Excellent experience, which would stand out in any city. We shared mussel toast, trotter gemelli, sea bass and a "black & tan" sundae. Food was all top notch. The service set our dinner apart from other dining in Philadelphia - expert without being condescending, willing...More

Small, not quiet, but an outstanding meal. Endive salad, pork belly pasta very special. Roast chicken is a winner. Desert very good. Service is efficient if not personable. Would like to have the option to bring own wine with a corkage fee. Will visit again.

Very popular. Reservations for weekends are a must. Noisy. Staff very helpful in navigating Eby with many unusual offerings. Food was very good. Not sure if handicap accessible. Dining room on second floor reached by a steep staircase. Now offers several interesting and tasteful desserts.

We walked in on a Saturday night with no reservation. After a short wait we were able to sit at the bar and were delighted by Paul, a warm and attentive bartender. The food was both delicious and unusual. The carrots confit deep and flavorful....More
