Good food in a casual atmosphere. Nice beer selection with helpful bartenders in a cozy little bar. A safe bet in an area with a dearth of good places to eat and drink.

Good place at Penn. Can get a little packed during peak college times (commencement, happy hour, etc.). I prefer Bistro St. Tropez for similar food (lighter French fare) at reasonable prices, but wouldn't turn down a chance to go to La Terrasse.

La Terrasse is a very nice place. The staff are friendly, and the vibe is pretty sophisticated, especially given that it is on PENN's campus. The bar menu, the back deck and the drink specials make this a great place to get an upscale meal,...More
