While I embrace change and appreciate how competitive the restaurant industry is, I feel that Le Bec has gone from a dining experience that seemed effortless on staff, and now having bright but unseasoned staff. With such beautiful surroundings and the hopes for an elegant...More

This past Sunday we had brunch at Le Bec Fin in Philadelphia and it was very special. The service and attentiveness of the staff alone made it special, but the food knocked the ball out of the park. I've never had salmon that had been...More

One of the absolute best lunches of my life was consumed at Le Bec Fin on a recent Saturday. Everything you would expect from such a fine dining establishment was present -- a beautiful, traditional salle a manger; professional, efficient and attentive service; and delicious,...More

I ate here as part of a group business meal. We ate from an arranged menu, which might differ from the restaurant's typical offerings, but I have to assume that the quality is always the same. The food was very good - especially the wild...More

Traveling alone with an expense account that had been gathering dust, I opted for the off-and-on (now on) best restaurant in Philly. They had fallen on hard times but I wouldn't have guessed it--seem to be fully recovered. I had the $85 four-course meal (with...More

We ate in Le Bar downstairs. I had the marrow, served in a bone. It was delightful. The creme brulee was also the best of the best. It is that which all others should be judged. A testimony to the world class dining experience to...More
