The menu was VERY limited. Our seating was right beside the waiter station and very confined. Perhaps we’ll be back again after the pandemic.

The menu is extremely small, which we did not realize until we got there. The limited menu with higher prices led us to just get an appetizer and drinks.

Went on a Monday for the Lobster bake special which was half the price on other nights. Restaurant was quiet, few customers and appropriately spaced for Covid requirements. Service was pleasant but a bit uneven, flavor of the lobster bake was tasty if a little short on lobster and appetizers were good sized and flavorful. Was a good experience during Covid but not necessarily a place we would eat regularly

Sadly, I was disappointed. I was celebrating my birthday and made the reservation for 5 people, however they only allowed four of us to sit together and my mother sat alone across the room. It was too late for us to find another restaurant, so we settled.
Aside from that, there was only one waiter serving the entire restaurant (upstairs and downstairs). He was great, but slow service is the outcome of that scenario.

Hello Karen, Sorry you that we could not seat you next to each other however the city of Philadelphia does not currently allow more than 4 at a table to dine together in doors.

Brunch was great. The steak was cooked exactly how I like it (medium). The chicken and waffles was tasty. Bottle of champagne for $22 and comes with your choice of juice. The waiter and bartender were both attentive and nice. I would definitely go back.

The ambience was nice however I would have like to see more on the menu or more of the brunch options offered at a later time. However the drinks and the service were a 10 out of 10.

We had to wait after being told to come early. However the young lady (I can’t remember her name but I’ll remember her face) she gave us complementary Champagne and was hilarious. She made it worth it.

Good food and friendly staff. The lunch menu was small but had a nice variety of choices. Our order was taken but never placed and without us even complaining the staff realized the mistake, promptly placed the order, and then discounted our bill. Very impressed with how they handled the oversight. I will add though, that no one ever came back to take our credit card and we were delayed almost 15 more minutes just waiting to pay our check.
This place would be that much better with a bit more focus!

The service was excellent. Very fast, friendly, the server was wonderful. Made suggestions, brought food out immediately. The atmosphere is amazing.
Food choices were boring! Brunch was very limited. For the food offered the prices were quite high. Definitely better Brunch options in the nearby vicinity. Although the breakfast sandwich was well-made I could get a similar quality at a diner. I was surprised at the lack of creativity in the dishes.

Food was fine, nothing special and somewhat overpriced. I expected the food to be better quality since the menu was so limited and selective. Overall, it was good not great. Service also took a while to get our waters and orders placed upon seating.

Horrific and I do mean HORRIBLE, HORRIFIC!!!!!!!! The telephone girl-bartender-delivery girl-order taker girl Sara is terrible!!!! She is so inappropriate and immature that it’s a true disservice to Ref Owl. I will not be returning after being a loyal patron for 8 years which I think might have been when the originally opened. The one man show is nor a good look!
