Very inventive food and incredible service - the courses are very well paced and I cannot say enough about the flavor combinations!
I had dinner with my son, his girlfriend and my husband. Service was impeccable, food was delicious and so inventive. Our whole 2+ hour experience was amazing. Should be ranked #1 in Philadelphia magazine’s top restaurants.
Service slow. Food not great
Absolutely first-rate and interesting. The artichoke soup was beautiful (though it could have been served hotter): beautiful texture and flavor, with small bits of chestnut in it, and with a chive oil on top of an intense color. (Supposedly chive; it didn't taste of chive; instead, there was a rosemary taste.) There's a Chinese vibe to many of the dishes, such as the fried cauliflower with shrimp, where the shrimp is like the shrimp stuffing in Chinese restaurants and the short rib of beef is like beef with broccoli. That was a hit with the table, though I found it a little too obvious and I found the broccoli meh. I preferred the prochetta - unlike the rest of the table. I liked the crispy skin and the pork belly itself was much less fatty than I'd feared. The broccoli here was more interesting. (Yes, the server should have told us we'd have two dishes with broccoli.) Part of what is so interesting is the layering of tastes. I also really liked Friday Saturday Sunday.
This was our second time dining at serpico and, as before, we sat at the counter by the chefs. The chefs are so nice about answering questions on what they’re working on while busy preparing the food. For us that’s a big part of the experience.
Again the food was fabulous. I wish they would offer a mirror to see the server who stands behind you! I know it sounds silly but it’s quite hard to order or talk to the server when they stand directly behind you.
This visit there must have been a mixup with our order because the waiter realized ,
After a 30 minute wait, that we had not received our entree. An apology would have been nice.
Overall it’s a good dining experience
Very attentive service, good food - standout was the fried cauliflower, and the special for the night - scallops and shrimps with crispy sunchokes on lobster bouillabaisse.
Each item we ordered was great. I'm a vegetarian, and had plenty to choose from. My husband had the short ribs and loved it. Don't miss dessert -- the sweet potato dessert sounded "meh" in its description but was, in fact, fantastic.
Excellent all around, menu may not be for everyone as some selections are a bit unusual but it’s all delicious, just need to be a bit adventurous with a few of the menu choices
Get the duck and lasagna.
Great experience for a date night. Sitting at the kitchen counter was neat.
