Saturday Surprise

Time is a cozy place with a cool jazz vibe. Ended up here on Saturday night with my friends for my 40th birthday. After trying 2 other places in the area that had 3-4 hour waits for walk ups, I saw a sign for a whiskey bar and though lets's try here. When the hostess said that the wait time... read more

Really nice atmosphere in the dining and bar area adjacent to the booze bar. The jazz was smooth the whiskey hard and the food nice . Service is good. Price is above average prepare to spend not splash. Overall I would go here again and again. Next tome I am told to try to signature Marrow dish. The chicken waffles... More

Been to time twice this year and have not been disappointed! The live music, the crowd, general ambience is great. I have not had the food yet so can not comment on that. Upstairs can get a little crazy but still able to have a good time. I recommend for a night out with friends upstairs and date night downstairs.

Wife and I wanted .....needed....a drink after long day of Christmas shopping. We happened on Time and had a blast. Great acoustic music friendly staff, lots of whiskey from around the world.

Fortunately wandered into Time on a recent Friday night in Philly with my GF. This is a bar with a diverse crowd with a couple of bars downstairs and apparently another bar upstairs. Yes .... this bar has LIVE music. There was a five dollar cover to get in, however, to see live music, it was clearly worth it. My... More

Just back from a wonderful birthday celebration a dear friend with some great music, food n a very attentive n amazing server Zac. The reason for giving this one star is the racial discrimination by the security personnel outside. A friend of ours forgot his phone inside which he realized after coming out that too after spending over 3 hours... More

We went to hear the jazz music but were told we could not sit in the restaurant/ table area. Instead they ushered us into this crowded bar with TVs showing sports events. They could have had the TVs showing the live show in the other room. The cocktails were very average and overpriced. They do have an extensive list of... More

My first visit to Time and I was very pleasantly surprised. The menu is creative and the food was great. I had recently tried octopus for the first time at a different restaurant and it was so good, I decided to try it at Time. It was so incredibly tender and was served with tasty veggies and crispy chick peas... More

Pleasant, lively but still relaxed atmosphere in the bar area where a small jazz band played. We enjoyed a light supper: Tile fish with a salsa verde and a Bibb salad with peaches, corn and danish blue cheese - both very tasty and just the right amount. The special attraction was the wide variety of whiskies available. Both that we... More
