    I am new to Philadelphia and happened to stumble upon Treemont by chance, and we got lucky. I took my girlfriend here on Saturday night and everything about the place was amazing. The food, the service and environment were perfect right down to the little touches. Well done, we will be back.

    ... no really, I mean it. I usually don't bother with chicken dishes at nice restaurants, seems a waste, but once our waitress finished describing the dish (chicken breast roulade cooked sous vide then flash fried in skin, dark meat terrine with pumpernickel bread crumbs, butternut squash, heirloom cauliflower... oh my!), both my dining companion and I had to order it - it was as delish as the description! Service was good and fast - a great spot for a pre-Orchestra dinner!

    High ceilings with little sound absorption - noisy due to loud 4 man group at next table even though we were the only two parties in the restaurant Food was inventive but each dish had a few too many moving parts. The celery root soup was a little too sweet. The dorade had good flavor but was too dry on the edges. The grilled beets were tasty but were served cold and that was not indicated on the menu - this was surprising to me and I would not have ordered the beets had I known.

    This restaurant has a limited menu but the food is very good. I had the Dorade fish and it was outstanding. My husband had the short rib and it was very good. Overall this is a place to try. The service was excellent! We were celebrating my daughter's birthday but the dessert that they brought with the candle was not complimentary, it was $10 for a piece of cake. Most places have a complimentary dessert when you celebrate a birthday. That was disappointing. I ask if you could bring a cake and they said they will charge $4 per person to plate it!!! I think its important to do some special treats like other restaurants do for a birthday and don't get charge for it.

    This was my second visit to The Treemont and it did not disappoint. The food was deliciously prepared and beautifully presented and the wine list provide a balanced range of choices for every palate. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. It was not terribly crowded either time I dined at the restaurant which some have speculated is due to its location near a construction site. Given its proximity to the theatre and concert venues, and the wonderful dining experience, it is well worth overlooking the construction site to experience this gem.

    I really didn't think The Treemont could be as bad as the reviews. Sorry to say it was. When our first courses arrived and the salad resembled a garnish I just about died. It was tiny and just plain odd. As far as placement- the greens were even located on the corner of a larger plate as if anticipating something else in the center. The entire menu needs to be overhauled- over thought & not appetizing. The wine pours were also anemic. Sorry- really love Blackfish...

    The food and service at Treemont are why dining out can be adventuresome and memorable. Variations on classic cuisine and presentation added energy to the experience. The only improvement only need be a closer balance between expense and value.

    The service was excellent and the food was superior. We did have a little bit longer of a wait for our main course but the staff was courteous, attentive and apologetic during the delay. The seating unlike most restaurants in Philly gave plenty of room to have a quieter conversation and a nice date night.

    Our local food critic needs some competition. In reading his recent review of this lovely gem on 15th Street, I would have been hesitant about going there. I have dined 3 times in the last 2 wks and love it. The creative design of a small space is one of the smartest uses of the challenging vertical space that I have ever seen, and the staff master it with grace, running food to the loft. Each area of dining has a unique feel, and that is wonderful. The food is outstanding! I have had the mushrooms, beets, tuna, cobia ceviche, short rib, and Amish chicken. All were delicious and perfectly prepared and artfully presented. The staff is friendly and attentive. I own 3 other restaurants in the city and this is my new favorite, A GREAT FIND!

    Nice dishes. Two little failures. The bread with the terrine was too soft to spread the hard terrine on. The pretzel roll was too strongly flavored for a couple of the cheeses and overpowered them.

    We had an enjoyable evening at the Treemont. The food was very flavorful and I definitely would go again. One complaint that I have was the small amount of meat that was served for the lamb dish. I had two small chunks of lamb that were literally each about half of the size of a chicken nugget. My fellow diners had the short ribs and received generous portions so I do not know what the problem was with the lamb.

    Had a great dinner. Every dish was well thought out. We had been to Ela and wanted to try Treemont. The cuisine is very forward-thinking and the flavors are very complex. My only complaint was that portion-wise appeared a little uneven, at least when it comes to the small plates. I ordered the squid dish, which was plated beautifully, but was much more bite-size than the escargots that my husband ordered. Regardless, very good food, and we would go back.

    My companion called to ask about gluten-free options and the hostess noted it on our reservation. When we were seated, the waiter proactively went over the GF options with us, which I think was an awesome piece of customer service! Outstanding! The food was really imaginative and amazing, nice wine list and cocktail options.

    My wife and I had a great time dining at The Treemont. What a treat! Both small plates we shared were very tasty - chick pea fritters and charred squid. My wife had the lamb saddle as an entree, which she really enjoyed and I had the best salmon I've ever eaten. The presentation on the plates was in itself a treat - works of art! We had excellent service by the entire staff and we will be back!

    Food was different and very well prepared. Great dining experience as not the kind of food you make at home. Could do with a little less of the cream in a couple of dishes as they were very rich. Only real complaint is the same as at sister restaurant Ela. Drinks are very expensive and portions are very skimpy. Next time, I will pre-game!
