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.

Parc Ratings and Reviews

Such a great experience at Parc. As a vegetarian I was concerned that there would be limited options for me but Parc did not let me down. I chose Parc because my best friend from college was coming from overseas and wanted to give her the "Rittenhouse" experience. Parc did not disappoint. Our server was the best! Will definitely be back!

Brought my nieces for Parc's chocolate milk shakes, which they say are the best in the city. Our brunch of eggs Benedict, and Kir Royals were delicious. Parc is one of my favorites but I still have hard time with the decibel levels.

Food was OK we had gotten there for the menu before the 5 o'clock dinner starts so there wasn't a whole lot to choose from my wife had the trout fish with Buttery string beans for $27 I use OpenTable for just about every type of restaurant we go out to season 52 is one of the places we like to go to most often their trout entrée is $18 more on the plate when it comes to the fish itself and vegetables potatoes etc. let me not forget my favorite chilled shots of Grey goose that I like to have with dinner it never makes the night go well when your alcohol taste like metal and water if you get my drift.

We enjoyed another meal! Parc is our go to restaurant because we know the food and service will be always be excellent.
Our waiter seems to be able to read our mind and we just love having him for our waiter a few times.
Thank you for helping me celebrate my husband's birthday too!

Overall I have very happy with Parc over the years. This morning's breakfast was disappointing because the omelette was not prepared as I had requested. For Parc's reputation and prices, I thought it was totally unsatisfactory.

Service, as always, is outstanding here. Food was delicious! The new mushroom tart for an app was wonderful. The onion soup is my favorite in the city. They also made my boyfriend's birthday very special- surprised us with some free yummy macaroons and a candle at the end.

We visit Parc often. On this occasion - a mid-morning Sunday breakfast - we were disappointed with our seating location (right next to the front door and it was COLD outside), our service (had to ask 3 times to get a bread basket, which finally arrived just as our meals did), inattentive service (water glasses never refilled), and mistake on the order (cheese topped the eggs when we made perfectly clear that they were to be ungarnished). Even though we had a reservation, and we called to confirm just before arriving, we were told there were no seats available for us other than by the door.

We stopped in for a late light dinner, shared a delicious salad and a brautifully prepared and sauced halibut dish along with the best bread basket ever. Helpful waitress. Good house wine. Very noisy. Handsome very French look.

The Parc's traditional French brasserie decor is charming and fun, and the location across from Rittenhouse Square is a bonus. The food is very good - close to authentic French plus small or large plate options that allow for variety and sharing. Excellent service, too. While the noise level gets in the way of an intimate conversation, it is not unpleasant or excessive. Highly recommended.

We were seated near the door and window, and it was very cold. I ordered coffee to warm me, but the coffee was not hot. Parc would probably be fine on warmer days , but last Saturday was not the day after to be seated near door and window. Bread was excellent.

They do a good job concentrating on a limited number of things but making sure that all of them are very well executed. The service was attentive and friendly, and the restaurant is located in a very attractive area. Overall a great experience once again.

Parc is a lovely place with terrific service and a great view of Rittenhouse Square with a bit of snow falling to add to the atmosphere. Despite being very large, it is well-appointed and reasonably quiet on a very busy night.
Alas, it is no place for a vegetarian much less a vegan. The only non-meat entree was an uninspired omelette. My guests chose steaks and said they were fine. The wine list is ok. It feels as if the place could use a spurt of invigoration and innovation, not so much that it changes the character of this esteemed restaurant, but just to bring a bit of excitement to the menu and wine list.

This was our second time at Parc and we loved it just as much as the first. Our food was delicious - my beef was succulent and my partners oysters and mussels were fresh and delicious. Our server was attentive, friendly, and professional. Overall a lovely place for an upscale dinner.

Great place for New Years Eve. The regular menu is available along with a few specials. The atmosphere is festive, with party accessories (hats, horns, etc) and a complimentary glass of champagne at midnight. Beautiful view of Rittenhouse Square decorated with holiday lights and excellent service.
