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.

Food was okay. Nothing special, but good nonetheless. Service was excellent and the waiter was very knowledgeable about wines and suggestions so no complaint there. Have eaten here before but only for brunch, so dinner was not as special as I remembered from 10 years ago! Great ambiance, just not memorable food.

Sharita, our server, was friendly, attentive and fun. Every experience at Parc is memorable and really nice. The food is always impeccably prepared and presented; the drinks are a perfect complement as well.

Parc is always our go to for special occasion brunches and as always, it did not disappoint! Food was amazing as always, but their safety precautions really stood out this time. We were able to be seated in a chalet which made our immunocompromised guests feel at ease. Perfect for our joint birthday/graduation celebration!

The best restaurants tend to do a few things very well. This can certainly be said of Parc. The menu has limited options but everything we sampled was amazing. Every bite was packed with flavor and nothing disappointing.

If you're undecided on entress, try the Beef Bourguignon... it was so tender and flavorful, I'd compare it to meat candy.

The service we received from Tammy was incredible as well. We will certainly by returning in the future.

Parc was awesome! I went for lunch with my mom and had a great time and delicious food. We had a bottle of champagne, oysters , salmon tartine, cheeseburger, and creme brulee. Our server knew I’m getting married and also sent macarons on a plate that said congrats with a candle! Very sweet!

Avoid the sardines. They actually place a tiny tin can on a plate with a few blocks of bread...voila! Thumbs down.

Phenomenal atmosphere for a business lunch. Wasn’t biggest fan of the sauce on the roast beef sandwich but everything was great. Great staff/service.

- born and raised in suburban Philly, and we make it a point to find great local restaurants whenever we dine in town. We've tried most of the big ones and many hidden gems, but our go to in center city is often Parc - brunch, lunch, dinner, it never fails to be excellent.

Even as restaurants in town open after the COVID drama, and so many struggle to staff sufficiently, Parc was busy, fully staffed and the food and service were equally excellent. It was like a duck on the water - calm to observers, but no doubt paddling frantically under the surface.

If you find yourself trying to pick someplace to eat downtown and don't want to risk making a mistake, go to Parc. Although you pay for the experience, Stephen Starr restaurants are consistently excellent.

Enjoyed lunch in a chalet. Food was delicious - shrimp salad and nicoise salad. Server was pleasant, helpful, and courteous. I will return and recommend it to others. Note that if you come for second shift, you might have to wait for another party to leave.

Parc remains solid during the pandemic and as we ease out of it! We indulged in its still-amazing bread basket; some of our continued favorites: French Onion Soup, Moules Frites, Steak Frites; and tried a new-to-us dessert: Fig and Honey Tart (macaron, honey and vanilla ice cream, caramelized honey and fig jam, fresh figs). Delish!

If you are looking for something to new to try at Parc - try the veal - it is exceptional and very tender - the sauce is flavorful but not overpowering - if you like mushrooms this is also a must to try! Fabulous friendly service and great cocktails - loved the Moscow Mule

On a chilly day, we had brunch in a cozy chalet outdoors with heater. (You have to request the chalet in advance.) The food was outstanding - eggs benedict, omelet, lobster, crab and avocado. Server was courteous, prompt, and helpful. I will return and recommend it to others.

Parc was delicious! We originally had outdoor dining reservations but it was cold and drizzly, they were able to accommodate us inside since we had such an early reservation (5:45) but said if we waited any longer to decide the inside would probably be full due to Covid capacity restrictions. Notable menu items include the French onion soup, sea bass entree, and the lava cake. The complimentary breadbasket is also fantastic! Expensive to come here frequently but great to celebrate a special event or a date night in the city! Will be back!
