You have to try this place! Amazing food and service. Our server Danielle made the most awesome food and drink recommendations. I know there are a lot of great places to go in Philly, but this place is a MUST!!! The oysters on the half shell are delicious, the burrata was to die for and the mixed meat grill was perfectly cooked (the pork was exceptional). The perfect finish was a glass of port with the chocolate lava cake. The prices were more than fair. Cannot day enough about what a great restaurant this is. Put this restaurant on your list!

Extraordinary dining experience. For out of town visitors seeking an extraordinary meal with individualized attention and professional service this the place! The food is marvelous and the music a suitable accompaniment. We only regret this venue is not in our home town of LA. A special shout out to our server Danielle who went above and beyond to assist us. Bravo Fine Palate.

Expensive, low quality, bad service, dirty (don't look at the banquette cushions), not safe for people with celiac or gluten sensitivity, though they advertise having GF options.

Before ordering, I told the server that I have celiac, and confirmed menu items that were strict GF. I ordered 2 of them and confirmed again that these would be prepared separately from any wheat.

The artichoke fritters were served, battered. At a gut level, they just didn't look right to me, so I confirmed again that the item was GF. Server confirmed.

Two minutes later, she came back to retract this - the wrong batter had been used. Fortunately, I had not yet eaten them.

She offered to comp me a new order of the same item. I declined. She offered to comp me something else, so I got the burrata. Of course, it appeared on my bill anyway, and I had to get it corrected.

Would not visit here again or recommend. I ordered a Jameson and water. My friend ordered a glass of wine. My drink came and was so watered down, it barely had a flavor. They told my friend that they were out of his wine choice. They were also out of his 2nd choice. He then ordered a Jameson and they had to run to the liquor store bc they were out. Our food was below standard. Over cooked and flavorless. After we had ordered drinks and food, our waitress gave us the drink and food specials?! Overall a poor experience.

This is an interesting small venue. We went for Tapas before a show and the food was very good. Menu was eclectic but with a variety of small plates perfect for pre-theater dining. Close to theaters and parking.

Fine Palate is a gem. The menu has something for everyone, but I’d recommend asking for the chef to just make a few courses.

The setting is comfortable and perfect for a relaxed dinner. They keep things simple. There’s no wait staff hovering over you every minute of the meal. Drinks, like the food, can be ordered from the menu or you can just let them get creative.

Will definitely be back.

I had dinner last night and was impressed. The atmosphere was perfect for my date. The staff did an awesome job making sure I was happy with my drinks and food when they arrived. My steak was cooked perfectly and was one of the best steaks I’ve had in the city. We arrived a little late but the happy hour deals also looked good

I took a date here, and I couldn’t be more satisfied. The ambiance is both cool but relaxed with an excellent location. Although they didn’t have as far as a tequila selection goes, that simply didn’t matter. The menu was diverse and expertly executed. I will definitely be back. Thanks for making look so good!

We went for brunch before a show. The food was fantastic, and the service was good. There were only two tables occupied (including ours) so the service was a bit slow. However, overall, we had a nice time.

I ordered the steak and I asked it to be cooked medium well and the outside was charcoal burned and the meat was extremely dry. For many decades I have always had my steaks cooked this way and this is definitely one of the first times that my steak came out this poor. Please see the attached picture.

Excellent, intimate experience. Great bartending and service. If you leave without trying the dumplings drizzled in Sichuan chili oil, you are doing yourself a great disservice. The mixed grill is terrific. The burrata, made in house, is wonderful. We will return!

There are interesting selections at this restaurant such as sautéed pea leaves. Vegetarians can get a meal here and there are small plates, appetizers and regular sized entrees that provide a broad selection of the amount of food you want to eat. My wife had the kabouci squash soup and artichoke fritters. I had sautéed shrimps with the sautéed pea leaves. Another person has roasted cauliflower and the soup, but the cauliflower was not the traditional cauliflower but small florets with stems. The last person had linguini with clams. All very beautifully prepared.

This was our first visit to Fine Palate. It was a very mixed bag. The location was great - close to theaters. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately the actual service and food left a lot to be desired. We ordered the dumplings, the salmon, and the mixed grill. The dumpling were just plain weird. They had a very viscous constancy which was unpleasant for me, although my husband thought they were fine. The salmon was perfectly cooked and very tasty. We were told that the mixed grill consisted of flank steak, buffalo, and a pork chop for $40. We got a very delicious pork chop, two thin, overcooked slices of short rib, and a wine marinated piece of chicken that was rather dry and not very tasty. There was also an issue with the check, which had to be presented three times before it was correct. With so many dining choices in Philly it is hard to recommend this place, but the few flashes of brilliance are enough for me to say that I would give it another try!

Very small portions and pricey. Messed up order so our friend dined well after we were finished. Food was very good but again not enough.
Overcharged us on bottle of wine but quickly adjusted bill with apology.
Waitress very pleasant but disappeared for stretches of time. No bread served until after dinner.
