  • kimlwilliams reviewI have dined at Striped Bass over the years and consistently find the cuisine appealing and of high quality. However, last Saturday evening, I experienced marginally competent service and a general arrogance that severely detracted from the quality of the dining experience. The restaurant staff rationalized the disappointing treatment as a byproduct of a busy Saturday night, but that excuse further illustrates the need for more training and an overall higher level of professionalism.

  • latnldy7 reviewThe best Philadelphia dining experience I have had thus far! In my opinion, The Striped Bass far surpasses Le Bec Fin for cuisine, service, and atmosphere. I cannot wait to return there for another special evening.

  • mebraun69 reviewAre you kidding me? Totally over rated would be an understatement for this restaurant. I arrived with a full appetite and was to say the least, ` disappointed`, when the waiter delivered my seafood entre which might barely fill the stomach of an 8 year old. C'mon- I've satisfied my hunger better consuming the number 3 value meal at McDonald's!!! If I'm paying top dollar for a good meal, can you at least give me something that will make me feel like I've just eaten a dinner??? Save your money for Le Bec Fin...

  • gkrania reviewObviously pricy but worth every nickel.

    44444 by gkrania


  • s reviewTHE COMMENTS TO THE RIGHT OF THIS SECTION ARE INCORRECT IN SAYING THE MEALS RANGE FROM $20 TO $30 DOLLARS. HOW ABOUT $30 T $40. PLUS I WOULD EXPECT A LITTLE MORE FOOD FOR THAT MONEY THAN JUST THE MAIN ENTREE. IF I HAD MONEY TO THROW AWAY I WOULD PROBALBY RETURN. BETWEEN THE CONJESTION, THE SIDEWALK CLUTTER AND THE FACT THAT THE PARKING GARAGE NEXT DOOR DESTROYED MY ALLOY WHEELL ON MY CAR, I DOUBT THAT I WOULD EVER RETURN. AS USUAL, WITH ENOUGH HIPE ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

  • kdevlin00 reviewwe had another great meal at this outstanding restaurant. The blue fin tuna was so good you could cut it with a fork and the lobster was succulent. All and all a great evening.

  • theyommer reviewWhile this restaurant may be the `talk of the town`, my recent experience with the food and its pricing left me feeling grossly disappointed and, quite frankly, robbed! My spouse and I have very refined palates and are never one to balk at paying the big bucks for a great dinner out, so the $180 (incl $30 liquor + tip) that we dropped for two wouldn't have fazed us in the least if we felt we got our money's worth. My $15 appetizer of seared dayboat sea scallops consisted of two (yes, two!) quarter-sized morsels accompanied by a few shreads of nouveau greens & a bit of sauce. For this price and portion size, I thought the chef surely must have traveled to the Grand Banks to dive for them himself! This course was followed by an even more disappointing entree, the $42 grilled Maine lobster, which was basically an 8oz split overcooked lobster tail served on a bed of beans with some flavorless reduction sauce and a bit of claw meat garnish. My spouse's appetizer & entree were less disappointing ($19 raw oyster selection, and $30 seared salmon) but we both left very hungry and undersatisfied overall with the experience. We left before dessert or a cheese plate and coffee could pick our pockets for another $50.00. So buyer beware - if you wish to pay for atmosphere and service - this is your place - but if you also like to have food included in your tab - pack a picnic or eat before you go. Or better yet, take your $$$$ a few blocks away to Buddakan where the service, ambiance AND FOOD won't disappoint!

  • bryguy83 reviewI sat next to this guy who looked like a women trying to be a man. So that was neat. The waiter, Dave Sralik, had a molester moustache that you could tell took him years to perfect. The girl I was with that evening thought the restaurant was formerly a bank or credit union, judging by the architecture. I would say that it was DEFINITELY a bank. I made a deposit in the 'First National Bank of Bootay' that night. Thanks Striped Bass of Philadelphia!!

  • norandy reviewWell regarded, but disappointing. Appetizers were good. Entrees nothing special for the price. Desserts not good at all for a top flight restaurant. Sevice not offesive, but not attentive. And when there were problems getting our car from valet parking, the staff on the scene, said they were from a different company and couldn't find the manager in a reasonable amount of time. None of this would have happened at the Four Seasons. For their price and reputation none of it should have happened at Striped Bass.

  • joseph_mccarthy reviewMy partner and I were underwhelmed and somewhat irritated by our experience at Striped Bass on 1 July 2006. The evening began with a demonstration outside the restaurant protesting the fact that Striped Bass serves foie gras. When we entered the restaurant, the host made a disparaging remark about the demonstrators, to which I responded that I agreed with them that Striped Bass shouldn't be serving foie gras. The host then rolled his eyes at me and walked away! In retrospect we should have canceled our reservation and left, but we were seated and ordered. Our waiter then turned around and recommended the foie gras! He encouraged us to ask questions, but he couldn't answer some questions. When we ordered wine we were handed over to a garrulous sommelier who spent half the time talking about her ailments and the `voices in her head` (I'm not making this up). One of her voices did make a decent wine recommendation. The appetizers were inventive and interesting, but lacked any compelling tastes or flavors. The entrees were quite subtle and complex in their ingredients, and were the best part of the evening. I nevertheless have to second another reviewer's comment that the portions were quite small, given that my HALIBUT was $37! Still the preparation was quite inventive and memorable. Dessert -- a chocolate tart served with an absolutely flavorless mousse or ice cream --was good but not great. The pastry chef did acknowlegde our anniversary, which we were celebrating, by inscribing `Happy Anniversary` on the dessert plate with chocoloate sauce. We appreciated the gesture, but it didn't fully nake up for the host's rudeness or our waiter's lack of familiarity with the menu. One final comment: the place needs a good dusting. The sides of the columns around the center of the dining room and the bottm rungs of the chairs were coated with a fairly thick and conspicuous layer of dust.

  • bryguy83 reviewMy partners and I have been going to the striped bass for as long as I can remember before it changed hands. Never disappointed. Impecible service, attitude and a desire to please and accomodate. Wow, what a difference new owners make. The first time I gave them the benefit of the doubt. This last time was unacceptable. Food was good, not great. Two deserts came out burnt. Service was unacceptably slow 1 hr before appetizers and 1 1/2 until dinner..a 3+ hour ordeal. $ 17 martinis ,,,not again !

  • carly reviewSunday brunch and a birthday celebration for my children and two 8-month old grandsons on Father's Day. With all that potential chaos, everything was handled with a degree of professionalism that took care of our party of eight without impact on other diners! An all around delight.

  • bashfyl reviewTook my daughter and son-in-law to celebrate their graduation from law and medical schools. Both were awestruck by the total experience. The physical ambiance, the quiet professionalism of the waitress and the extraordinary quality and presentation of the food (lunch) were as good as I have ever experienced on either coast. An incredible culinary event. You are surely one of America's top eatery's!!

  • jburns reviewThis was an expensive disappointment on Easter Sunday. Lukewarm food and service at ridiculouos prices. Attention to detail lacking while served by a condescending waiter who was slow and disinterested. With all the wonderful choices of restaurants in this great city, this was a mistake for a special family gathering.

  • KellyRae reviewA must for lunch also! Had an unbelievable prix fixe lunch for $24pp (with the usual upcharge for some appetizers). An awesome scallop appetizer, followed by wild striped bass entree'and finished up with a great fresh fruit dessert! Six of us had varying appy's/entrees'/desserts and none of us were disappointed.

  • jeffs reviewCame from London and went to this restaurant on a recommendation - absolutely perfect. Not even a seafood lover before I went here but want to go back again next week. Portions were a nice size, not too big but just right and everything tasted delicious, slightly pricey but worth every penny.
