This was our second time dining at Chef Alex's restaurant. We were eager to try out his newest dishes and ordered from both the rustic and tasting menus. Each dish was a delight. The flavors he creates and beautiful presentations make this restaurant a must! Chef Alex will make you feel as if you're his personal guest. The best of the best!

Very good dining experience. Food included foie gras, gnocchi, scallops and duck breast cooked just right. Alex, chef and host, was gracious and there to be sure we were having the best dinner. It all worked and we will return.

Superb dining — one of the best meals in greater Philadelphia.

The place is tiny but cozy. We were greeted by the chef/owner Eric, who explained the restaurant concept. He checked in with us throughout the meal, explaining the menu items, and discussing his passion for cooking.

That personal connection with the chef really enhanced a dining experience that would have stood on its own just based on the food. This was one of the best meals I’ve had in Philadelphia in the past year... and we were in Wayne. The food was fresh, the meals were inventive, and the plating was beautiful.

We dined at Vetri Cucina within a week of dining at At the Table. It wasn’t even close: the vibe, food, ambiance, and personal touch at At the Table blew Vetri away. And because it’s a BYOB the price is easy on the wallet for a first class meal.

Worth a trek out to the burbs.

Once more Chefs Tara and Alex shine. Did the a la carte menu tonight or (Chef Tara’s side). Felt comfortable and still respectful to the vision of the restaurant. Flavor was out of this world and I loved what they have been doing with the restaurant from new artwork to new menus... 5 stars chefs!!

On a side note... if you haven’t been to this restaurant and you love food or you just want to try something different. Don’t miss this place. Take the time, enjoy the meal, meet the chefs and go home satisfied and come back for the next meal

What a wonderful little restaurant in a friendly community. We enjoyed every single aspect from the fine attentive service, to the accommodations made to us with respect to menu options.
We really enjoyed the Spanish Octopus and 'Award Winning' seared Fois Gras. Both appetizers offered an amazing combination of flavors in a beautiful presentation.
The Pappardelle and the Seared Sea Scallops offered another delicious flavor profile.
Both the Black and White Bread Pudding and the Pumpkin Creme Brûlée were a perfect finish to perfect meal.

The mushroom toast was amazing as was the butternut squash soup. the main pappardelle was not listed as spicy but had just a touch too much crushed red pepper but the flavors over all were solid. Alex and his team were very inviting. would go again for sure

We made an early reservation. The food was outstanding but the service has been better on the past. I was disappointed. The servers were clearly racing around but they did not meet my normal expectations like refilling water glasses and picking up the credit card with the check. One entree was served a good ten minutes later than the other. We were never offered coffee. I don’t think that’s typical of this restaurant. But it happened

I have no idea why it took us so long to find this fit-for-foodies BYO in Wayne, but we dined there last evening and I've already made my next reservation. Chef Alex Hardy (I know his name because he came out of the kitchen and chatted with us for quite some time) is a culinary force to be reckoned with. He and his staff offer a creative, innovative menu (tasting and a la carte) that rivals the best restaurants in the city without being too pricey or over-the-top. We did the tasting menu and enjoyed every course. The lemon sole -- not Dover, lemon -- was so perfectly cooked and flavorful that my husband exclaimed that it may be the best fish he's ever had. And he's had a lot of fish at exceptionally good restaurants. Can't wait to go back.

Came here during restaurant week.
Fully expected mostly bang for your buck -esq value, left questioning If I should take a job in Philly to be able to eat here monthly.
You ever start a relationship with an inanimate object? Me neither, asking for a friend, who said they would marry this menu if given the option.
While the food could have easily been priced for three times as much as I paid, I would say the equally created value of my dining experience was provided by the executive chef and the service staff.
The service staff went out of their way to make sure I got to participate in the BYOB mission, while the chef sent out extra plates to ensure My heart was filled with happiness/fois gras.
I came alone to this meal, and didn’t feel that way for a second.
The music was also on point. I found it hard not to bop a little. Five stars.
I’d be surprised if this restaurant didn’t end up one of the best in Philly.
I am grateful I got to experience it ‘when’

We had a lovely dining experience at At the Table. We sat outdoors on a perfect evening on a beautiful porch. The food was yummy and well presented. We met Alex the Executive Chef. He was charming. They were short staffed so the service was not perfect like the meal itself.

Excited expectations the second time around. I was sorry to see the mushroom toast go, but was happily surprised by the new toast. (Dine to find out) The scallop dish was out of this world and hit every note. I loved the burrata with the fried tomato and was a solid end of summer dish. I love the constant surprises you'll find at At The Table BYOB

The property was smaller than what it indicated online. In the beginning it started out very nice. We could order a la carte, or do the pre-fix menu. My wife and I both chose the pre-fix, it sounded more adventurous, and on the menu it state, “trust the chef”.....So we did.. First course was very nice, I had the eggs with truffle and caviar. Wonderful flavor!! My wife had off the pre-fix, because she does not like oysters or the deviled eggs. Which they were very nice to switch to mushroom avocado toast. The to keep a long story short, it went down hell from there. My entree was sent back cold two times. Then the chef took over and got it pretty close to good. I have the duck breast. It was OK. Of all the courses the desert was the best. For the price it was not worth it. However I would give it one more chance. I use to live in So. Sonoma and never had a meal as bad as this, especially for the cost of the dinner. I know they can do better.

We would definitely recommend eating here. The food was outstanding!! The service was also very good and Chef Alex came out to chat with us and the other diners.
We had the local mushroom toast, which I HIGHLY recommend, if they are still making it. It was amazing! We also had the grilled octopus, which was VERY good!
Added bonus, it is a BYOB, so we are going to come back with our wine group!

Very nice dining experience! The food was excellent and we enjoyed new items, or preparations of, that we never had before. We did not have the tasting but may come back for that. We were glad we got appetizers as the main dish was small and no sides. Left a little hungry. Service was very good and friendly. This was a Birthday dinner and so worth the extra cost; a little pricey for us for repeated dining.
