    This was one of our stops during our speakeasy bar hop throughout Philadelphia. By far one of the nicest places that we visited. Our server, Clarissa, was an absolute Rockstar. We did not eat a lot at the restaurant so can't leave a good review on the food. But the calamari was delicious. The cocktails are excellent and the ambiance was wonderful with a great jazz trio playing every night

    In from out of town, we would never have picked this place. But is was close to our hotel and on the hotel’s recommendation list. What a great spot! The food was fabulous. Not knowing what to expect, I went safe with a burger. It was so good. My wife had the salmon and it was really good (we’re visiting from Seattle…we have salmon at least once a week. And Time’s salmon was top-notch…cooked PERFECTLY.) Our server, of course I can’t remember her name, was awesome. It’s tough walking into a restaurant that you know absolutely zero about. But Time was just so much better than I would have guessed. 5 stars for sure. If I lived here, I go to Time again…and again…

    This was our first experience with Time and it won’t be our last. The food was fantastic. We’ve read in other reviews that service is slow. It isn’t speedy, but the food was made to order and delicious! It was nice to be able to sit at our table and enjoy the music with our drinks before ordering. If you’re in a rush, this isn’t the place for you, but if you want a relaxing, fabulous meal, make your reservations!

    The experience was top notch from the service, the ambience, music, drinks and wow the food. Treat yourself with a visit to Time. We were visiting from DC for a one day trip and was fortunate to find this place. Kudos to the chef(s). We had the seafood chowder, tomato cheese appetizer with toast and shared the pan seared scallops and ended with dessert and coffee. Bravo!

    There was a live band and we were charged for the band on our bill and not informed that. I think it should have been great to ask if we were ok with that, not just put it on the bill without patrons knowing Food was very delicious and drinks were okv

    Food was good. Very dark in the room though and had to use flashlight feature on phone to see menu. Also, the check revealed a surcharge for Live Music added on to it. So basically each person pays a cover charge and you don't even know it. I did not like that.

    It was alright, the food and drinks were good but not anything spectacular. I knew going into it we may get the performer fee added to the bill but it was still kind of annoying that you didn't really have a choice in the matter especially if you would have opted to not listen to the performance. If there was at least times mentioned when there's usually live performances occurring that would have been useful for decision-making. Service was really slow and the waitress walked by us at least 2-3 times and even glanced towards the table but didn't check on us even though we clearly had very empty water and drink glasses. I know they weren't that busy because I had a clear view of the waiter station they were sitting at. We honestly would have stayed longer if it didn't take so long to get a new drink. I might try the other side (whiskey bar side) but I most likely wouldn't come back here.

    We were first greeted by the host who was super friendly and willing to accommodate our party of 5 instead of 4. He had to get creative with seating to make this happen. The waiter Jamie was fantastic and helpful and friendly. Food was delicious and the live music was FANTASTIC! We will be back!

    Would recommend the shrimp and grits, great taste. Fusili pasta was very good, pan seared scallops also good however only served with three scallops. Recognize food costs have and continue to increase but three scallops for $36 is to pricey for me. Reasonably priced wines. Pot de crème for dessert outstanding. Added surcharge for live music which was clearly spelled out when we made our reservation which was fine. Will dine again and try the sandwiches

    So I chose Time based on the reviews of the good which were good and the promise of live music during dinner which sounded fun. So, the good was great. We had the mussels as an appetizer which were excellent. Served in a spicy broth with sausage. My wife had the Time burger and I had the braised short rib dish done with an Asian flair. Both were excellent! But our server was terrible. After taking our order and bringing food, she disappeared. No check in on the meal. I had a cocktail and would’ve ordered a glass of wine with my meal, but no one there to get it. We had to ask another server for extra napkins. Pretty bad service all around. Then the live entertainment. They charge each patron a $5 fee (so $10 for us) for a keyboard player that did lounge music and sounded like Yorku the pirate from the movie Summer Rental with john Candy. If this is their idea of live entertainment, they better rethink their concept. Only the good saved the night. I wouldn’t ho back and wouldn’t recommend.
