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! The restaurant is located on the 4th floor of the Marketplace Design Center in Philadelphia. Tables near the... More

My husband and I found the restaurant from Philly's Restaurant Week list. We were going to be at the Art Museum for their "After 5" event on Friday evening and wanted to find a restaurant nearby. Many of the restaurants were already booked, but found this restaurant and saw the previous good reviews. Like the others, this was a great... More

We were researching restaurants who participated in Restaurant Week and found Bistro St. Tropez. Even though it was a prix fixe menu, the choices were extensive. There were five of us and none of us ordered the same entree! We had the salmon in phyllo, sea bass, pork, steak and lamb shank. Escargot was a popular appetizer with our group(... More

We've eaten at Bistro St. Tropez a number of times, and it doesn't disappoint us. The food is always very good. I especially recommend the escargot anytime you're there as a starter. It's unusually prepared and really special. The entrees are all very good, but I definitely prefer their fish or duck dishes. The service there has always been excellent,... More
