Good food and music

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.

Saturday night drinks, music and the relaxed atmosphere is exactly what I like. The food is not absolute best. I would however come back again to try other items on the menu

Food was excellent. We had the 7 course tasting menu. While it was very good they didn't adjust portion for a multi course meal bringing a few full size appetizers, a couple courses of full sized entrees, and a full size desert. Again, all was excellent, but 2 of us could have easily split 1 order. Cocktails were super!

I went here last year when visiting Philadelphia with my mother. The atmosphere was fantastic with live music and a general buzz about the place! The cocktails were different and really tasty. The waiters always knew exactly what to recommend based on your own tastes. We had the Chef's choice menu and it was all absolutely fabulous. The only thing... More

We went to Time looking for live music and it delivered. We saw a great reggae band called Cultureal. They really rocked! It was a great place to see music.

Many interesting meat and food choices, that change frequently, accompanied by suitable sides, always delivered with a small. To the right is a huge bar area; to the left a cozier dining room where soft jazz plays from 5-10 PM daily. (Bigger acts come in after 10PM.)

Unique but delicious choices on menu. Lamb pappardelle and duck breast with blood orange glaze were both excellent and filling. The live jazz music, with xylophone and guitar, were a wonderful bonus.
