    Great food, served by an attentive, yet unobtrusive staff made this one of the best dining experiences my wife and I ever enjoyed. We both settled on the Prix Fixe 6 course menu and spent the next 2 1/2 hours enjoying ourselves. On a busy Friday night the staff were courteous and attentive, as well as very friendly. Our waiter, Jean Claude was exceptional, as were the rest of the staff there. The best Philadelphia has to offer.

    Dined on 3/21/2008
    The Fountain was the best restaurant experience I have had in Phildelphia. I am a foody and frequent diner all around the city, and after experiecing the tasting menu paired with wine, I was never so impressed. The only bad thing I have to say is that when retrieving our car, we noticed something missing, and it was very clear the valet service had treated themselves to our fortune.

    The FOUNTAIN ROOM is our favorite restaurant. The ambiance is elegant but the service is impeccable! A delight from start to finish---they make you feel like royalty!! We had taken my parents there for their 60th Wedding Anniversary and returned to celebrate our son's MBA graduation. My Dad had recently passed away but the staff made my Mother feel so special on Friday night, it made our evening, even tho the celebration was for our son.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2003VIP
    Dined on 3/21/2008
    I've eaten here for dinner before, and was just a bit disappointed that the lunch we had 2 days ago was not quite as special as I had remembered the dinners being. Instead of trying to make dinner dishes a bit more modest (and with a selection certainly more modest), why not emphasize "lunch" items: glorious salads, interesting combinations of appetizers, other "smaller" house specialties. Everything else was as wonderful as I had remembered.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    They had a huge wine list but no sommelier, or any wine savvy staff, to help us through it. We described to our waiter what liked (New World, big, full bodied red(s), on the fruity side - Australian Shiraz(s), blend(s), California Zins) he recommended a blend a 2005 Steltzner Claret... it wasn't what we expected, disappointing. We started with the champagne oysters, they tasted like balsamic vinegar, and the sweetbreads which were very nice. We also had the caesar salad which was salty a theme that would continue throughout the evening... oh by the way I like to add to salt to potato chips, so if I say something salty it's brutal. Our entree's were Veal tenderloin and cheeks w/exotic mushroom risotto... the veal was excellent but the ri
