We ended up really enjoying the place. I was very turned off at first because the hostess was quite dismissive upon our arrival. I thought I said loud enough that we were there for dinner, to which she hurriedly responded that they were all booked but we could sit at the bar. I said I had a reservation, to which she replied by asking for my name. I said as much, to which she rather rudely replied that they had two reservations with that name. Reservation was for Sept 15 @7pm. If she’s there the next time we show up, I’ll turn around and walk right out. Our server was very nice though. More

We ordered drinks, but then a couple of us were told the one on the menu wasn’t available “because the blue berries weren’t bought” which was a bummer because the drink sounded yummy and our last minute choice ended up not being very good. The food was very good though, with perfect portion sizes. And their desserts were amazing! More

The menu I had so many great choices and we love seafood so we split a Caesar salad and Bau buns and I had scallops and husband had the raw seafood platter. We also met the chef and both he and our waitress gave us a delicious dessert and the coffee was delicious too! Don’t miss this gem of a restaurant although the bar scene is quite noisy if you love good food executed to perfection and ending your meal with a really good cup of coffee and dessert this is the place! Also the wine try the Chardonnay called “Taken” at $30 a glass it is worth every penny! More

Contemporary American | Center City, Philadelphia

OpenTable does not make a big deal about declaring this being in a hotel and my instincts would have rejected it based on that alone. However, the menu was very diverse and appealing, as well as nicely priced so I gave it a try. The service (Bronicka??... apologies for not remembering our server's name completely) was SUPERB! Between her helpful suggestions, knowledge of the menu, overall friendliness and professionalism, she became a critical, seamless part of our great experience. The other table attendants (we had a party of 7) were great as well. The various dishes we had were enormous, leading most of us to need a take-home box. All were very satisfied. I went out on a food limb and ordered the Poutine (a dish originating from the Canadian province of Quebec consisting of French fries and cheese curds topped with a brown gravy)... rather interesting. The W&V has them with tater tots... I might have had more to say if it was regular french fries (likely less potato-ey), but it was worth the order. Great time, great food, great service! More

The charm of Volver is that it is in the Kimmel Center, and therefor really convenient for evening concerts. That said, it is a prime example of purveyors of small food: wonderfully styled plating with three bites on the plate. We are not fans of restaurants that pile the potatoes high and bury you with salad, but there is a happy medium where you feel that you are getting value for your dollar. Volver falls a bit short on that measure. Having recently eaten at a tapas restaurant in Washington DC it occurred to me that we got more food per plate there. Still, the room is nice, the large windows give you a feeling for the street outside, the food though small is well prepared and inventive and the service is eager. My steak, Kobe beef I was told, was nicely done and accompanied by just one of the smallest new potatoes I have ever seen (cut in half), three dots of a brown emulsion, a swash of beet puree on the plate, and a dot of a pickled relish. My wife's barramundi was well prepared. The pre-concert menu is a nice touch. More

Great thin crust, wood-fired pizzas and creative rifts on classic salads like a grilled romaine caesar and wood roasted beet. All very reasonably priced. Servers were friendly and fun. If we lived in Philadelphia we'd be regulars. More

Discover Center City

The whole world should knows that there’s more to the diverse dining scene of Center City than cheesesteaks and hoagies. Israeli, Mexican, Japanese and a melting pot of other cuisines are dished up daily in the shadow of the Liberty Bell. French bistros are becoming as commonplace as Italian delis. If you haven’t tried black truffle pizza, what’s stopping you? Whether it’s a cocoa-cured rack of lamb or a vegan wood-roasted carrot that you’re craving, Center City likely has it. Fine dining establishments and casual rooftop bars co-exist in perfect harmony, and top chefs collaborate rather than compete. By the way, the iconic cheesesteaks and hoagies aren't bad either.
