Bottomless mimosas, a beautiful Niçoise salad and a lovely brunch were had here! Our service was amazing, my daughter loved her crepes and my son’s chicken and waffles were deliciously!

Service is a bit on the slow side. But servers are very accommodating and nice. My omelett could use a pinch of salt. But onion soup was delish.

the shrimp cocktail were 4 large shrimps with a delicious cocktail sauce. Caesar salad was nice size pieces of romaine with great house dressing.
The lamb chops were cooked perfectly and the sweet potato au gratin was a first for me and wonderful. It was served with wilted spinach and garlic which was equally good.
The salmon dish was also cooked perfectly, with grilled brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes.
Try the chocolate praline mouse for desert.
We sat outside and the night was beautiful, the service excellent.

Love everything about Parc on 5th. A favorite of my husband and I. Love to bring friends there because we always have a great experience. Love the food and the ambience! We have made a lot of friends there as well during their Happy Hour.

A pleasant place and enviably available on a Sunday night. The food was ambitious but fell short of its ambition. My duck "two ways" was half good: the confit was tasty, the magnet de canard was simply the worst I've ever had. Preceded by an anemic Caesar salad (no hint of anchovy nor even was it offered, was slightly more palatable than the cheesecake for dessert. My companions liked the creme brûlée and that's why I give the place three stars.

We were a party of ten for brunch - they went out of there way to give us a private room which really made for a great time - the food was excellent and the service attentive. I have been here many times for dinner or happy hour - it has always been a positive experience.Great place!!

I like this place but it is not a place I would go to again and again. It is a little expensive especially if you order an appetizer and entree and a drink. The prix-fixe is not too expensive but the choices are very limited.

What a gem!! We went of a Monday night. It was quiet. Our waitress was also working as the bartender and she was knowledgeable, nice and on the money on recommendations. She clearly knows the menu and wines! Don’t overlook the chicken dish. The wine list is great. Great choices by the glass. Do yourself a favor and drop in to this lovely bistro.

Second time here and it did not disappoint, it was as good if not better than the first time. I was first here about two-years ago, and have always intended to come back. This past weekend I had an event Downtown, so we made another trip here. It was as good, if not better than the first time. Relaxing, friendly (Special note for Keegan (sp?) the Bartender, who is great) so was the rest of the staff, the food, the Happy Hour. Parc rates as one of my favorite spots. (Do not confuse with Parq, which I did once when researching if they were open or not).

Such relief to know the reservation with seating request was honored. None of my guests had been to Parc Bistro, so they were surprised and delighted to see tablecloths and napkins accompanying a very affordable menu!! Their coffee was very good! Each of us chose different brunch entrees and each was declared delicious! Our server, Nick, could not have been nicer, allowing us to chat without hurrying us along. What can I add? We'll be back!!

We always enjoy Parc Bistro. Good food and cocktails. Great location near The Old Globe. I enjoyed the beet salad and roasted chicken this time. It did not disappoint. However, another member of our group had the lobster mac 'n cheese. It was not that great. He complained that it wasn't very cheesey.

The food and wine was wonderful, as usual. However, the Saturday after Valentine's Day was so crowed that the service was slower than we had ever experienced at Parc Bistro - very, very slow. Hereafter, we will avoid the Valentine week.

Very comfortable table up front in the bar area. Ashley doubled as barmaid and server and did both fabulously. Oysters and mussels to die for. Fried artichokes too heavily battered. Beef tartare had no pizzaz. Oh well.
