Beau Monde is an ideal restaurant for a business meeting (as well as personal). It creates a feeling of "specialness" that I want to convey to my clients.

Seating is critical, should have asked for a different seat we were in the middle where everyone seemed to walk by. The seafood crepe was to runny and I just don't think seafood and crepes go well, my fault for picking that. I'm the other hand the drinks were all great.

Great crepes! Beau Monde is the perfect place to have dinner for couples or small groups. The service was good and the food pretty good for a reasonable price.

What a cozy, romantic treasure! My husband and wanted to see the cabaret at L'étage on Friday evening and decided to have dinner downstairs first. What divine treat. The friendly host and beautiful fireplace were warm greetings as we entered Beau Monde. Everything was very relaxed, not rushed and delicious!
My husband enjoyed the Kobe Burger and I loved the soup du jour and thin crust pizza....and chocolate crêpe :)

A friend and I went to Beau Monde for brunch and on the sidewalk upon entering the restaurant we were immediately transported to a cafe in Paris. We were no longer in Philadelphia. It was cute, quaint and reminded me of the time I went to Paris a few years ago. A lovely experience and the crepes were amazing.

We went as a group of 5 for my daughter's birthday. As always, food was delicious! Two had french onion soup, we shared goat cheese mousse and house salads. Then we each had savory crepes. No complaints from our group. I'm loving the duck breast, Brie and fig crepe; my favorite lately.
Alison our server was great! Several of us are trying to learn french and she was patient when we stumbled over the words, and she speaks it fluently!

The food and the service were great! I got a sausage and ratatouille crepe with a side of brunch potatoes, delicious! The only downsides are that It gets a noisy during the weekend and it’s a bit pricey. We went with my 6 months old and he did good even with the noise though! Recommended anyway!!

I'll start with the positives - the crepes and gelato were excellent. I would come back on that basis alone.

However there was a party of around two dozen that filled most of the restaurant, and the wait staff had a hard time serving them along with the rest of the diners. Because the other party had a birthday celebration, the noise level was higher than usual.

Best crepes in the city. Menu offers a range of fillings that will satisfy the pickiest to the hungriest person. Wait staff is attentive and experienced, and the room feels like it could be tucked into an cozy street anywhere in Paris. Don’t miss the crepes Suzette to finish off your meal.

We went for early dinner, 4:30pm, and they were out of the soup of the day. It would not have been a problem except our server had just told us the Soup de Jour. There was definitely a break down in communication at the restaurant. Don't ask for anything other than what's on the menu. My wife wanted the roasted beet in the roasted salad warm. No can do. I ordered a salad with Tuna medium well and it came out hard rubbery and chewy after our server said that they usually serve it seered rare. My wife enjoyed her crepe and said that it was very good although my salad was so so.

Beau Monde is always wonderful. We've been going for years, probably two decades. Every time we find ourselves in Philly, we make time to eat at Beau Monde. Love the ambience and the decor. The crepes are fabulous. You will not be disappointed.

Love this place, especially in the winter. I had the french onion soup, he had the soup special which was a pepper soup. I had the duck crepe and my honey had the coq au vin crepe. All was delicious! They make a nice French 75 too.

Loved the atmosphere - nice looking bar, hammered tin ceiling, old wood floors, a few nooks, window seating.
Outstanding selection of crepes -,that’s why you go.
Interesting drink selections (only ding was that it took a while for drinks to arrive, despite the fact that it was not busy)
I liked the flexibility to select pre-selected crepe ingredient combos or make your own.

This was our first time at Beau Monde and the food was delicious. Three of us had build your own crêpes and the other two had beef Bourgignon crates. We are celebrating two birthdays so we had three sweet crapes for dessert and they were all delicious. Can’t wait to come back and try some other items on the menu.

Had a savory crepe (smoked trout with spinach) and a sweet crepe (berry with lemon sobert) and shared both with a friend (they split the portions automatically as the portions for one regular serving are very large) and both were incredible. We also tried a few of their original cocktails that were very refreshing. I went with a friend at 12pm on a Sunday with a reservation but there was plenty of seating available. I would definitely come back to try other crepe flavors

We went for Sunday brunch/lunch: it has a quiet and relaxed (but not noise ) dining space, a small bar and large fireplace. The food was excellent, from the drinks ("One of the best Bloody Marys I've ever had" said one of our party) to the salmon special appetizer. Our waiter was great, too. We plan go there again soon for dinner.
