It was a small room with only tables for two - food was outstanding. Service was the best ever. Gave A red rose to my date at dinner’s end. It was a romantic setting with lights appropriately dimmed. Will go back soon! More

Contemporary American | Washington Square, Philadelphia

The money spent on renovating this space was well spent. Very clean, fresh feel with large windows that can be open in the summer. The upstairs turns into an open rooftop bar in warm months, too. There is an open concept kitchen where you can watch the executive and his team turn out plates. We ate the Prix Fix Valentine's menu and were very pleased with the 3 courses plus dessert tasting for the price. If nothing else, go to Maison 208 for the Butternut Squash soup. The scallops were cooked perfectly and served fennel dusted with Haitian mango and IPA hush-beignets. You need to taste them to understand the unique flavors that blend together so well. Our other courses were also tasty, but the desserts leave something to be desired. I may recommend having dinner and drinks at Miason 208 then walking to Capogiro for gelato. More

Discover Washington Square

The historical undertones are near palpable in Washington Square. Part of this strong local flavor includes the neighborhood cuisine, which is highlighted by the legendary Philly cheesesteak. Since its debut in the 1930s, this immortalized sandwich has been imitated and replicated across the country. However, there's no place to indulge in a food quite like its origin. Washington Square visitors will find that the local amalgamation of multiple culinary backgrounds has helped to create a neighborhood that's as diverse food-wise as it is culturally. From Italian trattorias to sushi cafes to pizza diners, there is no cuisine left untouched. Washington Square has a lot to offer to food lovers.
