Had a reservation for lunch with friends after seeing the craft show at the convention center down the street. We were given the wrong menus, not a big deal. Our food was delicious, we had trout and salmon, and shared the mushroom appetizer. But the food was brought out before we were served our drinks, which we had been waiting awhile for. No waitstaff were visible anywhere for us to request our drinks or server. They offered and comped us one dessert for the mix-up. I think the server may have been new, but there was no oversight.

Unless in a separate, private room (good for groups), it was almost too loud to be able to have a conversation with the person sitting across the table. Otherwise, very good. Thank you.

 (Chicago)·Dined on October 10, 2017

Overall the food was excellent. The pork-belly appetizer was awesome. The garden salad was made of fresh, crisp vegetables with a night light dressing. The entree (duck) was ok, but somewhat disappointing. A bit underdog and somewhat tough, bland flavor. I would recommend the restaurant but not that dish. Excellent service.

Food was phenomenal. Really good duck, and my wife enjoyed her tuna. The Bourbon flight was really enjoyable as well. You can easily distinguish between them to find what you like even for a novice drinker like myself. My only two complaints are that the noise got a bit loud but that was probably due to us sitting beside a hard wall. The other was that as the busier it got, the slower the service. Eventually others came in to help. Those two complaints are not enough to really keep anyone away. I would recommend it for a nice dinner.

In town for work, we decided to grab a meal here. We were immediately seated and were the only other table near a group of Jersey-clad Eagles fans. Service was good, food was good. As you’d expect, they have a decent bourbon list and several craft cocktails based on the name. On the whole, a good experience.

I won't take clients here because the service was way too slow, and the restaurant was not that busy. Tables around us were served and cleared much quicker. Although we were four women casually dressed dining together, it was a business meal.

Lunch was terrific! We went to "restaurant week" & had a delicious salad, crusted chicken & key lime pie for dessert.

My friend dropped her fork & in an instant someone appeared to pick it up.

Service was the best I have been to lately in center city.

We will be back

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on September 15, 2017

Our service was impeccable and our food was amazing. We went during Center City District's restaurant week so we were able to taste three courses for a very reasonable price. Of course, that just freed up funds for bourbon tasting. The Secret Knock, first on the cocktails menu, sounds strange but it is absolutely delicious. Get it if you get a chance. Mike was our waiter and he was wonderful in answering questions and making recommendations as it was our first visit (but certainly not our last). The ambiance was great - low lighting, full bar, open kitchen. I even liked the way the staff was dressed - relaxed but chic. I would definitely recommend and can't wait to go back.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on September 15, 2017

We went to Bank and Bourbon during restaurant week in Philadelphia. We had a wonderful meal. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. I had a taste of ham board, flat iron steak with roasted vegetables, and bread pudding. The steak just melted in my mouth. So delicious. My husband had tuna tartare, trout, and key lime pie. He said this was also very good.

Since we went during restaurant week the prices were fixed, but we were presented with the normal menu as well. The normal menu seemed quite a bit pricier. We also never got our waiter's name. He was in the room visible plenty of the time but checked on us sparingly. Service was provided by a whole team rather than just him, and our food came out at appreciatable intervals, burnt would have been nice to have a point person had there been any problems.

Overall, excellent restaurant and excellent food!

The food was amazing, but I had horrible service. The waitress forgot to bring out drinks and I had to ask again after waiting a good 20 minutes for soda. Also, they took so long to bring desserts once we asked for them to bring them. The waitress said they are right behind her, but then we ended up waiting another 15-20 minutes. We kept having to ask again and again or else we wouldn't have gotten taken care of. It was very annoying especially since this was a business work lunch and it ended up taking us longer than planned just to get our food.

This resturant was a great gem of Philly's Resturant week. I would say that the food and service were excellent, but their drink prices were a bit inflated. $21 for a glass of Woodford Reserve seems to be way out of proportion there. That's the price of a bottle! Other than that, my date and I really enjoyed the night. We will be back!
