Avance really shows that Philly can hold an amazing restaurant. We experienced New York style service to go with food that you can't find anywhere else. The staff was smart and attentive, they seemed to know everything about what was being delivered. Our table of 4 appreciated the in sync delivery of each course. It was fun to be a part of. The food was good, but not the best I've had. The appetizers were amazing, the foie - I can't put words... However, my swordfish was overcooked and my wife's duck was undercooked. These things happen but the duck was clearly raw when it was delivered. Someone should have said something before it got to us. Probably opening kinks. The desserts left a bit to be desired. We'll go back as everyone took great care of us, hosts, servers, bartender who came up and stirred my manhattan, to the managers who were jovial and friendly. One even got our taxi so we didn't have to wait out in the cold. Oh and it's great they have a 'coffee guy'. We don't drink coffee but it was still cook to have someone come out and discuss it with you! Best of luck Avance we will be back soon.
