Parc was a great French style restaurant with a lively atmosphere. It sits at the edge of the park and alhtough we sat inside (and had a great time) the outside seating seems to be a step up in terms of atmosphere and people watching. The food was great too, the wine list was substantial. Highly recommended. More

This was my second time dining at Entree. My first time was with a large group and I was very pleased with the food, service, ambiance, etc. The second visit was with my wife and two kids (11 & 9 yrs.). I was just as pleased this time as I was the first. The food is very well prepared. The offerings are sophisticated enough for discerning palates while recognizable and flavorful enough for my finicky kids to enjoy. Would definitely recommend and certainly will return. More

Spanish | Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia

Eaten here a few times, loved it each time. Food is amazing, same for the wine list and drinks. Great service every time. Only slight hangup on our most recent visit was the noise level downstairs. There's a bussing station out in the open so it got very loud when they were clearing tables and, mixed with hardwood walls, the noise kind of bounced around. Otherwise loved it. More

We came here for dinner before a show. The atmosphere was very private where we were seated. I had scallops that were like butter and Melted in my mouth. My husband had the halibut which he could not stop talking about accompanied by the mashed potatoes. We enjoyed the crème brûlée for dessert which we still can’t stop talking about. Definitely going to come back soon! More

Seafood | Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia

I love this restaurant and there is no secret as to why it's been in business for about 40 years (and I've been a customer the entire time). The food is absolutely delicious and reasonably priced, the service is terrific, there is a bar with a TV and a nice selection of wines, beer and liquor, the owners are on-site and hands-on and the menu is varied, including daily specials (not always fish or seafood - a juicy steak may be in order). Desserts are wonderful, the coffee is good, the ambience simple but comfortable and tasteful - truly one of the great neighborhood dining spots in Philadelphia or anywhere else. More

Discover Rittenhouse Square

Bordered by gleaming high-rises and featuring a well-manicured park, Rittenhouse Square sits in the midst of Philly cheesesteak territory, but you'll also find neighborhood restaurants offering custom shaved-beef creations alongside lighter vegetarian options. More formal Italian cuisine is also traditional in this section of town, and it's a nod to the immigrants who came over in the 18th and 19th centuries. Here, you’ll find everything from tagliatelle, gnocchetti and exotic raviolis to veal tenderloin and polenta. If you’re hungry for a snack and the weather’s cold, consider a warm soft pretzel from a street vendor. If it’s warm, opt for a classic Italian water ice or a gelato sampler.
