My boyfriend and I ate here on a weekend away in Philly, I was extremely impressed. The food was incredible, in fact one of the best meals I have had in the past year and the service was great! The Scallops were to die for! Definitely recommend this for a nice romantic night out

Valentine’s Day dinner and first time we went. Menu was chefs tasting and fantastic. A little pricey at $95 pp plus a $75 pp wine pairing but it was a special occasion. Probably won’t be a frequent choice because of cost and all courses but our server was absolutely awesome.

You went from favorite to never again in one meal. Overpriced and terrible portions. No crab in the “lump “ crab risotto. A silver dollar sized portion of fat for wavy beef. Too many good places in Philadelphia to waste money here. Thanks for ruining our special occasion dinner

nice restaurant- I have been many times. Menu seems much more limited than I remember. No salad options. Portions pretty small for the price. Food was good, although not memorable. Service and atmosphere excellent. No longer a standout in my opinion
