While in philly , we love to take our time to visit this place. It's a rooftop lounge/restaurant. The atmosphere is very romantic and the view especially at sunset is incredible. Pricey but worth it as the food is very rich and drinks are perfect.

What a wonderful surprise between the view, food, cocktails, and atmosphere. We ordered the rabbit - something we have never eaten before. So juicy and tender!

We were in town for a hotel opening and visited this location after taking in the views from the other observation deck nearby. We enjoyed some great wine, food, and fine desserts. The fish special seemed a tad off, but the server (Chris ?) recovered...More

You go to this restaurant primarily for the view, which is spectacular. If you are taking one of the window seats, you have to expect that some people without window seats will come by and take pictures and there will be one group who is...More

Yes I think that you and your group will be more than fine. They had a dining area and an area that was designed for happy hour. Because it's on a Saturday it might slightly overwhelm the bar but I really think you'll be ok... More
