Fun!

Stopped into the bar for drinks after a not so relaxing evening. Very comfortable and cozy upstairs. The drinks were delicious. I only wish we had tried the food! Very relaxed service, be ready to hang out and enjoy the atmosphere. Will definitely return for dinner.

Despite the restaurant's name and usual service times, it was open on a Wednesday night for New Year's Eve. We were part of the early sitting, perfect for us given our plans. All the service staff were in a festive mood when we arrived and prompted us to get in the spirit of the evening. The rather quaint decor was... More

Have not been to this spot in several years but visited while in town for the holidays. Still has the very reasonable bottles of wine, the mirrors with tiny lights as decor, and terrific food. The five leaf salad with honey, goat cheese and walnuts was fresh and delicious. Then I had the filet Mignon au poivre,perfectly cooked. My husband... More

I have loved every experience at this restaurant. It is small, quaint, and cozy. the staff are friendly, unobtrusive, and very accommodating. The wine prices are very reasonable and the food is always delicious. The butternut squash ravioli keep me coming back for more. Even when I want to try something new I will convince my wife to order the... More

Had dinner here recently on a busy Saturday night. We had a reservation but had not requested upstairs. When we walked in there were a couple of large groups seated and it was very loud so we asked about the availability of a table upstairs. The waiter took us up to see what was open. Fortunately, there was an open... More

We met some friends here on Friday night. This is small place very near Rittenhouse Square with a cozy feeling. I had delicious butternut ravioli, my friend had rack of lamb and the men had pork chops. Everyone seemed pleased with their meals.The portions were just right. The service was attentive and pleasant even though the restaurant was full. My... More

This restaurant was recommend to me by the owner of another Philly area restaurant and is now on my list of one of my favorite Philly places. We sat upstairs (just off the bar) having been given the choice of tables either downstairs or upstairs and told that both were good but upstairs was quieter. It has cloth draped ceilings... More

(I rarely give 5 star reviews unless there's something remarkable about a hotel or restaurant like: location, service, food or atmosphere).. What's Fri, Sat, Sun like? Imaging having a friend with a townhouse off Rittenhouse Square. Then imagine the friend was a really, really, really good cook. Now image you were invited for a dinner party with cool guests. That's... More

30 plus years ago we dined at this restaurant and continue to go there from time to time. The restaurant was in the forefront of the explosion of wonderful restaurants in the city. It was very good then and remains so today. We recently returned and had a wonderful dinner, the mushroom soup (one of the standards of the restaurant)... More

This is one of the only remaining restaurants from the Philly Restaurant Renaissance of the 70's!!! It is super funky and a little dark. But the food is top notch!!!! They are well known for their mushroom soup! We took friends there last year and, after one of our guests tasted his soup, he jokingly asked the waiter to cancel... More
