Being no stranger to Philadelphia's
wining and dining circuit, Bistro St. Tropez is my favorite "go to" place whenever I want a gorgeously hip place to savor healthy, delicious food (presented beautifully) and sip luscious, reasonably priced French wines -- all in the company of good friends and a professional restaurateur.
This European style bistro is unique. It not only has breath taking views of Philadelphia's Schuylkill River, its roadways and bridges, and the Thirtieth Street Station, but is conducive to conversation! In addition to ambience, the kitchen has the constant attention and oversight of Culinire de Nice graduate Chef Patrice Rames who carefully selects, purchases, handles, cooks, arranges and presents his food hygenically, artistically and passionately. Behind the scenes, in his hygenic and well equipped kitchen, Chef Rames treats his staff with professionalism and kindness, providing traditional training and experience to lucky "next generation student chefs" from local culinary institutions.
The menu is healthy and modestly priced, making it perfect for locals who not only dine out regularly, but who sometimes need overflow space for entertaining. When strolling along the Schuylkill River walk, surface on Market Street to find the entrance to this hidden gem. It's only fair that visitors experience this bistro as well and add this to their list of Philadelphia treasures. The entrance near to Walnut and 24th Streets is a stone's throw from the Thirtieth Street Station and makes a great stop off point for weary travelers.

The food was really excellent. I had
the 3 course dinner which started with Four Mushroom soup. The soup was tasty and had, as I prefer, pieces of mushroom. I really hate it when mushroom soup comes out as if it had spent a minute in the blender! My main course was hanger steak with lentils. This is the only time I had hanger steak that was not even a little tough. It came with delicious bordelaise sauce. The lentils were small beans with cubes of meat and a delicious sauce. My wife had the Rack of Lamb and it came rare as ordered as was my steak. She pronounced it heavenly. We shared my dessert which was a flake-pastry with vanilla ice cream and strawberries. Yum!
All in all, this was a great night for dining. We’ll surely be back.
Excellent place for business lunch. Went for lunch and was quite impressed. the menu had a nice selection at great prices of salads,omelettes and sandwiches with also a speciality section with halibut, striped bass, risotto with parmesan chicken and others choices that I don't remember right now but I know that can't wait to go back to try them.
Loved it !.
Went for restaurant week and we had a very nice meal . The menu choices were very interesting with great value.
Service was professional without being stuffy! Will go back.
Great French restaurant.
Excellent food. Service was friendly and the view overlooking the river and the museum is fantastic. They have a nice selection on their menu but I highly recommend their 28dollars three course selected by the chef. Great value.
