Sips never disappoints. We went on a Sunday when it's BYOB and no corkage fee! The food is always fresh and tastes great. Service is attentive and friendly. The dining room is a romantic setting. And it helps that they have their own parking lot so you don't have to search through town for a spot. The Escargots are always a hit for me. The Thai Curry mussels were very tasty, without being overly spicy.

Had a wonderful Valentine's dinner here tonight - we were lucky enough to get a last minute reservation on one of the busiest nights of the year and it was fantastic. Escargot and fried brussels sprouts were already amazing as apps, but that beef bouginon was beyond delicious. Staff were courteous, amicable, and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend and as first timers, will no doubt be returning ourselves.

Sips is a lovely restaurant with great, attentive service. The food is very good, with a great brunch selection. I eaten here for full dinner, sitting at the bar eating bar food and for Sunday brunch... never disappointed.

The bar area is nice and cozy but the Dining room needs a make-over. Our waitress was very friendly. I ordered the butternut squash goat cheese ravioli. The menu described it as Boeing præparer with mushrooms, leeks and parmesan cheese. My dish had frozen mixed vegetables ( peas & carrots) all over the ravioli. There wasn’t any mushrooms or leeks. Not only did it look unapeeling, it tasted linke frozen veggies, so I sent it back.
When in doubt, ordre a burger. The burger was fine.

I reel the proces Sips charges are too much for the atmosphere and location. I frequently dine at Parc in the city and the proces are basically the same. Parc NOT only has great food and service but the resturaunt is beautiful.
Sips doesn’t hold a candle and should not charge the same prices.

First date was the purpose of the visit. It was a an excellent meal. the service was exceptional. The first table at which we were seated was wobbly and the staff tried everything to help us fix the situation then just moved us. I really enjoyed the food, as authentic as I recall it from having lived in France for two years.

Sips is mine and my husband’s favorite restaurant in Phoenixville. It’s so cozy and we always have the nicest service. Michael is great and we love coming in to see him. Our favorite meal at Sips is brunch. In the summer, we enjoy sitting outside and listening to the musician while drinking bottomless mimosas! It’s the best brunch in Pville! Oh, and there’s a parking lot too :)

I went to Sips for Brunch. The staff was exceptionally accommodating and polite and the food was very good and presented well. Parking was a little difficult since the 2 overflow parking lots were not clearly marked for Sips' patrons. Sips should consider a valet parking option on busy days. I recommend making a reservation if you are planning to dine at Sips. Overall a very pleasant dining experience.

Brunch Food & waitress were good, but the noise level was awful! (To the restaurants defense) there was a loud 10 people party seated behind us & our table of 4 could NOT hear each other across own table! Sound absorbers are NEEDED! We asked to be moved but said could not (although they had tables open).

Decided to give it a try Christmas eve with some girl friends. What a great choice, we were greeted at the door by Michael telling him we were there for the Bloody Mary's and high expectations. We were seated and attended to by a very friendly staff that provided the correct amount of interaction and banter. The food was great and portions were NOT typically french, they were generous. And to my shock the Croque Madame was perfect, I have had many failed interpretations in the past. What a great way to spend christmas eve. thank you, we will be back!

Saturday of Christmas weekend was not busy at Sips, so we were able to enjoy time with family sharing some wonderful memories over a good meal. I had the frittata with side salad, and everyone else had the omelet with potatoes. Both were really good! We like the feel of the indoor patio, too. It was a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the season!

Two in our party were disappointed with their meal. We patronized Sips when they first opened. The French owner worked the front desk. It was great to see him checking on people in the dining room to see if all was satisfactory. Not any more. The food coming out of the kitchen now lacks the enthusiasm they had when they opened. It shows.

We have been to Sips Bistro & Bar in the summer. We were offered seasonal specials. This time the waiter did not mention anything to us. We just ordered from the menu. The butter lettuce salad was very good. The presentation of food is quite nice. The dice carrots and peas on the beef bourguigon add beautiful color to the brown beef. The dish is pretty tasty although some beef pieces are kind of tough. We were quite full so we did not try the dessert. Every Sunday is BYOB without corkage.

The seafood dishes were excellent! The flavor of the Brussels Sprout appetizer was wonderful, but they were quite oily. The ambiance of the historic building lends interest to the decor. The major downside was service. The server was unable or unwilling to answer questions about the drinks menu, and was flat-out notably wrong about a beer he served. The timing was awkward, and an empty bread basket sat on the tiny table throughout the whole meal. Not a bad experience, just odd. We wondered if they were trying to conjure Parisian aloofness; yet every server we've ever had in France was much more helpful. We probably won't be back.

Started out OK with a cocktail at the bar. Once seated, believe 4-5 different staff attended our table with maybe one making an effort to establish rapport (we only saw him once as he checked on the meal before we'd had chance to take a bite). The person that took our order was, I am assuming, an owner or the manager? It was around then I started to feel a pretentious atmosphere. Upon ordering, I felt like something different so tried a vegetarian dish of goat cheese ravioli. I got my dish and found tiny raviolis coated with an odd assortment of vegetables that seemed pea-based and no sauce I could discern. The most egregious thing was I could not even taste any goat cheese. Overall, the dish was tasteless and after eating a few raviolis, I gave up to focus on my company. When the barely touched plate was taken and I declined to take any home, you might think a place that has any style would have caught that and addressed it (I know I should have said something but chose not to). No one said a word - just took the plate and asked about dessert. In summary, I would suggest to the Bistro that if you want to project a trendy, semi pretentious attitude, you should focus on delivering knock out meals. Will not return.
