Had dinner today (9/10/14). I was disappointed by the quality of food. My wife and I ordered Caesar salad. It was mostly chopped lettuce, lots of grated cheese dry dressing and no garnish. Looked like a diners special. I ordered broiled seafood combination ($30.). Tuna was not seared, but sautéed and very dry, same with salmon. The rest of the... More

The staff was very gracious. The melon, prosciutto, and cheese is excellent! Pasta was good and cappuccino was the perfect ending to a delightful evening. Very nice!

We came for lunch during the Fishtown, Northern Liberties, Penn's Landing Restaurant Week. Maybe that was the problem. It seemed as though as soon as we asked for the restaurant week menu, everyone lost interest. There was only one other couple when we arrived. We received water, bruschetta and bread quickly, but after that, everything was slow, slow, slow. We... More

I like being spoiled! I was greeted warmly and immediately served a fresh and flavorful bruschetta on house-made bread. I ordered the spinach and ricotta ravioli; the tomato basil sauce was absolutely fresh and the pasta was wonderful! Angelo, the maitre'd, stopped by my table at least four times to make sure I was happy. I dined with a view... More

Saw restaurant across from hotel and decided to try it. Seemed to be a slow week night and we were seated immediately at a table next to the doorway and windows facing the river and marina. Tried the calamari and it was excellent. Golden brown, lightly breaded and tender without being rubbery. Definitely enough to share for two. Both had... More

My husband and I go to La Veranda every Saturday for lunch. Angelo greets us. Gene takes care of our cocktails and Bledie is our server. He is the best in the city. The veal is tender and full of flavor. The rack of lamb is delicious. The chef Dino is excellent. After lunch, we go outside and love the... More

Went with a group of friends for what I hoped would be a memorable meal - it was memorable, but not for the right reasons. Swordfish in a restaurant either tends to be really good or really bad; here it was the latter. Hesitant to order, I was assured it was fresh and not frozen - I would bet my... More

We were in Philadelphia for my sons graduation and took he and his wife to La Veranda for dinner. The view was good, but we had not seen them for a while and caught up on conversation in a quiet comfortable atmosphere. The wine list was excellent with numerous Italian choices. The veal chop was large and cooked right, the... More

My husband and I visited this waterfront gem recently, with another couple, and were surprised to find it nearly empty on a Friday night. We were seated at a table near the window with a spectacular view of the marina and the Ben Frankin Bridge. Our waiter was very attentive and had an easy manner- never rushed. We had a... More

It's ashame to see all the bad experiences here. I just ate here for my second time and have no complaints. The pasta was superb and the service was impeccable. Every employee was very friendly and willing to help. The dessert (we had the cheesecake) was the only negative as it tasted like it had been in the fridge for... More
