    First time there and they didn’t disappoint!!! Great ambiance. I particularly enjoy a darker venue after a hectic work week. The bar was well stocked with my favorites. The bar is tastefully enhanced with changing colored lights. The back of the restaurant has a small outdoor lounge for you to enjoy an after dinner drink. Tori was wonderful and gave us great appetizer recommendations. Everything on the menu was perfect.

    The atmosphere is amazing and the food was really good! But the service was not so good. I had to wait a long time for 2 dishes and in the end, the waiter told me that the kitchen was closed so I could not have the main course.

    Everything about my first visit to Frame restaurant was excellent. We arrived early, at 6:30, and we were the only patrons there. When we were finished more people were coming into the restaurant. I loved the fact that we were early and it was quiet. The ambience is lovely. We had the shrimp and scallops appetizer with garlic French toast, the French cut chicken for two was served with delicious mashed potatoes and perfectly done broccoli. Everything was really excellent served hot and service was wonderful. Then we decided to have bananas Foster for dessert and what a treat. I would recommend this for anyone anytime and I will certainly be going again.

    Although they offer patio reservations - when we arrived they told us it’s not really a nice place to eat - they were right. Don’t go here if you need to eat outside. We asked for a simple addition to each of three things: spinach added to salmon and to ham Benedicts and an extra poached egg on the avocado toast. Waitress said of course, no problem. But of our requests were fulfilled. However food was delicious as it was and worth it.

    The small plates were excellent. We would highly recommend the scallops and the calamari. Our server, who recommended the calamari, let’s us know the portion was enough for sharing and she was spot on. The entrees were also very good. The atmosphere is geared to a slightly younger clientele, as we are one the north end of 65. Over all is was a very good dining experience. We were happy we we went.

    I was really surprised at how poorly this turned out. Very limited wine selection some of which they did not even have. When they brought my wife their Austrian Riesling, it was so bad that we thought it was a Chardonnay. The cheese board was fine but the spaghetti was not actually spaghetti. Just undercooked, bland, egg noodles. The final straw was that the service was quite poor. We could not get water refilled at any point in our meal despite asking multiple times and then were surprised when the bill came that a mandatory 22% gratuity had been added. This seems like more of a bar/nightspot then a restaurant. If that's what you are looking for, more power to you but if you are looking for a nice meal, this is not the place.

    So so underwhelming. There wasn't a single item on the menu that a frat boy couldn't make the day after a party, the most complex/creative of which was eggs benedict with potatoes. The ambience was weird, extremely dark and random canvas prints of Marilyn Monroe, some skyscraper, etc. Bathroom had a 60 liter garbage bag in a 20 liter bin. Just totally careless. Cocktails were generic and started at $18. Beer list includes 4 beers, two of which are Yuengling and Budweiser. We went because we planned poorly and were very hungry, just go somewhere else.

    while I enjoy the area. as soon as you walk in it's really small, dark & it projects a lot of noise when there's a larger gathering. I asked for my steak medium and it came out well done and my friends burger was over cooked as well. The drinks were good but rather small for the price.

    I set up our reservation because a friend recommended it. It did not disappoint - the food was cooked very well and had plenty of flavor. The ambiance felt upscale and trendy. It was pretty early in the evening, and it was the start to a long holiday weekend, so the dining room was empty when we arrived. I doubt this is the case normally so I would still recommend to make reservations.

    FRAME has only been open for a month, so I’m going to give a little latitude, but probably won’t be on my list of brunch spots in the future. The food was outstanding - sincerely. Steak and eggs were done perfectly. Eggs Benedict was not drowned in hollandaise sauce, and had just the right kick to it. The French toast is slamming. Whomever is running the kitchen? Give them a raise, and then hire a staff to run your front of house. It’s Sunday brunch (Mothers Day no less), do we need club music and running disco lights throughout? I asked for a “double Tito’s Bloody Mary” (a standard brunch beverage one would think), and I received their specialty Bloody Mary that is made with tequila and is “clear” — that’s not a Bloody Mary, that’s a made up drink that requires a different name, and I nearly gagged. When I learned that the bar had no tomato juice (ya know… the “blood”), I settled on coffee. A half filled cup of warmish coffee was brought to the table that I thought perhaps was French pressed, but I don’t know what that was… The staff is young and kind but inexperienced. This place looks like it could be a fun gathering spot for cocktails. I don’t know what FRAME will be when it finds it’s way, but right now it seems to have a clear identity crisis when it comes to Sunday brunch. I wish them well.

    For $18 cocktails the drinks were underwhelming tasted like juice. Asked two different bartenders what they recommend on the menu for apps and entrees and neither of them actually liked anything on the menu (like they don’t like many veggies or seafood as a preference?). They could’ve just shared what most people order….anyway super unhelpful and the stuffed mushroom was okay decided to leave and not stay for dinner.

    We did not have a great experience. The food was not worth the price. Drinks and food extremely overpriced for what the quality was. Maybe we will try again but we did not enjoy our time here. The vibes were off, definitely not a great date spot and we came around 8pm. The food looked better than it tasted. Drinks were not good. Seems to be a place that is very aesthetic but quality is just not there. Management was very receptive and friendly though - the owner noticed we were not impressed and actually listened to what we had to say. Which was appreciated. We will maybe try again another time.

    Drinks - My happy place, very good. For app we got Tuna Tartare and the Burrata special - very good. Entree - Steak was over cooked, they had macaroni and cheese surrounding it and it was not good. Seafood mac was over cooked and not cheesy. The broccolini side was undercooked. The Brussels sprouts were the only good thing about the entree portion. Not sure who it was on staff, but during our dessert the man working the front told us we need to leave because they had another table. We still had full espresso martinis and were waiting on our check from the server. Not for nothing we had a $500+ bill. Overall - I would go there for a cocktail and a few apps, that’s it.

    Frame has become our "go to place" for great dining out in Philly. Frame offers both small and large plates that are seasonally perfect. The bar is intimate with professionals mixing amazing cocktails from the past, present and future. The staff and management are top rate. Deserts???? Don't get me started. Some of the best in town along with a full coffee/espresso service "wit and wit-out" booze. Frame is not over the top expensive by any means even though the food, service and ambiance are all over the top. A tiny wine list (both in price and selection) but the cocktails make up for this in my book. We love Frame.
