Seafood Unlimited Ratings and Reviews
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant where the owners are usually always present. Many specials on various days of week such as Unlimited Mussels on Monday and Tacos Tuesday. The regular menu is always offered with many great options. Try the scallops and mushrooms with rice and sauce which has been on menu for twenty five years!
Nice folks. Food good. Value fine.
Not impressed by the fact that Center City Restaurant Week ending yesterday was given as the justification for NO BREAD (how the hell were we supposed to sop up the very nice lemon-garlic-butter-caper sauce on the shrimp/gnocchi) or the 86'd sides (sure wanted that creamed spinach). I'd think a Center City Village joint on 20th could find a fix for those challenges to full service... on a Saturday... but...
Enjoyed the meal...
Seafood Unlimited is a smallish, cosy place with a bar decorated with marine life in glass tiles. They are cash only, but they have an on site atm. On the plus side, they allow you to bring your own wine at no charge.
It was Philly Restaurant Week so there was a limited fixed price menu. We ordered salmon (nicely done with a hoisin glaze) and shrimp over orrichette: delicious.
They have a nice selection of both wined and cocktails. I had a blood orange rye old fashioned that was nicely crafted.
Our server was polite but a little perfunctory: no biggie. The small, narrow space was busy but not noisy even at capacity.
Worth a visit!
When we can order from the full menu, I expect to be able to give them 5 stars.
This was a real find, my husband and went here on Friday for Restaurant week. The ambience is very nice. It's not a huge place and it can get a little noisy but if you don't mind that, then you will be fine. We had the opportunity to meet the owners while we were there, a very nice surprise. The food was tasty we did not have to add any seasoning what so ever. The drinks were delicious, we will definitely return.
Super cute and quaint restaurant. They’re menu was very small and limited but overall I really enjoyed it. I don’t remember our dishes exactly but they we extremely good. They had a pasta dish that was to die for, corn/crab chowder, and a lettuce wrap. I will definitely be back for take out.
Unlimited Mussels every Monday with three sauces!
Always delicious and best value in town but they have so much more on extensive menu and everything is fresh and well prepared. Great family run business and owners are friendly and always around to insure all goes well.
This weekend was my second visit to your restaurant. I enjoyed your little cosy restaurant along with the beautifully garnish dishes. Each time the meal was tasty and well prepared. Although the portions could have been a little larger ( i am a big guy ). The only complaint I have is on my last visit I had the lobster and it was served split down the middle with the guts still on the lobster in sight. I didn't care for the visional. I looked past it. But if my girlfriend have been there it would have gross her out. She was supposed to be there but couldn't make it at the last minute. Maybe you should warned people about how it's served. Maybe I might be ignorant to serving a lobster but that just my opinion. Other wise everything else who excellent .
The food was delicious, and the recommendations of the server were helpful. We were thrilled to be able to secure a reservation at the last minute. The only downside was that our table was located at the back of the restaurant next to the kitchen. I imagine that being seated near the front window would have slightly improved the experience. Overall, we enjoyed the meal and would definitely return the next time we are in town.
The food was excellent and reasonably priced, and the service was outstanding. We sat for quite a while chatting before looking at the menu, and the server never once rushed us. Everything was excellent, except for the very noisy table behind me that arrived (fortunately) when we were up to dessert. Restaurants should have a nice way to tell people not to yell while in a restaurant!
The food was good and innovative. The staff very welcoming. Our evening enjoyment was marred by an extremely exuberant table of women who were loud. Quite loud. And unfortunately the sound echoed
Our server apologized as the other 3 tables made a hasty retreat.
I would go back. And if I had similar encounter ask for take out!!!
Our third time here and the food was as good as ever. We were a group of 6. Service lagged a few times, but was not bad. We were seated near the servers station outside the kitchen and there was a bit of distraction from the conversations between wait staff and the kitchen. This issue would not stop me from returning.
