Poor service, waited 25 minutes for someone to actually come and see if we even wanted a glads of water when we were seated.
Great time at Pod. Our server Jeffrey was amazing, he made the night that much more special. He was one of the best servers I’ve ever seen.
My wife and I come to Pod for our Anniversary for the past 7 years. We love the place and have talked it up so much. My daughter had been dying to come here for some time. We went this weekend for her birthday dinner. So the food was still great. Service was a little slow. We were there early and the place was not busy at all. Overall, just felt it lost something. The big things were our favorite drinks were taken off the menu. AND the Fluffernutter dessert was removed. That was an iconic dessert and they got rid of it. Seems a little petty, but when things were taken off the menu in the past, they still would make it for you when asked.
It felt like the restaurant has declined since I was last there 2 years ago. We had incredibly slow service and the place was about half- occupied. We never received the drinks we had ordered. The food was fine but not great. Based on our latest experience there I would not recommend it to a friend. There are too many other options out there where the restaurant seems to care that you're there.
Dinner was great. We ended up with a smaller party than reserved. Tried the lobster & duck fried rice for the first time and it was AMAZING. The truffle oil really set the meal off. My sister also tried the cheesesteak boa buns for the first time as well. She loved them. Overall we had a nice chill dinner for my sister’s birthday. She was happy!!
The atmosphere was modern and cozy. I went on a Tuesday night to beat the weekend crowd. Although the plated food was cooked to perfection and very tasty, I was a bit disappointed in the sushi. It was not flavorful. I would recommend this place for the drinks and hot plates!
I’ve had better and over priced
Food was overall great. The only down note was the wagyu special, which picked a cut of beef that was very chewy. Not what I expect from Wagyu. Everything else was excellent. "Cheesecake" dessert and Korean ribs especially noteworthy.
Noise level was quite high, which made it challenging for the seniors in our party.
My sister and I stopped for dinner before a concert, and it was an easy and fabulous experience for people who don’t live nearby. Everything was wonderful, and there was a huge variety of foods - I wish we could’ve tried all of them!
A bit noisy but great food and service! Even the non seafood eaters were extremely happy with their meal.
I've gone to Pod every year or so since it's opened. In short, the place needs some freshening up. Every thing looks worn...the furniture, bathrooms, the back/event area. On the plus side, the food remains fantastic. The sushi dishes we had were melt in your mouth awesome. Funny, the first time I had Chimay blue was at Pod. The beer list has since been very scaled back. It is however, varied and my wife and I each found something interesting and good.
Heading to the Tower theater in Upper Darby P.A. Found this Steven Starr sushi restaurant in Western Philly. Food very good but not spectacular. A little pricy. College crowd and a pleasant experience. We’d go back.
Pod never disappoints. Lovely meal. Not rushed. Took people from Florida and New Zealand. They can’t wait to go back!
Service not great
Great sushi in a modern environment. Was worth the price.
Food was good but not great, it was over priced. Restaurant looks modern but restrooms need update and a deep clean.
Pod is great for a relaxing evening with friends. The vibe is cool & laid-back. Happy hour specials are a great deal. Love the pods with lighting buttons. Servers are friendly & helpful.
It has been several years since we had been to Pod. We took our 9 and 10 year old, and they loved the ambiance and food. We were lucky enough to get a pod, they loved playing with the lights, sadly only about 3 of them actually worked.
The bathrooms desperately need updating, they were gross.
Great family dinner ! Food was delicious and service was great! Yummy desserts too!
great service, mod looking place and fun table because we sat in a true pod and you can change the light colors within the pod if you want to. Very close to Upenn, incredible passion fruit shaved ice desert. All 6 of us liked our meals.
POD was a lovely experience with an exceptional staff.
Great food. Service was ok. Our waiter stopped by to say hello a few times. Lighting a bit of a challenge to see either menu or food.
Horrible service-seated at 8:15 for our 8:15 reservation and didn't have anyone come by our table until I asked around 20 minutes later. Then took another 10 minutes (again after asking) to place our order. Server was very kind and remorseful, but the management could have cared less. The food, however, was quite good. Not good enough, however, to overcome the bad service.
Service was very slow drinks came out after the food food came out all at different times but was very good
Lots of fun eating in the pod! Love the dim sum
Great service. Food was excellent.
The sushi and octopus I ordered were excellent. The vegetables were not good at all. Too greasy.
It was great! Loved the feel of the place and the sound dampening on the ceiling helped make conversation easier. Next time I want to sit at the sushi belt.
Food quality less than prior meals. Sushi size small
We were 6 people and we all thought the food and service was great but the appearance needs to be freshened up. Becoming very dated.
Great first time dinner at Pod. We will return. The food was fabulous and not very expensive.
Overpriced. food isn't great just the interior is fancy
A great night to celebrate a long-time friend coming into town. With sensational food and great drinks, this was the exact light-hearted atmosphere we wanted and the food was absolutely so fresh and so amazing!
Daughter’s 21st gathering. Very accommodating with all the gifts and serving if premade desert. Great experience and staff were fantastic.
Pod honored our reservation. Service was excellent. Food very good. Expensive for an everyday restaurant! Excellent tempura shrimp roll with Spicey tuna. Will return sometime in the future
our waiter was never to be found.... drinks took forever and we waited a long time for the food...
Generally excellent. But needs a better dessert menu.
Amazing food, over priced Prosecco, but an offer all must go to!!
You wont be disappointed
We had a lovely meal on Saturday 9/28/19. We had two rolls and pork belly dim sum. All were excellent . Then we had lobster-duck rice and crab rice. Loved both. Dessert was cloud cheese cake, yuzu ice cream and black current jam. Jam tasted like back in Finland. Service was great.
Restrooms left room for improvement.
