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.

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

Too loud! The music should have been lower and with the crowded restaurant we had a very difficult time hearing each other!

The seafood tower was disappointing because the crab legs were so thin that the meat wouldn’t come out and they gave us an empty lobster shell. Our waitress also seemed to forget about us for quite a while. But the shrimp salad and pasta were amazing!

As always, the food was excellent. Our server did reach across one of us to place a drink on the table. He could have gone to the other side of the table and placed it.
As usual, the noise level was on the high side.

Everything was delicious - from the cocktails, to the appetizers and entrees. Our server was excellent - offering great menu recommendations when asked. I have mixed feelings about the outside covered seating (across from the park) because they limit the park views - very small complaint. Beautiful night - food and service is consistently good!

We love Parc restaurant and go there when we are in town! I prefer the outdoor seating on the tan and rust chairs… wasn’t loving the white sectioned off area… not as cute. Didn’t complain or change seats because we love the place❤️

Great location on verdant Rittenhouse Square. Authentic French decor. Beautiful restaurant and restrooms. Bread assortment superb. Excellent escargot. Didn't expect sardines to come in can. Sea bass delicious and cooked to perfection. Scallops underwhelming. Good drinks. Overall, we had a lovely dining experience.

I was excited for this experience. i had heard good things about the restaurant. First time out with my husband and was seated by the bus station where dishes crashed constantly. There were many open tables. I do not know why we were seated at the worst seat in-the house. The food did not over compensate

I had a great dining experience at Parc. A friend recommended it to my husband and me for dinner while we were visiting from out of town. To start, the bread was dynamite--especially the cranberry nut bread! I also really enjoyed the Romarin cocktail (grapefruit and elderflower, wow!!). I had the steak frites; my steak was perfectly cooked, and the fries were delicious. My husband had the pasta jardinière; he claims it was "too creamy," but he's a pasta perfectionist--I thought it was very tasty. The décor is tasteful and well on theme, and I thought the restrooms were quaint. Side note: a huge thunderstorm rolled through just as we were getting ready to leave (minutes before the restaurant closed); the staff was kind enough to let us stay seated inside at our tables well after closing time to wait out the storm. All in all, a great restaurant experience that I would highly recommend.
