Booker's Restaurant and Bar
Great food. Great atmosphere. Would definitely eat here again.
Sooo....feeling very conflicted. Good food, but not worth what we paid. I enjoy a refined dining experience and am willing to pay for it. This was not the feeling that we left with. To see triple digits on a bill for two people who did not particularly rave about the food, ambiance nor drinks is quite disappointing. I do not see myself returning of my own volition, nor making the recommendation that others visit.
We had brunch here and it was amazing! Food and drinks were delicious, our server was excellent and we really enjoyed it!
Service was superb, her name was Jasmine. The music was light and bubbly. The ambiance was welcoming and warm. My ONLY issue is there was a table and chair placed in EVERY free area of the place. Very tight. Very. Wasn't bad because the vibes were so awesome!
It was nice and the band was wonderful
Waited almost an hour to receive food, which arrived lukewarm.
Wonderful and delicious choice for Sunday brunch! Great service, hip and enjoyable atmosphere, good coffee and $5 mimosas. Would 10/10 recommend for everyday dining and for special occasions. Try the Chicken and Waffles or the Eggs Benedict! Excellent!
One of the nicest places I have been to in the Southwest Philadelphia area. The waitresses are very nice and the food is to live for! I have been talking about the place since I went. It's a nice place to take someone special. Or even a girls/guys night out.
Fabulous wait staff food was delicious. Loved the ambiance.
Wonderful meal and outstanding service. A neighborhood surprise that I highly recommend. The Jazz group was a welcomed addition as well.
We were seated immediately. The food was just ok and a bit overpriced. I enjoyed the ambiance.
Food was disappointing. Visited back in August and the food was delicious. Today the food was not tasty at all. Food had to be returned 3 times. Manger was nice but the food totally sucked. Will not be returning.
Good food great drinks awesome atmosphere will always return thank you bookers
My friends and I like to call this day, when brunch turned into happy hour. The food was super good, the drinks were incredible and the service was impeccable. Honestly, I go back and forth with my love and disappointment with Booker’s, but this experience on this day was truly awesome! I had the chicken and waffles with a sunny side up egg that was perfect and the meal was absolutely delicious. Then I ordered The Booker Old Fashion which was a must try and if I can describe it in one word “OMG”. Our Server(s) were both amazing ( I did say we started at brunch and it went into happy hour). Great job Booker’s!
Ambiance portions were fulfilling. The host missed my note for booth seating, but when realized it, she came to apologize. I appreciated the fact that she noticed it, but we were already dining. I recommend Booker’s.
Delicious, comfort food for the 4 of us. Favorites included the sweet potato encrusted salmon and catfish. The Booker salad and Lobster Mac n cheese were great starters. We were there on a Tuesday, so quiet. Much livelier other nights.
Booker's is a cool soul-food leaning restaurant. They allowed us to swap the chicken for fish as the waffle protein. YUM! The cheddar grits and breakfast potatoes were table hits. We chose the basil pom-pom carafe as our libation and it did not disappoint. Our darling server Iyanna was the perfect mixture of charming and professional. Looking forward to visiting on Wednesday for live jazz.
My food came out way before my guest. I was almost done by the time it arrived. That was a first for Bookers. It had never happened before.
one of the best experience for dining and entertainment !
It was a enjoyable experience. There was one thing I noticed. The suggested tip amount on the bottom of the bill for 18% did not match the waitress hand held device (which was more). She did not know why. I never heard of a tip being taxed.
I enjoyed the food. My family & I took my Dad out for his bday, January, the drinks were spot on. We were seated b4 our reservation time. My Dad is one of the best cooks ever & if he say the food is good that is worth a million dollars. I immediately recommended this restaurant to a few of my friends & family. The place is fairly small but quaint. Our waiter was a little forgetful but so very nice & polite. I’m already planning to go back.
Food is always amazing. Lovely ambience. Great location!
This was my second time at Bookers. The first time was for brunch. In my opinion, the trendiness of brunch has lowered the bar for quality. However Booker’s was uniquely on trend and delicious. The white wine and garlic mussels are incredible!
Fast forward a few weeks I needed a place for a birthday dinner celebration for a group of 10 and we remembered Booker’s! We had an amazing birthday celebration. The food the was good was delicious ( the mussels are good at dinner time too! as well as the fried chicken, braised short ribs, and the hanger steak) and the service was outstanding. Can’t wait to return on our next visit Philadelphia.
My husband and I had a delicious meal at Bookers.
The alfresco dining was absolutely perfect for a warm Sunday brunch.
Thank you to the owner Saba.
The food is ALWAYS delicious and flavorful. The staff are always pleasant and professional.
An old friend and I reconnected after years and she’d never been to Booker’s, it
My favorite brunch place. Best chicken and waffles!
Great food and service. We will be back!
The atmosphere was amazing, the food creative and flavorful and the staff warm, inviting and engaging. LOVE IT!
Visited this restaurant for a birthday brunch and it was great! It has a nice ambiance, quality service and the food was delicious!
First time going for a birthday celebration, and the experience surpassed our expectations. From walking into the front door, to being seated, ordering and dining; our party had a fabulous time. Have already told folk about Booker’s. Looking to return the weekend of Martin Luther King holiday.
Food was delicious fast and respectful service I definitely recommend 🤤😋
Our server was delightful ; the food was delicious! I dine here often. I brought a good friend for her first time! She will return!!
I had such an excellent brunch experience! The service and food were excellent! I cannot wait to do Happy Hour at Bookers!
Food always good. They don't disappoint. The grits is awesooooome.
Brunch at Booker’s was recommended to us and it was delightful! My husband and I ordered the 2 specials for that morning and they were delicious, although the shrimp in the omelet was a bit fishy tasting. Good service and cute inside. I would definitely go back.
The home fries were cold... it was a holiday weekend, so maybe inexperienced staff working... but please do no serve cold home fries!
The wait staff was amazing. My phone was dead and I had no charger and they loaned me one, the food was delicious and fast.
The food and service was wonderful as always.
I will say that this was my 4th time at Bookers, the other times I was with parties of 5 or more. This time there were only 2 of us and I noticed that the gratuity was already included. Pay attention, you may over tip!
