"Had a wonderful meal at the Poached Pear, service and food were oth impeccable. When we saw Foie Gras on the menu with the duck we asked the waiter if it was available as an appetizer, after a quick check with the chef he said "no problem" and it was delicious. We had the steak and lobster specials and they also wear outstanding. We can't wait till we go back.... Soon ."

R2L is the embodiment of sophistication, elegance and fun; everything that dining should be. With an eye to the future, Chef Daniel Stern takes traditional American flavors and brings them up-to-date with a modern twist — resulting in his unique interpretation of Creative American Cuisine. <br /><br />The food and service recall the elegance of the past with an atmosphere that invites and entices. A place to linger and lounge, R2L takes center stage from high atop Center City-a place where spectacular food and dining is topped off with spectacular, endless views.<br /><br />BAR2L is the perfect place for happy hour & for meeting new & old friends. For private dining, 3 boardrooms & the Pinnacle Room round out the experience at R2L.

"Made a loast minute reservation on Friday, and was seated immediately. The resturant has breathtaking views... if you are near the window. A request I was told should be made months in advance. Service was very attentive, pretzel bread should be served warm and the appetizers were pretty good. Although earthy beets are good these tasted almost like dirt. We shared the short ribs, and tuna special and roasted corn and polenta special side. The short ribs although cooked extremely well were to salty. The other hand the tuna lacked seasoning and was extremely bland. The polenta and corn was the highlight but was also very salty. We had the chocolate suffle and it was outsatnding.This is a place for the bar and the view, not dinner."

"I have been trying to get here for a while and was lucky to be in Philly on a Tuesday night. We were promptly seated in their roomy greenhouse and enjoyed a wonderful meal with excellent service. We had a great pizza and polenta gnocchi as an appetizer. Both delicious. We had a steak for 2 and a pasta and they were also excellent. Additionally they had a great selection of Italian wines that were extremely reasonably priced. This is a great restaurant."

"Had an afternoon appointment in Princeton and was looking for a nice lunch. Eno Terra was wonderful. They have the freshest ingredients, including salami's and fresh meats and the Pasta's were to die for. They also served the best espresso I have ever had. It was served in a hot cup and remained at temperature the entire time, often when ordering espresso if there are several for a table they arrive at the wrong temperature, not here. They were wonderful, and their attention to detail is obvious."
