American | Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia

We have been to Vernick's numerous times over the last few years and as in the past, the food was exceptional. My halibut was terrific and my wife's black sea bass was equally good. We had the eggplant and gnocci appetizers. My only criticisms was that we were seated downstairs, near where the staff cleans the glasses and found it to be a difficult area to sit and have a conversation due to the noise. In addition, our waiter, Michael seemed more preoccupied cleaning the wine glasses and other duties than looking after our needs. He never checked back on us to see how our food and we finally interacted with another server, who discussed our desert options. We've never left this restaurant with the feeling that we would not ever want that server taking care of us again, but we in fact did have that conversation. More

My husband and I decided to have an anniversary dinner at an authentic Italian restaurant since we had our honeymoon in Italy. The food at Casta Diva took us right back to the delicious meals we had in Rome. We enjoyed the bruschetta as an appetizer and shared the best Caesar Salad ever! My husband had the Peking Duck Breast and I had the Ricotta Gnocchi. Both were fresh, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. We will definitely be back on our next anniversary!! More

This was my second time at Harp & Crown and it delivered both times! The first was a more quiet night with a party of 2 and the second was a girls' night with 8 of us. The atmosphere was perfect for both occasions. Definitely very unique, cozy, and trendy ambiance. Plus the the food is AMAZING and it's small plates so it's great for sharing. Literally, everything we tried was delicious. The spicy soppresatta pizza, hamachi, and mac & cheese are definitely all must-try's! Good craft cocktails and wine list too! I will definitely be going back many times! More

Stellar Italian dishes. We've been many times and they never disappoint. Fresh, handmade pasta, inventive flavor combinations, truly talented with fish and seafood. Make sure to share a dessert even if you think you don't have room. A friendly, leisurely dining experience that makes for a memorable evening. Anything with truffle is a standout. It's BYO, so hit the deli or liquor store first if you want drinks with your meal. More
