American | Center City, Philadelphia

Overall an excellent experience. The entrees were outstanding, and the deep fried duck leg and eggplant {appetizers? small plates?} were excellent also. The ceviche and hamachi tartare were good but not great. A bit disappointed in the cocktail and wine offerings. Great service, and priced as you would expect. More

Sushi | Center City, Philadelphia

We had the best dinner at Double Knot! First, the service was outstanding!!! David was such a great waiter I would recommend asking for him!! Definitely let him help you pick wine if you are confused or need help. He really knows his stuff! The food here is outstanding!! We did the tasting menu. Some of the highlights were: the hamachi, the Japanese sea scallops and the rice with cod. Honestly, everything was delicious. Definitely take recess from the servers b/c they really know whats good. The only negative was that the food came out way too fast (which is not the servers fault). We got 5 of our 10 dishes at once. I hate free flowing kitchens. It completely ruins the dining experience. So make sure you'll them not to bring too many plates at the time and if they do ask them to slow it down. More

One of the best, most overlooked restaurants in Philadelphia. The menu is one gem after another, and when you pair that with some of the best service anywhere, you have an unbeatable recipe - sorry for the pun. More

I had not been to El Vez in years so I banked on a great memory when taking a friend from out of town. It was as good as I remember it! We were late due to an accident, I called and Shannon made sure to keep our table until we arrived. Service was just the way I like it - on point! The entire team there is amazing! The nachos and the guacamole were excellent! I will keep coming back over and over again! More

Sushi | Center City, Philadelphia

This is my new favorite sushi restaurant. The reason is the prepared and cooked options. My favorites include the crispy Brussel sprouts (with a terrific soy based sauce), the shishito peppers (best in Philadelphia and again because they are accompanied by a great sauce), spicy tuna on crispy rice (why haven't I found this anywhere else?), creamy rock shrimp (a tiny bit spicy, but again -best in Philadelphia) and the best and most creative desert - chocolate won tons. Their sauces make Kinme stand out, but the desert forces me back each week because my wife loves chocolate. The wontons are small, bite sized and are filled with a high quality dark chocolate. It's always a spectacular end to a great meal. I do have a few pieces of nigiri sushi at each meal and it is always very good. But I can usually find that anywhere. I will note they serve the high quality ginger found in better establishments (pure ivory in color). But the truly unique dishes are from the kitchen. As an aside, I have had the Pho and enjoyed it, but my go-to every-week dishes are listed above. More

Italian | Center City, Philadelphia

The service was amazing. We were sat immediately and even got our requested outside seating. The ambience is great, and very casual. The food is delicious, simple, and very approachable. It’s so easy to share any dish between the table. Nothing is too complicated and very simple homemade Italian. The sangria is delicious, I recommend a carafe, because you will want a second glass. Share some apps and salads, abs get the large plate of spaghetti and meatballs to share... or the Sunday gray is available. Price is fair and well worth the experience. I always bring out-of-towners here. More
