First impressions last! I asked the hostess to be seated away from the noise at the bar. She sneared and said “ I’ll do my best.” Geez, the dining room was empty and she seated us not far from the entrance. Service was slow and...our server was frequently missing. There was a general feeling of disorganization. The food was mediocre. I heard that if there’s a party their other room, the dining room will suffer, as we did.More

We decided to go to Randi's for our 36th Anniversary. The meal was very disappointing! I ordered a filet that was sent back twice , the first time overcooked , the second time basically raw. I cancelled my meal. My husband's seafood dish was very...bland. We tried giving this restaurant another chance in hopes of some improvements, but that was not the case. We will not be going back there again!More

Randi’s always a guaranteed good meal, good evening. As great as the food is the friendly staff is what really makes the place special. Plenty of parking. Full bar. Handicapped accessible. Try the desserts!

We were a small group of eight celebrating a birthday at the sunday brunch. The selection is small and all of the food was set out in uncovered warming trays. Everything was cold. The bacon was so overcooked it seemed it was reheated and had...dried out. They did offer made to order omelets that I didn't have, however they made them in their kitchen and it took forever for then to be served. The service started out great but then the waitress disappeared and plates piled up on our table. There weren't many people in the dining room but they ran out of plates.More

We attended a luncheon for 100+ folks & although the room was packed, the service was outstanding & everyone was comfortable. Lunch menu offered 4 sandwiches: flounder, chicken, tuna & cheesesteak. Our table tried all 4 & were very pleased with each selection. The bar's...beer & wine choices were fine & reasonably priced. Great place for a large group.More

My favorite Pea soup was terrible, very watery. Prime rib severed cold! Waitress apologized brought me same one re-heated. Very disappointing as I ordered it medium rare. First bad meal I ever had at Randie's. Others in party were happy as as a clam. Will...give them another shot but for now have to lick my wounds.More

We visited Randi’s on a Saturday evening and used a gift certificate given to us awhile ago. We were seated quickly. There was a large birthday party going on so possibly that was why the events that unfolded were not perfect. The first server told...us that she will be around “eventually”. She just had a argument with another patron and told them she was not having a good day. She went up and told the hostess something and never came back. Someone did come around eventually and took our order. Then a third person came and said she was our server. She was pleasant and very efficient. We did hear several people from the birthday party send their food back because it was cold. Crabby lady took forever serving it to them and let it sit on the trays. Ours came and it was good. Not hot by any means and served right away but edible. I think this restaurant needs to work on their servers attitude and also food delivery times. I will say again that the server we ended up with was excellent.More

I've been going to this restaurant since I was born,( like before it was called Randi's) because my Uncle was the musician there (his photo is on the wall in the bar next to his piano). This is a fantastic place for parties, or just...a night out at a tasty restaurant in Northeast Philly. I would differently say it is family friendly, date night worthy, and if your just looking to have a bite to eat and make some new friends it is differently the spot you want to check out. They serve AMAZING Italian food, but have a fair variety of other foods to chose from. The deserts are to die for my favorite being their rum cake. The servers are so sweet and attentive. If you live in the city or are a visitor its one of the places you need to stop and check out.More

We visit Randi's about 6 times per year. What a gem. Atmosphere for a local restaurant is great. Staff always friendly. The food selections are amazing from steaks to seafood you name it! Can't beat their prime rib, I've had ones in Kansas that couldn't...hold a candle to theirs. Soup or salad amazing, bread, entree w/potato/veggies out the door $30. Some times I'll change it up and order the Cioppino over linguine, check it out you won't be disappointed. Wife loves steak "Blue Eyes". no filler in the crab. Had a baby shower in attached facility, great assortment, served hot well done!More

We have gone to Randi's several times, and to to be honest, I don't know how they are still in business. The food was awful. The decor is outdated, and ceiling tiles are about to fall on the floor. Spaghetti sauce is awful, Chicken Francais...(worst lemon sauce I've ever had), Penne a la vodka, and Chicken Picatta were terrible. "Fresh" vegetables were the worst I've ever had. The entire menu is uninspiring. Old, tired. Seems like the Chef/Ownership is just trying to get by with minimum effort. Desert (cake) was stale. NOTHING IS FRESH. Ughhhhhhh.More

Was in there on a Saturday night a couple weeks ago to celebrate the in laws 60th anniversary and a birthday and I didn’t want to say anything to disrupt the party but I was very disappointed. It took3 tries to make my dinner. The...service was great. One of our servers caught that my husbands lamb was over cooked and didn’t bring it out so it took two tries to get his dinner. I ordered the stuffed filet done medium rare and it didn’t say anywhere that it was stuffed with roasted red peppers and I can’t eat those. The second attempt at my dinner was the kitchen picking out the peppers and refirering the same steak so that it was medium well. Finally I got my dinner and everyone was completely finished with their meals and I didn’t even want mine anymore. No where was a manager? Any of the other restaurants that I go to would have taken my dinner off the check, offered dessert or at least a drink especially after two meals were wrong once and then one was wrong again. It took 20-25 minutes to redo the lamb and I sat without a meal for 45 minutes. For being a 4 star rating restaurant, it was very disappointing. There are too many restaurants out there to accept the lack of caring that the management of this place had.More

I have known Randi personally for twenty years and the amount of time is closer to ten since she opened Randi's. It is one of our most favorite restaurants in the Philly northeast .
