Nice Thanksgiving Dinner

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.

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.

Restaurant week finally got me to Bistro St Tropez and our dinner was wonderful in every way. The menu is fantastic, especially the escargot appetizer and scallop entree. 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

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

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
