The staff was absolutely wonderful! They were so accommodating even with a few last-minute changes to our reservation. Our server was fun/cheerful and made the experience even better. Plus, the brunch deal is awesome (only $50 for food and bottomless mimosas).

Literally horrible, these 5 stars reviews gotta be fake. The food was gross and the service and people in there seemed so stuck up. The only good part is the interior design was super cute. Red flag when they have like 100 reservations open!

The waitstaff was super nice. I just wish they were wearing masks. I don't think that requiring patrons to be vaccinated is enough to keep us all safe from getting infected with Covid. It made me super uncomfortable to have waitstaff walking around and talking to me unmasked.
The food was underwhelming. I ordered the short ribs and they were anything but tender. The chicken soup was alright, nothing to write home about. Honestly the best part of my meal was the roasted asparagus and the wine.
The music was nice but a bit too loud so my friend and I kept having to talk super loud, not the most relaxing atmosphere. I would not recommend this place for a quiet dinner.
I wish the Hadley had better food, it's a really convenient location for me but honestly the food is not a great value for the money.

This place was great! Great bar and happy hour special. Front staff and bartender were super friendly. drinks were amazing, live DJ made it fun. We had the Faking It and the Negroni! Dinner service wasn't as fluid and attentive, but still solid. We enjoyed the salmon and the tuna entrees. The short ribs were overcooked unfortunately. Super cool ambiance and design.

This is a wonderful space with terrific service -- attentive without being rushed or cloying. The food and drinks are excellent. Upscale vibe, great lighting and music. There were some diners nearby on cellphones (speakerphone) and one with an infant. Not the restaurant's fault, but added to the noise level. I would eat here again.

LOVED having brunch here after the Philadelphia Marathon, this place is a gem. The location is in perfect proximity to the finish line. Food, drinks and service were all outstanding. The decor and vibe are awesome. Every person working there was super friendly. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend!!

We had the option of eating in the bar but they were going to have a Trivia Contest which became excessively loud. Miked MC.
Our server, Marco was excellent and basically served the whole restaurant. He did a remarkable job.
All 4 meals were very tasty and delicious. Especially the sesame crusted Tuna.

I love the look of the Hadley, the color scheme and finishes look great. I went for brunch and the bottomless Bloody Mary/mimosa deal is a great value. The food took a little long but that’s how things are these days. Everything tasted great though. I’ll be back for sure.

Came here to catch up with a friend over bottomless brunch. $50 includes unlimited drinks for your 90 minute stay and one entree. My advice: stick with mimosas since they round with a pitch (vs. waiting for the bar to whip up a bloody).

First time at Hadley after moving to the neighborhood 3 months ago. Great location tucked away on the Parkway at Parktowne Place apartments. It has a large charming outdoor space with a big arbor covering much of the seating area. We had hoped to eat outdoors on this unusually warm night in October, but as we approached the path as we walked down the Parkway, our hopes were blasted away by loud dance music played by the DJ - apparently a weekly Friday night event. It was not even 7:30 and I thought, did we make a mistake...is this a disco or a restaurant?! I know we'd never be able to hear ourselves outside, so we asked for indoor seating, in a cozy comfortable and relatively quiet indoor dining room, with only 2 other tables with guests. The thumping music was still audible but at least was mostly background. In the end, the service and food were vey good. Crispy calamari appetizer (shared) was indeed crispy and tasty with a sweet Thai sauce. I had the mushroom ravioli which was delicious and husband had Chicken parm which he said was a little dry but very good. Menu is not extensive but has something for everyone...burgers, pizzas, salads and mains. Would try again (but not on a Friday)

Our waiter Jason was amazing and the food was great! However; upon arrival we were asked to show proof of being vaccinated, which was fine but there were people in front of us who were not asked to see proof of being vaccinated and were not required to wear a mask. The manager was a little rude.

The food and the service was good but pricey, which was not unexpected. The only issue we had was the volume of the music. We sat outside on the patio and there was a DJ blasting music throughout the dinner hours. There were, at most, 20 diners total outside, and the atmosphere did not warrant loud club music. There was nothing wrong with the DJ's abilities, but the volume really took away from the overall experience, which is unfortunate given the cost. We sat at a two-top table, and even shouting, could not hear each other.

So bad. It took an hour to take our order and then never got our drinks. Bottomless mimosas are not worth it if you only get one mimosa.
