Expensive and That's It

Nice and clean, we had good service. And all four of us agreed the food was nothing to write home about. I had crab soup which was bland and large crabs in oil and garlic. I never had this before. It was not flavored in oil and garlic it was soaked in oil with little garlic flavor, little of any flavor. If you like bland food this is the place to go.

DiNardo’s has the best crustaceans in Philadelphia

There’s just something different about the seafood here. Located a short cab ride from Downtown Philly, is DiNardo’s. A non-descript, red brick building with a wooden sign swaying in the breeze points to the front entrance of this establishment. The huge crab on their sign hints that maybe you should try the crab. The Blue Claw crabs are flown in everyday from the Gulf Coast. Unlike their cousins in the Chesapeake, t... view more

Tourist Trap!!

Would not go back - this is a tourist trap - and that is how we were treated by our waiter - $100 for two people who had one beer each with dinner - WAY over priced, Fabric on seat in booth was ripped; water glasses are plastic; silverware right out of Waffle House. Most entrees at $25-plus. Will never, ever go back!

Not what I expected

We went there for our first date night in almost a year (after baby). The staff was nice (the inside definately doesn't match the outside as another reviewer put it), but the food didn't sit right with us for the rest of the night. The crab cakes aren't firm with any lump meat, but mushy and stringy. I had 2 mussels out of 4 that had grit when I bit down. The calamari was good. We'd like to try just getting the ... view more

DiNardo's- the crabs were delicious

What a great place. I started going to DiNardo's about 6 months ago. My girlfriend took me their because she knew how much I enjoyed crabs(I am born and raised from Baltimore). Although I LOVE my Chesepeake Bay crabs, I have never had a better crab. I am not sure where they get them, but I would kill for that recipe. My girlfriend usually winds up getting steak, which she claims is as good as any where (I go for the ... view more

AMAZING FOOD FAR ABOVE EXPECTATIONS

I had low expectations for this restaurant after reading some of the reviews on this site, but was completely impressed! The food is just so good in comparison to other comparable restaurants in Center City. Our appetizer was big delight. Exactly as our waitress described it:The waitress was very attentive and punctual. The food was amazing we don't know what we enjoyed more the appetizers or the meal. Dinardo's cra... view more

GREAT PLACE FOR GREAT FOOD

WHILE TAKING IN THE SITES OF THE CITY I CAME ARCOSSED DINARDOS AND DECIDED TO GIVE IT A TRY. AN I AM VERY HAPPY THAT I DID. I WAS DELIGHTED TO RECIEVE A WARM WELCOME FROM THE STAFF A SOON AS I ENTER THE BULIDING. THE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO MAKE SURE I ENJOYED MY VIST TO THERE RESTAURANT. I HAVE NOT BEEN A BIG FAN OF SEAFOOD IN THE PAST BUT DINARDO'S HAS CHANGED THAT THE FOOD WAS OUTSTAND... view more

Unbelievably Gross

My husband and I went on our first date approx. ten years ago at Dinardo's and we had a pleasant dining experience, just never really went back because we now have three kids and not as much time or money to wine and dine. So to celebrate Valentine's Day my husband decided that it would be nice to go there so he made the reservation and we got there and the place was wide open. The place looked a lot dingier then w... view more

Disgusting Food, Bad Service, Dirty Restaurant

Went there for restaurant week and was surprised to see that the inside DID NOT fit the outside at all! We still decided to give it a try. Then the Crab Bisque soup came out....eww...I had to practically beg the waitress to take it back so that I could try something new. Then the Clam Chowder came out....eww...it didn't look or taste fresh...almost like it was old. The buffalo shrimp were fried frozen shrimp drizzl... view more

Not worth it!!

asked a group of friends to go here to celebrate my birthday with the hopes of getting some succulent crab legs.. We all decided we would never dine here again. First of all the place is as big as a city row house. The tables are all jam packed together. Its just a little too close. The lighting is very dim and the light over our table flickered the whole time. There is no background noise, no elevator music.. nothin... view more
