Panorama Ratings and Reviews
We had a person in a wheelchair and they couldn't have been more accommodating. The hostess met us at the door where they already had a wheelchair ramp ready for us. The new renovation is beautiful and the menu is amazing. We loved the beet salad and our companions loved the Cesar salad. We were also very please with the duck and the veal dishes. A vast array of wines offered...you must get a flight! This place is top notch and I would highly recommend before a show at the Arden as there is also a dining discount.
This was without a doubt one of the best restauarants that we have ever eaten at. The food was so good - a perfect balance of flavors, ingredients , portion size was perfect, quality was excellent and although we didn't meet the chefs we would have loved to tell him ourselves what a fabulous meal it was. The limoncello liquor the best we have had and the tiramisu with banana mascarpone and espresso carmel sauce was unbelievable. The meal was worth every penny. I would recommend this restauarant to anyone. Great authentic but delicate Italian food.
Panorama was not as good as anticipated having read Craig LaBan's review. It certainly does have an extensive wine list and wine flight options. The lunch and dinner menus are the same. The wild boar pappardelle pasta was good, but not outstanding. It could have used more seasoning and perhaps more cooking time for the flavors to blend. The wild mushroom ravioli was the better dish with its unique flavor. The focaccia was just plain ordinary and over salted. The Caesar salads were good, but not special in any way - just Romaine and croutons. Seating is not ideal in the long section by the entrance with a lot of traffic coming through. Overall, we may return to try some of the wines, but prefer many other Philly restaurants.
Starters and main meal were both excellent; desserts were very lacking. The 'take' on both the Zabaglione and Tiramisu was disappointing - way too heavy to end the Mother's Day lunch.
All I could give is Good and won't rush back ... I had eaten there recently and the food and dessert in particular was excellent so this was not what I was expecting. Ah well.
Perfect from start to finish. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel like family. Every step of the dinner has been thoughtfully planned. The appetizers are truly unique. The best ingredients are crafted into delicious and visually attractive plates. The pastas are also interesting and outstanding. The half-portion option means that a taste of something special can be added to the meal or made into the main course. The Secondi are truly special. The best of land and sea, with unique vegetarian dishes as well. The desserts should not be missed. My favorite is the pear poached in wine. Panorama is the home of the best wine selection in Philadelphia, and almost all are available by the glass, thanks to the world's largest wine machine. In addition, they produce many of their own liqueurs. The Lemoncello could be the best in the world. Come be a part of the family!
We returned to Panorama after having recently had a wonderful experience there. This time, we brought several friends to share our past dining pleasure and the very pleasant ambience. Sadly, the return experience did not live up to our expectations. The restaurant was very busy, perhaps because it was a college graduation weekend in the city. Our server was engaging and knowledgeable but didn't follow through to make sure that all orders were delivered correctly (there were missing items). The food was good, although several main courses arrived only lukewarm and the pasta was undercooked. The wine list is spectacular and all guests were very pleased with their selections, thanks, in part, to an excellent sommelier. Desserts were quite good. We really enjoy Panorama and hope to return there at a less busy time.
Service was lackluster, however the wine list available by the glass alone would have made the restaurant worth the trip. Vegetarian option special made by the chef was great - others love their entree as well.
You have me at burrata, but not this time. It's home made, but not great.
Ordered (3) desserts and although a chocoholic the limoncello cheesecake is light and airy - and absolutely fantastic!
Went based on food critic review. Location was close to a prior event. Food was very good. Chef
attempts to be creative with an Italian theme. Alex our server was exceptional, knowledgable about wine and the entire menu. Saturday night was busy but the staff could handle it
The food and service were excellent! If you want to try some different wines, I highly recommend one of the flights. I rated the ambiance as "Good" because they should really remove the wall between the bar and the restaurant. The wine bar is the focal point and should be more prominent.
The food was excellent, amazing wine list (with a huge number available by the glass), nicely redecorated from last year when it was rather old-fashioned looking. The only problem was that we were a group of 7 at a long table, and the noise level was so high on a crowded Saturday night (partly because of the brick walls) that we could only converse with those immediately next to us.
We enjoyed Panorama for a special anniversary. The food selections reminded us of our trip to Tuscany: wild boar pasta sauce (PAPPARDELLE CINGHIALE), lamb with fava beans. My husband especially enjoyed the creamy SPAGHETTI CACIO e PEPE , black pepper pasta for the primi.
We also had wine flights: we enjoyed all the selections although the first selections were not on a par with the last two, of course. I had the Tuscany flight, which included a favorite wine: Brunello. I really, really enjoyed the Toscana Rosso “Dròmos~Cab/Merlot/Cab Franc/Sangiovese/Alicante Maremma, Toscana” Poggio Verrano ’07 . It looks like some of the wine flight listings online have moved the selections around a bit from the menu we were given, which only makes a difference if you are looking retrospectively for a review ;-)
The service was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. I definitely recommend Panorama for a good wine and antipasti at the bar, or a more extensive dinner. Traditional Italian without the pretension. Buon appetito!
This was our second visit to Panorma, and we enjoyed it just as much as we did the first time, except that at noon there were very few tables occupied. The service is very gracious and attentive, and the food was delicious. I loved the seafood crespelle and the wicked dessert.
Amazing wine list and very unique and variable options for wine tasting!!
and the food....outstanding, delicious and beautifully presented. There's a private wine cellar that I am going to book for private family gathering for a reunion in the future-
love it here, you will not be disappointed here!! Veal Braciole was so tender I did not use my knife!
Food was great, service very attentive. So, I wonder just why I don't want to go back? I think it's because we were seated adjacent to the bar area, a dark space. I perhaps may have felt differently if we had been seated in the lighter dining room that we initially walked through.
Disappointing. Service was terrible. The wines on tap is an interesting concept but the execution was poor. With a large list of wine flight options available, preparing flights of five 1.5 oz glasses is time consuming. Bartenders could not keep up. After ninety minutes and 1 drink order and appetizers at our table, we got frustrated waiting for second flights of wine. Our server was inattentive and did not seem concerned with our wait. We spoke to the manger but did not even receive an apology.
In town for a concert & Birthday celebration, staying at the Penns View Hotel and decided to try Panorama. So glad we did! The food overall was quite delicious. I tried the pasta Bolognese - which was a twist on a classic - yet very good. My fiancé had the veal and enjoyed it as well. The service was outstanding. And I could absolutely try every wine flight on the menu!
The food preparation and wine tastings were very good. I was, however, a bit disappointed at the service level. Food was delivered without prior attention to place settings. We had to remind the server that we had ordered (and by this time, paid for) deserts. At this price point, that is not acceptable.
