Royal Boucherie is a lively neighborhood bistro, serving a French-inspired menu with snacks like Champagne-Braised Escargot and heartier plates like Steak frites and our award winning burger. Like the classic oyster bars of Old City, Royal Boucherie features raw bar favorites and an extensive housemade charcuterie program.
The beverage program offers a selection of classic cocktails & signature libations, an international wine list with unique small production bottles and a broad mix of American and European craft beers and ciders.
The bi-level space delights the eye with restored finishes such as original pine floors from the 1830's, tin ceilings, antique light fixtures and exposed brick walls. Royal Boucherie boasts a jovial and sophisticated atmosphere, outfitted throughout with dark woods and stone accents.

Delicious French food with lots of unusual twists. The spritzer cocktail menu is a must. Can’t wait to go again!

We used to be come once or twice a year since opening and haven't been back since re-opening. It was to our biggest surprise to see the drop in the food quality. Service was great, but once focused on what is on the plate: too salty, no cares in plating, and quality of ingredients dropped. Truly hope a change will happen because this place was great and still has potential.

Made reservations to sit on the outside patio but my reservation was canceled by Royal Boucherie a few days beforehand for a group event. After rescheduling for the patio 2 weeks later I was told our table was not available and was sat inside instead. The food and service was great but overall did not have a good experience. Very disappointed that the restaurant did not honor either of my reservations and did not make an attempt to compensate for the inconvenience.

We ate here for our anniversary, and they really took care of us and made us feel special. The upstairs patio is so lovely, and it has a clear covering over it so if you reserve it you don't have to worry about the weather not cooperating.

I’ve been here three times and it’s gotten progressively worse. Can’t believe they took the French onion soup off the menu! Why isn’t that a year-round thing? They pitched this scallop crudo as an entree and it’s literally 3 bites of food. We were shocked when they brought it out. My burger was good but the fries were soggy and terrible. Probably won’t be back anytime soon, at least until they bring back the soup.

We were anxious to try the restaurant with the new chef. You can definitely feel the changes. The service was mediocre, we received our veggies long before anything else and it took over an hour for the burger to show up. The escargot lacked salt while the prawns were over salted. The two best items were the asparagus sauce and the burger.

I try to reserve a table weekly as the service, food and ambiance are consistently excellent. It’s one of my favorite Philly spots for a cocktail and yummy eats.

Reserved rooftop got the street seating. Service was completely inattentive. It took 2 hours for raw oysters and charcuterie plate. We had to asked multiple times for water and drinks.

Expected more. Very disappointed.

Took15 minutes to get my cocktail. Brought our appetizer and as the waiter was walking away another person brought our steaks. I said we need some time to eat our appetizer first. He was surprised. When they returned with the steaks they were cold and dried out.
Tried this restaurant when they first opened a few years ago and it was much better back then. Will not return.

Food and drink were all outstanding. We sat on 2nd floor rooftop. Was very nice but a bit on the warm side. I would sit there again but not as the summer temps move in.

We sat in the garden patio which may be hot during the summer but is very peaceful and decorated with herbs and flowers. The menu has a good selection of small plates and dinners. We of course ordered drinks which were both delicious!! Oysters and a scallop was ordered for starters. The scallop mmmmmmmm. In lieu of dinner, we ordered the charcuterie and cheese board. A small board had a great selection of 5 cheeses and 5 meats were all tasty and surprisingly filling. I can’t wait to go back as everything I had was delicious and I would love to try more from the menu.
