    Pastry board is full of wonderful things. Pancakes were fantastic but don't order anything additional as they're massive and heavy. Also casually the best bathroom I've ever used, public or private.

    The server told us the menu is seasonal, but everything I ate was amazing. I highly recommend The Backpacker, The Trio and Huevos Rancheros. I'll come back here on my next visit. Ask to sit outside!

    If I made a list of my top-ten dishes of 2011, three would come from Olexy's big-city spot: braised rabbit with handkerchief pasta, soft-shell crab with spicy fennel pickle, and golden potato gnocchi.

    My favorite restaurant in Philly. Expect farm-to-table & creative dishes, an ever-changing menu and a romantic setting. Ask for dish recs. I'm a fan of everything, from the bread to the cheese.

    Love this place!! Cheese plates are awesome, get one! Everything I've had was so good here! Beautiful garden when weather is permitting but inside has a wonderful ambiance as well. Great service too.

    curry tuna app was yummy but 2 small pieces of fish on top of delicious veggies &yummy dressing. Lamb app was tasty. The garden bouillabaisse was small& too fishy flavored. Duck breast &confit decent.

    When the weather’s good, a glass of wine, a board of cheese, the setting sun and a constant breeze make this the quickest and most beautiful escape in Philadelphia.

    You won’t go wrong! Meat lovers can’t miss the tender sliced hangar steak. The chocolate pudding tart also comes highly recommended. Skip the pricey cheese plates unless you’re a connoisseur. Read more

    Yet another Starr property that feels like a completely unique space. Excellent food. Try the cheese plates and the Bluefish, Scallops or Swordfish.

    A great price-value white wine: Luigi Bosca's torrontes is medium-bodied and aromatic w/ lavender and citrus notes. For a red: Bocchino's '08 Langhe Nebbiolo is rich, full-bodied, and impressive.

    Cod overbooked, lamb overbooked butt end served on plate with undercooked sweat potatoes that were rocks, coffee came so late. They comp'd most of the meal. Talula's table in KS is 10x better
