    Tried the Tuesday special, "surf and turf". Lobster and thin steak were mediocre, fries too salty. Drinks were tasty and service was good, but would not return.

    We ate outside which was very nice overlooking the park without any traffic except for an ambulance and a motorcycle that came by. French fries are equivalent to like three potatoes with the hamburgers so be careful. Pizza was good. It was a nice night and a nice place to have dinner.

    My wife’s food was good, but dishes that I ordered were lacking. Duck wings were overfried and tough. Curry dish had generous portion size but not much flavor. Probably better not to order the Asian-influenced dishes and stick to more mainstream fare here.

    Seated quickly for Sunday brunch about fifteen minutes early ahead of our reservation. Quiet table near the front was perfect for conversation and catching up. Ample selection of brunch and lunch menu items. The fried chicken special for two was perfect for my two guests as I enjoyed an omelette with sides of potatoes and fresh fruit. Helpful staff provided directions to the restrooms on the second floor above the dining area. All in all, the perfect brunch location after church nearby.

    Square 1682 provided an exceptionally satisfying pre-concert dining experience. My wife's ahi tuna dish and my steak and lobster entree were both prepared perfectly. And save room for the amazing banana pudding dessert. It's an "energetic" venue, not your place for a quiet romantic evening, but among the best in the city for a delicious meal with excellent service.

    The waitress took a while to greet us, and I asked for the steak and eggs to be medium, however when it came to me, the steak was well done. She also took a while to check in on us after the food came, and I told her about the steak. I watched the chef throw the plate across the divider for her to pick up after he redid my plate.

    One of my taxi drivers mentioned the cocktails at The Kimpton and he was not wrong!! Alex is one of the best bartenders I have ever encountered!! The drinks are off the chart!! I love a good cocktail and Alex delivers. It’s like an art, each drink is so creative. I cannot wait to come back and stay just based on this. Oh yeah the food was amazing, I went out my second night I. Philly, looking for a new restaurant and ended back here. The cocktails, food and vibe are perfect for business travelers or anyone for that matter,

    This a bar next to/part of the Kimpton Hotel Palomar. I was there for lunch and then a drink at 6. The place was pretty empty both times,so it was depressing. The food is okay not good. The prices seem right. Two very hospitable waitresses.

    Food was good and service was excellent. We mentioned that this was the first time we had been back since before the pandemic. Several times over the course of the evening, staff thanked us for coming back. Cornbread appetizer was delightful. Cocktails great also. Thank you for a lovely dinner back in the city after two years.

    The cornbread is the most glorious thing on the menu. Make sure you get the duck wings because they are very juicy and well-spiced. Everything is amazing on this menu. I have been a few times, and even when things change, they are still so delicious. There is adequate variety for different diet needs! Bonus for Chef Mac who always gives a personal touch by explaining parts of the menu!

    Enjoyed a wonderful night out celebrating my wife's birthday... from the excellent service (thank you, Angela!), to the ambiance, to the delicious meal and spirits. We enjoyed the skillet brie and the crab dip (though not as tasty as what we've had in Maryland), to our mail courses (delightful Ahi Tuna and a couple surf and turfs... lobster was perfect though wishing the steaks were a bit bigger), to wonderful desserts (the dulce was the big hit among the table, followed by the sorbet). Would definitely recommend to others.
