Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant melds flavors of food and spices to bring out unique sight, smells and taste. No over the top sauces just interesting food combinations."

  • "Great dining experience. A wide variety of food well prepared and presented. My favorite was the grilled octopus. I would recommend this to anyone."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Our party of 4 tried the tasting menu. Food was fantastic. Octopus is the best I've had in the Philly area by far and the Earl Grey sorbet was a great way to end the meal. Service was a little slow taking (45 minutes before our order was taken), but since we were catching up with friends from out-of-town it was okay. The food service once our order was placed was good."

  • "Wow....what a nice surprise! My wife and I eaten at Majolica over a year ago and had a nice meal but nothing extremely memorable. On Friday we dined there again with two other couples and had an OUTSTANDING meal! Wonderful and variable selections on the menu----so many so that our group had difficulty deciding. Everyone ordered something different and we shared tastes-----each entree was better than the other and the starters were also incredible. Definitely now on my list of favorites-----this one holds its own with the best of NY or Philly restaurants. Something's changed here and its all GOOD!"

  • "I came to Majolica for a date night with my boyfriend. I came in after hearing how great the place was from a friend. We did the six course tasting which was out of this world. I love doing chef tastings and this was no exception. The six course ended up being a ten course with the teasers they give you in between. I love that!! What a great place to have a truly good meal and enjoy the company you keep."

  • "Celebrating a milestone birthdays with two amazing friends! Majolica was the absolute perfect restaurant for the occasion. The menu was incredibly unique and interesting. The flavors, presentation and service were impeccable. I can say enough about the food because words are nearly impossible to describe the delicious wonder. I'm truly hooked on this awesome restaurant!"

  • "It takes a lot for me to criticize service, and it wasn't the waiters fault. However, we were seated a half hour after our reservations, while tables were clearly available. And an hour after being seated we still did not have our entrees. We did have the pork and scallop appetizer which was great, but we left after waiting 45 between our app and entrees. So by that point, it was an hour and a half after our reservation and we hadn't eaten, in a half full restaurant."

  • "I really liked everything about the place...atmosphere, food, service. It was a Wednesday evening so the place was pretty empty...loved that! I would definitely recommend and you can byob so that keeps the cost down."

  • "Very good food. Appetizer portions are really large, so think about sharing. Short ribs were a standout as was the seafood stew. We were too full to try dessert so that will have to wait until next time. Love the fact that it is a BYOB as with a group of six, we saved a lot of money."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I would have to say this is one of the poorer meals and experiences we had. Appetizers were fine. The wait for our main courses was excruciatingly long. When the meals finally did arrive, both were total disappointments. I ordered the short ribs. The top was burned to a crisp, while the rest of the meat was still somewhat tough. My wife ordered the swordfish, which was cut down the center before it arrived to test the temperature, which isnt something I would expect at a restaurant. In addition, the fried fingerlings were dumped on the plate and most were burned. Our server noticed neither of us ate our meal, but didnt ask if there were any problems and simply took the plates. I would recommend not to waste your time here."

  • "Very good food but highly oversalted. This overpowered good fresh fish and a rich brie sauce on the butternut pasta.Pity!"

  • "server steered my wife to the pork, it was served 1/2 raw, she could not eat, i had tuna that was dry. We did not get proper glasses for wine like other guests. the escargot was dry and salty. for all its reputation it was a bust. we will not return nor reccommend. ps: they did nothing to over come our disappointment, except remove the uneaten pork from the bill."

  • "Everything about this restaurant is exceptional. The only fault I can find is that my entree could have been hotter, but the food and service are generally outstanding. We'll be back!"

  • "Excellent menu and ambiance accented with delightful array of small palate teasers"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We might have had the best of dining experiences but for the noise level in the front area of the restaurant. It became next to impossible to hear above the din of the larger party seated near us. The food was wonderful, service impeccable.......too bad we will probably not return because we cherish atmospheres where we can converse with friends without yelling. Perhaps the seating toward the back of the restaurant may have been better."

  • "This was a great place for to enjoy top notch food and very attentive service. My husband and I enjoyed our night out...well worth the drive to Phoenixville which was an hour for us!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The service was excellent and the food was amazing. The menu is very diverse and as a BYOB, the price for the meals is offset by a nice bottle of wine that arrived with you."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "After a very long time, we finally got to Mojolica for dinner. Menu offers quite a selection of items not found on most restaurants. Everything was very tasty and prices were as expected for this type of venue. Only disappointment was the duck was a bit on the chewy side but taste compensated for it. As the night was bitter cold, table near front of room was a bit chilly although the waiter moved a space heater near us to help. Should have just moved to a table near the back as the chill took away from the experience a bit. Will go back though."

  • "We took a group of friends to Majolica to celebrate my husband's 45th birthday and it did not disappoint. The service was impeccable, as always, and the food was fantastic. It always is. Highly recommend. Great for a date night, special occasion or just a night out for people who enjoy good food."

  • "Excellent menu with diverse fare. The moulard duck and monkfish were excellent! Great midweek business dinner location: Quiet and suitable for discussion."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "This visit did not live up to prior experience there nor to my expectations given its ratings and reviews. My shortribs, while tender, were almost bone dry and missing that fatty internal juice that woos you when done right. The mashed potatoes underneath were not bad, just lame. This would be an excellent meal in a diner but not at Majolica."

  • "Another fabulous meal at Majolica. The food here is simply amazing every time I visit! If you have not witnessed the genius of the Best Chef in Chester County what are you waiting for? Highly recommended."

  • "My wife and I were so impressed that food could taste so flavorful, and have such a variety of flavors at the same time. The choice seasonings Andrew chooses were perfect for making my mouth explode with flavors. The wait staff was extremely welcoming and attentive, and I will recommend this restaurant to all of my friends."

  • "The entrees were good however the side dishes had little imagination. They were plain and disappointing. Theerefore the presentation was lacking"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The evening featured a fixed price four course dinner with four options for each course. We made a decision from the jump not to duplicate any of our choices in order to try as many things as possible. Each of the eight choices we had were unbelievable! Our meal included oysters, smoked salmon (smoked in-house of course), grilled octopus, veal sweetbreads, duck, braised short ribs, a cheese tray, and a flourless chocolate cake with homemade salted caramel ice cream. The meal was one of the best we've ever had. Aside from the food, the service was stellar, and allowed guests to relax and enjoy each course without feeling rushed. Looking forward to returning soon. Thanks for a great evening out."

  • "This was our first time dining at Majolica. The food and service were both high quality. Menu choices, though limited, offered something for a variety of tastes or preferences. Our server was very professional offering suggestions but not pushing any particular dish. We will definitely be dining here again."

  • "Food, service and ambiance are top notch! Savory and perfectly spiced are the best descriptors for the lamb dish. The swordfish dish marked an innovative combination of ingredients - grapefruit and fennel - that worked in harmony. The short rib dish was homey yet elegant. My friends and I also took delight in the cucumber sorbet, tuna tartare appetizer and cheese plate – all wonderfully flavored and creatively presented. The server was warm and attentive even amid the usual Friday night rush. He showed remarkable patience with our excessive cackling and hugging. Lastly, the posh surroundings get high marks. The hardwood floors, weathered brick walls and tasteful, colorful art lent a gallery feel to the space. I will return ASAP!"

  • "We've never been disappointed here. The food, as expected, was really outstanding. I appreciate that the chef is working with the best seasonal ingredients. The menu doesn't get stale. However, for my wife's sake, I hope the chef never gets tired of making those dessert donuts."

  • "After many years of hearing about Majolica, we finally decided to give it a try. True, the menu is limited but it is diverse and interesting. The portions were large and we left completely stuffed (no room left for dessert!). We had an early reservation (6 pm), and upon arriving we were brought to the back of the restaurant to a table near the opened basement door. After reading a previous review, I decided to request that we be moved to another table away from the draft. They were more than happy to move us, and we remained toasty throughout our excellent meal. We had a nice chat with the chef as we left. All in all, a nice evening at a local gem of a restaurant. We will definitely be back."

  • "The menu choices were a bit odd. I like different types of food, but this was a little much for me. Could not find anything that appealed to me. The bread they brought out was excellent and the chief's complimentary appetizer was wonderful. I had the short ribs and it was kind of like onion soup in a bowl. Had lots of bread on top and cheese....wasn't what I thought it would be. My friend had the cauliflower soup with mussels and said hers was delicious."
