The service was great and food was delicious. They gave us a complimentary appetizer when the one we wanted was not available. Will definitely go back!

As a Kimpton Inner Circle loyalist we always love popping in to Square for brunch \ cocktails. The food and bits are always worth the time, and the cocktail program is a hidden gem in the city most people over look. Worth the stop.

Food was not worth the price. Frittata was bland, no contrast of flavor. The stuffed popovers did not taste fresh and the filling was not warm, just cold shredded cheese and lukewarm bacon. The duck wings and waffles were also a disappointment. Wings were too sweet, not enough spice. Waffle was bready, not fluffy. Server was nice, but not very attentive. Had to flag her down for every coffee or water refill or if we needed anything and since it was not busy, she wasn’t out on the floor much. Overall, a disappointing and overpriced brunch

This was our second meal at square 1682, and it was as good as we remembered it. Tasty and inventive food. Friendly service. The mushroom appetizer and the whole fish were especially memorable. We will be back.

Wasted a large OpenTable rewards credit on this place. Food mediocre at best. Place was pretty empty but service was slow. A refill $13 (!) drink took forever to get to the table. Server didn't bring service utensils for shared food. One side dish wasn't even put in for order and arrived when we were just about done with the meal. At least that was the only half-way good dish - with the first few bites. Then it became very one note. And expensive! Had a $110 rewards and for 3 we still had to pay $88 and add the 20% tip on the full amount and we could have had a first rate dinner at one of many other Philly restaurants! We were standing outside after dinner and people came up and looked at the menu in the window. One of my party said Not worth it. They thanked us and moved on. Wish we had had that advice.

We have enjoyed S1682 over the years and through three chefs (that we know of). The food continues to be well conceived and well prepared. Tasty duck wings to share, followed by bone marrow raviolo. The whole fish is an impressive display, as was the surf and turf. We like the room, even if it gets a bit loud with the bar crowd. We were very surprised to see the place so empty on a Friday night. It is still a great place to eat.

Had Sunday breakfast/brunch there - so many good choices on the menu, it was hard to pick! Spouse had the peach french toast; I had the ricotta blueberry pancakes with lemon zest. Both were amazing! Service was attentive without being hovering.

Great restaurant connected to the hotel next door, however the front street entrance is easy to miss from the sidewalk. Reasonable size menu with great appetizers and entrees (like bone marrow ravioli!) at very reasonable prices. Nice, quiet atmosphere which was conducive to 4 of us having a business dinner and discussion.

Consider it a hidden gem as it has great food at low prices and was quiet and not crowded. The only thing missing are some nice selections of draft beer (although they have a fine selection of bottles).

We had a great experience at Square 1682! The food was excellent (get the rigatoni!) and the drinks were delish. We would have like a little more attention from our server. We could have used more drinks and dessert but it took a while for her to get back to us.

Made a reservation and still got seated in the lounge area by the front door. The food was very good and the server was excellent. Low marks are because of the VERY disappointing experience with the table. I expect better when I make a reservation that I keep on time.
