WOW! What a wonderful experience we had at La Veranda. We were in Philly for the weekend and just winged our plans and happen to find this restaurant on Open Table and made a reservation. Since it was close to our hotel we figured we’d give it a shot. Absolutely incredible from start to end. When we walked in and the hostess greeted us and took our coats and seated us right away. Beautiful ambiance with a pianist playing in the background. Wonderful server who was very attentive. We split a bottle of wine and each got a chicken dish. Absolutely delicious and very reasonably priced. We were blown away by the atmosphere and the price. I highly recommend to anyone in the area!

Food was good, not outstanding. It's not unlike quite a few restaurants that come up a bit short when it comes to standards that should befit the dish. Also the night we went was a frigid Thursday with one other table seated in the house. It was cold, but we got over that soon enough. What bothered me was our car could have stayed out front where we had parked it, and the fact that the restaurant was literally empty, they still charged for valet service when there was no need to move the car anywhere kind of got my goat. I found that to just be a little greedy on the restaurants' end.

One of the most romantic restaurants in the city is enhanced even more now with the addition of quiet contemporary piano. Not intrusive, yet a real plus. Songs from the Great American Songbook. When Ethan was finished for the evening and we were among the last few guests, our server, a shy young lady from the Ukraine,sat down and rattled off a few classical gems. Very charming, and well done. A very enjoyable evening.

Took my mom there for her 90th birthday celebration, booked on Opentable online. Although we arrived 20 minutes early, the manager met us at the door, knew who we were, and had our table all set up. We enjoyed a quiet lunch outside, watching boats go by on the Delaware. It was absolutely pleasant, especially since we were the only ones seated outside throughout the entire meal!

This was our third time at La Veranda and we’ve had great experiences each time. The food is authentic Italian. The service is impeccable. Right on the waterfront so fantastic views. Outdoors seating weather permitting. It’s a good value for what you get.

Recommendation: Check this gem out!

Out for an evening with friends. All had previously dined at La Veranda in the past. The food was no where near the quality we had all experienced in the past. None of us enjoyed our dinner, all ordered seafood. The sides, oh my, veggies overcooked and the few slices of potatoes, what was that? The staff was kind, attentive and friendly. Needles to say, the meal made for a very disappointing evening. Not sure what happened to the La Veranda of the past! The lack of patrons that evening may be a tell-tale sign.

The description states superior service which was laughable. lacked attention to customers. Eggplant was more breading than anything. Langostine were most expensive I’ve ever paid in the city. Lots more options for a better price and better food. Place has lost its touch and dated.

I had never been to this restaurant before. I wish that I had. Everything was what every restaurant should strive to accomplish. From the moment we walked in the door, nothing needed to change or could be improved upon.
While not taking anything away from the food, the service was stellar I only wish that other servers could see what professional service looks like and what it should be

There is nice view of the Delaware for Riverfront dining depending on where you were seated. The server was very accomadating and the prices were moderate. The only issue I encountered was the menu prices which appeared online did not match those on the restaurant menu's. They should update their website in order for patrons to be prepared with paying.

The food and ambiance were very good.
The service was mediocre .
The wine list was not updated, and the team was visibly annoyed when we did not get the right item.
The server was sweet, however lacking lots of knowledge on food/wine.
A bit disappointed .
