We had not been to the SaloonWe had not been to the Saloon in over 10 years and went for a special anniversary on a week night. The service was outstanding and the food was not to be missed! We had the raddicio crab salad that they are famous for along with an octopus salad that was some of the most tender octopus I've had. The dover sole was delicate and the Lobster Diavlo, spicy but with great flavor. A great meal!!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love the Saloon! The foodWe love the Saloon! The food is wonderful, and the service spectacular. We will come back again and again!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner with friendsThe Saloon came highly recommended by friends. I had out of town guests coming to visit and suggested
we head into Philly from West Chester and give it a try. Free parking available within a half block -a real plus. Great neighborhood restaurant. Cozy bar area and interesting decor. We we there on a Friday night and not too busy. Service was good and staff was friendly. Lots of specials-almost too many to remember. Appetizers and wine came out quickly, however, entres took about 25 minutes to arrive. We didn't mind as we were not in a hurry and were just enjoying the time out. All in all a good dinng experience and my out of town guests enjoyed the meal and experience. The veal is awesome!!! Well worth the 45 minute drive into the city.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways FantasticI had not been to The Saloon for many years. We decided to go as a last minute plan.

Another wonderful visit to this great restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Mother's DayWe went for Mother's Day and my wife and son (7-yo) had an outstanding time. Meghan was great!
Thank you.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Philadelphia ClassicGlad to come back to the Saloon. Was THE place to bring a client or celebrate a business or personal event. May not attract the same power house crowd it attracted years ago but it’s still great. Many classics remain on the menu and the quality is still outstanding. And still has the best wait staff in town. Will return5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe hadn't been here in yearsWe hadn't been here in years and it was excellent!!!!

The cheese at the start and the Pesto was delicious, competent serious service, can't wait to go back,4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to return!!!We were very pleased with our dinner at the Saloon.
We consider it the Union League of fine restaurants.
The service is impeccable and the food was even better.
To top it off we felt that it was very reasonably priced for what we ate.
I used to think this was a tourist attraction but I was wrong. It is a neighborhood gem for sure.
We loved our friendly bartender also. He recommended drinks for us that were fabulous.
This is a place where everything comes together. If we had to change one thing, it would be the decor.
But honestly, that is part of it's charm.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a wonderful philadelphiaAlways a wonderful philadelphia dinning experience.

You won't be disappointed EVER if you go there. They often have a band on Friday nights that is a lot of fun, the food is never disappointing and an extensive selection, bar and bartender are fun. Overall a very memorable place and experience. Highly recommend!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch...This is a top notch restaurant. They had the best vesl parm I've had in a long time. The bread and cannoli were simply amazing.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI haven't been to the SaloonI haven't been to the Saloon in years but wanted to go back to this old place in South Phila. It was excellent. Not a new place with innovative food, and a great alternative to that. (One small note-the wine pour was a little light.) All in all, a great time and a great evening. Service and the people could not have been nicer. A real classic.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the staff and theAs always the staff and the food were wonderful. They atmosphere is what does it for me. You feel like you went back in time to South Philly. The bar is great, the clientele is always fun to observe. Net - net I have never had a bad experience here.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasion dinnerI thought the food was very good, but under-seasoned. I don't cook with salt at home, so for me to have this comment speaks volumes. Just a little extra flavor in the sauce would have been great. Everything was very fresh and delicate, but very little depth of flavor. Make sure you dress well if you go!2/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again they out did themselves.Once again they out did themselves. Incredible food, ambience and service. A true philadelphia highlight. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Way cool atmosphere and super food and service.1/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceThis is a classic Philly Restaurant. We ate there with our two kids (3 &11). The food is well prepared. My kids ate pasta and Ravioli, while I had the Veal Saltimboca. (I forget what my wife had). The Veal was excellent, and may have been the best Salimboca that I have eaten! The deserts were also very tasty.
Most importantly, the waitstaff and management treated us very well. The service was on point and friendly.
The free parking nearby was an added bonus.1/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHit it out of the park againIncredible food, service and atmosphere. I love this place. It epitomizes old Philadelphia. Franky the Bartender wasn't working on Friday evening, but Franky the server was and he was also a fantastic personality. I have now eaten here three times and all of them were out of the park. Th crab bisques was incredible and the Filet Moda keeps me coming back. I don't think that I have ever experienced a steak quite like this one.12/21/2012 12:00:00 AM
