    Granite Hill is our favorite place for brunch. It is traditional and inventive at the same time. We always combine it with a visit to the museum. We are sorry it is closing for museum construction. However, we were told it will reopen in 15 months. We're looking forward to it!

    Reservation honored at the correct time (1 pm). However, we arrived 10 minutes early and the young person at the desk needs more training in how to show hospitality. My friend and I were told to come back at one, because reservations had to be honored "exactly" in a curt manner. Happily, another person at the desk greeted us warmly when we returned at the "exact" time. We both ordered the trout,which was prepared perfectly. Our server was friendly and did a great job.

    Management of reservations and clearance of tables is poorly organized and terribly slow. On a Thursday, we waited 25 minutes for a party of four with minimal help from the staff. If you have any time constraints, skip it. I cannot imagine what it is like on the weekends!

    Excellent food, as always. The chef's table is a great option for taste and value and the special cocktails, themed to tie in with the Museum of Art's key exhibit of the moment, are delicious. We're sorry the restaurant will be closed during the Museum's new renovation project and hope it will reopen as soon as possible.

    Apart from the 15 minute wait, even with a reservation, this was a tasty meal, agreeably and promptly served. Granite Hill has been a definite plus for the Philadelphia Museum, even in its somewhat cramped space for sometimes overflowing crowds.

    Great location in the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and owned by Steven Starr, but the food is really not up to the standard of other Starr restaurants. Servers and other employees were friendly and professional. Hope the place gets better with the upcoming renovation.

    Good, basic food; large delicious salads; delicious cocktails, though limited selection. Menu is limited, but good for what it offers. It's a nice quiet place to have lunch and conversation before or after visiting the museum exhibits. Service was not great. They brought out 2 orders for our 4 person party, one was a salad and one was the entree. The salad and soup for the other 2 in the party didn't come out until we asked about it. Waiter apologized, but should have been on top of it. The restaurant was not anywhere near busy.

    We went to Granite Hill for brunch on New Year's Day. Despite recent mixed reviews, it was a very pleasant experience. Our waiter, Michael, was very personable and attentive. The filet mignon was outstanding. Everything on the buffet was very good. The only suggestion that I would have for staff, which is also mentioned in other reviews, is that the cheese board could have been filled more frequently. Other than that, no complaints. Overall it was very enjoyable.

    Made reservation through Open Table for my wife's birthday (New Year's eve day). Got the table I requested by the window. Our waiter was terrific, personable and helpful, and the food was tasteful and well presented. My wife ordered the Chef's buffet table, which she loved, and I had the Greek Salad platter. Very nice all around. One of our favorite places to go for special occasions or whenever we have the time to spare while we're at the museum for an exhibition.
