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.

Decided to get away from DC for the weekend with all the craziness of Corona virus, Philly was awesome, not busy at all, tons of free city parking next to the major landmarks. Hotel (Kimpton) recommended Parc to us, we got there right as they opened up at 10am, we were sat promptly and Ryan was at our table in a minute. Food/drinks was on point, but Ryan was excellent, not too intrusive but always close at hand for questions or needs. Flawless execution of service and settings. Highly recommend Parc but even more get Ryan!

My parents took my wife and I here for our 1 year wedding anniversary and I cannot think of a better brunch place in Philadelphia to celebrate. The food, service and ambiance are excellent and my wife and I are going to try and come here every couple of months.

Parc never disappoints, whether for brunch or dinner. Our entrees were incredible, the highlight was the Lobster Risotto special, so amazing! Everyone loved their meals from start to finish!!! Parc is always solid, one of our "Philly go-to's"!

It’s still a great place to go for a drink but the food has been on a major downhill spiral although the bread basket is still a highlight

I would absolutely recommend this restaurant and fully intend to visit again should I return to Philadelphia. The Trout Alamandine is the best fish I have ever had in my entire life!

Have been dining at Parc for >10 years. One tradition a friend and I have to to celebrate her birthday there for lunch and the house carafe of white wine. There 3/8 to celebrate her 70. I had made reservations in advance and our table was a small round tacked onto the end of bench seating, no more than 8 inches from the shoulder of the diner next to me. We ordered the wine and waited and then told that they didn't have the carafe of wine that day. The server did not offer a substitution, which seems to me would have been the right thing to do.

One of my new favorite restaurants in Philadelphia! I loved the lively atmosphere, the attentive wait staff, and the sublime baba au rhum I had for dessert. I will definitely come back during my next visit to Philadelphia.

The food was very good and the decor was very authentic. I felt I was walking into a French restaurant in France. The music, signs, lamps, etc all helped to pull off the magic. Would have been five stars except for the value, where it was like an Eiffel tower experience.

Our favorite spot for escargot. Seems like there are fewer escargot per serving than previously, and more mushrooms.

My wife and I really enjoy Parc. The food is quite good and is very well-served (especially by Fong and Breslin). Another big plus is the size of its dining room; Parc often can seat you even when it is a busy night.
I always look forward to dining there, and you will enjoy it as well.

Consistently wonderful, my favorite waiter and the food here at Parc make this a place I am proud to bring my friends to! The mushroom tart to share is straight out of France, and the mile high quiche and excellent salad are always a treat! I keep coming back here because the food and service are so special! I highly recommend the steak and frites, the mussels and frites, and the croque madame. Even the chicken is fantastic, as is the trout--special treat!
