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.

My first time at Parc and I loved it. The service was both professional and friendly. The timing of the service of the food was perfect. And the food was excellent. We started with the tomato tart, and then had the quiche and the hamburger, finishing with the profiteroles. All excellent. Can't wait to go back.

A nice easy place to take out of town guests. Rittenhouse Square provides a nice background and after dinner stroll. The menu is easy to navigate for a table of 4 with varying dietary needs.

We had a reservation for 8:45 p.m. for outside seating. We were given an outside booth along Locust Street. We loved it. The temperature outside was comfortable ––in the low 80's. Our booth had two fans and a roof. It was completely open on the sidewalk side and partially open on the street side. It had soft overhead lighting in the form of a low-intensity illuminated globe. The service was excellent. A greeter delighted us by remembering us even though we had not dined there since the pandemic began over a year and a half ago. She signaled that she remembered us by recalling exactly what we had last ordered. We enjoyed the cuisine. I especially liked my tomato salad which had thin slabs of huge tomatoes each the size of the palm of my hand.

hosting staff were a bit rude in their attempts to organize the group waiting to check in

a lot of hustle and bustle and we were definitely a neglected table due to a large party nearby

great indoor atmosphere and we had a lovely time, food was great, but the vibe of “you should be lucky to eat here” was a little off-putting.

Started off well, took way to long to get our drinks and when we did Get them, they came in dribs and drabs. (Staggered) when we questioned the wait staff about the drinks (2 were mixed up) she was a bit sarcastic. As a bartender and a food business owner, I know the difference between an old fashion and a separate cocktail, she obviously did not. When the food arrived 2 of the 6 plates were unpalatable and the guests, at this point, did not feel comfortable sending it back. They did remove it from the bill and management came to speak to us but at this point it was a called evening. Someone even sent of a birthday dessert (no one asked and it was not our birthday) it was loud and hard to hear each other as well. Overall, we would recommend this to anyone nor will we return. A-shame, we heard so many good things and was hopeful before we had our meal.

For the price, the appetizer was very small and the steak was very fatty and charred on the outside. Parts were not edible. Drink refill was wrong as well. I will not be going back. Service was very slow and there was a long time between visits from staff.

I ordered the poached eggs with sausage. I liked the eggs and the sausage but the potatoes and the bread were just average. The location is wonderful and the restaurant looks very nice inside.

Took a long time for food to come out. No one came over to acknowledge that we waited for over 50 minutes for food to arrive. After I mentioned to server did he say a manager would come to speak with us. No one ever did. Disappointing
