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.

    First timers here for brunch and it was sooo good!! Eggs Benedict were the best I’ve ever had. Perfectly cooked eggs! The artichokes were a great addition. And the hash browns… best I’ve ever had as well! The cinnamon bun scones were a great way to start the meal along with the froze! Thanks for a really great experience! We will be back for sure!

    Talulah's continued to please us, this was our third time there. Everything was delicious from the drinks (my Old Fashion was superb) to the soup and salads (the mushroom soup is the best I've ever had) to the main courses and the chocolate - coffee ice cream dessert. The waitstaff was attentive without hovering. There was a short wait for our table, but other than that a perfect evening. I appreciate the outdoor setting as part of our COVID protocol.

    Ambience in Talula's Garden was very pleasant as well as the service. The food was amazing and thought it was a good value. Drinks were also very tasty but a bit overpriced for what they were.

    Entree came out right on top of the appetizer Don’t know what to do if that happens accept you tell you to pace better and ask your servers to feed back to the kitchen how the food is coming out. Dining does not mean rushing! Especially on a sun night. No reason for this. We love Talulas and will always be back.

    We always like to visit TG when in town. We arrived 1 hour earlier than our reservation and they kindly accommodated us. Overall creative and fresh cuisine, great service and warm ambiance! We enjoyed special pork fritters with blackberry sauce, tuna crudo with sunflower/sesame crumble, shrimp/scallop risotto, salmon with succotash, chocolate mousse bar with salty pretzel and coffee ice cream. We also discovered a lovely new Albariño that paired perfectly with our meal!

    Love this place and have been many times, its definitely a favorite. But our most recent visit found most aspects off. The food was uneven- one dish was (as expected) spectacular, one was not great. And service timing was truly lagging.

    Quite possibly one of the BEST meals I have EVER eaten in my life. The balance btwn savory and sweet was a perfectly walked tight-wire performance! Compliments to this chef!! The roasted Beets were perfectly balanced to bring out the bright acidity of them; topped with the candied walnuts, fresh whipped ricotta and the orange rind. Absolutely brilliant. The Chicken and Gnocchi is a dish you literally can not stop eating because each bite is better then the next! If you have not had the pleasure of the experience called Talula’s Garden…don’t wait for a particularly special day… just go! You will not regret it!!

    The outside, non streetery dining was very nice. A very quaint and inviting patio setting. The food was delicious! A little on the pricey side. The bill was $130 ( plus tip) for 2 drinks, 2 entrees, 1 coffee and 1 dessert. Overall, I would go there again.

    Excellent location and restaurant for a special occasion. While a little pricey, you get what you pay for. We chose to sit outdoors in the garden, which is lovely, as well as covered for the sprinkles that came through. The staff is wonderfully informative and attentive. Everyone truly seems to enjoy working there. The cheese board was wonderful, we shared two appetizers and had four different entrees, plus two sharing desserts. The food is all interesting mixes of textures and flavors, and everything was presented perfectly and tasted wonderful. We have absolutely nothing negative to say.

    The food was delicious and the outdoor seating setup was very nice. I know other restaurants do this too but we had to order our appetizers and entrées together which made us feel rushed into placing our full orders at once. Food prices are a little high for the portion sizes, but still delicious.
