    We traveled from the Jersey Shore to Philadelphia for restaurant week. It was advertised on on the Center City Restaurant Week website that the restaurant was participate in lunch for the week. When we asked for the menu for restaurant week we were informed that because it was Saturday we couldn't get that menu. We decided that after traveling for over an hour that we would just stay for the meal. The cocktails took close to minutes and my wife drink was wrong a coso was delivered and she ordered a lemon drop martini. The bar was also out of Stateside vodka. A Philly vodka? The staff was pleasant the food was ok. I would have been informed on the website the restaurant was not fully participating as advertised advertised.

    Came in for restaurant week lunch (as advertised on Restaurant week website). We were told that they only participated for dinner. We decided to stay for brunch since we had already sat down. “Waygu” burger was burnt, both patties and bun. Mom ordered toast with her breakfast that came late and was told it would be on the house. They didn’t take it off the check. Take your business elsewhere.

    Food was pretty good, they had just a very standard brunch menu. Drinks were very good, but took ~25 minutes to come out. We actually got the drinks after our food was out. But it could have just been that particular day the bar was backed up with orders.

    This is my second visit to this location. We had a reservation and waited quite some time to be seated. Unfortunately, we were sitting near the entrance and it was very cold out and would’ve preferred one of the large tables in the back of the facility. We also waited quite some time for our drinks. Our server was excellent and he took very good care of us. We do like this restaurant and we go again.

    Pretty Darn Good Breakfast For a Hotel Lobby Restaurant! I tend to stay away from hotel restaurants, but Square 1682 was a pleasant surprise! We were staying at Hotel Palomar and stopped into Square for drinks after a show at The Met. When it came time to have breakfast the next morning, we decided not to brave the 10-degrees wind chill and try Square for breakfast. We had the Philly Special (roast pork) take on Eggs Benedict, as we're both from the region. It was good! I also had a side of chicken sausage and grits, topped off with a Blood Mary. If you have to use a hotel restaurant for breakfast, you can do a lot worse than Square 1682!

    Khalif was amazing! From the front door to the table! He was able to suggestively sell items in the menu with a smile on his face! His energy was amazing! We noticed that he was thee ONLY sever that night but that did not change his attitude, it made him grind even harder! This man is a jewel for your restaurant and we hope to see him again! I know he will remember us “the brother and sister look alikes” LOL!

    We arrived at 1:45 pm for reservations and was seated at 1:50pm. 15 minutes passed before a waiter arrived. Ordered a bottle of wine which took 10 minutes and the waiter placed on the table with the cork in bottle but never poured. Food order, omelette, was taken and arrived cold and overcooked. Never again will I go here.

    We ordered a yogurt parfait which was initially charged on our check but never served. Was only taken off when we prompted the server. Service was slow even though it wasn't busy. Food served was cold and bagels were partially burnt. Food taste was ok. Better go to other places fir value of money. Manager did try and offer the yogurt parfait for free, but only after the check was cashed, and we had given written feedback on the bill. We didn't take up on the offer since we'd already left. Will not recommend and won't visit again.

    The food & service were amazing. I think they are going for an industrial look but if I hadn’t pre-booked this, I would have assumed it wasn’t good by the look of it and walked out. It doesn’t represent the level of food they serve. With that said, it was totally worth it and I am glad we stayed. Each dish was better than the last. The servers were very fun and it felt like they enjoyed being at work. A manager checked on our table. It was very clean and there was a great wine selection. Highly recommend. Try the duck wings!

    Service was amazing and started the minute we walked in. The hostess could not have been nicer, the waiter was sweet, and accommodating and we never waited. My food included duck wings and waffles: I have them every time and they are scrumptious!! No complaints from my other two guests. Great location, ambiance, and food!!!

    Came on Thanksgiving night, and as soon as we walked in the host was super sweet and very helpful as it was only her 2nd day working there. We got sat at a table by the window, and waited about 10-15 min for a server. Once Sharee (not sure if that’s how it’s spelled) arrived to our table with no introduction, no questions about us wanting drinks, not even asking us how our night is decides to start with “are y’all ready to order?”… Now, from the minute I walked in she was marching around the restaurant with a balled up face and an attitude and her being our server further proved my point. I gave her our drink order, and our starter order (cornbread) she looks at me and asks, “um.. is that it?” With such a negative demeanor. We hadn’t even gotten a chance to review the prefixed menu. Assuming she felt the vibe of us noticing her disgusting attitude, 2 minutes later our server was changed to Sebastian. Sebastian was such an awesome server/bartender, made us feel very welcomed, and rectified our negative experience. I work in the service industry, and have worked many holidays taking tables and I understand it can be frustrating when all you want to do is be home with your family; but there is no reason to interact with your tables how sharee was. It bothered my wife and I so much, we almost got up and left. I’m giving this place 3 stars because of the service in the beginning but besides that the hostess, manager, Sebastian, and the food was a 10/10.

    Thanksgiving dinner was very mediocre. The turkey was tough as leather. Even with a steak knife I couldn't cut it. Saw a lot of unsanitary food practices in the open kitchen. Ice cream was served melted. Not worth the money. Our server was great and he was the highlight of the evening. Will never return.

    If you plan on eating I would find another venue. I ordered full meal with appetizer, sides and an entry. The entry arrived 1st and it was the wrong steak. When the returned 20 minutes later the appetizer and side has still not arrived. It was not until I finished the steak did the appetizer and side arrive and they were cold. When it came to pay the presented the check and I gave them my CC yet when the bill came to sign it was for 2X as much as the original meal. They had billed me someone else's dinner. It was a complete fiasco, I can only recommend you find another venue if you plan on eating a meal.

    We had an enjoyable evening at Square 1682 despite the fact that the menu had significantly changed from our last visit which was before COVID. For several years we had gone to Square 1682 every time we traveled to Philadelphia because of their menu. Each time we were delighted with the food and often invited friends to join us. Unfortunately, on this visit none of main entrees were interesting.🙁 so, we ate tapas style. We ordered several small plates. The honey buttered cornbread, duck wings, shrimp cocktail and seasonal flat bread. The seasonal flat bread hit a wrong note but we really enjoyed the other three dishes. The White Haven Sauvignon Blanc was delicious. Service was excellent. I recommend Square 1682 to folks who are not expecting the dishes of their earlier years.

    Poor service. Waited 10-minutes for table to be cleared even though tables were available. Once seated, we had to ask for coffee and water after 5-mins of no one acknowledging us. And, there was only 5 other parties being served. Odd.
