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

We were the first to arrive when they opened up. We had to wait for 15min while our waitress finished eating. We ordered bottomless mimosas but only got two pitcher and not even a refill on water. Other tables kept getting their mimosas replenished. The staff came and stood next to use and we aloes about the 20top they needed our table for so needless to say we were pushed out of the empty restaurant where we would’ve bought more drinks had we Kindly been asked to relocate

Food was great! Just dont look at the online menu as it isn’t updated. They also were out of a few things when we went, but the food was great! The steaks were cooked perfectly. If you like well done steak they will do it perfectly and it’ll be juicy

We waited 30 minutes until someone finally served us and that was after we got up to ask why no one had approached our table for so long. Would not recommend.

The ambiance was very lackluster. I expected to walk in to a more lively environment. Some of the menu items are overpriced and the food was not impressive. On top of that the bathrooms were very dirty. Dirty toilet paper and paper towels everywhere. It was surprising because the restaurant was not busy and most of the staff were just standing around. I would be hesitant to visit this restaurant again.

Two friends and I met here for dinner before a show at Punch Line. Our server was great, but the menu needs updating. There are a number of items that have been discontinued but are still on the website menu, like the clam chowder and crab cake sandwich. The three of us all got the sliders, which were not great. The chicken wings app lacked seasoning. The Buffalo cauliflower app was pretty good.

Honestly not great. The music was loud for 7 pm dinner when it wasn’t crowded at all. Got the grilled chicken pesto which was supposed to have sundries tomato in the pasta dish. Both my mom and I each had one tomato each. She said some of her chicken wasn’t fully cooked.

If you want to take pictures in front of the IG wall, then maybe. If you come for good service and yummy food, then I would circumvent this place. Waited 20+ minutes to be seated, had some dishes delayed until everyone else was finished eating - the food is edible, but very basic. The best part of the experience was the outdoor seating, but it couldn't compensate for the remaining experience.

I went here to celebrate my birthday. I loved seeing the pics on their Instagram, and I wanted have that vibe for my birthday. Our server was the best and it was pretty, but they didn’t have the full menu so food options were low…considering I don’t eat shellfish and a lot of shellfish options were left on the menu. Also, the keepsake cup was sold out (VERY DISAPPOINTING). There also wasn’t anymore cotton candy for my rainbow cake. That’s the main reason why I came there, for the rainbow cake with sparkle candle and cotton candy & the keepsake cup). Needless to say, I was very disappointed. Overall, it was fun, but it just did NOT live up to my expectations.

Very beautiful place, good food, and great service. However, the rainbow cake was missing the cotton candy and there was a service charge that we weren't aware of. Then, I wanted the crab cake sandwich, but I was told it hasn't been coming out right lately and not to order it. I was disappointed because that's really what I wanted. But I'd definitely recommend this place.

I went to Germantown Garden for my friend’s birthday. We were a party of 4; seated outdoor. The food was delicious! I had the Cajun shrimp pasta, it was flavorful with a nice spicy kick to it. The calamari was also good. The garden set-up is cute and trendy. Our drinks were served in plastic cups, which took away from the overall look of it(I understand because of COVID). However, the service was not so great. The food took a long time to come out and when it did, it was out of order. Some of our main dishes came out before our appetizers. It took the waiter almost 30 mins to bring us our check. They need to get the kitchen more organized, and maybe hire more servers. Our server was nice, but the service was slow.

My first and definitely not my last time visiting Germantown Gardens!! I was everything I was expecting and more. The cocktail and pitches selection are amazing (and the keepsake cups are my absolute favorite!) the portions are more than generous and the music … was definitely my vibe! The ambiance/atmosphere was the best… very bright and neon, fun, everything you look forward to for a date, girls night out or birthday! You won’t be disappointed
