When you cannot celebrate at home.
Passover type meal was great. Of special note is the best gefilte fish I have ever had. The service is always of the highest

We have not been to London
We have not been to London for years. No particular reason; we always enjoyed it but must have forgotten about it. I'm very glad that we went back. The food was great; service excellent. The decor left something to be desired but we were there to eat so that didn't bother us. Now that we've rediscovered London, we will definitely be back.

Great for Sunday brunch!
First time in this area of Philly and we will definitely go back. Great food selections and reasonable priced. Loved the Bloody Mary bar!

Sunday brunch was special.
Sunday brunch was special. Eggs Benedict were superb. Perfect yolk. The Bloody fix-it-yourself bar was fun and the ingredients were varied and tasty.

Randomly decided to go out
Randomly decided to go out on Fairmount Ave. somewhere today; I picked this place and was not disappointed. We had a whole section of the restaurant to ourselves as most other customers were electing to sit in the ample outdoor seating section. The server was very attentive and amiable and made the dinner very enjoyable. The food was good. The salmon and duck breast platters were exquisite (although the dates that came along side the duck were less than stellar...I'm just not a "date" dude.) The octopus appetizer was EXCELLENT, but the calamari appetizer was a little too thicker breaded for my liking. Still good though. The pre-meal bread was also very good...strangely sweet. Great location on Fairmount. Great restaurant / bar.

Great beer selection
The variety of Hefeweizen selections on draft is impressive. Combine the great beer offerings with the eclectic menu, and Londion Grill is a wonderful option in Fairmont section.

Love this restaurant
The London is one of the best values for great food in the city. Excellent food, great service, well trained staff, and great ambiance to boot - can sit outside, sunny porch on cool days, open airy dining area and great bar area. Many great meals here, and finally getting around to saying something!

Reliable Neighborhood Spot
I've been to London many times and always had a good experience. It's a great date spot with friendly service.

Large table mid-week
We had no problem getting a large table on a Wed night in the summer. Our table was ready for us, our server was friendly and very attentive. The food was solid. Loved the twice fried chicken. The kimchi was very spicy and great for a first try of the dish. There were plenty of options for the teens. Consistent with the previous review I read, the prices were reasonable.

First time for dinner
We had a great time here on Saturday night for dinner with friends. We sat at a lovely table in the atrium room. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful with the specials (there were a lot of them). It happened to be lobster month, so we tried the lobster cheesecake which was to die for! Their cocktail and drink selection is outstanding, I can't wait to come back and try more. The food was delicious, beautifully plated, perfect portions, and worth the price. I've been here a few times for happy hour, and so glad I came for dinner. It's still laid back and comfortable in the dining room with top-notch food and service. We will be back soon!

Reliable and good
This is a go-to place in the neighborhood, and I went with a friend for dinner on a recent Tuesday night. We were in the greenhouse-y part of the dining area, so it was lively without being overwhelmingly noisy. I like the calamari - crispy and not greasy - and it was more than enough for us to share. My friend had the salmon, which came medium rare as ordered; she scraped off the aioli, but that's because she's really not a sauce person, not because it wasn't good. My shiitake risotto with lobster was pretty good, although the lobster pieces were quite small and a bit overwhelmed by the smokiness of the mushrooms. Service was a bit leisurely, but we weren't pressed for time so it was OK. The bar was busy, but didn't intrude on us.

Lobster in August
We went there to celebrate my birthday & wanted to see what their August Lobster special was all about. We were not disappointed ! My husband & I shared the lobster appetizer which was a large small plate. Already half full we opted for lobster roll each! Super! Since we are right in the neighborhood we will be back for 11/4lb whole lobster for $25! August has restored my faith in this little neighborhood gem. Suggestion: Request sitting in their atrium for a more quiet atmosphere .

Food was great
We loved the Korean fried chicken and the roasted beet side dish. Also the truffle frittes are worth going for alone!

One of my faves
I try to go to London every few months. The food is great. It's a nice change from Center City scene.

Visited for a late dinner - nothing fancy. The London Burger was very tasy and hit the spot. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her chicken sandwich. Will definitely add this restaurant to our favorites.

Close to Barnes, Rodin + Art Museum
Great bar/resto for neighborhood feel if you are in the area. Service and food are great - and decor is warm + cozy. Also a good happy hour and easy to park at on Fairmount Rd.

this is our repeat visit to
this is our repeat visit to London Grill. Just as the first time - everything was on a high level; the food, the service, suggestions, etc
The only "eh" was the charcuterie appetizer. Most meats came a bit on a fatty side and on the overall this was not enjoyed by the party present - definitely could've done without that.
Otherwise - very enjoyable

A longtime favorite restaurant
We discovered London Grill about ten years ago. We visit Philadelphia once a year and always eat at least one meal there, usually two. Excellent menu, wonderful service, and being next door to Eastern State Penitentiary? Added bonus. There are a number of good restaurants in this area, we've tried most of them. LG is our favorite.

The London is always a reliable place for a good meal. The service is great. Hot apple cider in the winter months... Yum.

Review - London Grille
Great place for casual dining. The food is very good & reasonably priced. The salad I had and the leg of lamb was very very good. After dinner, on various occasions you can listen to great Jazz music by John Vanore and his band in the upstairs restaurant.
I will eat there again and recommend it to my friends.

Always A Great Meal!
The food was fantastic. We often come for brunch, lunch and dinner and the food is always consistent and flavorful. The portions are good and the service is always friendly and done well. The egg sandwich with ham was incredible as was the amazing side portion of bacon. The lemon rigotta pancakes were also amazing. The menu has regular year-round menus and other seasonal items and the dishes are always fantastic. I always take friends and family here.

wonderful Thanksgiving buffet
This was the second year I took my family to the London Grill for Thanksgiving. The food was delicious, our server was pleasant and helpful (she made an excellent wine recommendation). Overall it was a lovely holiday dinner. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to let someone else do the holiday cooking!
