5 Stars across the Board, folks !!
I wanted to love this place but the food was disappointing. The appetizers were great, however, the main courses were not. The pasta in particular was terrible, I have frankly never eaten such bad pasta. It wasn't very well put together, all I could taste was the salty water in which the pasta was cooked and some low quality olive oil. It felt as if chef was not in the kitchen. It was a shame because the appetizers made us feel as if we were in for a treat.
Great food and drinks! And our server was excellent as well! Will be back again in the near future.
Steak tartare and cassoulet were the highlights of an enjoyable meal. We sat in an extremely comfortable booth, it was an extremely busy Saturday night but the staff was efficient and composed.
Burger was inedible
Steak was miscooked as well , thankful manager comped entire meal. Waiter was useless.
First time at RB, as I moved to Old City in December and it was not yet open due to the pandemic. As such, I didn’t know what to expect, but wanted to give it a shot. RB far exceeded my expectations. The food was delicious, waitstaff pleasant and engaging, and the ambiance was perfect. I’m looking forward to heading back again soon. This will definitely be added to my list of favorite neighborhood gems.
Enjoying our Saturday night dinner in bustling Old City!
Seems to still be working out the kinks after reopening. Service was a bit slow an inattentive. Cheese plate was a highlight but charcuterie was lacking. Fries tasted like they had been made hours before. Mussels lacking in flavor and served without bread (what's the point of sauce!?). Overall experience was just OK.
Amazing food and amazing service. Can’t wait to sit outside next time
Excited to have this gem back open. The new chef has some great additions but hoping to see closer representation of our old favorite the escargot. Still the best in the city by far, don’t get me wrong. Also missing the chicken liver mousse and pate. The staff was excellent as usual and the restaurant was perfectly decorated. Welcome back and we will see the staff again soon.
We adore this place. Food, drink, and service is always exceptional. Get the oysters and thank me later.
Amazing setting, great service and really good food!
Phenomenal, as always. so happy they are open again! the roof patio was magical on a rainy Friday night. food from the new menu was exceptional. top tier cocktails, but that goes without saying. best spot in old city!
They changed the sacred burger. The beef is better in the new burger, but bring back the truffle Mayo & pickle PLEASE!
Very nice place with friendly staff and a nice ambiance. Perfect for a date night or night out. Drinks and food were good with quick service.
Great time. Food was incredible especially the oysters. Service was sub par which was surprising since the place was empty. Our waitress was not attentive and it was reflected in her tip. Will go back and hope we get a better waiter/waitress.
The menu is so small and what we got wasn’t even good. It was brunch and it was half dinner food. Lastly our waitress was really rude. Do better !
Food is always amazing ! They also have the best cocktails ! Friendly servers and love the cozy atmosphere
Enjoyed. Had a good time.
Everything was solidly OK. The food tasted fine, but nothing really blew us away. Escargot was disappointing: too herby and not garlicky enough. Steak frites were good but not great. Chicken was, again, fine but nothing special. We ate outside, so it was a bit noisier and chillier than indoors, but that was our choice. Service was spot on. I don’t mean to sound disgruntled—we enjoyed our meals, I was just hoping for some WOW and didn’t quite experience it.
As always, everything was perfect at Royal Boucherie! Our table on the upstairs patio was lovely, our server was both kind and knowledgeable. And the food and drink was stellar, from the thoughtful cheese plate to the precisely cooked steak to the clever cocktails.
We had dinner outside out-front on the street. The street was closed off and there were patio heaters and twinkling lights and an Irish band was playing by another restaurant near by. We felt like we were in Europe! The ambiance was terrific and we felt very (covid) safe. Bistro tables were socially distanced and the hostess was very accommodating and followed all covid protocols. Our dinner and drinks were delicious! We had a chefs special appetizer that was out of this world. Service was perfect! When I went inside to use the bathroom I glimpsed at the upstairs patio and it was beautiful too! We will be back!
The very best brunch in town. Went for the Eggs Benedict, but it wasn't on menu. Had something called the Breakfast Muffin that we supurb and filling.
Our experience was fine. Everything we had was good but not memorable. We were not disappointed but will not make RB one of our go to locations. Expectations go up when a restaurant declares itself french. I would classify as casual american with a french flair.
Wasn’t too happy about my experience here. I guess the food was French inspired? Steak frites was ok, fries were overloaded with salt, my wife got some meat sandwich that she took two bites of and then couldn’t eat anymore. Her fries were over salted as well. Way overpriced for my experience. My wife were looking for a French experience, we’ve been to Paris and Royal Boucherie was nothing like it.
Awesome food, great service
Get The Board, fam.
Thank me later.
Great food, great service, the best of times!
As always, best burger in town. Lovely outdoor seating and primo service!
Great experience and food. The a la Philly is easily one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. Will definitely be back.
Fun night, great food, amazing drinks, and the best company!
Everything was top notch, we’ll be back again.
Thank you so much!
Loved roof top. Was somewhat disappointed the the brunch menu was more limited than what I saw posted on line.
Menu could use some new choices.
Had a fabulous time. We were seated on the upper patio and felt very safe with respect to COIVD during the entire time we were there. The food was excellent as always. Dining at the Royal Boucherie is becoming a family tradition for our visits to Philadelphia.
Royal Boucherie is one of my favorite spots in Old City. We had a fabulous meal and wonderful outdoor dinner. A special thanks to the RB staff for accommodating my request for rooftop seating. It was very much appreciated. And the rooftop is gorgeous. The food, as always, was spectacular. We started with the raw oysters - always exceptional - and I had the spaghetti with crab and my dining partner had scallops. Everything was delicious and the cocktails and wine we enjoyed with the meal were just perfect.
Sat outside. Excellent service. Ate chicken liver pate, a green salad, crispy chicken wing confit and a hamburger. Great ambiance and food. Will be back. We could never get reservations before the pandemic so we’re thrilled to have had a table at this chic authentic French restaurant.
Such great food and cocktails ! The outdoor space was so beautiful I felt like I was eating in a gorgeous garden
Food was disappointing compared to previous experiences at Royal.
Waiter brought drinks, starters, and entrees all at the same time. Additionally, the crab spaghetti and trout was lackluster. Expected a much better experience considering the positive reviews and price point.
The food was delicious, especially the charcuterie and cheese tray. It is enough food for aa meal. We also split the hamburger since so many people raved in prior reviews. It was delicious but too much food after the tray. The only downfall of the experience was that the bootle of wine we ordered was not opened in front of us, nor poured, which is not proper wine service.
