Inventive dishes beautifully prepared. Delicious! Service absolutely appropriate--attentive but not overbearing. We hadn't been back since before the pandemic, but it was even better than I remembered. This place is a gem!

Great service in a cute spot! Food was yummy - the desserts were delicious (chocolate torte and olive oil cake), and one of the starters was a real standout (carrots). Fun to have a daily changing menu!

really delicious food and warm, friendly service. best shrimp and grits ever! nice that the restaurant is BYOB -- we started with champagne and had a nice white burgundy with our meals. only downside is that it was a very loud crowd the night we were there, so it wasn't easy to have a conversation.

Very, very good. All three courses were excellent (lamb toast, pasta with pesto, panna cotta), especially the pasta. Service was completely satisfactory--staff were clearly busy as the restaurant was at capacity but were friendly and efficient. Will definitely return for special occasions.

Our meal was absolutely delicious. Probably one of my favorite meals since moving to Philly in 2020. The portions are generous, the flavors are complex and you can tell there is a lot of thought put into the preparation of each dish. All of this made even better since it's BYOB and the price (at $50 for a 3-course meal) can't be beat! We came here as a pre-celebration for our wedding anniversary and will definitely be back soon with friends.

We've been back to Pumpkin many times in the last two years, thanks to the creative menus and comfortable (and safe) outdoor dining in the streetery. Always a consistently great experience.

We had a great time. Food was inventive and uniformly good with good size portions. We plan to return 2-3 times per year. The barriers to coming more frequently right now is the limited choices on the menu and value. Service was very good and they responded to our request to substitute an appetizer for a dessert, since neither one of us are big dessert eaters, but they did tell us that this was not a request they could guarantee in the future. The Beet salad was especially good.

We so enjoy Pumpkin! While it can’t be as frequent as we’d like, we do meet friends there a couple of times a year. This time, I tried the quail as a first course—so delicate and tasty. Good reports on the beet salad, mushroom soup and mussels escabeche. I had the always delicious flank steak, but heard from the others that the pasta, swordfish and duck breast were also perfectly prepared and mighty tasty. We all had the pana cotta, always a light yet rich finish. Kudos to the chef!

My boyfriend’s birthday was coming up and I did a lot of research on best restaurant in Philly (within my budget) and this consistently came up. We both have a deep appreciation for food and every course delivered! The duck breast was the most incredible dish, and I’m sure we’ll continue talking about for the next week. When making the reservation, I selected “special event - birthday”, but was not expecting anything extra. For the final course, our server brought out the dessert with a candle in it which was a sweet touch. We sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance. Will come here again!

Food is delicious. We had a mushroom soup that was unlike any mushroom soup I've ever had, marvelous broth, delicious vegetables, flavorful, just wonderful. I'd go back just for that soup, although everything else was great as well. My Wahoo was perfectly prepared, my husband's duck was excellent, desserts were fabulous. The food was marvelous, and our server was a sweetheart. I can't say enough good about this restaurant. It was suprisingly great, yet healthy because there were so many interesting vegetables in everything. We both really enjoyed our meal.
