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.

Cute restaurant on a slightly pricey side. Though given the location and decor, I can get by with the price. Food is pretty decent

I felt like I was in Paris at a bistro. The ambience, lighting, service, food were all outstanding. I would return many times if I lived in the area. Highly recommend to anyone wanting great food, atmosphere, and service.

We love PARC, but the revisions with COVID dining have caused the service and food to suffer. It'll be a while before we go back.

Our prior experience at Parc was outstanding.
While it was nice that there was so much outdoor dining, we chose to dine indoors when we were told they couldn’t put up the umbrellas. Big mistake. We were seated back to back with other diners. Though there was plexiglass between us, that was inadequate. Just as disconcerting, the waitstaff came too close. One waiter in particular was within an inch or less and standing over my son. I would not recommend Parc during COVID because the staff seems either improperly trained or cavalier about respecting people’s personal space.
The lemon financier tart was delicious, as were the smoked salmon dishes, but the quiche was unremarkable.

The quality of the food is simply out of this world. Although my favorite is brunch, all their menus have some of the highest quality food outside that of Paris. Perfectly cooked everything, incredible service, beautiful aesthetics, etc.

The food was incredible as always! Unfortunately, We made a 7:45 reservation, and had to wait until 8:30 for our table. The main hostess was incredible rude and we could tell they accepted far more reservations than they could handle. Ordinarily it would have been a great night to pass some time at the bar.

Never made it to our reservation. We arrived at the designated time but it took almost 45 minutes for our table to be ready so I had to unfortunately not dine here.

The beautiful ambiance of Parc made our meal with an old friend from out-of-town very special. We sat indoors, near the windows, socially distanced from other diners, and found it quiet and charming, and more personal than outdoors in the street. The food was delicious, as always, although the service by masked waiters was impersonal.

First time at parc— we came for brunch! Our server was great. It was so busy, and we only waited about 5 mins for our table. Food was amazing— warm shrimp salad was phenomenal. Wish the coffee was a little warmer but otherwise can’t wait to come back for more brunches!

Another memorable Saturday evening and dinner at Parc. The service, atmosphere, food and wine are consistently exceptional at Philadelphia's best all around restaurant. Manager David Sherman, and the other management staff members, as well servers Angelo, Talbert, Olivia and Tamara excel at customer service and always make our meals truly wonderful experiences. Parc is also an exceptional value and date restaurant located with a great view of Rittenhouse Square. While we are Center City residents, Parc is certainly worth the drive into the city for those suburban and Jersey folks looking for a great dinning and COVID safe experience. We recently dinned there for brunch with a couple from South Jersey and they could not stop raving about their meal and experience. Thank you again to Parc!

I have dinned at Parc at least 15 times and the service is usually decently good, but tonight I was sad to have experienced a very rude server who was clearly only being rude to our table and being kind to others. Based on the reputation of Parc, I will return but be sure not to have this server.

In COVID-19 times, my husband and I asked for a table in the street and the service was great. However, between the first and second plate we waited for 20 minutes long... that wasn't a good moment. Food is tasty and hi quality. I recommend Cafe Parc to finish your meal!
