Visited here whilst I was in town for Business. Found the restaurant a great experience. Nice food, nice atmosphere and good service. Next time I'm ever in town I'd be sure to go again.

The building is very eclectic, nicely themed rooms, our was the dog room. Lunch was good, the ricotta with sourdough was delicious. My wife enjoyed her salad and the fish and chips was good, not great and a rather stingy portion.

We went to Dandelion on Friday afternoon about 3pm. The location is great in the middle of Rittenhouse Square. The restaurant looks like a British Pub when you first walk in but has multi levels and dinning rooms. I liked the decor. We ordered the...More

Lovely place in great location just off Rittenhouse Square. Relaxed and lovely interior with a walm welcome from great staff. The Fish and Chips were the best I've ever had (and I'm from England!) and my wife loved her steak (and she's South African!). Totally...More

Every time I visit Philly I have to get brunch here. The location (close to Rittenhouse Square) is great and close to lots of other great restaurants (the Rittenhouse neighborhood is the best place to stay, in my opinion). The decor and overall vibe is...More

I would suggest a phone call to the restaurant as well; while I was just recently there and recall seeing a few options for folks with food specific needs, I don't recall enough of the menu to advise you safely.

Parking in Philly is a nightmare, as in any other big city. Try the BestParking app or website. You can look and see what public garages there are near the restaurant. Be aware that city traffic will be tough - you probably... More
