Can you all offer recommendations for restaurants, close to the center city core (e.g., Old City, Rittenhouse, Art Museum, Passyunk, Wash West, Society Hill, Fitler) with nice outdoor seating. I love the garden seating at Talulah's Garden, but I'm not too excited with their August menu. Since it's going to be beautiful the next few days, I'd like to find a place with good food + outdoor seating. If you can think of places with sort of secluded seating (not just a table or two on the sidewalk of a busy street) - I'd really appreciate it!

There is the restaurant at the Fairmount Water Works. The views are tough to beat but the constant din from 76 can be annoying.

Poisitano isn't bad either, the Walnut side

If you want relaxed alternatives, try the P.O.P.E. (Pub on Passyunk East) or Los Caballitos on E. Passyunk. We also love Izumi for sushi, and you get the incredible atmosphere of sitting adjacent to the Singing Fountain. Just come to Passyunk and stroll until you find your perfect spot!

La Calaca Feliz and Jack's in Fairmount have cute outdoor seating. Meritage in GHo (or whatever that area's called now), Stratus Lounge by Independence Hall, Alla Spina.

That of course is my neighborhood. However the OP was looking for more seclusion then sidewalk eating. One thing I always worn visitors about when eating on the sidewalk is not leaving I-phones, tablets or note books on the tables. They will get snatched up real fast. Myself I eat prefer indoor eating, but enjoy my coffee, a nice cold beer or a cocktail outside with good conversation and watching the peeps walking by.
