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!
Fresh and innovative food. Comfortable ambience. I would highly recommend. BYOB if you choose. Cash Only
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!!!
Friendly staff and delicious food. We were given time to enjoy a glass of fine, no pressure ordering and timely service of all three courses.
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.
Small, quiet restaurant near Rittenhouse Square. Difficult parking, as with all downtown places, but the seafood was prepared very well. Cash only is the only real negative. Will definitely go back!
All four Seafood dishes were delicious.
Food was pretty good and fast service. As soon as I fin
Everything was delightful and well serviced except for the rolls they served prior to the meal being disturbed. I don’t know if they were sitting all day or what but the pre-meal rolls were hard as a rock. Besides that everything was great.
I look my girlfriend here and she loved it.
Big thanks to the owner David for everything that he does.
You are truly appraciated
Dinner was really good. The other half is still talking about it.
We went for restaurant week and enjoyed the menu. Waiter was entertaining and friendly. Sat outside and people watched. Wonderful dinner experience! Highly recommend.
My food was good and my waiter was very attentive up until the point my water needed a refill. Still gave an 20% tip.
This is one of my favorite Rittenhouse square Restaurants.When I don't bring my own wine I enjoy one of their excellent cocktails.
The food is great. Especially the Shrimp Cocktail(get it with spicy remoulade sauce) raw oysters and clams.The other night I had Sea Bass with a Falafel crust.Very good with the Middle Eastern touch. Save the best for last.Hard choice. the chocolate mousse or the carrot cake. BYOB also makes for a good buy
My family wasn't at all impressed.
We had a 7 o'clock reservation, we arrived almost 10 minutes late (parking was horrific) and the table still wasn't ready, so we waited outside a few minutes. When the hostess did say our table was ready, we all (seven of us) came in, but no one said anything else. My grandmother ended up asking "Well where should we go?" A waiter said "oh you can go straight back to the left." That was a little off putting but ok... We have a seat, we are given menus, we place our orders. The waiters were pretty cool. But I (along with my family) wasn't at all thrilled about the food. The. Lam chowder that three of them got was prettt thin a little flavorless. The quesadilla came out super burnt on the bottom, with very little meat & cheese inside. My sister ordered calamari that came out as mostly scraps, and also lacking flavor. I had a shrimp & tortilla appetizer that was really good. My moms entree ended up being taken off the bill because the scallops were super rubbery. My sister (who normally eats anything!) barely ate her crab cake dinner. My boyfriend overall enjoyed his meal but was a little upset that what was supposed to be a "bourbon glazed salmon" really just tasted like salmon with a little maple syrup. I enjoyed my meal of chicken & risotto. But over all we really weren't impressed with the quality and flavor of the food.. Mot really worth the hassle of center city traffic and parking..
Our waiter was very inexperienced. We sat for a while before he greeted us and he was just standing around before that. We had to ask him to pick up our drinks from the bar as they were waiting there. The raw oysters and clams were good. We ordered the scallops and they were very overcooked- to the point of being tough. The waiter didn't ask if we wanted desert. He just brought the check. Also, it's cash only so be prepared.
The waiter was a moron. His own coworker did not know where he was. We ordered house margarita/ he said we can only that at the bar/ then we ordered the flavored/ and he brought the house margarita to the table saying we could have this instead. Then we literally sat for 30 mins waiting for him to take the order for the table. Then another 30mins for a glass of wine. BIGGEST ISSUE was halfway through my glass of water, I found scum inside the glass with floaters!!!! OH WAIT, forgot to mention the waiter kept rubbing his nose with his hands, never washed them and when I asked for a straw he grasped it with his entire hand and inserted it in my glass!!! OMG- I Called the manager over, she apologized but never brought a new glass of water, I saw her frantically washing the other glasses by hand. Our food came came out like train cars... back to back to back and was room temperature. No offer to take anything off the bill. No apology from the waiter. The waiter lied said he couldn't split our bill because the machine was broken, I called the manager and she did it with no problem. LIAR LIAR. Overall, not a place I would recommend nor would I return under any circumstance. Mind you I like dining out, this place was subpar to say the least.
The food was overcooked.
This restaurant is one of our regular go-tos. Comfortable, friendly owners and staff, and great other customers. Healthy - and interesting - food! Pleasant at the bar or at a table. Great neighborhood restaurant.
Never disappointed at the quality of seafood. Clams on the half..chilled and briny and so reasonably priced. Soft shell crabs were simply the best!!!
Good food, sizable portions, varied seafood and fish options, very cordial and attentive service.
Seafood Unlimited never disappoints - eating in or taking out. Management and service people are outstanding.
What is most telling is that we were the only customers in the restaurant on a Saturday night when all of the other restaurants were hopping. The food was mediocre and the service abysmal. The staff sat around complaining about their jobs and lives. Won't be going back.
Can't say enough about this place. The food was incredible and the staff are super friendly and helpful. I had the best New England clam chowder I have ever had. And I've had a lot of clam chowder. My waitress suggested the soft shell crab since they are in season; and I am beyond happy that I took her reco. They had run out of the risotto, so they subbed in this amazing garlicky rice. Everything was amazing. Everyone come here!!!!
Buffalo shrimp and mussels both excellent. Friendly servers.
Wonderful food, fine server, excellent value. Will return soon.
Very good food and service.
Dined alone at the bar. Chatted with another guest. A half dozen raw oysters, 6 fried Buffalo Shrimp, and a Lobster- washed down with 2 Then going drafts. What's not to like? Delicious, as always.
Their swordfish is always perfectly cooked and tasty. This time it had a miso glaze. I didn't think it could be improved but this version was outstanding. I dine here frequently and usual order the specials which are consistently excellent. Even the vegetables are delicious.
Seafood unlimited has specials every night that makes it best bargain in the city. Had the lobster dinner, 1 1/4 lb, plus sides for $20.00.
Warm atmosphere, neighborhood crowd.
First time here...food and drinks were good!
One of my favs. I go here at least 3-5 a year. love the byob allows you to order more food and not spend a fortune on drinks
This is an odd restaurant for the 20th & Spruce area. It specializes in seafood (the building was once a fish store) but either the ingredients or the chef results in dishes that do not make one think of fresh fish but rather the cooking style of Margate 1963. The servers are friendly enough but dispatch plates on the table as if they are in a neighborhood diner. No wonder this place was only half full on an evening when nearby restaurants had their tables full. It needs to up its game for the Ritt-Fit area.
The food wasn't very flavorful. It was bland. The flavor profile didn't have depth. The staff were very nice and the decor was fun.
Fresh fish, prepared perfectly, priced reasonably and presented enticingly. Very nice staff and service. Hadn't been there for around 10 years... we were happy to return and find it so good!
Fresh seafood prepared correctly and presented attractively. Service was attentive and friendly. Wholeheartedly recommend. Small unpretentious space but not crowded together. Remember to bring Cash as credit cards are not accepted.
The food was very good and the service was great, they were very very accommodating to all of our requests
Best softshell crabs! Also excellent margaritas. Owners and staff go out of their way to be helpful and friendly.
As always, wonderful food at great value. Lobster dinner for $20 is a total bargain and delicious. Service is smooth and gracious under the watchful eye of Dave. This is our go to place.
