I cannot believe how much I love coming here. We are very part-time Center City residents, but Talula's Garden is always on my list because we can easily walk there and back. But - the bar, the food, the cheese. I dream of my daughter's...More

For the most part a great dinner. The fried oysters were fantastic as well as the ravioli and chicken. The smoked pork belly was not something I would recommend, the plating of the dish looked like a disaster and the port belly reminded me more...More

Four of us had a pre show Sunday dinner that was delicious and paced properly, leaving us well enough time for a 7:30 show, even with desert and coffee. We split one of their many cheese platters as an appetizer. It was delicious and well...More

I judge a restaurant by the bread they put down on the table. Once you try the garlic rolls they give you when you sit down, lets just say YOU ARE HOOKED! They far exceeded my expectations as well of the rest of the meal!

Best Pate I have had. The duck and carrots were tasty as well. I really enjoyed our meal. Great service, waiter didn't blink an eye when we said were going to share a bunch of plates. Cocktails are bit on the sweet side.

The cheese plates are exceptional. Less impressed with seating. Seemed to be lots of open tables, but even at 6:00, we were seated next to a wall far in the back, and when a noisy table of four was seated right on top of us,...More

Indoor and outdoor seating, both with great ambiance. Fresh oregano fettuccine was superb. Clam chowder was perfectly seasoned and not heavy. Will definitely go back here again.

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.
