    One of the greatest dining experiences out there. Beautiful environment, amazing team and inspired dishes. I'm rarely this wow'd by a meal but Serpico is sheer brilliance.

    Amazing food and ambiance. Peter Serpico takes his food to another level. Try the long hot ramen. It's amazing 👌👏👌👏👏👌

    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.

    Bill Addison: "Order 2 dishes: lobes of sashimi-grade scallops backstroking through buttermilk & a bowl of dashi decorated with trompe l'oeil, including gelatinized cubes of crème fraiche & pea pods." Read more

    Really good service and the seafood dishes were done perfectly

    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]

    Highlights: hamachi, duck leg, short ribs.

    peter kafka · December 31, 2013

    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 · December 27, 2013

    Spectacular menu! Try the pig head. That's off my bucket list!

    Get the apple cake! Delicious!!!

  • Niffy S.

    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.

    Give the tasting menu a try. You won't be disappointed.

    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.

    Good service. Good food. Will come again.

    Get a seat at the counter to watch the kitchen in action. Order the deep fried duck leg and the yuzu curd.

    Barrett Lane · August 24, 2013

    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.

    Sarah Bart · August 11, 2013
  • DK D.

    Egg custard caviar and Elysian Farm lamb ribs. For dessert must order the Toasted Apple Cake.

    DK Davis · August 7, 2013
  • Kristen H.

    Get the fried duck leg. Or get 5.

    Kristen Holahan · July 26, 2013

    Pretty fucking good.

    Benjamin Kintner · July 7, 2013

    I'll have one of everything, please! Best meal in Philly, hands down.
