    Amazing chicken wings, different varieties of flavors, very crispy on the outside but juicy on the inside. Everything is tasty!

    So I can't suggest the Tasting Menu. I was hoping for some of the menu highlights. Lots of fishy scary salty stuff instead. Order what sounds delish from the regular menu.

    Food was delicious. We sat at the kitchen bar and guessed what dishes were being made. Great night even though the ac unit rained on me a little.

    Start with a bowl of wilted shiso leaves, charred pea tendrils, and sugar snap peas whose pods, bearing icy cucumber pebbles, float like little green canoes on a clear dashi broth. Read more

    The lamb was much better w/o the eggplant condiment. Goat cheese sorbet was nice - but make sure you have a bit of mint with each bite. Deep fried duck leg was perfection. Raw scallops were a delight.

    Having proven to be one of the most inventive and beautiful restaurants around, Serpico could be just the thing to turn South Street around. [Eater 38 Member]

    You must try Cope's corn raviolo. South Street chef Peter Serpico uses the Pennsylvania staple, along with chorizo, white cheese, pickled and roasted onions, sour cream and lime in his ravioli. Read more

    Everything was sensational but highlights include the fried duck leg, sunchoke salad and raw scallops. Do not leave without dessert - rocky road and apple cake will blow your hair back!

    If you come here you should sit by the counter and have the tasting menu. It's very light and nice small portions giving a lot of flavours.

    Leave your culinary inhibitions at the door. Food & service are great. Excellent wine list. Try to sit at the chef's table if you can.

    The manager, Rich, is a super awesome dude. And so is the bartender, Brian. Plus the diver scallops were impeccable and there's a cocktail with Maneschevitz.
