At Fond, we can accommodate both small and large parties. For parties of 10 or less, our private chef’s table is available. For a larger gathering, you may reserve our entire restaurant for seating up to 40 guests. We'll work closely to create food and drink options tailored to the guests’ needs.View Private Dining Details
Everything about Fond was amazing except one thing. We didn't like that we were asked to sit at the bar to finish our drink because the next guest arrived and they needed our table.
Valentines Day. Seated at 8:15 for 7:30 reservation. Seemed that other 7:30 reservations waited even longer. Only one seat at Bar. Bartender and most of staff seemed overwhelmed. Not offered a drink for about 20 minutes. Food was just ok. We have been fans of Fond for years. This was a disappointment. Don’t think we’ll be back.
Poor service and felt neglected. Could tell kitchen and wait staff were not working together. Price did not correspond to the experience.
My wife and I had the tasting menu. Every course was delicious - celery root cream, foie gras, seared scallop, ceviche, lambchops, filet. The quality of the food is very predictable.
Fantastic on all levels!
We always enjoy Fond. My husband and I dine here a few times a yr. We are never disappointed. 2 must have staples. The Fois Gras and the chicken liver spread. We have to have it every time. Always an excellent meal and enjoyable service.
One of our favorite places in a city of amazing food options. Great staff, fantastic food and wonderful drinks. A great date night always!
Foie Gras was outstanding, and our general dining experts great, would highly recommend
We frequent this restaurant for dinner and have never had a bad meal. The food is amazing and the people couldn't be nicer. They just started Sunday Brunch and wanted to give it a try and was happy we did. The pastries are amazing and the menu has plenty of options. Simple as bacon and eggs or sophisticated as crab benedict . You need to give it a try!
Always meets or exceeds expectations. In the 7 or 8 years since Fond opened
at 1617 Passyunk Avenue the restaurant, the chef and the staff have made it
our favorite Philadelphia dining establishment. The menu is always
current, very well executed and extremely tasty. Always look forward to
Food was so good and staff were incredibly attentive and knowledgeable about the wine list and menu. Will be going back again, and again.
Met 4 friends for brunch -- great food and vibes. Bottomless mimosas and bloody marys (including a build your own bloody bar) for $20 -- great value if you are going to have more than 2. Great menu including a raw bar and fresh ingredients, local coffee. Bright, minimalist decor. Will return!
Great meal. Was disappointed by the desserts but everything else was fantastic.
Fond was absolutely unreal. I definitely recommend the 7-course tasting menu with the wine pairing. Such delicious food and great service. I don’t think you can go wrong here.
The tasting menu food and wine were excellent, and the restaurant easily accepted accommodations. Lacking was the service, specifically, our first 3 dishes (of 7) came out very slowly. We were sitting around with empty plates and glasses, eyeing the server to get our next course. Subsequently we felt rushed during the last few courses since the restaurant was closing and then the server was eyeing us to see when we'd be ready for the next course. Once we were asked, "are you still working on those?" about 2 minutes after one of the dishes was brought to the table. Additionally, we missed one of the wine pairings for a dish and were unable to get anyone's attention prior to completing the dish. They did offer to bring it afterward, but... we were ready for the next dish.
Positives - Food, outstanding. Nice Atmosphere. Casual Dress. Nice Bar. Very Nice Staff.
Negatives - Tight Spaces. Wasn't dining. Food came out way to fast.
We ordered the tasting menus. It had NO vegetables. There was rice and meat and noodles and beans but no vegetables. Everything was the same color and consistency and lacked flavor. While well-prepared, it left me wondering if there was a practical joke being played that I couldn't quite figure out. There are a host of wonderful spots on Philadelphia and on E. Passyunk specifically, so I wouldn't rush out again to spend $250/two on bland food.
Second time here. Nice, knowledgeable wait staff and excellent food. Love the lobster risotto, short ribs, chicken and the special-sturgeon. Sweet neighborhood place with great food.
Wonderful cuisine and atmosphere. Great for a romantic date or small party. Was a bit cold but the window view and especially the food now than made up for it. Service was excellent!
