I found an old friend in this restaurant. I had been there numerous times by the old guard but not since it got sold. I found the food a work of art,both aesthetically and deliciously,lol. Our waiter was both knowledgeable and helpful but unobtrusive. Each plate a work of art to the and t the tongue.Iloved it. If I have one complaint it is to the rude hostess that I asked to seat me,even tho my companion had not arrived. I could not get near the bar and needed a seat. She looked disdanfully at me and ignored me but other one did seat me. A lovely girl. Will def be back.

We had a lovely dinner at Friday Saturday Sunday. Our table for two was perfectly placed by the window with comfy leather chairs as we enjoyed dishes from each section of the menu. Our waiter was excellent offering some great suggestions too. We are looking forward to going back to try what we didn’t experience this time.

Eating dinner last night at Barbuzzo reminded me that I wanted to review our dinner at FSS last Friday after the PA Ballet. Barbuzzo's dinner cost $134 and was, as always, wonderful. FSS cost $269 - almost exactly twice the cost of Barbuzzo - and was a major disappointment. And the cost wasn't the problem. We've spent over $500 for dinner at Laurel and thought it was fantastic and worth the cost. The biggest problem with FSS was salt. But first, the good. Beautiful revamp of the old FSS (which we always loved, by the way). Excellent service by Tim. My wife's endive and treviso salad and my chicken liver mousse were outstanding. The first problem was the crackers (or whatever they call it) served at the beginning of dinner. I love good bread, my wife loves bread sticks and crackers, and we both hated FSS's version. Awful. We barely ate any. My wife's octopus was good but the accompanying beans, too salty. My collard greens were almost excellent, just too salty. Her smoked herring spaghetti was so salty she could not eat it, sent it back (which we almost never do), and the second version was not much better - still too salty. My striped bass was bland and, at the same time, too salty. There are spices other than salt. My cheesecake was only fair and my first cup of coffee arrived lukewarm so I sent it back. My second cup was good but I was never offered a refill. The last time we had such a problem with salt was at the now-closed Spraga, where we often dined until one dinner where saltiness was over the top. We were so looking forward to FSS as the reviews have been excellent. Go figure. We were so disappointed. We dine out frequently in Philly but we won't be going back to FSS.

Food was to die for absolutely delicious! The presentation was beautiful and the bread with the honey butter was unreal it melts in your mouth. The Brussels sprouts, chicken and gnucci were cooked to perfection. Lots of flavor! 5 stars all the way with the service as well.

I am giving the restaurant this rating because of how I was treated at the end of what was otherwise a top notch meal. The food and drinks were excellent- we had several appetizers, a pasta, shared the duck and an ice cream dessert. This was a birthday celebration. Service was very professional . No complaints there. However, the dining room is very cramped. Tables are very close together. Two gentlemen were seated behind me across the aisle at 2 different tables. At the end of our meal, as the room got more crowded, a woman who appeared to be the manager/hostess came by and loudly told me to move my chair as I was blocking the aisle. She said nothing to the two men whose chairs were at least as far out if not farther out than mine. This was very offensive to me and ruined the entire experience. Her comments were offensive and embarrassing and I found it questionable they were only said to me and not the two gentlemen. Like I said, great food . But the dinner was ruined.

An after concert dinner, that ended a perfect night. Every dish was shared and every dish was exceptional. A NY Strip done just the way we wanted, the veggies and pasta sides were great. Our server was there when we needed him, and very efficient. Will be back.

Everything was good except no one was at the hostess stand for a while & I couldn’t be seated until my friend arrived - my friend who had to drive around & around for parking. I hadn’t read their warning about limited parking. I am older & had been standing all day so a seat would have helped my back. The bartender was fabulous & welcoming & our server was outstanding & friendly. We were surprised that the duck for 2 was already off the menu as we were seated in dining room for which reservations are required and were placing our menu by 5:30pm. I enquired & was told that the downstairs bar, which is first come, is full menu. That’s wonderful but if you’ve made time to plan & reserve a dinner table it would be nice to have the full menu available - especially at 5:30pm. That said the steak & lobster we were “forced to order”😇 were divine as was our entire dinner!
