My family and I were very disappointed with the dinner buffet. The cabbage and greens were very bland and cold. The roast beef had no flavor. There wasn’t a large variety of food. There was no salmon which is listed as a part of the buffet. Also my favor thing at the buffet is the pasta bar which was replace with a taco bar.

The reservation was made over a month ago through open table and confirmed the day before our reservation. However our table was not ready at the time allotted for our reservation. We were seated 20 min after our set time. After being seated we waited another 20 min before receiving drinks and 30 min before our order was taken. It literally took us 2.5 hours to be seated and served. By the time we did receive our meals, everyone at our table had to take their food to go. We paid over $300 to have our food put in togo containers. Not one manager came over to apologize and the waitress never apologized as well until after I initiated a conversation with the manager. They took only 20% of the bill after me and my brother in law complained. My family and I, all 15 of us, have supported this restaurant on numerous occasions but evidently they do not value us as much as we value supporting our neighborhood businesses. We have all vowed to never patronize Relish ever again. It’s unfortunate that my daughter was asking to have her high school graduation dinner there; well that won’t happen!!!

Overall, the food was excellent and the service was good. We arrived for a 9:30 reservation, and provided with menu specials. They ran out of 2 of the 3 specials, which were the 2 we were wanted to get. It also came as a surprise that we had to pay a cover to sit on the jazz side which was charged per set per person. But the singer was lovely and the music was great!

I had a great time. I was looking fro a BoB to patronize while in Philly for the weekend and was not disappointed. The seafood mac and cornbread were real stars along with the Henny Sangria. The live music that was playing really tied the mood together for me and it will definitely be a stop on my next trip.

So i would have gave this place a 4 if the music was a little lower in the jazz room the room is too small for the band to play that volume. Also, the server keep forgetting everything such as drinks and condiments. The host was really nice who greeted us at the entrance to the jazz resturant. They actually ran out of soda and was going to use the bar machines which we refused. The Stuffed salmon was good but very small portion. However, I think its just because it was Salmon. The place was clean and nice. The workers were smily. However, ill return again but only for a happy hour and next time ill sit in the karoke
room.

The food was fine but the service was terrible, there was no communication regarding my table being charged for water, and the server was not willing to present a birthday cake to my party even though there was time remaining on our reservation.

The food at Relish is fantastic! All food items are cooked to perfection. Culinary items are flavorful yet not too salty or spicy. Staff super friendly and helpful. It was loud where we were seated because there was a small birthday party table in effect. The atmosphere is nice at the restaurant. I don't complain about much. But the only thing that was offensive was a damp odor where we were seated. I think the carpet on the closed in patio may have collected some rain. But other than that great experience.

Every time I go to Relish it is the same thing, horrible service, food comes out cold, takes an hour and a half to 2 hours to come out. Napkins on table dirty, dried up food(I am praying it was food and nothing else) on my cup given by the bar. Then the managers, waiters, servers, hostesses have the nerve to get an attitude with you when you complain about your service. I have been a patron of Relish for years, even back when it was Sadiqi's and they are always out of something that is a main item on their menu, just very disappointing. Try to give black business some support and they seem to fall short everytime. The divisional manager was actually there and gave me a pass for us to come to one of the other restaurants at a later date but I do not think I will partake, just very disappointing. But South is the best, to me, out of their 4 restaurants. Relish is not fine dining at all! Wish I chose somewhere else for my brother's birthday instead of going here on Friday.

I think this was an off visit. Seems like everything we ordered was an issue. Took 15 mins just to get drinks. Food was not was we were told. Ordered Jerk chicken and got barbecue chicken. I could go on and on. I will give them another chance as I have had good experience in the past.

Went to Relish to see Will Downing with my mother. Had reservations & when we got there, no seating was available for the performance so we had to be seated outside of the area he was performing. Portions are small..$5 for 2 spoonfuls of cabbage as a side. Cake were not slices but slithers. Restaurant menu not the same as open table menu as a lot of items on open table were not available there. Staff was very friendly and atmosphere was good. Good to see young men clean and well groomed working hard. I won’t be going back.

Made reservations for my husband's birthday-Sunday. Our second time visiting. Upon arriving I did not know that Sunday was buffet. Husband became disappointed because he wasn't sure whether there would be something on the buffet that he would like. Well, the disappointment went away when many of his soul food items were on the table-Fried fish, salmon rice just to name a few. That mac and cheese was out of this world. I talked about for 2 days. Worth the price. Ready to book my birthday brunch or dinner for a few friends in April.

The food was great. I had
a reservation for 6 but one person did not show we were charged the gratuity with 5 people although gratuity
Is automatically charged at 6 people. The server took about 5 minutes to get my guest a spoon so her soup was cold. Despite that I will go back again armed with more info also did not know we had to have brunch did not say was an option

It seemed to be more breading in the crab cakes than crab. The salmon was tasty but over-cooked. The cornbread was excellent.

I think the 3 course Thursday deal brings out more people than the staff expects. The service is very slow . I’ll still continue to support and no one should ever have to wait almost 40 minutes to check out!!

When I first introduced to Relish it was a great experience. Even had my sons birthday and graduation brunch there. Recently on my last visits I was surprised at having a table that wobbled the whole time the food was cold. My most recent visit was 3/28/19. My party and I was seated right away but it took 20 mins for the waiter to come my table drinks took another 25 mins the food took 45mins or more and when it arrived it was cold the turkey wings dried out and we were missing things from my our order. Don’t get me wrong Relish has treated good in the past. I really can’t understand y this time I just received poor service.
