 (Philadelphia)·Dined 5 days ago

I was a little disappointed. The staff could have been more enthusiastic. The menu choices could have offered more dishes. There was no one at the front desk/doorway of the restaurant when we arrived. The raw clams were as tiny as nickels for $2.00 each. When we were leaving, we were waiting at the doorway for our coats and no one was there, plus other staff saw us there standing for a while and none of them offered to help. I had to go look for the coat person. When I made the reservation online I told the it was for a birthday and that I wanted a desert for the birthday person because I saw on the website that they gave a cupcake with a candle. The food was ok, portions a little small for the over priced items. I chose this place because I went to a Christmas party a few years ago and it was very nice. This time there was a downgraded difference, it was dull. I will not be going here again. I frequent various Philadelphia restaurants so I know about good service, good food and ambiance. This was dull!

My family and I enjoyed an excellent Sunday brunch at Nineteen. The food was delicious with an options to try the brunch buffet or order from a separate brunch menu. The buffet had a nice selection of items being constantly checked on and replenished. The brunch menu had a variety of great options. I would definitely recommend trying the apple dumplings. Also, the view of the city is beautiful, and the overall ambiance is comfortable while maintaining a luxorious and sophisticated feel.

They place was really nice great location in downtown Philly. Great place for nice pictures. Valet parking wasn't at the front of the building has to go inside to as about valet parking. Greeter wasn't as post. The waiters were a bit rude and didn't seem to know much about the menu. Also I didn't like that you had to wait to be seated when all your guests arrive.

I made a reservation for my birthday and used their private dining room. The room was very nice and intimate with the option to close the doors and play music from your phone so I was very pleased with that part of my night. However, I was disappointed with the service. Not only was I reminded once about the minimum spend of $500 but three times in 10 minutes as if they thought the people I was with weren’t able to afford it. It was 8 of us so we spent more than double the minimum. The waiter was not very friendly. I don’t know if he was having a bad day or not but I did not feel very special on my special day. My guests were rushed to order off of the whole menu. Around 10:08 we started to order and he claimed that he would need our whole order now instead of just appetizers because the kitchen was about to close. I asked what time the kitchen closes and he said 11. Based off of my experience at other restaurants I’ve dined in we had more than enough time to order food prior to 11, at least a quarter of. So that really bothered me The he wouldn’t put our food order in unless he had the whole app and entree ordered. Food was not hot except the crab macaroni that I ordered. I was also surprised that they were aware of my birthday and I didn’t even get a cute little dessert. I have been to many Steven Starr restaurants whether an anniversary or birthday and they did something for me. The reservation I made had the note of it being my birthday and I was offered nothing. I decided well I would pay for a dessert myself so I asked did they have like a Browne with ice cream and a candle to make it special for me. He said no and recommended something different like an apple cake because they have nothing like a brownie but we do have candles. I just said never mind and was ready to go. Okay food. Mediocre service especially how much we’re paying. Bad customer experience. Will never have a bday dinner again here.

Although the food and ambiance were good, the service was very lacking. We were not greeted upon entering the restaurant having to wait about 10 minutes before someone came to the front desk. Also had to wait awhile for the waitress to come to the table to offer beverages and then again to take our order.

We had not been a to the Bellevue in a long time. In the past I remembered excellent food, good service and a lot of customers with an animated ambience.

Frankly, I was so surprised to find what I did: the carpeting had not even been vacuumed, some of the stainless flatware was dirty, and while the sheer curtains are supposed to have the crushed look, the general impression they leave is unkempt and even dirty.

While the food on the buffet was very good, the presentation was a shock (and presentation is half the battle when it comes to serving food!): on the dessert side, the whipped cream was served in a cast iron casserole and the fresh berries were literally hidden in an oval Le Creuset cooking pot with burn stains on the sides. I really don't understand what the intended effect was, but it was really a turn off and a bizarre surprise. Leave those casseroles and kettles in the kitchen. They have no place on a buffet table!

Something needs to be done in a dining room with such charm and a gorgeous view.

I enjoyed the professionalism and the ambience and the view. The only issue was our main entree, the side of vegetable was over cooked and salty, and my monkfish dish was too salty and the potatoes were not done (it was hard, almost raw.) Wine list is great, appetizers and desert were on point. Waiter(Rasheed?) was phenomenal!

I have dined at XIX Nineteen before it it was excellent, but I have to say this past visit was horrid. To begin with our waiter took forever to take our order then food took a long time to come then my steak was dry and hard to cut! I was so disappointed! I’m sitting there not eating and waiting in our terrible waiter to come so I can order something else but by the time he finally got around to check in on us I didn’t want anything else but the check!!
So disappointing!!

My wife & I celebrated our wedding dinner at XIX 2yrs ago & LOVED IT. We decided to have our 2nd Wedding Anniversary dinner at XIX as well, & we requested the same balcony seating. They did not dissapoint! Everyone was so nice & accommodating! The food & mixed drinks were out of this world delicious, as was the coffee & desert! Kudos to the Chef!! Amazing food creations that were thebest we’ve ever tasted-ever!
We weren’t rushed at all, and all staff were professional, friendly & knowledgeable. We have decided to make XIX an annual tradition fro our Anniversary, a go to place for orher annual celebrations, surprise date nights, etc. XIX is no question our favorite high end Restaurant with fabulous views of this great City!

The worst restaurant I’ve been to in this class. It took about 5 mins to see someone for us to be seated. Took 10 mins to be acknowledged after being seated. I had noted this was a birthday, we watched several parities receive a candle and when it was time for our desert, nothing! I had to ask in front of my other half what happened? I would never go back and encourage others to try another restaurant in this class. There is nothing classy or special about this place. The staff were all horrible.

Our evening at XIX was very very nice. Everything from the atmosphere to the wait staff and the food/drink was everything that you'd want it to be and then some. Friendly and attentive staff, our food and cocktails tasted delicious, the seafood was fresh and our steaks were prepared very well, exactly to our liking. The portions are small, and that is one thing that I do not like, which is why I couldn't give 5 stars across the board. That said, we will most certainly visit XIX again soon.

The overall ambience is quite luxurious but one feels fine dressed casually after work. The menu is well rounded and innovative. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and accommodating, attentive without being intrusive. He described the entrees accurately and told us what the chef's recommendations were on how they would best be cooked; we couldn't have been happier with the food and its presentation. The view of the city was great through the large windows right next to our table. Over all, a good experience.

We decided on XIX for brunch b/c couldn’t get a last-minute reservation at Lacroix. It was our first time there and probably our last. First of all, the service of this entire establishment, including the hotel itself is subpar. The concierge watched us struggle to find the correct elevator to get to the restaurant and didn’t even bother to offer help. When we finally asked, he seemed annoyed by the question and not very happy to help. The service at the restaurant itself was spotty. My fiancé ordered the crab cake entree, and they completely forgot the crab cakes! The overall food quality was not worth what we paid. Our waitress was very abrupt with our order and didn’t even send us off with a proper goodbye. For an “upscale” restaurant, the food and service was not what we’d expected.

The prices are extremely high and the food was just ok. I had the roast duck which was tough. My husband ordered the meat and cheese plate as an appetizer for the table. For $30 the portions were so tiny. There are so many better restaurants in Philadelphia. I won't be returning to Nineteen.
