Using her culinary lens of American cuisine with world influences, the aroma of Mateo's cuisine immerses the senses the moment you walk in.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

We ate here because it is in the hotel in which we are staying. And we are so glad we did! Everything was fresh and delicious. My husband had the burger. It was absolutely delicious. My daughter had the fettuccine with vegetables. Very fresh vegetables. They take their garden and farm to table seriously. They grow many of their own vegetables. I had the Amish Chicken. Flavors were perfect. Chicken was moist and perfectly cooked. Last we had the Philly Cheesecake. Truly wonderful. Gone in 5 seconds! Eat here you won't regret it.

“Great Brulee Oatmeal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Square 1682 has a great breakfast menu, so it was hard to chose. The wait staff is very friendly and answered all my questions. I was very happy with the brulee oatmeal with bananas. I look forward to coming back and trying the omlettes and other selections.

Hi Becky.

My name is John Clarke and I am the Service Manager for Square 1682. I am very happy to hear that you are such a big fan of our extensive cocktail selection. Our Lead Bartender (now our Lead Bartender for all properties in Philadelphia!) has done a wonderful job infusing creative flavors with only the freshest ingrediants. We recently changed it up a little so please come back to try some of Chaunceys newest creations.
Warmest Regards,
John.

Great menu and food lives up to its description. It's a popular bar scene, but that makes it a lively place for a meal as well.

“Amazing calamari”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

One of the best I have had and the perfect appetizer before I went out for the evening. It had fried jalapenos thrown in there with the calamari. The sauce was a nice compliment
