This is a local bistro located near Rittenhouse Square that has consistently produced excellent food. For tourists and locals the menu is varied, offers gluten free options and makes mean Martinis. Highly recommended.

Dined here 8/23/2014. Had calamari and pot stickers apps- both very good. My wife and daughter ordered the scallops which were slightly overcooked. My steak frites was excellent- extremely tender NY strip was cooked to a perfect medium. Service was a little spotty. Apps brought to table, had to ask server to bring plates for sharing. Overall a good meal... More

My husband and I always joke that interesting is not the same thing as good but, in the case of the menu at Twenty Manning, it was. The menu has a wide range of cuisine types and the ones we had were all good. We started with the gyoza which were excellent! My husband had the Beef with Noodles and... More

I attempted to make a reservation for a group of 9 for my son's graduation from Drexel University. I was told because we were a group of 8 or more, we had to do the group dining, where we would be offered a limited tasting menu. We could choose between the 35.00 per person menu or the 45.00 per person... More

If you don't mind noise, this is a nice little restaurant in Rittenhouse Square. Seems to be a local favorite. Even on a Wednesday night, it was packed. The shrimp cocktail was a great value; JUMBO shrimp. The beef and noodles were amazing and I loved the half-baked Toll House cookie and ice cream dessert. Service was great, also! When... More

This adorable little restaurant was a real treat. Our hotel made reservations and despite being a Friday night, we were seated in a nice booth as soon as we arrived. The service was friendly and prompt. We didn't feel shamed for not ordering drinks or entrees - Chop Chop salad was delish. Other appetizers were as well. If I lived... More

Sorry to say but this meal was not great at all. Party of four, three ordered pork and one, me, ordered the ravioli. Let's start w the apps- best part were the beets while the tuna smelled like marijuana (waiter explained it was the tea leaves upon which the tuna is laid on?)- not so much. Distinct smell of marijuana.... More

We reserved this restaurant weeks in advance and they failed to tell us that is was "Restaurant Week" in Philly. The menu was a limited prix fixe $35.00 for a 3 course meal, service was rushed and food was lousy. They basically threw our appetizers at us as well as our desserts....everything felt premade. My husband's calamari salad tasted as... More

We tried this restaurant on a Saturday evening with a group of four people. They are only open for dinner. Everyone liked the decor and atmosphere. We all thought the food was excellent. The appetizer selection was unique and varied. The menu had some standard fare items and some eclectic, cosmopolitan selections. The chef did a really great job bringing... More
