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.

When restaurants all built outdoor sheds to serve meals in lieu of indoor dining all was well. The problem is that Parc is now packing the inside of the restaurant, original outdoor seating as well as the sheds that run the full length of both sides of the restaurant.

The result is that seating is beyond the capacity for servers and the kitchen to manage meals in a timeframe that isn’t remotely acceptable. If you’re OK getting your drinks in 20 minutes, starters in 50 minutes and mains in an hour and 15 minutes, the current Parc is the place for you.

And it isn’t a service issue. The place was well staffed and everyone was hustling. I appreciate that restaurants are trying to shore up losses after a terrible year, but booking beyond reasonable capacity creates a negative experience for everyone.

Bask in the glow of the warm lights at this French bistro right on the park. Some of the food is SLIGHTLY oversalted, but it's delicious enough to make up for it. The complimentary bread basket, especially, is a real treat.

Excellent food and service. Pleasant staff. Only suggestion is coffee decaf was served lukewarm and not fresh. Always good to dump those pots from brunch and make fresh!

The ambience and food were wonderful. At this French bistro, I ordered the coq au vin (chicken braised in wine) over pappardelle (pasta). It was divine. I highly recommend this place.

Outstanding experience!
As usual Parc always offers well executed dishes, fantastic service and best ambiance.
Special thanks to our exceptional waiter Charles who was attentive, knowledgeable, efficient and always smiling!
(Tough job to work the long Parc terrasses! The hostess was also welcoming)

Lauren, one of the managers is dynamic and makes sure that the guests’ dining experience is a memorable one.

We were pampered and truly enjoyed our evening on a nice Sunday.

We only want to eat at Parc whenever we visit Philadelphia for business or pleasure.
Kudos to the whole team!

Our service was great! The appetizer came out with the main course so that was a mix up but everyone was nice about it. Would definitely come again.

Took the family to Parc for a Bday brunch. Server was attentive and the food was excellent. The seating in the streetery was not very comfortable and the table wobbled a bit but all in all it was still a good experience.

My 12-year-old daughter and I were planning a shopping trip in Philadelphia, and I wanted to find a restaurant nearby where we could have a really nice meal and relax. Parc did not disappoint. We ate before the dinner rush, so we had the lunch menu. It was perfect for us and so delicious! It is a little expensive, but everything, including the experience made me feel like I was getting a great value. The server treated my daughter just like a young adult. We ate outside in one of their booth-like areas, and the ambience was so nice. It was a perfect intermission to our busy day!

Located directly across the street from Rittenhouse Square park, Parc is superb for people watching in style. The food is very good; the service excellent. We ate outdoors, but indoors also seemed to have its own charms, and if the temperature outdoors is either too hot or too cold, indoors looked great.

My first time at Parc and I loved it. The service was both professional and friendly. The timing of the service of the food was perfect. And the food was excellent. We started with the tomato tart, and then had the quiche and the hamburger, finishing with the profiteroles. All excellent. Can't wait to go back.

My wife and I met a friend for at 11:15 AM for a brunch and an opportunity to just relax and have a nice time. The Parc met the bill. We all had different main course options and we all enjoyed our selection. I would recommend The Parc.

A nice easy place to take out of town guests. Rittenhouse Square provides a nice background and after dinner stroll. The menu is easy to navigate for a table of 4 with varying dietary needs.
