Absolutely fabulous! Went there for our 29th wedding anniversary. The service and food were top notch. Everything our server suggested was delicious. Who would have thought kale would be so delicious.

The atomosphere at the Saloon is simply incrediable! It is a great place to go if you want a nice steak or quality seafood.. yea, it can be expensive, but i believe you get what you pay for. I would recommend the Saloon to anyone!!

ps the chocolate chip cheesecake is a must!

Can't get this place out of my head- and can't wait to go back. Everything was exceptional. Amazing pasta- and I usually don't go out to eat pasta- but this was from another world! Professional, happy staff made it an unexpectadly amazing evening. Just Go.

Pros: everything!

This is an upscale restaurant. The upstairs is more formal than down. The steaks are excellent and prepared to your likening. The service is always outstanding. The have a lot of fine seafood on the menu to choose from as well. If you don't have American express then you better have cash.

The Saloon has long had the reputation of a fine, upscale Italian restaurant. In fact during lunch, you may often see some of Philly's biggest power players. The food is excellent and the staff professional. The entrees are expensive. This is the perfect restaurant for a special occasion or a important date.

Went there last week for a business dinner. The food is amazing and is reason enough to make the trip! Their pasta is made in house at their bakery around the corner, so are their desserts. I had the ravioli (heavenly) and steak special- to die for! There are only 2-3 meals per year where I enjoy it enough to fantasize about it days after, this was one of them.
Although the restaurant is known for its attractive female staff, our server Anthony blew us away with his attentiveness. Gave us a complimentary appetizer and extra glasses of the wine we were drinking when we finished our first bottle. When I was trying to decide between 2 desserts, he brought BOTH of them out and didn't charge me for the 2nd one. By the way, I had the tiramisu and the raspberry napoleon, and both were absolutely wonderful.
They?ve been in business for almost 40 years, but do not advertise anywhere. It?s word of mouth only. If you?re looking for excellent food and something off the beaten path (and non- Stephen Starr), this is your place. Your dad will love it!

This is a very special, old time South Philadelphia restaurant. The food is outstanding. I even ate crab meat and I don't eat seafood. The upstairs dining was candle lite and romantic. A very good place to impress your date.

That says it all, Poor, Poor, Poor. My friends and I were have a night out going from bar to bar and this place is one that we should have skipped. The only positive thing is that we did not stay long and we were able to use the bathroom.

I was fortunate enough to be there as a business dinner but this is one of the restaurants in North America that I'd gladly plunk down my own AMEX for. I ate at Saloon in February 2004 and it still ranks as one of my top three meals ever (View from Nikolai's Roof in Atlanta and Keane's in NYC).

I get to eat in quite a few nice restaurants for work and I consistently reference the food at Saloon (I had the Ribeye and Crab stuffed Mushrooms as an appetizer) as some of the best I've ever eaten.

Great for out of towners and a really neat setting as the random visitor would never expect such an excellent experience after the view from the street.

Pros: Sit upstairs, a really neat setting with views of the upstairs bar and windows from the 2nd floor.

Cons: I wouldn't park my own car as mentioned previously.

Old type saloon settings with everything you need for a romantic dinner. Fast service with a personal touch.

After appetizers, we waited over an hour for our entrees. Our server said a large party had put their order in right before ours. I would hope that a restaurant this of this size and reputation could either handle the four additional steaks we had ordered or make our wait worthwhile. When our food finally arrived, three of the four steaks were grossly overcooked. The server removed only one from the table and said she would take it off the bill. When the bill did arrive, it included an additional $15 charge for the mashed potatoes the waitress said she would substitute for two of the steak's mushrooms. All in all, the food, service and price were unexceptable. With so many great italian restaurants and steak houses in Philadelphia, why would anyone choose The Saloon?

Many times I head to South Phila with intentions of dining at another of the many fine restaurants in the area, however ,more often than not I gravitate back to the Saloon. I have never been disapointed with the food or service. Its always a pleasure

Pros: Great Food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere

Cons: Limited Parking

The food is impeccable, I have never been dissappointed. No matter how full you are, you always seem to make room for that desert. The staff is so professional, friendly and curteous. The owner is often found mingling in the crowd and greeting customers. The atmosphere is wonderful. There is no better place in the city for a great dinner. This is the perfect place to impress someone or to celebrate something exciting.

I have been here once, but what style, what class! The meal was the most expensive I had ever actually paid for and it was worth every penny. The service was gracious, the chops memorable. This is not high cuisine but perfect staples. I think it must be Philadelphia's best steak house, and of course it gets extra points because it is not part of a chain. It is a genuine Philadelphia institution.
