La Peg Ratings and Reviews
We went there for dinner, such great location BUT FOOD WAS AWFUL. We had to return back our shrimp as it smells like a garbage. We also ordered crab cake and meat plate which were so terrible. I ended up eating bread and butter. I won't recommend going there for dinner. It might be a good place just to get a beer and seat at the bar. I would never go back there again. They need to change their chef.
My girlfriend and I have made this our regular spot for special occasions. The service and food are consistently great! Our server this time was a lovely young lady named Grace. She was very sweet and energetic and helped make my girlfriend's birthday special.
We had the meat plate, crab cakes, and foie gras for appetizers and all were amazing. We highly recommend all three.
For dinner I had the spaghetti and meat sauce that was out of this world. MY girlfriend had the steak which tender and cooked to perfection.
We love everything about this true gem!
I went with a group of friends during Center City Restaurant Week to celebrate a friend's birthday. The value of course was great because we ordered off the restaurant week menu. I'm not sure regarding the normal menu because I didn't look, but my friend's cocktail was $14, so I'm assuming the entire menu is a bit on the pricey side.
The food I ordered was absolutely outstanding. For first course I ordered country fried quail on a bed of cheese grits. The quail was done just right, and the cheese grits were some of the best I've ever had, and I lived in Georgia for 10 years.
For main course I ordered a steak with mashed potatoes and a side of broccoli. The broccoli was seasoned with an interesting spicy seasoning, unlike any broccoli I've had elsewhere. It was great. As were the steak and the potatoes.
For dessert I ordered chocolate bread pudding, which was also outstanding.
The food was great, but the service and ambiance were a bit lacking. For starters, the restaurant was entirely too dark. The sun had already set by the time we got our food, and my friends noted that there was more light outside than within the restaurant, and it wasn't from street lamps. Eating in the dark was not that fun. Second, our waitress seemed to forget paying attention to certain things. When we sat down she asked about my friend's birthday (which I noted in my reservation), and that was all the mention the birthday celebration got. Not even a candle on the dessert my friend was paying for anyways. She also forgot to ask us if we wanted separate checks, and then got irritated when we asked her to split them for us after she brought us the check. We were a group of 5 young adults (4 females and one male), I think it was pretty obvious none of us were paying for the entire table, she should have known to ask.
I went with some girl friends and we had the best time! Service was amazing and the food was delicious. Our server was friendly and before I even had the chance to need anything, he was providing all we needing! Super beautiful spot. Highly recommend for a trendy meet up or fun dinner date
We went for restaurant week and had a great experience. The only tiny complaint was that my burger bun was definitely over-toasted (like char.) The dessert (bread pudding) was a particular highlight. The space is so interesting and creates such a nice atmosphere. Our server was very attentive and made helpful recommendations.
Went here for restaurant week. Menu was diverse so that everyone in my party had something to choose from. Portion size was just right. Nothing left on my plate, and I didn't walk away feeling hungry. Food was very good. Atmosphere / decor was interesting and unique. Service was attentive without being intrusive. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
Only reason they don't get a 5 star is we had reservations for 7pm dinner. We arrived at 6:45 and went to the bar for a drink. Another couple that was dining with us arrived at 6:50pm. We were having our drinks when at 7pm we were told we needed to be seated by the hostess. The restaurant was not crowded at all and there were plenty of tables open. I could have argued this point but decided not to. I would have liked to finish my drink at the bar or have another one before being seated. There was no reason to rush us to the table. The entire time we were there tables were available for seating. Maybe she was new and it wasn't intentional to rush us or doesn't know the restaurant business that well. They lost a sale at the bar but I am overlooking this because everything else was very good. I will go back.
Had an excellent restaurant week meal here.
The ambiance is a mix of chic, artsy, and steam punk. The service is efficient and friendly.
The food exceeded my expectations. The serving size, especially for prefix was generous. I especially enjoyed the food pheasant appetizer and NY strip with roasted broccoli entrée. The steak was perfectly rare.
Loved this ambience, setting, and service. The menu was perfect. I am a vegetarian and my husband is a meat eater. Everything was on point for us. Flavor and presentation. I will go back when it is warmer (it was a drive for us) so I can hang outside at the firepits next time with a drink and friends.
Great atmosphere, fine food good, but not fast service - but I am NOT especially motivated to return.
Like many restaurants, you can't order happy hour prices once you are seated at a table. I think this is a mistake for restaurants because it often sours the customer. Allow the first drink at HH price presuming it is still HH. This will get more food sale, more sales at the bar and happier customers.
BTW, I think it was mentioned in the reservation that is was a birthday, and there was no recognition of that.
My sister and I picked this spot off the list for Restaurant Week since we've never been there before. The night that we went there was an ice sculpture being created outside and it was amazing to watch. They were being created for outdoor bar are which was a great area as well with the seating and fire pits. This is a place that I will be returning to with the girls and it's perfect for the late night date with the views of the water and bridge. ( best to go at night ,.. very romantic but casual)
service was really off for this visit to La Peg. had been there before and had great service. not sure if it was the server or the kitchen. did not think that server was very attentive although did not short change her on the tip (maybe should have). waited forever for bread. one menu item was just fair (spag and meat sauce) burger eaters had a better experience. did tell hostess
YOu could miss this place driving along Delaware Avenue. But stop and take a look!
Intriguing atmosphere, very friendly and accomodating staff. Interesting menu, with plenty to choose for lunch. Everything prepared well. Left full and thrilled! Great drinks too!
I called to make a reservation in hopes to reserve a table upstairs near one of the large arched windows to view the fireworks & was told no phone reservations, use Open Table.
Open Table only had availability near the 6 pm fireworks, so I reserved a 5:15 pm table for two. Open Table does not allow customers to select a table location.
When I arrived I asked the host for a table upstairs near a window and was told "sorry" and seated downstairs at a table centered in the restaurant near the bar.
Noticed several empty tables upstairs and asked Eric, our server if we could be seated upstairs and was told "sorry".
Totally missed the fireworks, with the 6 pm fireworks lasting only about ten minutes.
Bread & butter rated as "good". First course crab cakes w/ cauliflower rated as "pretty good." Main course; scallops nice sized, but undercooked, rated "sorry". Desert pumpkin? creme brulee, "sorry". Eric's service "good to excellent".
Restaurant was freezing cold & drafty with tables on top of each other.
Valet service cost $30, rate it "good service, but sorry by $15". Bill not including tip or valet parking $177, which means I spent $250 total for a few crab cakes, rate it as "sorry or sad or going somewhere else next year". Total disappointment.
We visited La Peg on Christmas Eve 2017 and were extremely impressed with the ambiance, food choices and service. I asked our server for Entree recommendations and was surprised to hear that the Pot Roast was his favorite. So I figured what the heck! The food presentation was delightful and the Pot Roast literally melted on my pallet! My Wife and Son loved the salmon and my Daughters steak was done perfectly!
If you're looking for mass quantities, go to Maggianos! If you want phenomenal food in a really cool, Euro style environment, check out La Peg!
Another great night at Le Peg. As a party of 6 we all enjoyed our meals immensely! The pot roast, pork belly and steak were all excellent!!! Our server (Hailey?) was also very friendly, professional and personable - it made for a really great night of food, drinks and company!
We had a great brunch at Le Peg, located in the Fringe Arts Building in Old City Philly. Original space with a great view of the Ben Franklin bridge. Our server Sebastian was very polite and attentive. He also sped things up to get our bill quick and settled up in record time. We had theater tickets and realized we had to go asap (our fault) The food was very good and will be back for sure.
