Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse - Philadelphia
From the moment we walkedFrom the moment we walked into the restaurant, I knew that we would love it!. Service was great and food was delicious. The Pea Soup was extraordinary as was the rib eye and it was cooked just as I had requested. Highly recommend5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time with my Wife, MomGreat time with my Wife, Mom and Great Aunt. Very good eats!!! Theservers and the AGM were awesome.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMClass Reunion DinnerEverything went as expected except for the problem in getting the bill split properly. It took negotiaitions with three different people to have the bill allocated to each dinner or dining couple. I was told that the problem was due to company policy. If so, I would not be likely to bring a group back to your restaurant. We were a group of Wharton MBA alumni, many of whom are wealthy people who dine out a lot. They were all impacted by the billing issue in a negative way. While your manager did finally acceed to our request, it took a considerable amount of time and caused a great deal of irritation.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!This is one of my favorite places to dine in Philly. Great steaks, great salads, and the desserts are divine.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointsSmith & Wollensky consistently provides good food and service.

Our wait staff was fantastic and very attentive.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service/outstanding fooJames was a terrific guide for the evening. The tuna curbo was amazing. Raw tuna on a block of salt, allow it time to absorb the salt. It's fantastic. The bone in ribeye was perfectly matched with the Oscar sauce recommended by James. Outstanding service matched by outstanding food!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy sister and I were takenMy sister and I were taken care of very well.

My boyfriend and I went there for Valentine's day and we loved it! I had the gorgonzola filet mignon, he had the t-bone steak, we also ordered the truffle mac n' cheese and the creamed spinach. Everything was delicious and perfectly cooked! At the end, although we were extremely full, we decided to order the hazelnut creme brule which was out of this world! Pricey steakhouse, but definitely worth the money.
