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.

Always a nice time at Parc. Unlike many other places that are struggling to figure out outdoor dining, Parc has always done this well.

We had a great experience. The service was fast, efficient and still friendly. The outdoor seating was not crowded (we can’t wait to dine indoors again!). The food was perfectly portioned and came out at the perfect temperature. We ordered and had our food within 10 minutes. We were never rushed to leave our table.

Although the food was very good as always, on my last trip with my sister we were seated directly in the sun with no shade during the hottest part of the day. When we were first seated we politely made it known to the hostess that we were very susceptible to sunburn and were concerned about this table choice. She indicated that due to the pandemic there was limited seating availability. As we sat and observed the patrons around (most of whom were in full or partial shade) we realized that they were seating parties of 2 at the tables for 4 which were in the shade. Due to the excessive heat and relentless sun, the usually lovely experience was a bit of a nightmare. We feel that this was an easily remedied situation that was ignored, and this visit was unfortunate.

Outdoor dining during COVID-19 restrictions went without a hitch! Thankfully we scored a table for two in the shade. Service was great, as usual.

Three times, strike OUT! Bad management, trying to turn tables and doesn't care about their patrons. Prices way too high for the food that you receive. Homeless come by and either beg for food/money or play instruments, and management does not step in while you are having dinner. This restaurant is right of the park, yes. But you can't treat people bad just because of your location and charge the prices that you do for mediocre food. Complete disappointment, won't be returning.

I would have never thought I'd write such a negative review about one of our favorit places but we have to keep it real and even the best sometimes fail to deliver. It was supposed to be an anniversary lunch and we had high expectations that usually get met at Parc. This time was different. Our waiter took forever to even start bringing water. The bread came before we had utensils and my drink came after we got our starter, which also took forever but was delicious I might add. Then another 30 min 'til my pepper-steak arrived, which was inedible. I hardly was able to get the VERY sharp knife through the meat and they offered to replace it. Considering all the wait-time and frustration I agreed to take it home and they actually offered to take it off the bill, which we refused. We will of course go back but it was not exactly a desirable event.

Parc is as exceptional as it's always been and the outdoor seating is lovely. Everything we ordered was delicious and perfect timed. It does get sunny between umbrella shade so more umbrellas might be nice for the remainder of summer. Angel, our server, was friendly and professional - kept us on our tight schedule and anticipated everything we could've asked for.

Folding chairs at the temporary tables in 18th St are uncomfortable. Otherwise, outstanding food, service, and location.

Limited menu on weekends? We were there at 3 pm on Saturday and it was a brunch and limited entree menu. Service was wonderful. Not all tables were distanced enough from other diners.

This was our first time going into the city during Covid 19. It was our Anniversary and Parc seemed a perfect option. The outside seating is lovely and the chairs are real French Bistro style. I had the steak frites and my Husband had the bass. Both were delicious. We also LOVED the homemade breads which in most restaurants is ordinary.

Parc did not disappoint. The French onion soup and trout amandine was so good and full of flavor. Also, the mussels were outstanding!!! Our waiter Zach heard it was our one year engagement anniversary and surprised us with dessert that said congratulations and happy anniversary. He paid close attention to detail and really cared about making us feel special! He even gave us a comped bottle of water because he saw I was pregnant. Great service and great food. Loved this French Steven start gem
