Le Bec Fin
Le Bec Fin, the quintessential Philadelphia dining destination, continues to wow diners after 43 years. Its classic elegance is unmatched as this historic landmark still offers some of the finest cuisine in the country. Diners may choose from a four or eight course prix-fixe menu at dinner (three and five courses at lunch). All menus offer options to meet the tastes of every palate. Each night, the cozy bar offers inspired cocktails by Barman Bradford Lawrence. It serves an a la carte menu that allows diners to reminisce about their last trip to one of France's amazing casual bistros. It is the best place in the city for an ice-cold, expertly crafted Martini or Manhattan and a delicious meal or shared plate with friends. Le Bar serves food until midnight, Thursday-Saturday. Le Bec Fin is also a perfect private event destination where party-goers can find an intimate experience in the Mezzanine dining area at nearly any budget.
I have gone to this restaurant 3 times. I have to say that I am now a grad student but went in my undergrad years. I went once with a group of friends (about 10) for lunch, with my parents for lunch, then on a date for dinner. I had the prix fixe for lunch on both occasions and dinner was paid by my date and later reimbursed. My first time for lunch, I left with an empty feeling because I was still hungry and went to the Wendy's down the street. The second time, I asked for more dessert which was absolutely delicious. The third time I ate before we went and took home a doggy bag of creme brule. I speak french so making the reservations was pleasant. The chef was always around and he was somewhat delightful but seemed to wonder why a 20 something Black girl who never lived in France and weighs 115lbs could speak french( I don't have an American accent, my parents are haitian) and have such a healthy appetite. The restaurant is an experience and should only be an experience of fine cuisine other than that I would go to Patou or Alma de Cuba because they are not so pricey, but as you can see I have been there several times because the food is divine.
We have dined here numerous times over the past ten years and have never been disappointed.
The food is always exquisite and the service is wonderful and friendly. For such a formal atmosphere, we always feel comfortable. Chef is often see in the dining room and he is always a gracious host.
For those who appreciate fine food served by an attentive staff, it is always worth the price!
My husband and I recently dined here. We spent a very pleasant evening at the restaurant. My husband spent a very bad night at home sick from the food. We phoned the restaurant to inform them and were very rudely told that it was our problem, not theirs. We will NEVER go back and would not recommend it to anyone.
Great place.....we lived in Southern France for 7 years and ate at every two Michelin and every 3 over that time. This is on par with a 2 star. I was thrilled!
Viva La France!
My only complaint was we could not bring some of our rare wine collection.
I also called 5 days before and got a reservation right away so i don't understand what some of these others are saying.
Merci Le Bec-Fin!
This was just like dining back in France. After being back in this country we longed for a restaurant that is as exquisite as Le Bec-Fin. Aside from the food being perfect and lovely ambience it was great to have such a friendly staff of waiters. Usually at this caliber they act as if they are doing you a favor.
Merci Beaucoup et a bientot!!!!!!
We were not dressed appropriately, having just come from 3 hours at the Philadelphia Flower Show....me in tennis shoes and my husband in jeans.....but Bernard and the wait staff in the bar(nice bartender!)... treated us like royalty. We will go back again and do the dining room experience, but the bar was everything and more, and a little more, than we expected! Thanks for a memorable evening....so much for room service appetizers.....!
We enjoy ourself very much. It was a very
special day for me. The food was so good.
Our waiter was so nice and helpfull. We had
lunch but would love to have sometime to.
We would recommend it all our friends.
