What a special dining experience. I took a friend for lunch to celebrate her birthday. The hostess was warm and welcoming and the waitress equally friendly, professional and knowledgable about the menu. My friend is vegetarian and there were many options for her to chose from. We both ordered the vegetable soup and a salad. Both were fresh and delicious, the salad had the perfect amount of dressing, very light letting the flavors and textures of the salad shine. We also ordered the truffled fries which were perfect. I can't wait to go back and try some of the other dishes.

Stir is a lovely restaurant with an inventive menu. The roasted peaches starter was delicious. I had the chopped salad with a crab cake and that was also flavorful. The crab cake was well made with nice chunks of crabmeat. I would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch for any occasion.

It was a delicious lunch with farm fresh vegetables served in a variety of ways. The chef surprised us with the roasted carrot specialty to honor our 54th wedding anniversary! Service was excellent with many “congratulations” expressed.

Me and my guests loved the experience, the food and the service. My crab cake was just delicious and everyone else raved about their food. Service was memorable with the waiter being courteous and helpful. Everything you want for lunch - ambiance, good food and great service. Bravo.

The food was absolutely stunning! The attention to detail and little things make the whole experience that much better. Be sure to try the Salmon, especially for the unassuming Sunchokes that come with it!

Very disappointed. Noisy open kitchen with staff talking loudly - not a very pleasant ambiance. The food was okay, but prices are high and were tolerable in the old restaurant with its elegant, refined ambiance that made dining there seem special. Not anymore. I will definitely not return.

We had such a super cool waiter. There were two of us snd we asked if they could split the soup for us in the kitchen and he said Absolutely. We also split a salad which was lovely and fresh. Taking a star off for no salt and pepper on the table (it is a personal choice and we should be allowed to have it, also no cracked pepper was offered).

It is a lovely, small space, minimal decor with clean lines.

Loved our happy waiter.

Stir is a refreshing and delicious break from visiting exhibits at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The menu is based on locally sourced ingredients. This adds to the quality and delicious taste of the dishes. I had the Quiche which rates as the best I have ever had.

Our first time to Stir when visiting the Philadelphia Museum. We had a wonderful farm to table lunch. The quiche and salad were excellent as well as the grilled chicken sandwich. Highly recommend you visit on your next trip to the museum. Well worth it.

Happy to see the attractive, updated restaurant, but like so many of the new, modern restaurants, there is no way to absorb the noise because of the room design, and no where to get a quiet table. Supposedly the tiles on the upper walls are noise absorbing, but I certainly did not notice that.

This is one of our favorite museum-based restaurants.The service and the atmosphere are excellent, and the menu is varied and interesting. I ordered vegan soup and potato gnocchi, and my wife found her favorite--salmon. Overall, this was a very satisfying experience.

Great - delicious - lovely service.
Only issue - hard to reach while Museum still under construction. Kind of a maze and you have to get admission to Museum until construction is complete. Should be fixed soon...

Only non-cafeteria option at Phil Museum of Art, so you are stuck but we were not impressed at all. Soup and even salad were over salted. Adequate but not great value for price. Next time we might just take our chances at cafeteria. Its a pity because the former restaurant option at the Museum was really wonderful.

We chose to eat at Stir because it was a convenient option for our trip to the Art Museum, but that convenience was only the beginning of a great experience! Everything we ordered, from cocktails to lunch entrees, was delicious, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Knowing that the restaurant uses ingredients from local farms was nice as well. We will definitely be back next time we're at the museum, and we'll recommend Stir to visiting friends and family as well!

We had a reservation at Stir for a busy Sunday at 1:00. Everything was fantastic. The table was comfortable, the staff friendly and professional and the food excellent. The chef is a master of biscuit making and the eggs benedict were the best ever served on the biscuit. We had a wonderful time and will return when we next visit the museum.
