The outside seating was extremely hot and humid. I would recommend they get some fans.
Very comfortable dining for an outdoor experience
Great food and excellent service. Their outdoor seating was across the street and very spacious. Will go again!
Great food! So nice to get out..thanks
Food was amazing! The outdoor seating under the canopy on 2nd was cool and comfortable. Service was top notch!
This place is incredible! The freshest seafood I’ve ever had, and the service was amazing. Dining here was a great experience and I will definitely be back.
First time at bistro Romano and our experience could not have been better. Due to other tables hanging around they did not have a table ready when we got there however the servers and managers were incredibly accommodating and apologetic, we wait 5 min max while they came up with a solution. From the time we got there till we left the service was impeccable. Our server, I believe his name was Sean, was amazing, some of the best service I’ve ever gotten. And everything we ordered was amazing. Some of the best food we’ve had. They did a really nice job making things work with all the restrictions. We have been recommending this place to all of our friends since dining at bistro Romano and will definitely be back
The food and cocktails were delicious. The waiters were excellent. They had a space at Head house square set up with social distance. The servers brought the food safely covered to the table. We really enjoyed our dinner.
Great experience with outdoor dining. We sat in Headhouse Square. Limited menu, but absolutely fantastic food, drinks, and quick service.
Everything was amazing. I wish there was more selection on the menu, but I understand why it was selected option. The server spoke clear and made me and my date very comfortable. Definitely looking to go back
The service was top notch. The General Manager was friendly and funny. The food was very fresh and delicious. I would come again and bring my friends.
Where do I begin??? This place takes dining to a whole new level.
It’s amazing they’re finally open again - albeit small. Two tables! More to come.
Their service is impeccable. Wait staff is so kind, focused on safety, attentive and informed.
Amazing drinks and wine.
The food - food from the Gods. So crazy good. Every. Last. Morsel.
I’m new to the neighborhood (not the restaurant). This is my new “go to” spot. Be back soon!
Everything about this dining experience was superb! The server was attentive, efficient and friendly (she even brought us a champagne toast to celebrate my boyfriends birthday which was a nice surprise). The food was beyond amazing! Thank you for a wonderful evening
Food was great. Glad they are open with the quarantine. We sat outside and the waiter was very attentive. Will def be back.
We celebrated my daughter’s 21st birthday and the Cate, our server, was gracious and timed our meals perfectly.
We made reservations weeks ago for March 15, which happened to be the day before the state/city closed restaurants for dine-in service. But the date was meaningful to us so we kept the reservation. We had the place to ourselves for most of our dinner! But in our booth it didn't feel awkward, and the ambiance of the cozy basement seating and crooner music is always great anyway. Our server was great, and unfailingly cheerful; she seemed very glad that we were there! They couldn't make their Caesar salad tableside as they usually would, which of course was understandable but it was still worth ordering for their house-made dressing. Both our entrees were very good, and the gelato dessert was a perfect portion size for splitting after a filling meal. All of that is a tad pricey, of course, but for a special occasion is definitely worth it.
The waiter was great, the hostess and the manger was great as well. Really good experience
Cool Ambiance and great food. We did the chef tasting and were very please.
An amazing meal in a very cool setting, certainly. The food was great. Beyond great. The service was above average. However it was pricey. Otherwise an outstanding meal, but I just can't say it was a good value since the prices were so high.
My fiancé and I went to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. We arrived and we seated promptly. They accommodated all of my requests and helped create the best and most romantic night. Sand the food was outstanding. Highly recommend the house made ricotta. We’ll be going back
Visited here for the first time on March 13,2020 , love it, Hubby & I enjoyed ourselves, The lovely hostess didn’t get her name, but she was so nice & kind and very hospitable, She got us to or seats, & we sat & our waiter Mr. Shawn very awesome guy, took our order & was on top of things, making sure we had what we wanted, & making sure we were ok, The manager came by to check on us, I mean it was a awesome experience, we will be going back, for the prices it was worth it, love it. Environment was very nice , a Good outing, we supposed to went on our anniversary day but it took us two weeks to get there, lol but it was worth it, love the music in there also.
Delicious creative drinks at the bar then went downstairs to the dining room. Feels like you’re walking into a wine cellar. The waiter was attentive and friendly. We were 2 couples. They made a caesar salad tableside which was very good. I had a duck ragu buccatini which was out of this world . My husband had a juicy pork cutlet that was cooked to perfection. Our friends enjoyed fettuccine bolognese and the shrimp dish in a light lobster broth not heavy and very flavorful. There was also an amazing wine list. We are all Jersey foodies but have been going to the Philly flower show the last few years and always head over to bistro romano to end the night and they never disappoint
Dinner was excellent. The flat bread the charcuterie board and Caesar salad was outstanding so was the bottle of wine and the service and the staff. The place is so quaint we love sitting at the bar . bartender Sean is always wonderful and makes the best drinks
Very nice spot. Had to wait to be seated though, but it was a very busy night.
Another outstanding meal at Bistro Romano! My colleagues and I dined here last Saturday This is my favorite restaurant in Philly. Super charming with incredible food. I had the chef’s tasting menu...delicious! Super chef!!! My colleagues had the octopus and calamari appetizers, Caesar salad and lobster ravioli. All were fabulous!the chocolate cake is fabuloso!
The owner clearly takes pride in Bistro Romano. Thank you!!!
Emily is JUST WONDERFUL! She’s a keeper. Treat her well. She is on pointe with everything. She’s got personality, pays attention to detail, is professional and has etiquette.
This care made our night besides a good wine & food.
We have a great experience and already started recommending others to your restaurant.
See you soon!
Everything was great as usual our waitress made the best Caesar salad and the food was outstanding the atmosphere in its place is really great ,we will definitely be back thanks for all the great work and delicious food
Excellent food and service! I would recommend this place to everyone!
All occasion place original architecture oh old townhouse. Nice waiter, good service. All pasta made in house, delicious taramisu.
A very good "go-to" restaurant. The food is always good, the service nice, the ambience pleasant, and a good value.
The service was amazing. My wife and went for our anniversary and they put rose petals on our table and even brought us each a glass of champagne. The food was amazing, we both had the lobster ravioli and fried calamari.
Out of town guest
The food and romantic atmosphere were both amazing.
Favorite date night spot after a long week. Everything was fabulous. Never disappoints.
Bistro Romano is a great restaurant that we have been going to since 1998 and it never disappoints.
The only thing I realized it had been 3 or so years since we were able to make it there :(
It is almost a well-kept secret.
Food, service, the atmosphere is always great. Prices a very reasonable for Philidelphia.
Very very nice experience! Attention to detail with everything but the way people were seated. Wasnt crowded yet we had a very loud intoxicated group seated next to us when there were several other areas to seat them. My only complaint.
Always a great night out at Bistro Romano. The food and service was both excellent. A great atmosphere for a couples dinner.
very nice piano bar. dinner seating in the basement has a lot of character. nice and quiet on sundays. great specials and happy hour
The food and service were excellent. Great ambience especially the piano player in the bar area. Great place to enjoy the evening with family and friends and have a great time.
