Just arrived in Philly and across the road from our hotel. Excellent service and food and just nice to be able to wind down after travelling.

This used to be called "Upstares at Varalli". That is not a typo. The spelling refers to the large windows overlooking Broad Street. It is now the Perch Pub. The restaurant, 'Varalli', continues downstairs and is excellent. My buddies and I go there often before a concert.

The restaurant was a bit noisy in the front but when we requested something quieter, the waiter took us in the back. WOW!!! Gorgeous very private booths with couches with high backs made each table feel as if nobody else was around. Nice classy music and the stage was set for a special meal. And what a meal it was!!!...

It is really too bad that one event in a restaurant can really ruin the meal. The food was good, especially for the price, but the gentleman who seated us really copped an attitude and THAT turned out to be unfortunate. When we entered, the bar was very noisy. He said he was going to seat us in the bar... More

The location, atmosphere and service was great. The food was all around disappointing. I had the Lobster Raviolli - the pasta was not fresh, actually dry. If I did not know that it was supposed to be lobster - I would not have been able to tell. The topping was carmelized onions and way too many mushrooms. It tasted more... More

It is a great place to enjoy a drink and one of their specialty burgers. Mussels were awesome.

Loved, loved, loved it! We had a wonderful server Michael who made us feel like we were in his home and he made us feel special. The food was wonderful and we didn't feel rushed as it was a very busy night. It was our friend's Birthday and they brought her dessert with a candle and sang Happy Birthday to... More
