The service was superb ! A true team approach, very attentive . The dishes were unique and the combination of flavors and textures is what makes dining here a true 5 star experience!
The sea urchin and foie gras were nothing short of spectacular as was the black squid pasta.

Vernick was worth the wait!

The vernick has great food. Very creative and unusual. We found the service was not great (our waitress was not very friendly) but the host and others were very nice. In spite of that, we would return because the food was exceptional.

Took my husband here for a treat for his birthday during a visit to Philadelphia and we were not disappointed. Food was beautifully cooked and there were some interesting flavour combinations. Service was impressive and the place had a really good atmosphere - fine dining without the stuffy atmosphere.

The service was great, friendly, knowledgable, and prompt. I sat at the bar. The drink I had was something with mezcal and had perfectly balanced flavors. For my dinner I had the crab salad on toast, which was very nice and the vegetable lasagna which was not good at all. The man next to me also had it and drew the same conclusion. It was flavorless and bland. Still, I would come back and try this place again. It wasn't as amazing as the reviews say, but it was good enough. My dinner with the drink cost about $45.
