good for being in a train station, but limited selection and poor vegetarian options

my title basically says it all. If you're at the train station and have a delay or something, JG domestic is definitely better than your other 30th Street station options. That said, the menu selection is quite small and not good at all if there is a vegetarian in your party. This place is better... read more

given that this restaurant is in the atrium of a modern skyscraper the interior designers did a good job of making it still have an atmosphere. the staff was very friendly and helpful. the food was a little disappointing. I had the chopped salad with BBQ chicken added. The chicken was dry and the salad has less flavor than one... More

We went here prior to boarding a train, it' in the building next to the train station. We both ordered the burger, as we were told that's what the specialty is. It wasn't anything special; just your normal burger and fairly pricey. Beer selection is limited and the night we dined they ran out of cider. Just Ok.

You can get green eggs and ham at this restaurant. They sell a lot of appetizers or tappas which I am a big fan! They have good drinks too! It is located next to the train station so it is centrally located.

JG Domestic is very convenient (right next to 30th St Station) and a favorite when traveling. Eclectic dishes are sourced locally whenever possible, and the tasting menu's terrific. Atmosphere is relaxed/casual. It can get loud from the occasional happy hour crowd, but there's sufficient seating away from them. The staff can be stellar!

We chose J D Domestic for it's location at the Cira Center (close to work) and because it is a Jose Garces restaurant and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is friendly and we all enjoyed our selections. For appetizers we had the flatbread with black truffles, which was absolutely scrumptious and the eggplant hummus, also delicious.Our entrees were the... More

This is what -- # 7 for Jose in Philadelphia? There's a reason he's so successful and JG won't disappoint. I even went on a day when the oven was broken so we could only order cold items. It still was delicious and the service top notch. The best part about this place is location - if you're meeting someone... More
