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.

**A note from the restaurant**
Outside seating is on a first come, first serve basis.

Overpriced for an actual French brasserie. Good experience, but have wines listed completely incorrectly.

Always at the top of their game, the restaurant continues to offer good food, fabulous breads, highly skilled service and a great setting on Rittenhouse Square. It can’t be topped in its genre.

Was great to be back dining inside after the long shut-down due to Covid. Food was top notch as usual. Atmosphere is like being in a little slice of Paris which is a great distraction given the current state of things in general. Highly recommended!

Came in late on Saturday with my 13 year old and our dog. Each one of us was expertly taken care of by Talbert. Such a professional and just a charming, warm, special dude and was so pivotal to giving us a chill end of the week.

Truly a step across the Atlantic into a Parisian outdoor bistro. The wait staff was beyond personable, truly attentive, and just take an amazing dining experience to the next level.

In from out of town and Parc is my favorite restaurant so had to go there. I always order the steak tartare. It was perfect. My husband had steak frites, done to his perfect temp. The server heard me mention it was his birthday so she brought cake with a candle. Nice little surprise.
We went back the next morning for brunch and again another good meal. Love their breads.

Best bread in the city. Love the food and vibe. Great to bring people from out of town especially if you face the park on a beautiful day. Friendly servers, attentive to filling water, etc. Great onion soup. Never feel rushed. Have returned many times.

Food was amazing as always and so was our waiter. Bartender girl on the other hand... very standoffish. We asked her a question about a drink and her response was “it’s good” and made it for my friend even though we just wanted to know about it.

We ate at the Parc two days in a row. What does that tell you? The bread, particularly the Walnut-Cranberry was to die for. My first meal may sound prosaic — a cheeseburger with fries. However, it was humongous and delicious with sauteed onions, and fresh tomatoes. The following day we ordered the quiche, which was also great. Oh, our waiter was Ross and he was both professional and personable, so much so we asked to be seated at his station on our second visit. I'd eagerly go again on my next visit to Philly.

Lunch with a friend, sat indoors by the window. Service was impeccable, nice atmosphere --with COVID restrictions there was plenty of room between tables. Love Parc, it's always a great choice.

We’ve been here many, many times. The food is reliably very, very good. Classic dishes made in the manner one expects. The west coast oysters were sweet and brine-y. Trout Amandine had crisp skin, with Haricots Vert that were cooked just right (not mushy!). My wife loved the Duck and Figs. The service is terrific, professional, friendly, efficient. We ate inside on sept 12th. We’re pretty cautious about wearing masks and distancing and felt pretty comfortable. Not sure how it’ll be when capacity is increased to 50% from the current 25%, but as it stands now it was good. Lots of space between tables.

It was wonderful to finally go back and eating outdoors was delightful. My only criticism would be to go easy on the salt- on both the crab and avocado appetizer and the mussels.
