The portions were small which is probably why they require at least 4 courses. You cannot order alacarte off the menu. The service was iffy and we felt neglected. There was a large party in the room and at times we couldn't find our server. To make matters worse, it was a special night because we got engaged and it didn't seem that special regarding the dining experience at all.
I would cautiously go to this restaurant. Although the food and presentation were good, it didn't make up for the fact that the service was lacking.

Excellent service by Auston and entire staff. The 4 course menu was outstanding. As each dish came out, it was explained in detail. The presentation of each dish was beautifully presented. We were celebrating friend's 40th birthday and it was definitely a memorable one. We had the best time. Thank you.

First and perhaps most importantly, that a French-inspired restaurant at this price point was willing to produce a tasting menu for vegetarians that was not explicitly offered on the menu was great. It is also worth mentioning that they clearly have worked very hard at producing a very well oiled machinery around their service. That said, if I contrast this with a restaurant like August (in New Orleans) which, in theory, should be somewhat comparable, August wins in almost every imaginable dimension. The food is ok, though there were taste, balance, and seasoning issues, nothing that said wow, nothing either of us would want to enjoy again. The service was mechanically great, but not human at all. So take this review with a grain of salt, I am sure we are not the target audience given that we requested a vegetarian menu. Perhaps the meats are worth the visit, but the vegetables are not.

We had such an incredible experience! The restaurant is lovely. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious, creative, and innovative. We had the 4 course meal and the wine pairing. (No way we could have managed the 7 course meal!). It was well worth the price. I would definitely go again!

Very romantic and casual upscale environment—It was perfect for any special celebration. Ours was our 1st year Anniversary. The presentation of the food was superb. We were so full we had to take the “after dessert” dessert to go. The food was very flavorful & enough to fill my husbands belly! Don’t miss this jewel!

Everything was excellent! The food was creative, beautifully presented, and the flavors were perfect. Each course that came out was an exceedingly pleasant surprise and there were between course surprises too! Service was gracious and attentive. The wine pairings were fantastic and we took down several names to buy when we get back home. Anyone who has a chance to dine here should not hesitate!

First-time patrons. Had a wonderful 7 course paired tasting menu at Chez Philippe for our anniversary. What a great experience, trying a variety of the chef's dishes, presented in creative ways on various artsy plates, along with some nice white and red wine selections. Our server, Solomon, was very friendly and professional, and he and his colleagues were attentive while not rushing us. The ambiance and noise was negatively impacted by hotel lobby noise (entrance to restaurant is just off lobby with no doors), as well as noise from music being played (mostly bass from dance music) in one of the ballrooms for a party or wedding reception. The wines with dinner were tasty and well-matched to the food, but for the cost, none of the selections were special or expensive, especially when compared to the wines on the full wine list. Quite expensive, but worth it for a truly special occasion!

We have the four course meal with wine pairing and it was excellent! We enjoyed the extra treats that were added to our meal as well. Our waiter was excellent and the staff worked well together. Our food was very tasty and perfectly cooked. The food is pricey, but it is occasionally worth it to us on special occasions.

It was a most pleasant experience. We felt as if we were the only customers in the restaurant. The atmosphere was warm and romantic. The staff made us feel as we were there main priority. We were not rushed between courses and the staff assisted in helping my husband who is disabled with going and coming in the restaurant. The food was delicious and the portions more than enough. Each course through out the meal seemed to build upon the next and at the end we were more than full. Many thanks to the staff and chef.

My husband and I traveled to Memphis for a weekend getaway and decided it would be fun to take in a nice dinner while visiting the world-famous Peabody hotel. Little did we know we were in for the meal of our lives. Our server, Auston, made feel immediately welcome and explained the dinner options to us. We decided to go with the 4-course meal with the wine pairing. The sommelier (Priyaank) took the time to pour each wine himself and tell us why it was chosen with the course. Our meal was exquisite; the wines were perfect and our dessert was delectable. In between courses we were treated to surprise goodies. Apart from the customary palette cleansers such as sorbets, we were given melt in your mouth cheddar biscuits, stone fruits cold soups, pre dessert sweets and post dessert treats. We were even sent home with bags filled with additional snacks and a hand written thank you note signed by the staff. We travel often and love to sample local restaurants wherever we go. Chez Philippe easily ranks among the best meals we have ever had. I recommend that anyone who finds themselves in Memphis, TN do themselves a favor and book a table for dinner.
