Good food, pleasant service, lovely atmosphere. We have been here twice and enjoyed both visits very much. We now plan on having lunch here as part of the experience. We would recommend the same. I didn't know that you can book a table, there was a 45 minute wait during the Van Gough exhibit, but with so much to do and see that was not a problem. You may want to book a table prior to your visit. The chef's table is really nice, tasty, small buffet and perfect for lunch.

The food preparation and presentation is excellent. The atmosphere is relaxing and the staff is top notch. It is not inexpensive for lunch, but it well worth the price to visit such a charming museum restaurant.

Whenever I visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art, I always have lunch in the museum restaurant. The food is very good. There is a very nice wine list and the service is always wonderful. Very helpful with making a decision what to order as well as the right wine to enjoy. I always find the buffet the best choice for me. I am a vegetarian and find the buffet has a great choice of food itmes to have and I don't have to limit myself with only one choice. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but it is so beautiful and the service and food are definitly worth what you are paying, so the value is very good. This is a wonderful way to splurge and help you enjoy a great day at the museum

Very convenient when you are visiting the museum and the food was good. A nice touch that it changes with the special exhibit, but a bit expensive for portion size. Service was decent and the atmosphere is nice.
