Overall the experience was wonderful!! Me and my girlfriend were celebrating our anniversary. Once we stepped foot in the door they made us feel welcomed. We’ll definitely be back!
The food was incredible and the ambiance was was perfect for an intimate dinner. Our server was so kind and attentive. Can not wait to go back.
Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Bistro Romano. The food was delicious and the service was attentive and efficient. Our favorites were the octopus appetizer, the gnocchi, the veal saltimbocca and the tiramisu.
We discovered this place because they accepted my Open Table voucher. Now we look forward to coming back, with or without a voucher.
The food, services, and ambiance were perfect! My wife and I would definitely recommend Bistro Romano.
Amazing atmosphere, amazing food, amazing service.
We absolutely loved Bistro Romano. The food, the service and professionalism was outstanding.
The octopus was the best we ever ordered. As was the seafood Brodetto served with a terrifically delicious saffron sauce was a memorable culinary experience.
Wonderful food and atmosphere - will definitely be back!
Awesome setting. Excellent food and wine. Great service. I will be back!
Let me start with the positive, they had very good drinks. We tried 4 of their signature cocktails. All were reasonably priced and tasted great!
When it came to the food, it was alright. The Short Rib Croquettes were overcooked. The Medium-Rare Filet came out barely seared. Overall, everything came out alright, but nothing was fantastic. When you go to a place like this, you have expectations that you're getting a great meal. If I wanted to go somewhere average, I would have gone somewhere else and saved a lot of money.
Finally, the service was just ok. We had to ask our waitress multiple times for a drinks menu. Again, there was nothing terrible about the service, I understand that servers get busy, but on the flip side, there wasn't anything amazing about it.
A pleasure speaking today; as discussed our team is equipped to make sure guests are enjoying their selections. If not we immediately remove & remake, suggest something else or remove it from the check. A manager visited twice, no indication you were displeased. Our goal is to make sure guests leave pleased & excited to return. We appreciate you will give us another chance & remain hopeful your 2nd visit will be amazing, not average. Again apologies & thank you for the review. Team BR.
Everything was great
The food and service was excellent!
Thanks for the great review! Glad you enjoyed. Team BR.
I’ve been a long time fan of Bistro Romano, but this was our first time dining at the restaurant since Covid. We were not disappointed. The service was excellent, the atmosphere is still rustic, cozy and very comfortable, and the food was prepared to perfection. We had the braised short ribs as an appetizer, along with salads, followed by a salmon dish and seafood risotto. We finished off with a chocolate torte and carrot cake which were a perfect ending. My only small criticism is that the menu did not have a good vegetarian option. I am a plant-based eater most of the time and try to adhere to that when dining out, but will eat seafood on occasion. I would’ve loved to see something without meat or fish, like mushroom risotto or even just an appetizer like bruschetta. But I know I’m particular and did not expect to see a vegetarian selection - It just would’ve been a bonus. We still had a great experience and will definitely dine here again.
Thanks for joining us & for the great review, we appreciate it. Wanted to pass along that we do offer a vegetarian menu, which includes grilled fig flatbread, vegetable farrotto, among other items, and is listed on our website and available from your server. It is always great to hear from our Bistro Fans! Thanks again for your detailed review and for joining us indoor. Glad you enjoyed and we look forward to your return. Team BR.
Two visits.. two exceptional meals! My fave place in Philadelphia
Two for two plus fave, we'll take it! Thanks for joining us & for the great review. Team BR.
Food was excellent. Recommend the shashito peppers calamari and pork chop. Great wine list.
Thanks for the excellent, we appreciate it. Delish recommendations too! Glad you enjoyed. Team BR.
We had a wonderful time for my mom’s birthday, very comfortable, felt safe, great service and value and can’t wait to go back! Food as always was excellent, thank you!
Glad you enjoyed; thanks for celebrating Mom at Bistro & for the 5star on food, service & safety. Team BR.
Hostess was very welcoming. Food was very good. The bread and sun dried tomato spread was awesome. Short rib croquettes, an appetizer, were a little dry. Bianca Sangria was great.
Our waitress did seem to forget about us towards the end of our main entrees. We had no food nor drink left and we were kind of just waiting. Who I think was a manager or the owner did walk by our table a handful of times and so we asked him for the check. Our waitress did then come over with the check, and not that we wanted anything else, but we were not asked if we wanted dessert or another drink. Our waitress was nice, she just seemed to have forgotten about us.

A wonderful setting for my girlfriend and I’s anniversary dinner. Food was excellent. We were seated in the private wine cellar room. It made for a very romantic dinner evening!
Delighted our candlelit wine cellar played a part in your important anniversary celebration and that you found the food excellent. We value your recommendation and 5stars. Cheers. Team BR.
The Bistro R crew and all the fixings are outstanding. For over 12 years Ive been a happy dining customer and they never cease to amaze me. Mike does not miss anything and he does not cut corners on the quality of the authenticity, quality, taste and finer food and drinks. They continue to offer continuity and resilience. Also, Wil the server was outstanding and so kind. He paid close attention to detail and offered award wining service with 100% customer service excellence.

See you soon.

Victor, chef & team pay close attention to food allergies & dietary requests. Glad you enjoyed our food & service. We appreciate the high marks. Team BR.

Loved the food and atmosphere. The filet and Burrato appetizer were so good .
Thanks for sharing a few of your favorites, glad you enjoyed. Team BR.
Very nice evening and good food and wine options. The food was copious, a little too much for some of us, and of a high standard. The desserts were nice too. I wouldn't go so far as to say amazing or memorable but very nice.
Thank you for sharing your experience & for the 5stars, we appreciate it. Team BR.
Love it, our server was Awesome,
Thank you!! Team BR.
I'm somewhat a regular here so I enjoy the food. I was here for a business dinner for a visiting executive from a client company. The only issue for the evening was they ran out of the Tiramisu for dessert. No complaints otherwise.
A Bistro VIP indeed. Apologies about the tiramisu; guests that evening shared your fondness hence the sellout. We appreciate being your go-to for client dinners and with your family as well. See you soon. Thanks, Team BR.
I have been going to bistro Romano for many years they know me and it's sort of a family situation now the food does not disappoint. I usually have the veal saltimbocca which is delicious. And I also had the roasted cauliflower soup which was just outstanding.
Thank you for your private note and for the 5star review. You are a valued guest and have been a Bistro VIP for many years; "your" table is always at the ready for you. Hope to see you soon. Thank you, Team BR.
Our server was super nice and on top of everything! The food was the most delicious Italian food I have ever had. It is a pricier restaurant, but completely worth it. Will absolutely be back!
Thanks for the 5star; glad you enjoyed our food and service. We look forward to your return. Team BR.
Terrific as always!! Caesar salad is the best I have ever had; never dissapoints.
Terrific.....super! Thanks for the extra kudos for our Caesar, must say we agree!! Thanks again, Team BR.
When you go stick to the food they're known for such as the Caesar Salad and any pasta with bolognese. The rest is just average.
The wine store at the entrance of the restaurant is confusing since we asked the hostess and she said that we could have, at the table, any wine you'd buy at the store, but as soon as we sat down, the waitress said that we received wrong information and that we needed to order from the wine list.
Glad we had an opportunity to speak, thank you. Our apologies for any confusion. We look forward to your return. Team BR.
We went there for my mother in laws birthday. Overall we had a great experience. Definitely will go back.
Thanks for celebrating with us; glad you enjoyed. Team BR.
This has been my third time there this year and I have enjoyed each experience! The food is amazing! The overall atmosphere and ambience is very warm and romantic too. The service has been top notch as well
Can’t recommend this place enough! Very delicious, great service and ambiance.
We sat upstairs next to the bar and our waiter/the bartender (forgot his name) was very accomodating and knowledgeable of the menu!
Thanks for joining us for your Birthday celebration and your note. Team BR.
I'm always a fan of Bistro Romano. The food is great and the service is impeccable. I hadn't been there in quite some time, but was pleased that they were following Covid protocols and I felt very comfortable.
Thanks for returning and for the 5's on food the safety of our guests glad you felt very comfortable enjoying dinner inside the Granary. Thanks again, Team BR.
