    This place is nice, but expensive for pretty much basic food. The fall sangria was tasty, not too sweet. The homemade chips were great. We sat indoors and upstairs, which was quiet. It was a bit difficult to get to because they are doing road construction.

    My wait staff "John" was very attentive. The one concern is they kept taking my fork & not replacing until I asked for it. My food lacked flavor, and was luke warm when it arrived to our table upstairs. My salmon skin was soggy and not crispy. Calamari was thick, chewy and not crispy. Had to send fries back because they were cold and my fries have to be hot. It was my first time here and to be honest, I do not have the desire to return.

    Reservations for 7:30, I get there at 7:30 but it took 5-10 minutes for someone to even greet me while I waited at the hostess table. Finally when a hostess acknowledged my presence and decided to walk me over to my table, a server was staring at me with a look of distain while whispering to a man who looked like a manager. That server ended up being my server and first thing she says is…”our kitchen closes in 20 minutes, so if you want food, you have to put in your order now.” I wanted to let her know that I was on time for a reservation and if your staff if running behind on seating people in an empty restaurant, maybe consider not taking reservations 30 minutes to close. I don’t think I’ll ever come back here. I still graciously tipped the server over 20% but she wasn’t very pleasant and the atmosphere within the first 10 minutes made it hard for me to enjoy my time and my meal.

    Food and alcohol choices are great. Really liked the easy parking at this venue and also that it's very close to Wells Fargo Ctr & FDR Park and fairly close to Lincoln Financial Field and Citizens Bank Park.

    Excellent restaurant within walking distance from the hotel. We had incredible service and food was delicious. Its the type of service where it feels like the owner might be bringing out your food. Our visit was was during happy hour so we got a few appetizers- they were unique and great presentation. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting Philly!

    Creative menu with just enough veggie and fish offerings. Nice people, interesting menu and nice old reuse building. The outdoor area looked fun but we needed a quiet spot and that was available as well. Slightly pricy for lunch but worth it!!

    The staff at The Gatehouse are fantastic and knowledgeable. This menu has something for everyone like tuna nachos, veggie options, grilled shrimp, and the burgers are to die for! Nice drink list as well. The outdoor dining area and beer garden are really nice getaways from the busy city. Quiet, breezy, and spacious.

    Hostess did not seem very welcoming. Noisy atmosphere upstairs even with the few tables that were filled. Kitchen Service seemed disorganized with entrees coming out before appetizers. With entree served on a small appetizer plate. Made it difficult to eat. Waiter was pleasant however and made the experience bearable.

    Went to the Gatehouse for a pre concert dinner. While the food was good and all who were servicing our table very nice they seem to be lacking employees. Our server seemed to have too much to do so could not be attentive to all of his customers. We waited about 20 minutes for our check once we asked for it then waited again to get our card and receipt. Hopefully they will be able to get this worked out.

    Location was nice- there are water views from upstairs. The staff were friendly and accommodating but not always around. The French Fries tasted as if they had been sitting around for hours and were extremely salty. The chicken salad sandwich was so-so. Was happy to have been there but I don’t think I will rush back. If you want a fun spot by the water then I would suggest trying it out.

    We were in town for the Kenny Chesney concert and staying at the Courtyard. It was a 5 minute walk away and we were impressed with the food and service. The calamari was fried perfectly and the dipping sauce was awesome (happy that the chef isn't afraid to use some spice). Calibrian wings were fantastic, cooked perfectly and the sweet/heat of the spice was awesome. I got the reuben sandwich for dinner and the choice of the kielbasa made the sandwich. We had to try the desert and wanted the cannoli but they were out of the cookie crumbles so they substituted the churros with the chocolate sauce. Chocolate sauce was off the charts. Loved the cannoli filling as well. Can't go wrong here.

    When my boyfriend and I first got there the hostess was rude. She didn't say hello. Then she tried to sit us at a table that was in the sun. When we told her we have a reservation, and that we would like to sit out of the sun, she said that we had to wait because other people made reservations and picked certain chairs. Then she came back and said we can sit somewhere else. Her behavior was totally unacceptable, racist, and rude. However, the server was very nice and attentive. We really enjoyed the food and the outside atmosphere.
