This continues to be one of (if not) the best Philadelphia restaurant. Food an service are excellent and memorable, Pierre is back in the kitchen and he is an artist with creating fine food. That being said the new price is for a tasting menu...More
We try to go here for special occasions. Everything that comes from the kitchen is spectacular and the service is attentive without being fussy. If I win the lottery, I would eat here every week. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself!

Teeny spot filled with food worshipers. Everyone is in on the experience. The waiters and staff are determined to be at their best. But it's not stuffy or pretentious, just damned good food. BYO means you can go wild if you like.
Amazing in so many ways...the food was out of this world; each course was better than the last, tasty, creative and "scrumptious" as my husband says! The soufflé for dessert was indescribable! I have no idea how chef Pierre does it. The ambiance of environment...More
