This is our new, dinner before the Old Globe restaurant! The menu is vast and accommodates all our tastes. So glad that we found it! So many more choices than The Prado. The staff is so friendly and seated us in the back room where it is quieter. Great service and prices!

This is our go too restaurant, and always have had great food and friendly attentive service.
However on Valentines Day, they seemed incredibly disorganized and understaffed.
Cramped seating area n a loud environment.
Our waiter seemed overwhelmed.
Our food arrived before the appetizer did.
They took the food away and brought it back after the appetizer.
Only saw our waiter once after order was taken.
Filet Mignon had no seasoning or flavor.
Jumbo Prawns were cold.
We will return because we love this place, but never again on Valentines Day.

Great food and service. I really enjoyed the rack of lamb. My wife loved the jumbo prawns. So romantic and they had a great wine list too.

We have enjoyed the Parc several times already; always excellent. I gave the service four stars, as I always enjoy talking with the servers; they were quiet and efficient. It was my birthday, but no one asked; I should have volunteered. But there were friends to join us (first timers, and they loved Parc), who brought wine and flowers and presents. The food, for all of us, was superlative. Personally, I had looked forward to the rack of lamb. The noise level was a bit too loud ... but then there was a party going on near by. The food, the ambiance, the service, the design/decor were all excellent.
As we had a reservation, it would have been nice to welcome us by name ...

I had an outside table and was very thankful as I did not know they had live music inside, which would have been to loud for my comfort!

We came for a business lunch and the fries, salmon sandwich and quiche of the day were all absolutely delicious. The bread and salted butter w/ olive tapanade was a nice touch.

Jeff, our waiter, was very good..he had a lot of tables but amwas always there when we needed him. The cocktails were well crafted. The appetizers delightful and my rack of lamb was scrumptious The scallop with mushroom ragout was prepared to perfection. To complete the meal we enjoyed the amazing profiteroles and port. If it's a special occasion or a quick meal come to the Parc...its fantastic.

Well, after going through the hassle of trying to find parking, finally made it to this quaint little place. Was there for restaurant week and things started off well with our appetizers coming out pretty quickly. Then things took a turn and we started to notice that people who had arrived after us, had eaten already and were leaving before we had eaten. I couldn't even find my server to bring this to her attention. Then she finally shows up and says "we ready for dessert?" and we informed her that we hadn't received our entree yet! She felt horrible and so we "were the next ticket up", but even then there was still quite a bit of a wait.

So...entree finally arrives, and we order dessert afterwards which came out in a reasonable amount of time. Good thing we weren't in a hurry and the food was good, because otherwise, this place would not be on the return visit list. Apparently our service was impacted due to a large party at the front of the restaurant, but that just doesn't work for me. We were there BEFORE the large party and can't help it if we were seated in the back...and ultimately forgotten. In my opinion, that's just no excuse. While I might be back...it'll be a while before I do.

Very impressed with Parc - B. Came for SDRW. The portions were larger than I expected. I was with someone who is quite critical of most restaurants. But even he was rather pleased.
Both had rack of lamb. Came cooked as ordered, rare and medium rare. Expertly prepared with essence of rosemary.
Nice grade of ahi used for the tartare. And the Mille Feuille, puffed pastry with creme and fresh berries was delicious. Light and refreshing.

We decided on this restaurant based on a recommendation from a close friend. We were saying goodbye for now to my niece who is leaving for a semester abroad and wanted to enjoy a special meal with her and her and younger brother.

Obviously we booked on OpenTable and I reviewed the full menu on the app as well. It appeared to be at a good price point along with a nice variety for the four of us to enjoy.

Upon seating and reviewing the menu I was a bit surprised to see a very limited menu for restaurant week with a very high price point. To be honest If it was just my wife and I give them the number of restaurants in the local area we both agreed we would’ve walked out. Most restaurants that I’m aware of during restaurant week serve their regular menu and then have a side menu specific to restaurant week. I found the options at this restaurant a complete upsell.

As far as the food I had the roasted chicken which was very good I will say. The other three choices at our table where the salmon and the rack of lamb. The kids didn’t complain about the salmon although the portion was extremely small with minimal garnishments. The rack of lamb was tasteless.

It would’ve been nice to enjoy their full menu and I believe the bar menu at the happy hour time frame which was not available at the regular dining tables may have made this experience better.

The service was fine with no problems they were attentive and polite. They don’t make the menu!

I would not recommend this restaurant.

The total experience was great, however the actual entrees could have been more flavorful. If you are looking for quiet, elegant, a great wine list and very decent food, its a winner.

French onion soup and rack of lamb are outstanding. Duck was not as tender as we hoped. Country French Tartiflette was a disappointment -- the cheese was overpowering. Bottles of wine are extremely expensive. It would be nice to have some wines that are priced at less than $45 per bottle. Tables are nicely spaced so you can have a conversation with your table mates. Service was perfectly timed. We never felt rushed. We had a very enjoyable evening.
