A word from Friday Saturday Sunday
"Best tiny romantic restaurant" - Philadelphia Magazine “It’s a Rittenhouse Square classic. With its romantic dining room and cool upstairs tank bar, it’s one of the most vibrant spots with a finely rendered menu. Great wine list and only a $10 markup on each bottle.” –Craig LaBan, Philadelphia Inquirer

    We were there on a COLD Tuesday evening and were the only ones in the restaurant. Not usually a good sign but it was Tuesday and it was COLD! I had been there about a year ago and was not impressed. This time the food was very good . I had the Caesar salad and the mussels. Mussels were yummy with delicious bread for dipping. all my friends enjoyed their meals. Service was very slow which was odd because no one else was there! There also seemed to be almost no heat in the restaurant so we had to use our coats for warmth. I would consider returning.

    This is an old favorite that we just hadn't been back to in a while. It continues to shine. The food is very good and the staff are attentive and friendly without being intrusive. The tables are small but it means you can sit close and talk. My salmon with orzo was delicious and cooked just the way I requested.

    I went here on a Saturday night with my husband for our anniversary. Service was very strange: there was one waiter who was very aloof in charge of drinks, and another waiter we didn't see far about 45 minutes, but who turned out to be very warm, who took our food order. We ordered the mushroom appetizer, which was delicious. My hubby ordered the duck and I ordered the blackfish wrapped in romaine, and both were meh. From reviews online I was expecting a funky romantic place, but once there all the black lights made it feel a little cheesy. Might be better for fdinner with friends.

    Our third visit here, and it is perfect. My partner had the lamb shanks special, I had the grilled lamb and both were fork tender and the best lamb we've ever had. Ambience upstairs at the Tank Bar and dining area is active with good background music, but quiet enough to hold a conversation. Service friendly and prompt. Highly recommend. We will be back!

    My friend had the special grilled red snapper and liked it very much. I had the butternut squash ravioli which I have had there many times before. The ravioli was good but the sauce was too creamy, not like the original recipe. The restaurant has changed other recipes - the duck is not the same either. We shared key lime pie which was very limey but a bit to fluffy. I will still go there because it's good food but I am disappointed not to be able to enjoy my old favorites. The service was very good and it's a cozy place, no loud music.

    I have lost count how many times over the years that I have eaten here (virtually since they opened 40 years or so ago)--and I have never been disappointed. My only issue is that eating downstairs isn't as cozy as eating upstairs, and this last time we were downstairs because of a private party upstairs. But as always the food was great, the drinks are affordable and strong, the wine list reasonably priced--I will go again and again and again.

    Environment is super weird. Clothe ceilings, Christmas lights, weird colors, but I really enjoyed it. It was something different. The food is a bit pricey for what you get as far as portion sizes go, but tasted delicious. Would try it again and maybe sit at the bar or something.

    All 6 of us enjoyed our dinner, no one complained but no one raved about anything. Service was just okay. I couldn't read the specials (green text on black board) and when I asked the waiter about them, he was a bit taken back having to tell me about them. The dessert that 2 people ordered (and was written on the special board) was not available at 8pm. Prices were reasonable.

    Cozy, warm feeling, noise levels not too loud, food was very good (salmon for one of us, duck for the other), service was very pleasant, zipped the wine right out to us, bit leisurely on everything else. Pumpkin cheesecake was also good for dessert. Salads were good if a bit overpriced. Would definitely come back.

    Been going to Fri. Sat. Sun. for 20+ years and still one of our favorites places to dine. Food and drinks wonderful. Always fun to have a cocktail at the Tank Bar upstairs before dinner. Love the unique atmosphere of this restaurant. Only downside is parking. But that's Philly! Would definitely recommend.

    Celebrated our anniversary with dinner at this little gem...had a drink at the bar upstairs while waiting for our table, and chatted with the friendly bartender. We were seated at a cozy quiet corner booth and had a fantastic meal...great salads, the pork tenderloin and ravioli...both delicious! We were visiting from CT but would return to this place on our next visit to Philly!

    This was our first time to the restaurant, and all of the waitstaff was running around chaotically so perhaps they were short handed. It took us ~10 min to get water and a menu, and the ribeye I ordered medium-rare off the specials board came out medium-well/well done. My wife's fish was fine but nothing to write home about, although the cheese plate was very good and well thought out. Seemed like a lot of people in the restaurant were regulars, so perhaps they know something I don't?

    We had another delightful dinner at FSS! The staff is so warm and welcoming. The crab cakes were amazingly light, with plenty of crab. The grilled polenta triangles were a terrific complement. As usual, the ribeye steak of the day was cooked to perfection. We enjoyed a great bottle of pinot noir; we don't worry about white/red pairings, just what we enjoy! :-) The desserts were as delicious as ever: autumn pear tart and key lime pie. We love the low key, cozy vibe here and will be returning soon!

The service is a great blend of team work and we both enjoyed our meals. PS. Don't forget to check the board for specials of the night

    We always have a pre-theatre meal here to start off the season, and we frequently add a holiday season visit here as well - it's a lovely, unpretentious special place. Many of our out-of-town guests get to have their first Philadelphia restaurant experience at FSS - we know they find it memorable!

    The restaurant is small, intimate and serves the best food I've eaten in almost forever. The wine was very fine and the service very attentive. And generally friendly. The only tiny issue I had was that, since we were catching up with a friend we hadn't seen in a year, it took us longer than usual, I guess, to order. Eventually, our server told us that our table was spoken for by an 8:00 PM reservation (it was around 6:30). Although she apologized, the experience was soured for me a bit because I felt rushed afterwards.

    I had received many recommendations to try Friday Saturday Sunday, so I was very excited to try. Unfortunately, it fell short of my expectations, starting with the service (never asked half the table for drink orders), out of the first two wine bottles we chose and waited an exceptionally long time to take our dinner order (and only when prompted). Further more, the lamb entree was over cooked, spinach tasted old and the cous cous cake was sooo dry. Other entrees were ok (two fish and the filet) - no one left wanting to return.

    I have been eating here since FSS opened--I used to live almost next door. Other places come and go; there is a reason FSS is still going strong. It is consistently excellent in every way. It doesn't play to trends or fads. Many of the staff are long-time employees. They all seem to enjoy what they are doing, and the customers know this. I hadn't been in a while because I had been out of the country on business, and I took a retiring co-worker as a farewell dinner--he loved the place to. And I discovered I had really missed the place--I eat at many other area restaurants, but I have a genuine affection for FSS. OpenTable readers should go to FSS, and go often, to what, I think, is Philadelphia's best restaurant.

    I have been enjoying this fabulous gem since it's founding 40 years ago. Weaver has continued to maintain the variety and uniqueness of his place through decades of Philadelphia's "restaurant renaissance". Mt wife and I enjoyed our wedding brunch there almost 32 years ago, and we introduced our daughter to this neighborhood gem last weekend while she was visiting us from that "other" restaurant city, San Francisco. We travel from Chester County to enjoy Fri/Sat/Sun as often as we can.

    Sometimes you just want good food with no pretense. This is why my friends and I dined at FriSatSun last weekend. Parking in this area of town is horrendous, but tucked away in a tiny corner of Rittenhouse Square is this gem of a restaurant. My friends loved the friendly waitstaff, but it was difficult getting the attention of the person taking food orders. We all loved the meal and there was zero complaints, aside from the fact that many menu items were gone by the time we arrived. If you go, pick a less busy time period. The food really is yummy and we enjoyed our girls night out.

    I've walked past this restaurant so many times and have always thought it looked cute and cozy. Had dinner there for the first time on a Saturday night and inside it feels just as cute and cozy. Sat upstairs, it was very quiet. The people who worked there were very nice and friendly and seemed to be having a good time. The food was very good (I had the ravioli and my date had the ribeye) and we had a bread pudding for dessert which was delish. Would definitely recommend!

    The blue cheese salad was light and delicious, the salmon perfectly prepared, and the coconut cream pie was just as I remembered it--outstanding. FriSatSun's desserts are all fabulous. However, the roasted broccoli florets that accompanied the salmon fillet were almost burnt and tasted brackish. Also there were too few of them.
