    Had a wonderful experience at Midnight Iris! Our server, Doris, was very attentive and made us feel right at home. We also found out that the kitchen had an all-female staff and the recipes were homemade. Highly recommend the chicken nuggets and pretzels for an appetizer. The entrees were delicious and the dessert was perfect. Excellent service and wonderful atmosphere. We will definitely be back in the very near future! Thank you, Midnight Iris!

    We had an excellent experience at Midnight Iris. It's my new favorite restaurant in Philly and I can't recommend it enough. The restaurant is cool, service spectacular, and food was unique and really good. Good with kids too because they are so nice and have board games for them to play.

    We have been here a few times and it is consistently an A+. We love the Veggie burger, fries, salad, desserts AND the special cocktails. The ambience is very comfortable and the staff is welcoming. It’s a neighborhood gem!

    My husband and I decided to try somewhere new for Valentine’s dinner and we heading here. A neighborhood bar/restaurant that was wonderful. We were welcomed by Doris behind the bar and were seated right away. Doris was our waitress as well . Great drinks, great service, great food . Not an extensive menu but plenty of great options, good vegetarian options. I loved the decor, one thing I would say was the seating was close together.

    10 of us came together from across the country for an annual conference. We are close friends and we look for a special place for dinner each year. Midnight Iris met our expectations and more. Caitlin, the owner, and Doris, our server extraordinaire, created an experience for us that we won’t soon forget. The space was fun and comfortable and beautiful. I personally have never eaten at a place like it and will absolutely go back with a few friends or a group, no doubt. If you’re looking at this review, I stand behind it 100% and suggest you check this place out. If you’re looking for a cool and relaxed and delicious place where you and your guests will have a nice meal, and enjoy drinks and/or table games if you like, you won’t be disappointed.

    I, once again, had the privilege to dine at Midnight Iris, while also doing quizzo. The buffalo wings and buffalo cauliflower salad were both top notch. The drink menu is awesome with a lot of variety. Outside of someone’s house party, where else can you order Jell-O shots?!

    The food is always good, but the ambiance and people are really great. All of the staff at Midnight Iris are personable and friendly, and you get that “neighborhood bar” feel but at a more upscale level. It’s a nice place to go for dinner or to hang out for a drink.

    Walked in as they were opening. Downstairs bar is very nice, great service, and a fun place to strike up a conversation. You feel like you're in someone's living room. Dining room is also great and food was phenomenal. Apps were great. Looking forward to coming back soon. This is a hidden gem in Philly.

    I ADORE Keen. We had a meal full of flavor and utter deliciousness. Even the salad was perfection. They line the bowl with house ricotta ❤️. The garlic in each dish was exactly right. We loved the two people who were covering the dining room, both so warm and fun. Seriously, go here!!

    This was our first time at Keen and we loved everything about it. Let me begin by recognizing the staff for being so accommodating and upbeat-the service was nothing short of excellent. The food was even more excellent! I had the fish tacos and they were great. All 6 of us loved our food including the bacon. I wouldn’t have ordered the bacon but when I tried it I understood what all the fuss was about. They did not rush us out of the restaurant which made us feel relaxed. Great decor and ambiance. I highly recommend Keen and I will be back.

    The menu was completely different than what was online and replaced with the most basic of brunch options. The food took 40 minutes despite us being the only party in the restaurant (that should have tipped us off). My eggs arrived a few degrees below Luke warm. The waiter was very nice but the restaurant was pretty bad. With all the wonderful Philly options out there, this is one I would take a hard pass on.

    Keen was recommended by a friend - so for our first Philly dinner we chose Keen and it did not disappoint. Great service. Loved the Moscow Mule cocktail. A great start were the mushroom rice balls with celery sage pesto - nice flavors - 5 nice sized rice balls. We couldn't resist getting the PIG CANDY - Lean maple glazed bacon. We got to try some new items to be added to the upcoming spring menu - 2 salads and we can't decide which one we liked best --both unique. A spring asparagus salad with watermelon radish. The asparagus was cooked just right - crisp - not over or undercooked - really perfect. And a raw spicy broccoli salad with spring mix, sprouts, lacto-fermented rhubarb with a house made hot sauce vinaigrette - all the textures and flavors came together so nicely. We went all the way and also ordered the pork tacos (mustard rubbed roast pork with chipotle aioli, mango, black bean salsa, pickled red onion and cilantro. These had a nice "kick". Every dish was carefully prepared and served. We weren't rushed and being able to have a normal conversation was a treat. Check this hidden gem out. I know we'll be back!
