Dinner Tomorrow at Porcini...Should I change my reservations?
I have made reservations for Porcini tomorrow night, it is my GF's 25th Bday and we will be going to Tria before and Helium Comedy afterwards on 20th and Sansom. I have been reading a lot of bad reviews lately about the service, favoritism, and overpricing. Has anyone been lately and if so what are your thoughts on the place, food, and experience. I wanted to do Caffe Casta Diva but the no-reservations policy was a deterrent. The show is at 10pm and I don't want to have to walk around looking for some place on a whim who doesn't take reservations. Thanks.
On a Tuesday night, I think you should be able to walk into Caffe Casta Diva easily...or Melograno (22nd/Spruce) for that matter.
Both restaurants are much better food-wise, as well as ambiance, in my opinion
I just heard that Melograno now takes reservations.
Also, Matyson is pretty close - 19th St., just off Chestnut - and their food is excellent.
If you're celebrating a birthday, you might as well go someplace known to be good!
Melograno and Matyson are both excellent choices, I don't think you will have any trouble sitting down at either on a Tuesday night, reservations or not.
You could also just stay at Tria..
