Three course meal for $35 for restaurant week. We sat in the window with a view of the river and the bridges - beautiful at night. Service by Matt was perfect - very knowledgeable and available when needed. Large choice of options for each course and all were perfect bistro fare. Escargot app was a... read more

Visited this restaurant with 7 friends during Center City Restaurant Week. The restaurant is located on the 4th floor of the Market Place Design Center across from the PECO BLDG. Everyone raved about their meal and the service was excellent. It was worth going off my diet for the dessert which was like chocolate cake and mousse topped anglaise sauce--pure... More

Found this restaurant in Philly guide and had no idea what to expect. It's on the 4th floor of the Design Center on Market (tip to Google map users-ignore the directions. Took us 20 minutes rather than 5 from our downtown hotel because Google didn't believe bistro really is on Market!) The food is amazing! Three course, fixed price dinner... More

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. But we go for the food and service. We have never been for lunch, only dinner, and the consistency over several years is remarkable. Really this is... More

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. The ambiance was excellent and it was definitely the kind of place I wanted to take... More

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.
