I have eaten here a few times now and the good is generally OK and the vibe is good. They are friendly and they seem to try to get you seated quickly even if it is busy. But it also seems that they are understaffed across the board - in spite of what appears to be the earnest efforts of servers, the service is very slow and we went very long periods of time with no attention from our servers. Especially right before a big show. We even tried to only order soups and salads last time to ensure our meals didn't get bogged down in the kitchen - still took 40 minutes to come out. And in the meantime the server never managed to make it back to our table to offer a second drink. Final criticism - their draft beer tastes like those lines need cleaning. I recommend you order bottled beers.
A great venue!
Perfect for a fabulous lovely evening out with your significant other or group of friends
Took my daughter to see Dylan Leblanc and Brian Dunne at World Cafe Live. We were very pleasantly surprised by the intimacy of the venue, the quality of the food and service, and the chance to see two great singer-songwriters up close and personal. What a great place to hear great music (and I do mean "hear") and get to hear the wonderful stories the artists share. Go.
Great live music and good food with pretty good selection. One recommendation would be to change the "two top" tables; they are too rectangular and quite long. It's hard to talk or be even a little close to your date when they're seat is almost 4 ft. from you. And, because of the tight paths between tables it's virtually impossible to move your seat to side or closer as then you're in the way of the wait staff.
The food isn't that terrific hear but listening to the band while eating was fun. It seemed that the servers were spread to thin. Try a salad, they looked pretty good. I had a grill chicken on Naan, it was boring and the eggplant fries weren't that good. My husband the roast pork sandwich and the pork was very good but he ordered eggplant fries and he got regular fries instead which were very good.
Dinner was delicious and staff was friendly. But a little too laid back. More dining staff or service training is needed. All over a great dinner and the best show for the price
Dined upstairs before a concert downstairs. Adequate food and service. Open mic Jaz during dinner.
Overall, the venue was great! However, the talent night that was going on disrupted our conversations. The music was entirely too loud.
Our server did a awesome job for a large party.
The salad with the burger is good if you're looking to eat a burger with less guilt. The burgers were actually good.
I reserved tables for my wife's birthday. The wait staff was excellent and the food was great. We enjoyed Philly Rising and had a good time. The upstairs room was large enough to contain our twenty plus people and small enough to offer a casual atmosphere.
