After the symphony on Sunday, we stopped by the Dandelion for an early dinner. Fish and Chops was excellent. For those who enjoy an afternoon tea, The Dandelion may be your new tea spot. Afternoons until 5 pm. As always , service was great and the double chocolate stout hit the spot.

Popped in here for a late lunch. Sat in the bar and loved the seafood pate served with delicious warm pumpernickel bread. Our server Adrian was very helpful in making recommendations and meeting our needs. Other items on the menu were very tempting! Will return.

You'd have thought the Brits never left after 1776. Multi-floor restaurant that captures the spirit of a pub on Picadilly. Highlights: the Pimms cup, house-made scones, outstanding fish and chips, sticky toffee pudding. Attentive but not pushy service - for as busy as they were (totally banging), staff allowed us to dine at our leisure. From what I could tell,... More

Brunch was nice, met some friends at the location. Service was stellar, food was healthy, well prepared and tasty. Their presentation is unique and became part of our memorably good experience. It was busy though you never felt rushed.

To my right: finished the crab risotto / clean plate. Also tried... More

Went for a late lunch. Started withe Dandelion Salad, fresh, light and tasty. Followed by Prince Edward Islands Mussels with roasted red peppers, tomatoes, white wine and Coriander which were excellent as were the triple cooked chips. Drunk an excellent bottle of Cote de Rhone Blanc. Service was excellent.

Philly's restaurant scene is truly outstanding. I've had many fantastic meals in the city, but The Dandelion takes the cake. From the stellar menu to the cozy decor, this place is top-notch. Then there's the impeccable cocktail menu, including the best Pimm's cups and dark & stormies I've ever had—and both are offered by the pitcher (which might sound like... More

Happened on this place while walking around on a Sunday afternoon and we were all very impressed. Great atmosphere, very friendly staff and a good choice of excellent beers. Highly recommended.

A homey, distinctive setting for a wonderful meal. The butter lettuce salad was a tasty treat. The service just right. I have never had better risotto than the crab risotto. I highly recommend this update of British cuisine.
