Food and overall were great! Had a family meet up with a few folks we met via ancestry. Perfect place!
The food was very salty. I am very disappointed that it tasted that way. I can say that I ate there, but that was the 1st and last time.
the waitress and service was great my friend and i ordered chicken and waffle, the chicken was fried too hard and the waffles were to light, i wll try them again but ,try some of the other menus like fish and grits, which one friend said was good
The food was okay, I was expecting a bit more.
My friends and I loved this restaurant and will return. From the moment we stepped in the door they made us feel welcome and comfortable. The glasses of wine were generous pours and our mistake was ordering apps because we got full fast. The food was delicious and they gave my friend free desert with a candle on it because it was her birthday. We ordered the chicken gumbo soup, deviled eggs, shrimp cocktail, 2 orders of cornbread, oxtails over rice, short ribs with mashed potatoes and string beans, fried catfish with mashed potatoes and collard greens and a vegan jambalaya. Every thing was delicious and the prices were reasonable. We all left Booker's with enough leftovers for dinner the next day.
I am so grateful for my experience at Booker's! The ambiance was amazing and I was fortunate to have been seated in an area with some other fantastic people,. Our server, Paige, was outstanding!!!! She was attentive, engaging and extremely professional. The menu offered a variety of options to make any "foodie" happy. I found the food to be very good - tasty and plentiful!! I am not local to Philadelphia but I will return! Thank you for a wonderful experience!
It was a birthday celebration.
Food was sent back 3 times smh and the waitress was poorly trained.
Our server was amazing. I think her name was Jessica. Very attentive and professional.
Great service and good food. Very good COVID protocols in place. Plenty of outdoor and indoor eating space.
Great place good service good food. Nice place to spend time. I only wish that the music volume was turned up just a little. But overall the experience was masterful!
Food was delicious!
This was a birthday dinner for someone special. She really enjoyed the place and food. She will definitely want to visit again!
Great service. Food okay. Will be back!
Overall food was good, we had a large party. There were a couple of people in the party who received parts of their food at different times, so the 1st part had to go back to be reheated. The server we had was new and either she didn't know or just didn't go over the daily specials and the 3 course special that was going on, with us.
Always a great time at Bookers’s. Great energy and Black people looking nice 😊
Great experience - when my friends suggested this restaurant for dinner I was reluctant because pre-pandemic the service was slow and the food hit or miss. Current state is awesome! The service was exceptional- friendly and attentive. Our server Micheal was so good. The menu has improved greatly. Fried Okra - yes please. Seafood entrees excellent. Carrot cake delicious! We will be back.
This was my first time here and I loved EVERYTHING about it!!! I most definitely will be revisiting this place again…and again, and again!!!
Interesting, tasty comfort food served in a pretty setting with highly attentive (but not intrusive) service. Ample outdoor dining in a greenhouse like structure, with fresh flowers on each table.
Our weekday brunch included fried okra and devilled eggs that thrilled the taste buds of this expatriate Southerner, smoked salmon omelets, and a decomposed heuvos rancheros that offered a high-taste sampling of complementary flavors (black bean paste, avocado creme, eggs, pepper and onion on corn tortillas) in an unusual and pleasing presentation.
One error (onions in one of the omelets) was quickly rectified.
Upon arrival I was able to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather. The food is great and the atmosphere is nice.
The place is relaxing and quiet. It's tight inside. Fries were soggy with oil but the fish was ok.
Great food, service and atmosphere!
Loved the food! Great selection and awesome drinks.
I made reservations for my daughter and myself. We were seating upon arrival and our food was brought out within a timely manner. There was no rush and we didn't feel s if we were taking to long to enjoy our food. Outaide dining available also. I wil return to this restaurant.
Great place to eat after attending Van Gogh show. Outside tables were divided in a way that made it safe but also provided some intimacy, all while being outside. Service was super friendly. It was a busy night, but fun and glad we ate there.
The menu is very limited and the food was not of the quality expected. Ordered the fish and chips and my food was not hot at all.
Enjoyed the food and the waitress was nice, but a little slow
The food was really good and price was good portion just right and The drinks were really good 😊
The food was subpar and very disappointing for the price. If you are going to use instant mashed potatoes at least make them taste like they are real. The special (pork chop) was overcooked and could barely be cut with a steak knife. Greens were salty. Turkey burger had no flavor. There was a group that was so loud we could not have a conversation at our own table. Need to work on the acoustics in the restaurant.
Worst service ever !! Was very disappointed
They sat us earlier than our reservation since we arrived about 15 minutes early and they had space. That was great. The food was fresh and delicious. The staff was professional and courteous, and they never made us, as diners, feel rushed. There was r&b music playing throughout the establishment, so if you love that genre this place is definitely for you. 10/10 would definitely go again next time i’m in philly.
Food and drink was delicious! I will return.
The food wasn't great ...but when my food was sent back it came back out good . Service was good from the server, but the gentleman that came out to ask about how our food was had a attitude.
I booked a table for 4 this past Saturday 10/9/21 as a pre-Birthday Celebration for my wife and I and our dear friends.
Nicely adorned pleasant space. Interesting and diverse menu options.
(-) - Seated us right next to food order pick up area.
(-) - Our waiter broke a wine glass at our table.
(+) Enjoyed the salad options, hot chicken slider, short ribs, blackened catfish and fried shrimp basket.
(+) Seafood Gumbo was interesting, different, yet good. [Wasn't expecting or notified about the cream base]
(+) The Malbec was excellent!
(-) Inordinately long wait to bring our dessert order.
(+) Chocolate cake was decadently delicious
Willingly to give them another shot but will probably be a few months or more.
Perfect place to enjoy an intimate meal with someone
Great food & service!
Great food, great service.
My server was amazing and a great help with helping me to decide what I wanted.
The location and ambience are pleasant. The service is very friendly and efficient. The food was quite good overall— with the exception of the country fried chicken, which was extremely dried out and tough as shoe leather, and the greens, which were so salty as to make them inedible. Other than those two dings, we very much enjoyed our meal and we will definitely return for another meal.
