Been here a lot and always had a swell time. Great food and nice atmosphere - BUT can be a little cramped and noisy - yet I keep coming back. We have had great staff - rarely miss a beat.

We felt a bit rushed by the server . The drinks, while creative and interesting, were very small.
The food was excellent as was the presentation.

The worst service in all of Philadelphia. We were met with complete contempt when we entered the restaurant. The bartender who “helped” us had the nastiest attitude. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone. Go to McDonald’s instead!!!!

Went as part of a graduation celebration. Really enjoyed the food, especially the cheese curds and shrimp tacos. Got complimentary mochi as part of the celebration, great experience as a whole.

We did the tasting menu and it was outstanding. The server was very patient in explaining things to us and we ended with a fantastic meal. Very pleased! You must try the Duck Scrapple Bao Buns - outstanding!

Double knot is one of my favorites! Delicious food! Great Happy Hour Deals! When ordering off the regular menu it gets pricey without you even really noticing- but it's delicious!

The service is never amazing here. Slow to get drinks. Sometimes it feels like our server has left the building. The food is always good though. The atmosphere is cool but unnecessarily dark. I keep coming back but I always wish it was just a little bit better.

My family and I came here on a Sunday night and were absolutely stunned with how great all the food was. The restaurant is tapas style. We ordered a variety of plates. They recommended 4-6 plates per person, but we ordered 16 plates, which was a perfect amount (we did have a little bit of leftovers though). Incredible ambience, great gem in the middle of a busy neighborhood. I would highly recommend it!!

Our experience was fine, but at the price point fine just is not enough. The rice on our rolls was overly sticky, the bun on the Duck Scrapple was spongy and wet, to the point where one of them was torn and irregular when served. We were served the same piece of sashimi that we didn’t order two times, and the shrimp tacos were overly dressed and again the tortillas were sticky.

Double Knot continues to be my favorite restaurant in Philadelphia. This was my 3rd time dining there, and every time the service is top notch. We were celebrating my friends bachelorette and I wish I had told the restaurant in advance but they rose to the occasion quickly. We got lucky, and got the larger round circular table (tables are very close otherwise), were given a complimentary processo and they were able to accommodate an outside party sending us a celebratory wine bottle rather quickly. Ryan our server was outstanding and provided guidance and recommendations. We did tasting menu and were completely satisfied.

I have been eyeing this place for months! Decided to a take a friend visiting for a weekday and made reservations. The basement has been converted into a restaurant and you would completely forget this fact seeing the decor. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our waiter explained the entire tasting menu and offered us suggestions on what would be filling as the menu is tapas style. We each ordered two apps and two sushi rolls each. It was just right for both of us to leave feeling full but not overwhelmed. Food is excellent, flavorful, fresh and arrived quickly. Perfect place for a date night and close to other bars for after dinner drinks.

It took forever to be seated. It also took up to 25 minutes for the wine to be brought to the table. Otherwise the food and company were great!

This is the 3rd time we've been here, and every time has been great. This most reason time was just a date night, but previously it had been with big groups. The food comes out so quickly that it isn't perfect for a date night, because it's all over so quickly. That being said, it's still my favorite restaurant in the city! I just wish the pacing was a little more thoughtful.

This was the highlight of our trip. We did the chef's tasting menu and let them choose which I would highly recommend. It took a while to be seated which was a down note but the staff tried to be incredibly accommodating and were very proactive with updates.

We stopped by double knot on a Friday and realized how packed it was. So my girlfriend and I decided to make a reservation and come back.

Once we did, we didn’t know where the host/hostess was until I decided to go in further instead of standing in line with other people.

I was quickly escorted to our table, and was explained thoroughly with the menu and whatnot. Our waitress was very professional and friendly at the same time. Also, the food was amazing! Though it can get pricey with a lot of food, I can confidently say that every single dish was worth the money!

We would definitely come back here for another time, perhaps with another couple or friends.
