Diner Reviews
  • "Another lovely evening at Sips. It was too hot to cook, so we let Sips make dinner, and our Main Line foodie guests were suitably impressed."

  • "It supposed to be a mid-to-high end French restaurant, however, it turned out to be like a "bar"."

  • "My husband and I tried this restaurant because of Groupon I found, and it's will definitely be added to our list of favorites! The restaurant is nicely decorated - great ambiance. We ordered the cheese platter as an appetizer - delicious cheeses included a smooth cheddar, smoked gouda and bleu cheese, with toast points, gherkins, grapes and fig marmalade. My husband had the ribeye steak special and I had the soft shell crab special...both wonderful dishes. And we had a terrific waiter, Jeffrey, who made the meal that much more enjoyable. Highly recommend this restaurant - go out of your way, if you have to."

  • "We often return to Sips for a pleasant, low-key dinner. The dining room is now air-conditioned, so dinner in 90F weather is comfortable inside or out. We definitely consider it a "neighborhood gem.""

  • "Have eaten dinner here many times and the food has always been top notch. Very disappointed in the brunch menu. I am used to getting multiple choices for brunch and this menu only allowed you to order 1 main course. Also the majority of the choices had an up charge. We ended up ordering omelets from the menu which were sooo small as well as the potatoes served were to raw to eat.. It also took about 5 minutes once we were seated for anyone to come over and take a drink order. Will not be having brunch here again!"

  • "I've had brunch and dinner at Sips and have been very happy each time. The ambiance is perfect--rustic and charming and the food is well-prepared, fresh, and delicious. Portion size is perfect."

  • "The four of us enjoyed our meals, especially the beef tournedos. They gave you a country club pour on the drinks. They did not have Bluecoat gin but have promised to have it the next time. We were planning to enjoy the outside dining but the weather was too windy and chilly so we sat in the bar. A bit noisy but after all, it is a bar. I would go back and hope to have good weather to enjoy the beautiful setting outside."

  • "An hour from Philadelphia and in a nice little coming-back to life town, the place was easy to find and easy to enjoy. The food was creative without needing a translation card to figure out. The portions could have been bigger, though some dishes were large portions; others small. Easy to rectify: put more potatoes/veggies on the smaller ones to make them more filling. Nice sauces; well executed dishes without being artwork. Fresh fish in the fish dishes. The desserts, particularly the profiteroles, were superb."

  • "We recently tried Sips Bistro and were not impressed on our initial visit. Our server was not familiar with the menu, but did check on questions and came back with answers. Our daughter is a vegetarian, and there were not a lot of choices. The server assisted her with fish choices, however other restaurants have been creative to offer some additional options. We sat outside which was nice, however there was music playing from a nearby apartment that was competing with the restaurant's background music. We ordered an appetizer version of mussels and an entree version with a side of fries (never saw this before) arrived. We asked the server...no apparent adjustment was made, and never received an itemized bill, just the slip with the total."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Started off with the mussels and frites which were outstanding. Also asked for the vegetable crepe entree as an appetizer which was also great. We ordered the Sea Bass which was a nice sized fillet and wonderfully prepared and tasting. Also tried the sole which was on the small side with 3 small "swirls" of sole, but the taste was outstanding. Finished off with tartufo for dessert. Three perfectly crispy shells stuffed with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with chocolate. I have never had these prepared as well."

  • "This is a chic small restaurant with outdoor sitting. It has a bar. But on Sunday it is BYOB. We went there on aSunday evening . It was nice and quiet. I ordered the duck. It was crispy outside and flavorful inside. It would be perfect if it was a little bit more juicy. The serving is of good portion. We did not have dessert because there was no room. The server was very pleasant. We will certainly return in the near future. "

  • "I had eaten here one other time and had an excellent meal. On this occasion, the food was not up to the same standards. It was a day after a holiday weekend, perhaps a different chef was in the kitchen. The food lacked visual appeal. It did not appear to be as fresh as expected. The Eggplant Ratatouille was not bright in color and was very mushy. The service was very good. I am going to try another visit and am hopeful my experience will be better. "

  • "Outdoor dining on the patio is great. The service was quite slow (Memorial Day Sunday), but friendly and effective. 2 young children were able to roam a bit and that was a big plus. "

  • "A strange mix of reasonable and expensive menu items. French pub?"

  • "Surprise reservation made by my husband from a Groupon offering for a 1st time visit. Everything was delightful -- food, ambiance, service. And, great jazz playing in the background. Shared the Thai-Curry Mussels, which were wonderful, as was the special lamb entree. We will definitely return & would like to try their jazz brunch on Sundays. "

  • "We had brunch here on Mother's Day; what a treat! The food and drinks were great and the prices very reasonable. The best part was whiling away the afternoon sipping Bellinis and not feeling rushed. We will be back!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We have been to Sips a couple of times. The food was very food and there was a good variety. The ambiance is nice as well. Most of the tables for 2 are actually too small for our liking. The decor is very nice but watch out for bench seating. The bench is too high for the height of the table making it very uncomfortable. It would be fine for casual cocktails but for a full meal I would definitely ask for a different seat."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Usually love everything about this place. This trip, we were not overly impressed wit the Sole we ordered. However, we will be back. We have has many past great dining expereiences here and everything else about this past trip was great. Service is always top notch."

  • "If you want a fine dinner experience, this is an excellent spot. On my last visit I had the duck, which was incredibly succulent, and before that, the filet mignon, which melts in the mouth. Stay for dessert, obviously -- my wife and I can wolf down creme brulee like it's nothing. Also recommended for cocktail enthusiasts -- the vesper martini, a 007 favorite. "

  • "We've dined at Sips 3 times now and each visit has been outstanding. The wait staff is friendly and attentive, the food is always perfect and the ambience is great for conversation and relaxation (we tend to dine early). "
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "We wanted to try Sipps because we like to support Phoenixville business. We were seated promptly but at a table where one side was a chair and the other was a padded bench with no back support except for large pillows - not comfortable for dining. The cheese plate and escargot were uninspiring and expensive. We ordered duck and Branzino, both of which were acceptable but not great. Dessert was profiteroles. Too large and the chocolate sauce tasted like Hershey's. All in all it was just OK, although our server was terrific. We would probably return in the summer to sit outside."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We found the food excellent and the atmosphere very relaxing. The service staff was attentive and friendly. Great for special occasions and the occasional "date night". Highly recommend! We will be returning."

  • "We went there on a Saturday night. Our waiter Jeffery was great. Food was so delicious can not wait to go back when the weather is warm to sit outside. This is a must try!!! "

  • "We were absolutely blown away! I must say how warm and charming our server Jeffrey was. Knowledgeable and complimentarty without being stuffy or overbearing, a perfect bistro server blended with fine dining service. We ate the calamari (a revelation!) and the country pate to start. If you even like pate a little, you must try it. The Lyonnaise salad was an unexpected explosion of bold flavors. I would come back just for that salad alone. Frisee with warm bacon, potatoes and green beans and topped with a poached egg! Our entrees were sublime. My husband had to have Sole Meuniere and it was terrific. My dinner was a chilean sea bass special, with sauteed ramps and delightful soy simmered mushrooms. Great job Chef Petrus! Love Love Love! "

  • "We brought our 18 year old friend here for her birthday. Her first experience of fine dining in a casual atmosphere. We enjoyed frog legs, escargot, and an amazing filet mignon that made her want to return for more. The escargot is the best around, drenched in garlic butter, and tender and sweet yet still savory. Duck confit never disappoints with an amazing blend of herbs that propels it into the beyond delicious category. We love the wine selections here. They always seem to find wines that we love. We enjoy their selection of tawny ports. The servers are all very professional and helpful.Items not to miss include mussels, duck, truffle mac & cheese, and anything on the dessert menu as well. I'm in love with Boeuf Bourguignon!"

  • "With Easter festivities coming, we just needed a nice, subdued meal and SIPS made that happen for us..Plus, the Sunday only, BYO made it very easy for us to enjoy..Her house salad and Filet Mignon were exceptional..My crab cake appetizer was not as much; surprised that there was no lump in the mix and a tad too much green pepper for me..also my Sea Bass, although it was quite fresh, it did not have as much flavor as I preferred and was a bit dry {I used her l/o Bearnaise Sauce to help it along}...But regardless, it was all-in-all a very nice meal and I'm sure we will return ~"

  • "We ordered 4 entrees no soup, salad or appetizers. Each meal was superb from the presentation to the taste. The red wines were superb and the service was impeccable. It was a busy Saturday night and there was not a gliche during our dinner. Highly recommend Sips for delicious French cuisine at a reasonable American price!"

  • "The waitress was great; attentive, funny, and great menu advise. The tables were small but manageable. My wife had a peach Bellini which she loved. The wine and drink list seemed reasonable and well rounded. For aps we had the calamari and onion soup. The calamari was a bit different from the standard and really good. For an entre my wife had the goat cheese salad and crab cake. She loved her salad and the crab cake was about the size of 3 stacked hockey pucks. Full of flavor, moist, and with tons of crabs. I had the duck confit and truffle Mac and cheese. The duck was the best I ever had. Crisp flavorful skin and juicy tender meat. The Mac was definitely a delicious adultered Mac and cheese. Absolutely wonderful!!"

  • "By their website & menu choices I was expecting over the top dishes. I enjoyed the appetizer cheese plate the most. My fish was so bland and overpriced for the portion size. The menu items were pricey, I guess the their fancy French titles justified their high prices. I don't mind paying but if you are charging high prices, at least put out a dish crazy good, not just so so."

  • "This restaurant work great in the mix of the other Phoenixville restaurants. It has it's own flair. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic. It was a cold evening but looks like the outdoor patio area could be a lot of fun. The food was very good and service excellent. Of course it was a Monday evening and there were only a few other patrons in the restaurant. The bartender/waiter was very nice and gave great wine recommendations. Excellent service. Happy hour specials are great! I will definitely go there again!"
