London Grill is located in the historic Fairmount section of Philadelphia, close to the Philadelphia Art Museum and easily accessible from the Schuylkill Expressway with abundant parking available. This award winning restaurant boasts a Victorian bar and several intimate dining rooms and 2 banquet rooms. Serving New American cuisine, balancing comfort specialties like the London Burger and Fish and Chips with innovative dishes like the duck breast with beet risotto, several grilled fish and meat dishes and housemade pastas. There's a kid's menu also. Great for lunch, brunch, dinner, happy hour, late night, outdoor dining and groups.

"We like London Grill every time! The food is fine, fettucine and chicken both well-prepared, and the back room, glassed-in for a city view, and with a good heater at our feet, was wonderfully quiet. The bread last night was just fair (can't say what kind!), and we'd wish they didn't dole it out 1 slice at a time, but my diet profitted by that."

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

"Our first time on a weekend. Glad the back room was sunny and quiet, and food as always, good, skipped 1/2-price wine, but it's a nice deal......"

"Scoogi's mission is to bring a bit of our family's Italian culture to you, so that you can celebrate each meal as we do. In our family, dinnertime was the centerpiece of our lives. Today, mealtime remains very special. The goal of this restaurant is to make mealtime special for you and your family. I want to recreate the feeling I love. That's my dream." -Robert Angelo Rosato

"We were so glad to be at Scoogi's, and warm and well-fed on a cold wintry day.
Service, food and ambience were all so fine, and a hearty lunch for under $10 made us happy we were there.

Bistro Albertino is a chef owned restaurant where chef Goni decided to bring his European experience in Willow Grove and areas surrounding it. At Bistro Albertino you will find from homemade pastas and cheese to tender veal and chicken, from traditional dishes to contemporary dishes. You will feel welcome soon as you walk in, with the enthusiastic front of the house staff will accompany you to your experience with us. We accommodate children as well.

"We were really happy to learn about this spot. Friends of ours recommended it.
Food was delicious, service personnel all very nice, and ambience much nicer than the street view would indicate.
We're very glad we got a GROUPON, and it's BYOB.
We'll go again.

"The food was OK, though portions seemed small for the price.
Michael was the host, very pleasant, and tried hard.
Disappointment was: We were promised on the phone that we could get the "regular menu" and order a la carte, during the Restaurant Week for Center City. When we arrived, we were told NO, we'd have to order from the special menu of the week, which had no prices, no side dishes listed.
We were served by 3 separate people, not Michael, and not a friendly word was spoken. We got 3 small slices of bread, no offer of more. We had to 'grab' someone to get our water glasses refilled.
Food was OK, as it is as so many Philadelphia Italian restaurants.
Location near the theater was our goal. Decor is pretty.
