Oh thank you so much to my friend Chris (server) and Lateyfah (bartender) for introducing this place to me😊😊 it’s a tradition for my boyfriend and I to celebrate our anniversary here every year ❤️❤️ food is amazing and service with a smile. Everyone is very professional and welcoming.
Vernick is incredible - the kind of place where you enjoy every single bite, not matter what you order. We wanted everything on the menu! Go to Vernick, you won't regret it!
I have been to Vernick several times, with my past visits being exceptional! This past visit the toast and small plates were also excellent. The wait time between the courses seemed very long. The wait staff was excellent and knew the menu perfectly. Unfortunately the dessert was horrible, apple cake with sweet crunchy things that tasted like Captain Crunch. It was too sweet and unimpressive.
My husband (a chef) and I are very picky. We loved our meal at Vernick. A must try for anyone looking for amazing food in Philly.
Birthday. Chef and manager were great!
The food was very good; a lot of attention to detail in every respect with the meal, sauces, presentation, were all spot on, although we thought the menu was somewhat limited. Pumpkin with brown butter sauce was was simple but tasty. Halibut was outstanding. Apple cake was good. However, we felt the noise level was way too high and we were crammed between two other tables. It was the holidays, so that could account for both issues. Our waiter gave us a great wine recommendation, but seemed somewhat annoyed when asked to explain preparation of a few dishes, which led us to feel there was a sense of elitism--that we were lucky to be there versus they were happy to have us. Again, maybe crowded holiday season contributed to our issues with atmosphere.
I was actually looking forward to the reservation and have been wanting to go there for the past two years. It did not live up to the hype and we were actually all disappointed in terms of the service being very slow and to top it all off it should not take 15 minutes to get water on the table.
Exceptional food and some of the best high end yet not pretentious service around. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and look forward to returning.
All the food was amazing, and the service was attentive without being overbearing. Strongly recommend the romaine, the venison, and all the toast.
SUPER! The food was simply amazing, there were at least three now favorite small plates served. Our waiter was just right also— friendly, professional, but gave us space. Can’t wait to go back.
