Veal, sole and lobster tail are usually on the rotating menu and guests should always try the R2L dessert menu which includes milk chocolate hazelnut gateau or pumpkin spice cheesecake.

R2L Ratings and Reviews
Phenomal staff and great service. Every time I go to other restaurants I always compare the waiters and waitresses to the service I have received at R2L. The past two waiters I have had at R2L are people I will remember for the rest of my life. R2L is the standard for exceptional service! The cocktails are well worth the price and the place has very romantic vibes.
It was such a great time. Both of our birthdays were this week, which the waitress noticed on our ids. She surprised us with our restaurant week deserts with happy birthday written in chocolate. It was adorable! And the food was to die for. And!! Because I recommended it so much my roommate is there for dinner tonight with her boyfriend!!
From the minute we were greeted downstairs before going up the elevator to when we were leaving, we were treated so warmly, the staff at R2L was second to none. The teamwork they do to serve you was wonderful, they were very attentive, did not have to request anything extra. We went during restaurant week so the menu was very limited but we all got the Petite Filet which was so good and was served already cut up like medallions. The 2 women in our party were very satisfied with their meals, but myself and the other gentleman were still a little hungry, the portions could have been a little larger. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and where they sat us we had an incredible view of the city.
Awesome. The views were spectacular! But, the best part was the Chef’s cuisine. It was fantastic food! Simply delicious. I’ve been to many restaurants, even had a food blog, but took a chance on this place and it did not disappoint! This Chef should be doing challenges against the very best!! Why is he not on Top Chef? Why is he not trying to beat Bobby Flay? Why doesn’t he have a James Beard Award? I was a fan after my appetizer and the hits kept on coming! This place for all it’s wonderful service, atmosphere, views and just plain good cooking is not to be missed! On point! On Fleek! On my list of #1 best restaurants in Philly!
My first time there and it was a very enjoyable experience. Atmosphere, service and the food was extremely good. Seated quickly and served promptly. Our server was particularly friendly and attentive. The view is spectacular. I would recommend to others and I will return.
Came here for restaurant week and asked if we could get a window seat--it was a delicious meal with a great view. I'm not entirely certain I would have paid full price for the meal, but the view makes it worth it, I think. It's best at night. The city lights are lovely.
The food was good with the exception of the risotto being a bit too salty. Veal was cooked and seasoned well. The lemon parfait was creamy but the cherry tomato didn’t fit well in the dessert. The service was quick in the beginning, however it became sluggish and slow. We waited a while for desserts to come out when the restaurant wasn’t as busy, server forgot to put in our sides, and the attention to detail was lacking. Something like filling a glass of water shouldn’t have to be brought to their attention. I assumed the server told the manager about forgetting the side orders, because he came over to check on us and offered to get us anything such as coffee or tea. That was very nice of him however we didn’t care for any beverages, but appreciated the gesture. Our server was not the most pleasant individual, she didn’t seem like she wanted another table and our reservation at 8:30pm wasn’t that late to warrant such attitude. I didn’t really like how she snatch the bill with my credit card from the table. Overall I would give R2L a 3 star at best.
What a Great Find!
Spectacular Unparalleled Views!
Amazing Professional Service!
My family visited for our daughter’s 23 Birthday and it was Pure Pleasure.
The Servers Wore 3 Piece Suits but there Wasn’t Anything Stuffy!

We rang in the New Year at R2L. It was our first visit and we were blown away by the view, and the food and service (Hannah) were equally impressive. It was a splurge, for sure, but worth it . The only negative was the pretty awful band that was blasted over a PA at a ridiculous volume. Our server got them to turn it down and hopefully R2L will book better talent next year.
My fiance and I made plans for dinner here for New Years Eve. We wanted to have a romantic dinner before we partied the night away. The ambiance was great, it was perfectly lit up. Unfortunately, we did not have a window seat- the view was spectacular. Still, we enjoyed ourselves. The servers were all very attentive and were professional. To start, I had the gnocchi and my fiance had the shrimp. We both loved our dishes. For the main, I had the vegan cauliflower, which wasn't anything spectacular but decent enough and my fiance loved his braised short rib + filet duo. We also had the flatbread to share which was okay. Desserts were great- the warm vanilla cake was my favorite. My fiance had the alaskan which was also very good. Drinks are like 12/13 bucks minimum, fyi. The place is a bit pricey, but the views are great. We had a great time!
We went on New Years and the experience fell short of expectations. We booked through Open Table and it was unclear you have to pay for the New Years menu in advance. The restaurant called to let us know, and we missed the call, so they cancelled the reservation. No voicemail or anything! Luckily they were eventually able to seat us after a lot of conversation. The servings were pretty small. For example, the potatoes that came with the steak for two were actually 1 thin crispy fried potato disk (about 2 inches in diameter) for each of us over the mushrooms. The quality of the food wasn't bad, but could find just as good food for lower price with better service elsewhere. If we went when they were serving the regular menu we might have been more satisfied.
Love this restaurant. So happy I found it through a friend! I will keep coming back! Impeccable service! Restaurant host was amazing on 12/28.8pm. Bartender was wonderful too and waiter! Thankyou to the staff that night! Even check in was nice. Lovely place, people and night!
We wanted to dine at a place that had views of Philadelphia. We thought this would mean a touristy experience. Instead, we were treated to spectacular views, excellent service and an innovative menu. Not everything hit the mark, but the buratta and the unusual crispy nachos were delicious.
