Best ribs ever

Went for dinner here and were pleasantly surprised. It is a very nice restaurant with good service. I ordered the squid and my husband ordered the ribs. They were the best ribs ever so much so he ordered another serving, worth a visit.

If you like international cuisine and enjoy small plates I recommend checking out Continental Mid-Town in Philly. It's a unique dining experience with a trendy, cosmic, retro feel and a mix of Indian, Mediterranean, Italian, and American style entrees. It's international tapas plates! Yummy! The small plates were delicious and most could comfortably serve two people. We ordered the veal... More

Get the calamari salad or Thai chicken skewers and soak in the great modern atmosphere with a martini.

When in town for an annual conference we always visit the Continental Mid-Town. Never a bad meal. Truly wonderful atmosphere. A nice bar setting as well. Always a pleasant and good staff.

I know I'm late to the party, but my husband and I just discovered this restaurant a month ago. Tonight was our second visit, and this time we brought three guests. We were fortunate to have the same server as last time, and she was fantastic- excellent recommendations that did not disappoint. We ordered the Thai chicken lettuce wraps, crispy... More

Have been for brunch, lunch,dinner and drinks! Always a fun atmosphere. Drinks are expensive but great choices. Perfect place to share lots of dishes. Something for everyone. Fries are awesome - tuna is popular - mac and cheese is great! Not cheap but it is a good gathering place for a special night out or brunch.

Ate here recently and had a very enjoyable time. We sat on the second floor in the hanging chairs and I have to say that my date was very impressed. The food and drinks were delicious, but I did feel the drinks were a little overpriced for the small pours. Still, I will definitely be back as it was definitely... More

Quiet, good food, hip place-all with my 73 y.o. mom. She loved it! She said that it was one of the best omelets she ever ate-and she can be quite picky! I loved my smoked salmon eggs benedict. The potatoes on the side were fresh, hot and delish! To finish-and as a little treat-pecan crumble cake. It was a huge... More
