This was my second time dining at Bistro 7. The first time, in the winter, I liked it. The second time, in the summer, I loved it. The food was very interesting, very creative, and very good. The fried foods like soft shell crab and...More

That’s how I felt after dinner - disappointed. The descriptions of the small plates sounded so much better than the actual product. There wasn’t a moment when anyone said, Wow – I can’t wait to try the next selection. The Roasted Bone Marrow was overpowered...More

Bistro 7 is smack in the middle of busy/fun/crazy "Old City" Philadelphia, but it feels far removed from the frat-bro popped collars of the neighborhood. And that's a good thing. A small BYOB big on flavor, the menu delivered. We happened to attend during restaurant...More
