Went to the restaurant and was immediately met by an entire staff wearing shorts and t shirts. At first I didn’t understand such casual attire until I realized that the AC wasn’t on in the restaurant. It was already above 80 degrees outside and it felt even hotter with the lack of airflow. On top of that, my date and I were dressed up so the lack of air conditioning almost ruined our outfits. Finally, if they weren’t serving $40+ plates, I wouldn’t have minded the lack of air conditioning. However, how can you expect any reasonable person to be over spending close to $200 and be sitting in a pool of their own sweat?
The food was Horrible I asked for medi um rare steak came out burnt the only thing was good was the mash Potatoes
Went for a birthday. Group of 12. Enjoyed myself. The food was average, maybe less than average. The drinks were also not that good. The restaraunt is cool looking. Especially for Philadelphia. Wish they had a better playlist. I like Germantown gardens for the vibes mostly.
Do not recommend this place for food, neither for ambience. Overpriced for drinks and food, very basic menu, limited options for food and beverage choices, food was burnt and tasteless, and extremely overcrowded around pool area. One visit was enough for me
Asked for steak medium well, after complaining about it being well done manager told me and I quote “our medium well has no pink I can give you medium” huh ? all over the world medium week has a little pink why not here ? I was very very dissatisfied.
The waitress was a wreck! She charged a person wanted to leave early the price of the entire table! They fixed it but it should not have happened. Our food took forever to come out!
The vibe was so nice. I love the visual with the poolside. The food was so good and our waitress was very sweet and cool.
Awesome customer service. Esther moved unto a table inside but all worked out
We made reservations for pool side but when we got there they couldn’t honor that. The waiter was rude it was really hot and we asked if the air was working and she said yeah and we’re all suffering there’s nothing we can do. We asked if we could be seated outside because it was hot and miserable inside but was told no there were no tables but we seen 2 empty tables. I asked for vegetable lasagna but they didn’t have any, I asked for frozen margaritas but was told they weren’t frozen. I mean the entire ordeal just sucked and the waiter was the worst!
It was EXTREMELY hot inside. Not sure if it is always like this but it was so bad and I’m never hot. I thought being inside would be cooler since it was hot and sunny outside. It ruined my time there. The food was okay. Just be aware of the 20% service fee. Then they also ask for a tip on top of that. No. I had the teriyaki salmon and my boyfriend had the salmon ribeye. They both were good. The wings were great !! The drinks were not good. Not worth the price. The margarita was too sour. Seemed as though it was not a licensed bartender behind the bar. Would visit again but it has to be outside of the air is going to be off and stuffy inside. It was Father’s Day and my son’s father was sweating trying to enjoy his meal. I felt so bad
The food was great and the drinks was even better .
Buffalo chicken sandwich wasn't what I expected but beside that food and drinks were excellent!!
Celebrated My Birthday Here & It was Amazing. Food was Delicious . Atmosphere was nice.
The atmosphere and service was good but the food is really not worth the money! My teriyaki salmon tasted burnt but the mashed potatoes and asparagus was good. We were a party of 12 and everyone had something negative to say about their food. I would recommend this place for just the atmosphere and some cocktails.
It was the worst experience I ever had. I placed reservations for the restaurant and ended up poolside which I DID NOT WANT. Our food took over an hour to get done and it was NOT even what we had ordered. The drinks were way over priced. I will not be returning. Plus the one bartender doesn’t listen at all. Told her multiple times I’m allergic to coconut and still kept trying to serve me something with coconut
I made Reservations for poolside and was told the pool Doesn’t open until seven yet other customers were allowed to sit poolside before seven. Very disappointed.
Thanks for leaving a review. We are working to improve our operations in order to accommodate both our Day Club guests and dinner crowd, new to us admittedly! We make sure that dinner guests have a clean environment and sometimes it takes a little longer to seat early tables. We are working to improve our operations. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy our crab cakes. Our kitchen prepares them fresh every day with fresh crab meat. When you visit again hopefully you see improvements in your experience!
Everything was great. If I leave smiling that’s a good thing!
Everything was great except my brunt crab cake that cost $30, even with that situation they kindly made me another one.
Me and my girls had a great time and would def come back
It was good. Bathroom was wet and disgusting. My only issue
Everything was really nice especially the atmosphere
Nice place to go on a date. Atmosphere was definitely nice. Pool was nice and fire pits. Will come back again.
Food was good, great vibes, very beautiful. I will definitely be going back
I was aware that there was a pool…I was not ready for the Miami club vibe. I could totally see how this would be a great spot for some but it wasn’t what I was looking for and the food was meh at best. I definitely prefer the other side of the restaurant (not pool side) and the food is much better.
The food was not very good. The cauliflower was drenched in buffalo sauce. However the atmosphere the people working there music was great!
It was my first time here and my experience wasn’t that great the place is nice but everything else seemed off this day our food was cold we sent it back the rice was over cooked the salmon was ok and we also ordered a pitcher which was another mistake it was watered down and had no taste at all and the waiter seem to have an attitude with us because we complained.
Food was good and environment was excellent. Would be coming back again
Great service and vibes. Garbage food
I loved it and the waitresses was everything, ugh I hate that I can’t remember name. Definitely coming back
best place to go when you need to make up a day for your wife haha
This was my first time & I had an amazing time. The food the drinks the atmosphere was just great. My server Kia was awesome. You’ll definitely see me again!!!
Cute vibe .. my niece loved her steak .. my crab cake was blah but overall atmosphere was cool and I’d return
The restaurant leaves much to be desired. Online , it looks like an oasis . In person it looks like a run down backyard !!!
We sat poolside, the cabanas or rooms off to the side of the pool look like they were at least maintained . The bathrooms were atrocious - dirty , no toilet paper . Etc!!!! The manager said they “will try” to get someone to clean them - totally unacceptable. I understand the prices based on location , but NO thank you!!
I've been to Germantown Gardens and had a really good experience but our visit yesterday was very disappointing.
Our waitress told us they didn't have any of the frozen drinks but as we were leave we saw a table who had a bunch of them.
Our bill was wrong and we were charged double for 3 or 4 items. Even after she fixed it there was still an extra shot listed.
The consistency was very off. The chicken fingers came out two very different colors, the same drinks came out very different and my friend had a piece of egg on one of her mini cheeseburgers.
I can’t wait until the pool open! I had an amazing time 🤗 10/10
Brunch menu and food was horrible 😩
Food was mediocre...nothing to rave about. Some of the food came out cold and we have to send it back. This is more a place to catch up with family/friends and drink. Not a place for a foodie like myself.
Place is Beautiful, Food is Great! And and Waitress was so nice. I will be coming back!
It was really nice! The ambiance was amazing and the food was great! Only thing I disliked was how long they took to serve the food. We actually never received one of our entrees because it took so long. Besides that it was pretty nice.
