We were in Philadelphia for a conference and needed to find a place for a business meeting on a Sunday. We chose Bank & Bourbon because it was very convenient to our hotel (Marriott downtown). We were able to walk across the street. We were seated in a very quiet spot which allowed us to have our meeting and also enjoy our lunch. The server was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was very good.

Bank and Bourbon is a reliable choice on east Market Street, particularly for drinks and appetizers/bar food. We like to share the cured meats and cheese platters in particular. The wines by the glass during happy hour are surprisingly good as well.

Service is always great at Bank and Bourbon. The food has become much less creative than it used to be. The salad options have become very limited. The lunch menu is heavy and small.

On property hotel restaurants have a reputation for mediocre food. Bank and Bourbon is completely different and wonderful!!!
We had excellent service and food. The bourbon cocktails were inventive and terrific!
Sergei, our server, was on top of providing us with the food and drink with perfect timing.
Can't recommend this place highly enough!

We ended up having a late night bite at around 11pm. The staff was extremely friendly for it being pretty late. We split the burger and it was fantastic. Large portion and presented nicely. I had a fresh cocktail but I can't remember the name at the moment. It was very good. Ambience was nice. I liked that we could bring our dog and relax in the lounge with the large tvs. There was light music playing with the tvs on mute and lighting was relaxed for the night time.

My family of 5 came in for Mother's Day brunch (2 adults, one teen and two children). The value simply was not there and service was not up to par. They offered a limited number of entrees plus a fairly limited seasonal display of lite fare. The lite fare was not replenished frequently, there were not utensils for each item, and because utensils were shared between items and with nuts, dairy, etc...choices for those with allergies were limited. For such a poor display, I felt that a 2 sour cream blueberry pancakes for $28 was completely over priced. Bacon was extra for $6. Additionally, the kids menu listed a $5 price point, they then charged us with an additional $12 fee for the five year old which is apparently standard and allows them to also eat items from the aforementioned poorly executed seasonal display. This $12 fee should have been clearly listed, not a surprise. On top of this, our server was non-existent throughout the meal.

My wife and family had a wonderful Mother's Day brunch. The atmosphere was great for the occasion. The food was spectacular!! Chef Tom Harkins is undoubtedly one of the most talented in Philly. Overall, I would highly recommend Bank and Bourbon to anyone who is looking for a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion with your spouse. I look forward to returning with a group of long-time friends to enjoy more food and libations.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on May 12, 2017

After living and working in Philadelphia for over two years, this was by far the worst dining experience I have ever had in the city. First off, the service was incredibly slow. When we arrived, we let the staff know that we were in a bit of a rush. Still, our waitress did not even come over to our table for 20 minutes. It took another 15 for her to come back to get our order, and by the time our food arrived nearly 45 minutes had passed. By that time, I had to head back to work, so I asked for my salad to be put in a to-go box immediately. This was a mistake, as I was not able to see the terrible quality of the food before paying and leaving the restaurant.

I ordered the shrimp salad, and for 15 dollars it was pitiful. The toppings listed on the menu were not included in the salad (when we asked where the almond pesto was, their reply was that it was already mixed into the dressing..also no radishes despite being listed on the menu). The lettuce was wilted and the portion was roughly half of what you'd get at sweet green. To make matters worse, the shrimp in my salad was seriously undercooked to the point where I could not eat it because it seemed raw. Since I had already left the restaurant, I was not able to send it back, but I certainly would have.

Bank and Bourbon is a terribly overpriced restaurant with poor service and even worse quality food.

The food was delicious -- especially the roast duck entree -- and the service was attentive. Cocktails were also well done -- interesting, but not overly fussy. The seating was comfortable & the tables weren't too close together, which was nice.

My husband and I ate dinner here on a Friday evening at 6:45 pm. We had made a reservation on Open Table but it was not at all busy. The atmosphere is very pleasant and quiet. Our food was delicious and our server was very friendly, helpful and attentive. The starter salad was very large and could easily be shared by two people. The potato fingerlings side dish ordered a la carte was also very plentiful and more than enough for two to share.

The food was terrific. The Branzino was well prepared and absolutely fresh. The local Lancaster Chicken was comfort food at it s best. The crispy fingerlings were really crispy and the salsa verde was a unique take on salsa.
The selection of whiskeys was amazing. 6 small print pages of everything from bourbon to American whiskey. The tasting flights are a great bargain and give you a nice range of flavors.
The service is impeccable, not formal, friendly without being intrusive.

The ambience is nice. The waiter seemed rushed and not very interested in our table. ( we ordered a bottle of wine and the most expensive steak on the menu) the appetizers were lack luster, the steak was over cooked and when it was time for dessert he tells us they turned off the gas. I was not impressed.

Everything on the menu that we tried was delicious. Mushroom soup was out of this world. Even the bread was good. We split a filet and it was cooked just as we ordered it (Medium Rare). Presentation was elegant. Wait staff spoiled us, and I would definitely recommend this for an elegant yet moderately priced date.

Steak was well done and charred when it was supposed to be medium well. Service was slow as mollasis. Other patrons majority were so loud and drunk you couldn't hear conversations. The staff managers were no where to be found to assist in waiting tables and quieting the inappropriate crowds. A sad place and waste of money

The food was fantastic... when it finally arrived, and the order was correct... Our waiter seemed to be struggling a bit, but he was trying very hard. The first round of cocktails took a while to hit the table, and when the appatizers finally came one of them was wrong. They fixed it pretty quickly, but it was still wrong on the check at the end of the meal. The strangest part was the periodic changing of the silverware. It seemed like every 15 or 20 minutes a server or busser would come by and change out our unused silverware, it was odd. But the food really was excellent and the pineapple sorbet that came with the coconut cake was kind of magical. Service was shaky, but the overall experience was really pretty nice.

I booked this place after reading all the good reviews. We arrived early and were seated right away which was great for a Saturday night. The tables are very close together and you could hear the conversations of others around you. We ordered our drinks and dinner and our dinner arrived before our drinks. Since there are only 3 steak options it seems like you order and they have them plated and bring it right out. My husband had the NY strip which was lukewarm at best. He asked for a steak knife to cut it after telling the waiter it was quite tough and was toid they did not have any. He should have sent it back but did not want to leave me eating alone. He was not able to finish it as he could not cut it. The waiter asked how the meal was and he told him "it was the toughest meat I have ever eaten out". My filet mignon was very good. It was not super warm upon arrival but the flavor was very good. We also had the brussels sprouts and fingerling potatoes which were also very good. We did not have any dessert.

Went for dinner Sat evening in quest of a good steak and a view of the NCAA basketball Tourney. This restaurant excellently satisfied both goals. Our filets were surprisingly outstanding given that it's not considered a "steakhouse". We had oysters for our appetizer and these were very good as well And as you'd expect from the restaurant's name, they have an extensive list of bourbons. In keeping with this vast selection, my wife and I each had 2 old fashions to help us cope with the grief of a Villanova NCAA Tournament loss. Im happy to say, we quickly recovered !
Great service, too, by the way.......

I came here for a first date as we both enjoy whiskey and bourbon. They have whiskey flights which were fun to share during dinner. The tables were pretty close to one another, as we heard both conversations on either side of our table and when servers came by, it was a tight squeeze. Otherwise, a little pricey for the food but it was pretty good overall. The service was great and our server was patient with us while we took our time trying to pick out various drinks to try. Will go back again.

Reception was ridiculous! I arrived first ten minutes before break at ended. I told her we were there for brunch or lunch and she told me we had to have breakfast. I told her my friends had not yet arrived. Place was empty. She gave me breakfast menus.

Server recovered by coming over to tell me that if I wanted to order breakfast I should hurry. When I told him lunch he swapped out menus.

Salads and bloody Mary's were fine, but there was construction going on I. The lobby. Very loud.

I didn't know this was a hotel restaurant. Biggest virtue is the location.

Had dinner after a full day at the convention center. Nice atmosphere, solid wine/drink menu, and ample menu. Restaurant was full and was running a few minutes behind seating us for our reservation. The young and very pleasant hostess sent us a text when our table was ready. After our meal and as we were heading out, she acknowledged me using my last name inquiring how our experience was that evening. It was a welcomed surprise, wonderful customer service! I would recommend Bank and Boubon without hesitation.
