It really breaks your heart to see such outstanding food and service get so little reward. One can but hope that "The Choice" will survive Covid-19 and return to a much more normal status where the restaurant has way more than a dozen patrons seated at any time. Food this good, and service this good deserves a far, far larger audience. Sure, it's really intimate, it feels like you have your very own chef - that's all very well and good but, surely, that's not a sustainable business model. It's certainly way, way less than the chef and his staff deserve.
The quality of this restaurant continues to be outstanding. We do not have one complaint other than how sad it is that the public is still fearful about dining out. We hope that a restaurant of this caliber can survive during this economic pandemic.
Very professional staff and provide very good service.
Extensive menu, great taste and presentation
Our meal was so very tasty, the soft shell crab appetizer is a must try. The small intimate atmosphere make you feel like you are the only table in the room. The dishes are creative and truly tasty.
This was the first time I visited Choice, having heard good things about it. The food was decent but the room was so noisy that I could hardly hear. The ambiance is nothing and needs to be warmed up. good selection on the menu . we ordered a bunch of apps and they all came out at once leaving some of hem to get cold. Better choices on the Mainline.
Very good food with a comprehensive menu. Service was prompt and courteous. Excellent and diverse menu. Unfortunately the ambience of the restaurant does not match the quality of the food and service. A bit pricey, but overall a good value.
The Choice is a fine dining restaurant, and in my opinion, the finest on the Main Line!
I've been here several times for dinner and have always enjoyed it but this past week the service, cuisine, music, aroma - not so much.
Food is very good and so is the service. The only problem we have is they have raised prices to a very high level and we cannot go as often as we would like.
We have been to Choice 5 or 6 times. Always very good.
The Choice is a Bryn Mawr gem.... the service and the food were spectacular. My only suggestion would be to offer more dessert selections but then again you may not need it after eating every morsel of your meal. We thank Main Line Restaurant Review page on FB for the wonderful suggestion.
Dined w my husband and another couple on a Thursday evening. It took a little while for a server to come and take our order- but once she did the service was fine. The appetizers and entrees were delicious. The creme brulee was disappointing. There was a really thick crust of crystallized sugar on the top- didn't taste carmelized- more like melted and hardened pure sugar- which overpowered the thin layer of custard beneath. We will definitely eat here again- but likely will skip the dessert the next time.
The food at The Choice is superb, the quality the food is excellent, the presentation exquisite. It is nice to enjoy dinner where it is obvious that the chef has taken the job of preparing a meal seriously.
the food is great. there is a nice variety on the menu with several different fish options. all our dishes were prepared very well. and it is byob!
The menu looks fantastic, but the execution is poor. For the price, the food should be much better. It was rather mediocre. Not BAD, just OK. There are too many other choices where the food is better for similar or less money.
We were the first to be seated for our 8:15 reservation and the last to be served . My salad came out with raw unsafe meat I ordered it medium . The lamb chops were delicious but a few for the cost of my meal . I thought the entire menu was over priced for what it is . The staff are not very good and the didn’t have enough staff. The staff that have been there serve a Brest in the area . The other people just need to n more patient with you all m I
The ambiance was not great at all. The food was super, but for those prices, I expect to feel a little spoiled. No linen tablecloths and the seating was so basic. I really felt that owners could have used that space to create something cozier and more special.
Great authentic European cuisine style. A bit pricey with a small portion . Overall, delighted experience!!
Food was absolutely incredible. The variety and the preparation were both five star. The service, setting everything was perfect. I can't wait to head back!
except for two meals that were not served hot and when the meals came back from the kitchen, still not hot, the dinners were very good.
I would like to suggest to the owners that they publish, on the internet or on the menus, if you attend an early sitting, the odds of being asked to leave by 8:30, for the next sitting, is highly probable.
We were just about done, and yes, my guests were a little slow in ordering.
Very creative dishes
Consistently very good quality
Very attentive service
Chef owner very pleasant.
Over all - one of the best restaurants on Mainline !!!
I was very disappointed! I ordered a salad with dressing on the side but it came with dressing on the salad. The salad dressing was extremely salty! I ordered the halibut with mushrooms and a sauce. The mushrooms were and sauce were cold. The halibut was lukewarm and overcooked. Not one server asked us at any point during our meal if we enjoyed the food. The service was very inattentive!
Excellent in every way!
Food and service was excellent. Prices were very high relative to other local restaurants.
My favorite Main Line Restaurant.
Great for foodies, large menu selection plus several specials. Interesting fusion of flavors from appetizers to entrees to desserts. Service was attentive, pleasant and helpful. Well worth a visit and a return.
MY HUSBAND IS NOT A BIG FISH LOVER, BUT CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN FOR THE SCALLOPS. I HAD THE PHILO ENCRUSTED SCALLOPS, AND HE ORDERED THE SCALLOPS WITH POTATOES AND VEGETABLES . THE TABLE NEXT TO US HAD THE LAMB CHOPS AND RAVED ABOUT IT. STAY FOR DESSERT!! THE APPLE PIE IS A MUST.
Food was phenomenal, delicious. Excellent portions .
Fabulous, as always!
After reading some of the earlier reviews I thought that I may be disappointed with this restaurant but I was pleasantly surprised as were my dining partners. Food was good as was the service. I’m looking forward to returning again soon.
The presentation and quality of the food is top notch. They bake their own desserts and they are scrumptious.
This BYOB is phenomenal!!! We had the oysters, the phylodough scallops, the snapper, and the NZ lamb chops. Everything was absolutely delicious. Made another reservation for later this month. Can't wait to go back!
Great evening with great dinner and wonderful hospitality. We’ll be back.
We enjoyed tuna tartare and octopus as starters which were delicious and generous portions. For entrees we tried the halibut and the flounder special and found them to be fresh and well prepared. Will definitely go back
Nice BYOB dining experience. Food is always very good at the Choice.
We had a lovely lunch. The food and service were excellent.
The Choice is a no-brainer. Excellent food, perfect fish, absolutely delicious, and that's true each and every visit, as well. Great service, attentive service, fair prices and neighborhood vibe. Highest recommendation.
This was our first time dining here and we had a wonderful experience. The food was excellent, as well as beautifully prepared and presented, and the service was great. We will be back.
Food was outstanding. Love that it’s a BYO
