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 now accepted for outdoor tables.

    We had a reservation for indoor seating at 5:00 pm on a Thursday before the attending a Philadelphia Orchestra concert. It was our first visit to Parc. The reservation was made a week in advance, and we were exactly on time. Parc is very large, and there were many vacant tables at that hour. We were sent to the relatively dark back room, to a table just outside a busy, noisy food-preparation area (evidently a kitchen). We asked to be reseated. We were shown to a table about 15 feet from the first one, directly across from a smaller but still busy service area where staff accessed tableware to reset tables. On the other side was a window completely covered by a dingy lace curtain that could not be opened. Again we asked to be reseated. We were finally shown to a table in the bright, airy front dining room, fully open to a glorious spring afternoon and facing Rittenhouse Square. It was still less than half full. We are white and elderly (age 70, no canes or walkers). We were appropriately dressed for the restaurant. We can only conclude that our age made us undesirable customers in the eyes of the particular young man on the reception desk. I write to caution Open Table users (especially older people) that they should consider including a specific note about seating preference when they reserve at Parc.

    We met with friends and had a wonderful dining experience at Parc. We ate in a booth outdoors. Service was prompt. Our waiter Edwin was informative. Salmon tartare & trout were prepared perfectly. We had a wonderful evening. Dana the hostess was attentive to our needs.

    Rosario (Mike) was a great server. Attentive but not intrusive. My friend and I meet in Philly several times a year (she’s from MD and I’m from NYC). We always book a table at Parc. Great location, can walk from 30th Street station. Food and wine are great, nice price point.

    This place is one of my favorites in Philadelphia. The food is amazing as well as the wine menu and cocktails. It is great to celebrate a special occasion or for casual dining. I highly recommend the escargots, petit plateau, oysters, mussels frites (best french fries ever).

    Delicious food, excellent service—Caitlin was our server and she was attentive without being intrusive, professional, and on top of it all—always a great experience here. Have been going since it opened and it’s by far our favorite restaurant in Philadelphia. And we love Pastis in NYC, which is Parc’s twin!

    The chicken curry sandwich was okay! Not anything to rave about. The salad served with the sandwich was again average. The fries were okay ! Chick filet’s are honestly better! Your fries are really thin and expensive!

    I enjoyed lunch outdoors with a friend from out- of-town on a beautiful, but windy, afternoon. As usual the service was impeccable; actually even more gracious than usual, if that’s possible! The warm shrimp salad was so incredibly tasty- I’d never tried it before and it will be my new go-to. Love Parc!

    While I enjoyed the evening sitting outside, I felt that the price of the meal did not reflect 5 star dining. It was good…timely, good temperature and fresh, I thought it was too pricey for what you received.
