A word from Parc
Stephen Starr's stylish addition to Rittenhouse Square pays tribute to French cafe culture, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, ideal for a quick bite or a leisurely meal. Parc recalls the chic brasseries of Paris, serving classic French fare in a charming space. Red leather banquettes topped with frosted glass provide a sense of intimacy. Details such as well-worn wooden chairs, vintage framed paintings and photos and antique brass fixtures transport guests across the Atlantic. French doors spill onto a sidewalk terrace covered by a dark red awning perfect for dining "en plein air." Reservations are not accepted for outdoor tables.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I had flown in from SF and was meeting an old friend for dinner. He picked Parc, which was perfect. The server was cheerful and greeted me warmly. The moules frites were a nice starter and the trout amandine was what you want in a Classic French preparation. Sitting outside on a summer evening rounded out the experience."

  • "My first time in Philly, visiting my girlfriend who just started Med School... Parc was recommended and was definitely the highlight of our morning; great food, wonderful ambiance and we got a great table."

  • "Parc is my "go to" place for when I am meeting a friend, hosting out-of-town guests, or just feeling the need to be pampered with delightful food. The wine is great, and I love being able to tell guests, "whatever you order, you won't be disappointed." Unfortunately for me, I am unable to eat the amazing bread, however, I do know how delicious it is, and often stop by to pick up a loaf to take as a present when we go to someone's home for brunch or dinner."

  • "This is my second time dining at Parc. It was as amazing this time as it was last time we were here. We ordered the seafood tower and it was extremely fresh and everything was delicious. The amount of food on the tower would have been enough for dinner- it was that large. I had the chicken and my husband had the short rib special. Both were out of this world. This remains one of my favorite restaurants in Philly."

  • "I felt that I was back in Paris. The indoor setting is like being in Paris. We chose to eat indoors but outdoors also seem that it would have been pleasant. There were four of us and we all felt that the food was excellent. Would recommend this restaurant to any one for just a glass of wine to a full dinner."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed a business dinner at Parc earlier this week. The large windows were flung wide to catch a delightful evening breeze across Rittenhouse Square, which only served to make our dinner feel even more like one on a Paris sidewalk cafe. The pommes frites were excellent, as was my peppercorn steak marinated in a delectable sauce. My dinner companions enjoyed the scallops and a fish selection as well. Nice wine selection. I think our server struggled a bit to keep up with his workload, but that didn't mar an overall delightful dinner. Will return to Parc again."

  • "Would have been another perfect brunch except for the rude and unhelpful hostess. Arrived on time for our reservation, after not being seated for 20 minutes (with no apologies or explanation) and seeing tables open everywhere, the hostess was still rude and dismissive even though our entire party of 4 had been waiting for our reservation. The waitress and food/drinks were amazing, its a shame the front of the house can tarnish an otherwise fantastic experience."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "We enjoyed our first visit to Parc. Sparkling cocktails were very classy and good. You must get the breakfast pastry basket if you go for brunch - best part of the meal - enjoy the lemon curd and raspberry spread with the pastries - amazing. Can't wait to go back. My husband said he won't be able to go to Philly for the weekend and not have brunch at Parc!"

  • "We had a wonderful brunch at Parc. The service was excellent and the food as well. It was a beautiful day. I did order flowers to be delivered at the table for our anniversary and they arrived on time and were very nice. We asked if we could leave the arrangement for a little while we walked and then pick them up. We were told it is not a problem. Unfortunately, when we returned, the change in shifts resulting in perfectly good flowers being thrown away. Needless to say we were bummed and my wife was without her anniversary flowers to bring home. Again, the brunch was great. It was a shame it ended on a down note."

  • "Party of 5 for a special occasion on a Friday night in summer. Seated promptly, service a bit slow initially but the food and cocktails were top notch. Yummy !!"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "I enjoyed a great Friday night dinner with a friend. I'm vegan, she is not. The bread offered was delicious, especially the berry and nut option, it was fresh and exploding with fruit. The specialty cocktail list offered a number of vegan options. The Romania balanced the vodka and grapefruit masterfully. There were only three vegan options for entrees, soup and salads. I had the gazpacho and totmato salad with a side of garlic spinach. Excellent gazpacho!!! Mixing the spinach with the tomato salad was so delicious I brought home left overs, sheepishly, and had the remainder for breakfast and dinner. I will return for the tomato salad and side of spinach."

  • "I was able to reserve a table for a last minute business meeting. Food, service and ambiance made for a fantastic meeting. Thank you to the staff for another great meeting at PARC."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "The restaurant is very charming with views of Rittenhouse Square and vibrant sidewalk traffic. The service is excellent but the food is quite ordinary and is served too quickly almost like a Diner. However in general it is a fun urban dining experience and will not disappoint most diners."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Had a great dinner sitting outside on a beautiful night! Waiter was very knowledgable and each of us enjoyed our dinners very much."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Just had yet another great meal at Parc, which has quickly become our Center City favorite. (Warm shrimp salad for lunch -- just fabulous). Out-of-town friends just love Parc too, and what's not to like? ... Beautiful setting, wonderful food, perfect location. While our neighborhood has always been great, Parc makes it that much better."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Too cheap to fly to Paris to partake in people watching on the boulevards? Just hop on down to Parc and you can skip the check-in lines and lost luggage hassles. You may want to bring your ear plugs, however, as the interior is very noisy with a crowd. Apart from that, check out the decor and enjoy the food, just as if you were transplanted to that land where people sit endlessly, nourished by the sight of passing throngs and a small verre de vin."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "I've been fortunate in being able to dine at numerous, great restaurants in Philly but Parc is my favorite. I always buy a loaf of their signature berry and walnut bread when I dine at Parc - its insanely good in the morning with a cup of La Colombe coffee. Interesting place for people watching as well"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Service was slow and and inattentive. Had to ask for items several times. Food quality has slipped since the last time I was there. The outdoor setting was the high point of this visit."

  • "Tghey treated us great even though we were a t=party of 5 dining at 8 pm, and two of our group did notshow until 9 pm. Never felt rushed by them and they never seemed irritated at our late start. Delicious food (we had foi gras, tomato tartine, and oysters, then duck, scallops, and skate entrees. All delicious."

  • "We go to Parc as often as possible. You can always count on a great meal with excellent service. I do not live in the city so I am not usually there late. I can only imagine that Parc would be a fun place to stop in for a late night snack."
