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.

3rd time going to Talulas and each time has been better than the last. The outstanding food is only surpassed by the customer service and knowledge from the servers. Can't go wrong here. Top 5 restaurant in Philly hands down!

Talula's was wonderful - the food was excellent and the service was attentive and impeccable. My father is disabled and he accidently knocked over a wine glass, breaking it. Someone was there immediately to help clean up the mess and another server was sure to replace the drink, thoughtfully placing it in a glass that was harder to topple. They did all of this in a gracious manner that deflected any embarrassment my dad may have felt. This was just one of so many ways the servers went above and beyond. The meal was pricey, but every morsel was fantastic. The cheese plates in particular are awesome! I will definitely be going back again!

Lovely evening at TG: compact menu and tables a bit close together, but service assiduous and the food very good, original flavors and clearly close attention to sourcing--glad we found it!

Phenomenal. It's been years since I first tried this restaurant and I will not let that happen again. My husband and I dined here before a show at the Forrest Theater.

The team was friendly, attentive and gracious.
The ambiance is so thoughtful and cozy.
And the food! Was delicious.

Would definitely recommend!!

AS usual, Talula's delivered. Took my wife and stepdaughter for brunch. Service was decently attentive and friendly. The food was spot on. The only thing that is in any way negative, and I'm probably the only one who thinks this, is that the portion sizes are just a little too big. Certainly a good value, but I would have felt better had I not finished the whole thing. Otherwise, tremendous.

Food was good but expected better. For example, crab benedict has a crab essence but no crab.

We went for brunch and EVERY aspect was amazing and delicious! The decor, service, ambience but most of all the food! We had the crab Benedict with spinach over biscuits , the cheesy grits and cinnamon donuts.
