Bad over priced food Trying to be fancy but just a dump with a bad atmosphere I would go only if you like wasting money and like bad food

This was an outstanding experience, everything was done very creatively and the food was absolutely delicious. Farm to table with extraordinary skill, and very accommodating to food allergy issues.

A slow Sunday, so we and a few others had the place to ourselves. Bartenders were so attentive, knew their stuff and provided tastes of wines before we committed. I'm not a cocktail person, but now I am sold thanks to them. Excellent recommendations and cocktail construction. Appetizers, salads, chicken and agnolotti were superb (wish the latter was a larger... More

We were recently in Philadelphia for 2.5 weeks while a family member was in the hospital. While the trips back and forth from the hospital sucked we were lucky enough to learn that our family member lives on the same block as this gem. It soon became our home away from home. We visited the bar 4 (I think) times... More

Great place!!! Farm to table menu. The bread and tomatoes were very good. The apple and butternut squash soup was out of this world. What's melding of flavors. Loved it. We split that dish and they brought it out in two bowls. We followed that with a pasta dish. It had squash in it as well along with some blue... More

This is a delicious and fun restaurant in Queen Village near the Delaware River in Philadelphia. Southwark is only a block away from South Street. It has an old style feel to it with a long and winding oak bar as you enter the restaurant. The bar service is fantastic. The bartender will make you a customized cocktail or you... More

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at! You can tell the food was prepared with much thought and care! The flavors blend together so well and make your mouth water! We had a lamb dish that was amazing! My family is not that big on lamb, but they went crazy for it! Cannot say enough... More

We tried this place on a whim because we couldn't get in to Vernick or Talulas. I'm glad we did. They had good selection of wines, and the waiter was knowledgeable about them as well as his rye and bourbon selections. Starters: The cheeses were great, they had a nice artisanal and local selection. The hummus has a light lemony... More

The new owners of Southwark have really done something impressive with this classic Philadelphia gem. They are also obviously really put a lot of thought into what was lacking in the Philadelphia food scene. The chef is putting out food that cannot be found elsewhere in town, wonderful handmade pasta's, house made cheeses and breads, some of the best fish... More

Stopped here for drinks. Service and cocktails were top-notch. Would definitely return. Great place for drinks, small bites or full dinner.
