Sbraga - Philadelphia Ratings and Reviews

First of all Kevin Sbraga was not in the kitchen last night
The loud rap music sound track playing until we asked that they turn it down is not conducive to fine dining
The foie gras soup had so much ginger in it my mouth was burning
The smoked Gorgonzola cheese in the salad was interesting but to me it was a flavor that did not work
The mussels in the risotto were marinated in a tomato vinaigrette To me when I ate them, it was like drinking vinegar out of a bottle. The calamari were fine
The lamb loin was fine. Although I don't think the plantains were a good accompaniment
The cheese plate and the chocolate mousse with pumpkin ice cream were very good
I would have enjoyed a description of each dish as it was served rather than having to ask when the next course was served "what were those flavors I was tasting in the last course?"

Great food, decent portions, excellent price, creative cocktails.
Friendly and helpful service, but a little rushed.
Ambiance was okay, location made broad street look busy, which gave the place energy, but the interior was overall pretty generic. Liked the open kitchen.

Sbraga is one of our favorite places in a neighborhood of great restaurants. We took our cousin to Sbraga for her 50th birthday. She couldn’t have been more pleased. The menu is always tweaked, even if you go more than once a month, there’s something new to try. The toughest part of the night is always deciding which option to select from #2. They are all too good. Special thanks to Carmen and Alexis at the bar.

What a fantastic experience! This is truly up there with some of the very best meals I've had in my life. My wife and I visited this restaurant for the second time (it had been two years since the first) with very high expectations and they were exceeded. The flavors are superb, perfectly balanced, and very creative. Service was excellent and the courses were perfectly paced. Bravo, Sbraga!

Food was excellent. Server was not necessarily welcoming or attentive. I had to ask to have table cleared of crumbs and dirty dishes sat in table longer than expected in most dining establishments.

This was our second visit and it was just as amazing as the first time. The cocktails are fantastic and inventive and made with care, the wine and liquor selection is expansive and pairs well with the food. The price is great for what you get, and for the experience. We love sitting in front of the kitchen and watching the chefs, the attention to detail is impressive and mesmerizing. The food is better than you could hope. I got all seafood this time and my yellowtail, mussels, and octopus were all fantastic, and this is in November! The flavor combinations were surprising and exciting! And for my husband who is more a meat and potatoes kind of guy, they also have really comforting (but elevated) gnocchi, beef tenderloin, oxtail, and mashed potatoes. I got that surprising and different experience and he left really satisfied. We didn't get to see Kevin cook this time, but he still has a killer menu and great people working for him. Can't wait to come back!!

One of the best overall spots in Philly. I've yet to have a dish that I didn't love. And at $55 a person for a four course meal + two starters, it's a pretty awesome value. Highly recommended for date night, dinner with friends / family or a business dinner. It's a very cozy yet stylish setting and the staff is very attentive, helpful and knowledgeable. Love it here.

Really good food -- the tasting menu was incredible (and well priced). The service was really phenomenal. When given various dietary options, our server was incredibly helpful. Overall, a really exceptional dining experience.

Had the 5th Annuversary tasting menu with wine pairing and it was amazing. Incredible combination of flavors and the wines were perfect with the food. The server was outstanding as well. What a treat. Can't wait to go back.

Always enjoy this place since Chef Spraga updates the menu regularly. This time he added decidedly African/Morroccan flavors to some classic dishes. Wait staff was wonderful. Tables along banquette are very close together, but we struck up a nice conversation over the food with the couple next to us, which added to our enjoyment of the evening.

Pleasing up to date atmosphere, busy pre-theatre, satisfactory service, good wine list. Prix fixe menu has restricted range for first and second courses, especially lack of alternative to pasta. Main course tasty, well prepared, but meager portion, especially if you don't fill up on earlier courses. Upscale dining rather over-priced . Attentive to time constraints of diners.

Terrific pre-orchestra dinner on a busy Saturday evening. Wonderful food and quick service that is never rushed. The foie gras soup and popover to start is about as good as it can get. The 5th. anniversary pre-fixe special was a great value. Great way to start an evening in Center City.

I had high expectations because of the excellent reviews but I feel like it was an overall mediocre experience. Although it's nice to get my food in a timely manner, the extra soup and the first 2 courses were served one after another and I finished those courses within less than 20 minutes of sitting down and ordering. There wasn't anything wrong with those courses but it also wasn't anything outstanding or memorable. The main course was very small, even if compared to fine dining standards. The dessert was boring and was an anti-climatic way to finish everything off. I was visiting from out of town and I feel like I wasted my opportunity to have a great meal by coming here. That being said, the 4 course prix fixe was only $55, so I guess it could have been worse.

Food was good, consistent from when they first opened. Service has decreased tremendously from first opening. Long wait between courses and dirty plates not cleaned between courses until next course came. Never received coffee even though order before desert came. Disappointing.

meal started with good amuse bouches. all of the other dishes that I tried had interesting flavors, but overall execution was not great. as an example, the fried chicken had a nice spicy kick but had too much breading and was fried for too long, leaving big chunks of rock-hard breading. the pasta dish tasted good as well, but the noodles were just a bit overcooked in my opinion.

Our dinner was fine except for one major mistake on the part of Sbraga. One person in our group explicitly told the server that he was allergic to walnuts. The server said that there were no walnuts in the dishes he ordered though there are pecans on the cheese plate. Contrary to what he was told, they were walnuts, not pecans, which he learned only after eating one. While the restaurant was apologetic, they provided no compensation and, more to the point, a good restaurant (much less one engaged in fine dining) does not make that kind of serious error.

It was OK, but not fun. Everything felt like a "cookie cutter" experience. The food was pretty good, the service was way too attentive. The restaurant was about 1/4 full which explains the service being so attentive. It just didn't have a great vibe. The food was fine. I really liked the popover and the fois gras soup. But other things didn't jump off the plate. The octopus, for example, was amazingly tender but the sauce was so spicy that it overpowered the octopus. It was way too expensive for the quality of our experience.
