Good king never disappoints. Amazing food, wine list, service, and ambiance (even with only outdoor seating!)
Every bit of our meal was outstanding! The Good King Tavern does French food right. Our waitress gave us great recommendations for aperitifs that paired well with our desserts too. 10/5 stars!!
European oasis just off South Street. Old and young. Wine and beer. Perfect any time of year,
Food is excellent, quiet little street for outside dining. Service was outstanding.
AMAZING!! Food & service
My favorite French Bistro in the city. Can not go wrong with the escargot, duck and sun-choakes.
The steak frites was AMAZING! The sauce was delicious and I wish I could've taken a bottle of it home with me.
Great service, phenomal steak frites. This place rocks
This restaurant is outstanding. Everybody in Philly should go, and everybody in NYC should travel to Philly to visit the wonderful city and dine here too!
Best restaurant in our neighborhood and likely in the city. The food is outstanding every single time. The mixed drinks are to die for.
Had a great meal, tables were spaced out and staff was helpful. Food was terrific as always. We had a great evening.
Great spot. Just a bit disappointed that the cheese came with no pairings.
First time there. We ordered Salmon Rillette, mussels, green salad, steak tartar, pomme frit, and duck. The food was uniformly excellent. Service was a bit slow in terms of course delivery but attentive. They do not charge for house sparkling water. My only complaint was the amazingly aggressive wine prices. A bottle of Vinho Verde was on offer for nearly $60. It is impossible to pay more than $10 for Vinho Verde at any store. 6X over retail is past my tolerance. The lowest cost white on the list was $42 plus 10% tax from PA. While good, it was also seriously overpriced. While the food was uniformly delicious, I would only recommend this establishment to those not interested in wine consumption with their meal.
Great place overall! The food is amazing - the menu is small but everything on their menu is a winner! The food definitely has it's own twist on French food that I wasn't familiar with, adding lots of pesto-like sauces to dishes. The table olives are great - don't skip them!
Good social distancing. Menu read true. Gem.
Best duck breast that I’ve had in a long time. Did a nice job with the outdoor dining area
A neighborhood gem of Philadelphia
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.
