Will keep this brief.

Writing this review while savoring the remaining chicken liver mousse from our amazing 5 course tasting menu last night.

From the impeccable table service to the finely crafted libations, a memorable gustatory experience all around.

Can't wait to return.

We love dining in the city and each and every location has it's own personality, Fond is no different. What is different is that even though the restaurant is typical small you never felt like you were sitting on the person next to you or behind you or listening to their conversations...wonderful set up.
Now to the food at fond, the choices were as diverse as each of the 4 of us' interest, duck heart, pate, pasta, soup and that was only the appetizer options. The main course was equally as diverse. Everyone ordered something different and everything was a taste treat.
The waiter was attentive and there was no rush on their part to turn the table. A wonderful evening. Thanks Fond.

Wow! Our Best Philly Foodie Friends suggest this excellent, little restaurant still in the Passyunk neighborhood. It is convenient to Vallet Parking near the "Fountain." Our initial cocktails were prepared to perfection with a smooth transition to a Mendoza Red by the Glass. The grilled Radicchio with figs and Goat Cheese was excellent. The Pork Belly, Braised Short Ribs and Skate Wing completed our entree selections. Saving the best for desert the Milk Chocolate Ice Cream was over the Top. Do make a reservation as far out as possible.
Cheers!

When people ask me where they should go for dinner in Philadelphia, this is always in my top 10. The tasting menu is a foodie's delight. The wine list is carefully cultivated, with off the beaten path selections. The atmosphere feels cosy and trendy at the same time. The service is top notch. Highly recommended.
