Our waiter Tate was absolutely awesome. He was the nicest person and made sure everyone was fine. However I was disappointed that they were out of green beans. The whole reason I wanted to go there was because everyone says how good they were. I also found a small hair in the butter and Tate took care of it right away. Overall I had a good time and everything was great minus the hair and green beans! They made my birthday extra special and Tate even brought out a mini creme brûlée.

The staff always seems to remember me. I'm treated like one of their favorite customers.
The bar staff goes out of their way to make me a drink that I like.

Tate was our waiter and he was a true professional. Service was outstanding, and the food was delicious and cooked perfectly. Front desk host and hostess were very nice, helpful and gracious. Can't wait to go back. By FAR it is our favorite restaurant.

We arrived early,but were seated promptly:at a reserved table. It was our Anniversary, and we were served a complimentary glass of champagne. The service was excellent, Tate was very attentive and courteous. The food was great.

I wish I remembered the name of our server as he was enthusiastic, helpful, and very attentive (mind you it was a prime time Saturday night during restaurant week). the crab dip was very salty (only reason i gave food 4 stars) but the manager comped the app since other guests said the same. I had the filet and cake, and my friend had a seafood pasta. Well worth the money, and i will def go back again! ALMOST EVERYTHING Was gluten free!!!!

Dinner was great. Our waiter was awesome! He was polite, our meal was well timed and his attentiveness was perfect. We had a table on the second floor, at our request, because we heard they have live jazz on Friday. The musicians were outstanding, but the volume was too high for my wife and I to have good conversation. The Belvedere is our go to restaurant for consistently good food and great service.

My son and I had a wonderful experience from the beginning to the end. The food was fabulous and the server, Jimmy, exceeded our expectations. He is by far one of the best servers that I have ever come in contact with. We will definitely be going back to the Belvedere!! So grateful to have a wonderful restaurant nearby

We had another delicious dinner as part of restaurant week! You can’t go wrong with grilled Caesar salad and crab cake. Mac and cheese is also delicious! Service was fantastic!

Great place from the first step inside. We were greeted by the hosts and told that our table was ready. (we were early) Our server, Josh, was amazing! From start to finish he was very thorough and personable. He made us all laugh and was very thoughtful! The food was as great as always. We took another couple for their first time here and, of course, the Belvie Bread and Grilled Ceasar Salad were hits! We drive from Bucks County to get here but the Belvedere is always worth it! Thank You!!!

I took my goddaughter here to celebrate her 18th birthday and although our reservation was for 8:15 PM they were not able to get us a table until 8:45. They were so kind about it as it was not something they could help and comped our appetizer to make up for it. Love this place, the decor, the atmosphere and the wonderful staff and I will continue to return!

I really wanted to like this place. The food and drinks were outstanding. However, the service was rushed...like, Olive Garden rushed. Did not care for that at all. I felt like we were being hustled out of there to turn a table. Which is strange when you have a jazz band playing that seems to encourage people to linger. Courses all came very fast, and the kicker was when the waiter dropped the check before we'd finished our wine and came back again to collect it before we had finished our drinks. He kept saying "no rush" but his actions said otherwise. Not sure if I'd return based on this experience. I believe when you're charging as much as they do, your diners should feel free to linger, not feel like they're being rushed through their expensive meal.

If you like vintage this place is for you.
Everyone was very nice and professional. Their lobster, crab, steak, and the mussels were the best I ever had.

I took my mother there for her birthday dinner and she had an amazing time. We arrived a little early, but the host greeted us immediately and invited us to wait at the bar while they prepared our table. We didn't wait long at all. At our table was a very thoughtful birthday card with mom's name printed on it from the staff. The owner had called me that afternoon and asked me for my mother's name and I realized that it was for the card. It was such a lovely, personal touch and it made my mom very happy.

The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. I had the best crab cake ever! Absolutely no fillers, pure crab meat. My mom's filet mignon was perfectly cooked. For dessert, my mom chose the Mango Panacotta which was exquisite and our server, Lindsay, told us it was compliments from the restaurant for her birthday. They really made it a special evening!

We went here for a Valentine's day date and the whole experience was incredible. We only had to wait 10-15 min while our table was being prepared but the bar area was really nice so the wait seemed like nothing. The food and the service was excellent. We had a wonderful time, the lamb I ordered was perfect. We will be back.

Valentine Day Dinner. Absolutely, outstanding in every respect. Requested table near the fireplace, quietus area in restaurant, got it, food was excellent, especially the lamb tenderloin and crab cakes.
Our waitress, TIA, was fabulous, took really good care of us. The lady's all got a long stem rose on arrival, which was very nice. A great dinning experience !!
