The food was incredible but our server didn’t check on us once. We had to flag random people for everything from putting our entree orders in, getting more drinks and getting the check. We ended up skipping dessert even though it was my birthday because we knew it would take too long. She was probably having a bad night but even just checking on us once or twice would have gone a long way!

I love this place! The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. They’ve really invested in their outdoor dining space with all the precautions. Heaters, blankets, chair cushions make it very comfortable and they go out of their way to make your dining experience amazing. All waitstaff are so gracious and kind. I’m lucky enough to live in this neighborhood and this is a definite go to spot. Thanks for another great meal!

Amazing service under the circumstances. Very warm outdoor seating, didn’t even need to wear a coat. We did have to wait 10 minutes for a table after we arrived for our reservation but it was to ensure the surfaces were clean and ready. They also provided
complementary Prosecco due to the small wait.

The dining experience under the tent was nice. We have come to Panorama many times and it’s nice to see them still open. Although still chilly under the heated structure, the food and service was great.

I would recommend the Burrata, wasn’t expecting it to be as sweet as it was but paired with the bread it was delicious.

Wine flights are available but you do not get to choose unless you want to spend more $$$

I picked the “Weed” flight and it consisted of White and Red Wine. Very good.


Defiantly get the Ricotta Cake! SO GOOD.

We were in the furthest room from the main entrance and it seemed like there needed to be two waiters. We had 4 people at my table and needed plates from appetizers cleared because the main course plates didn’t fit.

Bruschetta appetizer was serviced on three tiers... and had three types: Tuna, standard tomatoes and red pepper.

Tuna didn’t work for me but the rest were good. I would recommend the Tuna Carpaccio. Fresh. Flavorful and light for an app.

I would suggest putting two waiters and a bus boy in that room because one waiter could not handle it all even the best of the best.


Request to sit outside they have heat lamps and the view of the Ben Franklin Bridge is worth it!

We had an amazing experience! It was our mini moon. We were treated like king and queen which made us feel special.

We are from Philly. We couldn’t go away for our honeymoon because of Covid. Panorama made us feel like we were away from Philly. It was perfect! Thank you!

The place was great (ambiance). My wife’s food was good and mine was decent. The service was terrible as was the seating. We specifically requested indoors but leaving the door open at night made it too cold. I’m sure the place will be better once things get back to normal. Disappointing considering we travelled from the NJ Shore for my wife’s birthday.

We went to Panorama to celebrate my birthday. We ate outside. As in the past, the staff gave us a complimentary Prosecco to celebrate which is typically what they do if they know you are celebrating something.

The food was delicious as always. We shared the house salad, antipasti and roasted mushrooms. I’m so glad they have appetizer portions of pasta as I always want to get some when we go. I got the Casio et pepe pasta, and my husband got the chitarra. All great!

Their wine list has shrunk this year since COVID, but is still quite extensive. Their menu was pretty much the same as in the past.

The only downside was the traffic noise from 95 since we were outside but that was our choice.
