People weren't lying when they said Ms Tootsie's was the best! It's so true from the service right down to the all important thing, the food. The atmosphere was terrific, and the soft R&B playing in the background sets the mood just right. The waiters and waitresses were as nice as can be. The food was extravagant. And when I say food I mean all of it from their BBQ ribs to their sweet potato pie. I would live there just to be fed their delicious Caesar salad with salmon. Five stars all the way from this critic.

The experience I had dining at tootsie's was the best black experience I had in a while in philadelphia. This authentic african american resturant reminds me of when we as african americans loved and respected each other. David's, hospitality makes you feel like your at home. My sisters and I will be coming back to tootise's to celebrate our birthday this weekend. Carol, Stay blessed

I just ate here on a Sat. night around 1am and we had reservations but we still had a long wait..being that its so small. The food was great, very tasty. Only thing I didnt like was the fact that there are ceiling fans blowing and at the same time cooling off the food at a faster pace. I enjoyed the atmosphere over-all. Just wish it was bigger, so that more people could fit in and not have to wait so long.

Eating out at Ms. Tootsie's is more than just going out to dinner, it's "brotherly love" on a plate. The dining room is cozy yet chic, the staff are welcoming and attentive, and the food is absolutely delicious. My catfish was fried just right, and I could probably eat that mac and cheese once a week! Don't forget about dessert, the sweet potato cheesecake just melted in my mouth! 5 stars for Keven Parker and this gem of a restaurant.

You do not have to be African American or from the south to prepare soul food. I engage in all types of cooking, East Indian, Italian, Chinese etc. and I am none of the above. The individual that wanted more cornbread needs to read the lastest health issues concerning our nation: over indulging in fatty, sugary, salty foods makes you fat and cause other diseases. Remember-moderation.

it has been awhile since I've dined at Ms.Tootsies due to the simple fact that the food was poor. I have read the reviews and I see that the food has not changed at all .

well I personally don't think the food could be called soul food..That's not real down home soul cooking...How you gonna have a puerto rican cooking soul food...that makes no sense...I heard the smothered turkey chops was really good, so that's what I ordered..however they were fried hard with gravy poured on top..The macaroni tasted like it came from the box, the potatoes in my potato salad was not done, the greens were not even cut, they were very big leaves, so you would need a real big mouth to eat them..Now the icetea was excellent, I think I got full off of the icetea...the cornbread was good too, but they could of gave me more than 1 piece...I pretty much wasted my money, I took all my food home, and not even my kids wanted to eat it...but they did the the lollipops..Oh now my sister ordered catfish and that was pretty tasty...I don't think I will want to go back to that restaurant unless someone was picking up the tab, but if I have to pay out of my own pocket, aint nothing up..
