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 now accepted for outdoor tables.

    Pretty disappointing trip. Usually love Parc, but this time was underwhelming. We were sat in the far corner, facing the door to the dish pit. Pretty lackluster seating for a half empty restaurant at 6:30 on a Tuesday lol. The most disappointing part was the Steak frites, though. Was ordered Medium, came out beyond rare and cold. Hangar steak is not typically a cut I want to enjoy rare. My sister and I each only took one bite. Sadly, we were never asked if we were enjoying it, not even when our server was clearing our plates and could see the full steaks were left. At that point, it was too late to bother ordering anything else, anyways. Sidecar is one of the best I've had in awhile, though!

    Excellent as usual. I decided to try the roasted salmon this time instead of what I usually get. It was a really excellent choice. I did get the usual salad vert and oysters. Parc is the only place I know of where one can get tart tatin outside of France. They also do authentic baguettes. It feels very French, especially around the end of year holidays and Fete Nationale ("Bastille Day").

    I gave specific instructions about my dish. Each instruction was disregarded and the opposite was done. The manager hovered and tried to be helpful, but each thing he tried was too late, as I had time constraints and didn't want to be late. Someone brought the wrong lemon butter sauce and I used it, then manager brought the right sauce. Too late! Every part of the meal I had instructed A, B, and C. None of this was done. I told manager I'm sure it will be fine next time. But really, at the inflated price of this meal (from $18 pre-inflation to $32 now plus tax and tip) I will not be able to justify coming back and I often go to Philadelphia and it was always a treat to come to Parc. I even forgot to ask for a souvenir coaster which I like as a memento and an advertisement also for my visitors.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary by treating ourselves to the amazing dining experience at Parc! For us, this is definitely a special occasion restaurant. We drove two hours to dine here and the experience didn’t disappoint! The drinks, the food and the service - all excellent! Highlights were the tomato tarte, warm shrimp salad, steak frites and the house cocktails. Already planning our return trip!

    The reservationist was extremely professional, and graciously adjusted our reservation time. The restaurant is just lovely; we were there right after returning from Paris and the flavor rang very true! The Romario cocktail was delicious. The cheese board remains our favorite in the city! The escargot, boeuf borgiugnon and trout almandine are always delicious. And the servers were attentive and friendly. We’ve enjoyed this restaurant for so many years, and it never disappoints!

    Charming bistro. Very busy even on a Tuesday night. My husband and I both ordered the Moules Frites for our entrees. Generous portions and our server replaced the bowl for our shells with a second one when the first ones started to get full. My Salade Vertes was fresh and lightly dressed with a delicious vingarette dressing. My husband liked the French Onion Soup. The apple tart filling was tasty but the puff pastry was tough. It was conveniently located, just a few blocks from the Sofitel, and we would definitely return for another meal in the future.

    Parc is an excellent restaurant. Maybe it was because it was a Monday, but this recent visits was sadly terrible. We had reservations for the 25th birthday for my daughter, a party of Four. We are place next to the register where servers place orders and bring out food. Busy and distracting when there were several suitable tables available at that time of the day. It took 45 minutes for the food to arrive. By the time food was served we had filled up on the bread and drinks. We were done. The server was aloof and indifferent. I was so disgusted I told him to keep the birthday cake and candle. Parc Is an important restaurant for Philadelphia and Rittenhouse Square. I want it to continue to succeed. It may be time to revisit systems and server hiring and training.

    Prices high for amount of food. I paid $36 for 5 scallops. No accompaniments. Skipped drinks due to cost. Food was delish. Amazing bread. Sat outside so some noise. Homeless man approached 2 tables for total of 10 minutes and no one from the restaurant urged him to move on.

    We’ve been meaning to get to Parc for years and finally made a reservation for when family was visiting from Florida. Disappointing. Service was slow. Appetizers were forgotten and by the time they came out everyone else had finished so we just sent them back. Main courses came out a couple at a time and two were wrong. Ingredients used - like olives on one dish - were not disclosed on menu.

    Everything was just... Okay. Not worth the price, honestly. I hate to say that because the servers were kind and attentive, and the food was good. It's just not something that you couldn't make yourself with a bit of effort. I ordered the moelleux au chocolat for dessert, and I didn't enjoy it. It tasted like a wet microwave brownie. Not a bad place to grab dinner though. The chardonnay was exquisite! They have an impressive list of wine & spirits.

    We were able to get a last-minute outdoor seating reservation. The little eating cabins were very roomy and totally protected us from the downpour that started halfway through lunch. Food and drinks were delicious and they even brought our profiteroles out with candles for the birthdays we were celebrating. Highly recommend!

    Food is fabulous. Pasta primavera is a delicious vegetarian option. Steaks are well prepared and the warm shrimp salad is a nice option. Don't miss the creme brûlée or the profiteroles. This is our go-to option in Philly. The bread basket is over the top. We always eat outside. Inside is very "energetic." On our most recent visit 9/22/22 no patrons wore masks FYI.

    We went to Parc to celebrate our anniversary. We were seated at a small table by the window. The restaurant was very full and very loud, but the service never felt inattentive, nor rushed. Between the two of us, we had 3 cocktails, a glass of wine, two appetizers, two entrees, one side, and two desserts. There was also complimentary bread service and they brought us a little plate of macarons at the end to acknowledge our special occasion. Total bill was about $200 pre-tip, which we thought was reasonable for the quality and quantity of food and drink that we ordered. The tomato tarte was fantastic. The charcuterie board was the weakest part of the meal. Husband ordered the steak fries and I got the duck breast, and added a side of pommes puree. Both entrees were beautifully prepared and the pommes puree was delicious and was a perfect accompaniment to the duck. I can't comment on dessert yet because we got it to go since we were so full! Overall a great experience and I would definitely return

    Anthony served us brilliantly. He brought me a Pernod just the way I like it. Then he found a bottle of Merlot that was supposedly sold out. Then he always came to our table only when we needed him and not too often. The food was good as always but I want to highlight the tomato salad. The tomatoes were not the usual tasteless American ones, but ones full of aroma and flavor. What a pleasant surprise that was! The 4 of us left the restaurant with a big smile on our faces!
