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.

If you are looking for something to new to try at Parc - try the veal - it is exceptional and very tender - the sauce is flavorful but not overpowering - if you like mushrooms this is also a must to try! Fabulous friendly service and great cocktails - loved the Moscow Mule

On a chilly day, we had brunch in a cozy chalet outdoors with heater. (You have to request the chalet in advance.) The food was outstanding - eggs benedict, omelet, lobster, crab and avocado. Server was courteous, prompt, and helpful. I will return and recommend it to others.

Parc was delicious! We originally had outdoor dining reservations but it was cold and drizzly, they were able to accommodate us inside since we had such an early reservation (5:45) but said if we waited any longer to decide the inside would probably be full due to Covid capacity restrictions. Notable menu items include the French onion soup, sea bass entree, and the lava cake. The complimentary breadbasket is also fantastic! Expensive to come here frequently but great to celebrate a special event or a date night in the city! Will be back!

The food and service were terrific but no matter how chic Rittenhouse Square is when you share a sidewalk with incinerate dog walkers, bus fumes and oddly dressed kids, your French Onion Soup loses some appeal.

Food was great, sights were great, but the servers (especially hostess area) was a snooty and didn’t make us feel welcome. There was light rain and it was brisk out, and when we requested seating with more protection from the elements we were denied.

However the next two parties that asked were accommodated right away, quite possibly because they were older and dressed very nicely. We are young professionals who do very well for ourselves, but I guess we didn’t look the part of ‘rich people’ so we were pushed aside.

It was our anniversary and first time at Parc, and my fiancé was fighting tears from the unwelcoming vibe. Food quality was only thing saving this from 1 star. We will not be going back.

Everything from start to finish was perfect. Service was on point and perfectly timed, almost magically. The manager stopped by to insure we were having a great night out- this really makes an experience special. All the food was impeccable- the standout being the steak tartare.

Dining outside can be a little trying for the staff to check on tables, but that does not diminish the quality of the food. The bread is always outstanding and we could probably make a meal with it!

Parc never disappoints. This was our first experience dining out since the beginning of the pandemic. The private chalet we sat in was so cozy and comfortable. The food was 100% top notch. Service was perfect. This is for a very special occasion, my daughter turned 21 and Parc was the perfect choice. We loved our escargots and mushroom tart as appetizers and beef bourguignon for my husband and daughter. I had the steak frites which was absolutely succulent. Thanks to the staff of Parc for surprising us with an amazing dessert board filled with macarons, lemon meringue pie ice cream and a hot chocolate lava cake. This is one of our go to places--celebrating a birthday at Parc felt like home.

if you're a philly native and are leaving for good...THIS is where you have your last meal. this place is lovely (even though it's a rip off of pastis in nyc) and the staff is professional, accommodating, knowledgeable, and attentive (but not too attentive).

i will miss rittenhouse square people watching, the warm shrimp salad, and jess...the best restaurant manager i've ever had the privilege to meet. she's always on point!

Twice, we were brought food we didn't order. When our order arrived, only 2 of the 3 entrees were delivered. My 2 lunch partners had finished their meal when mine arrived. The manager was very, very accommodating and very pleasant, but the damage had been done.

Overall fantastic. The service could not have been better and the food was fantastic - from the bread to the steak frites. However, the apple tart tartine dessert was a little tough - but still quite good. I look forward to going back.

Olivia is a wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable server.
Best food menu in the city. Impossible to choose.
Bouef bourginon sauce is classic French bistro. As good as there is.
Oysters were fresh and delicious.

My friend came to visit and I knew I had to take her to Parc for dinner. We were seated promptly after arriving and our waitress ensured that we were well taken care of. The food here is always a hit. We started with the mushroom tart then shared the warm shrimp salad and roasted half chicken. Everything was cooked to perfection and we will definitely come back again.

Returning to Parc during these challenging times was a real treat as we sat outdoors with a beautiful view of the blossoms on Rittenhouse Square.

There were no surprises as our lunch items (Salmon Tartare, Devilled eggs and Croque Madames) arrrived, accompanied with a perfect bread basket of sliced baguette and fruit and walnut bread the meal was very enjoyable.

For dessert we selected (and shared) a classic Apple Tarte Tatin and a small plate of perfectly sized colorful French macarons.

The server was efficient, friendly and attentive as our meal was nicely paced and leisurely in spite of the fact that it was very busy during the lunch hour period.
Thanks to Team Parc and we are looking forward to our next visit there.
