Warm Shrimp Salad
Lemon beurre blanc, avocado
Haricots verts, lemon brown butter
Arrived on my wife birthday, table of 4.
Waiter asked which water we would like, we asked for a bottle of each, he cane back and told us the bar was backed up and we would have to wait a while (waited 20 minutes for water). Waiter forgot to take our drink order so I had to call him over to order drinks that arrived some 30 minutes after ordering them.
The bread was great but we only received a teaspoon of butter for a table of four.
Appetizers were served quickly, Tuna app was salted in one part but not all over. Mushroom Tart had a wonderful flavor but the crust was like a biscuit crumb base, obviously pre-cooked and dry. Snails were great the jelly on the pate overpowered a weak flavored chicken mousse.
Main courses were prompt . Beef Burgundy was truly classic and wonderful. Roasted Salmon was dry and lacked flavor. Steak Frite meat was nicely cooked but the fries were of the frozen variety. Spaghetti was adequate.
Dessert: Melted Chocolate was flavorful, could have looked better if not served in a ramekin. Creme Brulee very average lacked any flavor of vanilla and somewhat bland.
Apple Tartatain was disappointing. pastry was chewy and over cooked, apples on top were dry.
The Coffee was luke warm and tasted terrible. We just left it.
We loved our waiter David, and Our Host ,Christopher made sure we had the perfect table!!
We love Parc. Love the atmosphere - which my daughter, who lived in Paris, tells me is pretty authentic. Love the food, which is a fair value considering what other places charge for inferior vittles. Love the bathrooms, even! This was fourth or fifth visit. Mild criticisms: despite reservation, we were initially offered a table in an unpleasant location (swiftly and pleasantly changed at my request). It was very loud. And - this is a weird thing I have noticed before - the bread basket gets whisked away near the end of the meal, without a word. Especially weird last night as there was quite a bit left and my son was still eating it. And we would gladly have taken the leftovers rather than have them go in the trash.
Parc is ever our favorite.
The front desk staff is so unfriendly and full of attitude that it is difficult to enjoy anything else.
I enjoy sitting outside, it has a French cafe atmosphere, and there is lots of choice on the menu. The service is variable, but last time we had an attentive server. It's fun to come to Parc!
Service and food were very good but quite expensive.
Our45 th anniversary and the first anniversary of the couple at the next table. Lots of street activity and otherwise perfect
Ambiance of the restaurant was great. Server was attentive but sometimes so fast she kept spilling water filling up our glasses which ended in some soggy bread and a floating candle.
Foot selection is very expensive and honestly average. It's good - just didn't think the price was worth it.
Great Father’s Day lunch as always
We were there for our anniversary. We specifically asked our waiter to spread out our meal so we could enjoy each course. We were at a small table for two which was very nice near the window, but we weren’t finished our appetizers and our entrees came out. We had to make room, not the server . Unacceptable! Our waiter never checked with us after our entrees to see if we wanted another glass of wine our to see if our steak was cooked to our satisfaction. Unacceptable ! This was our first time at Parc based on recommendations from friends. Parc DID NOT meet our expectations. Very disappointing.
We had brunch to celebrate Father’s Day. The food was good but the location was loud. The temperature inside got warm once the windows were closed. Our appetizer was forgotten. The waiter apologized. I’ve come to expect exceptional experiences at Parc. It was good but not exceptional. Hopefully next time they will live up to expectations.
Awesome food and amazing service!! The Parc was able to accommodate 2 large tables next to each for our wedding brunch. Our server let us take our time and we enjoyed every second! We will be back . Thank you
Excellent service. Food was fantastic. Can’t wait to return!
When you’re not able to travel but need a little escape, Parc makes you feel transported. The service is exceptional (Tim was especially helpful), the food is always delicious (we enjoyed oysters, escargot and scallops), the cocktails divine and the atmosphere delightful. Much gratitude for a well thought out handicap accessible entrance that allowed me to dine in a wheelchair without any fuss.
Parc is always worth it. The food and wine are impeccable, the service warm & attentive, and the outdoor dining can’t be beat for people watching. Will always return whenever we’re in Philly!
Exceptional food. Server very attentive. Host was not too friendly or energetic.
Every time we travel to Philly we stop at Parc! It’s constantly terrific!
Fabulous, as always!
Food was great. Service started out strong. By the end of the meal the staff became very inattentive.
Love Parc. Always reminds me of our visits to Paris. Wonderful food and atmosphere!
Always a favorite whether for lunch, dinner or brunch!
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.
Simply perfect in every way! We plan to go back again and again.
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.
We were seated promptly and our server was warm and efficient
I loved everything about my visit! The food and service are always impeccable
Perfect in every way. Best staff in town, from check in to wait staff!
Terrific, as usual.
Food and service outstanding !! I would like to eat outside next time
Waiter was not as good as expected. He forgot some of our hot drinks and then fibbed about it. He wasn’t properly attentive. Quiche I had was good but nothing special. Friend’s trout was swimming in almonds—no subtlety at all.
Place is fun but food was just ordinary.
We had a great experience coming here for a 21st birthday dinner. We got seated and served quickly, and had a wonderful time.
Food came out quickly and everyone enjoyed their dinner. The salmon was excellent and was served in a bed of peas and lima beans which were excellent
Delicious food and excellent service. A bit noisy inside, but okay.
It was an anniversary and they read my note on my open table comment. Loved the service , great recommendations. Food was good and quick ! Couldn’t have asked for a better date night
We had a wonderful meal. The bread basket is worth a visit here. Rita, our server, was amazing.
GREAT table, always good but the crab in my avocado crab salad was a bit fishy; I did not eat it - filled up on some bread.
Great food, great service and wonderful experience.
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.
