Great streetside dining with friendly and fast service. Food was a great plant based alternative, as vegans we appreciated the range of options and creative takes on small plates.

Creative, fun food that makes use of every aspect of dining - presentation, texture, pairing, and of course flavor. Have been here before, will be back again and again.

Went here during the pandemic. There was outside seating right next to the street. It was an interesting experience but not a fan of the outside seating in that setting. Service was excellent despite the circumstances, food was good. Definitely would go back.

We waited 25 minutes after being seated before our waitress arrived to the table. & another 30+ before we received our mediocre food.

The service and food were good, but forget the dessert. We tried 2/3 and one if them was too sweet, the other one (lemon cake) inedible. Also, the seating/table arrangement was pretty uncomfortable.

My partner and I went to visit Philly for a quick weekend trip this past week and visited the locations every single day - the food is amazing, the drinks are soooo good and the staff goes above and beyond for you! We can’t wait to come back soon and wanted to say thank you for making this weekend great :)

I could not have asked for a better experience! It started to POUR while we were eating and the staff could not have been more helpful! They brought out rags and more umbrellas. I felt so bad that they got soaked, but they were so helpful. A wonderful experience, despite the rain.

Always a favorite in Philadelphia. Everyone loves the food, even non vegans. The skewers were excellent and of course the potato croquettes were a favorite along with the ricotta. The summer punch was delicious too. . . light and refreshing!

My partner and I visit Charlie for most birthday and anniversary celebrations. We’re from Lancaster but like to visit Philly and hit all the good vegan spots. The food is always great, but what made this visit so special was that our server had the chef make us a dessert for our anniversary to surprise us. They don’t even have a dessert menu right now, but he made an amazing lemon cake and stopped by to congratulate us. Thanks for another lovely date night!

This place is all about the cocktails, which might be what it’s known for. Went due to the vegan food which was a let down but the drinks and service were fantastic.

General manager was hella cool, told us the history of the place. Really outstanding service. Favorite drinks was the berry vodka and the drink of the day (had a mix of guava, brandy, and other things). Would most definitely come back.

We were looking for vegan dining options in downtown Philly and were very pleased to choose Charlie was a Sinner for our meal. The drinks were very good, the plates delicious and beautifully presented, and the service was fantastic.
