We had 15 people in our party. This was a huge office event for people on travel. The food was terrific! We tried a majority of items and all of them were delicious! However, the real find and the real star of the evening was Teddy. He was able to keep track of everyone’s drinks and meals and gave us all individual checks without fuss. He was charming, professional and so warm and friendly! His drink suggestions and food tips were spot on! This was the best time we’ve had thanks to Teddy!

Food served politely and quickly. Very noisy, but waitress said this us unusual, since a large noisy group came in unexpectedly. I got the duck/dumplings which tasted very good, but only about 6 to 7 slivers of duck (Did they run out?). Seemed more like an appetizer for $21.00. We moved to the bar, and by then the noisy group had gone . The bartender made excellent Choco martini, but showed little personality. She was not mean, just doing her job, nothing special. We will try another restaurant next time we go into city to see a show.

This was the first time we ate here. We had tickets at the Kimmel Center and wanted a place close to the theater. The restaurant is a little dark with a funky decor but we really enjoyed it. The food was delicious and the prices were very reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant for a great meal.

We were a party of four. Two of us had the shrimp scampi and our wives ordered several appetizers as a main course. Food was excellent as was the service. The bar/restaurant has a burlesque theater on the second floor and is just a block away from the Academy of Music, which is where we were headed after our meal.

Had dinner at Frankie Bradley's last night and everything was good.
My server NICK was the best, came back to the table a few times to see if I needed anything.
I had a few request for the chef and NICK took care of it.
The salad was really good. The meatball sandwich was very good. The Mojito was made to perfection.
It did get alittle noise later on but it was manageable.
If you go you can make a reservation ....and ask for NICK. Guarantee good service.

We met our party here after the Army Navy football game...ambiance was great, service was great, drinks were spot on, and the bill for 10 didn't break the bank. This is our third year for the game in Philly, and we've been to this restaurant each year...we'll go back again!

Very loud and food was ok. Service was good. We made a reservation the day before the Army NAvy game. Down an alley, easy walk from Doubletree. There were four of us. Maybe for a very young crowd this atmosphere and quality of food would work. Very average and very loud.

My friends and I stopped in for dinner before the show at the Academy of Music. The Silent Whisper cocktail was quite good so much so we all had two. The server was very attentive and when we mentioned we were going to a show we got an additional discount. I had the chicken Parmesan which was good the chicken was a little tough. My friends got the shrimp scampi and really liked it. The apps were also very good we split the meatballs and cheese fries.

Tucked away on a quiet block of Chancellor Street, but what a find! My wife's sea bass was done perfectly, and the meat on my ham shank melted off the bone. The kitchen shows a sophistication you might not expect from the unpretentious setting. The bar downstairs was boisterous at 7:30 on a Friday night, but the upstairs was still quiet. I suspect that changes later in the evening.

Don't let looks deceive you. This "hole in the wall" makes some of the best food I've had in Philly. My mushroom tarte and french onion soup were excellent and my friend nearly licked her plate clean with the Oscar Grouper. Super convenient to the local theaters. We'll be back!

Good quick comfort food, but not great. The meatballs, which seem to be a specialty of the house, were good but not amazing. They forgot to bring an appetizer. Otherwise, the service was good and friendly. Nice selection of beer.
