Parc, Winner of the 2018 Restaurant of the Year by Hour Detroit Magazine, and many other awards, features “Redefined Detroit Cuisine.” Our menu is inspired by the influences and flavors of Detroit’s vast cultural communities, past and present. Our menu gives tribute to this rich history, and offers guests familiar yet refined expressions of traditional Midwestern foods, with influences of French and Mediterranean flavors and styles.

Located in the heart of the award-winning Campus Martius Park, PARC features more than 100 feet of Nanaglass window walls to provide guests with clear, 270-degree views of downtown Detroit.

Our restaurant and bar is spacious yet intimate, and features a wide, welcoming center bar. Our kitchen is small but mighty, a testament to the phrase “big things come in small packages.” We’re proud of our wood-fired grill, which allows our chef team to create a range of delicious, unique dishes that excite the soul.

Booked for our first anniversary. Tagged the booking through open table as an anniversary. Neither the hostess or the waiter ever mentioned anything about it being a special occasion nor did they ask us. The drink I ordered wasn’t available because something was out of stock which was fine, ordered something different which ended up having a small bug in the drink. Waiter was good about replacing the drink but overall the experience was just ok. High price for the meal we received but the location inside campus Martius is a cool spot inside downtown Detroit.

Last evening we dined at Parc to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. The staff was fabulous, the food was divine and the ambience was perfect. The staff even presented my daughter with a complimentary macaron dessert. Macarons happen to be her favorite sweet treat. She was very happy. We will definitely be back.

My wife and I had a great pre-anniversary dinner. I’d say the food was hit n miss with the scallops being the true standout of the dishes. Our server, Devan C, was absolutely fantastic. Super personable when we first were seated and attentive throughout. The macaroon sundae he brought at the end of our meal to help celebrate our event was a unexpected gesture that definitely was fantastic. Didn’t hurt that the macaroons were the other major stand out of our meal.

You should not be asking your customers to limit their seating time to 90 mins. That’s crap. For at least $100 per person, part of the experience is sitting and enjoying it. If you have to ask people to limit their time, stop
Overbooking, or better yet, invest in a Coney Island. Very disappointed that you would ask that. Good food and service were great, but will not be going back for that reason. It’s an insult.

Good location with indoor and outdoor seating. Servers were friendly and the manager did come to check on meal. Food quality was moderate for this price range; steak (med-rare) was more medium and pasta dishes were "OK" but no unique taste. Wine service did not offer decanting for a $125-150 bottle which did produce sediment in the final glasses. Portions were moderate in size, which is a nice change from the bucket of food offered by many restaurants. Overall, a 3 star experience on a scale of 1-5; reasonable but not outstanding in this price range.

I took a friend here for brunch to celebrate her birthday. My selection was the salmon, latkes, and fried egg. The salmon was sliced very thick. I had to ask for lemon as none accompanied my selection. The latkes were also thick and flavorless - they seemed almost deep fried, and the eggs which I requested over medium, were over easy. My guest was looking forward to the omelet with sausage and carmelized onions (her favorite). After she was served she realized there were no carmelized onions in the omelet. When the waiter asked us how we enjoyed our meal, and she mentioned the lack of carmelized onions, he told her the kitchen had told him earlier that they weren't available that day. Had she known that when he took our order, she would have ordered something else. I presumed, wrongly, there would be a nice birthday dessert, however all that was offered was a scoop of ice cream. Parc was where my friend was looking forward to dining but it was disappointing for both of us. I can't speak for her, but it is unlikely I will ever eat here again.

Despite a wonderful location and ambiance, the food does leave a lot to be desired at Parc. We were stunned when ordering the Tomato Mozzarella Bombs, to find out they were merely Hot Pockets with some arugula tossed about. The Braised Veal Ragu barely contained any protein at all, again a glorified and overpriced simple pasta dish. The description states "baby carrot" as an ingredient, and laughably, there was only a single sliced round of carrot to be found in the entire thing. Perhaps the worst thing we tried at Parc was the stuffed Zucchini — grotesquely large raw chunks of the vegetable, with a tiny hole carved out of it for some bland cheese paste and breadcrumbs. If I wanted to munch on overpriced produce for diner, I'd troll the aisles of Plum Market.

Parc was perfect to meet a friend for lunch. It was easy to make a reservation and find parking. There was ample outdoor seating when we arrived, and our table was technically indoors, but all the walls were open so we felt very safe covid-wise. We ordered the Woodward salad, shrimp tostadas, and chicken tacos, and all enjoyed our food. The salad was beautiful and filling. The service was excellent throughout the meal, with perfectly timed check-ins and water refills. The ambience couldn't have been more beautiful with the sounds and sights of the water features right outside the restaurant. Looking forward to trying it for dinner sometime!

Pac did not meet up to our expectations. When the web site suggested jackets be worn we assumed it was a nicer restaurant. Our impression started to go down hill when we parked in the Kennedy Square garage and took the steps up to Woodward, This took us through an area of trash and stench getting to Parc. Our table was ready. The first thing we noticed was that we were the only ones wearing jackets. We were quickly greeted by our server an our drinks were brought in a reasonable time. Our order was also taken quickly. Then we did not see our serer again until we asked the hostess to remind him we were still there. Other people brought out our appetizer and entrée. The server did come and get us boxes for our dinners and took our dessert order.
We were expecting a different atmosphere to celebrate our anniversary.
Maybe we just expected too much. When you spend over 200.00 for dinner for 2 I guess I am just old fashioned and expect some eloquence. We won't be going back

Had dinner at PARC to celebrate my sister’s bachelorette dinner. Everything was amazing! The food was great, the atmosphere was wonderful and Eddie is the best manager I’ve ever met. He put in a special favor for us that made our experience much more enjoyable. We will definitely return.

Food was very good and service was exceptional. However there was a large party taking up two tables next to us that were yelling and cheering throughout the dinner. It’s an unfortunate situation when you are spending over $600 for a meal with family.

The food is very bland, I would only recommend the wings. The main entrees are mediocre and the dessert sucks. Save your money and go somewhere where you will actually feel satiated at the end of your meal. I think the ambiance and indoor/outdoor experience is what makes the restaurant seem like the cool place to be...but the food is not up to par...c...do you see what I did there. Oh and thr price...not worth it.

Great service from Marvin. Top notch! However the food was over thought. Stay away from the charred burrata unless you like soupy potatoes with a little bit of cheese. The pizzetta had no identity and was meh. The short rib pasta was very tasty, but one too many flavors. Would give five stars for have the price but for 2 people @$215 after tip, go elsewhere.
