Extremely disappointing. My whole family was coming to visit, so I researched BYOBs online for hours, trying to find one that would represent the Philadelphia BYOB scene the best.What a mistake! We had the displeasure of meeting the owner, who was unbearably rude. We politely inquired about getting two separate bills for our party of 6 and were told " I bring the bill, you figure it out" by the owner. So we charged everything on one credit card, and when the server came back with the credit card receipt, 25 extra dollars had been charged. No explanation was given so I had to request one from the owner. He irritably reported that his staff had not charged the right amount on two of the dishes, and when I suggested that it would have been nice to have an explanation right away, he said "it is not my fault my staff is lousy".
I expressed my surprise at his attitude, and he started yelling at me, so aggressively that both my husband and father had to enjoin him to remain polite. This did not really cause a commotion in the dining room because there was only one other occupied table, odd for a Friday night but understandable in the end.
The food was fine and although "lousy" according to the owner, the staff was very pleasant and polite. However, in the end, it was a very bad experience and I felt obliged to apologize to my family for putting them through it. There are myriads of better BYOB in Phila, avoid this one!
Pros: staff was nice except owner
Cons: service, ambiance
