Stateside Ratings and Reviews
We love Stateside and we're definitely going back but our entrees were not well prepared. Scallops were rubbery and the short rib was too chewy. BUT let it be known this is STILL our favorite place to go in the hood and we will go there as long as they're there.
Food was great (as always). But it was really loud and it was one of those frigid nights. Every time the door opened, we were hit with a biting blast of air. They should get one of those things that restaurants have that keeps the cold air out during the winter (a second door or something).
I love the pork belly and it's reason enough to go.
The bartenders were great, but the food was subpar. The $5 Old Fashioneds during Happy Hour can't be beat. Between the two of us, my date and I ordered 8 of them. They are THAT good. The food, however, was an issue. We ordered $1 oysters, which were extremely fishy, and our buffalo scallops were overdressed and extremely small in portion size for the $8 we paid. I would suggest coming for a drink then going elsewhere to eat.
Always an incredible dining experience. The drinks were well crafted, the food was delicious and innovative and the service was amazing. My husband has an egg allergy and our server made sure to find all the dishes on the menu that he couldn't have. It was really above and beyond.
I don't remember anything from my meal at all except ordering, the first bite, and then waking up at home like I was peaking on an ecstasy high. Everything that I had was absolutely amazing that the entire meal felt like a dream. We had the meatballs, a cheese plate, the squid, and the tri-top Waygu beef. Everything was cooked perfectly to the point where each plate was simple enough to get a taste of all of the ingredients but also had this interesting complexity where you could taste all of them individually and complemented each other well.
I didn't realize that they had a happy hour with $1 oysters so I'll definitely be coming back for that sometime next week.
I really wanted to like this place. The small plates, while tasty and different, were really small snacks and very poor value to money. The choices were interesting, delicious and different, but nothing was a great winner. Left somewhat hungry after a fairly hefty bill.
We eat out all over the city and So. Jersey. Food was tasty and well prepared; but way over-valued by between 20-30%. At the high end, for example, an oyster will cost $1 from an up-scale market; so $17 for 6 is poor pricing (and poor compared to other restaurants). Same issue for other "small" plates, which are really small considering the expectation is to order up to 4 per person (ie. the fois gras and tortellini). In addition, there was little to no choice on the menu for selective eaters (ok, there were over-priced pretzels at $3). Disappointed in the experience.
We had a delicious Friday evening meal at Stateside last week. The staff was very understanding and accomodating of the need to change our reservation time due to air traffic delays! The small plate concept allowed us to try 7 different items and they were all interesting and flavorful. The ingredients were seasonal and fresh! I would be very happy to return here again!
We came to Stateside for dinner on Father's Day 2016. Our group consisted of four adults and one three year old. The service was friendly, and very accomodating of our toddler. For example, the cheese plate we ordered came beautifully presented with some accompaniments, such as various jams, breads, and some grapes. Our toddler loved the grapes and wanted more. They brought out a bowl of grapes just for him at no additional charge. Every dish we tried was excellent. The music they were playing when we first arrived was a bit jarring for a dinner crowd -- hard rock verging on heavy metal better suited to late night. But they must have changed it shortly thereafter because I didn't notice the music after that point. Overall, we had a great time.
I took a friend to Stateside for some cocktails and appetizers (the menu is all small plates) on a Saturday evening. The weather was warm so most people were outside dining but we chose to stay inside, and there was plenty of space. We ordered wine and cocktails and everything was delicious - if you're looking to order cocktails, their menu is big. The cheese plate was great and our server was very knowledgeable in the cheese selections and answered all of our questions patiently.
Completely enjoyed the Foie Gras, Agnolotti and Charcuterie small plates - best Foie Gras ever! Additionally, the cocktails were fabulous; made by and served by a bartender that likes to make cocktails and service the bar without a pretentious or "too busy to be bothered" attitude. Honestly, one of my best finds in the last 10 years. I will recommend Stateside to everyone looking for a new restaurant and/or bar in Philly. Absolutely OUTSTANDING. Get over there now!
Went here as it was recommended and I also noted it was voted one of the top 50 restaurants in Philadelphia by Philly.com. If you like small plates and sharing this is a good choice. Not a ton of vegetarian options. The dishes are very beautifully presented. Dessert may have been the best part. The chocolate tart!
Great service, great food and incredibly noisy. The Gershwin drink is one of the best in the city, hands down; the freshly squeezed ginger is the bomb. The cheese parings were exceptional and the wait staff super friendly and accommodating. All dishes cooked perfectly and enjoyed by all.
This was my third time visiting this restrurant and it seems to have changed quite a bit since my last visit, which was quite a while ago. THe food was only so-so this time and the menu didn't seem that exiting. Not sure i will make a point to visit again - especially given the other establishments very close by. I was there with a group of 5 and we did have a varity of dishes - none of which were in anyway memorable - especially for the price. I will say the bar still seems like a fund place to hang out especially on a nice night.
Really enjoyed ourselves at Stateside this week. The small plates are right up our alley as we are able to sample many different flavors. Amazing drinks and a great bourbon list. Really like that you can order 1oz or 2oz pours. Bartender and service was great. We will definitely be back.
Lots of small plates, great menu, all the dishes he had were very good. The waiter was on top of it and also was prepared for and kept track of one of our party's gluten allergy. I didn't love the very loud aggressive music, but would go back for the food.
I hae been meaning to go to Stateside for a couple of years based on its presense on Passyunk Ave. I was not disapointed. We had some great American Whisky and Burbon, paired with some of the best small plates in philla. What is great abou this place is the eclectic small plates. Delicious and even entertaining, as the food was presented beutifully. Highly recomend! Our server Ninna was awesome!
It was my first time at stateside ! The food and the ambiance were great! The only drawback was the noise ! It was impossible to have a conversation ...but I guess t his could be a reflect of the great weather outside ! The staff was friendly and super eficient !!! I'll go back again for sure!
