To start, our server Dana was awesome. She made us feel so welcome and provided a couple food selections off the menu. A few of us had the French Toast breakfast and others had the Route 66 breakfast. Everything was delicious and Dana did not rush us. I know we will all be back. The atmosphere was lovely.
Highly recommend going for their brunch. Thank you.
This is a great local spot for a meal, or a meeting over coffee. A nice addition to the town!
Really nice, and a great addition for the Swarthmore and Delaware County dining scene. Great service too - attentive while not being overwhelming. We'll be back.
Wish the working people would be a little more enthusiastic about their job!
Great drinks and fish entrees
Way too noisy!
Nice looking place, warm service; too bad the food was disappointing. Had fish tacos made with salmon, which was incredibly overcooked and dry.
We’ve been there several times for lunch. Always good food and service. Nice atmosphere.
Fabulous, great service and food( not your every day fare) with a relaxed atmosphere.
We had a bunch of starters to share and everyone agreed they were very good. The only disappointment on the menu was a noodle dish that was a bit like ramen.
This restaurant has a beautiful setting with lovely seating arrangements. The food is adequate and the menu interesting. On our most recent visit this Thanksgiving am, the restaurant was not crowded and we waited quite some time for sandwiches and an equally long time for a simple piece of pie for dessert. Also on the two occasions when we went for a breakfast/brunch on a holiday, this past Thanksgiving and last Christmas we were told there was only a holiday chef's menu available and we could not order anything else. This year when we asked the waiter to make a request to the chef to alter his plan and allow us to order from the menu, he acquiesced. Last year he did not and we were not even permitted to sit in the main dining area for a cup of coffee, we were asked to have our coffee in the lobby! Keep in mind on both occasions I made reservations and was not informed of this policy. After last year's fiasco we were gracious enough to give your establishment another go mainly because it is such a lovely setting and within walking distance, and it was ironic that the same thing happened to us for the second time, but with slightly better results this year. I think it is important for your chef to understand, NO ONE wants a chef's menu. Consumers want to go to a restaurant and order how much or how little they would like and from an entire selection. I would suggest conducting some type of market research to validate this point before you offer any of your special menu "only" option again.

Great ambiance. Farm to table food. Scallops were outstanding.
Close to home. Average food. Great waitress. I have nothing else to say.
Lovely, high end restaurant with locally sourced ingredients, in the heart of Swarthmore.
Went for dinner on a Sunday evening and everything was just delicious! We were warmly greeted by the hostess. We tucked into a cozy booth and John took care of us very nicely. I had the chef's preparation of Mediterranean sea bass over root vegetables and it was outstanding. My husband always gets his martini well prepared at Broad Table...not sure who was bartending, but he hasn't had a complaint anytime we've been either at the bar, or eating at a table. My husband had the basic burger, which was just fine, good fries!
Great food but the staff seemed a bit off their game. We've been before a couple of times without the same problems, so hopefully it was a one-off.
The above items I checked says it all! Wonderful addition to our town old Swarthmore!
The fact that there is convenient parking is a plus!
Service is extremely slow. And impossible to find any server to ask for anything.
The food and ambiance are good. However, it has pretty aggressive pricing. Based on my recent fine dining experience at Napa, San Francisco and Palo Alto, price and value ratio is high.
The worst hamburger I’ve ever had at a non-fast food restaurant. The service was terrible.
This is our go place in Swarthmore, PA. The homemade hummus is fabulous. Appetizers are always delicious. and the salads are always fresh and plentiful. The entree's are not all equal-we've had some outstanding meals, and other dishes that are meh. Overall, it still remains our go to place.
Darnell is such an awesome chef - the market fish was SOO delish - really excellent!!! And, the waitstaff - Paige and Neila are both fabulous!!!! And, cocktails are always excellent! GREAT SPOT!
Food was so-so and not a great value for the price. Had a mushroom pasta that was swimming in mushrooms...over cooked, soggy and tasteless, even with a million mushrooms in it!! Menu choices also leave something to be desired. Chef should stop worrying about being trendy and focus more on taste and crowd appeal. Scallops were a bit better, but not as good as we get in Media. Rice, saffron, that they came with was hard and cold, again very disappointing. Server did her best.
We have tried this restaurant numerous times and found the same thing. They only thing it has going for it is atmosphere. But it’s now off the list :(
Food was good, but expensive. Food selections are limited. Services were kind slow. For some reason waiters did not look very happy, (I don't know why) and it seems he did not want to server us. Also he did not pay attention to orders. So he forgot part of one order and we had to wait for long time to get the food.
Few people recommended to go there, but I was disappointed and wouldn't go back nor make a recommendation anyone.
Neila once again made our dining experience so wonderful! She's the ultimate professional and so pleasant! Darnell, the chef, also did a superb job once again and, Jet is the best bartender around! Excellent experience!
Board table is a good choice when visiting Swarthmore. Comfortable and friendly. Good food and service.
Another excellent meal! Neila is the MOST amazing server at the restaurant and the chef is now excellent too! And, Jet makes the best cocktails- A+!!!
This was "buck a shuck" night.
Service was prompt and responsive.
Oyster were perfectly shucked and fine.
Nice glass of chardonnay.
Rolls and minionette.
The menu is very small, and there are no specials (at least for lunch). For local guests, such as myself, it gets boring eating the same thing. They need more imagination, more specials and a larger menu.
I've eaten at the Broad Table Tavern several times and I have had a wonderful food experience every time. Delicious!
Page is the best!
Way too complicated. I got a negative vibe the minute I approached the hostess stand. Service was slow and food was even slower after the order. When the order did arrive, the Gluten Free meal was in edible due to cross contamination.
We are finding that their appetizers are very good but entree s need some work. Their chicken sandwich lacked seasoning. Their fish tacos lacked flavor.
Love their hummus, semplice salad, broccoli app, and chocolate pott dessert.
Only major criticism was noise level. Impossible to hear conversation with friends at table. Need some sort of sound baffle.
Service was excellent, although we had no time for dessert as our waitress became exceptionally busy and we had to leave for theater.
Menu would benefit form a bit more variety or ingredients that could be eliminated, ie. Some spices and mushrooms. Severe allergies.
Thank you to all of the amazing people at the Broad Table Tavern for a lovely first anniversary celebration. They even made us a special dessert. The BBT is a beautiful gift to the Swarthmore community.
Went for the second time here to have brunch. Very modern but cozy restaurant that has a tasteful classy vibe. Our server was very professional and helpful. Ordered a burger, it was a bit dry. My sister ordered the country grits with Tasso and it was AMAZING. I wish I had ordered that instead! Coffee is good and the whole meal was reasonably priced. I do know the last time I was here the tuna tartare is phenomenal, but drinks are a bit pricey! Overall great for a fancy-ish night out or brunch!
Excellent casual food and drink , with superb friendly service. Will return soon.
Neela our server was great ! The food was good as always !
Very good food and amiable, responsive service. Stingy on the glasses of wine.
Wait service was slow. Brought the wrong soup and no spoons to eat it with. The soup was over-salted. The setting is nice and I had high expectations even though I'd been told by locals that it was mediocre. Won't go back again soon.
