Quiet place, Conshohocken perhaps

Karen K Jul 1, 2008 08:04 AM

Looking for a quiet place with good food where 3 couples can catch up on the past couple of years of their lives. Two of us are not shellfish eaters.

    Depending on the day you go, Blackfish might be a good option or Savona in Gulph Mills.

      About 15 min from Conshi is Ambler where La Cava is a nice small quiet restaurant with yummy upscale mexican. BYO.

        The Spring Mill Cafe is a great small byob, you can sit outside as well weather permitting.

          That is a great suggestion. The Valley Green Inn is also a nice quiet place with a beautiful porch.

          I think Trattoria Totaro in Conshy fits your needs perfectly. Small, usually quiet BYO with wonderful Italian food. And if you go, make sure to get the homemade sticky break pudding for dessert. I think the owner's mother makes it. Mmmmmm.....

            Blackfish is not all that great. The food was good, but I've had much better, for much cheaper. If you're looking for a place in Conshohocken, the Fayette Street Grille is wonderful. They have a prix fixe menu, 3 courses for 30 bucks, or an a la carte menu. Its also BYOB.

              We like Fayette Street Grille, but it is definitely not quiet. We find it hard to hold a conversation when the restaurant is crowded.
