I treated my son for his birthday as we both really enjoy good food. This restaurant is nearby and I have been there several times over the years. We really enjoyed our meal and would recommend it in a minute. Only problem for me is the expense!
We had a party of 8 and the food was amazing! Everyone raved about their individual dishes. Service was great with no complaints at all. We will definitely be going back. We wished we came earlier to spend time at 2nd floor bar. Highly recommended!!!
Loved the ambiance, great service, and delicious food!
The service was exceptional. The food was great.
Great food and service!
Went with friends. Potato leek soup was delicious. Veal picante was ok sauce was a little heavy. My friend had the Filet and mashers and she said it was excellent as was her salad.
Would definitely go again. Waitstaff was excellent.
Mark was fantastic at having our requested table avaliable. Gabriella was a phenomenal server, very friendly and attentive. Frank had our drinks spot on. Thanks for another great night at the saloon
Awesome food. Delish. And Christa was a great server.
A South Philadelphia classic. My favorite “go to” restaurant. Richie, Mark, and Tommy are outstanding hosts in every way. I just love this place!
After not having been to the Saloon for many years, enjoyed lunch for a friend's birthday and we couldn't have made a better choice! Food was delicious and high quality, just as it has been for many, many years. Portions were generous. Our service was better than top notch thanks to the helpful and attentive, Anthony. And, the dessert selection was extensive for a lunch offering. If, like me, you have not been to the Saloon in a while, get there soon and go back often. I plan too!
Saloon is a excellent resturant from back in the day. The decor downstairs reminds me of where I grew up in neighborhood. From beginning til end was amazing
This place is always amazing. Quickly becoming our go to spot for date night and special occasions. The food is amazing. The stuffed poblano peppers are TO DIE FOR. They always have an extensive list of specials that does not disappoint and the service is top notch.
This was the first time back to the Saloon in about 20 years and it is still terrific. I will return soon.
Dinner was awesome as usual! After all of these years the Saloon is still on of the best restaurants in Philadelphia.
the veal was excellent (as usual) but the branzino was fantastic... better than restaurants specializing in seafood...
Service was perfect! Food spectacular!
Awesome food and service in a very cozy atmosphere. Free valet parking is a huge bonus. The desserts are out of this world!
Food is always fantastic. I expect nothing less from the Saloon. Filet Moda is by far the best steak I've ever eaten. Quality meats and ingredients really shows. Decor is always amazing to look at and the waitstaff went above and beyond. Can't wait to go back.
Best Italian food in South philly
1st Time there. Excellent experience! We’ll be back!
Outstanding evening for us. My wife had never been there and my last visit was more than fifteen years ago. Everything about the evening was special with all four courses just perfect. We had a special house appetizer with a mix of four items, ask for the clams Pavarotti, you will be very pleased with your order!1
Exceptional food, service and value. Locally owned and operated. This is the real deal. Everyone we take here has either been here and loves it or will return. They haven’t been in business for over 50 years if they didn’t have great food.
Wonderful experience! Terrific food, great ambiance!
The best Italian in Philly hands down
Fantastic service and food. This was my third time at Saloon and I have never been disappointed. This is Philly’s best kept secret!
Took three of my Brooklynite friends for a South Philly lunch experience. They all loved it - the food, the decor/ ambiance, the service, the neighborhood. All want to go again, might even bring wives next time.
It was a late Valentine’s Day dinner. Arrived before reservation to start with a drink. Host was so nice and seated us within 10 minutes. Still earlier than our reservation.
I got the surf and turf special is it was AMAZING. Staff makes you feel special and food has always been perfect.
The spinach salad was very unique, I really enjoyed it! We all loved the atmosphere and the neighborhood feeling.
We made a last minute reservation and it turned out to be fabulous. Incredible food and great service at a nice corner table upstairs. Top notch experience overall
Beautiful place. Great service. Food was good but overpriced. Most menu items sounded alike.
My girlfriend and I went for dinner on Valentine’s Day. Tables were full, but it was not extremely crowded. I liked that lots of room was left between tables (they could have easily crammed a few more in) and it was not loud. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. They had many specials, which all sounded good. I ended up spending more than I planned because I chose a veal porterhouse from the special and didn’t ask the price. Drinks were not that expensive either. Staff was attentive, professional and friendly with the exception of a young man who bussed the table in between servings rather abruptly.
I had not been to Saloon in years. I viewed it as a dinosaur of a place - with dark paneled walls and very formal waiters and hosts dressed in suits. While it does have an old fashioned feel to it, It also represents such a welcome contrast to the largely informal dining now in south Philly. The food was outstanding. There were so many specials- all of which sounded so good that it was very difficult to choose. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and loved the old time South Philly ambiance too. I hope it never changes!
Beautiful place. Great spot for romantic evening. Outstanding food. It could use a little more variety on the menu especially in the appetizers, and mains.
Amazing food, beautiful atmosphere and attentive friendly service. Could not ask for more!
One our guests was gluten free. She was disappointed there were no dessert option for her. Otherwise it was fantastic!
Great dinner I will certainly be back and become a regular every time I’m in Philadelphia. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Splendid birthday celebration! Exceptional food, grand decor and impressive service (Gianna was remarkable). We all enjoyed our dining experience from cocktails thru dessert.
The Saloon never disappoints! Excellent, old world Italian dishes and continental cuisine. Varied menu... something for all tastes. Fresh fish, steaks, pastas and more. I had the Lobster Francaise. Yum.... Yum. Hannah was our server that evening. What a great job!! Many thanks! We'll be back, soon!
Very accommodating. Quick and friendly service. They have Parking! Deserts are a must! Many specials.
