The food here was very average. The staff was lovely & it's pretty & comfortable. Great location near the hospital
Well, Chef was accommodating, allowed a switch of fettuccine with lemon risotto. Waitress forgot our appetizer. Slow despite only 1-2 others in restaurant. Ok for a hotel restaurant but wouldn't be my choice for dinner out. Worked out to be convenient before a nearby concert and we were staying at the hotel.
When. I booked the reservation through Open Table the manager contacted me to request a credit card to hold the reservation. This was understandable since it was commencement weekend. She was very polite and when I needed
Though conveniently located next to the Penn campus, this restaurant fails in almost every regard. The food was essentially Olive Garden food at fine dining prices. Understaffing left the service slow and inattentive (though certainly friendly). Paint was peeling off the walls next to our table and the bathrooms were disgusting. If you are staying at the hotel and want a nightcap in the bar, this would probably be fine. Otherwise, avoid this one. It's probably the single worst value in University City.
There were three of us - one entree was cold, one was warm but not hot and the chicken piccata had no taste. We did send the cold one back. It was hard to get the waiter's attention to send the food back. I will not return.
I don't typically leave negative reviews but the quality of the good was disappointing - quite salty and we had to send the risotto back. The wait person was attentive and helpful. Too expensive for what we got.
Hope things improve ...
Food was delicious but some dishes like the pasta were extremely small and some of us left hungry.
The food comes out fast but service was very slow. The taste of food was good but not worth the Monday. Sides were $8 and we received 4 asparagus stems - ridiculous!
Ice tea is from a mix! Yuck! McDonalds has fresh brewed .
It's typical hotel food / was disappointed based on reviews I read.
Hard to carry on a conversation here... the acoustics make it difficult to enjoy your friends.
Really excellent handmade pasta and a great wine list. We dined here because we had tickets for the Annenberg Center across the street. It's a little pricey but you can't beat the convenience.
