Cooperage - Philadelphia Ratings and Reviews
Made reservation through OpenTable. Upon arrival at noon our group was seated right away. Menu is not deep but has a little of everything (sandwiches, burgers, salads). Service was very good and attentive. Prices are very reasonable. Restaurant has a festive atmosphere and was decorated for Halloween.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this spot. i usually sit outside if its not sweltering. they have the BEST happy hour. i took a friend that has never been there. she didnt even know that this spot existed. she LOVED her food & her & the waitress hit it off (both Temple-ites). i go there often. the food is yummy - loved that pork sandwich & the happy hour drinks!!! check it out. its in the beautiful Curtis Center. if you can look at the mural on the other side of the building on the inside.
The Cooperage is just a short walk from my office, and that's the main reason we go there. That being said, service is always slow (not the servers, but the length of time it takes to get the food to the table), so we could probably walk somewhere farther away and still get back to the office in an hour. The food is good and fresh (I'll admit that may be part of the reason for the slowness), a bit overpriced, I think, but it is in Old City, so probably to be expected. On this visit, one at our table didn't receive the beverage they had ordered and it had to be asked for a second time. This was one of the slower days I've been there, so the noise level was moderate, but I've been there several times when it's difficult to hear conversation at your own table because the noise level is so loud.
We had two soups, a large salad and a pork sandwich. The chicken noodle soup was excellent but was warm but not hot. The chicken corn chowder was cold to lukewarm and had the consistency of a chicken pot pie. OK but it would have been better if served hot. The spinach salad was excellent. The sandwich was OK but was a little dry in places. My suggestion is go for happy hour and drink and eat snacks. Great beer.
My wife and I chose a great place for a drink last friday evening before attending the theatre. We had been there twice before but only for a drink. I now know that the Cooperage has a great happy hour, both the bar and the restaurant area were crowded but the noise level was ok. The food was delicious, our waitress was very attentive coming by several times to make certain our drinks were replenished. I will certainly be coming back to this restaurant again in the future.
Went there for Philadelphia wine week because it was listed on the website. Once there we learned that they didn't have any wine specials.
The staff were nice and our food came out quickly. My friend ordered the calamari and eggplant parmesan. I had the chicken nachos. My friend said his food was oily. I didn't have any complaints, initially. Some thing must have been wrong because the food did not agree with my body. Immediately after leaving restaurant I had to return to the hotel because I became sick to my stomach. In hind site my nachos were oily but I didn't think much of it. I wouldn't return to cooperage.
GREAT BANG FOR THE BUCK! PORTIONS ARE TREMENDOUS.
FOOD PRESENTATION AND TASTE OUTSTANDING! RECOMMEND THE EGGPLANT PARM!
WE'RE A LITTLE A BIG AND IN OUR 50'S - CHAIRS A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE.
SPOT ON SERVICE! CLEANLINESS AN "A"! GREAT SPOT FOR BEFORE OR AFTER THEATRE!
I met friends here for dinner who were in town for the weekend. We waited too long to make reservations for a Saturday night and this place was available. It was exactly what we were looking for. Moderately priced, tasty American fare a very good beer, wine and of course whiskey menu. It's kind of tucked away in a building near Jeweler's Row. I walked right past it and into Washington Square, so keep your eyes open.
Really enjoyed the idea of a 3 portion small wine flight and the clever presentation of the choices - on a wine bottle. I'm always happy with a cheese board but staff should go over the names of each cheese when delivered, even if it was on the menu. Apparently people were gathering for a wedding in the Curtis building and stopping by the bar first, at 5:00 on a Saturday. So that was a bonus in people watching.
Well, for us older folks, it was a bit noisy as we arrived at Happy Hour. If you are into the vibrant bar scene then this is a good place and Happy Hour has some wine, beer and comfort food/snacks all for $5.00 a pop. Great deal!! The food was tasty, inexpensive and the margaritas were yummy!! We were perhaps the oldest patrons in the place but we enjoyed the food and the liveliness although having a conversation was out of the Question!! We could have eaten outside but the tables were too small for 3 people out there plus it was too close to the traffic for my liking.
