French
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.

I totally love Parc: the food is great, the ambiance is like a real French bistro. It’s noisy, and active, and they shouldn’t change a thing. Five stars!

I am so disappointed...presentation of food is what sells here. Definitely not the food. Ordered Eggs Benedict, regular Thomas’ English Muffin etc., nothing special. I could have stayed home and made & saved myself $15! Least that could have been done was make he bread. Prices are highly inflated, I believe due to the area, and food is nothing special.

Met a friend for a late lunch. She had the quiche and said it was delicious. The portion was huge and came with some mixed greens. I had the Mushroom soup and several pieces of the outstanding baguette with butter. I finished off the meal with the fruit nut bread from the complimentary basket on the table. The place was bustling both inside and out.

Parc was a gem. We arrived for our reservation on time and were immediately seated. The waiter was already aware of my food allergies, having read my comments on the reservation and was able to make some suggestions and with a little back and forth with the chef, I was able to make a selection. I had the Lobster Cocktail and it was pretty good with typical cocktail sauce, the Beef Bourguignon was exceptional full of flavor and flakey with some creamy mashed potatoes that complemented the beef. For dessert the Chocolate Pots de Creme was excellent. Very special restaurant.

Parc remains excellent... Warm shrimp salad, onion soup, bread basket, baked chicken, mashed potatoes even lol... and the drinks ... everything was top notch ... extremely enjoyable ... remember its loud and crowded and i love that but this is not for an intimate dining experience... this is fun and exciting dining for the "in" crowd

Escargot placed before me with No utensil. Had to wait a while to get someone’s attention. Then given a full size dinner fork to eat escargot. Upon mentioning the fork was wrong, I was then asked if I wanted a spoon. Finally our waiter got me the appropriate size fork.

My duck was over the top salty! As soon as it touched my tongue, it was like a salt lick.

We frequent Parc and have considered it one of our favorites. Unfortunately, After this experience, may be a long time before returning.

We enjoyed our brunch and had an excellent server. The manager made a snide comment when I asked if she was the hostess. She seemed stressed. The food was good. But my eggs Benedict could have been a little more cooked. Just my opinion. The rest of the meals were ok. Nothing extraordinary. Our bill was $100.00 us tip for 1 app and 3 breakfast orders. No alcohol. It just seemed a bit much. But it's Parc.

Had reservations for this past Sunday. Our omelets arrived cold. We sent them back and they returned to us luke warm. I Would think a restaurant with such a great reputation would be able to figure this out by now? I will give them another chance but overall , disappointing this time around.

Parc is our go-to when in Philly. Never a disappointment. The place is always hopping, so take that into consideration. The dishes are wonderful. Fresh ingredients and great flavors. Man could live by bread alone if it was baked at Parc.

Food and service were excellent! Our table against the window seemed less noisy than the restaurant, which we appreciated. Not sure we would come back with a bigger group than just 2 people as I suspect it would be hard to hear each other. Definitely want to return someday for another date!

A great brasserie, excellent atmosphere. Service is attentive. The food - although it was very good - was not the focus, it is a place to wine and dine with friends. We are new to philly, only a few months here, and we will definitely come back.

Ambience was not good. Very loud with table conversations and music being played. Table was too small to hold the entrees we ordered. Food was good , but portions were on the smaller side. I asked for more broth and got it. Food was tasty.
