Cool spot in the basement. We did the tasting menu which is shared with the table. It was a fun survey. Drinks are expensive, but on par with the rest of center city. They had some interesting flavor combinations though.

I loved the walk down the floral smelling, candle-lit stairwell into the dining area. We had cocktail seating next to the bathroom which I would decline if offered. Our waitress was amazing. She recommended drinks based on our likes and she was spot on! We tried the chef's choice tasting menu; 10 plates. 2 of those raw. We had salmon, tuna, octopus and Chilean sea bass just to name some of what we got to try. Food was delicious! It felt like an eating experience that I want my friends and family to experience! I've been calling it tapas, Japanese style.

Food was not great for the price we paid. Shrim tempura roll was chewy with too much seaweed. The fried rice had an after taste of raw chilly powder. The Japanese chicken was dry. Chicken and swordfish skewers were excellent.

Second time back to Double Knot and this time chose the Chefs Menu! It was amazing and well worth the price. The only confusion part was it didn’t state 60$ per person for a 10 meal course. It’s proportioned for 2 people, after that was explained it made more sense. I suggest counter seating so you get to see everything being done. Service was amazing! The Tuna and avocado for first dish wash amazing if you like raw tuna. I would recommend to anyone who wants to try something new and exciting for this restaurant! Will always come when I can!

Great ambiance and outstanding food - excellent for a night out on the town, and to let your hair down. We ran into a few local celebs who were also dining there - low key, but high brow at the same time. Would highly recommend it for something different to do.

The food was perfection, the drinks were delicious, and the decor was lovely. The outdoors sign was a little small and we and another group were having a bit of trouble finding it but a quick call to the restaurant and they told us what was on either side of it. The staff was very friendly. It was busy so there was a bit of a wait even with our reservation but the food was so good it was worth it.

My girlfriend & I ordered the tasting menu. Probably should’ve just ordered from the sushi bar. We both didn’t like the food from the kitchen. It wasn’t anything special. Heard great thing about this place but I was pretty disappointed. Our wine tasted water down. Swordfish tasted old. Unagi don & crab shumai was not good. Brussel sprouts was burnt. The only thing we liked was salmon & ceviche appetizer & the Kobe beef was delicious.
I will definitely be back for sushi!

Unbelievable meal. I knew it was going to be good, but that meal was on another level! Everything was impeccable - the food, the service, and the space was beautiful. I could actually hear the people I was dinning with and did not need to shout. Do the chef's tasting!

Food is good, the sashimi is paper thin.
Pair it with a bottle of great junmai daiginjo and some yummy cocktails.. you may forget about the paper thin fish and order a bunch of Japanese tapas !
Service was good though and the separate basement space made it fun!

Phenomenal. I believe our waiter’s name was Dustin (and he was incredible). We opted to do the tasting, putting our fate in the hands of the chef. Easily one of the best decisions we made during this Philly trip. Every dish was a delight, the cocktails were superb, and the ambiance was trendy and energized. I’ll have dreams about this place.

I've popped in to double know a couple times for drinks, but this was our first dinner experience there and it was lovely! I made a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday and it was even better than I expected. The hostess sat us at a candle lit table in the basement. The vibe is a super cool speak easy/exclusive feel! Everyone we passed welcomed us as the hostess guided us to our table. Our server was informative, attentive and friendly. We ordered a few items and cocktails, everything was fantastic!

We really enjoying the full dinning experience, friendly staff and quality food!

Food was delicious and waiter was very helpful with recommendations. We were seated a little late for our reservation but Double Knot staff kept us up to date on when would be ready and provided an appetizer on the house which more than made up for any inconvenience. Will be back again to try other menu items and recommend as a great date spot or for special occasion.

Double Knot food in the winner here, served stunningly well by a small army of incredible servers. All in a magical mysterious space that's somewhere between a 19th Century opium den and a futuristic industrial hideaway. Impressive all the way around.

I am blown away every time I visit DoubleKnot. The food is delicious, the ambiance is cozy and unique, and the service is always outstanding! This is my go-to place in the city; the prices are very fair for the amount and quality of food and service you receive. I can't recommend Double Knot highly enough!!
