This is one of my favorite spots, not just in Philly, but anywhere! The food is outstanding and the drinks are delicious. I love the ambiance of both inside and the outdoor booths. Sometimes it gets very loud inside depending on time of day.

Love Charlie's. I told them the reservation was for my birthday and a bunch of different people wished me a happy birthday. They gave me sorbet with a candle (free of charge) and thank goodness they didn't sing to me. This was probably my 5th or 6th time going and it always delicious, and I love the the interior.

The ambiance of this establishment is phenomenal. The cocktails were incredibly unique and I found them to be delicious. I’m not really into cocktails, but after this experience I may have had my mind changed. The food was lovely with entirely plant-based, creative cuisine. We hope to come back soon!

Food needs improvement, we ordered the meatballs and I have had better vegan meatballs from trader joes. The food quality and taste does not compare to that of other local vegan restaurants. We sat outside right next to a dumpster, wish they could find a solution for that somehow. The only thing we did enjoy was the drink was very good.

There aren't many vegan places where I live so it was so nice to feel like I wasn't out of place at a restaurant for once. I also do not drink alcohol and really appreciated the non alcoholic options. The staff was full of personality and were so friendly and made me feel special for my birthday. The food was perfect, I need to return to try the rest of the menu!

first, the cocktails were ridiculously sweet. Second, we were not aware that the restaurant served only vegan food, and it all tasted weirdly the same. We were starving when we left, despite ordering 4 plates for 2 people.

I am not a vegan by any means so I was skeptical. Countless friends suggest we give it a try bc of how good it is and it was absolutely incredible. Exceeded expectations.

Charlie was a Sinner is admittedly one of our favorites, and last night did not disappoint. The updates to their seasonal menu include lyonnaise potatoes, which were heavenly! (No judgement, but we even placed an order of them to go home with us! 😋)

As always, our experience was lovely and each dish was delicious!! 💜💜💜

I couldn’t believe the entire menu was vegan! It was so diverse and delicious. We had a hard time choosing our dishes. The waiter was great. We ordered margaritas and he recommended cocktails that were included in happy hour which were similar to margaritas but cheaper. They were fantastic!

This was such a unique experience - I loved the dark, romantic ambience and even though we were sitting between two other tables, the noise level and darkness made it feel very private. Our waitress was super nice and the drinks and food were AMAZING. I had The Metamorphosis and can say it’s my favorite cocktail I’ve ever had in my life. Also the mac & cheese was my favorite mac & cheese!!! So tasty and the tempeh bacon is so smoky and crunchy I wish I had more right now. I went at 8 pm and it was really busy, so I’m glad I had a reservation. I can’t wait to go back next time I’m in Philly!!
