Awesome Experience – I went to Chloe last night with my mom, and my friend ,Sarah. When my friend Sarah recommended it, I was a little skeptical due to some of the reviews I had read. However, I wanted to see for myself what this resturant would be like, and believe me, I am happy I did!!!!
We went to Chloe around 6, and we had no wait at all! The staff was friendly and informative about the menu. We took I time with the menu and didn't feel rushed at all to order. Our waitress was awesome!
We ended up ordering the mussells as an appitizer to share among the 3 of us. They were incredible, from the sauce, to the bread to the actual mussells, it was awesome! And there was enought for all of us to share!
My friend Sarah and I ordered the tuna, which was AMAZING, while my mom ordered the scallops, which were also incredible! We didn't end up ordering dessert, because we were all so full, but next time, I hope to! They looked great! Our waitress didn't push us out when we were finished, she told us to enjoy our wine, after dinner,so we did!
All in all I highly recommend this resturant! I am defintly going back!
Bad Reviewer – On Thursday night ate at Chloe for the second time. Loved it..., but didn't think they needed my review, place was full, people were happy...we were very happy.( had Tuna, Gnocchi, Ribs and Chicken). Tonite we went to Vetri, loved it, was going to post about it, saw negative review. Checked it out and realized same person had posted a bad review of Chloe...Dude what is your problem.?..You hate Chloe & Vetri? Really? Are you a plant ? Both this persons reviews should be removed from both sites. Everyone loves Chloe & Vetri.
Don't Waste Your Time – I'll get right to the point: the decor was pretty pathetic, service sucked, and food was so-so. I had the pork chop with sweet potato mashed potato's topped with pineapple (it was a special). Anyway, the juice from the pineapple turned my sweet potato mash into sweet potato soup. The pork chop was okay but I couldn't finish all of it because a portion of it was undercooked. Did I mention the decor is tragic. There are just too many great BYO's out there at the same price point to waste your time going here.
Really good eats – Went to Chloe on Friday night with a group of friends. Service was great , casual and fun. My friend wants to work there. Food was really great. I had a pork chop that was soooo big I got another meal out of it the next day. One friend had the bbq ribs, another had the chicken, another had scallops. Everything was great!!! Don't miss the cheeesecake. Can't wait to go back!
Hateful Staff – I have to admit, the food was pretty good (although the entrees were the size of a small app). However, I have never seen such a miserable waitstaff in my life. We dealt with 4 different people working the front of the house and each was ruder than the next. Everyone there seemed to hate the customers and treated us with utter disdain. 3 ravioli in a butter sauce isn't worth the abuse.
Best BYO in philly? – I've been to Chloe multiple times and have had not complaints, except their no-reservations policy.
Service has always been prompt and friendly.
The food has been consistently great and the range of dishes sufficient for group of as many as 6 at a time.
If I had to name one weakness, it would be the deserts which are good yet not up to the rest of the food. But then again, the portions are such that I suspect few will have room for deserts anyhow.
Good food but not fun! – My husband and I are in our mid-late twenties. When we go to dinner, we like to go to fun, vibrant places. Our favorite BYOB is Mercado, but we thought we would try something new. Chloe's food was good - no complaints. But the atmosphere was lacking. We were, by several decades, the youngest people there. Our attire was wrong - I wore jeans and a halter top and felt very overdressed/naked among the cardigan clad women in the restaurant. Sitting was close, which is typical. However, we were seated next to the most obnoxious, loud speaking couple. Neither I, nor my husband, could concentrate on our own conversation, and the conversation we were absorbed in was not even a good one. The lighting was dark, but not a good romantic dark - more of a depressing dark. I definitely don't recommend this restaurant for young couples who are looking for a fun (or romantic night) on the town.
food that's worth the wait – My girlfriend and I went to Chloe last night and ate till we could eat no more. Started with tuna tartar, baked oysters, and the Chloe salad. Then we had wonderfully light gnocchi with a 3 meat ragu. Then I had BBQ ribs with grown up mac & cheese, and she had roast chicken with chesse, tomatoes & I think artichokes. And then we had cheesecake for dessert. We ate every last bite! Great food.
Love that pizza – My husband & I go to Chloe twice a month because I crave the pizza with the fig jam!!!! We also love the sushi grade tuna and the lamb. The staff is informative and friendly. It's always yummy. Go, eat, enjoy!
A very unpleasant experience - avoid CHLOE !! – Don't believe the hype!!! We went after reading some good reviews here on this site. But READ CLOSER!!!
The reviews on City Search about the rude staff are dead-on. Our waitress was terrible - haughty and not at all accommodating. We waited forever - with at least one party arriving after we did and being seated before we were. Worst of all - the food was completely unimpressive. My friend got terribly sick from the lamb.
Chloe would be a bad restaurant in a 2nd-rate city. In Philadelphia, which is full of great restaurants with friendly staffs, it is just plain awful.
