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.

The best!! Our server was phenomenal. Sunday brunch was busy but we didn’t feel like they were rushing us out. Always delicious!

My friends and I had an amazing meal. I had the bouillabaisse, and it was delicious. I also had two pamplemousse drinks that were equally good.

My friends all enjoyed their meals very much, too. One had the bouillabaisse like me and the other had the trout.

Sergio was our waiter. He was very friendly and helpful with the menu. He helped us decide on getting the tomato tart as an appetizer. It was the perfect recommendation.

We will definitely come again!

As usual everything was great! The bread basket was great! The restaurant was very busy and quite noisy, but did not distract from a great meal. The French onion soup was delicious. The warm shrimp salad was wonderful and so was the ham/cheese on a baguette. The waitress kept refilling our iced teas and water, perfect amount of checking up. Will be back again

Consistently good bistro food, delicious bread, prompt and friendly service. Only drawback was aggressive panhandlers who approached our outside table twice. They are out in force and diners are a target.

Sitting outside at Parc is always great for people watching. I met a friend in town for breakfast and was really rely and they were nice enough to seat me and let my enjoy coffee as I waited. My omelette was pretty big and the prices are reasonable for a fancier weekday breakfast or weekend brunch. Also, totally worth it just for the bread bowl.

Enjoyed the bar and the restaurant. Service was great-- attentive but not rushed. Decor tries very well for the French bistro look (and I have been to Paris). Only negative is the sound level-- popular means loud and have to raise voice to be heard.

The restaurant is good but could definitely use just a few (even one) vegetarian friendly options. My tomato salad that for some reason was highly recommended by our waiter was only 5 slices of a tomato spread out on a plate for $14. The person I was dining with had a salad $18+ and that one in my opinion was worth the price. Overall outside seating and the inclusion of the basket of bread actually did make me want to return. Just hoping for some more non-meat choices. Philly is full of non-meat eaters.

Love The Parc and look forward to our next visit (all the way for SC), but dinner was not as good as previous evening dining experience. Just generally not as good -

Met friends for lunch. Had to delay ordering as one had trouble parking. Waiter David exceptionally nice and pleasant and returned several times while we were waiting. I had salad nicoise and he specifically asked about the anchovies which I appreciated. It is a little noisy inside but it was raining outside.

Parc is my wife and my favorite date night go-to. Date night is especially important to us after having four daughters (who are now almost all out of the house) and little time to spare. The food reminds us of what we loved in, and we miss about, Paris. Always exceptional food and drink and the service matches. Ambiance is alive and welcoming.

This time out we took took friends who were in from Chicago to celebrate their retirement. We picked Parc (of course because it is our favorite) and it did not let us down.

We love you Parc!

We are from Washington, DC and have to say Le Diplomate is so much better. The burger, the service, the ambience. We were really disappointed in the food at Park (with the exception of the amazing bread basket). The Le Diplomate burger is FAR better than Parc’s. The Parc burger was dry and didn’t have much flavor at all.

We lucked out and it was a beautiful Saturday morning for brunch. We were seated on the walnut st. Side right by the window. Our server was attentive and friendly. We had a great breakfast of eggs Benedict, eggs Norwegian and French toast with the beet and carrot salad to start. Will definitely plan on returning and trying dinner.

Super fun atmosphere, great place to go and be out! Food was delicious too. Only negatives are it is loud so you have to be good with that...lots of fun convos going on. And it is a bit pricy. But loved would totally go again.

Came here while on vacation. We really enjoyed the king crab deviled eggs as our appetizer. We both chose the roast chicken with puréed potatoes and pan jus. It was delicious! The chicken was perfectly cooked with crispy skin and the potatoes were like velvet. Generous portions. Great cocktails with fresh ingredients. Definitely recommended!

Returning to Parc after some three or four years was delightful. Little -- fortunately -- had changed. Food and service were of high quality. Yes, it is still noisy, and luck determines whether you happen to be next to that particularly noisy table (we were three away, thanks be). And, yes, the chair could have been a little steadier to handle my excess pounds. Those are relatively minor detractions. The salad lettuce was fresh, the veal cooked as it should be, the haricots verts steamed to the point of tenderness, but not beyond. When we are next in Philadelphia, we will go again gladly.
