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.

Celebrating Mother’s Day a day late due to work. Our favorite restaurant by far! This time, and for the first time, we brought our kids to join us at a “fancy” dinner. They loved it! Maybe would’ve liked if they had pasta and meatballs or chicken fingers LOL—but their menu at TG had plenty that they would be able to create a meal. The fried chicken proved to be the winner. Dessert too! Can’t wIt to come back again!

I took my mother there for Mother’s Day and she really loved it. I definitely liked it and I’m such a foodie. One of my top restaurants in the city.

What an amazing night. My husband and I were celebrating our 12 year wedding anniversary and told them that in advance. We got engaged in Philly so it always holds a special place in our heart. They pulled out all the stops, giving us some complimentary items and ending with a champagne toast. We sat outside which was so romantic with the garden and lights as the backdrop. They made sure we had a heater which was nice because it was a little chilly and breezy that evening even though it was May. Our waitress was so attentive and took great care of us. People back here in Jersey keep asking where we went from the photos. They will def get a return customer from me and some new ones! Thank you for everything, Team Talula!

I went to here for the first time not knowing what to expect. It exceeded any expectations; from the hostess, to the wait staff, from our exceptional drinks, through the appetizers, main brunch, and the spectacular deserts! I would recommend this place for any special occasion, and from what I can tell from the gardens, a romantic date! We were so impressed with their brunch, that we have already made reservations for a romantic dinner.

Everything was lovely. But when we finished our meal, Open Table wrote me that our reservation had been cancelled. Double checked that I had chicken in properly, etc. Email said check with restaurant . Talulas said check with Open Table. Nad no sense.

Always good but a little less friendly in the pandemic, which can be understood. We’d mentioned it was my dad’s birthday but it didn’t really come up after that. Not a big deal but just not as memorable as other experiences I’ve had at Talulah’s

Such an amazing restaurant. The idea and concept of it with the garden is adorable. We ended up in a room with a bar which wasn’t my favorite but nonetheless it’s a beautiful restaurant. The staff were friendly and sweet. The food was to die for, we loved every dish we ordered, including the complimentary items. We were celebrating our anniversary and they wish us a happy anniversary with one of the best little desserts I’ve ever had. I’ve already recommended the restaurant to friends, family, and followers. We will most certainly be returning to this establishment!

A great brunch on a beautiful day, Sunday, May 2. We ate in the plant-filled, outdoor area on the side of the restaurant. The ambiance and the soft breezes were perfect antidotes for pandemic boredom. The food was excellent. Our server was professional and friendly. We enjoyed the time at Talula’s very much. A five-star experience.

Food was good. But wasn’t that great for the price. We were disappointed in the service. Our waitress delivered our appetizer and didn’t come back to check on us until we were almost finished our dinner. The manager did get us drinks and was apologetic and understanding when we told him about our experience.

My best friend and i come here specifically for the cheese board. It’s our favorite in the city, and their food is always amazing, but the service is definitely lacking from previous experiences. I imagine they lost a lot of servers due to the pandemic so hopefully next time it isn’t a problem.
