I got a no-shoe email, and I’m not sure why. I called the restaurant to tell them we’d be late, and they accommodates us. We are there and enjoyed it.
Amazing food. The chef menu is a must.
The lights are too dim - could not read the menu!!
Everything was amazing about this restaurant! The food was out of this world.
Double Knot is just amazing. One of my favorite restaurants anywhere. Good and service are top notch and the ambiance is fantastic
We love dining here, my only note is that service felt a bit rushed. We were in and out of a full tasting menu within an hour and 15 minutes.
This is more than a culinary treat, the izakaya experience engages all your senses. We chose the chef tasting menu -the dishes are brought to the table as they are ready from the kitchen, yellow tuna, skirt steak, robatayaki, tofu...(Do not hesitate to tell your server to slow the delivery). I would order everyone of the the items again. The cocktail selection is unique as well and our server was excellent
I highly recommend this PhIlly treasure
The food is amazing! Happy hour is great - you can order $5 plates to share. So fun!
Truly one of the most outstanding dining experiences I have had in any city. Everything was delicious, creative, and elegant. The ambiance was especially lovely, for any occasion one could imagine. Our server Lauren was also phenomenal, and provided great recommendations for us on an otherwise daunting menu! Can't wait to come back to Double Knot when I am in Philly next.
Food was amazing
Exceptionally delectable and unique menu.
The dark lighting and industrial fixtures added to the mysterious ambience.
All of the waitstaff were poised and professional, mostly notably Mannie. He contributed to making the evening extraordinary.
We look forward to our return visit.
First time at Double Knot and it was highly recommended to me by my friends. It did not disappoint. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the menu and were very attentive. Food was excellent and looking forward to our next visit.
The food and setting are great. The server was a bit exaggerated and over the top and talked too much. It took away from the experience. Also, there was a long lag time to get cocktails.
We visited Double Knot Saturday, after the Illusionists show at The Merriam. We walked into a very lively and noisy bar, restaurant area at street level but upon our reservation being acknowledged, we were escorted downstairs to a surprising dining room, bar, and cooking area. Our waitress, who has been with them since it opened, explained the menu, suggested a good wine and helped us make our 10 selections from the chefs tasting menu. Everything we were served was excellent. Dishes initially came out a bit too quickly, but after noting that to our waitress the pace slowed and was great. Service was excellent throughout. We had a wide variety of small plates and all were scrumptious.
Good food but very small portions. Really cool ambiance.
Great atmosphere, wonderful service, amazing meal! Can’t wait to return.
Food was incredible, great menu of traditional Japanese items. Some of the best sashimi I’ve had in the city. Service was great. The downstairs is a really cool vibe. Will definitely be back! One of our favorite Japanese restaurants downtown!
This meal was unforgettable! We shared the chef's experience with multiple courses and each item was better than the last. Most notable for me was the salmon sashimi and the black cod fried rice. Our server was great also. She was knowledgeable about the menu and very willing to explain the choices I made for my plates. I will definitely return!
My favorite restaurant in Philadelphia. Had a business meeting at Double Knot with associates from out of town and their words were "this is how you experience a city." Love this place.
Amazing as always!! Any time I am in town, I make sure to eat at Double Knot.
Great food,service,atmosphere, price. I did the chefs tasting and was way too full. A definite awesome value.
Must do tasting menu...well worth it! Each taste is different and an experience.
Yes, the food is very tasty...but, the portions are ridiculously small, even for tapas. How do you charge $4.00 for one tiny piece of eggplant for example? This place is “holding you up without a gun!” There are too many other.asian style restaurants that actually put food on your plate. Drinks are a rip off, too. It’s also dark, loud and dangerous too get downstairs- the candles are badly placed and we all thought we could easily miss a step and fall. It’s a scene but bring a lot of $ if you want to feel that you are actually full after you finish dinner.
Great food, cool ambiance, reasonable prices. Would definitely go again
Double Knot offered a fantastic dining experience. Everything from the atmosphere, the drinks, the service, and especially the food was perfect. We ordered the chef selected tasting menu which allowed us to try dishes from each part of the general menu. I can honestly say that every single dish, and there were many, was incredibly flavorful and cooked to perfection. This may have been one of the best tasting menus we’ve ever had. I highly recommend Double Knot and we can’t wait to come back.
Double Knit never disappoints. Excellent food start to finish. Can’t wait to go back.
It was a great experience. Still was a bit confused as to why we paid for 2 people for the tasting menu but could only choose menu items for 2.??? If I dined alone, i would be able to choose all my items. If my guest was sitting at the next table instead of with me, he would have chosen all his items.
This was very strange to me. I also am not a fan of being FORCED to order all menu items at the same time. We had no control over how quickly food came out and how fast we had to eat. We eventually had to ask our waiter to slow down the food service. It’s not customer friendly nor customer oriented. Your focus was totally internal rather than external.
Great food, drinks and ambiance! Love the Happy Hour.
Food and service was excellent. We did the tasting menu which was a fantastic way to enjoy the cuisine for our first visit there. Looking forward to going back again soon!
Had the tasting menu for two - amazing food but we did feel a bit rushed, as the food was coming out faster than we could eat it which is pretty atypical of a tasting menu experience. Truly outstanding food though!
Execellent food, service, and value. Had the tasting menu which I highly recommend.
Had a fantastic experience. Everything we tried was perfectly cooked and flavored. Highly recommended!
The food was very good and the server was quite helpful in ordering. Restrooms need to be cleaned more often
Everything we had was amazing. Very attentive server, very friendly and helpful. His suggestion: get 3-6 dishes each. Dish sizes vary, so ask for help when planning out your order. Standouts for our party: duck scrapple bao bun, chicken curry buns, black cod fried rice, and porkchop tonkatsu. A+. Am definitely coming back to try more stuff out!
We went as a group with a friend visiting from out of town. Had a delicious meal. The kitchen was slow on bringing out a few dishes but our server was attentive and made it right!
Love it! Food is dynamite! Would go every weekend if I could.
Amazing food and great service!!
Outstanding food and service, would highly recommend.
Best sushi in Philadelphia. Black cod fried rice was a highlight
The entire experience was outstanding! The edamame dumplings melted in your mouth. Our waitress Meg was so knowledgeable about the entire menu. Her recommendations were dead on. She was friendly and so attentive. The service staff never let you have an empty dish on the table. Impeccable service! Fantastic food! Beautiful ambiance! This restaurant is miles above any other!
