Food was excellent and wait staff was very attentive. I want to go back and try more menu items! Ambiance was great.
Food was excellent. The temperature of the restaurant was extremely warm. Service was great. They should not sit people near the kitchen. There is too much disturbance and it is too warm for customers. Our server was excellent. Overall enjoyed the experience but it was a shame that it was so hot during our time there.
Love this place! Me and my boyfriend had ordered take out and wanted to actually eat inside. It’s like a castle when you first walk in and look to the left… we sat downstairs which was like a romantic candlelight dungeon, appropriately still smoke screen guarded for covid. The food was amazing. I got the gnocchi and my boyfriend got the brodetto- both outstanding. The apps we got were the grilled octopus and the tuna crudo. The entire experience was great and we can’t wait to go back!
I was thoroughly impressed with Bistro Romano! We sat inside and it was such a warm atmosphere with the best service. The food was to die for - apps, entrees, desserts, everything!! My new favorite Italian restaurant in the city! Can't wait to go back next week!!
We absolutely loved our first experience at Bistro Romano! The brussel sprouts, black pepper macaroni, veal saltimbocca, and red wines are impeccable. The staff are incredible as well and made our anniversary so special.
This was an exceptional dining experience. We had an appetizer, two pasta dishes because our server graciously offered small portions, and one entree. I don’t know if we’ve ever had better pasta outside of Italy.
Beautiful and excellent service from Tom!
A little loud in the lower level but worth it as it's so beautiful.
Delicious food, great wine selection!
Everyone enjoyed the food, the service was impeccable. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The 6 of us had a perfect evening!Sean’s personally crafted limoncello is always delicious. He also makes the best spicy margarita.
We had the chef's tasting menu with wine pairings, both of which were great. The restaurant was nice about taking a few special requests into consideration. The servers didn't seem to know a lot about the menu items and wine. They often had to go back to the kitchen to ask about what they were serving. The pork and mashed potato were amazingly good.
Everything was meh. Caesar salad had way too much oil on it. Told the waiter and he just said ok. We both had veal saltimbocca. The meat was tough and chewy. Couldn’t wait to get back to the hotel to floss. I was surprised that Thai restaurant had such great reviews.
Great service and delicious food.
Your water glass will not go unattended.
Thanks again for a great birthday dinner! Great service, food and an amazing time.
Great service and great food. We were seated immediately upon arrival. Delicious!
Amazing cuisine and suburb service! Had the lobster ravioli and risotto. We’re veggie freaks so we had the blistered shishitos, carrots & broccoli. Craft cocktails were also delicious!
The Crab Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms and Bucatini were excellent.
Such a cool little restaurant. The building makes for an amazing experience. Food and service are outstanding! Will definitely be back!
My husband and I enjoyed our anniversary at Bistro Romano. The service, food and atmosphere were impeccable. We were even served a complimentary champagne toast to help celebrate our anniversary. We’ll definitely be there again soon!
Glad you enjoyed your anniversary celebration; impeccable food, service & ambiance is exactly what we like to hear from our guests. We appreciate! Cheers to you! Thanks. Team BR.
Everything was amazing! Cocktail is amazing! Food is very good! And Our server is very friendly and attentive! Definitely will come back 👍👍
Thanks for your high marks and the private note. Glad you enjoyed everything from start to finish. Hope to see you soon. Team BR.
I have no idea what restaurant the other reviewers were eating at, but I was at Bistro Romano this weekend, and the food was . . . mediocre at best. The highlights are the subterranean room which was very cool, the brussels sprouts, and the chocolate torte dessert. Lowlights (aside from the service; our server was nice, but pretty clueless and forgot a number of items throughout the meal ) included the mussels which were forgettable, the very dry short rib croquettes, and the enormous amount of pesto on the seafood risotto. The octopus appie was ok, although it was a bit rubbery, and there was too little in there. Once at Bistro Romano was enough; there are enough really good restaurants in the city without needing to go back.
You were at bar w/wawa coffee/bag of yogurts; Mgr shared City C19 restrictions: can’t accommodate guests at bar, stools removed. You shared plenty of restaurants would be glad to have you at bar. Mgr visit guests said entrees good you said are you going to yell at me again. Perhaps unable to be at bar set the tone; we strive to exceed expectations, would have removed items/redo/offered options had you let us know. Support City restaurants, tell them of issues at the table so you leave happy.
Amazing experience. The Chef’s tasting was the best choice and did not disappoint. Each course was better than the last, and the wine pairing was perfect. Love this place.
Delighted you enjoyed the Chef Tasting & Wine Pairings which allows a sampling of many Bistro favorites. Thanks for the detailed review & 5stars. We appreciate! Team BR.
The food is so incredibly fresh and all hand made pasta every day! Beautiful secret hideaway with old world ambiance.
Super review; you described Bistro! Glad you found us & enjoyed. Thanks. Team BR.
What a find!!! This place is just amazing. Everything was good especially the special Bucatini with duck. The wine list is extensive. Please have a Genepy as “digestif”. This restaurant is definitely a new favorite.
Thanks for the 5stars, delighted to be a new favorite! Thanks for sharing a few details from your visit & look forward to your return. Team BR,
The devil is in the details. Many things missed or overlooked for fine dining.
Thanks for joining us & for the 4star, 5 on food. We appreciate it. We did reach out via phone, left a voicemail to learn more about your experience with service. We hope to hear from you. At Bistro Romano exceptional cuisine and service are on the menu everyday; our apologies for any shortfalls regarding service and look forward to speaking with you personally so we can improve. Thanks again. Team BR.
Service food atmosphere were all excellent
Excellent review, thanks! Glad you were pleased. Thanks for joining us. Team BR.
It was wonderful! Some of the best food in the city.
Some of the best food in the city, we'll take it, thanks! Wonderful as well, thanks! Thanks for joining us. Team BR.
I would definitely want to come back, probably on special days.
Thanks for the 5stars & for joining us. Glad you enjoyed. Team BR.
Went for restaurant week so can't speak too much on pricing normally. I've only heard good things about this place from multiple people so was excited to try. Met expectations and more. The swordfish (first time trying) changed my life. Def good for a romantic date!
Wow on the swordfish, glad you enjoyed! We appreciate all your detail & 5stars. At BR our goal is to exceed the expectations of our guests -- glad to hear you were pleased. Thanks again. Team BR.
One of my top fav Italian restaurants in Philly, absolute best for a date with their wine cellar ambience, the food is always fantastic and the owner’s own wine is a nice touch. While it is delightfully intimate for dates, my family and I have also come on several occasions for a nice family dinner. The 5-course with added wine pairing is a must.
Wine cellar, date night, family dinners, chef tasting, il granato chianti & Best Guests Ever equal all things Bistro! Thanks for the highlights and the great review. Happy to be a Fav! Glad you enjoyed. Team BR.
Very nice environment. A little pricey for the portion.
Thank you for joining us. Team BR.
I had not been there for quite awhile. It however did not disappoint. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. I especially enjoyed my appetizer of the octopus.
Great restaurant week choice.
Thanks for joining us for CCRW & for the 5star. Glad you enjoyed the octo a guest fav. Team BR.
Wonderful Restaurant week menu - had a fantastic steak cooked to perfection. As usual everything is well prepared and presented. Excellent choice of wine by the glass and always excellent service.
Thanks for joining us during CCRW & for the great review. Glad you enjoyed! Team BR.
Pretty good; would have preferred a table that fit the size of our party.
Apologies regarding the table; not exactly sure what you mean yet would like to learn more about your visit. If you might consider sending a private message with the name of the reservation then I would be able to reach directly to you. Thanks for joining us & for the 5star. Hope to hear from you. Team BR.
I went during Restaurant Week but opted for the chefs specials and had the Moulard Duck Breast with millet, thumbelina carrots, pea tendrils. And it was delicious. Can't wait to come back to see what else is going to be offered.
While our CCRW Menu has been very popular, Chef's additions also have been a hit this week. Delighted you enjoyed the Moulard Duck Breast with accompaniments. No doubt Chef will have another delicious addition for you to enjoy coming soon. Thanks for the detail in your review & for the 5stars. We look forward to your return. Team BR.
We were seated downstairs & the ambiance is way too DARK. Felt like something was going to crawl across my foot under the table the entire time!!
Experience was decent, but after reviewing, I received a response from a low-functioning employee who made an accusation that I made an error with my seating choices, followed by passive-aggressive recommendations. Had they done proper research instead of assuming and trying to save face, they’d have recognized that it was an error on their own behalf. Evidently a staff member of Bistro Romano may need a crash course in grammar and professionalism. Will not be returning.
Thanks for the 5stars; glad you enjoyed your dinner, cocktails & service. We love the two e's: excellent & exceptional! On your next visit be sure to select regular seating and not a high top -- our guests usually don't land at a high top unless it is requested. If not apologies for any snafu. We are also offering outdoor dining which you will see when you make a res on OT. Thanks again, we look forward to your return. Team BR.
Food, service, staff, the views, were all great. I would definitely recommend and go again.
Thanks for joining us & for the great review & thumbs up on the recommend. We appreciate & look forward to your return. Team BR.
Excellent food and great service.
Great, glad you enjoyed. Thanks! Team BR.
Enjoyable but missed the Cesar salad made table-side due to Covid restrictions
Thanks for joining us & glad you enjoyed. C19 restrictions are now lifted as of today -- we also would like to present our table-side Caesar, please stay tuned! Won't happen right away yet we are working toward returning the popular presentation. Many guests miss it and we do as well. Thanks! Team BR.
Restaurant week menu was great. Atmosphere was romantic. Service was top notch.
Thanks for visiting during CCRW; glad you enjoyed the menu, atmosphere & service. We appreciate! Team BR.
