Service it was very slow and food horrible.
We will be back
Pre theater dinner. Close to the venue, excellent service and great food. Lived being downstairs for dinner. Very cozy and intimate.
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.
Great Food and ambiance. Exceptional casual dining experience
Had a wonderful evening with my wife. Perfect spot for a date or if you want to casually drink at the bar. Food was exceptional, service was very accommodating. The chef was amazing had a great conversation with him and he spoke a lot about his background and how he worked all around the globe with world class chefs
Happy hour drinks followed by an awesome ribeye! I'll be back!
The food at Fine Palate is absolutely amazing! If you're a foodie, I highly suggest trying this place out. Vince is a wizard!
The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere where you can dine and enjoy your time with friends and family.
cant say enough...food, service, atmosphere ..... awesome!
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.
Great meal as always!
Had a great experience. Food was great service was friendly and the atmosphere is sexy. A definite must.
One of the best steaks i've had and very attentive staff! You'll enjoy it too!
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
All I can say is wow, this place was stellar everything from the staff to the food and service, hidden gem for sure, definitely plan on this place being in my normal rotation 👌
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!
WOW. This place is amazing. The menu is excellent, there is a something for everyone. Great food (fried oysters and agnolotti pasta are out of this world!) and drinks, extremely attentive service and overall relaxed and pleasant ambiance.
We had a great time. Chef Vince produces exceptional food and the service was top notch. Well done!
Our Neal was amazing!!! The foo is delicious and the service is great. I definitely will be coming back to dine here. They take classic dishes and put a spin on it, love !
A neighborhood gem! Combination of sophisticated food and a fun and warm atmosphere. Always a great meal and a lovely time. Vince and Courtney make you feel as though you are dining in their home. A must!!
Always a favorite spot to catch up with friends and enjoy delicious food. Tried the salt & pepper squid (try it!) And favorites always include the cocktail hour oysters!
Thanks for another great dinner & drinks with friends
(One friend is vegan - had some nice options for her too)
5 Stars all the way! Outstanding food and Amazing staff! Cant wait to go back. Great experience
I eat here all the time and it’s always amazing! Service is great, the restaurant is very clean, it’s a comfortable spot with a good environment, and the food is beyond delicious! One of my fav restaurants!
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.
they wanted to bring our appetizer after our entree.
the gnocci tasted like it came from and can and was way too salty
didn't bring a plate for the oyster shells
didn't bring butter or olive oilfor the bread the pathetic bread
who wants to watch The Bad Seed in a restaurant???????
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.
Food was cold and not so good. Service was slow as just one server.
Hostess/waitress is amazing. Always great food and pleasant ambiance. I would just change the video on the giant projector to something more fitting.
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.
The food was horrible. I would not recommend it to anyone. Will not be back.
Great for brunch, especially if you like to share lots of different smaller entrees. $5 mimosas on Sundays..
We went post-theater during Restaurant Week for the $35 special. We arrived at about 5:45pm (party of 8). We were seated promptly. From a service standpoint, things went downhill from there. Our drink order was taken but it took quite awhile for them to be delivered. The Corona was warm. It was replaced but the second bottle was not much colder. We asked a couple of questions about items on the menu and were given several incorrect answers. The soup offering was changed twice. Nevertheless, we ordered our three courses. The salads were quite good and the potato soup was tasty. There was no bread offered. The pasta course was homemade gnocchi in a tomato sauce and it was exquisite. Still no bread. I asked for a glass of wine to be delivered when the entree came. Everyone in our party ordered short ribs bourguignon. It was a nice portion served over wide noodles. However, if red wine ever touched the short ribs, I'd be shocked. There was no sauce. Nevertheless, the short ribs were extremely tender and had good flavor. My glass of red wine, even after asking four times, didn't show up until I was nearly done with my entree. When the entrees got served, three slim pieces of toasted bread were delivered - not quite enough for 8 people. While the staff was very nice, the service delivery left quite a bit to be desired. Dessert was a nice slice of cheesecake that all enjoyed. Overall, go for the food, which was excellent, but be prepared for spotty service.
The wait staff was very inattentive. They forgot to put in our orders for drinks multiple times. We had to wait 30 minutes for our starters which were soup and food. The food is so good, it’s a shame dining experience wasn’t up to par
Very nice ambiance, good service. Pricey but the food was gourmet however the soup came out a little cold. Smaller servings.
Came here for restaurant week and had a great time! Food was delicious and our waitress was very nice and personable. The restaurant was very clean and had a great atmosphere.
Great spot, especially pre and post theater. Eclectic and delicious menu and very friendly staff. Unique and cozy seating.
My wife and I reserved a table here, mostly because of the 1000 pt offering and its close location to the Merriam Theatre. I will definitely return here, regardless of the point offerings. The food was wonderfully prepared, with a touch of class in its presentation. We started with fresh made burrata cheese and tomatoes - simply prepared and delicious. Then I had an imported Japanese pork chop that was incredible. And My wife enjoyed a chicken Parmesan with homemade pasta. The mix of food styles is interesting, but the taste of each was on the mark. We will surely be back!
