We went primarily for the jazz and the drinks, but were so happily surprised with the food! The brisket was delicious as was the grilled octopus. And even with jazz we were able to have a solid conversation with new friends. A great night at Time all around.

The room was great aesthetically. Nice ambiance, chic, cool. The food was mediocre at best. And the cheese tray was literally 3 small chunks of cheese and a cut in half strawberry. Kind of expected a charcuterie spread. The prices are high for the food you get. Ended up at 175 for 2 of us with meals and a bottle of inexpensive wine.

A good friend ended up moving back into town and was looking to spend her birthday at a live music food joint. After searching up a couple of spots, South included. I ended up choosing this place. Went in on a Sunday night and we all were impressed with the ambiance and the jazz band that played that night. Food and cocktails were also noteworthy. Definitely recommend for a date night or a place to enjoy good jazz with food and drinks.

Enjoyed my visit. The live music and ambiance was great however it was very dark which made reading the menu and eating a challenge. I ordered the duck plate for dinner which came out at a medium temperature. I took off a star because the server or menu didn't mention that or ask my preference. The service was slow but it was also very crowded and busy since it was on a Saturday night. I would just plan on having drinks after a certain hour next time.

We came to hear a band and left with a new favorite restaurant. The drink program is incredible. I couldn't ask for a better list of boozy bourbon cocktail options. The food could have a bit more seasoning but other than that, it was a fantastic culinary experience from start to finish.

My wife and I spent a weekend in Philly and we typically hang out around 13th St and Locust/Sansome. We decided to give Time a chance based on the reviews, but looking at the pictures of the place, we were not expecting much.

Boy were we wrong! We decided to give the 5 course tasting menu a try. OMG, best dinner we've ever had in Philly and we've been visiting for years. They started us off with a flaky puff pastry filled with a creamy mushroom sauce. It was delicious! Next was a potato leek soup topped with flame grilled sea bass. Yum! We then were served a house-made pasta dish. And finally, tender slivers of waygu filet mignon on a bed of crispy fried rice. Amazing! Dessert was a delicious chocolate tart with homemade whipped cream.

There was a live jazz guitarist playing to a crooning singer with a bongo, and they were really terrific.

Overall, highly recommended!

We were seated at 6:45 but did not receive service until about 7 pm. Our server was also the bartender, which made for choppy service. While the food here is FANTASTIC, it was WAY overpriced for the portions given. My boyfriend wanted the sweet potato gnocchi entree, which they were out of and offered the Parmesan gnocchi for an upcharge of $7. I feel like that entree was actually an appetizer- 8-10 gnocchis dispersed around a rather large plate.. not very filling. We had also ordered an appetizer and two entrees, and they all came out of order. Between each dish we waited about 20 minutes. So we had an “entree” then our appetizer, then we had to split my entree because my boyfriend was not full from his entree that was an appetizer. Overall, the food was delicious, but I don’t know that I would eat here again due to the service. We did not leave the restaurant until 9 pm. I understand restaurants get busy, but perhaps more servers would have made things better for everyone.

I really enjoyed our Valentine’s Day dinner date here. The food was of decent portions and excellent quality. I also really enjoyed the crate e cocktails and music. I ordered the tea time in Jalisco and was not disappointed. I also had the salmon and really enjoyed it. Would definitely come here again!

I really enjoyed Time! I went with a group of friends for Restaurant Week, so we got to taste several different things. The menu included 5 courses, but all the courses were portioned right so it didn't feel super heavy or overly indulgent at the end of the night. The broccoli and cheddar risotto was great, as was the 48-hour braised short rib.
There was a jazz duo (bass and sax) playing live music which contributed to the great atmosphere, and the service was top notch. Overall, I would recommend this place.

Always great jazz and martinis. Food is very good with a nice variety. Staff is pleasant. Go early if you want a seat at the bar as it does get crowded, or make a reservation for dinner. We do not live in Philadelphia but a few of the bartenders remember us and greet us warmly when we are there ... it's nice to be remembered and acknowledged.

We had a lovely New Year's Eve dinner at Time. I was running late due to holiday traffic/street closures, and I really appreciated their ability to accommodate us arriving nearly 30 minutes late! The food & service were outstanding, and my two cocktails were fairly priced and delicious. I would definitely return.
