The small cash-only BYOB is popular for its creative Mediterranean menu served from an open kitchen.- Google
"I would also say that their meats and brussel sprouts are delicious as well."
"Great service and banana bread pudding is AH-MAZING!"

Over rated is an understatement. Horrible service, sub par food, and some obnoxiously loud customers. 8 plastics at a table were so loud that you couldn't hear the people at your own table. The staff ignored everyone else's complaints about the table and did nothing. Once a gentleman at the table next to me asked the table politely to not be so loud, they began to yell and give him the finger. Very classy ladies. Still, nothing was done by the staff that were all 3 feet away from the table. What pissed me off the most is that when I stuck up for the man and said they were being obnoxiously loud, a staff member asked me not to yell... Apparently he hadn't heard them yelling for an hour before that. Eventually we lost our appetite, along with our hearing, and got the check and a manager. He said he "hadn't noticed." He was obviously deaf or sleeping with one of them. Highly unprofessional to let that happen and make the rest of the customers extremely unhappy. Never again. Beware of Audrey Claire.

Short rib pizza and lamb chops were out of this world. If someone sat me down and said you can go to Six Flags and cut all the lines all day or go to Audrey Claire and have those lamb chops ... I would choose those chops baby

A wonderful restaurant in Philadelphia. They are passionate about food and it shows in their menu. Try the flat bread appetizers, you will love them. Service is friendly and attentive.

BYOB with an Intimate setting with great food. The antipasti for two is perfect to split with more than 1 friend. Rustic/Mediterranean food that never disappoints. Make sure to have reservations because it gets packed.

Pretty awesome experience. We went there with a local, who loves it there. It was evidently ‘restaurant week’ in Philly while we were there so not sure what the menu is typically like. For this particular week it was a prix fixe menu, I think there were 5 appetizer selections and 5 or 6 entrees. Appetizers: grilled shrimp were incredible. Perfectly cooked, savory sauce to spice them up little. Fresh pear and gorgonzola flatbread with sunflower seeds was wonderful, bread was light, a great combination of flavors and textures. (I confess I can’t remember the 3rd, but it was good!) Entrees: I had the pork chop which was a generous double chop, roasted to perfection. Topped with a light, complimentary sauce, sautéed asparagus on the side. Portabella mushroom pasta dish was lovely, plenty of mushrooms on a bed of wide flat noodles, buttery sauce. Seared Ahi Tuna was perfectly done also, a light breading, nice and hot on the outside, cool and wonderful inside. Desserts: evidently as part of the prix fixe menu, the restaurant decides what to serve you for dessert. We got a ‘lava’ cake, wonderfully chocolaty and dense, superb cinnamon rice pudding and a fabulous creme brûlée. Above and beyond delicious! (we actually got a 4th dessert, a small portion of a light, cleansing something with some fresh blackberries). Service was good, attentive and friendly. Again, not being a Philadelphia-ite, I was surprised that a restaurant of this caliber doesn’t really have a bar or wine list—it’s BYOB. Also, it’s cash only, which is fairly prominent on the information for the restaurant, but I didn’t pick it out and was unaware of the policy until I pulled out my credit card! We sat outside, the weather was perfect for it. The inside seemed a little cramped and definitely loud. Overall, a great accomplishment, my hat’s off to Audrey Claire (and my fork is ready to return!).

I was visiting from out of town and really thought the atmosphere seemed great when we walked in, however the attitude of the staff quickly changed my opinion. Our waitress QUIT our table after we explained to her we had 6 in our party rather than the 7 in our reservation. The extra person was the difference between a preset and regular menu. We found small black hairs in the Pear pizza that was served to us. Rather than apologize for something so disgusting on our plate the manager just took the dish away and didn't mention anything again. The service and food were not worth the price of the entrees. I would definetely not recommend.

Had my first AC experience last night, during Philadelphia restaurant week and was not disappointed. Cozy but happening atmosphere, tremendous food and the best possible service I could ever expect. I can't wait to go back.

This is my all-time favorite BYOB in the city. Caveat: I lived in Philly from 2008 - 2012 so can only speak to this restaurant until May of 2012. I really love this restaurant as it's small and super quaint. The waiters all wear white shirts with blue jeans, and it's just a very simple look to complement the extremely delicious food. Their mussels are to die for - and they give you excellent homemade bread to dip into the mussel sauce which is so delicious! I would also say that their meats and brussel sprouts are delicious as well. Definitely bring cash when you come, and try to make a reservation or else you're going to have to wait :(
