R2L offers a sophisticated menu and a sleek dining space that has an amazing view of the Philadelphia skyline. Situated in the 37th floor of Two Liberty Place, the wall-to-wall windows allow guests to dine in a totally urban setting. The open kitchen and the hand-crafted cocktail menu complete the R2L experience.





Start your meal with lobster bisque or tuna sashimi, followed by a main course of old country braised pork or vegan roasted cauliflower. 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.

The food was good for the most part but that is to be expected when you’re paying an arm and a leg. The dress code stated collar shirts only and no sneakers but that wasn’t the case when we arrived. Several patrons did not follow the dress code. My group of 7 waited 20mins pass our reservation time for a table. We did not get a window view. The staff was pretentious and anytime we had a question they looked annoyed and were not welcoming. When I asked wheather gratituity was added to the bill the staff said no. Since we were a larger group we expected tip to be added but it was not stated on the bill. However 15% gratuity was added to the bill but not stated on the bill so my group double tipped. This place is not worth the money. It’s the kind of restaurant you go once but never want to come back again.

Our second time to R2L and it keeps getting better. The service and staff are truly amazing and go above and beyond. My husband and I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant, which is more than a restaurant, to anyone looking for a great time, romantic time, or just a get together with friends. Great food, great staff and an amazing view of the city. Love!!

Wonderful experience for my boyfriend's birthday! Went Saturday night and our server (Javier- excuse the spelling) was fantastic. The food was delicious and the cocktails were great; we ordered the half chicken and salmon --both practically melted in your mouth. Will definitely come back here again very soon. We had a great time!

Always great! Jameer is amazzzzing!!! Our waitress beautiful Asian young lady ( can’t remember her name ) was also very nice. One drawback is that I wish open table made the window package an option. We didn’t realize that was something you had to pre pay for. 2.5 pound lobster tail was so mushy I guess over done , nit sure what causes that. But everything else was delicious.

The food and service was outstanding, but unfortunately there was a very strong odor that was coming from the bathroom and kitchen area. It smelt as if the bathroom was located in the dining area. It took away from the experience of the atmosphere and ruined my wife’s dinner. We will not be coming back

The food was delicious. Servers wearing suits made it difficult to distinguish them from management. The bussers interrupted us way too many times. We were there for a romantic meal and were asked if we wanted our plates cleared multiple time while there was still food on them.

This was my first visit to R2L since I started working in the building . From the moment you walked in the ambiance was impeccable . We were blown away by the selection of wines and the variety of the menu . The service was above par , and they went above and beyond to give us a 5 Star experience. Took about 15 min for an appetizer and 40 min of waiting for the main course . Food tasted amazing and was well worth the price . I completely recommend this establishment and would easily go back in a heartbeat. Jamir if your reading this thank you for the amazing service last night .

We took our three kids there for a 5pm Easter dinner. They loved it! Food, drinks, and service were great, and while R2L isn't marketed as a "family" restaurant per se, the staff was very accommodating to our kids. So much so that upon seeing how enthused the kids were by the magnificent views, the manager was kind enough to offer them an exclusive peek of the restaurant's little-known north facing views! Really made their day!

While the views are nice, this place definitely needs a refresh. The furniture and decor are worn and feel like they're from the 1990s and was also very dark, the food is nothing special and you're certainly paying for those views. The service itself was good, with friendly and accommodating staff, but would not recommend. Go for a drink maybe, go elsewhere for food.

R2L is definitely a unique restaurant with an amazing view. The food, though quite pricey, is extremely good and the staff is amazing, to say the least. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a romantic or special evening overlooking Philadelphia.

Went here for an anniversary dinner. I tried to reserve a window table, but it was too late when I reserved. To our surprise when we arrived, we had a window seat and an outstanding view of the city. Service was wonderful and the food was worth it. I would absolutely visit this place again....if just for the view....and the Oysters.

Nice layout, but a let down due to the seating. I asked for a window seat or at least a booth. Nope, I was placed right next to the bar in the middle of everyone. This was a date with my girlfriend after not seeing her for 3 months, so we were celebrating our Valentine’s Day. The seating really was a let down and the awkward apartment like entrance to the elevator. Definitely disappointed, and the front desk attendants were lost in their chatting.

Food very good. Service excellent!!!

But too noisy and music selection very poor!! If they would change music to soft jazz(I.e. Billie Holiday, Chet Baker etc. ) and turn the volume down it would improve the ambiance 1000%
