This place was fabulous and packed all the time. Now, only 3 tables at lunch tome. The roll on my tuna same inch was so stale, size of tuna was small and dry. Very very sad.

It was a great visit to Banks and Bourbon to celebrate my mother’s 83 rd birthday. The waiter was excellent, kind, and courteous and the food was tasty. They also helped in the celebration by bring out a special birthday plate of goodies. Thank you Banks and Bourbon.

I’ve stayed at Loews Philadelphia on numerous occasions . I had only had desert at Bank & Bourbon.I was celebrating with my son. He loves a good steak so I decided to give it a try instead

Great steak, I had the NY strip it was fabulous,. A delightful char on the surface, but still medium rare. It was serve sliced which at first put me off but it turned out that I liked it. I was one of the best steaks I have had. It was served with a small salad which I thought was odd. I ordered the mushrooms as a side they were good. For dessert I had the ice cream sandwich it was really good. The coffee was great. I had a cocktail that was great and not over priced. Overall I can't wait to go back.

Perhaps I was there on an off night, but everything--everything--was bland and underseasoned and the pork chop was cooked to the point of being tough and dry. The service was excellent and the oysters and cocktails were very good.

We shared 3 appetizers and each got a salad. The tuna tartar was delicious, the meatballs and linguini were just ok. The beet salad was fabulous! Portions are small but we were full. Overall a nice evening out, but I will probably try other restaurants before returning.

Decent brunch spread. I opted for a burger which was tasty, but on the dry side... Roll was a little dry, too. Parmesan French Fries were excellent... Service was very polite and accommodating.

Server was great, but steak was way overcooked. Server offered to take it back, but when everyone at your table has been served you just don’t want to wait. Not sure I’d be interested in going back. .

Food was less than impressive and overpriced. Checked that one of my list and no need to go back. Basically your overpriced hotel restaurant and bar with substandard food and high prices.

Previously dined here a couple of months back on Christmas Eve and it was good. Tonight it was a train wreck. We had to wait well past our reservation time to be seated. I had to ask the waiter to speak up and not mumble.

It was not made clear that the only menu was for Valentines day, which was the day prior. Probably the best thing we ordered was the cheese board. $15 for 3 cold fried oysters does not cut it. The pear salad was bizarre. My filet mignon was dry and crusty. I had to remind the waiter to bring out the fries. Our waiter was clueless. Won't be going back.

We had an 8:15pm reservation and were seated 30 minutes late. The service was very slow and the waiter was snippy and did the least amount of work possible. The food took forever despite the menu being prefix. The only saving grace was that the drinks at the bar while waiting were great!

Went for Valentine’s Day dinner and the 2+ hour experience fell short in every category. The server complained all night he had too many tables to give us the attention needed, the ambiance was terrible, zero atmosphere, and when the food finally did come out it was cold and bland. Absolutely terrible from start to finish.

Ugh! So disappointing.
The restaurant was very pretty. The food was not worth the price and not great. I have an onion allergy so they appeared to be cautious of what I could have. They told me the appetizer I wanted I couldn’t have. So I picked another one. Thought I was good until I noticed what I picked was covered in onions. So I couldn’t eat it. Thought my dinner would be fine because they didn’t tell me it had onion in it. Nope. COVERED in onions too. Luckily I could eat around them. At least I didn’t have to worry about dessert (which was small but delicious). They should’ve been way more careful. Portions were small, we were still hungry at the end of dinner and went to another place for other foods. Probably only coming back for happy hour but definitely not to eat again. We feel like it was a waste of money.

The server was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Food was delicious (try the pork belly).
They have a really extensive bourbon list!

Wonderful experience. Drinks were amazing. A little pricey for brunch so having an appetite will give you the most value for your buck. Service was great and brunch seating wasn’t too crowded on a Saturday. Would absolutely come back for more bourbon

Filet Mignon and Brussel Sprouts were amazing, as was the cheese platter. Great value on wines by the bottle. Only disappointment was the oysters - really fishy. Bar was hopping - bartender made a great martini

WE were in town for a convention. THis place was convenient to the Convention Center.
Physically very chilly. We wore our coats to dine. Onion soup was dishwater. A taste of ham was nice but a rather ordinary selection. Meatballs and octopus were okay.
Chicken for 2 was enough for 4--but had no flavor. Would have been good for a salt free diet. The person who ordered the whole fish in a stew sent it back. Not only was it cold it was also NOT FRESH. Smelly off tasting dorade.
Best thing was the rye flight and the bourbon flight.
Convention was fun and we'll never be back. They did take the fish stew off the check!

Although the service was professional and attentive, the restaurant (surrounding the bar) was not at all condisive to conversation. I ordered the pork chop, which for some inexplicable reason was smeared with chunky jalapeno jam. Why would anyone do this to a pork chop? And the underlying wilted greens were accidentally (I suspect) over-salted.

Nice hotel restaurant with plenty of private spaces for dining. We arrived early 545 on a Saturday so it was just getting warmed up. By the time we left it was busy with convention people etc....Food was very good with a healthy flair to it.
