Came here for their annual seder meal experience and while it was a little pricey, every course of the 5 course meal was delicious and authentic. Haggadahs were available as were coloring books for the kids and the staff made you feel very welcome. Good selection of wines to choose from as well. Park in the side streets.

So-so, nothing to get excited about. They have a "Paris room," as if that is a big attraction in Philadelphia, and it didn't look much different than the London room.

Not impressed. The drinks weren't very good for the price. The waitress couldn't answer any of our questions. The bar tender was rude. My friends and I stopped in for drinks after we had spotted this place earlier in the afternoon. We had high hopes that dwindled as the night went on. We got a table near the bar, so... More

Really enjoyed my meal. Great food and service. Near the Art museum. Check it out. Had a really nice drink and meal. Will head back when I am in town.

Dined on Christmas Eve and the restaurant was festive and packed with holiday diners. The server was a lovely young woman who was pleasant and efficient. However, the food was way below par. I ordered the bistro steak and it had the consistency of a rubber ball! My friends octopus was way over cooked and the ice cream for dessert... More

Good place to grab a bite. Interesting menu and friendly staff. Bit pricey, but overall worth the cost. The Penitentiary is right down the street so outdoor dining has a view. Would dine here again.

We went to the London Grill to kill some time before our next activity. The bar was nice and had a decent selection of beers. While I wouldn't go out of my way for this location, it was perfect for a quick drink while we were in the area. The Bartender was relaxed and helpful with directions back into the... More

My wife and I visited The London Grill recently. My wife had the bistro steak and I had the Kale salad and the special risotto. While the menu offers a variety of interesting options, the risotto and the steak were just good rather than wow type food. The kale salad probably the best choice of the three. Beer selection was...

We went here for brunch before going to the Eastern State Penitentiary. The brunch menu is small, but it has a great do-it-yourself omelet and delicious French toast ($10 each). The service was attentive, but not hovering. They also served a delicious complimentary piece of marbled coffee cake with fresh melon. So good.

Surprisingly good food for what appears to be a neighborhood corner bar. Not your typical burger and a beer place. Good food, friendly atmosphere.
