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.

Food was hit and miss. The lamb meatballs were great, the sushi-style fish smaller dishes priced quite high for their size.

Two work friends and I had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner at Harp & Crown last Monday night.

The charcuterie appetizer portion was far more generous than in most places, and the meats were excellent as well. My friends had the burrata salad and enjoyed it as well. For entrees, the lamb steak and the scallops were both hits. My only comment would be that the za'atar seasoning on the potatoes could be a little heavier. But maybe some people don't like za'atar as much as I do :)

From the moment we arrived the staff was great. From guy at the door, to the host, bartender, and waitress. All were great. We started with cocktails (one Burbon one vodka) did the chefs tasting and enjoyed a bottle of wine.

The cocktails while delicious felt as if they were missing something. By no means bad, and it might have been what I was in the mood for wasn’t clear to myself.

The tasting menu food pacing needs to be more spread out. At a two person table with drinks as well there was not enough room to hold the first three plus out plates and drinks. We had to ask for it to be paced differently.

The food was good but because of the pacing it did impact my review. It felt odd to have pizza come out with lamb and eat both. It was over stimulation which influenced my ability to enjoy each part.

Our server forgot to bring different drink orders. He didn’t even realize it until I brought it to his attention!
The restaurant itself was a neat setting and the ambiance was great. The service however was not good. Maybe just our server?

We ordered the charcuterie, the steak for two, & the octopus. The charcuterie and steak were delicious & I’d order them again, but the grilled octopus was so undercooked it was still raw, and very chewy. Other than that, I love this place.

It was my first time there and I loved it. We did the tasting menu and it was a great deal with everything included. The only thing I wished was different was that they put more space in between when each meal came out.

We had a 6:30 reservation and got stuck in traffic on the way in so I called to let them know we would be late. No issues whatsoever! Hostess changed our reservation and took all the pressure off us. We wound up arriving before our newly scheduled time and decided to have a drink at the bar. Walking through the space, you feel taken back in time with the decor .. perfectly exposed beams and brick along with Edison lighting gave the room great ambiance. The bartenders were attentive and the drinks were perfect. Upon being seated right after getting our drinks, we were not happy with the side by side seating (the tables are very small) so I spoke to a floor manager who was immediately attentive & understanding! We moved our seats to the end of the bar (our request) and ordered off the full menu. The Manager also comped our appetizer (completely unexpected) and also check back in with us later in our meal and chatted with me about food and drink (I wish I remembered his name!) The music playing was the perfect and added to the time we spent there. Food was AMAZING! The Garlic Prawns we big and tender and the Burata with spring garlic purée and roasted granola was divine! We also had the chicken sausage pizza with arugula and pecorino cheese which was flavorful and balanced in ingredients. I honestly can’t wait to go back!

We had a community style table and I would have preferred a private table, or at least a heads up that my reservation was for a community type table. Outside of that it was great. Food, drinks, and service were all outstanding.
