I'm happy to say that this place has really good food and it's very close to my hotel. The area near this restaurant is phenomenal—lots of history and the best garden (Master of Nets "Wang Shi Yuan"). When I left Soochow in 2014, I felt like the quality had gone downhill. I'm so happy to say it's right back up... More

The food is very good - I had the beef tenderloin. I'm not sure it's a French restaurant though. The menu has burgers, quesadillas, pizza, and calzones.

I chose to have dinner at this restaurant following the good reviews and it didn´t disappoint. Decor is nice and elegant, the service is good and friendly and the food is just divine. Very good selection of french cuisine and a very decent wine list, although the price is quite high. Be prepared for a high bill but its totally... More

We had lunch at Bistronomy and it was exceptional. The service by chinese standards was great and the food even better. They had a really good wine list. The ambience of this place completes a great eating out experience in China. Will def return.

Went there based on all the good reviews, but was disappointed. Decor and service is good, but food quality (particularly for the price) is quite disappointing. I would recommend Mai Tian -- in the same food category.

Service is above standard in China, food was excellent. Well-prepared steak, lovely sauce and veggies. Good wine selection. Prices acceptable. French manager works hard for guests. Will return when back in Suzhou.

After seeing the high ratings on Trip Advisor my husband (who is French) and I were compelled to try Bistronomy. First of all - we followed the map on Trip Advisor, which brought us to the wrong end of the street (make sure you remove the "No." in front of the address, and are watching the direction of the numbers)....
