    Amazing fish and chips ! We came after a Phillies game and were seated right away. Everything we had was excellent but definitely don’t skip the fish and chips

    Food was excellent. Service too. AC was on too high and made it slightly chilly. Also tables in the bar room are a better experience.

    Very nice time at Dandelion. The food is excellent and a good value, it is not too noisy and is always consistent.

    I was there in time for their Afternoon tea menu, it was delightful. The English Waldorf salad was refreshing and lovely. The best part, was how seriously they took my allergies. They asked good questions and made sure my dining experience was safe.

    The Dandelion is one of those places that you always want to book; yet too often put it on hold to try some other new place. Well it took a college graduation to finally book a reservation. We are so glad we did! We went for lunch and it proved to be a great time. There were other large groups at the same time, but you didn’t notice. The smaller rooms kept noise at a minimum and the service was top notch! Cocktails are creative and tasty, the wine list is solid and the beer list is very impressive. One of our guests was thrilled to see Maine Lunch on the menu. He was a fan of the Dandelion in that alone. The appetizers were great— the humus, ricotta and curried deviled eggs were all a great start. Our party of 7 had an assortment of entrees that all proved to be delicious and well prepared. Even the Turkey sandwich had some flair and try to find a moister, tastier tandoori chicken in Philly than what you can get here! Casey, our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and techniques — but we really appreciated his candidate remarks about his favorites. You can trust the servers opinions in this place. Totally spot on! We are so glad that we finally went to the Dandelion. We will be back since there are plenty of things we want to try! Nice job and you really made a special day that much more special!

    waitress was super slow, angry and annoyed. crab croquettes tasted like tuna fish more than crab. salmon was supposed to be cooked medium, but was overdone. almost everything else was just mildly fair at best. ricotta toast was the only thing we thought was enjoyable. even our two cocktails were just ok. overall, the worst meal i've had at a Starr restaurant ever.

    We were from out of town and I would call this a neighborhood gem. Loved the atmosphere and the service was attentive without being intrusive. Casual and bar seating on the 1st floor with more tables upstairs. Loved the Tandori Chicken and the Fish and Chips. I wish we had had more time to enjoy apps and dessert! Next time!
