“Excellent choice for a dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We visited Carmel during afternoon and stopped by this restaurant for an early family dinner. Maggie our waitress was magnificent so was the owner. Food was really good with a very efficient service. The whole family loved it and recommend it. Atmosphere was very nice. Worth the money we paid. Enjoy it.

“Celebrate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Chef Jean knows how to cook. His sauces are perfect. Went there for a special birthday this week and was treated like VIP. Most memorable.

“Very good, small French restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We recently had dinner with friends and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service.
The rack of lamb was outstanding as was the swordfish (catch of the day). Appetizers were authentically French and also very good. We all thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Le St. Tropez.

“Weak”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

We sat for a very long time waiting for a waiter/waitress. Finally had to ask for someone to bring some water and help us. We were virtually ignored. Ironically there were extra staff just standing around. Finally got some service for our table of 2. Sadly there were only 6 customers in the entire place. In fairness, the wine and cheese was good. Plenty of room for improvement.

“Definitely worth the price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

My husband and I have traveled to many places around the world and experienced many different types of cuisine in many different settings. This was by far one of the best. We had no reservation on a Sunday evening and they graciously took us with no hassle for the room being on the smaller side. I also have a gluten allergy which many restaurants have absolutely no idea what this even means, however almost every single item on their menu accommodated my needs! We each had a glass of wine, with our bread for the table (mine was gluten free, freshly made, light and airy, and delicious) while we waited for our escargot-my first time ever. We then had two pizzas on gluten free pizza dough, one with goat cheese and sun dried tomatoes; the other with anchovies and fresh tomato slices. Everything we tasted here was absolutely delicious and was obviously freshly made. We waited longer than a chain restaurant for our food, but we had no complaints as we prefer our food fresh and wait slightly longer, than it being nuked in a microwave and speedy. The service was incredible as each of the 4 servers that night and the hostess checked on us throughout the meal. Even though there was a glass pitcher at our table to refill our water ourselves, we never once touched it as the servers refilled our glasses as they walked by without us asking for it. Such a pleasant experience and we highly recommend this eatery if you are in the area.
