Disappointed in our last visit. zit could be because it was the day after Valentine's, and the chef may have been too tired, or a substitute chef was working that night, but at least one of the main dishes was completely not up to par: the salmon entree was not very tasty, and perhaps (?) to overcome that, the sauce was horribly horribly oversalted, almost to the point of making the dish inedible. In addition, the cabbage served with the salmon was TOUGH.
This used to be our favorite restaurant, but given our experience this time, I am at least somewhat wary about coming back.
Fabulous food and wonderful service in a cozy lovely house. What more can you ask for?
Just first rate. Wonderful experience and worth every bit of what we paid.
One minor problem--the weather was bad, the restaurant was deservedly crowded and we had to wait almost 15 minutes with no place to sit. I don't know what the answer would be, though.
Came here for Valentine's Day and had a wonderful time. The menu was creative with some extra touches to make things special for the holiday. The cauliflower bisque, lobster risotto, venison and short rib were particularly outstanding though every dish was really delicious. The fact that you bring your own wine makes this a particularly great value.
Food and service was great. However, portions were a bit small for the price.
Beautiful, small restaurant. Excelllent service and food was so delicious!! They do vegetarian and vegan food upon request !
A great place for special occasions !
Mica continues to impress. All 4 of us selected the special menu, "From Greece with Love," and were delighted with the outcome. The grilled octopus and lamb-based moussaka were both exceptional. We love the chef's thematic menus but the ala carte selections are compelling as well. Mica is without question one of Philadelphia's top restaurants!
Mica is one of the best restaurants around. The food is delightfully prepared, the perfect portion size, and always presented beautifully. This is an excellent restaurant for any occasion and a bonus that it’s a BYOB so bring your favorite bottle! The staff is amazing and always courteous and knowledgeable and offers spot on recommendations! You always leave happy!!! Thank you to all at Mica who make this such a wonderful dining experience!
This is a terrific restaurant. From the friendly staff when you enter, to the helpful waitstaff (little or no turnover), well prepared and unique menu. Bring your own wine. On-street parking or nearby lot.
We had a fantastic meal with wonderful service in a cozy environment!.
I would recommend this gem to anyone whether just enjoying interesting and delicious food to celebrating a special occasion or something in between.
The food was wonderful with 2 small exceptions. We had the tasting menu-the perfect amount of food. The brioche that came with the foie gras was burnt. Also, the noodles were hard, but my husband ate mine anyway. Very nice service. I would suggest reminding diners that it a BYOB when confirming the reservation.
Superb in every way!
Our new local favorite -- looking forward to coming back again!
We went for Tapas. They were at best just OK and were overpriced. We were disappointed. Mica usually does better.
