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.

Delicious healthy food. Love the warm shrimp salad, the chicken, and the dessert Baba au Rhum. Great wines, beers, and cocktails. Delicious cranberry walnut bread.
The music is way too loud. It gives me indigestion which is why I rated ambience low. I don't understand why it has to be that way. I often won't come for this reason alone.
Also, can't they ever change the menu? It's been exactly the same for years.

It was my second meal there and I had the Mediterranean Seabass that was excellent and a nice portion. I also enjoy the French onion soup but found it a bit on the salty side. The wine list is also quite nice with reasonably priced wines by the glass. The frites were a bit overcooked but tasty. The creme brûlée was delicious. Overall a nice meal and would definitely return.

Terrific vibe with solid, delicious food every single time. The plateau de fruits de mer seems expensive but is actually a deal.

I made a reservation 4 weeks ago for breakfast and requested a table overlooking the park. They put us in the middle of the dining room. Then when we asked to move they put us in a corner looking at the bus station. Not appealing. They should do better than that.

We had a great dining experience at the Parc tonight, the service was excellent, the food was well prepared and tasty, and the overall experience was fantastic. We really enjoyed the meal and the restaurant itself is beautiful. I would go here again without hesitation.

Everything was fantastic! A little pricey but the quality was worth it! We got the chicken liver parfait and mushroom tart for our appetizers and both are highly recommended!!! The sandwiches were good but we definitely should've done more hors d'oeuvres!! Looking forward to coming back!

I feel transported to France when we dine at Parc. The menu feels a touch limited, but it’s options are diverse, and my wife and I have a few faves. The breads alone are worth it. The tarte tatin should be more carameliized, but is still very tasty. Always a good choice.

Hostess was completely rude and greeted us with a frown, and spoke to us very curtly. Definitely not hostess material. The food was excellent, however my first two choices were not available, they had run out! Not a good look for a four star restaurant. It was very noisy as well, but was to be expected in a space like this.

Not a bad experience but a couple of hiccups. First we ordered crab legs but received lobster. Obviously not the worst mistake in the world but... the main issue was the location of our table. It was a colder night and some people were eating outside (don’t know how). Our table was located near the back service entrance and every other minute or so we got an arctic blast. Luckily as night fell the diners outside dwindled, and the cold blasts lessened. On a positive note all the food was good and we received complimentary macaroons for dessert. Good experience but could have been better.

It was my Birthday, but I never put that on Reservation.
I have dined here several times before so we knew what to expect. I was disappointed however when I asked for a bread basket from our waitress and she never returned with one. I noticed every table around us had bread on the table, but we were never offered any bread at all whatsoever. We arrived after 11 AM, which our waitress said was when they usually bring the basket of bread.
We waited a while and bread never came. I ended up asking a busboy to bring some.
