Ate here while attending a business meeting in Philadelphia. Tinto's was a very short walk from my meeting hotel, which was the Sofitel. Great food, great service, and an excellent wine list. After a long day of sitting through a business meeting in a hotel...More

Tinto is a Jose Garces gem! The chef's tasting menu helps make unregrettable decisions that will more than satisfy! The wine pairing is well curated and will not disappoint! I've been here several times, and can't recommend it more!

This location has a great little wine list and the appetizers really come together. Easy to share dishes with lots of flavor!

From the excellent service to the wine pairings, this was an evening to remember. The duck confit was my favorite, and the wagu beef my husband's. We'd be regulars here if we lived in Philly!

Stopped by Tinto to have happy hour with one of my girlfriends. Great selection of tapas and refreshing sangria were on deck. Heads up - like many restaurants in Philly with a happy hour special, you can only get the special if you're actually sitting...More
