Dinner at The Restaurant School is a wonderful experiece. The food is delicious, the staff professional and atmosphere friendly.
We are a small group that plans seasonal dinner experiences. We have dined in the white room twice and the main room twice. Each experience has been positively enjoyable. We have recommended the Restaurant school to other.

Greatness comes in time
Everything was good except the service was slow. Took a while for each course to arrive.

The food at the Restaurant
The food at the Restaurant School is always delicious. It is and exceptional value for the price. The idea of country-themed menus was great.

It is great to support college students and to see how pre-professional students conduct themselves in a "classroom environment". The area is beautiful, the food is delicious, the service is excellent. Always a pleasure to dine here. Truly a great restaurant in the WEst Philly/University City area.

Before going the restaurant, you must understand its purpose. The taste and services may be poor in comparison with other professional restaurants, but C/P is definitely excellent in the taste and services. Please cooperate training for students.

One of my children is a student
One of my children is a student here, so I may be biased. I went with an open mind, knowing that everyone here is learning. Having said that, the waitress was new, and was clearly a bit nervous. We smiled, and gave her words of encouragement throughout the night. She was so likable, and my meal was served quickly and properly.
The food was great, again, there are all students in the kitchen. The fish was a little bland, but that really is something that the head chef should have been watching and helping with. The vegetables were perfect, and well seasoned, which perked the fish right up.
Desserts, well, they were fantastic. Great at any restaurant at any price. I will be going again.

Enjoyable as always
Dining at the Restaurant School is always a fun evening. The staff/students are always pleasant, friendly, and eager to please. The food is really tasty and sometimes interesting and the price can't be beat. $21 for a delicious 3 course meal is the best bargain in town. The desserts this time were outstanding!

This was a very enjoyable experience! The food was great and the service extremely attentive. The only criticism I have is that the server, who was very pleasant and attentive, could have been more knowledgible about the menu. She immediately went to find the answers to any question she couldn't answer herself, but perhaps could have been better trained about the menu items beforehand. Since this is actually a training program she may not have been working very long.The others on the floor were quick to fill water glasses, remove emply dishes or get anything we asked for when out server was not nearby. All in all, I will recommend this to anyone.

Superb all around. New menu
Superb all around. New menu every 10 weeks. The students are really on their toes as their faculty supervise in an unobtrusive manner. Free secure parking on site. Highly recommended.

A fabulous deal
Despite some issues with the food preparation, this is one of the best deals in town.
$21 for a substantial three course meal in a stunning atmosphere cannot be beat.

This was our third time here, and we enjoyed the experience. Our food was tasty, my sea bass juicy and well prepared. My wife's pork loin, was a bit over cooked......but still quite good. Since this is a school restaurant, the service was very good, but delivered with a bit of apprehension, since each server knew they were being graded. But overall, the service was better than what you will experience in most restaurants......they are being taught to do it the right way.

Lovely Meal at Interntl Bistro
We booked a reservation on Tuesday evening to celebrate son's 18th birthday and were surprised that they weren't more crowded. We were warmly greeted and had numerous attentive servers offering us rolls, replenishing our water glasses and checking on the status of our meals.
Our menu offered some interesting selections that were all quite good. I ordered the mussels in a coconut milk infused broth, sea bass wrapped in banana leaves and a chocolate tart with ice cream. Each dish was artfully plated -- particularly the dessert dishes. My son's dessert arrived with "Happy Birthday" written with chocolate sauce on the plate rim -- it looked beautiful and he said it was delicious.
Kudos to the cooks in training! Great value!

A Good Meal
The fixed price, three courses for $21 and good wine for $6, is one of the best meal bargains around. The choices for each course were interesting and reasonably complex, presented well with good service follow-up. The students are reasonably skilled and are certainly interested in what they are doing. The restaurant is worth a visit a couple times a year.
