French
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.

The meal was reasonably good. I ordered the escargot .It came like a soup with pieces of escargots in it. I have never seen it served like this. It looked and should be called escargot chowder. It certainly didn’t look French.

The food and experience is top drawer. But if you want to have a conversation it’s not easy. Very loud inside. The food is excellent. We’ve been twice this week visiting during a conference.

The small shareable items are great: tartare, chicken liver parfait, beet/carrot salad are favorites. Profiteroles are a perfect dessert for sharing. Great barista service and some gems in the wine selection. Great place for a group.

We went to lunch at Parc to celebrate by sister’s birthday. Had a wonderful waiter. I like that you can make reservations for lunch. Food was good as always. My sister did not want to draw attention to the fact that it was her birthday but our waiter must have heard - when we ordered a creme brûlée to share they brought it on a plate that said Happy Birthday and had a candle! Very nice touch. We go here often for family get togethers and it’s just so nice to be in the city, on Rittenhouse Square and people watch too!

Our visit was overall very good. However, for the second time our family of 5 has been seated at a table, that I feel was meant for 4. We felt very crowded. Also, I asked for a 'quiet table' and again for the second time we were seated in the very busy bar section. Parc is a vibrant fun place to eat, and we enjoy the energy and vibe, but being crowded and having to shout to be heard made the experience less than optimal. The food (especially the bread) was very good. The charcuterie board was wonderful. All our meals were enjoyed. The service was good considering that our server was VERY busy. We will return, but hope our concerns about seating will be addressed.

The food was great. We are at 5pm Sunday. Never before had entrees brought out at the same time as appetizers. The server seemed annoyed that I wanted each course brought out after we ate the previous one. Other than that it was a good experience

The ambiance of Parc makes you feel like you’re in France. The food is absolutely amazing and so true to French cuisine. The service never disappoints and your glass is never empty! A perfect place for a special occasion or date.

When I booked I mentioned we were in a date and I was given a lovely table by the window in a quiet corner of the restaurant, so perfect!!!! Our waiter was helpful with my gluten free/Celiac restrictions and the food was (as always) phenomenal!!!!

As always, Parc hits it out of the park for brunch. While it is a little noisy during brunch, the food and service is always excellent. You truly feel like you're in a Parisian brasserie.

This was my second time celebrating a special event. Both times the wait staff took it upon themselves to deliver a dessert for free to celebrate. One was sorbet with a full macaroon on top with a lit sparkler, and this time was four tiny macaroons with a single candle and ‘Happy Anniversary’ written in chocolate. The service is always impeccable. It was a Saturday night so we tried the Lobster Frites (the special) plus the Steak Au Poiuvre and lobster bisque. Everything was quite tasty though the lobster was a tiny bit chewier than I expected for the price. The restaurant also honored my special request for a seat near a window or in a corner by asking us to wait five minutes while they prepared a table for us that was in fact right next to a window and in a corner. Our waitress was personable and helpful.

Everything was spot-on -- service, ambience, and most of all, the food. Escargot, country pate, super fresh oysters, lamb shank, and duck. Don't miss the apple cider sorbet.

We go here pretty often. While always a good experience, our waiter this time was especially capable - attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend the steak au poivre, one of their signature entrees. With a carafe of house red it was an excellent meal.

My wife and I dined here for our 28th wedding anniversary yesterday. The service was outstanding, best ever. The food was all delicious and we really enjoyed our evening. The noise level was a little high but manageable for where we were seated. We look forward to dining here again in the future.

I really love Parc, one of my favorite restaurants in Philly. Last Friday was finally cold after a very hot Summer and I was dreaming with the onion soup, which was kind of disappointing, very watery. It does not compromise my recommendation though.
