Steakhouse | Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia

Loved this place. Visiting from Houston so I wanted a really nice place for a date night. However, I didn’t like the fact there wasn’t valet parking..or maybe there was and I didn’t notice but I doubt it. Also it’s extremelyyyy dark inside. No where to really get good pics. Service was superb, very friendly staff. Food was ok. My steak was medium well on half..well done on the other. And lastly the whole male/female in one bathroom, but door was labeled accordingly was new to me. Maybe that’s a Philly thing but I’d never seen it before so it caught me off guard. So be prepared. Other than that very nice place. More

This is a very expensive restaurant without any flash, bells, or whistles that serves the best sushi in the city. Portion sizes are small but the quality of the fish and creativity of the chef makes it worth the cost. I would not recommend for anyone remotely on a budget or you will leave hungry but rather someone who is willing to spend $100 a head to have one of the tastiest meals of your life. More

I eat there often. It has a reliable menu, though expensive. Noise is very loud. Generally satisfied. They do need to have less cutesy deserts, something more basic with less sugar: a decent pie, e.g., for those of us who want to live longer! More

We continue to explore the menu. I had the seafood salad appetizer and the fried oysters for my entree (they are listed under hot appetizer). My husband had the house salad, and the bulgiula (beef, mushrooms, peppers) entree, and he loved it. Always a good meal here and we have tried a fair number of the dishes at this point. Never have we been disappointed. More

Food was very good although limited menu. Cocktails excellent. Service was good, not great. At first our server hovered and then disappeared. (They need a happy medium.)

Discover Rittenhouse Square

Bordered by gleaming high-rises and featuring a well-manicured park, Rittenhouse Square sits in the midst of Philly cheesesteak territory, but you'll also find neighborhood restaurants offering custom shaved-beef creations alongside lighter vegetarian options. More formal Italian cuisine is also traditional in this section of town, and it's a nod to the immigrants who came over in the 18th and 19th centuries. Here, you’ll find everything from tagliatelle, gnocchetti and exotic raviolis to veal tenderloin and polenta. If you’re hungry for a snack and the weather’s cold, consider a warm soft pretzel from a street vendor. If it’s warm, opt for a classic Italian water ice or a gelato sampler.
