Creative food with common sense. All bases are covered for vegetarians to meat eaters. Deserts were also delicious.

Excellent meal and outstanding service (and music playlist in the background)... We dined outside (4 people) and enjoyed oysters, pasta, asparagus appetizer, swordfish... Highly recommend this BYOB restaurant.

Outdoor dining was very pleasant in the attractive raw wood structures. The three course dinner is a very good value. All four of us enjoyed all three courses. The soft shell crabs were the best we ever had.

What a blissful evening. You can immediately sense how much time and effort is put into every course on this crazy-good menu. I appreciate a kitchen that appreciates the earth and the kitchen staff at Pumpkin use fresh produce generously and lovingly. We dined in the streetery which was cozy. Service was great, also. 10/10!

Phenomenal food, presentation and value at this charming BYOB. We’ve been dining here for years and it just keeps getting better. We love every item on the current menu but the real stand outs are: Thai octopus, swordfish, lentil soup, and the oysters.

Every dish was excellent from start to finish. They offered to chill our wine. The beet salad, swordfish, and goat cheesecake were amazing. Much much better food than other more expensive/pretentious restaurants in the city.

We’ve been trying to get a reservation here for 5 years with very difficult work schedules and their very limited seating. Finally a table came available that worked for us at the outdoor seating during the pandemic when we’ve been vaccinated. The ambience was probably not what it had been in years past being right on the sidewalk but the food choices and taste made up for it all. What an outstanding menu! Hope it doesn’t take 5 years to get back to a 2nd time.

Food was very good, portions good. Not very busy but service was still a bit lagging. Also the motorbikes racing by made it very loud. Need more airflow in the outdoor pod as well.

We did the fixed price menu and at first I wasn’t sure if there was anything in the first course that I would like. Totally totally totally wrong. I had croquettes and could not begin to tell you when I’ve ever had them before. My husband had the quail. The flavors and the spices are beyond compare. Everything came out perfectly cooked with the right amount of roasting. Second course was just as amazing. Filet for my husband and shrimp for me. Each bite was, I hate to say it, was “bursting with flavor.” Dessert was delicious and we finished it all. Service was great, our own heated huts with protection from the traffic and fumes. It was an excellent dinner for one of our first nights out and had such a great time celebrating my husband’s birthday

So very accommodating even after our party size changed and we had a food restriction. Everything we tasted was exceptional, highly recommend the quail, asparagus, lamb and flank steak if still on the menu. Can't wait to keep coming back.

Wonderful meal in Pumpkin’s outdoor streetery. Lentil soup for him, broccolini for me, asparagus for friend. Monkfish and lamb sirloin with warm potato salad for all. Everything outstanding. A little unusual but not too much. Imaginative and presented beautifully as we have come to expect from Pumpkin. And BYO which we love and helps us spend the money on the food. So happy Pumpkin has survived the 2020-21 pandemic year. We have taken out from them during this crazy year but this was our first dining with them outdoors this year. We will be back !!

We’ve eaten at a lot of the best places in Philly and NYC...I have to say this is one of our favorites. I can normally pick apart dishes but the menu hit the right note every time. The quail was exquisite, perfectly cooked. Great sear on the monkfish. I normally don’t care about dessert much but both we tried were amazing. Check this place out if you haven’t already. Such a cool BYOB!

delicious food with wonderful presentation and enough choices although it is Prix fixe- this place really does it right. it is a bargain for the price and quality. Wonderful outside cabins were plenty spacious and well constructed. this is a perfect setting, love it outside more that inside eating there. we brought wine and the service and timing was great.

We were there for our anniversary dinner and it was fabulous. I only gave it four stars for the ambiance (5 for everything else) because the street dining was lovely but you are right on the street, so there were a few times that we were smelling other people's cigarettes or marijuana, etc... not at all the fault of the restaurant of course but not a perfect five star eating spot either. The inside looked lovely as well but due to pandemic precautions we ate outside. The food was both flavorful and beautiful, and also the perfect amount to leave us satisfied but not over full. Dessert was FABULOUS - we had the goat cheese cake and the caramel panna cotta. We will definitely return!

I love this place. This is my second time here and I love the preset menu. There is always something I get that is familiar with a twist on it allowing me to taste something new. The chicken was the juiciest chicken I have ever tasted in my life. As a Marylander, I LOVED the crab cake. The desserts are refreshing and yummy. I love treating myself to such fine cuisine and would recommend to anyone who asked about here.
