Excellent restaurant. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable regarding the food preparations. Food was innovative, unique, extremely well prepared. We like to try new things so there is always a new restaurant to taste. FSS will be revisited, recommended and reflected upon. Just that good.

Every detail was perfect. Our server, Andrew, was professional, knowledgeable and clearly dedicated to making our experience a wonderful one. The food was delicious, and all four of us agreed, having partaken of much of the menu! Three days later I am still thinking about Friday, Saturday, Sunday and hope to return soon.

The Good: Everything was pleasant, table was ready on time, food was well prepared along with presentation, service was professional and very nice quaint environment.

The Could be better: Food delivery time, they move food out quickly. You may want to specify if you are in a rush or looking to take your time and enjoy your meal and conversation. Servers are well trained in their choice of words which was impressive, but can feel like you are buying a car. Menu could use a little more description on the items.

Overall, very good place and will go again and again. and like some of the harder to get into restaurants in Center City, they have a lively bar you can sit at and enjoy the same meal.

We had a wonderful night and delicious meal at Friday Saturday Sunday. The waitstaff was excellent. Tim was our server and was attentive, well-informed and knew exactly what to recommend in terms of quantity for the two of us. We shared the mussel toast, roasted potato gnocchi, octopus for appetizers. We had the dry aged duck for two which was fabulous. Our reservation was at 5:45 and there are only a couple of ducks served per night so if you want the duck, go early. We had the brownie for dessert - the crowd pleaser as Tim said. My wife wanted chocolate though if we were to have two desserts, we would have tried the panna cotta. Wine list was also excellent and per glass price was comparable to a bottle so that was a nice plus if you want to try different wines. The second floor dining is not overcrowded and very comfortable. We are looking forward to returning.

Delicious! Got the beef tartare, octopus, and brussel sprouts for the appetizers and split it between three people. For the main course I got the lobster and it was so good! Of course we saved room for dessert - got the brownie per the waiter's recommendation and we enjoyed every bit of it.

I think they change their menu every so often so I'll be back to try out some more goodies!

My boyfriend and I had been wanting to hit this place up for awhile and we are so glad we finally did. Everything we ordered was exceptional and the service was outstanding. Our favorites were the mussel toast and the gnocchi which were both to die for. It is the perfect place for an intimate celebration or special evening out and we will most definitely be returning soon!

This is nothing like the old Fri, Sat, Sun. There is nothing wrong with that, but I am surprised they kept the name. I guess it was for marketing. Anyway, we figured we would try the new place due to the high praise on OpenTable. We were a bit disappointed.

Here are the pros and cons:

Wine List - Decent, but 3x the list price like most CC establishments. 2x is plenty and less greedy.

Format: Small Plates, except for Entrees

Appetizer - Shrimp Cocktail in a mustard sauce - Good

Veggies - Brussel Sprouts and Carrots. Good flavor, but not hot.

Pasta -
Gnocchi - Cooked well, but hardly any flavor.
Agnolotti w/Oxtail - Tasty, but not hot.

Entrees -
NY Strip - Cooked perfectly, decent sauce. Not hot.
Seabass - Cooked well, but plain.

Overall - For over $300 (including $100 in drinks) I can find better. Average at best.

I think this place has potential, but serving cold food is not a great start. Also, serve more flavorful dishes.

I miss the old place. Simple, inexpensive, but great food. There is a reason it lasted 30 years.

What a wonderful experience overall. The food and service was just stellar and the ambiance is old-world charming. This is definitely one of those special places that you want to revisit time and again. It was my first time dining there. I usually just have amazing drinks made by Paul- who is quite talented. Definitely make a reservation as the upstairs dining area isn’t big. This restaurant is easily my top five in Philadelphia.

Our server suggested delicious wine to accompany our meal. Service was attentive, but not overly so. The meal was paced well and we did not feel rushed despite being an early reservation.

First time. Overall great place and meal. Very tasty dishes for sharing. Arctic char amazing. Duck beautifully done. Some dishes overly complex. Interesting cocktails - perhaps to fussy for the purest. Small place. We ate early and had full access to menu. Got noisy later in the evening and a few items disappeared from menu ( duck). Definitely on our come back soon list.

This was our second time at FSS, and we were blown away again. I wanted to eat EVERYTHING that passed our table. We ordered octopus, the chicken liver, two pastas and a vegetable. I'm obsessed with their pasta and would order every pasta on the menu if I could. Everything we ordered was delicious. Our server too was top notch (though, I don't know if he told us his name). Super engaged and attentive and professional and friendly all in one... just the way you'd want a server to be. Highly recommended.

Although bottom line can quickly add up, the saying "you get what you pay for" definitely rings true at FSS. I was in a group of four that ordered 3 small plates: Mussel Toast (I'd love that recipe!), Roasted Carrots (like no roasted carrots I've ever tasted) and Charred Cauliflower (touched all the right notes, just outstanding). The friends ordered the New York Strip Steak and Halibut and just raved. I ordered the Buccatini with Squid & Mussels enrobed in an onion confit. It was wonderful and I'd definitely HAVE to order it again. Only negative was noise level. It wasn't so loud as to prevent conversation, but I prefer less.
