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.

    My husband and I introduced our friends to Talula’s Garden on Sunday. Their menu features so many delicious choices. Angela, our server was warm and welcoming and efficient. The restaurant is now one of our friends favorites for brunch! Loved it!

    Talula's Garden is one our top 3 favourite restaurants in Philly. At yesterday's visit, service was superb and the food was excellent. The mushroom soup was so different and better than any I've tasted before. The lamb bolognese was delish. The garden seating, provided for years before COVID-19 hit, was also beautiful, and our preferred seating choice. prices are not low, but commensurate with the level of quality of food, service, and ambience.

    The food was great, Tyler, the waiter was very attentive but I think the kitchen misplaced our order. It took a long time and to make up for it, the brought out little “trial bites” and ultimately comped us our appetizer. Overall, very good and I would return.

    The food wasn’t just for consumption it was a total experience. Each bite was flavorful, fresh and perfectly balanced. Knowing that the menu changes makes it creative and interesting. The drinks were also as fun as the menu. Leave room for dessert because it doesn’t end until you have had dessert! This is a must and promise not to disappoint.

    Exception food and service, however, the drinks were substantially “watered-down” and were ailing to juice.

    A beautiful outdoor space but the service was quite slow, perhaps as a sign of the labor shortage. And the quality of the food has declined (I've eaten here several times pre-pandemic) but the cost has increased. Won't be going back.

    After being asked to order apps/entrees up front, and assured we would not be rushed, entrees came out as we were barely into the appetizer. After indicating we weren't close to ready, the same entrees were brought out 10-15 min later and barely warm. After sending those back, the entrees were excellent the second time around, but not a great experience. No offer of a comped glass of wine or anything.

    Always an incredible experience at Tulula’s Garden. Brought a few of my friends for their first time and one of them from Florida. Stated he would move pack to this area to eat at Here everyday. The staff is 15/10! Steven Starr should be very proud of this restaurant and it’s team!
