We went to R2L for my wife's birthday and reserved a window table in advance. To do this, you must make a deposit in advance (which commits you spend a certain amount), but you get to pick the exact table. I wasn't quite sure how this was going to work out, but they were good about letting us know how... More

My husband surprised me with a corner window table for my birthday at R2L - what a night! Our waiter Matthew was absolutely perfect, and the service very much added to the overall specialness of the night. We started with the Fromage Blanc Gnocchi(oh WOW it's literally as if you're eating little cheese pillows of air) and drinks (Pouilly Fume... More

We had a really nice time in the bar overlooking Philly. We enjoyed heavy appetizers and many delicious drinks. Everything was great. Our waiter was adorable, the food was perfect and the drinks were creative and fun. And of course the view is fantastic.

This had to be one of the best upscale restaurants I've ever been at. The atmosphere was nice and laid back and felt like you were wanted there. Didn't get a window seat but from where me and my lady sat the view was good enough. Our waiter was exceptional and courteous. I order the grilled chicken meal which came... More

Take your credit card, your taste for great wine and high-rise views, and get to R2L on the 37th floor. The appetizer menu is not that long, but it has something for everyone and sharing three or four of them -- along with a glass or two of wine -- will suffice for dinner if you are not starving. It...
