    I booked a 6:30pm table on Saturday for a birthday celebration. It was confirmed by open table but when we got to the place at 6:30pm the doors were locked. What a joke. Why should I trust open table with my reservations in the future?

    We got to the place about 5 minutes after our reservation started and it was closed. We missed out going here and we weren’t sure why we could even make a reservation if the place was gonna be closed

    We went to Leda and the Swan for post birthday dinner cocktails. We booked through OpenTable to be close to the entertainment. Gabrielle Chapman and the Vortex did not disappoint. They had a great rapport with the crowd and Gabrielle showed her beautiful vocal register while her guitarist played beautifully. A mix of their own upcoming EPs in addition to covers of some classics. The cocktails were delicious. Easy to drink and were beautiful in how they were built in each glass. Definitely recommend for a late extension to date night or a chill girls night out.

    Air conditioning wasn’t on or wasn’t working. The establishment then had the audacity to charge $2 “regular” ice cubes and $5 for seltzer water out of the beverage gun. Management should take the initiative to accommodate patrons when dealing with uncomfortable circumstances.

    Wasn’t very impressed. The place did not seem clean. Gave me the “after club hours” vibes when they turn the lights on and you can see the trash on floors. They had a live performer which was nice. Other than that, take your date elsewhere.

    This is a spot that I take my girl just to hang out..I love the whole live experience and so does she..the staff are great and friendly, drinks arent overpriced imo. the ambiance in the place is really laid back and cool. You definitely wouldn't go wrong with choosing this spot to hang out on a Fri or Sat

    We paid $10 ($5 each) to reserve a table for a live show for a special occasion. We were sat upstairs with zero visibility to the show nor any part of the ambiance, completely secluded. If I would have known this, we would have just sat at the bar. Drinks were good, but it was like having drinks at any other bar in Philadelphia not the experience we thought we would have. First and last time.

    They only opened up within the past few weeks, but clearly have a team that knows what they're doing. This was my second time going and drinks are consistently amazing. They have a very creative cocktail menu, but you can get almost anything you want. I'd be curious if they change the layout in the future because there's lots of dead space. But the ambiance and decor are pretty cool.

    Booked as something different for a birthday and was excited to experience live music. But instead as we were a group we were put in a weird mezzanine space with no view of live music - no atmosphere - unfinished decor and sub standard experience despite paying upfront per person.

    Would not go back. Food was mediocre and over-priced. Service was poor (got our order wrong, forgot about a dish, didn’t always clear plates, etc.). Music was SO loud. You can’t have any type of conversation at all. Nice idea but execution is poor.

    Leda & The Swan is not a place to come for a meal - it is the place to come for an amazing experience with excellent cocktails, small plate-snacks (sushi, gyoza, fries, edamame, bao buns, etc.), and to enjoy live music. I made a reservation here for my best friend's birthday for a group of 8. Service was outstanding. Drinks are creative and tasty. Snacks were also delicious (spicy tuna roll was spicy and fried gyoza was delightfully crispy!). I will definitely be coming back to this hidden gem in the city.
