"Good food but abysmal service."

That's probably because cheapskates lke lessnow59 think that 15 percent is a good tip for great service.

Best upscale chain restaurants?

I know Cheesecake Factory is a bit overrated, but, barely better than Applebee's?

Applebee's has the worst food, service and price across the board. I've been to a few of their locations, always at the bequest of others, and everything, from the drinks (soda is watered down) to the apps (gross) to the meals (the riblets had bone splinters in them) to the desserts (still frozen) are awful. At least at CF I can enjoy the bread (awesome) and there's so many choices on the menu that you can't really go wrong. And the Jambalaya Pasta is awesome.

Thanks for all the good suggestions so far, I'm running them by her mom on Sunday so I'll let you know what we decide on.

Thanks for the quick response. I didn't realize La Familigia's entrees were that expensive, the review I read gave me the impression it was cheaper. I'm looking for a place where the entrees shouldn't be more than $25 a person.

Good group dining in Philadelphia

Hey all,

My girlfriend is graduating from college next month and her parents wanted me to select a restaurant downtown we could all go to afterwards. It'll probably be 15-20 of us.

They wanted me to find a place, but I'm having trouble finding something that would be appropriate. There's a ton of places I love to eat downtown, but almost all of them are a)so expensive that I'd feel bad that her parents are picking up the check for that many people or b)Not big enough/not the kind of place you'd recommend to your girlfriend's parents and extended family for "event" dining.

Some of the places I'm considering are:
Cantina Los Caballitos
Ralph's Italian Restaurant
Le Castagne
La Famiglia

Any suggestions?

Thanks!
