    I had a wonderful time at Entree. We organized a business dinner for a visiting colleague there and were not disappointed. It is a small space and we went on a Sunday so it was relatively quiet but the ambiance was just right. It is BYOB and they feature two separate prefix menus ($50 and $40) or your choice of a la carte entrees, etc. The food was delicious. I had the prosciutto wrapped figs, lobster surf and turf, and butterscotch creme brulee. My steak was perfectly seasoned and cooked. And the deserts were across the board divine (butterscotch creme brulee, fried oreos, and nutella canollis). I would definitely go back, maybe for a date :)

    We chose Entree as the post-concert dining spot after as part of our classical music meetup night activities. As a group of 10 diners, they were prepared for our arrival. We were seated promptly and greeted by one of the friendliest, accommodating and pleasant wait staff ever. The menu doesn't overwhelm in terms of too many selections which I really liked. The prosciutto wrapped stuffed figs were a delicious appetizer. From mussels to salmon to salad to steak, everyone enjoyed their meal. Best of all, our wait person broken down the one check for us so each person was able to pay individually which is very helpful with a meetup post-concert meal. It's BYOB as well!

    It's BYOB so I understand that it can be loud but if your not guzzling wine, it's impossible to have a conversation. Food was extremely bland and underseasoned. Calamari was overcooked and eggplant risotto was one note. For the price, can not recommend.

    We had a great meal here early on a Saturday night before seeing a show. Service was friendly and efficient and the food was very good. We visited during restaurant week so they did not have their regular menu available but the prix fixe, 3 course meal for $35.00 was excellent. I need to return to try the scallops though. Best part is the BYOB which makes this a very affordable way to enjoy a great meal.

    I visited this restaurant for the first time during restaurant week. The food was delicious, and I was seated right away when I arrived. The service was attentive, and despite it being a small place, it did feel cozy. I would return to try other items on their menu since the menu for restaurant week is set. It also is a nice byo with no corking fee. I did not sit outside, but there is outside dining. I noticed that the servers were attentive to customers sitting outside. Overall, I enjoyed my dining experience, and thought the food was very good.

    We went in a group of 4 for restaurant week. I really enjoyed the the bacon wrapped dates, seared tuna and fried oreos. My husband had the steak and he wasn't thrilled but he's very particular about his steaks. I say go to a steak house for a steak. It was really cool that they are a BYOB but you can also bring liquors to be added to one of the virgin drinks. Which was awesome because one of the girls in our group was pregnant. I can't recall what she had but she really enjoyed it. I'd definitely go back but there's other places I want to try first.

    We went for Restaurant Week. The menu was nice and the food was good with adequate portions. The place is small and all hard surfaces, so once it filled up it was hard to hear across the table without raising my voice. It is a byo which kept the bill reasonable. The service was good at first but once some larger parties came in it was less attentive. We felt a bit rushed at the end as no coffee was offered with the desert.

    I was here with girlfriends for Restaurant Week, this was our first time. The selections all sounded great, we were all happy with our food. The only thing that was not 100% was my prosciutto wrapped figs, they seemed a little extra well done....okay burnt. The fact that no one from chef to waitress noticed this was a little concerning, but I didn't complain. I still ate them. Other than that, salmon, steak, and fried Oreos-- all yum! I'd try this place again. Liked that it's byob too :-)

    We had a party of 6 come to Entree BYOB for dinner during restaurant week. We were lucky enough to sit at the table in the front by the open window so we had a view of South Street and a nice breeze during dinner. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the special restaurant week menu. I was expecting smaller portions since it was restaurant week, but the entire group was pleasantly surprised at the size of each dish. I ordered the wedge salad to start - loved the candied walnuts and dressing. I ordered the salmon for my main course which was delicious. And to finish, I ordered the fried oreos which were unreal. Great atmosphere, food, and service which provided a positive overall experience. Will be returning and will recommend.

    Ultimately, I judge restaurants based on food and the food here was very good. I was not disappointed with any of the dishes I tried. I will say that the food could be considered a step below the top restaurants in Philadelphia, but is still really solid. My main complaint is that I made a reservation for 8:30 and was not seated until 8:50. This is an extreme delay for a reservation and once we were seated, we were put at a tiny table that was on a slanted sidewalk. Additionally, the waiter never asked us how our food was and my water was only refilled once.

    My Girlfriend and I wanted to enjoy Restaurant Weeks at a BYOB and we were not disappointed. We selected different appetizers, entrees and desserts and enjoyed every flavorful bite. We're both foodies and appreciate locally sourced ingredients and creative preparation. The service was very good. The noise level was very high, so we had to get close to talk. The great food trumped the noise. The fried Oreo was awesome. Easy parking at the kiosk.

    My sister and I just dined here for restaurant week. The menu offered many options per course. We started with the calamari and prosciutto wrapped dates which were both great. My NY strip was cooked perfectly and very flavorful. My sister enjoyed her seared tuna steak. To end, we had the fried oreos which truly lived up to their reputation!! Our server Rob was friendly, laid back but still attentive. The tables are tight so be prepared to apologize to other patrons to get back to the bathroom.

    We went to Entree BYOB for restaurant week this past Thursday. I regret that we had not checked them out prior to that point. The restaurant is a thin establishment that can probably seat up to 30 or so, the area is very well laid out and the ambience was great. Once the food started arriving, our opinion only increased. Everything we had was excellently crafted and presented. We will definitely be back again.

    Just went to Entree BYOB during restaurant week with my girlfriends and all 5 of us absolutely loved it! It's a BYOB which is all the more reason to check it out. The food was wonderful, I particularly enjoyed the salmon and fried Oreos for dessert...mmmm. We were seated in the front of the restaurant which was opened floor to ceiling to the street...such a cool atmosphere and located on a great street with lots of parking-we parked for free at a meter after 8:00. The service was wonderful and the chef came out afterwards and chatted with us--he was so nice! Entree is a great pick for any occasion; a quaint gem in this awesome city. Check it out, you won't be disappointed!

    We had 9PM reservations for a party of 6 but weren't seated until well after 9:30 after we checked in a few different times. The restaurant was very hot and they were low on ice so the water was warm. Our waitress was nice and the food was good but clearly, they didn't have their act together and couldn't handle the volume/large groups that they were taking reservations for.

    this spot has some of the best food in all of grad hospital, period. couple that with a chef who can accommodate allergies (see: gluten free fried calamari that is reason enough to come diner) and a truly affordable prix fixe menu with more food than most can handle, and entree should be on your regular rotation. particularly, the steak here is unequivocally better than several of the higher priced steak houses in the city, for half the price. bring your favorite bottle of red wine and enjoy.

    We had a visiting couple from Detroit whom we were eager to show the vibrant restaurant scene in our neighborhood. The dinner was very successful. The server was attentive and professional. The food was attractive and delicious. The only caveat was that their sedge salad was overdressed. Our duck breast was cooked to perfection, and our mussels/clams dish had a scrumptious sauce. All in all it was a very successful visit.

    I was really impressed with Entree BYOB. I was with a group of 7 people, 2 bottles of wine, and a bottle of champagne. They had our table ready upon our entrance and we were seated immediately. They quickly brought wine glasses and chilled the champagne. The waiter was attentive, entertaining, and helpful to all of our requests. I ordered the seared tuna with clams, mussels, and eggplant rossoto in a red sauce...so yummy. While I thought the tuna was not the best suited fish to accompany the dish, it was still phenomenal (a white fish would be better in my opinion). People had the option of price fix or individual dishes...their menu and options were very accommodating to the diversity of palates and preferences.

    This is a good neighborhood restaurant. Very good location. Very good service. Very good menu concept and structure (2 different prix fixe options plus regular menu with enough variety). However, the food is shy of great in comparison to other local restaurants with a similar vibe and target clientele. The fried Oreo dessert however is a deliciously odd guilty pleasure that I'm sure was prepared way better than what you'd find at a carnival. Overall a very good experience worth trying again to monitor and compare over time (both the restaurant and the fried Oreos).

    We stopped in on a Sunday in July. Our waitress was great and attentive (there was also a 20 person birthday celebration). I asked for her reccomendation and she was on point. I had the scallop dish with corn hash and a raspberry coulis. My tastebuds were singing! My companion had the strip steak and it was also prepared well. I indulged in the fried oreos even though I was more than full from my entree. We did the Prix Fixe which was a pretty good deal ($40 or $50). The appetizer figs were a lovely choice for a starter. I would definitely eat here again.
