  • Currently, best restaurant in Philly! Have the scallops, tuna or gnocchi! And finish with pudding!
  • The gnocchi might be my favorite thing I've ever had.
  • Intimate BYOB with seasonal chef's tasting menus in South Philly
  • Service was top-notch. The lamb neck may have been my favorite. Perfect dinner option for special occasions.
  • Kobe beef was amazing
  • For its style and for what it is, it's an amazing restaurant. Wonderful experience to share with a love one/ friend.
  • Hard to get a reservation.tiny and expensive. After two months of anticipation it was still one of the best meals I've had in philly.
  • James Beard Foundation Best New Restaurant 2014 nominee.
  • So worth the wait for reservations. Best tasting menu in Philly.
  • Getting a table at "Top Chef" Nicholas Elmi's tiny BYOB can be difficult, but when you get there, you may have your best meal of the year. Elmi may be best know for his ricotta gnocchi.
  • We dream of Nicks Ricotta Gnocchi with Pancetta, as well as the Foie Gras appetizer.
  • Chef/Owner Nick Elmi's new Modern-French influenced American cuisine is some of the most beautiful and delicious food we tasted in 2013! You cant go wrong with anything on the menu.
  • Outstanding balance - try as many dishes as possible and bring great wine
  • Loved the tuna appetizer!
  • Getting a reservation is tricky, but it's worth it for Nick Elmi's elegant, French-inspired food.
  • The gnocchi was sooooooo good.
  • Perfect for a night out together. The food and atmosphere are outstanding!!!
  • Albacore Tuna is a must.
  • You must get your reservations in now! Top achef Nick Elmi is an amazing talent! Treat yourself to Laurel!
  • The wolfish and the quince dessert are both great seasonal choices! Loved all the other courses we had, as well.
