Success! Thanks for posting your review of Branzino Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Very pleased

Went to Branaino's for lunch during Philly Restaurant week. All te appetisera were very good. We had the eggplant rolatini, the broccoli rabe with sausage and the buffalo mozzarella. For the entrees, we had the bowtie pasta with shrimp and crabmeat (Excellent) and the veal and chicken ravioli (also quite good.) The nice feature was that Branzino's allowed you to order from their entire menu, unlike many other Phil... view more

Great time!

I went to Branzino Saturday night with a group of 8, we had a 9:30 reservation. We were seated within minutes of arriving with no problems. I had the mussles to start, and they were amazing! The sauce they were in was sooo good. For dinner I had the Bass- again, delicious!!\r
The service and the food were both great! The only real drawback was that you can only split the bill up on 2 cards, which is normall

loved it!

My girlfriend and I dined here on Valentine's day (a very busy night for restaurants, one of the nights that often lead to poor service and cold food) . We were seated immediately and when I requested another table (because we felt that we were in the middle of too much activity ie. near the door and aisle where the waitstaff busied themselves with food and orders), we were graciously shown to another, and much more ... view more

Service was awful. I am not sure where they are from, but apparently where ever it is they don't know how to be nice or accommodate their guests. This was the absolute worst dinning experience of my life and I am pretty easy to please. Since I work in a restaurant myself I very often understand the challenges. The service was horrible and was accompanied by an attitude of ""oh well, screw you."" I can't ever in ... view more

Will not go back! Rude hostess!

We never even sat down to eat. We were at the restaurant on time for our 8 PM reservation. The hostess told us that the table was not ready yet and it would take about 15 minutes (there is no where to stand in the restaurant while waiting and it was freezing outside). The reservation was made for 5 originally, but one more wanted to come, so I asked if they could squeeze one more at the table. I looked at the tab... view more

Nice menu selection

Ive seen some negative reviews for this restaurant, but my experience was fairly pleasent. We were a bit early for our reservation but we were seated immediately. The server came over fairly promptly to let us know that they were short staffed that evening and appreciated our patience. Our server that evening was very helpful and we didnt have to wait all that long for anything. The osso bucco was very tasty and ... view more

Just go to La Viola.

Ordered the endive and walnut salad... It came with 1 walnut. The squash ravioli at 19 bucks was undercooked and underseasoned. It was homemade, but it should be. the veal scallopine came with 3 tiny pieces of veal that were smothered with white onions. No originality and just a ripoff. The hazelnut gelato was really good, and the service was decent.

mediocre food bad service.

Tried this place on a Saturday night for the first time with great expectations....very DISAPPOINTED. We enjoyed the appetizer dishes of mussels in a garlic tomato sauce and bluefin tuna and goat cheese pasta; however, there was a 45 minute delay between finishing the appetizers and our main dishes being served. We got the branzino and a fish special. Not worth the wait. My dish was literally dripping in butter, desp... view more

Top of my list!

Branzino is my favorite restaurant in Philadelphia. It is rare to be able to eat several courses and have each and every one be perfect. It is also rare in downtown Philadelphia to be able to use a credit card at a B&B.\r
There is no corkage fee. I highly recommend reservations.\r
I have been eating out every night in downtown Philadelphia since last August. When people ask for my top recommendation I do not ha

Apparently the idea that the customer is always right does not apply to this restaurant. My friend had made reservations for 7:30 on a Friday night, and when we got to the restaurant they said that they had us down for 5:30. My friend even showed them her confirmation e-mail saying that the reservations were for 7:30. Instead of being apologetic and offering us the next available table, the host staff was extremely r... view more
