We enjoyed our meal very much. The food and service were great. Wine by the glass a bit pricey but other than that it was a very good experience.

Made reservations here for dinner with a work group. Food was decent, environment was a little strange. It was pretty empty for a Monday evening, and they sat us back near the kitchen. It was loud and odd to watch the chefs/cooks be a little silly and not professional while preparing meals. Server was very nice and attentive! Probably would not come back though.

We enjoyed the food at this restaurant and everyone in our party was pleased with the beautiful mushroom and glazed carrots that adorned the plates. The Thai Curry Mussels that I selected were delicious and I would order them again. Two in our party had enjoyable beef ribs.
The main problem was the uncomfortable seats at the table and the noise level.
First, the seats.... when we first sat down we thought the seats were broken since we sunk down into the stools cushion. We tried several other chairs in the restaurant but the others nearby were the same.
Second, the noise level was quite high when we arrived for our 6 pm reservation and we considered leaving and going somewhere else where we could talk. Things eventually calmed down once the bar crowd started to leave but at the begining it was us shouting at one another. It was a first meet for some of us in our group and not easy to communicate.
Third, the toilet facilities are rather obscure and difficult to find. Luckily our waiter was standing near the door to the steps that we needed to take. He did offer the use of the elevator to get there to one member of our party, but not to me. It was two flights up!
George was an attentive waiter and we liked having him come around every so often to refill waters and check on is but he didn't hover.
The restaurant is connected to a hotel, Palomar, which I didn't know when I made the reservation and that might account for the busy bar scene.
All in all, there are so many good restaurants in Philadelphia, I might choose another next time, but since this is around the corner from my husbands office, he might try it for a business lunch.

Food was just okay. Would I go back? Probably not. I felt it was overpriced for what it was.

Have been here before and glad I visited again. The waiter was very friendly and accommodating. We requested the special omelette of the day with egg whites only, no problem, and also my gluten-free diet was accommodated. Delicious breakfast and good staff.

My husband got the burger with no bacon. I had a bite. I️t was delicious. I got the brie grilled cheese. Too much caramelized onion marmalade and not enough cheese. I️t should be named the caramelized marmalade sandwich with cheese and not grilled cheese. Tomato soup was delicious and the grains and greens salad was good. We were the only ones in there for lunch. Service was ok

This restaurant is the Hotel Palomar's restaurant. The TV was on with a crowd of people watching the NFL playoff game. While I understand a Philadelphia crowd wanting to see the game, it doesn't exactly signal fine dining. The food was all right, neither great nor awful. The service was pretty slow though reasonably capable.

Great brunch experience! I had the French toast - first time I’ve had it in years, delicious!! He had wheat pancakes with granola and potatoes on the side and he loved it. Only disappointment was how expensive the mimosas were with no opportunity for specials.

Sasha did her usual great job. Perfect explanations of the various food offerings and excellent recommendations. Beet salad should be an entree! Kudos to the chef for a perfect ribeye that seemed far more than 10 ounces. Food and service are excellent.
