    I booked the igloo outside and was told that the restaurant was permanently closing and outside seating was not available. The restaurant had 1 server and the manager had to help. The food was really good. I just wish it was on the website that the igloo option wasn’t available.

    I reserved an outside seat along with 4 other couples that came in after me. The hostess was nonchalant and told us that we needed to pay for outside seating…the website does not offer that option neither does open table. Although we asked for how to reserve the outside from the hostess, they were too busy on their telephones to be concerned with customer service. There was no resolve. Then the appetizers were horrible, my wife ordered calamari that was so over cooked it tasted like it was cooked twice and tasted like onion rings. We didn’t even stay for dinner!

    This was one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had. Completely overpriced and didn’t come close to expectations. Didn’t even end up eating a meal due the overpriced drinks and bad calamari we had as an appetizer

    They add a 20 percent “service charge” for the server to your bill. This allows the servers to be inattentive and lazy and still get a good tip, which is what we experienced.

    I requested to sit outside in the bubble that was the reason I went to the restaurants for the ambience instead I will say on the other side and was told there was no outside seating. I ordered chicken fingers and fries the chicken was so dry that I was choking on it when I swallowed it even cut the roof of my mouth because it was so over cooked not to mention after that I didn’t see anything else on the menu that I want it so I ordered dessert which was a chocolate chip cookie sundae the cookie was so hard the ice cream had a all taste to it it was just horrible. I don’t know if the vesper side has a different menu but when I made reservations for Germantown Garden previously and sat on the side where the bubbles are everything was good I had no problems with my food I would never go back again

    The service was awesome. The food selection was minimal. For the cost the value in amount of food did not match. Also bottomless mimosa are huge but they won’t allow you to share. Even though they are the same size and price as the shareable pitchers. I would have rather the option to pay for a pitcher of mimosas instead of bottomless. Overall it was a cute experience but I won’t be returning.

    The margarita was over priced and tasted like it came directly from the toilet. We didn’t even finish the food because it was so unappetizing. This place is a perfect example of where not to recommend someone dine if they visit Philly. What an absolute waste of money and time

    Worst dining experience I had in Philadelphia. Took us a solid 36 minutes to get a waitress (with a total of three tables filled in the place). Multiple pieces of silverware were dirty. Waitress repeatedly forgot our drinks, the bartender wasn’t doing a damn thing, and no one seemed to know what they were doing. Food came out all together (starters and dinner) and it was inedible and different temperatures. The other table next to us was also furious at their experience. They had plenty of staff but no one working. I would be wildly embarrassed if I owned this place. I would fire everyone (including myself), hire an entirely new staff and retrain them. The worst part is, I’m not picky. I’m pretty easy going. But this was a disaster and I was so sad I picked this place for my friends. Avoid at all costs or you’ll regret it.

    We traveled to Philly for the day and was excited to visit Germantown Garden. The service was great! The hostess and waitress were very kind and helpful. The food was bland. The drinks were okay, I guess. We didn’t finish them and didn’t get additional ones. We did have this cute rainbow cake but after we boxed up all of our food, to take for the road and give to someone in need we saw mice running around. I’m not sure if this was because of the outdoor seating or what but we got up out of there. The things that you see posted online compared to what you actually experience isn’t comparable.

    The place was deserted on a Monday night. Only two other tables of two besides ours and it took over 30 minutes to get a wedge salad after telling the waitress multiple times that we had to be out in an hour. Took another 15 minutes to get three sliders (ordered at same time as salad) when, in fact, we ordered six. They offered to make them but we were quickly running out of time to get to a concert and did not trust that they would be quick. Food was good but service and responsiveness were terrible. If they were crowded, I could understand delays but there was no excuse last night.

    At the time of reservation, I was given an open to select either standard menu or brunch menu. I selected "standard" menu from this option. However, when we were seated at the restaurant, we were told that only brunch menu was available and that there must have been some mistake on the reservation site. We didn't find much options on the brunch menu, so we decided to not have lunch there. Instead, we talked to a nearby restaurant. If I knew that only was the only option, I would not have made the reservation in the first place and could have saved the hassle for everyone.

    Decided to go here with my gfs for a girls night. Disappointed SMH To start there was a bug in an ice cube in my drink. We ordered a pitcher and when I showed my waitress she wasnt empathetic at all and then I suggested if she could just fill my pitcher back up which maybe 2 half glasses were poured out of it which she agreed. Then came back with a small glass and said my boss said he will give you just this. Ordered mussels they tasted sour. Our garlic parmesan corn taste like garlic only. The cajun shrimp penne was no where cajun flavored. Then to top it off we had to keep hunting down our waitress every time we needed her. I could continue on about our food and service SMH
