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.

Juliette was wonderful. She was so attentive and gave great service. It was my friends birthday and the service was wonderful. Always a great time at Parc and today for outdoor dining in COVID- we truly had a wonderful time.

Its my favorite place to eat! I always get the escargot and its always cooked to perfecyion (I'd bathe in the sauce if they gave me enough lol) covid procedures made me feel safe since I'm pretty terrified about going out in public since the onset of the pandemic. Our waiter was a doll and made us feel very safe andafe sure we were happy with everything and to top off my favorite meal he gave me free macaroons to take home. It was a wonderful way to spend the day.

Food was great, service was fantastic. I just wish the escargot tasted like more than the delicious butter it’s in.

Wonderful service. Perfect table overlooking the park. Great people watching and not too close to other diners. Belated Birthday celebration and wonderful to dine out again.

The disappointing part was the entrees were not up to par.
My husband’s steak was a bit tough/dry on the outside, even though he ordered it medium rare. My scallops arrived lukewarm and a bit spongy. I only ate 2 out of 4 as they just weren’t very tasty. We did not speak up nor send anything back. We were trying to reduce interactions with the waitstaff for health safety and we figured the decline in quality was perhaps due to the stress of the pandemic. Still, for a fairly pricy meal, the entrees were not like you’d expect at a Starr restaurant.. Our Manhattan cocktails (up) were decent but we didn’t get a cherry! Appetizers and desserts were excellent!!

Talbert and Danielle are exemplary servers, always friendly and attentive. Parc successfully recreates the atmosphere of Paris at Rittenhouse Square, and the food always makes the visit memorable. Can't wait to return.

Went to Parc for dinner and the food was wonderful. We got the house special Lobster Frites, shrimp salad and their cheeseburger. Ended it with the amazing mango/passion sorbet. Our server was attentive, prompt, and informative. The ambience was nice as we got an outdoor seat right across from the park; but the speeding cars passing by was the only negative remark, which of course has nothing to do with the restaurant. Would definitely go back!

Service was great. It started to rain but we were hanging in anyway. After everyone else jumped ship out server brought us an umbrella. The rain stopped shortly and we had our meal.
The shrimp cocktail is a big disappointment, 6 shrimp for 22 seems expensive.
But everything else was great with my and my guest food.

We have never had so much as a bad dish, let alone a bad meal at Parc. With Covid, dining is available only outdoors, so the interior vibe is missing, but the service and food remains excellent. well worth a trip to Rittenhouse Square (even with the overpriced parking lots).

Open Table erroneously allowed for our 10 pm reservation even though they close at 10, but they still took us. That was good. Waiter was annoyed. We were starving so we ate quickly and tipped well anyway. But this is important to know.
