First time we came the food was not warm, seemed like they left it out too long, no biggie. I was attending a conference and the location is convenient so I went again the second time. A LIVE TINY BABY CRAB STILL MOVING fell out of my oysters. So... not going back for a third time.

GREAT BAR AND MIXED DRINKS. TUNA TARTARE WAS EXCELLENT, WHOLE FISH OF THE DAY WAS OKAY, BUT NOT EXCEPTIONAL. DESSERTS WERE OUTSTANDING. HUGE BOURBON MENU, PLENTY TO CHOOSE FROM.

Went for a Sunday brunch with 2 friends. The food was what you would expect from a brunch buffet. Nothing is individually a 10/10 but altogether they offer a good variety in fairly high quality. The problem is the price. $35 is simply too much for what you get. You can get the same quality brunch for cheaper elsewhere. Either way, the service was excellent and the ambience is nice. Worth a try!

Overall food and service were very good. I would have, however, preferred a seat somewhere other than right by the big window that faces the annoying sign across the street. I kept thinking someone was playing with the restaurant lights and it was the annoying sign. Now if you're into people watching, plenty of entertainment with the folks walking by on Market Street.

I didn't have high expectations because of mixed reviews from friends. The service was great, the food was good, and the environment was loud (music mixed with talking). I would go again, maybe.

Came for restaurant week and wasn’t very impressed with the food. The staff was very friendly. The serve was a little slow and it was not very crowded. I will maybe try it again at a later date.

It was loud!!! I couldn’t have a normal conversation. Service was slow. We waited 20 mins for drinks and 45 mins for our appetizers.

And the price to food value wasn’t worth it.

We dined at Bank & Bourbon when in town for a convention. The location couldn’t have been more convenient since we stayed at the Loews Hotel. The Restaurant Week menu was a great value and we enjoyed the drink variety. Our only minor criticism was that the service was somewhat slow (but friendly).

The food was excellant, the service was not. I don' t know if they were short staffed, but the wait upon being seated till our waiter approced us was about 15 minutes. After taking our drink order they did not arrive for another 15 minutes. We placed our order after waiting another few minutes and when the entrees arrived they brought 3 and we had to ask when the 4th was coming to which we were told they could only carry 3 at time. Fine but then go and get the last one instead of delivering other tables. It is a shame that this was our experience bacause the food was excellent, however they really need to work on the attitude of the wait staff and the hosts.

I had the Grilled Octopus as a starter. The octopus was delicious, but I only got about 4 small pieces while the small plate was full of potatoes and onions. Portion was disappointing for $13. My partner ordered the Smoked Kielbasa for his starter. He said the same thing "...good kielbasa, but they cold have given a larger slice for the price...". We both ordered the 8 oz. Filet Mignon. Both were juicy and tender. The issue we had, again, was the lack of accompaniments with the filet. For $38 per order, I only got about 5 roasted carrots and a ton of maitake mushrooms (which I did not like at all). My partner got 1 roasted carrot and a ton of maitake mushrooms. So, while the food was delicious and the service was very good, Bank & Bourbon does not give the diner large enough starter portions or accompaniments with their entrees.

Everything from the food, service , ambiance and location is great. We had a wonderful experience for our anniversary. Maybe they can do something in the future to acknowledge anniversaries or birthdays that would put them ober the top.

Went for restaurant week. Overall, good food with generally good service, some people were great, others were okay. I would go back again, if convenient. I appreciated the discount in valet parking for dining.

It’s pretty regular pub food. Don’t expect anything special and expect to pay a lot for what you get - overall a nice meal, just not worth what it cost.

Main courses were good, perhaps a little under seasoned. We had a great bottle of wine. Ambiance is lacking and we had an overhead light that continually blinked. Restaurant convenient from the convention center

The brunch spread was fantastic. The prime rib was particularly tasty with fresh blue cheese and horseradish sauce. We will definitely visit again soon.

Our first experience when we traveled here a couple of years ago was fantastic. Our second, not so much. Our order was so very late, steak was lukewarm and had clearly been sitting for a bit. The salad was bitter and bland. Water ran out before it was refilled, and by then, we were leaving. Will probably visit elsewhere next time we are in Philadelphia.

Presentation of the food was not great, too much of it on the plate, which made it look overwhelming. One of us had the trout and one of us had pork chops both of us had that same experience.

We work in the Market East neighborhood, and Bank & Bourbon has become one of our favorite local restaurants. Most recently we shared the lobster pasta and the grilled octopus - both were delicious. The cheese and cured meats boards are reliably good, and the wines by the glass all quite drinkable. The ambiance is quiet and sophisticated. Hotel restaurants are often nothing special but Bank & Bourbon is an unexpected pleasure.
