                                  Location, location,location! They own the market. Would hope that they would expand the menu to more interesting options. Miss the lovely dining room in the museum- now a fond memory like so many other joys of Philadelphia! Please come to enjoy the stunning architectural renovations!

                                  Fresh, delicious food in a relaxing setting in the museum. It was a perfect place to rest and replenish before looking at more art. We liked the offer of mocktails since we didn't feel like alcohol at lunchtime.

                                  Went with my mom for Mother’s Day ( a day early) and she really liked it a lot; as did I. I would Give it five stars on the bread alone I had two baskets and I wanted the recipe. I also had the jail island salmon and it was great. Service was great as well. Would definitely go back!

                                  This is a small but interesting place, and the Gehry details are evident in the curved edges of the marble top tables, service items like coffee/tea cups and cream pitchers, and the interesting curved beam grid that’s suspended over the room.

                                  Every thing was lovely. We asked the server for advice to order. With good suggestions we ordered 2 small plates and a salad . They split the small dishes. As we were eating the small plates, we realized that we wouldn’t be able to eat anymore. He cancelled the salad. Food was delicious, new combination of tastes. Wonderful celebration of end of treatment.

                                  limited menu but the food was very good. They should turn down the music a little.

                                  A great experience at the Stir restaurant. I visited the museum around lunch time to enjoy the meal first. Tried 3 different dishes within the past week.The food was meticulous every time . Had the best seared Salmon yesterday. Loved the relaxing ambiance and open kitchen but I was hesitant to approach the chef as he seemed very busy. Highly recommend. Compliments to the Chef!

Wait staff were helpful and service was prompt. Flat white coffee excellent. Overall an excellent experience and I will return for lunch on my next visit to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

                                  THE FOOD WAS GREAT. WE SAT IN THE BACK NEAR THE KITCHEN AND IT WAS FUN TO WATCH THE FOOD BEING MADE.

                                  Food was fresh and delicious. Service was friendly and quick, very nice, especially for inside a museum…better than I expected!

                                  Food and service were excellent and the place looks great. The waitress was outstanding. My wife and I had a great time.

                                  Great food and good service. Not especially pricey for a museum restaurant
