What a great evening! Everyone was raving about how great their meal was. Even the cocktails before the meal were stand out. My foie gras appetizer exceptional. As this was a family gathering there was a lot of sharing of dishes and every dish served was great. Glad my daughter turned us on to this restaurant. We'll be back! There... More

Fond offers both an ala carte menu and two tasting menus (5 items or 7 items with optional wine pairing). Given the overall cost of the items on the menu, the tasting menus are well prices and the wine pairings seem to be an absolute bargain, but we did not have either the tasting menus or the wine pairings.

Will keep this brief. Writing this review while savoring the remaining chicken liver mousse from our amazing 5 course tasting menu last night. From the impeccable table service to the finely crafted libations, a memorable gustatory experience all around. Can't wait to return.

We love dining in the city and each and every location has it's own personality, Fond is no different. What is different is that even though the restaurant is typical small you never felt like you were sitting on the person next to you or behind you or listening to their conversations...wonderful set up. Now to the food at fond,... More

Wow! Our Best Philly Foodie Friends suggest this excellent, little restaurant still in the Passyunk neighborhood. It is convenient to Vallet Parking near the "Fountain." Our initial cocktails were prepared to perfection with a smooth transition to a Mendoza Red by the Glass. The grilled Radicchio with figs and Goat Cheese was excellent. The Pork Belly, Braised Short Ribs and... More

When people ask me where they should go for dinner in Philadelphia, this is always in my top 10. The tasting menu is a foodie's delight. The wine list is carefully cultivated, with off the beaten path selections. The atmosphere feels cosy and trendy at the same time. The service is top notch. Highly recommended.
