"I enjoyed dinner at the Pickled Heron on Sunday night. We were actually the only table being served that evening- which was shocking considering how delicious the meal was!! Our favorite dish was the duck breast served with a special cashew spinach. Also, their appetizer special, a homemade mushroom ravioli, was super light and completely delicious- loved it. We also enjoyed the cod as a second entree. There were lots of flavors within the dishes- all of the sides were unique- nothing mundane or to be expected. Really a lovely experience. The sardines were the only thing we didn't love, as they were a bit bony and not enjoyed as a result. We splurged on the chocolate cake with peanut butter ice cream- so yummy! Our waiter was very attentive and we had a very relaxing and enjoyable dining experience."

"My wife and I had wanted to try the Pickled Heron for a long time, as any place recommeded by Greg Moore is bound to be good. We were happy to get to go to one of the special Moore Brothers' wine dinners here, and it was great. The food was very tasty and shined even more when paired with great wines by Greg Moore. The restaurant is cozy, and all of the staff were friendly and very good. We are looking forward to going back and trying the regular menu."

"I do not believe in reviewing restaurants. I believe in enjoying a restaurant for all it has to say and then letting everyone know how wonderful the experience was. The Pickled Heron was from start to finish a culinary delight. One can tell that care and attention to the food itself is of the most importance here. The two chefs are clearly committed to keeping the food simple and flavorful. What could be better than that?"

"We first dined here shortly after the opening, and looked forward to watching it grow. Unfortunately, it's been stuck in neutral. An uninspiring meat heavy menu, bland seasoning, and not one veggie option. While every other neighborhood eatery was packed on this beautiful Sunday evening, TPH was empty. There's a reason for that."

"I have dined here twice and the second for my birthday; the food, service and ambiance were perfect for my 49th birthday celebration. The chef hand-delivered my meal and it was spectacular. I had the Bass, which had a slightly crunchy skin and was cooked to perfection, while my son had the duck (first time) he's a 19yr old foodie and was very impressed; all in all - we had a very good experience from our entrée to desserts (we ordered 4 to try them all ) !! I would recommend; also note the price is extremely reasonable."

"We enjoyed our mutual birthday dinner. The mussels were like butter. My husband had the pork tenderloin, my son had the duck, and I had the crab cake, all were delicious. We couldn't decide on dessert so ordered 3 and shared them all, carrot cake, Creme Brûlée, and a chocolate dish (I forget what it was called) loved all 3, but if I could only have one, I would get the Creme brûlée. We will be back, it was a wonderful dinner."

"My wife and I celebrated Valentines Day here after making a reservation. We were turned off as soon as we interacted with the hostess. She was disinterested at best, and did nothing to provide any service (showing us the coat rack). We were also given the seat next to the door, feeling the cold weather when it opened. Our server (Mike) salvaged the night a little, but not nearly enough for me to go back."

"Although the restaurant is four years old, we somehow missed it when looking for intimate, BYO spots in Philadelphia. It was bustling--on the Saturday night before Valentine's Day the next day--so it was packed. But that did not prevent us from receiving good service. As we noted in some reviews, the first course mussels and the lobster cavatelli were both very good. As were our entrees. No issues with the quality or quantity. We'd certainly return. Worth a visit."

"The food was very tasty but if you are very hungry/greedy this is not what you are looking for. The fish is always good (I have this on good authority). The meat is well cooked and seasoned with care. It's Bring Your Own Booze so check the website and select wine in advance without paying restaurant prices"

"We made a reservation for dinner here before a flight for 5 pm and had the whole restaurant to ourselves. The food was fantastic and it was a lovely ambiance. It is somewhere I would 100% go to again and 100% recommend to friends!!"

"We have lived in the area for about two years and have often heard about the Pickled Heron but never made our way in. We were watching Beat Bobby Flay and saw the chef on the show and decided it was time to go!
We went on Friday night and loved it! We are hoping to go back for valentines day!"
