Four of us went for an outdoor Restaurant Week experience. Wonderful food. Friendly and welcoming service. Pleasant outdoor setup, and got to see all the action of Old City and Front Street. Can’t wait to return. Thank you!

Went for restaurant week and sat outside with my family. The food was fantastic but service was extremely slow. It was crowded for restaurant week but it took close to an hour to get our drinks and put our food order in. Once we ordered, food came out quickly and everything was excellent. Outside tables are adjacent to I-95 so it’s a little loud, if you aren’t opposed to sitting inside, take that option.

Music in speaker was not harmonious with the atmosphere...competed with the road noise. Portions very small and wine! 5oz pours for $20- ridiculously high and chintzy

This restaurant is as good as I remember. Great food, wonderful service. (Thanks, Matt) Sat outside so the sound of I-95 is um present. Still worth the trip from south jersey.

My friend and I had lovely experience at Panorama! We went for restaurant week. The menu had a lot of options, the food was delicious and the service was great. We ate outside, so it was a little noisy, but overall very nice.

The food was outstanding although the menu was more limited than normal on their re-opening following COVID-19 closure. The roasted beet and watermelon salad is highly recommended as is the braciole. This is truly a wine lovers place to dine and the Maitre'd, Bill, provided outstanding guidance for wine pairings.

Visited for restaurant week. The pasta starters, tortellini and the wild boar rigatoni were the best part of the meal. I ordered the NY Strip as my main and it was tough to cut, tough to chew and flavorless. They changed it out quickly for me with another menu item. The chicken dish was definitely better than the steak but would not return specifically for it. The desserts were good, again nothing I would rave about, the cappuccino was amazing! Service was great and ambiance was relaxing. The person I was with has dined here before, thinks it may have been an off night, I would return and give it one more shot on their recommendation.

Thank You Panorama for a nice birthday dinner... Restaurant Week 3-course menu was delicious and the wine selections wonderful... Professional and pleasant service all around. The location is great for those who would like to stroll the waterfront or old city history before or after their meal. An easy recommendation!

We loved our dinner at Panorama! The calamari was perfect and my boyfriend and I both loved our pasta dishes (the gnocchi was amazing). The staff was kind, friendly, and amazing. We ate outdoors and there was a little noise from the roads but they had music playing which made for a perfect date night. Highly recommend!

Great variety to the menu. Wines are very reasonably priced with good advice available by sommelier on selections. Food has been great, no matter what I have chosen. Mushroom appetizer is great.

The food was outstanding! Great wine selection. The cocktail was very good that my daughter ordered. My husband ordered a diet coke for $4. It was the size of a cocktail with mostly ice. They refilled it for another $4. Most restaurants do not charge for a refill of soda.

We snagged a last minute reservation at an outdoor table on a weeknight after work. This was the first dining outing for many of us since the beginning of the pandemic, so we were happily encouraged to see the many measures that were taken to ensure our safety. The staff, from the cheerful, accommodating hostess, to our waiter, the floor supervisor and the manager all visited our table and made sure that we were having the best experience possible. The outdoor seating area was cozy and pretty and the table spacing was perfect for preventing virus transmission while allowing for the illusion of a warm and welcoming dining area!

We did Restaurant Week and sat outside at a table on the sidewalk outside of the restaurant. Additional tables were set up on Front Street. The food was delicious (3 courses for $35, with full menu) and the cocktails were spot on (rum punch for her and old fashioned for me). Tables were spaced out appropriately and staff wore masks and face shields, so we were in compliance with health restrictions.

As we were close to I-95 and a stretch of Front Street, lots of street noise, so not the idyllic al fresco dining but enjoyable just the same.

I will go this restaurant again (esp. with such close proximity to Arden Theater down the side alley). And next time I will engage my inner vinophile (wino!) again, as their wine flights/tastings are fantastic and worth the visit on their own.
