Let me cut right to the chase 45 bucks and an absolutely delicious 5 course dinner, hard to beat - very creative kitchen, every dish they sent out was a winner! Bring your own wine, even better, pick a delicious bottle from your wine cellar - don't be stingy - because the food deserves it. Only gripe, the service, while... More

A small BYOB restaurant, pumpkin always has a nice vibe, especially for a BYOB. My wife and I have eaten at Pumpkin many times and consistency is the key. Pumpkin is consistently tops in service, food and value. Appetizers - apps come in a nice size portion. they rotate the menu so always be on the lookout for newer apps... More

Interesting and thoughtfully prepared food, great small location and excellent service. We were initially a party of 4, joined by a fifth person who only visited and drank wine (and remember this is a BYOB, so the restaurant got nothing out of it, basically). No problem at all. Excellent food-- two had monkfish, one duck, one trout--- well prepared, fairly... More

We did the 5 course tasting menu. All were great. Our favorites were the beef tartar, carrot soup and the cheese course. Dessert was awesome too - I'd recommend the pudding with pb and chocolate. Service was excellent. Our waitress was so nice and sweet. We enjoyed talking with her and she was always making sure we had what we... More

Really quaint, with excellent food and good quick service, not far from the Verizon Hall, perfect dinner before going to see the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Excellent BYOB. We had flatiron steak and arctic char. The char was probably the best I ever had–the waiter said he’d tell the chef, I was the second person that evening to say so. Even better, believe it or not, were the bits of beets that came with it. Oh, my. Again, the best ever. Beefy, earthy, pickled just so.... More

We came here for the Sunday night pre fix menu. We looked at the menu ahead of time to ensure there was something everyone could eat for each course. The ambiance is absolutely stunning. Very small place, probably smaller than most people's dining room. Very intimate, quiet, with low playing music. The hostess was very nice & offered to put... More

This cash only BYOB is very cosy. I counted about 30 seats, so don't expect to walk-in & get a seat. The service was excellent. The food was creative without being over the top. The proportions were proper on all courses, with 2-3 courses you will be satisfied & not stuffed. The room can get quite warm with so many... More
