Foursquare Tips

  • Bill Addison: "Order 2 dishes: lobes of sashimi-grade scallops backstroking through buttermilk & a bowl of dashi decorated with trompe l'oeil, including gelatinized cubes of crme fraiche & pea pods."
  • Get the fried duck leg. Or get 5.
  • You must try Cope's corn raviolo. South Street chef Peter Serpico uses the Pennsylvania staple, along with chorizo, white cheese, pickled and roasted onions, sour cream and lime in his ravioli.
  • Get a seat at the counter to watch the kitchen in action. Order the deep fried duck leg and the yuzu curd.
  • Pretty fucking good.
  • Having proven to be one of the most inventive and beautiful restaurants around, Serpico could be just the thing to turn South Street around. [Eater 38 Member]
  • The manager, Rich, is a super awesome dude. And so is the bartender, Brian. Plus the diver scallops were impeccable and there's a cocktail with Maneschevitz.
  • Start with a bowl of wilted shiso leaves, charred pea tendrils, and sugar snap peas whose pods, bearing icy cucumber pebbles, float like little green canoes on a clear dashi broth.
  • I'll have one of everything, please! Best meal in Philly, hands down.
  • Nice restaurant, good flavors and atmosphere. Ask for foie gras alternatives, they are happy to substitute.
  • One of the best restaurants in Philadelphia hands down. Try the wings!
  • One of the greatest dining experiences out there. Beautiful environment, amazing team and inspired dishes. I'm rarely this wow'd by a meal but Serpico is sheer brilliance.
  • raw scallops & deep fried duck leg.
  • amazing food. get Korean fried chickens and the pork belly!
  • Amazing food and ambiance. Peter Serpico takes his food to another level. Try the long hot ramen. It's amazing
  • Dog food. Overpriced confusing nonsense. #basic
  • Amazing chicken wings, different varieties of flavors, very crispy on the outside but juicy on the inside. Everything is tasty!
  • So I can't suggest the Tasting Menu. I was hoping for some of the menu highlights. Lots of fishy scary salty stuff instead. Order what sounds delish from the regular menu.
  • Food was delicious. We sat at the kitchen bar and guessed what dishes were being made. Great night even though the ac unit rained on me a little.
