Over the past few years, the tract of Montgomery County between Horsham and Blue Bell has become something of a hot spot for exciting new restaurants. Thanks to Habib Troudi, it’s about to get one more in the form of Panache Wood Fire Grill. Carved out of the building that had been home to L’Angolo Blue, an Italian restaurant that closed earlier this year, Panache is based on a “simple concept,” as Troudi says, offering thin-crust Neapolitan-style pizzas cooked in a wood-burning, coalfired oven, as well as prime steaks, seafood and other new American cuisine. Once complete, the space will have two bars, one of which will also house the massive 10,000-pound oven needed to crisp up those pizzas and cook other dishes in castiron skillets.

My wife wanted to go here for lunch, so when she is buying lunch (I buy dinner, wonder why), I figured why not.
The service was below average however I think the waitress saw my body language or eye contact and tried to come around. I think she had a rough night, the night before. Nobody smiled.
Our food was very good, can’t complain there. But the service was off.
There was a heavy set man and I don’t know if he owned the restaurant, but it looked like he had some say there since he was talking to other groups.
He helped with the setting of tables, but had his fingers in the empty water glasses as he placed them on the clean tables.
We did not get served within a reasonable amount of time and had to request service. We were not served any bread and I had an entree.
The Bloody Mary I had as their special tasted like tomato juice.
This wasn’t my choice and the next time my wife suggest this place and she is paying, I’ll say I pass.
Again, the food was very good. So if you want great taste, this place was spot on. But if you want service and friendliness, eh! Maybe it was an odd day.

Service was mediocre and it was very loud in the restaurant. Other than that, atmosphere and food was great!

We have been several times and enjoy the food and drinks. The menu has good variety and the atmosphere is energetic. We were not rushed despite being a busy Saturday night.

There wasn’t any indication there would be a smaller, specified menu for Valentine’s Day. It was pretty disappointing to walk into. Also, you had to order appetizers and entrees at the same time due to the volume of customers. It felt rushed.

It was Valentine’s Day, so they had a special menu that was a little pricier than their regular menu. With that being said, the food was delicious! Both of our entrees were excellent. The noise level is pretty high, and then to add live music did not make the ambiance too good. Food and service excellent, ambiance not so good!

Very disappointed
Been there many times before and enjoyed everything
However tonight seems they had booked the room that we and other couples were having dinner in for a large group which caused significant confusion and distractions as the group started to come in while others were still eating
As a result, there were no tables available for the group who were squeezing in wherever they could or moved amongst the few tables that were available
In addition, as a couple got up, members of the large group sat at the still dirty table
Very poor planning which spoiled a usually enjoyable night out for dinner

Panache is a beautiful restaurant. It was our first time trying it. We had a 7:00 reservation and we were seated by 7:15. It took quite a while for our waiter to come and take our drink orders. Once he brought the drinks, he then left and we didn't see him again to take our dinner order for at least another 20 minutes. We ordered an appetizer, 3 pizzas and a pasta entrée. The pasta came out significantly earlier than the other food. The food was delicious, but the service was NOT good. I was very disappointed. The waiter refilled our water glasses as he was giving us our check. I'd like to give them another chance...hoping the service is better next time.

The restaurant was crowded. The tables were too close together.
The waitstaff could hardly get past the tables.
It was so loud, we couldn’t hear each other speaking.

Not a place I would recommend.

The food and service were excellent. We were seated next to the bar area. The entertainment was very good but much too loud. It was difficult to hear conversations at the table. Next time, we will make our reservation with a note to please be seated away from the bar area.

Exceedingly loud,even considering that it was a Friday night with a live band. We sat very far away from the band & still had to yell to be heard. Wait staff was great, food was tasty but nothing really special. Parking lot is very small, so we had to valet park.

Not great. Slow service. Not great food. But the cheesesteak egg Roma’s were great. Second visit, thought we’d give it another try. - probably last.

This was our first time here and it did not disappoint. Parking was not great, they did offer valet. Noise level was on the loud side so be aware of that before you go. Food was amazing will definitely go back.

We were with another couple and three of the four entrees were fine. The Chicken Parm was burnt. That is unacceptable.
The noise level was intolerable. The restaurant was full and there are no sound absorbing materials. We were in a booth and were unable to hear one another.
Finally, the wait staff repeatedly came back to our table to clear items. They were intrusive and annoying. The last items that they retrieved was my glass of water that wasn't finished but they felt it should be removed. There were several open tables at that point in the evening and there was no one waiting. I guess they wanted to leave for the evening.
I will not be back which is sad since it is convenient to our house.

Our appetizers and entrees were excellent. The $9 cheesecake was dry and overpriced and in hindsight I should have told our waitress(Rosey) who was lovely

Beautiful restaurant with excellent service. We were a little surprised it was valet parking but I guess that's Bluebell for ya. Food was good although most of it was very rich, lots of butter, cream and mascarpone cheese. Portions are huge.

If you have 2.5 hours to spare to eat brunch at a fairly empty place and dont mind seriously slow service and raw food then this is the place to go! Party of 10 for brunch yesterday and only a few other guests eating too. Wait staff walking around etc so can't understand why on earth the service was so slow and food was undercooked. Other entrees like sweet potato pancakes and monte Cristo (ham& cheese not melted) pretty tasteless. Place looks nice but should have gone across the street to blue bell inn for our holiday gathering.

First time here, table wasn’t ready even though we had prior reservation. Then we were seated at a very awkward spot, which I refused to take and asked to be seated elsewhere, and to their credit they did give us a better spot.
Took too long to set the table, the server help kept bringing cloth napkins and silverware one set at at time ... I mean knives, then forks and last spoons.
Our server was nice and on point, kept asking how we’re doing throughout, food was ok nothing special they had a Starter ( appetizer) “Mezza” which to regular joe it might be ok but I grew up around having Mezza all the time and unfortunately theirs was lacking big time. I suggest taking a look to Mediterranean or Middle Eastern menus if want to offer something authentic.
The restaurant is very clean and nice but the menu is definitely overpriced.
