Didn't have the best table, but chef made up for it by accommodating my menu changes. Food very good and waitress mice.

The food and variety are very good. Price fixed went up to $40 or $50 p.p. For appetizer, entree and dessert so it’s not “cheap” by any means. They really rushed us Sat night- in and out of there in one hour. We like it here but I would have preferred a little more time between courses.

Love Entree have been many times. I was disappointed that one of the specials was 86'd before I was able to order (Veal/Lobster Special). However service was great and the fried oreos are phenomenal.

The prefix menu was great, the food had great flavor. The price was slightly higher than expected, but considering it was valentine’s day....was expected, even for a byob. The service was good; however, the waitress was accelerated, the experience felt rushed. Overall, the food, the restaurant and the atmosphere were pleasant.

Valentine's day is always overpriced, but $75/person is extortion for 3 mediocre courses. We didn't know that there was such a huge markup premium for the day and were less than impressed with the food and especially the price gouging.

Entree is a nice place where to have food curated in details, at you can bring your own wine, which helps the check. The food is good, there are few choices but they all have detail that makes them different from what you would do at home. Very noisy if you happen to have a group dinner next to you

The food was very good but they crammed everyone in so I could barely breathe and it was so loud I had to shout to talk to the person next to me. I made a reservation for 5 people and they squeezed us into a table for four. We I asked the hostess for a bigger table she said no. Not acceptable for this kind of money. I will definitely NOT be going back to Entree, not will I recommend it to anyone. It ruined our night out and I had guests from out of town. You can not pay these kind of prices and screw up the experience of dining.

Such a delightful find! Tiny on space but big on great taste this neighborhood Gem is just Delish! It's a high energy close knit environment, and at the same time very enjoyable even if "Sardinian" (Think the tin! (: ) in space.
My companion had the Arugula salad that was perfectly dressed and delightfully balanced with sweet/bitter and salinity, I had the dragon shrimp with a glaze that had just the right heat. Her Monkfish won the entree prize over my chicken with lobster. The crustacean's tiny tail was way too overcooked, if attractively presented, and that took away from the overall pairing of bites with the outstanding sauce. Desserts included their fried oreo and Lemoncello cake, both good, the later clearly more elegant. Great service throughout the evening really made it a delight, we'll be back!

Food presentation- a feast for the eyes
Food taste - the layering of flavor- chef & owner really takes thought into how each ingredient complements the creation
Food Portion- perfect
Food $ - love the prefix and even a la carte

Special personal notes- owner/chef, Kevin. Came out to our table just to make sure what the special request of a guest. Polite and very accommodating.
Thank you, Kevin and your team. We will be returning.

This was a cute spot for a date night and a good value for restaurant week. I found some of the dishes to be more sparing than others, but that is the nature of more expensive dishes. The dessert was phenomenal, especially the limoncello cake. Service was very attentive, but we felt we couldn't just sit and enjoy the moment because we knew they were trying to turn tables quickly. We were in and out in an hour, which left us searching for another place to spend some time before calling it an evening. That felt annoying in the moment and would detract me from coming again unless I knew I didn't want to linger. However, it was a good experience overall.

I stumbled upon Entree BYOB during Philly restaurant week, their menu looked very appealing plus it's BYOB (win win). I was pleasantly surprised! The food was delicious, everything that my friend and I ordered was phenomenal. The waiter was hilarious, very attentive, and friendly. All of the sauces that were on the food were delicious, made me want to ask for some to take home. Overall, I would definitely recommend it!

I guess the only problem here was that we went on restaurant week, and a very small restaurant turned into patron on patron packed and stacked so tight, that not only were you involved in the next tables conversations but if you dare needed to get up for any reason, so too did the neighboring tables. Very uncomfortable. Perhaps it’s better on not such a popular week? I would hope.

Service was attentive but lacking just the same because of the over crowding. For instance, once seated there was literally no way to even notify the waiter, without screaming, that we had a birthday at our table. So take it for what it is I guess. Still a bummer.

Now the food? Wow. Simply amazing. Honestly the grilled Heart of Romaine appetizer was so good, I literally did not want it to end. My girlfriend and her father both enjoyed the Wild Style Dragon Shrimp - perfect blend of heat and sweet.

The Tapenade Pistachio Crusted Branzino was made better by sitting on top of a zucchini pancake... so so good. My girlfriends Pork Tenderloin top with Crabmeat was an interesting pairing but was amazing good eating. Her father’s chicken plate was plentiful to the point where the back end of his meal was boxed and carted home.

Desserts.... whattttt!

Two fried Oreos with French vanilla ice cream were immediate home runs. Being Italian, I opted for the Nutella Creme Cannoli with Butterscotch Whipped Cream... again... why did it have to end?!?!

Overall, I’d definitely return and hopefully the conditions won’t be some extreme in terms of diners literally sitting on top of each other. The food was just too good not to give it another go!

Enjoy and Bon appétito!

Food was excellent! All five of use cleaned our plates. We went before a show - the fixed menu was super efficient, but we didn't feel rushed. Reservations for 6:15, finished three courses by 7:35. It's a small space, so you are a little cramped and it's a bit noisy, but not an issue for us.

I was lucky to get a reservation for 4 for 7pm on a Saturday. I initially was concerned about how tiny the room was, but it actually ended up being fine. Food was exceptional with a la carte plus 2 prixe fix options. The quality and creativity of the food pushed any thoughts of how packed it was out of my mind. BYOB! Brought a few bottles of wine! Service was excellent. One of my girlfriends got the wrong dish. The waitress miss heard her, but she got her correct meal replaced in about 5min or less. Would definitely recommend for food quality and attentiveness of the staff. Great atmosphere and a fun night!

My husband and I had a great experience at Entree until the end of our meal when we were basically kicked out of the restaurant. We had 815 reservations and sat down on time. We ordered apps, entrees and a dessert. Right away I felt like we were being rushed as our entrees came out before we were done our apps. We finished our dessert and paid the bill. It had only been an hour and I wanted to finish my last glass of wine when a rude waiter came over to our table and told (not asked) us we had to leave because another couple was waiting. I was completely taken aback as it had only been an hour that we had been there and we paid over a hundred dollars for this meal. My husband and I drove into the city from the suburbs and were looking forward to a nice night out away from our three young kids only to be rushed out of the restaurant after an hour of dining. We will never go back! There are much better and more friendly byobs in the city!

Not sure why but the server decided we would want the fixed price menu. When I asked about the regular menu for our party of 12, his answer was dopey and he reluctantly gave us the regular menu.
The food was ok. Disappointing as we’ve been there before and had a much better meal.
Finally the menu was different than the one on line which is a nerve tap for me. Waiter seemed indifferent when we mentioned the website menu issue.
Will go elsewhere next time. There are too many other options.

This has always been a favorite. We had our 8 month old with us and he started to act up a little and the waiter could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We had to get our food to go because he was starting to lose it, but even when we ate it at home, it was amazing. Thank you
