Felt like we were in the Village. Great opportunity for a great meal, but the service was exceedingly poor (the young woman was simply a rookie, I think, and the acoustics made it so that a party of seven women drowned out the person sitting next to you from a few tables away. Some sound dampening and experienced wait staff would have brought everything up one or two stars. Great food, though!
Great service, outstanding food (especially for the price) and quiet/relaxing and eclectic ambiance.
Been here many times. Always delicious. We've take many friends here and they all agree!
Expensive for the amount of food we got, we left hungry.
The actual food was good. The sauces left something to be desired. It was only eh.
Terrific restaurant. Very good fish. Great service. Would recommend w/o reservation!
Fabulous meal and excellent sangria.
I loved the repurposed furniture and silverware definitely eclectic and it was great. we had small plates that were brought out one at a time with perfect. timing. the end of the rainbow cocktail was amazing!!!! service was excellent. my ONLY complaint is that there is only one bathroom as in one toilet for the entire restaurant. Its a fairly small place but a second bathroom is needed.
A great place we will definitely go. back and have already recommended it to others
Came for a birthday dinner. The food is insanely good. We tried everything on the small plates menu. The scallops and salmon were perfect. You can't go wrong here if you want good seafood.
I loved the ambiance. The Waiter was excellent and the food was amazing. I would go back and recommend to everyone!
Everything was great except the service was very slow. Seemed there were too few servers on handle the volume. Waited a decent time in between ordering items. Also, we were not told what the kitchen was out of until we had sat for a while and the server came to take our orders. It made me have to change my order on the fly which was upsetting as I had my mind made up on a specific item (burger) and could not get it.
Great food with friendly service.
Went for happy hour for my girlfriend’s birthday. The service was great. What really sold us on this place was the ambiance. The food was delicious, especially the oysters. Will definitely make trips back in the near future.
All most delicious - interesting and well prepared - nice to have variety and also smaller portions!
Excellent as usial
Had a wonderful dinner gathering with 7 people in a relaxed environment where we could easily have conversations. We shared a variety of small plates entrees and desserts. Everything from brussels sprouts, roasted octopus, cauliflower, two kinds of fries, whole fresh fish, miso cod, fish stew, Oreo and lime desserts. Can’t even remember everything we ate and drank. We all enjoyed our visit and the delicious meal together.
We had a great time. Love the ambiance of this place. The food is outstanding!!! The server was a little slow and scattered, but he was nice. We will definitely be back!
Great Happy Hour! Good food!
Tall people, watch out for low-hanging chandeliers!
Great appetizers and dishes - delicious miso cod. Service was exceptional.
Tuna was amazing with food gross. The grilled octopus was equally tender and flavorful
Best happy hour in Philadelphia
Fun restaurant, good food, great happy hour menu. We made a meal of happy hour specials that was fun snd satisfying.
Wish the service were faster
Wonderful relaxing delicious inviting delightful and fun
Good and atmosphere was amazing. I'm definitely coming back!!!
Brunch was fantastic and the ambiance is super charming. Service was friendly and the food came out quickly. They have all you can eat pancakes for $11, and they are good fluffy pancakes. I had the crab cake eggs benedict and it was perfection.
Food was very good. Serivce was lacking - long time between each dish (20 mins) which made it awkward to dine.
I would but I would also let them know they have to be specific as to when they want certain foods served together. For example, we received what we considered our side dishes to our entrees way before we were served our entrees. Therefore, we ate the sides before our entrees. We don't know if that is just the way you do things or if there was a problem with our order, etc. Most people do like their sides with their main meal. The food was very good but it was noisy so much so that sometimes we could not hear our waiter....maybe that was the issue with the food service.
Pros: Great artisitcal ambience, food menu, and drinking menu. The food was delisious and it was portioned well (Crab Cake, Garlic Shrimp, Filet Mignon of Tuna, and Hamburger).
Con's: Small menu selection.
Personal Con: Our waitress was a little fast and did not explain the menu. We were new to the restaurant and she wanted to take our full order (soup, appetizer, entree) without explaining to us whats the soup of the day (we had to ask) etc. She was mannerly, but a little contradicting, because she had a dry personality and her facial expression were unprofessional (eye rolling) etc.
May have been because it was a Sunday night
Average food, we ordered happy hour items that can only be served at happy hour. The mussels and oysters were extremely small even for a dollar. I’ve eaten much larger $1 Happy Hour oysters. The $1 shrimp on the other hand were a nice size well worth $1 the Prosecco was also worth $5. The service was strange somewhat unorganized. This experience would not encourage me to order from the main menu.
Food and service was great my only issue was waiting 45 minutes for a our table when we had a reservation
I had a very pleasant dining experience .
The food pretty good. Unfortunately the service was lacking.
Absolutely love Pinefish. Quintessential Philly, great ambiance, incredible food and so much fun. A local’s place and one that all seafood lovers should check out.
I had an amazing time at pinefish. It was my first time, along with the six other ladies I brought with me. Food was amazing! Can’t wait to return.
Staff worked with us to get us out in time for a show
The brussel sprouts and tuna tartare with fois gras were both amazing!
All of the seafood was fresh and delicious
Amazing happy hour
After we shared small plates as well which were also delicious
Such a pretty place
