Great combination of good
Great combination of good food, and singing servers. The jazz was okay, but the servers made the night. Without the good food, however, who would care - the total package is what makes The High Note Cafe special. I'd recommend it.

Wow. We were delighted with
Wow. We were delighted with the restaurant and the singing of the wait staff! The food was just fine, but the whole experience was really fabulous. I almost hate to write a good review, since I would love to keep this a secret so we can always get a table. However, that's not fair to the restaurant, the staff and other diners.

Very good, fun place
This is a great little neighborhood restaurant. Enter through the pizza parlor to the dining area in the back. A pianist was playing jazz and singing show tunes, Sinatra, etc. Very good!!! The food....., ahh the food. It was great. Pasta dishes were excellent with complimentary sauces(not drowned). Portions were large so that we all took home leftovers. For dessert, one of my dining friends said the cannolli was the best one he's ever had. Prices were not bad at all. No opera singing the night we were there, so we WILL return for that. Very cool place!!!

It was my first time there and was a great night out. The waiter "Antny" (Anthony) was a pleasure. He had that South Philly humor and laughed with us even when we were breakin' them. He made our night as much as the good food and the entertainment. A good all round combination.

My husband and I have been coming there for the 4th time for our anniversary. We know the food will be good and there will be good entertainment. What a good place to go to and its local too.

Cabaret show and a great dinner
I knew that the Broadway Bash show was going to be terrific, but I never expected the excellent dinner that preceeded it. The food was high quality with excellent preparation. House wines offered were generously poured and wines by the bottle specially priced.
Most "dinner theater" venues treat food as an afterthought, not here. We attended for the show , but will definitely return for the food and atmosphere.

I find the food to be the best in South Philly. Everything is great- pasta,pizza appetizers. I even had fish that was delicious. I think the service is excellent. I love the music but find that if you are trying to have a conversation it is a bit too loud for a small place.

A Philly Classic
The High Note is a gem. The food is classic, well prepared Italian fare....and they give you plenty. If you need a fix of terrific Italian food you don't need to look any further. In addition the opera singing waitstaff or the Sunday piano man are sure to entertain. Everyone is pleasant and attentive !!!

From the fresh baked rolls drizzled with olive oil and fresh herbs to the chocolate mousse cake and all points in between. I've been here more than 15 times and I'm still amazed every time. When I saw that the menu had changed I was worried (FOR ABOUT A HALF A SECOND!!!). Don't worry veterans, the hot Italian sausage and broccoli rabe appetizer is still intact!! There are so many wonderful additions, you just can't go wrong!! Don't miss the Clams Casino, they'll renew your faith in mankind!! Whether come on a classical or a jazz night, you'll thoroughly enjoy yourself at the High Note Café!!!

We go here to see our musician
We go here to see our musician friends perform but they do serve some good Italian favorites and are usually warm and friendly. The house wine is a good deal too.

Great Fun and Food!
I took a friend who was never to Philly here, I wanted to take her to experience a real philadelphia restaurant where she would get to experience the great food and people this city. We have a super fun time. Excellent food to go along the great music. Couldn't have been better.
