Great food, great ambiance, great service. They have very inventive desserts that are delicious. The rabbit pot pie was amazing. There are at least two bar areas perfect for happy hour.

Parking in Philly is a nightmare, as in any other big city. Try the BestParking app or website. You can look and see what public garages there are near the restaurant. Be aware that city traffic will be tough - you probably... More
