This quaint and relaxed atmosphere serves as the perfect backdrop for a bistro-style dining experience. We want our guests to feel at home as they enjoy delicious food and wine with friends and family over a long dinner, much like one would at a bistro in the heart of Paris. In addition, Bistro Perrier at Walnut Hill College has been awarded a Wine Spectator award for over thirteen consecutive years and has won the Diner's Choice for Best French Cuisine and Ambiance in Philadelphia.

OUR HOSPITALITY

Walnut Hill College has focused on educating students in the art of classic French cuisine since it was founded in 1974. From beef bourguignon to crème brûlée, our students have learned the techniques and flavors of France, and we are delighted to showcase their talents at our new signature French restaurant, Bistro Perrier.
