Out of business!
Excellent food and service! The brussel sprouts and gnocci were particularly noteworthy.
The place was nice and will return but will just have to be seated away from crowd. Not a fan of loud talking when eating.
Great atmosphere. Great food. Great service. Close to theater, so it was a great place for pre theater lunch.
Sedition was very accommodating for a large group and has such a great environment!
Great place for pre-theatre dinner and drinks. We even got $$ off for having show tickets. Great experience
A excellent after theatre dining location, very good sandwiches and salads, we did not sample entries but will next visit. 20% discount for Walnut ticket holders a huge plus! Quiet, we were able to discuss play with ease.
First time here and we will go back. The service was wonderful... food was ok. Not GREAT but not bad.
Live music was a plus.
Wonderful food and service. Sa was a fantastic server - very energetic, friendly, and helpful. Looking forward to going back
Though the food was great, the service was so slow. We even asked them to hurry because we were under time constraints and they didnt make an effort to hurry.
We had dined at Six Feet Under, the previous occupant of this space, and were hoping that the current tenant would meet or exceed our previous experiences. The grilled octopus appetizer was very good. Our grilled cheese sandwiches were oddly lacking in taste, and the French fries which accompanied one plate weren't crisp. The side salad which accompanied the other plate was quite good, and we liked the coffee. We went during Restaurant Week, and the menu was limited. We're hoping that when the regular menu is back in place, we'll have more options. This wasn't a bad meal--some parts were excellent--but it could have been better.
Overall it was decent and I’m interested to return and try the non-restaurant week menu, but a few things -
1. Completely empty on a Wednesday night at 7pm. I mean absolutely empty.
2. Loooove the brussel sprout appetizer
3. Flank steak was a bit chewy, French Dip came w onion soup as the jus so it was a bit hard to “dip” through the onions. Also didn’t seem to be traditional shaved roast beef but rather some sort of shredded meat. Was still tasty.
4. Creme brûlées were not set nor cold - makes me think they were not made correctly
Went on a double date for restaurant week. Cute intimate place. Live saxophonist- very nice touch!
Service was a bit slow, possibly under staffed that night. Didnt se waiter for 15 minutes after seating. Restaurant week menu gave good options. Portioning a bit small but food was good. Dessert course of creme brulee had great flavors but the custard didnt set and was liquid. Their "Heresy" is definitely a drink worth trying. Would certainly go back for drinks and while I would eat again, I probably wouldn't seek it out.
A great neighborhood place. Good food, good prices, great service. My wife and I have become regulars.
Lovely brunch with live music. Had a great time and will be returning.
We had dinner at Sedition and it was fantastic! Our server was great, friendly and helpful. The four of us all enjoyed our dinners, which included short ribs, gnocchi, tuna and French onion soup - all were excellent. A hidden gem!
The food was good. I had gnocci and shortrib. The ambiance was the best part.
Very nice food and service. Great local place.
Came for Sunday brunch with a party of seven. We were the only ones there for much of the time. The food was excellent and we had a wonderful experience. The only negative was that they automatically charged a 20% gratuity for the large party - I understand the automatic gratuity, but most places charge 18%. I would have given more than 18% anyway, but the principle of the thing turned me off. Nonetheless, I will be back and I highly recommend it.
This hidden gem sits in a basement location on Walnut between 7th and 8th, tucked away amongst shovel and pipe sconces for lighting, two awesome bars, little nooks to meet and talk to friends, and two separate private dining rooms besides the main one. It is a huge place but feels intimate nonetheless. We came for brunch on Sunday and it was DEEE lish. I had a special omelette of the day that was fluffy and light, and my husband had the braised pork hash, both were sumptuous and filling. Our waitress, Sa was always attentive and responsive. I like this place; it is has a nice feel and is really cozy. With the cold winter in full speed ahead, this cozy underground place is a fun place to go to get out of the cold. Hoping to go back with a big group and sit in the U-shaped nook, which is perfect to socialize in with our own private tv's to watch the game! Cheers to the staff, keep up the good work!
The cheese plate special, the spinach salad and pork chop entree were very good. Very disappointed in the chicken parm special. Little mozzarella on the chicken and the chicken was burnt.
Great service. Cheese tray was nice, entrees less than spectacular. Shepherd pie mostly mashed potatoes. Apple pie in a skillet as barely warm.
The food was mediocre, I ordered a grilled cheese w/ out bacon which came out with bacon. I also ordered the potato soup and received the French Onion and had to wait for my soup. We ordered the the cheese board, which was very slim. My date had the gnocchi, he said it was very cheesy for his taste. We each had 2 drinks and the bill came to $94! We agreed that it was not worth the price and will not return.
The food was great and the staff especially the manager Brian was very accommodating. Thank you all for the great evening.
Great food. Excellent management. Terrific server.
This was our third time at Sedition (The first time the restaurant was called "Six Feet Under") We came from the American Revolution Museum the first time, and before the Walnut Street Theater the last two times. They accomodated large parties brilliantly (party of 16 in a back room and a party of 7 this last time in a private room. The wait staff is exceptional, knowledgeable and attentive. Cocktails are unusual and great. The vegetarian offerings (which many of our party needed) are fantastic. We ended up this last time splitting appetizers and salads among the 7 of us, many of us had the squash soup special - exceptional. We even managed to split two desserts among the 7 of us. (Wait staff graciously brought over clean plates and spoons/forks). We highly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent food and service. Will definitely go back again!
Had dinner with 9 others. Everyone enjoyed the small plates and mains. We tried much of the menu, all very good! Definitely recommend.
Service was amazing and super accommodating! All the of the staff congratulated us individually on our special occasion, the manager/owner (I couldn’t tell) welcomed us to the restaurant and then came to us twice throughout the meal to check in and inform us that they’d like to give us a dessert on the house. Waiter was also super attentive and conversational. So kind and welcoming of them!
Food was, without a doubt, outstanding! We ordered the baby back ribs and the burger, then the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. I was blown away and so full by the end of the meal.
100% would recommend. Please try out this Old City gem!
It's a noisy bar. Limited menu. Hamburger was good.
My first time there I was greeted and they made me feel at home, went over drinks and menu and when my date arrived Brittany our server was awesome! They also recommended a new drink on the menu the Dominator which I love. The appetizer and food was delicious.
Overall, the food was very well prepared and tasty. Interesting dishes.
The biggest knock i have is the draft beer selection was not too inspiring and the wines by the glass had no description. Your choices were Cabernet, Chablis, etc. Didn’t mention what the producer was or even the region.
Happy that we had an excellent lunch at Sedition. Know the restaurant has struggled to get the right menu, so happy that all is now good! We need a go to place in the Washington Square neighborhood!
Came with about 5 colleagues for a special retirement and birthday lunch. Great ambience and our food was delicious. Lunch menu is limited but all of it was amazing. Brussels sprouts salad was really good.
A decent location and well maintained but the sports bar atmosphere is lost. Dishes contained Ingredients that were not on the menu nor asked for (gnocchi had sausage in it and my wife had to pick it out). The desserts were decent but extremely overpriced for size and quality.
This is the most recent of several restaurants in this location. It is about a block from the Walnut Street Theater, and offers a discount if you are attending the show. The menu is limited but what we had was excellent. The baby back ribs were meaty, and my wife left no remains of the duck breast. There is a wide selection of beers on tap. We shared a bread pudding for dessert, but it was so large we couldn’t even finish. We will certainly return on our next visit to the Walnut.
Brian was fantastic at the bar. Small plate appetizers were delicious. Ribs were inedible. Cooked beyond recognition the sauced heavily. Drinks were fantastic.
Please service. Food was tasty and reasonably priced.
We were a group of 5 having dinner prior to the Walnut Street Theater (BTW offers a discount for WST goers). The waitress was attentive and helpful. The menu was smallish but eclectic and interesting and enough choices that we had a hard time deciding what we wanted. Vegetarian options were terrific!
Portions were huge (You might want to share some of the appetizers and salads)
The ice cream selections were "insane" and delicious (popcorn, redwine stand out). The Peach dessert was amazing We had a "flight" of 3 ice cream scoops
Would highly recommend it. We will be back
