    I was not impressed at all with Bank & Bourbon. This will be the last time I attend this establishment for dinner. With restaurant week going on in Philadelphia, this was a poor choice. I had visited a number of other restaurants over the past 2 weeks and was very pleased with my dining experience but this site was at the bottom of the list.

    Tried this restaurant during Restaurant Week. Food was excellent and prepared perfectly. Husband is very picky and he loved the food. Jasmine was our server - very friendly and prompt.

    Went during lunch Philadelphia restaurant week. The experience was Excellent. It allowed us to sample the cuisine. The variety of the menu allowed us to choose what one would like. For instance for entrees there was a fish, meat and chicken. We chose chicken and meat. Both were excellent. Meat was cooked to specification. Had a wonderful experience and will return.

    Great steak, I had the NY strip it was fabulous,. A delightful char on the surface, but still medium rare. It was serve sliced which at first put me off but it turned out that I liked it. I was one of the best steaks I have had. It was served with a small salad which I thought was odd. I ordered the mushrooms as a side they were good. For dessert I had the ice cream sandwich it was really good. The coffee was great. I had a cocktail that was great and not over priced. Overall I can't wait to go back.

    Perhaps I was there on an off night, but everything--everything--was bland and underseasoned and the pork chop was cooked to the point of being tough and dry. The service was excellent and the oysters and cocktails were very good.

    We shared 3 appetizers and each got a salad. The tuna tartar was delicious, the meatballs and linguini were just ok. The beet salad was fabulous! Portions are small but we were full. Overall a nice evening out, but I will probably try other restaurants before returning.

    Previously dined here a couple of months back on Christmas Eve and it was good. Tonight it was a train wreck. We had to wait well past our reservation time to be seated. I had to ask the waiter to speak up and not mumble. It was not made clear that the only menu was for Valentines day, which was the day prior. Probably the best thing we ordered was the cheese board. $15 for 3 cold fried oysters does not cut it. The pear salad was bizarre. My filet mignon was dry and crusty. I had to remind the waiter to bring out the fries. Our waiter was clueless. Won't be going back.

    We had an 8:15pm reservation and were seated 30 minutes late. The service was very slow and the waiter was snippy and did the least amount of work possible. The food took forever despite the menu being prefix. The only saving grace was that the drinks at the bar while waiting were great!

    Went for Valentine’s Day dinner and the 2+ hour experience fell short in every category. The server complained all night he had too many tables to give us the attention needed, the ambiance was terrible, zero atmosphere, and when the food finally did come out it was cold and bland. Absolutely terrible from start to finish.

    The food, drinks and ambience was incredible!!! Came here for Valentine’s Day just before the pandemic and I still remember the filet I got. They also had a beautiful Valentine’s Day special that was a brownie with a pink fancy scoop of ice cream. We got the feeling that the waiter was trying to rush us out of there, so our experience was tainted just a little by that. We would go back again for sure!
