The best dining experience I have in years. Everything was top notch from the valet to the dessert.
The atmosphere, food, and service was impeccable.
Best quality food with a warm cozy atmosphere.
Thew bartender was very solicitous. Oyer server was first-rate, attentive without hovering or rushing us. Appetizers and entrees were to die for. Did I leave anything out???
They just don't make them like this anymore. Neighborhood restaurants filled with local people. Great food, drink, service and atmosphere. Love it here.
Never disappoints. Delicious food and classic atmosphere. Excellent service.
Excellent - as always. Fantastic foos, service and ambiance. Pricey, but worth it.
Great character here - feels like stepping back in time 70 years or more - but attentive staff and excellent food.
(WARNING to first-timers - if you're driving avoid Clymer St. - the restroom at Saloon is wider. Seriously.)
This place is a gem, great food & service. The people are lovely and the ambience is superb
Great food great service great wine list!
Always the most AMAZING experience. Tom is the best mixologist EVER!!!!
Expect tables to burst into Happy Birthday or other celebratory sounds - Saloon is a special occasion splurge. Go for the South Philly vibe, rich & heavy traditional Italian menu, good service, good wine. It’s pricey but memorable. While it’s a splurge, it’s festive & cozy in chilly weather - and delicious. No one will rush you. We happily spent 3 hours lingering over every course. Magical night.
Fantastic meal and service. The Saloon is one of my all-time favorites!
Beautiful interior. A wonderful neighborhood gem. Lots of quirky characters here, and some really excellent food. Wine list is a bit small, but most people should be able to find something they like.
Service was excellent! Food was incredible
We had a awesome dinner .
The service and food are excellent. We sat downstairs and it was very loud to the point where it hindered the ability for our party to converse without shouting sometimes . …..I think some people just don’t realize how loud they are and in a bustling atmosphere, the noise level just keeps increasing.
My only compliant is that a side of pasta with the chicken parm was $12! The chicken parm is a huge serving but doesn’t come with a side of pasta apparently. most parm dishes do come with a side of pasta….I just specified that the side of pasta be ziti or rigatoni, not spaghetti. Didn’t really need or want it so would’ve been nice if we were told there was a charge, not just that “we can do that”.
The Saloon is an all time Philly Favorite for 50+ years!
Saloon is hands down the best reataurant in Philly!!
The best food and great service!!!
Everything about the Saloon dinning experience was outstanding, the food is the best quality & quantity that anyone could ask for.
A classic, Italian chop house with exceptional staff, ambiance and food. My wife and I loved it very much and will plan to go back there around the holidays. Frankie and Joey are great bar tenders and know how to treat their regulars.
Always an A+++ dinner and drinks. This is a must have experience every time we are in the city. You can’t go wrong with any meal you order and do yourself a favor and order raviolis as your side. Omg they are absolutely the best!
Great food and service
Everything about this place is amazing. From the layout and decor to the employees. Every person was sure to say hello walking past. Some of the most authentic and tasty Italian food I’ve ever had, even things that I thought would be basic like the ravioli somehow came over the top. You could tell that all the ingredients were fresh and hand made, the chefs cooked everything to perfection, and our waitress Kimberly was great with making recommendations at every course from apps through desserts and drinks in along the way.
Been patrons of the Saloon for decades, last night's experience was dissapointing. None of the 5-star service they have always been known for.
It was a very enjoyable time
Our waitress was excellent
Been a Saloon fan for 30 years… always top notch food and service
Fabulous restaurant. Incredible food, nice ambiance. Prompt and precise service.
Amazing dinner again! We celebrated our friend Sarah's birthday and it was just perfection in every aspect! Food is to die for and our server Alyssa was so nice, attentive and made us all feel so welcome!
Some of our favorites, lobster fra diovlo, braciole, paparadelle bolognese, sampler for appetizer, veal chop parmesan!
Thank you Saloon we will definitely be back!
Fantastic meal. Sat at the bar and Joe was our server. Started with a dirty martini with bleu cheese stuffed olives. For appetizer I had the Clams Pavorotti recommended by Joe. Excellent! For dinner my other half had the Petite Filet which she really enjoyed. I had the veal chop with mushrooms. Excellent! We split a chocolate lava cake with ice cream for dessert.
The whole place is gorgeous but the upstairs atmosphere is exceptional!!! You must visit. Alyssa and Gemma are great waitresses as well!
We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. Last time we were there was many years ago! It was great then and it is still great! Food is very good! Waitress was very attentive
After 30 years of dining at The Saloon, still out favorite place to go! Food was outstanding!
I have been dining at the Saloon for decades and it’s always fabulous. I love their radicchio crab salad and had the lobster and shrimp fra Diablo with homemade pasta and my husband had the lobster bisque and the eggplant stuffed chicken. The fresh thick bread was warm snd served with homemade pesto. He had the cannoli and I took home the pecan tart. Can’t wait for our next trip to Philly!!
Always good 👍
Excellent food and service. The Saloon is always a great experience.
We went to saloon for my 40th bday, just my boyfriend and I. The service, the food… excellent. Highly recommend veal parm on the bone, the anti pasta for 2, and the scallops cognac (w crab meat). The servers and bartenders were also incredibly beautiful.
Excellent service, food and ambiance!!
Great service and food was delicious.
