The Dandelion's large wooden front door caught my attention as my friend and I were walking through the neighborhood. It was quite a find. The atmosphere is great, the food is well-prepared traditional British fare, and the service is top notch.
Dropped in for lunch when visiting the area on weekends. The building is very delicate, covered with ivy. It's like an old British pub. There are many types of food on the menu, but we chose fish and chips! Oh yes! They are great. I also tried shepherd's pie, it was delicious. The service is attentive and friendly. When asked, I was ready to suggest. Will definitely be back!
The temperature dropped suddenly and I wanted to eat Philadelphia’s cheesesteak. I searched the whole Shanghai, which claims to include global food, and I couldn’t find one. It seems that every time I go to a new place I have eaten new food for the last time.
My son and I visited The Dandelion after the suggestion of friend. This quaint restaurant has two levels - main floor is a bar (very busy when we arrived) and an upper level where they have dining in many different areas. My only complaint about the upstairs was that it was fairly dark and this made reading the menu difficult. Once I was able to see (with the help of my phone) what was on the menu, I eager awaited my fish and chips. The fish was tender and flaky with a very light batter. It was seasoned perfectly. To compliment my meal I had a Manger's Pear Cider. My son had the mac and cheese. Both meals were satisfying and reasonably priced. As the evening wore on, we had a beautiful view of the city and the setting sun.
Found this place by just wandering and thought it looked pretty, service was very good and we were seated and drinks arrived very quickly. The menu was varied and I had the rabbit pie which was delicious and my husband had the crab risotto which was packed full of crab (also delicious) and shared the sticky toffee pudding for desert prices were reasonable and would recommend to anyone visiting Philly
Lovely food, good size portions, friendly staff and food served quickly. Only negative was it was a little too dark for a restaurant and noisy downstairs. Small gripes though and would be happy to eat there again.
My wife and I enjoyed a dinner there recently. I had the Tandoori Chicken and my wife had the fish and chips. The chicken was tender and full of flavor. The fish and chips were very good as well. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful and we had a very enjoyable evening. We asked three groups of people who were leaving the restaurant and all three of them raved about the food. They were right! Do yourself a favor, go try the chicken and you will not be disappointed!
