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.

Stopped in for a little breakfast and was not disappointed. Ordered the avacado toast and it was so delish. Perfectly seasoned and the eggs just the right level of runny for that sort of dish. Front of house was very attentive and kept my table clean and drinks topped off whenever it needed it.

Great food, excellent service - it was packed for brunch so it was loud and tables are extremely close to each other. I would like to go back for dinner.

6 of us celebrated a family birthday and had a wonderful time. Our table was in the back, so on the side of the hub bub, which was great for conversation. We had great service and good food. Will go back!

Just visited for my boyfriend’s birthday, we had an incredible time. The restaurant can be a bit loud , but what restaurant in center city isn’t. I have been to parc several times for brunch/ lunch and always enjoyed it. For dinner I’d highly recommend the escargot, duck and sea bass. Our service was impeccable and recommendations were spot on. Parc will always be in my top 5.

Servers were fairly pushy when we asked a single question about wine they were trying to upsell us to a very expensive bottle of wine. The question we had was very basic and the server became pushy and we had to ask her to give us time to decide to get her to leave the table. We also had a pretty poor location for a table considering we made an early night reservation we were stuck between two large parties. There were other open tables in more quiet locations but we were sat in between the large parties which was noisy and felt rushed to leave so they could have the table back.

It was very crowded, but our reservation was honored promptly. Service was excellent as was the food. We celebrated a birthday and loved all the desserts. The only drawback was the noise level making conversation difficult. Plan to return in warmer weather for dining outside.

Food was good, croque madame is always a good choice. If they say you're going to table 54 ask for a different table. It's in a corner and I basically touching someone at another table because of the spacing. Liubov was the server she was funny and attentive.

I ordered my usual curry chicken salad sandwich without the bread. It was served on top of greens as usual. But I was surprised that the portion on the plate was almost half as large as it always has been. When I mentioned it to someone else who eats there regularly they told me they had the same experience with their warm chicken salad the same week. A much smaller portion

We enjoyed our time at Parc. We were seated quickly and our server was engaging and responsive the entire evening. My wife had steak au poirve which was cooked to perfection! I had the sea bass at the suggestion of our server, and I was not disappointed. It was a great way to celebrate our retirement.

We were impressed by the extensive wine list and the number of wines that could be purchased by the glass. Our server was very friendly and answered the many questions that we had about the menu and made some suggestions that were greatly appreciated! Will definately go back.

my girlfriends and I really enjoyed our dinners. We all opted for the Wednesday special, Lobster Risotto and we were not disappointed. We shared the beet salad to start and then chose our own yummy desserts. Our waiter, William, was excellent. He was very knowledgable of the menu and answered all questions and gave recommendations. One friend is gluten free due to Celiac disease and William was very helpful with that as well.

Food and service were excellent. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a group of 4 very talkative individuals whose voices were extremely loud and who frequently burst into boisterous laughter. We were a group of 4 friends who were catching up after 2 months. We had to speak more loudly than was comfortable and pay close attention to each speaker in order to hold a conversation. That was frustrating and diminished our experience.

When Parc is good- it is very very good! I have been to Parc for lunch/brunch/late lunch 6 times in the past 1 1/2 years. The first experience was so perfect that I kept coming back. It felt like Paris and looked the part too. The food was delicious, nicely portioned with terrific choices and the server was wonderful. The next 4 times were not so nice - all the tables were pushed in so tightly that it was hard to move and hard to hear anyone at the table. The greeters were harried and unfriendly and acted like we were interrupting their day to ask for a reserved table...similarly the wait staff was abrupt and inattentive. I decided to try it one last time this past Sunday and voila! The tables were properly spaced, the waitress was attentive and couldn't be nicer. The greeters were friendly and immediately accommodating. I'm not sure what has caused the staff changes, but I am thrilled. We had a blast, such a lovely meal, nice server and such a wonderful atmosphere to chat in. We went at 10:30am...maybe it is a better experience earlier or later in the day? I will never go there again anywhere from noon-2:30.
