    Excellent service and food. The only complaint was the automatic gratuity for only two people, usually that only kicks in for parties of 6 or more.

    First, our server was great! Sweet girl with a really nice personality. Our appetizers were very good (shrimp and octopus). However, my chicken Marsala was very chewy and rubbery. I’m not sure how chicken gets screwed up.

    A little off of the cluster of other Center City restaurants and close to Jefferson Hospital is Morea. My wife and I (both in our 50’s) went on a Thursday night. The place is upbeat, GREAT playlist (speaking as a former DJ)and slick in design. It wasn’t crowded at all. Our waitress (I always try but fail to remember names, she had sorta long fingernails… She was awesome) My wife had the braised short rib which was tender and tasty and I had the lamb chops that were seared and seasoned just right. The mash potatoes were a bit of a miss, sorta dry but that being said, I’m not a fan of mash potatoes anyhow, not sure why I didn’t ask to sub. My drink was sorta a fig , bourbon concoction and was good. I can tell that the bartender new what he was doing as I appreciate nice craft cocktails. The price was on par for a center city restaurant . If you’re ok going just a little off the cluster of Center City restaurants I would recommend this place.

    Good Food - Great Drinks. Service was a little slow. 8 min wait for a soda refill and about 15 min wait for the check. Lobster Roll was great but had shell in the mix. Philly Cheesesteak tasted good the meat seasoning might not be for everyone.

    The server was clearly inebriated. She kept forgetting things we asked for. Got our entire drink order wrong. She decided to clean the table off next to us and cleaning spray flew on to our table. My 2nd time there and this time was a horrible experience

    This was my second time at Morea and definitely my last. The first time we were a large party and the server forgot to put the order in for 3 people at the table so every ate and was finished by the time we got our food. Figured it was just a bad day, so I gave it another go. THIS TIME WAS MUCH WORST! The food was very good, it never disappoints. But the service is always bad. The host was rude. She tried sitting me a wet table, said she didn’t have anything to dry it with and then attempted to put the PAPER menus on the soaking wet table. The server seemed to be allover the place, like she was high on coke or uppers. Not to mention she had the dirtiest nails; like she was in the back of the restaurant playing in soil. My friend and I ordered mocktails and were served alcohol, which is impermissible for us to drink. We only received half of our food and assumed it was coming since it seems to be there way, but we never got it. We received the bill after the server cleared the table, so they just nixed the food and additional mocktail. The manager was just very “oh well” when I mentioned it on the way out the door. Horrible!

    I took my Bestie on a date, and this was the perfect place. The drinks were good and although they didn’t taste strong (which was perfect for me) we def still felt them. The food was great and our server was awesome as well. Only thing I would change would be adding dessert to the menu. I will def visit again.

    Our waiter Lami was very friendly. Food wasn't the greatest- we ordered the strawberry stiracha chicken and waffles, cannoli French toast, and the garden omelet . I liked the idea of the mimosa flights but the avocado toast paired with had no flavor.

    Our server was fantastic. The butternut squash soup had an offputting flavor and the cauliflower steak was more like cauliflower on rice. I will say I did enjoy the entrée even though it did not seem to fit the description.

    Very underwhelmed with everything. The service was extremely slow, drink service was disappointing. My cappuccino was luke warm at best with no foam and a latte was served in an espresso cup. Chocolate milk wasn’t chocolate at all. Table was dirty and sticky . Food was brought out so far apart that I was finished with my breakfast before my daughter got her food. And we were told there was no sausage when the food arrived. The manager didn’t seem to care and had the attitude, what can you do??

    We went to Morea when they first opened and weren’t blown away. Decided to try again and bring a group for brunch. Service was horrible, food was horrible and we couldn’t wait to get out of there. Mimosa flight, not champagne! Cheap malt liquor Verde was used. We couldn’t believe it when we saw them pouring it into our glasses. It took 20 to 30 minutes to get our table of seven our drinks and our server kept saying that the bar was busy but there were very few people in the restaurant and three bartenders at the time. Much of the food actually came out before the drinks and it was less than desirable. I had hoped that the menu and food had improved since the first time I was there when it first opened but it actually was worse this time. Most of the food was left on the table untouched because it wasn’t edible and we requested our checks and left as quickly as we could to find someplace else to dine.

    The food was very good. But I don’t know if I would go back. The service was veryyyy underwhelming. I didn’t like that they forgot to bring me my cheesecake, which was part of my restaurant week deal. I waited so long for it that I forgot it when I left even though I paid for it. I sat at the bar and was still overlooked. My waiter was not welcoming at all. After asking for my id, she started talking about the host not doing their job which was very unprofessional. She never came to check on me. And when I finally got her attention, she act like it was an inconvenience every single time! It honestly seem like she was high off an upper! Me and some of the other people at the bar were talking about how they need to drug test their staff cuz whew she was a mess!

    Went for brunch, orange juice seemed like it was out of a minute maid bottle and it was room temperature. Omelette was just eggs with veggies stuffed between the fold. Hash browns were way too hot, as if they were microwaved just before serving, but they did taste pretty good. Hash browns eggs benedict tasted good but egg whites in the poached eggs were still a bit runny in the middle. Overall not bad but was hoping for better quality. Food was prepared fairly quickly and there were maybe 5 or 6 tables so not overly busy.
