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.

The food was great as always. We were in the area an hour early and planned to hang around, but they were able to seat us outside when we checked in rather than have us wait. We were celebrating a birthday and they brought a complimentary dessert out to surprise my friend. Such a great location with great food and an awesome atmosphere.

This turned out to be a very disappointing experience, specially after hearing so much about this restaurant.
The service was erratic, the wrong dishes were delivered to each of both dinners, the sound level was extremely high, very very noisy.
The food was nothing special. I have enjoyed steak and frites much better in other places.
Not a place I want to return to.

Delicious meal as always. Ate outside in the cute and innovative chalets, individual open air dining areas with glass between each one. Very nice, private outside dining. They also have the traditional outside and inside dining as well. I had the avocado toast, which was delicious and my husband had an omelet which also was delicious. Service was excellent, would highly recommend. You feel like you are in Paris not in Philadelphia. We love this restaurant.

Please be aware that the salt levels in most dishes is quite high. I wish they would tone down the salt.

We arrived 30 minutes ahead of our reservation, hoping to nab an outdoor table. We were told that we'd need to wait unless we were willing to sit inside. We waited at the park and then returned and were seated in a 'chalet.' We were grateful to be outside, but our wait person took close to 20 minutes to bring us our menus and water and, basically, was hard to pin down &/or absent throughout most of our meal. My husband's trout was SO salty that it was almost inedible, but since we could not find our waitperson and he was hungry, he went ahead and ate it, while drinking TONS of water to cut the salt. My Nicoise salad was fine, but not very special (especially with canned rather than seared tuna). Coffee was watery and had to be returned for a cappucino but, of course, that took close to 15 minutes to accomplish too. Overall, a rather disappointing meal and I had left a message in our reservation that we were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary which was also not acknowledged at all!!

Our go to place when we visit Philadelphia. We were first seated at a table next to the bar with people as the bar literally in our lap. Upon request they graciously moved us to a new table away from the bar which was perfect. Food is always great. The tuna carpaccio was outstanding as was the steak frites.

We dined in a group of four on a Saturday evening in June. While we have always enjoyed Parc, in part because of the pandemic we had not visited in 3 years. So we were excited to go, and maybe a little worried that some of the magic might be missing. We did not need to worry. Everything was excellent. We were greeted warmly, seated immediately and served attentively. The bread is as good as ever. For appetizers we had the mushroom tart, the sardines, the salmon tartare , and the shrimp cocktail. All were good, but the shrimp cocktail was the standout here. I don’t know where they get the shrimp from, but they are always delicious. For mains we had the skirt steak, the beef Bourgignon, and the steak au poivre. We were in the mood for beef. All were excellent. For dessert we had the apple tartine with ice cream. We also had a nice burgundy red wine. It was great to be out. The restaurant was busy. And people seemed… happy. Highly recommended.

My daughter’s best friend came to visit and we had the seafood plateau which was DIVINE but left little room for the rest of our lunch which was delicious but packed away. We were seated inside but at an open window. Our waitress was lovely and extremely knowledgeable and helpful. A lovely late morning.

We had reservations and were seated quickly. Our waiter came once and asked about drinks , and shortly after served them to us. Then we waited quite a while for him to take our order. The food was amazing and they sent macaroons as a surprise for our 38th Anniversary. That was very appreciated!
