Walnut Hill College distinguishes itself from other hospitality schools with its four on-campus restaurants, which are open to the public.

In each of our restaurants, ambiance and cuisine collide to create a one-of-a-kind dining experience that guests won’t soon forget. From our classic International Bistro to our modern Great Chefs room, guests can explore diverse menus and receive exceptional food and service—all provided by our students. Our resident sommelier has also carefully curated a wine list that has won The Wine Spectator Award of Excellence every year for over a decade. So whether you’d like to be transported to Rome in our Italian Trattoria or prefer to go on a cross-country culinary tour in the American Heartland, we look forward to treating you to a memorable night of fine dining.

We went for Valentine’s Day. It was a great experience. The food was very good. And the decor is what I call “fake fancy”. It feels like you are at a restaurant at Epcot in Disney World. We were in “Italy” in the courtyard. Our waiter was a young, awkward student. It was the Valentines special so a bit pricey. But I definitely want to go back to try other menus.

WHC has exceptional chefs servers bartenders and food. The decor of each room is beautiful. And the price can’t be beat! Such a delicious deal.

We went to the Holiday Buffet. It was interesting and delicious. I think there should be a bit more space around the room to get to the food tables. The wait staff were amazing. Very attentive. The young man at the flambe table was chatty and laughed when he had a group that wanted to see the fire. Fun evening.

Not sure the quality of the food was worth the $50 price ticket. I do not plan on going back myself, but I would recommend to a friend. The experience was enjoyable, and our waitress Nina was a doll!

As always the food, ambiance, and service never ...disappoints. I usually go around Christmas because it’s a good way to add to the holiday season

The ambiance was like a Michelin star restaurant and it felt good to know that students were being helped.

Once again the Holiday Buffet was an enjoyable evening. The food is consistently delicious. I am always impressed by the students - their professionalism, cheery nature and attention to detail.
