I stopped here while shopping in Philly hoping for a small plate and some wine. I ended up on a rooftop sipping a Negoni and eating some of the best Poke this side of Honolulu. What a lovely afternoon! I will visit again when I am in town, it was perfect.

Friday lunch - Food is a little fancy for picky kids but everything we had was tasty. Service was a bit slow and the restaurant wasn't very busy - could have just been the server we got. I would visit again if in downtown Philly. The bathroom situation was weird though. Elevator to basement and then only 1 small bathroom... More

Just walking by and saw the huge olive on the side of the building and the cool decor and my 9 year old said "let's eat there"! The kale beet and goat cheese salad was fabulous. Service was quick and friendly. We sat upstairs in the hanging bamboo chairs! Portions are large and prices are decent.

Drinks were good but wait service was poor. Bartender came to the rescue and was excellent!!! Had the French soup dumplings and cheese steak egg roll appys.... More

Food was great but service was not the best. It took too much time and waiter messed up our receipts.

Food was great! Salads are big enough to share. Probably the nicest atmosphere for a restaurant that I've ever been in. Four stars instead of five though because there is a wait due to service being slow. Servers are friendly, but the wait time for tables could be reduced if servers were a bit speedier.

Upon the suggestion of Jordan at the Palomar Hotel seven of us ventured to the Continental Mid-Town on a cold and windy Saturday night. They were unable to take a reservation for us as it was last minute. We followed in two additional parties of seven and got to hear the Host let them know that they were full but... More

We shared a salad while visiting with a friend. There was a good selection of salads. We chose a spinach salad. It was large enough for two and very tasty. The place was very busy with a waiting list. We were seated quickly enough. Service was great and there is an extensive menu, if we had been hungrier. It was... More
