    This was our first time at Sbraga. Food was outstanding and the service was excellent. The bonus is parking right next door. The only negative was that the table set up had you packed in --- a little too tight. We had been to The Fat Ham (another Sbraga restaurant) a few months ago and the food was fantastic there, as well.

    My husband and I went to Spraga for our anniversary this year, and had a phenomenal experience. The service was impeccable, and timely. The took out order for the first three courses, and each came out shortly after we finished each course. The ambiance lends itself well to a romantic evening. Everything from the lighting, to the table setting, to the small green center piece, gave us a feeling of cool sophistication. The seasonal menus was delicious and superbly prepared. We will be returning to Sbraga!

    Second time dining there; the food is creative and well done. Only minor issues on the table (escargot lukewarm) and some dishes were amazing (spring lamb - very surprising). They kept the price reasonable; highly recommended.

    I was very impressed by the service, the presentation, and most importantly, the food. My date and I could enjoy our conversation without the tables on either side of us hearing us. I was afraid at first that the 4 course menu portions might not be enough food but I walked away full! the Foie Gras soup was perfection. We decided to "upgrade" our menu picks to the duck entrée. Definitely worth the $30 upcharge. The Pear Tarte Tatin was delicious. Definitely worth a visit. I look forward to going back! Only complaint, we were a late reservation and sat near the kitchen which began to break down after service while we were having coffee and dessert. Felt a little rushed.

    Awesome truffle popover and unexpectedly interesting foie gras soup. Modern/hip space. Highlight was probably blue crab bucatini - the sauce was so fresh and wonderful tasting. Ended with the cheese plate - the jams/accompaniments were great though I wasn't totally sold on the pairings.

    We had an outstanding dinner at Spraga this past Friday evening. A four course prix fixe extravaganza, that started with a taste of Fois Gras soup and ended with the most delectable tart I've ever had. I knew we were in for a fantastic experience when, who do we see eating at the bar, but no other than George Perrier! Each course was a small plate of mind blowing tastes. The chicken that was served as the main, had a wonderful aroma of cumin and rosemary. The taste has to be tried, there's no way to describe it in the right words. This is a restaurant that I will be going to at least once each season as the menu changes. Superb.

    There was not only not one flaw in my dining experience, but my girlfriend and I are convinced that it could not have been a better dining experience. There was zero room for improvement in any area. It is important to note that I am not just talking about a dish or the food. Everything. From decor to service and of course including the food, it was the best food experience we have ever had, and we both well traveled and well versed. We each made it a point to choose different options for each course (minus both selecting the tartar) and couldn't have been happier with each dish. We are looking forward to the season/menu change to go back and eat here again. This was quite literally the perfect dining experience.

    As GREAT as the food and the ambiance was(both of which were superior and unforgettable) the service is what will stand out and bring me back. Supremely well prepare, polite and attentive and genuinely friendly. Many other restaurants could take a lesson!! I would also point out that I was pleasantly surprised when the check arrived - not nearly as expensive as I expected particularly when you factor in the incredibly high level of the cooking and ingredients. Truly a superb meal - THANK YOU!!

    Overall disappointing given the reviews we read. Best were the popovers and foie gras soup at the beginning of the meal. Service was gracious and attentive. One of us had a pretty good meal (not great); the other, so-so to poor. If you like lamb don't order their lamb, which is prepared in a way that leaves is very dry and "stringy" (unless you like it that way). The server did offer to replace the lamb dish but that just seemed like a waste.

    My boyfriend and I made a last minute reservation when we arrived in from Boston. We got a great table over-looking the open kitchen, which is like dinner and a show all in one. We were celebrating my birthday and there was a birthday card from the staff on the table when we sat down. Our server was a little awkward and not that interactive with us. When we were ready to order wine, we spoke with the manager who kindly came over to our table with three different bottles that she thought would go well with our food choices. She really helped guide our dining experience. The food, itself, was incredible. Every bite was full of an array of flavors and textures and simply fantastic! We left with a birthday bag from the staff -- so kind!

    The four course tasting menu was everything our party of four could have wanted. It was well worth the price of $55 pp., I tried foods I normally would never have tried - but I suppose that is one of the purposes of a tasting menu. The service was spot-on. The only hiccup was when our waiter twice suggested a wine that was more than $20 plus over the price range I had given him. Once I told him I was not pleased about this, he did everything possible to get in my good graces again...and he did. Spraga is a wonderful place to take special friends or celebrate a special occasion.

    Sbraga truly provides a high level experience. The staff is professional and welcoming..no stiffness here... they exude casual confidence. The mixed drinks....sublime from the classics to the creatives. The prixe fixe menu makes it easy to not have to decide between two dishes...go ahead have all 4 courses. Wine pairings were expertly recommended. We ate the famous pop overs with triffle butter, soup, steak tartare, game hen, lamb and more..each a delight. Thank you! We had a blast.

    Kevin Sbraga, a Top Chef winner, is certainly that! The food was delicious, the service was great and my drink was yummy. Can't wait to try his other restaurant, The Fat Ham. Supposedly Sbraga's menu is a "tasting menu." My husband and I wondered what a full portion would be as we were pleasantly full by the time we had our desserts. Kudos to everyone at Sbraga!!

    Food- the fois gras soup, rabbit risotto and escargot gemelli pasta were excellent. The fluke was overpowered by the jalapeño; tartar was a little heavy, but still flavorful; and the lamb dish was bitter from the burned bits of meat. Service- although our service was friendly enough, the servers affect and manner of speaking would be better suited at the local diner. At a higher end restaurant, I expect the service to be more polished. The bussers attempted to remove our plates and wine glasses before we finished. The servers description of the food and wine were painful to listen to- inordinate number of adjectives but no real description. The chef warmly greeted the well-to-so couple next to us but ignored the rest of the patrons.

    Four courses plus amuse for less than $60, around $100 with the beverage pairing, what a value Creative seasonal food done with classic technique, never fails to impress. I really like Sbraga. The delicious tomato and peach salad, beautiful angeiloti with shrimp, striped bass with corn and hush puppies, and a delicious hazelnut semi feddo I had on my last visit were all exceptional, all executed well and served by a team who knows their job. Ben Fellicia runs the front of house with passion and care......you have to go!! Kevin Sbraga's flagship outlet has become one of Philadelphia's MUST visit dining destinations. A stones throw from the Kimmel Center its location is perfect for pre theatre.

    We went for dinner on Sat. 8/23/14 on a friend's recommendation and were not disappointed in the least. You're served fresh bread and the foie gras soup automatically and then choose the four courses you want from the menu. The cod was excellent (well, everything was) and our server was knowledgeable and attentive. We'll definitely return the next time we're in Philly. Yummy!

    This was our first time visiting Sbraga. We were not aware the menu is se tip as a small plate presentation. Once we got the low down from our very good waiter we chose from the 4 categories. What a great experience we encountered. We started with a soup not on the menu that was included in the service. All I can say is unbelievable. Moved to our 1st course, eggplant for my wife, beef carpaccio for me, 2nd course gimelli pasta with escargot for my wife, bucatini with crab for me, 3rd an unbelievable roasted cod for my wife, lamb for me, 4th dessert roasted peaches with fresh ice cream and Sbraga coffee cake with fresh ice cream for me. All wonderful start to end. Great restaurant with great energy definitely worth trying. We will go back.

    My gf and I went to Sbraga thinking we would receive an ultimate dining experience. We are foodies and try a new place every month. When we got there 15 minutes early they weren't ready to seat us. We were directed to the bar and ordered two "Sbraga punch". The bartender warned us it was sweet. He was right. I diluted it with water and chugged it. My gf struggled to finish hers. I ordered a beer afterwards. The bartender only charged us for one because he felt bad for us. We were seated 15 minutes late (not bad) and ordered the 4 course meal. The waitress was upset we had drinks from the bar. I felt bad and ordered another. Food felt pricey ($150 after tip) for what we got. We both felt it was average quality. Not iron chef winning quality.

    From the first moment we sat down through the fois gra soup and the fish and lamb entries to dessert and individual coffee presses, the food was spectacular, the service was attentive and non-obtrusive and the wine list was impressive. It exceeded our expectations and was the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion--our son's beginning of his freshman year at the University of Pennsylvania.
