Wonderful wait staff, fast friendly and attentive
Best Veal Parmigiana I’ve ever had
The Saloon, remains The Saloon. As simple as that sounds, it is not easy to build and maintain a level of excellence that The Saloon has managed to do. I am always amazed at the consistency of the service, from everyone on the staff. I'm beginning to suspect that they always assign their best waitress to my table. The food............I had the Veal Picante, The most tender Veal I've ever had, I could have used a plastic fork to eat it. Prices are very reasonable too. I'll be back soon.
This is a true Philadelphia classic and even after all of these years is still one of the most outstanding restaurants in the city. The ambience and servic are second to none. The beef braciole and Dover sole were excellent and their desserts are to die for. They also make great cocktails.
Had an excellent experience celebrating a special occasion at Saloon. The servers went above and beyond to make the honored guest feel special.
Very unique restaurant, great vibe. Will definitely return.
My family has been wanting to come to The Saloon for years now and on our first visit we were not disappointed! The food was delicious, the service was great and the ambiance was just as expected. We will definitely be coming back!
Our waitress was the best. Forgot her name but she wore an A necklace. Was amazed she remembered the 20 minutes worth of specials. Great food great place.
The meal was too expensive. The 4 langostino appy at $45 was over the top. It was a special and had we known it was that pricey wouldnt have ordered it. It was tasty ill say that!
Great place, you get the feel it is run by folks who know what they are doing. They are very professional and accommodating. The food was excellent and the room is interesting.
Fun place but definitely expensive. Only one bartender at peak time on a Friday night! How does that make sense?
best food best service the food is consistant love it there
The service is absolutely outstanding and the food is always to die for. It was as busy as we have ever seen it, and the noise level was very high. Still had a wonderful evening though.
Food and drinks were fantastic. Great live music. Waitress was very snarky...rolled eyes...confrontational w/ other waiters/waitress’.
Great place. Been there many times. The only negative is they need to change the menu. They have had the same items for at least 10 years or more
One of the most delicious meals we’ve had!
I haven’t been to The Saloon in 20 years and it was as delish as I remembered. Love the old school vibe and service. Everything was delish—from escarole soup to ravioli to branzino, veal chop and veal Parmesan. Our only regret: we were too full to have dessert.
The Saloon has been around for over 50 years and continues to be my favorite Italian restaurant. Besides the food their wait staff is highly trained. Their menu is diverse and their desserts are wonderful.
The amount of specials they have is amazing. Every time I come here I order one of the specials and it never disappoints. I got the scallops special this time with gluten free pasta and it was amazing. We started with the prawns appetizer which was also delicious. I wish I could come to this restaurant every week, 100% recommend.
This place is crazy good! Consistently great food, service, and ambience. Tried octopus salad to start. Never had octopus before, but it was delicious. I had veal chop topped with crabmeat and served with mashed potato; outstanding. Sauce awesome. My wife had the bronzino topped with crabmeat as well. Both dishes with large chunks of crab. Excellent. Even the bread with the pesto/olive oil delish. No room for dessert. A bottle of Hesh Chardonnay complemented the meal exquisitely!
Hands down one the best dining experiences you will find in the Philadelphia and surrounding area.
Loved this restaurant. GREAT service. Delicious food. Would definitely recommend and go back there
Great food and atmosphere . Always an excellent experience. Wait staff very friendly
Waiter was not as attentive and switched new server without letting us know...We watied a longtime for any server to apprach table at the end of our meal...Do not make reservations at 9:30 or so....It looked like all the waitstaff were doing side clenaup and not attentive to the tables after 10:30 or so
Love the Saloon. The veal chop special was the best I’ve had. The food and service and excellent. Sure, there are newer, shiner, more hip places in the city but there’s a reason the Saloon has been around for over 50 years!
Can’t really say much more than “just perfect”. The restaurant was really hopping tonight, but we were seated promptly and had drinks within 5 minutes of sitting. The food was outrageously delicious as usual. We’re never rushed and that’s the way it should be! Just great service, ambiance and food! A+
Great experience all around !!!
Amazing dinner, great wine, what a great spot!
Always a great time at the Saloon! Table for 9 and all 9 had a blast!
Excellent food and service
Great food, service, ambiance! Love the atmosphere here combining excellent food with high end neighborhood get together. Service was impecable
It was my birthday dinner and I was happy to be able to sit at the upstairs bar thus visit! The Saloon has been a staple in its neighborhood for many years and I like that it never changes along with the staff!
There are so many places to eat in philly. And honestly this one isn’t worth the money. The food is so-so and the prices are astronomical for the amount/quality of food you get. The Italian mafia vibe is cool, but other than that nothing to write home about.
Old world style, a real gem in the Philadelphia Food scene, simply the best, food is off the charts fantastic, our server Alexis was awesome, we have never had a bad experience at the saloon, this place is a real Philadelphia treasure.
The Saloon is always one of my favorite places for a special occasion. Staff is always friends, ambiance cozy, food delicious.
The food was excellent. Great waitstaff along with wonderful ambiance…
It was fantastic! The food, the service, dessert! My fiancé and I had the best valentine dinner date! Perfect weather as well. I would recommend others to this place.
Great food,service and atmosphere!
Truly one of, if not THE best, restaurant in Philly!
Amy is an excellent server. She knew the menu and specials without any hesitation, made great recommendations and took care of us.
Best restaurant in Philly!!!
