I felt that the service was very very slow for a Wednesday night! The restaurant was pretty empty and it took forever to get our food.
The food was good, not great. I might go back but the difference would have to be drastic for me to make a 3rd visit.
Five of us visited for Restaurant Week before attending the theater. We were seated promptly at our 5:30 time and in a corner near a window - wonderful. All 3 courses came at appropriate times, we got our check and got to the theater for our 7:00 show. Very well done. Several of us enjoyed the potato soup. The salmon was nicely browned and quite a good size. The bread was great. The service was just right. The apple crisp with ice cream was too sweet for my taste and I thought the apples should have been cooked a bit more but maybe that was due to Restaurant Week.
Best friend get together. It was great. Only had to wait about 5 min. Food was excellent
I wasn't sure what to think in the beginning. I went for an anniversary and it seemed a little more casual than I had thought. However, we were seated in a corner by the sidewalk away from the chaos of the bar. I like how they had flights of whiskey on their menu because I did want to try more than one. It would have been nice to pick different ones, but I'm sure that can be tough with price points. I didn't go for an entree because I wanted to give a few of the appetizers a try. I thought the pierogies were the best, but the tuna tartare was also delicious. I had some of the chicken entree and that was full of flavor, falling right off the bone. It was also really nice of them to bring champagne over at the end. I'd come back, but for something a bit more casual.
Sergi was terrific! I especially loved the tuna tartare & the restaurant week sushi!
Went for restaurant week. The Yukon potato soup was not good. However, the trout may have been the best trout I've ever had. And the apple cobbler is to die for. I'll definitely go back.
Food was ok, at least on the CCD RW menu. I would of thought they’d put their best foot forward. Nothing really blew me away.
First time here - did restaurant week lunch - great lunch! will definitely be back
Great lunch, went during Restaurant week before the Home show
The service was horrible. Not only was my order messed up, but they had the audacity to send back the same plate by only taking the bacon off. (I don't eat meat) so once the plate was brought out, it came back in less than 10 minutes. The food was bland & i'd rather have red lobster.
We were at restaurant for restaurant week menu. We had not been there before and left with excellent impression. The waiter was friendly and attentive. The food was very good and of course great value due to restaurant week pricing. We will return though for regular menu. Seating was quiet and comfortable. Great visit overall.
My daughters and I dined there during Restaurant Week. The price and choices were very agreeable, and we enjoyed our meals. The portion sizes were just right. I appreciated the decor and the large windows which provided a view of the street corner. The servers were quite friendly and efficient. I will definitely go back with my husband sometime soon for dinner.
Ordered the salmon salad. Could have had a little more salad fixins in the bowl.
Wonderful food, service, and view. Great place.
The brunch is excellent with lots of options and overall good quality food. The smoked salmon and omlet were highlights. There is an extensive dessert cart.
We spent New Year's Eve here. We arrived early and decided to grab a drink at the bar - the bar tenders could not have been nicer or more informative. Dinner was good - it was a $65/person 3 course meal (reasonable for NYE in the city). The oyster first course was fabulous and the potato soup was good. The prime rib and filet dinner courses were both good and desserts were fine. Service was a little off - I had ordered the wine pairing and my drink came several minutes after my food with each course. But that is the only complaint, and given it was NYE, it was still overall a good night. They also did a great champagne toast at midnight.
I have been to many steakhouses in philadelphia and the filet I had during my visit for the prix fixe new years eve was one of the best i have had in the city. Highly recommended!
Excellent service, setting and food. Was delighted to pick this place for our NYE celebration. Will definitely be back soon!
The overall experience was wonderful; atmosphere and food. The service at the table left something to be desired however the receptionist and bar tender were fantastic.
Second time dining here- just ok this time. Waiter didn't know what
"crudo" was when we asked - despite it being on the prefixed NYE menu and although the food was very good my husband and I both got bad stomach aches later that evening into the following morning (we both had the medium rare filet mignon). Not sure whether we'll be back again.
Really enjoyed the experience at Bank and Bourbon. Our server made excellent drink selections, allowed us plenty of time for conversation, paced the meal very well. Wine list has some hidden gems. Filet was delicious. The pork chop was beautifully presented, but was a tad dry.....perhaps because it was served sliced. But nevertheless, it was an excellent experience!
Just a great place with fantastic food, wine and great ambiance.
Next time I'll visit Philadelphia I will come back to this place.
One of our absolute favorite places to eat in Philly. Whenever we plan a trip to this awesome town Bank & Bourbon is the first reservation we make. The service is always amazing and the food never disappoints.Merry Christmas!
We had a very enjoyable experience.
My husband and I dined at Bank and Bourbon for Christmas Day. After waiting an hour for our waiter to take our drink order, my drink came, with a FLY in it! There was no apology from the waiter nor was the drink taken off our bill. I was so grossed out and there was no one that seemed to care. Our food was good, but not great. It was not worth the $180 we paid. We will never be returning or recommending this place.
Very nice place, service was slow and weird considering the fact my guest and I were the only people at the bar. To go order was also incorrect. Delicious Ahi Tuna and Dessert.
Our 2nd Christmas Brunch/Lunch here (2 years in a row). Looking forward to many more!
I turned Vegan this year and was worried about menu Choices (last year, inhad Eggs Bennie). There were many vegetarian and vegan items to choose from! I went with the Roasted Brussels Sprouts And Roasted Fingerlings—Delicious!
Service and food was top notch, will be back! We had their limited XMAS Eve menu which was excellent!!
Sunday was my first visit to Bank and Bourbon to celebrate a Christmas Eve dinner with my best friend. Overall, I have to be honest and say I wasn't terribly impressed. Service was okay, nothing that exceeded expectations.
The food was okay, they had a 3 course set menu for $55 per person for the occasion. I started off with the tuna tartare, which was good and probably my favorite part of the meal. The main course, salmon was very dry, and not too flavorful, lacking a bit of seasoning as well. Lastly, the chocolate yule log was okay, but a tad on the dry side for me as well. Based on my experience, I likely wouldn't return but I'm glad I gave it a shot.
The food and service at bank and bourbon restaurant was exemplary. Lauren was our server and she made recommendations upon our request and there were no regrets. The seared tuna sandwich was so very tasty as was the burger. Definitely will return.
Met a client here for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. Staff was very professional, attentive, and respectful of the fact that we were having a meeting over lunch. I had the seared chicken salad and he had the beef tartar. Both dishes were very well done. The yogurt dressing on the salad was phenomenal. Dishes were well sized for lunch portions and the pricing was reasonable for Center City. Will be taking more clients here.
It was our first visit to the Bank and Bourbon and we liked it a lot. It was a convenient walk to the City Hall in a nice neighborhood with many ohter bars and restaurants. We had the Scallops and the Filet Mignon and both were delicious, cooked to perfection. Would definitely go here again and next time we would also try the bourbon selection.
Food was very good. It was extremely noisy and we were far away from bar.
We enjoyed B&B on our annual Christmas visit to Philly. It's very convenient if you are staying st the lowes or the Marriott The food was excellent. The service was very good. Thanks to Natalie. We are big whisky drinkers and one reason we came here was for the extensive Bourbon selection. That said be careful. The drinks are small and very expensive.
I had the special which was roasted trout which was exceptionally good. My wife had a filet which was done to perfection
We didn't expect to spend over $200 but we did due to the high cost of the drinks. But it was worth it for the Food
Be aware that the seating can get a little tight and it is a noisy space especially if there are large parties in the side rooms
Bank & Bourbon was the perfect mix of elegance and intuitive dining. With perfect portions and a unique menu for all, you can’t go wrong dining here for any occasion, or grabbing a drink.
It was Army -Navy night!
Always a winner! This is our 4th year of incredible food, service and ambiance! Please don’t change a thing!!!
Very good menu. A lot of verity. The duck was served very creatively. Food was great. Vanilla dounut desert that was advertised on website was creative. Good wine list. Great bourbon tasting bar. Accessible to down town hotels.
My experience at Bank and Bourbon was exceptional from the time I made the reservation to the second I left. We had a bourbon tasting that was incredible in a unique and private room, followed by an amazing dinner. Every person I dealt with was kind, knowledgeable and eager to provide us with a quality experience. We loved it!
I go to Bank & Bourbon because it is located near some of my clients. The menu does not have enough salad or sandwiches choices. The burger is overly salty and the service is hit or miss. I only eat here because of the location.
