Thanks to Edwin who is a fantastic server! Food is always amazing and consistent. And special thanks to Lauren
Mmmmmmmoule frites. The stuff of dreams. The broth... i could swan dive into it. I come here whenever i get to be in Philly. The bread is amazing. Worth every carb and calorie.
Perfect spot for a leisurely lunch with good friends. The waitstaff didn't hurry us and we enjoyed the entire experience from start to finish. Parc offers a good value for amazing food. I always like to meet friends there because I know it will always be a good experience.
The ambiance is reminiscent of a truly fine Parisian café. The bread basket is delicious, so keep that in mind when ordering! Our waiter was attentive and efficient; would definitely recommend for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
The acoustics in the restaurant are terrible. Three people sitting at a table for four people have a difficult time hearing each other speaking. The restaurant was exceptionally quiet the night we were there.
Relaxing after a long day sightseeing!
We were celebrating Father’s Day and a work promotion so we wanted to hit a Steven Starr restaurant, Parc was our pick. We chose an outside table expecting a quiet night but we were next to a large crowd which was a bit over the top. Not the restaurant’s fault but I can’t image it would have been tolerated in doors.
We found the menu to be a bit limited. The Sea Bass was not very flavorful, but the warm shrimp salad and Macaroni and Cheese were excellent.
The house red blend was good, but not great.
Our server was the super star of the night which salvaged the evening. No dessert as we ate too much of the fresh bread.
If we return it will be for drinks and appetizers only.
Fathers Day! Every time we go, I order the Traut Amandine- delicious once again!
Father’s Day lunch for 2. We had the NY Strip with spinach and Potatoes Lyonnaise. The food was very good but the $100 lunch deserved a more moderate noise level.
We have been to Parc many times for various reasons; after shows, brunches, special occasions, etc. We have been there when it had been very crowded and reservations needed in addition to being there at more quiet times. The service is exceptional, individualized, attentive and we are never rushed. The food has always been darn good and worthy of its pricing. Have I complimented Parc enough? Damn good place -- enjoy.
Food was delicious and hot. It was crowded because it was Father’s Day but the service was very good. They move things along very nicely. Did not feel rushed.
I love the food and the atmosphere but everyone who I interacted with who worked there had a horrible attitude and the service was bad. I had a reservation and arrived on time. When I walked up to the front desk at the front door the women completely ignored me and proceeded to complain to each other in front of me that people "just stand and look at the restaurant" to which I replied "excuse me I have a reservation" and they told me to go inside. If they weren't there to help me then I'm not sure what their job was. I went to the desk inside and the same happened, I was ignored for quite a while and felt extremely awkward just standing there.
We spent a lot of our time thirsty and waiting for water and unable to eat our food because we didn't have any silverware. It took our waiter an extremely long time to bring us water and forks. We went for bunch and ended up spending 2.5 hours there just waiting.
Food was delicious and atmosphere was beautiful. I recommend going on a day or time that might not be as busy. Perhaps you'll have more luck with the staff. You can also order for delivery.
We were seated immediately our server Kyle was very tentative to our needs. The food was delicious it was a great time had by all for our Father’s Day celebration.
Great experience!! Great wait staff !! The noise level was a little high but the ambience and food made up for it .
We've been to Parc many times, the food and the service has never disappointment us.
Very Good every time !!!
Classic bistro menu and ambience. Excellent service. Food very, very good but not exceptional . A little pricey (prime rib daily special $40. In a casual bistro). Overall experience very nice.
I can't say enough good things about Parc. It was a beautiful day, and the walls/windows of the restaurant were totally open to the outside overlooking Rittenhouse Square. The service was top notch and the food was delicious. I had the beef bourguignon, which was fantastic. The beef was so tender, the sauce so flavorful and the pommes puree were smooth and creamy. The cocktails were yummy as well.
Enjoyed Parc very much. It was a beautiful day and we were seated by the open doorways , perfect for people watching. I had the veal which was perfect and my husband had the sea bass which was amazing. We will be back!
The food here never disappoints; mushroom tart, omelet, warm shrimp salad followed by their new Strawberry crunch glace dessert were all on point. Only disappointing aspect is the price of their wine...$18/glass for Sancerre Rose is a bit hefty, but I suppose it is Rittenhouse...
Always a wonderful experience. We were fortunate to be able to sit outside and enjoy the wonderful city and weather.
I love Parc. It has been a fun place for us for years. Anytime I’m visiting Philly, I’m dining at Parc.
Love this place! Drinks & food was amazing as always.
We celebrated a farewell for our daughter who was leaving for South America the next morning. The atmosphere was perfect, food great (though pricey), and our server, William, did an outstanding job. We will be back!
The sauce for the Duck L’Orange was a little on the salty side. But the chicken liver parfait was amazing.
Had a wonderful dinner here with friends and all our dishes were incredibly tasty. Love the entire scene and will definitely eat here again.
My husband had the oysters and got very ill that night and the next day. It was very noisy. The service was ok. The food choices were limited . We had a nice table, I like the round tables.
Waiter was super helpful
Parc is a lively French Bistro. Therefore the noise level is fairly loud but not prohibitive of a good conversation. The food is superb and the drinks are delicious. Try the Pamplousse. The staff are very attentive.
My only criticism is about the young lady at the front desk who was very snippy to me when I accidentally moved the menus she had sitting there. She also was on the phone and did not acknowledge us at all until I touched the menu. She rebuked me for doing so and then went back to her phone call. The hostess however was lovely and the rest of the staff were wonderful so it made up for the young lady.
I understand a busy place but your first impression is very important. The girls working the phones need to be told this and a friendly smile goes a long way.
Excellent food and service. Will definitely go again soon and take friends as well!
The service was bad. We had our food before we even had our drinks!
Parc is my favorite Philadelphia restaurant. Perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner with friends, family or business associates
Perfect. Lively but yet tranquil. Great place to start the day, or take a break in the middle of the day to unwind with great food that perfectly matches the ambiance. Love the fact that opera instead of pop music was playing. I’m not an opera fan particularly, but am sick of aggravating pop music (often too loud) played every where in our society. Park is a comfortable cultured retreat.
I love the European feel of this place. The food is always spectacular and the service is impeccable. It is my favorite place in the city to eat. I will definitely return here again and again.
Consistently excellent in all ways! Love the food, wine, atmosphere. We sat a table that bordered on the side-walk tables on a beautiful evening. Could not have been nicer.
Brought family visiting from overseas to one of my favorite places in the summertime. Great vibe with doors open. Wish they would expand their vegetarian offerings. I get the same foods each time
Always enjoy Parc.
View was lovely, beautiful day- loved our meal.
We had a lovely lunch with our daughter and granddaughters. Staff was attentive, as always. Food was amazing!
we were seated quickly and given a table next to street window in a relatively quiet place. our server was personable and quick to get whatever we requested. Wish we could return to Parc soon!
Fun French flair in Rittenhouse Square.
