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.

They moved our reservation to the patio when we asked if they had extra tables outside! Delicious brunch! 10/10

the food was excellent
the only issue was the temp inside
AC was blasting over our heads ( temp outside was in the 70s) and there was nothing that could be done about adjusting temp
we were offered to move once seats became available and we eventually moved outside to thaw
make sure u dress warm if u are having food indoors in the summer
( i was wearing t shirt only)
otherwise a phenomenal restaurant
best in philly

Cocktails were on point. We ordered 2 apps, 2 entrees, a side, and a dessert. Out of all of the courses, only 1 was subpar and our server, Elijah, was excellent. Definitely recommend.

We had a great girl’s night dinner here - started with the cheese board, tuna and watermelon Crudo, and a bottle of wine. The sélection and presentation was very well done, and the service was timely. The wait staff was very attentive for refilling water and checking in, and the outdoor ambience was pleasant and ethereal. Will definitely be back!

My husband, son, and I went to Talula's Garden for a lovely birthday dinner. Everything was stellar: cocktails, appetizers, entrees, and deserts. Our waitperson, Matt was professional, courteous, and provided excellent direction on menu nuances. The ambiance was chic & comfortable. We ate indoors but eh outdoor area was absolutely charming. I will happily return for another meal!

Talula's garden was wonderful. Took my daughter and a friend and we all enjoyed different fish/seafood entrees, all being delicious. The peach and burrata was seasonal, refreshing and delicious as well.
Looking forward to returning soon.

We have been fortunate enough to go to Talula's Garden a few times, and have loved it every time. The food is consistently great, the servers are knowledgeable and friendly, and the atmosphere is nice as well. It is a bonus that you can usually find affordable street parking nearby. We loved everything we had, but highly recommend the cheese boards, salmon, and scallop and shrimp dish!

Good meal, with shout outs for the peach and burrata starter and blueberry, peach desert. Cab sav wine a little pricey and the nearly absent green olive and marcona almond on the fish main course were minor disappointments. Service was good.

I had never been to this restaurant and was anxious to try it. This was a special occasion for my daughter and she picked it. We were worried about rain since we had 6 people for a table outside. Talula’s has its outside tables both street side and an alley next to 210 West Washington. It did not rain and we a great time. I had the scallops and my wife had the Bronzino. All meals were excellent and service matched.
