Excellent. But I won’t mind to try venison, duck, lamb dishes next time I go there.
Thank you!

Overall we had a nice time at Mica. The food was good but the portion was small. It might not be conducive for people who eats big dinner.

This had to have been one of the BEST meals I have ever had. Chef Yianni out did himself with the offerings my wife and I had. We got the tasting menu and each and every taste was outstanding. Every plate that came out just got better and better. Our server was excellent and the atmosphere was cozy (if not a little noisy). Overall an extremely enjoyable evening to celebrate my wife's birthday and I would highly recommend Mica.

I was initially reluctant to attend Mica for my 65th Birthday celebration with my wife because the online menu just wasn't doing anything for me. Sometimes you get an idea in your head about an appetizer, entree, portion size, etc., and you can't shake the past loose, i.e., other restaurant experiences, be they bad or good.

But, since we generally go to the same two / three places all the time, we said it's time to check out a place where we haven't been. Well, kudos to Mica, and let me / us both give a round of applause to Wait-Staff person Jackie, if that's her name, because she was on point the entire time. We'll be back.

At 6:00 on a Saturday the room filled up fast. Much noisier than on previous visits. Tasting menu was very good but seemed light on protein.

Mica is one of my favorite restaurants in the entire Philadelphia area. The menu is playful, eclectic, and flawlessly executed. The service stands up to the quality of the food with friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive staff. If you are looking for a perfect dining experience from start to finish, look no further than Mica.

Had very pleasant Mother’s Day Brunch at Mica. First courses of Asparagus soup and green salad were delicious. Eggs Benedict (real homemade hollandaise sauce!) main course with butterscotch pudding for dessert all excellent. Pleasant service but a little slow. Never offered to replenish or heat up my (very good) coffee. We love the cozy and reasonably quiet ambiance at Mica.

The New Orleans fixed priced menu was delicious. Also, it did not taste especially 'salty' as some of the selections in earlier fixed menus did. Suggest continuing to use natural flavors and/or low sodium herbs.

Romantic BYOB that is great for a date or friend gathering. We did the chef’s tasting menu and were very happy we did! Each course was executed perfectly and seasoned well. They have salt and pepper on the table but this chef knows his business, so it’s a formality to have it on there. My favorite was the tuna crudo. We will definitely return!

The scallops entree was phenomenal, as was the salmon. Small plates that were outstanding were charred eggplant, cauliflower soup and the beet salad. Food is always great! Chef sent out some croquettes, which is a nice touch. I would say the front room has more ambiance than the back room. But the back room is quieter and cozy.

This was our first time at Mica and started off with blue crab beignets which were fabulous! The other snacks and appetizers were pretty good and our main dishes of scallops, lamb, crispy salmon and chicken were great, with the scallops dish being less great, but certainly good. Bread was also delicious, but other than the churros, we would skip dessert next time.

The room was like being in a fireside quaint inn and we loved the ambiance!

We have dined at Mica many times over the past 5 years or so and we have always been impressed by the quality of their food and their creativity but this time was special. My wife is careful about her food choices but she decided, with some encouragement from the other diners who were nearby, to go with the prix fixe. The portions were reasonable and both of us were satisfied without being deprived at all. But the flavors were amazing. This is a great restaurant and we are lucky to have it in Chestnut Hill.

The food was absolutely delicious. We ordered three appetizers and barkers, and they really worked! I was particularly fond of my snails, draped with a green sauce (pesto?) that made me very happy. I liked the tuna tartar, but there was a little too many carrot slices. And I started with oysters with a hint of mushrooms, but I didn’t find them.
