My wife and I went here for her birthday and were blown away. We ordered the charred octopus appetizer, strip steak and salmon entrees. These were great portion sizes and the taste was unbelievable. Very creative dishes and outstanding flavor. And it wasn't that expensive...More

I wrestled with this rating but it was either a 5 or a 4. They brought me the wrong entree. It would have helped if I could tell the difference between the mackerel and the Japanese bass but by the time I realized the dish...More

Small, quaint authentic restaurant on South Street. BYOB. Cash only. Food was excellent. Grilled octopus was wonderful as was the bass as an entree. The Sunday Tasting Menu looked great- would have to come back for it!

Had dinner with 4 business associates at Pumpkin. Service was friendly and attentive from the server and the manager who stopped to chat. We had grilled octopus and foi Gras for appetizers and really good black bass and sea bass for mains. Desert was pot...More

I found Pumpkin looking for somewhere to go for Halloween. The food was artistically presented, and professionally served. Bonus points for BYO policy! This is a special place, worth the trek through the dicey neighborhood.

This little gem on South St. in Philadelphia is worth a visit but bring cash and BYOB. BYOB helps keep the cost down but plan to spend $30+ for an entree. The place sits about 20 so best to get a reservation. The food is...More

A recent Sunday dinner was great. We did not realize it was prix fixe only on Sundays, but it made selections much easier (and cheaper). And since it's BYOB, it's even more reasonable. Seating just 26 lucky diners, we scored the window table. Our server...More

Pumpkin is a Philly delight. In a former residential rowhouse, it seats at most 30, so reservations are a must. And, due to quirky Philly liquor laws it's BYOB (so bring your own wine) and like a lot of Philly's smaller eateries, it's cash only,...More
