Charlie was a sinner. Ratings and Reviews
Always delightful and delicious. Celebrating an anniversary as our special occasion and we have to pick from several "go to" menu items. They are consistently very good with their food preparation and presentation. We tried a different "special" mixed drink and while it was good for us to experiment it was not for our taste; that's not a knock on how it was prepared. We like to eat earlier in the evening, before 6pm, because it can get loud in the intimate dining area. We'll be back.
Pretty much everything about this restaurant is cool.
The restaurant has an inviting vibe and is intentionally dim.
The drinks menu is very good.
The dishes are all vegan, but very tasty. Both of us eat meat most meals, but were impressed and came away very impressed.
However, the items added up very quickly and we ended up paying a lot for the meal.
Overall, excellent experience. Food was amazing, service was spot on, all at extremely good price. I am not veg although my date was, both of us were very happy with the food and stuffed when we left (even skipped desert). Food comes out tapas style with portions on the smaller size which I think is perfect for ordering a bunch of dishes and sharing everything. Next time I'm in philly, I'll be stopping here again for sure.
My husband and I travelled from north Jersey to go here for my birthday dinner and we were absolutely delighted by the ambiance, service and amazing food. Our waiter was awesome. The drink and food menu was unique and full of so many delicious options. Wonderful experience. Highly recommended for vegans and non-vegans alike.
Me and my wife went to charlie was a sinner for dinner on a a quick weekend getaway to Philly; we were extremely impressed by the quality and inventiveness of the menu. I was even more impressed with the cocktail service; again it was inventive, unique, and delicious. Prices were reasonable; dinner for two plus cocktails and tip, I was out of there for under $150. I have recommended this place to friends already and look forward to returning.
had a lovely girlfriend date here.
small / dark atmosphere -I could not tell you what the food actually looked like. tasted wonderful though.
order many plates. like 3 to a person or more. note this place is expensive.
our server was mad helpful - talked to us like kindergarters (but in positive helpful way, we needed her).
We drove all the way from Scranton for a date night. We intended on going to Vedge but the reservation available was 9:30 and we were getting hangry. We decided to try Charlie was a sinner and it was amaze-balls. The food was the best vegan food I've ever had (this includes New York and Boston) and also the most creative old fashion style drinks. The smoked a piece of hickory in my glass before making the drink...wow, delicious. Highly recommended.
This was the first visit to this restaurant and I took a chance when I made the reservation because this was for my daughter's birthday and her and my wife are very picky. To my relief we found a class vegan restaurant with delicious food and great service.
I was excited to go to this restaurant as the ambiance and menu looked wonderful. The ambiance and the menu, and cocktail list, is wonderful but the food was among the worst food I've had in a long time.
The waiter was very pretentious but service was okay.
The food was really terrible.
Sesame Crusted carrots are basically raw with a dollop of babaganoush - not even grilled or seasoned well.
The grilled salad with fennel croutons was mediocre and the croutons were too hard to eat.
My husband ordered the silken tofu ramen and it was horrible. He didn't eat it.
The gnocchi was good. Not great.
Did not deliver.
I love the atmosphere at this restaurant. The seating was a tad bit tight but I was still able to hear my significant other. As someone who has never been to a vegan restaurant before I was amazed at how filling ever course was and will happily be returning!
