Rouge is always wonderful. I hadn't been there for a while. The menu is rich and varied. The burger is phenomenal, usually gruyere cheese. The only negative was the noisy work truck doing repairs in Rittenhouse Park. We were seated outside on a beautiful day aand the truck cut into out enjoyment. More

Italian | Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia

Scarpetta's spaghetti was exactly as good as claimed by many yelpers, the sea bass was also spectacular. My sister and I went for a celebration on her job promotion, since I listed celebration on Opentable when I booked, the waiter came with two sparkling wine. At first he said they were "on the house", however, later when we paid, we noticed that we were charged for the sparkling wine. I don't know how I feel about the incongruence there, however it didn't damage our food experience there. More
