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.

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!

Very average overall, menu could use a refresh with a better direction. Fish was overcooked and the foie gras appetizer was over dressed and poorly matched with other flavors. It wasn't a bad experience, it just left me wondering if I would want to go back.

New England Clam Chowder was delicious! Very flavorful! The rest of the meal felt flat in the flavor department. Meals were cooked to perfection (meat was tender, vegetables al dente, etc.) but seasonings were lacking or nonexistent.

Brunch was super. Our table shared the Blueberry Beignets which were delish. And everyone enjoyed their meals which included Biscuits and Gravy, Whitefish Dip with bagel chips, Creamed Corn, toast and sunnyside up egg, and Eggs Benedict. Cheerful service, great atmosphere. Highly recommend.

The restaurant had a great view, reminiscent of DUMBO. I picked it for the scenery since my parents were visiting. The restaurant was beautiful and had greats service, but the food wasn't that great and was a little pricey. I would definitely go back for the bar and scenery.

The Thanksgiving Dinner menu item was not good at all. It was cold and the food had no flavor. However, the service staff was excellent from A to Z. Chris, as well as the other staff, did an outstanding job. The wait staff took the item off the bill and replaced it with the Salmon which was good.

The atmosphere and service were outstanding! Our waiter, Chris, went far beyond the call of duty. He was very kind, helpful, and considerate of the group. He provided great insight. The food was good....but not incredible. Just good. Great presentation. Would go again...because the service was so spectacular.

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.

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.

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.
