Most friendly and helpful staff...food amazing!!!
Our daughter Lindsey and her husband Scott got married on March 23, 2019, and it was such a beautiful and magical day. We had the best experience w/Knowlton planning our daughter's wedding. Everyone we dealt with was kind, helpful and professional. The food was insanely delicious and cake so amazing...I loved the cake so much, I ate leftover cake for the entire week after weeding:)...The best venue ever...you felt as if you were in a warm home with gorgeous details that took your breath away! Thank you so much for the wonderful memories!!!Sent on 04/16/2019

Making history in Philadelphia
My husband and I knew we wanted to have our wedding here the moment we walked in the door. The building has so much history and it has stood the test of time. We were looking for a location close to home, which would look incredible everywhere in photos, and would also not break the bank. We really wanted to get married in a historic building, and this place had ticked all the boxes. All the food was delicious and we had heard so many compliments about the food and the building. Our favorites were the duck hors d'oeuvres, the chicken and waffles, and the bavarian cream filled chiffon cake. It felt so luxurious. The staff was always friendly, attentive and incredible accomodating. We also had a wine tasting in the cellar, which is a very romantic little spot that feels like being transported to Europe. It's incredibly charming and was a key part in our perfect day ever.Sent on 04/27/2020

Beautiful Venue, Great Food, Attentive Staff
The Knowlton Mansion is a hidden gem in North Philadelphia. I had never heard of it before I started planning my wedding, but am so glad I found it. The venue is beautiful, the staff were responsive and attentive both during the planning phase and on the day of our wedding (they made sure we ate, and our glasses were never empty!) The food was really great - and they threw in some nice additions like a wine tasting in the wine cellar and valet parking. I would highly recommend!Sent on 01/03/2020
Great Staff, Venue and Fabulous Food. Work with this Venue numerous times throughout the Year.
Very polite and easy to work with. Beautiful location and would recommend to all!
I had the pleasure of once again officiating at a wedding at Knowlton Mansion last night. I was so impressed. The place looked so beautiful, inside and out and the cocktail hour food that I tasted was fabulous and abundant. The staff was all professional and approachable. I love recommending Knowlton Mansion to brides when they ask. I look forward to marrying my next couple there!
