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.

The starter of French brioche sticks was amazing!!! My husband had the local brunch and loved it. I had the chicken and waffle. It was ok. One piece of chicken would of been enough for both waffles but it was more savory than sweet. I wanted a balance between savory and sweet. Overall the food was great.

Very pretty restaurant. Ambience was lovely. And food was tasty but very overpriced. Nutella croissants were delish. My avocado toast was tasty but very small portion (coming from someone who likes Torah’s mallet portions). Husband’s “local brunch” was ok. His cheddar chive biscuit was delish. Over all the pastries were the best part of our meal. I wish there were more vegan options.

Good food and service. Very, very loud in the courtyard, which makes you want to get out of there pronto and rush through your meal. Also, Steven Starr restaurants must not be familiar with the research that temperature checks are a colossal waste and essentially COVID theater. I find it intrusive and stupid.

Our dining experience at Talula’s Garden was great. The cheddar chive biscuits were delightful and short rib was incredibly tender. The only thing I complained about was the dirty cutlery. Everything else was great,

The staff at Talula's was fantastic, they we're knowledgeable and handled other customers difficulties with ease not far from our table. Everyone was kind and the food was amazing. A bit over priced but im cheap and the value was absolutely there.
It was our anniversary and they Brought us a cute little dessert to make it special.

What a great experience! First and foremost, the service from Christina was excellent! She truly made us feel welcomed, comfortable and cared for as a costumer! The food was incredible, everything from the cocktails to the “sweet treat” that was gifted to us as a little thank you for coming. Location is beautiful as well. The topper on the cake was for the upscale food and experience the price was unbelievably fair! I was expecting it to be about $100 more than it was! I CANNOT wait to go back!

Still great. Happy to say that Talula's has always been a favorite for impeccably prepared food and service. Also, can bring wine for corkage fee. Outstanding cheese plates. My only qualm with the menu is that several of the healthier options all have olives (2 of 3 fish dishes, veggie dish and one salad), so if you are trying to eat healthy-ish, you have to enjoy olives. That being said, I'm sure they would have done something with no olives if I had asked as their service is so great.

This was my second time dining at Talula’s. Everything was great flavor wise as I remembered. My only issue was that the fruit bowl I order the last time I went was a bigger portion size than the one I had this time. Other than that flavors were all on point, service was great & I would come back again!

Talalus’s Garden has been my new go-to brunch eatery. It's an enjoyable atmosphere that reminds you of an intimate garden setting in upstate New York. The food is excellent! The food ingredients are high quality which you quickly notice after the first bite. You must dine there.

We came for Easter brunch. We love this restaurant! Service was great, food Delish. Ambiance so pretty. Only complaint was my husband’s chicken in his chicken and waffles dish was dry and over cooked. He didn’t want to mention it so it’s our fault for not mentioning anything. We will be back again and highly recommend!

And, oh, the food!! Unbelievably delicious!! Biscuits, tuna, pappardelle & short rib. ALL winners!! Thank you so so so much for making our evening so special.

Service and food were great. However, I'd like to see a ittle more thought into weaving healthy items into the dishes. The short rib and grits bowl is nice but doesn't contain a single vegetable that isn't a garnish. There isn't a side of greens--nor any vegetable-- available. Just because I'm having an indulgent brunch doesn't mean I wouldn't appreciate a handful of kale/chard/arugula and some carrots/peppers/crucifers thrown in (or at least the ability to order a side of them). More vegetarian options would be nice as well; I'd hesisitate to bring a vegetarian/vegan here--and I think we're only going to see more demand for that.

We were called to confirm our reservation and were told 1:45 for meal which I find to be a bit arrogant and unnecessary. It makes the patron feel rushed and limited. Server told us to not rush, but kept approaching us...I was reminded we had to rush. We were disappointed by the scallop entree-only 3 scallops. Short ribs, ravioli and salads were delicious. Overall pricey, but in general a good experience. Just don’t like being told rush don’t rush etc.
