Went there while we were in Philadelphia. It was my first time there. Its a great place. Great selection of beers. The food looked good too. Knowledgable staff. The back beer bar has all the rare beers. The front beer bar has beers you can usually find. A place you should go to if you are in the area. Nice place.

Anytime after 5pm, pretty much every day of the week, this place is packed. Thatís the first annoying thing about Monkís. The people working there are largely snobby elitists, for some reason. The "hostess" girl was a particular b*tch. She insisted that my friend and I did whatever she wanted, and also scrutinized our IDís as if they were fakes (we are both almost 30). We were actaully eating, and there were a few small tables open, but she wouldnít let us sit there. We were designated to what appeared to be some kind of 3" wide shelf, which would hardly have supported a beer glass, let alone a plate. We ended up eating at the bar. I just donít like the people who work here at all. That being said, there are bright spots. The food is amazing. There is a large beer selection. This is qualified, however, as the prices are outrageous. Itís difficult to get any Belgium for under $7.50, and in general it just seems that they double the prices bottle shops charge for singles. I just donít like going here anymore. Itís annoying, I donít like the pricks working there, and thereís no need to spend so much for pretty standard beer offerings.

I always stop in when Iím back in Philadelphia, this place is one of the only things that makes me regret moving to California. The food ranges from very good to awesome, and if youíre willing to ask questions will get great recommendations from the staff every time.

This place is great for the selection and food is decent although service is horible 50% of the time and the beer is overpriced. Almost $8 for a 10oz draft beer. And then you give you a hard time if you want to tr a sample. Forgive me if Iím tentative on dropping $7.70 on a beer Iíve never had before, like itíd kill them to give me a 1 oz taste of the stuff. The staff has a tendency to make you feel like a little child. No tip for you, come back two weeks...

I stopped in around 8:30 on a Thursday night. It was very packed, so I left and came back later. This is a rather cozy, semi-trendy, but loud restaurant/ beer bar. There are actually two bars, one in the front and one in the back. There is a better selection of draft beers in the back. I would say 90% of the beers they carry are Belgian, and a very nice selection at that. I thought it was rather awesome that the majority of people eating dinner where drinking Belgians beers, not wine. I would guess that most of them were not beer geeks, just open minded diners that appreciate good beer. Bartender up front was very unattentive and slow. The ones in the back were the complete opposite. I did not try the food, maybe next time. If you are in Philly, Monkís Cafť is a must visit. It will mostly likely be crowded and a little loud, so I would suggest off peak hours if you can swing it.

"Hey, Iím a fucking uppity bitch and Iím too hip to care if you get good service. íSit at a table?í Itís only 11pm and we need these 10 empty tables for people eating dinner until 1am. Hereís the bottle menu without the tap list because I donít care what you want." This exactly how Iíve felt the two times I went to this dick-hole.

I had this place built up so high in my head, but it was kind of a let down. It seemed too trendy. We couldnít get a seat. They really didnít have anything too rare. and they were out of most beers i asked for. Maybe i was there on an off night? Iíll give it another chance.

This place is a must stop for any craft beer geek or belgian beer lover. I was excited about making a stop here, and it definitely lived up to the hype. Stopped here with brewer dirtymike and another friend. We walked in at 4:30 PM on a Tuesday, so we were able to get a table right away, the bar was already packed. At the table, we opened their beer bible, aka beer menu and I was completely floored, and almost drooling at that point. A ridiculous amount of bottles are offered- Belgians, well known and rare, American made Belgians, and a good amount of well known and rare non-Belgian craft beers. Waittress was attentive, friendly, and used proper glassware. Had an order of mussels which were very good, and the pommes frites had a great bourbon mayonaise dipping sauce, but the fries themselves were alittle soft and soggy. tasted good though. Had a Russian River Temptation and their contracted house beer...just wish I could have spent more time there.

If you are in Philly and love really great belgian brews then you have just found heaven. The bar staff is extemely knowledgable and can always pck you the perfect beer. Food- the menu is limited but if you like mussels they are a must have. The only major drawback is that it is a small place and you get packed in like sardines on the weekends. But hey, there is always a price to pay for a little slice of beer heaven!
