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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

Pumpkin has built creative and cool dining pods outside, each can sit up to four people and each has a heater as well. The three course meal for $45 was delicious and an outstanding value. There is a 90 minute limit per reservation--but that was not an issue at all. The service was excellent too. It is really impressive how some restaurants have worked so hard, and succeeded, at pivoting in this environment. We had ordered takeout from here last spring too. And will certainly be back to dine outdoors again this winter.

The outdoor dining setup is one of the best I’ve seen/experienced in Philly and the food was absolutely fantastic, everything was PERFECT. We had the pork belly and shrimp as the first course, heaven. Then, my husband had the duck and I had the monkfish. The monkfish was the best I’ve ever had and his duck was wonderfully delicious too, but I loved my monkfish and it deserves a second shout out. The desserts were divine, our service was superb, I cannot wait for our next reservation.
