    Pretty good for the most part but slightly underwhelmed and small portions, we ordered the extras including the oysters and the bread which were definitely not worth it. The bread costs extra and is just 4 tiny slices of extremely burnt plain bread which just rubbed me the wrong way on principle more than cost. They oysters were small and plain, not the place to get these in philly. The steak was the best of the entrees and the peach dessert is definitely the best one to get.

    Menu changes based on what's fresh/in season. Tonight's made great use of tomatoes, sweet corn and baby lettuce. This kitchen is simply FANTASTIC! Creative but respectful of the ingredients. I left with a happy mouth!

    We have been loyal customers for years. We’re not sure what happened last night but the food was very mediocre. The entrees and the desserts were the problem. I ordered the vegetarian eggplant dish. It was cold slices of eggplant with an excessively smoky flavor over what looked like babba Ganesh dip. Over the top was some type of plain lettuce. It looked as unappetizing as it tasted and was a very small portion to boot. My husband’s shrimp looked so bare . It was these boiled shrimp swimming in a watery sauce over some corn— no color and little flavor. The desserts were disappointing as well. My peach cobbler tasted like the crusty part was old stale bread rather than pastry or crumbles. I left most of it over. I hope they can get the cooking and presentation back together. We won’t return for a very long while.

    As always, the experience at Pumpkin was nothing less than spectacular. We have had so many disappointing service experiences at restaurants recently it’s good to know that someplace has been able to maintain its very high standards, despite the difficulty of hiring and keeping good employees these days.

    Very cute ambiance. Let’s start there and now for the review! In contrast to the setting, we were stuck between two different two tops within inches on either side of us. This typically wouldn’t be an issue but, the restaurant was half full and had ample space to seat us else where. First course came and was lackluster to say the least. The qual was cooked well and grits were good but it was accompanied by some chow chow that resembled roasted peppers and onions for a sausage sandwich. Meh. Chickpea farrinata came as if the dish was upside down. The tuna confit and everything else was underneath the farrinata. Just a bad presentation. Second course, the flank steak option came with salad on top of the meat almost upside down again. that salad could have been from ruby Tuesdays, rough chopped tomato and lettuce. Seems like a complete after thought. If it wasn’t for the bread at an additional charge and oysters that we added to the prefixed meal it was at the point of walking out and calling it a night. Third course, desserts come, a chocolate torte and a lavender posset. Torte was good but coincided with the earlier courses. So so. The posset could have been a lemony parfait didn’t care for it at all. Payed left our 20% and they have some work to do. Instagram and other Philly eatery suggestions missed the mark with such high praise. This is honesty but if they rotate their menu I’d give it one more shot and hope for the best but this can not compete with an Ambrosia just around the corner.

    Excellent food and service in a charming atmosphere. Only two issues: 1. pace of meal too rapid and, 2. if you are going to serve flank steak that rare you should tell the customer in advance (they didn't ask for a requested temperature so I switched and found it delicious but my dining partner who ordered it could not eat it).

    There were four of us eating a variety of dishes and all were beautifully presented, creatively prepared, and tasted delicious. I especially enjoyed the chilled Carrot and Beet soup and the Yellow Fin Tuna, but all four entrees were delicious. The cancellation fee prevented us from trying it before now. We rarely cancel a reservation, but it does happen now and then.
