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.

Parc never disappoints. From the atmosphere to the service and most of all the delicious food. Our waiter was through and honest and the managing staff assured us a wonderful celebration brunch. Parc has a way of making either a special occasion or an every day dining experience become an enjoyable memory.

Food was amazing! The bread basket is delicious-- highly recommend the French onion soup as well as the New York strip steak. Really nice environment that makes you feel like you're dining in a restaurant in Paris.

Dining at Parc is like having dinner at the house of an old friend. And that old friend is a great cook! The food is always wonderful, but the warmth of the servers and staff make the meal memorable. It was my daughter's 16th birthday, and the hostess went out of her way to be sure we had a table close to the street action, and stopped by often to be sure my daughter was having the night of her life! Thank you, Parc, for another great memory!

My wife's favorite restaurant. Made a reservation but decided to take a table on the sidewalk. They have a separate system for assigning outside tables, so it took almost an hour to get seated. Very pleasant dinner. Service attentive and organized. Wish that they had more vegetarian options, tired of pasta primavera, but it is a Frenchish restaurant.

We had a long standing reservation for 7:45 for a graduation celebration. When we arrived we were told our table was being cleared and set. 20 min later we were told the party hadn't left yet. Lots of excuses about the rain and it being graduation weekend. Well, they knew (should have known) that in advance. We waited for about an hour and then were given a 36 in round for 5 people literally in the middle of the floor. It wasn't big enough for the starter plates let alone the main serving. We pitched a collective fit and then were moved to a four top, another delay. We then were comp'd several plates we mostly didn't eat. When the food we ordered finally arrived it was very good, as was the table service, but by that time we were all pretty frustrated and the celebration definitely was tempered. The quality of the food and the comp'd dishes did not make up for the very bad treatment. So just know your reservation isn't worth anything at this supposedly first class establishment.

Parc is one of my favorite restaurants in Philadelphia. They have maintained the restaurant experience at a very consistent, high level for years now. Food was wonderful. We were there on a very pleasant late spring evening. The large doors to the sidewalk facing Rittenhouse Square were open and we asked to be seated near them, so we had the best of being inside and outside. It really does feel as if you are transported to Paris for an hour or two.

My spouse and I have gone to Parc annually for the past 5 years to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The atmosphere is lively, very cosmopolitan, the service wonderful and the food amazing. At brunch, they serve the best Quiche we've ever tasted.
We would definitely recommend Parc to a friend.

Food was delicious and service very good. Our only complaint was that it was our anniversary and they sat us at a table for 2 by the front door squeezed in between 2 other tables that were so close other diners were on top of us . As it was a very busy Saturday night so we did not ask to move.

Parc isn't what it used to be. This restaurant is inundated with locals and tourists who are jockeying for a sidewalk table. They have overloaded the main dining room with too many tables. Even with a reservation, we were seated in a high traffic area at a table so tiny that there wasn't even enough space for the menus, bread basket, and place settings without things falling off of the table. When the wait staff would come to set something down, they would wait and just look at us as if they were tacitly asking us to make space. It got kind of ridiculous. The food is still high quality, but a bit overpriced given how many other great options there are in the city. I don't believe Parc really shines that high above the rest of Philly's great food scene.

Food was excellent, highly recommend the warm shrimp salad, the duck l'orange, and the sea bass. We were there on a very busy night due to the arts fair in the square, so the noise level was high even for Parc, where we expect it. If you've never been and the weather is good, treat yourself to an outside table and enjoy a quieter experience and good people-watching.

Parc is a favorite for brunch, and we enjoyed the service, ambiance, this time. I changed from my usual order to the avocado toast, which was not great. Avocado was brown and warm, it had been sitting under the light for too long, and the bread was soggy. The eggs were perfectly poached, though. And of course the bread basket is wonderful. My daughter's meal was consistent with other visits, very nice.
