Fond’s interior features natural tones and elements, including a 12-seat live-edge wood bar, where guests may enjoy a selection of beers, well-crafted cocktails and a thoughtfully curated wine list. The 36-seat dining room with its bright display of greenery throughout and oversized windows overlooking the neighborhood’s ‘Singing Fountain’ enhance the restaurant’s comfortable, welcoming ambiance. During warmer months, ample sidewalk seating is available for guests to enjoy food and drink al fresco.
One of my favs, excellent quality and execution!
The service st Fond is a 10! I highly recommend this place. One of the pest of East Passyunk.
Brunch was Outstanding
We celebrated a family birthday party at the chef's table. At the last minute the chef and server bent over backwards to accommodate vegan members of our party. The food was absolutely fabulous especially the fancy mushroom whose name I'm unable to remember, but was clearly amazing. The staff is always warm and efficient. I would definitely suggest this as a special occasion or romantic destination. Good clean food and lovely people. What could be better?
We tried the tasting menu. It was delicious and the portions were just enough. I would certainly go back. The cocktails were VERY well done. The bartender went out of his way to ask our preferences.
I had my birthday brunch at Fond and the food was delish and the service was fabulous!!
I did not have a great first experience at Fond, but I have been many times since and every other experience has been great. The service is always wonderful and you can always depend on the food being good. Especially for brunch.
Fond is consistantly among the best restaurants in Philadelphia. Don't hesitate- GO! You'll love it.
Simply amazing, every single time! The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating...The food sublime. Chef Lee's foie gras is the best outside of Paris! A great place for a cozy date or outing with friends. We love it!
Fond is without a doubt our favorite restaurant in Philadelphia. From the most incredible food to the friendliest staff, it is the most perfect dining experience from start to finish. Carney’s warm hospitality and unbelievable cocktails are a special highlight. He is truly a master of his craft. Thank you, everyone - We can’t wait for our next visit!
Awesome!! Wonderful dinner here!
Always excellent! The food and service is consistently terrific!
Fantastic food and service per usual. Definitely my favorite restaurant in Philly!! I love it here so much
I enjoyed my meal at Fond and the service was excellent! The pasta with brown butter, ricotta, and butternut squash was delicious and my husband enjoyed the “green circle” chicken dish. Ambiance is cozy and inviting. Highly recommend!
The food,the cocktails and the service were fantastic. Fond never disappoints Usually we go for brunch which is equally as wonderful but our dining experience was fantastic what a great place
Second time there, second time the most excellent brunch experience - will be back again!
I took my gf here for her birthday. The food, service, and ambiance were outstanding. The restaurant was packed and the staff was dialed in. The food was excellent. Black squid ink risotto is a must try! I would gladly go again! 😸
One of my favorite restaurants in Philly. Couldn't recommend highly enough!
We really needed the Fond treatment that night. A friendly, attentive waiter; a round of cocktails; an intriguing selection of entrees and appetizers; a little "amuse-bouche" from the kitchen; slices of great artisinal bread from a basket; all leading up to a delicious meal. We're very lucky to have a spot like this in our neighborhood when we need this kind of sophisticated comfort food. It's a little on the pricey side but a great value in pleasure.
The food was excellent and the service was even better!
We have never been disappointed at Fond. The food is amazing and the service is always great. The portions are incredibly generous and the wine pairing was fabulous. The chicken liver mousse is our favorite dish.
PHENOMENAL food! I absolutely loved everything about Fond. I live over an hour away and I can’t wait to come back!
Everything was absolutely amazing, from the food to the service. I will definitely be going back.
Our visit to Fond on a Sunday evening was just lovely. Such a pleasant change from all of the trendy restaurants where the noise level makes conversation impossible. The food was wonderful - perfectly fresh, expertly prepared, and with interesting sides and sauces. Service was perfect - our wine glasses were filled magically without us even noticing. This restaurant would be perfect for a date or a get together with friends who want to enjoy a great mean AND each other's company. Nice wine and cocktail list as well.
Consistently excellent food and service for both dinner and brunch.
I made a reservation at Fond a mini reunion with some mom friends that I haven't seen in awhile. The server was excellent in giving us time to catch up before he took our food order and we never felt rushed. Everyone's brunch was spot on and the service was top notch. I can't wait to make another reservation!
I highly recommend Fond for an excellent meal with delicious cocktails and creative appetizers and main courses. A must!
As a restaurateur myself, it is very hard for me to relax & just enjoy myself & not mentally rip apart my experience. But at Fond, it is nothing but peaceful & professional. Fond exudes a quiet confidence. The menu is concise & yet well rounded, the room is pleasant & comforting, the service was stellar, & the food is obviously the highlight. There were 4 of us & we all ordered different items to share, when it was hard to share because we all liked our first choices so much. Glad Fond is still kickin it in high gear after 10 years. A great dinner was had by all.
We very much enjoyed our evening at Fond. The seared foie gras and the chicken pate are spectacular. The duck confit was perfect, but somehow the pork belly did not hit the spot. We appreciated the delicious martinis and the good wine selection. Overall, I would very highly recommend this lovely restaurant.
Excellent service, and amazing food!
Great service, great food, would definitely recommend.
Just absolute fabulous! The service was excellent, friendly and efficient...from both the waiter and bus woman. The food was so good that I really wanted to lick my plate! We got the fois gras app and salmon crudo app...both were amazing. We got the scallops which had am amazing sear and was like candy (perfectly cooked. We also got the pork chop special which was exceptional! The milk of amnesia cocktail was to die for (I had 3!).
Really solid service and another wonderful meal. If you haven't experienced it, Fond is a neighborhood find that doubles as a great date restaurant and as a local, eat-at-the bar stand-in.
Anniversary. Server and bartender made our experience most memorable. Oysters and artic char special were outstanding. Tasty cocktails and wine. We will definitely be back! Thanks!
Great food, and Adam provided some of the best service I’ve ever had anywhere.
Favorite restaurant in Philly. Food is consistently fantastic. Staff make you feel genuinely welcome.
Service was really slow. We were brought the wrong dessert, which they gave us anyway, but then they charged us for it so we had to request it to be removed. Food was ok but not nothing exceptional. Duck was pretty salty.
An under recognized gem. Really good food and service in cozy atmosphere
