This was my first visit to La Veranda, although I have passed by the establishment often. To start off with I decided to valet park; the attendant was quick and friendly and most accommodating. From the moment we entered the front doors we were greeted and made to feel at home from the . maître d to the waiter it was top notch service all the way. To begin with my wife ordered the cream of Asparagus soup and I ordered the crab-meat stuffed mushrooms and both were very tasty. For the entree I ordered the T-Bone steak which they cut fresh to order and served with green beans and roasted potatoes. The steak was very big and thick and juicy and tasty. This was my first visit but it will not be my last.

Had dinner there tonight (New Years Eve). 5 adults and 2 kids stuffed in a small round table. It was in the back room and the view was nice but it was freezing! Everyone in that room had their jackets on! They didn't have a high chair for my nephew who just turned one last week with a strap on it so he had to be held the entire time. The apps were just gross. After waiting for about an hour (maybe longer) 3 entrees came. 4 were missing (2 of them being the kids). We had to send back the 3 that came to keep them warm while waiting on the rest. The others showed up about 25 minutes later. I ordered a chicken dish with garlic, rosemary and wine. Well, I tasted none of what I just mentioned. I cook a lot and I know that the dish I was served was not prepared that way!! The chicken was boiled and it was obviously sitting it a huge pan with all the other breasts of chicken being served that night. That food was NOT made to order. It was gross and when they cleared my plate they asked if I wanted it wrapped. My sister started to laugh. I just said, NO. Nobody at our table enjoyed or even liked their meal. I've had better frozen dinners. Our waiter was overwhelmed (and that's fine because of the holiday but we were there at 5pm). I feel bad for those there when it got busy!!! The girls that were working there were all really great at clearing our plates and just being nice. This place just has Gordon Ramsey all over it. No lie!!! Great spot (view is very nice) but the food and the service we got was HORRIBLE!!!! The food being the worst! It's really a shame. Went to Bistro Romano last year on Lombard. BEST EVER! Sorry we didn't go there again. Maybe it was just a bad night here but I can't see all that going wrong in one night. Also sorry we had to pay for it all! What a way to celebrate the New Year.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Philly. The food is always delicious. The service is perfect! From the minute you walk in the door, everyone in the restaurant is very pleasant and eager to serve. My favorite dishes are the pasta primavera and the spinach ravioli. My husband likes the salmon. Great place to get some really good Italian food!

Went alone and got attitude the moment I walked in the door. Waiter took forever to come by. Had a pretty good straciatelli soup but the the Seafood Risotto smelled funky so I sent it back and asked for the check. They charged me for the Risotto. Not going back.

this place should be packed! the food is excellent and the hand cut steaks are the best in town, cooked on an open hard wood fire right in front of you. not "stuffy" the service is "classic" oldworld italian. the views of the delaware,piers 5/3 and marina, offer a unique in-city experience. outside dining on the marina can't be matched in the region, your food woun't get dirty like some sidewalks!
