My Honey loves Jazz it was the perfect night his birthday wasn’t announced because the hostess didn’t even check our reservations but still okay.The band did the damn thing guitar solo was exceptional.Party of 50 (sarcasm) next to us inappropriately loud for the atmosphere , not really a family setting but people bring their babies anyway. Idk. The food was comfort food on an orgasmic level. Planning lots at Warmdaddy’s.

Warmdaddy’s was very energetic and fun. My husband and I go here at least once every other month but we are trying to go more often. We truly enjoy the live music and overall ambiance. Every time we go to Warmdaddy’s we make sure to see the live performances.

The tables were to small and the waitress would not accommodate my wife and I with another table when there were plentry available. The food aside from the crab cakes and mac and cheese was horrible. The service left much to be desired and the price of the food was high . I wanted my wife to enjoy a birthday dinner and that memory was tainted by our experience at Warmdaddy's. Never again!!

Very nice atmosphere and nice staff. Our sides were cold (mash potatoes, greens, candied yams and the string beans) so we didn't eat them. We informed the waitress, who did not take the sides off of the bill.

The best restaurant in Philadelphia for soul food and the Sunday brunch with live jazz music is unbeatable. The food there is always exquisitely properly done and consistent I have gone back recently for the first time in six or seven years (why the long wait if it's so great, well I drove over from Baltimore where I live so it's not like I'm going to go there very often) nothing has changed and in this case that is a great thing in many ways when restaurants don't change they fall away however warmdaddy's continues to thrive because what they do is really good food really done well consistently good every single time.

Went to see a Tribute to Aretha Franklin
The singer Tanqueray had everybody dancing and singing in their seats. She was quite good. The service was excellent. I have never had a bad time there, if anything is wrong they correct it immediately. Everyone is quite personable and professional.

The food was not as great as we would like. The entertainment was great. Also, it is very difficult to contact the restaurant as it was accommodations was needed because my son broke his leg 2 days before the event. Further, we waited a long time to be seated so we were not able to enjoy the food and entertainment for more than a couple of songs and it was my mothers 70th birthday so even after countless reminders to the host and waitress of the candle surprise dessert it was never given and the response was to spend money to come back in hope's they will remember. That was extremely disappointing. So I feel like the value for what we paid for was minimum.

My husband and I have visited for the Sunday jazz brunch several times. The food never disappoints! There is plenty of variety and it’s delicious. The omelette and waffle station is always a hit. The musicians are talented and know how to work the room. The beverage service was slow and the greeter wasn’t very friendly. She told me there was a 20 minute wait if I wanted a booth but there were plenty of empty booths available. The price is reasonable as well. I’m used to NYC brunch, which is almost double the price. If you want good soul food, this is the place to be on Sunday!!

I attended the 10pm show and I was pleased with my table. The server was attentive. The menu is lacking appetizers and/or snacks. The Cosmos were too small for $12 and not mixed well. The Urban Guerilla Band performed and they’re a great group! However, they only performed for 1 hour and ended abruptly! Then the door by the stage was opened for the musicians to leave, which caused us to be cold. The staff and clientele has changed. Overall, it was ok.

I went for the entertainment and the soul food. Both were outstanding. This was my 2nd time going there. I've done their Soul Sunday and that was also a great experience. I highly recommend Warmdaddy's. Also, there is a Regal movie Theatre right next door. Nothing better than a good show and a good movie afterward!

Warm Daddy's offers a little soul, global and healthy options during their Sunday Brunch. Entertainment is enjoyable with a live band as you dine. There is also cocktails available as well, I definitely would recommend for large groups and dates.

It very difficult to get touch with anyone to make or change a reservation. When I finally got in touch with someone to increase slightly the number of guests the person was rude and seemed reluctant to even try to accommodate. After several interactions they finally did. However if you are service oriented to give an effort first instead of being difficult. We were planning on spending more money but we’re extre turned off by the service.
