We love the Good King! We always feel welcomed and the food is always outstanding. I typically eat too much and don't have room for dessert. I can't resist the socca appetizer and it's seasonally a little different every time (love that). I had the endive salad and I'm still thinking about it 2 days later - hard to do endive right! My date loved the confit and I wish we'd had room for the chocolate cake! Also, the specialty cocktails are always a treat. Glorious!

One of the absolute best restaurants in the city! I was hesitant to leave this review - because I don’t want too many people to come and make it harder to get a reservation!

But this place has the most delicious eclectic food. It’s small, intimate, and the menu is so well thought out. It’s not that cheap, but worth every penny.

The service is impeccable - the servers are lovely and very knowledgeable. I love this place - I would go all the time if I could!

Warm and friendly with great cocktails and a menu that brought me back to a Parisian bistro. Can't wait to go back and try more of the menu.

From the craft cocktails to the chocolate creme brûlée, our experience was delightful. The servers were attentive and knowledgeable, the food delicious and the soundtrack spot-on. We will look forward to our next visit.

Very Good but not great food. Several items were very oversalted. Very fun atmosphere.

The Good King restaurant is my best find in a long time!
Atmosphere is so warm and welcoming! The food was truly amazing! I had their onion soup and lamb stew which were specials of the night. Both were done with mouth watering blended flavors that took away the winter chill! Well done!

Monkfish was tough. Chickpea pancakes were great. Wine prices are ridiculous, but this seems to be true in all PHL restaurants.

The food was very good and service was excellent but we will not return as the noise level was too loud to have a conversation. We did not find it a relaxing dinner

Has been one of my favorite restaurants for years, and did not disappoint for my 30th birthday dinner with family. I decided to move the reservation up a bit to accommodate their closure for a private party, and they were so appreciative, they greeted us with complimentary champagne! Food was delicious, as always. Service was spectacular, and they treated us so well all throughout the entire meal. The wine that 4 of us had was great, and the cocktails & whiskey another had were phenomenal. I will continue to sing the praises of The Good King Tavern, and be back!
