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 have done a great job with outdoor dinning. It has central heating

I went here for my birthday with my boyfriend and absolutely loved it. The service was amazing and the food came so fast I think we only waited 5 minutes. They gave us the dessert for free and a small dessert for my birthday! They put the dessert on the house because we had to wait a little for it but it wasn’t anything ridiculous at all, maybe 10 minutes; I was genuinely surprised that they put the dessert on the house! Everything on menu sounded so good and unique. I will definitely be coming back!

We love Talula's! It's a "go to" in Philadelphia for great ambiance, delicious food and friendly, professional service. We dined in the sidewalk "cabins" on a 39 degree evening, and were warm and cozy. Well done, once again, Talula's!

Amazing food! Best meal all around that I’ve had in well over a year. Best service I’ve had in years! Everything came out so quick and was just a fantastic experience! Beautiful setting . Stephen Starr always has the most organized restaurants with the most customer friendly staff. It’s a consistent theme among his restaurants even during Covid. I felt safe and comfortable.

Outdoor seating was covered and cozy, but with good airflow. Appetizers were delicious, short ribs were just a little tough.

The food is soo delicious. I'll be dreaming of that curry apply and squash soup for days to come. Heads up -- they do have a 1.5 hour limit for reservations. Veryy warm outdoor accommodations.

What strikes me most about Talulah’s Garden is the service...from the call made to book our reservation (thanks Will) to our check in by their professional team and the caring service by their waiters (thank you Krista)...it was the highlight of our experience at this beautiful restaurant...and the dishes were great!
Look forward to our next time there!
Thank you,

Service was good, the outdoor heated dining was too cold to take off our jackets but warm enough, and overall the food was good just wasn’t anything special. Maybe it’s better for lunch?

The food was excellent as usual; however it’s was quite a bit cold. I understand restaurants have jumped through hoops to accommodate the crazy rules but this is the first spot I’ve been where I did feel cold while eating.

Food is always great. They let us make a 2pm reservation, but 15 minutes after we arrived we were told the kitchen is closing soon and we needed to place our orders right away. Opportunity to adjust their books to avoid awkwardness.

Really great experience! We have been pre-Covid and had a lovely time. It was nice to go during this crazy time to support the restaurant. They did a great job with their dividers and covered seating. We went on a rainy day and were worried we would not be able to stay and eat but we were wrong! They are ready and set for all weather conditions, while keeping everyone safe. Great experience, great food, recommend pre-Covid and would still recommend now.

Food was amazing and the heated tents have great structure. We felt very cold though as there weren’t enough portable heaters by our table. Otherwise I’d have rated 5 stars.

Outdoor dining on a 34 degree night in an outdoor, but sort of indoor, but really outdoor covered section in the garden with an industrial heater directly on us. Save for the occasional strong breeze, the temperature was manageable. From the moment we arrived the service was terrific. The well balanced menu offers something for everyone. They are able to elevate seemingly simple dishes to levels that are hard to comprehend. We loved our veg/pescatarian meal of tuno crudo, cheddar chive biscuits, rosemary scented tagliatelle with mushrooms, and butternut squash soup. This was our favorite outdoor dining experience of the year!

Food was reaLLy reaLLy good.
i do not think the waitress appreciated us ordering only one side & one entree but the entree was $58
and we ordered an $85 bottle of wine.
They were stricter about ordering food while drinking than other city restaurants but were quick to accommodate our request for coffee and baileys AS dessert instead of “accompanying” dessert.
Outdoor dining was WARM & cozy on a freezing night.

We will be back for that amazing (albeit very expensive) steak.
