Lovely brunch and look forward to going back!
Had a lovely experience at the Dandelion! We enjoyed a beautiful meal and cocktails . Our server was extremely attentive and very friendly . The area we were sat in was a little loud due to be close to the bar but we still enjoyed our meal! After the meal the staff brought a little hazelnut chocolate ice cream out for my husbands birthday. It was a lovely little way to end the night. Thanks guys!
Excellent. My only critique is that we had at least 4 different servers coming round to try to clear our plates. We were slow eaters, and enjoying drinks and convo, but they seemed intent on moving us out. But the food, drinks and overall vibe are great!
Great fish and chips. Our server recommended the salmon and trout pate. It was delicious. Great service!
My first time here. Really good food and great service . It’s lively and fun inside .
2nd time here. Better than the first! Burger is absolutely amazing! Fish and chips also delicious! Awesome atmosphere and very reasonable prices for the city!
Perfect afternoon tea. Amazing scones.
Nice place, good food and great service. The music selection is awful it would have been so much better with a playlist that matched the vibe.
All around great experience. Waitstaff was knowledgeable and friendly without being annoying. Food was delicious. Definitely will go again.
Brunch with friends. Service was friendly, helpful and efficient. We loved the ambience with lovely antiques, fireplace etc. Food was delicious. We had eggs Benedict, omelette, English breakfast and brioche French toast and all were enjoyed. The French toast was particularly good, surprisingly light for the size of it. Rose mimosas were the crowning glory!
Busy Pub with good food.
Seems like they have lost some of the warmth and care for the customer as they have gotten busier.
We enjoyed the afternoon tea. The desserts and scones were excellent. The sandwiches were tasty, but lacked on the amount (very thin) & bread got stale like kind of fast. Overall, though, the service was great. We tried the rosemary nuts too and they were delicious!
Fantastic meal. Food was excellent, service generally great- once we were seated the food was served promptly and it's one of the better values in Philly. Let down only a little by the fact that we waited ten minutes past our reservation to be seated, but on a busy Friday night I can't be too mad.
As a Brit living in the US, I often find British style pubs too kitschy but The Dandelion gets the balance just right. The food was tasty and the ambiance was great. My only issue was the cask ale was very expensive and tasted like the pipes were not well maintained.
Great lunch. Delicious salads and main courses.
The service was impeccable. Not at all overbearing but very attentive. We were seated a few minutes late but were given a free appetizer which we really appreciated. The food was SO good, and we love the various different rooms—all unique. We will make this a holiday tradition.
Rock and roll with high tea is a bad combination.
It is always a pleasure to visit the Dandelion because of the rain my friend and I arrived earlier than expected but they couldn't have been nicer in accommodating our early arrival.
Food and ambience great.
My group will return again. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Our waitress was not overly friendly and didn’t refresh my tea.....just very unenthusiastic about her job that afternoon. The food, as always, was excellent.
My mother and I came in for Sunday brunch. We come here frequently and it’s one of our favorite restaurants. Today it was cold and rainy so we came especially for the Sunday beef special. Oh my goodness it was perfect. We had some scones to start because you should always have desert first! And they were also delicious, the pumpkin scones were just the best fall treat. But the beef, the beef was mmmm just so good. It was cooked perfectly. Rich and juicy and THICK. The gravy was phenomenal and the Yorkshire pudding was airy and just right and the carrots were crisp and perfectly caramelices. Our server was delightful, so friendly and knowledgeable. Another great experience. Can’t wait until our next brunch here!
The waiter was great. My mom has a limited diet and he accommodated her with such ease. Food was delish.
Love the atmosphere! Promptly seated with prior seating request taken into account. Excellent service! Continual monitoring by management. Delicious food with awesome recommendations from the server.
I would recommend this place for a meal, just not for the Afternoon Tea. The prices are high, the food and drinks are skimpy and the sweet to savory ratio was off, IMHO. Too many teensy sweets and not enough tea sandwiches. Also, I'd rather have more of the traditional fare than so many different items...more traditional (cucumber or chicken salad or smoked salmon) sandwiches instead of two pieces of 8 or 9 different, and not always tasty, sandwiches. Ditto for sweets. The scones and sauces were very good. Just a meh experience...
Lovely English pub, great ambiance, phenomenal rabbit pie. Foods better than any English restaurant I’ve been to in London or Cardiff!
I brought my British mother to the Dandelion the day after Thanksgiving. She's been craving bangers and mash. I ordered the Dandelion salad and my dad had the fish and chips. All the food was excellent. Everything was cooked perfectly and fresh. My salad was delicious--which is hard to achieve in a salad. There were no bruised greens, the dressing was delicious. My mom was impressed by the Bangers and Mash, the gravy which tasted like red wine was delicious. It was authentic. Delicious.
The food and the service were wonderful, but the restaurant is very small. Our part of five were placed at a four-top table with an mini-banquette seat for the 5th person. This made for a very tight table. With drinks, a tea pot, and main plates, the table was uncomfortably crowded.
Absolutely delicious, friendly staff, very good ambient, love the architectural antiques style of the dining room...
Cocktails were creative and well crafted. Food consistently outstanding, ambience extremely comfortable. Always a positive experience.
Amazing time ! Food and service was great!!!!
Wow what a special restaurant. I'd you are thinking of coming here, and you like pub style food, just do it. You will not be disappointed.
Our table was ready as soon as we arrived and we were seated in a cute alcove area. Our waitress Katherine was great and knowledgable about the menu. The food arrived so quickly and was great. We are from Scotland and ordered all the classics on the menu. My phone is hard to please but she loved it all! We will definitely be back.
We went for the roast beef/Yorkshire pudding dinner. It was very good. The Yorkshire pudding was the popover type and thigh good, I prefer the way I make it (whole pan). Next time I will order medium rare - the server suggested medium for an even pink, which it was. My wife thought it was perfect but for me, while good, I think a bit under that would be better. Not a complaint at all, just setting the stage for anyone who goes. Roasted vegetables were very tasty as was the watercress salad. Bread was also excellent.
Best hamburger I’ve had in a long time - a little pricey but so delicious !!!
We brought our UK friends to experience our favorite local restaurant and bar. Good food and great service—rabbit pie, mussels and fish and chips Also great cocktails!
We arrived early but they were not able to have us until ur time. We wanted to have a cocktail at the bar while we waited, but it was extremely crowed and uncomfortable, so we left and found a wonderfuly enjoyable place called Rouge, and they were able to accomodate us for our cocktail. Then we returned to Dandelion for an interesting arrray of snall plates. some were tastey, others bland. we had many servers that night as is was extrememly bussy there. Sorry they lost our cocktail business. Will try Rouge for dinner next time.
Fabulous food, ambiance, service and quality. Would go again in a heartbeat.
Great atmosphere and food.
Our tea time was great. We had a variety of tiers including savory and sweet. There’s a kids menu with grilled cheese and pb&j sandwiches as well. The overall ambiance was of an old English pub with woody decor high ceilings, etc. Also-great options for those who wished to not have tea. A definite must. A+
Our dinner was very good. The food was brought in a timely manor. The ambiance was warm and cozy and welcoming. The only glitch with the night was, we had cappuccino at end and waitress began to move anything she could off of our table, brought the bill and kept asking if we needed anything else, or were we finished? Rushing us out. It felt uncomfortable and was disappointing because the night was perfect until then.
