Friend was in from out of town for the holiday, we were having brunch before his flight. I always like to try new places, hadn't been to Morea before. Made a res, then had to move the time up, no issues. We only had sandwiches, both very good, service was fine, but found it a bit odd that the server brought the check after clearing the table, didn't ask if wanted coffee or any dessert, not that we would/should have, but nothing was offered. I would recommend this place to others.

Food was ok. Drinks were cute but weak. The $25 seafood caesar salad wasn’t that great for that price. They had the nerve to use imitation crab meat and charge that much and give you 3 shrimp on wilted romaine.

Overall wonderful!! Service top notch and the food was really good as were the drinks especially the wine from the tap. I ordered the chicken and the spices and sides were amazing I would say chicken a little over cooked (better than not cooked enough) still fantastic and everyone else enjoyed their meals. Desserts are huge so definitely sharing

We thoroughly enjoyed the ahi tuna and hummus as starters. And the cauliflower steak was the best I've ever had. My husband had chicken that was a bit dry and our daugher enjoyed brussle and quinoia salad. The ambience was nice.
Our service was average: our server rarely checked on us, and although I would've ordered a second glass of wine, she never stopped back to inquire until she asked us if we saved room for dessert. Overall, we felt that the food was good. The service could've been better.

We got there early as we had a show at eight that night. We were able to sit at the bar. Garland was our bartender / server. Great food, interesting stories and a super experience. Highly recommend in a section of Philly that doesn’t have a lot of fine dining.

The whole experience of eating at Morea was very very nice. Our waitress was so pleasant and helpful, the cocktails were delicious and our meal well-prepared. We had the lollipop lamb chops and the braised short ribs. Both were excellent. Would definitely recommend.

We enjoyed our time at Morea. I had the seafood Caesar salad while my friend had the short ribs. My salad had roasted romaine that was perfect; I think my friend would have liked a bit less pepper on her short ribs but she still thought they were delicious. My specialty cocktail was good; she had whiskey. For dessert we split the deep-fried Oreos. The coffee was awesome. I don't know much about the inside noise level because we had outside tables. It was a cool night but they had these amazing gas-powered heaters and so we were very comfortable. The service was great; they were attentive and thoughtful.

We arrived early because we had theater tickets, so it was not very busy when we got there. Restaurant has a really cool vibe, beautiful atmosphere and nice decor. James, our server, is great. Personable, made some great suggestions I was very friendly and attentive. He recommended the fig and pear flatbread which was phenomenal and the short rib which was very tasty. We will be sure to stop back next time we are in the city!
