Great meal and all around experience. Definitely order a drink, we had the Aviator and the Quiet, Quiet and were very happy with our drinks. We sat close to the bar and watched the bartender craft each cocktail with precision and care. The oysters were beautifully served and fresh! My duck confit was one of the best I've had, succulent inside and crispy outside. This restaurant has grown in its time here and one of the best on East Passyunk (and all around Philly) More

This a great restaurant, one that we have visited 5 times since it opened. The food is amazing, but the service is spotty. Our server lacked any personality and treated the entire experience with indifference. This was our third time with this server, so it seems fair to say that these were not isolated incidents. More

Quetzally was founded by a father and son who turned out colorful, fresh and light dishes. Get the barbacoa sopes — puffy hand-formed corn cakes topped with a mountain of slow-cooked shredded lamb and crisp lettuce. The excellent dishes have all these little stand-out details that make the restaurant instantly memorable: fresh guacamole, just you order make it the moment food.More

Discover South Philly

South Philadelphia is a bustling, diverse neighborhood that reflects the best of what the city has to offer, and its food is no exception. Many of the city’s most iconic foods can trace their roots here. Of course, no visit to Philly is complete without a classic cheesesteak, invented in this part of town by Pat Olivieri in 1930. In fact, Italian-Americans living in South Philadelphia have been a driving force behind the city’s food culture, popularizing favorites like pizza and water ice. You can visit the Italian Market area for a sampling of some of the city’s specialty foods from quality meats and produce to baked goods and gelato. If Vietnamese food is what you’re after, this neighborhood is also home to plenty of authentic dishes like pho and banh mi.
