Had brunch here with a friend after a night out. We sat at the bar and the bartender was fantastic! Food was excellent. If we were staying longer, we would have hung out more.

I hope I just caught this place on a bad morning, but what was once one of my favorite spots was way off. Tables needing to be cleared, disinterested and occasionally angry staff made for an unpleasant and disappointing experience. Please figure out how to...More

I only wound up in here as all the places I had wanted to visit were full, but it was no disappointment. The menu is simple, with what I would describe as a Mediterranean twist. No complaints.

This restaurant is attached to a hotel in center city. We ordered frittatas but they looked more like egg pancakes when they came out. It was still pretty good. Their mimosa was good too!

There are so many options for a great meal in Philly. I'm glad you chose us. Holiday weekends it's always tough to get a reservation but give us a call any time and we will do our best to accommodate.

Snack menu (outside regular dining hours) is cheaper but still good. Liked the burgers & fries, as well as bacon-wrapped figs.
