And so a final meal at this wonderful, iconic French Restaurant in Philadelphia. The place is closing...a victim of higher rents in the 30th and Market area. As i said before, close your eyes in the fine zinc bar and then squint out onto the bridge above the Schuylkill and for that second you are in Paris. Though this was... More

Restaurant week is a good time to visit a restaurant you might have thought of going to before, but needed an extra boost to get there. Bistro St. Tropez captivated from the moment I read their offerings for the week. Menus and descriptions of the food can make or break one's decision to try a restaurant; in this case I... More

We were introduced to this hidden gem, open since 1987, by my brother-in-law. He recommended it as a great option, especially with Restaurant Week prices. We all had the three course tasting menu. (Easily the best $35 and under meal I have eaten outside of France including Provence, even with the weak Euro.) It surpassed my expectations: the food was... More

The Bistro is always serving great French inspired food by chef Patrice in a modern comfortable dining room and with very good service. You can't go wrong dining here.

There are no better views in all of Philadelphia of the river, 30th street's lit up train station and skyline. Magnificent. Andrew did had perfect job waiting on us, attentive but not... More

I have walked by this restaurant for years and also thought about going, but when I friend suggested we go here because she had just moved nearby, I'm glad we did. After a longish walk through the Philadelphia Design Center building, we finally arrived at the restaurant. We had a great table by the window where we had wonderful views... More

This year we decided to dine out. I picked St. Tropez because it was near my office and my clients have always liked it. On Thanksgiving we liked the relaxed and upbeat atmosphere and, of course, the food. It was a sumptuous buffet and one of the best meals I have had in a long time.

Stopped in for a lunch while between meetings on a business trip. Service was excellent and the staff friendly. Food was very good, but not great. My omelet was a bit overcooked. Regardless, happy to recommend and would go back.

First time visit - - easy to obtain online reservation. Its a little bit tricky locating Bistro St. Tropez (BST) - - even when you arrive at the address you have to invoke your faith and trust entering the design center. early evening, of course, the center is void of people except for the concierge. BST resides on the 4th... More
