We came in with a group of 10 to celebrate finishing a project. The restaurant bent over backwards to accommodate our large group. Service was awesome. Food and cocktails were inventive and unusual and we thoroughly enjoyed everything! So happy we had our special night here. Highly recommend!!
Service and food were outstanding. Presentation was well done, especially table-side cocktail preparation. Ambience was superb thanks to decor and friendly service. Wonderful experience. Can't wait to return. Thank you.
The food was incredible, the service amazing, and the ambiance super chic. One of the best restaurants in Philly for a special occasion or for that one date you truly want to impress. The food portions are tapas style. You scan a code on the menu that promos a quiz about your lifestyle and body, and it recommends the best foods in the menu to match your results. Very impressed by the entire experience. I love the interior and chic ambiance. One of my favorite restaurants in Philly!
All food, cocktails, and wine were incredible. This is my second time to visit this establishment. I was not disappointed in any way. The staff and management were 5star. I can’t wait to go back again.
It was our first time, and we were extremely pleased. The service was excellent. The cocktails and food were unique and delicious. Would highly recommend to anyone who is interested.
Great Ambiance. A little pricey but a first class place.
Our bartender Skyler made the night very special for us. From what to drink to making amazing drinks and what to eat. Great to meet Steve and to see Jerome who work there. We will definitely be back everything was delicious
The food was absolutely amazing! However, if I’m being honest, the rack of lamb seemed underwhelming in flavor for the price point. Regardless, everything was cooked perfectly and the rabbit was to die for. Best risotto I have ever had and the drinks were unique and really good.
Disappointing. We made a reservation for an outdoors table, drove 50 miles to come only to find that the restaurant does not offer outdoors seating.
Came here with a group of 8 girls, including 1 vegan, 1 vegetarian, and 1 pregnant. Our server was attentive without being overbearing and was very knowledgeable about the food and drink menus. The presentation of everything was also wonderful and tasted delicious.
A great pre-show dining experience. We were greeted warmly and taken care of right away. Cocktails were amazing and so were the appetizers (they call them Indulge). The main courses were mixed. The wild mushroom polenta was a bit ordinary and not hot. My friend got the salmon and it was excellent. My husband got the kabobs which probably would have been better as a meat option but he ordered all vegetables which wasn’t really worth it (potatoes, tomatoes and onions) but he said they tasted good. The desserts didn’t wow us but ordered the poached pear which was too hard so disap. The food presentations were all wonderful and our waitstaff was very attentive and we never felt pressured. The manger also stopped by and he genuinely cared about our experience. The place got busy which was great to see but the noise level stayed low. I thoroughly recommend for a special experience.
i’ve been here a few times with friends and with my boyfriend and it’s always great! food is so tasty and the service is wonderful!
We booked a reservation here because of its variety of drinks and entrees. Unfortunately, many of these items weren't available when we dined there. We were told that they had run out of lemons and couldn't make a number of drinks, but it seems this would have been an issue easy to rectify. I specifically booked this restaurant for my sister's birthday because she loves rabbit, but they had run out of this and two other menu items. Additionally, the food was expensive give the overall flavors
Our first time on the second floor at Ancient Spirits - nice setup but pretty loud. Busy and service was good but slow - food as always was exceptional.
Beautiful place, service was great food was very tasteful, staff was very friendly and professional (clean)
This was our first visit to Ancient Spirits and Grille. Wow!! It was great. We were happy to meet Managers Jerome and Steve, but the star of our evening was server Ann!! Contemporary flavors from India are the point of the restaurant. The website that assists in selecting your food based on your body type and personality was fun to try.
We had the Chardonnay, the garlic naan, the lobster tail, and the salmon entree. All was fantastic. Instead of chips and dip, they provide rice cakes with four really fun seasonings. Very nice.
We can't wait for our next visit. This was a great experience. Thank you!!
Beautiful place. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding.
Food was good except lobster bisque was way to salty. Kitchen was backed up and crime brûlée took almost 30 minutes for desert and waited on hot tea and waited just as long and it was lipton. Server was good but stretched thin
If you are interested in Ayurveda you will love this place. Even if you are not, the food is delicious.
The food, the service, the restaurant are incredible. It was worth the 5 hour drive to Philadelphia to have such an amazing experience. We sat at the bar and Skylar was such a breath of fresh air after our trip. Super friendly and on top of everything. We will definitely return on our next trip
Delicious drinks and appetizers in an immersive setting that had a bit of a night club-ish vibe. Attentive and polished service.
Our waitress, Annemarie, was only on her second day and did a phenomenal job. The food is amazing, and we thoroughly enjoyed the cocktail selection with unique and fun accents!
This creation deserves a better cake. Flavors are lost and cannot support much other than the crumbled Lamb - which is flavorless.
Returned to Ancient Spirits and was not disappointed. The food and service were great.
First I have to say how friendly every one of the staff were. We had a wonderful wait person Jay. You could not ask for better! The cocktails and food were excellent with wonderful fresh flavors. All in all it was a marvelous experience and will be going back.
Awesome service and wonderful drinks and food.
Everything was perfect food was delicious ambiance was beautiful!
Jay was a wonderful server and the octopus was the most tender I’ve EVER had. We will return!
Dinner Date. Did the outside dining, decent weather to enjoy. Was close to the street and the Metro bus was definitely providing an unwanted breeze. The food was different in a good way. Waiter was great and the overall experience was good.
Loved the food/drinks and atmosphere! Great service, too! Will definitely be back!
Delicious, fun drink and a great menu. Highly recommend the kabobs and the grilled octopus. Brian was a great server!
Distinctive food, well-prepared. As someone unfamiliar with ayuvedic thinking, the rationale for the restaurant and its holistic was not especially clear, but it didn't matter. We enjoyed the experience, and would consider returning.
Unfortunately we are traveling and live in California but we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
The food presentation was exquisite and the meal was delicious!
If we lived in the area we would definitely return.
It was my birthday and everyone was very welcoming and pleasant. The ambience was beautiful
Had a great experience. The food is great and the service is excellent.
Had a great experience dining here with a friend. Interesting menu. Excellent service. We both enjoyed the food. Thumbs up on all counts.
Excellent food, uneven service
The service was amazing and the food was so refreshing and delicious. Very beautifully styled on the plate and it tasted even better.
It was the greatest experience I could have hoped for. The Romeo and Juliet was amazing. Everything was so delicious and exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend!
Outstanding service, amazing food and drinks
