    We had such a great time at dinner, and the food was exceptionally good. It was a perfect way to celebrate our 10th Anniversary!

    Food was great! I had the cod. This was my second time to the FLK and I think the portions should definitely be larger. We both left hungry. It would be nice to have had bread with the dinner. the nuts were good but with the small portions, you really need something more.

    Not knowing much about Pottstown I searched online for restaurants and came across the Funky Lil Kitchen. I hardly ever write reviews but felt this restaurant deserved it. The food, service, selections and ambiance were all A++. I would highly recommend this restaurant and hope to go back again in the future....

    I was looking forward to trying Funky Lil Kitchen after I read the reviews, but we were underwhelmed. The food was good, but it didn't wow us. The menu was quite limited (only 8 items TOTAL), and substitutions weren't allowed. Being gluten-free, that left me with very few choices. We declined dessert and went home and made some for ourselves. The service was adequate, and the atmosphere was quaint, but it is located in downtown Pottstown, which is not somewhere I would seek out. If you want a truly memorable dining experience in this area, I recommend trying Majolica in Phoenixville.

    Absolutely LOVED our dinner and evening at the FLK. The scallops were cooked perfectly and served over a zucchini waffle! I've never had anything like that and the tastes along with Ratatouille complimented each other perfect. We brought a chardonnay from a local vineyard, Blair and it accompanied quite nice. My girlfriend enjoyed the cantaloupe, refreshing soup and her gnocchi was covered with crab meat and a light/delicate sauce. Kudos to you all for creating a MUST try in Pottstown. See you again!

    When you walk in is this damp smell hits you in the face but the place looks clean and nicely appointed so we stayed. Then my wife who is always cold noticed how warm it was and we found out the AC is broke. There was only 3 couples total in the small restaurant and we were all sat next to each other so we could enjoying hearing each other conversation and feeling the heat even more. Upon reading the menu we see there in NO SUBSTITUTION and that kind of left us feeling unwelcome. Food quality was great but the selection and portion sizes are limited. I live in Philly so this is close to some restaurants we have there but I doubt it would make it on just great food alone. Check the menu online before you go and make sure the AC is fixed.

    I had dined at FLK several years ago while passing thru town and was impressed! I was again in FLC last week and FLC has improved with age! The food was great! The service attentive but not over bearing . The decor and atmosphere were very pleasing, pleasant and romantic. The menu is small but diverse; it is a BYOB so don't forget your wine as this food deserves a great bottle of wine. I liked the peanuts but ,as I have seen in other reviews, the chef really needs to provide some bread to allow one to get every delicious drop of the sauce on the Escargot( a must have if you like Escargot)! It is a very small restaurant so reservations are recommended. The menu changes often.A Great Night Out...... looking forward to a return visit.

    on the heat wave of the summer.. you had no air conditioning,...it was a special occasion for us.. who work all the time at night to take an evening off for a birthday celebration..a PHONE CALL telling us that the AC wasn't working would have been the CORRECT way to handle a reservation.. the waiter was not knowledgeable about what he was serving.. you only have EIGHT things on the menu... he should be able to answer simple questions and have intelligent suggestions.. bean salad, i ordered , was a dish served warm... my own stupid fault for assuming that it was going to be chilled as it was already 102 degrees in the building... lets just say.. we won't be back.. OR making suggestions to friends....

    If you are lucky enough to visit while a braised short rib is on the menu, you must try it. Fork tender, the knife is provided to help push the beef onto your fork, or maybe it's just for show, b/c you won't need it to cut the meat! Desserts are always something to save a little room for or to take home for a special treat the next day. We often eat way too much to have room. My latest favorite, Peanut butter ricotta layered with fresh fruit (this time it was Blackberries). Can you say HEAVEN? I can, I thought for sure that's where I had ended up when I drove onto King Street and landed in FLK! This is a MUST taste it to believe it. Don't be shy, try the wildest thing on the menu, you won't ever be disappointed.

    Michael Falcone is not only a chef, he is an artist! I can't say enough about the duck leg confit which came with a lavender and black pepper pancake. I don't know how he thought of it nor would I have requested it, but now I want it again and again. Love Funky!

    I am always in awe of Chef Michael Falcone's talent in the kitchen! Never since the restaurant opened have we ever been disappointed. Buttery escargot that melts in your mouth coupled with divine bacon and potatoes in an adorable crock. My choice of Braised duck with a delectable waffle was extraordinary. Savory and sweet combinations seem to be Michael's forte along with the unexpected and unique, balanced with farm fresh meats, produce and insanely delectable concoctions of sauces, purees, and seasonal fare. Don't be shy, try the wildest thing on the menu, you won't ever be disappointed.

    We dined at FLK several years ago with friends and decided to dine here on our anniversary. Started with sharing escargot - very nice flavor and sauce. Entrees were duck confit and pan seared scallops - both excellent; duck tender and moist; scallops cooked perfectly. Nice finish with a shared peanut butter ricotta. Byob - a romantic and budget friendly fine dining experience. Excellent and friendly wait staff. We won't wait as long before our next visit!

    We opted to eat 3 entrees, one as our appetizer.Pa seared sea scallops with roasted potatoes, peas, onions in lemon-thyme butter. The scallops were cooked perfectly, browned with a gentle yield when bitten, sauce light, delicious, let's the flavor of the scallop come through. Our entrees were braised veal shoulder au jus served with spring onion rice pudding, roasted carrots and pan roasted chicken breast served lemon orzo,squash,chard,tomato, olives, basil puree, both dishes were amazing. The chicken was succulent, juicy and flavorful. The veal was incredible, fork tender. The savory rice pudding was lovely and complimented the veal. Desserts were incredible as well. Honey,lavender,almond bread pudding & peanut butter ricotta.

    This was our first visit. FLK is funky indeed. The decor sets the tone. Be prepared to drink wine from juice glasses, or do as repeat visitors do and bring your own. We didn't mind this since we were drinking white- it brought back memories of neighborhood pubs in eastern Europe. The food and service were very good. One big request: bread instead of peanuts. Not the best way to begin. We were especially sad there wasn't bread when we received the escargot. They were PERFECT! But it was a darn shame that we didn't get to mop up every bit of the yummy sauce with some crusty bread. A bit limited menu, but what is offered is done in interesting combinations of quality food in a nice presentation. I would recommend to others.

    The rest. is small, tables & chairs comfortable. Strange...no bread but that is good for diet. Portions pretty small. Don't think anything on menu for vegetarians. Lots of shellfish. Menu small: 5 apps, 5 entrees, 3 desserts. Everything was perfectly cooked and enough to eat but if you are a large eater, it could be a problem. I sound negative but I am not. Just thought you should know. I would return in a shot.

    I like that the menu has creative options but not too many to make my head spin. I had a smoked salmon lemon waffle with capers, and if I remember correctly, diced onions, tomatoes - that was delish. For course two, I enjoyed a seared mahi mahi w/ a pineapple salsa. Both were tasty and the portion size was great to not overstuff. I would absolutely look forward to coming back when in town and trying some more interesting compilations! The decor is "funky," the staff, friendly, and I enjoyed being able to see into the kitchen where the chef was working.

    It's been quite some time since we've been to FLK but not for lack of quality. Living just east of Pottstown this BYOB is a great alternative to going into Philly! The wait staff is so friendly and accommodating. Each dish seemed so carefully prepared and they lean towards locally provided goods. The escargots were very tender and flavorful and the sauce was spoon worthy! Try the halibut & save room for dessert! As their Facebook page states, "There is no closing date" set yet. I encourage you to return or try it for your first time. You won't be disappointed. Park across the street in the lot if the street spots are taken. One caveat, in the winter the dining room gets a little chilly when the front door is opened.

    The service was quite good, from the hostess to Burt, our waiter. The food was exceptional, from the appetizers through the main courses to dessert and coffee. My only suggestion is that the main course was small. In short, I left hungry, and that was a bit disappointing.

    Awesome flavor, presentation, and I loved the complimentary sweet and spicy peanuts. A huge Lu's for me is how fresh the food is AND how hot it comes to the table! I appreciated the fact that I could savor each bite because I wasn't rushing to eat it before it got cold. Prices are high- portions are small , but it wouldn't keep me from going back occasionally to check out their different menus.

    Had a wonderful first experience at Funky 'Lil Kitchen. The menu is small and changes regularly with the seasons - sometimes it is nice not to be confronted with pages of choices. The service was excellent, and the food was beautifully served - many layered flavors and textures in each dish. The decor is charming, and not over-done - ambiance perfect for lingering over a home-cooked meal and sharing conversation. Walked out feeling satisfied, not over-stuffed, and very much looking forward to coming back to this Pottstown gem.

    What an amazing meal. Mushroom gnocchi was so delicious and the cream sauce was velvety and full flavored, with fresh sage it was incredible. Roasted chicken with coconut,mango,cashews was pure heaven. It was my husband's meal, but I made him give it to me! My braised pork shank with yams & broccoli was also phenomenal. Our friend had the pork belly with root beer oatmeal -wow. The flavor of the oatmeal was superb. Everything was amazing and reminded me of why FLK is truly my very favorite restaurant. The creativity and the uniqueness of the combinations is by far the best of fine dining in a casual atmosphere. Banana-walnut bread pudding topped off the meal with a delicious bang. FLK is simply THE BEST!
