1ST Review!!!! I must say that I enjoy great food and that exactly what I got from The Drop. My girlfriend and I went there on a whim from groupon. Both of us will be coming back. The waitress ( not sure if she was the owner or not, we got there right when they opened) was very helpful and... More

We were craving charcuterie this past Saturday, saw their Groupon and got the $70 option. When we got there they asked if we had reservations (didn't know they were required) We didn't but they let us seat anyway. There were 6-8 open tables so I'm not sure what they were getting at, but whatever.... They only had 2 servers on... More

A great place to eat in a location largely unknown. Delicits food in a quaint building with exposed brick walls. The pork small plate was surprisingly large and incredibly tender. Save room for the bread pudding desert. It's likely the best you'll find anywhere!

Met with an old friend here and it is an ideal place for such a rendez-vous. These days light lunches are all I am up for and this was perfect, about which more in a minute. The bistro sits on the corner of 31st and a side street, there is plentiful parking at the side and to the back but... More

The first time we went to The Drop Bar & Bistro we & our 3 kids were not aware that we needed reservations so upon entering the first thing said before we even got in the door was....Do you have reservations? My reply was "no", your website didn't indicate that we needed them. The wierd part was that there were... More

We live south in the 'burbs', so for us, the intersection of 31st & Oak is the 'hood'. But our friends who recommended it have a more sophisticated name for it: Martini Corner! Had a Groupon, so we gave it a shot. Fun Martini drink menu for sure. We sampled the Bellini Martini and The Heater. We ordered 3 "boards"... More

My husband and I took a 3 day mini vacation and found this place because I bought a groupon! We would have never found this place before! The atmosphere was very charming but with a cool vibe! We ordered the stuffed mushrooms that were so delicious! We ordered the bruschetta which was nice but I would if I could do... More

A colleague called to ask if I wanted to have lunch. So, last Friday 22 July, we headed to The Drop Bistro. I had been to this restaurant several years earlier, but that was before I was contributing to Trip Advisor. I had a Greek Salad. It was large and very good. I also had lavender lemonade. When I got... More

Bartenders have increased there abilities with some very nice craft cocktails. Bruschetta plates are still huge and beautifully done. Great place to start or finish the night with drinks and small bites.
