The food was very good! Everything from apps to dessert!
Haven't been there in years. It didn't disappoint!
It was an incredible evening. The food was excellent and the girls serving us were outstanding.
Very good food!! Parking is not easy.
Enjoyed the atmosphere and service, the food was a huge disappointment.
Very good food. Attentive service.
Staff is first class
Very enjoyable evening
Can’t wait to go back!
Richie has been at this for forty years
Felt rushed. Food came out less than 10 minutes after ordering. Waitress was knowledgeable, but kept “suggesting” more expensive dishes/wine. Tons of Italian restaurants in South Philly which prove a better value.
Excellent food and service as usual!!
Everyone loved their meal!!
I’ve never had a bad meal here, EVER! My favorite restaurant in Philly!
First class service ....always a consistent dinner
We always have a wonderful experience when dining here. We love the ambiance and the food exceptional. We always come a bit earlier to have a drink at the upstairs bar. Anthony makes a great Martini! Our server, Angela, was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, and very efficient. We will definitely be back!
GREAT NIGHT, thanks Saloon staff! We had a perfect Italian meal!
This is a beautiful place with a great interior. Any veal dish is the mainstay of the restaurant. We loved the appetizers. Of the four of us each dish was fantastic. Our main complaint would be the noise level. We were seated on the second floor next to a table of +12 people. They were so loud and rude. We couldn't hear our waitress, nor could she hear us. She apologized and said the loud table had got their check and would be leaving soon but if we wanted she could try to find us another available table. So glad she did, because they didn't leave for at least 1.5 hours. About 10 minutes after we had finished our entrees.
Once we were moved to another room, the whole experience including the food, drink, and service was great. I think that all restaurants should make an effort to mention to loud rude guests that they need to lower their volume and if the topic of discussion is inappropriate then change it or they will be asked to leave.
Always a great experience coming to the saloon. Excellent service and food! Our go to for special occasions!
Close to perfection
Bartender Frank R. Best in the city
The Saloon is the real deal. Always delivers. Authentic Italian through and through. You can’t go wrong with any menu selection, so I won’t go into detail on my meal. The one issue can be noise levels are high. But the energy is good. Enjoy a nice red, some homemade pasta and a veal or fish special.
Neighborhood stalwart on edge of Italian Market. Surprised parking lots were full at 530pm and the restaurant was empty. We were fortunate to find on-street parking nearby. Lively bar scene with holiday cheer. Surprisingly clean restroom. Dining: Fair house Prosecco. Nice sesame dusted crusty ample bread with a pesto offered on side. Nice touch. Excellent octopus salad special. Tough rubbery veal. Over cooked mushy ravioli of the day. If we had had more time, we would have returned the entrees for another try. The kitchen was anything but busy when our orders came in. Consumed because we were hungry and on way to catch a flight. Disappointed. Overpriced for food quality.
We’re trying to hold onto just the excellent octopus salad memory from this visit.
lobster francaise was the best thing i ever ate in my life!
The appetizer special was excellent. The Veal chop was not so good. Too fatty and not as flavorful as it should be.
The food was delicious & the service was very good but It was quite noisy.
The restaurant was lovely and the food was great. Service was good. But when you go to a restaurant with another couple and you can’t even have a conversation because the noise level is so high that you can’t hear each other talk it’s not a place I will go back to.
When there is a large party of people they should be put in a closed door dinning room. The manager should have asked them to tone it down . Very disappointed.
Food and service was excellent-I had the Scotish salmom stuffed with crabmeat - obe of the best things I have ever eaten and I eat out a minimum of 3x a week!
ive gone there for over 40 ys special occasions, always was a favorite of mine. I was a bit disappointed this time in the food, the service was great the place great but the food has slipped. the quantity was lower than usual and at its price was disappointing. the lobster franchisee was miserly, barely covering the middle of the plate with not one side provided with it at over $40. the veal chop 12 oz was 3 mouthfuls and I had to pay for one side of pasta. the 2 veal dishes were adequate but came with no sides of pasta at well over $20. really how much does a few forkfuls of pasta cost?
Love dining at Saloon! The food is incredible, the atmosphere is classically South Philly, and the servers are great, we loved Gabrielle. Definitely not cheap, but worth it for a special occasion. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Been going to Saloon since 1980 and never had a bad meal still my favorite place to dine Gabriele was amazing server
It was my birthday and it was wonderful.
Not a great value for the money. Overpriced $150 for 2 drinks 1 per person. Split salads 2 main courses. No coffee no dessert. Would not recommend
The team works wonderfully together to give a great guest experience. The food is delicious, the wine list extensive. Will definitely be back and have already recommended the Saloon to friends.
Excellent good but pricey
Always incredible food drinks and service completely amazing dinners every time we celebrate a special occasion at the Saloon. Thanks for always making our dinners memorable
It's always a great experience. Good food, good wine and friendly service.
Great food. Great service. Have never had a bad meal at The Saloon. It's a bit pricey, but the food is excellent.
Always great for the special occasion... anniversary or birthday
The Saloon never disappoints. It is managed and run with all of its staff committed to it's excellence. They use only the finest ingredients and take no shortcuts. I highly recommend anyone interested in going out to lunch or dinner that wants an outstanding dining experience to try the Saloon. Philadelphia's finest Italian restaurant.
My family was there to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We all enjoyed the food , the service and the staff.
This place is consistently one of the best restaurants in Philly
First time back at the Saloon since we moved away. Nothing has really changed. Sat at the bar for a cocktail before dinner. Bartender was terrific. Had a smile on his face the whole time we were there, and made a point to small talk with not just the locals, but out-of-towners like us. Great time.
Our server Alyssa was beyond awesome. She made our dining experience one to remember. Charming and helpful with some advise: attentive but yet not intruding. Big smile.
Overall experience was beyond fantastic. Highly recommend this stop.
Great meal. Everything was wonderful - the ambience, the service, the food. Thank you!
