The cuisine was excellent! Seating was quick. The staff were friendly and attentive. I indulged in the Pot Roast which was the best I have ever had. The Paloma cocktail was a little harsh going down. Seating can be a little tight but the staff will gladly accommodate you. I'll rate my experience at La Peg a 10 because I have no real complaints.
Great space, Chris was an attentive & knowledgable server, pot roast & sunchoke soup delicious. We’ll be back.
Cool ambiance and food was on point (restaurant week menu). Drinks were ok. Clayton our server was excellent offering some good suggestions. Will definitely return.
We showed up for our New Year’s eve reservation, and I was pleasantly surprised that there was a DJ and dance party happening that evening to celebrate the New Year. Our entry into the party was free with our reservation because we were dining after a certain time. The food, the service, and the New Year’s eve party was a blast! I would definitely recommend this venue to friends.
Went for New Years Eve, food and service were great! Nice atmosphere and beautiful view of the waterfront/ firework show.
We had an excellent dining experience at LaPeg. The restaurant was very hip and had a great view of the Ben Franklin Bridge. Service and quality were tops!
We were there for NYE. It was a price fixed menu which we did not know until a few days prior when the restaurant called to confirm our reservations. The choices were good and a decent value. I don't think we will be back for NYE if they continue with the three course menu just not our speed, and ended up being very pricey. It would have been nice to know the valet was not working prior to our arrival. The staff was very attentive. The outside area looks amazing, but unfortunately was to wet to enjoy.
We went to La Peg for a New Years Eve dinner and to catch the 6PM fireworks (we were told that being on the waterfront the view would be great). The food and drinks were wonderful and the server was extremely friendly, but I found that the dinner was very overpriced. I spoke with many other groups that went out for NYE dinners with prix fixe menus who had much lower bills (or received 4 course meals or a drink in addition to their meal for the $65 cost). I suppose the reason for the $65 menu at La Peg (vs. $45-$50 at other locations) was the waterfront, firework view. But as it turns out, we could barely make out the fireworks overtop of the building right outside of the venues’ window. Again, it was a nice experience but not at all worth the cost. I wish I would have tried the restaurant on a regular night rather than a special occasion, but unfortunately I now have a sour taste for La Peg.
We would not return to this restaurant. although our waitperson was outstanding: friendly, helpful and very funny. The rest of the experience was not that good. The food was okay but not special, and the ambiance quite unpleasant. We froze and had to wear out coats, and the place is very dark. The music was rather annoying. The restrooms were messy, too. Not a place we would recommend.
Two words ... Fried Cheese
Lots of fun. Great view. food was ok. Server was at times hard to find
The atmosphere is gorgeous, the sound level was great when we were there, the entrees and service were excellent. The only complaint was that the creme brulee was cold. The waiter did offer to return it to the kitchen. Overall, our experience was very good and we all agreed that we will definitely return.
Although La Peg was advertised as having fantastic views of the river and the Ben Franklin bridge, clear and unobstructed views were hard to come by...
the rustic, industrial charm and decor and the fact that La Peg shares space with a theater was indeed a rare find!
Menu was eclectic yet also offered favorite comfort foods as well!
Within walking distance from our Penns Landing hotel!
Our server at La Peg was Alex & he was absolutely great & attentive!! Our dinner experience was GREAT!
First time here. Wanted to go strictly to see the architecture and weren’t disappointed. Very cool industrial atmosphere with a view of the Ben Franklin Bridge. Good also did not disappoint. Would definitely head back.
This was a cool spot and super close to the piers for a scenic after-brunch walk. A friend had recommended their blueberry beignets, but that and a lot of other interesting menu items weren’t in stock for Sunday brunch. We ordered the toad in a hole and the eggs Benedict and both eggs were very over cooked.
Cool building. Decent food. Philly has much better options at this price point.
I went early on a Saturday night and had to dry run friends. We had a great view of the bridge. It wasn't too loud and it is a great day to place.
My party of four throughly enjoyed our dining experience at La Peg. Attentive service, yummy appetizers and the atmosphere was a nice balance btwn casual and understated trendiness. I especially enjoyed the tender pot roast.
Perfect French baguette went well with the extensive cocktail selection.
We look forward to our next visit at La Peg and their new selections.
Located in the same building as FringeArts, so convenient for a pre/post bite. Wanted the baby back ribs, but they were out of them. Food was very good. Service a bit slow.
Service was horrible, rushed us to get our order, than took over 5 mins to bring us our drinks. Than we ordered our food which the menu on open table is different than the one they give you there, forgot half our order so we sat there till he came back and asked for it his reply was “you still want it?”
The tables are so close together instead of it being just the two of us it was a party of 8.
The Buger is Good!
I wish they would have had the ribs! 😊
The service was good as well.
Would come back for a quick bite.
If in the area would come back.
Went to La Peg for restaurant week and the food was great! Everyone in our party was satisfied with our meals. Our waiter was very helpful when selecting from the special menu and for selecting drinks to compliment our meal.
Excellent option for restaurant week. The meals were delicious and service was super fast! Our waiter - I want to say Sebastian- was very personable and kept checking up on us.
Took 2 days to review different locations for Phila Restaurant week. Picked this place because of their choices for all 3 servings. To my dismay, upon arrival found out their whole open table menu had changed. The waiter was extreme;y nice and asked if we would like to leave. Our son was there with us, so as not to embarrass him, we stayed, big mistake. Waste of 35.00 per person for 3. 1 order was for ribs, baked beans and corn bread. Was served 2 ends of ribs, beans that tasted like they were soaked in nothing but bbq sauce and the corn bread was a 1 inch square that was sooooo hard i couldnt bite into it. Would never refer this restaurant to anyone till they have a chef that actually knows hows to cook.
I recently dined here for Restaurant Week and I was definitely impressed. I loved the decor and the exposed brick and piping. It was an old building and they didn't hide it, which I like. Our server Sebastian was super friendly and entertaining. The cheese curds were addicting and their creme brulee was really good! I got the ribs for my entree and I was a little disappointed that my cornbread was a little stale. Otherwise, I was happy and I would go back.
Cool inside and out! Interesting location under the Ben Franklin Bridge makes for a unique setting....especially if you grab some beers outside and play some of the available games. Definitely recommend.
We went for restaurant week so I can’t say all the time but the the mahi mahi was bland absolutely no flavor. The best part of the meal was the amazing brownies!!!!!!!!!! Our server was very attentive and made the experience.
Food for the most part was cold, found plastic in the butter. The main course was super dry, cornbread was like a crouton. Only good part was the beer and the creme brulee. Waitress's didn't do anything about the plastic, it just sat there.
We went for resteraunt week, so maybe it’s different during other times. We really wanted to go bevcause of how nice the building / view are. The waitress was friendly, but it took forever between courses. The food was bland and over cooked. Ordered the crab cakes and they were so dry. The fish was also over cooked and the creme brûlée wasn’t set. The cocktails were good, but I would not comeback here.
Great food. Went here for restaurant week so we couldn't take advantage of the entire menu. The food was amazing and I would come back here again to try their regular menu.
The service was amazing.. the food was tasteless. I am not a picky eater and I was disappointed. The entree was a of I the brisket.
Restaurant week. Food was decent but not spectacular. Fish was very dry and tasteless.
Very nice casual place. They take everyday food up a notch with no pretention. Industrial look is well executed. A place to go more than once.
Great food and the old building and the Philly history is awesome.
This restaurant is run by experienced people, but the food was terrible. Oysters Rockefeller had soggy, greasy, unbrowned crumbs in all but one oyster. That had crispy browned crumbs, but I was at a loss to find the oyster anywhere in the shell. Being a bit gun-shy at this point, I ordered Buffalo Wings for my main course. The chicken was good and tender, skin pretty crisp, but the sauce was so greasy that during our postprandial concert, I had the worse heartburn in several decades. Dessert was curious, but should have been simple. Ordered vanilla and dulce de leche ice cream. One scope of vanilla and 2 of the dulce de leche. Only problem was that the dulce was not ice cream, but appeared to be a mousse. Very strange. Service was spotty at best. It may be that quality was not a concern of the restaurant since they had trapped customers because of the Fringe Festival's venue.
LaPeg at the FringeArts building is our go-to place for dinner before a show. The food, drinks and service are excellent. We like to arrive early and enjoy one of their specialty cocktails at the bar before being seated. It's really great to have this charming restaurant located at the theater venue.
The food was very good: particularly the appetizers (cold tomato coconut crab soup and grilled quail - succulent!) but also the entrees (cauliflower steak and mahi-mahi). The wine list seemed limited. The service was friendly and kept us on schedule for our Fringe show without feeling rushed.
Amazing food and service! Our waiter Alex was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Clam chowder was best chowder I ever had, period: creamy, smooth and full of fresh clams. Yankee Pot Roast was tender, juicy and flavor. Homemade ice cream was a delight. Fun atmosphere!
Great atmosphere and service. Also the wine and beer selection was small but great.
