Diner Reviews
  • "Chip Roman's latest restaurant is fantastic! Starting with a cocktail and snack recommendation from the personable and talented bartender at the welcoming bar, a table in the warm and friendly first floor dining room looking out onto 15th Street, to the food the 3 of us chose (with help from our server) and shared, and topped off with an interesting and easy to pair wine and beer list, it was an overall exceptional experience. We can't wait to go back with some of our foodie and wino friends. Great job Chip!"

  • "We are big fans of Blackfish and many restaurants on Passyunk and were curious about Treemont. Not very busy due to summer beach goers. Very sophistocated dishes like Will BYO and wonderful presentations. Liked the Cocoa Muffins. Appetizers werewell thought out from Wonderful albeit small Deviled eggs to very creative Carrot Gazpacho. Veal and Short ribs were plentiful and with wonderful accents. My wife who hates beets even loved the Charred Beat side dish. Chocolate cake dessert was small but yummy! Server was experienced and very knowledgeable regarding each ingredient. Overall a bit hit and must at least try restaurant. Great dining experience! Grade A/A-"

  • "Treemont based on review in Philadelphia magazine and they were right on target. It has only been open two and a half months and I'm sure it has a promising future. The food is upscale and innovative. I thoroughly found it awesome and from other comments was not alone."

  • "We tried some items reviewed in Phila. Magazine and we were not disappointed. Biscuits with sour cherry butter were outstanding. Short ribs over grits were tender and tasty. The gnudi melted in our mouths. My dessert was an excellent assortment of cookies and candy. from a candy shop belonging to the same owner as Blackfish and The Treemont. The staff was very pleasant and attentive."

  • "2d visit on July 11th even better than fist back shortly after the restaurant opened. We were relieved to see many more people than last time. The food is very good. Both innovative and reasonable priced. You also do not leave hungry. We shared the skate special that was nicely prepared and easy to eat. The chef provided pasta dish and biscuits were both very good. We recommend this restaurant if you have not tried it."

  • "With the high ceilings the noise level made talking to your dining companion almost impossible, although the place was half empty. Sounds also reverberated off the new tile walls. The food was expensive and both my companion and I left most of our meals. My fish appeared to be ground and then rolled. It was unattractive and unappetizing. The chicken was moist and flavorful, but also rolled. Very strange."

  • "Everything was amazing. The only thing we did not like was the sweet Thai chili sauce with the oysters - totally overpowering. So, we asked for lemon wedges instead. Really yummy food, highly recommended."

  • "I like Treemont. Friendly knowledgable service and good quality food. Also love the indoor-outdoor feel of the lower level dining room. We were sat upstairs and requested to be moved downstairs ( no problem;'it was pretty dead). My only complaint is portion size. We shared the fish du jour for 2, but tile fish on the bone, with a lot of bone and a spoonful of quinoa was not much to share. I easily could have eaten the whole thing myself, but not at $40. Our other dining partner ordered the salmon entree for 1, and it was more substantial than our dinner for 2 and looked amazing. The starters too are described as dishes to be shared, but hard to share soup (yummy carrot gazpacho) and my lovely garden fresh salad was perfect for just me."

  • "I really enjoyed the look and feel of the Treemont. The wine list includes several great options including a Barbara D'Asti which is one of my favorites. The menu was also quite strong with several delicious sounding choices. We started with the chickpea fritters. The sauce was nice but overall I found the actual fritters to be fairly mediocre. For my entree, I opted for the Parisian Gnocchi. Again, I felt it was good not great. I did try my wife's chicken dish which was nice. For dessert, I tried the caramels. I appreciated the offering of small chocolates & caramels along with larger desserts. Overall I would score it 3.5/5. It was a nice place with great service but I think there are several better spots for the price in the area."

  • "We dined pre-theater early on a Saturday evening; it was pretty quiet. The restaurant is one block away from the Academy. Kudos to the front of house; extremely friendly, cordial, accommodating and all around nice. Our server, Gabrielle, was also very helpful and did a fine job guiding us to our menu selections. Overall, every item we chose was good but nothing wowed. Nice selection of specialty cocktails and wines by the glass were okay. The cobia and tuna were good appy choices and the highlight was the skate which was the fish du jour and a "bargain" at $40 shared for two. With dessert we didn't leave hungry but maybe could have squeezed in a side. The rhubarb was very tasty and unique. Good coffee. Tradestone caramel = yum!"

  • "We ate at The Treemont on a Friday night at 8:00. The menu is small to begin with and they were out of 3 main course items, which is obviously some poor planning on the part of the restaurant. The food was very tasty and portion sizes while not large, were adequate."

  • "This is a cozy neighborhood resturant with the food of a polished chef. We are lucky to have this kind of resturant in the neighborhood. It is also well suited for people coming to Academy or Kimmel Center as well as those who want to stop in for a drink. Very pleased "

  • "This is a beautiful space! Service was great and the food was really tasty and not to mention really pleasing to the eye. There are not that many places like this is in Philly, so savor it! I would recommend the chickpea fritters and clam ceviche. Try the almond cake for one of the best desserts I've had in town! The only problem was one of our fish dishes was completely overcooked (huge mistake for a place like this). This is not for people that just like a nice piece of steak and potatoes. Portions are quite small so you're paying for presentation and fresh/unique ingredients. Drink list is average, though. "

  • "This is in my building, so of course I want it to improve, but my parents and I were disappointed. Space is very well-designed. Service was awkward and involved odd interruptions--also got drinks from another table. The entree portions were small. Fish of the day must be ordered for two and wasn't terribly exciting. Appetizer ceviche and oysters were tasty and nicely presented. "

  • "I chose to come here for a first time visit . The reviews were all very positive. My thoughts are it is pretty setting, but a little expensive considering they have very small entree portions and smaller appetizers. The wine was good, I chose malbec by the glass, but $14 for a glass is on the higher end . The salmon was very tasty, and well prepared, with a delicious 'sauce', but I had to ask for a spoon to use so that I could actually eat the sauce and again the portion was very small for the price. The chicken was well prepared but lacked seasoning and was nothing special. I probably will not return as the noise level was very high and I do prefer hearing the person with whom I am dining "

  • "Dined with friends last evening and had incredible food as well as attentive and well paced service. We enjoyed all the dishes we tried. It's hard to choose a favorite but we'd recommend the perfectly prepared Day Boat Scallops, the delicately seasoned Cherrystone Clam Ceviche and the tender and delicious Beef Short Rib. The recommended Spanish wine was a perfect complement. Can't wait to return!"

  • "Had only been open for a couple of weeks when the two of us went for a birthday celebration. Menu is somewhat limited, and flavor combinations were adventurous, but we expected that, having looked at the menu beforehand. Had a seaweed salad appetizer (a special) that I wouldn't recommend - mixed too many flavors. Other appetizers (clam ceviche; turnip soup) were good but portion size of ceviche was small We had the fish for two (dorad). It was excellent, but portion size much too small for two people. Dessert (rhubarb/strawberry) was unusual - and grea!. All desserts need better descriptions in menu. Felt it was very overpriced given portion sizes. On the other hand, the service was excellent, and the ambiance is very nice. "

  • "The portions here are very small and you might think you going to leave hungry. That didn't happen to us but we don't eat a lot at one time anyway. We had chicken and short ribs. Both were wonderful but almost no carbos or veggies! Coconut mouse with fresh fruit was terrific and coffee very good. "

  • "We had dinner before a Saturday concert -the location is great for shows and concerts. The food was very special and reminded us of another favorite restaurant Mica. The service was friendly yet professional and attentive. This was our first time at Treemont but we'll be back. We recommended the restaurant to our son and his wife and they liked it very much for the same reasons."

  • "I had two appetizers (small plates), and I especially liked the scallops. I put the amazing charred beets on the rest of my salad, as I found it a bit dull. It needed more pineapple. My husband had the escargot and the chicken, which he told me were excellent. Lots of French wines by the glass, which are my favorite. Don't tell anyone in California, Oregon and Washington states that I said that. We sat at a long bar facing the windows. It was fine, but the staff needs to stand between the couple, and speak slowly. There are a few tables on the first floor, but most tables are on the second level, where one needs to take steep steps to get there. If you have anyone elderly in your dining party, I'd ask for a table on the first floor."

  • "the bar and the décor are great! some of the food is very good (the scallops were huge and perfectly cooked), some is OK (the cobia appetizer was boring, the fish for two was good but the crispy skin became soggy) and some was bad (the kale that accompanied the fish could be chewed all day without effect, the sunchokes tasted mainly of salt). My glass of red wine was served at about 80 F. Staff was friendly and helpful."

  • "The Treemont is steps from my home, so I really want it to be great. I'm writing this review for helpful purposes. The service couldn't be better, and the atmosphere is perfect. The first time I dined there, everything was very good (my husband and I had the chicken). However, on my second visit, the chickpea fritters were soggy (they were wonderfully crisp the first time I had them there), and the tilefish was so salty that my friend and I couldn't eat it. These are easy fixes, and I would try the restaurant again and recommend it if it is better."
