A beautiful restaurant with an interesting menu, however too too noisy. Waiter would lean over to serve table next to us and his backside was in our food! Dessert menu print is so small that we couldn’t see it so didn’t order any.

The service is extremely slow. Our meal was close to 4 hours. The managers were very nice but our waitress was not very nice at all.

I loved this place when it opened last year, but the service is not as good as other "best" restaurants in Philly and the food is more hit and miss than it was, with some really great things, some ordinary things and some not good things (like dessert or the fries).

An outstanding culinary experience with great dishes and pastries.
My wife and I have been there before and this was another wonderful experience and our son thought the same; it was his first time there

Excellent service and meal. We went for Sunday brunch and the food choices were terrific - we always dine family style - but there’s always someone who hogs the baba ganoush! Love it there!

The food and service were amazing. I would highly recommend to anyone and understand why they are booked so far out for reservations. One of the best meals I have ever had and the wait staff were more than attentive. I can’t wait to go back. Loving ending the night with a drink in the garden.

Don't order the tasting menu. You'll be overloaded with food at one time and won't being able to properly enjoy it. Order a few dishes at a time.

Suraya is my favorite. From the moment you walk in it’s such a beautiful experience. The aesthetic thought put into the space, combined with incredible service (seriously every single time I’ve been there) and the food make this place unbelievable. I loved it, I still love and will always recommend it for anything from cocktails in or outside, lunch or a super hot date you’re looking to impress.

The food was incredible as well as the atmosphere. It took around 2 and a half hours from sit down to finish, but it was worth it for the experience.

Food was excellent, especially recommend the Fried Kibbeh and the Prawns, but everything was at a minimum very good. Service was attentive. Value was reasonable although the bill can add up quickly as the plates, even the entrees, are fairly small.

Over rated and our server was absolutely not into her job. This made the mediocre food worse. The restaurant itself is great feel but I really don’t understand the hype. The other eight in our party felt the same.

It was great but we showed up on time and had to wait about ten minutes to be seated, when there were plenty of open seats for two in the dining room. Our waiter was nice but for the two of us, we have an almost three hour dinner. He wasn't very attendant but the food made up for it.

Customer service was excellent. When our entrees did not arrive within a period of time, as determined by management, they gave us a gift of muffins. We didn't feel that the wait was excessive. This shows that management respects their customers.
