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

Monday at Parc means their fabulous Dover Sole Munierre. It is the main reason to do an early week dine-out.
Of course their cheese plate, shellfish and breads are worth the trip as well.
It's a great place to enjoy an excellent meal.
The only objection I can think of is that the place can get really noisy.

Parc truly makes one feel that one is dining in a cafe in Paris. The decorations were up for the holiday and that increased the tasteful ambiance of the space. I love the mushroom tart. The lobster bisque was also good. My husband enjoyed his beef bourginon, and our friends seemed to enjoy the ravioli and chicken.

The menu has enough variety to please most tastes. We enjoyed the lamb chops and duck breast entrees. Seating at the windows provides opportunity for people watching. The holiday decorations in Rittenhouse Square were an added bonus.

An enjoyable lunch spot. Noise level was a bit high, there were two of us trying to have a business conversation over tons of loud tables nearby. (We are in our early 40s and fit.). Food was great. Service was attentive and appropriate for our table.

Our server was the best we have had, ever. She was funny and professional, friendly and helpful. We had the seafood for 2, and it was insane. The plate was the size of the table. Appetizers were outstanding, and we had the mushroom tart and the onion soup. Desserts were delightful.

Had breakfast/brunch at Parc for my daughter's birthday. It was the Saturday after Thanksgiving so it was hopping! Service was not up to par - usually we don't have to wait so long for attention, but it was jammed - standing room only. The breakfast menu is outstanding - each item more delicious than the next. Lunch items were also offered, but who can resist their eggs benedict or their french toast with sauteed apples! Loved it as always!

We chose Parc Restaurant for our Thanksgiving Holiday meal while visiting our son in Philadelphia. The ambiance is always appealing and the food is delicious. We would highly recommend Parc for any meal and any time. It's a special place.

This was our third Thanksgiving at Parc and it was very good. There was some miscommunication with our server that was a little frustrating, but, overall, it was a great time. Desserts were yummy, and our entree's were very good, as well. We were able to sit by the window, which is always a treat at Parc.

Going to Parc is always a treat. My favorites are the Chicken Liver Mousse - light and flavorful, just delicious! and the Mushroom Tart - lovely puff pastry topped with mushrooms and cheese, perfect. The French Onion soup is also very good. it is a French restaurant on Rittenhouse Square with sidewalk cafe seating. The waitstaff is always very friendly and attentive - nothing is too much trouble. While I have yet to get off the Brunch menu, I would not hesitate to recommend this place for any kind of meal - I am sure their quality is across the board.

We are 2 French people in the USA since 3 months and we missed our country. This restaurant was an awesome experience, where we had pleasure to taste again our baguette, charcuterie and desert. The service was excellent and the atmosphere also. We strongly recommend this restaurant !!!

Everything was amazing, but I would ask for more vegan options. There was only one thing on the menu (a green salad with no protein). The chef did make me a tasty vegan pasta, but I would have really liked to have seen more options.
