    Solid all around - service could be a little more attentive - had to wait a while between drinks. Outside seating was charming - new Chef has made some nice changes to menu. Craft beer selection is solid.

    Went here for Sunday Brunch. This is a perfect location for outdoor dining; the street isn't very busy and it was nice to see neighborhood people walking on the street. Brunch menu is varied and will satisfy all tastes...sweet, savory, vegetarian, meat-eater... They also have a great cocktail/bar menu. Overall service was attentive but not overwhelming. Will definitely go back.

    Great service, very good food and no ruch. We were a party of 8 and had an enjoyable Sunday afternoon brunch. We tried a few of the menu cocktails - both versions of the Bloody Mary were very good. We had a variety of food, from more traditional breakfast fare to more lunch oriented choices. Mussels were great, steak and eggs very good. We will be back for dinner.

    Pub and Kitchen is a wonderful little hot spot on 20th Street. Great service, nice to sit outside and the food is simply amazing. Not very fancy but beautifully prepared, a visual delight and equally delicious. Wait staff are friendly and professional and there is a nice atmosphere in this neighborhood gem. Definitely come as the drink menu is solid, there is a nice bar to sit and eat or enjoy a drink or two with friends.

    Pub & Kitchen is our "go to" restaurant for any meal. The menu has enough variety that you can choose to eat lightly or more substantially. We love the rabbit meatballs, the grilled romaine salad and the fries are always perfect. My only issue is the back room. Even after some updating, it is not very inviting and can be very loud when the restaurant is full. Opt for the bar area or outside.

    Awesome pub style restaurant. Like many restaurants in Philadelphia, the tables are very close together and it can be quite noisy. The food was high end pub fare, I had a pulled pork sandwich and some chicken wings. Both were excellent. It has a casual atmosphere and in an area with not many restaurants, i suggest you seek this one out.

    The food was excellent but the noise level was way over the top, and the tables a little too close together for comfort. Great for the 20s, early 30s crowd that made up the majority of the patrons.

    I cannot believe that the rabbit/pig bar has been so close to my house and I have never made it in for dinner. Went there with a couple friends Friday night and from the appetizers (Get the Mussels=) ) to the dj it was a super fun time. Cannot wait to go back to try brunch.

    After browsing the Rittenhouse Art Show, we opted for an early dinner. Glad we did. By 8pm the crowds were waiting. Tables were fairly empty at 6pm, except for a few large parties. We shared app of chicken wings, they were awesome! My grilled prawns were served with faro and English peas, very flavorful. The hangar steak my husband had was equally delicious! Nice wine and beer selections. Our waiter, Nathan, was very helpful with suggestions and good conversation, always available, with excellent timing. We opted for the panecotta for dessert. It was so light and served with strawberries in a glaze. I would have given 5 stars, if not for the deafening noise level, plus, as the tables filled, got even worse! Go for the food anyway.

    P & K is not improved at all, as Leban claims, and he gives them 4 stars??? Their menu is limited and idiosyncratic--the 4 of us had a hard time finding dishes we wanted to order. Most of us did not like our food; service was the slowest I've ever experienced--it took 25 mins to get our bottle of wine and an hour to receive our food. We had the slowest waitress on earth. Noise level is beyond anyplace we've ever been--way, way too loud. And they remodeled the place?? Looked exactly as it had in the past with the exception of tufted backs to the uncomfortable benches. Would not recommend this place at all.

    the food was well-prepared, fresh, tasty and the menu (with popular 21st century foods such as kale, dandelion greens, barley, ramps, etc.) was nice. The noise level was uncomfortably deafening (even for the 20 somethings in our party) so i regretably will not return despite the well prepared food.

    Charming pub worth the drive from 'burbs. Service was very attentive...appetizers outrageously unique and delicious... cheeseburger among the best I've had. And the panacotta for desert was the perfect light ending to very satisfying meal. Can't forget to mention the Escorpion, which alone was worth the hunt for a parking space. A solution to the noise would be worth pursuing... but after so many years of marriage, not sure I missed too much! :)
