The food was very good, but unfortunately the poor service may discourage us from returning. The waitress approached our table, explained the buffet & seat service format, and poured water without offering us any beverages. She returned later to take our main course order, and tried to leave before we could finish. We ordered decaff coffee. It took her nearly 15 minutes to deliver. Her inattentive attitude spoiled an otherwise good experience.

Everything about our experience was exceptional; From the moment we walked in, to the moment we left. The food left us with such smiles on our faces, and our waiter was absolutely wonderful. I couldn't imagine being happier with our experience. Thank you for helping to make our night so unforgettable.

Went to XIX for a post Valentines Day celebration dinner, considering Valentines Day was on a Wednesday this year. So we went on Friday night. Situated on the 19th floor of the Bellevue Hotel in Philadelphia, the restaurant offered lovely views from it"s massive windows. The ornately adorned mouldings and trimwork bring you back to an era of elegant dining! Our waiter Rasheed was very attentive and on top of every detail. Food was excellent, no more to say! a must try when in Philly.

My wife and I went here 2/14/18 and it was not a great experience. The host & waiter were rude. We were rushed didn’t look at the menu for 2 minutes before the waiter was rushing us to order. Also we needed the menu to be explained to us because this was not the menu that was online. The waiter was short with his answers for the questions I asked about the menu. Nice looking place but horrible staff.

When we arrived we were sat down and soon realized every table around us had gotten bread and we did not. The portions were absolutely tiny to be paying $85 per person. Before we went we looked at the menu online and they had changed it by the time we got there so we were disappointed.
We went there for Valentine's Day a few years ago and decided to go back because we loved it so much but this time we were very disappointed and will most likely not be returning.

So i had been wanting to go to XIX for awhile now, and since my girlfriend is working on Valentine’s i decided to take her there for our V-day celebration. The food was delicious, we has the seafood tasting for 2, and it was very fresh and delightful! The red wine braised short ribs were succulent, and the new york strip was great as well. Dominic, our server that night, went above and beyond when i requested if they could bring a “dessert” plate that said “ Happy Valentines ”, not only he managed to get this done without the pastry staff but he also suggested 2 glasses of champagne. Thanks Dominic!!!

The stuffed trout was excellent and the beef short rib was "fall of the bone tender". The seat of my chair was over used and needed some stuffing but the hostess did change my chair after I mentioned how uncomfortable it was for me to sit at the table. My husbands favorite drink is Belvedere Vodka which they didn't have.....it was early in the evening. Overall we did enjoy our dinning experience.

Restaurant has a dining room and an "outer" room, which I suppose is used as needed. We were seated in that area. It was all that staff advised was available. A significant disappointment. The staff was very good. The food was delayed in kitchen and complimentary apps were served. Again staff was very good. Entrees were ok. Just ok. The duck was overcooked. So dinner for 4 with tip approx $400 plus approx $30 for parking. Not on the recommended list. Many other choices available in the area - more attractive space, food, prices, etc...
I see that a "private note" to restaurant is offered below. Please just send this in entirety.

My husband and I enjoyed an early dinner before going to the Orchestra at the Kimmel. The service was impeccable, the staff was extremely welcoming, and the food outstanding. The cream of chestnut soup, raw oysters, stuffed trout, along with the recommendation of the sautéed monkfish with lentils were all superb. We enjoyed every moment after a long day at work and look forward to returning again soon.

We had an amazing dinner during restaurant week. The service was fantastic. And the food was amazing. We were 15 minutes late and called to let them know and they made sure we knew it wasn't at all a problem. The only thing nicer than the interior decor was the beautiful view of center city.

We had a great time at brunch at XIX for my mom's birthday, it is prix fixe but the app and dessert are buffet style, and main course ordered. The service, food, and atmosphere were wonderful. A plus that it is handicap accessible for grandma too. Our waitress Luba was so nice and accommodating!!

We went during Restaurant Week. The restaurant itself is beautiful, with sweeping views of the Philly skyline. That's the only positive we observed, however.

There wasn't anyone to greet is as we entered so we stood around for some time waiting to get someone's attention. Once seated, the service was extremely slow. Our drinks took 20 minutes to come out and service between courses was extremely slow.

On a night with a fixed menu of three items, I would expect service to be much faster.

Maybe its a restaurant week thing but I wouldn't go back to this place for anything except cocktails.

SItuated atop the Belleview Hotel, this is one of the prettiest rooms and loveliest views in the city! The lunch/bruch is fabulous with the appetizers and salads buffet, then a lovely entree, then the gorgeous dessert buffet. Like a mini Bar-Mitzvah! Elegant and fun at the same time.

Beautiful dining area, very elegant. Food was delicious. Service was poor. Had to track or call our server over pretty much every time we needed something. Asked for a coffee and was not even given cream or sugar. My teenage daughter has food allergies and when asking about certain foods, some she knew others were her opinion. At one point she walked over to salad bar, moved some lettuce around, and said “I don’t think it has nuts in it”. The fact that an allergy can be taken so lightly was surprising. We also asked if the chef could specially make one of the entrees without a certain ingredient and she said no without even asking the chef. She was very sweet and had a nice personality just seemed very inexperienced. Overall a great restaurant and would certainly go back in hopes of getting better service.

Came in around 10am for brunch.
Waitress was not too swift.
Asked for hot tea & lemon I got cream
No lemon.
Ordered crab benedict w/potatoes
1 egg warm, potatoes cold & other egg cool
Waitress never came back..no water..not a word how the meal is
She never came back til end of meal.
By then I had another waitress, get the manager.
A waiter, took back the potatoes & 1 egg benedict.
Brought me hot potatoes..waited for the egg.
By the time it came potatoes cold..

Tea needed lemon, got other tea, original tea cool.

My friend ordered waffles, butter would not melt...they were cool & she was disgusted.

When the manger came over...she had the same brain power as the waitress...told me "no one complained" I really didn't care.

Also, told her I do INFOR DESK @ KIMMEL CENTER where I was going after this horrible meal..up til today I sent people over from out of the city when they wanted a nice place, close by , of course I will not do that anymore.

Manager, if she was one..said I'll only be charged 50% for the meal.
The meal was left over. I should have been charged 0

I tipped the waitress, 20% why I don't know. end of the meal.
My friend felt terrible she wanted us to have a nice meal..she is leaving the city til spring

I was @ 19 for lunch about a year ago & it was an excellent elegant meal.
This I could do better @ a diner.

Not sure which was worse, service or food..about equal I suppose.

I can honestly say the past 12 months this is the absolute worse meal I had & I eat out often
Even Mickey D's food hot....here nothing was hot when it came out..the 2nd time around got hot potatoes..but 1 egg..I originally had 2.......by the time it came out..potatoes no longer hot.
Nor was the tea by the time a lemon arrived.
Our waitress was too busy standing around looking at people..& forgot the lemon..til I waved & she then found her way back to our table.
By then I needed hot tea.

My friend had to ask for HOT coffee
Nothing came automatically except the check.

I went on New Year’s Eve and the service was terrible. Waiter took forever to greet the table and do the water/bread/drinks basics. It was a prix fixe menu with one of the courses being steak. My friend got up to go to the ladies room while we were waiting and on her way back, the waiter (who hadn’t yet come to our table) asked her how she would like her steak done. Who does this?
Also, this same waiter continually reached across the table to deliver food/clear plates. Why reach across me as I’m having a conversation as opposed to walking around to the other side of the table? Finally, we’d said in our reservation that one of us was hard of hearing. After being asked to pls come round closer to her so she could hear him, he continued to address us from the other side of the table. Inconsiderate.
The food was good. The wine pairings were not good. I will not be back.

As we walked in the restaurant we could smell the fresh shrimp. As we know one should not be able to smell fresh fish or shellfish. The menu was limited. The shrimp did not taste fresh. The entre was not eatable. We sent it back to the kitchen. This was a very disappointing experience. We had brunch at XIX on Easter and it was fabulous. Naturally we were expecting the same this time. I would definitely not recommend any friends and I will tell them when they ask me how overpriced this bad culinary experience was.
