We were visiting from NYC and came across great reviews for this spot so thought we’d give it a go. Our waitress was super knowledgeable about the menu and so helpful in choosing our dinner selection. We decided to try the 10 plate tasting menu and it was out of this world! I can’t remember the last time I had a meal where every single dish was amazing. My boyfriend was joking that we should see if they’ll deliver to NYC haha. He said the duck dish was the best duck he’s ever had and I particularly liked the sea bass, but everything was phenomenal!!!!! HIGHLY recommend. Oh and the atmosphere was incredible as well!

Chef’s Tasting menu was absolutely fantastic. Service was smooth and so well done that it seemed that some of the plates just appeared on the table in front of us. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an incredible meal!

This was my first experience at Double Knot for dinner—previously I had visited the café for a small bite/coffee. My husband and I both ordered 4 items each (a mix of sushi, kabobs, veggies and bao buns) and it was the perfect amount. Service was excellent—the staff here is a notch above the rest, and I truly mean that. You can tell their service training is a high priority because the entire experience was seamless and I really felt like a valued customer. It is incredibly refreshing to be helped by a staff that is not pretentious and seem to really enjoy their job. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Excellent service! Great cocktail selection. Foie gras sushi and lamb chops were outstanding, pork belly and shrimp buns were really poor. Other than that everything was great. At the end of the meal we had matcha green tea mochis, they were one of the bests I had in US.

We went for a meal before theater. Service was very good. Ambience is nice. Food is good but not great, nice presentation, prices are high for what you get. Sushi rice too much vinegar. Robata steak cloying sweetness of sauce, no depth of flavor, no umami, meat was good. Fried tofu was overfried to the point of dry chewiness and sauce too sweet. Japanese scallop lacked sweetness of the scallops. Swordfish belly skewer too fatty for me, but that was my error ordering it as I knew it would be fatty. Hamachi crudo was nice. Squid ink fried ruce was good. Cocktails are good, pricey. I did not like my sake, pedestrian at a high price point. There is izakaya that I prefer in Philly for my taste.

We had the tasting menu and enjoyed it. Most dishes were excellent but one or two were too salty. We’ll be back.

Flew into philly from Toronto, and a friend of mine recommended double knot to me.

I instantly fell in love! I remember telling my friend who was with me that “the food better hit the spot because I’m already impressed”. The food was phenomenal, our server was extremely detailed, and the service was fast and efficient. Must try this place if you’re visiting philly and into asian - fusion type of food. Or if you want a spot to have some drinks.

Highly recommend this restaurant. We made reservations for “bar seating” and ended up sitting in the quiet downstairs area at a small table with a booth. Very nice atmosphere, great service and excellent food. Got the chefs tasting menu which is a great deal and worth it. Will definitely be back!

Super cool experience eating at the counter downstairs - felt like was in another world rather than downtown Phlly. Both my friend and I had the omakase menu which was outstanding. So much variety for a very reasonable price. The service was excellent - super attentive without being overbearing. Both of us were talking so much that we forgot to eat the mochi ice cream dessert before it melted. Ryan, our waiter, gladly offered to bring two new ones. Amazing. I highly recommend Double Knot and will definitely be back!

Japanese fusion small dishes blend incredible flavors stimulates the palate.
Pork dumplings to die for. Short ribs melt in your mouth.
Will need to return to try all that they have on their menu!
Lots of energy, great service.

I loved the restaurant and the food...amazing. I was unhappy with their wine list and the fact it was not updated. Too many selections not available. But the worst was when they brought me the incorrect wine I selected and then tried to tell me it was what I had ordered. I know wine and know it well, and I felt like I was being handed a little BS. There was no need for that!

Everything was great but it was pre- theatre and the kitchen may have been rushed. One of our warm dishes was served late and cold. We had to leave for the show so we could not have it replaced.

This is my new favorite restaurant! We chose to do the chef’s tasting where they choose each course for you. It was definitely the way to go! Every single dish was perfect and delicious! The ambiance is great as well. It is a speakeasy vibe and dinner by candle light. I can’t wait to go back!! Side note: get the Kobe beef! U will not be disappointed! We have not stopped talking about it since we left 🤣

We tried the blind chef's tasting menu and it was a great experience. We tried food we would have never otherwise ordered, it was all delicious and our server was helpful along the way! It was a very gluten-free friendly environment. They were able to accommodate that food allergy with ease.

I’ve been to double knot (no exaggeration) about 100 times now. New-ish bartender Chris is PHENOMENAL. Incredible cocktails kept flowing all night, mostly off menu. This is not an unusual occurrence at double knot. Every visit just seems to be better than the last!
