Even in a horrid storm, this delight is a short walk from home. The vie of west Philly, over the river with the sunset at night, is magnificent especially with our expanding skyline.

The location, in the marketplace design center, is a bit difficult to find, particularly if you are there after hours when the other stores in the building are closed, but there is pretty good signage directing you to the 4th floor and the restaurant. Food was great, as were cocktails and wine selection.

My new wife and I decided to have our First Valentine's Day at Bistro St. Tropez. I researched hundreds of restaurants in the Philadelphia and South Jersey area and decided upon this based on the reviews and information I read. I have no regrets.

We visited Bistro St. Tropez for lunch during restaurant week. We were dissapointed with the service because it took 2.5 hours to eat lunch at our 1:30 reservation. The service was extremely slow. We were also dissapointed with the acoustics in the restaurant because it was extremely loud where it was hard to talk to person across the table. We... More

Tucked away in the corner of the 3rd floor of what looks like a furniture showcase office building, it's not an obvious place for a French restaurant, but this place has been here for at least a decade and probably will be here a decade more. Not cheap, but good french cuisine. I ordered scallops here and they were seared... More

I have waited several weeks to post a review of the Bistro St. Tropez to see if my impression changed however they haven't. My wife and I visited the restaurant several weeks ago based on a glowing recommendation from the Innkeeper at our accomodation. I had subsequently read some very favorable reviews on TA and we both were looking forward... More

Elegant menu in unexpected surroundings. Located on the second floor of a designer furniture showcase building, this restaurant looks out across the river with great views of the skyline and festively lit, arcing bridge. We had scallops followed by profiteroles and creme brulee desserts, all of which were delightful.

I decided to go to Bistro St. Tropez on the last day of Philadelphia Restaurant Week. Philadelphia has quite a number of Italian and Steak restaurants, so I wanted to try something a little different. I am so glad that I did!
