Diner Reviews
  • " I started with the heirloom tomato gazpacho which was a delight on a warm summer evening. I chose the day scallops entre which was perfectly prepared with a medley of light summer flavors complimenting the perfectly cooked sweet scallops. For dessert I ordered the citrus cheese cake which my server recommended, a light yet rich combination of citrus chocolate and cheese flavors which was a perfect ending to a great meal. I am looking forward to exploring the rest of the menu"

  • "Creative combinations of delicious, fresh foods. Perfectly prepared fish. Watermelon, tomato, plum, onion and arugala salad combined sweet, bitter, and acidic for an electrifying taste. Perfect service in this seemingly undiscovered, romantic, spot. Exceptional breads. And the best sangria in town!"

  • "The four of us had a very nice dinner prior to theater. The staff were very friendly with on time service. The food was very good just a bit pricey for the portions. A nice place all in all. Valet parking was appreciated at the Sofitel Hotel."

  • "They weren't very busy on a Sunday night, so the noise level may be higher at other times, but it was a delightfully quiet, elegant space. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly, and the food was tasty and beautifully presented. We also learned that they are committed to offering low-calorie alternatives -- in my case a delicious gazpacho, a lovely roasted "amish chicken" with fresh veggies, and a mango mouse and berries. Modest portions, hold the carbs and fats, and really tasty. Nice job!"

  • "We enjoyed a very nice dinner here. The service was friendly and attentive. We appreciated the fact that there is a light choice from each portion of the menu - including dessert. The halibut was perfectly cooked and delicious. My companion had the Amish chicken and enjoyed it. The homemade sorbet was a perfect finish. "

  • "Our group of 7 ladies used a deal for Afternoon Tea and we had a great time! The tea I had, Du Hammam, was excellent! And the sandwiches/scones/desserts were just as good. After our food was dropped off, our server disappeared and we didn't see her for another 20 min... so a check in would have been nice, but overall it was a nice treat."

  • "My fiance and I had a dinner here. The location is a little weird, as it is in the hotel lobby. However, I loved the overall atmosphere and the staff was very attentive. Our food was delicious! We requested a quieter spot in the restaurant, and they put us in this corner, which was nice because we had some more privacy. We were all dressed up, and I felt a little overdressed, as there were some hotel guests there, but it was okay because it was our special date night!"

  • "Went here for RW with friends. The food was ok, nothing special. First course we all had the French Onion soup, which was served table side into a bowl containing bread and cheese. For all of the fanfare, it was average f.o. soup that could have come from a can. For the second course, I had the short ribs and a friend had the salmon. The sor ribs were cooked well, but could have had more flavor. The salmon was good, but not outstanding. For dessert, my friends chose the creme brulee and I had the chocolate pretzel bread pudding. Both selections were horrible. Would not eat here again or recommend to anyone."

  • "My friend and I always select restaurants that we have not eaten in before during Restaurant Week and that is why we choose Liberte at the Sofitel Hotel. We were both pleasantly surprised at not only the wonderful food, but also the superior service. I would recommend and already have recommended this restaurant to my family and friends. This restaurant is definitely on my favorites list."

  • "My fiancé and I went there for restaurant week and it was absolutely horrible. Everything was either too salty or not seasoned enough. We didn't even finish our food. Just paid the bill and left. It was the worst food I've had in a very long time"

  • "Went for afternoon tea, the room was beautiful but service and tea sandwiches were equal to free-standing "tea" restaurants."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "I have had high tea at several locations and was a bit disappointed with the small sample of tea sandwiches served. There were too many desserts and too few tea sandwiches for a mature palate. The scones were very good, tow per person was reasonable. Since this is a new venture for Liberte, I think you have time to make adjustments to the offerings before word gets out."

  • "Whenever my wife and I visit Philadelphia we always stay at the Sofitel Hotel. And, even though we plan to try other restaurants, we end up eating most of our meals in the hotel's Liberté Lounge because the food and service can't be beat. My wife especially loves the rack of lamb. On our last trip when we got back from an evening out, we stopped in the Liberté for a late night drink, and even though the bar was really popping, it wasn't loud and we enjoyed ourselves."

  • "We arrived a bit late and Receptionist was so gracious and sat us quickly. Watress was fun and engaging, seamlessly offering refreshments and quickly apprising us of the specials and offered good commentary on each of the Entres. It was a great dining experience and the food was superb."

  • "My friend and I went to Liberte Urban chic Lounge for lunch. The setting is lovely and quiet enough for good conversation. But the food was disappointing. I ordered the Thai Cobb Salad, which, at $16 was pricey, but sounded interesting. It looked beautiful in the plate but it was truly awful to eat -- bland and unpleasant. My friend ordered squash soup and a side pear salad. She had to add a ton of salt and pepper to the soup to try to get some flavor in her mouth, and even then, she didn't finish her meal because it was simply not good."

  • "I was setting up a dinner for my networking group and made the reservation here. Some of us arrived early and the host had our table ready in a snap. We had planned for 8 but when another four showed up they helped us extend the table to accommodate the entire group. The food and drinks were great and our waitress was very friendly and helped my guests have a better experience. We were also surprised at how reasonable the bill was considering the quality of the food and how well decorated the area is. Thanks!"

  • "The atmosphere is between a hotel restaurant and a hotel bar. That being said, the rack of Colorado lamb was fabulous. Great appetizers and sorbet. The food is fantastic. Very pleasant atmosphere. Short, but very good, wine list. Short, but very good, menu."

  • "I went during Restaurant Week. I was a little skeptical going to a restaurant inside a hotel, but the food turned out to be better than I expected. They provided a nice selection of breads. I had the potato bean soup which was good. My second course was the Spring Rolls...not bad. My main course was the Beet-Cured Salmon. I really enjoyed this dish. I've had salmon many ways, but never had I had it marinated in beets. And the veggies it sat on was yummy. Not sure what it was though! Lastly, the dessert was my favorite. Didn't sound that thrilling. I had the apple sorbet. I loved it! I would have finished it all if I wasn't so full. Service was very helpful. I would recommend this restaurant!"

  • "Tried this restaurant for the first time during restaurant week. Service was excellent. The tables were adjusted to allow our party of 6 to be able to chat easily. The noise level allowed for conversation. Every aspect of the menu was delicious. We will return for sure."

  • "Although the food was quite good it was so cold in the restaurant I mended hot soup to warm up. I won't be going back until the ac is off!"
    Dined on 8/19/2013
  • "A friend and I decided to grab dinner there because it was steaming hot outside and the other local French restaurants have mostly outdoor seating. When we got there, it was very obvious that 99% of the people in the restaurant were staying at the hotel it is connected to. The food was fine, but it wasn't anything to write home about. If you were staying at the Sofitel it would have been a good choice, but since we were outsiders wit did not really work for us."
