French American | Northern Liberties, Philadelphia

The food was excellent, and while we were a little late for our reservation (called ahead to let them know), we couldn't help feeling rushed by our server. He was very knowledgeable about the menu but in a condescending way. After we complimented him on his knowledge of the sparse chalkboard menu, it seemed he couldn't help but mention that he feels his hard work is rarely compensated. We all work or worked in restaurants at some point in our lives and we understand but the comment definitly set a tone for the rest of the meal. We were there on a Tuesday and were excited to enjoy our meal that came so highly recommended. We ordered around 10 items and asked that our food be coursed in a few waves so we could enjoy our time together and not be overwhelmed with a table-tetris situation. Our server answered with a polite "no" and proceeded to fill our table up twice. The chalkboard menus require the staff to explain item. For instance it would list each menu item only by listing three ingredients, the server needs to explain each plating to get a full idea of the dish. It's a charming work around for a little place that clearly has an ever changing menu. Our server used it as another opportunity to make us feel uneasy. He asked something along the lines of "are you familiar with our menu, or would you like me to read you the whole thing," in a way that we all felt stupid by asking him to go over it (but we really wanted to know what we were ordering.) In spite of how truly inspired and delicious our meal was, we left with a bad taste in our mouthes. Without prompting, everyone in our party either raised eyebrows or commented about how our server had that "industry" attitude where we were made to feel like the customer is always dumb. It really sucks because we loved it so much and it's such a great addition to our neighborhood. I'd say there's always South Helm but that seems silly considering we live so close to this location.

A Neighborhood spot that never disappoints We brought some friends with us for dinner before a show. They loved it. Had never been or heard of it. Excellent antipasto selection, two seasonal and creative salads and of course some of the best pizza the city has to offer. Not sure why it doesn't get more recognition. Oh well, easier for me to go without a wait. Friendly and attentive service. More

Great homemade-style Italian food. The prices are VERY reasonable. A great place for a romantic yet reasonably priced date. Kind of hidden away in Northern Liberties but easy to get to once you find it. They have a parking lot they share with a high rise that fills up but there is plenty of street parking. Perfect restaurant to go before going to the movies in South Philly. They give you as much bread as you want! Homemade and great for soaking up the generous sauce with the pasta dishes. Also, BYOB. So, again, great value and kind of place you can afford to visit regularly. We’ll be back soon! More

The food and the service was very good- albeit the fish tacos needed some work , but the virtual golf was WAY overpriced for such outdated equipment. They charged us $55 per hour PER PERSON- for extremely weathered and worn out screens and technology. Wouldn't have minded playing on these screens if the price was not so shockingly high. $55 for the hour for up to four golfers wouldn't be bad. They should really re-think that or update their equipment. Or they were taking advantage that it was New Years Eve and gouging everyone. Also, charging a dollar for the "rocks" on a glass of scotch is ridiculous. More

Discover Northern Liberties

Philadelphia's up-and-coming Northern Liberties neighborhood is full of rich history, interesting artwork, and excellent dining options.

The neighborhood has an abundance of pizzerias and sushi restaurants as well, so no matter your cravings, you can find what you want. Of course, they have Philly's iconic cheese steak, too. Although the neighborhood is mostly residential, it's only a short walk from Center City and Philly's many historic sites. You can head over to Northern Liberties or "NoLibs" in the morning for a quick cup of coffee and a pastry, or you can visit a pub or pizzeria to relax after a long day of exploring the city.
