We stood at the front door for 10 minutes before anyone said hello and they were not even busy. It was as if they couldn't see us. When they finally sat us we were not offered drinks and the bus girl just poured tap water without asking us what we wanted. It took forever to have our order taken and the waiter was so rude to us. He acted as if we were his old friends... way too familiar and he thought his behavior was acceptable. Our appetizers took 30 minutes to arrive and dinners another 30 minutes. We were offered dessert menus and we asked if that would take 30 minutes as well and the waiter said "You obviously don't have time for dessert..." and took our menus away and immediately threw our check down. Food was fair and nothing stood out except some items were clearly not made on the premises but frozen facsimile of what was presented on the menu. How this place is still in business is beyond me.

My husband & I both ordered the duck for dinner. He ordered rare & medium rare for myself. When the food came out it looked delicious but the duck was chewy and way over cooked. When the waitress came by we told her we weren't happy with our meals and all that was offered was free dessert which wasn't too great either. We aren't the type to ever complain but this meal was very disappointing, especially for what you are paying.

A quaint little BYOB with delicious food. The service was very good, and the staff was very accommodating of my husband, who is a vegetarian -- the chef whipped him up something off-menu. I had the salmon & shrimp risotto and it was exquisite. Can't wait to go again.

This tiny BYO is a must on any foodie's list. The food is excellent. The chef knows things most do not about preparation and sauces. Each new experience has me and my boyfriend saying mmmmmm, and that's all you really need. The small space can be a little distracting if you have loud diners. But the service is on. You want for nothing (but more of that South Philly bread they serve). But be careful it could spoil your meal at this great BYO.

My husband and I love love love this restaurant. The food is fresh, delicious and mouth-watering. The chef and owner are very friendly and always accommodating. This is our go-to restaurant when we go out to dinner with friends. We go out to dinner every week and try other restaurants but keep coming back to our favorite, Salt &Pepper. Bring a bottle or two and enjoy a great, romantic dinner as a couple or with friends.

Salt and Pepper is an amazing restaurant. Whether it's dinner or Sunday brunch, the food is delicious and the service is friendly, low-key, but upscale. Each time I return, it gets better and better! This is my favorite spot in Philadelphia.

I have been to Salt and Pepper a few times and always have a great time. It's small but the food is just always right and the service is high end but not stuffy at all. I enjoy BYOB's and have been to several including Django's and La Boheme and keep coming back to Salt and Pepper. Maybe it's because it only has 20 seats or so, but all the details, like the crispy jullined vegetables of the desert cheese plate are all made and presented perfectly by the one man kitchen. The waiter we had was helpful, we talked wines for a while and he suggested some that I have since tried and loved. Just a pleasant experience, and with the BYOB not expensive.
