    Just what I hoped for

    Have visited Philly before and wanted to try City Tavern. Finally got the chance tonight on our latest visit, and in a word, excellent. Husband had the duck and said it was the best he ever had. I had the Chef's home-made veal sausage - delicious. Fin

    As Good as Ever

    Pepperpot soup and cornmeal oysters were great. Entree salad of crab and pork tenderloin were excellent. Best mashed potatoes of any restaurant in years. Great service and knowledgeable staff.

    Must Eat Here!

    I read some negative reviews and had some locals roll their eyes BUT if you are visiting Phily, you must eat here.! We ate here after exploring Independence Hall, etc so it kept with our theme for the day. The food was OUTSTANDING! From my rochefort sal

    I won't go to Philadelphia without at least one meal here

    We spent a bundle but it was worth every penny. The beer sampler is great. Scrumptous chocolate mousse cake ala Martha Washington.

    I will go back

    I was suprised the other reviews were so bad. I regularly eat out and enjoy a wide variety of ethnic cuisines. German food is not known for its flair that you might expect from a place like Amada or Tequila's. Which are two of my favorite places in the c

    Very Disappointing!!!

    Party of 8 all felt the waiter to be unattentive and uninterested. Salads done very nicely, but $6 for a "cup" of soup that tastes like water? Beef medallions and Trout were nothing special, but the Pot pie undercooked, and filled with nothing but peas. T
