Rose Tattoo Cafe in Philly

I haven't been to the Rose Tattoo in years, but I have brought many dates to this place, my husband included. The very last time we went the food was so-so, has anyone been recently and if so what is it like now?

    It is really funny you posted this... we were discussing this place last night at dinner. We said we rarely go to this area of the city... I am really curious to see what type of response you will get from the board...

      Unfortunately I can't comment on the food either. I will say it's a great place for drinks either before or after a lecture at the Free Library, which I did this summer. The bartenders are friendly and competant. The dim-ish lighting and medium dark interior can feel a bit romantic.

        We went about a month ago, and were pleasantly surprised. I had the chicken, and companion had the filet. Both were deliciously cooked and tasted great--the chicken really was superb (especially considering it's...chicken breast). Service was a bit spotty, though. Overall, I'd go back...
