Delicious meal with very attentive service. All precautions were in place for a safe dining experience outdoors, which was an important factor for my guest and I. The outdoors space was comfortably spaced, inviting lighting/decor and warm! Highly recommended!
Even outdoors on a frigid night, we loved being here. Delicious food, fast service, reasonable prices, and just a fun night! The heater worked well, too!
Pumpkin BYOB's menu is consistently creative, delicious, and an unbelievable value, and this visit was no exception. The outdoor dining is partially enclosed and heated sufficiently to be comfortable if dressed warmly, even in 32 degree weather. Service is not quite as attentive as it would be indoors, but excellent under the circumstances. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
We loved the outdoor heated parklet at Pumpkin! We went for Valentine’s Day so it was a bit pricey but the food was excellent and wonderful atmosphere.
In 16 years of finding Pumpkin to be our favorite Philly restaurant, we have always enjoyed exquisite food, prepared and presented beautifully, and served expertly and knowledgeably. This Valentine's Day was no exception, even when dining outdoors in their cute and cozy "streetery." Thank you Chef Ian and Hilary for another wonderful experience!
Everything about the experience was outstanding. Food was excellent. Service fantastic. And the outdoor space is gorgeous. It was 30 degrees but the heater made us toasty warm. Highly recommend!
Quaint and lovely atmosphere with very attentive staff. Everyone followed strict COVID-19 policies which felt safe our entire time. The food was excellent and very much worth the price for 3 course meal! BYO is a nice touch as well! Will definitely return/recommend!
They have done a really good job with outdoor dining and making sure it's safe and warm. The time limit seemed kind of quick for our group but it was still all very delicious and a nice evening.
Consistently delicious! They are happy to accommodate all diet preferences including plant-based. They provide a nicely socially-distanced and warm outdoor eating environment. One of the best places to eat in the city...either during a pandemic and during healthier and safer times.
Delicious food, wonderful service, and still the best outdoor dining experience in Philly. The heating is very good.
Absolutely delicious as always. A must!
Very cold outside but comfortable in dining area that had nice individual spaces. Food was awesome. Highly recommend.
I thought it was way too expensive for the quality and amount of food and the seating area was pretty cold...
Wonderfull meal in a unique setting, in a very trying environment. We ate outside with weather in the high 30's -low 40's and were comfortable. Highly recommended.
Wonderful venue and amazing food! Professional and courteous staff. Extremely safe and accommodating venue for those nervous about dining out in the pandemic. Pumpkin went above and beyond to protect customers and employees. We will absolutely be back!
The 3 course meal was outstanding, and the outdoor seating is very pretty.
Fantastic meal, you can taste every ingredient. The individual space is welcoming and has a warm heater. The wait staff makes you feel welcomed. Truly a fantastic meal!
A very safe and elegant outdoor dining experience during COVID. Outstanding food and kind servers. Thank you for doing such a great job!
Food was delicious and outdoor table "cabana" was heated and comfortable. And very safe!
This was our third time at Pumpkin during "pandemic times"--once with takeout and twice dining outdoors this winter in the awesome heated private pods. For us, it is worth the drive from Moorestown NJ--you can't get that food quality and creativity where we live. The three courses for $45 is a bargain, especially with BYOB (and the great efforts the restaurant has made in paying for heaters and costs of providing a safe dining experience). We've dined at Pumpkin off and on over the years, but forgot just how good it was. We look forward to continuing our patronage there...and returning again during these winter months.
We enjoyed outdoor dining due to COVID-19. The ambiance was wonderful and the food was fantastic. I had the warm cabbage salad to start with and the gnocchi with lamb ragut was out of this world. However, the portion size of the entree was tragically small. Such a shame. I loved that the restaurant was BYOB. That's always a money saver! The sticky toffee pudding I had for dessert was delicious too!
We have not gone out to eat much during covid but felt totally safe at pumpkin. The booths they created outside are warm and cozy and the decor is chic and beautiful. We had a wonderful dinner and loved being able to feel safe while enjoying a date night.
As usual an ever surprising and delicious array of dishes, from appetizers to desserts . The venue is non only beautiful but also perfect in those social distancing times. Floor heaters work beautifully! Unsurprisingly, the staff treats their guests just like that: welcome and treasured guests they enjoy seeing!
Yummy. Food makes the camping out experience worthwhile
Our dinner at Pumpkin was a delightful experience. Firstly, their outdoor tables are cozy and the heaters are good - we still wore coats, though. The waitstaff is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. The food was incredible! We had a mix of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes and all were amazing. Best of the bunch: carrot appetizer, quail appetizer, and the duck entree. Plus the bread should not be missed! The best of the desserts was the maple panna cotta with blueberries. Considering this is a $45 prix fixe, it is one of the best deals in the city!
Incredible experience! The food was fabulous and the ambiance was warm and cozy. Highly recommend!
Great set up for outdoor dining. It felt warm and cozy despite it being in the 30s outside during NYE. The NYE menu was amazing. Also very gluten free friendly!
The food here was fabulous and a great value for the money. We loved every bite!
For our anniversary, the weather was a little cold, but the food was wonderful.
Had a wonderful time enjoying my husbands birthday! We dined outside due to covid, so noise level is not the establishment’s fault. Will come again!
We had a wonderful dinner last weekend "on the patio" at Pumpkin. Their outdoor set-up is festive and fun, and we felt at-ease and enjoyed our meal. Which was delicious! We hadn't been in a while, and we need to go more often. The Sunday night prix fixe is an excellent value, and there's as much culinary attention to detail as ever.
We love Pumpkin. Food is always delicious and consistent. Last night with the 30* weather, we had a heater and felt toasty! We had the shrimp gumbo which was outstanding! Would definitely recommend dining at Pumpkin! Even with the cold weather everyone was so friendly and attentive!
Our third time eating in the cozy outdoor space at Pumpkin and it was perfect. We had dinner there on Christmas Eve - it was raining, but we were super cozy in our little cabin! we had our own heater to keep things warm and the roof and windows to keep the rain out. In fact, the rain on the corrugated plastic roofing was very pleasant, it was like being inside by the fireplace and listening to the rain on the roof.
Goes without saying that the food was awesome, that is always the case here.
I guess COVID definitely has an impact on the quality of food. Less impressive compared to our visits before the pandemics. Still a decent option for outdoor dining though. Do wish the dishes can contain more fresh vegetables though.
The food was delicious, but very light. I was still a bit hungry when we left. The stalls outside were beautifully decorated and comfortable. It was a lovely experience!!
So good! Duck amazinggggg. Salt potatoes always good too.
Pumpkin has done everything right. They created beautiful space on the street for diners. Each “ room” seats up to four diners. It’s festively decorated . Service was great. We had two menu options. A 4 course Hanukkah meal or a 3 course meal. We chose the 3 courses. Each one was delicious.
This was the second time we visited in their outdoor set up which is so attractive while enabling a safe dining option. Food was fantastic— top favorites were flank steak, duck and salted potatoes. Love that the menu is always changing, service is reliably attentive and value is amazing. Great job Pumpkin! Hang in there; you are too good of a restaurant to lose to Covid.
Space cozy, warm and inviting and despite being on South Street it was surprisingly quiet. Food and service excellent as always!
My wife and I really enjoyed our meal at Pumpkin! The outdoor dining is very warm and each group has plenty of space. The staff is attentive and the 3-course meals are delicious. My duck entree hit the spot. We hope to be back again soon.
