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.

We had a wonderful meal at an inside table on the Square. We both had the chicken - which is always tender and delicious. I held off on the oh so fabulous mashed potatoes and opted for the sautéed spinach. My cousin asked for hers with French fries. They’re quite accommodating about these substitutes. We each took half our chicken home. Delicious meal. And my leftover chicken topped my salad the next day!

Joined a friend for a long overdue lunch at one of my favorite Philadelphia restaurants. As always, everything was wonderful, and always my special table requests are honored. We both did not even look at the menu and ordered "our usuals" which was great to know we think alike. I love this place and it is a standout among the Starr RG establishments. I should start a list to see how many I have been to. Who knew after boozy evenings eons ago at Continental it would turn into such an amazing endeavor.

Sat outside enjoying the New Orleans music from the 3 guys playing across the street and a carafe of wine.
Need more vegetarian options.

A remarkable meal with so many authentically French touches that it’s hard to single out what made the meal so good. Marvelous service by genuinely sweet waiters. An interior that looked just like La Coupole in Paris. Beautifully fresh treatment of classic bistro dishes. And finally superb desserts, including first-rate sorbets. Not to be missed if you’re in Philadelphia.

Parc is one of my favorite restaurants in Philadelphia. Sitting outside in the evening when the Curtis kids are practicing is a nice bonus.

Four of us had a great lunch as Parc is one of our all time favorites and we go there often. everyone was delighted and as i am there so frequently I tried new dishes and was very satisfied: escargots which I hadn't had at Parc in years, and a new dish to me: chicken liver parfait...fantastic.
This is surely one of the greatest and most fun restaurants in the city and why it isn't a part of Phila. Magazine's top 50 is certainly a mystery.

The restaurant should put a fence around the tree across the street to limit access to dogs. Not pleasant when this is in the line of site.

My omelette with spinach and goat cheese was not made with real eggs and the goat cheese was
almost impossible to find. The coffee was terrible. The quality of food at Parc has been declining for months and thisoccasion was my last visit to Parc due to quality changes in food.

Awesome breakfast/brunch location! The food was very good and the location could not be better! Our party included three children and this place is extremely family friendly (plenty of stroller parking/ car seat accommodation). The staff was amazing as well!

Saturday early evening is normally a crowded time. You need to be patient and enjoy the ambient and the view to the park. This time the food took longer than usual but was very good as always. The onion soup deserve the wait!

Excellent service - good cocktails - loved the freshness of the food and creativity of the dishes. The servers are great. Soon as someone leaves it’s immediately cleaned. Soon as someone gets up on the table someone comes to fold the napkin and place it on the chair. Always courteous ! Never have annoying drummers from the outside.
