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.

**A note from the restaurant**
Outside seating is on a first come, first serve basis.

Parc is a large, lively restaurant with quaint French bistro charm. I went for Sunday brunch and it was quite crowded and noisy but we still enjoyed our meal immensely. The breakfast options were nothing special but food was good and service was attentive. I will be going back.

Waiter was not on par as usual. Eggs Benedict was inedible- the jam was very dry and couldn’t be eaten and the egg was over cooked

I took my family for Sunday brunch at Parc since my first experience there was superb. However, this time around, our appetizers arrived with our entrées and our entrées and lattes were cold. My sister asked for her plate to be heated and they brought hers 20 minutes afterwards and with the incorrect ingredients. We were very disappointed.

We enjoy Parc. The food is consistently good and the service is also generally good. We didn't like that they were ready to immediately remove each individual plate as each of us completed our appetizer and then our entrée. It's a way of rushing the group through the meal and it was uncomfortable. You don't want to sit and eat while the other three people at your table are sitting without plates in front of them. I was surprised and they really should wait until all parties have finished.

Great place, great meal, Adam (server) was awesome, especially to my niece as she didn't like the chicken sandwich as it came out, so he bought her her dessert...he wanted her to enjoy her meal...thought that was a class act...definitely will be returning there.

The waiter checked with us about every 15 minutes to ask if we wanted the check. Clearly not the place to go if you want to sit beyond an hour.

Delicious food and a special atmosphere. The crowd was a little less polished than I would’ve expected, but didn’t detract from the overall experience. Can’t wait to go back and try more off of the extensive menu!

Very nicely accommodating since I arrived late to the reservation. Food was good, but our server was weirdly chauvinistic. I'm guessing he thought we seemed younger than we were, because the way he talked to me, specifically, seemed condescending. Other than that, I like Parc when I am able to go.

Had breakfast there the other day and it was delicious. Our servers were very attentive - maybe a bit over attentive as they kept trying to clear one of our diners' place even though she was still eating. It was not busy and maybe they were trying to look busy. Overall, a great place to eat. The classical music was nice, but they were playing it very loud so we had to almost shout at each other. Why do restaurants to that?
I don't think most people go out to dine for the music.

Stopped in for a little breakfast and was not disappointed. Ordered the avacado toast and it was so delish. Perfectly seasoned and the eggs just the right level of runny for that sort of dish. Front of house was very attentive and kept my table clean and drinks topped off whenever it needed it.

Just visited for my boyfriend’s birthday, we had an incredible time. The restaurant can be a bit loud , but what restaurant in center city isn’t. I have been to parc several times for brunch/ lunch and always enjoyed it. For dinner I’d highly recommend the escargot, duck and sea bass. Our service was impeccable and recommendations were spot on. Parc will always be in my top 5.

Servers were fairly pushy when we asked a single question about wine they were trying to upsell us to a very expensive bottle of wine. The question we had was very basic and the server became pushy and we had to ask her to give us time to decide to get her to leave the table. We also had a pretty poor location for a table considering we made an early night reservation we were stuck between two large parties. There were other open tables in more quiet locations but we were sat in between the large parties which was noisy and felt rushed to leave so they could have the table back.

Food was good, croque madame is always a good choice. If they say you're going to table 54 ask for a different table. It's in a corner and I basically touching someone at another table because of the spacing. Liubov was the server she was funny and attentive.

I ordered my usual curry chicken salad sandwich without the bread. It was served on top of greens as usual. But I was surprised that the portion on the plate was almost half as large as it always has been. When I mentioned it to someone else who eats there regularly they told me they had the same experience with their warm chicken salad the same week. A much smaller portion
