Delicious food; Patio seating available

Excellent food and service. I would recommend sitting outside on the patio, they have plenty of umbrellas to keep it cool and shady. I would definitely recommend this place to others. Delicious.

Our experience was introduced by the waiter seating us in the only booth which had blazing sun in our eyes, while other booths were open (since the restaurant was not busy). We did finally ask to move and were seated elsewhere, but it should have been automatic. The menu is limited, so you might want to check before you go... More

We recently went here for Valentine's Day. I called the day of and was able to get a reservation which was a surprise since not only was it valentines but it was AT&T Pro-Am weekend, score! We sat outside on the patio which was hidden away (cannot see from the street), it was not overly crowded which was another pleasant... More

Popped in on the off chance for lunch, swayed by the offer of the best French Onion Soup!! They weren't lying, it was delicious. We enjoyed lunch so much, reserved a table for dinner that same evening. Dinner was just as good. Highly recommend this place, best food we've had so far in California. You won't be disappointed.

What a feast and the food kept coming. Escargot was wonderful, as was the steak. Luckily we saved room for the souffle dessert. 2 come so we did not have to decide between Grand Marnier and chocolate. They say it serves 2, but more like 4

First, go to this place! In a trip filled with a comedy of errors we were sent to this restaurant. What an oasis. They have a lovely patio where you can sit with your dog! Very French. And then in amazing surprise they have dog menu. We had traditional French, my salad nicoise was amazing. My princess, or daughter who... More

The interior of this restaurant is very informal, verging on the rustic, but the food and style are of a place that takes its food and wine very seriously. Ask for one of the cute semi-circular booths. Desserts are beautifully presented, and the waiter was knowledgeable. We enjoyed one of the best champagnes I've ever tried - really top notch.... More

Good authentic French cuisine and a nice ambience. They also do pizza which obviously helps with revenue. Couldn't' fault the food or service and certainly wood go back for the soufflé.

We stopped in for a late afternoon lunch at this charming, French bistro-style restaurant. Lunch entrée’s included salads, pizzas, croque monsieur, smoked mussels, steak and frites, fruits de mer, fresh fish, pastas, crepes de veau (veal), and other typical French dishes. Desserts included several souffles, the traditional Grand Marnier or Chocolate souffles requiring the requisite 20 minutes to prepare. The... More

I have been to Le St. Tropez perhaps six times, mostly alone and probably twice with friends. Each time I/we have been treated to very good food and service. Perhaps excellent but then there are a couple restaurants in the world that I reserve for excellent food, otherwise this restaurant would get five stars. I have had the swordfish, salmon,... More
