as past experiences. The menu was mediocre and so was my meal.
While I’ve had great experiences at Talula’s I found their hospitality at my most recent visit wanting. In the course of the pandemic we have defaulted to outdoor seating. Other restaurants on OpenTable have the option if they have indoor. Talula’s did not. So it was my assumption that outdoor was only available. Turns out not the case. I asked about it and even though I had a reservation, our hostess said you can wait if you want. Not, “Let me see what’s available, etc”. Very off putting and soured the experience. I overheard another hostess treat their patron much differently and went out of their way to find seating. Either way, that ruined the experience.
Delicious brunch in the beautiful garden!
Great experience. Delicious food that accommodated my dietary restrictions.
I don't get the hype. The food was good but not incredible. It's entirely possible we dined on an "off night", but if that's the case then it's worth noting that this is a risk everyone should factor in. The starters were good, but a little over seasoned, but the entrées were *way* over seasoned and drowning in sauce. Pretty lackluster honestly, saved only by the ambiance and service which were both outstanding.
Food was amazing!! We went back for brunch the next day. Can’t wait to get back!
Food was outstanding. Service was suspect. She never stopped by after taking our order. Had to ask other people for more water, drinks and dessert menu. But we would go back, just ask for a different server.
Our food and drinks were delicious. Loved sitting in the garden area.
The food was delicious and the location is beautiful! My husband and I will be back❤️
Beautiful brunch! It was lovely with all the candles going so early in the day! It’s all in the details and they did not disappoint. Food was deli delicious and service was just perfect- thank you
Aesthetically Talulahs garden is beautiful. The wine and cheese great. Service, my waiter came around a total of 3 times I wanted a coke so badly she was no where to be found took forever too ask how my food was which was the fried chicken and it was unbearably salty until it was time for the check it was the most I saw her mind you it wasn’t busy. Very dissatisfied.
Fresh delicious food, friendly staff, great ambiance, want to eat here everyday
It was our first time here and the food was fabulous. We were able to sit outside and we loved everything about our dining experience.
We enjoyed a beautiful dinner outside. The menu had great choices and the service was great. Will be going back!
Excellent service and food. Very Clean and social distancing was occurring
We preferred outdoor seating but assumed it would be in the beautiful garden area. We did have a reservation. Instead we were placed on the sidewalk. Food and drinks were amazing, however, it was disappointing to be seated where we were. We asked to change to inside if there was nothing else available, even though it seemed there were outdoor tables...Even though it wasn't what we were expecting, the food and drinks were amazing as usual. The fig appetizer and short rib entree were incredible.
We consider ourselves blessed to be able to dine here during a last minute trip to Philadelphia from New York City. A friend recommended it and we could not get in for dinner, so we chose the next best thing: BRUNCH! We were greeted with smiles (masks and shields included) and immediately escorted to our table outside. Service was prompt, knowledgeable and attentive. The Maryland Crab addition was a table favorite. We started with the candied bacon (Hog Candy). They give a new meaning to having "pigs fly." -the wind picked up when the server brought our dish to the table. It was a good laugh and a great memory. Bloody Mary was delicious - I love a good pickled green bean. Well paced food delivery. The Smashed Potatoes were out of this world. We didn't stay for dessert, but we will be sure to return during our next trip.
Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Fresh and delicious. The restaurant was perfectly socially distanced.
Great brunch. I don't like brunch in general. Actually, I am an anti-brunchite. I hate waiting in line for eggs with a bunch of hipsters. Talulas has a really good brunch, however. Excellent service, took and honored reservation with only a short wait. Maybe brunch isn't so bad.
Great brunch. Lovely safe social distance but still charming.
The chicken and waffles were crazy good and the restaurant has the most beautiful ambiance in the city
Took my parents to brunch. Food was fantastic and our server was very attentive. We sat on the patio because we’re not comfortable yet with indoor dining, however the staff had all requisite PPE and were very accommodating.
Even with all the COVID precautions, our evening was wonderful! Hats off to all the staff!
The food was amazing and the outdoor seating area was gorgeous!
We felt safe the entire time. The staff all took appropriate precautions.
Delicious food and great service in a beautiful garden—need I say more?
Talula's is one of my favorite spots in Philly! Excellent all around!

Fabulous food and great outdoor set up. We were very comfortable and service was extraordinary. Love this place.
I had a risotto and it was very salty
Great food and service. Outside seating was very comfortable.
It was amazing Top 2 spots for us now! Elijah did a great job and i can’t wait to go again
This was an amazing date/birthday restaurant, the scene and vibe was relaxed and it offered enough space in between ordering food to talk. The manager was highly professional and welcoming. I definitely will be coming back to this location. I would recommend making reservations because although it’s usually quiet it’s fairly packed.
Food and atmosphere was great! Nice was the enjoy my husband’s birthday
