The food was out of this world. Had chosen the fish and chips. The piece of fish was enormous that i coukd not finish it. The atmosphere was very pretty. The service was top notch.

This is a great gastropub. Excellent food, great cocktails, good selection of beer and friendly staff. Great British dishes on the menu. The chef must be very talented.

We looked forward all day to dinner at Dandelion. We had a reservation and we're seated right away in a cozy table near the hearth. Drinks were fine, bread not warm. The Welsh rarebit appetizer was disappointing. A thick slab of bread with dried cheese...More

Parking in Philly is a nightmare, as in any other big city. Try the BestParking app or website. You can look and see what public garages there are near the restaurant. Be aware that city traffic will be tough - you probably... More

There is no particular dress code. You can always feel comfortable if you go neat and clean with clothes in good repair. I always like the very casual but very expensive look....
