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.

Fourth time dining outdoors here in the last year. The food and service have been consistently outstanding. Always a reliable menu with plenty of variety. Only downside on this visit was that we were not seated in the private street pods (where we've been for about a dozen Starr restaurant meals since the fall). The indoor "outdoor" space (or vice versa) felt more like indoor dining with others in the same space and the air vents blowing. Next time, the street pods will be a prerequisite. Starr has done one of the best jobs in the city navigating things. We've rotated among a bunch of his spots, especially since the weather turned.

Excellent food and service! Branzino was the best I have ever had, even at Talula’s. Great social distancing measures and outdoor dining is well heated. I always love the little surprise bites- we got a dessert this time. Yum!!

This was one of our favorite outdoor dining experiences ever! The tables were each in their own compartment with beautiful views to Washington Sq Park, twinkle lights, and ample heating. The service was quick and professional and we really enjoyed every bite.

We had a great time! The outside patio was fabulous and even in the cold weather with the heated patio it was beautiful! I wish more places were setup like Talula’s with great food, great service, and a great location even during Covid times!

The atmosphere was great. Everything from the food to the service was excellent. The food was tasty and did not take a long time coming out. Food came out hot and in a timely manner. The outdoor seating was fun and relaxing

We ate outside in the makeshift enclosed heated space on a relatively chilly night. It was heated enough to keep us from freezing but still not entirely comfortable. We were happy to be outside though - inside was too crowded. Menu was interesting and food quality was above average. Servers were very pleasant and helpful but forgot my wife's appetizer. Would give it another try.

Everything was great except I felt rushed. We sat and were shooed out the there in 65 minutes. Not the relaxed date night atmosphere I was hoping for.

My date and I both ordered the fried chicken entree and it was delicious. The gravy tastes good on the chicken and we even put a little on the collard greens. As an appetizer we had the Cheddar Chive biscuits and they were amazing. We loved the butter that came with them as well. Atmosphere was dim and romantic. Perfect date night

My boyfriend and I had a great experience at Talula’s Garden. Seated inside, the ambiance was romantic and relaxing. Our server was on point- friendly and informative. The food was outstanding! Be sure to get a side of the cornbread and bourbon butter. It’s insane. I will definitely go back the next time I visit.

Talula‘s has done a great job with outdoor seating. The only room for improvement will be to somehow add a bit more heat into the individualized seating areas that have been built other than that we really enjoyed the experience and I’ll be back as soon as the temperature warms up to above freezing at night.

My wife and I had an awesome time and a fantastic dinner and drinks at Talula’s Garden. We really liked the private outdoor stall seating and the service was top notch. The food was outstanding especially the fig and and goat cheese pizza we had as an appetizer. I also really enjoyed the Godfather Old Fashioned made with TG’s private barrel Dad’s Hat rye. We will definitely be back in the near future and wouldn’t absolutely recommend having a meal here.

So glad we finally got to eat here! The food was spectacular and the ambiance is worth the steep prices. The service was great but felt extremely rushed (we were finished eating 30 minutes after sitting down...) We were also forced to order dessert in order to enjoy a second cocktail. I understand the Philadelphia guidelines during COVID that you have to have food while enjoying alcohol, but we had already ordered 2 starters and 2 meals! I would have just ate my meal slower or kept my plate on the table had I known. Especially since the rest of the service is so rushed, you don't want to get up and leave after only being there for 30-45 minutes.

Took my girlfriend to Talula's Garden on 2/15/21 for a belated Valentine's Day dinner. We chose to make reservations for the indoor dining option. My girlfriend loved the atmosphere and food, which made me very happy. I loved the experience as well. She had the salmon and I had the seared scallops. I'm sure everything they offer on the menu is delicious.
