We wandered around Rittenhouse Sq. looking for something like salad/sandwich to share. The fare at the Dandelion was perfect, and the service was superb. Shared a butter lettuce salad and warm roast beef sandwich. Both were right on the money—-so tasty, and our server, Amy,...More

Old fashioned 'British-pub' style - choice of food is excellent and well presented and there's a great taster of 3 different ales that went down very well !

Called in here at end of first day in Philadelphia. I was tired and hungry. Had nice craft beers and a small but excellent menu. Very friendly. Will return.

This stop was a delight with little exterior signage, old school British pub where I had a flight of beer while sitting outside on the picnic bench watching people wander along on the sidewalk. We did not dine here, only a beer tasting.

We came here for a family birthday late lunch and enjoyed a cocktail, the food and pub atmosphere. Staff were attentive and the meal was good. The deviled eggs are especially nice!

So this place is OK. Food was good service was on the sucky side but once you did order, it was quick to arrive. I’ll skip this place. Many other options nearby.

I would suggest a phone call to the restaurant as well; while I was just recently there and recall seeing a few options for folks with food specific needs, I don't recall enough of the menu to advise you safely.

Parking in Philly is a nightmare, as in any other big city. Try the BestParking app or website. You can look and see what public garages there are near the restaurant. Be aware that city traffic will be tough - you probably... More

Susan, give the restaurant a call. They serve alcohol, not a BYOB place. They have many unique spaces for dining
