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.

Avoid the sardines. They actually place a tiny tin can on a plate with a few blocks of bread...voila! Thumbs down.

- born and raised in suburban Philly, and we make it a point to find great local restaurants whenever we dine in town. We've tried most of the big ones and many hidden gems, but our go to in center city is often Parc - brunch, lunch, dinner, it never fails to be excellent.

Even as restaurants in town open after the COVID drama, and so many struggle to staff sufficiently, Parc was busy, fully staffed and the food and service were equally excellent. It was like a duck on the water - calm to observers, but no doubt paddling frantically under the surface.

If you find yourself trying to pick someplace to eat downtown and don't want to risk making a mistake, go to Parc. Although you pay for the experience, Stephen Starr restaurants are consistently excellent.

Enjoyed lunch in a chalet. Food was delicious - shrimp salad and nicoise salad. Server was pleasant, helpful, and courteous. I will return and recommend it to others. Note that if you come for second shift, you might have to wait for another party to leave.

Greatest outdoor dining in the Northeast. Evene with limited seating because of the pandemic, you could be on a sidewalk in France. Food is terrific.

If you are looking for something to new to try at Parc - try the veal - it is exceptional and very tender - the sauce is flavorful but not overpowering - if you like mushrooms this is also a must to try! Fabulous friendly service and great cocktails - loved the Moscow Mule

On a chilly day, we had brunch in a cozy chalet outdoors with heater. (You have to request the chalet in advance.) The food was outstanding - eggs benedict, omelet, lobster, crab and avocado. Server was courteous, prompt, and helpful. I will return and recommend it to others.

Parc was delicious! We originally had outdoor dining reservations but it was cold and drizzly, they were able to accommodate us inside since we had such an early reservation (5:45) but said if we waited any longer to decide the inside would probably be full due to Covid capacity restrictions. Notable menu items include the French onion soup, sea bass entree, and the lava cake. The complimentary breadbasket is also fantastic! Expensive to come here frequently but great to celebrate a special event or a date night in the city! Will be back!

The food and service were terrific but no matter how chic Rittenhouse Square is when you share a sidewalk with incinerate dog walkers, bus fumes and oddly dressed kids, your French Onion Soup loses some appeal.

Food was great, sights were great, but the servers (especially hostess area) was a snooty and didn’t make us feel welcome. There was light rain and it was brisk out, and when we requested seating with more protection from the elements we were denied.

However the next two parties that asked were accommodated right away, quite possibly because they were older and dressed very nicely. We are young professionals who do very well for ourselves, but I guess we didn’t look the part of ‘rich people’ so we were pushed aside.

It was our anniversary and first time at Parc, and my fiancé was fighting tears from the unwelcoming vibe. Food quality was only thing saving this from 1 star. We will not be going back.

Everything from start to finish was perfect. Service was on point and perfectly timed, almost magically. The manager stopped by to insure we were having a great night out- this really makes an experience special. All the food was impeccable- the standout being the steak tartare.

Dining outside can be a little trying for the staff to check on tables, but that does not diminish the quality of the food. The bread is always outstanding and we could probably make a meal with it!
