Loved this place for restaurant week! We ate on the first floor-definitely should have tried to get on the second. At first thought it was a camera but realized halfway through dinner that the flashing was from a red light camera on the road. Food was absolutely amazing-drinks potent enough that you only need 1! We had a loud group of children near us so it wasn't exactly peaceful so ambiance definitely depends on where you are sitting due to the nature of the restauarant

The service we experienced could use some improvement. We were seated in the 2nd floor dining room at a 9:15PM reservation. Our server made us feel rushed and was more preoccupied with doing side work near the bar area and chatting with co workers than making sure we were OK. It was difficult to get her attention to even get a second drink order. It was obvious she was at the end of her shift and wanted to go. She dropped the check and I believe we were out of there by 10:30 only to go downstairs and see all the happy customers seated in the main dining room, obviously not rushed to leave where they were seated. Will not be coming back. When you finally get out of the house and have a meal indoors you really want to relax a bit....not feel like you are not really welcome in the first place.

Unbeknownst to me, I had made reservations on the 1st day of Philadelphia's Restaurant week.

We selected from the restaurant week offerings. The fish ( cod & cobia ) were perfectly cooked as we're the vegetables. Desserts ( creme bruise & peanut butter pie with otro crust) were wonderful as well.

The only disappointment was clam chowder which was New England style.
It had an unusual heavy smoky taste, May be from the bacon?

We were seated in a separate dining room on 3nd level. Nice& quiet. Noise level too high in many restaurants

The food wasn’t good and this was my second time there. Maybe because it was restaurant week, but the chicken was burned to the point where it was stiff. The waiter was nice but the bartender making the drinks had an attitude.

I heard the steak here was delicious, but that’s an understatement. The filet mignon was to die for; I just wish there were more of these restaurants closer to my home.
But I have absolutely no problem whatsoever driving over an hour just to eat at this place. Absolutely delicious!

My husband took me here for my 44th birthday and we should've went with Capital Grille. The Service was poor and slow. Our server was slow. People came in after us and were served before us. One of my daughters ordered a steak and the other ordered a lobster tail--two separate orders and the cook put the lobster tail on the same plate as the steak and my daughter has a shellfish allergy. The hostess told other patrons "thank you for coming and have good evening" and didn't say a word to me and my family.

Lastly, the ladies bathroom was nasty and disorganized. One of the doors was broke and two toilets were clogged with toilet paper. For the amount of money charged for services, I expected better from this restaurant.

This was the worst meal I’ve had in five years. It took 25 minutes to have service stop by the table and provide us water. The servers had zero clue about the menu, no idea how to manage tables in the restaurant. The drinks took 20 minutes each to get. The wine list was out of several bottles of wine the server had no idea about the wine list and the food was a C at best. I would skip this restaurant on your trip to Philadelphia and I would walk down the street and have a burger at the brewery and save yourself $500.

Their food lackluster. The best thing they got going on is their oysters. Best oysters in the city!! When it comes to the food they're lacking in robust flavor. I'm all about simplicity but I was expecting more.

I took my son here hoping to have a nice dinner while visiting Philly. Unfortunately that was not the case. The food was fair and they charged an up charge of $5.00 for my son to substitute spinach instead of asparagus with his strip steak. My son asked me why since a side order of asparagus on the menu was $9.50 and spinach was $8.00. When we asked the waitress ( who was very good) and she was unable to provide an answer I asked to speak to the manager. Shortly after someone approached our table with no greeting or introduction ( did not even state that they were the manager nor provide their name) and said what’s going on over here? I explained the above and they stated that anytime there is a substitution made from the menu an up charge will be incurred. I explained that the item substituted was less then the side that was offered. Nothing more was said until a few minutes later when the same person ( again never identified themself as the manager) came back to the table and said I have a better explanation from the chef. The entree is only served with 2-3 pieces of asparagus whereas the side of spinach you are substituting is a full order. They then walked away and my son and I said to each other why not just substitute with a half order. Needless to say that person never returned and we were charged the $5 up charge on the bill. Very unprofessional and not the way to treat customers. Will not be returning to this location nor any other locations in the future.

Steak was very tough while the price for it was very high. Light was out in booth, so we dined in semi-darkness. When I gave our Landry card to the server, it was ignored by management. We did not receive Landry credit for the meal.

The slowest service I’ve ever experienced. Was tempted to leave several times, but it was do late we were out of options. In addition to food taking over an hour to get to us, in a fairly empty room, the other clientele were wearing clothes clearly in violation if the various postings, and made the whole experience cheap and not worth the cost.
