Food was exceptional we decided to be in the room where the band was so it was pretty loud but that should be expected. Music was also good especially the band. Would strongly recommend

Everything was fine until the hostess and the manager asked us to leave before the waitress even brought the check. Just thought that was a bit inappropriate. Perhaps they could have advised the waitress to issue the check to send the signal that time was up. Furthermore it was so many empty tables around...

Ok... just ok.
We were a little confused on where to enter but figured it out.
We were greeted by a kind young lady who sat us immediately. We next hit the buffet. Great selection of food (omelettes, waffles, pasta and fruit).
Delicious Collards, Shrimp and Grits and French Toast.
Fried Chicken was a little bland, Fried Fish & Grilled Chicken was a little dry and overcooked.
They weren't too busy when we arrived but business picked up almost instantly and I noticed all food items were replenished instantly w visibly attractive food items.
I was full and unable to eat more but wished I would have had that food instead.
My cousin is a vegetarian and was made an alternative that was absolutely delish.
There was entertainment throughout brunch that kept the atmosphere lively.
Thankfully there was on onsite parking lot which is always a bonus.

food was phenomenal. however our waiter would disappear - he never asked did we want anything besides water and once we were done eating it took him over 30 minutes to bring the check.

Went for the weekend brunch. The live entertainment late but I went for the food! Food was good. Soul food for Brunch?!?! Yes please. This is a lot better than your traditional brunch spots. You will not be disappointed.

My friends and I enjoyed our evening. It was our first visit to this restaurant. We are from Maryland and the last two years we ventured out to the South restaurant and Warmdaddy's. I guess our next stop will be Green Soul. I would recommend the three establishment without doubt. thanks for the service.

The food selection was pretty small but the items that were there taste very good and we wanted the corn bread and to have a 6 pm reservation and was told that there was no more corn bread to be purchased. With 3 hours left for business how do you run out of one of the most popular items on the menu . Very disappointed.

Service was not good the waiter I feel had too many tables so we suffered on service and quality of service it he kept having to leave to take care of other tables and we would be in the middle of saying something I feel he was just overwhelmed with too many tables. The noise level was very loud due to two different events going on in the building. Our food took a long time and we waited for water and small things to go trays and dessert and bill. I think they should not get big table and small tables at the same time.

I do like Relish but that night was not a great night. The waiter due to the circumstances could not give a good performance.

I dine at Relish regularly, and was joined on this particular occasion by 3 of my Sorors for our annual Christmas Dinner. As always, the food was superb, but we were ALL DISAPPOINTED THAT THERE WAS NO CURRIED CHICKEN SALAD, which we all look forward to whenever we visit the buffet at Relish. Also, the drinks are still a bit expensive, and there are good buffets in Philly that include soft drinks in the price, but otherwise, we enjoyed the Sunday Supper.

Went for carriibbean night and found out it was also karaoke so that’s a plus. The jerk pineapple shrimp appetizer just tasted like gravy. Not jerk at all. I initially had the seafood stuffed salmon. The cream sauce that was on top looked like a glob of white glue and had no flavor. I reluctantly sent it back (I try hard to not send food back). I then got the snapper with curry shrimp. The snapper was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The 2 curry shrimp on top was just ok. I think the chef has a hard time making sauces. You could tell flour was used because again it had a paste like texture. The greens were tasty. The mac and cheese was extremely dry, yet had a good flavor. The best past, hands down was the cornbread. I would love to come again because we had so much fun during karaoke but the food is underwhelming. I was disappointed in this “soul food” as were my friends. To be honest I didn't expect much because I was also underwhelmed when I ate at Warm Daddy’s. The service is also extremely slow, probably because they had large parties, I don’t know.

The seafood salmon with spinach and sweet potatoe mash and side order of collard greens with Turkey meat was excellent. The cornbread skillet was very good. The service was excellent.

Food (appetizers) were great, but service was horrible. The main meal, after over two hours of waiting for it, was cold, but ate it the next day, and it tasted awesome. Hostess & manager were great also, but the waitress & kitchen not in the same page. By the end of the night the manager took great care of us...

The hostess and waitress were very, very nice and accommodating.
However, the pasta and omelette cooks were rude. They were dismissive and gruff when asked a question. That’s not good for first time customers.

We went on a Sunday for dinner; didnt realize it was a buffet. The buffet turned out to be a pleasant surprise. There was plenty of options and it included a pasta station. The service was pretty good. All and all it was worth the money and I would do the buffet again.

I always enjoy Relish, the food is delicious. We had a party of 5, 3 people order ice tea mixed with lemonade. Each had a refill and was charged for each drink. The waitress said because Relish makes it themselves and has to use lemon, sugar and tea that it cost more and refills were not allowed every drink cost. If that is the case, she should have made it clear from the onset. I understand paying for each speciality drinks or liquor, but lemonade and tea?

The restaurant was very inviting. The staff conducted themselves in a professional manner. Most of all the food was great. I have never in my life tasted grits that melted in my mouth.👍👍
