What a wonderful meal! My husband and I came here on the recommendation of a coworker and our only regret is that we don't live closer. An unbelievable dining experience.

Loved every second of my experience. Everyone in my family was able to find a stuff that they like. Which for my family is hard to do because we have a vegetarian, a gluten and dairy free, and someone watching their weight. Everybody really loved their food and was able to find something for everyone.

Food and service were excellent. Seating for two at one of the bar tables downstairs was not ideal, very cramped. Since I only made the reservation a day in advance I didn’t question it, however, in the timeframe we ate dinner I noticed there were many open tables for two that would have been much more comfortable.

Came here the last two years for our anniversary. We absolutely love it here, the small plates give you opportunity to try so much! And we loved our server Brian. People like him make our decision to come back next year pretty easy! Thanks Brian!

The food was some of the best I have had and the service is top notch. Ryan, our server was outstanding. He took the time to explain each of the food and drink options and his knowledge of it all was remarkable.

Great ambiance and food - loved that you can reserve bar seating! Cocktails weren’t my favorite and we didn’t receive some of the food we ordered. Overall a must try if you are in Philadelphia without kids!

Second try at this cool underground spot. The first time, after dropping $150 on dinner and two drinks each, we left still hungry enough to need to eat again once back at home. Things are delicious. And very, very tiny. And very pricey. Wine by the glass is mediocre, though the cocktails were great. The second time eating at Double Knot was identical to the first. Way overpriced, and we left still hungry. I’d recommend this place for a cocktail before heading to dinner elsewhere. Service was attentive and pleasant. Lighting and ambiance was very cozy and cool. Music is a bit cheesy a la 90’s lounge in Ibiza, but generally inoffensive.

We were in town for a 2 night stay and heard about Double knot as a great Philly restaurant
You will not be disappointed. The decor is fresh and young. The host/hostess seated us in the quietest spot of this bustling restaurant, in the lower dining level. Perfect! Our server, Lillian was a doll. She suggested a few good items and we went with them. We had the fried cheese curd and mushroom app. A few great sushi orders and some saki ... I could have gone on and one but way to full. Must return to try other items. Double Knot, a philly gem. From a NewYorker, that says a lot .

Fabulous holiday and birthday celebration with dear friends our server Jordan was friendly and extremely helpful with recommendations for what to try. Try a sushi roll with tuna. And the miso eggplant as well as the fried chicken. Actually the Japanese fried chicken is not to be missed. It’s outstanding. As is the mochi also try a craft cocktail too

We love the wait staff here as well as the food! Yet each time we go with a reservation we have to wait for a table. To address that this time they did give us a tuna toast app which was delicious & it was nice they did that. The person checking was very friendly. I do think check in should be where you enter the restaurant. The bao buns are so yummy, Especially the pork scrapple. Ambiance is incredible here too!

The food was exceptional and amazing. The sushi eel, the fried tofu, the albacore tuna, the sword fish 'belly', scallops. Yumm!!! The service was professional, friendly, warm. The place was too dark. It was just too dark and hard to see :)

Every experience we’ve had here has been incredible. Never had a bad meal or bite. The food is innovative and delicious and the cocktails are strong and creative. The service is impeccable every time, and the ambiance is perfect for a date or intimate get together with friends. It is dark but fun, candle light every where, good music playing. Would recommend 10/10, we can’t wait to come back again!
