On a recent trip to St Petersburg, FL we had a breakfast meeting at the historic Vanoy Hotel. The dining room (Marchand) has been restored impeccably to its previous and dignified state (building was built in 1925). It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. The breakfast buffet included a variety of lovely offerings including fresh... More

Best deal in town for an elegant 3 course early dinner in a beautiful room. We had the salmon which was excellent! Service was attentive. Everything was prepared perfectly. We had a great experience and look forward to returning in the near future.

My husband and I splurged on dinner at Marchand's and were very happy that we did. Our server was quite friendly and attentive, the food was delicious, and the prices were just right. The menu choices were quite creative, and the wine list extensive. It was a wonderful night.

Tried Marchand's for the first time. Had heard mixed reviews from other people, but wanted to try it anyway. We asked for the 1925 menu, which is a special fixed menu for $19.25, the year the Vinoy opened. I had the salmon which was really good, prepared perfectly. My husband had the short rib, also very, very good. The menu... More

Restaurant is huge and very open. It is neat having the large bar in the middle. Enjoyed the breakfast buffet, reasonably priced at $20 per person. Service was friendly. They had a wide... More

We had a wonderful evening of drinks and food at Marchands. Our party ended up being larger than expected but they very quickly accommodated us. Quick, service, great staff and good food.

Always enjoy the staff at this St Pete hangout known more to the locals than all the other joints on Beach Dr

We had breakfast here the morning we left St Petersburg. It was a very large buffet ranging from a variety of cold items including lox and pate to a range of hot breakfast dishes as well as freshly prepared omelettes from the kitchen.

We've eaten at Marchand's several times when we've been in St. Pete. However, we've always had the early bird dinner, which concludes at 6:30 p.m. sharp. It's prix fixe and priced around $19.25 (the year the hotel opened, I think). The regular menu is very over-priced. The food is acceptable, but not at all commensurate with the regular dinner price.... More

Greetings from The Vinoy and thanks for joining us for dinner in Marchand's. I am so happy that you enjoyed our Classic Dining which commemorates our opening year of 1925. It has been well received. Thank you also for your comments about our regular menu. You are right, there are so many options to choose from here in town now... More
