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.

We live on Rittenhouse Square and dine out seven nights a week. Parc is too noisy to sup at more than once a month. Just to noisy to be enjoyable. What a shame. Improvement is required.

Delicious, from the cocktails which were current and not your standard, the amazing tomato tarte, and a prime rib special that melted in your mouth.
Very nice service too. We had to ask for a different table, the first was angled so that someone had the back of his chair basically in my friends lap, but they were happy to accommodate.
Will definitely come back the next time we are in town.

Parc i has always been incredible. Dishes like the steak frites and the assorted oysters are always 10/10 wine list is curated well mostly affordable! Personal favorite is the lamb shank Provençal; goat cheese polenta and nicoise olives give it depth to the richness of the dish!

I have been to Parc several times. This was the first time I had an inept waitress. However, after speaking with the hostess, It was taken care of. They also comped my dessert which was a nice gesture.

We came here on a Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. It was a busy night but the services were great. Bread basket was incredible and it came with delicious butter. Escargots and charcuterie were excellent. The onion soup and entrees were on the salty side. Spaghetti bolognese was a disappointment. Overall, it’s good to give it a try.

Always a pleasure at Parc. My only criticism ever is that because all of the hard bistro surfaces, sound bounces around as if slingshot across the room and if your hearing has diminished a quarter decibel it's difficult to hear your dinner companions.
