As a steak enthusiast, I've had meals at all of the top steakhouses. Smith & Wollensky is in the upper echelon, and the Philadelphia location is no exception. The restaurant is housed in the same building as the Rittenhouse Hotel (valet parking is available through the hotel and is overpriced, but then again parking in Philly is overpriced everywhere). Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. He took great care of us all night, offering to create samplers of various appetizers and helping with entree and dessert choices. Everyone in our group ordered filet mignon at varying temps...and everything was PERFECT. It seems simple that a steakhouse would serve your steak medium-rare when you ask for it that way, but I've been to way too many that can't get it done right. The steaks were big, juicy, flavorful...I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. But save room for dessert. They have gigantic cakes that are perfect for sharing after a big meal.
