American | Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia

Overall ok but for the prices not a great experience. We quickly received drinks and ordered food but after that the service was very slow. It was so noisy we could barely hear each other. After a pretty long wait, a food runner dropped off 3 of 4 meals and no one came to check in ever. I had to walk up to someone to ask for extra plates and syrup for the pancakes. The 4th meal came out pretty late. Not awful but not great. More

Helm Rittenhouse! What a fantastic experience! We visited on a Monday night. The staff paid attention to detail and accommodated our needs. The drinks were outstanding and the food--unique and prepared with care. The space was lovely, airy, clean, and lined with windows. This eating experience could not have gone any better. Please look for Helm Rittenhouse on the second floor. It is difficult to notice it from the street level. Helm is a gem. Please go try it soon!! More

Discover Rittenhouse Square

Bordered by gleaming high-rises and featuring a well-manicured park, Rittenhouse Square sits in the midst of Philly cheesesteak territory, but you'll also find neighborhood restaurants offering custom shaved-beef creations alongside lighter vegetarian options. More formal Italian cuisine is also traditional in this section of town, and it's a nod to the immigrants who came over in the 18th and 19th centuries. Here, you’ll find everything from tagliatelle, gnocchetti and exotic raviolis to veal tenderloin and polenta. If you’re hungry for a snack and the weather’s cold, consider a warm soft pretzel from a street vendor. If it’s warm, opt for a classic Italian water ice or a gelato sampler.
