We eat here often and love the food. But honestly Thanksgiving was not up to par for their normal food and service. I won't hold it against them because they are always great, but doubtful I'll do another holiday here at least

This isn’t a date spot, more of an Everyday dining experience. Service wasn’t great/attentive.

Popi's is THE place to pre-game and park and walk. Absolutely the best service and food all wrapped up with an extensive menu. I haven't had such wonderful service since prior to COVID 19. Fabulous.

Good food. Totally rushed had drinks, appetizers and dinner and push out in 45 minutes . It was an early Saturday dinner at 4.30 and should have never pushed so quickly

I am meals were outstanding and the service was second to none. When it got crowded it was a little bit tough to have a conversation but that was a minor issues.

Will definitely be back.

We always enjoy our dinners at Popi's. They have great food from appetizers through desserts. The service was great. This evening we were going to a Flyers game and had dinner before. The waiter was aware of this and provided excellent service but not rushed. We will definitely be back.

I am from out of state and this was my second time going here. The first time was so good, I had to come back! We had all the luck on this second trip to get the same waiter as the first time, "Nick". Great guy!
OH- the food - Just "OUTSTANDING"! First time was about a month ago there was just three of us, I had the Veal Parmesan and this time 8 of us. The Filet Mignon was my pick and to say that every bite just melted in you mouth. All the parties with me were amazed at the service and the quality of the food. This place will be revisited over and over again.

Thanks for putting the class of eating out on high standards, Kevin

The seasonal menu was wonderful. We sampled the honey ricotta appetizer, the pumpkin ravioli, butternut squash soup and the pumpkin martini. We enjoyed the veal chops, the chicken parmigiana and the caprese salad.

The hostess was friendly and happy to see us even though she was relatively new to Popi’s and had never seen us before. The wait staff was attentive and got all the orders right and timed perfectly. The kitchen prepared everything as requested and the bartender got all the drinks done well.

It was great returning to Popi’s after almost two years of the hell that kept us away from the things we love. It was great as well that Popi’s survived that hell to come out of it strong and as good as ever.

Congratulations!

In general ,it was just nice. The drinks took time to come out and then were wrong. The food was good, the Branzino was delicious.
Our server was very friendly but she didn't seem sincere. Could have also been a little more presentable.
Hostess was adorable.

A wonderful dining experience. We have booked with family there, it is one of our most favored places. I have taken my whole family there for my birthday and they all rave how good it is. Certainly, I recommend it!!! I have been coming there for a long while and also I remember Popi himself. The food is great!

One of the best meals I ever had. Lamb chops were SUPERB, as was my entree of Snapper. Service was excellent, even down to one of the waiters changing the TV station from that horrendous MSNBC to Fox. Thank you!!! Always satisfied at this restaurant.
