Exquisite!This was the best mother's day treat!
I had also loved the experience several years ago, on a romantic dinner while dating who is now my husband of 5 years.
I will definitely recommend it to all our friends. We parked in Fairmount Park and spent the rest of our afternoon walking around the Museum grounds in the sun...
Eugenia Porello5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayExcellent food quality and selection, also a very attentive staff.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch - Food & artWe were at the restaurant for (Mother's Day) brunch - it was very nice. Just a little hectic getting into the art museum b/c of the Race for the Cure marathon that day, but it was easier than in past years. This was our 16th Mother's Day brunch there - a great idea for Moms who enjoy art and great food. The food was, as usual, great (thanks Mr. Starr!) And the staff was BEYOND pleasant! They were very attentive and helpful, never had to ask for anything. Also thanks to Eric the manager, who ask patrons for feedback. Keep up the good work. Mother's Day Brunch there is the best kept secret.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWIERD BACKGROUND MUSICThe room is very nice but the music being played in the background just didn't fit the atmosphere. This is an upscale restaurant inside a museum and the music was more like rap. Mozart would have been more appropriate.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food / Accessable atmosphereEach time we dine at Granite Hill, after a great music & art experience, we are impressed. The service is perfect and not rushed. The salmon/artichoke heart/carrots was perfectly cooked and seasoned so that the natural flavors were enhanced. Added a side listed with another entre without fuss. The experience was refreshing and comfortable. Perfect way to celebrate the end of our work week and the experience complimented the attractions of the Museum venue as a place for Jazz on a Friday night. We capped off the evening by taking a stroll down to the river to enjoy the sight of the water and boathouses and the lovely cool breeze off the water. So much natural beauty and artistry in one area was a joy to experience. Coming back soon.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMspecial treatA friend I haven't seen for a while and I wanted to have a nice lunch and a pleasant afternoon at the museum, and Granite Hill provided the perfect food and setting for the day5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect way to relax!This was our first experience having Brunch this past Sunday. A friend was in the city for the first time attending a conference and she wanted to see the Art Museum and of course the Rocky statue and steps before making her train! We met her after the conference was over and decided to take her to the Granite Hill for brunch. It worked out perfectly. We were able to relax, catch up before her train and the food was very good. Our young friend and I chose the white bean soup and roasted beet salad. My husband had the omelet with brie along with the sweet basket. Everything was very good and nicely presented. We plan on having lunch again on our next visit to the museum and perhaps dinner should the timing be appropriate.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMService was terrific(our serverService was terrific(our server was very informative about the food and the art work surrounding us. The food was really good(Porcini mushroom Pappardelle noodles with Swiss chard had just a little bit too much oil but the flavor was spot on) Roasted chicken was very tender and tasty. Desserts were really really good(toasted pound cake with apples and vanilla bean gelato) Peach cobbler was amazing not too sweet. Our table of 4 all agreed we would dine at Granite Hill again. Oh and the Bloody Mary was one of the best I've had. On the small side for 10.00 but had awesome flavor and a real kicky spice to it. It would be amazing if they added a celery stick and a jumbo shrimp on the edge-Yummy.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and fabulous serviceWe like the chefs special selections on the buffet for lunch-the foodis seasonal, beautifully presented and delicious.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful "Pause" whileA wonderful "Pause" while looking at art excellent4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster BrunchWent for Easter brunch- 2nd year in a row; it is a prix fixe buffet rather than the usual ala carte. The food was quite good, although they ran out of at least one dessert item before we got to the table. They also had flavored waters which was a nice touch. The assortment was good, although I have been to comparable brunches in the area with a wider assortment. Still we were pleased with the meal. It is a bit pricey- $45 per person for what is largely an omelet, smoked fish, scrapple/ham, salad, and a dessert. Pricey but well prepared; it is a lovely setting and we will likely go back.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Brunch in combinationExcellent Brunch in combination with some exhibitions.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food but so-so ambienceI had the white bean soup and salmon and my fiancé had thE Drench onion soup and chicken. The salmon was OK but the chicken was wonderful. The place had an institutional feeling and not much pizzaz. If you go through the west entrance, you don't have to pay museum admission to get in.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOur food was fantastic andOur food was fantastic and the staff was so friendly and helpful.

Food exceeded expectations Amy's service was first rate. Nice wine list. A great find for an upscale lunch.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis lovely restaurant housedThis lovely restaurant housed inside the Philadelphia Museum of Art is one we enjoyed on a previous visit to the area. Our Sunday lunch/brunch was made even more delightful by our server, Amy. Her enthusiastic description of the chicken salad filled with greens, thin slices of apples and roasted squash tossed with a cider vinaigrette was on target. The bacon and brie omelet was also a big hit. A perfect meal in a beautiful setting.2/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
