La Peg is a contemporary brasserie by Peter Woolsey located inside the FringeArts building in old city Philadelphia across from the Race Street pier. The dining room is dramatic with 45 foot tall ceilings with large windows to match that give every diner incredible views of the Benjamin Franklin bridge. Designed by Groundswell Design, the industrial interior pays homage to the building’s history as a high pressure pump station for the Philadelphia fire department. The food is casual American inspired with options for the curious as well as the non-adventurous. The service is relaxed and casual yet informed and unobtrusive. Come in for a snack, dessert, drink, or blow out meal, La Peg will satisfy any occasion.

First the staff - from the Manager to the floor staff, they can't be more helpful and fun. Secondly, the food - The salmon was perfect, the bbq veggies were amazing and on and on. La Peg is the best intersection of great food, great service and great ambience.

We were there for after work and happy hour until the waiter told us that happy hour is only at the bar--that was a disappointment; it should be anywhere in the restaurant. Overall it was good and the scenery looking at the BF bridge was beautiful--great place to go after work or after anything; Just sit at the bar if you want reduced drink prices.

Went here for Father’s Day. It was pretty dead, but service was suupppppeerrr slow. Our server just seemed to disappear for a long while. Food was decent, but nothing fancy. I’ll give them another try in hopes for a better experience.

I was very disappointed with my meal at La Peg - specifically, how we were rushed through our meal. The restaurant was literally empty - we were one of 4 tables seated. My date and I ordered an appetizer and two entrees. The appetizer came out within minutes, and before we even had half of the appetizer, our entrees came out. When you go out for dinner, you should not be rushed like this. I expressed my discontent with the waiter - he apologized but offered nothing more. The entrees became cold as we completed the appetizer. Will likely not return.

I went for my anniversary and I was not impressed. The food is limited and more suited for bar snacks, than dinner options. The service was fair. Nothing special for anniversaries I suppose? It felt rushed, unorganized, and informal. I would not go back to La Peg.

I ordered the battered sea bass and it was not good. My wife enjoyed her chicken. I also ordered their ice cream for dessert and it was terrible. Tasted worse than something from Dairy Queen.

The thing that really bothered me was that, even though I left half my main course and all of my dessert uneaten, the waiter made no comment whatsoever as he whisked away the plates full of food.

This was my second time eating La Peg. Both times I was attending a show at the FringeArts - I love that it's in the same building! It's so convenient to have dinner right before a show. The staff and food are both great.

We expected La Peg to be a French restaurant as we knew it was about 4 years ago. Well it has since changed hands and the menu is classic American.
was unimprressed with the menu, food was ok, not that good. very casual, not a good place for a romantic dinner.
Pricey for what you receive.

Parking was a bit difficult, but the food was AMAZING. I forgot the name of the dish i got but it had fish,bacon, veggies... it was heavenly delicious. All the staff were amazing. A bit loud though. But very romantic if you go at night!

Saturday night La Peg was surprisingly empty; therefore, it was quieter than usual. The food was good as it was the previous time we dined there when it was quite noisy. Service was excellent. My dinner had a Southern touch with grits, beacon and collard greens, and I have developed a taste for grits after this meal. We all enjoyed our dinner at La Peg and will return again.

La Peg is an upscale bistro with friendly staff, interesting menu, and quirky ambience. A bit off the beaten path but also walkable from much of Old City.

Booked primarily because it is literally in the "Fringe" Theater space where we were attending a performance. Was very pleasantly surprised by the outstanding quality of the food, eclectic menu, good selection of beer and wine, unique space, and totally competent, knowledgeable, attentive staff. Whether you are going to the theater or just want a really nice place to eat at the east side of the City, you can't make a much better choice.

Last time the 2 of us dined there review would have been all 4s and 5s. Much of that due to a charming very knowledgeable waiter who was not on this time. Fringe festival was on and the bar and noise level was just fine. Lots of kids and staff a bit distracted which was not so fine this time. Caused us to rethink going back again.

First time at La Peg, have wanted to go for a long time but tough to get in during summer. Food and service were great, little light on the selection, but a well rounded menu, something for everyone. Loved the industrial ambiance, I don't remember it being too noisy. Of course all this greatness comes with a price, about $125/couple. But, with 3 apps., 2 desserts, 4 drinks and tip, not too unreasonable for a great experience. Will definatly go back, try for outside in the summer.

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!
