“Fantastic Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

Group of six ladies sat down in the bar for flights and dinner and had the best time! Our server - hate that I can't remember his name - was the perfect server for our group and even showed his knowledge of Spanish and Italian while speaking to one of the ladies. We had fun sampling the wines and champagne via flights. The food was amazing. As always, I took the recommendations of the server and had wonderful lobster ravoli with a light cream sauce. Just wonderful. If I go back to Philly, it'll be a repeat restaurant for me.

“Stunning wine list, food is pretty mainstream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

The wine list is commendable, with something in all price ranges. 120 wines by the glass. Excellent knowledgeable service. But the food is sort of pedestrian -- earnest but not elegant. A little old fashioned. There are better choices all around the Old City area. Take a walk and get a better and more interesting meal.

“Amazing wine. Good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

We were here on a very busy night. I would imagine service is great on a typical night, it was pretty good the night we were there. The wine list is beyond impressive and all the types we sampled were great. The food was decent. Salads weren't worth the price. The entrees were quite good, but not amazing. In full disclosure, we are picky. Wine bar is definitely worth a visit!

“Would Definitely Eat Here Again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Oanaorama was recommended to us by our hotel concierges when we asked for a nice italian restaurant close by. Panaorama has a great wime list with 120 different wines available by the glass!
The food and service were great. Very attentive but not oppressive.

I had the the salmon filet special, which was great. The fish itself was good and properly cooked.....the sauce was the best I've had anywhere. It was a perfect compliment to the salmon. My wife was equally happy with her meal.

If you are in philly, like wine and italian food, the Panorama is worth consideration.
