We started with a happy hour drink and snacks (happy hour is M-F 5-7), then headed in to dinner. The menu isn't extensive, but it is thoughtful and creative, and includes small plates, soups/salads, and some very nice entrees. The vichyssoise with scallop was a real standout, as was a simple green salad with a light application of a champagne-based dressing. Our entree choices were very good--a carbonara made with guanciale, topped with a poached egg, scallops, a wild mushroom pizza. Several of our group enjoyed cocktails chosen from a great selection of house specialties. There is a full service bar, but one can bring in one's own wine, and there is no corkage fee. Service was great throughout the meal. This is another great Garces restaurant, and one of the best!

Enjoyed a great meal at GTP tonite. Food was very good with nice, small portions. Unfortunately, I can't recommend this restaurant based on how slow and inattentive the service was. It took 45 minutes to have our drink order taken.

Perhaps there weren't enough waiters tonite. Or perhaps our service just sucked.

The menu is a little hard to understand but with translation it worked out, would have loved more explanations on the actual menu.

Really good food and great service! Really recommend the moules that comes with the fries fries in duck fat!

Love the fact that you can go and pick out any oil you want for your bread.

I have been to several Garce's restaurants and all have been good or very good. This was may be an exception.

The restaurant was about 75% full on a Friday night. We were seated quickly and drink orders taken. It took our server about 15 mins to get our drinks. Then the server disappeared again for some time. Looks like she was also working with customers in a different section of restaurant.

The food did come up pretty quickly and the Molet was especially good. However, some of the entrées were really over-salted. We spoke to the manager and she said that they would take care of it. However, when the bill came no adjustment was made and when we asked she said that since it was partially eaten she couldn't remove it from the bill.

Philly has such a wide range of great restaurants that I doubt I will be back.
