Still just a gem - especially on Wednesday evenings when it is BYO.
The food is always excellent to off-scale. Highly recommend trying the mussels escabeche; pastas are always incredible.
Looking forward to many more.
A very good meal, prepared with fine ingredients. Be sure to stick with the wine: my cocktail was barely drinkable, and my wife's cocktail was truly disgusting.
Everything was excellent, from the food to the service to the ambiance.
Amazing celebration for our 10th anniversary
Love this spot. Food and service never disappoint. Romantic atmosphere too.
I think we found a new neighborhood gem!
The room was too warm. the air conditioning could have been better.
Great food with great service. Outside seating was relaxing and added a nice touch to the experience.
We love everything about Southwark. Ambience, staff, and most importantly fresh, heart made dishes and slammin’ cocktails.
Excellent service. Food is locally sourced and expertly prepared. The cocktails are imaginative and tasty.
Wonderful meal. We got the chicken liver, corn ravioli, and fish of the day. Lovely servers who made this bday experience special.
The food and ambiance at Southwark are both amazing. Food is always fresh and delicious. Menu changes routinely, so there is always something new to try! Love this restaurant. Perfect for date night.
Love the place. Creative great food, great atmosphere.
Great Happy Hour specials. We loved everything we had:
-Fried Green Tomatoes
This place was awesome. Sat at the bar and Wes, the bartender, was super friendly, plus he made AWESOME drinks. Highly recommend doing the "dealers choice" where you just let the bartender make you something. As far as food goes, we only ordered the ravioli and gnocchi, but they were perfect. Gnocchi were the fluffiest I've ever had, and the Ravioli were perfectly seasoned. Will definitely be back.
Sat outside on a quiet night. Lovely. Server excellent and knowledgeable.
Food and drinks were spectacular. The squid ink fettuccini was the best pasta I've ever eaten!
Beef tartare and pork belly were excellent! Our service was friendly but rushed, which seemed odd because the restaurant was DEAD. Our second course was served before we were done with our first. Not sure why such a great place was so sparse on a Thurs night but we enjoyed our meal and I will return!
This place was really romantic and a great deal of fun. The wine list is good and I’d definitely recommend for a romantic dinner or just going out and enjoying some wine with a friend or two.
Southwark was recommendation by a coworker when I complained about the lack luster food and drinks at a different restaurant. Southwark did not disappoint, and coincidentally had named their new drink in honor of my all-time favorite, Patrick Swayze (I had 2). They were also extremely accommodating to our friend who is allergic to every food under the sun. Great experience!
I've lived in Philly.for over 10 years and this was no joke one.of the better dining experiences. The food and drinks were both well executed and just damn good! Will be returning and I suggest you do the same.
Entrees were amazing. Chocolate cake with salted caramel ice cream was the perfect blend of sweet and salty. Highly recommend!
Incredibly great meal top to bottom. Cocktails were inventive and delicious. Can't wait to return!
Well-made cocktails and creative menu. Excellent service by Celia. Our guests raved about the entire meal! This is just an outstanding place.
Always a great time! Food is spectacular, creative and filling, desserts too. The cocktails are phenomenal too.
Love this place, great neighborhood spot with local/seasonal dishes, handmade pastas are spectacular and the cocktails are some of the best in the city. The service is friendly either at the bar or in back dining room and try the patio seating on a nice night, its decorated with growing herbs and vegetables!
Food was fantastic and bar service was great. Outdoor table side service was not very friendly and there were at least 2 small mice outside we noticed after paying the check
Great service and food!
Awesome place. Can’t really say how much we really loved it. My husband already wants to go back. Like he wanted to go back the next day. I’m vegan and my dishes were amazing. My husbands fish was salted and cooked perfectly. The service was fantastic. They were so nice and welcoming. Definitely coming back!!
So nice! Great pasta and veggies!
Food was fabulous and interesting (amazing gnocchi) and the server was extremely knowledgeable.
Great neighborhood gem. The food was delicious and creative. Great staff, too.
Loved the cocktails-inventive and delicious! But seriously, $4.00 for a couple of slices of bread? Pretty pretentious and overpriced.
Very limited and unimaginative menu. Food fresh but tasteless. Seriously overpriced for what they deliver.
The restaurant was beautiful and they have a great outdoor seating area. The beet salad was delicious and I appreciated that there were a few vegetarian options on the menu!
Still my favorite for a Wednesday night. The spring menu is fun. Mussels escabeche terrific (recommend a rioja).
We enjoyed Southwark at the recommendation of local friends who frequent the restaurant in their neighborhood. The service was personal and attentive. The limited menu offered tasty choices. We were all quite satisfied with the Roasted Bone Marrow appetizer and Roasted Beet & Citrus Salad. Lamb Shoulder Navarin, Short Rib Tortelloni, and fish of the day (Tilefish) were all well-executed. The Chocolate Cake and Rhubarb Upside Down Cake were moist and delicious. The fun cocktail menu is an added plus!
Impressed with the quality and originality of the food though a bit overpriced, at least by NYC standards. Specialty bar drinks were great. The beef tortellini soup was excellent. Needed a couple more tortellinis. Serving size of the entrées we had were a bit smaller. But that's good!
Wonderful service and outstanding food. Above average wine and beer selection. Everyone loved their meal. Brussel sprouts were so delicious. A very positive experience!
Always an excellent meal!
