Overall the meal and experience was great. Our meal just took extremely long but due to foot service and communication it didn’t feel that bad. This is my third time eating at this establishment so I’ll just file it under they were taking extra precautions due to Covid-19

It's a decent experience. For outdoor dining, they did what they can to make the experience comfortable as possible-- side street dining, with heaters, and whatnot. Food and drink is great, as always. However, I will say that I sometimes feel like my server neglected me at times.

BP was off it's game. We had a 7pm Sat. nt res. -We were on time and were told the table would be ready in a few mins. LSS we to seated at about 730/745. The mgr told us first round of drinks were on him -sorry for the wait. The food was very good- Best filet and wedge salad I have had in a long time, but our food took forever to come. It was just not a good night. The food was good, but our experience was not. Our waiter had his hands full it seemed and was running around and seemed rushed. Not sure I would go back as there are plenty of other places to pick from. We were very disappointed.

Service was excellent. Thanks Erin! Cocktails were perfect. Oysters were perfect. Hamachi and carpaccio were excellent, as well as the steak Oscar. Great coffee. Fantastic Barclay bar dessert. First meal out since the lockdown. Could not have been better.

The cheesesteak is worth every single penny. We split it up as an appetizer but I honestly wish I had ordered my own, lol. I then got the ribeye AND the lobster and butter. The steak was cooked to perfectly and well seasoned and the lobster is everything you'd imagine a lobster and butter would be. Plus the lobster portion was huge!

I wish I lived in Philadelphia, i'd definitely be back TODAY for that cheesesteak. Or wait, probably my next paycheck, ha!

The food was perfect as was the service. My steak was best ever, and it was the “standard” 14 ounce NY strip. I’ve had many, but the taste, texture, and temperature were just right. Always love the puffy, savory, perfectly and lightly cheese infused bread. The tater tots and Brussels sprouts were hot, scrumptious and cooked to perfection. We celebrated my wife’s birthday. Our server was excellent and tuned in to safety. Thanks ! We will be back, soon I hope!!

Everything about the restaurant was amazing, as soon as you walk in it was elegant. The bread and butter was delicious and the entrees as well. Whoever the chef was that made the NY strip steak, that was by far the best steak we’ve ever tasted. Thank you!

Even with the changes due to Covid, we still had an amazing meal for my boyfriend's birthday. Started with the Tuna Tartare, split a wedge salad, both had steaks (filet and 20oz NY strip) and whipped potatoes and pumpkin cheesecake for dessert and a few cocktails as well. Plates and silverware were constantly picked up. Servers always checking in. Incredible service as always.

The parking would be my only serious issue. The valet parking isn’t available right now and the street parking is non-existent. The site should let people know that valet isn’t open right now since it’s listed as they have valet.

We were very disappointed at the end of the meal when we hadn’t been presented with the dessert menu yet that the manager told us we were approaching the time limit for our table. We were very pleasant at the fact that we didn’t receive our first cocktails till 40 minutes after being seated at the table. Perhaps the time limit should be more based on service and not seating time.
