Great quiche! Delicious fresh bread.
I felt like I was in Paris at a bistro. The ambience, lighting, service, food were all outstanding. I would return many times if I lived in the area. Highly recommend to anyone wanting great food, atmosphere, and service.
Parc is always great! They have done a wonderful job of adapting to COVID-19.
We love PARC, but the revisions with COVID dining have caused the service and food to suffer. It'll be a while before we go back.
Our prior experience at Parc was outstanding.
While it was nice that there was so much outdoor dining, we chose to dine indoors when we were told they couldn’t put up the umbrellas. Big mistake. We were seated back to back with other diners. Though there was plexiglass between us, that was inadequate. Just as disconcerting, the waitstaff came too close. One waiter in particular was within an inch or less and standing over my son. I would not recommend Parc during COVID because the staff seems either improperly trained or cavalier about respecting people’s personal space.
The lemon financier tart was delicious, as were the smoked salmon dishes, but the quiche was unremarkable.
Always a special visit! The food is amazing! Never does Parc let you down!
Onion soup is a must.
Steak Au Poivre and Steak Frites cooked to perfection.
The Grand Cosmo drink was delicious.
Service was amazing as always.
Best place for a romantic dinner
Sidecar was delicious. Trout to die for and the strip steak outstanding. Just Go!!
Parc did a great job with their outdoor seating on Saturday! Our server, Darwin, was fantastic. Thank you for a wonderful night out that felt really comfortable and normal! (The food and drinks were great, too!)
Parc was amazing as always!!! :)
Great as always!!
Always the best experience and food at Parc!
The quality of the food is simply out of this world. Although my favorite is brunch, all their menus have some of the highest quality food outside that of Paris. Perfectly cooked everything, incredible service, beautiful aesthetics, etc.
The food was incredible as always! Unfortunately, We made a 7:45 reservation, and had to wait until 8:30 for our table. The main hostess was incredible rude and we could tell they accepted far more reservations than they could handle. Ordinarily it would have been a great night to pass some time at the bar.
Never made it to our reservation. We arrived at the designated time but it took almost 45 minutes for our table to be ready so I had to unfortunately not dine here.
Professional service, delicious food and drinks and great ambiance will bring us back again. Thank you Parc for a wonderful experience.
Food was delicious, drink was delicious-basilic and most importantly- I felt safe with all their precautions. Sat outside on a beautiful day. It was extremely refreshing to feel some sense of what used to be.
Big fan, love Parc. We always visit when we're in Philadelphia.
My steak was too rare- not only did they give me a new one, the manager came out to apologize !! Always consistently wonderful !
Great dining experience. Attentive friendly wait staff
They nailed it. Great service that wasn’t overly attentive - felt like we comfortably had our space with the necessary regulations being followed for Covid safety. Food was perfect!
Great Service! great food! Always consistent, this is one of the best spots in the City.
Outstanding as usual
Edwin was fantastic. Another great Stephen Starr restaurant.
IF you are looking for French cuisine at its finest, this is the place and a gorgeous view of Rittenhouse Square.
The beautiful ambiance of Parc made our meal with an old friend from out-of-town very special. We sat indoors, near the windows, socially distanced from other diners, and found it quiet and charming, and more personal than outdoors in the street. The food was delicious, as always, although the service by masked waiters was impersonal.
Absolutely loved Parc. We dined outdoors and the restaurant had great accommodations for it including umbrellas when it seemed as if it might rain.
First time at parc— we came for brunch! Our server was great. It was so busy, and we only waited about 5 mins for our table. Food was amazing— warm shrimp salad was phenomenal. Wish the coffee was a little warmer but otherwise can’t wait to come back for more brunches!
The food was wonderful, as always. What a nice surprise for my daughter's birthday with a small dessert.
Service and food was outstanding. The band outside was a little loud, but this isn’t an issue with the restaurant. Really exquisite, fun, perfect experience—I will be back next time I’m in Philadelphia.
Hostess staff was obnoxious and aloof but our waiter Zach more than made up for it. Still our favorite place and under the circumstances we’ll give them a pass.
Another memorable Saturday evening and dinner at Parc. The service, atmosphere, food and wine are consistently exceptional at Philadelphia's best all around restaurant. Manager David Sherman, and the other management staff members, as well servers Angelo, Talbert, Olivia and Tamara excel at customer service and always make our meals truly wonderful experiences. Parc is also an exceptional value and date restaurant located with a great view of Rittenhouse Square. While we are Center City residents, Parc is certainly worth the drive into the city for those suburban and Jersey folks looking for a great dinning and COVID safe experience. We recently dinned there for brunch with a couple from South Jersey and they could not stop raving about their meal and experience. Thank you again to Parc!
I have dinned at Parc at least 15 times and the service is usually decently good, but tonight I was sad to have experienced a very rude server who was clearly only being rude to our table and being kind to others. Based on the reputation of Parc, I will return but be sure not to have this server.
Best meal we had in Philadelphia for a quick weekend getaway. The service was great and the food was delicious.
A fantastic outdoor eating experience.
Recommend! Heater at each table, in case it gets cold
Went for the first time last night with my girlfriend and it was absolutely amazing. Service was fantastic, we had Angel. I would recommend both the restaurant and requesting Angel to take care of you. Thank you for giving us an awesome night.
In COVID-19 times, my husband and I asked for a table in the street and the service was great. However, between the first and second plate we waited for 20 minutes long... that wasn't a good moment. Food is tasty and hi quality. I recommend Cafe Parc to finish your meal!
Awesome outdoor dining with live music on the square. Food was excellent as always. Our fav Philly hangout!
The seared scallops I had were amazing but whatever leafy green vegetable that was served with my scallops was very bitter and unseasoned. The color was also brown on some areas so I’m not sure if that’s the way it was supposed to be cooked. I asked the waiter what type of vegetable was it and she told me fennel, her response seemed uncertain. My guest ordered the roasted salmon and she was not pleased with how it tasted, it was lacking flavor. Also, the presentation/ plating of my entree did not look presentable. I didn’t have any issues with the beverages I ordered and the Moelleux au Chocolat I had for dessert was excellent. My guest brought to my attention that her apple tart was not served with caramelized apples and it seemed that the apples were put in a caramel sauce. Before my guest and I left since we did pay while I was finishing my drink, it was rude of the waiter to come by and put the slip about the new guidelines in front of us. If our 90 mins were up, she should have politely stated so. That was very unprofessional of her. The reasons listed above are why I gave my dinner experience a fair rating. I was thinking of giving this restaurant another try for brunch but if I’m going to have the same experience as I did for dinner, it wouldn’t be worth it.
