Philly's Platinum Grille

 4 star(s)  (05/14/2010)
“My friends and I enjoy Friday night happy hour. We usually have appetizers and drinks which are great. We prefer the bar area and can get a good table if we get there early enough. Except for the same four old men who are there every Friday evening sitting at the bar for hours, not eating and dri... ”

Philly's Platinum Grille

 5 star(s)  (06/28/2009)
“Just came from a fabulous event hosted at Philly's Platinum Grille in Philadelphia, Pa. I can't say enough about the delicious food and the courteous staff. I also had the pleasure of speaking with the lovely owner Rhonda who was the ultimate host. All of the food was exceptional. I dined on col... ”

Paradigm Restaurant & Bar

 1 star(s)  (01/31/2008)
“The plan to go to Dolce / Paradigm began with high ambitions. I invited in friends from out of town to celebrate New Year's Eve. We reserved a table and I paid $450 in advance (this price included two bottle service bottles). Upon arriving at the club, they would not seat us at our reserved table... ”

City Tavern

 5 star(s)  (08/12/2007)
“Excellent!! The food and the ambience couldn't have been any better. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive too. I would highly recommend to anyone who loves excellent food along with a truly historical experience.”

Blue Bear

 5 star(s)  (08/04/2007)
“Great food and service. Love that we could shoot a game of pool and catch some music afterwards. Weekends are great to bring the family. Before 3pm kids meals are 1/2 off!”

Rose Tattoo Café

 4 star(s)  (02/06/2003)
“Terrific! It's a bit noisy if you're trying to carry on a serious conversation... but the setting is intimate and food is terrific.”

Rose Tattoo Café

 4 star(s)  (08/29/2002)
“I enjoyed the seafood ravioli special.”


 4 star(s)  (01/07/2001)
“After visiting the Art Museum, we were looking for a place for an early dinner. We found Bridgid's with a Belgian beer happy hour. The bar wasn't smoky, it was friendly, and the beers were fabulous. We moved into the back for a fairly early dinner. Finally . . . we have found a true bistro! Bri... ”


 4 star(s)  (08/22/2000)
“Tucked away on 24th street, this place is the best and I find myself returning, even though I try to hit a different place regularly. It has a style all of its own since the renovations. The food is delicious and the prices are unbelievable. One word, what you save on food, you can easily exhaust on... ”

Fountain Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (11/18/1999)
“If you are looking for excellent food and superior service, then the Fountain is where you want to go. Be prepared to spend a small fortune. I recently visited the Fountain and with top shelf cocktails, wine, champagne, and a six course meal I spent about $200 per person. Worth every penny!”
