Diner Reviews
  • "Dining at Sbraga was one of our most memorable dining experiences, ever. Attractive décor, open kitchen, creative flavor and texture combinations, welcoming staff. We will return."

  • "Our meal at Sbraga was a memorable foodie night out. Starting with great martinis and rolling right into the wonderful popovers and foie gras soup. My wife and I selected very different tasting menus with the exception of the beef tartar. This was an incredibly rich and fantastic presentation to begin. Our next courses of crab bucatini and risotto with rabbit were cooked perfectly. The main entrees of sea bass and the lamb were excellent. The desserts were also great. We also saw several cheese plates passing by that looked great as well. The restaurant also provided my wife with a few wrapped biscotti and the menu signed by the staff for her birthday. I would highly recommend this spot for those with flavorful palettes."

  • "We had high expectations for this Top Chef restaurant and we weren't disappointed. I don't eat foie gras but the foie gras soup with popover at the start was incredible! Presentation and quality of food was wonderful. Only minor disappointment was dessert course - coffee cake wasn't "special" and the cheeses on cheese plate weren't either. But definitely a not to be missed experience."

  • "The food, especially the main course dishes, was very salty"

  • "I surprised my wife to Sbraga for her 30th birthday and she loved it. It was exactly what she wanted. The food was amazing. She said it was the best meal she's had ever, and the server was great and very knowledgable."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Service was good and the atmosphere was delightful. I loved the five-course options and my recommendations the Game Hen, Gruyere Popover (I love bread), and the Foie Gras Soup. Thanks Sbraga for helping me celebrate my birthday. I'll see you soon!"

  • "I've lived here most of my life and I had probably the best meal in Philadelphia at sbraga. Excellent food and drinks."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Imaginative food cooked to perfection. Tight seating and noise level -- with odd music selection blaring overhead -- might suggest this is a neighborhood hangout, but every dish our table ordered was cooked to perfection, beautiful to gaze upon, tantalized, and thrilled our culinary senses."

  • "I ended up taking my wife here because I looked up Top Chef restaurants (with their web app) and realized the restaurant was that close (I live in the Lehigh Valley). The menu is a 4 course, everything we had was delicious everything different except the third course we shared the up priced dry aged pork for 2. Best food experience we've had since Craft and less expensive."

  • "The menu and overall dining experience at Sbraga was absolutely wonderful. Loved the Prix Fixe menu - it allows you to sample a bit of everything and the wine pairings were perfect. Love, love, love their signature dish - fois gras soup and gruyere popovers. Amazing! Many of the items had a slight bit of heat, which was superbly executed and not too much to make the dish "hot", just flavorful. Will definitely return when visiting Philadelphia in the future."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "I've been to many top restaurants. The food here is just ridiculously good. Every course was amazing. I had the popover, foie gras soup, eggplant, rabbit risotto, brook trout and the peach dessert. Can't wait to go back."

  • "Delicious food, and they tried to be very accommodating to my dietary concerns (no gluten or dairy). However, the next day I exhibited my classic symptoms of exposure, so I was exposed to something. I would say this is a fabulous restaurant, but if you have food allergies/sensitivities that go beyond something like nuts or shellfish, be wary."

  • "This place never disappoints! We had a great time at the bar with our superb mixologist, Jesse, on a busy Friday night. My friend and I shared an array of small plates that were creative and superbly executed, and timed perfectly despite the crush. Great experience!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "It must be said that you will enjoy the food if you are not looking for the ordinary. You have to have adventurist taste buds.Along with $$$. The four course was wonderful. I must still say Vanilla ice cream as a substitute for a flavored ice cream. If you drink be prepared for a large bill to pay. The atmosphere great, rest rooms clean and unisex. Wait staff helpful and friendly. Also this is portion size not over stuffed plate."

  • "This was my first visit to Sbraga and it was outstanding. My best friend and I travelled all the way from DE to spend a special night. We let our server pick each item on the four course tasting menu. We also let the server select the wines from the added beverage supplement. Each course brought very intense and complex flavors and the wines complemented and enhanced the foods. Kevin Sbraga can really cook. Sbraga restaurant is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "An amazing meal from start to finish. The flavor, quantity, and pace at which each course was delivered was outstanding. Service was superb, especially from our server Oswaldo. Stand out dishes were the trout, lamb, bucatini, and eggplant terrine. Overall, a perfect dining experience."

  • "From the moment we walked in the door I knew our experience at Sbraga would be special. We were there to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday, and he was presented with a card signed by Chef Sbraga when we sat down. Chef was on the line the entire night, preparing orders himself, which was surprising to us- we figured a celebrity chef wouldn't actually be preparing food. The food itself was amazing- the portions were perfect and everything was excellently prepared. They were very accommodating of my gluten-free requests (I have celiacs) and never once made me feel like I was being a pain. The service was impeccable- our server Dawn was friendly, knowledgable, and her attention to detail was amazing. We will be recommending Sbraga to everyone."

  • "delicious food overall. Amuse bouche was fantastic (fois gras soup)--like velvet! Some dishes were a bit on the salty side. tables very close, felt a bit like a group dining experience. Could not get up from table to use restroom without needing to move table. Staff was extremely pleasand but service was slow. Took a good 20 mins to get drink order placed. Had to ask for order to be placed."

  • "We celebrated our anniversary at Sbraga, The menu was comprised of delicious, unusual courses. We loved each bite! My only complaint was the tight spacing of the tables. At one point, the server for the next table kept positioning himself between our tables. His bending over definitely affected our space."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We enjoyed our meal at Sbraga. Our waiter was a professional who knew the menus, wine and choices. We had a Prixe Fixe meal of four courses. The first three courses were good. We got to sample foods that were prepared well and excited the palate. Our only disappointment was dessert. The choices sounded exciting but didn't live up to the rest of the menu. Meals move fast at Sbraga and we were out before we knew it. A little time to rest between courses would have been appreciated."

  • "Great special occasion restaurant. Food, service and ambience were wonderful."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Beginning with the foix gras soup, the first four courses were delicious. Flavors were complex and well conceived. Ingredients were fresh and presented expertly. I would not recommend the dessert selection however as it was unimpressive to dessert lovers. Since the menu changes only seasonally, this is not a place to go frequently as it could become mundane eating the same dishes."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "My first visit to Sbraga was with friends on a busy Sat. night and the food and service was excellent. Returned for a business dinner during a quieter weekday and received excellent service and enjoyed an inventive menu featuring in-season early summer ingredients. I would recommend Sbraga to anyone thinking about dining there."

  • "Sbraga never disappoints. Service is always above par and the execution of the menu items is always excellent. Based on a price/value perspective it's got to be one of the best establishments in the Tri- state area."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "I went here with my wife for our anniversary. We got the tasting menu with wine pairings. The foie gras soup was included and was excellent. 4 out of the 8 courses we had (4 each) were very good, though not excellent, and the other two (eggplant terrine and gemelli) were just ok. The wine pairings went well with each course. For a tasting menu, we thought the price was very good, but we've had better tasting menus, and it was just a little too much food. The waiters were a bit over-attentive, and served our next course as soon as we were done with the one before. The ambiance was nice, and we enjoyed our dinner overall."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Several tasty items (The popovers, the strawberry shortcake and the eggplant marmalade on the fish) but also many inconsistent or boring items. And the lamb entree was almost too salty to eat. I have had much better meals and less famous philly spots"

  • "On my third trip to Sbraga, food continues to delight. Inventive combinations make the food sparkle-- for example, I have rediscovered how bright and sweet fava beans can be. The courses are also designed so that, no matter what you pick, your menu will be cohesive and complementary. The fois gras soup starter was both rich and a little sweet, and also incredibly smooth.. It may be the best fois gras preparation I ever enjoyed-- and I indulge whenever I have the chance. Service however, is not quite perfect. The team service model resulted in constant interruption of the meal, and I felt rushed as servers SEVERAL TIMES attempted to remove dishes I was still eating-- as if I needed to hurry out so they could seat another party. PLEASE fix!"

  • "We sat at the Chefs' Bar and had a great time. The line cooks were very nice and answered questions about the service. We had a complimentary amuse bouche AND appetizer - delicious steak tartare in a pot! Our meal was excellent, and Chef Sbraga came over to chat with us. There was a card waiting at our spot, wishing me a happy birthday. All in all, a wonderful evening and it is our new favorite place!"

  • "Wonderful meal, but if you only like items you recognize, you'll have a problem here. Great for foodies tho - really great selection of unique preparations. Fix Price menu - four courses $55. Moderate sized portions, so you're not stuffed when you leave. A bit crowded and noisy, so I wouldn't make this a romantic stop. Fun atmosphere and staff."
