We had a lovely meal after a matinee performance at the Kimmel. The Pappardelle Pasta is delicious and you can have it as a main course or an appetizer. The short ribs melt in your mouth with incredible flavors (well seasoned). We also had the...More

I rarely write a negative review on the basis on one experience but I feel that I must in this case. It started when our server left us stranded with menus that didn't have all the pages that should have been included. We asked and...More

It is hard to give a restaurant a serious review for lunch the day after a thanksgiving dinner. All five of us ordered a cob salad. It was well prepared and satisfying but "not to die for". As far as the other things on the...More

Perhaps it was fated to be a disappointment dining out on thanksgiving. 7:30 reservation, the dining room was not full but a nice crowd. Regardless of better empty tables we were seated by the kitchen. Music system was overwhelmed by the clatter from the kitchen....More

We came before a Philadelphia Orchestra concert on a Saturday evening. Food was delicious. Our waiter was extremely helpful with recommendations. The restaurant was out of the wine I chose, but had a great substitution ready. Great location for getting out on time to the...More
