A hidden gem off Rittenhouse square. Food was exceptional but it is the atmosphere that makes this special

An intimate dining opportunity close to Rittenhouse square. The rack of lamb, the pork tenderloin, the desserts, all worth writing home about. Nice local comfortable atmosphere. The menu and specials could be a bit easier to follow, but the service makes up for that. It did seem clear that the regulars got special attention, but we were treated well. I... More

Was told by a friend about this restaurant and so glad I was. The setting was amazing and romantic. We were seated immediately eventhough we were running 15 min late for an 8pm reservation. The staff was very attentive and didn't have to wait for anything really. Drinks were brought only moments after ordering, same with the apps. We tried... More

This is small bistro just off Rittenhouse Square and from the minute we walked in we knew it was going to be good :-) The service was superb... very friendly, very attentive... we always enjoy the European way (multiple waiters all working together on all tables vs. an individual "server"). The food was excellent - we were there during restaurant... More

My wife and I ate here in July. We came across it when we were walking around the area around Rittenhouse Square, and we are very happy that we found it. It is very intimate and lively without being distracting, and the staff is extremely accommodating and attentive. The dinner was excellent and not particularly expensive for food of that... More

An Internet search identified this little gem. The intimate confines work well with this restaurant. We were seated in a corner with comfortable throw pillows that made you feel right at home. The staff was friendly, helpful and all four of the waiters stopped by even though you weren't their primary table and made sure all of your needs were... More

We spent a very nice dinner in this place. Service was very warm and nice to us. Good food and in tune with the overall athmosphere. Tasty desserts.

Apparently a local institution. Very pleasant experience. Cosy and refined mood. Simple cuisine with fresh ingredients and personal touches. Friendly owners. Must-try!

Celebrated a family birthday last evening here. We have known about this place for a while and live in the suburbs, so it is not a place we come to regularly. We had cocktails upstairs in the small tank bar which was very noisy and crowded. Drinks were pricey, but well made. Bartender was not very helpful. Dinner was great-... More

We have frequented this restaurant occasionally over the past thirty years, though this was our first visit in quite a while. FSS, I am happy to say, still puts out fine food at a reasonable price, and still holds to its fair pricing on wines. They now offer small plates as well as normal entrees, and several are delicious.
