Although many restaurants in the theater district bill themselves as trattorias, few achieve the authentic feel and taste of Maria Pia. This charming Italian eatery boasts comfortable indoor seating for 80, a sun-dappled, 20-seat, rear outdoor garden, and a genial mood that makes the menu that much more savory. The three-course prix fixe menus offer dishes slick enough for savvy palates that still taste as if they were cooked up by mama Maria herself.

"Very busy on a Sat night especially with it being Valentine's Day but they got us in and out. Food was very good, loved the bread and I had one of the specials. Potatoe encrusted striped bass was delicious! My boyfriend had a seafood stew type dish which was also good. The only negative I would say is that the tables are super close together. I recognize that it is NYC but maybe a few inches further apart would be a little more comfortable."

Buddakan has been called “a temple of modern Asian cuisine.” But it’s also a testament to the possibilities of inspired design. Upon entering, the first thing one sees is the surreal Asian garden surrounded by multi-level archways and 25-foot trees that seem to grow through rocks, footbridges and the ceiling itself. The dramatic atmosphere and enchanting karma is enhanced by the presence of a gigantic Golden Buddha that watches over the entire restaurant from a head of a 24-foot communal dining room table. The menu portrays an innovative interpretation of Asian Cuisine that matches the ambience in terms of creativity, inspiration and its capacity to satisfy. A delectably imaginative fusion of Chinese, French and Asian styles that results in dishes that exotic yet comforting – all prepared with perfectionist attention to the smallest detail.<br />Buddakan’s spectacular yet dreamlike ambience adds a new dimension to the array of destinations at the Pier at Ceasars.

"My boyfirend and I and my friends all go out ot eat a lot yet I have never been to Buddakan in AC or Philly. I have always heard how good it is and an overall great experience and now that I have been there I would definitely agree. Super drink and appetizer deals in the bar area for happy hour which i would definitely recommend. Service was great as was the food. We will definitely go again the future."

Combining the laid-back, all-day appeal of a diner with the innately comforting character of classic Cuban fare, Rosa Blanca is the best of Latin and American culinary culture from Philadelphia’s top Latin-American chef: Jose Garces. Open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner, late night and take-out, there is no better place to satisfy a comfort food craving. <br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

"This was my 2nd time dining at this restaurant and I would go back again. What would make it better is if they asked where you would like to be seated, the front diner part or the nicer part in the back. Also, not a lot of menu options for people that don't eat meat. I think there was only 1 fish and 1 seafood option."

Our newest restaurant reinterprets the classic steakhouse with an innovative island flair. <p>At Biscayne, you'll find premium cuts of steak and top-grade fish, prepared and presented with a fresh new twist. This unique gathering spot promises an extensive selection of wines, with everything from Amarone to Zinfandel.
