They got a new Chef in late summer 2010. He is fantastic! We have been there 5x and never had anything but good things to say about the food or service. Being a beer snob, I was impressed with the selection and knowledge of the staff pouring. Some free parking but the lot on Fairmont ave is cheap and close.

We have been going here for over a year now but took the winter off. We went last Friday night and sat outside. They changed the menu since we were there last and we felt the old menu was much better. Also the menu itself was dirty and sticky which does not make for a great first impression. I ordered a cesear salad which was mediocre at best, it lacked flavor. We also ordered the mussels and the pork belly special which were both very good. We were there during happy hour but they did not have a happy hour menu or drink special. Or atleaset if they did we were not offered any choices. Service was ok but the server was not even aware of any of the specials for that evening.
Going forward we don't think we will be going back. London Grill which is around the corner has outside seating, a happy hour menu and drink specials and has an overall nicer menu. We liked the feel of Rembrandt's better but it just seems like the standards of Rembrandt's has changed for the worst.

As someone who has seen the behind the scenes workings of this restaurant, I can honestly tell you that eating here's a BAD idea! Yes, the food is good but they are NOT clean. Rodents have been a serious issue and not all kitchen members abide by washing hands and other such things. I know that the food is good but also knowing how rude the staff can be and how unsanitary the conditions are is enough for me to put it out there that this place just isn't worth your money. Brigid's and Bishop's Collar are both around the corner and though Bishop's Collar's service isn't always the best, both places have really good food. So does London Grille, which is a bit pricier than the other two but it's still good. Just as a friendly tip, there's sooo many places to eat in this area, you don't need to eat here.

I first came here back in the 90s when I was a student at Temple. After some time away, it's still the great little gem it was before.
My boyfriend and I eat here a few times a year, and it's always a nice experience. Have never been in the Tavern section, so can only speak on the ""fine-dining"" portion of the restaurant, but we have never had a disappointing meal. Service is always reliable, if not outstanding- so maybe we have just been lucky. We seem to get the same waiter every time (I wish I could remember his name- tall, young, shaved head) and he is very knowledgeable and accommodating.
My only wish is that they would bring back the cheese plate!

My girlfriend and I give this place another try every three or four months. She likes the Steak Frits, but just about every time, the service is terrible. I'll describe the experience last night: We walk in and aren't greated by a host, we wait several minutes and then try to ask two waitresses if it's alright to just grab one of the open tables outside, one ignores me and the other just says go ahead. We sit at the table and it has plates, glasses and food still left over from the last patrons. We wait fifteen minutes for anyone to come over and by this time we just order food and drinks without menus because she isn't prepared. She cleans up the table on the second stop. All the time this is happening, every other table around us is having the same issues. Our food shows up about 25 minutes later and we notice they bring out Steak Frites to my girlfriend that were originally brought out to the wrong table. Our food is cold and over cooked. We saw our waitress a grand total of two times. No drink refills, no asking if we wanted dessert, how was our food, etc. I'd say it was just this waitress, but the last five times this has happened. It's more of a reflection of bad management and, unfortunately, the owners. I would really stay away from this place unless you want to walk away unsatisfied and frustrated.

This place has great coal oven pizza and customer service! It also makes a good place to watch sports because they have a bar area as well. Their prices are reasonable and their wonderful pizzas are cheap for what you get, (last time I was there a 14 inch pizza was $10.) Their beers are pretty good as well.

My boyfriend and I have started coming here for Sunday brunch. I have to say that the location is great and the food is good. Service is luck of the draw, but definately a gem in the Art Museum area. We have been fortunate enough to snag seats outside. I highly recommend the Eggs Benedict and Spinach Mascapone crepes, odd combination, but it works! He loves the Belgian Waffle. I've also had the pizza always a crowd pleaser. Our dogs have come out on occasion, our waitress brought out a water bowl and even some treats for them. It's just a great atmosphere if you can get out there on a nice day, however I would recommend not sitting by the kitchen- it's very congested and sometimes the staff has a few, not so flattering things to say about unhappy customers. If they can compose themselves when it gets busy, it will be a great place.

A friend told us about this one. So when we came in to the Art Museum we decided to give Rembrant's a try and were very pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. Great selection of
dishes on the menu. Food preparation and presentation were well above average. Service was paced just right so you did not feel rushed or crowded. Plenty of parking right across the street. Easy to get to, would definitly go back again.

We went on a Thursday night and sat in the tavern section (not the fine dining section). This place is wonderful and great for a secluded, romantic evening. It's dim, but not dark and not too crowded. The food is absolutely delicious and not at all overpriced. Also, the waiter paid attention to what we needed, but outside of that, was barely there -- we really liked this because it gave us some privacy. Overall, this is one of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time.
