Tucked away on 12 acres of lawns & gardens, the Joseph Ambler Inn is the ideal setting for a truly exceptional dining experience. Featuring award winning contemporary American cuisine & an extensive wine list. The Dining room is located in the renovated stone barn & features hardwood floors, exposed stone walls, & historic ambiance.

"We always enjoy a meal at JAI, considering a country spot different from our usual Philadelphia restaurants. We often have an "excuse" like a birthday or anniversary, since it's quite a costly meal and we don't splurge often.
Thursday night's dinner was quite excellent -- EXCEPT -- food was not hot enough when it came to the table -- the portobello appetizer, the monkfish and the scallops. Perhaps the server was overworked, and couldn't get our food soon enough after its preparation? We often go for lunch, when demands are lighter.
We're likely to go back, and always look forward to being at JAI, in large part for its ambience. We can get lots of similarly good food at a similar price in our city!"

"We always enjoy meals at Spasso, and have been returning for several years.
The wait staff is friendly, efficient and great at 'splitting' entrees for us.
The tables for 2 are nice and roomy.
Bread and 'veggies' served before/with appetizers are another treat.
Never disappointing!

Allow us to guide you into whatever you want, be it the best burger in town, a dry aged steak, or the finest cult California Cabernet. Indulge yourself in our local grown organic cuisine or just have a glass of wine and a snack at the bar. Let us host your business meetings in one of our new private rooms or just have a casual sidewalk salad and Martini. Come watch local sporting events on our big screen TV’s in the bars or have an intimate dinner for two in our cozy booths. I want to be your everyday cafe or your special occasion restaurant.<br>As much as things change, they stay the same. Fine food, Fine Drinks, And Fine Service is what I'm talking about!<br>See you on Main Street!<br>Derek

"This was a dinner at Derek's, where we more often go for lunch.
The food was fine, the quiet room with new art exhibited suited us well, and lessened cost with the help of Derek's birthday gift certificate made it even a more special celebration.
We'll be back.

Creperie Beau Monde is a perfect place to have brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks! We specialize in Crepes, but the menu also has plenty of appetizers, soups, and salads. Our romantic atmosphere is accommodating for that special date, your family (kids included), as well as large parties. The versatile menu has a wide range of prices that will agree with any budget.

A contemporary Mexican restaurant, El Vez offers many unique items such as mahi mahi tacos, ahi tuna tostadas, carne asada and pasilla braised pork pozole. Enjoy their made-to-order guacamole & margaritas with fresh-squeezed juices. Top off your meal with "The El Vez," a flourless chocolate cake, peanut butter mousse and carmelized bananas.

"The food was very delicious, and though I'm not a good judge, maybe truly Mexican in flavor.
The ambience of El Vez is distinctly non-Mexican, and is a midtown 'hot spot'.

"We consider every visit to Spasso to be a special treat, and a reason to make a trip to Old City.
Staff is attentive, courteous, efficient, and stays in good humor, even when busy.
The food is good, price good, wine good - no complaint.

"Each time we go, we enjoy London.
This time, happy hour with the "mini" dishes and a drink were perfect.
Our server was JT (or JC?), and was of good humor and gave us exactly what we wanted.

"We liked JBs 'cause we were out of the heat, viewed the beach, and got fed well.
Stephanie did a great job of serving us, and Andres was kind to seat us where he did, even though a periodontal group had a 'private' party in that space.
The prices seemed high, but a splurge for this unusual place was OK. We rarely go to Florida, so it's just this time.

"Ralph's feels like 'authentic' South Philly Italian dining.
Lunch was nicely served by Dominick, and the ambience is warm and inviting.
The prices for lunch used to be a lot lower, and now seem a bit expensive, but we're glad we went.
