About the restaurant
BYOB French restaurant with a unique blend of Southern-inspired cuisine and bistro classics: think Confit Fried Chicken and Waffle, and Steak au Poivre. The ambiance is cozy and inviting, with antique mirrors lining the walls, candlelight, and warm and friendly service. We have seasonal outdoor seating along a lovely alleyway with potted blooms and bird serenades.

Located on historic Antique Row, this charming spot is a great place to meet for a special occasion, date-night, business meal, or a casual dinner with friends. This is a small family-owned business and everything is made to order. Grab your favorite bottle of wine and head to this hidden gem to experience a contemporary take on French cuisine.

Been to Mabu a few times always ordered my faves. This time we switched it up. Pork katsu and egg sandwich and salad lyonnaise. Everything was perfect. The taste blew me away. Now I want to go back and sample the entire menu! Service was excellent. Personable and attentive

GREAT FOOD…GREAT DRINKS…GREAT PEOPLE!

Our focus is simply that. We are a full service restaurant with a full bar, and amazing everyday brunch, lunch and dinner. Located right in the Italian Market area of South Philadelphia gives us access to a variety of different ingredients allowing us to make anything our hearts desire. We make everything here from our chips to our oven roasted meats and do not limit ourselves to one cuisine. A true scratch kitchen!

What do we keep in mind when creating our dishes? YOU, OUR AMAZING GUESTS!

It's a pleasant place to dine. I was invited to sit in the spacious lobby to wait for my guest. Comfortable seating, tables, water. The Caesar salad was tasty but it was served in a very small bowl and spilled all over the table. I prefer to see actual anchovies rather than mashed into dressing. Servers were very nice but a bit stingy with the ice cubes. No decaf coffee available. I would recommend if someone wants to dine in a place that is not crowded and has a pleasant atmosphere.

We went for our anniversary and they immediately brought us complimentary glasses of champagne. The service was good, food was solid overall. Even for a slow day in the restaurant the music and overall atmosphere was fairly loud. We will likely bring friends back here as a group.

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! It was my first time ordering brunch and everything was outstanding! The food , the service, the music. I ordered the chicken cheesesteak omelette, chicken gumbo and grits ( I was skeptical about the grits at first but they taste absolutely delicious with the gumbo) and chicken and red velvet pancakes!
