We are foodies who enjoy gourmet food. The food here was absolutely delicious! Our waitress was a delight! We will return!

TOO LOUD! The combination of music turned up too high, tables too close together, and people conversing in raised voices made for an unpleasant experience. The brunch menu was limited in food selection, and the list of wines by the glass even more so. We have dined at more than a score of Open Table restaurants in Philadelphia and rate this restaurant lowest of them all.

This was my second time here and it was even better than I remembered. From the bread, to the cheese plate, meatballs, and lamb ragu- the food was flawless. Service was incredible as well and ambiance is great. It's not too noisy so you can hear your conversation but still a good crowd surrounding you. Great experience! Will definitely be back.

We enjoyed our meal very much, from the pate to the mussels to the ice cream dessert (a sundae for grownups). Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. The reason for a 4-star review instead of 5-stars: it was so noisy until the crowd thinned out that my husband and i had trouble hearing each other. A suggestion would be to turn down the music when the restaurant is super crowded.

We have been last year for lunch and it was wonderful. This time, there only seemed to be one waitress and one server. At one point, I actually had to go to the hostess to ask her to get our server. My lamb ragu pappardelle was just warm, 3 scallops for $8 each? Really? It will be quite a while before we go back. So disappointing. Now I see why only 3 tables were taken at 7:30.

Pre-show dinner. Looked at photos of food before going. Ordered 4 appetizers and the steak frites which was phenomenal! I wanted to lick the plate when it was done. Definitely will be going back.

Food was very good from the appetizers to dessert. We enjoyed the seasonal sangria as well. Service was a bit too attentive. Would have been happy with half as many visits to the table.

Service was very good. Duck Lyonnaise salad was delicious. Duck papardelle ragu and mussels frites were so oversalted that they were inedible. They did remake the two entrees to go and didn't charge for one, so 5 stars for service recovery effort. Will likely wait a while before we try again.

Fabulous Food, great service, & overall fun evening. If you do not enjoy louder environments, then this is not the place for you. We have been here 3 times & have never been disappointed. Have always enjoyed our meals, beverages & the atmosphere. Cannot wait to return.

The food was delicious but service messed up the evening. Entries were served prior to appetizers and orders sent out one at a time as apparently they were ready. The space was extremely loud so that you couldn’t talk to your neighbor. I had heard such great things I was sorely disappointed.
