Valentines date night.

Great ambience, decor and the right level of lighting (for those seeking a romantic atmosphere). Our server was very friendly and provided succinct descriptions of their diverse selection of dishes. Only disappointment was that there was no danceable music afterwards as in my past visits.
Would definitely return!

Food wasn't too flavorful. Brought out the wrong pasta order for my guest. Service was just okay. Nothing to write home about. Was actually really excited to try this restaurant, but ended up very disappointed.

Bottomless brunch deal was great. Brunch dishes (the table ordered the pastas) were okay. Our group was seated in the back so it felt dark compared to a window seat.

The food is always great here, and the service usually is too. The noise level can be high though on a Saturday night. All those glass windows! We were happy we had dined early because our table for 3 was positioned between 2 gigantic parties and by the time we finished dessert we could hardly hear each other across the table.

First time, first review. Very pretty, open and relaxing atmosphere. Server was very attentive despite having many large parties around her at the end, food came out promptly for appetizers, every single dish was delicious especially mussels, eggplant and branzino. Bread and water were never empty and the wine recommendation was great. Will be coming back here again ASAP as this visit didn’t even come close to breaking the bank like we thought it would, with 3 apps, 2 entrees and a bottle well under $150.

Went there with friends after catching movie at Ritz. Varied menu, good food, and excellent service. We shared a vegetable antipasto that was excellent. I had the rack of lamb and cheese cake for desert...very good and reasonably prized. We liked they were open early and so near the movies.

Great food, great service from the minute you walk through the door! My friend had the restaurant week special which I tasted and was delicious. I love the whole fish so that is what I ordered and it never disappoints- crispy skin, moist meat, beautiful flavor. I also tried the eggplant salad with pomegranate arils and loved it. This is one of our favorite Center City restaurants. If we lived closer, we’d come more often, but each time is a treat. Even the drinks (at the bar it while dining) are perfectly made. And the decor puts you in the middle of the Med! Wonderful in every way!

The restaurant week menu was underwhelming, so we went with the regular menu and were very pleased with our meal. Had been meaning to try the place for years and glad that we finally did! Was good during a rainy night in the winter but am eager to back during the summer with the indoor/outdoor bar.

The food was really good and the atmosphere was nice. Only problem was that we got bottomless mimosas and after the first few it was clear that they were not putting much champagne in them and we were drinking pure orange juice. When we brought this up with the waitress, she gave a lot of attitude and stormed off without giving us a chance to respond. The waitress also asked us if we wanted dessert even though we all did the restaurant week menu that included dessert.

My experience here was interesting to say the least. My friend and i came here for restaurant week and I’d say i was highly disappointed. We had the chicken and pork entree and due to certain food allergies we were limited to what we could eat which was understandable. After waiting almost 45 min for the food to actually come out we both felt like the amount of money we spent was not worth the way this tasted. The chicken and pork was so bland we barely ate it all. The wine was probably the best option of the night.

The ambiance was fair, but the food was really underwhelming. Bland, overdone fish with the benefit of being very overpriced. There are many better places in this part of the city.

My friend and I enjoyed our meal. Service was excellent from the moment we walked in (my friend arrived before me. I'm always a few minutes late.) The food was wonderful. We enjoyed a movie afterwards as there are several in the area. We will definitely enjoy another lunch or dinner at this wonderful restaurant.

We went on a weekday for Restaurant Week lunch. Loved my salad, the chicken dish was fine though not memorable, the two dessert bites very good. Timing was paced well. Server very good. Price very reasonable for the special week's lunch; don't know about regular lunch pricing.
