This is one of my favorite restaurants in Philadelphia because of the quality of their food, great atmosphere, superior service and location. This is the type of the restaurants that after reading the menu you want to order every dish. Another bonus is that Russet...More

The best thing I can say was the Ice Cream was edible. The homemade pasta was hard. The veal looked like a body function & tasted like a dirty sponge. The reconstituted salmon was too salty as was the Skirt. My wine was excellent!

We had dinner at Russet before a show and it was really good. My wife said the lamb was the best she had ever tasted. Since their menu constantly changes based on the availability of farm sourced ingredients, I won't make any other specific menu...More
