Sbraga - Philadelphia Ratings and Reviews

This was absolutely delicious and ranks among my most favorite meals. They have a tasting menu and pre fix pricing for a 4 course meal. Everything was so tasty and I love that the portion sizes were just Right... I don't like huge portions. I spent a smidge extra to get the spaghetti with King Crab, and boy was it worth it. Great cocktails to start, great wine menu, and easy, friendly yet sophisticated service. I must get back to Philadelphia to go again soon!!

Once again, Sbraga proved exceptional. The menu constantly evolves and our party of three tried the saffron risotto, the lamb loin, and the spicy fried chicken -- all new for us (and the new choices aren't limited to these). The wine list is intelligently selected and reflects a broad range of grapes and regions. The service staff is as good as it gets -- professional in every way and very skilled at maintaining a relaxed atmosphere.

Top-notch place -- excellent ambience, service, menu.
Sbraga offers a four-course prix fixe menu with a few neat extras -- a Gruyere popover and then foie gras soup -- and a wide variety of ingredients and tastes. The appetizers included hamachi crudo and capicola mousse on toast, both of which got the meal off to a great start and left us wondering about what great dishes would follow. Following was an outstanding, varied pasta course and then wonderfully fried chicken and sautéed octopus. Fun desserts punctuated the meal with an exclamation point. A peanut butter mousse with chocolate brownie bits and marshmallow helped the meal finish strong. Sbraga is touted as one of the best restaurants in the city -- tonight was further evidence as to why that is.

this was my second visit to Sbraga, the chef offers unique pairings and very interesting dishes. The portions are just right and with four courses, very much worth the $55. The ambience is lovely as well, and their waitstaff is outstandin.

We looked forward to this meal for weeks and were truly disappointed. The staff (hostess to bartender to waiter) were extremely snobby and the food mediocre. We chose the chefs tasting menu. Instead of receiving something unique we were served dishes from the regular menu. The dishes had flavor but were all very heavy and extremely filling. And of all the six courses we never enjoyed a vegetable. With so many amazing restaurants in Philadelphia right now we will not be planning to revisit Sbraga.

Food was delicious and fresh; drinks were pricey but excellent. Tables for 2 were very close together - at times felt like we were on a double date with the loud couple next to us. Overall, would go back again but only for a special occasion.

It was much better the first time around. The meals came out too slowly for my liking. We did go for the safe options this time and the main protein course didn't meet my expectations. Overall it was a good meal but perhaps after a long absence it'll taste fonder.

The food was superb and an absolutely great value. The server and staff were very knowledgeable and went out of their way to make us feel special. The only negative thing I can say is that the red wine was over priced by more than the 300% markup I expect to see. I will probably order by the glass next time to avoid this.

Went for our anniversary, the meal was fantastic. Just don't forget to mention it to your server like we did, as we saw another couple get complimentary prosecco for their anniversary as we were on our last course.
The plates are small, so despite the four courses (plus foie gras soup to start), we weren't overly stuffed by the end. Every course was fantastic, and very easy to share.

I had to go Sbraga since heard Kevin Sbraga opened it. It did not disappoint. From moment we walked in until the moment we left, we were treated with gracious hospitality, patient waiters and an amazing meal. From the pop overs to the Foie Gras amuse Bouche, we knew the meal would be special. My fiance and I then shared each of our dishes (Hamachi crudo, escargot, fettuccine with rabbit, rigatoni and pork shoulder, grilled octopus, lamb, olive oil cake and chocolate cake with peanut butter mousse) and loved them all! Overall, a wonderful experience! My only regret is that I didn't trust my gut that Chef Sbraga was at the bar when we walked in or I would have told him how happy I was to be there.

This is my new favorite spot in Philly, it's beyond difficult to find restaurants that are willing to go above and beyond for their guests. I finally found it here. All of the staff, from the bussers/managers/servers/cooks were professional, yet personable. The food is impeccable, I think this is some of the best food I have eaten in my life... (and that is saying a lot). I highly recommend the Escargot, and Gnocchi, absolutely incredible (the blueberry really makes that dish). I will definitely become a regular guest here at S'braga; where you feel nothing short of royalty. Thanks to all the staff for making my boyfriend and I feel so special. xo

Everyone was very attentive, knowledgeable & personable. The food was exceptional. Wine suggestion was on point. Gnocchi was like little pillows that burst in your mouth. Foie gras soup was phenomenal. The balance of textures and flavors were a delight!

- The steaks we ordered were improperly cooked and the chewey texture was surprising given that it was a filet. At a restaurant of this caliber, what was brought to the table was unacceptable.
- plates should have been better inspected before being put on the table. There is no excuse for a plate brought to the table to have the last customers food remnants on it.
- Dishes/appetizers needed to be executed with more care and inspected before being delivered. The Gruyere popovers were burnt and the soups we ordered were supposed to contain rabbit, not small jagged rabbit bones.

Sbraga, located at 440 South Broad Street, has a $55 four-course tasting menu which will delight anyone searching for a culinary adventure. My husband and I visited on a Monday in the early evening. Service was professional and knowledgeable. A standout from the imaginative menu was the king crab pasta with Calabrian chili butter sauce. You may order wines by the glass to complement each of the four courses.

I really enjoyed our dinner at Sbraga last week. The decor and feel of the place was very comfortable, not too fancy but very nice. The three course menu offered quite a bit of food for a great price. The foie gras soup was amazingly smooth and went well with the popovers. All of the pasta dishes (spaghetti, risotto, and rigatoni) were very good, and the entrees also went over well. The service was smooth, and the place was busy for a Monday night. Overall an excellent meal for any occasion.

We've run out of superlatives for this place. It NEVER disappoints on any front, except maybe the wine list (could be larger) -- but that's really stretching for something to criticize. The menu constantly introduces new and memorable dishes so Sbraga is a restaurant that we never tire of. The portion sizes are perfect, the creativity remarkable, the execution flawless. The service staff is the most professional and at the same time as friendly and relaxed as contemporary dining demands. Bravo! It's become our favorite upscale restaurant and in our opinion, Philly's most consistently impressive.

The Prix fixe menu selections were varied and abundant and each course was delicious. I especially loved my pre dinner cocktail, "French New Wave."
We enjoyed our friends' company and were able to converse and dine without feeling rushed and staff was attentive throughout the meal. We highly recommend Sbraga!
