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 now accepted for outdoor tables.

    Wonderful evening with my husband. Food is delicious and beautifully presented. Looks and taste as if the chef put live and much attention into the meal. We just did not like noise level of the music.

    Parc is always great but our server Lou was outstanding! We were a boisterous group celebrating a special occasion. Lou understood that and went above and beyond: advising on the menu, and drinks, and alternatives or adjustments, being warm and attentive, putting everyone at ease.

    Although it was a weeknight all the outside tables and inside tables were full. The noise level was deafening and it made it totally intolerable to have a conversation. The food was tasty, and the portions were large but the service was rather slow over a half hour until our appetizer arrived after we ordered it. They were accommodating as one of the items ordered wasn’t as expected and they modified it at no charge and provided a new item.

    We have been coming to Parc way before my son used to be their beverage manager. The restaurant has such a wonderful European vibe, which we so enjoy. All of the staff are friendly and appropriately helpful. Next comes the food. It is consistently delicious with a large enough variety so you can come regularly and try different things on the menu and then come again to repeat. Also, take home any bread. I always get the cranberry walnut that stays fresh for days or it can be frozen. I cannot praise this restaurant enough. Whether you live in the city or suburbs, plan on a comprehensive gastronomy experience!

    Only real negative part of experience was that they sat us next to the bussing station after having had a reservation and telling them that it was our anniversary and there were plenty of great empty tables. Plate sizes are also very drastically different in size. Nicoise salad was huge and the scallops entrée was miniscule (5 small scallops). I was going to order the lamb shank entrée but saw the table next to us order it and it could have easily fed 2+ people. Went with the trout, very good. Also had the sardine app and they were straight out of the can. A bit casual for a $19 app. Atmosphere is lovely, high noise level which I hate but the gf enjoys so to each his own.

    We dined outside in a chalet which we really enjoyed. Our meals were delicious, from appetizers to dessert (especially the cream brûlée). The trout was prepared perfectly as was the beef bourguignon. Our server, Brandon, was great! He was knowledgable and made sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our evening.

    Our go to order from Parc is the Steak frites and the Salmon but because it was so warm outside and we opted to dine outside with our dog in tow we tried some new seafood dishes that were served cold and they did not disappoint. The shrimp for the shrimp cocktail were huge and the crab and avocado ricette was delicious! My wife also tried a salad with tuna and hard boiled eggs on top that I can't quite remember the name of and she thoroughly enjoyed it. Our server was very attentive and they even brought my wife out a little plate of macaroons for her birthday. We look forward to going back very soon!

    The fish was not fresh and the rest of the meal was only fair. That put a damper on the evening. We went for my husband’s birthday, which I told them through OpenTable, and it was overlooked until we said something. The wait staff was amazing as was the setting. Poor food quality will keep us away in the future.

    Parc was an excellent example of a modern French-American brasserie. Our cocktails: the hummingbird and an Aperol spritz were excellent. The bread basket was excellent enough to warrant mentioning. The escargot comes already out of its shell, marinading in a small cast iron pot of garlic-hazelnut butter; it was an excellent introduction to escargot for a beginner and satisfying enough for someone who loves the dish. The duck confit was the standout of the meal: fatty without being greasy, and absolutely loaded with flavor. Our biggest let down was the salmon which while good, simply did not live up to the standards of the rest of the meal. Of note, Parc is very loud – at least on a Saturday afternoon – I would not recommend this location for a quiet date night. However, it is an excellent location for a more energetic date. The central location is nice and the ambience more generally is incredible if you can forgive the hustle and bustle of a packed restaurant. Parc is an incredibly accessible entry into French brassiere-style cooking and is one of Philadelphia’s best eateries; I highly recommend.

They gave us a free round of drinks which was nice. The spaghetti bolognese was amazing. I can’t wait to go back.

    We had a reservation for indoor seating at 5:00 pm on a Thursday before the attending a Philadelphia Orchestra concert. It was our first visit to Parc. The reservation was made a week in advance, and we were exactly on time. Parc is very large, and there were many vacant tables at that hour. We were sent to the relatively dark back room, to a table just outside a busy, noisy food-preparation area (evidently a kitchen). We asked to be reseated. We were shown to a table about 15 feet from the first one, directly across from a smaller but still busy service area where staff accessed tableware to reset tables. On the other side was a window completely covered by a dingy lace curtain that could not be opened. Again we asked to be reseated. We were finally shown to a table in the bright, airy front dining room, fully open to a glorious spring afternoon and facing Rittenhouse Square. It was still less than half full. We are white and elderly (age 70, no canes or walkers). We were appropriately dressed for the restaurant. We can only conclude that our age made us undesirable customers in the eyes of the particular young man on the reception desk. I write to caution Open Table users (especially older people) that they should consider including a specific note about seating preference when they reserve at Parc.
