My finance and I went here for restaurant week and it was delicious! The food was unique and tasty, and our server was very attentive and informative. I got the dragon shrimp and the seared tuna. Both were amazing. Can't believe we waited this long to try it out! We will definitely be back.

My dining companion and I truly enjoyed our meal. We were warmly greeted and seated promptly. We were pleasantly surprised to hear about some blackboard additions that were also included with the Restaurant Week menu. Our server excellently described some offerings that we asked about and checked on us regularly. Our 3 course dinner choices were fabulous. We recommend the lamb "pops" and the tuna. It is an intimate space and so can be a little loud, but oh the food is enjoyable.

We stopped in for dinner before seeing a show. We thoroughly enjoyed everything we tried including dragon shrimp, clam chowder, cheese plate, arugula salad, scallops, pork loin, short ribs and lamb chops. The creme brulee was also really good. Our server was attentive and informative. It is a bit of a tight squeeze though since the restaurant is very small.

Food was delicious. Had the duck, the lamb chops. The salads were delicious as was the bread and the afagato dessert. There needs to be a light for safety reasons outside the restaurant and a coat check or someplace to hang outerwear when it is raining. Will revisit in the summer as space is small and potentially dangerous in the dark.

Food was excellent. However, we were rushed to leave from the moment we sat down. Less than three minutes there, we were told we had to order because they were “very busy and had a lot of reservations” that night. We both had the prix fixe menu and were upset that we were forced to rush through a 4-course meal. I wish I could give this restaurant a better review (as I mentioned earlier, the food was excellent), but they need better time and service management.

Tried the $40 prefix and husband had $50 prefix which included that evening’s special (veal and lobster). Courses were brought out timely and piping hot. Every single thing we ate was delicious and the prefix menus were a great value for the quality of the meal!

Really good meal from start to finish. Decided to go with $40 prix fixe and it didn't disappoint. The wedge salad was terrific. I had the duck entree and it was done perfectly medium rare and crispy on top. The tuna entree was enjoyed as well..done very rare. Everyone enjoyed their desserts..fried oreos, limoncello cake, and ice cream dessert with biscotti, salted caramel, and a shot of espresso.
Our server Kim was terrific!

We had 9 people in our group. We were celebrating two birthdays. A few in our party were late. Our server Kim was superb she didn't pressure us to order. She was pleasant and perky!
Everyone loved their food. Just a little on the chilly side, but they did turn the heat up.
Strongly Recommend Entree for dining!

Another phenomenal meal at Entrée. The food is superb. It is creative, delicious and well presented. It never disappoints. The server, whom we have had several times is fantastic. She is responsive, pleasant, knowledgeable and friendly. She kindly moved our table which was too close to the front door and very cold as soon as one opened up. The space is very tight which may turn some off but the food is so good it can be tolerated.

Our table of 5 enjoyed our dinner and would go back. I personally loved the duck entree. The restaurant was good with allowing substitutions. Two caveats: It was very noisy, making conversation from one end of the table to the other very difficult . We requested separate checks and were assured that everything would be clearly demarcated. When the bill came we all figured out what we owed ( several times) and were informed that we still owed $18 dollars. It was too loud to work out what caused the discrepancy so some of our party paid extra. Also the entranceway was poorly lit and one of us fell down on a little step. The food must have been awfully good if we'd go back with all the problems I've enumerated. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful.

Great small space for intimate dining. And it's BYOB!

The food was excellent -- every dish was fresh and tasty and nicely plated. Our server (JT) was terrific -- helpful with suggestions, quick to bring us water and our meals, all done with a wry sense of humour.

The sole drawback was a large table of young women (likely a bachelorette party) that was insanely noisy. It was impossible to escape the din.

Love the food, love the staff (cooks, servers). We will be back.

Arrived on time and were seated immediately. Actually we had our choice of tables since it was a Wednesday evening at 6pm! Perfect time to go to dinner in the city if you want to have a conversation over dinner....
Waitress was sweet and very attentive. Food was outstanding! There were 4 of us and everything we ordered was a hit. Also, it is a BYOB that accepts credit cards and has no corkage fee. Love it. Our new favorite place.

As always, food and service were wonderful. Only complaint is that I reserved and confirmed the table by the window because it is a small space and my husband is 6'7" and feels badly when cramping other patrons. The only table that he fits in is the table by the window (this has nothing to do with his comfort - we always sit in the back of theaters, etc. so as to not intrude on other people's experiences). We arrived and were seated at another table. I asked about my confirmed reservation and was told that they needed to acommodate a party of 6. I'm not sure what that had to do with my reservation, but I wasn't happy. Of course, the party behind us arrived and they were extremely cramped and kept knocking into my husband's chair to try and find room that didn't exist. They weren't rude, but they were definitely uncomfortable. We usually avoid small places unless we can confirm a roomy table for everyone's enjoyment. If you don't have a physical need for special acommodations, this is a perfect restaurant.

It is such a cute restaurant! The chef came out to say hi! I had the special....cod over new england clam chowder...real chowder! so good. I was visiting my daughter who goes to Temple University and she enjoyed her dinner also to the max! The waitress, Kim, was on top of everything...very sweet. It's a fun, happy, very busy place. Don't forget to make a reservation. I highly recommend Entree.
Cheers,

Do not come to this restaurant for a quiet, intimate evening. It is a small, noisy restaurant
that is usually a packed house most nights. You will be bumping elbows with the neighboring tables, but that could be fun. The food is innovative and the portions are massive! Give it a try, just don't be surprised if you make new friends with the table next to you.

Excellent kitchen, fresh ingredients, well-conceived, well-seasoned and well-prepared cuisine. For our table, mainly seafood dishes, all excellent. Service very friendly and properly paced. Two nits--(1) no reason to intermittently clear a table of four when not all diners have finished, and (2) no reason to bring a check until it is requested when the room is almost empty. Will definitely return to this comfortable, casual, affordable BYOB in the future.

We (wife & I) chose Entree because we wanted a BYOB within walking distance. We decided not to bring any wine, had cocktails at home. We didn't know that Entree also offered a Prix Fixe dinner, but we chose dinners from the menu. The appetizer and meals were creative and delicious. The service was great.

This is a small place tucked away in the middle of a block on South Street. The interior is comfortable, well lit and, as is the case of many Philadelphia gems, cozy. Our first visit, we met our server Kim and her helper Rebecca who greeted us warmly and graciously. We were offered recommendations regarding the menu and the specials. Although we didn't try it, the filet mignon cheesesteak with Maine lobster on a fresh Philadelphia roll looked amazing. We asked about the Dragon shrimp and were given a sample of the sauces, one of which contained Scotch bonnet pepper that proved a bit too much for our taste buds; the sample was appreciated nonetheless. The calamari appetizer and the grilled Romaine set the stage for the entrées. The latter was the best I had ever ordered with a melange of flavors and textures. We decided to share the lamb lollipops and the Cornish hen. Both were excellent in their own way and the reduction sauces were perfect complements. For dessert, the cannoli was fresh and crunchy. Nothing worse than a soggy cannoli. The food was excellent, the experience courtesy of Kim and Rebecca outstanding and we will return with another bottle of wine for an anticipated and enjoyable evening. Kevin, chef owner, did come out to greet us and was very gracious to ask if we had enjoyed our experience. Indeed we did and thank you.

This is my third time at Entree BYOB restaurant. My first time here was last year during restaurant week and loved it so much came back again with my friend few months after. But I haven't been to Entree in a while and noticed that some things have changed when I went this year..such as the Menu and the table bread which I was a bit disappointed since I was really looking forward to like my previous experience here. Only reason why I would return is the service is absolutely AMAZING! The staff is super friendly and accommodating but wish they brought back some menu items like the ravioli and had the previous bread, not this plain white bread.
