The Philly BYO scene is one of the best things about this city; Pif can't hold a candle to the other terrific BYO's we've been too. I understand that every restaurant can have an "off night", but we've been twice within the last year, and both times came away very disappointed. The food seems ambitious but was poorly executed (under seasoned, under cooked -- are they scared of their own shadows at Pif?) and the service was really, really slow (which was odd, since there's only a handful of tables in the place - you'd think the two servers could handle it). A co-worker reccomended the langostines, so I tried them both times I went, and both times I thought to myself, "Either these are old, or I just don't like langostines". But then I tried them at a new Philly restaurant (not a BYO) and they were delicious, so... My wife tried a lamb dish and found just about equal parts fat and meat (sure, lamb is fatty, but come on, learn to trim, people!)Bottom line is the food ain't worth the hefty price, the service is slow (although pleasant), and there is no atmosphere to speak of. With all the other great BYO's to go to in Philly, I say stay away from Pif!
Pros: I guess parking was easy to find...
Cons: taste of food, value, ambience, service, etc
