Great service and great food! Not a huge menu, but everything was delicious. They also did a great job setting up outdoor seating during COVID. Would definitely go back and recommend to people!
Lovely enclosed little area outside for dining, plenty of space between tables. Fantastic cocktails, and the duck of the day is always a good pick.
First time dining during the modified green phase. Everything was clean and there were direct instructions on how to proceed with a safe dining experience. The food was absolutely delicious and memorable.
My wife an I got to The Good King at 8:30 pm and was greeted with smiling eyes behind a mask. We sipped cocktails outside until our table was ready. We had an amazing dinner as usual, I ordered the escargot twice and sharing small talk with the Grigri family just felt nice to be among friendly faces again.
Cheers to The Good King Tavern and Le Caveau!
Dinner was delicious and the service excellent! Duck breast with figs w/ a sazerac 😊 We were seated in the patio along with 3 other tables. It was intimate and very well spaced. We viewed the online menu to avoid single use menus (available upon request).
Good King's food was a bit mixed the last few years, but it's back to being amazing! Service was attentive to the Covid situation. Will be back in short order!
Rebirth after months of quarantine could not have found a better place. As always, the choices of wine could match each course (and mood) to perfect elevation of mood!
My husband and I had a great meal at The Good King Tavern! Salads, entrees were wonderful. Great staff and fun, cool ambiance. Perfect after a wonderful time at the Convention Center for the Flower Show! We will definitely consider visiting you again!
Sweetbreads were delicious. My partner had the burger and that was yummy too. Wonderful wine selection.
Fat Tuesday was delicious and made us wish that shrimp and grits and oysters Rockefeller were part of the regular menu!
Went for the Fat Tuesday special; those cheesy shrimp and grits rival anything that Charleston has!
Our first time here. The food was very good with a select but wonderful menu. My daughter kept on commenting a day later on the flavors.
Our server was very distant. But the assistant was attentive. We asked him a question on one of the dishes and he answered wrong( which we wouldn’t have known) He came back, very apologetic and gave us the right answer.
We had z a reservation for 2. I wish we would have been given the option of the high top or the 2 tops on the back. The 2 tops on the back are on the middle of the serving entrances and blocked from the main room which seemed to have more of the atmosphere. Next time I I will request to stay in the front.
Very good restaurant experience. The steak frites were very good.
Fantastic dinner! Food and service were wonderful. Cozy, perfect for a great night out. Will definitely be back.
Overall excellent excellent!
Great vibes, very good food. A good night guaranteed, but definitely expensive for what it is - 3 people; one drink, an appetizer and a main course each = $180 with tip.
We went for lunch on Sunday so I imagine this place is louder later in the day. The room was charming and the traditional French dishes were delicious--cocktails were good too!
One of the best restaurants in Philadelphia. No complaints. Highly recommend the rotating duck special. Cocktail list is super unique as well.
Excellent grilled leek salad with an amazing pistachio dressing. Great and unique drink selection. My entree was a very tasty branzino with haricots verts and an out of this world tomato sauce. Only reason why I didnt give food 5 stars is because the potato leek salad my girlfriend ordered was overpowered a bit by the smoked salmon taste. I definitely recommend this bar/restaurant, overall!
Great new restaurant! Everything was delicious. Would recommend, would come back!
The food was out of this world with service to match
food was good but portions are very small for the price.
Enjoyed a meal at The Good King with my college student daughter after a trip to the Philadelphia Art Museum. The food is very good.
Our waitress was very attentive and had a very smooth cool style.
It would be nice if they had a bit more of a varied menu. It seemed like the choices the evening we were there were limited.
We will return in the future.
We have not been here for quite a while and we were pleasantly surprised at how good everything was. We can’t wait to go back...
The best steak frites in Philadelphia. Don’t deny yourself, get there and experience a true gem of the city.
Overall good dinner. Excellent sunchokes appetizer. Great cocktails and wine choice. Excellent service. Entrees were good. Definitely would eat here again
Start with some delicious fois gras and finish with the best burger in town. Never disappoints. One of the great spots in phila. Serving great cocktails. Now accompanied by the sister location upstairs - a wine bar. Great night out.
A good neighborhood place. The chef tries.
My new favorite restaurant!!!!! Would kill for the kale that rested under the duck.
We were looking for a cozy, delicious meal while visiting Philadelphia for the Army Navy game. Found this gem and returned one more night it was so good. Make sure to make a reservation.
This is great place.
The waitstaff was friendly, accommodating, and professional.
There’s a great bar.
The food is delicious.
Can’t wait to go back.
A great go to place.
Best Striped Bass I’ve had!
Go there for my wife’s birthday every year.
I’m usually a big fan, but the food wasn’t great this time. The ham served with the raclette tasted like stale refrigerator, and when I mentioned it to the server, his response was, “that’s strange. It’s cut fresh on Saturday.” I replied: “It’s Sunday,” and we all kind of laughed, but nothing was done to remedy the situation.
One of our citywide favorites. Food is always excellent, inventive, and reasonably priced.
I'd love to be more specific about what led to this rating, but we left when customers seated before us were served well after we placed our order. When we raised this with the manager he blamed the lengthy cooking time of the duck breast. However, no warning to the effect was made when we placed our order. So, the food at the Good King Tavern looked very good, but I couldn't say for sure. I never got mine. Many customers seemed to get good service, but I couldn't say for sure. I never had any. Few customers seemed to have little need for intervention by the manager. On this, I can comment. He was quick to blame the kitchen.
From the time we walked in to when I paid the bill the whole experience was exceptional and we can’t wait to go again the food was very impressive if I had any complaint my frites were just a tad too salty but they were so good I devoured them any way. Merci
