Contemporary American
In the completely renovated space located on Sansom Street between 15th and 16th streets, Harp & Crown will bring together old-world touches of charm and luxury with modern sensibility and functionality. Its glass-façade, 24-foot ceilings, and four chandeliers on the ground floor are glamorous pieces that will be balanced with funky vintage wallpaper and leather club chairs, millwork and natural tones throughout the ground floor. The result is a comfortably refined space to match Chef Justin Petruces' approach to cooking, which highlights seasonal ingredients and global cuisines. Guests may enjoy the delicate yet complex flavors of his new- American dishes amongst the space including a 32-seat bar. Delving further into the unused space within the building itself, guests will find a cocktail bar and two-lane, reservations-only bowling alley beneath the main room where cocktails, pizza and charcuterie will be served.

We enjoyed our food and thought the service was attentive, warm and competent. However, the ill-conceived seating for two-tops along the wall is incredibly uncomfortable and the table is too small to fully enjoy our meal. We would have been more comfortable sitting at the bar, which we noticed many other couples opting to do. Don’t know who thought this type of seating was a good idea?

Seating along a wall w the table to your side instead of in front of you is terrible for a meal. Good for a cocktail maybe but a huge fail for an full meal. It was so uncomfortable.

My husband and I ordered the tasting menu which was reasonably priced. It gave us a chance to try 8 different menu items and all of them were delicious. We liked how the ambiance was casual yet it still felt “upscale” because it was very clean and very spacious. We will definitely go back especially since their menu is seasonal.

Server going through the motions and didn't seem to be engaged. Food was hit and miss. Soggy starchy rice pasta, good pork chop, soggy pizza, small drink poors, yummy carrots and parsnips, good halibut, yummy pineapple upside down cake, dry chocolate cake, bland passion fruit bombe. Hit and miss...could be really good. $75 per person can't be hit and miss

We’ve been to Harp & Crown for dinner and had an amazing experience. When a friend told us about brunch, we couldn’t wait to go. It did not disappoint- everything we had was delicious and there were so many options to choose from for just $28. Also, $6 brunch cocktails were just the cherry on top to our experience! Our friends in town from Manhattan were so impressed. We’ll definitely be back!

Drinks were divine and food was absolutely fabulous. I have been trying for a while to squeeze in time to go to Harp and Crown and definitely think this restaurant is great and will definitely be going back again. Some highlights were¨The Gardener,¨ Cobia Crudo, and the Spanish Octopus.

Accommodating our special dietary needs was outstanding. The food was absolutely fabulous. The service was exquisite. I found myself researching the owners to gain insight on their business model. We were well taken care of. Almost to a fault. The attention was lovely but a little pause now and again is good too. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

I've had dinner once and brunch twice at Harp and Crown and it's AMAZING, especially the brunch. I came in this past weekend for brunch and the food was great but my friend's chair broke. She didn't get hurt so we had a laugh over it but I think the restaurant may want to run through the chairs and make sure to toss some of the older ones. She actually fell through the chair. I would still come back over and over for brunch though!

We met up with a few friends for dinner over the weekend. It was a bit hard to find(apple maps routes us to the chestnut street side). We had reservations and we were immediately seated. There was cold draft of air the entire time during dinner. nothing they can do to change that. No biggie. Food was good, I thought the waiters stopped by too frequently and pushing to clear the plates. There was still food on our plates. Did not understand the rush, it was not like there was a long line of people waiting for tables. Recommend the food, cool ambiance, service is mediocre

Great food, great service, great vibe. The only downside is they cram too many groups into one table so parties of two are sitting extremely close to other parties. It’s also very loud so this makes it super hard to hear and hard to have any privacy whatsoever. Would recommend more for larger parties

The food and ambiance were excellent! Our table was very uncomfortable, as we were seated on a bench and had to rotate awkwardly to have a conversation. Our server was clearly trying to flip tables quickly ... very intrusive and we felt very rushed.

We went for a birthday celebration and this restaurant was perfect. We started with the cheeseboard and shared the NY Strip. It was a great choice! The tables are pretty close and we could hear the loud talkers at the table next to us. It turned out to be very entertaining because they were on a first date that didn't sound like it was going well.

This was my first time at Harp and Crown and I cannot wait to return! This place is amazing from every aspect. The service was exceptional and the drinks were unique and so delicious. Where do I begin with the food. Every dish was great! It was 4 of us and we started with the appetizers lamb meatballs, garlic prawns, fish and chips (sushi type dish) they were all great not a fan of the fish and chips but it was not bad...and salad of course. The Entrees were 5 stars Halibut, Fried Chicken and Pizza. You will not be disappointed. After dinner we skipped dessert and went downstairs to the speakeasy for cocktails...OMG the gardener is so tasty! I ended my evening with an espresso Martini:-) Excellent Choice!
